A WARNING EXAMPLE.
The following New Yotk despatch
of Match 9th conveys, we think, a
solemn warning to the people of this
Kingdom. Some of them appear to
be putting their trust in Hawaiian
silver remainiug at its nominal value,
regardless of the proportion its cir
culation bears to that of gold. They
do so chiefly upon the strength of
the factitious bolstering up of the
said coinage by paities interested in
overthrowing the gold slandaid
deliberately adopted by the Legis
lature with the commercial commu
nity at its back. The following arc
the contents of the despatch referred
A Wall-street brokerage ilrm which
yesterday advertised for 100,000
trade dollars, for which the highest
prices would be paid, were overrun
with customei.s to-day. They paid
from 85A to SO cents apioee for the
coin. One hundred and fifty thou
sand of them will be shipped to
China, by way of Liverpool, this
week. A member of the linn said :
" We buy small parcels at So or
under and sell laige quantities to
London parties, delivered here at 85.1,,
they to take the risk. The silver
thus sold is sent to China for circu
lation. It is more desirable to ship
it in this, city owing to the high rail
road rates to Sail Krancibco and the
insecurity attendant to shipment of
bulky treasure across thu plains. The
piincipal sufferer is a house in .Phila
delphia, which has been taking these
dollars at par when they were only
quoted at 00. It is said to hold over
1,000,000. They will lose very
heavily. Many manufacturing firms
in this city and suburbs, who pur
chased large quantities two ytais
ago to pay their employees' salaries,
find the coin a drug on their hands.
A wealthy butcher in Rrooklyn, who
has been holding the coin in the
hopes of favorable Congressional
action, will bo bitten badly. The
bankers will not suffer seriously, as
they hold the money in most in
stances for customers."
What those who have been bitten
in handling the trade dollar, while
designing to make a profit upon it,
hayc experienced, is no moro than
those capitalists here may expect
from taking speculative risks upon
the chances of the silver man tri
umphing over all the rest of the
business community. Finns that
may bo following the example of the
New York manufacturcr,s, in shov
ing silver upon the plantations, while
they get gold or its equivalent for
all their laborers produce, may borne

This we have hopes they will do
liufotu very long. If the mnnll
tradcisniul woiking classes would
look into the nuttier, lliey could not
fail to see that their interest lies in
the consummation and perpetuation
of the gold standard. Willi that
solid basis they would, under all
contingencies and vicissitudes of
fotlune and business, be able at least
to know what a dollar was worth.

A NEWSPAPER VICTORY.
The reporters in the Austrian Le
gislature have triumphed in their
strike against disicspectful treat
ment. At the instigation of Von
Schoencrcr, n turbulent anti-Hebrew
deputy, the reporters were forbid
den by a vote of the House to enter
the lobbies. Now there was a stand
ing rule of the House giving rc
portcis the privileges of the lobbies,
so that the President of the Cham
ber did not know his business when
he permitted such a lcsolution to
pass. The rue-eating deputy above
named ucd very offensive language
toward the reporters in moving for
their exclusion. From that day
papers of all shades of patty and
nationality shut down on the doings
and sayings of members. For four
days the members wasted their
sweetness on the desert air of the
Chamber. Not a sentence of their
most soul-stirring eloquence reached
the public ear beyond the walls.
The members could not stand talk
ing at each other, simply, more than
four days, at the end of which the
President of the Chamber repealed
the absurd and spiteful rule. Then
the papers once more bloomed out
with the rank verbiage of political
oratory. The dignity of the press
was upheld, and journalism the
world over will benefit by the good
fight and the proud victory of the
Viennese newspaper men.
Castor oil manufacture is projected
by two enterprising j'oung men at

small industries rather than to a few
great ones for permanent prosperity.
Jn our last Oceanic mail foreign
news summary an item appeared,
saying the Lord Mayor of Dublin

The German law insuring inllciu
nity to laborers for accidents is the
most sweepiug act in favor of the
common people which has boon at
tempted by imperial power for a
long time. It applies to all wqtk
men whose wages arc less than 8000,
cmnlovcd in factories, miarrics,
mines and building trades, titilii6t'
to common day laborers aim agri
cultural laborers. The law requires
the employers of each .trade in each
district to unite in an association,
which pays to every workman in
case of accident the cost of his res
toration to health, or if he lis, per
manently disabled to give' ihiinj'a
pension amounting to two-thirds of
his wages for the j'car previous. In
case of death (his widow or depend
ents receive a pension amounting to
CO percent of his wa-jes. No cir
cumstance but wilful contribution to
the injury will debar the injured
party from these benefits. The
government gives employers no
option but to iorm the insurance
unions to meet this lcquiremcnt.
If they do not so, an agent of thq
supervisory government bureau
forms them into such an association,
willy-nilly. Kuoh union will ar
range its own schedules of premi
ums to be paid to the common
fund by employers and eleK its
own olllcers. These unions are al
so to be made the organ of system
of arbitration of labor disputes,
workmen choosing delegates to meet
tiiose of the employers' unions.
This act is harmonized with the sick
insurance act of the previous year,
by which the working classes are
compulsorily insured payment of
doctors' bill and medicine and one
half wages, provided the sickness is
not the result of intemperance or
vice. The communes have to bear
the burden of this, but they are
assisted by voluntary visiting asso
ciations, perhaps somewhat like
those by which the stale wards arc
looked after in Massachusetts. The
communes or towns to meet this
burden levy a tax of 2 percent on
all wages, two-thirds to be paid by
the laborer, one-third by the
