THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, APRIL, 22, 1S9.3.
The Pacific Commercial Advertiser Issued Every Morning, Except Sunday, by the Hawaiian Gazette Company t Sfo. 818 Merchant Street. WALLACE R. FARRINGTON, EDITOR. MONDAY, APRIL 22, 1895. Commissioner Armstrong calls attention to the aggressive work of the Chinaman in the coffee lands of Maui and says the whites are sleeping. We do not believe this was intended to give the im pression that the white coffee pioneers are by any means dead to the opportunities and necessities of the times, it at the same time re minds them that they must be up and doing, and not allow rich prizes to slip through their fingers into the hands of the Chinese. Don't take the latter to task be cause he has taken advantage of what white settlers are slow in as suming control. With the splendid addition to the Leper band fund from the re turns of Saturday night's lecture, the new instruments for which the Advertiser issued a plea not long since, are assured. The direct con tributions have been numerous, but we would not presume to cast the indirect contributions in the shade. Nothing could be more acceptable than the universal response which has been accorded the lectures given by Captain Cochrane. While every one got their money's worth, there is a deal of satisfaction in knowing that the money is to be used in forawrding a worthy ob ject. Captain Cochrane's good will is shown not alone in the lec ture which was entertaining and instructive to so many, but in the hard work and attention to prelim inary details which go quite as much to make up the final success. Band instruments and music may have but a passing thought in the minds of those in the outside world to whom such matters are an every day affair, but who can tell the happiness that will be j brought in this way to the lives of the unfortunate exiles on Molokai. ENGLISH VS. AMERICAN POLICIES. When the Hawaiian debate was on in the United States Senate, Mr. Lodge gave a list of the islands of the Pacific acquired by Great Britain in the last six years. The 'ew York Sun reviewing the speech says, "In 1888, according to this catalouge, she obtained the Gilbert group of thirteen islands, the EUice group of five islands, the Eaderbury group of five isl ands, the Union group of three islands, and finally, Kingman, Fanning, Washington, Palmyra, Christmas, Jarvis, Maiden, Star buck, Dudosa, Penrhyn, Vostok, Flint and Caroline islands. The next year she continued her opera tions by absorbing Ruie and Su waroff islands, together with the Coral islands, 600 miles from Ha waii, and the next year added Gardner and Danger islander Hav ing thus put her flag, under a peculiar agreement with Germany, on scores of islands at various dis tances from Hawaii, she sought last year to make a dash on Neckar island, the outermost link in the Hawaiian chain. But that attempt was checked by the vigil ance of the Hawaiian Government, which got a ship there first and ran up the Hawaiian colors." Just at the present time England's atten tion is centered on Venezuela where an effort is being made to secure control of the mouth of the Orinoco river. This is simply a part of the English plan :o gain control of strategic commercial points for her own personal benefit. England has interests in that sec tion, her people have money in vested there and with a little more assistance from the home govern ment can exercise a controlling hard and turn an immense amount of trade to the home ports. The Neckar Island incident, to say nothing of the whole Hawaiian annexation affair, and this Venez- uela question bring into striking contrast the lack of support which the United Stated has afforded its people in a foreign country, com pared with the policy of England. Suppose, for instance, that Eng lishmen obtained a financial hold upcn any section of any country, and for pome cause or another called upon the home government for assistance or moral support, in order to turn the trade and com mercial interests into English in stead of American channels. What would be the effect upon the world should England turn upon her sub jects and call for an investigation of how they obtained their money, to all intents and purposes stigma tize them as thieves, liars and usurpers ; tell them that England cared nothing for the agricultural and mineral products of Venezuela, or the naval advantage gained by control of Pacific isles ; that she already had more territory than she knew what to do with, and the best thing the English people in that country could do was to fight it out as best thev could? Ameri cans may call England grasping, aggressive or anything they please, she protects her citizens and does not discourage endeavors to ad vance English interests. If the Hawaiian Republic placed its flag on Neckar Island for one thing, it was to maintain what little chance there is remaining for American representation in the Pacific. And what is the reward? Two years of fighting against American slander and political imprecations tell the story. Whatever England does, she inspires loyalty by standing by her subjects. Would to God, the United States, as a result of its foreign policy, could say the same. VOICE OP THE PRESS The United States is not required by any obligation of bonor or comity to pension the ex queen of the Ha waiian Islands, but, on the other band, sbe is warranted in looking to certain citizens of the United States for pecuniary support. Beyond a doubt President Cleveland ought to start a subscription, putting himself down for a handsome amount. Ten thousand a year, we should say, would be a suitable income for Liliuokalani, ahd if the President guaranteed one half of that sum, only 10 per cent of bis annual salary, the other balf, we should hope, would be contributed by the rest of her adherents in this coun try who have aided him in bringing her into her present wretched condi tion. New York Tribune. Unless Joaquin Miller is the victim of a vicious reporter, be has returned from Honolulu in a "state of mind." The press dispatches make him say some very absurd things about the situation over there. His reported account of the suffocating condition of those confined for rebellion, is quite as horrifying as the story of the tricing of Captain Davies by the tbnmbs and about as reliable. It is difficult to de vise a penal institution superior to that of Hawaii in the matter of free access to the open air on the part of its inmates. And so of about everything else the irate poet is re ported as decrying. That the prison is at present a crowded abode is quite likely, and that the situation will be relieved by judicious pardons, or other arrangement, aa soon as practicable is quite probable. The hysterical man ner of Mr. Miller's protest leaves us to infer there is a story back of his fall ing out with the "ml9ssonaries," for whom, until now, he has had only good words.

Any one who reads Mr. Ashford's sayings to San Fran cisco reporters must read be tween the lines to understand that he does not mean half that he is reported as saying. Mr. Ash ford was long enough in Hawaii to convince the peo- ; pie that he can tell the differ ence between "a awk han a au saw," and that he under stands full well the value of silence. 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. W. is a little joker and the interview with the re porter in 'Frisco was one of his jokes. When Mr. Ashford left here, his main thought was to do something in the behalf of his brother. The people here who know him will not believe that a filibus tering expedition is in the line of assistance to that person. Some 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 Niihau 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 confidence when we tell you that this American wire will not be sold by us. We have an abundance of the European article and can supply all sizes and in any quantity. This wire with the steel stays and gal vanized washers comprise the material necessary to use in making the celebrated Jones' Locked Fence than which no stronger, cheaper or better fence was ever made. Our new stock of Dietz Oil Stoves are going as rapidly as can be expected with times as hard as they are. That it is a good stove, no one who has ever tried them will deny. They are absolutely safe, be cause there is no possible way by which they can explode; they are free from unpleasant odors, because they are made on the most approved plans; they are economical, because directly you are through cooking you extinguish the flame. Twenty-four dollars in vested in one of these stoves will save you a pot of money in twelve months. The Australia brought us the latest thing in tea strainers; they fasten close up to the spout and the leaves are bound to be caught in the strainer. Handsomely nickel plated and we sell them for a quarter of a dollar. We are having a run on the Alaska refrigerators, because they are the best ever brought to Honolulu. We sold one to a lady who had been taking twenty pounds of ice a day. When we assured her that she could reduce the quantity half the amount, she laughed at us. It was just ten days after she commenced using it that she j came in and reported that she ! now buys just halt the quantity of ice she formerly did. Tlie Hawaiian Hardware Co. L& 0OT FO STRANG!-: CASE (IF MR. JOHN LITTLEJOBN. Paine's Celery Compound CUKES When Ordinary Remedies Fail. The position of the physician who deals with the nervous and the feeble, the pain-worn, the hysterical, the sleepless, is one of the utmost irravity. Prolonged strain of mind and body, or of both, is apt to result all too quickly in sudden collapse . 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 responsibility set about to discover a remedy that should build up the nervous pystem, and cure the ills that result from impoverished blood and diseased nerves. He discovered that greatest of all remedies, Paine's Celery Compound, and submitted the formula to fellow physicians. There was no secr.t about it. The formula from that time UDtil 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. No other remedy was ever 83 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 la3t year, said : "I 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's letter. I feel conscientiously inclined to tesiify to the building-up qualities of the Celery Compound. I am just finishing the sixth bottle. I have recommended the Com pound to many. "For five years I have been alUicted each season with excessive nervousness; so sensitive was 1 that any little noise caused me to start and flutter. This extreme nervous condition induced an unpleasant affliction of eczema, a partly nervous disease with me. For live 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 Paine'3 Celery Com pound. My unpleasant nervous condi tion is entirely gone. I sleep well and have a good appetite. My dyspepsia is gone and I easily dige3t all 1 eat. For mmm drug company. DYSPEPSIA, HEADACHE, come from irritation of the nerves, and this nerve malady is just as likely to be caused by the squeaking and rattling noises in your carriage as anything else. A monkey wrench, a pair of new shaft springs and a little oil, applied by us, will do more good than a whole case of sarsaparilla. THE HAWAIIAN CARRIAGE M'FG CO. NO. 70 QUEEN STREET.

"Some four years ago last June, Mr. John Littlejohn complained to me of a peculiar sensation in his head and neck, right side I examined him closely and told him he had a blood clot at the base; 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. I saw tne doctor the next day, and he said he had found some undue pressure at the base of the brain. Dr. W.'a diagnosis was the same as cny own, al though we had neither of us known any thing about tiia other's diagnosis. There was some unsteady twitching of the tacial muscles on the right eide, and especially of the right eye. "Mr. "Littlejohn seemed to be com pletely unbalanced and 1 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 physicians in Janesville, Chicago, Mil waukee, and other places. All the treat ment failed to relieve him. 1 recom mended Paine's Celery Compound. "He tried it, and by a steady, persis tent use of the Celery Compound, lie completely cured himself of the worst case of extreme nervous prostration and excitement that 1 ever saw . Mr. Little john informs me that he has spent over $5,000 in doctoring, without good He thoroughly tried Celery Comiound. It completely cured him." Mr. Littlejohn himself writes: "I have been a traveling man for a great many years, and the exposure and worry that follow business transactions, caused me to break down with nervous prostration so that for several days they thought I was djing. Besides this, I had the creeping paralysis in my left arm, hand, and side, so that they were almost entirely useless, and I had a most severe case of catarrh to the extent that it al most destroyed my eye fright nnd ruined my hearing. 1 had no senee of taste whatever for two years. I had all tiiis po that I was used completely up for five years, s j you can judge of my condition. After all of these doctors failing, 1 finally cured myself by using Paine's Celery Compound."
