THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HOyQIUIiU, yOVEHBER 30, 1894, The Pacific Commercial Advertiser !ued Kvery Morning, Except Sunday, by th Hawaiian Gazette Company At No. 31X Merchant Street. N. ARMSTRONG, EDITOR. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER CO, 1804. THANKSGIVING. In the evolution of Thankscivinc Day, a critical point has been reached. As a simple day for the return of thanks for blessings re ceived, it was in the line of Puritan thought, but when altars were gradually erected, upon which offer ings of roast turkey, roast pig and chicken pie, were made to those idols, the appetites of men, a dis turbing element was created. For tho thoughts of even the best of houeewives, were during the Thanksgiving service, in their kitch ens; the good man found that his heart was truer to Poll of the chicken pie, than to the 'four teenthly" of the sermon, and the email boy, standing on the shore of a vast ocean of tempting food, revolved in his mind the problem, as to how far the skin over the hu man stomach could be stretched, without cracking. On -this commemorative day is presented ,the curious spectacle, especially in New England, of the chariot of humanity, drawn by two steeds; one of them milk-white, ' which struggles upwards to a .higher plane of spiritual life ; the other, coal-black, which plunges down to the abye3 of gluttony. The goal of one is the serenity of the soul's rest; the goal of the other is the torpid repose coming after roast pig, and luau. Can the chariot of humanity stand this strain more than once a year? There should be erected in every city and town, on these islands, a platform scales, like the Fairbanks manufacture, but adjusted, by some supernatural agency, for the delicate and unerring weighing of I character and spiritual growth. On Thanksgiving day, each citizen should stand on it, and drop a nickel into its slot, by direction of law, and the recorded gain or loss of weight, in spiritual growth, should be observed in the Interior office, and be published in the Advertiser. It should be an occa sion of festivity for those who have made gainp, and a day of humilia tion for those who have made losses. The annual taking of account would furnish very instructive les eons, especially, if in the churches, the seats were occupied, according to spiritual weights. This arrangement, however, is hardly fitted for the present condi tion of the world, and will be established by those in the coming centuries, who believe in "Looking Backwards." Thanksgiving day, emphasizes our purpose to secure the greatest improvement of ourselves, and our families. Let us recall the homely but practical lesson, "given by the old Xew England preacher. It was a custom in the old colon ial days of New England, for the farmer to ask, and obtain, tne nraver of the Dominie, over any field which he proposdd to plow and sow in grain. It was sam inai on one occasion, a shrewd and prac tical Dominie was taken to a field, and asked to invoke divine blessing upon it, and that, after he had raised his hat and hand, and was about to begin, he slowly looked over the poor soil, and solemnly, re marked, "Deacon, this land don't want prayer ; it wants manure." Let us recall the words of the good Dominie, and when we ask our pastors to pray for a rich har vest of spiritual growth, let him not have cause to reply, that our souls need, rather, the manure of our own self-sacrifice, and work. We are thankful that in the roll call of the nations, our little Re- j public shouts "here." We are thankful that its government is honest; that Mr. Dole is at the helm, and by him, etand true and tried lieutenants, and a? sentinel on, our watch towers, they answer "all is well." We are thankful that the American Star of Empire moves westward, and will soon rest in the sky over us. We are thankful that the native race. lor whom so many devout, LA BELLE BERKARDINE; OR The Banker's Bride. A Tal: r.f Honolulu. CHAPTER I. A KLIGHTED LIFE. Bernardine, the Banker's Bride, the bride of a few fehort hour?, paced ner vously up and down her sumptious boudoir. Her eyes were unnaturally bright, her cheek9 pale and tear- iemimrvi auc " ii" a would have been bo happy! Ah for as tne man wno wmcuen uer , , a -i i i 1 with the anxietv be could not conceal, men and women have toiled, and , j1111 veaUh to him now? sacrificed themselves, in the past, has not met the cruel fate of weaker race?, and that, to the end, there will, we pray, remain the same ten der care, and thoughtfulness, which has made the little story of these islands, a glittering page in history. THE IMPUDENT TRAMWAY COMPANY. We hear that the Tramway Com pany has declared its intention to ; swers earnestly; make it "hot" for those who have attempted to prevent the cruel treatment of the animals in it3 ser vice Very well. Let the public now take a hand in the business, and see if there is not some loose heat to be used about that com- pany. bection l- oi us cnarier is a3 follows : The rate of fare for each passenger upon the said railroad shall not ex ceed five cents for each passenger usincr said cars un to and within Judd street, the Industrial School, and to and within Punahou street; and ten cents for each passenger using said cars beyond the last mentioned points. Section 9 provides that if any overcharge is made, this railroad shall forfeit the sum of $100 to the person overcharged. It will be seen, at once, that there is no authority to charge over five cents from Punahou to Judd street. There is no provision which allows the company to make a new charge at Queen street, for neither that street and no other street in the city is mentioned as a starting point, or a place where a new charge is made. The rate is five cents for using the said cars up to and within Judd street." Where from ? Why, from the place you get into the cars, at Punahou, or elsewhere. It does not say from Queen street. The rate is also five cents " to and within Punahou street." Where from ? The law does not say. Therefore, it is from the point where you enter the cars anywhere from Judd street downwards. Ten cents fare is allowed for using the cars " beyond these points." How, then, can that sum be charged within them ? No doubt the framer of the law overlooked this point, and intendtd to make Queen street the point, where a new fare could be collected. But the law does not say so, and we must take the law as it reads. If the penalties were collected for the violations of this law, it would terminate the miserable ex istence of this disgraceful concern. A tramp could make a little for tune out of these fines. "Merciful Heavens'." was his thought; she weep?, and I would give my mil lions to brintr back the smile on that fair face. What can have changed her thus?" .Suddenly the fair uirl pauses ami gazes reproachfully at uim. "Douglis Blanchard," she tays-; "when I con sented to be ycur wife, you promised me all that refinement could wish and wealth could purchase." "I did!" he says. "Look around vou. .See on every side the sump tuousr;ess and gilded elegance with which you are environed." "You have trifled with we,'' ?he says coldlv. I pleihre vuu mv worn," ne an- i nave iuiuneu every promise. No pains or expense have been spareti; tne uecoraiions oi this mansion are palatial; the old world and the new have been ran sacked for rare and costly furnishings. More than I have done is beyond the magic of the wand of wealth." "Douglas Blanchard!" The wo man's voice is firm; but a look of wistful sadness is in those large blue eyes. "Douglas Blanchard," she re peats: Thc linen in the clotct is not SprouWs Shamrock " "Merciful Heavens'." he gasps; "it is not you but I that have been be trayed; I told them to get the Best!"

The difference between tweedledee and tweedledum is apparent the moment you examine our stock of solid silver ware and that sold in other establishments. This is a new line we have gone into this season and the stock was bought in San Francisco by Mr. Hendry. Only the very latest designs were selected for our trade, and we believe we have just what the people want. The stock comprises Sugar Shells, Butter Knives, Soup and Gravy Ladles, Salad and Fish Sets, Preserve and Berry Spoons, Sugar Tongs, Olive Spoons and Forks, Sardine Forks, Cold Meat and Lettuce Forks, Pie Knives, and forty-seven other articles not catalogued. In fancy goods our five o'clock tea stands will win the admiration of the lady who wishes to be in the fashionable swim without going to a great expense. We have a half dozen very pretty patterns. Banquet lamps, handsomer than anything ive have ever shown before, will tempt you to discard your electric lights and go back to kerosene. We have also a stock of use ful and ornamental goods in aluminum. Sleeve Links, Combs that will not break; Hair Pins with aluminum filagree work that rivals silver in brightness and is more ser vicable because the trimmings will not tarnish. Handsome flasks that hold water, whiskey or root beer. A full assortment of pocket cutlery of the Wostenholm make reached us by the Alameda. The people who have inquired of us for knives during the past few weeks can now be accommodated. Our importation of Ice Chests and Refrigerators this week includes all sizes and the best preservers of fruits, meats and vegetables we have ever had. Some have compart ments especially for butter, so that it does not come in con tact with anything that will af fect the flavor. These Refri gerators are made of hard wood hamdsomely carved and polished. A full line of silver plated ware complete in every thing suitable for table use adorns our shelves. Some of the art icles are hard to distinguish from solid ware, in some in stances the designs are copied from those used in the genuine article. Another new departure for us is the patent thousand-and-one position reclining chair. To the man who goes home from his business worn out with the cares of the day, noth ing is more acceptable to him than an easy chair in which he can recline and read his news paper. The chair we have may be placed in any position, from bolt upright to a couch. The arms, back and seat are upholstered in movable cush ions, the chair having an iron frame with cane seat and back. For good solid comfort we commend these chairs to the public. We mentioned last week a new shoe blacking box of new design very complete and which folds completely out of the way when not in use. We have them in Japanned or Xickel finished. The Avery Fertilizer Dis tributors and Stubble Diggers for plantation use, arrived on the Alameda. The Hawaiian Hardware Co.
