BRITISH COLONIAL TROUBLES.
Liberal administrations inEngland
are proverbial for their able atten
tion to domestic affairs and their
cautiousness, to use a mild term, in
maintaining .the prestige of tho
Empire abroad. It lakes a smaller
pretext to make the British lion roar
when the Conservatives tend the
royal beast than when be is in
charge of Liberal keepers. Mr.
Gladstone's administration has been
in a pickle of foreign trouble from
the start, but has never taken de
cisive measures until forced to them,
and frequently the decision has been
what blood-and-thundcr Britons re
garded as an inglorious backdown.
Lately a German bltiebook has
caused a revival of Jingo sentiment
in England against tho Government,
but this time rather on account of
of its having stood too fetiffly by the
traditions of British supremacy over
desirable new countries. This Ger
man public document shows that
some time ago Prince Bismarck mo
destly requested that German tra
ders should be protected in tho in
terior of Africa, over which England
claimed sovereignly. Instead of
conceding so much, Great Britain
established such disci iminativc laws
as practically to make her colonial
maikets a purely British preserve.
"When the German Chancellor per
ceived the British game, he institu-
. ted a vigorous Gei man colonial po-
licy in Africa, putting into effectual
, practice a claim for share and share
' alike, on behalf of the German Em
pire, of the good tilings territorial
going in the dark continent. The
sequel is thus forcibly described by
the St. James's Gazette, aristocratic
' Conservative organ, of London:
"On tho fourth of February, 1883,
Prince Bismarck asked Lord Gran
ville whether the British Foreign
Ofllce would protect German traders
( in the Anglo-African settlements.
Eighteen months afterward England
s begged German protection for Eng
lishmen in Africa." The article
f, from which the above U, taken con
cludes as follows:
t "So closes for the nrcsent. this
Kilgnominioiis chapter of our colonial
,T' history. The rebuff, although
galling to our pride, prejudicial to
s ,i.ol,r lrestigc " fatal to many of
Lipur interests, is thoroughly deserved.
The German Chancellor treated us
with frankness, and even forbear
ance. Everything which wc have
to dcploro is due to Granville's pro
crastination and indecision, which
is now chronic."
The Pall Mall Gazette, the lcad-
t ing Iiadical journal of England ex
' presbes itself with equal bitterness :-
"England has been diseraccd and
isnubbed before the world. What
makcs it worso, is that tho snubbing
has been richly deserved. Gran-
villo's diplomacy, unless wo lenrn in
time by bitter experience, will bring
troubles compared with which this
rebuke, although sufficiently gross
and humiliating, will appear as the
The native paper supposed to bo
owned by the Premier objects to
the foreign papers all being edited
by Englishmen, as it says they arc.
It might have added thai our
salaries arc all paid by the British
Government, and that there are
rumors afloat of Lord Granville re
calling the editor of this journal for
declining to support the Madras
claim. Also, that a British, gun
boat has been ordered here to take
away the editors of the Saturday
Press, to stand trial in London for
treason in passing themselves off
The writtcr noticed on passing
through one of our principal busi
ness blrcets a sign projecting in
front of a shoe and slipper painted
on it and tho line "Shoes Maker"
underneath. If the proprietor could
bo persuaded to dispense with one
of these S', ho would still have
enough left to fully advertise Jus
manufacture. Saturday Press.
By dispensing with one "t"in
the second word of the above item,
its author would give some clue to
the identity of the person who saw
the astonishing sight described.
Barnum's phantom lady is nothing
to a sign projecting in front of
pictures and words on and under
neath it. No less singular is a
single "S" posing as a plural cha
racter, looking like a Gentile widow
pretending to be a Mormon wife.
Art critics who venture to wrestle
with such high productions as sign
boards should condescend to com
monplace to the degree of making
themselves understood by readers of
MRS. HAMPSON'S SERVICES.
Perhaps tho largest audience of
foreigners ever gathered for religious
services in Hawaii, filled the immense
Knwaiahao church last night. Fully
two-thirds of those present wcic
men. From the very first a solemn
hush seemed to pervade the immenso
crowd. The opening services tended
to deepen this bense of .solemnity.
liev. S. E. Bishop led in an earnest
i"ui, in ivlituir lie asked God's
special blessing upon the business
men present. The scripture lesson
consisted of tins parables of the
Unjust Stewaid and Dives and
Mrs. llampson spoke from Luke
10:0, " Make to yourselves friends
of the mammon of unrighteousness."
Wc give a meagre outline of the
thought of the' discourse. Christ
gives us here a lesson of divine
secularism. Here was a steward, a
business agent who was a defaulter,
no unheard of character in this day.
Caught, he shrewdly made friends of
his master's debtors, so that their
homes should be open to him when
he lost his place. Tho leaching of
ths passage is this : that man is to
live after banks, stocks and planta
tions are no longer needed ; that his
soul shall live while its donor lives ;
poor Jradecd is that man who has
none but earthly habitations for
eternity. "What business are you
doing for your soul's eternity ? What
use are you making of your talents?
Time is one of them ; God thinks so
much of it that he gives us but one
little minute at a time. '" Millions
of money for an inch of time!" said
a dying Queen who had had nearly
eighty years of it, and wnntcd now
a single inch in which to sneak into
Heaven ! If time is misused excry
moruenlmaybeeomc n scorpion-whip.
God lias given some of you brain
power : you are at tho head of great
business enterprises ; aie you push
ing them with your soul's eternity in
view? Some of you hold the pen;
your words go into these homes;
you nnist.enc day face your woik.
What are you doing, all you think
ing ones? Some of you have
money what is it doing for you,
and others? Aie you building eter
nal mansions or an elegant mauso
leum? "What are you doing with
your friends aio you making them
enemies for eternity? God has
given this Bible, one of His most
precious gifts what arc you doing
with it? Arc you making it a
stumbling block, or a light to
brighten tho darkness which is com
ing? It would be better for some
men hno'l they been born in heathen
land?, for in eternity this Bible will
be their enemy. But tho most
priceless of all God's gifts is Jesus.
"What has Jesus done for you, and
what nro yon doing with him? Is
Ho to be your friend or your enemy

FUNERAL OF THE LATE MR. FASSETT.
The late Mi. George 11. Fassclt's
body was committed to mother
earth yesterday afternoon, the ob
sequies being in charge of tho
Knights of Pythias. The ceremo
nies began at the cottage in the Ho
tel grounds, upon the verandah of
which the coffin rested, covered with
lloral symbols of friendship and
hope, and bearing relics of the de
ceased's connection with the fire de
partment and benevolent societies.
At the house Pastor Cruzan conduct
ed religious exercises, including an
extempore prayer breathing Christi
an charity. Then the collln, a
handsome article of polished koa
with silver mountings, was placed
upon the hearse, which was drawn
by four of Mr. Dodd's white horses,
and tho procession moved off in the
following order: Deputy Marshal
Dayton; Police; Royal Hawaiian
Band; Royal Household Tioop3;
Honolulu Biilcs; Fire Companies:
Mystic Lodge, Iv. of P. ; Hearse,
witii guard of honor from different
organizations ; Mourners ; Carriages,
of which there were forty-fivic. Mr.
and Mrs. Charles T. Hoyf (old
friends of the deceased in his native
town of Brighton), Col. G. "W. Mac
farlanc, Mr. Henry Maefatlanc, U.
S. Consul McKinley, Vice Consul
F. Hastings, Col. Saxe and Mr.
Charles Dexter were the chief
mourners. The procession made a
good appearance on Nuuanu Valley,
moving regularly forward to the
Dead March and other solemn music.
At the grave Mr. M. Grossman,
the last sad rites of the Knights of
Pythias ritual, and' his clear and im
pressive rendering of the beautiful
sentiments has occasioned very
favorable coinuicnr, the bietlircir
haying it has never been surpassed
here. The troops fired a volley over
the open grave and the parting one
when the narrow house was coveted
up, and the procession returned to
town with the usual fast music.
Seldom has the community so
biiddenly been bereft of one in the
noontide of his days, who was known
to so many, and only known to be
liked for his breezy good-nature and
off-handed friendliness. Taking him
for all, it will be a long time before
the like of George Fassett will shed
good-humor and fraternity ill such
measure as he did about the town.
Mb. Kidwcll's Nursery, out on
the plains, contains air almost end
less variety of plants, shrubs, young
trees, etc., from the tiniest orna
mental vegetable growths to those
which will ultimately develop into
large fruit-producing trees. Amouer
its many novelties is a peculiar kind
of iig tree, with a large apd beauti
fully variegated leaf, with no re
semblance to an ordinary iig leaf.
Also, at the present time, a largp
bunch of striped bananas, said to be
of superior flavor when ripe. But
probably the most attractive thing
of all is the fprncry. This consists
of a couple of parallel trenches, from
two to four feet deep, connected by
a cross trench at one end, ahd roof
ed w ith glass. The intcrtor is one
mass of delicate leaved ferns, of
various kinds, and so sesthetically
intermixed with each other as to
make a perfect picture. Those
ladies who are fenr-fanciers, and
most ladies are, would be delighted
with the sight,. Although Mr. Kid
well is engaged in raising for the
market, he is always pleased to see
visitors and fhow them around,
whether they wisli to purchase or
