It is pleasant .to note that some
degree of concord lias been arrived
at between the business community,
represented by the Chamber of Com
merce, and the. Government, upon
the currency matter. It is announced
that silver will be taken at the Cus
tom House and all Government
offices, in payment of all public
dues. This will undoubtedly relieve
the congestion of silver, as besides
the quantity, in small sums, that
will be paid in as duties, fees, etc.,
some planting firms will j'icld up
large amounts in the settlement of
labor accounts with the Government.
To-day the Government will be re
presented at the regular meeting of
the Chamber, by mutual agreement,
and the amicable interchange of
views likely to take place may be
expected to have further useful re
sults. The Chamber is to be com
mended for its patient and, for the
present at least, successful efforts
to tide over the crisis that threatened
to bring heavy loss on the silver to
holders of it.
Before going fo press, we learn
that the resolution for some time be
fore the Chamber that its' members
should onty regard silver at its bul
lion value, 84 cents or so was with
drawn in view of the Government's
action mentioned above. No,reprc
hentativc of the Government, was
present. Probably the" illness of the
Premier and the Court duties of tho
Attorney - General have interfered
with the conference.
A prompt l eply to the Canadian
astronomer on the lurid skies is
given by the Rev. H. E. Bishop,

It is in type, but crowded out to

take pride in his woik. Our postmaster-general,
Mr, .Whitney, is of
that kind. Ho has presented tho

New Year's compliments, in an artis
tically lithographed card, containing
a clear picturo of the Palace and

He has also issued a Jhrge card of

CAPT. TIERNEY FOUND GUILTY.
Tho trial of Capt. Tierney, for
false imprisonment of South Sea
Islanders, was concluded yesterday
afternoon. Mr. Millet, stewatd of
the brig Hazard, on board which the
imprisonment took place, sundry
sailors and a fcllow-Islnndcr of the
unlawfully detained men, had testi
fied that the Hazard ian down a
canoe, and its crew forcibly detained
on board three, of the rescued occu
pants. Capt. Tierney was tho only
witness in his own defence, testify
ing that he had done all he could to
icturn tho men, giving them the
option of landing at Jaluit, the fit st
safe landing place. Mr. Hartwcll
urged the jury to place credence
upon the defendant's lone evidence,
saying it was evident ins story was
true and that he had meant no wrong
to anyone on the Hazard. For the
Crown, the Attorney-General said
there was something wrong apparent
in the captain having none of his
officers there io testify in his behalf.
Tho Crown had been lenient in re
ducing the charge from kidnapping,
which was felony, to false imprison
ment, only a misdemeanor. The
Chief Justice charged the jury that
tho Court had settled the issue raised
of jurisdiction, and all they had to
decide was whether a native canoe
had been upset by one of the Ha
zard's boats and the occupants taken
on board that vessel, tied, and there
unlawfully detained. The jury went
out at live, and in fifteen minutes
returned with nvcrdict of guilty.
At noon to-day, Capt. Tierney
was brought up to receive' sentence.
The Attorncj'-Gcncral asked the
Court to take a lenient view of the
case, and that a" lino be imposed.
The Chief Justice hoped this would
be the last case of its kind before
him. He would fine him S200.
Capt. Tierney remarked that nothing
could persuade him to go on such
TRIAL OF BRIDGES.
UKFORi: CHIEF JUSTICK JUDD.
The Supreme Court opened this
morning at 10.05 o'clock, when a
large audience of spectators had
assembled. Sentence in the case of
Capt. Tierney, for false imprison
ment, was postponed until recess.
The case of Hiram Alfred Bridges,
for manslaughter of Leonard R.
Patten, was, proceeded with. The
prisoner occupied a scat by the side
of his, counsel.
After considerable questioning and
challenging by Mr. Castle, the
prisoner's counsel, the following
'jury was finally selected: Messrs.
W. Lishman, A. Bolster, N. F.
Burgess, J. L. Bushec, L. C. Abies,
J. W. Hinglcy, E. S. Cunha, W. II.
Baird, W. Clark. J. F. Carpenter,
T. J. King, and C. J. McCarthy.
The Chief Justice administered
the oath to thcrn. Mr. Whiting, on
behalf of the Crown, then opened
the case, stating the particulars of
the tragedy of Nov. 12lh. " .
Dr. ivobt. McKibbin,,bworn, stated
ho had practised medicine twenty
eight years. I was going up street
the day the affair occurred, and
went in to Benson, Smith & Co.'s
store, where I saw Patten lying dead.
I was ordercd-.to make a post mortem
examination, which I did the follow
ing morning with, Dr. Emerson. I
found three external wounds, one
of which caused death. A bullet
was found in the body. Witness
described the wounds, as at the in
quest. Dr. N. B. Emerson, sworn, stated.
I' assisted the last witness in a 2ost
mortem examination on the body of
L. If. Patten. His evidence corro
borated that of Dr. McKibbin.
Deputy Marshal Dayton, sworn,
stated, the bullet which he had iu
his hand came from tho body of L.
U. Patten. It has been in mv
possession until now. Tho bullet
was handed round for the inspection
of the Jury.
James F. Noble, Mvorn, stated:
I knew Patten and Bridges. I was
on tho opposite side of the road
when the shooting took place. 1
saw Patten with his left hand on
Biidgcs' shoulder, nnd in his right
hand he had a stick, bridges slipped
away from him aiid drew a pistol
from his hip pocket and fired at
Patten. I ran across and assisted
the Jnttcr and carried him into
Benson, Smith & Co.'s stove, where
ho soon expired.
Cross-examined : My attention
was first attracted by tho two talk
ing, seemingly in auger. I did not
sec Patten strike a blow with tho
stick. They were facing each other
when the shots were fired. Patten
looked dazed. It occurred nbout
ten minutes after five o'clock.
Officer Marcos, sworn, stated,
I nin a police officer. I lccoguize
the pistol produced. Tho first time
I saw it was in a building in the rear
of Mr. Horn's st,oro on Hotel street.
I found it on tho top of a barrel.
Mr. Horn's son showed me where
It was. I identity this hat pro
duced ; It was handed mo by a young
man in the Ten Cent Store, and the
piece of stick produced was given
inc by Mr. Avery.
Deputy Dayton, re-called, pro
duced the clothes worn by Patten at
the time he was shot. (They were
inspected very closely by the jury.)
I found no weapon in the clothes.
The contents of the deceased's
pockets were then shown to the jury.
At this point, a recess of one hour
. After recess, Mr. J. Williams, the
photographer, was put on the stand
and after being sworn stated, lie
knew Patten and Bridges. He
noticed the two wrangling and heard
two shots. Patten had a white stick
in his hand.
His Ex. W. M. Gibson was next
sworn, his evidence being substan
tially that given by him at the in
quest. Mr. F. II. Hayscldon, who was
with Mr. Gibson, at the time the
tragedy took place, stntcd, I saw the
struggle, and Patten directly aftcr
waids stagger and fall, while Bridges
ran up. the street. About fifteen
minutes afterwards I saw Bridges
under arrest at Horn's store.
An unusually severe and pro
longed shock of earthquake was felt
here this morning just before six
