'1UXE PACLFIC COMMKltCIAL ADVERTISES; HOHOIilTIU", FEBRUARY 21, 1895.
The Pacific Commercial Advertiser (u3 Kvery Morning Except Sunday, by th Hawaiian Gazette Company t No. 31 Merchant Street. WALLACE B. PABBI5QT0H, EDITOR. THURSDAY, : FEBRUARY 21, 1895. Senator PinnaBEw's vole with the Democrats on the Hawaiian question haa aroused a veritable hornets' nest in the legislature that re-elected him by practically a unanimous vote. The leaders of the legislature drew up and sent to him strong letters condemning his course as a surrender . of the Re publican party. The Senator will doubtless have reason to remember that "snow-capped peak of flame" in the middle of the Pacific. It is far from beiDg an insignificant feature of his political history. Over 300 lives lost through criminal neglect is the terrible verdict which later reports give in connection with the loss of the steamer Elbe; Although no de finite charge has been made, the fact has not been disputed tKat offi cers of the Bteamer Crathie 'tnew the course of the Elbe, saw the signals of the steamer that clearly had the right of way, and, after making .the breach in the hull, dretr away slightly damaged, the captain giviog the lame- excuse that he "thought' the Elbe had proceeded." Indignation through out Europe is outspoken. Emperor William, of Germany, sent a tele gram to the German Consul ; at London expressing amazement and displeasure that only one woman was rescued from the sinking steamer. The correspondents of Germany and London 'state that while it is not possible to place the responsibility, of the .disaster de finitely, ii will lead to' the' adoption of. more stringent international regulations in the navigation of oretically, practically falls far short of the mark which temper ance enthusiasts seek to represent. This is not caused by a lack of laws. Maine and every other pro hibition State of America have enough temperance legislation to wipe every drop of liquor from each any every hamlet, and place every rumseller behind prison bars for a term of years, that tends to inspire respect for law and order. Naturally the inference is made that the officials are derelict in their duty, but this is not, as a rule, found to be true. The cause of the continuance of liquor-selling in more than one prohibition. State lies in the people who made the law. There are too many promin ent men who favor temperance, talk prohibition and vote for most stringent temperance laws, at the same time keeping wine on their own sideboards. Prohibitionists in the States have almost without exception begun at the wrong end of the line. They have forced strict laws upon the country before the people have been educated to the point of accepting them. The State of Maine exhibits the queer anomaly of men who will vote with all the honesty of purpose imagin able to enforce prohibitory laws, and at the same time buy beer or wines for their own tables from the corner grocery store. For prohibition to prohibit, the spirit of temperance must be culti vated to a degree which approaches, to say the least, the spirit of the laws to be passed. Successful pro hibition will be brought about gradually, gaining here a little and there a little, but steadily gaining, though it may at times seem ex tremely slow. No reform is com pleted in a day. Be sure the repre sentative families are willing to take the wines from their table and: closet before trying to force other classes to turn from thoir cups. The Gottenburg system, pro perly introduced, comes nearer touching the prohibitory spirit of today than any other combination of laws that has thus j far been put into execution.

The general scheme is to impress upon Turkey that theJJnited States will hereafter look after its missionaries and citizens in Armenia with greater care. Meanwhile, Russia and England are looked upon as the nations which, for diplomatic and practical reasons, can best compel a decent government for the Armenians.

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 jour 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 99 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 sledge.
