THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, JANUAEY 8, 1894. IN PARALLEL COLUMNS. The Malice and Prejudice of the "Nation" Exposed. Mr. Editor: The New York Nation, the Evening Post's weekly issue, can not epeak with calmness on the Hawaiian question. Years ago it was regarded as fair and ju dicial in tone, but it has rapidly lost that trait, and if its utterances on our matters are a test of its gen eral truthfulness, it can no longer be worthy of credence in any thing. For years it has been filled with hatred and bitterness toward the Republican party, and particularly to everything pertaining to the Harrison administration, while at the same time it has worshipped Cleveland as a personality. Per haps this accounts for its opposite positions on the principles of liber ty and right involved in the cases of the Hawaiian, Chilian and Bra zilian struggles below referred to. I give the quotations direct from the Nation : Chile and Brazil. On Hawaii. (Nation, Feb. 16, 1893). In the absence of telegraphic com munication, even the facts of the revolution in Hon olulu can hardly be ascertained, within that period (balance of Harri son's term). There are two stories be fore him.one that of the Hawaiian, Government, with -which we have a treaty of com merce and amity, which that Gov ernment has not broken and which has still 2 years to run. The other is that of certain for eign residents who have overturned zhls Government by force of arms, on the ground, as vaell as we can make out, that the sovereign had en tered on a policy of "heathen and sor cerous reaction." These two stories! are ' In many res pects contradic tory, and each side has plenty of mo tives, as in all such controver sies, for pervert ing, coloring and misstating. It (the trea ty) contains no provisions against heathenish or sor cerous practices, or against debau chery or immoral ity on the part of the queen in her palace or other public building; and yet it is these practices and im moralities which are put forth by the revolutionists as an excuse for overturning the Government, and proposing the ab solute conquest of the islands by the United States. (Nation, Mar. 23, 1S93). It was to have been expected that a more satisfactory solution of the Hawaiian trouble would be arrived at under a Demo cratic President than under a Re publican Adminis tration. (Nation, Nov. 16, 1S02), Referring to Ste- ven-vsays: It was cers of the army, his revolution that (and are not overthrew the Ha-1 brought iuto close waiian queen, his contact with the Provisional Gov- executive. ernment was set Our Govern up, hi3 scheme oliment. iu dealing annexation mat (Nation, Nov. 16, 1893). Without any de sire to see the Pre sident take hastily any new position regarding the con flict now raging in Brazil, we think one point in parti cular should be urged on his con sideration and it is a point of con siderable import ance for a Govern ment like ours. That is, that in all States like those of South America, or like France, or Italy, or Germany, in which the pre sident or sovereign is also the head of a concentrated armed force, in case of disputes be tween the execu tive and the legis lature the pre sumptions are against the execu tive. (Refering to Peix oto) and he has committed a great many violent and unconstitut i o n a 1 acts. Moreover, there does not seem to be any way out of the dif ficulty through a popular vote. But no matter how the fortune of war may go, by standers must not forget that in semi-barbarous or military States which are striving for constitutional repre sentative Government, the man in command of the troops is naturally suspect ed. If trouble arises, he is in nine cases out of ten at the bottom of it. This ac counts in some de gree for the curi ous revolt of the navy under some what the same cir cumstances both In Chili and Bra zil. The case against Peixoto is not as strong as the case against Balmaceda, but there is a case against him, and those who believe in it, being unable to make a stand against the army in the capital, take to the sea. The officers of the navy are probably bet ter educated and come from a better class than the offi- struggling towards with disputes of this kind in coun tries slowly cons titutional Government, gives the legisla ture and those who act with it or for it the benefit of every doubt. ! Theirs is by far the most difficult role. The lamp of liberty is in their hands, if it is in anybody's hands. The physical force of the occasion is President Harri son tried to put through with a Jingo whoop, and his long plotting that Commission er Blount has now exposed and the President brought to naught. The first "lay" of the annexation ist schemers was Anglophobia. The English were after the islands. The queen was a good woman and a mild sovereign, but ful-jalmost always in iy unaer "Ji.ngusu:ine nanas 01 tneir influence." j enemies.

That! ship based on the plot was hatch- j brute force. In the ing for at least two lease of Chili, we months is shown! did just the oppo site of this. We sided with Bolma ceda from the outset. We set our navy to sympathize with him; we put our law in motion to discourage and op press his enemies, and treated his pinchbeck and il legal machine as if it were the legi timate Govern ment of Chili, in the teeth of all the best traditions of our Department of State. Finally, we came near going to war with the Republic, and so smashing it that the materials for a good and strong legitimate popu lar Government would probably have been wanting for generations. We hope this mistake will not be repeated in Brazil. We do not as yet know which side is right, but the presumption is in favor of the malcontents, of Congress, of the writters of the orators, and one may say of the navy. Much more might he added hut it is unnecessary. The Nation has labored to prove the whole Hawai ian affair a Republican conspiracy, in face of the facts published by itself as news, of the constant op pression of Kalakaua and Liliuo kalani against popular right ; of the debauchery and corruption flaunted before the world of the overthrown monarchy, of its steady retrogression and of the peril to the moral and national interest of the thousands of Americans and other foreigners who not only repre sent its civilization, but whose character, wealth and numbers give this country a standing before the world. It says in Brazil "The presumption is in favor of the mal contents;" but in Hawaii it de nounces us as "filibusters." W. R. Castle. . by the article in Minister Stevens' Eaper of Novem er 24, 1S92, i in forming the Amer ican people that something was going to happen in Hawaii. If there is any explanation of all these mysteries except the one Secretary Gresh am charges, name ly, that the Amer ican Minister in trigued with a lot of other aliens to overthrow the con stitutional govern ment of Hawaii, we should be glad to have it pointed out. It is clear, at any rate, that Secretary Fos ter's "unexpected change of govern ment" was not un expected to the conspirators. As Mr. Gre8ham re marks, President Herri son and Sec retary Foster may have been de ceived, but Ste vens and his allies were not.

Scarlet fever first shows itself with headache, vomiting, sore throat and high fever. Within twelve or twenty-four hours, a fine bright scarlet rash appears on the face and upper part of the body, soon spreading over the whole surface. After the third day it fades. After the eighth day the skin begins to peel in fine scales on the body often in large flakes iioas the hands and feet. This scaling lasts from four to six weeks. There is danger of spreading from the time of the appearance of the rash until the skin has entirely peeled off. The flakes of dry skin are especially dangerous in spread ing the disease.
