ITS SPHERE There are spheres of advertising aa well as of political influence. The clearest defined are those of the daily newspapers. The Republican with Its large and constantly Increasing circulation is read by all classes, but it has a great influence with tbe sturdy and numerous middlq class the people who buy the bulk of the goods and whose patronage la indispensable to the general idvertlsef. The Republican gives the best advertising value in Honolulu for the price charged. Live news on every page and only eight pages. Poor old Tiser! Things do not seem all in these days to come its way at . a its dotage. It Uxj Territory holds the Channel wharf by tolerance only, what is the use worrying over it? The political situation in the Fourth district doesn't seem to be to the of the Advertiser and Its political clique. This combination is never happy unless it rules. When not ruling, it sum lis for ruin. The American republic is founded upon manhood, not money. The citizen counts not his dollars. There Is no property test; property is oy law. These are matters the Advertiser seems Inclined to overlook. There is nothing small about the of Jliio. They will not suik in their tents, but will bo at the Territorial convention in force, demanding county and municipal government from the uext legislature. That is their important light home rule. H the wireless telegraph will wors: over the sea a distance ol sixty miles, us the -North German Lloyd steamer Kaiserln Maria Theresa Is reported to have doue, there is every reason to hope Xor success at greater distances irom permanent stations. Notwithstanding the many calls for money upon the American people, the committee of one hundred of New York city has raised a quarter or a million of dollars tor the starving people of India. The cry of the unfortunate always leaches the heart of America, ?. healthy and hopeful fact. When the hearts of the people are right the nation is all right. They have a law in Greece that a man sentenced to death must serve two years In prison awaiting execution. The idea seems to be to make the punishment more severe, the contemplation ol one's dissolution for two years being anything but cheering. The plan is not a bad one for another reason; it seems to us that it would be ' likely to present the occasional of men convicted on circumstanthJ evidence. There is no truth in the story that the Volcano House is to be abandoned. It was an idle rumor. Instead, the company owning It will make Improvements and render the place still more attractive. With a rapidly expanding of population and the steady growth of Individual wealth the patronage of. the place ought to increase rapidly. Aside from its scenic and other attractions It offers a happy refuge from the sometimes too tropical climat of ins valleys. 11 i - v The Belgian hare fad, which took the form of speculation en tbe maialaaJ. has collapsed. No more fancy prloas are In vogue and the price of r&bblti has fallen to 3 and 4 cents a pound. The meat of this hare Is exoaUeat food, but he is so eaormoua a oraedwr taxt he hopelessly ruisc the -Market.

Hawaii ougit to guard against , this, peat The original republican revolutionists of Hawaii or those who galierec tae ttuit ol that revolution are not nearly as happy, politically, today a they nert six and een years ago. The coterie ' ruied tne rooat then. Insre was no one to say them nay. Now the humoiest uzaxt!, aiUi his ballot in his hand, is as ioeriul as the mightiest revoititiunist ana native combinations, wnile they are to be deprecated, have eminent precedent. Tne natives appear to have been apt pupiis of the provisional government people ana of the methods of the republic, and tnose who taugnt them so will have utile cause tor complaint today, sims, li&e curses, come home to roost. 'i he band has had a busy week and has given thousands or visitors as well as resifieuts gnut pleasure. Captain lierger s band is one of the institutions of the city just as much as the capitol and the court house. It is a fixture and wili be retained as one of the A'ery best things that have come down to the Territory ironi the monarchy. The concert on limma square Monday evening and on 1 nomas square on Tuesday evening were musical treats instrumental' and vocally and the strangers within our gates were largely Impressed with social lite in Honolulu by our music The execrable service which the telephone company has been giving Honolulu was fully discussed before the Chamber of Commerce yesterday. The ventilation was timely and every person using the line will hope that the promises of reform will be speedily redeemed. The fault may be largely with the superintendent, but not wholly. A little more intelligence and courtesy and a great deal more of discipline In the central exchange would help out amazingly. The congested condition of the narrow streets in the down town, or of the citycertainly call for a remedy of some sort. A conference between the superintendent of public works, the high shenif and leading merchants ought to result in a plan that would bring some relief, at least. Latest Sugar Prices.

We do not admit for a moment tint the candidates for legislative honors nominated by Wilcox &.Co. will be elected. We doubt that they can carry the votes on Hawaii, Maui or Kauai, where he has succeeded in making himself unpopular, but it will be to get the Hawaiians to vote for men who publicly have declared themselves republicans or democrats. Remember that right here in Honolulu this morning -2,156 voters were registered and out of that number 1,700 were Hawaiians. What can you do against such overwhelming odds besides feeling sure of disastrous defeat.' The missionary wing cares nothing for the split In the republican party. They will stand aloof from the election, see the Sewall clique defeated, the independents win, and then they will work on the members of the legislature as only they know how to work. And, alas! heretofore they have won every time. Tonight's Concert. The band will give another of its concerts at the Hawaiian hotel grounds this evening, commencing at 7:30. Captain Berger has arranged for two vocal solos in the program. It will be a concert well worth hearing. PART L Overture Poet and Peasant (by request) Suppe.

Atheriou assured uie meeuug that the management was uomg all it possibly could to perfect tho system. the universal dissatisfaction with the telephone system was voiced by Mr. awanzy, which he very properly thought was a matter for the chambur to discuss, ne said that nobody could admit that it was a good system. men out of a hundred w ould call it execrable. The telephone was no longer a toy, but an important business convenience. He was a little surprised at the gall ol the Mutual lelephone Co', in asking pay for sucn a sei vice. As a representative of some tew snaies he had never been informed of tne company's hnaucial atfairs, so aid not know whether lack of means was the cause of ineniciency. A vigorous protest ought, however, to be made by the chamber. It did come within the chamber's concern. He woula suggest that a protest should bo sent to the company, li was Ume some public action was taken he thought, ihe telephone was a publw Institution. Mr. Atherton took exception to Mr. Swanzy's remark about not getting information. He coultTinforni himself in hfteeu minutes at the company's office. While the speaker kneu; the dulicultits and complaints, the company hoped to have an expert here before many weeks to put the system in proper shape. In changing from one system to another the work had got a little beyond the superintendent. Mr. Swanzy denied having intimated that he could not get information. He thought it would be better to get an expert to take permanent hold instead of merely sotting the system right. It was agreed that the secretary should write the company In line witn the views expressed. A note was addressed to High Sheriff Brown and Superintendent calling attention to the crowded and congested condition of several streets and thoroughfares of this city. The Chamber asked that policemen be stationed at various corners, and that all heavy traffic be excluded from Fort street as much as possiDle. HUB HUSBAND'S ASHES. They Were Carried in This Toledo Woman's Dress Suit Case. (From the Philadelphia Press.) Because the crowd about the outward bound baggage office of the Southern Terminal station at Boston was ex- v ceedingly dense and because the baggage checks reading Vanhousen, Mass., and Vanduesen, Mass., happened to hang side by side back of the rail, the officials of the baggage department of the Boston & Albany railroad have been in a perfect fever of excitement and activity since Wednesday after noon. Wednesday afternoon Mrs. Lawrence Goode ot Toledo, Ohio, arrived in this city the morning of that day, together with a party of friends from the west, en route for ML Desert and Bar Har bor, went to the south station intending to take a train for Vanduesen for a days stay with friends of her family at that place. She checked a suit case for Vanduesen, as she supposed, and boarded the train. But when Mrs. Goode arrived at her destination and applied at the baggage room for her suit case it was not forthcoming. She waited until two more trains rolled in without a sign of the looked for piece of luggage. In great excitement Mrs. Goode wired the baggage master at the south station. The wired description of the suit case was sent on to all the stations along the Berkshire division ofthe Boston & Albany, and the missing- property was finally located yesterday morning. Mrs. Goode called In answer to a message that her property would reach this city early yesterday morning. She entered the oSee radiant and joyous. She soon had the case opened and, diving deep Into the case, she lifted a beautlfnl rosewood casket from the bottom and pressed It to her bosom with tears In her eyes as she thanked tbe officials of the baggage department for their efforts to find and restore the dresa suit case. - As she repacked her things she told the story of the casket. The Talue she attached to it centered not in its as an example of the Jewelers' ait, bat In the fact that it the" ashes of her husbaad. His deatii two years ago'cut short a charming married life. Faithful to a promise made to aim oa his death bed, Mrs. GoedC'tad his remains cremated and aa stac bees Inseparable from, the treasured rosewood casket costtintag them.
