1 Wanted, a drug slo'c'. There is not a batter opening any
where for a retail drug store limn in Wailuku. We want one1 with
an iee cream, soda and stationery attachment. Ve want oi'.r with
a green light in one window4 and a l'ed light in the otlier.
If a skillful druggist who is a graduate of .some reputable school
of phurniaey will come hWe and bring; a., fresh, lot of ft ist class
drugs and medicines, ar'd in addition to .his will carry a stock of
fancy articles, such as are usually handled by druggists, including;
the inevitable soda fount lin. or at lenst a nlillc-shakc outfit, he will
make money. Wo have two physician's in Wailuku. Vitb a third
pvomiso.l, and these gentlemen, to s';y nothing of physicians iu the
neighboring villages, would orily. be toe glad tei patronize a drug
gist mi whom they could rely. Tliere is also a Kijayy deniaujl for
patent me.licines which v. ou'etprove an important foaluu'c ir the
business. It would be well for some one of the Honolulu' vvho'cs'alo
drug houses to make a note of this,"

The KfV. Charles M: iicklon's
newsjinper. edited aw Cliiant would
eilit it in the estiintUloil ii'f tlie rev
erend gentleman, h hei-li. The now
jourimlislie. Moses is iif';0'i"g tlie test
fairly and squarely: , 2?o challenge
has been thrown pi li'un that he has
not accepted. His deiuii'te'-e from
the accepted n clliods and rules of
jounlalisiii are ruilical. News is
buried in the background; special ar
ticles intended to benefit mankind,
Ixidy and soul, occupy the places of
honor1 on the front page under
"ser.ro" heads. The first article 'on
the Hi st page is a prayer, written
for the. occasion by' Bishop Vincent.
The first bond on the first page deals
with the famine in Tnd'.A, and sand
wiched in between the head and what
Mr. Sheldon regards as the news is
an editorial appeal for aid. The
head Is as follows:
''Starving India. Fifty Million
People Affected by the Faniin'e.
Conditions Growing AVorse Instead
of Hotter. The Urgent Need of Aid
From Christian America."
The second head on tlie first page
deals with the department that in
worldly newspapers would called
'Transvaal war." Mr. Sheldon's
method of handling the South Afri
can conflict is told hi this head, which
'The War Srarit A Phy.-ician
Diagnoses It as Jtilitarv Fever A
Disease Epidemic In All Latitudes
Its Causes, Dangers and Cures."
The next place of honor, the third
column, is a "story" which tells how
prohibition has succeeded in Kansas.
The fourth, head on the first page
exploits an article which Jias no ap
parent news interest, but , the Itev.
Mr J Sheldon, is not wedded to news
as tlie world has learned to under
stand it. The head follows:
'"Colorado's Burden -Consumptives
Come to It From All the States' A
Call Upon the Nation's' Philanthropy
to Help Provide for , Them."
, Buried on the first page is a
story" which luiks the liquor evil
with the industrial problem, the
head being:
The Cry for Work-The Answer
the Sahxm Sluices to It -Fearful
Waste Caused by the Liquor Industry
It Makes i Millions Idle." .
Old newsiianer nien will coiisider

The Capital begins with a subscrip
tion list of 380,0(1(1 and street sales
m the larger cities are expected to
bring the total to oilil.oiMt. jjh ex

March f-. The clause ratifying
and Continuing the titles to lands
take n up bet ween August 12,
and Sept. It. lSil'!, remains in the
bill with a slight alteration, but il
hud a very narrow escape. Senator
Itan ",'rough. of North Dakota, had
niovl d to strike it out. and after a
slight show of opposition by Senator
Culioni this was done by ''unanimous
consent." not a vote being cast for
or against it.- A few miiiuteu later
Senator Spooncr'th'sired to offer an
amendment to this clause, when he
was reminded tint the whole thing
hud just been stricken out.
"You want it put back?" asked
Senator Piatt.
"Do not let it go out," replied Mr.
Spoolier. as if it had been a eat they
were chasing around the Senate
Senator Cullcm then poured o'l on
the If'Wublod waters by saying: ''We
will put it hack, then."
Thl President pro teiiiplore (Sen
tor Frye): '"That amendment just
went out By unanimous eonserit."
Senator Cullom: ''I hope it will
go bi'ck by unanimous consent."
The President pro tempore: "Shall
it go back by uuuuiimtus consent?
The' Chair hears no objection, and it
is hack."
So. after plaA ing f .olball with the
lucstion of our lands and kicking it
t about from one end of the Senate
to the other, it was lost sight of in
the diversion of another amendment,
and so it remains in the bill, slightly
A great danger threatened the
bill a few moments before its final
passage, when Senator Piatt; of Con
necticut, offered an amendment pro
viding that nothing In the bill should
be understood to imply or promise
that Hawaii would ever become a
Slate of the Union, or attached to
any State. Of course no congress
an bind the act ion of a future con
gress, but the meaning of tins amend
ment was that Hawaii should forever
remain a colony of the United States,
somewhaf analogous1 to the Indian
Territory or Alaska. Fortunately,
Senate),!' Morgan, who has so long
hanipioned the cause of Hawaii, was
alert, and made the point of order

which have been in possession of the
royal families of p:is't dee mles, some
times ago took the panelled doors of
a former royal carriage belonging
to Kalakaiui. The carriage is one
which lias been . lying in a public
street near the lumber yard district,
exposed to all kinds of weather, and
shows the dilapidating effects of its
outdoor existence. The present own

(uests. ino panels were decorated
with the royal coat of arias, and al
though soniewhat dim in color, still
showed much eif the brilliance of its
heyday glory. The possession of
these panels would have warmed the;
cockles of an . antiquarian's heart
but there is little reason to believe
that they were removed by any lover
of suc h relics. They were probably
unhinged and spirited away by an
