The falling of the wall of the opera honse ruins puta an end to the idea of rebuilding upon the old framework. The proposition of a military officer that the opera house lot be cleared and made a part of the Executive building equare is worthy of attention. . , EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE. There is a time to eat and a time to sleep, a time to fight and a time to take up the plow, a time to pass resolutions and a time not to paea resolutions. While we appre ciate the feeling of the many loyal members of the community that the Government should not keep in its employ men whose disposition toward the existing rule is open to serious question, we . bold that the propriety of a mandatory resolu tion passed by a military company at' the present ' time is a matter worthy of thoughtful ' study. We believe there was nothing dictato rial intended in the expression of opinion made by Company D,' yet a resolution passed by the unanimous vote of a military company might be interpreted in a different manner by. t those bo dis posed. It behooves the community to beware of possibilities both here and abroad. The Government will undoubtedly ferret out each and every one , of ita, enemies, and no one ia Abetter able to decide when and how thi8 ia to bo done than the officials themselves. There are plenty of methods open 'to let the Government know the spirit of the military other than resolutions, and wVwould recommend careful con sideration before organizations make haste to put their sentiments before the public. THE BURDEN 0? RESPONSIBILITY. The recent revolt, bo far as it was open and armed, was quickly suppressed, but pending investiga tions disclose the fact that the agencies which created it are still at work and menace the peace, and justify the present course of the authorities. We are yet in day a of grave anxiety as to the future, so far as it may be influ enced or shaped by the pending punishments for treason, and mis prision of treason. We do not, and cannot, comment on the pro ceedings of the court martial.' But we are free to express our concern, and the concern of responsible men, in the politic and just di8p sitioh of the fate of the revoUere. We must carefully look to oar own safety, hewafteranjJV we must, also, keep- In Tawrf'tnit We are, 0J58'to circumstances, on trial kzfyYe the worlds Any error now committed may seriously afreet us While citizens are expressing conflicting views on this subject, and are rather impatient with each others opinions, 'they must not for get that the solemn responsibility of decision is upon the Govern ment, and it cannot be shifted. If, hereafter, in cooler moments, it should be conceded that there has been an error of judgment in the matter, it is not the citizen who has no immediate responsibility in the case, who will be censured. In the event of error,- he will not stand up and take the blame, but will only be too Bwift to say that "the Government should have acted "with more wisdom." The final opinion of a commun ity is usually correct, but, before it reaches that conclusion, there is much wobbling, ill-advised and in judicious talk. The acts of com munities, done in moments of ex citement, are the blunders of his tory. Men and women run about crying out,t,We must do so and so," aa if the solemn responsibility of doing it was cast on them. There ia but one course' to pur sue. A Government exists which must dispose of the matter. It must be sustained, even if it makes an error, provided it acta honestly. Let the man who preaches "ven geance," and the man who preaches "forgiveness," leave the issue to those who have the serious, sad and thankless task of deciding the matter. The best and safest senti ment we can hold is that the Gov ernment must be sustained, what ever its conclusions are. These are not the times for falling out of line. OUTSPOKEN PRINCIPLE IS RESPECTED. Thomas C. Piatt, of New York, better known as "Boea" Piatt, the great I-am of the Empire State, has called down an avalanche of criti cism upon his head through the issuance of a letter to the rural Republican editors of the State in which he maps out a policy for them to pursue for the laudation of the Republican party, the belittling of Dr. Parkburst's efforts, and more particularly the protection of T. C. Piatt from the epithet of a political boss. It has not taken very long for Mr. Piatt to discover that this method of dealing with and influencing .editorial opinions is not attended with signal success. The aversion to wire-pullers in New York State has not been en tirely confined to one party and Mr. Piatt touched an unfortunate spring when he tried to turn the reflectors of public opinion in order to cast a disparaging light upon Dr. Parkhuret and his work ; in other words, to put into the mouths of editors inclined toward Republi canism, what he dare not openly express himself. ' The whole world admires a man of principle, one who will not stoop to playing into an opponent's win ning hand just so long as he can make use of that winning hand to keep his own interests well protected. He who fights in the open, backed by the courage of his own convictions com mands the ready support of frienda and the respect, to say the least, of his foea. Nothing is more disgusting to the true democratic 'spirit' of a' republican'form of gov ernment than the man whose faint hearted fear pf possibly being on the losing side leads him to put out political feelers to do the disagree- ble work, while he, well guarded in the rear, pulls the wires, prepared to desert hia best friend should public opinion . for the time being go contrary to his sentiments. Money and. a political pull, irre spective of principle, carry weight for a time, but honesty of purpose is bound to come to the front. The politician loses in the end who, once his ambition ia attained, tarns to cast discredijt on the source of his i success. r The Republicans of New' Yor: city, to say the least, woiitci now. be -in the doldrums of defeat but for the campaign of purification inaugurated by . Dr. Parkhurst. , While we can appre ciate a man's desire to outwardly keep himself solid with both the opposition and the followers through whom he holds his power, it ia not an attitude whose path is paved with strictest honor.

The press, voicing the senti ments of the theatre-going people, is crying for a new opera house, now that the old one that stood idle month in and month out, is gone they want a place of amusement. There's nothing like being de prived of a thing to make people feel they must have it. But where is the money to come from? The people here who have money to spare are not those who build theatres or anything else through pub lic spiritedness, there must be in sight some return for the investment and none can be seen in the theatre project. It is pretty well understood that the old opera house was an expense of about two thousand dollars7 a year to its owners with an offset of about $1500 per year for rentals. Not much money in the invest ment is there? Americans will tell you that there is not a city the size of Honolulu any where in the West but what has its opera house and two or three electric railway lines, but if you ask who built them you will learn that it . was through the energy and enterprise of men who had corner lots and outside property for sale. Honolulu is one place on the map that f has not had, and probably, never will have, . a real estate boom; its "just a stiddy growth." An opera house will not bring any better returns in Honolulu than would an ice factory at. the North Pole and the people who want one . built know it How many people are there in Honolulu that would subscribe a thousand dollars each toward building one? Not a dozen outside the editors of the news papers; but show an invest ment that will bring them a guaranteed return of 25 per cent, and they would tumble over each other to put their names down on the subscrip tion list. If you are thinking about painting your house you can do nothing better than exam ine our cards showing colors of Hendry's Ready Mixed Paints. You can find in the assortment, just what you need for either inside or out side work, and you can get more satisfactory results than if you bought white lead and oil and mixed you own colors. The pigment in our mixed paints is the best that can be found anywhere; the lead is just lead, and the zinc is pure zinc. You get no whiting and oil in our compounds. These mixed paints will stand the wear and tear of this climate better than any other paint manufactured. . We simply ask you to try them and see that our statements regarding the quality of the paint are not exaggerated. Solid silverware is almost as much in demand as it was Christmas time it is useful twelve months in the year and just as acceptable to your wife as it was two months ago. Our stock is kept filled up at all times so that we can supply any demand made upon us. The Haviland China we show you is rather better than anything we have ever shown before; the designs are differ ent and probably more inviting to persons who have a pen chant for fine China. We will be pleased to furnish prices on application. WE DO IT! What 1 WE FIT 1st, The Eye; 2d, The Foot; 3d, The Purse. WHAT ELSE CAN YOU EXPECT ? McINEENT'S SHOE STORE. H.F.WIGflfllN Fort . Street.

JUST A FEW WOKDS on a subject which we know will interest every one: For years we have done tbe fine watch repairing In Honolnln. ...... Difficult work of every description which had formerly been sent to the Coast, was first properly handled in our Repairing Department.- Quch-work aa CHANGING KEY TO STEM WINDERS repairing complicated watches of every description; demagnetizing; making by hand any lost part of a complicated watch; in fact any difficult work pertain ing to the repairing of fine watches is our especial forte. ' The number of watches which find their way into our Repairing Department after bavins been through the hands of numerous EXPERTS (?) is beyond belief. Whilst we are at all times ready and willing to do every conceiv ab'e kind and condition of a job would it not pay you better to bring your watch to us in the first place and be assured of an honest amount of work at a reasonable price, rather than take it from one to another, causing you delay and annoyance, to say nothing of the greater expense? We Charge Less For Perfect Work than you have been used to paying for inferior work right along. As a matter of f act.the expert( ?) who cleans your watch with a pair of bellows and a crow-bar for 50 cents makes more money than the honest workman who does an honest job and charges an honest price. . Because your watch is returned to you running fairly well, it is no criterion that it has been properly repaired. The great annoyance attendant upon the repair ing of a watch, is that 09 out of 93 cannot tell if the work is well done but are satisfied if the watch is keeping some where near the correct time. Who can see the jewel protruding half way out of the plate, or worse, sunk down through the. plate, fastened in with. a little glue, or hammered in with a sledjze. tlow otten the xxpkbt grinds on the broken staff, sinks the jewel a little lower, tells you he has put in a new ?taff and charges you alitile less than the price and you po on your way rejoic ing. But some day you will discover the fraud, euch work cannot last long. It is dear at any price, which you soon dis cover to your sorrow. Moral: Make no mistake; take it where you know it will be well treated and that is the Repairing Department of H. F. WIOmiAN. Something New. I have just returned from tht Coast and have opened up a complete stock of Groceries. Everything and anything from sugar to the choicest of luxuries. My motto is to give VALUE FOR VALUE.
