According to C. K. Smith, who returned by the Seandia this morn ng, the. young fellows have shown -their pluck, procd that they have the -rifjlct kind of constitutions and have "behaved themselves like gentlemen. Cood boys. The Hongkong papers by the City of Peking told of the preparation for war in Asiatic waters, the Coptic brought letters from Africa . which peak of preparatons made at the Cape of Good Hope. War between France I ml Great Ilritniu was nearer than a jjrent many people thought. Had it broken out it would have raged in many different parts of the world. The Dreyfus ease still occupies France and the reputations of the leading French military men nre irre trievably smirched. Madame Dreyfus and her supporters have made i gal lant fight for the ex-captain, and it looks very much as if they will suc--ceed in their efforts. But when the end is readied, how is the country go ing to recoiiipent-e Dreyfus for the in--justicc done'.' iter opportunities were, It seems hard ly realizable that slip should have sunk to the condition she nbv is in. At one time she was the dominant power or the old and the new world, and the wealth of the Indies was poured Into her lap, and now, who so poor as Spain? For four hundred rears Spain's un- progresslve policy has locked up the Philippines, and hns left their wealth undeveloped. Little more than fifty venrs of Anglo-Saxon push and perse verance have developed the Hawaiian Islands Into a magnificent and produc tive estate. Fifty years of American rule in the Philippines will make a wonderful difference there. It was the same story with California. As long as people of Spanish blood Inhab ited it, that grand state was asleep; the moment the Anirlo-Saxon set his foot there everything awoke, and it Is now among the most progressive states of the world. There will be n mighty awakening in the Philippines. Capital will flow in, people of push and progress will Hock there, the mines will be explor er for and developed, the sugar will be cultivated and manufactured upon modern principles and not in the hap py go lucky style that has obtained up to the present, trade will be de veloped and not thwarted as it has been under the Spanish rule. The in habitants will be less taxed and will be taught to be Industrious and finally tlie English langunge will take the place of the Spanish among the poo- pie. Lookinir forward there are irreat possibilities, but they will be reached through many mistakes and much anxiety. It is impossible for a coun try to make an essay in the govern ment of distant provinces without niakiiur mistakes, but eerv mistake will onlv serve to make the future the better and brighter. In this lies the difference between the Latin and the Auirlo-Snxnn. The one improves liv his very errors, the other perpetuates his errors and hugs them to his heart. The dawn of n verv lonsr nisrht is now breaking over the Philippines. December 5, 1898. Sonio articles cannot bo sat isfactorily ordered by letter. This is particularly true of LAMPS Our Mr. Vetlesen, while in the East, visited the factory of Bradley & Hubbard and personally selected a stock of Lamps for this trade. They are beauties of the 1898 and 1899 designs, and to be fully appreciated must be seen. They are here on exhibition; great pleasure will be taken in showing them to customers. A particular feature to which attention is called is the The 'establishment of the First Na tional Bank of Hawaii presents one of the effects of annexation. Talking with the other bankers they seem juite ready to welcome the new com petitor and say that competition is flu best tiling that can occur either to bankers or any one else. The entrance of more capital into the country will be of advantage to many who are en gaged in minor industries. Judge Foster, the news of whose death at St. Luke's hospital, San Fran cisco, was received by last night's steamer, was a man who was highly appreciated on the Islands. He was n deep reader and had a very highly cul tivated mind. To him was due in a great measure the excellence of our li brary. Political and other reasons inade Judge Foster sever his connec tion with Hawaii, but nil who knew him honored him and now mourn the loss of an able and good man. The destruction of the Baldwin ho tel and theater by fire removes one of the land marks of San Francisco. The theater was the most fashionable in San Francisco, but was by no means the prettiest. It was really out of date. Seeing the number of employes and guests that are in a big hotel, it is surprising that not more people lost their lives and speaks well for the tire department .of San Francisco, There will probably be a big fire some day at the Occidental, which belongs also to the old fashioned style of San Francisco building. The more recent liotels are better constructed. EXPANSION. The Philippine Islands together with the Sulu archipelago become n part of the United States. The nn nexauon 01 iiawali wliicli was so much talked of last year becomes nothing when compared with the an nexation of the great Asintie archipe lago. What was the addition of 110,. 000 people to the population compared with the 800,000 of Porto Rico and 8,000,000 or 10,000,000 in the Philip, pines. Moreover In Hawnii the peo ple are Americanized, they have the same language, the same school syS' tern, the same religion, the same conv mereinl standard, as those of the main, land. But In the Philippines the case is very different. The langunge, th school system, the religion, the com mercial methods and the general tone of thought nre at variance with the Anglo Saxon ideals. The dlo is cast, however, and the co- loninl empire of Spain hns disappear ed from the mnp'pf the world, w(iile ilin onlnnlfll m rtlVlii tlio ITnftn1 States commences with nil its cat-es, and we all trust with all its great successes, u.

Attachment, which does not increase the price of the lamp, but enhances tho value very much. This burnt r is some thing new, and gives a bril liant, steady light, equal to electricity, without consuming any more oil.
