A DOLEFUL FEAST.
A Repetition of History.
The midnight hour was drawing on,
Flushod in roposo lay Honolulu;
But in the palace of the king.
Tho herd of soliliors shout and sing
There in the royal palace's banquet hall
King Dole holds fort h,higli festival. x
Tho soldiers sit ia-ghttering rows,
The beakers are draineu, the red wino flows;
Tho beakers clash and tho soldiers sing
A ploaslug sound to tho moody king.
King Dolo's cheeks flush and his wild eyes
nis spirit now waxes bold with wino;
Uutil by maddening passion stung,
He scoffs at Cleveland!!! with impious
And his poor heart swells as he wildly raves
'Mid shouts of applause from his fawning
He spoke the word and his eyes flushed
The ready servants wont and came;
Vessels of massive gold they bore,
Of Liliu'a property, the plundered stoie.
Then seizing a consecrated cup,
Tho king in his fury fills it up;
Ho fill, and hastily drains it dry;
From his foaming lip leaps forth the cry,
"Clevel aud Liliul to you iny scorn I fling!
I am tho Dole, tho P. G's. king."
Yet scarce had (ho impious words been said
When the King's heart shrank with secret
Suddenly died the shemt aud yell . -A
death-like hush on the tumult fell.
And see! and see! on the white wall high,
The form of a hand went slowly by.
And wrote and wrote in sight of all
Letters of Fire upon the wall!
King Dole sat still with a stony look;
His trembling knees "with tenor shook;
The menial throng nor spoke nor stirred;
Fcarfroxe their blood no wand was heard.
Sereno's kahunas catae, bat none of all.
Could read the writing on the walL
At length to solve those words of flarae,
Fearless, bat meet, Paul the prophet,
One gkncehe gave, and all was dear!
"King Dole, there is reason in thy fearL
Those words proclaim thy empire ends
The day of woe and wrath impends; -Weighed
in the balance 'wanting found.
Thou and thy Empire strik tke grow&tl!'

Funeral of the Late. P. S.
In accord with previous notice,
as given in the daily papers the

large numbers of friends of the de

and J. O. Carter. Sixteen

ers and -walked by the sides of
tho hearse. There was a beauti

It will bo well to receive with
caution the "news" about the
Hawaiian situation which drib
bles in from various quarters by
way of vessels that left Honolulu
later than the last mail steamer.
But all indications tend to tho
conclusion that the Provisional
Government does not propose to
yield to persuasion and consent
to the restoration of the status
quo of early January, and that
our Government has never had
any purpose of employing un
axithorized force to restore the
dethroned monarch of Hawaii.
Unless something can be agreed
upon between Mr. Willis and the
provisional authorities, Congress
will havo to take some action for
the extrication of the United
States Government from tho awk
ward predicament in which it
was put by Mr. Steven's officious
ness in promoting the annexation
scheme. The one thing certain
is that annexation will not be the
solution of the difficulty,
whether the "legitimate Govern
ment'' is restored or not. The
provisional government was set
to last only until union with the
United States could be agreed
upon, and the Queen relinquish
ed her authority only until such
time as the wrong done her by
authority of the United States
should be undone by the same
authority. Good faith would
require the provisional govern
ment to.vretira now and let the
people of the islands settle the
questions of their future Govern
men, but good faith has had
little to do with thoperformances
of tho "Missionary Children."

"Who' the Men are.
The principal witnesses in tho
Hawaiian case, now on trial
before the people of this country,
are Mr. Stevens and Mr. Blount.
Indeed, to no smll degree the
main question at issue, just now,
is the question of the veracity
and good judgment of these two
men. In making up a verdict, on
this phase of tho matter, the
character, standing and record of
the men must be taken into con
sideration and must form the
basis of a judgment so far as
their rival and contradictory
statements are concerned. In
this connection, it will not be
forgotten that the Republican
administration, under which Mr.
Stevens acted, "disavowed" his
course, though availing itself of
the results of that course to seek
tho making, of political capital.
Mr. Blonnt has been a member
of Congress for something liko
twenty years and had resigned
his seat with a magnificent ex
pression of his fellow members'
confidence and admiration. In
that, the Republicans joined un
animously. When he was sent to
Honolulu, his formor Republican
associates in the House unani
mously approved his selection as
that of a man of immense ex
perience in dealing with our
foreign relations and of a most
judicial cast of mind. Stevens
was "disavowed" by his party
representatives, and Blount was
endorsed by tho Republicans in
Congress who had been associ
ated with him for years. Grand
The Average Life.
The annual mortality of the
entire human race amounts,
ronghly speaking, to 33,000,000
persons. This makes the average
deaths p6r day over 91,000, being
at the rate of 3730 an hour, or 62
people every minuto of the day
and night the year round. A
fourth of the race die before
completing their Sth year, and
one-half before the end of the
17th year, but the average dura
tion of life is about 38 years.
Not more than one person in .100,
000 lives to be 100, Exchange.
