TO KEEP AT IT.
Ouj reason lor continual advertising
is "to be there" when
the "cultivated and convinced" .
buyer gets ready
to do business with you. Some-tidied,
but not always, buyers
"crtp" or "mark" ads for ruturo
reference. But usually they say,
"Well, next month I'll get that-'
Now, next month, if your ad isn't
there to remind them, they are
likely to forget that you ever existed,
and you then lose the good
effects of your previous advertising.
Naturally, when a buyer
wants an .article badly and has
the price, he "buys on the spot."
But buying on the spot is more
often the exception than the rule.

FINE BUSINESS SHOWING.
As everyone knows, The Republican
was started on June 14, and is therefore
Just three and one-half months old today.
A look at the advertising columns
of today's paper will tell more
eloquently than words how well the
paper is succeeding and how it is meeting
Uio approval of the people.
The linotype machine ordered :n

Sunday Republican will consist of not
less than ten or twelve pages, so that

in today's paper is limited can to
assured that hereafter they will get
a Sunday Republican that will be fai
ahead of any pjper ever heretofore lb-
sued in the Hawaiian Islands.

The Lounger i
People of Honolulu seem to nave
some peculiar ideas ot tie province ci
a newspaper and tee duties of
a reporter. My attention has been
uxietttd to mis on ivnJ
recently, notably in
with some uanqutu. tfce people
s charge ol the naaqueti thevr favors
at Use reportera as though they
animals vrho were tolerated Uirouga
tear or somtthmg else, l have had a
gooc deal of experience with lawyers,
ieporters, actors and otaer proietsionat
men and I maintain that reporters,
man tor man, are as honorable and
courteous a set of men as xollo' any
profession In the land. Tney are men
uf education nd refinement and men
of a road experience in anatrs. 1 am
told that one editor in Honolulu informed
his reporters not long since
that hereafter when any one of them
attended a banquet he chouid demand
courteous treatment and a seat at tit
table where he could attend to his duties
properly or to turn and walk out.
Of course there are boors in the
newspaper profession u well as in all
others and these men oftimes cause
people in other walks of life to gain bad
impressions of reporters as a whole.
The actions of one of this rude class,
I which, thank heaven, are few, was
caileu u my attention a few niguts
ago. A man wno is not always
grata where his duties take him,
but who Is tolerated because of his position
on a newspaper walked into a
gentleman's ofilce in quest of news,
just as he stepped up to the desk the
man he was addressing was in the act
of closing a drawer in which was a
box of cigars. Mr. Fresh Reporter at
once reached quickly into the drawer
and picked out u cigar, ev Idently thinking
his rude act was a piece of smart
business. The gentleman he was addressing
would have been justihed m
kicking that reporter out of his office.
But notwithstanding the faults of thu
very few of this character that unfortunately
get into the business, that u
no excuse for the rude treatment of all
reporters so often extended conscientious
workmen by people who stem to
think a reporter is not deserving of
1 was much interested in the article
in The Republican a few days ago on
the English language. It reminded me
of a famous editorial by that great msn
Charles A. Dana live years ago. Besides
his talent as an editor, being the
dean of the profession, as J. B. Mc-Cullagh
of the Globe-Democrat called
him, Mr. Dana was a very learned linguist,
reading and speaking nearly
every language of Europe. Speaking
of the use of the German language in
tbe United States, Dana closed with
this tribute to the English tongue:
"There is nowhere in the world a more
lobust, forcible or comprehensive language
than English. It is the language
spoken by the largest number of civilized
people. It is the language of thoce
nations where free institutions nourish.
It is tho language of progress, the
language of liberty, the language of
law and order, the language of commerce,
of invention, of newspapers;
the language of the future, superseding
other languages in all continents out
Europe. It is the official language of
the United States and of every public
department of the government. We
quote from an American poet:
" 'I like tho Anglo-Saxon speech
With its direct revealings;
It takes a hold and seems to reach
Away down to your feelings.' "
With the native leaders political differences
seem to "cut no ice" when it
comes to their social relations. One
evening just before Prince David's departure
for Hawaii he gave a very
pleasant dinner at Lycurgus Union
Grill, at which Sam Parker and Charles
B. Wilson were guests, as were also
Mr. Loebenstein and Mr. Walker of
Hilo, and others. The republican lion
laid down with the democratic lamb,
politics were eschewed and small talk
only was indulged In between the popping
of the corks.
Beautiful, clever Belle Archer, the
opera boufe singer and capable all
'round actress is dead. She died of a
blood clot on the brain in the Emergency
hospital at Warren, Pa. Mrs.
Archer made her first hit as Hebe in
John T. Ford's original production of
"Pinafore," a character for which nature
had cast her. She was an exceedingly
beautiful girl and at the time
caused a furore that ever after stood
her in stead in her professional career.
She was, however, more than a staj,e
beauty. She was a sweet voiced singer
and a clever and conscientious actress,
who achieved success by her art and
never resorted to advertising her personal
charms. Her maiden name was
Belle Mingle and she was born at
Easton, Pa., where her father was
prominently connected with the Western
Union Telegraph company anil
largely identified in business. Belle
made her debut under John T. Ford at
Baltimore before she was 16 years of
age. She was about 3S years ot age at
the time of her death, an event that
will hring sorrow to thousands upon
thousands of devoted friends in this
country and In Europe. Of late years
Mrs. Archer had made her home in
When T. McCants Stewart gets a
phrase like "legally Involved" he can
roll It out more rolllngly and ring- the
changes on it oftener than some
of Hawaii can change their
political creeds to keep la line with
the kaleidoscopic changes in the body
politic of these islands.
Speaking about politics reminds me
that a good story has been allowed to
go to waste when the "family
pulled down A. V. Gear ia tie
legislative convention for the Foarta
district. Talk about bolting aad per

The morning conferences of the sanitary
inspectors have become very
popular and are really proving of considerable
benefit. As soon as Dr. Pratt
can male up his staff of lecturers the
weekly lectures to the force will be inaugurated-
Some one has maliciously
suggested that the course of lectures
be extended and daily clinics be introduced,
so that the board ot health
might run its own school of medicine
when the new dispensary building is
finished. Good idea!
The authorities should keep, their
eyes on sailing vessels, oOtne of which
are smuggling Belgian hares into Qahn.
I am reliably inforn.eu that as, many
as twenty-live pairs axe now In thia
city and others are being bsoutat in

importations and are mighiy
liable to become a pest.
Registrar of Voters Wray Taylor has
troubles of his own, but his chief
now is of other men's making. It
devolves upon the registrar to send
out ballot boxes and when the elections
are o er the boxes are returned to nun
Each box is provided with a Yale lock
and only one key. It is this key that
gives Mr. Taylor hemorrhages. The
key is cent to the election board under
separate cover. That's all right, but it
is tne manner in which the keys are returned
to him that is making him gray
and bald-headed. The election officers
are usually so careful about them that,
after the ballots are all in and the
boxes locked and ready for shipment,
they throw the keys through the slot
into the box. As there are no duplicate
keys, the only way the registrar
can open such boxes is with an ax.
This is annoying to the legistrar and
costly to the territory. Will the election
officers kindly take this matter to
heart and return those keys unaer
separate cover to Mr. Taylor?
The toping on the rounded corner of
the capitol grounds wall at Richards
street has been put on and I am sorry
to see that preparations are under way
to replace that beastly iron fence. I
had hoped that the fence and iron gates
at the entrances would all b& removed, -now
that the monarchy has passed
away and the grounds no longur belong
to rulers, but to the people. It is ai
absurdity to close these grounds In the
evening, just when the people would
most enjoy them. The building is
locked, of course, but the grounds
should never be closefl any more than
are any of the other parks. The territorial
government is no longer a
family arrangement and the men in
office not rulers, but servants, of the
people. Then why hedge the capitol
about with iron fences and lock out
of their grounds the people with big
iron gates? Visitors from the mainland
must think that the territory is
preserving something precious in tho
old palace. Tear down the fences and
the gates and sell them for junk.
Some better arrangement ought to be
made to care for the flower girls that
now make some sections of the streets
of Honolulu so distinctive. In sunshine
and in rain their lot is not what it
ought to be and the vendors of Hawaii's
beautiful flowers are compelled
to move from side to side of streets to
find comfort. Who wouldn't miss the
flower girls if they should stop selling
flowers? It would be in the nature of
a public calamity. What would we do
on steamer days; whence would come
the leis? Truly, the flower girls of Honolulu
are more than a unique feature
of our cosmopolitan life. They ore an
absolute necessity. What rich man
will immortalize himself by establish
ing a flower market?
