It is not often that the Daily Hono
lulu Press " blows its own trumpet,"
but j we feci a pardonable pride in calling
attention to the "Grand Offer "
made by us, in another column of this
, isue. ThU is-an enterprise which, we
believe; is the first of its kind that has
ctcr been attempted in this Kingdom,
and, ,wte trust, will receive the patrpu

One of the most important works
ever issued in the Hawaiian Islands is
the "Hawaiian Almanac and .Annual."
Perhaps no single .publication has
furnished as much information to the
outside, world concerning the internal
working and statistical development of
the Kingdom. With tHc present issue
for the year 1886, the' Annual has
reached its twelfth year of existence.
During the period over which its pu
Tic'alion has extended, it has secured a
world-wide circulation and reputation,
and lias gained the enviable position
of being acknowledged, .and quoted
an an authority by commercial, political
.and literary men and authors in
every portion of the English speaking
world. In looking over the complete
issue of twelve numbers it is clear to
be) seen jliat the publisher and
gradually woiked out a plan
which has developed with the, growth
of the Kingdom, and has at last come
to includt all that is of importance for
ready reTcre both at home and
abroad, In fau di? publisher has been
enough to lay out a plan
which has .not only been' exhaustive
but which is now being used as the
plan' and similar
The Annual for 18S6, which is now
before us, we consider ttic best evei
issued. . Twelve years of unceasing
application, correction . nnd addition
have not' failed to approach statistic.il
perfection and general convenience,
The present number consists of 82
,octavo pages of reading matter and 45
pages of advertisement?, The firs'
part ol the Annual, its usual, contains
the calendar, domestic and geographical
statistics, nnd comparative tables gi
Ilawsiian commerce, Postal statistics,

Juilf a doicn pages. Au interesting
list of "Fruits and their Seasons in the
Hawaiian Islands" appears for the first
time. One of the most exhaustive
articles in the Annual is entitled
J'Musitrin Hawaii Nel," written by Mr.
A. Marques, nnd must be carefully
read to be fully appreciated. A comprehensive
"Retrospect of (he Year
1885" contains, perhaps, the most
general information in a small space
of any article in the Annual. The
tables which show the Internal
taxes for the biennial periods including
.1862 and 1884 and the annual Internal
taxes from the year 1876, give
some very interesting facts. For instance,
the annual tax per capita for
thq year 1876 was $2(84 and has
gradually increased until it reaches
$5.07 per capita in 1884. The grca.t
Hawaiian Colonization, Scheme receives
ample attention, and is fully set
fori.h in six interesting page. The Annual
closes with a full and completely
revised register and directory of the
Hawaiian Islands' fdr the year 1886,
We have by no means mentioned all
that Ijc. Annual contains, and have
only touched 'upon some of the main
points. All of the tables, and statistics
haVe been carcfullv revised and brought
uown 10 me present time. An exam
ination of the Annual will reveal the
fact that it is a work containing matter
for daily reference which cannot be
found elsewhere without expending
both time and money. The great success-
which has yearly attended and in
creased with the publication of the
Annual, has been built by years of ex
perience and careful work which do
not admit of immediate competition.

The most persistantly notable thing
during the month has been the rain
not the gentle rain, nor ambrosial
showers, to fill the .dells aqd woodland
bowers with graceful ferns and spring
ing flowers, but a genuine old-fashioned
down-pour, doing the work in a steady
.ill-day-and-night style, which is more
suggestive of growing crops, smiling
Grangers and' radiant merchants, than
ot (ems and tlowers, tliough the grass
is springing up in every direction, and
hill and dale are gaining new beauty

earnest we have had but few really
pleasant days, and San Francisco has
presented the appearance of a great
carnival of umbrellas and balloon-like
rubber gossamers. Could one of our
tncestors have looked in upon us, from

have thought we were all crazy, or that

carrying umbrellas or scudding along
before the wind in puffed-out rubber
cloaks, like so many animated bulloons.

The usual tide of fall weddings has
set in, and there have been a number
among people in prominent society. As
the reports of such affairs always read
much the same, I will spare you. The
bride, however, is always charmine.

is generally the same crowd of friends

bride cues away, as usual, amid a
shower of rice and shoes. It is worthy
of remark that, notwithstanding the
craze for novelty amonc the wealthy
ind fashionable, the events of society
are generally the counterpart one of
another. The weddings in particular
are often more monotonous than the
less nortentious and oftentimes more
unique than in the lower walks of life.
Having a "numerous array" ot ministers
among my ancestors and immediate
relatives and friends-, I speak from a
varied experience, dating irom my
earliest recollection. In every sphere
of life the union of those capable of
high and earnest purpose, whose every

founded on self-respect.
DEATH (jY shakon.
Since the lastletter I wrote, ex-Senator

that he has left several large bequests

vice to commerce here. As to his
private life, that basalrcadybecn dragged
into public view without reference to
public good. It will be a good thing
when the moral sentiments of the
people shall become high enough toi
frown down all sensational reports of
crime by the press. I he saddest thing
about Mr. Sharon's life, in view of the
possibilities nfforded by his great
wealth, is the thought of what
might, have been; the contemplation of
all he might have accomplished for
othe'rs as well as himself. I do not
mean by this " only the good that may
be done with n)oncy in relieving, the
actual wants of the suffering, for there
are even ways of doing more lasting and
permanent good than by present
charity, great as it is.
SENATOR STANFORD'S BEQUESTS.
Wc have more reason for pride in
the bequests of Governor and Mrs.
Stanford, to our State and city, than if
every dollar ol their wealth was given
to feed the poor in our day. It will
lay the foundation of a present and
future feeding of the poor morally, intellectually
and physically also for by
its influence hundreds of intelligent,
earnest bread-winners will go forth to
build up, to bless nnd save. I presume
you have had before this the details
of Governor Stanford's generous bequests
and the outlines of the preparatory
work for the founding of an cdu
cational institution which, wc all hope,
will wield a mighty influence for good
upon the coming and future generations,
beyond even the brightest antici
pations of the donors. It will then bt,
indeed, a more lasting tribute to the
memory of their departed boy than
either human words or wealth can
raise, since its working influence will
be as much mprc than the money
which laid its foundation, as "the body
is than raiment" or "the soul than the

ignorance, brutality and a total dis

would like better than to see the Chi

being n voter, I am free to confess I
would like to see the Class of ignorant,
immoral voters who try to uphold
whiskey and do away- with our Sunday
law, and raise rows in defiance
of law, go with them; I would like also
to see the politicians, who truckle to this
class for the sake of votes, and talk
about their love for the working class,
even while underhandedly selling time
and influence for money, banished at
the same time forever from our shores.
In short, I would like to see America
ruled by sincere, law-abiding Amen

manual labor should have special con
sideration or rights, over any other kind
of labor. It will be a sad day for us
when we allow scheming politicians
and .1 crowd of ignorant foreigners, who
cannot even appreciate our institutions,
to frame laws to govern our children.
If such a state of things transpires,
those Americans who have loved
party more than their country will
have themselves to blame.
The foreign dispatches of to-day speak
of the serious illness of King Alfonso
of Spain, and also of the gradual de
feat of the Servian army. As to the
hnal results of this war, who can say ?

With which hope I will say for the

from Monterey, Mex., gives the latest
news of the Mexican revolution : The

a paper in this city, in which
General Lozaro Garcia Agala, a distinguished
lawyer, is announced as. its
legal President, and General Prado
Martinez as Vice-President. These
eminent members, under the cover of
legal proceedings, bitterly oppose the

Rodriguez, whose followers now number
600 men, unquestionably co-operating
with them, has resorted to sterner
revolutionary measures, and is in arms,

capital, where he is adding hourly to

preparations are being made to give
