The all-powerful hand of martial law has within its gra3p every rebel leader. The rebellion is com pletely and thoroughly broken and the Government has before it the terrible responsibility of the dis position of the men who have been implicated in poisoning the native minds with the drugs of insurrec tion. In less than two weeks the true character of Robert Wilcox, Sam Nowlein, and the men who constitute the colony at Oahu Prison has been shown in its trne light. They are cowards, root and branch. Had their plans not been interrupted they would have. stoop ed to the lowest, most fiendish crimes known to the civilized world. They were not to Btand up and fight like men. The dyna mite bombs augured nothing but a elaughter of innocents. Defence less women and children were to be numbered among the victims. The destruction of prop erty and loss of fighting men in battle is as nothing compared with the barbarous, inhuman methods mapped out for the rebels to pursue. Theee are facts which . must not be forgotten. What though the plans were not executed ? The spirit was there. The rebels are thoroughly cowed, willing to sell the souls of every man in their ranks to save their own skins. Let them cringe ! Let them cower 1 Let them ehow what miserable wretches they are, and let each receive as never before the full extent of retri bution which martial law allows. We have no time for sympathy. Two long years . has the Govern ment been lenient toward its ene miep. Tho welfare of the country de mands prompt action against Wil cox, Nbwlein, Davies, Kickard and others against whom the official have damaging testimony. The men in the field demand it. We do not advocate meeting slaugh ter with slaughter. We have our reputation abroad to sustain, but the country wants no short impris onment, no tissue paper screen of punishment to . cover a policy of weak leniency. The men in the field have stood by the Government and their loyalty must be recipro cated. The rebel leaders have shown themselves not only enemies of the Republic, but to humanity in general. They have forfeited all rights to lifo and liberty. The dig nity of the Hawaiian Republic must be maintained. There are plenty of courageous men to stand at its back. Let justice, an un flinching, non-wavering reign. says in another column, "No na tion can serve two masters." The personality of the ex-queen must be wiped out. Otherwise, we may expect to continue in a state of political uproar. Liliuo kalani should make a statement of principles. If she takes the side of honest Government and the con tinuance of the Republic, all well and good, but if there is a disposi Jimly 5opi35 January j.;, 28Q4. And now comes Secretary Gresham and says to Cuba: "If you won't eat my flour I won't eat your sugar." This must have its effect upon tion to hold to her right of restora-1 because nearly everything con- lion me country 10 ueu uu. inr . nectea witn sucar ueais wiui out her.

As tne price 01 everything depends entirely upon the supply and demand, the cutting off of the Cuban product, which is a large one, reduces the supply and- the price sliould consequendy ad- the I vance proportionately with the ; reduction of the supply. But will Gresham insist upon car rying: out his retaliatory meas ure? It may possibly be a bluff to compel Cuba to. take the staples of the United States. Anything that . helps sugar helps Hawaii and if Mr. Gresham has taken a step in a direction that will add to the poet nee WHAT OP LILIUOKALANI ? Is Liliuoklani the ex-queen or Mrs. J. O. Dominis ? On the an swer to this question depends the proper disposition of the woman whose name has been used as a figurehead for all recent movements of the rovalists. If Liliuokalani wishes to continue to act as one of sources from which a stream of the political disquiet is to flow, this country is too small to contain her. On the other hand, if she is willing to assume the role of the widow of a private citizen, she will be given all the protection and comforts that the Government and her private income affords, and allowed to spend the rest of her days in her native country, surrounded by all the blessings of quiet home life. There is no disposition on the part of the community to interfere with the private life of Mrs. J. O. Dominis ; -but, as our correspondent j Layman Advances Views on u Venerable Toper." Mr. Editor: An American has said : "Truth crushed to earth shall again ; The eternal vears of God are heis : But Error, wounded, writhes with pain, And dies among his worshippers." Let me, Sir, make an appeal to your sense of justice, asking admission to the Pacific Commercial Adver tiser of certain matter that will tell heavily against the article on "Ven erable Topers'' in your issue of Nov. 28th last. The elder Disraeli once said " an opening quotation is a symphony preluding on the chords wnoee tones we are about to harmonize." The chords I want to strike are those of truth, the most admirable music to which any man can attune his instru ment or lend his ear. Referring to a certain inquiry made bv the British Medical Association, vonsav. this "remarkable investiga tion is already stirring,' throughout the Anglo-Saxon -world the old ques tion 01 total abstinence' ana - tem perance.' " May I ask. Mr. Editor, what you mean by is already stirring up," etc? Do you wish your readers to understand that the subject matter of the article you publish contains some new truth that will cause the "Qght for temperance" to be "fought on new lines?" So it appears. But you do it In ignorance, for I am bound to he-, lleveand do believe that you would not intentionally, miftleart your fel lows on a subject, the proper under standing of which must be fraught to many with all the issues of happiness, comfort and peace, both in their own and in the lives of those about them. Every intelligible enunciation must be true or false. Any assertion pur porting to put befoie the world the idea that the British Medical Associa tion has either permitted or endorsed a statement showing that total ab stainers from alcholic beverages are shorter-lived than either temperate, earless or free drinkers, is false. "False as dicers' oaths." When such assertions were first made in England some six years ago, Dr. Isambard Owen, secretary to the collective investigation committee of the British Medical Association, flatly denied them in the Lancet. He said: "With your permission (editors of Lancet) I will quote the conclusions regarding longevity as they actually stand. "1. That habitual indulgence iu alcoholic stimulants beyond the most moderate amount has a distinct tend ency to shorten life, the average shortening being roughly proportioned to the degree of indulgence. "2. That of men who have passed the age of twenty-five, the strictly temperate, on the average, live at least ten years longer than the decid edly intemperate. We have not in these returns the means of coming to any conclusion as to the relative dura tion of Hie of total abstainers ana nab itually temperate drinkers of alcoholic liquors. Dr. Owen also said of a pas sage purporting to be a quotation from tne report, that it "contained no less than fourteen verbal inaccuracies in the space of fourteen lines." For vears past, certain men in Eng land, exasperated at the vanity of try ing to prove to the public that two and two make five, have resorted to meaus to establish their position which the Lancet referred to as fol lows: "Some spokesmen of the liquor- selling interest have claimed to assure justice total abstinence has been proved to be I a practice detrimental to health, and that abstainers are a suorter-iived body of men than even habitual drunk ards. The doctrine thus badly pre sented is fortunately preposterous ; enough to defeat its own object; but none the Jes is it well that its fal9ity should be pointed out." With regard to the above, Dr. Owen, in still an other letter, wrote: "Permit me to eay, Sir, that my report is uot answer able for any such absurdities." You allude, Mr. E iitor, to ir Henry Thompson's views upon diet and are neither just nor very civil to women holding views different from your own. It is true that the celebrated surgeon utters no uncertain voice touching erroneous habits of eating, but that certainly does not nullify all, or anything, that he has uttered con- prosperity of Hawaii it's a "rustle of angels wings" his heart knew not of. The Wertheim Sewing Ma chine is the best thing of the kind ever brought to this country. When tourists from the United States drop into our salesrooms and see them the kick at their p-overnment because the ta riff to their homes is so high that they cannot af- lom to use tnem. in nawau the people enjoy the benefits of almost a free trade in such things and consequently get articles of European manufac- ture tnat comes too nign lor tne average mortal in the United States. . The Wertheim leads the van in all sewing machine contests. The mechanism is simple consequently there is little to get out of order. It sews three distinct stitches and saves the operator from hard work at hand sewing. For general household sewing, nothing can equal the Wer thein, because of its versatility. We sell them for about the same price you have been pay ing for a common one stitch seeing machine. There s been a thousand and one ainerent Kinas 01 nignt lamps made and half of them are not worth a nickle apiece. We have tried all kinds, some we offer for sale, others we dis carded. The latest is like a nutmeg lamp with the excep tion that they have a reflector and may be hung on the wall or placed on a table. They're worth a dollar each, but we sell them for 50 cents. There has never been a fruit picker introduced here that was satisfactory for use in picking mangoes or alligator pears. We think we have the very thing for the purpose and it costs you 50 cents without a handle, two bits more if you have it fixed ready for use. They are hard to describe and they don't look like anything else. The art student whose taste runs to wood carving can find very nice sets of tools at our store for $1.50. We imported these sets because a number of young ladies here have taken to wood carving as a diversion from the monotonous life they have been leading. If a person can get the tools for ATI a ami LIMITED, Importers. Hardware and 1 General Merchandise There are a great many homes having zinc-lined bath tubs that are in good condition with this one exception: they lack the features of a por celain lining. How to over come this without going to the expense of getting a new tub, has been a question that has worried a great many. One pot ot our WHITE ENAMEL PAINT will do the work, forming as it does a GLOSSY SURFACE, almost equal in hardness and durabil ity to that of porcelain itself, being at the same time hardly distinguishable from porcelain. Consult your physician and he will tell you by all means to paint your bath tub with Enamel Paint. Tho KEYSTONE EGG BEATERS : are little gems. Try one if you want your eggs quickly and thoroughly beaten. We also call your special attention to our economical BARREL and CYLINDER CHURNS, they are easy work ers, have all sizes and prices.
