Ox Sunday last many people were
extremely 'disappointed because the
Punahou ondPalama 'busses did not
stick to their regular routes. The
public convenience should be attend
ed to, and if routes arc arranged
they ought to be adhered to.
Complaints arc being made by
hack-drivers that private carriages
take up too much room at tho wharfs.
The expresses arc forced to take up
certain positions, and why not all
carriages alike. Sometimes express
men cannot get near enough to the
wharf to land their passengers. This
ought not to bo so.
Although the fence around Fort
street Church yard was tnkendown,
to allow the carriages of those at
tending the services to be hitched
up awnj'from the street so as to keep
the road free for traffic, yet people
will persist in blocking up the thor
oughfare by leaving their vehicles
out in the street, while there (is
plenty of room on the lot to place
them out of the way.
Tun pigeon shooting match at
Knlihi between Messrs. Turrcll and

By a private letter from Kauai, we
learn that a Hawaiian named Kula
commitcd suicide at Liliuc, in a most
determined manner. He was sitting
in a rocking chair and called to his
younger hi other and saying, "See
liow quick a man can die." He then
took a musket loaded with ball and
fired it against his breast. The ball
came out at the back of his neck.
He then got up and lay down on the
bed, and quickly -;ot up again and as
he got to the door steps fell down
Ykstkhiiay morning, early, a car
penter in the employ of Mr. Geo.
Lucas, named J. Macfarlniie, was
going out to work on a dray which
was loaded with over 1,000 feet of
lumber, and drawn by a double
tenm. Passing along King street,
by "Ward's nilesian well, ho got off
without saying anything to the
driver, to get a drink of wnter.
After he had got, off his box of tools
seemed to be slipping, and lie reach
ed out to save them. In doing so
he got too close to the wheel, ami it
knocked him down and passed over
his right shoulder, breaking' the
shoulder blade. Fortunately lie re
ceived no other injury. v Ho was im
mediately taken to the Queen's Hos
pital. Late foreign news.
By the Eureka, a Cull of tho v17th
wns received,, nnd by coiptcsj of J.
M. Oat & Co. we extract the follow
ing items :

Prince Jeioinc Napoleon has been
arrested for publishing a manifesto
in Le Fitiuro, characterizing every
thing in Franco as going wrong, and
that the Republic has nTs-tho .sanc
tion of the popubir votejrwiv winnj-
bcr of Deputies passed by large
majorities two lcsolutions, the first
upholding tho Government's notion
in 'arresting the Prince, and the
other prohibiting the presence in
Frnnccor Algeria of any member of
former French dynasties.
Sccrotnry Folcr, in a letter to the
House Foicign Affairs Committee,
after giving statements and figures,
both for and against the treaty,
sums up by saying, "I am not pic
pared to say that it would beneficial
ly affect the business interests of
this country to abrogate it."
.After healing this letter the Com
mittee, by a majority vole, author
ized ICnsson, of Iowa, to report to
the House in favor of retaining the
treaty, but in' a modillcd form. A
joint resolution offered by Knsson
respecting the treaty requests the
President to take steps to bring
about n revision of the tieaty to the
end that the clause relative to the
introduction of raw, muscovado
brown and unrefined sugars free of
duty may bo changed to permit the
character and grades of such duty
free stigars to be determined by their
percentage of absolute fineness or
clarification instead of the color test
standard, not however, to impair the
spirit of reciprocity.
Chairman Williams said in the
House that the action of the Com
mittee was taken with n view to
biinging the trade between the two
countries within the scope of tlie ori
ginal intentions respecting it. The
Treaty contemplated the admission
fiec of duty of low grades of Sand
wich island sugars, out mere was
every reason to believe that exten
sive frauds had been perpetrated on
the Government, and that high
grades of sugar, doctored so 'ns to
appear of ,an inferior quality liad
been brought in under the operation
of the treaty. The modification re
commended by the Committee pro
poses to do away with tho color test
and establish the polaiiscopc test.
In case the end aimed at by the
Committee cannot be accomplished
by the proposed modification the
President is authorised to give no
tice to the Hawaiian Government of
the abrogation of the treaty.
A minority report will be brought
in against the abrogation of the
treaty, taking the ground that the
Treasury Department and not the
treaty is responsible for the frauds
Eastern sugar men say the resolu
tion repoi ted by the Committee is
vague and unsatisfactory, and if it
means anything that the treaty shall
stand. They say that the President
would not dure to assume under the
wording of the resolution authority
to take steps to bring about the abro
gation of the treaty.
