From the opinion expressd by
Sir Edward Grey concerning Brit-
ish interference in the case of Mrs.
Dominis, it may well be inferred
that the hope of the polilical pris-
oners of escaping justice through
the aid of outside powers will not
be realized. Nothing but the law
that "might makes right" could be
found to sanction demands made
bv either the United States or
England calling upon the' officers
of this Government to undo what
has been done by the established
law of the land. British or Ameri
can citizens who have sworn allegi
ance to ttawau ana oecome prac
tically if not theoretically natural
ized citizens cannot, unless their
respective nations have an axe to
grind, expect to be upheld and pro
tected for misdemeanors committed
against the political or business
systems of the country.
Fake yarns upon the Hawaiian
situation have been dished up with
i i 'm - jr it I
such regularity that the mail
which does not contain some new
libel upon the Government or the
people is the exception rather than
the rule. These yarns are taktm
up with avidity by nearly every
paper throughout the United States
receiving the service of the great
press associations. The journals
publishing them do not stop to
consider the truth or falsity. To
the night editor, planning his regu
lar scare heads and sifting his
telegrams, a story is a story,
whether it comes from Hawaii or
Cuba, and the most startling, trets
i . T e .u
the precedent. In view of these
facts, it is quite a wonder that the
country holds its present high
standing with the majority of
thoughtful Americans, and the dis
position to discountenance the
fakes is certainly an evidence of
the confidence placed in the offi
cers of the present regime. The
fact that the malicious Hawaiian
liar is abroad, however, demon
strates the necessity of the Gov
ernment placing about it the safe
guard of publicity that will give
protection against the possibility of
ANNEXATION, NOT WAR.
The enthusiasm upon foreign
policies to which numerous public
men of the United States have
allowed themselves to give voice
has raised the question whether or
no America is spoiling for war.
Senator Frye has perhaps reached
the highest pitch thus far attained,
and if his words are to be taken
literally, nothing short of the en
tire western hemisphere will satisfy
the American people. Following
upon the old adage that it never
rains, but it pours, the United
States has found itself thrust into a
position with serious international
questions on every hand.
Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela
have followed close upon Hawaii to
test the strength of the Administra
tion's diplomatic ability, but un
like the latter country, the United
States now has to deal with powers
quite as independent, strong and j
shrewd in shaping foreign policies
as itself. The American diplo
mats can neither bulldoze or play
the part of the dog in the manger
with cither Spain or England.
Lines of difference must be drawn
with greater care than when deal
ing with a practically defenseless
The attitude toward Hawaii has
not been favorable to creating a
conciliatory temper among the Am
erican people and the disposition
to push on to an issue or "do
something" to show that America
possesses some aggressive strength
and has a flag of its own has
on the increase. roliti-
r.ians have not been slow to caxen
the tenor of the times and from a
platform of aggressive strength
have branched out into expressing
extremely radical sentiments.
Therft rames a time in the life oi
every nation when the people be
come inspired by a contagious de
sire to "thrash some one" in order
to display their physical strength,
which on account of a long season
of ouiet many are inclined to
make light of.
While this spirit is running
high in the United Steles just at
nresent. national differences will
have to reach a more critical stage
before it will act as anything more
than a spur to the administration.
The annexation principle is abroad
and the people are asserting them-
selves, else we should not hear
such decisive remarks from the
politicians. Nothing proves the
strength of a stream better than
damming it up.
A PIRATE ON COMMERCE.
The saloon is a parasite living on
the fruit of all honorable trades.
Poverty follows in its wake. In
prosperous times, wherever its
cloven foot touches there is wretch
edness and hunger. In times of de
pression there are no words to depict
its ghoulish work. Corner Stone.
ALCOOOIi AND THE BRAIN.
T. Morton, M. D., in a recent letter
to the editor of the London Chroni
cle, writes: "There is no known
drug that can restore the integrity
of the brain-cells damaged by pro
longed drinking habits, though
nature can do much if alcohol is en
tirely and permanently withdrawn."

A permanent care for inebriety upon
is quite impossible. In the light of
Dr. Morton's declaration, it is vastly
better to stop before beginning to
drink. The Constitution.
John Burns says : "The destruct
ion of the poor is their poverty;"
and the present licensing system is
the chief cause of the present time
poverty, debasement and weakness
of the poor.
William Howard, Mayor of
Drogheda, was a slave to the worst
passions and degrading dissipation.
He felt that in himself there was an
irresistible gravitation to evil, but
he believed all things are possible to
God. His faith saved him.
Said Jerry McAuley, the ''wharf
rat," the "river thief," to whom the
power of regeneration ca
came in prison,
"Jesus saves me tonight from being
a drunkard, a gambler, and a thief."
"He saves me every day, and he can
save any man."
Dr. Samuel Johnson was
scrofulous, and his life was a con
stant strnggle with inheritance to
idleness, sloth and drink. He under
stood the power of habit, and strove
to resist every wrong tendency. "I
cannot drink a little wine," he said,
as a reason why he should drink
none at all, "because if I do I know I
shall not be able to stop where I
ought." W. C. T. U.

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 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 denv.
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 fifty cents.
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.

Paine's Celery Compound CURES When
Ordinary Kemedies 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 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 of 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 nerve3. He discovered that
greatest of all remedies, Paine's Celery
Compound, and submitted the formula
to fellow pnysicians.
ihere w8 no secret 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.
No other remedy was ever so highly
endorsed, and so generally used and re
commended by physicians.
Dr. Willam Home, who for a dozen
years has been one of tbe 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 ami
wife. I am, like ail 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. 1 am just finishing the sixth
bottle. I have recommended the Com
pound to many.
t or fa ve y ears I have been afflicted
each season with excessive nervousness;
so sensitive was I that any little
noise caused mo to start and flutter. This
extreme nervous condition induced an
unpleasant aliliction of eczema, a partly
nervous disease with me For live eea
sons I have been full of itching, red erup
tive sp'-sts. Three weeks ago, this condi
tion came upon me again, but with much
more excessive nervous prostration. I com
menced taking the Painw's Celeiy 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 digest all I eat .

come from irritation of the nervas, 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.

"I enclose the case of Mr. Littlejohn ol
"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 th? 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.'e
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 ' jerky,' and
quite unsteady This is a truthful state-
j men t of Mr. Littlejohn's condition. Ho
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. I recom
mended Paine's Celery Compound .
"He tried it, and by a steady, persis
tent use of the Cefery Compound, he
completely cured himself of the worst
case 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. Littlejjtin himself writes:
"I have been a traveling man for a
great many years, and tbe exposure and
worry that follow business transactions,
caused me to break down with nervous
prostration so that for several days they
thought I was dving. Besides this, I
had the creeping paralysis in mv left arm ,
hand, and side, so that they were almost
entirely useless, and I had a mo3t severe
case of catarrh to the extent that it al
mo3t 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, si you can j'ldue of my condi don.
