The Pacific Commercial Advertiser 1ul B-rery Morning, Exept Sunday, by th Hawaiian Gazette Company At No. 31 Merchant Btrt. WALLACE B. FARRINGTON, EDITOR. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1895. The calling of an extra session ofCongreBa will be looked upon with favor in this country. The incoming body will undoubtedly be strongly opposed to a policy of indifference towards these islands, and though the annexation move ment might not be pushed to com pletion, the question would be kept alive and the way made clear for more positive action at a later day. Now Hawaii is being looked to as an aesistant in solving the race problem of the Southern States. The proposed scheme of shipping the superfluous negro population to this country is at once novel and impracticable. The race problem of this country is already suffici ently complicated without dump ing a crowd of irresponsible negroes on our shore 8, notwithstanding "the climate is similar to that of the South, and the. conditions, of life would not necessitate a material change." Possibly we should feel deeply honored with being regarded as. able to solve a problem that is puzzling the brains, of a much larger and more powerful Bepublic,but the crown will certainly have to be, re fused on this occasion. This is a form of clorv not Bouent lor in Hawaii. &CIZ3C2 IN RUMORS. No better locality for studying the possibilities of rumors, has. ever been oil ere d than Honolulu since the fifth day of January. The ru morer has become quitela necessa ry factor in the daily life of the community and his business has " m m -'mm virtually simmered down to a sci ence, though what position it takes in the long line of scientific re- eearch has yet to be determined. Webster fails to give any defini- uon that iust hts the case, but as that learned gentleman, so far as we are able to learn, did not have the benefit of a trip to Hawaii it is not surprising that he skipped this very important feature of his dic tionary. Hence the advocate of the new science may be forgiven if he manufactures a few words the derivation of which Noah Webster is not responsible. iumoroiogy is in reality an ap plied science a knowledge of pos sibilities, generalities and wind falls as explained, accounted for or I accomplished fact.

Some one's been lying." And though Johnny's drum was a concoction of his own brain he continues to be lieve until he is some years older that "eomeone lied" about his drum. There were not a few Honolulu people at the wharf Friday, who can sympathize with Johnny Jones and his drum ; not a few who, like the woman convinced against her will, are of the same opinion still. Although they can hardly believe their senses, after what has "been heard" and from such avowedly "straight" sources, the fact still re mains as proven by the honorable statements of honorable officials that the Government at no time had any idea of deporting Carl Widemannor Willie Greig. The work of the rumorologist was well performed, and the public handled his material in such a manner as to make his claim for the right of rumorology to a position in the list of sciences, a hard one to answer. A rumor is sometimes a good thing to let a man find out how he would act in case of the fact. He has time to reflect and guard against doing anything rash the next time. A REPUBLICAN OPINION. The San Francisco Chronicle, after reviewing the. history of the United States in its Hawaiian pol- icy, taKes tne iouowxng cuiwnw view of the situation as it appears i today : The actions of the President and Kfvretarv Gresham since the news came of the royalist uprising would be amusine if they were not so con temptible. They did not dare to resist nubile oDlnlon any longer, and orders were issued at once for thePhiladel -nhla to reualr to Honolulu. It must have been calline to them. The; cannot but know that the country will recall the earnest. warning of Admiral Walker and the words that have been uttered in the Senate. Still it had to b done. If the Philadelphia had not been "ordered to sail at once there would have been a storm of indigna tion that would have forced Congress to act in some manner. But now comes another semi-official explanation from the White House. apparently sent out for the purpose, at lease witn tne none, oi oreajKinir ue force of the public criticism of the course of Cleveland and Gresham. The vessel is sent to Honolulu, the President says, not because there has been any change In the policy of the administration, nor because there seems to be any Imminent necessity, but only as a precautionary measure for the protection of American resi dents. "All who take any interest in the question," says Mr. Cleveland, snould keep m view, tnat Hawaii is entirely independent of us. and . that in its relation' to us it is a foreign country." Thereupon he makes pub lic the instructions sent by Gresham to Admiral Beardslee and to Minister Willis. The whole of these instruc tions may be summed up in the word non-intervention. The. disgraceful inconsistency of these absurd pretensions is seen at once, when the course of the President and Mr. Gresham toward the Provi sional Government of Hawaii is re called. When Cleveland was inaugu rated there had been a revolution in the islands. The revolution was an "What? WE FIT ist, The Eye; 2d, The Foot; 3d, The Purse. Johnny Jones, whose heart is set on a drum for a Christmas present. He first starts with the desire to have something on which he may pound and make a noise like other boys. Thisd esire soon becomes so thor oughly a part of his make-up that the poor child is possessed of a feeling that he certainly will have a drum and immediately sets off to tell his playmates Tom, Dick and Harry, how he'll make his deaf grandmother's ears ring after Christmas. Tom, Dick and Harry go to their respective homes and announce that "Grandma Jones' ears will ring," "Grandma Jones has rings in her ears," or There is to be a new drum in the Jones house." These stories are hashed and reha3hed in the various houees of the vicinity until Tommy's mother goes to Johnny's mother and Johnny listening behind the door is made happy by the remark, "Mrs Jones, your Johnny is to have a drum for Christmas." Now Johnny's hope has become a knowledge and finally when on Christmas day no drum appears, he declines to believe his senses and stoutly holds to tho thought waiian policy of President Cleveland. Jimly 5opie5 February 4, i8g5. The outlook for the sugar industry in the United States is at least blue and how it is to be made brighter is beyond the ken of the average man. The nation cries out against any further tariff tinkering, the farmer uses his voice against the bounty and the sugar pro ducer of Louisiana has grown hoarse in denouncing free sugar as an insult to American industries. Verily the pro ducer and the legislator are between "the devil and the deep blue sea." Nor is sugar the only staple that is sailing in troubled waters; closely allied to it is the meat industry, between the United States and Europe there has been a sort of interchange of commercial relations that has been consid ered, generally, mutually satis factory, but, .if the United States will not sweeten its coffee with German sugar Uncle Sam cannot expect Uncle Fritz to gorge himself on American spareribs. Ia this instance retaliation works harder on the United States than it does on Europe. How long, can. the American pro ducer continue selling sugar at a half cent a pound under cost of making?

A street car fitted with ball bearings was drawn a distance of several hundred feet by men pulling on the three strands of or dinary sewing thread. A carriage manufacturer put another style of ball bearings on the axles of a coach ordi narily pulled by four horses. A trained dog was hitched to the pole, and he drew the coach around the yard with little effort. Daily Bulletin. Our Imperial Bali-Bearing Axles can be adjusted to any Carriage or Hack.
