The Pacific Commercial Advertiser lMud Every Morning, Except Sunday, by trie Hawaiian Gazette Company t No. 31 Merchant Street. WALLACE R. PARRINGTON, EDITOR. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3, 1895. Senator Eugene Hale, of Maine, in a private letter received yeBter day, says of the Hawaiian cable proposition: "I shall introduce it at the first session of the next Con gress, and believe it will then go through." The Pacific cable from an American standpoint is from being a dead issue. Firms putting in bids for Gov ernment department work have reason to expect a return of fair business methods. It is bad policy when bids have been entered in good faith, for any official to enter into outside dickering,on an entirely different basis from that named in the call for tenders, in order to obtain a cheaper rate. and Minister Thurston, as an authority on Hawaiian affairs, has been eagerly sought by newspaper correspondents, and spoken with freedom upon the condition of affairs in thi3 country, but we fail to see in any of the published inter views any reflection upon the United States Government, except that the Republic is a standing re proof to all that has been done by a foreign power to overthrow its right to rule. We are not inclined to believe that Mr. Thurston has admitted having acted in a manner unbecoming a diplomat or offered an apology to Secretary Gresham, verbally or otherwise. If there is no truth in the re ports, the State Department is in duty bound to officially deny them and remove the stigma placed upon the representative of a foreign na tion. It is certainly much to be regretted that strained relations should exist with a naturally friendly government, and we hope most sincerely that later advices may shed light of a more friendly nature upon this episode. Unfor tunately, however, present appear ances are against such a supposition. Jimiy 5opie$ Among the Senators remaining at Washington, the report of Min ister Thurston's recall appears to be generally accepted as a fact. Senator Frye, of Maine, recently remarked : " If the Hawaiian Gov ernment can put up with Minister Willis, I think this Government might easily overlook such a trivial matter as that which was made an excuse for Minister Thurston's dismissal." There i3 always a dif ference between tweedledee and tweedledum (especially when one is bigger than the other), and re taliating measures are sometimes sought, but fortunately this Gov ernment is not obliged to follow a bad example. The attempted assassination of Li Hung Chang while within the borders of Japan, and practically under the protection of the Japan ese Government, is an incident much to be regretted in conse quence of the renewed complica tions that may arise. At all events, the Japanese Government is brought face to face with a new phase which cannot be particularly tasteful, and may result seriously. Peace nego tiations must necessarily be inde finitely delayed, meanwhile there is the prospect of a turn favorable to China, or the intervention of for eign powers. Japan can now see her mistake in not properly guard ing the person of a man against whom the feeling of her country men could not well be expected to be particularly friendly. TO COMPEL A MEETING. C. A. Spreckels Sues Directors of the Oceanic Co. Judge Seawell has granted to C. A. Sprockets a writ of mandate to com pel the board of directors of the Oceanic Steamship Company to meet and hold an election, or appear in court and show why they should not do so, says the S. F. Call of March 26. The suit is brought for the pur pose of securing to C. A. Spreckels a position upon the board of directors of the steamship company. For some time he has been represented in the board by Charles S. Wheeler, to whom he transferred all of his stock for the purpose of meking him eligible to the office. Wheeler, however, becoming tired of the pos ition, and fiuding his business else where as mach as he could look after, resigned from the board. At the next meeting of the board C. A. Spreckels was present, but be states that he was not allow d to speak, having apparently no stock in his own name, nor would the secret ary transfer his stock from Wheeler's name to bis own, as toe books bad been closed up. There was no meet ing thnn, nor has any meeting since beea called, and as it tabes a major ity of the shares of stock to call a meeting-, C. A. Spreckels cannot call the meeting himself. He has there fore ob ainei the writ of mandate to see whether the court cannot help him in the matter. James F. Morgan. THiS DAY. REPORTS OP THURSTON'S RECALL. Authentic statements upon the true inwardness of Minister Thurs ton's proposed return to this coun try are at the present time very meagre. The reports given out by the authorities or Minister Willis all show that the newspapers ap pear to know more of the affairs in the State Department than do the officials themselves. The fact however that Mr. Thurston is on his way to this country when he had given no previous intimation by letter that such were his inten tions, gives the reports a certain amount of truthful color. It will also be remembered that iq Ha waiian affairs at least the people have received news of the secret action of the American Executive through the newspapers before be ing informed officially. Though this method appears peculiar to the present officials in power it is none the less to be taken into consider ation in interpreting the reports thus far received. Again it cannot be denied that the present Administration is not inclined to be particularly friendly to the Republic and would not go out of its way to overlook any shortcomings which to its mind our foreign Minister might display. We cannot believe, how ever, the head of the department would commit the wrong credited to him by partisan journals of the States.

Does the United States Senate be lieve that other governments j will be willing to accept a "dog in the maneer" policy and 7 allow the Pacific to be without a cable? Do the Senators for j one moment imagine that the ; Nicaragua Canal will continue to exist merely in the imagina- j tion of the world and as a channel only for paper ships? We know not. Hawaii is in terested in both schemes to a very great extent because there is no doubt that her commerce will be increased by the com pletion of one or both of the measures. Nor is Hawaii the only locality to be benefitted. The United States, particularly the States along the eastern and western seaboard will pro fit by the completion of the canal to a wonderful extent; the mer chant marine that has been lying idle will receive an impetus the like of which has not been felt in years. Freight could be so much reduced that thou sands of tons would be ship ped from New York that would not otherwise leave the warehouses. We have just received an other invoice of the celebrated Dietz Oil Stoves, the same now extensively used in Hono lulu and which give universal satisfaction. As a fuel, coal oil is extensively used in the United States and here on ac count of its cheapness and be cause of the quickness with which a meal may be cooked. With the Dietz Oil Stove there is absolutely no odor from the burning oil and no danger of explosion. The cost of oil for a meal averages about three cents and when you are through heat and expense ceases. We have never had a word of dissatisfaction from parties using these stoves; on the contrary we are told that they will broil, fry, bake, and roast equally as good as a wood or coal stove and at less expense. If you contemplate renewing the youth of your dwelling by the use of a little paint, bear this fact in mind: Hendry's Ready Mixed Paint will go further and retain the gloss and color longer than any other ready mixed paint on the market. We have it. for inside or outside work in quart, half gallon, and gallon tins. If you want to do a little odd job and do not require the services of a painter get a tin of our paint always ready for use. If you are, for any reason, opposed to the ready mixed article we can supply you with either English or American lead and raw or boiled oil at the lowest possible price. The Avery sugar land im plements have proven a won derful saving to the planters here and our sales are con stantly increasing. Planters are realizing that economy must be practiced in every de partment of their plantations and labor saving implements are on the road to succes in this respect. We will eladlv furnish information and supply photographs to parties interested. rmirtrnrfrnmrrtm V J 9 IT S I 9 f 1 r LIli d D J tmtv s 1 1 sr . saving,- business-like, a "Caligrach' ADELBEKl'S DILEMMA, OR III K NEW WOMAN.
