Mr, Dole is a modest man; he,
is-more-rrer a perfect gentlemau
and we are confident that he
would highly disapprove of any
display like the one prepared for
biro by his learned colleague W.
O. Smith. If this government
pretends to be anything, it pre
tends to. .be democratic and
simple in its construction and
form. To receive the head of
such government returning from
an excursion to a not distant part
of the country with drums and
salutes and police, is simply a
piece of sublime ridicule' from
which Mr. Dole undoubtedly
will pray to bo relieved -that is,
if President Dole is of the .same
mind as Judge Dole used to be.
In spite of all these wonder
ful preparations, the President
did not arrive., and the whole dis
play of Smith, Brown,- and the
"foorce" was of no use. Judge
Davidson, fnd Mr. Giflard re
turned by the Kinau, and looked
with some surprise we trust not
apprehension, at the "foorce"
drawn ; in line along the wharf
but there. was.;Jio sign 6f Dole.
The drum sounded again and the
"foorce," whitepantsandall. wejje
marched away and got about an
hour's drill on Palace Square as
an excuse-for having been roused
so early. After their white un
mentionables had got sufficiently
soiled in the dust they were all
owed to go home and have them
washed, while all the generals
went to their -respective homes
and enjoyed their respective
"'am-and heces" and coffee- In
the meantime Mr. Dole remains
on Hawaii without any visible
improvement in his health.
Bravo! Bravo! This is from
the Advertiser, of this morning
"In any event the nevr govern'
ment (of Hawaii) will be distinct
ively American in . form and
principles, and will be gnaran
teed by the protection of the
United States." If that can
mean any kind of government,
except, government of-the peo-
pie, by the people, and for the
people, wepaQOioE Knowwnat a.

THE BOARD OF HEALTH,
HOW ITS -DOSE!
We had to comment on Mr.
Lansing's suggestion a few days
ago, that supplies should be fur
nished totheLeper Settlement
without bids being called for be
cause the Board of Health would
be "hampered" by calling for ten
ders, and we allowed ourselves to
"doubt bis disinterestedness. We
take it all back. It doesn't make
the slightest difference' to the
Bpard evidently, .if tenders are"
advertised or not the contracts
will be given not to the lowest
bidder, butltd the favorite bid
der. A good illustration of this fact
has been shown in regard to the
granting of the contract of fur
nishing medicine and drugs to
the Board of Health. There were'
two competitors foi the contract.
Hol ister & Co, made a bid
which was $250t515wer than" the
bid of Hobron. Newman & Co.
The contract was nevertheless
granted to the last named firm."

calling the public's,, attention to
the 4act, that Mr! "W, O. Smith

in a stiff breeze by fifteen minutes.
THE BRENTON'S REEF CCP.
Ryde (Isle of Wight), Septem
ber 15. The Prince of Wales'
yacht Britannia won the race for
the Brenton's Reef cup. defeating
the American yacht Navahoe,
owned by Royal Carroll Pheips of
New York, by two seconds. It
was an astonishingly close race,
considering t.ie fact that the course
w.as 120 miles in length.
The yachts started at 11:15 yes
terday forenoon. -They reached
the Leeds shortly before 11 o'clock
last night, the Britannia reaching
the winning line one minute and
four seconds ahead of her Amer
ican competitor. After allowing
time from the start it was decided
the British yacht won by two se
conds onlj.
On board the Navahoe it was at
first believed the latter yacht was
the winner, and the winning flag
jvas hoisted by her this morning.
The race- to the stakeboat at
Cherbourg was very close, the Na
vahoe having the beat of the turn
at 5:12 p.m., going around 30 sec
onds ahead' of theBritannia.
Corrall.theownerof the Navahoe,
has decided to enter a protest
againBt the decision giving the
race to the Britannia. There is
a question over reckoning the time
allowance. The course was never
sailed in such fast time before.
WON BY THE NAVAHOE.
Cowes (Isleof Wight), Septem
ber 14. The Navahoe has been
awarded the prize in the race for
the Brenton Beef cup, which, ac
cording to the first calculations,

Navahoe was the fastest over the
Course of 12j)jniies ever 'made.
