TUG HAWAIIAN QUESTION ST I LI, OPEN, OFFICIAL BJLRECTUIiY 2Ccu) tficcrtiscmcnts. 0?iierat LiDcriisntunts (Drncrol Dccrtiscmcuts. Central CUircrtisnnrnts. Commirsloner Blou-it has been made Minister to Hawaii, Mr. Stevens having insisted upon the acceptance of his resignation. It is fortunate that Mr. Blount's anomalous position in the Sand wich Islands has thu3 been re duced to tangibility. He had been gent on a purely private errand by the President, and it was question able whether he was exercising his functions constitutionally. Now, he has a recognized and legal status. Not a single clue has been given as yet to the attitude of the Cleveland administration towards Hawaii's request to be brought within the jurisdiction of the Uni ted Slates. Meanwhile the oppo nents of annexation have been working desperately to create an adverse public opinion. We have only one further word to add at this time to our former discussions of the subject : If the United States shall definitely refuse to accede to Hawaii's request, this country must not stand in the way of Ha waii's pursuing any further course that she may choose. Let us play no disgraceful dog-in-the-manger part. England, at least, appreci ates the incomparable advantage of Hawaii as a point of call be tween Vancouver and Australia, and while England realizes the priority of the natural claims of the United States and is willing that this country should ob tain the islands, she will not feel herself compelled, in case of our refusal, to turn a deaf ear to the overtures that will doubtless be made to her by Hawaii. England will be perfectly justified in accept ing Hawaii's proposal, and she will proceed at once to fortify the isl ands as impregnably as Bermuda, Malta and Gibraltar. It is hard for a person of some information and some sense of national duty and honor, to read most of the news paper arguments against annexa tion without wrath and disgust. Mr. Blount's report will be awaited with extreme solicitude. Mean while, Mr. Lorrin A. Thurston, a very prominent and highly estim able citizen of Hawaii, has been appointed to relieve Dr. Mott Smith, as Hawaiian minister at Washington. Review of Reviews. The Extra Session. Extra session rumor, which has been in tho air ever since the elec tion of Mr. Cleveland to the presi dency, is again afloat. It is now reported that an extra session will be called at a date earlier than that suggested in the reports touching the subject which were given cur rency a few weeks ago. At first October wa3 suggested, then Sep tember was said to have been fixed upon, and now a rumor has it that congress will be convened in extra session as early as the first week in August. What basis there is for the rumor will doubtless appear in good time. The appearance of these rumors, at any rate, seems to indi cate that the administration is contemplating an extra session, and at as early a date as practic able, though no date may yet have been fixed upon. There seems to be no doubt as to the main ques tion to be laid before congress for consideration when it convenes. Doubtless the tariff question will receive attention, but the matter which presses for most immediate consideration is the currency ques tion, and there seems to be no doubt in the minds of those who have given thought to the matter that the president will make a strong effort to secure the repeal of the Sherman silver law. Brad streets. The Local Newspaper. Senator Plumb is quoted as hav ing said "I believe in the local newspapers. They are the leaders, the makers of public sentiment. They are nearer to the people than any other papers. The editors mingle with the people, and con sciously or unconsciously reflect the views of their readers. By my own private letters from all "parts of the state and by reading the local papers I can tell just what the people of Kansas are talking and thinking about. I can feel the pulse of the people and take their temperature. I am amazed, too, at the excellence of our country papers. The majority of them are carefully, ably edited. They not only print the news of the neigh borhood, but have opinions which I find it worth my while to read and reflect upon. I get no better return for any of the money which I spend than for that which I pay out for the local newspapers of my state." The Newspaperman. This ia Quick Work. Thirty-five fire engine companies held a quick-hitchincr contest in San Francisco recentlv. A driver. with two horses under the harness, booked up, mounted the seat and pulled clear in six seconds. He then went to bed, turned out dressed, ran downstairs, hitched, climbed in his seat, pulled clear. and rolled 4G feet 10 inches in 25J seconcl3. With horses in their stalls he hitched, was in his seat and clear in 132 seconds: Ex. Artistic printing at the Gazette Office. Provisional Government of the Hawaiian Islands. Executive Council. B.

But it's the same old typewriter, same ribbon, same scales, sumo rickety print. We want something modern, and we get it in the New Yost, which rises superior to the difficulties of any ribbon machine. The ribbon blurs print, wears full of holes, clogs type, takes power to pull It along, weakens manifolding and costs $S or $10 a year. Our ink pad outlasts twenty ribbons. Can be changed in ten seconds, and costs less than $2 a year. And as to permanent alignment the Yost Is the only machine which accom plishes this much desired feat.
