of tlx Western States and that t' c
island commerce would, in every way,
be a benefit to the United Sttcs.
At the conclusion of Mr. Thurston's
lecture, President Peck proposed a
vole of thanks to Mr. Thurston and
Mr. Irwin for the splendid cntcitain
nienl furnished during the evenirg.
The vote was passed with hearty as
sent. Hauling Down the American Flag.
The American flag hauled down !
Such is the news from Hawaii news
in some rcspi cts the most humiliating
and astonishing that this country has
received since the flag was hauled down
at Fort Sumter. For the first time in
the history of the Republic the symbol
of Atnetican authority has been with
drawn from territory which had been
formally declared under American pro
tection. For the first time in Amer
ican history American prestige has been
deliberately degraded by an American
President. It is no wonder that some
of the gallant officers of the Mohican
said, as they turned away from the
scene, that they felt as if they "had no
right to witness the act." livery Amer
ican worthy of the name must feel a
personal sense of shnme and indigun
tion at such a cowardly and treacher
ous retreat from a p sition assumed
with the consent and by the invitation
of the Hawaiians themselves, and recog
nized by the express or tacit approval
of civilized mankind.
The Cleveland government will here
after be known as the Administration
which hauled down the American flag.
By that term it will go down to history;
by that designatijn it will be stigma
tized in the mind and memory of every
true American. The Hawaiian Isl
ands are American territory by every
claim of justice, of vested interest and
of world wide recognition. The Amer
icans gave Hawaii civili. ition and res
cued the people from donrad.ttg bar
barism. Americans c-ittrul the prup
erty interest of the islands, and tin-
best people of the islands are Americans
born in Hawaii.' the island:, are nec
essary to the United States, fur unper
ative reasons apparent to any one who
has studied the naval and commercial
interests of the country. The hoisting
of the American flag in Hawaii was
dictated alike by patriotism, by nru
deuce and by intellinent foresight. It
was approved by the American people,
with the exception of that element
whose opinions are controlled by Brit
ish affiliations and win se aim is tc
please the public opinion of London.
The wrong and shame of hauling
down the American (l,g at Hawaii
should be ledressed. Public opinion
should m ike itself heard, even in the
White House, and the obstinate and
jealous politician who apparently imag
ines that he can play fast and loose
with the honor and the interest of the
nation should be made to feel the force
of that opinion. When President Mar
rison framed the annex uion treaty with
Hawaii, he consulted not his own
judgment only, but the virtually unan
imnus wishes of the American people,
In reversing the course of the previous
Administration Cleveland has the peo
ple of the United States, who amply
indorsed that course, to reckon with.
Apart from the blot on the natinnal
honor of hauling dowi the American
flag on territory which justly belongs
to the United States, there is another
and deplorable aspect to this despica
ble act. It will and perhaps it has al
ready been considered an invitation to
insurrection and massacre. The Ha
waiian Islands have among their popu
lation many thousands of ignorant and
barbarous Asiatics with evil passions
. that readily find expression in outrage
and violence. 1 he flag of the United
States has been a warning that a power
capable of suppressing disorder and of
inflicting condign punishment on law
breakers, was present to protect the
substantial and intelligent portion of
the residents. All that is now chang
ed. The flag that guaranteed peace
and security no longer floats in Hono
lulu. The vessels which brought news
of the lowering of the flag also brought
news of the apprehensions which that
--incident had naturally excited, and of
the resolution of the men of American
blood and descent not to surrender, ex
cept to irresistible force, the free gov
ernment which has been organized in
place of that royalty which had proved
itself as worthless as it was mischievous.
It goes without saying that men of the
American race will defend their rights.
whatever the odds against them, and
however basely abandoned they may be
by that authority which should have
felt it a duty to extend over Americans
everywhere the shield of the power of
the Republic. If bloodshed and mas
sacre and European interference are the
results of hauling down the American
flag in Hawaii, the people of the unit
ed States will understand where the res
ponsibility rests. A'f'u' York Press.

Are we to be, or not to be,
i 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 "poo-
iVoxv " with you on some other
subjects, that concern you as
well as ourselves.
Has 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 pot to keep
pace with fashion. No matter
how otherwise well dressed
you may be, unless your hat is
the correct thing vou bear a
We have already laid in a
stock of the Latest Mats of the
coining Spring and Summer
styles, in hard felts, soft felts
and straw's, and including a line
of the celebrated " Fidora"
Hats, at 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."
Believinrr 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. I f yon 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, try the
"Winnipeg" or "Goswell;" we
have have lots of others, and
can't fail to suit yon. 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 men's line,
just drop in and see us, and if
we ain't suit you, we don't, be
lieve any one can.
If you should want a pair of
nice shoes, let us try a hand at
fitting you. Did it ever occur
How much a man is like his shoes;
For instance, both a soui may lose.
Doth have been tanned; Roth are made
tight by Cobblers;
Iioth get left and right;
Hi'th need a mate to be complete;
And both arc made to go on feet.
They both need healing; oft arc sold,
And both in time will turn to mould.
With shoes the last is first; with men
The first shall be the last; and when
The shoes wear out, they're mended
When men wear out, they'ie men dead
They both are tiod upi-n, and both
Will tread on others nothing loth.
Roth have their ties, and both incline
When polished, in the world to shine;
And both peg out. Now would you
