THE ACIPIC COMMEKCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOIiULU, MAY 8, 1895.

MAY 8, 1S95.
One of the amusing incidents
connected with United States Min
ister Baker's correspondence with
his government on Nicaraguan
matter, is his plea in a recent let
ter, "In heaven's name send me a
calendar, for I don't believe there
is one in Nicaragua." According
to the . last advices it would seem
that more than one American has
lost his reckoning upon Nicara
guan affairs and the study of an
historical calendar would not be
without its good effects.
Not long since the Chicago
Tribune asked its readers to sub
mit plans for the arrangement of
the stars in the field of the Amer
ican flag, so that after Utah, which
will add the forty-fifth star to the
flag, is admitted, there will remain
an unbroken field. One of the
recommendations suggests an ar
rangement whereby space will re
main not alone for Utah, but for
New Mexico, Alaska,and a 3 it is "al
ways pleasing to find room for one
more let us give it to Hawaii, wait
ing to join this bright galaxy.
President Cleveland and Secretary
Gresham to the contrary notwith
etanding." Special attention is called to the
exhaustive and interesting report
of the financial secretary of the
Hawaiian Free Kindergarten given
in another column. The growth of
this work among the children has
been phenomenal and is a splendid
monument to the gratuitous labor
of the ladies of the Woman's
Board. It is now the intention to
bring these schools under a distinct
organization and extend the ac
commodations to supply the 'needs
consequent to a constant increase
in popularity among the people of
every nationality. Too much can
not be eaid in favor of these schools,
and no institutions existing by
public subscription have a stronger
claim to unloose the purse strings
of the men and women thoughtful
of the future welfare of the nation.
Tai Yin Ciieo, a student of the
University of Michigan, in a recent
magazine article protests against
the use of the word Chinaman in
stead of Chinese. He states as to
the word Chinaman itself, there is
nothing good or bad in it, but it
somehow involves a sort of con
temptuous idea which has been felt
by many of the literary men of his
country. There is evidently a
strong vein oi sentiment running j
through the young man's charac
ter, and his plea is based upon
much the same feeling that causes
the Chinese to resent "John" and
accept "Charlie" as a universal
method of addressing them. After
all, the dignity or lack of dignity
implied in the word depends upon
the people of China, in whom lies
the power of inspiring quite as
much respect in the term China
man as Chinese.
ONE PALMER DEPARTS.
It is said the phantom ship,
Lying Dutchman," of which one
Palmer is skipper, will leave port
tomorrow. Her charter, by the
Evening Post, of New York, to
cruise in the Pacific in search of
falsehoods and freaks, is about, to
end, and she returns with a cargo
of consummate lies and marketable
fables, which will be as toothsome
to the editor of the Nation as a
course of rotten eggs is to a Chi
It is said that at San Francisco
the " Lying Dutchman" will take
on board that freak, Joaquin Mil
ler. It was he who wrote last year ;
"I like the cows' breath in sweet
I like the breath of a babe's, new 1
And he should have added ;
"Rut for an all-the year round breath,
Give me that of Skipper Palmer."
Should he become a passenger,
Skipper P. might furnish him with
a pair of trousers cut out of the
many and varied certificates which
he has received for successful
ly navigating the Nightingale
through a raging canal, and for
skillful conduct in escaping from a
school of fierce but rotten mackerel.
The custom house people say
that in the invoices of the " Lying
Dutchman," every article which on
the most critical examination
shows that it is a "veracity," is at
once thrown out. No inflammable
matter, like the truth, is permitted
on board. Statements which polar
ize 99 per cent, of pure malice and
cussedness are at a premium. The
skipper never gives an order to a
foremast hand, but means the
contrary. Salt junk is called ter
The cabin boy was "mast-
for three days for saying
that two and two make four.

P. commanding, takes a most val

Very rare. Notice how the captain
holds to the rope with one hand,
while he dangles in the air, and
extends to her the other hand, ut-
tering the words, "Escape and fly
with me from the Hawaiian Bas
tile." There is a rumor that Skipper P.
has demanded that Admiral
Beardslee with the Philadelphia
accompany the L. D. and protect
her precious freight. As the ex

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
'aii 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
standing1 as a candidate for
0ffice. C. W. is a little joker
( an( 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 fn the
behalf of his brother. The
people here who know him
1 wjjj not believe that a filibus
! tering expedition is in the line

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 hall
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 Nnhau 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 gai-
! vanized washers comprise the
material necessary to use in
making the celebrated Jones'
Locked Fence than which no
; stronger, cheaper or better
I 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 ctenv.
I They are absolutely safe, be
i 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 ol 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.

Prolonged strain of mind and body, or j

One of the greatest physicians the J
world has ever seen, who was for years
the most prominent man upon the faculty
ol Dartmouth, realizing the extent of the
physician's responsibilitv, 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

Dr. William Home, who for a dozen
years has been one of tbe most prominent
