The Oregnniau cynically remarked
when the state fair closed that there
was nothing shown hut u few unim
portant products of the farm. In
like spirit a farmer ly remarked
nfter the late mechanics fair had
closed, that he saw nothing hut a
few plows, mowers, reapers Hiid the
like that he had Ims-ii following hII
riiimmer. He was tired and had
wrinkles in his htaiy.
The latest ruuinr from Washing
ton is to the eirii't that the adminis
tration Is hedging on tlit llawaii:iu
policy. I ne democrat of prominence,
who heard the report that there
might have hcen a hitch, said: "I
trust to liod, for the sake of my
country and for theakeof my party,
that Willis has found some excuse
for delay. It is our only salvation."
A wild rumor was circulated that
Cleveland's cabinet was not a unit on
his Hawaiian policy, and that Hoke
Smith had resigned, ltit later inter
views r-howed lliaton the surface at
least there is harmony. Strange that
isiich untruths should train currency.
The guess is ventured, nntu ithsland
ing the denials, that the president's
political household is not ipiite as
harmonious in the president would
like to have the public believe.

Those savants certainly had cause of
i-oinplaiiit. The president would
probably refuse to do so and (five as a
reason that the destiny of civilization
wills otherw Ise.
Ill a strong article the Oreonian
points out that the white residents
of the Sandwich Islands have their
destiny in their own hands. Anions
the paragraphs is this one that clear
ly states what a position Cleveland
is seeking to occupy :
"Should the president make mich
a fatal mistake as to try to displace
the provisional government by force,
they should still resist, sacrificing
theirlives, Ifnced he, to the defence ot
their state from such unwarrantable
and outrageous aggression. They
will he overcome by the well-armed
and disciplined forces of the Ameri
can ships, of course, but the act will
arouse a storm of popular fis-liug in
the Cuited Stati-s that will assure
the survivors the sympathy and
supiort of the American people, so
soon as a popular election admits of
of its manifestation. The killing of
it few white men of American blood
in defense of their right of self-government,
attacked by reluctant
ollicersand sailors under peremptory
orders from Washington, would
unite the American people in a deter
mination to dispose of Queen I.iliuo
kalaui and the president together.
Tin? president can only deose the
provisional government, unless it
consents to he doxcd, by making
war upon it. To make war without
authority of congress would subject
him to impeachment. All the mem
bers of the provisional government
have to do, then, is to defend their
position against w hatever attack.

the editorial columns of three lead

tell plainly their thoughts:
"If Minister Willis presents his

The California Midwinter Inter
national Fxx)sitiou will go down
in history as. an illustration of the
most rapid development of a great
enterprise that the world has ever
seen. It was not until the last day
of June, l!i:, that the proposition to
hold an international fair in San
Francisco, in midwinter, was even
so much as thought of. u the eve

t 'liicago, when several of the foreign
commissioners to the Columbian ev-
Hisitioii were present, some one ot
the so -akers incidentally remarked
that part of the loreign exhibits j
would proliaoly go trout t liicago to l

a question in the minds of the people
of California, ami the dwellers in
neighboring statts are fast awaken
