FIUDAY, MAY 31, 1895
The funeral services over
'the remains of Monsieur Henri
Leon Verleye, the late Consul
and Commissioner - for the
French Republic, will bo held
at the Roman Catholic Cathedral
on. Friday afternoon at 3
o'clock, after which the body
will bo conveyed, to tho Roman
Catholic Cometrv on Kins
street. Friends and acquaintances
and the public generally
are invited to attend.
Three Little Lawyers.
We;smcerily hope that bur
compositors will get tho heading
to these xemarks correct
and not place us in the embarrassing
'position of calling tho
three eloquent orators of Wednesday,
"three little something
elses." -
Messrs. Smith, Hatch arid
Thurston found it necessary to
appear before the hundred and,
score men who were gathered
in tho American League Hall,
and explain their honest inten
tions, thqir solid determinations
and their positive belief in
We do not know if the 120
men present at the meeting
were sufficiently- taken in by
the eloquence of three celebrated'
attorneys. All we can
say is that there must bo sdroe
lie knocking around somewhere,
and we are inclined to
believe that tho lie is in the
bosom of the three little lawyers.
. Mr. W.O. Smith stated that
John RichardBon "lied" when
he gave out tho statement that
Smith was against annexation.
Let us see for a minuto who
of the two is entitled to tho
crodence of the public. " .
Mr. John Richardson, a
prominent lawyer, a leader
ariiong tho Hawaiians and, as
we have reason to believe, a
personal' friend of Mr. W. 0.
Smith, wrote a letter in the
month of March to a relation
in Honolulu, in which he stated
that ho had interviewed Mr.
W. .0. Smith, who had been
on a visit to Maui, and had
from him received a
or advice, or hint, to the
effect that it would bo well for
the. said Richardson not to
throw his lot in with the rabid
jingoists, tho loud-mouthed
annexationists, the ..unbridled
haoles who howl, day and night
for tho destruction of the independence
of this country.
Mr. Smith niay give the lie
to Mr. Richardson because the
latter is absent. .But wno is
interested in the. matter, who
will tho thinking citizen believe
in? .
Mr. Smith's political .life is
imperilled if John "Richardson
tells "the truth.
John Richardson has abso
'JiifcV ft
lutely no interest in placing Mr.
'Smith in a false
,cally or otherwise. Wo
lie'vo, in fact that he has
proved his grertt confidence in
him by nominating him as guardian
for his orphan nieces and
nephews af 6w days ago. Mr.
Smith is not'm favor
except he and his crowd
can control tho government
under the stars and stripes
Ho gave his honest opinion to
John Richardson, "when ho
warndd him against joining tho
new annexation party without
consideration or hesitation.
When Mr. Smithj in tho presence
of the. 120 gentlehion
present at tho American
League Hall, talksjdifferently,
ha circumvents facts and he
plays to the gallery.
Mr. Thurston denies that he
ever approached anybody jn
regard to aKaiulanl monarchy.
Ho admits that it was whispered
upon his arrival here
that he was in favor of such a
movement. Now ho has been
hero for several weeks and ho
must know that the American
papers are teeming with references
to his monarchical intentions.
Ho admits that conciliation
is a necessity and ho
dares not repudiato the
sactions against him in tho face
of the. prominept Hawaiian
who sat opposite to. hi nr when
ho delivered his well prepared
address, and who laughed in
his face," Mr. Thurston in
1892, in tho Legislature, stated
that he would go into partner
ship with tho devil, if ho
thought" that ho thereby could
gain his point. Would a man
of the principle indicated by
that utterance hesitate in telk
ing an ordinary, commonplace
lio to tho 120. followers' who tn
the League was able to raise
on that right.
Mr. Hatch joined in ihe
annexation song and he took
tho first nnrfc in bin nbuso of
the planters.' Does anybody
bolievo for a minute that
these three lawyers, each of
whom is in the pay more or less
of sugar barons, reolly mean
what they say when they tell
120 horny-handed sons of toil
that they are their bosses and
that tho planters are offensive,
obuoxious and obstructive ?
- Thurston, South and Hatch
are three very nice follows
when you meet them around
the streets, but when thoy
combine and as n trio try to
throw dust in the eyes of tho.
community they aro not successes
and their career as dinno

Tax in the United States
has been a surprise party to
many people, but at the same
time it has not been an. unpleasant
surprise to the majority.
We realize of course that
the Cleveland administration
will now have' its hands full
and -we equally are aware of
the difficulties of the republic
of Hawaii. If the Independent
can be believed the government
is .running behind every day.
No government can afford to
do without the tax-payers be
ing .ready and willing to back
it up and on the alert to dig
up the necessary wherewiths
and wherefors. . To meet the
times, we have exerted ourselves
and we have found a
"baby" that will beat anything
in its line.. This "baby'' is a
sewing machine and it ranks
with the smartest "babies" in
the world. You can sew anything
on it and do. it just as
well as on a patent steam
foottramping machine. The.
"Baby" goes by hand and it
fills the ticket every time. To
meet the hard times we have
reduced the. price of this infant
"sewer" and we sell it at $h JO
a piece.' Three dollars and
a-half doesn't buy a "baby"
every day and hardly a government
.bond, but our sewing
machine is there for that- small

whistle to you. It 'Is called
the Develine Whistle and a
devil of a whistle it is. It
