For the information of "Clan Boston" and anyone else who may feel an inter est in the matter, we will state that our correspondent "X.," so far from being a missionary, is not even a member of any church, and is not related by blood or marriage to anyone, missionary or otherwise, in the country. An important ingredient of many paints is ochre. Every grain we use is imported and we pay anywhere from five to ten cents a pound for it. Yet in our own volcanic soil we possess as great a yariety of ochres as can bo found any where. The process of cleaning, grind ing and preparing them for use is so simple that it might almost be said that a man with ten dollars in his pocket and a little energy is completely equipped for it. People traveling about the country cannot fail to notice the brilliant color ing of much of the soil. Red is perhaps predominant, but there are yellow, pur ple, grey, blue and others. A gentleman of practical experience visiting the Is lands last spring expressed great sur prise that nothing has ever been done to demonstrate the practical use of these earths. Pigments have been made to some small extent for personal use but nothing comprehensive. A shovelful of any of these soils thrown into water and stirred will show what a valuable material it is. Allowed to settle and then stirred again, the sand and grit all falls to the bottom, the murky water then drawn olf soon becomes clear and the ochre is found as a sediment at the bottom. This requires to be dried and then ground and it is converted into the almost impalpable powder of the paint shop. Let someone of our enterprising painters take hold of this and he will Id materially to his profits without tax ing the public a new price for his beauti ful paints. "With Americans particularly interest deepens with the arrival of each mail from the Coast, as the Presidential elec tion draws near. There have not been such elements of intense interest in the present canvass as in many before. No great question which touches the life of the nation is before the country. The issue is upon the tarilF and that is after all one of financial regulation. The question is not either how to make up a deficiency, how to pay debts, how to create revenue to get along without debt. It is, how to make such amendments in the revenue system as to get rid of an immense surplus. Under such circum stances it can hardly bo expected that there should be the intense but silent in terest on the part ot the bulk of the voters which attends an election such as the country has witnessed in the past. - The IlDublicans point proudly to their record of the past twenty-five years and it is a splendid one. They carried the na tion through the civil war and after years of struggle left it splendid, rich, imperial, full of vitality and with an overflowing treasury. Well may the party be proud of such a record. But parties cannot live on records any more than people can, and the country ex pressed its dissatisfaction because the jparty showed signs of having outlived its, usefulness, of corruption, of the arrc-. ,T:ince and opulence of brilliant success It began to look as though it were no lonr the party of progress, and it was punished by defeat. The Democratic party, on the other hand, has had the dis cipline of constant defeat and humiliation for a long period of over twenty years and is just about closing its first period on probation. It has been for a long time, as some of our Democratic friends appreciate, the case of the monkey and parrot. They have been plucked, with out mercy for a long period, and if the chastening process has been of any value they ought to do well. In some respects the coming election will be a test as to whether the people think they have done well and deserve a further lease of power. The fact is, that after all the old names are no longer descriptive. The parties are no longer Republican and Democratic. The issues which kept them alive on which the war was fought on which reconstruction took place, are all dead. The people of the United States know it and feel it, and the ques tion on which the coming election will turn is not Democratic or Republican, but, free trade or protection. Out here, we are somewhat interested in the result, and it must be confessed that our interests lie rather with the election of Cleveland than of Harrison. If the former is returned again, the sugar tariff will not be very much disturbed probably. If the latter should become President, a heavy reduction in duties is likely, perhaps the abolition altogether. With Cleveland also we have much more to expect in the line of tariff on wool, which we produce. On the whole it looks as if we ought to vote for Cleve land, and in the face of our interests we all know that our politics incline to where our pockets are heaviest. This is humiliating, but it is true and we might as well admit it. BUMPS AND JINKS. They Hold Talaver Over the Special Election" The Ante-Platform Chi nese.' SUPREME COURT OCTOBER TERM. MR.

Oaliu College Examinations. The first monthly written examina tions of Oahu College were held at that institution last Friday by the respective teachers. Yesterday afternoon the re ports were all returned to the students, and President W. C. Mcrritt, in present ing them, commended the students for the great success of the examinations. All the fifty boys and girls passed above the required standard, and the highest general average was 95 per cent. Last year no less than ten students failed to reach that standard ; but this year the result is entirely different, and the teachers hope that the next monthly ex amination will be marked by still more improvement on the part of the students. A Bootless Arrest. Early last evening a Chinaman was hustled into the Station on information that he had been stealing something from a lodging house. His protestations as of innocence were not credited, so down the gangway he was rushed. A couple of hours later an offiVpr. on hinw asked why there was no entry of the af- rest on me dook, replied that the China man had been let out for want, of anv. thing on which to detain him. His ac- cuser was oi nis own nation, and about fifty of his countrvmen had followed him to the Station, After the former experiences the re porter kept a look out for his two friends, and only a day or two after the interview on the wharf he found them at Thomas Square waiting for the band. They greeted each other and finding a comfort able bench settled themselves and con versation began. " I sav. Bumps," says Jinks, "what was that last 'lection they had in August, for? I thought you told me the other day that they 'lected the hull gang last year, and besides, that measly paper I was telling vou about onlv told about two fellers running an' one bein' 'lected." "Oh, I tell you how that was, Jinks You see the legislature lost one of their mess an' it was a great loss too an' a man had to be 'lected to fill his place. So a lot of covies was chosen as deligates an' thev come together in that same place where the legislatur' an' the Court meets, an' they had quite a spree, lhe two men who was runnin' was Wilder and Schmidt. Thev was both good men, our 'steemed feller citizens as they was called, an' both was possessed uv sub stantial bodies, an' considerable human natur'. Neither uv them was addicted to politics, an' at first neither of them seemed to care much about it. But after they began to think it over an' the papers told what great men they was, an' each found out the other was runnin', they began ter think if it wasn't their duty to sacrifice their selves. Schmidt seemed ter be the first ter have a realizing sense of his duty, an' when Wilder an' his lriends found that out, it seemed to settle the matter all ter once, an' Wilder concluded ter sacrifice his self too. It was hard to tell which did sacrifice most. For it was mighty inconvenient for Wilder ter leave his biziness, an' Schmidt had some beautiful c!o'e3 he used ter wear on big occasions. If Wilder was 'lected he'd have ter leave his biziniss, an' if Schmidt was 'lected he'd have ter leave his clo'es. I tell you Schmidt did look handsome in them clo'es, an' he had a royal step, an' you'd think him an' sum King was twins. But Wilder was an old dimicrat, an' he smelled powder, an' he says ' by Gineral Jackson an' all the imps uv free trade I don't want ter, but I got ter.' An' Schmidt says donnerwetter, somebody hold me, or the cork'll blow out an' I'll spatter all over.' As usual the victims was wonderful porlite ter each other all along 'till the convention met. An' they was each filled with anxious thoughts about the condition uv the country; an' how they never could have consent d ter run had it not been for the great ' crisis in the 'fairs uv the nation ;' an' there wasn't no body else fit ter run ; an' they wondered they'd never 'predated before what a dignity it was to be a Noble, an' as they thought it over they was sur prised ter find how unsuited the other w7as for the office. Schmidt walked about soft an' quiet like, an' increased more an' more ; an' Wilder spent con siderbul time leaning up agin the house on the sidewalk, with his hat over his eyes, twisting his watch chain an' list' ning to fellers on the 'inside' who 'didn't want ter interfere,' but ' jess tho't they'd mention it, you knowT.' " " But I say, Bumps," said Jinks, what lay does a Noble get mus' be something pretty good? " " Oh, Jinks, you is green. There is'nt no pay at all, an' it costs a good deal be sides. It's for the honor, Jinks the glory. Now hold on, don't interrupt. When you cum ter think how it would sound ter be called Honerbul Mr. Jinks,' an' in vrittin' home mention it, incidental like, that your ' duties in the House of Lords occupied so much uv yer time you must be brief;' and then after the exhaustion of the session hev ter take a vacation an' travel. There's lots uv things in this life that's not what they is, but what we thinks they is. "Wall, as I was about ter say, the evening came. The sacrffices, afore they left home, told their wives they didn't care two pins about it, an' they hoped they wouldn't git 'lected. But somehow they wasn't hungry much at dinner, an' was cross, an' put on their best clo'es an' slicked their hair, an' was an hour too early for the show ; an' as they set modest-like in back seats they hitched about an' acted like young gals at their furst party. " When the crowd was all in, a kinder presbyterian lookin' doctor called 'em ter order, an' they 'lected a chairman, an' committees an' things an' backed an' filled a good deal, as they alwus does before they gits off. " The chairman made some remarks about keepin' steady an' mindin' their helms an' they d all get 'lected ; an' a committee reported they had examined the articles an' found the delegates all regularly shipped, an' then they went ter work. " A committee on revolutions reported somethin' that jingled pretty well but didn't mean nothin', an' then one feller sed he that tho't 'lepers an' Chinese was too prevalent.' An' that pretty feller, what has a billiard room down town, jumps up an' says, 'yes, we must put a plank in the Chinese,' an' the crowd hollered an' scraped their feet. An' another feller moved that thev 'insert a Chinese in their ante-platform,' an' the crowd hollered lowder still. An' then made the committee go back an' bring in another revolution. When thev came back an' read it there was such screechin' I could only hear part of it, but there was somethin' about 'definite an' comprehensive Chinese restnptintr this country,' an' 'immigrating iniustice'. an' sech like. After thev got tired shout ing one feller got up an' nominated Mr. Schmidt, an' another nominated Mr. Wilder an' evervbodv hollered lowder each time. " An' then the candidates was called upon to spread theirselves. Wilder he got up an' spoke, but all I could hear between the holierin' was somethin' like this, 'he hadn't thot uv runnin' until the idea had occurred to him: an' that if any man deserted his party he hoped he'd sink so deep they'd have ter cut the line; an' that if he wasn't nomin ated he'd vote for Schmidt, but he'd be blowed if he would under any ether circumstances; that he wasn't 'cus tomed ter public speakin', but he had the best Nor'westr lumber in town at twenty-six dollars a thousand, but as I'm tellin' you may be I didn't get it iess right. Then you orter beared them howl. "When they eased up a little Schmidt he waltzes up, an' lets out. But it's no use fer me to try ter tell it jess as he sed it. - Near as I could recollect it was like th&4 He sed he fully approved uv Mr, Wilder's sentiments about sinking to the bottom of the sea, an' hoped to start soon : that thev all knew how distasteful it was ter him to occuoie anv high posi tion, but his friends wanted him ter te elevated, an' he jess loved the party so that he couldn't hold in. He said ne didn't believe in those machine guns, hut would rather trust an old fashioned hnrnoon : that he stude there aloi readv ter let drive as soon as she came nn ter blow again : as fer the Chinese, his sentiments was well known (half fash, balance sixty days, one per cent.) ; that no bank owned him, an' he owned no missionaries, that he was pure five- star-take-it-straight. " Bv that time the gale blew every thing out of the bolt ropes; an' Schmidt came to anchor. " Then Wilder got up agin, an' sed he wasn't 'ware that the crew had expected speeches about ante-platform Chinese, but he wished it distinctly understood that he'd like ter furnish the lumber fer the platform. An' thev hollered agin. "Then the tellers collected the ballots, an' began to count 'em, an' it was an awful close race: they went neck an' neck, hip an' thigh, an' it looked for a spell as though they'd hev ter try it over ain. But on the homestretch Wilder took a puff jess a little afore they reached the stake boat an' rounded it three sec onds ahead of Schmidt." "Well that was purtv close, Bumps. suppose these things is the same here as ter home. Do you know, Bumps, it seems to me as though politics an' liquor mus' grow on the same tree there's nothing makes people lie more, an' make fools of their selves more, than them two things." " That's so, Jinks, but human natur's human natur'. " Bv the wav, Jinks, did you see the Bulletin Thursday evenin' ? Your shot must have crossed his bow, for he hove to an' tried to beg off." " Yes, I did, Bumps. He was hurt. The iron went home, an' he spouted blood an' keeled over. But the varmint makes me mad ; he compares hi.-self to the Samaritan ! Ef the Samaritan was like him. I'd rather be the thieves. But let's talk about something else, or I'll get sick an' heave up." "All right, Jinks, I've got more to tell yer. Now there's the doctors in this yer town, they's the" . Just then the band began to play and the conversation ended. Dividend Notice.

For quick raising, the Roj-al Baking Powder is superior to all other leavening agents. It is ab solutely pure and wholesome and of the highest leavening power. It is always uniform in strength and quality and never fails to make light, sweet, most palatable and nutritive food. Bread, biscuits, muffins, cake, etc., raised with Royal Baking Powder may be eaten hot without distressing results to the most delicate digestive organs. It will keep in any climate without deterioration. Prof. H. A. Mott, U. S. Government Chemist, after examining officially the principal baking powders of the coutatry, reported: "The Roval Baking Powder is absolutely pure, for I have so found it in many tests made both for that company and the United States Govern ment. "Because of the facilities that company have for obtaining perfectly pure cream of tartar, and for other reasons dependent upon the proper proportions of the same, and the nietbod of its preparation, the Royal Baking Powder is un doubtedly the purest and most reliable baking powder offered to the public.
