Be Just and fear not;

JAN. 12, 1892.
It seems to be settled that John
Phillips, R. Lishman and Jas. F.
Morgan will run as independent
candidates for the road board. In
these days of bad nominations this
candidacy is a genuine consola
tion, and gives the weary and baf
fled voter something to live and
News received from different
sources in Elamakua convey the
assurance that the Hon. Mr.
Rickard is the people's candidate
for Representative in that district.
The Advertiser has not always
agreed with Mr. Rickard on all
questions of public policy, but
his course in the last Legislature
was marked by a straightfor
wardness and probity not to be
mistaken. We sincerely hope that
ho will sacrifice his reluctance
to tho wishes of the voters.
The path of tho hoDest legislator
is indeed thorny, and his task
thankless, bringing no reward save
the sense of duty performed, but
we hope that this subjective reward
will be sufficient to induce Mr.
Rickard again to sacrifice his per
sonal interests to the public wel
fare. THE CITIZENS AGAIN.
The Bulletin has made the won
derful discovery that Saturday the
Advertiser published an article
which was " an appeal to the Re
form party to organize," while
Monday it "virtually admits that
its tacit appeal to its party to or
ganize was unwise."
This supposititious inconsistency
in the Advertiser is a most in
genious pieco of literary criticism.
It reminds one imraedately of the
observation of a German scholar :
" Torture is abolished everywhere
except in exegesis."
Tho Advertiser said Saturday:
"We hear with sincere regret that
the Native Sons of Hawaii intend
to withdraw their Noble ticket."
"Unless another ticket is nomin
ated, the electors will be com
pelled to choose between the so
called Liberals and the set of men
put up by the Mechanics." Mon
day it learns that the Native Sons
have not withdrawn their ticket,
and accordingly commends with
moderation the policy of lending
their nominees a discriminating
Could any two utterances be
more completely in harmony?
Neither Saturday nor Monday,
nor on any other day in the week,
has the Advertiser indulged in
any dogmatic utterances on the
advisability of placing a citizens'
ticket in tho field. We have treat
ed the matter as one of pure expe
diency on which there is much to
be said pro and con. Wo repeat
that it is folly to risk tho election
of the Bush-Wilcox ticket for
the sake of gratifying personal
preferences. The arguments made
have not convinced us that the
nomination of an entirely new
ticket would not be dangerous.
We have not, however, denied the
utility of some action on the part
of independent citizens; on the con
trary, we yesterday recommended
such a course, and desired, and
still desire, simply to make tho
reservation that any citizens' move
ment which does not take into ac
count the danger of throwing vic
tory into the hands of the Bush
element will be likely to defeat its
j ! as
Japanese papers by the Yama
shiro Maru are still largely taken
up with tho recent, earthquakes.
A French resident, writing in the
Japan Daily Herald, reports the
result of a visit to a portion of tho
districts which have suffered.
He says: "No description can
give an idea of the immensity of
the disaster, and I could never
have supposed that forty days after
the catastrophe it was possible to
meet with so much misery and
Of some large districts he esti
mutes seven tenths of tbe houses
have been destroyed; of others not
a single house remains standing,
even in the isolated hamlets. The
rice in many places is rotting in the
fields, for tho unfortunate inhabi
tants running about bewildered are
occupying themselves first of all in
attempting to procure provisions
and the means of rebuilding some
sort of shelter. "Terrified by
the earthquake shocks which
still make themselves felt, and not
having any place in which to store
the sheaves, discouraged, they
leave the harvest to perish before
At Ogaki the fire has completed
the work of destruction, at Gifu
half the town has been burned, Ka
samatsu entirely consumed, and ho
on across a large tract of country
The traveler estimates that with
the sickness resulting from priva
tions, the province of Aichi and
Gifu will be fortunate if before
the end of April, the mortality does
net reach a total of 50,000 persons,
and that there were at the time of
bis visit not less than 600.000 per
sons without shelter.
River banks and embankments
have been rent open or thrown
down and floods are imminent
Finally he says that if shocks sim
ilar to those experienced in tho de
vastated districts wore to be repro
duced in Yokohama or at Tokyo
"the survivors would be fewer in
number than the dead."
THE BAYONET CLAUSE.
According to the New York Tri
buno the sugar clauses of the Mc-
Kinley bill were inserted in order
to "discipline" ungrateful Hawaii
who needed punishment, or at al
events a reminder tnat sue is a
commercial dependency of the
United States, and had no right to
object to the so-called "bayonet
clause" of a proposed treaty.
As to this particular clause which
gave such a handlo to the self
styled patriots, we may say, as we
have said before, that it matters
little wnetner it be inserted in or
omitted from any treaty, for the
fact is that no national ship of tho
United States or of any European
power will suffer its fellow citizens
or their property to be for one
hour at the mercy of such "revolted
tapsters and ostlers, trade-fallen'
with whom Falstaff himself would
have refused to march, and yet who
were led or cajoled by Mr. Wilcox
into marching through the streets o
Honolulu and making war on the
government of the country in 1889
and now the same man threatens
to reproduce the same play.
It is no novelty for the Hawaiian
Government to appeal to foreign
powers to assist in keeping the
peace. At the time of the election o
the late King Kaiakaua, order was
maintained in this city by the join
action of American and British
forces, though there was then, as
now, no foreign element of disturb
ance, bi.t only tho probability of a
faction light in which foreign resi
dents were likely to suffer in per
son or property. During the time
of the whalers, when the harbor o
Honolulu was absolutely crowded
with whale ships, and its streets
with their men, thero was regular
ly stationed here, year after year
three foreign men-of-war: French
American and British, throughou
the season, avowedly to assist in
keeping the peace, as the polico
were totally inadequate to deal
with, maybe, many hundreds of
seamen frequently just in from a
long voyage and with money in
their pockets. Thero was no non
sense about bayonet clauses then,
Mr. Wilcox certainly has his
own experience to illustrate his
position that it is possible to occa
sion the loss of life in broad day
light in a political quarrel and yet
to be not only acquitted by a jury
of his countrymen, but to be raised
from a mere nobody to a person
age of great importance among the
clique of flawaiians who are influ
enced by such oratory as he treats
them to, but he would be wise to
avoid such tall talk as he has al
ready indulged in or he may find
himself, n t m the scat of a Presi
dent, but in his natural obscurity
Representatives and Nobles
Political news with U9 has been
very quiet. It is a little more inter
esting now. "In the hands of his
friends" is a saying as old as politics
itself, and generally used to signify
that the person is an active and ag
gressive candidate for some office.
Hamakua probably has the only true
case of " in the hands of his friends"
on record. Hon. J. K. Kaunamano
and Z. Paakiki, Mr. Wilcox tells us
through your paper, are both good
men. They are candidates in dead
earnest for a seat in the Legislature,
and in fact have been ever since they
were distanced in the race of 189().
But they have been "running" with
out reckoning a great deal on the
?ower behind the throne the people,
'hese same people on divers occasions,
particularly on November 28 in Wai
pio, have requested the Hon. W. H.
Rickard to be the candidate from the
district. On each occasion, and on
that one in particular, he declined to
make the race. Still, not satisfied
with the two candidates above named,
two petitions, one of native and one
of foreigners, were circulated, signed
and sent down to the Minister of the
Interior, as required by law; which
action will place the name of Hon.
W. H. Rickard on the ticket, and
elect him beyond any doubt, thongh
he has not said he would accept the
office after being forcibly elected to it.
There are some things very remark
able about this move on the part of
the electors, viz: Mr. Rickard has
been one session in the House, which
usually makes it very difficult for a
man to succeed himself, even when
he very much desires to do so; and it
is interesting to observe the almost
unanimous and vigorous following
among natives, as against two good
men of their own race.
Hon. J. Marsden will have no oppo
sition as a noble, so that the race for
that position will possess no interest
or excitement to sneak of.
Candidates mentioned for members
of the Road Board arc Henry Hall, of
Kukuihaele; J. Waiohinu, of Faauiio;
and R. T. Rickard and A. Moore, of

The first month in the new
year ; the month which every
one told us would be the
" Black Friday " of the mer
chants' existence has begun
and the result of the week's
sales is imfinitely more satis
factory to us than during the
same period last year. This
"look out for hard times " cry
is nonsense, it may mt some
dealers but we've not felt it
It is an acknowledged fact
that mud or sand dragged into
a room on the soles of your
shoes and then ground into the
warp of your best and poorest
carpets will do more damage
in one application than all the
moths in Christnedom will in
a month. Have you tried a
Hartmann Steel Wire Mat ?
This is not the hard, stiff mat
which has often been sold as a
Hartmann and as often thrown
aside as worthless. The Hart
mann Mat is flexible, is easily
cleaned and statisticians say
they last twenty years longer
than any other mat. There's
no necessity for a cocoa mat
where the Hartmann is used.
Speaking of steal mats, are
you not about ready for a
Fischer Steel Range ? They
are rushing into popularity as
rapidly as any thing we have
ever sold and never a bad re
port of the conduct of one of
! !! hold on ; we did have
one report that was not quite
satisfactory to us. The good
house wife told us she could'nt
make the range work and she
did'nt want it. It was a puz
zle to us because it was the
firot om. that li&vl lill UlUVCil
" the best thing that the pur
chaser had in the house." We
sent up one of our men with
instructions to build a fire in
the range and find out where
the trouble was, and he found
it. There was a clog in the
pipe just above the roof and
when it was taken out the
flues drew so hard that the
workman had to put weights
on the kitchen furniture to
keep the pieces from going up
the chimney. The good house
wife has withdrawn her com
plaints and pronounces the
range the most satisfactory
piece of furniture she has in
the house. If this complaint
has been considered a blot on
the escutcheon of the Fischer
Steel Range it has been wiped
out and the record is as clean
as a new pin.
We know, from actual ex
perience, that you can cook a
meal in less than half the time
that you can with the ordinary
stove or range ; we know that
they burn just one-half the
fuel burned by any other stove
of the same size. We don't
tell you this because the man
ufacturer tells us so, but be
cause we have been using a
Fischer Range for five years
and have found it to be just
what we represent it.
Considering the fact that
they will out last three of the
average iron tstoves they are
the cheapest stoves in the mar
ket. Begin the year by using
