TILE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL, ADVERTISES : HONOLULU, OCTOBER 18, 1895.
S i r IT 13 A QUESTION OP STATE. Mr. Reynolds Calls for Exhibition of Common Sense. It would appear that the clear and plainly expressed opinion of your contributor a few days ago baa raided a storm of comment rimply because he, a decided roy alist, ehould venture to criticise but to endorse over his own signature the action of the Iioard of Health, but at the same time presume to question the action of the presi dent of that Board. S trange to say he, the president, does not look on me as an enemy, but like a man accepts my criticism. Now, about the carpers who cry down the action of the Board in falling in with my idea as to the straightening of Xuuanu stream from King street bridge to the wall opposite Pauoa stream iifrar Mc Gregor's place. My advocacy of this plan came from DO considera tions of property at stake in indi vidual inula noun, but simply as a piestion of State, which I claim to be paramount to all other interest?. Axes to grind, with me don't count ! There are at least twenty men employed making the back wall the Government has seen fit to pro pose and not one protests against the dirty job, therefore why all this opposition to the Government plans being carried out'.' Let reasonable men look at rea sonable things in a reasonable light. The question is one of tax payers, and I pay a good deal more year in and year out than those who for the sake of newspaper notoriety raise captious objection Tor what is for the good of the .State. Some have raised the serious question that the railroad wharf has been a menace to the general course of the stream and has thus raised all our present troubles I Veil, admitted the fact, did it ever occur to these questionists that the Hawaiian Government of that day deliberately consented to the fact, and that by consent of the Legisla ture. Some raise the question that this is an old plan now being acted upon. Well, bless me, can't the devil once in a while set a good example? The franchise or lea.se to the railroad does not now figure in the question, because terms once made must be abided by, and the only question now to be considered is the one recommended by the Board of Health to the Govern ment. A good deal of fear for their own, or somebody else's health, seems to cut a figure just now, for fear some one should start up the cholera scare again because of the mud dug up and deposited on Leleo flats. The best answer to that is for the objection ists to pass those same flats under present circumstances at any half-moon or full-moon tide ! I don't know, but I think they would hail anything that would be an attempt at an im provement. More could be said, but I think I have covered all the points raised. W. F. Reynoi is. South Sea Mimaionary Work. Father Bontempe, superior of the Sacred Heart, left Sydney for the Gilbert Islands with nineteen mis sionaries, July 2'Jd. He took with him 4000 copies of the Gospel of Matthew with illustrations and an notations, 3000 copies of a book of Bible stories with 100 illustra tiens, 3000 catechisms and hymn books, 1000 dictionaries and gram mars of the Gilbert Islands lan guage. It should be noted that the whole Bible has been trans lated by Rev. Dr. Bingham and thousands of copies put in circula tion. Primers, arithmetics, geo graphies and Bible stories have been in use for many years. Mrs. Bingham has now ready a book of devotional meditations for every day of the month which the Ha waiian Gazette Company will soon print for the Hawaiian Board to send down by the next voyage of the Morning Star. The Advertiser and the Reader. Now that advertising has reached a point of commercial honor the adver tiser is as important to the reader as the reader is to the advertiser. The latter spends hundreds of millions of dollars annually to tell the reader the wide awake reader just what he wants to know what be should know. It is very kind of him to do this gen erous, philanthropic. He is a public benefactor. We say it seriously. It i9 through him that the reader keeps in touch with progress, with the trend of prices, with inventions and im provements, and these mean some thing to the man who would spend his money wisely mean something to the womau who would not be de ceived in what she buys, and swin dled in the price she pays.

Miss Annie Londonderry arrived in this city yesterday morning after a trip around the world n a bicycle. Miss Londonderry is nursing a broken arm, the result of a bad fall sustained in one of the West ern towns. On June 26, 18iJ4, Miss London derry started on her trip around the world. .She was given a goed eend-ofT by several hundred friends. J who were at the State House when ! the start was made. Her trip, she says, was made upon a wager. She was to receive $10,000 if she fin ished the journey in fifteen months, and she leels proud of the record she has made. On Thursday, September 12th, the journey came to an end in Chicago, fourteen days ahead of the time allowed. In addition to the puree of $10, 00U, which she says was handed over to her by the parties making the wager. Miss Londonderry also accumulated $5000 from lectures given in several countries and also by participating in exhibitions of bicycle riding. Her experience in riding a bicy cle was very limited, having taken her first lesson on the day ene was to begin her long journey. She soon mastered the wheel, however, and after a few days' riding had very little trouble in getting over the roads. During all of her long trip Mi3 Londonderry says she met with a royal reception, particu larly in Paris, where she was given a grand reception and aleo made considerable money by ' lecturing.

It is much easier to m;ike a handsome case than it is to put music into it. A tolerable mechanic can do the one the other requires the best thought of a musical artist. The All have handsome, tasteful, durable cases, but in their factory constant, careful, studious attention is jriven to the production of a perfect and lasting tone. Tlie beauty and honesty of a Kroeger begins with the varnish oq the case and goes straight through to the iron plate that holds the strings. We'd like to show you the inside of a Kroeger.
