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:

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.

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,

natives appear to have been apt pupiis

'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

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.

A IVote ot Warning.
v
(.From the Independent.)
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.

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
