RETROSPECT OF THE REBELLION.
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
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
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:
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"
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
similar events of late yeara,
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
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.

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.

When a man puts his wits
together and invents machin
ery that saves money to the
farmer, the manufacturer or
the planter he is called the foe
to labor. 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
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

man with one of these machines
can do as much work as

inquiring about tl e Avery fitubble Dig

say that he fact that we heve just re

for itself. We have dag over four hun

it will be a great benefit.
The Fertilizer Distributor i3 a good

These machines are very simple and
well constructed and we have bad no

we consider them one of the most useful

will harm the teeth or crums.
We have received many very flattering verbal testimonials. That it
is pleasant to use will be conceded by anyone with a brush and a pinch of
the powder. That it will not harm the gums is another claim we make for
it. What outsiders ay seems to carry weight. One of our customers who
has used Aloha powder for several months, says:
"Before using ycur 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 n3w been using you powder for several months, and have not had
the slightest trouble with sore gums. I believe that it was the powder that
I used irritated the gums.
