ABOU
This Country Subject of
Discussion in States.
Many Propose Coming- Here At the
Exposition Mr. Shingle Tells
Them No Boom Here.
Edwin Farmer, school teacher at
Cwa, returned by the S. N. Castle from
a visit to hi3 old home in Nebraska.
He is accompanied by his sister, Miss
Addie Farmer, who will also perhaps
engage in school work in the Islands.
While East Mr. Farmer called at Om
aha and attended the great exposition.
He saw the Hawaiian exhibit and says
that "it is good and interesting, and
has a crowd around it all the time.
Commissioner Shingle is uniformly
courteous and attentive to the public
hard work when one considers the
many questions asked o him and the
thousands of requests made.
"Mr. Shingle has given out all of
the Foreign Office literature," said Mr.
Farmer. "He is now distributing Con
sular reports and using his personal
knowledge of Island conditions to fill
up the gap. The Commissioner is cer
tainly very industrious and is doing a
grand work for Hawaii. He talks
plainly to people, telling them that Ho
nolulu is not a boom town and unless
they have money to start on they can
not succeed here.
"Half the people of the United States
want to invest in or come to the
Islands," continued Mr. Farmer. "I
never saw anything like it. Honolulu
la the one topic on the cars, in the
cities and even in the rural districts.
The country is being advertised in the
papers, by the railroads and by steam
ship companies. Really I am afraid
the thing will be overdone. As far as
possible I warned prospective immi
grants that they must have money to
make money in the Islands. At' a
single time I saw as many as a half
dozen lady school teachers talking to
Mr. Shingle about coming to Hono
lulu." Mr. Farmer states that Judge Post,
of Columbus, Nebraska, is an appli
cant for the position of United States
Circuit Judge of the Islands. He is a
Republican leader in his State, has a
powerful "pull" and his friends believe
he will get the place.

That "Autograph" Letter.
MR. EDITOR: The writer of "Top
ics of the Day" in the Independ
ent whose chief and apparently con
genial mission on earth is to get other
people into trouble makes an attack
upon the secretary of the Foreign Of
fice, which that gentleman will prob
ably survive, and which no one but a
vindictive person would take serious
ly to heart, but in reply to which I
nevertheless crave permission to state
the following:
Firstly That I challenge any intel
ligent or honest reader (except the
critic referred to) to point out a single
word in the Advertiser paragraph that
warrants the belief or insinuation that
the same was inspired by the official
in question.
Secondly No one in the world is re
sponsible for its appearance but the
undersigned. This admission, I trust,
effectually vindicates Major Potter.

TALKED
A CHEERFUL WOMAN.
From the Democrat, Brazil. Ind.
Every woman cannot be beautiful
but a cheerful face often supplies the
deficiency. But no one can be ehe-erful
and bring joy to others unless they
have perfect health. Fortunately,
science has placed this priceless boon
within the reach of every woman as
the following incident proves:
Mrs. Amanda Robinson, wife of Wil
liam Robinson, farmer and stockman,
near Howesville, Clay County, Ind., is
thirty-two years old and had for sev
eral years been in declining health and
despondent. For three months she
was not only unable to attend to her
domestic duties but too feeble to be up
and about. Today she is in good
health and able to attend to her house
hold affairs. She relates her experi
ence as follows:
"I was afflicted with female troubles
and was in a delicate state of health
i jost my appetite, grew thin and was
greatly depressed. After taking vari
ous remedies without being benefitted
I was induced by i friend to trv Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills.
"Early in the summer of ISO", I pro
cured five boxes of them and before
finishing the second box I began to im
prove and by the time I had taken the
five boxes I was able to go about mv
usual work and stopped taking the
pills.
"Our daughter Anna, twelve vears
old, was also afflicted with decline and
debility. She lost flesh, seemed to be
bloodless and had no ambition. She
took two boxes of the pills and they
restored her appetite, aided digestion
and brought color to her cheeks. She
is now in the best of health. I think
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills the best medi
cine we had in our family and recom
mend them to all needing a remedy for
toning up and rebuilding a shattered
system."
No discovery of modern times has
proved such a blessing to women as Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. They restore
strength and health to exhausted wo
men when every effort of the physician
proves unavailing. These vegetable
pills are everywhere recognized as a
specific for disease of the blood and
nerves.
Sold by all dealers in medicine.
ARTIST M'C03IAS.
Out With His First Study of a Lo
cal Subject.
Frank McComas, the artist, has
knuckled down to work at King Bros.
He turned out yesterday a neat pic
ture frame, the work having special
reference to local subjects. Near the
top is a draped Hawaiian flag and be
neath it the words "Kuu Hae Aloha."
At the bottom is a native grass house
and home scene. At the right is the
receptacle for portraits. The study
is a pretty one and has been admired
by all who have seen it.
Some of Mr. McComas' water color
work is also on exhibition at King
Bros. One, a street scene in Sydney,
is attracting great attention. The
scheme is striking and the style is that
so popular with magazines of the pres
ent day as decorative art. The artist
is engaged upon other local studies,
which will be exhibited shortly.
RAINIER BEER
Is a winner with the "boys." They
drink as much of it as they like
without fear of having a "large" head
next day. Rainier leaves no unpleas
ant after-effects. It's the most delight
ful of all fine beers. On tap or in bot
tles at the Criterion.
