THE MEXICAN MISSION.
The suspense is over. There was
no very great reason why there
should have been any suspense. In
bigger countries the depatttire of a
diplomat, upon a mission of good
will and mutual benefit to tlic capital
of a friendly power, is not iisunlly a
matter of such deep mystery as the
mission of our merry Attorney
General to Mexico was made. It
seems, though, that the' Government
Is more sensitive to tlic criticisms of
the Oppositionists than tlic recent i
, belligerent, editor of our morning I
contemporary would ever ndtiiil.
Foreign missions constitute tt feomc
whul lender pol upon Hie epidermis
of the ISuvcrumciil. Therefore, it
was just ii" well for the f lovernment,
while not a hilling matter for any
body else, tltitt the steps of the
Attorncy-tJcncral to Mexico were
velvet-shod, .so" long as the success
of his mission was problematical.
The public docs not, however, waive
its right to consider whether ti
dollar's worth of postage and sta
tionery would not have sulllecd to
perform the preliminary work effect
ed by the Minister. A steamship
line was projected between Mexico
and China, for which Hawaii would
bo a natural half-way station. Thai
business, if wo arc not mistaken,
wns settled before the- Minister's
departure, although the first men
tion of the mission had it that he
was going to help promote the
scheme. To be in the lino of such
steam communication between tlic
two hemispheres would not, of
course, be anything like as advan
tageous without as with some meas
ure of reciprocal free trade between
us and our progressive eastern
neighbor. Therefore the Atlorney
(Jencral carried with him an auto
graph letter from His Majesty, ac
companied by the proffer to the
I 'resident of Mexico of tlic com mis
sion of a Knight of the Royal Order
of Kalakatta, and announced to that
lepublican ruler that be had been
empowered to make an overture for
a treaty of amity and commerce
between the Kingdom of Hawaii and
the Sovereign Republic of Mexico.
The President gave an exceedingly
favorable reply to the formal
presentation of our Minister's
duty, expressing readiness to
a treaty between
the two countries on equitable
b.-iM's, complimenting our sovereign
upon bis perspicacity and felicitating
our envoy upon his part in forging
the "lirt link in the chain which in
thu near future is to unite in amity
the United States of Mexico and the
Hawaiian Kingdom." This is so far
very satisfactory, and the (Jovern
nieiit is entitled to great, credit for
having been so alert in seizing upon
such an opportunity for extending
our trade iclations. Mr. Neumann
seems to have accomplished his mis
sion with ability, and his colleagues
could have had no idea that he was
returning with such a big feather in
his cap. or they would not have
omitted to give him at least u Min
isterial salute, from the shore battery
as he stepped upon the strand.
Crime seems to bo rampant in tho
I'nited States at present. "Within
the compass of about half a column
in a San Francisco paper tho follow
ing tragedies are reported: Two
miners in New Mexico murder a third
because he refused to join them in
murdering a fourth for bis money.
Two boys, aged 17 and 18, sup
posed fast friends, slaughter each
other at the home of one of them in
Philadelphia. A woman in Calhoun
county, "West Virginia, poisons
herself and two step-children, all
fatally. Negroes murder a father,
son and nephew at Clinton, Louis
iana, and four of them arc overtaken
and hanged by lynchers. A wealthy
resident of Chattooga, Georgia, aged
7.', and a prostitute, aged 00, are
I hanged at Center, Alabama, by an
j armed and masked mob of forty
j men. A desperate woman runs
amuck on the occupants of u passen
ger train in Indiana, and wounds
three men. ono dangerously, with a
knife. At Delphos, Kansas, a boy
of 18 kills his father in a family
quarrel. At St. .Joseph, Missouri,
a gill of lfi is murdered by her
seducer, who then makes an unsuc
cessful attempt to kill himself.
Cupidity, lust, and the everlasting
England is gettmg off a lot of
shop-worn war material upon the
Chinese. Consignments have been
made of large and small guns, and
China lias purchased live million
cartridges wliich were made during
thu Eranco-CJerman war. Experts
say the powder in these' cartridges
will, at this late day, be tillable to
oject a bullet from tho muzzle of a
rilc. Surely England is not so
atrociously mercenary ns to shove
audi useless material for defence i
upon the Chinese, to fiicililiitu tllcir
slaughter by the French. The ,
condition of the cartridges must be
exaggerated, and the Chinese arc
scarcely so idiotic as to buy Hie
at tide without having it tested.
Tin: "People's Cyclopedia " lias
been delivered by the local agent.
Itisawoik that should be in every
household, and wo nre not paid for
saying so. No better companion
for youth undergoing their school
ing could be obtained not even an
unabridged dictionary. Tiioy will
hardly need to be driven to it,
either, for its pages are attractive
throughout. Wo could not begin to
tell of the variety of information
contained in tlic three compact vol
umes, so Illustrated that even the
simplest understanding will cany off
useful impressions from the contents.
As a work of reference for the olllcc
or the study it is a treasure.
BRIGHT ON WHITTIER.
Mr. John Hright, the British
statesman and orator, wrote as fol
lows in a letter to the New ICngland
Friends' Society, of Providence, on
the occasion of their celebration of
the recent birthday anniversary of
the poet John G. AVhitticr:
" The Virginia Slave Mother's La
ment" has often brought tears to my
eyes. I Us short, but it is worth a vol
ume on the great question which was
settled twenty years ago by your gteat
conflict, in 'which so much treasure
and blood was expended to mnkc
freedom the heritage of your con
tinent. Those few lines were enough
to rouse the whole nation to expel
from amongst you the odious crime
and guilt of slavery. In the poem
of ".Snowbound" there arc lines on
the deatli of the poet's sister which
have nothing superior to them in
beauty and pathos in our language.
I have read them often and with
always increasing admiration. I have
suffered from the loss of those near
and dear to me, and I can apply the
lines to my own case and feci as
though they were written for mc.
"Klcrnal Goodness" is another
poem which is worth a crowd of
sermons which arc spoken from the
pulpits of our sects and churches,
but which, however, I do not wish
to undervalue. It is a great gift to
' mankind when a poet is raised
amongst us who devotes his great
to the sublime purpose of
spreading among men the principles
iT (kim. iitl Inntinn ainil fHAnilmvi
This our' friend Whittier has done
in a degree unsurpassed by any
oUtcr poet who has spoken to the
world in our noble tongue. I feel it
a great honor that my bust should
stand in your hall near the portrait
of your great poet.
THE TRAGEDY I
TIIK ITNKUAL, THE VICTIM
AND TIIK HOMICIDE.
The funeral of tlic late Leonard
It. Patten took place ye&terday
afternoon at four o'clock from tho
lodge room of Lodge le Progres
l'Oceanie, on King street. The
room was draped in black, the
coflln being placed at the upper end
of thu room. There -'was a large
attendance of members, and a few
ladies were present. The pro
ceedings opened by Worshipful
Master Frank .7. lliggins calling the
Lodge to order, and slating that the
members had been convened to at
tend tho funeral of their late brother
Patten. Past Master David Dayton
then said, "Ladies, Gentlemen and
Brethren, Our late Brother Patten
was well-known to you all. There
fore, it -is unnecessary for me to
speak of his good qualities. There
arc many that will miss him at his
usual place of business. His liberal
charities towards the destitute was
unbounded, lie was human and
any faults that he had let us be
charitable and spread tlic mantle of
charily over them." The service com
menced, being read by Worshipful
Master lliggins. A hymn was sung
and after a prayer the service was
ended. As tho body was carried
from the lodge room a dirge was
played on the organ. Tho proces
sion formed on King street and
marched to the Nituanu Cemetery in
the following order, Itoyal Hawaiian
Band, Members of the various
Lodges, two and two; Hearse with
the Body, tho following acting as
pall-bearers, Messrs. F. 11. Oat,
Henry Smith, Andrew Brown, T.
Wall, F. Hertz and John Lucas.
Then came a carriage containing
Messrs. Henry Watcrliousc, J. II.
l'aty ami Robert Dickson ; following
in nnolhcr, were American Consul
McKinlcy and Mr. A. .7. Cartwright.
A large number of carriages con
taining friends of the deceased also
followed the remains. Aniving at
the Cemetery the Masons formed
round the grave in a circle and the
usual Masonic services were con
ducted by Worshipful Masters llig
gins and l'ortcr, and Past Master
Dayton. The different stores of
Mr. J. T. W'alerhouse were closed
out of respect to the deceased.
THE LATE L. R. PATTEN.
A short time ago the victim of
Wednesday's tragedy informed Con
sul McKinlcy that lie had made a
will and bad appointed him admin
istrator, but as yet no will has been
found, lie has 110 shares in the
Knwailua Ranch Co., Waialua, and
had given tlic Consul a deed of
trust to hold them for his wife, who
is living in Memphis, Tennessee.
He has a brother living in Milton,
New York. 'W'c arc in possession of
facts to show that the deceased lias
done many kind acts of charity,
and there are a good many who will
miss iiiiu at certain times of tho
The prisoner Bridges, who shot
Patten, may possibly be brought up
for examination in tho Police Court
to-morrow morning; if not, early
next week. It is expected his
counsel. Mr. W. 1$. Castle, will
waive examination, and in that case
the trial will go over to the .January
term of the Supreme Court. The
pistol witli which be did the deed is
one known as the British bulldog,
and was made by P. 'Wcblcy & Son,
London and Birmingham. It has
five chambers, three of which arc
loaded, the other two having been dis
charged at Patten, though the shells
still remain in the chambers. As is
known, one ball was found inside
Patten, while the other, which just
grazed his side, struck the store of
Williams & Co. on Fort street, going
through the clap boards, striking the
inner partition and dropping down,
where 'it was afterwards found. A
boy standing there at the time had
a very narrow escape. The pistol is
! lf-cocking, centre fire, of -12 eali
lire, and is considerably rusted.
Dr. I'ietri Baldaei, editor of Jm
Aurora, a Spanish paper, at Santa
Fe, 2sew Mexico, ran away witli the
young wife of a wealthy resident, to
whom he had been paying attentions
for some time. The Sheriff over
took the. couple and brought them
back on a charge of robbery, the
foundation for wliich was tho fact
that the 'woman had given part of a
large sum of money and jewels,
taken with her, into tlic keeping of
tho naughty editor. It was rumored
that the parents of the lady gave her
a terrible beating on tlic night of her
return, and locked her up in a dark
cellar. Also, that her friends were
indignant at tlic punishment inflicted
upon her and talked of retaliation.
The editor's friends obtained his
release, and he proposed to make it
hot for those who caused his arrest.
The strike of coal miners in Colo
rado begun a short time ago has
become general, the number of
strikers on Oct. L8th l caching 3,000.
In Denver tho supply of coal was
becoming short, and apprehensions
wore felt of serious scarcity.
