Pledged to neither Sect nor Party, But Established for the Benefit of All. WEDNESDAY, MAY 17, 1893. Nicaragua has again indulged iu tho luxury of a P. G. "again," be cause Hawaii has not sot tho fashion of governments in theso latitudes. A complete summary of foreign news from tho time of last previous moil to the latest dato by to-day's stoamor will be found in this issue. Thoro aro many itoms of groat in terest iu the budget. Thoro is a direct conflict between Emperor William and tho Gorman Parliament on tho military bill. Parliament has rojectod tho mea sure, thus strongly oxprossiug tho peoplo's tiredness of military bur dens. Tho Germans seom to have decided thoy will rather tako tho risk of being crushed laterally by jealous Powors than accept tho cer tainty of having tho life squeezed out of thorn by tho weight of mili tary taxation. To-day's news contained nothing more important to tho people of Hawaii than the information that Hon. J. H. Blount, tho Special Com missioner of President Cleveland, had boon appointed United States Minister in place of Hon. J. L. Ste vens. From tho intercourse that a great many of thopeoplo have had with Mr. Blount, they will regard his appointment as Minister iu the present crisis as one of tho most friondly acts that tho United States could perform toward tho Hawaiian nation. It is an appointment full of the promise of justice to Ha waiians. OVATION TO MRS. BLOUNT. Great Demonstrations by Hawaiians at Halo and Laupahoohoe. Tho ladies of tho Hawaiian Wo men's Patriotic League at Hilo, last Monday, at 11 a. m., awaited upon Mrs. James H. Blount. The ladies who went as a committee were Mrs. J. T. Baker, Mrs. M. B. H. Brown, Mrs. K. Pilipo, Mrs. M. Kaniaola, Mrs, L. H. West, Mrs. A. Akamu, and Mrs. Ai, accompanying them were, ex-Governor J. T. Baker, and Mr. Henry West. ' Presents of Ha waiian relics and curios, and rare leis of red feathers from tho mumo and golden from tho o-o birds, wero offered to Mrs. Blount, who express ed in most gracious tonus her ap preciation of tho gifts and tho atten tions paid her by tho Hawaiian peo ple at Hilo. A double canoe, decorated with overgreens, with five seats for tho guests, and propelled by stalwart rowers, was placed at tho disposal of Mrs. Blount, upon which she and her friends wore takou to see tho sports gotten up for tho occasion at Piikea. From tho hih bluffs of Piikea, Keawearnahi, decorated with evergreens, twice performed the difficult and daring feat of jumping off the bluffs into tho ocean, at a great height, doing tho act so graco fully that it elicited applauso from tho guests and spectators. Shooting the falls or rapids and riding on tho Burf closed tho aquatic sports. The surf riding, both with tho surf board and with tho canoo, though dangerous to novices and only cap able of being performed safely by exports, was a fitting close to some of our old Hawaiian sports, which are rarely seen now-a-days ami only given for tho benefit of distinguish ed persons. On taking her depar ture from Hilo Mrs. Blount was taken in tho double canoo and laud ed on board the stoamor, amid cheers and the sincere alohas of the poor confiding Hawaiians. On the arrival of tho Kiuau at Laupahoehoo, a largo bonfire was blazing on tho beach, and torch bearers moved back and forth, mak ing a brilliant scone, Roman caudles adding to tho display. Thoro was another demonstration at Mahu kona. Tho water was too rough for Mrs. Blount to go ashore at either place, but leis and flowers in pro fusion woro sent off to hor. At Laha iua another deputation of Hawai ians camo aboard, bringing offerings of fruit, flowers, leis, etc., to tho es teemed lady. In short, along tho whole route the greatest interest was shown by tho natives toward Mrs. Blount. Fake Reporting.

Locked Up in a Lawyer's After Business Hours. Offlce About 5:30 o'clock yestorday after noon Duke, the man who attends tho telephone at tho hackstand at Bethel ami King streets, noticed a man walking about upstairs in tho law offices on tho opposite corner. Ho finally saw him come down and trv tho front door, which was lock ed. Finding ho could not open it, tho man wont upstairs again and ap peared at J. L. Kaulukou's window. He sang out to tho hack drivers be low that ho was locked up, and to go and help him got out. When it was known that ho was locked up, the heartless Jehus began to laugh and mako fun of the man.

Otlieials of tho State Dopartmont confirm tho predictions heretofore made that ovlioprcsontativo Blount would bo appoiuteu Minister Kesi dent to Hawaii. SAID TO IlE AOA1NST ANNEXATION. Tho Call's special telegram says that, to a person who has watched tho course of ovonts since Cleveland camo into powor, tho appointment causes little surprise. "It has boon growing clearor, day by da', that tho Democratic administration was not inclined to look with favor upon tho annexation of tho island king dom. It has also boon growing clearer that only a pretext was wanted to undo what had boon done by President Harrison and Secre tary of Stato Foster before the chango of parties iu powor at Wash ington was mauo. iNow it sooms that tho President is prepared to repudiate annoxation and to repel tho advances of tho Provisional Gov ernment at Hawaii, without oven a pretext. It was a thing almost un heard of whon tho President with drew tho treaty of annexation nego tiated by Fostor and tho Hawaiian Annoxation Commissioners after that document had boon sont to tho Senate and boforo it had boon con sidered by that body. It was an un graceful thing, smacking of discour tesy to the Senato itself." The correspondent goes on to demonstrate that the appointment of Mr. Blount as Commissioner, and his actions in Hawaii, had no legal standing, adding, "Of course Blount has been inspired from hero all through, and equally, of course, ho wont down to Hawaii as a judge whoso decision was written beforo ho had heard any testimony." surrosED Jin. stevens will he sujijia- IULY DISPLACED. It is further anticipated by tho Call correspondent that Mr. Stovons will not bo allowed, as had been ox pectod, to rotaiu his position until tho 21th hist., when ho sails for San Francisco. " While it is not known that Stevens has been instructed forthwith to turn over tho legation to Commissioner Blount, who has been appointed his successor, there is reason to boliovo that ho will not be allowed to remain in charge until tho 21th inst. because of his activity in behalf of annexation." BOWEN AND SEWALL REPUDIATED. "It is further stated at tho do partmont that Bowon and Sowall, who wont to Honolulu shortl' after Commissioner Blount's arrival, havo been active in their efforts to stimu late a sentiment on tho islands in fa vor of annexation aud there is reason to believe that the' sought to create the impression that iu so doing they wero representing tho President. Secretary Greshani has informed Blount that tho President repudi ates everything said and done by theso gentlemen. "It will bo remembered that So wall was an applicant for tho posi tion of Third Associate Secretary of Stato under the pre.-ont administra tion, but laifecl to secure tho ap pointment."

One of the best moves of the Provisional Government is the creation of a Department of Agriculture and appointing such a practical man as Mr. Marsden as Commissioner. The horticulturist and gentle man farmer have been yearn ing for something to fill this large aching void in this res pect and their wants are now satisfied. The grocer whose stock of good things is mixed with garden seed, red herring and other brie a brae feels safer in the seed department of his business under the guardianship of a commission er of agriculture. The farmer may feel safe in planting seed according to the directions in the catalogue and may be rea sonably sure that they will re semble the portrait on the out side of the package. Heretofore one could never feel sure when they planted a package of lima beans whether beans or wild parsnips would be the result. Under the influence of a Commissioner of Agricul ture seeds are guaranteed to come up as represented. The man who planted in joyous laughter the seeds of the ostensible pansy and car nation only in tears to reap the bachelors button and the glistening foliage of the sorg hum will now rest easy and get rid of his insomnia, He can now plant the seed of the Morning Glory and the Moon flower and have the front of his house look like a florist's advertisement in the Century Magazine; no more danger of a bunch of Norway oats and a hill of corn trying to climb the strings nailed up for non-resident vines. The Commission er of Agriculture will see to these things even though he neglect to tell you that the ingredients for an insecticide strong enough to rid the coun try of the McKinley blight can be obtained from us. Leave your orders. Speaking of agriculture re minds us of the Hendry Break er about which we have writ ten occasional thoughts. We have sold these plows to plan tation managers who have had more or less difficulty with plows until they hearkened to the voice of the inventor and bought the Hendry and what they now say is the best break er in the world. The roots seven feet deep and stones as close together as you find them in a Vermont pasture have no depressing effect upon him now, his plow scours all right and work comes easy. Any man who desires to make plowing a pleasure can do so by using a Hendry Breaker. The dry months are rapidly approaching but the promised pumping plant for Makiki re mains in embryo. Private citi zens feel the necessity for water and suggest the Aer motor as the best means of securing it. If we were to re commend it here people would say we have only selfish inter ests to serve; for that reason we refrain from saying publicly that it is the best windmill on earth and that it will pump water while other mills stand idle, that with the tower and wheel being galvanized you have a sure thing against rust and wear. There are other good points we could tell of and will when you come in to inquire about them. Hawaiian Hardware Co., L'd 0ioiltu Bpruukul1 Jtlook, Fort Street. TEMPLE OF Corner Fort & Hotel Streets.
