THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISES: HONOLULU, MAY 7, 1895.
"he Pacific Commercial Advertiser Issued Bvery Morning, Exempt Sunday, by the Hawaiian Gazette Company At No. 318 Merchant Street. WALLACE R. FARRINGTON, EDITOR. TUESDAY, MAY 7, 1895. Every British subject who has taken the oath of naturalization ing and it may not. I here is ma will begin to look about for proof terial for the repetition of an event that he did not know what he was doing or his friends told him he was all right whatever happened, when he swore allegiance to the kins and to suonort the constitu- 0 M. M. tion of Hawaii. At some not far distant day may we expect newspaper freaks with an axe to grind to point to the one hundred and eleven votes cast for Judge Robertson as an evidence of the manner in which the Re public is keeping the public under foot? Very likely. The journalis tic graveyard is full of bleaching stones marking the dismal failures , , -i -i i . the Hawaiian Republic into disre- Dute. and there are others old enough to know better who con tinue to travel in that direction. Noah Brooks m a paper upon the "Reelection of Lincoln" tells the public in plain every day lan- guage that on the day of Lincoln's inauguration, Vice-President John son was drunk when he took the oath oi omce. t nends and par- tizans of that dav were prompt to deny rumors concerning the state of intoxication in which the vice president found himself, and un doubtedly, had Noah Brooks written as he has today he would have been stamped as a renegade, or at least lacking in common sense. Yet why should a vice-president drunk be spoken of with greater care than a police court inebriate? Why should there be a distinction in the reference made to a vice-president, or a president for that matter, who suddenly found himself "over come" by heat and alcohol, and the every day man who carries a "jag"? This form of false official modesty ought to die out and un doubtedly will as reforms advance and alcoholic spades are known as spades. DIFFERENCES IN CITIZENSHIP. Nothing growing out of the re cent unpleasantness is more inter esting or attended with more seri ous results than the decisions of the various governments, whose former citizens have made them selves liable to Hawaiian law, upon the question of citizenship. Secre tary Gresham has told his people that any disposition of Americans to uphold Hawaiian constitution and law by armed force is practical renunciation of fealty to the United States, at least for the time being. He does not say this man can never become an American citizen except by going through the course of naturalization, but he avers that no man can hide under the wing of the American eagle while fighting the battles of another. Such is the American doctrine of the Gresham regime. Now comes Lord Kimberley as sponsor of the policy of Great Brit ain, a government, most jealous of the rights of its citizens and inclin ed to make the weight of the lion's paw felt when it sees fit. It is very plain that Gresham is not copying Kimberley or Kimberley following in the footsteps of Gresham. The British Minister performs a feat of legal hair splitting which from one standpoint he has a per fect right to do and the results of which will be closely watched by the people of the United States as well as Hawaii. It appears that Hawaiian law has been set aside by virtue of the verbal statements of two former citizens of Great Britain. The fact that Rickard and Walker were, as they state, in formed that Hawaiian naturaliza tion papers did not effect their British citizenship, removes all re- cnnnsihlllfu w?n?rVi iht wnnlinnr ftf the law may imply. lheir in-; forniants were the King and the j Minister of Interior, both of whom are dead, and strangely enough the decision appears to turn on the affi davit rather than the decisions oi Hawaiian courts. This is unusual and we fail to call to mind a prece dent. Mr. Hewetthasthe misfortune to possess a certificate of his natural ization, consequently he cannot look beyond the Republic of Hawaii for protection. This action of the British Gov ernment may have a hidden mean- something similar to the Nicara guan affair, though with the guilt 0f one of the subjects self-confessed the mode of procedure will neces oarilv be unon a different line.

A member of the diplomatic corps, long in the service and well versed in the procedure, said in regard to the Thurston-Gresham affair recent- Jv: "The books do not contain a precedent warranting a demand for I 1 II 1 1 , a minister's recall because ne nas stated to the public or the press a condition of facts within his country. The contrary was expressly held by Mr. Webster when he was Secretary of State and also in a Spanish case. In tne case of Mr. Thurston ne was nnder no obligations to give to the State Department information of the sentences imposed on those convict ed of rebellion. The department has its own medium of information in Mr. Willis- Ud tne other hand, there is no precedent against Mr. Thurston's giving information to the press before or after giving it to the department as to the sentences of the rebels. It was information as to facts which had actually occurred. and not of subjects involved in diplo- matic negotiations. The precedents are agreed that a minister should not communicate with the press or give opinions on purely diplomatic ques tions, but he is always at liberty to state conditions of fact."

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 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 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 auantitv of ice she formerly did. The Hawaiian Hardware Co.

STRANGE CASE OF Paiiie's Celery Compound CUKES Ordinary Remedies Fail. The peskion 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 in eudden 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 syetem, 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 pnysicians. There was 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. V llham Home, who for a dozen years has been one of the most prominent editors, of and writers for, medical iour nais, writing in May of last year, said : "I have been using Paine's Celerv Compound for six weeks for myself and wife. I am, like all graduated M. D.'s, opposed to all proprietary remedies. 1 was induced to fcry the Celerv 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 bzen afflicted 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 alfliction of eczema, a partly nervous disease with me. For live sea sons I have been full of itching, red erup tive spats. Three weeks ago, this coadi tion came upon me again, but with much more excessive nervous prostration. I com- menced taking the Paine's Celery Com- t pound. My unpleasant nervous condi- tion is entirely gone. I sleep well and I have a good appetite. My dysper3ia is ! gone and I easily digest all I eat. For H0BMN mm COMPANY.

When "I enclose the case of Mr. Littlejohn of 1 Janes viile. Wis. "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 1 the brain. I recommended him to one ; of the best physicians, Dr. J. B. W. He I went and the doctor made his diagnosis. ! Ijsaw toe doctor the next day, and he said he had found. some undue pressure 1 at the base of the brain . Dr. W.'s i 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 i quite unsteady. This is a truthful state- mentof Mr. Littleiohn's condition. He tried every conceivable remedy, by the recommendation ol! 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. "lie tried it, and by a steady, perBis- j lent nse of the Celery Compound, he completely cured himoelf of the worst case of extreme nervous prostration and excitement that I ever saw. Mr. Little john informs me that he has spent over $5,000 in doctoring, without good He thoroughly tried Celery Compound. It completely cured him." Mr. Littlejohn himself writes: "I have been a traveling man for a Ifiit-ttL nitxiky y train, uuu iuo exputjurtj anu worry that follow business transactions. caused me to break down with nervous prostration so that for several days they thought I was ding. Besides this, I had the creeping paralysis in my left arm, baud, 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 eight nnd ruined my hearing. I had no sense of taste whatever for two years. I had all this so that I was used completely up for five years, so you can judge of my condilion. After all of these doctors failing, I finally cured myself by using Paine's Celery Compound." Is there a sick person who cau afford not to try a bottle of this wonderful remedy?
