HONOLULU, May 24— Interest in the
price of meat has been aroused /in .the
Territory of Hawaii, owing to the striking
advance recently made on- the mainland.
For many, years it has been customary
for Honolulu to obtain a large part of its
meat | supply from j the Pacific Coast, as
meny; as; 300, carcasses of beef and 1000 of
sheep coming; down In the refrigerating
chambers • of each regular steamer. At
the present time harmy any. meat Is ob
tained from the mainland. ' \
Supplies on , these islands have been
gradually increasing and there is now sut
rtcient stock on the, hoof in sight to feed
the total population' for more than four
months to come.'.* It is hoped that the sup
ply has not ceased, but that Hawaii has
at last I become independent . of the main
land for its- prtneipar staple' food.
. Comparing the .wholesale and retail
prices. of meat this year in Honolulu with
u year ago, there has. been an advance of
a cent: and a half per pound in the whole
sale price for dressed Deef; of half a cent
a . pound, for dressed mutton and of one
cent. -a pound for veal. Retail prices show
an, advance of two cents for sirloin
steaks, of five cents: for porterhouse and
of; two; and a half cents, tor round steak.
Mutton at retail is practically unchanged
and the same may be said of veal, while
perk has advanced two cents a pound at
retail.,,:. - . ,,-•....¦ • •"-.:
'A familiar figure In Rotten row, the old

Acting Governor Cooper . has received

appearance was most mysterious. He

Ohio .for the Philippines, and it was
thought that he had gone on her, but it

BRUSSELS. May 3O.-It Is said here
that the Boer delegates in Europe now
admit that peace in South Africa jhas
been secured and that the settlement be*
tween the Boers and Great Britain will
'be signed in the names of the former
citizens of the two South African
republics who are now in Europe, includ
ing: Kruger*. thus preventing the irrecon

PILrrERMARITZBURG, Natal, May 30.
Addressing a crowd at Greytown to-day,
the Governor-of Natal. Colonel Sir Henry
tid-R-ard McCailum, said the 2W Boer dele
gat* s at Vereeniging appeared to be hav
ing a. good time at the British expense.
They .were being treated, the Governor

tainable, hence arose the delay in an
nouncing a decision.
LONDON, May 20.— In connection with
the resignation of Dr. J. \V. Smart, Com
missioner of Public Works, from the
Cape Colony Cabinet, which was an
nounced from Cape Town yesterday, an
interesting sidelight of the difficulties
likely 10 confront the British administra
tors of South Africa after the conclusion
of peace is furnished by an article which
will be published in to-morrow's Empire
Review, the editor of which claims to
have exceptional sources of information.
The wilier of the article points out that
Cape Coicny will present a most serious
problem after the close of hostilities. The
province, which is nominally self-govern
ing, is now deprived of a constitution, is
urder military law and is honeycombed
with disloyalty from end to end. The au
thor of the article declares further that
if an attempt is made to restore the con
stitution the Afrlkanderbund will surely
dominate the political situation and that
campaign speeches will fan the existing
race hatred to a worse state than before
or during the war. The only safety for
the whole of South Africa, according to
the Review, lies in smothering the last
spark of sedition and in transforming the
Cap .t l Pw a crown colony and governing it
on tna. basis for several years to come.
Speaking at Leeds to-night Lord Rose
bei-y advised the leaders of the Liberal
pcrty j to postpone the announcement of
the programmes until there was some Im
meoiate prospect of getting them carried
out. Lord Rosebery said the first and
greatest question before the public was
p?ace. which he believed would be an
nounced in a few days. He said he hoped
aiat all might be able 1 to support the
Government's policy of pacification, but
warned his hearers that the Ministry was
not concluding peace with a crushed foe.
to v. horn no further attention need be
paid. The speaker said he hoped the
Oovernment would be wise enough to
adopt a generous policy and convert brave
foes into brave friends. This certainly
could not be done, said Lord Rosebery. on
the lines heretofore sketched by Lord
Salisbury, th" Premier, who said: "A
resolute Government might be required
Referring to the present financial policy
of the Government. Lord Rosebery said
he thought the tax, on corn was a prelude
to a sort of zollverein throughout the em
pire. He said he could not summarilv dis
miss any proposal for the closer union of
the British empire, but the advantage
must be <Jemcnstrably great to justify
such a departure as a zollverein would
necessitate, and that this departure would
moan giving up the control of Great
Britain's financial system to the British
colonies. . .
Thf> -Government has not yet received
the decision from the Boer conference at
Vereeniglng, Transvaal, which was ex
pected to-day and which was to enable
Balfortr. the Government leader, to make
his statement concerning peace next Mon
day A dispatch received from Pretoria
says the British columns in South Africa,
especially the cavalry, have been greatly
benefited by their long rest. Lord Kitch
ener will again take the field if there is
any delay in the acceptance of Great
Britain's terms by the Boers. In the
meantime preparations are being made
for the repatriation of the Boers on the
termination of hostilities.

of all women that the great claims that Mrs. Pinkham makes for her medicine .
must be based upon positive evidence. • . ' - ,- % j
Is it reasonable, think you, that we could hire such women as Miss How-
ard to speak well of JLydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound just
, for commercial reasons ? Impossible ! and it is an insult both to her and to
Mrs. Pinkham to suggest such an idea ; therefore, let every, woman read this
letter and believe, for it is as genuine in every particular as the eyes with
which you read these words* * C
Mrs. Pinkham invites all women who are ill to write her for
advice. Address Lynn, Mass., giving full particulars.
MISS ¦ LAURA HOTV^ARD. r^.
"Dear Mrs. Pinkiiam : ; — I can thank you for perfect health to-day,
and gladly do I acknowledge it. life looked so dark to meayearor
two ago. I had constant pains, my limbs swelled, I had dizzy spells, and
never knew one day how I would feel the next. I^was nervous and had
no appetite, neither could I sleep soundly nigh*ts. Eight hottles of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, used in conjunction with
your Sanative Wash, did more for me than all the medicines and the
skill of the doctors. For eight months I have enjoyed perfect health.
I verily believe that most of the doctors are guessing and experimenting
when they try to cure a woman with an assortment of complications,
such as mine ; but you did not guess when you mixed your Compound ;
you evidently know whatyou are giving suffering women and are sure, of
what it will do. How i. wish all suffering women could only know of your \
remedy; there would, be less suffering and. many thousands more happy
and healthy women in America." — ItAUBA Howard, 113 Kewberry Ave-
Chieago, HL ': : h^ v : '. 4 -\ : -
O, my sisters, I do pray you to profit by Miss Howard's experi-
ences ; i ust as surely as she was cured of the troubles enumerated
in her letter, just so surely will Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound cure every woman in the land who suffers from womb
troubles, inflammation of the ovaries, kidne y troubles, nervous
excitability, and nervous prostration ; remember that it is Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound that is curing -women, and
don't allow any druggist to sell you anything else in its place.
