HONOLULU. JULY 17, 1894.
THE NEW CONSTITUTION.
' We do not propose to annoy
-ur readers by entering Into a
Ihmugb criticism of the absurd
articles of the constitution fram
cd by Dole, ilcStocker, Thurs
ton, "Kennedy and other gents.
-Article 101, has already had our
attention. Thero it is provided
that no citizen 'shall be eligible
" to be a juror until he shall havo
taken the following oath:
I do solemul' swear,(or affirm )
in the presence of the Almighty
God. that I will support the Con
stitntion. Laws and Government
6i the Republic .of Hawaii; and
will not, either directly or in
directly, encoumgo or nssist in
the restoration or establishment
'of a monarchical form of govern
ment iu the Hawaiian Islands.
The. list of jurors to servo at
(tlo August term must be drawn
today to comply with tho law.
"We more than doubt tho poss
ibility of the courts to muko up a
jury according to law, fulfilling
the qualifications set forth in tho
constitution and acceptable to
tie judge presiding, and tho
attorneys for prosecution nnd
defense. And what are you then
. going to do'about it Mr. W. 0.
However, there are other
clauses of more importance to
fih'o- country at this date. Wo
Hive- been asked to publish the
qualifications of voters for repre
sentatives'! and wo comply below
urith tho request. It will bo seen
that Mr. Bole' has disfranchised
all the Hnwaiians who may yet be
alive, and who were born before
schools and civilizat on became
general here. Wo are daily
publishing in another column
the "Blue Laws" of Hawaii,
framed fifty yoars ago by tho
early missionaries and by the
father of A. F. Judd. It is
astonishing to find Mr. D )le, who
ied to apply tho most derisive
language to those laws, to-day
fathering a constitution which is
li-ss liberal, less civilized aud less
Immune. Tho franchise under
all former constitutions has been
granted without an educational
salification to Hawaiians, born
previous to 1S45. Mr. Dolo has
hanged that principle, and the
bnnge does not reflect favorably
n him. That tho Japanese resi
dents hero have received the
. sight of votiug cannot bo doubt-
3 by anybody reading article 74.
These are the qualifications of

vided for in Article 17.
Failure No. 2.
It seems that tho government
is desirous. of getting into a row.
UTo have tried to avoid the clash
which must ultimately happen"
if the present line of policy and
tho preseut tone of tho official
papers are to be continued.
Enough has been said as far as
tho jury is concerned. Mr.
Hatch hns frilly recognized his
insane standing, and ho admits
that his spite against the editor
of tho ETolomua, got tho, best of
his common sense.
The Hamakna term is virtually
pan, and tho cases' which were to
be tried before a Hawaiian' Jury
havo gone over to the Hilo term
six months from now.
As stated before tho Court in
Honolulu, has been unable to gbt
o panel of jurors to serve at the
term next month. Mr. Hatch
has mado an egregious nss of
himself and he knows it. Wo are
read and willing to helpjmy
combination that advances the
prosperity of this country. We
havo used common sense in our
endeavors to frustrate tho false
ideas advocated and circulated
by Mr. Bush and company, but
every effort of our. every struggle
and every attempt to "smooth"
things over, have been cancelled
and put to naught when the pro
position was made to try Hawai
ians before a foreign Jury.
If this principle was applied to
both sides,, we might say nothing
against it. Foreigners will not
be tried by a Hawaiian J ury nor
will Hawaiians be tried by hades.
It is a great pity that the
foolishness of Mr. Hatch a man
without foresight, without polit
ical sense andwithout, ordinary
decency, sboald previal. All that
we have tried todo.in establishing
a stable government, is lost The
uncertainty and strife come to
the fore again. The. Hawaiians
mil die. before tfey give up ike
right t be tried by their country
men, and ire don't blame them !

Even Mr. Castle will hardly
have the gall to mention the
intelligence ofNMr. Dole. His
energy has been commented on in
this paper before today. His
honesty has been well illustrated
when he broke oath after oath,
and since 18S7, when he was iu
the secret councils of tho rebels,

The Advertiser wno catches
a persons eve usually wins a
customer. Many different styles
of advertising have been adopted
aud with more or less success, by
the believers in the use of prin
ters ink. The manufacturers of
Pears Soap, for instance, occasion
ally buy paintings that have
been on exhibition in tho Pari's
Salon and have lithographs made
from them for the purpose of
bringing their product before
the people. In addition to such
side issues, Pear'spends hundreds
thousands of dollars annually
among the newspapers and mag
azines. Some years ago tho Agents
of certain article on sale in New
York made a hit in advertising by
having on Broadway during bns
iness hours two fatluessly dressed
Negroes weariug very high collars,
on the backs of which was prin
ted "Use Smiths Pills." The
idea was novel and the public
caught on. Bising Sun Stove
Polish has been kept before the
public lor years through persis
tent, and sometimes expensive
advertising. Twenty odd 3'ears
ago" the manufacturers of this
polish started half a dozen men
across the oruimeut to paiut signs
on rocks and fences. The Aer
motor Co., of Chicago have in
creased its sales more than five
hundred per cent in two years by
the use of printers ink. We
believe we have boeu instrumen
tal in increasing the sdes of the
Aemotor by keeping everlastingly
at it in Hawaii.
We do not wish to say that ad
vertising will sell any manufac
tured article; thero is no use
spending money in advertising
'cheap and nasty" goods bo
cause the people will dot be hood
winked. If Haviland China was
not the superior article it is, all
our advertising of it' would not
have sold the thousands of pieces
that wo have. We simply call
the attentiou of the people to it
and its superior quality is appar
ent to the customer directly a
piece of it is.examined.
Printers ink has helped the sale
of tho James Locked Fence but
it wotdd not htve donesso if it had
bean as flimsy as the or dinay wire
fence. First; the economy there
is in building it recommends
it to the plantation manager and
then its durability' clinches the
the sale If the stays and wash
ers cost as much as an ordiuary
redwood post our sales of the
material would not have reached
such enormous proportions.
Onr average sale of the Pansy
Iron Stove is about two a day the
3'ear xound. If was not the
best iron stove on the market we
would not sell. that many in six
indnths. Advertising is the tip
to the public the good points in
the article sells it just as the good
qualities of the Fischer Steel
Kange make it a desirable article
for people who wish to economise
in the use of fuel.
We buy only what Las proven
good after people in the United
States or Europe have given it a
trial; we profit by their experince
if tha articles are goood we boy
and sell them; if "they are poor
we steer clear of them. When,
we advertise an article it is to at
tract attention to it; the' news
paper ;s tho. button we-push, the
salesman does the rest.
Persistent advertising conpled
with the article being a superior
one'hds sold thousands of the
Frank Walcot Emory File. If it
had been no better than an or
dinary scytha stono we probably
would not hare sold twenty.
When a man finds ont'that his
table knives may be kept sharp at
all times at aa expense of fifty
cents and a very little elbow
grease he is quite willing to try
