he Pacific Commercial Advertiser Every Moifilnj. Except Siriiy. y 1 1 A VV'AIIAN r.AZKTTK COMPANY WALLACE R. PABEXSQTOS, EDIT0B TUESDAY. : FEBRUARY 20, 1885, C03TSFIBACY HATCHING PROVKT. On the 17th day ok-November last the Advertiser published the details, at leDgth, of a conepiracy for the overthrow of the Govern ment. It w&a not generally cred ited in this community, and an evening paper was quite swift to pronounce it a 4 fake. Recent events, however, enow that the etatement was substan tially true, and that the Attorney General and the Marshal were jus tified in giving it credit, to a certain extent. The natne3 of the conspirators were, purposely, not given by the Advertiser, but recent revelations prove that the author of the state ment was correct in his declaration of names. The account of a meeting at San Souci, about September 1st, was correctly given, and a majority of the persons present are now con victed and are in stripes. The conspiracy covered the plan of sending men to San Francisco for the purchase of arms and ammuni tion, in November, and it was stated in the meetings that one or more prominent men of this city, identified with the royalist cause, would liberally contribute money for that purpose. The con fession of any one of the persons present would, just now, make highly interesting reading, espe cially the report of the transactions of the "committee on armament," and the replies they received. Soon after, several persons con nected with the business left for the Coast. A communication from one of them fell into the wrong hands, and throws some light on the subject. Perhaps Mr. W. H. Cornwell, who is in San Francisco, may be in a position to make an extremely interesting statement on the subject of the ways and means of overturning the Republic. We are not disputing, for a moment, his innocence of any evil intent toward this Government, but he may have, accidentally, some information which will aid those engaged in hiitorical re searches. The plan of attack agreed upon by the conspirators, included the landing of arms at Sans Souci, and the arming of men at that point. How far this plan of attack was a part of the final plan, carried out on January 6th, of this year, has not yet been settled. There ap pears to have been several "storm centers" of revolt. But they were connected more or less. It was perhaps natural that the public did not take much stock in the revelations published in the Advertiser. This paper regarded the etatement as substantially cor rect, but did not believe that any overt acts would be committed. It did not believe the natives, of themselves, would rise. Events folly justify this belief. It be lieved that white men, of ordinary intelligence, would not take risks with the odds' so greatly against them. They did, however, and the sin gular fact is now apparent that many of the white men are in diffi culty because they did not kuow of a simple proposition of law, that knowledge of a crime is in iteelfa crime. They intended to take the royalist chestnuts out of the fire with the paw 8 of the poor kanaka. But they failed to see that the hands which held the paws were covered with the cuiit that smirched the paws. LESSONS OP THE ELBE TRAGEDY. It is a fact, strange, but none the true, that the average commu does not rise to a sense of the daver to which its members may tima tinti! unm errat rnlam- o - .-...-uy "a and strikes near home. We of the nineteenth century are wont to glory over the progress in art, science and the comforts of life generally; the rapidity of travel and the safety attending our going and coming, due to new im provements, and yet hardly a year goes by that does not add some new horror to the list of catas trophes that demonstrates how incomplete are our most trust worthy safeguards in construction and how necessary is eternal vigi lance on the part of the great car riers to assure a comfortable degree of safety to the patronizing public. The ruthlees destruction of hu man life caused by the sinking of the Elbe brings to mind that the non-sinkable ship has yet to be constructed, the water-tight com partments proving of little avail on this occasion ; that the average ship's crew as now made up, is not to be depended upon to look to the eafety of anyone but tbem?elves in time of danger, and that in conse quence of improvements in con struction the tendency is to belittle the recognized value of properly manned boats and life-rafts. The ship's crew, outside the officers of course, which one sees on the ocean steamere, i3 made up practically the scum of the earth, picked up here and there, driftwood of human ity. The story of the Elbe horror shows that the passengers obeyed the orders of the officers, and the crew did not, looking only to save their own lives. How often do ocean travelers watch a farcical boat drill and know only too well that in many an instance the boats are practically bound to the davit blocks by mst, and, on touching the water, stand a good chance of being unseaworthy. Simply be cause no serious accident has hap pened in which the inefficiency of men and boats was shown, for many years, is no criterion for rele gating this form of preserving life to the position of a mere ornament, or sentimental necessity of the steamer's make-up. Familiaritybreed8 contempt, to be surej but the great corporations holding thousands of lives and the happiness of hundreds of homes in their hands, cannot afford to wink at the dangers forever attending ocean travel. They cannot afford to man their 6hips with irrespon sible seamen, or send out small craft like the Crathie that are more to be feared than floating wrecks or icebergs. There is a point be yond which the public will cease to be long-suffering and kind ; when the traveler will refuse to trust, his chances of life or death to a shin's crew utterly devoid of moral or physical courage VOICE OP THE PRESS. Mrs. Dominis was a little slow in waking up to the fact that she bad the hot end of the pcepter. Wash ington Star. The construction of the Nicara gua canal and the annexation of Hawaii are neceseary to one an other, and both are necessary to us. S. F. Call. Grover Cleveland and Walter Q. Greaham have not been in Hawaii, but they have a right to count themselves among the conspirators in favor of Liliuokalani, whose re cent effort to restore her majesty to the throne ha8 -proved a failure. N. Y. Sun. The Times, always anxious to discover the worst motive, intimates that there ia a Maine job in the Hawaiian uproar. Nonsense. It is nothing worse than childish silli ness provoked by Mr. Cleveland's former spitefulness toward a batch of Maine's favorite sons. Let the silliness proceed j it is better than currency tinkering.

For all the blood thut has been shed, for every peril to which civ ilization has b-en subjected, for the shame and horror which this country has been made to feel, and for any evil consequences that may follow thia last outbreak in Hawaii, Mr. Cleveland j8 directly responsible, and will be so held by enlightened public opinion every where. New York Tribune Jimiy 5opie5 February 26 , :Sg5. Thre has been a drad in the minds of some people here during the past two or three years, that the British Lion would put its paw on the Islands, and force people to be Britons when they wanted to be something else, anything else in fact than citizens of an independent government. If we draw the correct inference from the dispatches received by the Warrimoo, England will act in concert with the United States in so far as any Hawaiian policy is concerned. Metaphorically speaking the Lion and the Eagle will roost on the same tree and from an exalted perch will watch their respective subjects on Hawaii with their usual care. The strangest part of it all appears to be in the fact that England will do in the matter of politic al prisoners just what the United States does; which, on the score of age at least, looks very much like the tail wagg ing the dog. There are windmills and windmills, some of them re volve in the wind and some require the assistance of a steam engine. You can find both kinds in this country' but the Aermotor is the one that goes with the wind. You take the sort that is erected on the Insane Asylum grounds and the wind" has very little effect upon it; that's the kind that requires the assistance of a steam engine. Look at the one a little further on at Kamehameha school or yet a little further still at Luther Wilcox's poi plantation and you find Aermotors that run in light winds or heavy, and pay the owners a good re turn for adopting something modern. We sell Aermotors, lots of them, and the people who use them are satisfied; people who use other makes of windmills are not. Among the good things for sugar planters nothing is bet ter than the sugar land imple ments we are selling. Take the cane land Cultivators for instance, we have sold a number of these to Hawaiian planters, and have even ship ped them to New Zealand, where they are used with the greatest satisfaction. The Fertilizer Distributor, in this same line of implements.is one of the best things a manager can have on a plantation be cause it saves both labor and material. One man with one of these distributors can ac complish in one day the work of nine men and save money besides in material. "Another equally good ma chine is the Stubble Digger, also in use on most of the plantations on Hawaii, where it is giving the planters more joy than they have ever before experienced from the use of an agricultural implement. We have a large stock of these articles and we expect to sell them. Planters are be ginning to realize that they cannot afford to do without them.

Hinds: ' Sib: 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 waa stung by a wasp on the top of his fiDger. While waiting for some one to bring Pond's Extract, I put the ringer in the neck of a bottle of "Cream." The pain stopped instantly, and with big tears on his cheeks tbe little fellow said, "I want to kiss the man who gave me that bottle." I have since used it for bites of mos quitos and other insects with equal success. I would be glad for others to have the benefits of my experience. Yours, etc., GEKTRUDE HAMILTON. BY DRUG GO.
