The Pacific Commercial Adyertiser ... .-'1 Svary M.irnmj, V.x--f.' Hawaiian azkitk Company WALLACE P.. FARRIXOT05, HDITOE. FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 1825. Minister Damon wishes it stated that the credit of establishing the office of customs Appraiser is due Collector - General James li. Castle. The Customs Department, onder Mr. Castle's direction, has been the source of many progres sive ideas, and we anticipate that this is only one of many that will be introduced a the conditions ripen for their promulgation. CULTIVATE INDIVIDUALITY. The development of a new in terest in the natural history of the Hawaiian Islands, of which the competitive exhibition of land shells at the Bishop Museum should be but a preliminary m-ve, is a line of work which must ever have an increasing prominence among the educators of this coun try. The importance of creating ah interest in the natural sciences as applied to this country cannot be dwelt upon too strenuously. Hawaii has an individuality, not withstanding a possible tendency to make all things conform to the methods and examples as furnished by England or America; and to study and cultivate that individuality in a manner which shall lead to a more minute survey of surroundings, is in the hands of thoso today moulding the chil dren's minds. Not only is t'uis true in the na tural fciences, but the general life of the country demands a closer attention to details that must Anally broaden into principles ap plicable to this land as distin guished from any other on the globe." On the youth in the schools today depends the solution of whether tho questions which con front us today be jammed into a conglomerate mass an attempt to force conditions which are not natural or wrought out on a broad basis, which adapts what of the 'lessons learned from the many na tions represented dare suitable to our condition, casting aside certain prejudices of mother countries not amenable, and thereby establishing a perfect, peculiar and peaceable individuality. An interest in Ha waii as Hawaii, its political his tory and its natural history, its particular personality in all things, is a feature which ought to be given a growing importance as the Hawaiian-born Anglo-Saxon, Latin and Asiatic becomes more a factor in directing the affairs of the na tion. ORDER, THE BASIS OF SOCIETY. Experiences and results of the recent political disturbance of tho country have established in many minds the impression that tho day has gone by when a resort to arms will be a means in the future of expressing political opinions and endeavoring to bring about anew order in the direction and conduct of national questions. The su premacy of an English-speaking people in the islands is a foregone conclusion on account of our com mercial relations, if from no other point of view. In a recent issue of the Outlook ia given a very clear statement of facta which must govern every free country to a certain degree, though differing environments must be dealt with in a manner appropriate to each peculiar circumstanco. The writer states that in America, as in every country where laws are founded on the principles of per sonal equality and all questions are open, there are a few things which are settled beyond question, aud which all dUput&nta oiuot take for granted. After fifteen hundred years of the rjuobt thorough political education, the English speaking peoples have learned, first, that .history ia mainly a etruggle be tween clatseg, and progress mainly n continual re.idju.-tment 'f ,l" relations of c'.i-s ; "-condly, that this struggle raurt always arid everywhere be conducted under the forma of Uw. TI.e English-speaking people have learned that pop ular government rests on public character, and that institutions must change; they have also learned that institutions must be changed by evolution and not by revolution. Order i3 the basis on which every English-speaking society rests. It is the primary instinct of the English-speaking race. The necessity for it n not open to question. These two resnltn of fifteen hun dred years of political education must be borne in mind by every man who becomes a citizen of a free country. Any modification can be made which can be effected by voting; no modification can be effected which must be effected by force. All revolutions ar in or der through the ballot-box ; m revolution can bo made by gun powder or dynamite. All ques tions can be discussed and settled under the forms of law ; no ques tion can be settled by violence. It ia the first duty to ourselves to in sist upon instant obedience to the law ; and it is the greatest mercy that can be shown to foreign-born citizens, who have yet to learn our spirit, to teach them that lesson as quickly and as thoroughly ae pos sible. Every hand raised for vio lence ought to be struck down on the instant. There ought not to be a moment's uncertainty or a mo ment's delay on that point. The whole world is in a great struggle of coclli'cting interests and of classes who believe that their in terests are antagonistic. The struggle is healthful, and the issue will be righteous ; but the battle must be fought under the forms of law. No other way will be or ought to be tolerated. A Tribute to'Stevena. In the death of John L. Stevens, some time minister of the United States to Hawaii, this country lost a citizen who served it with all fidelity not alone in one conspicu ous instance, but during a long pe riod of public usefulness. Fear less, coneclentvoas, patriotic, be did the right thing at what seemed to him to be the right time. An American throughout, his name will achieve an honorable place in American history by reason main ly of the firm stand he took in be half of American interests when decency and indecency were strug gling with each other in Hawaii. Wathington Star. Their Last "Kick." inevitable, and having unequivo cally acknowledged the Republic of Hawaii as the only lawful Gov ernment of the Hawaiian Islands, the revolution may now be consid ered as complete. Admitting that the euccess of the revolution against the native monarchy con stituted the solo and sufficient title of the Republic to universal recog nition, the act of abdication of the ex-queen, and her advice to her for mer subjects to accept the sit uation, will not be without effect in reconciling the Hawaiian na tives to the new order of things. The recent emeute near Honolulu was probably the last kick of the irreconcilable royalbts of Hawaii. Philadelphia Press.

VO.-f tL' KJiN bTKEfcT OFFICE. j imiy 5opie5 February 26 , :o5- Th'.re has bejr. a dr;ad 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 j 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 ihe 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-' uuuc is me oiuDDie uigger, 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 atTtrd to do without them.

One of our customers who has used Aloha powder for several month?, says: "Before using yonr Aloha powder I had been troubled with sore gums. I was never free from this trouble for more than a week at a time. I have now been udng you powder for several month, and have not had the slightest trouble with sore gams.
