' j THE 1AII,Y PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER lie Jaat and fear not; Let all the ends thou alin'st at he Thy Country's, thy God's, and Truth's. TUESDAY, MARCH 31, 1891. The editor of our evening con temporary is evidently sighing for fame among the rodent family. How would this sound? 'The Rat editor of the Bulletin." Kats, like ohickens, often come home to roost. JAPANESE NEWS. We are indebted to the courtesy of the Hon. Paul .Neumann for a file of late Japan Daily Mail. The most important public event is the closing of the first session of the Japanese Legislature. The closing ceremony of the Diet, as it is invariably spoken of, was performed on the 7th of this month in the Imperial Palace. The more moderate papers of all parties seem tolerably satisfied on the whole with the fruits .of this first session. " Journals - that distin guished themselves by unfavorable criticisms of the members of the Diet, now admit that, with all its shortcomings and blunders, the Legislature has acquitted itself in a creditable manner." The organ of the Progressionist party, observes that "due allowance must be made on account of the infancy of the representative system of Govern ment in Japan," and that from Ibis . point of view " the first session of the first Diet in an oriental state x has ended in a manner far more satisfactory than many people would have expected." Among foreigners in Japan the most important event is the death, on the 10th March, of the Hon. John F. Swift, Envoy Extraordin ary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States in Japan, at tho age of 62 years, within a few days. The funeral took placo on the 13th inst. Tho body had been car ried on tho evening before to the American Episcopal Church in Tsukiji, and rested under military escort during the night, the cofiin lying before the chancel covered wiilrKiC-Arrican , ensign, under a mass of wreaths and floral devices. Tho chnrcb, by far the largest of Episcopal churches in Tokyo, could not contain tbc large assemblage gathered to pay tho last tribute of respect to the memory of the de ceased. Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress were represented by the Grand Master of Ceremonies and other great functionaries from the Palace, and several Ladies-in-Waiting. All the Ministers of States were present, but one ab sent through illness, and all the Foreign Representatives, Corps Diplomatique and Consular body and naval officers from Japan ese, American, Italian vessels, riage following contained Admiral British and The car tbc hearse Belknap and Aid de Camp, U. S. N., the 1st and 2nd Secretaries of Legations, and Charge d'Affaires and companies of officers and seamen from each of the national vessels. The Episcopal clergy of the American and English churches, headed by their respect ive Bishops and the Venerable Archdeacon Shaw, with a surpliced choir moved in procession up the cathedral and took their places on either side of the chancel. At tho close of the last hymn tho cofiin was carried to the hearse, which moved off, under a salute of minute guns from the ships, to tho railway terminus where the official cere mony ended. Resolutions of sorrow and sympathy have been adopted at a meeting of citizens of the United States and forwarded to the widow and household of tho deceased Minister. A hideous crime is reported as having been perpetrated in Guzawa, where a Mr. Nakajima, in charge of the local branch of the First Na tional Bank, and his whole family to the number of six were murdered as they lay asleep. Mr. .Nakajima had as usual put the key of the safe into a chest of drawers in a " go down " communicating with the main house. The traces of bloody feet were found from tho sleeping apartments to the " godowo," the drawers had been forced and tho key taken out, but something dis turbed tho murderers, the key was flung into a corner and the safe with 4,000 yen was untouched. Some 70,000 yen, however, were taken from other places, and sonic clothes, etc. The police believe that the capture of the criminals is only a question of time. The position of the present Min istry is stated to be now much stronger than before. It has to make large reductions in expenses and there is talk of some changes in iho personnel. IjlOCUSTS IN AUSTRALIA. Some of the Efforts to Destroy Them. In order to check, if possible, the annual plague of locusts that devour the herbage and blast the hopes of graziers,' farmers and fruit-growers to a greater or less extent in De cumber, tho Victorian Government proclaimed the 7th and 8th of November as holidays for !ho scholars and schoolmasters in the rural districts, in order that they might co-operate with the settlers in destroying the young lousts in tho early stage of their develop ment before they had been equipped with wings, enabling them to take a flight over the country to begin their work of devastation. With this end in view prepara tions were made in numerous parts of tho interior to destroy tho pests in various ways, such as beating with branches the beds in tho fields where the as yet wingless creat ures were known to exist, or har rowing the ground, or turning flocks of sheep upon the land and moving them rapidly about so as tread upon and kill or injure the young brood, and slso by spread ing straw over the plague spots and setting fire to it. Recently the reports came that the creatures massed themselveaso thickly along some of the lines of railways that, although the brakes were shut down, the tram could not be brought to a stand still until they had gone half a mile beyond the stations owing to the multitudes crushed beneath tho wheels, caus ing the trains to pass along as if the rails were covered with oil. The wheels actually slid along the rails. In many of tho northern towns the inhabitants had to close their doors to keep out the invad ing hosts Pall Mall Budget. i Total abstinence dinners are be coming so frequent in London that enough dissatisfaction has been caused to produce the suggestion that invitations to such entertain ments should bo marked with a blue ribbon. During the year 1890 more than one hundred and twenty new com panies connected with electrical engineering wero registered in England, the total capitalization being upward of $65,000,000.

Editor: I beg to take exceptions to your " Explanatory " article of Mon day's issue, in re the Great Register, as being misleading through perversion of certain facts. You eay " Application was made by the Elele to the Gaiette and Press binderies to have the work done for it, but without success." So far as my bindery situate in the Press office is concerned, estimates wero given alike to all bidders applying therefor, three in number, and no obstacle was sought to be put in the Elele'a way because it un derbid the Press Co. in which I was in terested, but on the contrary, matters were under discussion for modifying the time on certain portions of the work. Any " unbusinees-like proposition" to be declined would have come with better grace prior to bidding rather than after the awarding of the job. The remarks relative to the Gazette Co. being " compelled to buy Mr. Base man's bindery," since " nothing would have been more unfortunate for the place than the shipping away of an office and fixtures so much needed here as a bindery " savors rather of the phil anthropic. But it shows either a willful depreciating of a much older established concern, cr an admission ol ignorance as to a competitor's facilities. In this last artie'e, as also in the one of last week, the Press office printing facilities are also intentionally be littled. I am happy to state that, 60 far, it has proved equal to all work en trusted to it, and any delay in the exe cution of the former printing of the Great Register would have been an ex perience to profit by and guard against, as it is expected the Gazette Co. will do. Now, Mr. Editor, there is nothing of "sour grapes" in the foregoing. The Gazette Co. got fairly what they bid for, and f know of none who envy them their job at their figures. Self-laudation may be commendable and advertising one's facilities perfectly legitimate, but I protest against its being done at the ex pense cf injustice to me and my inter ests, as in the published statements re ferred to.

Does it seem discreet to construct a wind-motor cf wood, such weak, perishable ma'erial, when it is de signedly held aloft in the most ex posed position tnd compelled to face every storm? It's mission is to be out in nil weather and endure all exposures. It should, therefore, be made of the most enduring and the strongest materials, and aside from the work ing sails, present the least possible surface to the grap of the tempest. Where lightress is eo important and weight so detrimental as iu a windmill, n is an error to add weight where strength can be more effectu ally gained by using stronger mate rial. The manufacturers of the Aermotor make the sails, bands and arms of the wheels o: 6teel. Other parts requiring strength are made of the same material. The history of one farm machine is the history of all. The huge four horse wooden reaper became the compact two-horse self-rake reaper of greater efficiency. The nnwieldly, wood-frame, four-horse, self-bindii.g harvester that broke of its own weight, has given place to the snug, trim, light-steel, two-horse machine. In each case it is a lighter machine doing more and better work with less power. The great, clumsy, wooden hulk of a windmill, the target of every tempest, suffering more exposure and used more hours of the day than any other farm tool will as surely make way for the smaller, more compact and more efficient steel Aermotor sold by the Hawaiian Hardware Company. Like unto the wife who halves your sorrows and doubles your joyH, a geared Aermotor and its attach ments will do one half more work and cost less than one-half the price of the old style wooden outfit doing less work. Less than one-half the space is used and double the room is left in the barn. The weight is less than half that of wooden outfits con sequently freight charges less than one-half. Like the steamer that sets out on a journey while 6ail boats wait for wind and tide, the Aermotor works while other windmills etandt idle waiting for wind. An expert' me chanic is not required to eet up tliid outfit, anyone can placo it in posi tion. It costs about the price of one horse and will do the work of four. Like interest, it works while you sleep, it neither gets tired or eats oats. o They are sold only by Hawaiian Hardware .Company, Fort street, opposite Spreckels' Bank, Honolulu. 2719 TO HOUSEKEEPERS ?Ask Your Grocer for Starr's Best Roller-made Choice Extra FLOUR !
