Sir John Jlacdonald, tlic Canadian
Wf Premier, on a recent visit to Eng-
js, land, is supposed to have been the
; promotion of this sclicmc. If the
' annexation bo consummated, it will
add greatly to the commercial iin-
t portance of Canada. In 1881 the
population of Canada was -1,350,000,
and that of the British West Indies,
including tho Bahamas and Bcrmu-
m das, about 1,230,000. In the period
from 18G5 to 1879, tlic last of which
statistics arc available, tlic annual
average of exports of those Islands

revenue of tlic Islands, from the
application of tlic Canadian tariff,
would more than make up the cost
of protecting them fiom internal
disorders, now borne by the British
Government. The matter is not
without interest to the Hawaiian
f Kingdom, for if the annexation takes
place, and "the reciprocity treaty,
"negotiated between the Governments
of the United Slates and Canada, be
ratified by tlic legislatures of both
nniiiiti'ip.o. nn imiini'l.-iiih vpault in fl,n

American sugar market will ensue.
h if reciprocity is to be the order of
the day among American countries,
this nation should have all the share
possible in the affairs of the happy
commercial family. Therefore, our
?, Government may well take stens to
&' add to the proposed treaty with
Mexico one with Canada. The
Pacific trade of tho uoith country,
upon the completion of the Canadian
Pacific Railway from ocean to ocean,
will bo vastly increased. Steamers
arc being now provided for a line
from British Columbia to Japan nnd
fJCliina, and tlic probability is that a
Inline between tlic Canadian Pacific
PCoast and tlic sister colonics of
f -Australasia will only bo a matter of
Kjtimo, which the prize of Hawaiian
trade tnrown in would materially
'promote. Reciprocal trade witli
r'Caiiatfa, as wo pointed out before,
would inevitably enlarge the market
t 'for our sugar and other products,
,.and probably cheapen our fuel, bread
and lumber supplies.

Tlic Philadelphia J'rcss has, how
ever, lately contained an account of
a trial given tho motor, during which
it displayed tremendous power.
"Whether its' power can be practically
applied is a question that, it is to

ten years to' answer. One thing

Di:.k Sin: Wo take pleasure in in
forming you of the good work done by
your Hand Grenades nt our Factory in
Alameda, yesterday. A fire caught upon
tho shlnglo roof of a large frame struc
ture, and burned furiously, and for a
lime endangered our entire works. The
lire was burning ovcrabout one hundred
feet of surface when tho alarm was
given, and tho men all being on the first
lloor, seized the Grenades and had to go
up three llights of stairs to the top of
tho building, which Is sixty feet high,
and there was dllllculty In gaining ac
cess to tho lire on account ot the steep
ness of the roof nnd the absence of
cleats, which occasioned considerable
delay. AVhen the men reached the fire
they instantly extinguished it hy the
uso of your Hand Grenades, although
tho shingles were well burn od. We be
lieve your Grenades savul the building
from total destruction. Please send us
an additional supply immediately.
