but its mission will not be perfect until
it has turned the stupid Advertiser
irom the error of its ways and sins.
Chemist Shorey is doing excellent
work for the board of health, as "will be
seen by his report for August, the salient
features of which are published
elsewhere. Exposures of food adulterations
interest every person In the community
and too much work cannot be
dono in this direction. We bespeak
for Mr. Shorey 's report a. careful perusal.
The board of health cannot spend
money that will meet the approval of
the people more generally than that
expended on this work.
The exhaustive article on the Bishop
museum and the Kamehameha schools
in yesterday's Republican has been
widel -read. These institutions are
under the management of a board of
trustees consisting of C. R. Bishop, S
M. Damon, J. 0. Carter and W. F. Allen,
with Mr. Damon as treasurer and
general financier. The schools are for
native children only. The number Is
limited to sixty, all of whom must le
over 12 years of age. It is a noble
charity that has already done much
good and is destined to do much more.

DEBOLT'S CASE CONSIDERED.
The editorial advertisement given
J. T. DeBolt's record as a successful
counsel in numerous causes in the supreme
court by the chrome organ of a
noisy and unsuccessful minority is well
calculated to arouse the risibilities of
the bar who know the character of the
cases which enabled that worthy and
studious gentleman to be heard in the
highest court of .Hawaii. In nearly
every instance it may be found by investigation,
by any one of the half
dozen people who are Interested in Mi.
DeBolt's campaign, that his twenty odd
cases were trifling as to the amount
involved and did not present any ques
lion for decision not in the horn
Perhaps if Mr. Gear pursued the
prize box system of practicing law.
paying Chinese and Japanese large
commissions for such inconsequential
matters as might be brought to him
lor attention in the police court, he
would stand as a rival of the gentleman
who has the marvelous
calendar of twenty-one cases. But
Mr. Gear has pursued the dignified
and ethical practice of reading his law
books and of accepting such briefs as
might be brought to him in the usual
and proper way, instead of going hot
on the trail after cases, scattering fees
and rewards here and there to any enterprising
Oriental who would assist
aim to "tree" a case.
There is a wide dlfferencfbetween
putting live cents worth of lard In a
tin bucket and serving in the role of
a circuit judge Ip a prosperous and
growing tit. Mr. DeBolt will learn
this In time. In the meanwhile will
the diurnal chrome inform a nervous
public why the bar association considered,
it necessary to adopt the following
"It shall be deemed unprofessional
for a member of the bar to "give to any
person a uouus, fee or reward for any
business wbjcb may be brought to him
by such person, unless such person is
a member of the bar."
As a matter of fact the "devil's partner's"
organ is blindly opposing Mr.
Gear with tig other apparent motive
than to be on the wrong side and to
help Its democratic friends, as witness
its inability to give correctly the initials
of the gentleman it is advocating
tor the high position of circuit judge.
MAY EBADICAXE MONOOjSE.
One of the great pests of the prairie
states of America Is the prairie dog.
for years every effort has been put
forth to exterminate them. It seemed
impossible to poison them, for llkd the
English sparrow they evidently could
always detect poisoned food. Traps
were likewise of no avail In removing
them, owing to their fecundity. Agricultural
experiment stations in the
western states have devoted much,
study to the' pfafrie i'a'og'questiop. In an
devise a means to exterminate-them'.
Al last the agricultural experiment
station pf the state of Nebraska
has discovered an effective remedy, an.
jx bulletin recently issued it gives the
following prescription, which it is
claimed will annihilate the prairie dog:
"First dissolve three oun(!es of
strychnine and one-half pound of potassium
cyanide In one quart of boiling"
water. Then add two quarts of molasses
and one teaspoonful of oil cf
anise. Stir. Then pour the solution over
a bushel of wheat, and while mixing it
together sprinkle n four pounds of
finely ground cornmea, which enables
the grains of wheat to carry a larger
amount of, poison. It is a tempting
dish for the prairie dog, but one tea-spoonful
at a. hole ends the career of
the wSole family, and the proportion
'given above" will destroy a town, ot
500 acres, the number of families to the
acre ranging ffom 90 to ISO."
The AalletiU' adds the further
'matloh that this year the poisoning is
helng done over a large range of territory,
and with gratifying results, so
that it is not jmprobaole that in a
short time the last prairie dog will have
The Republican believes that wheat
thus prepared would be very eftectiTe
in destroying the mongoose in Hawaii.
Certainly it is worth, trying on. a
small scale, for the eradication of the
mongoose in Hawaii is of as great importance
to this territory as- is the
eradication of the praine dog in Kebr
raska and neighboring states.

.World Crisis ia China,. 1900-1.
From the publishing house of John
Murphy Company, Baltimore, Md., there
has just been issued a book which, is
of more Than passing interest to every
individual. It is entitled "World Crisis
in ChinX 1900," and is written by Allen
S. Will of the staff of the Baltimore
Sun. The frontispiece is a large map
of China containing all the places"
which are the scenes of the present
conflict. Chinese geography has undergone
many changes in the last few
years, and this map keeps up with
them. The following list of chapters
will give the reader an Idea ot the
ground covered by the book: Causes
of the Crisis of 1900; Story of the Crisis
in Detail; Interests of the United States
in China; The 'Chinese-Japanese War;
The Railway as a Conquerer in Asia;
Four Notable Characters In China
the Empress Dowager, the Emperor, U
Hung Chang and Kang Yu Wei; The
Era of Foreign Interference; History
of China at a Glance; The Great Tas-ping
Rebellion; Chinese Civilization
and Religion, and How China Is Governed.
It tells in a clear and entertaining
manner the actual story of the
present crisis as so far developed, and
also the story of the events that have
led up to It. "What is the news from
China?" is a question everybody is asking,
and nothing has come to our notice
which gives a more graphic review
of events In China and her relations
with the allied powers than this book
bv Mr; Will. It is written in an unbiased
manner, giving only facts regarding
the conduct of every nation toward
China at this mos't critical time.
There is an interesting table in the
book showing the imports and exports,
in which the United States figures creditably.
Another table gives the number
of foreigners and foreign business
firms in China, as registered at the
consulates of the thirty-three treaty
ports.' Today, when the outcome of the
trouble is of vital importance to almost
every nation on the globe, no
more timely book has come to our desk
than this short account of the various
uprisings and wars in the Chinese empire.
Including the present war with the
Reilly pf Artillery Fame.
(From the Iowa State Register.)
Many an. interesting and startling incident
is now being .told of the late
Captain Henry J. Reilly, the
of Company F of the Fifth
United States artillery, an organization
that was known throughout the
country and a good section of tho
wprld.as "Reilly's battery." Reilly had
ideas of -his own about artillery methods,
and. much of his great success in
,thirty-:Six years' duty in this branch
.of the service may becredited thereto.
Every, man in Reilly'g battery, for instance,
wore "his khaki coat, rain or
shine, no matter how hot it might be.
They might leave off their shirts if they
wanted to, and most of them did, but
they bad to. wear the coat Reilly
thought the blue shirts made too good
a target for the enemy,and that he was.
right is proved by the fact that despUe

officers should carry sabres
and revolvers, it being his theory that
the work of the men would be more
efilcient if they depended solely upon
"What it your guns were attaktd
from ambush some day the
horses were, attached and you could
.not use your guns?" was asked him one
.day, and his simple answer was:
"Ouj guns are never where they can
not be- brought into instant action."
. When on the march Jleilly had each
gun.attached to.the ammunition wagon
.by a rope some, twenty -feet long. In a
second's time the rope could be-let oat;
and. the gun was ready for action wiin
