In general it may be said that a nation looks upon its foreign min isters as representatives of sister nations stationed at the capitol to transact such diplomatic business as it may be necessary to perform. The foreign minister is the working arm, so to speak, of the body of people from whom he derives his power, and to whom, as a resident among those people, he claims alle giance. Outside the usual routine of his office, the foreign minister is looked ppon to Bee to it, not only that his flag is respected, but to keep a careful watch over the liv.es and property of his fellow citizens who may have eeen fit to cast their lot within the confines of the coun try where he is stationed. In his personality is condensed the dig nity, the diplomacy, the business and commercial interests of a na tion. i It is a position of no Bmall moment and c ilia for ' a ' man of discerning, well-balanced and care ful mind.. . ''. In event of the threatening of any of the personal or national interests he represents, the foreign minister is in duty bound to make his personality as prominent as possible and bring to bear all the .'dignity and diplomacy which he represents to protect those inter- ests. . So far as the internal affairs of the country do not directly con " cern him or his people, however, it is his business to keep as far in the background as he knows how, not attempting or having the ap pearance of attempting to influence the action of public men. In short it is manifestly his business to keep out, thoroughly and com pletely out of local politics, or legal and legislative proceedings never taking advantage of the fact that he is the resident figure head of an overpowering nation, to embarass or have the semblance of embarass ing the action of men whom he hss every reason to believe are con ducting political or judicial affairs with proper deliberation and fol lowing the dictates of the national conscience they represent. It is not his business to dabble in local politics or go so far as to clothe himself with the dignity of his nation and give expression to ner eonal views before the cabinetW any other officials of the Govern ment. When a foreign minister lowers his dignity to this point it becomes a question whether or not his recall would not be for the best interests of his home government and that within which he la exercising the powers delegated to him. MR. CLEVELAND'S ORDERS. While President Cleveland has seen fit to send a man-of-war to this port he has couched his in structions in such words as to make, so far as possible, the com mander of the ship's forces as pow erless to act as possible. He has told Rear Admiral Beardslee to come to this port and look on while American citizens sell their lives if necessary to protect the property of men who cast ballots in and claim allegiance t to the United States ; he is practically to act in the capacity of a nonenity eo far as within him liep. He is to sit quietly in his cabin and fid dle if such amusement suits, his fancv. while a cm-crazed, rebel ap plies the torch to the house of his brother American, provided the owner of that house is fighting in the field. r : If the owner sits quietly at home and cava or does nothing, the Admiral is to land his forces.'sur round the house and keep the in cendiary at proper distance. Should the adjoining dwelling be in flames and the American's house threat en'ed thereby the Admiral has only to say,' "God help you; the United Seates.won't.V. Supposing the Admiral has MOO men and there are 100 houses in different sections of the city to protect? Naturally if he follows out the spirit of rresi dent Cleveland's orders, he is to de tail one man to a house and let mob law, or any other law that may arise, take its course and say or do nothing. The absurdity of this method of procedure is only ea nailed br the narrow-minded, un paralleled spirit displayed by Pres ident Cleveland's instructions. If there is any nation in the world from which the supporters of this Republic, the majority of whom are Americans, has well-founded reason to expect moral and physi cal aid and support, that nation is the United States. Congress knows it. the American people know it but President Cleveland's diplo matic eyesight has become bo Ben- ously dimmed by the dazzling per sonality of Liliuokalani that he can see nothing but the wreck of his pet schenae7and has acted ac cordingly. We do not anticipate that Admiral Beardslee will be called dpon to exercise protection over American person or property, but should the emergency arise, we believe he would conduct himself as a loyal American citizen,' 'and not as one anxious to interpjre.tne spirit of orders by reading between thellnW- '-L " ,:: ' ; tnxtixm STcIra.

LAW All AN GAZETTfC COMPANY. 38'58-tl finely 6opie5 January 30, i8g5. Tfie necessity for a revenue cutter for Honolulu and vicin ity has been materially felt during the past few weeks more than ever before. Nor will the feeling , die out while opium is contraband. 'Scarce ly a week passes - but .what some "long, low;-rakish craft" is sighted off the islands by officers of the island steamers and the next'we; hear, is that opium has - fallen in price.' Nearly every one oeiieves xnai a revenue cutter would be a factor in reducing the quantity of the drug landed on these snores. It has long been said that if opium may be landed other -things could be; from disclosures recently made the opinion may be changed to read: "if arms can be landed opium can." With a revenue cutter capable of making 12 knots an hour, there's no rea son why, with the amount of information the Government receives from men at the coast, regarding the shipment of opium into this district, that the traffic could not be check ed. There could be no "job" in providing for such a depart ment . because it could be let out on tenders, and the best bid accepted. There is no necessity for a large steamer, it would only be in the way, something about the size of and on the same lines as the Iwalani would answer the pur pose admirably. Besides be ing used as a patrol it would be ready at all times for such emergencies as have been felt for a steamer during the past year or so. The Government r a . 1 1 has naa to pay considerate money to transportation com panies for steamers, and this sum could . have been . saved tKe'iGbvernmerit if it :had own ed a cutter. If Necker island should be used as a cable station, there may be other occasions when a vessel of this character may be needed. Did you ever see such a collection of beautiful pieces of Haviland China as we show in our window this week? Just examine the decorations and see their character! Oyster plates with delicate sprays of forget-me-nots twined in beautiful combinations of old gold and smylax around the edges. If you are giving a dinner your table will look better, and you will still more win the admiration of your guests if you have the dishes to set it with. If you will notice the illustrations in any of the magazines showing interiors of fine dwellings you will see on all the dressing tables pictures of a half jflozen bits of China on a tray. These are known as Boudoir Sets and contain 11 pieces. We have them in chrysanthemum and Marguerite patterns, and sell them at $4.50. They con tain boxes for puffs, pins and all sorts of things used on a dressing case. Another pretty set is called "Solitaire" and is designed for the use of one person. It contains a sugar bowl, creamer, teapot and cup and saucer on a very pretty tray. They are decorated in really exquisite designs. The dinner set shown in the upper window of our store is the handsomest in Haviland we have ever had. It contains 156 pieces and is rather differ ent in design from anything we have ever imported. The decorations are in pure gold in a sort of scroll design. The coffee cups both large and small, are very pretty in shape, as are the rest of the dishes. This set is especially commended to people who entertain and who want a proper outfit for their tables. The Hawaiian Hardware Co.
