THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT.
The United States has been re
deemed from much tcproacli by the
patriotic endeavors of the Washing
ton Monument Society. For many
years an uncompleted monument to
the Father of His Country, first in
peace, first in war and first in the
hearts of his countrymen, lias dis
credited the tinivcr&nl glorification
of tlih man by the lips and pens of
those to whom he bequeathed a
nation and n name. This occasion
of reproach has been swept away by
the completion of a monumental
obelisk that is the highest structure
on the globe. On the Ctli of Decem
ber the marble capstone, weighing
3300 pounds, and its pyramidal
apex of aluminum, wctc placed in
position with appropiintc ceremonies,
bringing the monument to the height
of 550 feet, overtopping by far
. every other fabric made by human
hands. Part of the programme was a
meeting of the Society, on a platform
500 feet above the ground, which
adopted n lcbolution, offered by
General Dunn, " congratulating the
American people on the completion
of this cndcailng monument of our
nation's gratitude to the "Father of
his Country." Ftoin a tcport of
proceedings the following is culled :
"Among those present to-day at
the completion of the structure was
one of the master mechanics who
laid the corner-stone of this monu
ment more than Unity-six years ago,
and the old watcliman of the monu
ment who lias been continuously
employed in thai capacity during
nearly the whole intervening period.
The flag over tho monument floated
to-day from a flagstaff the top of
which is exactly COO feet from tho
ground, thus displaying the Ameri
can colors at the gicatcst 4iciglit of
any construction ever yet known in
the world. The aluminum apex of the
monument is engraved with inscrip
tions as follows, on ono face:
"Chief-Engineer and Architect,
Thomas Lincoln Casey, Colonel of
the Corps of Engineers; Assistants,
Gcorg'o W. Davis, Fourth United
States Infantry, Bernard It. Green,
Civil Engineer; Master Mechanic,
' P. II. McLaughlin." On another,
"Corner-stone laid on the bed of the
foundation July 4, 1848. Fiist
stone, at a height of 152 feet, laid
August 7, 1880; capstono 'set De
cember C, 1881." On a third,
"Joint Commission at tho sotting of
the capstone Chester A. Arthur,
W. W. Corcoran, Chairman M. E.
Bell, Edward Clark, John Newton.
K'; Act of August 2, 187C." On tho
fourth the words, " Tmus Dco."
Wo congratulate our old fiiend,
Mr. Tow'nsend, upon his election as
presidentof the tcnclicrs' convention,
and the convention upon its excellent
Would it not be as well to confine
the enforcement of tho Sunday law
to cases whero the quiet of tho day
is disturbed? Nothing is gained to
"morality by compelling Chinese
pagans to observe Uio (lay religiously,
while transgressors of olhcr nntion
nlilics go notoriously scatheless.
Even upon the Chinese the law is not
equally enforced, for many of them
keep open shop nil day with im
punity, to tho disadvantage of law
abiding livnls, while a solitary one
caught fishing in an out of the way
corner, wronging no one else, is
grabbed up promptly.

The president delivered an' able
opening address, in which he dis
cussed the i dative results from the
public money expended on schools.
His conclusion wns that much of
the Government support would be
better spent than at present, by
devoting it to tho thorough educa
tion of pupils who show capacity for
learning above the ordinary in the
Resolutions proposed at the last
annual meeting were read by the
sccietary. Regarding the new geo
graphy the Rev. Mr. Mackintosh
reported that he had found the work
contained many terms that the ma
jority of the seltool children would
not understand, and he asked the
assistance of the teachers in the
woik of revising the book during the
The following officers were then

The Rev. Dr. Hyde read a letter
of apology from Mr. Hitchcock, for
his inability to be present. The
wiitcr offered some suggestions rela
tive to the more systematic conduct
of the Association's work during the
year. A discussion of tho letter re
sulted in the following committee
being appointed to prepare resolu
tions for discussion: Mr. Oleson,
Dr. Hyde and Miss Hardy.
Mr. Moore, of 'Wailuku, delivered
an interesting lecture upon "Tho
Teaching of English to Hafciiians,"
illustrating his points upon the
blackboard. lie urged tho import
ance of making tho pupils thoroughly
understand the signification of every
word used in teaching them any
branch. The interest in his propo
sitions was attested by a running
fire of questions and criticisms from
the benches, to which ho promptly,
skilfully and good-naturedly veplicd.
He was followed by practical remarks
from Messrs. Oleson, Mackintosh,
Scott and Crook. It is impossible
that the teachers present should not
have been benefited by the ideas
elicited in tho lectin o nud discussion.
The convention took n icccss from
12 to 2 o'clock.
It was rumored in England tho
first week of tho month that a block
ado run by speculative English
merchants was to bo attempted in
Chinese watcis. Gladstone's Minis
try, undoubtedly, is thoroughly in
formed concerning tho intention of
these London and Liverpool ship
owners, but it is exceedingly doubt
ful if any interference will bo
attempted in the absence of a formal
declaration of war between the two
semi-belligerents. Tho sympathy
of tho English masses, undoubtedly, '
is with China, and this alone in tho
pi cscnt complex political situation
is a potent factor to prevent nny but
strictly legitimate measures being I
taken to prohibit the sailing of un
doubted blockade runnel s.
John Vivian, a miner killed in tho
Wyoming shaft, Nevada City, on
the morning before the accident
remarked to a friend: "I had a
dream last night that makes me feci
very uncomfoi table. I dreamt that
an accident happened in tho mine to
mo and I was killed. Tho whole
thing seemed so real that it left a
ciliong impression on my mind. I
wish I could foigct it this morning,
but I can't."
The Capo Government are using
their utmost endeavors to bring
about a peaceful settlement of the
difficulty in Bcchuanaland, and
with that object offers of farms in

recently made incursions into Mont

announced at Cape Town, on Nov.
21th, that the expedition then on
the way to Bpcliuanaland, under
the command of Colonel Warren,
for the purpose of resisting the en
croachments of the Boers, was to

At a Bonapartist banquet in Paris,
attended by twelve hundred persons,
Maurice Richard, presiding, declared
that France was in tho same state of
anarchy now as before the accession
of Napoleon. Now, as then, the
only remedy would be for the people
to elect a responsible chief. " We
arc, thcrcfoie," he
said, " forming
a national league to elect a worthy
chief." He concluded by proposing
n toast to Prince Napoleon. Pasccl
declared that tho object of tho meet

sentiments and openly demand that
