The British Com missioner had duly and accurately in formed her, and her Cabinet of the fact, in detail, about the election. If Mr. Dole was not virtually elected to office, the Commissioner, the British Government, and the Queen knew It well enough, and if Mr. Dole's state ment was not, true, she knew it was not trne. According to Bishop Willis, Queen Victoria should have replied to Presi dent Dole as follows: "Old man, you can't play that game on me. My Commissioner in Hawaii Is quite too Oy. I am willing to congratulate you on being a respectable usurper, but as an elected President, never, u-e-v-e-r! rzt ihf back to tbv caves, and thine idols! Hawaiian caitiff, avauntl" In suppressing the real facts, and in casting a gloom over the accuracy of history, as Bishop Willis has done, is it isible that the Queen of .England, and President Dole, have engaged in an underhanded trick to deceive man kind? And has Mr. Hawes been made a miserable tool, in the affair?

There is a curious contradiction torical truths. in the opinions of plantation mana gers regarding the conduct of these people. This may be due to an Ignor ance of their real character. One manager says they are ready to strike at any moment, and quick to take offense. Another manager says that he never has any trouble with them whatever. It may be that it Is the tame -trouble which appears in "ser- ,Yant-gaMsm." One woman keeps her servant for years. Another woman Is in hot water about ,them, and changes them every month. What some of our plantation managers re gard as . a national menace may be lum entirely to the irr no ranee, or want of tact, on the part of the man agers. There it much to be said on both sides.

The great difficulty historians have iu ascertaining theacts of past events and disentangling the truth from the superficial view that gained currency in its place has received a curious illustration in the Kecogni tion accorded to the Hawaiian Ile public by Great Britain. On July 4th nf thi vpar. toithemt election Mr. rf. B. Dole aurncd theofllce and authority C- .TT Z( A A CHOICE TRACT OF by virtue VtuUU. about 200 of President of the Republic of the Constitution which declared him to be President (Art. 23), the citi zen being excluded from any voice in the election of President for six year (Art. 24). Nevertheless, on the loth of November, the British Commis sioner presented to Mr. Dole a letter signed by Queen Victoria, in which Her Majesty having 'received the letter which you addressed to Us on the 7th day of July last, in which You informed U that You have been elected President of the Republic of Hawaii, etc.,' requests him 'to accept Her congratulations on this distin guished mark of confdtncr of his fel low citizens,' who had been debarred from any opportunity of expressing their confidence. The result of this letter will be that outside of Hawaii, where the truth is known, the world will now believe that the relation of the Republic to the people, and of the President to the Republic rests on the ;ame footing here as in the United States of America. This is the way history is made, facts being sup pressed, and a new color given to events. No wonder there should be difflcnlty in determining whether Henry VIII was the pious Defender of the Faith or a veritable Bluebeard. In future it may be allowable to doubt whether it is really true that Wash ington couldn't lie, and whether Julius Ciesar didn't get some one else to write the Commentaries that bear his name." The Rev. Alfred Willis, D. D, has suspended, for a moment, bis classic attitude of praying for Mr. Dole, and becomes a historical critic. e re print the rare literary gem of his cre ation. In order to show that history is full of untruths, he proceeds to tell one himself. He is like the temper ance lecturer, who, in order to show the evils of intern perauce, got drunk before his audience. Mr. Dole's name was placed iu the constitution by the delegates, who were elected by the ptrople to form a constitution. The adoption of the constitution, and the election of Mr. Dole, by the delegates, was the act of the citizens. The election by an agent is the election by the principal. The qualified voters of these i-dauds have not disputed the act, and have ratified it by assent, as Dr. Willis knows. This phase of the matter is insigni ficant, however, in comparison with Dr. Willis' crafty attempt to make it out that the British Cabinet is made np of Idiots, that Queen Victoria is a fool, and the British Commissioner here la a dolt. Queen Victoria knew, long before she wrote the letter, requesting Mr. Dole to accept her congratulations acres in fcoutu Kona. within one hour's ride from the landiDg at Kealakekua Bay ; the large pinion of this is fine coffee land, about 140 acres tan be plowed.

There is perhaps no myth so pleasant in the hearts of the youngsters as this one about the old fellow, the reindeers and the chimney and nothing in the life of the parent which justifies the little deceit as much as this. For this climate, however, the illustrations and the text of the legend should be changed; no kid, however backward he may be, can be persuaded that on the 24th of December an old patriarch goes about dressed in fur lined garments and snow shoes. The climate won't stand it and we can't understand why the children do. Why riot have some one of our enterprising book deal ers get up something appro priate for the mid-Pacific Christmas. There's talent enough in town to make de sign's for the illustrations and plenty of poets to put the thing in rhyme. It would be a new departure from the con ventional fur robed old chap, and should be a go here and elsewhere. People from the States would buy it to show the tots at home what sort of a looking fellow Santa Claus is, in the Paradise of the Pacific. Our stock does not include many articles for children, but we are pretty well fixed for the middle aged and the old. We have some special bargains in the house keeping line and can supply you with as fine and serviceable an ice chest as can be made. We don't wish to imply that they are as at tractive in appearance as if they were patched up with mirrors and geegaws, but they are more serviceable. They are built on an ice sav ing principle, one that works like a charm. The best quality of Cocoa Mats came to us on the "Rou tenbeck." There's nothing mere useful about the house than a good quality mat unless it is money. We find a Hart mann Steel Mat indispensible in wet weather, and a Cocoa Mat a necessity when it does not rain. The two styles to gether form a useful combina- mm m tion, that saves wear and tear of the carpets and matting. In this new lot we have some of the cheap ones; they sell at 50 cents, and others of the better sort that are a trifle higher in price. Not a poor one in the lot, and none but will stand plenty of kicking about. Cut glass at half the price you are used to paying for it, ought to be inducement enough for you to buy. The pieces we have are not as broad as a church door, or as deep as a well, but they are I great in quality. 1 he pieces are suitable lor ever' day use rather than on company nights.
