The Pacific Commercial Advertiser Xmmumti Kvary Monwnj. Except Sunday. y the Hawaiian ISazettk Company l No. 31K Merchant Street. WALLACE R. FABBISQTOS, EDITOR. MONDAY. : FEBRUARY 25, 1S55. After the expert liar through telling storied about Ha waii and its rebellion, in American papers, some newspaperman can make a new and interesting story on the truth of the incidents that have been bo thoroughly distorted. f President Cleveland says Lili- uokalani has Deen uupeu. anu uc never sen her a preeent that he knows ofy The mystery now is just whav position Mrs. Dominis does hold in Mr. Cleveland's heart of hearts. His statement in con nection with the diary entry would seem to indicate that they are not even on friendly terms. INVESTIGATE PROPERLY. . . t j While we do not question the honesty of purpose of the commit tees spending their time compar ing the Government payrolls and the membership of the military organizations, we do question the method of getting at the pur ported object of their work the ferreting out of disloyal employees. It is not fair to suppose that heads of departments want men about them who would turn them over to the enemy if the opportunity offered, and if reporting for duty en or before Monday morning, Jan uary 7th, verifies a man's loyalty, then the Cabinet officers and the Marshal are by all means the pro per persons to make up a list of who reported for duty and who is deserving of a continued position under the Government. The mili tary organizations ought to give Government officials the credit of knowing what they are- about, and we would suggest that the best method of getting at the matter so that no injustice should be done would have been to determine be yond the shadow of a doubt who was loyal and who was not, and then go ahead with the weeding process. There are men, whose names appear on the list made Saturday night, who reported for duty early Monday morning. Possibly, they were not given arms because there were not enough guns to go around, or be cause, as eome claim, the officials c had reasons." Simply calling a man, who reported at the police station or the Executive Building Monday morning but was not put on duty, 'a bloody Royalist," is not sufficient cause for the dis- miesai of a Government employee. If the officials "had reasons," they would doubtless have said so ; if there were not enough guns to arm the men, most certainly they are not to be.blamed for that. It is perfectly proper to have the matter investigated, if the public eee.ti but it is good policy to pur sue methods free from the probable criticisms of disinterested parties with whom it is desirous the coun try should remain on friendly terms. LET US BE SATISFIED. The final sentences, passed on Saturday, upon those in revolt against the Republic, closes an other chapter of these times. In refraining from enforcing the death penalty, the Government has acted wisely, under all of the circumstan ces. It was not a question of right or wrong only which was involved, of sufficient or insufficient punish ment, but it involved a most ser ious question of policy, of maintain ing ourselves here, and retaining our moral strength abroad. On the whole, it wa3 better to run some risk, through clemency to the reb els, than peril our friendly relations with leading men in the States. At the same time, it does not at all follow, that capital punishment would have secured for ue, what we expect it would. There is little analogy between private and polit ical crimes. The motives which lie behind revolutions, are usually of a stronger and higher character than the motives which lead to simple murder. Men Actuated by a sense of patriotic justice, win , take great risks. Even those who , revolt from selfish motives are in fluenced not so much by a fear of punishment, as by the hope of suc cese. If another revolt be proposed here, the men who are asked to join in it will consent to it, if they be lieve it will succeed. In the South American States, revolutionists are shot at once. It has little effect. Another pet of them soon arise, and take their chances. The safeguards of the country are in weeding out troublesome men, seditious talking men and adventurers, and also, in convinc ing the turbulent that revolts can not eucceed. The future here is made secure, vastly more by the acts of the military forces, during the trials following the uprising, than by the punishment. It convinced many, who were in doubt about the powers of the Republic, that it was all sufficient for itself. Extended investigation shows this extraordinary and curious fact, that the leaders of the revolt be lieved that the Citizens' Guard would not appear. It did, how ever,, and put at rest that question. There is more to be said, hereafter, on this point. The natives and some of the royalists believed, de voutedly, that the "missionaries" were cowards. They have gone to school and learned a more whole some lesson, perhaps, than one to be spelled out of the spectacle of men hanging on a gibbet. Let us be contented with the action of the Government. It was burdened with the responsibility, and even if there has been some error in its judgment, this is no time for filling the political air with conflicting opinions about its acts. dtuticn Salts.

Atlerti 73 cents a OIL Jimiy 5opie5 reonsary JJ, Thf 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 dollars a year to its owners with an offset of about $1500 per year for rentals. Not much monev 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 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 bupt, 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.

Hinds: Sir: I have discovered a virtue in your "Honey and Almond Cream," not mentioned in the book attached to the case. My four year old boy was stung by a wasp on the top of his fiDger. While waiting for some one to bring Pond's Extract, I put the linger in the neck of a bottle of "Cream." The pain stopped initanUgt and with big tears on his cheeks the little fellow said, "I want to kiss'the man who gave me that bottle." I have since nsed it for bites of moa quitos and other insects with equal success. I would be glad for others to have the benefits of my experience. Yours, etc., GEKTRUDE HAMILTON. CO.
