THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, NOVEMBER 1, 1894,
4 The Pacific Commercial Advertiser !ud Evry Morning, Except Sunday, by th Hawaiian Gazette Company At No. 31 MrrthMit lret. W. N. ARM3TR0NO, EDITOR. THURSDAY. : NOV? MDKU I, 1S94. CHARLES A. DANA. A likene33 of Mr. Charles A. Da na appears in another column, lie is the only survivor of the great journalists, uho made the Tribune, Times and Sun, farnou3 and influ ential. When a young man Mr. Dana was an idealist, and joined Hawthorne, Curtis and others, on the famous Brook farm, where they "cultivated sublime ideas with com mercial fertilizers." During the civil war, Mr. Dana was Assistant Secretary of War. He had the faculty of taking in the situation at once, when inspecting army opera tions, or in consulting the army leaders. He was, therefore, called the "eyes of the government." Be fore the war, he was one of the staff of the Tribune'. After the war, he purchased the Sun. Hi3 idea of a newspaper i3, that it must present facts and opinions clearly and concisely. It is admitted by nearly all journalists that the Sun is the most "quotable" paper pub lished in the States. Mr. Dana is a scholar and student, and his lit erary taste3, and inspirations per vade the thought and expression of the paper, so far as it may be done, without shooting over the heads of the average reader. In reaching this result, he has shown great ekill, and the Sunday edition of the paper is a marvel of newspaper lit erature, and to such an extent, that many thousands of people take only the Sunday edition. No paper, published in the States, has done better work for Hawaii, than the Sun. It has presented the case of the revolutionists and annexationists, here, with persist ence, skill and intelligence. Mr. Dana dislikes Mr. Cleveland, and has used the Hawaiian matter, with great effect, in his attacks upon the latter. He i3 never con tented with giving a single blow, in his attacks. He "hammers," daily, weekly, yearly, until he has driven home the idea he wishes to convey. He is, like all of the great jour nalists, entirely independent, in his political views. Nominally, he is a Democrat, and is, now, a strong backer of Senator Hill. But, we heard a Republican leader say, "he is a better Republican than I am." His tariff views are not in the plat form of either party. For his persistent, admirable work, on behalf of Hawaii, the Ad vertiser cordially tenders to him the thanks of the supporters of this Republic. Mr. Dana should be in vited to visit these islands, and if he does, our beautiful women will crown him with leis, sing to him the low, sweet notes of our native music, and put to his lips the lotus fruit, which will pass him into dreams of tropical rest. AMERICAN EXPANSION M. Leroy-Deaulieu, the celebrated French economist, believes that the people of the United States are about to enter Upon a penou 01 , rroit rnmmprMnl PTntnoinn. ! His reasons are, mainly, that the cost of production has been brought so low that it is possible for them to compete with Great Britain and Germany in the foreign markets. In confirmation of this it appears that more goods of a certain class have been exported from the port of Philadelphia, within a few months, than have ever been ex ported in the same period of time before. Iron, of a certain quality, is made mora cheaply in Alabama than in England, but it9 transpor tation to the sea is costly. Free trade in wool will now make the States the greatest man ufacturers and exporters of clothing in the world. An English clothier of London eaid, ten years ago, that when wool was put on the free list n the States, their clothing mer- chants would take the foreign trade of England. All this cannot be done in a day. But the movement has begun, and will grow until the Japanese and Chinese go into the business. Onk of the amendments to the con fctitution of the State of New York, projoel by the Convention, la that the rural districts shall have a larger number of representatives, In propor tion to the inhabitants, than the cities fchall have. The Republicans will vote for it, as a means of defeating Tarn ma ny, and can, in this way, control the State, even if the Democrats get 75,000 majority. In other words, the Con stitutional Convention found itself confronted with many of the same conditions that exist in these islands, and met them Just as we have met them here. It is quite remarkable that there has been no severe criti cism of our Constitution by Americau writers. They quite appreciate our situation. Hawaiian boys are still at the front, in athletic. In the Mogan Park Academy, of the University of Chi cago, II. V. Dickey, of Maui, is a suc cessful athlete. He took the first prize, on Field Day ; won the cham pionship in the tennis tournament; took the first prize in jumpintr at the firemen's tournament on July 4th, and a beautiful silver cup from the teunis tournament at Kewanee, 111. Taking the record of all of the Hawaiian ath letes, in the States, no one dare say that the white boy don't flourish in the tropics. Here is the sanitarium for developing athlete9. On the passage of the new tariff law, by the Congress of the United States, reciprocity with Brazil ended. The importers, however, of Brazillian goods, claim that by the reciprocity treaty with that country, a contract was made, by which three mouths no tice of termination was to be given, and, therefore, the new tarifTcan not operate, so far as Brazil is concerned, until January next. The matter goes to the courts. This is an excellent likeness of Chas. A. Dana, reproduced from the Literary Digest. Mr. Daua is one of the most influential and famous newspaper ed itors of the day. From the very first lie has been an able advocate and firm friend of the new Government of llawaii. 1 Auction Salts. By Lewis JT. Levey. THIS DAY. SPECIAL AUCTION SALE !

Cures con- sumption if taken in time. - - - - - - - - . . ..... - - Xot unpleasant to take. Te timonial of Mr. Walton. Ancient Use of Petroleum. As a remedial agant petroleum was known to the ancients by whom it was considered a sovereign remedy. Literature on the Subject. It is only within recent years that the properties of petroleum have been dis cussed through the medical journals. Articles have appeared and given, in very positive language, the mo3t gratify ing results from its use, boih as medicine and as a reconstructive. Great value is attributed to petroleum in the treatment of consumption, bronchitis, la grippe, catarrh, asthma, diseases of the diges tive apparatus and of the kidneys, as well as in wasting diseases It appears to have especial value in all pu'monary complaints. Former Drawbacks to Its Use. The reason why petroleum has not been more general in use is due to the fact that, in its unpurified state, it has nauseating and irritating properties. After exhaustive experiments Angler's Petroleum Emulsion was secured. It is deprived of all objectionable features while retaining the valuable medicinal qualities, and is acceptable to both palate and 6tomach. Petroleum Emulsion vs. Cod Liver Oil. j AH who have ever tried Cod Liver Oil I know what a nauseating dose it is. It is J impossible to disguise the disagreeable taste and odor of the Oil. I he palate and stomach revolt against it. Every Mother Loves To see her children strong and healthy. If the little ones are troubled with coughs, croup, or are thin and puny, or have any wasting disease, they can be brought back to health by Angier's Emulsion. Children will take it readily who resist taking Cod Liver Oil. It Saved My Life. "Six months a3, I was told by three physicians that 1 had quick consumption. I was coughing badly, had hemorrhages and profuse night sweats. I was rapidly wast ing away. I tried Cod Liver Oil, but coul J not retain it. Angier's Petroleum Emul sion was then prescribed. It agreed with nie perfectly. I then weighed 102 pounds. Now after taking it C months I weigh 101 pounds. I consider myself cured and attri bute it all to Angier's Petroleum Emulsion. 1. II. Walton, Bedford. Mass." Tell Your Sick Friends. It i? worth your while to give Angier's Petroleum Emulsion a trial. Have you any friends with colds or consumption? Tell them about it. Angier's Petroleum Emission can be obtained from THE obroD Drug Coni'y Agents for Angier Chem ical Company. El OLS ON Jimly 5opie5 October 26, i8g4. If the United States govern ment should place no obstacles in the way of the cable scheme from Vancouver to the Colo nies via Honolulu, Hawaii nei will, within the next two years take on a new lease of life. Instead- of a couple of third rate steamers on the Canadian line, there will be five of the first-class. Emigrants will learn more about our country and the lands will be settled by the small farmer. Houchins Water Filters at a dollar apiece will be in demand by thousands instead of hundreds as it is today. The islands will be joined by a local cable line and the country in general will be in the swim instead of the soup. The advent of a cable will bring to our shores men with progressive ideas, men who by their acts will better themselves, at the same time improve the condition of the country. Hawaii is all right; it has the finest climate in the world and the people would wax rich on it if climate was a commercial commodity the trouble is with the people. Compared with the United States, we areliving in the era, of pantalettes instead of bloom ers. We want newblood,some- thinor that will make us shake off the lethar gy that the people have lived in since the time of whaleships. Give us a cable and we will have new blood. The news papers, instead of publishing boiler plate will give the news of the world for breakfast. You will learn, probably, that the metallic refrigerator we are selling is the greatest ice saver of the age and that it is economy, money in your purse to buy one. We put thirty pounds of ice in one of the boxes on Friday evening and it was not all melted until Monday afternoon, keeping the lower portion of the box at a temprature of 58 0 all the time. If you can get a wood en refrigerator or ice box that will do better than that you ought to buy one. We've never seen them. Incidentally we have men tioned Houchins' Tap Water Filter; now we will tell you what it is. An arrangement that fits on to the faucet and filters the muddy water as clear as crystal. Talk about microbes; they're not to be found in filtered water, and where can you find anything to equal the Houchin filter for a dollar. We have them for the regular nose pipe tne size generally used here and we expect a big demand for them. The very unique Electric table bells so much used in the United States have a place with us. You can have one for two and a half. Rain guages that will tell you to a drop how much rain falls in your locality during the night or all day for that mat ter, reached us by the Mono wai, together with a complete assortment of pocket knives from Wostenholms factory. The celebrated "Fred Archer" racing glass, used al most exclusively at the Derby by London's swagger set may be obtained from us. The Hawaiian Hardware Co. Ltd.
