Eubope has two rulers of two of its most powerful nations who have never been in battle. It Trill lie interesting, to follow. their career and note whether this fact will tend toward a peacablfi settle ment of difficulties, should they arise, or make them more enthusi astic to rush to a trial at arms and a mode of action, the practical features of which they know not of. A writer on the advance made in the naval armament of nations looks with disfavor upon the com petition going on in Europe in the construction of naval vessels and torpedoes, and asks "Where is this thing to end ? " The more effective the armaments are made, the greater is the temptation to .try the temper of the weapon, and it cer tainly is an open question whether or no the improvement -in methods of warfare wUi result; in a' disposi tion to resort to a showof arms. Opera house schemes . are good things to have floating- around j as constant . agitation' will keep the matter before the public and finally result in a decided movement. that amounts to something. Past his tory has proved that an opera house utilized for theatrical performances alone is not a remarkable success in Honolulu. If a building could bej erected which would include offices and stores . as well as a hall with modern appointments the in come would undoubtedly pay a fair interest on the investment. This plan has been carried out success fully im many of the small cities of the State 8, giving ample accommo dation for theaters, the city a good building, and the stockholders good returns. and with a view to strengthening her own national greatness China will adopt more of civilized cus toms than ever before, and this will have a tendency to increase the wants of the people there. It will doubtless be many years before the Chinese will look to Japan as a source of supply when the friendly nations of Hawaii and America are of such comparatively easy access. The importance of this country as a factor in the commercial growth of the Pacific together with the growing prominence of the Islands from the products of their own lands are features of which Americans cannot afford to lose sight They are plums which, unless the United States assumes a more determined attitude than indifferent non-interference, are liable in' the general march of east ern civilization to slip slowly but surely from its overwhelming grasp.

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 o( 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 WHAT ELSE CAN YOU 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.

The importance of the Islands in the commercial life of Cal ifornia is steadily on the in crease as is shown by the custom houce statistics for the years of 1892 and "93, which indicate that 85 per cent, of the export and im port trade is carried on with Pacific Coast ports. During 1892 the ex port trade from San Francisco amounted to $2,610,000, while the imports from this ' country were $7,795,970. In 1893 the exports were $3,016,600 and the imports $ 10,178,014r-an increase in: one year of $406,6W and $2,382,144 respectively.

As a source of supply also this country must occupy a position second only to California situated as it is directly - at the cross roads of the great commercial avenues of the Pacific. Again in the commercial bene fits brought about by the war be tween China and Japan, Hawaii will come in for its full share. China will realize that the great secret of Japan's successes on land and sea is due to that country haying adopted the methods and manners of modern civilization, crt ?rr? a nfT fhA We have received another broken staff, sinks the jewel a little invoice of the laree size Pansv 2!K J.2!i hJL h?,.K' SSl PPAimM Sif llflf P(1 ON Tnrfh.WP?f Stoves.

An experiment with ball bearings was recently made in Canada. 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 waa hitched to the pole and he drew the coach around the yard with little effort. Daily Bulletin. be Our Imperial Ball-Bearing Axles can adjusted to any Carriage or Hack.
