PACIFIC LAND CRABBING.
A short time ago an article from
the JPall Mall Gazette was reprinted
in this paper, which strikingly des
cribed tho land kiuigcr that distresses
the crcat Powers. It showed that
the white man was reaching out
covetous hands for the dark man's
territory till over the woild, and thai
the white nations were lfkcly to dis
play more eagerness than stalcliness
in their rival graspings after the
odds and ends of creation. The
"Australia's" news shows the
scramble for territory to be even
now rather lively among the islands
of tiio Southern Pacific. Great
Britain's hesitation to comply with
the Colonial demand for the annexa
tion of New Guinea is likely to
cause her the loss of much territory
that must ultimately have dropped
naturally into tho lap of her Empire,
were it not for tUc appetite for
colonial possession suddenly devel
oped by the other Powers. It was
fear of French acquisition in that
quarter that moved the Colonies tit
first in the New Guiuca annexation
project, but it is action by German'
which has now disturbed Auslrala
sion equanimity. Germany lias
formally established a protectorate
over tho northern portion of New
Guinea and the islands of New
Britain, New Ireland, New Hanover
and the Admhalty group. Samoa
and Tonga arc also said to be in
Germany's acquisitive eye. In the
meantime Major-General Scralchley,
British High Commissioner for New
Guinea, has anived in Melbourne,
with instructions to invite the Colo
nics to increase their contributions
toward the cost of the New Guinea
Protectorate, while the Imperial
Government undertakes not to ex
pend more annually than the amount
contributed under tho regulations
for the government of British terri
tory in New Guinea. Trade will be
permitted in all articles of com
merce, except firearms and explo
sives. Land sales will take place,
under direct ollicial supervision, and
measures will he adopted to impede
native labor tralllc. A telegram fiom
Lord Derby to. the Victoria Govern
ment says that the annexation by Ger
many is not the result of any concert
between the German and English
Governments, and that the Imperial
Government is now in communication
with Germany on the matter. Lord
Derby adds that tho British Protec
torate now includes a considerable
section of the northeastern part of
New Guinea, besides the Louisiade
Archipelago, Wooillark, IVEncasl
reux, and other important islands.
Coming upon tho heels of Germany's
checkmating of England in African
colonization, this Pacific business
must produco no little embarrass
ment to the British Ministry. ,Mr.
Gladstone, moreover, is buffering
from insomnia (inability to steep) to
such a degree that he has been or
dered complete rest by his doctors.
It was leported in London, on the
4th of January, that the Czar had
been crowned Emperor of Central
Asia. This would set the British
Jingoes off in a tremendous chorus
of, ""Wo told you so!"
, Prince Bismarck is reported as
saying that " he viewed with equani
mity the party struggles inEnglandi
Ho could have relied upon Lord
Ikaconsfield to keep England in
accord with tho rest of Europe, but
whatever Gladstone's policy might
""' . ... - ,..
it wns n matter of little concern
to Germany." Ratlicr sarcastic.
Yet it is during the rule of peace
loving administrations tbat England
gathers strength to kocp other na
tions in their places when statesmen
ambitious of military prestige as
sume the reins.
It looks as if tho French Govern
ment were getting tired of its Orien
tal enterprise. Genernl Campcnon,
Minibter of War, has resigned in
consequence of the refusal of the
Cabinet to send further reinforce
ments to Tonqliin.
The Powers, out of no kindness to
Egypt, are proposing lr guarantee
her n loan, provided that England
evacuates before a fixed date. The
trouble with Egypt is that she lias
had loo much money loaned her be
fore and squandered by rascals.
A BULL OH THE RAMPAGE.
One of the young bulls for Mr.
Henry Macfailanc, which came by
the Australia, made things as lively
as an insurrection in the Pacific Mail
shed shortly after the ariival of the
steamer yesterday. There was at
the time a large crowd in the shed,
and as usual every second man and
boy wanted to pose as an appraiser
of live stock. Consequently there
was a profoundly wise-looking group
about each animal. Shouts and
laughter from the easily tickled
crowd, in the vicinity of this particu
lar bull, caused a general movement
in that direction. The brute was
chaiging about him to the length of
his tether, which was held by a few
men. Quicker than it takes to tell
he had pulled the rope out of their
hands and bolted straight through
the crowd. Such a scattering of
humanity as then ensued could
hardly be parallelled. The .first law
of nature started that crowd as one
man, and then separated it like
Honolulu dust in the wind. There
was no man looked after his brother
man's safety, but the white man, the
black man, the brown man, and the
yellow man, each became a blue
man, and lieh and poor alike found
that all they possessed in life were
legs. For the moment each abdi
cated his share of dominion over the
creatures, and the creature Taurus
was unanimously owned as sovereign
over the whole territory beneath that
roof. Some of the people clambered
up to the rafter plates and clung to
them like spiders, some got upon
and some behind piles of goods, and
some on board the steamship. The
bull, with a twenty foot rope to his
head, dashed straight on to the
north end of the wharf. He had
picked up an old man at the begin
ning of his wild charge, but dropped
him without serious injury before
going far. It was a startling sight
to sec the gray-haired man lying face
up on the brute's shoulders, with
his feet clawing the air. It looked
as U mo Dull was going to jump
overboard, but the steamer Pclc
being -in the way he turned round
and went bounding and bellowing
back. Several persons caught the
rope, howcer, and winding it round
a poi.t brought the animal's wild
career to a close. If it had been an
older beast, there is no saying what
mischief lie might have done, but
apparently it was fear rtithertthan
viciousness that moved him, as
otherwise tho horses tied in the shed
would likely have been attacked
The horses were scared by tho
tumuli, and if they had not been
well fastened would undoubtedly
have biokcn loose and created a
terrific stampede. There was a
number of young children in the
shed at the time, a fact that in
creases the good fortune of there
being no serious results of the inci
dent to record.
The Koloa police have certainly
scored one this week. On Sunday
night Ah Poi's stoic was entered
and about $7.)0 worth of woods
taken. Although there was, at first,
very little evidence on which to base
a Mispioion, before noon on Monday
three Chinamen wcio, found in pos
session of most of tho stolen pro
perty. One confessed everything,
on picliminary examination, and ex
onerated tho other two, who pleaded
not guilty. But that trick is getting
old. All were committed for trial.
The amount of goods stolen could
hardly have been taken by one man.

utes past 8 o'clock an alarm of fire
was rung from Engine Co. No. A.
It proved to be in Smith's lane in
tin' upper room or a house, where a
kerosene lamp had exploded. The
tire which burnt the room slightly
was put out with a few buckctl'uls of
water. At 11:25 another alarm was
rung, calling the department to a
spot the other side of tho prison

fire having broke out afresh. Mr.
Dodd values his two stacks at SGOO.
One stack was saved. The origin of
the fire is no doubt incendiary.
