A decision of Judge Maguirc in

Last month the Ladies' Silk Cul
ture Association of California was
reorganized in conformity with the
terms of its incorporation. From a

the members meant business. It

example of their California sisters,
and show the haltimj lords of crea

A STREET RAILWAY.
From the sharp struggle that took
place in the Legislature, between the
respective friends of two syndicates,
to secure a street railway charter, it
was to be inferred thnt whichever
side got it would not kqep Honolulu
wailing long for the boon. Yet half
a year has elapsed since the passage
of the act lo authorize certain capi
talists to construct a street railway
in Honolulu, and not a blow has
been struck, nor a share of stock in
the enterprise exposed in the market.
There does not appear lo be any
well-founded doubt in the commu
nity that the railway would pay,
almost if not altogether, from the
start. If its profits would be at all
commensurate with its benefits to
the public, it would be as valuable
to the stockholders as if they owned
Punchbowl crater full of gold
beating sand. A good deal was said
in the Legislature about local capi
talists being ready to invest in the
enterprise. We should like now to
sec those capitalists stimulating the
holder of the charter with the sight
of enough legal tender to make him
draw the document out of the
pigeon-hole and put it to its intended
use. Perhaps the desired effect
could be hastened by a rousing pub
lic meeting, a device the potency of
which in this community has been
several limes strikingly clcmon
stratcd. The want of such facilities
for getting about as a street railway
system would afford, is, we believe,
one of the chief causes for the in
ertia often complained of, which
militates against the success of
many existing and proposed moral
and social enterprises. It takes no
small attraction of an intellectual,
social or artistic sort, to get people,
tired with their avocations in a clim
ate that more woos to repose than
incites to activity, to come any dis
tance from their homes to places of
assembly or public resort. With
street cars attainable within a few
moments' walk of every domicile,
this embargo upon popular'-sociality
4and intercourse would be to a
great extent removed. Then
the extremely long road to school
which most children have to "creep
unwillingly" or otherwise, and the
expense entailed upon those who
have- them sent there by carriage,
are considerations that cannot fail
r to produce entire unanimity in the
community as to tho necessity of
improved and cheapened means of
local transit. While, perhaps, in
the case of the majority, tho sturdy
English habit of pedestrianism is not
cultivated here lo as great an extent
as it might beneficially be, yet few
will venture to gainsay the elate
ment that more physical injury is
produced now upon the ailing, the
weak and tho young of our commu
nity, by being compelled to walk too
much, or remain at home when their
pleasure or convenience should take
them out, than the harm that wight
A parly of bulldoscrs besieged a
negro in his house, in Franklin
county, Mississippi, with the object
of whipping and otherwise maltreat
ing him. One of them broke in the
door and rushed in, when his brains
were blown out by the discharge of
a shotgun. The coroner's jury re
turned a verdict of justifiable homi
cide. There is hope for the South,
when a negro's house is thus held to
be his inviolable castle.

not yet come, and may never come,

The contract has been awarded
for building the Northern Kailroad
of Guatemala, which is' to run from
Port Harris on the Atlantic to Gua
temala City, 230 miles. The
amount lo be paid is $11,000,00.0 in
the bonds of the Republic of Guate
mala, and 300,000 acres of land,
rich in mahogany and other fine
woods. The road will run through
lands abounding in iron, tin, copper
and coal, and containing some gold
and silver. When built it will make
direct communication between the
Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, as there
is a road between Guatemala City
and San Jose, and it will shorten the
journey between New York and
Guatemala five days. The con
tractors are Americans. All the
trade of Guatemala is now done

All the wells and springs became
dry a few weeks ago. Drills have
been employed and water was found
twenty feet below the well bottoms,
but there came up with it oil so pun
gent and offensive that the water
cannot be used. It acts as a power
ful purgative. The oil is not pctro-
loilm, but resembles castor oil in
appearance. No one hao yet been
able to tell what it is. Salt water
has also been found, the brine being

The Prohibition Convention in
New York, Jan. 8th, formally de
clared that the National Prohibition
Parly is an independent political or
ganization of the citizens of tho
several Slates, free of all sectional
prejudices, and its members acknow
ledge no dictation in the use and
disposal of their ballots. It will
make no compromise of its prohibi
tion principles by coalition with nny
other political party. Prohibition of
the liquor tralllc is a national issue,
to be consummated by an amend
ment to the Federal Constitution,
and tho Prohibition Party is a neces
sity to secure such amendment, and
to maintain the administration in
power favorable to its enforcement.
A despatch from Pittsficld, Mass.,
says : The widow of Mark Hopkins
intends to build in Harrington the
most expensive residence in the
United Slates. The cost of the
house and grounds will be 85,000,
000. The house will be built of blue
stone from a quarry she owns, and
the work will begin as soon as spring
opens. Work in the quarry will be
carried on day and night. The
electric light will be used for night
work. A thousand men will be em
ployed for three years.
James 11. Goodwin, of California,
informed a New York interviewer
that he has recently received letters
from Hongkong confirming the sto
ries of the barbarous war methods
practisedby the French on the Chi
nese. Merchants at Hongkong or
Peking will not risk sending goods
to the wharves on account of the un
certainty which prevails among all
classes of natives. The Chinese
may rise at any moment, despite the
efforts of the Government, and mur
der every European they can find.
The same gentleman said that the
subject most interesting to Califor
nians at present is the new canal
cheme sentiment west of the Rocky
Mountains. For some time the
Government has paid more attention
to the welfare of the Eastern than of
the Western States. The Western
Stales arc, he thinks, prepared to
advocate the Nicaraguan Canal. The

A movement has been mooted in
Cincinnati by wealthy Irishmen
Hon. J. P. Carberry and Major John
Byrne to organize an American
Irish Parliamentary Club, by which
twenty thousand persons in the
United States will agree to pay 85

of Irish members of Parliament, so
long as the constitutional methods
conducted by Parnell arc maintained.
These gentlemen, because of the al
leged control of the National League
by secret, oath-bound organizations,
have withdrawn from that body.
Eugene Kellcy, banker of New York,
will have the custody of the fund.
The prominence and standing of
theso gentlemen has given signific
ance to the movement. Everything
of an illicit character is condemned,
and fidelity to American citizenship
and moral law is advocated. It is
said that many prominent Americans
and leading men of Irish blood in
America are encouraging the move
ment, believing that a few years of
Parliamentary struggle will give
self-government to Ireland.
The framework of the now Congo
