THE L'ACIFIC COMMEliCI-A.il ADVEHTlSEIt: HONOLULU, AriHL 23, 1895.
I he Pacific Commercial Advertiser Itsaed Every Morning, Except Sunday, by the Hawaiian Gazettp: Company At Koi 318 lrchnt Street. WALLACE R. FARRINGTON, EDITOR. TUESDAY, APRIL 2?,, 1895. By a decision of the Supreme Court upon the legality of a land conveyance purported to have been made by the late King Kalakaua, tracts of land valued in the vicin ity of $40,000 have been saved to Queen Dowager Kapiolani. Ac cording to the document presented by S. W. Mahelona this property was transferred to him for a con sideration of $5000 on November 15, 1890. The opinion of the Court given by Paul Neumann shows that not only was the king's signa ture forged, but at the time when he was said to have been negotia ting this transfer, he was enjoying the festivities of a birthday cele bration. Mahelona's witnesses and their handiwork are shown to be false from the start. We give in another column the story of how Marcus Whitman saved Oregon to the United States, a story which every American may point to with pride and remark upon the valor and foresight of his ancestors. It is a matter of sur prise now that such a broad- minded man as Secretary Webster should have looked askance at the plea of the missionary who being on the spot, knew whereof he spoke and the opportunity that was in danger of slipping from the American grasp. What would have been the verdict of history had Marcus Whitman been told that he was meddling in an affair that con cerned his personal interest and had nothing to do with the Ameri can people ; that he was a grasping missionary wnose greed tor gain had overcome his thought for the morality and future happiness of the Indians? These are points which critics on Hawaiian affairs may well ponder. THE BISHOP 3 TEMPERANCE SCHEME. Bishop Fallows, of the Reformed Episcopal Church, has sought to solve the temperance problem by opening a "beer" saloon in Chi cago. He is, to all intents and purposes, fighting fire with fire, the devil with the devil's tools, except that the alcoholic sting has been eliminated. The Bishop is dis pensing a beverage having the ap pearance of beer, the taste of beer, and all the other ingredients aside from alcohol, and has thus far made such a success that the Chi cago brewers hav declared war and opened with a boycott on the coop ers making the casks for the new drink. In defense of his new scheme Bishop Fallows states that the work of the church and temper ance workers has amounted to nothing. He has made a study of the saloon business, the princi ples of saloon management, and intends to create a place where men will find the same associa tions, plenty of warmth and light, a good place to drop in and gossip and obtain anything and every thing in the way of beverages ex cept intoxicants. The scheme of furnishing sort of a wayside inn is a good one but whether it will detract tipplers from going a few steps further on and getting a glass of genuine beer after having partially satiated their thirst with Bishop Fallows' con coctions is open to question. There cannot be much virtue in pretending to be delightfully vic iouB and in a case like this, it is a rule that stands in danger of work ing both ways. Young men attracted by the gilded coffee and imitation beer saloon may be led in this manner to the more contaminating and lower resorts. The way to reform is to reform and not share with evil methods sim ply because they prove successful in the hands of those with evil in tent. The man who drinks Ja maica ginger and aumerens ether ! combinationa of concentrated uhre ; water" is quite as degraded and ' intemperate as I19 who drinks beer i and wine. Temperance enthusiasts ! are altogether too liable to become alcoholic enthusiasts and forget ' there is temperance in all things, ! even to coffee, pink beers and j ever" day innocent thirst quench ers. CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK- Not long since the managing editor of the New York Evening Post became inspired with the most unprecedented idea that his paper was the only representative of purity of religious and political thought that the United States has within its borders. Whether it was the shade of Skipper Palmer's halo that cast this strange hallucination over him it is not within our prov ince to assert, but in view of the statements upon Hawaiian affairs to which that paper and its right bower, the Nation, have given voice, the sentiments are intensely interesting. We are reminded somewhat of the penitent who finally looks upon himself as others see him. For instance, the Post says of American journals in gen eral : "It is not their indecency that is their worst fault; it is their unutterable silliness and vulgarity. One who knows no better might fairly imagine that a lot of vicious boys had got hold of the press and were amusing themselves with bringing civilization itself into rid icule. The most marked feature, in fact i3 their puerility. Nobody who was not accustomed to them would suppose they Were the work of grown-up people. Childish hilar ity, irreverence, and, we may add, childish inventiveness, are their leading characteristics." The Post is certainly free from vulgarity. When it tells a lie, it dresses it up in good smooth lan guage thafr carries weight with those who know little or nothing of the situation. No one reading the Post's statements on Hawaiian matters can doubt for an instant the silliness of the vicious lot of boys that appear to work the wires of their puppet correspondents, who are amusing themselves with bringing civilization itself into ridi cule, and American civilization at that. Unfortunately this country is accustomed to these things, understands their puerility, child ish inventiveness and idiotic asin inity, and can appreciate how well what the Post says of others can be applied to itself. When that paper talks about its American con temporaries for publishing fake di vorce proceedings, it is putting itself in the place of the pot that called the kettle black. VOICE OP THE PRESS That emineut British and royalist organ, the Evening Post, in comment ing upon th demand of the Republi cans in Congress that the Cleveland Hawaiian policy of assassination and treachery shall be fearlessly discussed upon the floor of the House and Sen ate, remarks with a snarl that "what is really going on is preparation for annexation in case the Republicans win the Presidency in 1896 " Tne journalistic devotee of Mr. Cleveland and the amiable Mrs. Domiuis tells the truth. The Republican party has been driven by the inconceivable du plicity and infamy of the President's course toward Hawaii into making a party issue out of what would other wise have been a purely national affair. The Republican party pro poses to annex Hawaii just as it pro poses to maintain American dignity and safety by building a strong navy and fortifying American seaports; and all the slanders that the cuckoos can utter, and all the conspiracies into which Grover Cleveland may enter with thm hired assassins in the pay of Li liuokalani's British backers will not avert the annexation of Hawaii to the United States. When the American people indorsed Republicanism by the most overwhelming vote of confidence ever given in American history they indorsed the entire Republican pro gramme, in which Hawaiian annexa tion plays a prominent part. The Evening Post and the rest of the cue -koos may rest assured that this pro gramme will be carried out. New York Press. JUST RECEIVED, FRF.SH SUPPLY OF BtKKK E.

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. Ashford was long enough ! in Hawaii to convince the peo ple 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 10 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 came in and reported that she now buys just half the quantity of ice she formerly did. g, fllf afiM Baidf 916 C 141 STRANGE CASE OF Paiiie's Celery Compound CURES When Ordinary Remedies Fall. 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 gravity. Prolonged strain of mind and body, or of both, is apt to result all too quickly m 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 ot the physician's responsibility, 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 greatest of all remedies, Paine's Celery Compound, and submitted the formula to fellow physicians. There was no secret about it. The formula from that time an til now lun 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 j those who are sick. No other remedy was ever S3 highly j endorsed, and so generally used and re commended by physicians. Dr. Wil iam Home, who for a dozen yean has been one of the most prominent editors, of and writers for, medical jour- nals, writing in May of last year, said "I have been using Paine's Celery Compound for six weeks for myself ani 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 testify 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 afflicted each season with excessive nervousness; so sensitive was I that any little noise caused me to start and flatter. This extreme nervous condition induce i an unpleasant affliction of eczema, a partly nervous disease with me . For five sea sons I have been full of itching, red erup- A. x mi v live spis. xnree weess ago, iuih conui i tion came upon me again, but with much more excessive nervous prostration.

I recommended him to one of the best physicians, Dr. J. B. W. He went and the doctor male his diagnosis. I saw toe doctor the next day, and he said he had found some undue pressure at the base 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 diairnosia. There was som unsteady twitching of the tacial muscles on the "right side, and especially of the right eye.

I recom mended Paine's Celery Compound. "He tried it, ami by a steady, persis tent use of the Celery Compound, he completely cared himself of thd worst cafe of extreme nervous prostration and excitement that I ever saw . Mr. Litt e john informs me that he has spent over $5,000 in doctoring, without good He thoroughly tried Celery Compound. It completely cured him." Mr. Littlejjhn himself writes: "1 have been a traveling man for a great many years, and the exposure and worry that follow tusiness transactions, caused me to break down with nervous prostration so that for several days they thought I was thing. 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 ca v of catarrh to the extent that it al most destroyed my eye tight nnd ruined my hearing. I had no sense of taste whatever for two years. I had all this po that I was used completely up for five years, s you can j idee of ray condition.
