JUNE 20, 1803,
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.

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
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.
Social Events of the Past and
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
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.
Makaweli Plantation, June 17.

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.
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
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
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
