If It had a voj,.-, it would saj: 'I ak yon for ail to-iay, hut I am co beggar, In my extremity. On tbe lexers, which hold my accounts with the Hawaiian nation, a balance Is due me, and I alc for it. Charge me with the cent of tone from the sea bed, of timber from the mountains and the labor of building. Then credit me with that which ha been done within my walla; that for the good of man, and the glory of God; I aland alone, vljihle, real, and endur ing. The- generations rise and fall, beside me. Tbe feeble thoughts of men, light up, and die out, within my walk like farthing candle, in the dark. I iball be the Kudy of the historian. In coming year, the children will pauie before my venerable wall, with reverence and lore. I am the monument of Ha waii, and I now ak only that which Is due to me." A SAD NXQLICT. The ievere comments of tbe Holo mua on the neglect of tbe trustees of the Oabu College, in not placing a copy of that paper In tbe corner stone of Pauabl Hall, Is very just. It was a cross oversight, in not providing future ages with the means of study ing the peculiar civilization repre sented by that paper. There "should have been another, and a second "corner stone in another part ot the building, In which should have been placed the most significant emblems of national progress ; a copy of the Holomua, containing its truth ful and vivid account of the downfall of tbe native race tbrough "poi and gin ; " a copy of Ka Leo,"contalning samples of "English as she U spoke; " a picture of the" Hale "Nana,' a the finest'flower of monarchical ideas; a copy of the lottery bill, which would put the people In the bands of a Lottery King; a copy of the Constitution which the Deposed" intended to establish In 1S93; a copy of the Act, allowing liquor to be 'sold to natives; a photograph of Bishop Willis, In the attitude of refusing to pray for Presi dent Dole; the sticks of a kahuna, used in praying the revolutionists to death; an idol from the museum, holding in his hands a copy of the Holomua; the pipe into which the natives put their great opportunity for self-rule, and smoked it up ; an account of the coronation of Kalakaua, with copies of the choice meles com posed for the occasion. Indeed, it is not too late to have another ceremony, and request the "Deposed " to graciously lay another corner stone. BRING THE IiOHGRASTS. The remarkable stagnation of busi ness, and the extremely low price of fftrxn products, in the States, makes the farmers restless, and anxious to better their condition, by emigration. Mr. Henry, recently from the Wil lamette valley, says, that probably five hundred farmers, with means, would move to these islands, within a year, if they could really better their conditions. The United State, o2Vr, in many ways, the best home for tbe immi grants, in the world. It is a coun try to emigrate to, and cot to leave. Its resources have hardly been touched. A score of States, are now crying for more population. When, however, there is great commercial and agricultural depression, many men become restless, and move. There will be a return of prosperity, in the States, as a matter of course, within a short time. The men who are now willing to move from their faxnis to these islands will refuse to come. The period of prosperity may last for ten years, or more. Here, then, is the grand and rare opportunity, of the Republic, to rein force itd American, or white element. Such an opportunity may not occur, again, for some time. These farmers should be brought here, and settled, at all bazzards. Only a bold, quick, and thoroughly earnest movement, on the part of the Government, will get them. Individual enterprise will do much, but the Government can insure the success of it, by, at once, giving sufficient guarantees that the needed land will be furnished, by guaranteeing roads, by, in short, sim ply taking care that the immigration is secured, provided, always, It Is of the kind it is represented to be. If Colonel Spreckels, or a man with his organizing power, owned the islands, he would regard it as an excellent bu'ineas affair, and see that it wan done promptly, and thoroughly. It is ea.y aad delightful, for us to talk over our needs, and gossip about tbe Inroads of the Asiatic, but when we are confronted with hard, solid, work, for the common good, we shirk it. All communities do the same thing. But we are in a good deal of peril, as everybody knows, and we must do some effective work or suiter the consequences. In some repect, the securing, and settling of Immigrants here, from the European and American state, i more Important, just now, than any interest of the Republic, aside from annexation. We shall always find it difficult to secure a good da of im migrant farmer, from the Ansrlo- .Saxon countries. The great depres sion in the American States gives n the chance of a lifetime. What shall be done about it? The opening of the Fair last night, on behalf of the Kawaiahao Church, was successful and brilliant. There was uncommon enthusiasm mani fested by the visitors. The candy de partment arranged several large and important deals In boxes of sugar ma terial. Sales at all the booths Indicated that the friend3 of the great Hawaiian monument were rallying to its sup port. RAINFALL FOR NOVEMBER, 1694. (From Reports to Weather Service.) Elev. r'eet.

The difncultv which island steamers have experienced during the past two weeks in making landings on Maui and Hawaii is a great big point in the argument favoring the building of an island cable by the government. Even though it would not pay expenses dur ing the first two years, the advantage it would be to every one on the islands would be so fully recognized at the end of that period that after that time it would be self supporting, and possibly profitable. 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 I sort. The plan upon which the ! 1 '1. T..

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 litde "drop o suthin " to keep their spirits up. We have smaller sizes, both plain and engraved. I The new refrigerators, the I "Alaska." is the best we have i ever seen.
