Tho handful of veterans of the American civil war residing in Honolulu will eclobrato Memorial Day as it has been hero, and in tho United States, for years past. While Honolulu claims to be thor oughly American in many respects it is surprising that tho day is not more generally observed. At this season of tho year business is not bo thriving that employers could not well afford to close their stores and give tho clerks a full holiday. Notwithstanding tho reports that harmony reigns supremo at the meetings of tho various squads of tho Citizens' Guard, in which tho military Bchcmo is discucscd, thero is a general feeling of dissatis faction among tho members at tho prospect of a change. This organization is largely made up of business men and clerks who, for tho protection of their homes and families, offered their services to the government in the belief, of course, that they would bo assign ed to duty ne.ir their homes and at times when troublo was threatened tho government by its enrmies. When tho danger is past tho mom bers wihh to bo freo from any kind of discipline until again called up on to protect lives and property. Witli a majority of tho guards it is their simple wish to bo allowed to act as special policemen and for that purpose tho body sprung into existence. Tho men have no wish to don uniforms nor to bo obliged to lepoit for drill whenever it is tho with of the commanding officer to have them. They fail to see the necessity for all of this and arguo that if they wish to become experts at drilling, or if thoy are not parti cular as to tho locality they aie to piotcct they might as well join the national :aard and bo done with it. tho ordinary on tho other days, for the purpose of .disposing of his ware. Tim laws governing tho conduct of tin1 auction business on the idntuN were made, evidently, to piOteet tin- men who carry on what they call legitimate business, and tlm liceiibo fee was set at a high figure because it is pretty generally believed that tho auction sales injure to a certain extent the regular business of a place as small as Honolulu. But is it just to have it a caso of "I'll tickle you, but keep your hands off me." According to tho law, an auction eer pays a license of $500 per an num to carry on his trado in Honolulu. In addition to this, ho pays ono half of one percent on tho amount of f-iijes during the year. Wholesale houses, and retail we bolievc, pay according to the value of sales during tho same period, the smaller tho sales tho smaller the liceii6o fee. We may suppose that a firm docs a business which would call for a licenso fee of $250. Sometimes tho proprietor finds himself confronted by a largo assortment of goods that are so far in tho rear in the matter of stylo that ho considers it neces sary to dispose of them in the quickest, and boHt manner. Tho idea of an auction strikes him favorably and ho mounts a clerk on a stool and provides him with a hammer and a loud voice. The goods bring better prices, as a rulo, than if sold over the counter and tho proprietor retires to his homo at tho close of tho day conscious of having had good returns without additional expense. But how stands the man who makes auctioneering his business; tho man who pays flvo hundred dollars - ;vU 10 tho government whether he holds one sale a year or a hundred? Ho suffers an injus tice cither through discrimination or lack of watchfulness on tho part of government officials. His saloa are affected by auction sales by men who do a legitimate business three hundred and ten days in tho year should adopts methods out of Wanted A Happy Mam. Au Eastern cpologuo relates that a great king was sick, and that his physicians declared that nothing could euro him but the shirt of a perfectly happy man. Messengers were sent through the land to find this rarity, and when a likely per son was discovered the envoys ask ed him if ho wanted anything. Tho answer was "Yes;" tho "happy man" wanted something another field, a little more wealth, another a son mure was always some aeu ciency that showed tho imperfec tion of the happiness. At length tho ooarchers came to the verge of a wood and found a man dancing. He seemed poor but merry. Ques tioned closely, he would not admit that ho wanted anything; he had quite enough, and was very jolly. "Then," said tho messengers, "give us your shirt to heal tho king." Tho merry dancer rejoined: "I havo no shirt." Tho king died, and tho problem of how to euro tho king remained unsolved. To day thero are thousands who, like this king, through sickness, aro not happy, and there aro a countless number who havo become happy by removing their sickness through the timely use of tho world-famed Sequah Remedies. Sequoh's Curo for indigestion and kindred ail ments is infallible. Try it, always gives satisfaction. Whilo in Stockton, Cal , some timo ago, Thos. P.
