. THE PIRACY HOAX.
An hour's sensation was produced,
upon the arrival of the Alameda, by
an imaginary account, in tho Alia
California of the date the steamer
left, of the capture and sacking of
Honolulu, on the afternoon of Dec.
1st, by a pirate vessel's crew.'
"Hoax" is stamped upon the face
of the article, as it is too circum
stantial and exact in details and
names for news conveyed orally by
the sea captain represented to have
informed the Alia. Yet without the
following cditoiial paragraph in tho
some issue, the canard might have
been tho occasion of cruel anxiety
to many people: "The narrative
on the first page shows what might
bo accomplished in tho Hawaiian
Kingdom by a small body of des
peradoes." Whether the motive was
amusement, profit or political effect,
the hoax can hardly fail to have in
jurious results, of moro or less
degree and duration, upon Ha
waiian securities abroad. It is mis
chievous as well as absurd to say
that tho proceedings described could
bo' accomplished here by "a small
body of desperadoes." Tho work
is generally ascribed to Mr. Dan
O'Connell, late editor of the Adver
tiser, an opinion that is strength
ened by the issue of an extra with
the article, in similar type to tho
'original, from the oflicc of that
paper, within an hour after the
steamer's arrival. It is to be feared
the author has made the sale of this
Government's bonds abroad more
dilllcult than ever by his practical
The Advertiser has good-hum-orally
made amends for " scoop
ing" tho answers to our puzzles.
The Hawaiian last evening asked
where were the dies for the Hawaiian
silver coinage. The Advertiser re
jilicsj in effect, that it would not
""stoop to answer such a question.
Still, without any reflections upon
anybody, it is a question we had
heard before it appeared in piint,
and one the public has a right to
A letter from Mr. Z. Y. Squires,
on the currency, will appear after
the holiday pressure upon our
columns is over, if the author can
wait so long. An editorial on tho
same subject is crowded out by
The following, from tho Washing
ton Sunday Gazette of Dec. 14th,
shows how essential it is that accu
rate information regarding this
country and the Reciprocity Treaty
should be disseminated in Washing
ton and throughout tho Union:
,l Now, as the Hawaiian treaty
has expired, wo enter our protest
against its being renewed. There is
"no reason whatever why wo should
pay Claus Sprcckcls and his com
pany, tho real owners of tho Sand
wich islands, $G,000,000 to help in
jure our native industries and fur
ther depress tho condition of our
home workingmen. The Spanish
American treaty, soon to come up
for consideration in the Senate,
.proposes, at one fell swoop, to ruin
our native industries of manufactur
ing sugar and tobacco. It will pro
bably bo rejected. The Hawaiian
'Reciprocity' Treaty is worse, as
.it docs not give the shadow of an
equivalent for all the benefits con
ferred by this Government. Wo
suggest to nil friends of American
industry in Congress that they reso
lutely set their faces against any
sclicmo like this bare-faced swindle,'
otlmnviso called 'tho Hawaiian
Reciprocity Treaty.' "
LATEST FOREIGN NEWS.
At 5.40 o'clock on tho afternoon
of Dec. 13th London was startled by
a terrific explosion. It was heard
ten miles outside of tho city, and
the gates of Woolwich Arsenal were
shaken by its force. An investiga
tion proved that the explosion was
tho result of an attempt to blow up
London bridge. Fortunately, how
ever, the effort resulted in an absurd
fiasco, and tho historical though
comparatively new stiltcturo stood
uninjured. The principal damage
done was tho destruction of perhaps
500 worth of window glass in ware
houses on bolli banks of the fiver.
A number of lampposts weio twisted
into fantastic shapes and somo
travellers were knocked over. One
pedestrian, who was probably nearest
tho explosion, said ho was slightly
bruised by being violently thrown
against the stone parapet of the
bridge. Had tho crime been care
fully planned and tho perpetrators
intended serious mischief, which id
doubted by tho police olllcials, the
result must have been appalling.
London bridge is known to bo tho
most thronged thoroughfatc in the
world. It is estimated that 50,000
people from the London, Chatham
and Dover Railway station alone
pass to and fro on tho bridge daily.
It being Saturday, 'when business
houses close earlier, tho crowd was
smaller than usual, to which circum
stance is attributed tho escape of
many persons from injury. At
latest advices the affair was still n
mystery, but it was remarked as a
curious coincidence that it happened
on tho seventeenth anniversary of
the Clcrkcnwcll jail explosion.
A cable special from London of
December 13th says': The prospects
of the Nile expedition arc considered
gloomy by the experts of the military
clubs in London. According to
their analysis of the situation it will
take until the middle of January to
tgct the bulk of the force to Ambuka:
then it will require fifty days of hard
work on the river to get the troops
to Khartoum. This calculation
brings tho expedition to Khartoum
toward the end of March. After re
lieving Gordon, supposing him to
have held out until Wolselcy's
arrival, thcro seems to be nothing
left for the army to do than to race
back across the Rahinda desert to
Dcbbch, as the route from Shcndy to
the Red Sea is considered to bo loo
dangerous to be practicable. The
newspapers complain that they are
not allowed lo know the true stale of
affairs, owing to General AVolscley's
rigorous censorship of press despat
ches. A Cairo despatch of 'Dec. 13
says: The Nile expedition is ad
vancing with much rapidity. Wolscley
thinks that with a favorable wind
the English forcos will arrive at
Ambuka sooner .than lias been an
ticipated. It is reported that El
Maluli's tent is constantly surround
ed by a triple lino of guards. He-is
harassed by tho fear of being poi
soned. Ilis favorite wife or daughter
prepares his food.
The French Chamber of Deputies
has passed the navy estimates,
coupled with a recommendatiqn
urging the building of swift cruisers
and torpedo vessels and the spcedj
completion of largo men-of-war.
Franco has purchased seven British
steamers for use in convoying addi
tional troops to China. It is believed
in London that negotiations between
France and China, through tho British
Foreign Secretary, have stopped.
Tho death sentences of Captain
Dudley and Mote Stephens, of the
vessel Mignonette, for having killed
a bojr to save themselves from star
vation when shipwrecked, has been
commuted by the British authorities
to six months' imprisonment without
A Hongkong despatch of Dec. 14
says: It is reported from Naga
saki that the Corcans have rebelled ;
that the Kiug lied to the hills and
that his General was killed. The
outbreak occurred during an enter
tainment given by the King to tho
British Minister and others. s At a
given signal tho King's son and
Ministers were, massacred. The
Queen disappeaicd. A collision oc
curred between tho Chinese troops
and Japaucse. The King placed
himself under the protection of the
Japanese, Tho foreign residents
of Corca aro safe. The gunboat
J'Jsjwir has arrived in the Seoul river.
The motives of tho rebellion arc un
known. The results nro certain to
interest several Powers.
The provisions of tho Nicaragua
treaty recently concluded, under
which , tho Nicaragua ship canal,
from the Atlantic to tho Pacific, is
to be constructed, arc published in
tho American papers.
A committee of fifty gentlemen
living in the District of Columbia
has been appointed by tho Demo
cratic National Committee to prepare
for tho inauguration of Mr. Cleve
land. Tho Earl of Morley, under Sec
retary of War, has said at Plymouth
that the Coercion Act would have to
be renewed in Ireland in 1885. Also,
that England would never allow any
other European Power to occupy n
prominent position in Egypt.
