FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1893, THE GAINS OF PROGRESS. With annexation brought to pass the good times which came to the sugar planters a few years ago would come to all Hawaiians. The first result would be a rush of irioneyed investors here from the coast men and their kind who have been following the pioneers from the Alleghanies to the Pacific states, building great cities as they went and turning vacant principalities of land into orchards and gardens. Thousands of these restless and constructive spirits are waiting for American law and power to establish these islands in peace, order and security; and when that is done they are ready to come to Hono lulu and Hawaii and build them up and develop their latent resources at whatever cost of industry and cxpendi ture cf capital. One year after annex ation had been secured, this city would be twice its present size and would hum and buzz, with business; the harbor would be crowded with commerce ; the available wild lands would begin to blossom with the fruits of thrift ; the coast cable project would be taking form ; telegraphic communication be tween the islands would have been established and Oahu would be girdled with tracks of iron. This is no fanciful picture. It is what the progressive men of America have done successively for Chicago and Illinois; Omaha and Nebraska; Kans.is City and its contiguous territory; Seat tie, Tacoma and Washington; Los An geles, San Diego and Fort Worth; and what they will do for any advantageous part of the American Union. Out of it all every man, woman and child in Hawaii would gain in prosperity, com fort and happiness. , What, has royalty to give as an offset? Stagnation in trade; a political weak ness which would make these islands the prey of strong maritime nations; a rotten royalty and a boodling legis lature; oppressive taxes; insecure titles and government by political adven turers. It is a contention between progress and reaction; between right and wrong; between honesty and dishonesty; be tween a great future and a discredited past. WHERE TO ECONOMIZE. Her ex-Majesty's court journal has 1 taken up the cause of the oppressed taxpayers of Hawaii and mindful of their grinding needs declares that the Provisional government is spending too much money. Without stopping to show the Bulle tin that in spite of some financial mis takes the Provisional government is the most economical administrative body the islands have ever had, the Star proposes to join its contemporary in making thrifty demands. For a good start this journal would ask the authorities, not merely to sus pend the royal salaries for a time, but to cut them off altogether. The amount which Mrs. Dominis and Miss Cleghorn are credited with on the civil list is very large. It is not earned, and its " payment would be a tacit recogni tion of royal prerogative which wise statesmanship would hesitate to make, ' Besides, the people cannot afford to hand out hard money to discarded servants who would use it, if they .could, to injure and oppress the donors. The Bulletin, which is distressed about such financial "indiscretions" as the payment of an advertising bill or two as a defrayal of the cost of feeding the troops, should look into this royal outlay and help the Star suppress it. Think of the oppressed taxpayers! NO ALASKAN PRECEDENT. The meo who are fighting annexation refer to Alaska as an example of the kind of representative government which the United States is accustomed to be stow upon annexed territory. This is very disingenuous. The natives of Alaska, who are sodden sav ages, have never asked for the suffrage and would barter it for a new kind of fish-hook if the boon should be confer red upon them. Some whites at Sitka and Juneau have yearned for terri torial rights, but such men arc few, most of them are transient miners and Jishermen, and no good result, in an administrative way, cither for Alaska or the United States, could yet be had by acceding to their wishes. Hawaiians have no cause to study the Alaskan precedent because there is nothing in it that points in this direc tion. Hawaiians being a civilized ai d numerous people would be treated, under annex ition, as were the Creoles of Louisiana, the Mexicans of Califor nia and the Africans of the South, in to mention the redeemed Creeks and Scniinolcs of the Indian Territory, who exercise home rule. There could l e no other outcome and the natives hcie need give themselves no concern m the subject. WILTSE IN WASHINGTON. Cantain G. C, Wiltse, who was w. lieved of the aminiand of the cruis. r Boston in Honolulu harbor by Captain 1). F. Day, has been ordered to Wash ington to report his reasons for his ac tion in landing an armed force in Ha waii. Bulletin. As the candid Vizier remarked to his ugust Master when the latter showed him some spring poetry he had wtitlen, May my soul be the sacrifice, but this is bosh." If Captain Wiltse had been ordert d to Washington to leport his reasons fur landing an armed force in Hawaii, he would probably have replied that he sent his men on shore because he was ordered to do so by his superior officer, the United States minister. Captain Wiltse went to Washington to be consulted with. When there the United States government did not make a fool of itself by asking him silly questions. The public response to the Star's plea for more decisive treatment of the royal cancer was instant and spont.t neous. Scores of representative men, both whites and Hawaiians, have called to express their own satisfaction with it and that of hundreds of others. The government can rest assured that popu lar sentiment will support it in severe measures of repression in cse that treason continues to show its head and hand. There need be no hesitancy from fear of the results. The annex.T tion party is ready to back theconstitut ed authorities in any procedure which may be needed to maintain their dignity and subdue their foes, Minister Stevens will carry with him him, on his return to the United States, the respect and esteem of all men on the Hawaiian Islands, white and native, whose good will is worth having, lie has done his duty with courage and wisdom, and the people of this country will hope that, when annexation comes, if not before, he will return to spend his declining years among those whom he has so s'gnally served and honored. The restoration rumors are subsiding. and there is an aching void in the royalist camp which can only be filled by more canards. Those "four ships of the Australian fleet " can't be used again, and Japanese interference has ceased to be a danger. What next Is it possible that the royalist imagina tion has ceased to move in its myster ous way its wonders to perform ? Homes for Hawaiians! That is one of the doctrines that shine like gems of purest ray in the crown of annexation No papers oppose equal rights for Hawaiians except the Siamese twins of royalty the Bulletin and Holomua It is a principle of common law that anything necessary to save a State from its enemies is absolutely necessary. The velvet glove needs the iron hand to make it tell in a revolution. THE KUOKOA TALKS. How a Native Paper Views the Liberal' Flop. " Let justice be done though the heavens tall." Under the above heading there is an article in the Liberal of Wednesday, which though appearing in Hawaiian, has the ear marks and contains the sentiments of a certain haole who has several times appeared on the scenes in Hawaiian intrigues with oil on his tongue, selfishness in his heart, boodle in his eye and a revolver in his hand. This man has alternately played the foreigners and natives for suckers as the whims of caprice or the designs of an adventurous spirit would dictate this is simply a matter of history. It has been the misfortune of our friend R. W. Wilcox that the shadow of such spirits as the one we now refer to, have darkened the threshold of the door-way which leads to the avenues ot industry, thrift and contentments, and with appeals to his vanity or bland refer ence to success for his ambition have al ways pointed the way that leads to politi cal suicide and personal degradation. We sincerely ndviseour brotherscribe to halt for a moment and comtemplate the probable results of the course which he has allowed to be outlined in Wed nesday issue, as the future policy of the Liberal. Jf the statements made yesterday be true, why was the Liberal silent on these momentous questions during the stirring times of last January? Why did not these self styled patriots buckle on a cartridge belt and shoulder a gun for (heir "principles" as did t'ie better element of the community when the late Queen by her own act, in attempt- ne to promulgate n constitution (which even the Liberal admits was an out rageous proceeding) created the anarchy and uncertainty which was evident on II sides during the 151I1 and 16th days of January. 1 he same cowardly impulse that actuated the ministers to fit e from the ioveriiment building to the station house on the eventful afternoon of anuary 17th, caused the rabble that had collected there in support of the lost cause to weaken in the face of the detei mined stand taken by the or ganizes uf the Provisional Government lid their supporttis, and to capitulate to tin- Provisional Guvernmcnt. Had the auiibutes of royalty and patriotism found an abiding place in the heaits of any tf these cowaids they had arms nd ammunition enough to have wiped out tno drei hundred that were pitted against them. Let us hear no more arguu.ent about "intervention" and supciiur forces" of the Unikd States in the face of the facts above enumer ated. Successful revolution is not treason and to compare the status of those con cerned in the fiasco of 1880 and the last embryo attempt to form a republic by Ashford-WUcox & Co., to the (ires ent government simply demonstrates the dense ignorance of the person writ ing such trash. he Provisional Government is the only recognized government of these Islands to-day, and tt is as much trea son now for royalist to plot for a mon archy and others for an independent republic, as it was a year ago for Wilcox and his associates to plot for a republic while living under the monarchy. 1 he Provisional Government has but one purpose the economical conduct of the affairs of this country until such time as our union with the United States can be effected that is the sole power and purpose under the Procla m.ition published on January 17th. Any statements to the contrary by writers in the newspapers or others, are lies made out of whole cloth and unwarranted by the logic of events. In conclusion we wish once more to urge en our readers the desirability of their candid consideration of the great step that we feel certain will be taken 111 the near future, and to prepare them selvts by a close examination into the merits of free constitutional government under the American flag as compared with the past government of these islands so as to intelligently accept and sacredly guard the great privileges and immunities which we are sure to enjoy as a part of the greatest Republic the world has yet seen.

Are we to be, or not to be,,. a part of the Great Republic, seems to be the burning ques tion of the day, and one we had rather leave to wiser heads than ours to solve; and while great statesmen are wrestling with this' momentous question, we want to have a little "poiv wo7i " with you on some other subjects, that concern you as well as ourselves. Mas it not occurred to you that' you've been wearing that old hat long enough ! In these progressive times if you intend to be "in it," you've got to keep pace with fashion. No matter how otherwise well dressed you may be, unless your hat is the correct thing you bear a shabby appearance. We have already laid in a stock of the Latest Hats of the coming Spring and Summer styles, in hard felts, soft felts tnd straws, and including a line of the celebrated "Fidora" Hats, al present all the rage in the United States. There is therefore, no necessity for you to hang on any longer to that old Tile that bears such a strong resemblance to the hat " your father wore." Believing that business will be better in the near future, we have not hesitated to keep our stock full in all lines. Take collars for instance : We have almost everything you could wish for. If you wear a stand ing collar, just come in and take a look at our " Narenta" or "Ardonia ;" or if you prefer a turn down collar, trv the , j "Winnipeg" or "Goswell;" we have have lots of others, 'and can't fail to suit you. Cuffs in abundance, links or otherwise. Neckwear in profusion, scarfs Windsors 4-in -hands, and a special lot of ' Boys' Bows;" suspenders in great variety, leather and woven ends, good strong, serviceable goods. We might go on indefinitely, but space is valuable, and to enumerate everything we carry would fill a pretty fair sized Book. If there is anything you want in the menls line, just drop in and see us, and if we can't suit you, we don't, be-1 lieve any one can. If you should want a pair of nice shoes, let us try a hand at 1 fitting you. Did it ever occur to you How much n man is iiU- his shoes; Eor instance, both a may lose. Uoth have been tanneil; lHh are made tight by Cobb'i rs; Holh get left and right; Both need a mate to be c m,.lcte; And both are made to g u feet. They both need hewing; oft are sold, And both in tin will turn to mould. With shoe;, ih-' 1 ;: first; with men The first shall be the last; andwhen The shoes wear out, they're mended new; When men wear out, they're men dead too. . They both are trod upon, and both Will tread on others nothing loth. Both have their ties, and both incline When polished, in the world to shine; And both peg out Now would you choose To be a man, or be his shoes, 1 ' M. McINERNY. .A 'A S1!
