- Bravo for the Honolulu boys in Ma
niia. 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.
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
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-
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.

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.
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.

loninl empire of Spain hns disappear

THE LOCK AND THE KEY.
You can operato a lock only with
tho key that fits it. Very well. So
you can euro a diseaso only with tho
medicine, that goes down to tho causo
of it. Now, many so-called diseases
are in truth only forms of ono disease,
branches of ono tree, as wo may say.
For example, if wo can nourisli tho
body and enrich tho blood, we speedily
get rid of many of our troubles,
Buch as Anemia, Fevers, Rheumatism,
Scrofula and Blood Disorders, and so
on all proofs that tho body lacks
vitality and force. Nothing is so
effectivo a body-builder as cod liver
oil; but, alas, how many aro nau
seated at tho very thought of it. In
of tho nutritive properties of Pure
Cod Liver Oil, extracted by us from
fresh cod livers, we have the rose
without the thorn; the valuable drug
minus its vile taste. Add to this tho
Syrup of Ilypophosphitcs Compound
for making bone, and the Extracts of
Malt and Wild Cherry for equally
excellent purposes, and we have a
remedy indeed ; ono as pleiising to the
palateand stomach .as it is potent and
successful in banishing disease in old
or young and making life worth hav
ing. You cannot bo disappointed in
it. It is not like the old things ; it
supersedes them. It is good as it if
famous. Every doso effective. Sold
by chemists throughout tho world.
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.
For years we have been try
ing to find a hall and lanai
lamp that would look well and
that would not blow out by
the wind. We have been suc
cessful, and have them on sale.

this lamp is once lighted no

can blow it out.
