Political conditions of the coun try, as connected with and influ reached Buch a state that it is po.s enced by the recent embroglio, have eiblo to look over tho two months passed and note with what wisdom and strength the Government has wrought. While we can hardly rise to the heights reached by a local orator, who epoke of the re bellion as tho "bloodiest revolution of the nineteenth century," it can be truthfully said that there has been no more important crisis in the history of the country. There wa?, indeed, very little bloodshed. One killed and three wounded cover causualities on the Govern ment side. Of the insurgent?, two are known to have been killed. Others are reported killed, but the fact that one of these men turned up a few weeks after the fighting was at an end shows that little de pendence is to b placed on the re ports from the rebel ranks. The military strength of the Re public and the perfection of its or ganization was demonstrated by the ability to place nearly one thousand men under arms, and in position to guard the streets of the city, within an hour of the sound ing of the first alarm.. The un known power of the Citizens' Guard, which many royalists dubbed a myth, proved a tower of strength of no mean proportions. With this and the regular and volunteer mil itary companies, the Government had fully twelve hundred men ready for active service on the morning of January 7th. The in surgents may have mustered five hundred men, but before the fight ing began there were many deser tions, until on tho first morning of the rebellion Wilcox and Nowlein had possibly one hundred and fifty men with them, more than half of whom, according to their own tes timony, were ready to throw down their arms and get back to town as best they could. The rebels were on the defensive from the outset, and, although their flight might have been brought to an end more sum marily had the Government forces been in more experienced hands, it would be unfair to compare a citizen soldiery of hardly two years stand ing, with trained officers and regi ments of larger and older nations. Immediately the rebel leaders were captured the Government set about the formation of a Military Commission for the trial of the men captured in the field, and as many others who had knowledge of and assisted in instigating the movement, but who kept in the background hoping to escape the penaltiejTof their guilty action and knowledge. TherMilitary Commission began its sessions on Friday, January 18th, and its work was practically finished on Friday, March 1st, at which time it had tried and rend ered decisions on 190 cases of treason and misprision of treason. Thirteen of this number have yet to hear toe sentence passed upon them. I On February 27th, when the ! sentences of 149 prisoners had been made public, five had received sentences of ten years imprison ment at hard labor; three, eight years ; one, seven years ; two, six years; and 122 five years. The majority of this number were na tives captured in the field, and the usual fine of $5000 was remitted, except in the cases of W. C. Laue, J. C. Lane, and ex-queen Liliuoka lani. The sentences of fifty-eight were suspended and four were ac quitted by the Commission. Those who acted as Government witnesses were given their liberty, also the body of natives who acted as guards at Washington Place. The six leaders were each sentenced to Nowlcin hirl HerU'l ral!owel their free reward for turnir: Statc'd evidence Thnv, like the others who-c- iiU'iict-y were suspended -ire liable to ar rest rind imprisonment for the full term of sentence on the dis play of a disposition to offer firmed re?irtarico to the Government. Walker and Widemann received sentences of thirty years imprison ment and $10,000 fine ; Greig and Marshall, twenty years and $5000 fine ; V. V. Ashford, one year and $1000; J. F. Bowler, five years and $5000, and John Cummins, $5000 fine. All of those mentioned have been put in the care of the marshal of the islands and are norr serving" their sentences. Cransloun, Mueller and John stone, men of anarchistic tenden cies, have been forcibly deported from the country, and twenty-three of those implicated in the plan.- A the rebels have accepted the alter native offered by the Government and voluntarily left tho country, to return when given permission by the Minister of Foreign Affairs. The majority of the white men who have been connected with tho re bellion are either British subjects or have been known as English sympathizers. The present uprising, like all similar events of late yeara, has been confined wholly to the island ofOahu, and with few exceptions to the close- vicinity of the city of Honolulu. While royalist sympa thizers of the other islands un doubtedly had knowledge of the intended outbreak, no disposition was snown to taKe up arms ana w . many nave endeavored to cover their tracks by lately avowed loy alty to the Republic. They, like others of their kind in Honolulu, have accepted the lesson taught by the unswerving action of the Gov ernment, and will be slow to be come a party to any revolutionary movement for some time to come. They have come to know by what civil and military, if necessary strength the Republic of Hawaii is established, and are respectful ac cordingly. While military vigi lance still remains a necessity, the Republic of Hawaii is on a sound footing and its ability to adminis ter equal rights to each and every law-abiding citizen unquestioned. VOICE OP THE PRESS. Republics stand the racket better than monarchies. See how easily and eafely France and Hawaii pa?s through their troubles. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. The present question in relation to Hawaii is not that of annexa tion. For the present it is the duty of the government of the United States to hold up the hands of the governing, intelligent and moral class on the Islands, who want to make progress in civilization. The question of annexation comes after wards. Cincinnati Enquirer. tuition Salts. James F. Morgan. THIS DAY. hodseholdWrnitore AT AUCTION ! On Tuesday, March 12 AT '10 O'CLOCK A. VL..

The fact that he gives to the world the means of producing staples at a less cost, and consequently be comes a benefactor of the masses indirectly is not re cognized. That he has taken work from an individual or certain classes of wage work ers is sufficient cause for the condemnation that is landed on his head. The man who invented the sugar land implements that we sell did that which acts to a certain degree as an offset to any tariff legislation in the United States. A whole colony of planta tion laborers could not do in one day what an Avery Stub ble Digger operated by one man can perform. It saves labor and consequently coin. In distributing fertilizers every plantation manager knows that it cannot be done by hand without loss of material. By the use of the Avery Fertilizer Distributor the material is spread so evenly tnat mere s no loss wnatever. ana one man with one of these machines can do as much work as nine without it. The results that follow the use of these implements ap ply as well to the Stubble Shovers and Disc Cultivators. The following testimonials regarding the implements should be a sufficient guaran tee of their usefulness. Hutchinson Plantation Company, Na- AtEnu, IlAWAir. March 1st, 1895. ) E. R.

Dk ar Sib: - In answer to yor letter inquiring about tl e Avery fitubble Dig gers and Fertilizer Distributor, I wou'd say that he fact that we heve just re ceived the fecond btubble Digger speaks for itself. We have dag over four hun dred acres of rattoon stools and consider it will be a great benefit. The Fertilizer Distributor i3 a good thin? and has effected a material savin? of labor in the application of Fertilizer and applies it better than can be done by hand. These machines are very simple and well constructed and we have bad no trouble with the working of them and we consider them one of the most useful labor eaviog machines that can be used on a plantation. lours Iruly, G.

Dear ik: The Onomea t-ugar Com pany has now in use three of the Stubble Diggers. 1 think these machines are indispen sable for the proper cultivation of rattoons. We have never had an implement that would bo thoroughly loosen the earth around the stools, and put the soil in such condition tbat the air, moisture and fertilizer would eo readily find access to the fine roots of the cane and tbe roots around them. I am glad to testify to the merits of these tools. The tiugar Land Disc Cul tivators arrived too late for much use in the cultivation of the lat young plant and rattoons, but 1 believe they will prove to be very useful and labor saving implements in districts where cane is ra;s( d vithoat irrigation.
