Tho Journal can of course appreciate the unxiety of tho Pharos to dictate tho contents ol tfco Journal editorial columns but it will frankly assure Its contemporary tbat itu efforts will be futi'.o. Gross mlsropreBonta- lion will sometimes command a state- mont of facts but the Journal does not eee how He political duty requires any defense of a democratic council or a democratic mayor. Upon the mayor who has his party in power rests the burden of defense when hla administration Is attacked and upon him and his party rests all the blame. Nor will any theory of hypnotism or that ho and his party colleagues wore weak minded excuse. Tho Journal recognlx.es. as does e^ery citizen, where responsibility rests. It also recognizes that tho Pharos has deliberately opened up a light on the democrats In the council. > T o one is deceived by tho use of Councilman Boycr'd namo. The Pharos does not hope to deceive any one by tlio uso of that r.amu. It simply wants an excuse to avoid njeotloninsr tho names of the democrats it is really attacking. With Iho situation as it Is tbo Journal cannot bo decoyed into interfering. It is working all rlffht and the Pharos Is maklnfr republican votes every day. Tho Journal recognizes the Pharos' anxiuty, as it before said. When the Pharos says one day that the Journal is silent and does not defend Erie avenue and two days afterwards eays that the Journal is compelled to defend Erie avenue, the Journal having said nothing at all on the subject, it is evident tbat the Pharot' anxiety is great. It is evident that its anxiety is so great that it cares nothing for tho truth and recklessly utters whatever occurs to it. But the public is used to the Pharos misrepresentation. It never quotes the language of the Journal bul says tho Journal says this and tho Journal flays that. Last evening it said: "It (The Journal) says lt> party is divided up into factions." This of course Is a llat-footod He and is referred to simply to show what a Mar the Pharos Is. In other cases it attempts to deceive KB readers in the 6amo way and as most of them cow take tho Journal even th'>8 does not worry the Journal very much. And thus that the Pharos /alb as adocoyand also as a misleadcr and does not disturb the confidence of the Journal in tho common sense of tho people of Lopransport. i A BATTERED BILL.

THE HAWAIIAN REPORT. uj- the Ex-Mliildter Steven* Exonerated Neimto Connnltifp. The contention that Minister Stevens conspired for tho overthrow ol tho Ua- waiian monarchy, and that it would never have fallen but for fear of the power of the United States, finds no favor in the report of the senate committee, of which Mr. Morgan was chairman. This report shows conclusively, upon the evidence elicited by the cora- mittcft in an exhaustive inquiry into the whole case, that the queen was responsible for her own downfall; that the constitution antl her own oath to support it being: the only foundation for her loyal authority, her announcement of a purpose to absolve Jiorself from that oath amounted to complete abdication and left the islands without any actual, efiicient government Tho precise lanfrnafr 0 of. the report on this point is as follows: "LIliUDuiiliinl luid only been kept on Lor throne by the rorbfuvms Kr.or:uict! u' tho white people, vbu ou-iii.'il llfly nii'llou dollars or llio property on llio ishuulH. Jt ralulrc.'il nothing ' but tin; Uc-tc.TmiiH'il uciion of wiiat w:is known 111 thu missionary party to ovcrtnrow llui queen, :ii'.d Hint iictlou bud boon tul;on bcforu BO hlffb na to be proh'bitory. They asked thersfore that the present duties on Imported agricultural implements should bo retained ajfainst Canada. The justice of this is apparent, and for some reason tho finance committee yielded to the demand and prepared the proper amendment. Hut it refused to fro further in this direction by applying tlie Mime principle to other articles. The Wilson bill places ctfps, cabbages ami some other products of the farm on the free list, Canada imposes a duty on such articles. Thnreforu, th« Canadian farmer undpr the Wilson bill <;an send his products free across tho boundary line. The Vermont or New York farmer cnnnot Bend his into Camidi without payiop a duty on them. The KPnate committee refuses so to amend the bill as to retain the old duties where tlio Canadians collect duties. While the Wilson bill places on the free list some Canadian products, it lowers greatly the duties on others, but does not call for concussions in return. For instance the present duty on horses, of which a large number used to bo imported from Canada, is 880 per head. The pundintf tarilt bill changes the duty to 20 per cent, fid valorem. If a horse is worth $00 it hus to pay now *30 duty. Under the Wilson bill it would have to pay $12, or 00 per cent. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U.S. Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE less. This is tlie way in which duties which protect the farmer arc to be reduced by populists and democrats, who claim that they arc the special friends of the farmer. The duty on liay is to be cut down one-half and that on potatoes three- Sfllis. The duty on flour is to lu.eed, though the present Canadian Hity is so hiji-h that there is no market lor any American Uour in the domin- on. In n. few instances tho senate mend incuts arc better than the oripin- ilbill. One of them imposes :i slightly leavier duty on barley than it did and nother takes apples olt the free list, iut, imposes a smalk-r duty than the k'Kiuley laiv. Vet even if the bill were to pass with those amendments tho Canadian, duties \vould be higher than the American ones.

It may be remarked, casually, tbat we are still waiting for the Sentinel to detlno Its position on the question' The Sentinel has repeatedly passed unnoticed the Journal's requests for it to define its position. Does it assert or deny that American agricultural Implements ol the same grade are sold cheaper abroad than In this country?

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBEBS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOB'8 VOTE CAN CONTROL THE BODY.—Pharos, May 6th, 1892. tn'o troops from tho Boston landed. There was no executive boaJ of tho government of Ha- iraii; H liaU periaJioJ." Mr. Morgan concludes, in view of all tho facts, that Minister Stevens was in no sense a party to a conspiracy; that "the recognition (by him) of the provisional g-ovcrnineut was lawful aud authoritative;" and thai his only error was in declaring a protectorate over the islands—an act which, it will be remembered, President Harrison promptly disavowed. There can be no doubt that these conclusions will bo finally ccepted as the judgment of the country as to this whole aitair. They are tue only conclusions possible upon a fair and judicial interpretation of the facts involved. That the report is a practical vindication of the last administration, coei without saying. It applauds tho very acts which Mr. Cleveland was suspiciously alert in condemning-. And it rebukes in explicit terms the departure of the present administration from the settled policy of the country in the support of republican institutions and principles wherever its influence is felt. "When a throne," it says, "foils in any kingdom of tho western hemisphere it is pulverized, and when a scepter departs it departs forever, and American opinion cannot sustain any American ruler in the atr tempt to restore them, no matter how virtuous and sincere tho reasons may be that seem to justify him." In this statement, tho report expresses the undoubted conviction of our people, and that conviction will not be modified or changed by any apodal pleading of "cuckoo" statesmen or any appeals to party prejudice or passion by the organ* of partisan opinion.—Frank Leslie's Weekly.

Dlnanteril That Have Ilofnllnn VeanolB at the United St»tt« Jiuvy, The loss of a single warship attracts more attention than the wrecking 1 of a score of merchantmen. Warships suera to be part of the nation: tliey are public vessels in a double sense, and many of them l>y the exploits they have participated in have endeared their names to the people. When they are lost it is as if an eminent man had died. So great is tlie interest created by the loss of a warship that an erroneous impression is occasioned as to the comparative frequency of disasters in the navy and the merchant service. Tho proportion of warships lost in time of peace to the whole number in commission at any one time, take the world over, is very isme.ll. Years elapse without any disaster involving the loss of an American or liritish warship being reported, and those navies are iilw:iys actively employed ana are exposed to all the perils of tlie sea. Certain wrcc.ks fix themselves forever in the public mind by force of peculiar circumstances attending them, and arc long made tho subject, of speculation. To these tragedies of the sea tlie United States navy lias contributed its share, but not more than its share. The navy since the organization of the federal government has always had enoufrh to do, in peace or war, and very often with not euoiig-h vessels to do it. In the older days, when ships depended entirely on sail power, they tvere exposed to perils against which steam lioiv aids vessels, and total disappearances were correspondingly more common. One of the first vessels of the navy which went down with all on board was the frigate Insurg-cnt, last heard from in -Inly, 1SOO. The bria- Pickering- disappeared iibout the same time. Which perished first, and the manner of their fates, no man knows; tlxiy simply went down and left no sijrn. Tlie famous be re- | sloop-of-war Wasp was last heard from in September, 1SH. Her fate, too, is forever a mystery. As tlio United Stiite.s was at war with Kngluml then, it is barely possible that the tradition that a lii'ili.sh frisrato hail a ni'crht conflict with a smaller vessel,which, making her escape in tho frlooni, appeared to be swallowed ii!> by the sen, hud some foiuulalion aiul refin'retl t.o t,he ImtkJess cniisor. The Knervier, brin^ 1 in^- home the Amr-ncans Commodore IVo.atnr had rescued from slavery in Tunis and Algiers, never T'eachcd port. Tradition says tho ship struck on >,':ui- tneket shoals in the ni^ht ami went to pieces, but no man knows. Fifteen ycurs after the Wasp was n'iven up as lost, her sister ship, the 1 Hornet, disappeared. She is believed to have foiin- cJercil in a sudden Sf|H>.ill in the ffnlf of Mexico. These two ships, the Wasp and Hornet— The (tvo proud nixt^rs of tho sea, In nlory UIH! In doom- were lonpf watehf (1 for a.n<l hoped for. but no tiiiinfrs of tlie fate of either ever came to waiting enrs. Old people still recall that in the days of their youth, when the sound of 11 salute was heard in a sea port, the question would be raised: "Is it the Hornet, come in at last?" The Jjst of vessels lost with all on board, "totally disappeared," also includes the Porpoise, last heard from in September, ISM, in the China seas; the sloop-of-war Albany, which sailed from Aspinwall for New Vork about the same time, never reaching homo: and the Jjcvnnt, which, seen some time in 1800 sailing- into a fop bank in the Pacific, lias never reappeared, though her name was kept, on the navy list until ISOi. The mi.st, of death and silence was wrapped around her and never has been dissipated. It was on board the Levant that; Dr. Jlale made "The Man Without :i. Country" [lie. a clever way of adding more vrai.semblanee to that wonderful narrative, since there were people who immediately faid there always was something mill about, the movements of the Levant, snd as no one survived the ship, the particularity of thestorv could not for a lime be jrainsaid. The fate of all of our v.aval vessels lost, since the war is a matter i>! record. The sloop-of-war Sacramento was wrecked in the bay of IJenjjral soon after the close of the rebellion: no lives were lost. The slot-ship Kredouia was cast upon the Peruvian coast by a tidal wave in 1308 and rmuiy perished. The rrunboat vSuwar.ee was wrecked on an uncharted ledpre off t;ho coast of lirilish Columbia, .Inly 0, ISO?. Tho siiikinpr of tho Oneida, with many of her officers a.nd crew, by the jnaJi steamer Bombay, .'anuury li-S, ISTO, was l disaster and almost a. crime, since the sinking ship was loft to her fate by the vessel that had collided with her. In 1870 the Sapinaw was lost on Ocean island, in tlio Pacific. Juuc IT, 1875, the Saranac was pored by a sunken rock in the north Pacific. November 2t, 1S77, the Huron was lost on the coast of North Carolina, ninety- tiig-ht officers and men perishing-. The next notable disaster occurred at Samoa March 35, 1SSO, when the flag-ship Trenton ».nd the corvette Vandalia were wrecked in a terrible hurricane, and forty-five officers and men lost their lives. Latest on the list comes the noble old Kearsarr^e, closinjr a chapter that includes most, if not all, the disasters that have befallen our warships that were noteworthy either by the fame of the vessels or the attendant circumstances.—Boston Tran script. A JAMAICA CONGREGATION. It In Mlliltly Comported of Women In Gor- ireouMly Colored GOU-DH. In pours the black portion of the congregation. It is composed, for the most part, of women. They aro fjor- (j-eously arrayed in silks and cottons ol the most bewildering brilliancy, with g-olden beehive-shaped ornaments in. their cars and twists of gold about their necks, and all are beaming and smiling- with the utmost complacency and self-satisfaction. With a great many of them the first duty is to take off their boots or shoes. Small wonder, for half of them were in the habit of trudging twenty or thirty miles a day, bare-footed, to and from market, and the other half, if they do not use their feet so hardly, at any rate never confine them. Poor or wanting in proper prido indeed must be that, woman who cannot raise a pair of boots or shoes for Sunday use. It means apony, you may conceive, to keep pinched up in Stiff leather a pair of feet used to free, untrammeled movement, but it has to be borne, and it is borne—for a, few min- utss.
