Tup. news brought by the mail 1h
very re-assui lug, in some points but
in other it docs not look so well.
It appears that flic Finance. Com
mittee have sent in i report farming
its abrogation, but the Comniitloc
on Foreign Kclationw had this unilcr
consideration, and. up to the time
of the steamer leaving, had not
taken action. The friends of the
Treaty believed, too, Hint they would
not take action this session, and
that now the only tiling to lie feared
was, lest in the hurry of the last
days of the Kxoeutivc Session of the
.Senate, between now and the next
meeting of Congress, thai some enc
my should rush through a resolution
empowering the President to abro
gate the Treaty. Otherwise it is
bafc till the no.1 Session of Con
gress. The President is said to be
very much against the abrogation of
Another point which i of import
ance in regard to the Treaty, as well
as to these islands, is the fact that
the Senate passed the new tariff bill
for .sugar on February tilth. This
reduces the duly all round by about
40 cents to SI per cwt., in oilier
words, makes it about -12 per cent.,
ad valorem. It was believed
that the Lower House would pass
this, and up to the 2nd of March,
no indication of any contrary feeling
had been exhibited.
The practical effect of this will be
to lower the price that planters here
obtain for their sugar from one half
to oue per cent per lb. This, on an
out-put oi 60,000 tons, means A loss
to the islands of otcr 81,000,000. On
the other hand it will make the ftp
poncnlB of the treaty less bitter in
their action against it, as it will take
away one of their strongest argu
ments. SHippma Notes.

BE80UED GILBERT I8LANDERS.
There arrived by the Oily of
Tokio Thursday five dark-skinned
natives of the South Sea islands,
who had been picked up in a ennoo
by the American ship Northern
Li'iffit. The ship found them adrift
and in a dying condition On Decem

o.iit. The boat contained ten per
sons, fiu of whom had died from
starvation. There was one woman
among the survivors. They proved
to be natives of tho Gilbert group.
Thoy wore so emaciated and looked
so wretched, especially the woman,
that ul first their recovery was be
lieved to bo impossible. However,
thoy received all possible can, and
all recovered. Their story was that
in attempting to cioss from one
island to another a. storm overlook
them and drove them to sea and out
of sight of land. They had nothing
to cat and managed to get only such
sustenance as a little rainwater was
able to give. The woman was in an
interesting condition and gave birth
to a child while on boaid tho North
ir Light. One of the men speaks
a little Knglish. They are to bo
sent back from here to Australia,
tiicncc to the Fiji islands and from
there lo'the Gilbert islands. . 7''.
