Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Established for the Benefit of All.
THURSDAY, OCT. 12, 1893.
A little coutrovorsy sometimes
tira up n groat donl of history that
would otherwise Ho concealed.
Iu the opinion of our evening an
nexation contemporary the morning
paper is no good. Iiather rough on
its annexation running mate, but tho
Star is bound to tell tho truth when
it's not against itsolf.
Our morning contemporary's
coach to the chancollor of tho ex
chequer says that since tho Provi
sional GoTernmont "has been in
powor it has paid off tho public in
debtedness to almost tho last cent
and Btill has a surplus on hand, no
mattor what itB opponents may say
to tho contrary." Never mind what
itB opponents may say. Suppose
instead you tacklo the official state
ment of the Ministor of Finance
(see weekly financial statement of
this date), which states that tho net
indebtedness of tho country is
nearly four million dollars.
In answer to a communication
from the Minister of the Interior,
the Board of Health states that tho
rules requiring the port physician to
precede the pilot, in boarding an in
coming ship, were suspended on
November 2-i last. Tho provision of
the Civil Code governing tho pilot's
action makes it his duty to imme
diately put off to the vessel, and
ascertain for himself if any conta
gious disease be on board before
boarding hor. These facts wipe out
all excuses lately heard for the
ilow coach methods of our pilotage
"From all that can be at prosout
learned it seems the fight for annex
ation is to take place at this end of
the line. The fight at the other end
has already been fought. Tho ques
tion now is to which of the powers
shall Hawaii fall." In the foregoing
words tho morning organ of the
Provisional Government as much as
intimates that information has been
received that the annexation scheme
is dead as a door nail at Washing
ton. As to the closing statement
of what the "question" is, the Adver
tiser is hardly qualified to give an
opinion. If the United States has
decided against robbing Hawaii of
its autonomy, there is no fear that
Hawaii shall "fall" to any powor.
She shall stand, as she has done tho
past fifty years, with the kindly sup
port of several powers that of the
United States especially.
WHY THE RUSSIAN FLAG WAS
On the 2d iust. this paper an
nounced that the Russian Hag was
to be saluted that evening by the
Provisional Government battery, in
grateful return for the unqualified
recognition by the Russian Govern
ment of the "Hawaiian Republic"
as M. de Giers, the Russian Chan
cellor, called it. It grieves us at this
remote date to have to contradict
the announcement of the salute in
question. Although it was true
when it was made our information
having been obtained at headquart
ers a fatal hitch occurred in tho
arrangements. Thus: Tho Provi
sional Government in a qualm of
self-abnegation thought fit at the
sixteenth hour of the day to consult
the United States Admiral on tho
propriety of marking its recognition
by the Russian bear with such jubi
lating roar of cannon Austrian can
non at that, although they probably
wouldn't have told this to the Czar.
"Well," the Admiral said iu effect,
"I don't see much harm in shooting
off your gleeful gratitude. But, my
dear fellows, really iuternational
etiquette doesn't require that sort
of acknowledgment of diplomatic
courtesy." At all events, what tho
Admiral said convinced our inexperi
enced rulers that perhaps after all
they would only make themselves
absurd by shooting off their brass
mouths in republican ecstasy over
being noticed by tho most absolute
monarchy in Christendom. They
would just use tho Chaucollor's
note as so much more pap to
keep the organs alive, and quiet
ly evince thoir devoted gratitude
to Russia for her imperial nod
by means of a gilt-edged note,
composed by their most export
diplomatic soribo aud written in
the finest flourishes of Mr, Ed.
Stiles' artistic calligraphy. For the
rest, have it fraukod "On P. G. Ser
vice," iu a silk-lined onvelope, but
with a surcharged vermilion stamp
on it as a contribution to the phil
atelic album of one of the young de
Ulors. Anyhow, tho order for a
salute to tho Russian flag was coun
termanded, The fnoU loakiug out

The financial statement was ac
cepted and placed on file.
Minister Damon read a letter from
Theo. H. Davies & Co., agents Canadian-Australian
receipt ot communication prouering
an advance of one-half of expense
of despatching tho S. S. Australia
three days iu advance of regular
time. Tho firm return their deep
est thanks to the Government for
tho assistance in question, as well as
for all its consideration aud aid iu
connection with tho stranding of
the S. S. Miowora.
Ministor Damon thou read a re
port of Mr. J. M. Oat, Postmaster
General, on his official tour of Maui.
Ho said Mr. Oat would leave for
Hawaii on Friday to inspect the
post offices and instruct postmas
ters thoro as may bo required.
Ministor Damon remarked that he
had ordered tho August bills paid,
and only tho bills for September re
mained to be paid. Ho would again
call attention of the Councils to the
irregularity prevailing iu tho matter
of public printing and advertising.
He had prepared a resolution which
no hoped tuo Couucils would pais.
The resolution was to tho effect that
each head of a department should
designate some one of his clerks to
attend to all advertising in his
department, and that all advertising
bo ordered on forms prepared for
the purpose, no advertising bills to
be paid unless .so ordered.
Mr. Waterhouse wasfjladtho Min
ister of Finance had taken this mat
tor up. It had been under some
consideration of tho printing com
mittee. Mr. Brown supported tho resolu
tion. All printing aud advertising
should be done by tender. When
he was a member of tho Attorney
General's staff, ho uoticed that thoro
was a difference sometimes amount
ing to 7C percent between bills from
different nowspapors. When tho
collector of one was shown tho
lowor rate of another paper, ho
would say that was all right and
make it tho same as the other.
Mr. Damon would hardly go so
far as to havo all advertising done
by tender. Lot thiiin make the pro
posed change for the present.
The resolution passed.
Minister Smith had a resolution
regarding the place of holdiug tho
terms of tho Second Judicial Circuit
Court. After many years of agita
tion to change the seat of justice
from Luhaiua to Wailuku, it was
enacted that tho Juno term be hold
at Wailuku aud tho December term
at Lahaina. It was tho prevailing
opinion on Maui that both forms
should be hold at Wailuku, Ho
presented n resolution that the pro
priety of so altering the law as to
have both terms held at Wailuku
should be roforred to the Judiciary

At 2:30 the Councils wont into
Tho Advertiser comes out this
morning again with one of its bold
lies, that tho P. G. has "proved it
self tho friend of the people." This
is correct of course if by "people"
we are to understand only the in
finitesimal number of the "family
compact," who seized tho govern
ment with Amorican help and rob
bed the mass of tho natives of all
thoir rights, and who havo since
governed on the principlo of "scratch
my back aud I'll scratch yours."
Those Tiser's lies are not deserving
of any notice; but what may be
wortlry of attention, are tho confi
dential hints droppod about "com
plications that are now arising
arouud Hawaii." Wo have long boon
expecting as much especially know
ing what the policy of tho P. G. has
been, viz.: to force annexation on
thoir own terms through menace of
foreign help. Tho P. G. have been
bout on annexation only in view of
preserving themselves in powor? and
they thought that American jingo
ism would be only too glad to ac
cede to thoir terms. But when they
found that their calculations had
miscarried, they evidently looked
around to try to carry thoir threats
into execution; and there canuot bo
any doubt, in the mind of any sensi
ble man, that to their machinations
is due, for one, the recognition by
Russia. This move of the Russian
Government without waiting for
tho settlement of the matter pond
ing before the U. S. Government is
certainly vory extraordinary, and
cannot be considered as anything
else but a slight on America, and a
decisive stop towards further inter
ference in tho Hawaiian embroglio.
Aud when the Advertiser this morn
ing comes out with tho naive con
fession that "the question now is to
which of the power shall Hawaii fall,"
thoro cau bo no difficulty in believ
ing that negotiations havo really
been initiated with tho various for
eign powers, to sell tho stolen coun
try to tho best bidder, whether it bo
England, Russia, or tho Old Nick,
if he promises to keep our present
rulers the longer in power. True
Americans therefore had better open
their eyes iu time.
TOOK A TUMBLE.
KoBult of a Slip in Landing the Mio
wera Propeller Blades.
Four large and heavy blades be
longing to tho spare propeller of tho
steamship Miowera were brought in
by Commodore Simonson's steam
scow this morning, each blade mea
suring 7 feet in length and weighing
from one and a half to two tons
apiece. Such massive weight requir
ing substantial hoisting apparatus,
the transfer from the scow to tho
dray on the wharf was done with
tho aid of the steamer W. G. Hall.
Tho transfer to the steamer was
easily made, and then began tho
slinging of the burdens on to the
dray. When the second blade was
being lowered to tho dray a sudden
slack in one of the ropes caused tho
heavy iron to slide off one side of
the dray, bringing along with it one
of tho teamsters, who landed on his
hands and knees, but without receiv
ing the slightest injury. This little
incident, made ludicrous by tho sud
denness of its occurrence and the
pasture iu which tho teamster was
thrown, auorded a tew minutes'
hearty laughter to the crowd of
loungers present. Commodore Si
monson said that tho fall of the
teamster reminded him of tho divers
at tho Miowora, goiug down hands
and head foremost after coal.

With the resources provided
Hawaii by nature, (and by such
resources ve mean the fine
quality of building stone), a
lighthouse could be construc
ted on the point where the
Miowera struck so that such
accidents would be of "the past
and sea captains would not
have the hours of anxiety that
make young men old. If it be
necessary to have a lighthouse
halfway between the entrance
to the channel and the dock let
the old one remain where it is,
but that fact should not prevent
the erection of a new one, the
expense of maintenance would
be light compared with advan
tages to all seafaring men. If
the government had a million
dollar reserve fund it might
copy New York City in its ex
penditures after the fashion of
the bartholdi btatue and make
one of some prominent poli
tician and call it "Blank En
lightening his Constituents"
instead of "Liberty Enlighten
ing the World." This would
be too extravagant for this little

arrived on Friday and with it
there came to us fence wire
both black and galvanized, in
No. 5 of the former and Nos. 4,
5, 6 and 7 in the galvanized.
For the past few weeks there
has been something of.a famine
in the wire market and some
people have been obliged to
delay repairs and improve
ments until now. In connec
tion with the large trade in
wire which we have built up
within the past few months we
have revolutionized fence build
ing on the Hawaiian Islands by
introducing the "Improved
Lock Fence" the materials for
making which we sell with
the regular -wire used in
ordinary fence building. The
economy of a locked fence
sticks out all over it like points
on barbed wire. ' The expense
of digging post holes and buying
posts is almost entirely dis
pensed with; in the new style,
posts may be put fifty feet
apart and the fence is stronger
than the old style with posts
every five feet. A whole herd
of cattle may run pell mell
against a locked fence and
find themselves sprawling on
the ground while the fence re
mains intact. In the matter of
expense, it is cheaper limn the
old style for the first building,
and repairs may be made by
one man where the old style
would require two or three.
Quite a number of managers
of plantations are using our
methods of fence building and
the demand will increase with
the arrival of the thousands of
coils of wire by the "Pfluger."
