Thz Life rfthc Land is Established in Righteousness. HONOLULU. JAN. 2, 1895, The retirement of Mr. V. N. Armstrong from the editorship of the P. C. Advertiser has been an nounced. The paper and iis read ers are to be congratulated. Al manach stories trill be at a dis count in the future. "We wish our contemporary belter luck in its next venture. aIr W. 3. Abmstro.vg gives Air. Dole a parting "kick" in an editorial on "calipers." The Pre sident, Adjutant-general and the "ATnjah'' comes nearer to Mr. Armstrong's ideal thim anybody else around town. They are all legs and heads (top-knots); all trousers and collars. But we don't see why Armstrong should call attention to the fact. FOOLED AGAIN. The "Heroes" See the New Year In. Bloodshot eyes, weary looks and bad tempers were noticeable yes terday morning among the sup porters of the Eopublic. And.! there was cause enough for the described condition The attor ney general end marshal had again been listening to ridiculous rumors, and "Mnrmontly" yarns and the result was, that it was dead sure, this time, that a royal ist uprising would lako place and to quoll it tho services of tho army, citizens reserve, sharp shooters etc. .etc., were called upon. So instead of-fjitting coi -fortably at homo among friends and bail tho arrival of ISOo-with a hearty toast in punch orginger alo, as tho case ami temperament -Mho-man mTgTiTbe,lFe' Graves" donned their bftllsandj their guns and wentl ouIdeid-HjuspTOlo in pioket duty. Thoy stood silontly in the night outsido the houses of the "royalists" and. lisleued to the -merriment going on. Tho station house was crowded with specials. Tho marshal slaid thore nil night and no sleep visited tho heads ol ma go'vdi'nuium. .es, waa ono sensible man among thorn and that was Mr. Damon. He was present atjhewedding- at tho house of Mr. J. A. Cum - mins and seemed to enjoy himself very well. .But then Mr. Damon never did tako stock in Mr. Smith's "uprisings." That noth ing happened or was Intouded to happen has been .proven, and we can only hope that the, "boys" didn't catch cold by watohing tko; moon, and that they have Joh'd their tempers again. - me pniy seriour question m uio lUHiioi is, laaiucu riuicuious action of -the authorities dieera:!- it, not; adobe the government, we wouldn't care a snap for that, but toe whole country, and it is cer-v Uinlyinjujiius to tho wfcdlocpru Mkuaity. 'The Advertiser his&id the same several times and we fully agree wi!6 it. Our morn ing contemporary, though, found the causa lor such disturbances in the talk of ''noisy" royalists, and claimed that tho rumors em anated from royalists. That is where the Advertiser is wrong, and wo have no doubt that if it had considered the matter care fully, it would have been able to discover the true culprits. When a murder is committed, a clover detectivo always asks himself, who cau bo benefited by this crime? And the same prin ciple should bo followed in this instance. We ask then, who can be benefitted by these contestant "scares" Certainly not the royalists. Surety not the army and citizens guard who nro put to inconvenience and annoyance. Tho authoritiss, wo are sure will rather sleep in peace than being in constant fear of bloodshed and insurrection. Who thon are the gainers. Tho answer is simple enough. Mr. Hitchcock's spies. Tho present government has surrounded itself with a perfect j army of spies. It Iirs selooted tho tonghest and most despicable j clwracters in town to "watch and report." It feeds this gentry with j munificent salaries, but it ex-! pects something in return. If no reports come in the spy's ser vices are no longer needed, and is it to be expected that the class of men selected for this service would have any scruples in making up reports or swear away the liberty of any man? H. von "Werthern stated under oath in the Bush trial that the Marshal told him that ha mast bring in reports about the conspiracies of the rovahsts. When he an- swered that the dreaded royalists were doing nothing whatever, the great marshal answered that their inactivity was h sure sign oijr0ie i,eia :t reception in the - r their conspiring; and whether - nflernoon at his residence. In they did or did not, reports must private bouses the u.snal fosts, be sent in or no salary would be j laang and -jollifications took place forthcoming. We have bad even if the celebrants made less numerous similar statements from spies now in the Bervice of the marshal. With such inducements what can be expectod ? It was pay day Inst Monday. The marshal's pets had been idle for sometimes and many of them were afraid of getting the "sack" when pay day came around, and consequently rumors were set a-fiying and re ports were as numerous as mos quitoes. The result was satis factory to the spies. The marshal has evidently not very much discernment, he seems at least to swallow every report which come3 to him about the wicked royalists. We are aware of one report brought in by an fngenious spy, which probably convinced ths lOiushftl of the existence of a "plot" The spy had scoured tho town last Mou- da. Ho had watched tho natives especially and behold! he had counted 200 imn in preparation for the cooking of the festive pig or dog. That clenched the mat ter. Soper donned his jniform and tho guard made thsir wills and went on duty. That it was .New Year's day yestbrda' and TOTrfc-luo, Hnwaiians always feast themselves auclfriouds. n that day was immaterial. Tho 200 imu representing 200 pgs wore uSZ'nndmi a ih oroos Av i badly scared. sucu js jljo manner "in which Mr. Hitchcock runs the police department. The ex-autocrat of Hilo complained tho other day to a merchant of this city, that ho waspreveuted from ffiaT law. If the cabinet would only allow him to do so" he should soon "fix ' things. Poor stable'andf ' strong' ' republic whose marshal needs martial law! But iKlfnot about time for tho government to ring down the curtain onlhis faro. Yigilaaco is necessary to nrjr government and should be observed. But abject fear of shadows (or imu) :o& decent and rospodtable menUwho will teli hiinlhb truth Rnd nothing but tuo. irotu, and tlie community will hear no more about the rev olutions and the guard can sleep in peace. Who Was Disturbed? The natives were much dis turbed on New Year's Evo by repeated and uuusunl rumors of uprisings. J3. G. A. Since when did. tho' army, tho sharpshooters, tho citizen guards, the poi. e, tho authorities and Lie nisaton-iries in genial come un- tbueiiep, 'rio "natives?" Arrived In Japan. A note was received at the Legation here from Mr. Fujii tho diplomatic agent to Hawaii who left for homo in November. Mr. and Mrs. Fujii reached Japan on the 25th of November after a pleasant voyage.
