The Pacific Commercial Advertiser !..ud Bery Morninj, Except Sunday, by th Hawaiian Gazette Company t .31K Merchant Street. W. Jf. ARMSTBOXG, EDITOR. WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 12, 1894. U5ITABUNISM AND CHARITY. Statements were made last Sun day, in the Central Union Cburcb, contrasting the work of the "ortho dox" and the Unitarians,which tend to raise unprofitable controversies. We relate, in another column, some facts regarding the connection of the Unitarian Church with the founder of the Hampton School, as the subject was especially al luded to. It is conceded, we believe, that the most yaluable charities on these islands, established by an individ ual, are those created by Mr. C. R. Bishop, a Unitarian. Perhaps, Satan, unbeknown to us, is sowing "tares" in the Kamehaineha Schoole, through Mr. C. R. Bishop's heresy of Unitarianism, which are, according to accepted standards, worse than those of Mr. Garvin's. So far, however, the splendid mon uments of Mr. C. R. Bishop's be nevolence have not done much harm. We mu3t be watchful, lest the Enemy get a foothold. ran COOKING. It is a little etrange that our bright young women do not follow the example of the cultivated young women of the Eastern States, in the itudy of cooking as a fine art. In the dark ages of woman's life (we do not refer to the ages of individuals), cooking was regarded as a menial occupation, and the worst and most uncomfortable quarters of the house were assigned to the kitchen. We recall an exception, in the case of the millionaire inventor of one of the most popular revolvers, who, in building a magnificent house over looking the valley of the Connecti cut, made the kitchen the most conspicuous room, because, he said, his wife Molly was always "to hum," in the kitchen and wouldn't leave it. Men cannot conduct business succesfully unless they are masters of its details. The backwardness of women is largely due to igno rance of the importance of this knowledge. A wife may keep an excellent table, but she cannot keep the best unless she is, herself, mas ter of the art of cooking. The really bright, thinking young women are finding this out, and the study of it has become a "fad," with many, and a serious affair with many more, in the large cities. In many wealthy families the bright young women, after attending the cooking schools, give "swell dinners" of their own, the dishes of which they have personally cooked, and gourmands are invited in to criti cise. Several years ago a young woman, dining with friends, at Del iconicoV, in New York, criticised the cooking of a certain dish. The Chef resented it, and she offered to make a better dish. She did so, the next day, in the presence of her friends and the Chef himself. To those who are in moderate circumstances knowledge of this art is indispensible, because it means economy, pleasure, and even happy homes. The wife of a poor man may put on her table, if she is proficient, at small expense, dishe3 that the rich cannot com mand excepting at very great ex pense. The food in some humble homes is better cooked than in merchants' palaces, because intel ligent skill is at work. Instruction in cooking is now a permanent business in the States, because the idea that the cooking of food was a menial and secondary affair in the household is becom ing obsolete. It has made many miserable homes. No young woman is equipped for her life work until she is proficient in this art. Stupid women say they will not bo cooks. Certainly not. But they must know the theory and practice of it. The rainbows of married lite oiten rest over the kitchen and not the parlor. ABOUT KISSING. In another column, we reprint an account of a singular disturb ance, in the higher official life of firPAt Britain, arieinc out of the request for a kiss, made by one j English officer, in India, to the 1 wife of another officer. It Eeems j to have set everybody by the ear, j and called for the serious action off anu caxieu iu4 v. nn Hnuprnmpnt whose drum i i.oot fM?nwa the sun around the world. The momentous question involved in asking for a kiss, arises only in a high state of civilization. While the statesmen 01 jngianu have tanen me crouuu iuat iut nave b asking for a kifs, under the cir- cumstance3 in view, is naughty, and entirely contrary to the spirit of the British constitution, quite another view of the subject, is taken j jt Would not pay expenses dur by a large portion of the intelligent j. thg firgt twQ years tne citizens of the United States. A Texas cowboy took his fiancee after the engagement, to a. dance, and because the boys were afraid to kiss her, as they kissed the other girls, he drew his revolver and threatened to shoot every fel low that did not do the fair thing and kis3 his girl as they did the rest of them. A profound student will at once see the different stages of civiliza tion. A case like that of Surgeon Smith has, probably, never oc curred in these islands, owing to a preference for other and more popu lar amusements, and it would be, therefore, only idle speculation to discuss what the attitude of our Cabinet would be, in a similar case. In view of the annexation movement, they should incline to the American," or Texas view of the case, although they would, pro bably, not encourage the use of revolvers on festive occasions, when kissing was proposed. On the whole, we should expect a divided Cabinet, although it is clear that any views of the members would be subject to revision and correc tion by their estimable wives. If these gentlemen hesitate to tackle it, a high joint commission of the Star and Advertiser will do it. Mr. Labouchere's brilliant views on the question of "flirting," in this connection, involves some in tricate problems, and it might be well for the Thimble Bee Society to suspend its searching and pro found discussions on the origin of the Stellar system and solve this social problem. In the early days of the Republic, let us promptly meet these perplex ing matters, and not postpone them, as the British statesmen have done, until the discussion of them shakes society to its center. A correspondent suggests that, in the building of the Oahu rail way, white and Hawaiian laborers should be employed, and that American laborers can be procured, who would become settlers on the soil. Thi3 is an opportunity for the Government to take advantage of, for increasing the American population. This can only be done by devising some plan by which these laborers may be brought in, with their families, at the expense of the Republic. Private enter prise cannot do it. Every able bodied laborer who goes into agri culture and stays in it, adds a large monev value to the State. It was once said, in the United States, that every able-bodied immigrant added $1,000, at least, to the wealth of the country. Typewriters Repaired.

Let the agitators agitate and the enthusiasts enthuse. Solid silverware that goes to you at 25 per cent, less than you have ever paid for the same quality should be induce ment enough for every one to use solid ware instead of plat ed. Our assortment contains some beautiful single pieces and sets, so pretty in fact that they will not remain long with us. You cannot all get the best; the early bird gets the rose bug. If you do not feel that you can afford solid goods, we can accommodate you in the plated line and serve you just as satisfactorily. We have been careful in our selec tions buying only what is really useful and of good value to our customers. If you have never used a Dietz's oil stove with an oven and real cooking utensils, you probably do not know its value; you're probably "agin" oil stoves, because the small one you have had smoked and blackened your saucepan. Do not estimate the convenience and worth of a Dietz by com parison with one of the small sort. The plan upon which the large ones are built precludes the possibility of smut, smell or explosion. It will cook a meal for two cents and give you as much satisfaction as an iron stove. You may use it in any part of the house without the labor and trouble of removing the stove pipe; the Dietz is its own smoke consumer and needs no pipe to carry it off. We sell them complete at a price that will surprise you. Among our silverware, (an additional lot by the Australia) we find some very elegant flasks, men's size, which will be appreciated by those who need a little "drop o' suthin " to keep their spirits up. We have smaller sizes, both plain and engraved. The new refrigerators, the "Alaska," is the best we have ever seen. The air channels are constructed so that the air strikes the ice directly on top and must go entirely around it and become thoroughly cooled before it de cends to the compartment for meats, etc. The Alaska is by far the best made refrigerator we have ever handled. It is economic of ice and is a "good looker." If you need any serviceable article for the holidays it will be to your interest to examine our stock. Tbe Han ailm Hantaan Id. Ruction 0alts. James F.
