The Life'oflhe Land it Esiabiisliea
HONOLULU, JULY 19, 1894.
It is expected that the?conncils
-to-day have passed a law which
enab'o the government to
carry out the infamous policy
laid down in the new "republic
an" constitution for the establish
ment of part san juries. There
is no doubt that the great major
ity of the government supporters
possessed of some grain of intel
ligence have realized the mistuke
committed by Mr. Hatch and
thonghtlessly endorsed by the
convention. A prominent member
ofthe sa d convention nd-nitted
yesterday that !e voted for Hatch's
jury amendment withont giving
it a thought. It was "something"
about jurors and consequently he
belioved that any proposition of
- Mr. Hutch was good and proper
and that a well known lawyer like
the minister would know more
about judiciary business than the
la)' members of the convention.
And this view was undonbted'y
taken by many other delegates
and councillors and it furnishes
a good illustration of the slipshod
mauner in which the constitution
was framed by men who may be
highly respectable i their nar
row spheres of life but who like
all men without much experience
and without thorough education
take anything coming from a
"professional" man as gospel.
However the blunder is made
and the question is how to get
out of the dilemma created.
We have looked over the jury
list now drawn and it takes only
a cursory -glance to see that only
a very small minority will be
found willing to take the oath
and qualify as jurors. Wo have
no doubt that a jury could be
made up by American League
men or vagrants from the water
front who undoubtedly would be
happy-to earn $2.00 a day by
serving as jurors but although
such a move might suit the gov
ernment vory well in regard to
cases against political onemies if
might prove objectionable, and
dangerous in cases whore the in
terests of tho friends oi the gov- L
ernment or Mr. Hatch's clients
were concerned and in which in
telligence and an average under
standing would "be necessary, and.
But why not drop the provision
in the constitution for this term
Vt least. Three months from
-now the situation" will be differ
ent Hud there will be no difficul
ties of the nature referred la.
The greatest number of cases to
be tried were instituted previous
to the proclamation of the consti
tution and the gigantic brain of
Mr. Hatch needs not be very
much exerted in au attempt to
"stretch" article 92 ' a little and
xuke it suit the occasion. The

which we think can be applied

A Braying Ass.
Mr. JohnE. Bush is devoting
considerablo-space in the Ka Leo
in abus-ng the Holojiua and
everybody connected with it He
is perftctly welcome to do so and
if it amuses and satisfs him we
sincerity encourage him to keep
it up. At the same we should
suggest to the wise statesman and
. -,, i .
politician-with-M-record that it
would be to the interest and
best welfare of his Hawaiian
readers if he would outline his
policy as to the future of Hawaii
and te-I the people what to do.
A man of his superior intelligence
must certainly have made up his
mind what is to be done. We
humbly suggested to Mr. Bush
and his equally brilliant satellite
Mr. NaWahi that it was about
time either to fight or vote.
Fighting is againbt the religion
of the two patriots what a con
venient thing religion becassion
nlly is and voting is against their
principles (it is surprising that
this little country can hold such
great men, including their "priu
ciples ") All we desire is to get
the two truly Christian leaders
to come forward and tell us what
to do, and when to do it. And,
alas, all the answer we got is the
spectacle of seeing the two lead
ers kick up their heels in a most
undignified manner, pick up their
asinine head ornaments and bray
out in hysterical tones: "We are
the people, Bah Ha ! Don't
listen toanybody else, Bah Ha!
Down with the haoles who cry
fight or vote. Stay with ns and
it will all come out in the wash
Bah ha ha !" And
while the political grass grows
under the heels of the asses the
Hawaii political cow dies.

Now if this flagrant lie had
simply been tho product of one
of the ordinary partisan corres
pondents who infest this country
we should have taken no notice
of it. But the editorial is in an
other column of the same issue
claimed to be based upon state
ments made by Captain King the
Minister of Interior. We can
hardly believe that any man
holding a high position like Mr.
King deliberately should have
fathered the insulting statement
against the officers and ship of a
friendly nation but this is what
the Globe correspondent writes:
The race for Nicker island bet
ween the Hawaiian steamer Iwa
lani and tho Britisli cruiser Cham
pion resulted in favor of the Ha
waiian whose flagnow floats over
this desolate rock inmidocean.
Two days ago the Iwalani
returned with the welcome intel
ligence that she won the race and
secured the island. Minister of.
tho Interior King gave your cor
respondent an account of the trip.
"It was an exciting voyage for

followed in our wake, but though
she put on considerable steam we

The Advertiser who catches
a persons eye usually wins a
customer. Many different styles
of advertising have been adopted
and 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 the 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, Peat'spends hundreds
thousands of dollars annually
among tho 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 bus
iness hours two failuessly dressed
Negroes wearing very high collars,
on the backs of which was prin
ted "Use Smiths Pills." The
idea was novel und the public
caught on. Rising Sun Stove
Polish has been kept before the
public, for years through persis
tent, and sometimes expensive
advertising. Twenty odd years
ago the manufacturers of this
polish started half a dozen men
across the orniment to paiut,sjgns
on rocks and fences. Tho Aer
motor Co. , of Chicago have in
creased its sales more than five
hundred per cent in two years- bv
the use of printers ink. We
believe we have boon 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; there is no use
spending money in advertising
"cheap and nasty" goods be
cause the people will not 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 we have. We simply call
the attention 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 tho sale
of the James Locked Fence but
it would not have dones so if it had
been as flimsy as the or dinaywire
fence. First; the economy there
is in building, it recommends
it to the plantation manager and
then its durability clinches the
the sale If tho stays arid wash
ers cost as much as an ordinary
redwood post our sales of the
material would not have reached
such enormous proportions.
Our average salo of the Pansy
Iron Stove is about two a day the
3rear round. If was not the
best iron stove on tho market we
would not sell that many in six
months. Advertising is the tip
tn the public the good points in
the article sells it jiut as the good
qualities of the Fischer Steol
Bange make it a tlesirable article
fur people who wish to economise
in the. use of fuel.
"WTe buy only what has proven
good after people in the United
States or Europe have given it a
trial; we profit by their experince
if the articles are goood we bny
and sell them; if tbey are poor
we steer clear of them. When
we advertise an article it is to at
tract attention to it; the news
paper ;s the button we posh, the
salesman does the rest.
Persistent advertising coupled,
with the xrt'.cla being a superior
one has sold thousands of the
Frank Walcot Emory File. If it
had beea -no better than an or-"
dinarv scytha stone sra probably
would nof have sold twenty.
