THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER : HONOLULU, JUNE 1 1S9S.
Jit j Si-W fX" :i DON CARLOS. THE SPANISH PRETENDER. Not only are the Spanish threatened with troubles from without, but are fearful of what may occur from within their own country... Don Carlos, the pretender to the throne, and leader of the Carlist faction, is the thorn in the flesh, of the Spanish Government. This man has been a menace to the integ rity of the Spanish throne for a score of years. He possesses immeasurable influence among the people. It is said there are over 2,000 Carlist clubs in Spain. Carlos claims to be the legitimate King of Spain through the titles of Char les VII. His father, Don Juan, was a brother of Charles VI. His mother was Archuchess Marie Teresa of Austria. He was married in 18G7 to Margaret de Bourbon, the Princess of Parma, daughter of Duke Ferdinand Charles III., and Bister of the late Comte de Chambord. This is the first time since the death of Alfonso XII. that Carlos has come forward as an active pretender. r k j I I i 41 ffle snorresr Rome end rosiest lie To health and strength will be found and made if you Invest in a WHITELY.

Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They are three feet high and very thick. Your plow turns them completely under, at the same time plowing the land fourteen inches deep. I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft for the same quantity and depth of work is as 6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it takes only 6, and they are less tired at night. Please send me another plow by first schooner leaving for this. You are at liberty to use this jn any way you may see fit. Yours truly, A. LIDGATE.

THEY WORK HARD (Continued irom Page 1.) are of minor importance and have been explained to your committee. The complaints as to illegible writing is due to the individuality of the handwriting and is hardly a matter to speak of as a very short time is required to become acquainted with the characteristics of same. In regard to the $200 referred to in the former report of your committee, we desire to more specifically state the facts in the case. On June 3, 1895, there was a shortage of $100 in the cash of the day's work and as the error could not be found an entry was made that day in the cash book stating that if not found in checking it would be made good, said entry being signed by the responsible clerk in the office. A similar error and entry was made on February 8, 1897. The Cash Book on these two days shows that the cash was handled by two or three clerks, but as the head clerk was responsible, he quite prop erly assumed such responsibility over his signature in writing, at the close of the day's work. These errors cannot be definitely settled without checking all of the pass books. This is very difficult to effect. The Postmaster General has advertis ed for all pass books to be sent in for the purposes of computing interest and checking, but only a portion of them have been received as the result of such effort. In conclusion we would request that this report be attached to and made a part of our former report as expla natory of the same. Respectfully sub mitted, A. V. GEAR, J. D. PARIS, Committee of Finance. Honolulu, May 2G, 1898. This was ordered printed and add ed to the first report. ( Rep. Loebenstein reported on Senate Bill 44, relating to the opening of streets on private lands in the Dis trict of Honolulu, recommending its passage. Rep." Loebenstein's final report for the Public Lands Committee was on Senate bill 43, an act to establish a marine park on the east side , of Ho nolulu harbor. Committee recom mended passage. Upon motion of Rep. Atkinson, Sen ate acts 21 and 45, relating to cable, were taken up for consideration. Rep. Achi moved that action be deferred on account of the fact that the Cab inet was supposed to be against the passage of the acts. As there, were none of the Ministers present the mat ter should .not be taken up. This motion did not prevail and the bill was read section by section. There was a sharp debate on Senate .bill 21, relating to the cable. Ministers Damon and Cooper and about half the members .took a hand. It was a re petition of the Senate brush. The Ministry and five House members were against the bill. AFTERNOON SESSION. At the opening of the afternoon ses sion of the House, the following peti tion was read: "To the Honorable, the Legislature of the Republic of Hawaii: "This memorial from the Woman's Board of Missions for the Pacific Isl ands respectfully represents that we are deeply interested m the mainte nance of a high standard of morality and purity in the character and homes of the people of this community. "Wfi feel deeply the wrong and m- inrv which has found advocates and champions in the introduction of a bill to license the sale of opium. Against such a measure we entered our most earnest protest when such license was favored by H. M. Queen Liliuokalani, and, in such protest we had then the earnest sunnort of some who would now seem to favor the licensed sale of a drug whose deleterious influences have been manifested and condemned as ruinous to health, industry awl happiness among just such classes of population as are so numerous in tnis country. We are convinced that it destroys the vigor of manhood the vitality of the race, the progress of society, the order of the family, and interferes with the administration of the Government. And we herewith present our protest against encourage ment of iniquity by law and remon strate against the passage of the pro posed bill to license the sale of opium. "And your petitioners will ever pray. "The Woman's Board of Missions for the Pacific Islands by its President and Secretary, as per vote of the Board at the meeting held this 31st day of Mav, 1S9S.

Ah Koon and Nin were arrestee while making an attempt to get away on the Kinau yesterday morning. They were recognized as deserters from Ewa plantation. At about 10:30 a. m. they arrived in the police Flation. In the early afternoon Ah Koon walked into the bath house in the jail yard while Ah Nin walked up and down just out side. Turnkey Melanphy missed Ah Koon and went in search of him. He found the Chinaman on the flooi in the bath room. His throat was cut quite badly while in the abdomen were three other cuts. These were done with a jacknife which Ah Koon had succeeded in smuggling in with him. Dr. Emerson was called and the fellow was removed to the Queen's hospital. A Neat Bade. Wm.

Inspector Storey of the Custom House force returned from his vaca tion trip to Maui on the Claudine Sunday morning and declares that he never in all his life had such a good time. He traveled to all parts of Maui and saw all there was to be seen. Upon his return to the city he went on duty immediately and In spector Rhodes was given his vaca tion together with Guards Nunes and Kaloaamaikai. Bad management keeps more people in poor circumstances than any other one cause. To be successful otip must look ahead and plan ahead so that when a favorable opportunity presents itself he is ready to take advantage of it. A little forethought will also save much expense and valuable time. A prudent and careful man will keep a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Chole ra and Diarrhoea Remedy in the house, the shiftless fellow will wait until ne cessity compels it and then ruin his best horse going for a doctor and have a big doctor bill to pay, besides; one pays out 25 cents, the other is out a hundred dollars and then wonders why ais neighbor is getting richer while he is getting poorer.
