Editor Advertiser: In your issue of Dec. 20th last, under heading "Europe and Japan" you say, referring to the Emperor William's allegorical painting "The i'ellow Peril," "among Eastern clouds be limned the hideous face of the Japanese god of war and in the foreground, facing it, he ranged the nations of Europe, armored of breast and suvorded of hand." Having a reproduction of the Ger man Kaiser's said allegorical painting I find in it no hideous face of Japa nese god of war, on the contrary amid dense black clouds sits in the East the mild benign figure of Buddha. The artist, apparently to make this clear, and probably for other reasons, has the figure backed with pointed tongues of flame. To this figure of Buddha the Archangel Michael is -directly call ing the attention of seven female figures, "armored of breast and sworded of hand," representing the Powers of Europe. Above them stream rays of benignant light from the cross that to the Western world represents so much, also near them flutter a couple of doves, emblematical, I suppose, of the mild and gentle characteristics of armed Europe! The strongly developed religious tendencies of the Emperor William are well known and surely in fluenced the royal artist in his work. At any rate the contrast between the mild light streaming from the cross and the darkness surrounding Buddha are strongly marked. And yet; well, instead of what is uppermost in my mind let me give another's words: I, Buddh, who wept with all my broth er's tears, Whose heart was broken by a whole world's woe, Laugh and am glad, for there is Lib erty 1 Ho! ye who suffer! know Ye su.er from yourselves. None else compels, None other holds you that ye live and die, And whirl upon the wheel, and hug and kiss It's spokes of agony, It's tire of tears, its nave of nothing cess. Behold, I show you Truth! Lower than hell, Higher than heaven, outside the ut most stars, Farther than Brahm doth dwell, Before beginning, and without end, As space eternal and as surety sure Is fixed a Power divine which moves to good, Only its laws endure. It seeth everywhere and marketh all Lo right it recompensed I do one wrong, The equal retribution must be made, Though Dharma tarry long. By this the slayer's knife did stab himself; The unjust judge hath lost his own defender; The false tongue dooms its lie; the creeping thief And spoiler rob, to render. Such is the law that moves to righteous ness, Which none at last can overturn or stay; The heart of it is Love, the end of it Is Peace and Consummation sweet. Obey! eriiy sir, mis morning, you say with truth, "It is a high compliment to Japan that Germany is sending offi cers of the general staff to study her military system." But, Mr. Editor, the Western world has much more to learn from Japan than is to be gleaned by officers studying her military system. "Japan, constant in self-sacrifice and silent in success, has, by exertions of which even those who knew her best had hardly deemed her capable, finally, and without fear of challenge taken her place among the Great Powers of the world. That place she has won not by the force of arms alone, not all great conquering nations of the world have become Great Powers, but by the genius and devotion of her people, a genius which we have by no means fathomed, and a devotion which we have yet to learn to imitate. When barely half a century ago the first foreign representatives set foot in Japan no one-divined that 'that para dise set in the seas' possessed in the hearts and wills of her , people a treasure more marvellous than any that ever found its way from her studios to the Western world. The value of that treasure is now appreciated to the full." Unquestionably so! and only the murkiest mind can fail to see that to treat such a nation with discourtesy or unfairness is simply to court trouble. CHARLES F. HART. Honolulu, Jan. 4 1907. PROTESTANT CHURCH AT THE SETTLEMENT BLOWN DOWN January 8, 1907. Editor Advertiser: Much has been published about the self-sacrificing de votion of Koman Catholic priests and sisters at work in the Leper Settle ment for the unfortunate patients there. No one with any humanitarian spirit would for an instant wish to ut ter a disparaging word concerning those who have given themselves so nobly to this Christ-like work. Indeed when the calamity overtook the Roman Church building there recently not a few Protestants subscribed for its re erection. But many forget and few outside of Hawaii know that for more than forty years Protestant Hawaiian pas tors have been laboring at Kalaupapa with a zeal and self-denial equal to that displayed by any Europeans and that by their faithful service they have cheered and inspired hundreds of their countrymen as only Christian ministers of the same race can. One of the disastrous results of the late storm was the overthrow of the Kalaupapa Protestant church. The following letter from the devoted pastor, Eev. David Kaai, tells the story. I give it in translation: "On the 30th of December, 1906, there came a very strong kona wind to the Settlement and knocked down to the ground the homes of the patients. The same misfortune overtook our church. The bell tower was over thrown and half of the corrugated iron AN OPEN LETTER TO it To American, Dear Fellow Countryman: As this is the time for suggestions, we read your "Carnival Suggestion" with great in terest this morning. I wish I were more of a .politician and less an artist, for I am afraid I have lived in this lovely land of sunshine until I do not know a Republican from a Democrat Now, dear American, 11 1 may call you by name in this way, could you send us your real name in a sealed envelope! We would like the committee on costumes to design you an elaborate Uncle Sam suit. Then with you could be "Cotfee" in a gunny sack and "Sugar" ol paper and "Labor" in an auto. Could you suggest to us the proper appearance of a mayor or an aldermanf None have ever been seen in Honolulu. I have an old history book of England and in it is the pic ture of the mayor of London walking about with a kerosene lantern with eight sides. This would not meet with your progressive American idea, neither would the odor. I think you would prefer an automobile with no perfume and electric lights. The Mardi Gras this year will prob ably be given indoors at night. This is not the time of the year for out of-door events, so perhaps the water carnival part could be given in our beautiful summer time. However, as you say "Society often shapes the events to follow." I am going to turn prophet. I know the first event of history, which will take place in the Oriental-American affair. Let me describe the float which so ciety could drag into the ballroom on noiseless wheels drawn by cables of silken cord. 1 Scene I. The place where the cable may be picked up and cut just out side of Honolulu. Enter training ships. Pick up some thing out of water. PerhapB fishing sampans in distress; perhaps a few other things. Scene II. Honolulu in confusion. Yours for the future welfare of our Territory and the . establishing of the Kilohana Art Institute where Amer ican youths will receive many advan tages. HAWAIIAN AMERICAN. H SPEAKS WELL OF CHAMBER LAIN'S COUGH REMEDY. Mr. John Main, Manager for P. J. Pe tersen & Company, Bloemfontein. So. Africa, makes the following statement for the benefit of the public: "Cham berlain's Cough Remedy has a big sale here, and as we have been handling it for several years, we can confidently say that we sell more of It than we do of any other preparation of that kind." This medicine is especially recommend ed for coughs, colds, croup and whoop ing cough, and can be given to the little ones with absolute security.

AMERICAN roofing was blown into the sea. Up to this date this has not been recover ed. The other half was scattered over the ground and our church was de stroyed. I was there at the time and qufekly called together the Board of Deacons to consider what should be done. It was decided to appoint two committees first a local committee to secure aid on the ground by giving concerts; second a committee to ask help from outside the Settlement. Our own share will be the expense of car pentering and of other work. What we desire from friends elsewhere in the islands is as follows: 30,000 white shingles, 100 lbs. galvanized shingle nails, 600 lbs. of white paint, 25 gal lons raw linseed oil, 5 gallons turpen tine. ' ' We have already begun to ereet the bell tower. The work goes slowly with the few weak lepers who are mem bers of the church who give -their labor." Eev. Mr. Kaai like most of the pas tors who have labored in the Settle ment is not a leper. He is doing a fine work there. We trust that the public will respond to this appeal as liberally and promptly as it did in the case of the burning of the Koman church. Offerings may be sent to the Treasurer of the Hawaiian Board and will be acknowledged with your per mission through the columns of the Advertiser. Yours truly, DOREMUS SCUDDER.
