SATURDAY. OCTOBER 11.
from th 8- r. Bulletin. 8ept- 26.
Tho following telegram from New York i clip
ped from a morning paper:
It U rumored bere that a grand effort will b-
mads at the next aruion of Congress to abrogate
the treaty with the Sandwich Inlands. It U claim-

Manita Sugars are aent to Honolulu, where tbej
are transshipped to San Francisco as native Sugar,
thus evading duty- Oar Sugar reOaers are mucb
exercised on this subject, and it is said tbey pro
' pose sending a thousand barrels to the California
market to compete with tbe-fefloeri there.
There are two features in the store paragraph
that it la well to look square in the face. One of
th4 relates to an early abrogation of the treaty
L and the other to an alleged violation. The treaty
between the United States and the Hawaiian Is
land was signed by Utys S. Grant on the 31 ta
May, 1872. It is for a fixed term, tbat no power
Can shorten, unless for extraordinary cause. Ar
ticle V referiog to the duration of the treaty.
. says that it shall remain in force for seven years.
fJro the date at which it may come into opera
tions ; and futber. until lht expiration of twelve
months after either of the high contracting pow
ers shall give notice to the other of its wi.-b to ter
minate tbt same, each of the high contracting
powers being at liberty to give such notice to the
1 other at the end of the said term of seven years,
or at any time thereafter." Tbi treaty was rati
fied by the American Congress on the 8tb May,
1876. by a vote of 118 to 101. and was shortly
afterward officially proclaimed to be in operation
by President Grant. As will be seen, it has yet
. Seat ly four years to run before a notification fcr a
and should such notice be given at the expiration
of the seven years, it would still remain in opera
tion for another year. We think tbU settles one
point raised ia the above paragraph.
- As to any smuggling operations, the story seems
ridiculous. It ia baed purely on increased im
ports Into the United States from Honolulu.
Prior to tbe existence of the treaty, the surplus
' Hawaiian crop was exported to California, Oregon.
British Colnmbla and Aastialia. . Tbe treaty cut
off British Columbia and Australia, and Califor
nia and Oregon got tbe entire surplus. Tbe re
; cent arrangement made by tbe San Francisco re
' flnera baa rendered if desirable to send nearly all
the Stio-ar to this oort. The treaty has also great
ly stimulated the production of Cane at tbe Is
lands. The exports of tbe Sugar from tbe Hawaii
an Islands since 1856 have been aa follows :

- The bulk of the crop goes forward in the Irst six
months of th year. There arw obstacles in tbe
way of successfully smuggling Manila or other
dutiable Sugar Into the United States through tbe
Hawaiian Islands. Ia the first place, it la impos
sible to grade any other Sugar so nearly to the
Hawaiian standard aa to deceive tbe Cur.om
linna Inarwctors. In the second place, there are-
"only three porta of entry at' the Hawaiian Islands
where a landing could be effected. These aie all

of annexing Holland to the German Empire. By
way of accomplishing it as peacefully as possible,
it u said that he will restore AUace and Lorraine

to enlarge the territories of bis sovereign. M one

In the present instance there are grounds for
considering tbe rumor not an idle one. Like Rus
sia, Germany want more coast room, in order to
develop her marine interests and enlarge her com

worse than the seizure of Schleswig-lloletein in
1864, simply because they were conveniently ad

There is no reason for believing tbat Holland
would be less prosperous under the vigorous rule

would -be cf vast advantage to the Empire. Tbe

Trade Frauds and Food Adulteration!.
"Die following on this subject is copied from
the San Francisco AVu-s LsllT :
In pursuance of our exposures of food adulter
ation, we come now to epeak of a very simple
article which in this State, above all others,
ought to be obtained in a perfectly pure condi
tion. We refer to olive oil. In tbe many loud
vaunting? of tbe productions of California, our
writers are never weary of telliog us tbat "this is
tbe land of tbe olive, the pomegranate," etc, yet
we are now in a position, to demonstrate tbat
there is but little pure olive oil to be obtained
in this city. This is an extraordinary fact, and
serves to illustrate our position that fraud per
meates every business and enters into almost
everything we eat, drink and wear. Now for
the proof. We obtained from different dealers
six different samples of olive oils, with the fol
lowing results, as ascertained by Professor Thus.

Tbe above are all vegetable oils, and, so far as
that goes, are less injurious than oils adultera
ted with lard or other animal oil. All such as
contain lard oil are unfit for ordinary food,
especially in any warm climate. Still, there is an
abominable fraud in vending cotton-seed oil, pop
py oil, or rape-seed oil, etc., for olive oil. ibe
cost of pure olive oil, such as is supplied by Brit
ish firms. like Crosse & Ulackwell, is a woolly
different thing from tbe rubbish described by our
analyst. From time immemorial, before the
rtoachian Deluge, the olive was most probably
in cultivation, and its fruit in esteem by Eastern
people. Wherever in the Scriptures oil is men
tioned, it means " olive oil. ine Hebrew race
are noted for the esteem in which they hold
olive oil, and tbe multitudinous uses to which
they put it in cooking, and it certainly is, when
pure, s moat wnolesome condiment, it is, more
over, endowed with properties of a most delicate
nature. It is nearly as sensible to sunlight as &
photographer's plate, and soon assumes proper
ties that render it unwholesome. It bas a capa
bility for easy digestion, a fine relish, and is al
most a necessity in preparing salads. These
qualities are all its own ; no other vegetable oil
approaches it. rsow, to sr.ii lor it as we know
aod under its name, with a flourish of advertis
ing testimonials, this cheap rubbish, is more than
a fraud it is lying, Dareiacea roguery ana in
our mind ought to be made a eause to go to a
jury as a crime.
I here are several kinds of bitters sold in this
State, which are bepuffed in all available places,
and Lave a large consumption. In tbe Sacra

are commonly used, because of their supposed
cheapness, as a substitute for quinine. That

that most useful of medicines, ia a fact beyond
peradventure. Tbat they are not even a valua

are simply alcohol, colored with burnt sugar,
and flavored with coriander. If not absolutely
injurious, they are at least valueless for tbe pur

States was instituted in 1775 by the admission of
thirteen colored men to a travelling Lodge at

The Most Worshipful Sovereign Grand Lodge of
California was created in 1874 through the con
solidation of tbe Grand Lodge and Independent
Grand Lodge, colored Masons having bad organi

the officers recently elected to this body was held
Tuesday night at San Francisco. Tbe following
officers were regularly installed by the Past Grand

at 10 o'clock and lasted nntil nearly midnight.

HOW JAY COOKE STATED CP THX NATION 8
WHEN PRESIDENT LINCOLN FELL.
A Quaker capitalist of Philadelphia gives tbe
following reminiscence :
It was Saturday morning, April 15, 1865, tbat
Jay Cooke was sitting in a car going from bis res
idence to bis down-town office in Philadelphia.
A telegram was banded bim and it announced
the assassination of President Lincoln on the
night before at Ford's Theatre. Mr. Cooke read
it and then handed it to me without saying a
word. He remained in silent thought until he
left tbe car.
The situation was a grave one, and Jay Cooke
appreciated tbe disastrous enect tbe news would
possibly have upon the credit of tbe Government,
lie had charge of tbe sales of its securities, and
tbey must be maintained at any cost to bim. No
one knew bow extensive was this conspiracy
against the life of tbe nation, as yet, and tbe na
tion would hardly recover from the shock of tbe
dreadful intelligence for some days. Mr. Cooke's
resolution was soon taken. Id those days tele
graph offices were not so numerous as they are
now, and he went some distance to nnd one.
The nearest one was at the New York depot.
and from there he telegraphed his agents at New
York, Boston, Pittsburg. Cincinnati and other
points over this country and to London to ad
vance the price on Government bonds, which
were quoted at a little below par, a half cent
above the quotations of the day before. He then
went to bis office, and after advising with those
interested with bim, be telegraphed tbe Secretary
of the Treasury informing bim of wbat he had
done, and asked that the Government take action
to sustain bim in bis effort to maintain the bonds
upon tbe market. He received no answer, but in
the afternoon be telegraphed his agents to advance
the price of bonds a quarter of a cent more. n
the evening be received a telegram from Wash
ington saying tbat everything was in confusion
and the Cabinet could not be gotten together
Ou Saturday aod Monday morning there was a
generally shaky feeling among speculators, and
large amounts of bonds were offered for sale at
tbe suscription agencies.
These were bought in promptly by Mr. Cooke
until be bad purchased between $17,000,000 and
$20,000,000 of bonds. On Monday business
was generally suspended, and tbe bank and stock
markets were closed. In tbe morning Mr. Cooke
telegraphed bis agents to make another advance
of half a cent, lie also telegraphed his brother
Henry D. Cooke, at Washington, D. C, to get a
Karantee of support from tbe Government,
ter in the day a dispatch from the Secretary of
tbe Treasury informed him that he would be ful
ly supported in bis operations. On Tuesday tbe
nales of 7-30s amounted to $2,701,300. and they
steadily increased at prices at or little below par.
As soon as men saw that Jay Cooke was takiug
all that was offered and that prices were firm and
advancing, courage returned, and tbe sales and
prices of bonds were maintained. 1 remarked to
Mr. Cooke that he bad been taking a great risk,
and be gently replied that if the price of bonds
were not sustained, they would be returned from
Europe in such quantities as to completely over
whelm the nation, and if it conld not sustain iU
self and was broken dow n, it mattered little what
became of bis property. But as it turned out,
no bonds came back from Europe, and tbe impe
tus given them bv bis course run the quotations
higher than they bad been before the death of
London, August 23. Tbe Standard's Vienna

colored laborers in tbe North, mostly for farms.
One-fourth of this number will fiod homes and work
in the Western States. This extraordinary demand

farm laborers to miping regions further West.

tbe late W. Shakespeare bas it, he took com
mand in our home. Everything was subservient
to him. lie regulated tbe temperature, he regu
lated the servants, be regulated me. For the first
six months of that precious bpy's existence he
bad me up, on an average, six times a night.
"Mr. Bliffins," said my wife, "bring a light,
do : tbe baby looks strangely ; I am afraid it will
bave a fit!"
Of course the lamp was brought, and of course
the baby lay sucking bis fist, like tbe little dear
tbat be was.
" Mr. Bliffins," said my wife, " I think I feel
a draught of air; I wish you would get up and
see if the window is not open a little, because
baby might catch cold."
Nothing was tbe matter with the window, as I
very well knew.
" Mr. Bliffins," said my wife, just as I was
going to sleep again, 44 that lamp as you have
placed it shines directly in baby's eyes; strange
tbat you bave no more consideration."
I arranged the light and went to bed again.
Just as I was dropping to sleep my wife said
44 Mr. Bliffins, did you think to buy that pare
goric to day for tbe baby ?"
"My dear," said I, "will you do me the injust
ice to believe tbat 1 could overlook a matter so
essential to tbe comfort of that inestimable
She apologised . very badsomely, but made her
anxiety the scapegoat. I forgave her, aod with
out saying a word to her I addressed myself to
44 Mr. Bliffins," said my wife, shaking me.
44 you must not snore so ; you will wake the
44 Just so just so," said 1, half asleep, think
ing I was Solon Shingle.
"Mr. Bliffins," said my wife, 44 will you eet up
and band that warm gruel from the nurse lamp
for baby ? Tbe dear child ! If it wasn't for bis
mother l don t know what be would do. How
can you eleen so. Mr. Bliffins?"
44 1 suspect, my dear," said 1, 44 tbat it is be
cause 1 am tired."
44 Oh, it's very well for you men to talk about
being tired," said my wife. "I don't know what
you would say if you bad to toil and drudge like
a poor woman with a baby."
I tried to soothe her by telling ber she had no
patience, and got up for the poeset. Having
aided in answering the baby's requirements, 1
stepped into bed again, with the hope of Bleep
" Un dear, said that inestimable woman, in
great apparent anguish, 44 how can a man, who
bas arrived at the honor of a live baby of his own,
sleep, when be don't know that the dear creature
will live until morning.'
I remained silent, and after a while, deeming
mat Airs. Jjlimns had gone to sleep, 1 stretched
my limbs for repose. Haw long 1 slept I don't
know, but I was awakened by a furious iab in
the forehead with some sharp instrument. I
started up, and Mrs. Bliffins was sitting up in
bed, adjusting the baby's dress. She bad, in a
state of eemisomnolence, mistaken my bead for
nocturnal pincushion. I protested against such
treatment io somewhat round terms; pointing to
several perforations in my forehead. She told me
I should willingly suffer such trifling ills for the
sake of the baby. I insisted upon, it that 1 did
not think my duty as a parent to the immortal
required tbe surrender of my forehead as a pin
cushion. This was one of the many nights pass
ed in this way. The truth was, that baby was
wbat every man's first baby is an autocrat, abso
Too Many Snake Bites.
During the haying season, says the Detroit
Free Press, an honest old farmer out on. the
Gratiot road employed three young men from the
city to help cut and store his timothy. None of
them liked work half as Veil as whisky, and
conspiracy was the result. About noon one day
one of the trio fell down in the field, shouting
and kicking, aod the other two ran to the far
mer with wild eyes and called out that their com
panion had been bitten by a rattlesnake, and
must bave whisky. The farmer rushed to tbe
bouse and brought out a quart, and the three
harvesters got a big drink all around on the
sly, while the 44 bitten " one had a lay-off of
half a day. Tbe next forenoon a second one was
bitten, and again the farmer rushed for his bot
tle. It was a nice little job for the boys, and on
the third day the third one put in his claim for a
bite, and yelled for the whisky bottle. Tbe far
mer took tbe matter very coolly this time, and
after making particular inquiries as to the sise
of the snake, location of the bite, the sensation,
and so forth, he slowly continued :
Day before yesterday James was bitten and
drank a quart of good whisky. Yesterday John
was bitten and drank a quart more. To-day
you'ye got a bite, and the best thing you can do
is to smell tbeir breaths and lay in the shade
while the rest of us eat dinner.''
' Tbe man got well jn ten minutes, and not
another rattlesnake was seen during tbe season.
A company of Zulus an impi, as tbe war cor
respondent would say has come to signal grief
in Dublin. Encouraged, no doubt by the sympa
thizing tone of the anti-Englisb press, these hardy
warriors invaded tbe Ulundi of Ireland, and at
one of the great public kraals, displayed them
selves, their ox-hide shields and their terrible as
segais to all persons possessed of the desirable
curiosity and the necessary shilling. Business
.becoming dull some of the Friendly Zulus were
sent out in a carriage by their enterprising man
ager to beat up a public, even as Little Nell was
paraded through the town by Mrs. Jarley. Be
coming thirsty they stopped like mere Britons at
a beerseller's kraal and were practically compar
ing the stout of Dublin with the larger of their
country, when along came an old woman whose
son had been killed at the rout af the Twenty
fourth Regiment. This simple-minded woman
gathered an apronful of stones from the newly
macadamized roadway and as eooa as tbe Zulu
impi debouched from the kraal she began bom
barding them with rocks, pouring in a musketry
fire of curses at the same time with Hibernian
vigor. The Zulu shields thus tested proved not
to be made oi ox-hide tough as iron, but of mere
painted canvas, and in spite of the frightful as
segais which, when on exhibition, . the Zulus
brandished so menacingly, they were useless.
The old woman routed tbe savages and put them
to ignominious flight, soundly confuted and round
ly cursed. If she only had been with the Prince

Spritnalism A New Departure.
A book of the moat absorbing interest is an
nounced aa nearly ready," and but fur me trifling
Circumstance, we Standard) should cordially ad
vise readers cf all elasses to look out for tbe publi
cation. There are twenty-three different .papers,
each by a different writer, in tbe coming volume,
and nothing tbat is to appear has eter been pub
lisbed before, though most of tbe writers could have
commanded almost any price for their work bad it
been previously ofiered. The first paper is by Prince
Albert, and is entitled, England and tbe Queen."
aod this is followed by ' Ths Home of Horace
Greeley," by the dweller therein. Professor Agas
sis writes on "Evolution." John Stuart Mill on
Immortality," and Lord Lytton on " Metempsy- i
choaia." Some anonymous author relates "An In-
terview with Edwin Forrest" Mr. Charles Dickens
gives 44 T vo Christmas Carols," Hans Christian An
dersen 44 The Story of a Great King," George Sand
(called in tbe index George Sands) describes a
44 Chateau in the Midst of Roses." De Qoinoey
writes of "An Onium-Eater's Dream cf Heaven."
George Smith, the Assyriologist, offer. " Personal
Experiences." Abraham Lincoln also contributes,
as do Charles Kingsley, Fennimore Cooper, and Dr.
Livingstone; and when it is further said that Hero
dotus has written a paper on 44 Pre-Historio Races of
aisn," and tbat no less an authority tban litiaa
baa been secured for the "Art Notes," it will be
seen that this is not an ordinary book. One thing
in particular will strike readers of tbe index, ana
that is, that all the writers mentioned are dead.
But this is tbe point of the affair. Tbe editors.
Margaret Fuller and Judge Edmonds, are also dead
for tbe matter of tbat, but this does not destroy
their desire to be useful to humanity. Tbe book, as
already mentioned, is nearly ready, and it is under
stood that tbe foreign contributors have kindly con
sented to write in Eoghsh. 44 Tbe purpose is," we
are told in a sbort preface, " to teach the great truths
of Spii it-life as expressed in the desire cf its Spirit-
editor. It is the work of Spirits wbo on the esrth-
plaoe attained to great eminence; and these commu
nications from tbem in Spirit-life are well worthy of
tbeir earthly reputation."
Law for Married Women. A law which has
just been passed by the Legislature of Indiana,
in the United states, will meet with the approv
al of all strong-minded women. The Act provides
tbat a married woman may bargain, sell, assign.
and transfer her separate personal property in the
6ame way as though she was single. She may
carry on any trade or business, and perform any
labor or service on ber sole and separate account.
The earnings and profits accruing from her trade,
business, or labor, other than labor for her bus
band or family, are to be ber sole and separate
property. A married woman may enter into any
contraet in reference to ber separate personal es
tate, trade, business, labour, or service, and the
management and improvement of ber separate
real property, 44 the same as though she were
sole,' and ber separate estate, real or personal,
will be liable therefor on execution or other
judicial process. She may bring and maintain
an action in her own name against any person
or body corporate for damages for any injury to
her person or character, 44 the same as if she
were sole; ' and the money recovered is to be
ber separate property, her husband in such cases
not being liable for costs. With a tender consid
eration for a woman's little weaknesses, a pro
vision of the law exempts from execution for
debts all such jewelery, ornaments, books, works
of art and virtu, and other effects for personal or
Household use as may bave been given her as
presents, gifts or keepsakes. Married women
are expressly prohibited from mortgaging or in
any way encumbering their separate property as
security for the debts or liability of a husband or
any other person.

Tsk Sort of Girl to Get. The true girl has
to be sought for. She does not parade herself as
show goods. She is not fashionable. Generally
she is not rich. But oh ! what a heart she bas
when you find her so large and pure and
womanly! When you see it you wonder if those
showy things outside were women. If you gain
ber love your two thousand are millions. She'll
not ask you for a carriage or a first-class bouse.
She'll wear simple dresses, and turn tbem when
necessary, with no vulgar magnificat to frown her
economy. She'll keep everything neat and nice
in your sky parlor, and give you such a welcome
when you come home that you'll think your par
lor higher than ever. She'll entertain true
friends on a dollar, and astonish you with the
new thought how little happiness depends on
money. She'll make you love (if you don't you
are a brute), and teach you how to pity, while
you seorq, a poor, fashionable society that thinks
itself rich, and vainly tries to think itself happy.
Now, do not, I pray you, say any more, 44 I can't
afford to marry." Go, find the true woman, and
you can. Throw away that cigar, burn up that
switch cane, be sensible yourself, and seek your
wife in a sensible way. Oliver Wendell Holmes.
