It is to be presumed that the President

Ed. The Independent:
I begin to think you are right,
when you assort that we won't be
annexed, but it cuts mo to tho heart
to admit it. I wouldn't believe it,
old fallow, until I heard that Sewall
has bought a span of horeos, and
that Haywood wants the
office repainted because
ho is to occupy it during the next
throe years. Say, nint wo going to

people, thoy may congratulato
thomselvos that thoro is at least ono

worthy of the position; and it is to
be hoped that Mr. W. T. Jackson,
who has boon identified with tho

Board of Health.
President Smith prosided over
yesterday's mooting of tho Board of
Hoalth. The coBt of tho olectrio
light plant was taken up for consideration
and an explanation made
that tho original estimate was
$809.60, but the actual cost of the
Cassidy plant $1,477. Tho President
of tho Board having supported tho
increased 'expenditure on tho
grounds of necessity and economy,
it was deoidod to pay tho Westing
Houso Company $800 on account
and to lot them wait for the balanoo
until nn appropriation had beon
made. Tho Board accepted an in
vitation to examine the plant when
the noxt batch of coolies arrived,

Japan's' Protest Against Hawaiian
Japan is a nation for whioh our
Government has always entertained
warm sympathy and our peoplo a
cordial regard. In view of the past
relations of the two tho tone of
Japan's protest suggests that it is
inspired by some one more subtlo
than herself. This supposition receives
a cortain measure of support
from tho sudden editorial outburst
of a St. Petersburg paper against
our Hawaiiau policy. There
is still another supposition that
may be found tonablr, and if so
found may involve very srious consideration.
For some time past
thero have been underground
of European jealousy of the
United States. Those come from
the absolutist quarters, Russia and
Germany, and aro eohoed in France,
whioh mtkos repealing signals for
St. Petersburg. We havo soon in
the Russian, the German, and the
Freuoh preBs suggestions that it
might be necessary for all Europe
to combine lo curb tho Monroe
doctrine aud tho expansion of the
United Statos. Thoy aro particularly
solicitous about Cuba. By "all
Europe" they mean the three Powers
montionod, for they know that in a
oollisiou with them England's interest
would be to stand with us for
Monroeism, as she did sevonty years
ago, Unless all sigus fail tho United
Statos may have to remind the absolutist
sympathisers of tho precedents
of Monroe's time. For ourselves,
wo should not regard the unveiling
of the real sentiment of the
Russian Government for tho United
States ae a misfortune. Of nil tho
sentimental reeds wo are inclined to
lean on Russian friendship is the
weakest. Boston Transcript (ind. Rep)

Honolulu. Sept. 0, 2807,
So many' different styles of
oil stoves have been put on
the market during the past
ten years, that it was with
difficulty that the best could
be determined until tho Primus
was introduced a year ago.
This style burns a kerosene
vapor and is non-explosive ;
you can turn it upside down
and no danger -will result .
The oil tank cannot be filled
while burning as the removal
of the filler cap extinguishes
the Jlamo instantly.
In point of simplicity it has
no equal for it has no wick,
burns any grade of kerosene
and tho ilame can bo regulated.
It produces a heat of
from 2100 dog. to 2G00 dog.
Fahr. and consumes one quart
of oil in five hours consecutive
burning. This means an expense
of 2 cents per hour.
Nothing but solid braES is
used m the manufacture of
the Primus, and when in operation
it is absolutely odorless.
It will bring a quart of water
to boiling in 3 minutes.
"We havo half dozen styles,
singles, double and triple
burners; extensions for singles
so that three vegetables
may be cooked at once.
Soldering irons, Hat iron heat
ers, ovens and everything
cessary to cook a meal.
