The Bullotin offers itself to the

Tho Star does not want to nag at
tho Gabinot but it wants it to know
what its real friends think cf some
of its doings
Has it got any real friends Trot
em out
Tho Tiser and opium successful
aborts aro still worrying the publioa
mind Why cant the TUr leave
the successful abort to attend to his
custom i house and get a duty on
opium as Senator Brown says
Thanks I Brother of tho Star
For jour recognition of our spicy
paper Our subscribers the pub
lic generally have already recog
nized it But your kindly disposi
tion is thankfully acknowledged
The Star comes out squarely and
admits the military and polico ex-
uesaos are not wanted and cannot be
afforded But political conditions
regulate tho supply and demaud id
tho field Well Change the poli
tical conditions then
Armstrong wants Hawaii to ex
port butter to Japan to retail at
dO cents gold Considering it re
tails at from 60 to 75 cents gold here
already this seems to be a profitable
scheme and worthy of the other
projects of his great mind
Professor W D Alexanderis now
the President of tho Board of Edu
cation G h Carter Deputy Audi
tor General is appointed as a mom
ber Well it is hoped the jobbery
and favoritism heretofore exhibited
will now bo stoppod Thoro is yet
time to be respeotable and honored
Thoro is every reason to believe
that tho country has entered upon
an era of prosperity in whioh the
narrow political differences will bo
wiped out in the co operation of all
classes to advance our commercial
and industrial interests
And this from the Advertiser
Great Scott We had almost said
Farrington Now we are going to
go it
In response to a request for a sub
scriptionand an advertising card
L A Thurston states that ho will
make us the Bstue yropoeitiou ae La
makes a Chinaman These are bin
own words nud they show his vnlua
tton of an honent and straight for
ward opposition It isnt even a
uiggor in tho woodpile It is only
his favorito Asiatic
Now comes tho considoratibn of
The Independents ploa for a general
amnosty It has gono much against
tho grain with some bitter fooling
supporters of the Government It
has ovon causotf disruption of poli
tical ties But at laet the commu
nity and its leaders havo recognized
that Tin Independent had wisdom
as woll aa honesty and only wanted
what was best foi all Wo have been
here tostay for many years and we
suffer like qtbdre by every wrong
move- Wo only want what is boat
for all N
For sometime tho Advortiser the
Star and tho Bulletin have been fol
lowing our lead in asking for tho re
leaso of the political prisoners Yet
when one already conditionally
pardoned mado a llttlo boyish oa
capade whioh would perhaps othor
wise havo subjected him to a pater
nal spanking the three joyously
howl and notoriously parade the
whole business so as to cause bis re
incarnation in durance vile and sev
eral people to loso their situations
We refused to publish the account
to try and save them
The Star says It is uoderst od
tho Cabinot has under serious con
sideration tho taking of immediate
steps lookiug to removnl so fir as
possible of all aftor eff ots of tho
revolution of January last Wo aro
glad td hear it It is time Let tho
prisoners go Arrange to satisfy all
other causes of grievance And then
let us work together for Tat Indi
pindknts m itto
Gainst the wronx ihit -
For trie tight thntnedasltanc
For tun in t ie dli ahco
And tho good that we can do
In Union is strength and
will bless our efforts
Says tho Advertisor Even if
upon strict construction of the let
ter of the law the Executivo is in
error tho Courts will not refuse to
sustain it In other words the in
dividual citizen is now to havo no
rights as against the oliquo whioh
may happen to hold the executive
reins and if they have our Supremo
Court will not protect them in them 1
Perish the individual Let the Ex
ecutive commit any error thoy must
be upheld no matter who suffers
Wait till Mr Judds private indivi
dual interests suffer at the hands of
this or succeeding executives What
will the court say then
W N Armstrong has now solved
the small farmer question Even
Dole couldnt do it Let us raise a
statue to this public benefactor
But stay How is it to bo done
Let tho small farmers raie ootton
As Armstrong statos
Mr H M Whitney knows about
it and says it oan be done When
our peoplo are well over the sugar
drunk auct are willing to look at
small but profitable things they
will see money in this This cotton
is a cash article cash at the door if
necessary aud is prepared with any
intelligent skill as Mr Whitney
The sentences are somewhat un
intelligible but that is no mattor
Our only Labor Commisrioner has
said it- himself and it must bo so
The development of manufactur
ing in Japan baa created a demand
for wool It is imported from
Australia and the demand for it is
rapidly increasing Why is not th
Hawaiian wool in the Japanese mar
ket Tho Japanese aro becoming
expert manufacturers of shoes and
import leather from England and
tho United States Why aro not
the Hawaiian hides tanned and sent
to Japan and manufactured shoes
taken in return t There is soma do-

W N Armstrong has beon to
Japan also to several places in that
trchipelagjc ompire Ho now writes
iboutft in the Advertisor by tho
double column Amongst other
things he advises this country to
eeud mm presumably under salary
to study tho conditions there He
shows that tho Chamber of Com
merce of Lyont France ha appro
priated 20000 for the purpose of
sending experts to study the rising
commerce nf Japan and that M Ps
in Australia urge their countrymen
to do tho same Why he wants some
one rent there is bird to see when tho
othor places have not had a resident

Labor Commission salary grab
Statos the Star in reference to
pardoning political prisoners
It tfills it with a firm be
lief of power and authority
and tho conviction that in ord nary
and proper course of events tho
Great Government of Great Britain
will coutinuo bo a friend aud ally
and valuable adviser This makes
the itepublio feel safe aud solid
The Eopublio 1b not losing
sleep in worry over the outoomo of
its Durrell indemnity disputo with
tho United Mates Tho country
has not yet passed upon the mili
tary commission but there havo
Hiioh things over there and in Eng-
land they do not
What that means we do not know
and from the wording wo cannot
make out But if it msans pulling fea
thers out of the Eagles tail the Star
had better crawl back into its shell
It is no use now trying to work the
British Lion up as a protector
against the AmericanEagle
The following is the Stars state
ment on the political situation
Instead of showing any inclina
tion to back up the threats of some
of ber hot bed subjects in Hawaii
Britain has refrained from so ding
gun boats and warships and cruisers
and torpedo destroyers to collect
damapes avenge outragos upon
British subjects and wipe out tho
records of tno court martial
On the contrary Great Britain
has said to Hawaii If aubjoota to
the Quon plot against your Re
public or take the field in arms
against it or aid ordbit or counsel
revolution against it you can try
thorn by military commission banish
them subject them to all the exi
gencies of martial law Of course
no innocent man shall be harmed
Whon there is conviction it must be J
on sufnoient ovidenoo But wo re
cognize fully your right to qulokly
summarily even harshly resent any
assault on your government and we
find that your military commission
is a legal and regular tribunal
We doubt if the Star oan find
authority for ite quoioliou xuark
Yet possibly If not liternlly correct
the sentiment is no doubt correct
that Englishmen individually will
not bo upheld in oudeavorhig to
overthrow any Government is nt
poaco with Groat Britain
Thus writes W N Armstrong in
tho Advertiser
Tho American flag wont help us
Go to Santa Fe Now Monoo where
the American has boen trium
phantly waving sluco tho torritory
was wrested from Mexico and the
polico will tell you not to walk in

Armstrong ready to rat now
Everybody Koiug to desert the sink

Small doings show small minds
And in matters whichconcern the
welfare pf all tho latter should not
appear Yot we find that Louis
Marshall a political prisoner and
a boy of twenty at that whoso par
don has been granted on condition
of his leaving the country in onco
more relegated to the malarial depot
of Oahu prison Xet us recite the
incidents Marshall - with all the
wisdom and experience of his age
went out with the rebels to as st in
the emeute of Jan 7th Later he
surrendered with others Young
and all an he wan his Bentence was
20 years His health sucoumbed to
the infernal unhealthy surroundings
of Oahu prison He was removed
to the Queens Hospital for njedical
treatment even the authorities

convalescent state with the usual
desire of the sick for change and ex
citement knowing that he had beon
pardoned thotjoy induces his nurse
to snd for a back and take him out
for an airing Any medical man
would havoy endorsed the request
and said by all means humor him
It will assist in his recovery to

tho official world is turned upside
down A new conspiracy is discover

It cannot bo denied that tho
war cloud which hangs over tho

fact that tho opd of each con r

with bloodshed nnd strifoj in

Tho creat powers of Europe to-

is that diplomacy to day is using

indiscreet imperial mustor is
drifting into tho doceptiv6 maol

which all past experience all
knowledge gained through tho
horrors of war aro forgotten and
whore only falso sentiment and

And while tho giants got

and that is that no army will

penrfablo bicycle And no won
der that the monarchial coun
tries of Europe prefer tho Mori
