Let us for the sake of argument admit that there is trouble ahead and that an uprising may take place at some future date. According to the letter of the law a criminal act is contemplated and the per petrators are criminals in the eye of the law. Why not then call in the services of the detective bureau aud leave it to that branch of the police department to ferret out the conspiracies and appre hend the traitors. Captain Larson we are told has made a success since he was ap pointed chief of the detective force. If wo are rightly informed it was through him that the gov ernment received information of the last "uprising," which was still-born. If ho is to bo trusted, lot him do the business for which ho i paid. If not, firo him out und if thore is no proper material to bo found in Hawaii, import an experienced and honorable de tective. Tho system of spies is the ruin of tho countrj. We can assure Messrs. Smith and Hitchcock that tho spying and sneaking scoundrels now in the pay of the government havo dono more to make the ropublic unpopular and hated than has any other ef tho tyrannical measures of our mis sionary oligarchy. j Every law abiding-citizens res- i peels a detective, i.e., a man who dovoto his tirao to bring crime home and carry tho criminals to tho bar .of justice. A spy is an tilterly-dffTorcnt subjoct. No jury will listen to the words of a man who under the mask of friend ship leads a fellow citizen on to crime and then basely turns in former. " Tho government will realizo that fact whon tho cases against Bush and Nawahi are being aired before a jury, And if -the Attorney - general thiuks that tho hostile feelings against spioS only prevail among tho members of tho opposition ho is very much mistaken. The staunchest supporters of the republiojloploro and condemn the polioy of tho administration. They belioTO in vigilance and in protecting tho safety and peace of tho community, Tmt they do not approve of the vilo system of espionage now carried on by tho Marshal. Let the regular police force attend to their business and if it is worthjfiny thing the .citi mbs and the government will be protected. The employment of thieves, rascals, bunas and thugs creates simply a feeling of "con towpt and disgust for a govern Mf, tkat bases ite existeriee on saoh despioaole sapport. yftt don't bslieve that there is r Ike sliltUt . reason for fear of vprinafs; "We do not ap prove at 8Mr6, &at may ap Mfc the UbilhT of tk eoaufcry, Iwstira y, noheeiktwgly , that fe gftYt?sMnt jfc oa Uw right iael Westaie a atom of indigM tioa, aft oe ih wrong xomL areate good will aA peaoe by B i&feaiisK, WWrttuig ad patm- a)eekl ordew of tfca jMisbal., Drop ti apiea and let U regular deteotive foroe dloita.duty.

The sale was withdrawn. Mrs. W.H. Gummings bought one lotjfor $145. Five shares iu Waianae Sugar Go n ere sold to J. M. Dowsett, the agent of H. A. Widemann, for $155 a share. A lot on Fort Street was sold to Mrs. W.H. Smith for $2850. A NEW REPUBLIC. Mr. E. S. Cunha has always been a good republican and a i missionary. Although he doesu't ; belong to the church he has done j his hesl to brine his Central . Union into touch with tbo Cen tral Union of Jones & Co. He has had special prayers offered and circnlhted in print for the benefit of the ruling powers, here and above, and he has shown his allegiance and loyalty to the Dole combination by naming his new building on King Street "The Republic." People around town were gen erally surprised when they saw the inscription on the new struc ture and they wondered what could be the matter. The builder Fred. Harrison was seen this morning. He sim ply smiled and said: "It takes a good Royalist to build up a 're public' I am doing the job. " Cunha looked sad and swore that he was surprised to hear bis loyalty to the republic doubted. -Why," he Baid, "I have done everything to remember the good work of my friend Sereno, Stevens and tho other pirates. I call my building, The Republic, just as Waterhouse calls his "The Qnben" on Nuuanu street. Mine, may be a tinpot republic. But yi u bet it is there and it will stay long after tho "other" re public has disappeared. Dc you want to rent, a store ? In the meantime "the new re public" is going up and in two months tho finishing touch will havo been administered. Thon Cunha mav take down ho sign and call his magnificent block by some other and, then, more appropriate nanio. ANOTHER LIE ! It was understood, that tho Advertiser, since it came under tho Farrington - Hoogs - Coney managementwould drop sensa tional "articles, which in plain English have to be stamped as lies. It is not so though, and the sheet comes out this morning, and for purposes only known to itself tells tho community, that a certain native held "for invest igation" has "given everything away, and that certain prominent royalists will be arrested during the day. It is hardly necessary to state that Mr. Kiln, or whatever his namo may bo, has nothing to "give away'' and that ho conse quently has been unabl6 to fur nish any information to the Marshal. The object of the lie, as pub lished in the Advertiser, is plain enough. It is another attempt of scaring and pumping. Now, let us tell the government once for all, that 200 'KilasM or "Kekilas" wouldn't be able to furnish ono iota of reliable in formation, simply because, there is no conspiracy, no uprising on the tapis. Give the Boyalist a rest, and take your sleep. The "scares" ,do no. good at home, and they do distinctly harajbrpad.

It has listened' to tfee warnings of Mr. Dtiley, and it refuses i to enter tain the . Tie ws of "tha other side." Wa donft think that the editor of tha theatrical journal in. San Francisco knows much of the' ethics of journalism. If he did he certainly would allow both tides to be heard. Mr. Dailey may or may not have made a saccess here. The matttr ii immaterial. The fact remains that the Opera House in Honolulu is under the sole management of Ii. J. Levey. A representative of this paper called on Mr. W. G. Irwin the proprietor of the theater and learn ed from him that Mr. Dailey had no right whatever to advertise himself as the lessee of the Hawaiian Opera House ilr. Irwin itaUd that Dailey or any other theatrical manager was welcome to the house as long as tney brought a decent compai.y here. All ar rangement should be made through L. J. Lsvey. W. G. Irwin is not in the show-business. The refusal of the Jfusic and Drama to publish Levey's letter does not show favorably to that fournal. Mr. Dailey haB indulged in lan guage against Levey that no decent journal tfould tolerate. The re fusal to publish an answer shows exactly what can be expected of a semi-civilized literary journal, fitted only to be read and used in street in San Francisco. A SAD MAN. Fred Harrison is a sad man. And ho has reason to be so. Cunha has engaged him to build up a new republic and he has done so. But that isn't all. Fred, had to apply to the mar shal for an extra spy and he will probably ha-re a guard within a few days for the purpose of "holding' the republic. If the proprietors of Dole's republic are in a state of constant fear and Clamoring for succor, why should not Harrison havo his republic protected and defended against thieves, royalists, and Advertiser editorials? All of these are apt to do away with any republic. And to fill the cup of misery, Fred got a boy. A regular mis sionary boy born on a Sunday. We congratulate him as a father, but we suggest to him to, take the Sunday business out of the kid without delay. To be succesful in building a "republic" and a boy at the same time is probably nil that any or dinary Englishman can do. And yet Fred Harrison looks unconcerned and "to the front" every time. CORRESPONDENCE We do not hold ourselves rasoousible for the opinions or the utterances of onr correspondents. Editor Holohua: Below 3 ou will find a copy of a letter which I forwarded to the Music & Drama which ho re fused to publish on the grounds that it was of "a purely personal nature which it would be mani festly unjust to publish" Why did he publish certain articles in his issue of tho 2-ith jStov. which were also of a personal and mali cious charaoter to uij'self, per haps the Advertiser ou reading my letter to the Music & Drama may glean some information as to who manages the Opera House: Honolulu, Dec. 4,1894. To the Editor of the Music and Drama. Sir: . In your issue of Nov, 24th, I see that theersatile Mr. Dailey has adopted a new method of advertising, himself. The fast iss Mr. Dailey was. not a-success in Honolulu. An unpleasantness .existecTbetween himselfand cer tain members of bis troupe, and as a consequence the public were, the "sarferere. . Had Mr. Dailey devoied -his time and the'' little tal en tin e poeeese b . t o the Theatre instead of -cta J?oker Table, it would have bees much better for all parties. Asit was he brought thehok company into disrepute and the season- turned out a mel ancholic failure. VI need not en large on this, as no doubt Mr. Dailey's successes or failures in San Francisco are too patent; it would bo -well, however for tho Dramatic public to know that the whole of the Press critioisms, that appeared in the Honolulu papers were written by himself. The Opera House is still in my charge aa it has been since Oct. 23rd, 1891, and Mr. W. K. Dailey has neither "shifted the cut on Levey or raised him out of the game," as he in the well-known gamblers phraseology states in your paper of jSov. 24th. Yours Truly. L. J. Levey. Sole agent and Manager "for the Proprietors" of tho Hawaiian Opera House. Editor Holomua: nernsinj? last night's issue i x, a - , of the "Evening Siar," I discover I that the Marshal is doing me the ! houor of his "special" attention. ; I bad hoped to be consigned to oblivion, but seem destined to a different fate. After my last experience with conpiracies and peaceful revo lutions," I have had quite enough. "Once bitten, twice shy." Upon my past political actions in this country. I can look only with regret; still while experience is a dear school, what it teaches is taught well. All my political or revolution ary tendencies are completely eradicated, and all I desire is to be left alone to endeavor to earn a legitimate livelihood. Henry ton Werthern. English Opinions on' the War. It will be remembered that two or three months ago the Spectator told us that national feeling was an almost unknown quality in the East, and that an ann- of 10,000 Chinese landing at Nagasaki, could conquer Japan without any appreciable difficulty. It has now found out its mistake, and recognizes that the strong nation al feeling of Japan, manipulating European armaments with Europ ean skill . mukes her a truly form idable power.. The Spectator is not altogether pleased with the prospect. Hitherto war in Asia has been war with limited liabil ity; undertaken when necessary without fear, and without a thought of reprisals. But now in all future operations in East ern Asia, "Japan must be reck oned with as if tho people were white men. Japan caunot be coerced, or even bullied any more, for no Power could attack her without all the labour and espenso and risk which would attend a European campaign." An ingenous avowal of the gospel of colour; but one that we are -s6moJlrt5iIpris-l- -to ftmJ itr the columns of-the humanitarian Spectator. One of the most glor ious elements in the glorious des tiny of "'white mou." lies, it ap pears, in their ability to coerce or to bully Jwith impunity "yel low men,'' and it is to be a mat ter for grief to the "whites" that a race of ''yellows" s now in a position to strike back. The at titude of The Times, that of wel coming a new - comer into the hierarchy of civilized nations, seems to us much more in accord ance with the. principles that one of these nations ought to profess. The Economist, in an able and teuiperafe .article, examines the situation from the point of view of the Euroeau trader aud the European tai payer. What such desire is, of course, peace, as speedily as! possible and upon moderate terms. Whichever way the war ends, it is not, thinks this paper,- likely to be in any way advantageous to Europeans. If the Chinese', should win, they would probably demand an in demnity from Japan, and would for years after be less ready to glisten to European remonstrances. On the otier hand, if Japan should gain a complete victory, a new, power would have been born, which would compel the greatPowen to increase the cost ly fleets the; already maintain in the farther! Pacific. Japan, too, would for sone time be a heady and excitable State, ready for fresh advenfares, and not disin clined, perhtps, to ally herself firmly with s3me European Pow er in order to undertake some enterprise o! the greatest mo ment. She vill in fact try to be come a conquering powor, and dependencies to govern. That would not be to the advantage of any European country, or of gen eral civilizatjon, and might in deed seriously hamper Europe in keeping onfer in Asia, a task which sho accomplishes at pres ent with very little expense to herself.

Box 441. Hawaiian Hardware Coinp'y. November 27, 1S94. If we are to judge the popu larity of an article by the number in actual use Haviland China stands on the crest of a popular wave. The reason for it is the low price at which it is sold. In the United States, where the peo ple are "Haviland Mad," tho price is thirty- per cent higher than it is here owing to the tariff on this ware being so much greater between France and the United States than with Hawaii. We have sold thousands of pieces here and have never had anyone complain of being tired of it. Here's a something about the de corations on Haviland China that never wearies the e3;e.
