AMERICA'S TREATY SCHEMES.
A dead set is to lie made by the
Southern sugar and tobacco intcrcM
upon the proposed Mexican treaty.
The gieat scarecrow to be used is
an alleged syndicate of capitalists,
some, of whom were prominent man
agers in the recent campaign, which
is said to have purchased large
tracts of land in Mexico for the
cultivation of sugar and tobacco,
and is already importing large num
bers of coolies lo work the planta
tions. The New York Commercial
Jlnllelin has been unable to trace
Unit syndicate to a. reliable source,
bill, it lias discovered the outlines of
a colossal European syndicate for
the cultivation of wheat and corn.
It is "composed of a number of
wealthy distillers in France, Hol
land and Belgium, who consume in
their business operations annually
some three million tons of this grain,
and who are desirous of procuring
in future a sure supply of corn
every year al a lixed price, and at
the same time be freed from the.
necessity of depending upon tho
mercy of American speculators."
This syndicate has commissioned an
agent to communicate with the
Mexican Government upon proposi
tions to complete certain great Mexi
can Railway lines, with branches, to
open up districts favorable to the
growth of corn ; also, lo make ar
rangements with all landed proprie
tors who havn laud in cultivation
and possess other uncultivated prop
erty and who may be disposed to
raise corn for exportation. Said
manufacturers will buy in advance
at conventional price, and for a
long term of years, the production
of these now uncultivated lands.
Meanwhile the Treasury Department
is active in gathering information
regarding increased trade relations
to the southward. Tho South Ameri
can Commission, after visiting South
America and Mexico, propose to go
- to San Francisco and there hold
conferences with merchants and
South American shippers, similar to
the conferences held in New York,
Philadelphia and elsewhere. .Mr.
French, Assistant Secretary of tho
Treasury, has wiitten to the Collec
tor of Customs at San Francisco.
asking him on behalf of the Com
missioners lo do what he can to
awaken an interest in the subject,
and make arrangements for inter
views with prominent men. The
matter is an interesting one to this
country, as no small amount, of com
petition with our staples will be
created in tho American market liy
the reciprocal relations projected
between the United States and all
Spanish America, Mexico, and South
American countries. Whatever
harm their consummation may do us
may bo offset in some degree, in
. oruasing with time, by the counter
. vailing benefits of our own proposed
treaty with Mexico.

A WOMAN'S SERMON.
Mrs. Leavitt in Fort Street Church
on Sunday evening chose as a text
the following words from the book
of Isaiah, "The government shall
be upon his shoulder," which, she
said, referred to the time which was
surely conriiiL', when the Christ
should govern this world. In past
ages when the church became power
ful it took the government out of the
hands of the people. She should be
sorry to see any denomination in
America, this country or any country
Inking tlic government into its own
hands. God' idea of the govern
ment of the woild was that every
adult human being should be gov
erned by God himself, and that
children should bo governed by their
parents. This was the plan in early
ages, and it failed, not because it
was not good but because the people
would not submit to it. God would
rule in every .department of govern
ment when the whole people came to
look lo him in prayer for wisdom to
guide them in the exercise of their
power. Men in the early chinch
had been beguiled by the same
temptation of the false promise of
the kingdoms of this world whcieby
Satan had tcinptcd Christ in the
wilderness. The words of the text
she watitcd to have Jirought to bear
upon the laws and customs that
prevail in every huid. Laws were
no better than the people that made
them, nor the members of a gov
ernment above the average of tho
people they represented. When they
saw in their own countiy immoral
men, diunken men, in Congress,
they could sec that the moral condi
tion of the. people was not much
above them. It rested with secular
and religious teachers of tho young,
with any man or woman for all
have an influence that, the time
should be brought round when no
man shall look for place and power
unless he is a good man. It seemed
to her that iu a Christian land no
law should be put upon the statute
book which eontinvoncd the ten
commandments. That law was to
stand as the fundamental law of the
univeise until all was fulfilled. Tlic
speaker mentioned a number of
criminal enactments to show that
they all had their root in the deca
logue, and proceeded thence to dis
cuss the relation the laws for making
the liquor tralllc respectable bore to
the ten commandments. During the
year in which she had been on the
1'acific Coast, up to August last,
she had not seen one crime recorded
that was not caused, directly or in
diicctly, by strong diink, and she
had stated that fact publicly in San
Francisco. She adduced similar
evidence from the Atlantic States,
and declared the Government was
not doing its duty which did not
restrain a tralllc which caused at
least nine-tenths of the crime that
was committed. When asked to
join an extensive association formed
to diminish the rapidly-growing
divorce business, she had replied
that she was doing more iu her
present work to prevent divorces
than she could do otherwise, for she
had traced many divorce cases iu
New England, and found a large
majority of them originated iu drink.
Her conclusions upon the relation of
drink to crime wero founded upon
careful research in public docu
ments, and it was time enough for
any to say she was mistaken when
they investigated the subject for
themselves and found she had ex
aggerated aught. A gentleman in
Boston who had doubted her asser
tions, made investigation and found
that of cloven murders committed,
ten were through drink. If tho
whole ten commandments were gone
through, it would ho found that more
ntchtoken because of strong drink
than any other cause. Mr. Glad-
stone had said thai it was the duly i
of legislators to make it as easy as i
possible for men to do light, and as
herd as possible to do wroni!. .Some '
said that it was the adulterations of
liquor that did tlic mischief. To
such bhc always replied that if all
the adulterations were taken away
there would still be left the agent of
crime alcohol. Sir Matthew Hal
said, " If tlic crimes and enormities
brought before inc were divided into
live equal parts, four must bo attri
buted lo strong drink." Would it
not be wise iu a government to
abolish such a prolific source of
crime? In America it was a recog
nized principle that it was proper to
protect the weak against the strong.
The liquor-seller was strong ; his
victim was weak. The drinker was
strong; his wife and children, who
suffered privation of necessaries on
account of his habits, were weak,
here the speaker assei ted the right
of every man's wife and children to
'an equitable share of his means, and
they weie robbed if deprived of their
share. Much worse robbery was it
when committed to gratify his in
juiious habits. She related then the
case of a liquor-seller iu Rhode
Island of forty years standing, who
never drank himself because he
wanted to keep his head clear for
business; but who systematically
took advantage of customers who
placed themselves in his power by
muddling their heads at his bar.
After having thus secured possession
of. tlic entire large estate left an in
experienced young man by his
father, reducing him to beggary, he
kicked him out of his shop where he
came seeking shelter one night,
saying he would not have his place
disgraced with having such n bum
mer about. Mrs. Lenvitt closed
with an appeal to all to do their duty
in having the great evil suppressed,
to liquor dealers to abandon their
business, and to drinkers to forsake
their cups, looking to a higher
power for needed help.
Plover shooting here cannot be
called shooting, it is slaughter, a
regular butchery on those poor birds.
One can get within U.'i to .'50 yards
of a flock of :i0 to 50, and with a
10 bore gun kill the whole lot of
them in a couple of shots. There is
not much merit iu this kind of shoot
ing. It is also teally incredible to
hear that Mr. Caitwright has shot
the first mallaid ever seen on these
Islands. I very often heard what
an excellent shot he was on the wing,
but i cully to think that he is such a
good marksman as to shoot the first
mallard is rather hard to believe.
If Mr. Caitwright will just ride to
Nanakuli he will see for himself that
his celebrated mallard is not the
only one in the Sandwich Islands.
