I he Pacific Commercial Advertiser Utued EEvery Morning, Except Sunday, by Dm Hawaiian Gazette Company t No. 318 Merchant Street. WALLACE E. PARRINGTON, EDITOR. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 1895. SKIPPER PALMER ON DECK, JimIy 5opie5 . ifrtk Count Yamagata who has been styled the Napoleon of Japan, wa3 one of the ftrst to bring to his country the transforming influ ences of Euronean civilization. He became interested in the art of war and looked to Americans for meth ods and assistance. "The Amer icans," he once observed, "'are des tined to become the leaders of the world ; for industry rules and the Americans are the greatest in ventors of labor saving machinery in the world.'' The American doubtless feels dattered at this compliment, but the workingmen lose their appreciation of the senti ment when they come in contact with the Japanese labor systems. Skipper Palmer has issued his ultimatum and placed his burning words of fame on record, along with those of Joaquin Miller and numer ous other individuals who, having failed to realize their hopes of per sonal magnification in anything else, have turned on Hawaii. The slight difference between the men. aa displayed - in their effusions, is due to the fact that Julius has been reared on intellectual Boston baked beans, while Joaquin has often gone shy for food, and is more harsh and raw in his remarks. The -jurii ui pre vanciitiurj. uuwever appears to feed equally well upon Boston beans or Western wind. The skipper's dispatches are ex act imitations of the "bloody shirt" dispatches sent from the South to the Northern radical papers for twenty-five years after the war. The skipper is hot. "No Repub lie exists in Hawaii." "Laws are promulgated by advertisement in the daily papers, over the signature oi President Dole." "President Dole is far less conservative than formerly. He introduces and ad vocates in Councils the most string ent measures." So it was during the early days of the American civil war, when the London Times demanded dis patches of the same kind, and its correspondents sent them over laden with hatred of the Ameri cans : "Democratic institutions are at an end in the United States. Liberty no loDger exists. Lincoln is a despot more arbitrary than the Czar of Russia. The great experi ment of self-government has ended in military rule." For four years the people of the Northern States were misrepresent ed in t.Vift Brit.ish nrpas Tr ura &sutttg TOT)ugn,T5iJt they trusted to time and justice for vindication, and finally they got it. We have heard a rumor that the " brave Captain Palmer," fifty years ago, navigated a boat across the Boston frog pond, in a howling storm, and rescued a drunken per son who was drowning in two feet of water. And for this he was ennobled with a title. Is it true? Yes, quite as true as his dispatches to the Post. Why was he then made a newspaper correspondent? That is the mystery of it. When one of his subjects presented to the Shah of Persia the first watermelon of the season, that monarch im pressively replied, "Thanks. I make you my Minister of Science." Why Minister of Science? That's another mystery. Fifty years ago a whaling skip per settled here, and always ac cused the missionaries of being at the bottom of every trouble he had. One day old General Miller's dog bit him. "There, you see." he yelled out, "them dn mission aries are at me again." Gently ana naturally has the old whaling Oil TllUTSdaV. ADril 18 w M now promulgated by the self-insti- j tuied oracle. Should any politi cal party in the United States , espouse our cause, Hawaii j must turn the cold shoulder : and refuee to have anything; . Qne who readg Mf to do with it unless the opposing j Ashfo'rds savings to San Fran faction promises not to call names j dsco reporte'rs must read be or commit many of the naughty j t the iines to understand I acts known to politicians. Hawaii has Republican friends and Demo cratic friends lots of them ; but we can depend upon it that numer ous long, cold winters will pass over the supporters of the present administration before Grover Cleveland sends an an nexation treaty to the United States Senate. Hawaii must steer clear of factional jealousies so far as possible. At the same time, it must take the current when it flows, and not pass its time in a vain endeavor to reform American political methods. LEWIS & CO. live Jut Kfoeive.t CEYLON TEAS S RANGE CASE OP MR.

Joaquin Miller tells us that the con dition of affairs in Hawaii is simply terrible, more awful in fact than any thing that transpired in the French Revolution. This is a splendid testi monial to the vigor of Mr. Miller's imagination, and indicates, tt , that he is indulging in an unusually strong brand of poetic license. He is so ac customed to this that he doesn't seem to know when he is lying or merely romancing. Troy Budget. Thurston, the Minister from Hawaii, has started for home without waiting to be recalled. There are rumors in Washington that he and the Hawaiian Secretary of State will change places. If they prove true, Secretary Gresham will still have to discuss foreign rela tions with Mr. Thurston, who will then be his official equal. If this oc- visitor at the Hawaiian State Depart ment, and his recall may be expected. Mr. Thurston's advice will be of great value to President Dole in the present state of affairs in Hawaii. Once be fore has Mr. Thurston taken an un expected trip to Honolulu, and his presence there was in the nature of a powerful reinforcement. Lynn, Mass., Item. The Chicago Times-Herald is t ired of what it terms Hawaiian howlers. Hawaii, says that journal, has alreadv caused too much noise in the world and consumed too much valuable space in newspapers. "Hawaii," con tinues this Chicago torch of enlight enment, "is a nuisance. Thurston is a nuisance. The Hawaiian howlers are nuisances. Abate them all and severally." The American people do not know exactly whom the Chicago Times-Herald speaks for. The pres ent paper is a combine of which the only apparent factor is monev.

He has about as much intention of heading a filibustering expedition as he has of returning here and standing as a candidate for office. C.

The j people here who know him will not believe that a filibus- ! tering expedition is in the line ! of assistance to that person. oome time ago, we pur chased a lot of European wire and immediately afterward some parties circulated a re port that the quality had been affected by some unknown cause and that it was not up to the standard of the Am erican product. We had a half dozen coils of the wire tested at the Iron Works and it showed a tensile strength of 2760 pounds, when this re port was published in this column, the wire was sought after by plantation managers and individuals from Xiihau to Hawaii. The other day. to ob lige a skeptic, we ordered a hundred coils of American ! wire from the Coast and as it reached the store, we sent a half dozen coils to the foun dry to have it tested. The result showed a tensile strength of 768 pounds or about 2000 less than the Eu ropean article. We violate no rnnflrlenre ivhpn ,rnn uicxl tiih American wire will not be sold by us.

Frolonged strain of mind and body, or of both, is apt to result all tco quickly in sudden collapee One of the greatest physicians the world has ever seen, who was for years the most prominent man upon the faculty of Dartmouth, realizing the extent of the physician's responsibilitv, set about to discover a remedy that should build up the nervous system, and cure the ills that result from impoverished blood and diseased nerves. He discovered that greatefet of all remedies, Paine 's Celery Compound, and submitted the formula to fellow ptysicians. There was no secr.t about it. The formula from that time until now has been furnished, whenever asked for, to reputable physicians, and they have time and again examined it, and knowing that it is good, have recommended it to those who are sick. So other remedy was ever so highly endorsed, and so generally used and re commended by physicians. Dr. William Home, who for a dozen years has been one of the most prominent editors, of and writers for, medical jour nals, writing in May of last year, said : "J. have been using Paine's Celery Compound for six weeks for myself and wife. I am, like all graduated M D.'s, opposed to all proprietary remedies. I was induced to try the Celery Compound after reading Commodore Howell 'a letter. I feel conscientiously inclined to testify "f encioee the case of Mr. Littlejohn of Janesville. Wis. "Some four years ago last June, Mr. John Littlejohn complained to me of a peculiar sensation ia his head and neck, right side. I examined him closely and told him he had a blood clot at the baae of the brain, I thought, or a small tumor pushing upon the nerves at the base of the brain. I recommended him to one of the best physicians, Dr. J. B. W. He , went and the doctor made his diagnosis. 1 saw trie doctor the next day, and he said he had found dome undue pressure at the baae of the brain. Dr. W.'s diagnosis was the same as my own, al though we had neither of us known any thing about the other's diagnosis. . There was some unsteady twitching of the facial muscles on the right side, and especially of the right eye. " Mr. Littlejohn seemed to be com pletely unbalanced and 4 jerky.' and quite unsteady. This is a truthful state ment of Mr . Littlejohn's condition . He tried every conceivable remedy, by the recommendation of some eight or ten I physicians in Janesville. Chicago. Mil waukee, and other places. All the treat ment failed to relieve him. I recom mended Paine's Celery Compound. "He tried it, and by a steady, persis tent use of the Celery Compound, he completely cured himself of the worst case of extreme nervous prostration and excitement that I ever saw . Mr. Little john informs me that he has spent over 15,000 in doctoring, without good He thoroughly tried Celery Compound. It ompletely cured him." Mr. Littlejohn himself writes: "I have been a traveling man for a to the building-up qualities of the Celery J great many years, and the exposure and THAT YOUNG MAN i Doesn't look embarrassed.

"For five years I have been attiicted each season with excessive nervousness; so sensitive was I that any little noise caused me to start and flutter. This extreme nervous condition induced an unpleasant atiliction of eczema, a partly nervous disease with me. For five sea sons I have been full of itching, red erup tive spots. Three weeks ago, this condi tion came upon me again, but with much more excessive nervous prostration. I com menced taking the Paina's Celery Com- j pound.

The Bulletin has expounded -uch wonderful political arguments regarding the status of affairs in the United States, that it would be nothing surprising if American statesmen apply to the oracle for points. According to our contem porary, the late elections prove nothing, and are simply the result of little family rows which, by some happy or unhappy circumstance, had the same ending. It forgets that as Democrats of Hawaii are prominent in the annexation move ment, so Democrats of the United States assisted in shaping the comp'exion of the next Congress. Such overwhelming majorities were never obtained by strict party votes. A new system of annexation is I descriptions by which thev can explode: they are free from unpleasant odors, because they are made on the most approved plans: j they are economical, because directly you are through cooking you extinguish the name.
