JUNE 20, 1803, THE FINANCIAL STATEMENT, The weekly financial statement presented by Minister Damon to I the council yesterday was not a. surprise to his friends, and will certainly not be to the public, who will have read his previous reports The showing which the government is making on each succeeding occa sion becomes an earnest for further improvements ; and thus far there has been no disappointment or ex ception. The argument and figures used by the minister of finance are con clusive, and show that the United States would not have to make up a deficit or assume a national debt for which there would be no pro vision in case of annexation. Not only this, but in case of annexation the revenues for the liquidation of the debt, at -the end of twenty years, amounting to $0,419,200 would be greatly increased over the minister's estimate. Under annexation the present duties would be doubled and in most cases tripled. The amount of im ported goods, other than American, upon which duties would bo col lected, would also largely increase, while the expense of collections would vary but little from the present rate. The average for the past five years of $320,960 per year, as pointed out by the minister of finance, seems to be a fair and rea sonable one. At any rate it is not at all likely it will decrease in case of either annexation or a protector ate, as may be granted us in the near future. But with any stable form of government established in Ila waii, under the direction or with the consent of the United States, it is not at all improbable that new sources of revenue would rapidly develop, which would throw the surplus of $731,700 mentioned by Minister Damon into the millions. This is not mere speculation. Wherever the influence and busi ness thrift of the United States make themselves felt, the golden harvest of success is sure to follow. The prosperity which followed the reciprocity treaty can easily be revived and repeated here with no other financial magic than the busi ness methods and public credit which an alliance with the great republic will insure. Annexation, of course, will be the chief factor of future success. It is not to be understood, however, that Hawaii cannot exist without annexation. That this can be done by economy and frugality has already been am ply proved by the example set the public by the Provisional govern ment since it came into power a little over five months ago. It is not saying more than truth allows to assert that by the applica tion of strict business methods and governmental economy the present administration has snatched Hawaii from the crumbling verge of national bankruptcy, and has, for the first time in a decade, made financial ends meet. It is the knowledge of this indisputable fact which has made any compromise or hint of return to the old order of things an utter impossibility. None appreciate this truth more than the supporters of the monarchy. Had royalty followed the methods and policy now being pursued by the Provisional government, the mon archy would have numerous friends instead of a host of enemies. Tourists and others visiting Hilo can find the Daily Advertiser and Hawaiian Gazette (weekly) on sale at the store of J. A. Mar tin, Waianuenue street. S. -in-3 4 10 :i i7 J8 f I PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT A Citir.".n Who Declares It Has Been a Success. Mr. Editor: You can hardh realize ti.e hopeful and encour aging outlook the Advertiser brought U3 by last mail. I don't nean the prospective rise in the price of sugar by the reimposition of tariffs in America, nor the cloud hanging over annexation just now, but the confirming of our faith in the superiority of our present gov ernment over the one it has dis placed."'" In- its'work of economy, its wise course, its uprightness and its able and just men new at the head of affairs all arc encour aging. This is the first time since the revolution that I have attempted to congratulate the people of these lsl and3 for the wise and efficient Pro visional government they have placed over our heretofore turbu lent governmental affairs, although I have seconded every move. Our cabinet certainly are all that could be desired. No further change will improve its efficiency or honesty, and it is hoped none will be made or attempted. I can hardly see how it was possi ble to so economize in the adminis tration of government affairs to bring the monthly government ex pense within its current income so soon, yet such is an announced fact, notwithstanding a small army or government guard have to be provided for. The moving of government head quarters into the old palace is another act to be commended, as the palace was built by the tax payers for the use of the head of the government and it seems per fectly proper to use it as govern ment headquarters. It will be wanted as our territorial head quarters after annexation a3 well as before. Another thing that rejoiced us much was the disposition and abil ity of the government to change its $95,000 debt from the hand of its enemy'to that of its friends, and at short notice, and also paying the interest on its foreign debt so promptly. Both of these last feats were looked upon by its enemies as at least embarrassing to the gov ernment, if not, as they hoped, be yond its ability. These facts, and others of a like nature, encourage us to believe we will have an efficient, stable and economical government here until annexation becomes a fact, even should it take four or more years to accomplish. Hamakua. MAKAWELI PLANTATIONS, Social Events of the Past and Faiuare. Monday the 12th of June being recognized as a general holiday, work in the mill was suspended for the day. The residents of the plantation were not behind in avail ing themselves of this opportunity of a day's outing. Through the kindness of Mrs. H. P. Baldwin, a picnic was arranged to the IJana- pepe falls, which proved to be a success in every way. The party left the plantation gates at 8 a. m., picking up the Hanapepo contingent on the way. It was a pleasant spectacle to see those twenty happy faces, on this delightful morning. "Bailie" cot tage was reached about 11 a. m. here Mrs. Baldwin and Mrs. Pal mer stayed behind to prepare lunch for the remainder of the party, who were eager to visit and view nature's wonderful works in the falls of " Minehaha," the source of the Makaweli plantation water supply. After spending a very happr hour or so here, the return journey was begun, reaching " Bailie " cottage by 2 p.m., where a sump tuous lunch was ready for the holiday-makers. Judging from the amount of lunch consumed by the party and especially by one of the gen tlemen present there is no better appetizer than a ride up Hanapepe valley. In visiting Minehaha, the river has to be crossed twenty-one times each way, and fortunately .was very low, there not having been much rain of late. ' After passing all the dangers of the mountain trail, and while on the homeward journey, one of the young ladies met with a slight mis hap, being thrown from her mount, but fortunately it proved of no serious consequence. A pleasant surprise party is in anticipation, to be given to Dr. and Mrs. Campbell, of Waimea, on Saturday evening, 17th instant, they being about to leave for a well earned vacation in " bonnie Scot land." Dr. Campbell's substitute is at present on his way from Eng land, and is expected soon. Slocum. Makaweli Plantation, June 17. Presented With a Cap. Mr. R. D. Walbridge has been presented by the Maui Racing As sociation with a solid silver cup as a token of esteem. On account of departure Mr. Walbridge had to de cline a re election as president of the association, a position he has filled for the past six years. L 1H A ISA FOLIC Enjoy Themslves With Races at Algaroba Park. The most eigojablt day that La bait: people have had for many years pat was Monda3 June 12th. Oa that day a tries of horse races took place at Algeroba park, and were witnessed by nearly five hun dred people. These races, open only to Lahaina horse3 of no special note, nevertheless caused a3 much en thusiasm and excitement as do those trials of speed between world re nowned celebrities of the track. Through the kindness of Mr. C. F. Horner, manager of the Pioneer mill, many who were unable to ob tain conveyances, were transported to the groncJ3 by the steam cars be longing to the mill. The grounds were gaily decorated, the Lahaina brass band discoursed sweet music, the weather was clear and pleasant, and the track was in the finest pobsi ble condition. Promptly at 10 o'clock a. m. the horses for tbo lirst race Appeared upon the track. It wa3 the pony race, one half mile dash, with eight entries. Tbo judges for the day were Messrs. C. F. Horner, F. II. 'Haysel den and Wm. White; the starter was Mr. llobt. Balleutine. Thi3 was prob ably the most closely contested race of the day, the ponies remaining banched together the entire heat. Tbo race was eventually won by Mikado, owned by John Correira and ridden by Mahoe; time, 1:01. There were five entries in the next race, trotting to harness, one mile heats, Lest two in three. The first heat was won by Guillermo, owned and driven by Dr. Davison; second and third heats by Lahaina Maid, driven by John Joiner. Best time in this race 3:49, made by Lahaina Maid, second heat. Running race, one half mile and repeat, was next on the programme. The outcome of this was a disagree able surprise to the knowing ones, tbe favorite being Mr. W.L. Decoto's Mr.zeppa, which won the first beat in but lost tbe Dext two and the race to Mr. A. Adams' Rose. Mule race, one half mile dash. As usual this proved both interesting a-jd amusing. It was hotly contested, a'l the mules, four in number, getting avay together and all holding well. The race wan won by Henry Smith's Pioneer, R II. Makekm beiDg a close second on Jacky; time, 1:10. A ruDniDg race, one mile dash, came next, aud was the best ridden race of the day. All the riders were experienced men, and tne horses very evenly matched. Tbo winner was Kuamu on Mr. R. P. Hose's Stran ger; second came Mr. Chas. Buch- anan on ivauanamu, one nan a length behind. Time, 2:07. Probably in the history of human events never such excitement, en thusiasm and interest was aroused in 500 throbbing hearts as when Capt. Davia Taylor, behind his speedy roadster Jim Crow, drove down the quarter stretch, followed by Labai- nas genial postmaster, Mr. t. U. Forsyth, owner and driver of BostoD, and Mr. George Horner behind his pet horse Taraoke. It was the gen tlemen's special trotting race for named horses, mile heats, best two in three. SoOn the bell rang, the band ceased playing 'Pna-Melle- kule," and the racers were off. Owing to the pardonable nervousness of the drivers, a few fouls took place at intervals along the first mile, but, with consummate skill, Mr. Horner managed to land Taraoke under the wire in 5 07, by judicious use of the whip ; Boston a good second, and Jim Crow a beautiful third. The next heat was even more prolific in fouls, but the sulky wheels were true to their trust, and again Taraoke was victor in 4.52, taking the race. Iho last regular race was a run ning race, one half mile dash, for hore3 that did not win during the day. But two appeared upon the track Kannaulu (ridden by Charles Buchanan) and Pua Loke, owned by Ho Su. The first named won easily in LOG. A pa u race next took place be tween a number of ambitious Ha waiian ladies, with the result that most of them were thrown off at in tervals upon the track. Fortunately no serious damage was done except to clothing, and the day ended most happily. m KA ME II A ME HA DAY ON HA WAII. Lawn, Tennis Tournament, dames, etc. Mr. Editor : The holiday of June 11 was kept in grand style in Hama kua ou the 10th. Tbo great event of he day was the lawn tennis tourna ment at Kukaiau. The residence and beautiful grounds of J. M. Horner, Esq , were, as usual, the scene of these festivities, and a large com pany of people assembled to witness ho games. Tho games commenced about 12 o'clock, and were continued until 2 p.m., when lunch was served, after which commenced the great event of tho day a series of, games between two of the best teams from Kohala and two of tbe best teams from Ha makua. The following named gen tlemen composed the Kobala teams : Messrs. G. C. Kempster, H. P. Kemp ster, H. Mist and Wight Atkins ; and from Hamakua, Messrs. L. Madden, G. E. Bryaut, C. H. B. Fowler and E. Horner. As these contestants were well matched aud good players, we witnessed one of tbe most interesting: and exciting games ever seen here. Daring tbe games there were fre quently exhibited such superior hits and play as to call forth tho applause of tbe delighted spectators. I should like to describe these games in detail, but ppace will not permit, and I only add that, although the Hamakua boy3 did some bril liant playing and took the lead at the start, yet the Kohala beys were one too many for them, acd came iu victors at the end, carrying elf the boners of the day. Mcst of the com pany were giad to see this victory for the Kohala boys, because tbey had displayed such grit and endurance in their travels in getting here. They started from Kohala Friday eveniLg after work hours, and expected to arrive at Kukaiau Saturday morning early; but instead, they got lost in the dark on the Waimea plains, got drenched with rain, and for three hours tried to find some shelter under the rocks while the native was seek ing the trail. They finally got started again on the right trail and arrived here on Saturday afternoon. Mr. James Benton received them, and, after the game, entertained them in grand style. We understand they started for home on Sunday at 12 o'clock and arrived there at 12 p.jt, so ali went to work Monday morning none the worse for their strange and varied experiences. Among the visitors we noticed Miss Catherine Horner and Miss Winter from Knkuihaele, Miss May Alexander of Kohala, Miss Margaret Lidgate of Laupahoehoe, Miss Mar garet Greenfield and Mr. Armstrong Smith of Honokas, and Mr. Cyril Smith of Kukuihaele.

Have you felt, recently, that you would iike to add a piece of exquisitely cut glassware to your stock of table ware ? There's no reason why you should not gratify the desire if it exists. Ino other store in Honolulu kcp-s such a hand some and varied stock as we have and the prices are quite as low as you would find in any of the New York shops. We might mention Rock wood pottery in the list of things desired by peo ple of refined taste. The coloring of this ware has fre quently been mentioned in the Art Journals as being superior to anything of the kind manu factured in the United States. One piece of it will add much to the appearance of your cabinet. We have added to our stock of glassware a large quantity of fine engraved glasses which we can sell you at very low prices; you would consider them cheap at double the money. One pattern goes to you at $1.50 a dozen engraved as well as any you pay $2.50 for in other shops. The Gre cian pattern, higher in price, because there is more engrav ing to them, but the glass is no finer in quality than the others, either of them comes under the head of pure crystal. You've looked around per haps, with the idea of buying a lamp ! have you found any to suit you better than ours and for more money than wre ask you ? In banquets, our styles are the newest; in piano lamps, none have been design ed since our last lot was imported; in Hall's lamps with colored glass or plain white, our stock is up to date; pre eminently the head.
