The Pacific Commercial Advertiser
(tied Every Morning. Except
Sunday, by the
Hawaiian Gazkttk Company
t No. 31H Merchant Hrt.
WALLACE B. FARRINGTOH, EDITOR.
THURSDAY. ; JA3UABY 34,1895,
The Nation, in summing up its
elurring comment on Admiral
Walker's report, says: "All this
certainly makes up an 'astound
ing1 document, as the Washington
despatches gravely call it, and we
agree with Lodge, that to have nad
bo much good laughing matter re
tained 'in the dusty pigeon-holes
of the Navy Department ? would
have been a sin and shame." About
this time the Nation is about to
experience the old adage, that he
laughs best who laughs last. The
policy which the Nation upholds
will, in years to come, be held up
to the ridicule of every American
citizen. When the serious features
have been healed and worn away,
it will be a source of amusement, if
national affairs can drop to that
level, that any sane American
should have lent a voice of com- j
mendation to such acts of imbe
cility as this country has suffered
at the hands of would-be diplo
mats. THE MAN-WHO-KNOWS-IT-ALL.
Unfortunately, there is among
the men who went to the front in,
the recent rebellion, a , class of
citizens which partakes of the
character of the man-who-knows-it-all,
and, like that little-needed in
dividual, is ever present to flaunt
opinions on the street-corners, or,
if so fortunate as to have a news
paper mouthpiece, to bring its
ideas before the public clothed in
language of a more guarded type.
Those who are telling what "we"
will do or "we" wont do if the
Military Commission does or does
not do thus, and bo are displaying
nothing but the shallow foundation
of their mental structure. If they
will stop to think a little, they
must come to know that the main
tenance of the dignity of the Re
public includes the . fair and im
partial trial,' as well as the protec
tion of all prisoners, whether
before a civil court or a court
martial. As the Advertiser
has previously stated, the fate
of the rebels is in good hands.
Neither the personnel or the doings
of the Military Commission are to
be questioned. It is very easy for
one with a smattering of the facts
to stand aloof and inform the pub
lic just how rapidly or in what
order a body in full possession of
each and every . fact, should pro
ceed. This is one of the worst
features with which public officials
have to contend. While to a cer
tain extent it amounts to nothing
it is very much like the yapping
cur, which causes discomfiture
although there is really nothing
very serious connected with its
nresence.
4,
In times like the present it is a
verv eood plan to keep studiously
- - w e
quiet and let the law take its
course.?! Thus far the dignity of
Hawaii has been upheld by a po
licy that has not been marred by
the semblance of a mistake. The
fears of the interference of a for
eign power should a war ship ar
rive during the present trial we
believe, are unfounded. There
has yet to appear an instance
giving an opening for foreign
interference, and this fact is made
positive by the careful conduct of
affairs over which cool and discreet
minds are presiding. There is one,
and only one policy that will carry
this nation through the reefs which
today are threatening, on every
hand, into the clear open where our
ship of state will float serenely for
years to come. That policy is now
being worked out with a success
that will give the names of the men
toward whom the eyes of the world
-are centered, a prominence in his
tory that can never be wiped out
by the pen or tongue of the man-
f I
who-knows-it-all. Should any na
tion eee fit to raise its finger against
the administration of justice, the
people of this country can rest se
cure that the blot is not upon the
fair name of Hawaii-nei. In many
respects the country is beginning
anew. It is better to go slow and
sure, than be obliged to go back
and patch up old sores. Let the
man-who-know8.it.all keep a quiet
tongue in his head.
MORE AMERICAN 0PIHI05S.
We want no more ex parte state
ments from foreign lands: . Who
can estimate the injury inflicted
upon Hawaii and upon this country
bvthe perverse parUzanship otLom
missioner Blount? It is a pleasure,
by the way, to jead the straight
forward and thoroughly American
report of Admiral Walker, who was
in command on the harbor of Ho
nolulu from April until September
of this year. He speaks of the new
Republic in appreciative terms ; ex
presses the fullest confidence in its
ability to stand unless interfered

argument for the constant presence
of an American war vessel in those
waters is in refreshing contrast
with the words in which the haul
ing down of the American flag was
defended in Mr. Blount's report.
Pacific Christian Advocate.
The admiral's condemnation,
though not outspoken, is strong
and uncompromising. The ad
miral seems to hold the conviction
that it is for the interest of the
United States, above all other na
tions, to possess part or the whole
of Hawaii. The Standard, Troy.
It refbcts no credit on the ad
ministration. On the contrary, it
is, in fact, an implied censure, so
far as an officer in Admiral Walk
er's position, acting under hide
bound instructions from his supe
rior officers, dare make. But he
has fearlessly done his duty. The

One of the most noticeable fea

What the people are after
today and all the time is labor
saving machinery. It does not
make any difference what the
line of business is labor-saving
machinery is sought after.
Men whose minds take an in
ventive turn put the energies
in this direction more than any
other, the manufacturers de
mand it and the inventors are
trying to fill the demand. We
have among our goods prob
ably a hundred different arti
cles designed for this purpose.
Among the most important of
these are the implements used
in the cultivation of sugarcane
land. Take first the Fertilizer
Distributor, a machine worked
by one man that will distribute
the fertilizer over nine acres
of land in one day. It not
only saves labor but it does
the work more thoroughly and
with absolutely no waste of
material. Our orders lor this
article have exceeded the de
mand and we have been obli
ged to order more. The Cane
Cultivators from the same
factory are recognized on Ha
waii to be much superior to
anything of the kind ever used
here. Ihese implements are
not experiments, they have
been used for a lone: time in
Louisiana where they have
given great satisfaction.
The Wertheim Duplex Sew
ing machine is more of a labor
saver than any other make,
because it does a greater
variety of work. Every lady
knows the trouble it is to sew
ruffles, and that a machine that
wttl sew just what is necessary
for ruffles is not the stitch that
answers for making boys
trp.users. It's a labor saver
that: , will sew both and the
Wertheim is the.only one that
i&ill., . It not only, . sews . the
chain and lock stitch, but it
makes a combination of both
that is as pretty an embroidery
stitch as you want to see. We
have a number of these
machines in various styles of
finish, the highest priced one
is cheaper than you can get
an ordinary machine for. You
save money and save labor in
getting a Wertheim.
These occasional rains cause
havoc with the water by mak
ing it muddy and impure. We
have been selling the Improved
Stone Filter which makes it as
clear as a crystal. There is
another and very celebrated
filter called the "Pasteur."
We have made arrangements
for handling this article which
is exclusively used in public
institutions, places of business
and private houses in the
United States. One of them
has been placed in the Queen's
Hospital and after a careful
test in filtering muddy water,
milk and oil combined, a
Honolulu physician says:
"I have examined the 'Pasteur
Filter manufactured by the Pasteur
Chamberland Company. I consider it
the most efficient filter I have ever
seen."
These filters are rented to
persons or sold outright as
preferred. Parties desiring to
examine one can communicate
with us and Mr. H. L. Theron
will call upon them at their
residence or place of business
and thoroughly explain the
working of it. We expect a
large business in this article
and from testimonials we have
examined we have no hesita
tion in guaranteeing it to be a
superior article.
Our stock of hanging lamps
for people who do not use
electric lights (as well as those
who do) is as complete as any
to be found in Honolulu. Our
island trade in this respect is
so large that we are obliged
to keep our stock up in order
to supply it.

There are a great many
homes having zinc-lined bath
tubs that are in good condition
witir 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 SUBFACE, 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
