It is extremoly gratifying to
this geutlemanto have his nam?

duce his. It is proper, seeing the
prominence given to this callow
bantling by our missionary
friends, to examine into his war
rant and find how and why he
claims tho peculiarly violet tinge
of his circulating fluids. Tho
pedigree of Kunuiakea is not a
very gratifying one for the Amer
ican League, or any other cos
mopolitan crowd who bolster up
the "prince" in his ridiculous
HTi father was
ivaeo. wuo was descended iroin a
lino of petty Maui chiefs:
"Lords of a hundrtd tpf.arinen."
In former days there wore three
high grades of nobility, niuupw.
nuha, and wohi, Kaeo and his
progenitors did not belong to any
of these, they hold land in vas
salage from their superiors, and
gave themselves no ridiculous
pretensions of rank. Of course
it will be claimed by the ancient
law of mookuauhau-alii that tho
particular tint of blue enjoyed by
Kuuuiakea comes froin tho mo
ther. So be it. It is now in
order to examine the pedigree of
Lihilahi Young. On her father s
side Laliilahi has no pedigroo.
Poor old boatswain Young was
ennobled by the kings, but that
gave him no ancestors, so the l
"prince" hud better maintain a
discreet silence. Kayanaeha tie
mother of Lahilahi was tie
daughter of Kaliko (w) and
Keaka, a cast-oil Tahitian chiot
of au infinitissimally low rank.
Kaliko claimed successively Ki
iimaikai, aud Kaleipaihala its
the father of Kaoanaoha, and .f
she could prove the claim Kumti
ake.t would have a show to
hold his shadowy title. Both
these high chiefs however, do-
therefore Kaoanaeha the grand
mother of Knnuiakea, was realiv
the daughter of Keaka whom ts
was stated was a Tahitian of lit
tie rank and no consequence.
On page 310 of Alexander's
History in a "select" genealogy
(why select?) we find the state
ment that Kaoanaeha was the
daughter of Keliimaikai - and
brother of Kekuaokalaui. Th:s
is not true. X can cite Malo aud
Kamakau to controvert this do
liberate misstatement of facts.
Where is the nobility of Kunui
akea now? Where is the bag's
of his claim? Of course a man

Honolulu, May 24, 18&L
Tho following from the San
Francisco News Letter, ("that
goes to tha heart of the matter")
is a right royal answer to an ar
ticle tht.t appeared . in the
Advertiser of Mav 16. sinned A
The qucstion of the extension
of woman's snffrfl"0 in f Iia rw-llc !
the Eastern editors,
anA sinRe ifc was Sven out that
Mrs. Astor would lead the move
ment, iis interest has doubled.
There are many objections to
women ass voters. Decent men
do not take any great interest in
the polls, aud how can decent,
refined women be expected to do
so Why should we give tho
heeler and the tough the privilege
of escorting his ignorant wife or
his mistress to the polls to re
enforce his vote? Women are trac
table and emotional, and for this
reason ur-3 easily influenced by
artful, "magnetic" men, aud a
handsome rascal would have all
the women in town votiug for
him. Beuides, with suffrage we
wonld have a lot of manish
women the kind that men de
spise." ' . .

The Advertiser who catches
a persons eyo usnany wire a
customer. Many different stylos
of advertising have been adopted
and with more or less success, by
tho believers in the use of prin
ters ink. The manufacturers of
Pears Soap, for instance, occasion
ally buy paintings that have
been on exhibition in iho Pari's
Salon nnd have lithographs made
from them for the pnrposo of
bringing their product before
iho people. In addition to such
side issues, Pear spends hundreds
thousands of dollars annually
among the newspapers and mag-
aziues. Dome years ago tue Agents :
of certain article on sale in New I
York made a hit in advertising by j
having on Broadway during bus- j
iness hours two fatluessly dressed
Xegroes wearing very high collars, '
on the backs ot wnich was prin
ted "Use Smiths Pills." The
idea was novel and tho public
caught on. Bising Sun Stove
Polish has been kept before tho
public for years through persis
tent, and sometimes expensive
advertising. Twenty odd years
ago the manufacturers of this
polish started half a dozen men
across the ornimeut to paint signs
on rocks and fenced. Tho Aer
motor Co. , of Chicago have in
creased its sales more than five
hundred per cent in two years by
the use of "printers ink. "Wo
believe we have been instrumen
tal in increasing the sales of the
Aemotor by keeping everlastingly
at it in Hawaii.
"We do not wish to say that ad;
vertisiug will soil any manufac
tured article; there is no use
spending money in advertising
'cheap and nasty" goods be
cause tho people will not be hood
winked. If Haviland China was
not tho superior article Jt is, all
.aunflilvoutisiing o it -.would, uot
have sold the thousands of "pieces
that we have. AYo simply call
the attention of tho people to it
and its superior quality is appar
ent to the customer directly a
piece of it is examined.
Printers ink has helped the sale
of the James Looked Pence but
it would not have donos so if it had
been as flimsy as tho or dinay wiro
fence. First; the economy there
is in building it recommends
it to tho plantation manager and
then its durability clinches the
the sale. If tho stays and wash
ers cost as much as an ordinary
redwood post our sales of the
material would not have reached
such enormous proportions.
Our average salo of the Pansv
Iron Stove is about two a day the
year round. If was not the
best iron stove on the market we
would not sell that many m six
months. Advertising is. the tip
to tho public the good points in
the article sells it just as the good
qualities of the Fischer Steel
Bange make it a desirable article
for people who wish to economise j
in the use of fuel.
We buy only what has proven
good after people in tho United
States or Europe have given it a
trial; we profit by their experince
if the articles are goood vvo buy
and sell them; if they aro poor
we steer clear of them. When
we advertise an article it is to at
tract attention to it; tho news
paper the button we push, the
salesman does the rest
Persistent advertising coupled
with the articla being a superior
one has. sold thousands of the
Frank Walcot Emory File. If. it
had been no better than an "or
dinary scytka stone we probably
would not have sold twenty.
