Honolulu, where he was sent to
post himself on the subject of

it would be a great addition to our
commercial advantage. Annexa

by the residents.
It is a mistake to suppose that
the dispensary is "as strong as it
ever was." It has received so
many backeets, so many knock-out
blows that public sentiment is fast
crystallizing against it. A good
law, the best law ever put on the
statute books of this State for the
conduct of the liquor question, it
has been abominably if not crim
inally administered, and that it
fails to fill the bill is entirely due
to this failure of administration.
"What's best administered's best."
William C. Whitney returned to
New York from Europe last week
and expressed his views upon the
political situation as follows :
"Restoration of the Democracy to
power depends on the party itself.
If harmony comes it will win. I
should say that the tendency ol
Democratic thought is toward a
restoration of harmony. To that
ex.?nt the status of the party as a
political organization is improv
ed." In reply to the question,
"DOP? thc complete restoration of
harmony in the Democratic party
deperd upon a change in the issues
upon which its national battle
was fought last year?" Mr.
Whitney said: "I believe the
issues will be changed."
Henry Clews, the eminent bank
er of Nev York, in a recent letter
.ays: "I venture the prediction
that the coming spring business
of this country will be the largest
on record." He makes a strong
showing for his views and con
cludes as follows :
"All these factors comb; ned fur
nish a strong backing to the side
of confidence, and take the shaip
edge off the bears' weapons, which
have lately been irresponsible ru
mors. The market has already
suffered a very heavy decline, and
will soon have a fair advance as ?
natural reaction at least.

following results :

FROM REPUBLICAN STAND
In the recent elections in New
York, Ohio, and other States, lead
ing republicans affect to see "bug
gars." Chaunce Depew, of New
York, says :
"As to the elections, they prove
with reasonable clearness that if
the Republican party permanently
acquiesces in the exist.ng gold
standard and gives up the struggle
for bimetallism, that party will be
defeated in thf* congressional elec
tions of 1898 and in the presiden
tial election of 1900. The silver
monomelalli8ts will then take pos
session of all branches of the na
tional govert ment and a free coin
age bill with silver made the ten
dar for all debts, public and pri
vate, domestic and foreign, will
pass both houses of congress and
be tsigued by President Bryan."
Senator William E. Chandler,
"With an alarming falling off
of the Republican vote in the State
(New York), with heavy losses in
New Jersey, Ohio and other states,
the republican party is confronted
with the incontrovertible truth
that Bryanism and bimetallism
are not dead. It warns them that
they must take steps at once, and
emphatically, to settle this cur
rency question beyond any hope
of re-opening it."
In One Day.
Gall for Cotton Growers.
The following was issued by Mr.
By direction of South Carolina
Cotton Growers' convention, which
assembled in Columbia Nov. 10,
1897, I hereby call upon every
cotton grower and each person
interested in producing cotton to

court houses on the first
Monday of December for the
purpose of effecting a permanent
organization to join with the other
southern States in taking such
action as will enable the cotton

"what does this fellow mean?"
"Why, I mean, my lord," said the
witness, "that as deep as he thought
