REFORM IN IRELAND.
Irish affairs are to bo again dealt
with by Parliament. The Home
Rule cry will be partially realized in
the form of an improved system of
municipal government. This is a
measure of great value, ami second
only to the Land Act. A Council
composed of elected representatives
of tho voters is to have the control
and management of county affairs.
The bill further provides for a Cen
tral Council, elected by the County
Councils, to be located in Dublin.
This will eoufer upon the Irish voter
about all that he can reasonably
demand in the direction of Home
Rule. It, al least, places him on an
equal footing with the voters of
England and Scotland. What ad
vantage an Irish Parliament would
be to Ireland, or what benefit even
a separate national existence would
be to her has never yet been demon
strated, and probably never will.
The British Parliament will resist to
the last, every attempt to disjoint
itself. The Irish Parliament, once
absorbed, cannot be rc-organized.
This fact is known to no one better
than to the leaders who make Home
Rule a rallying-cry to hold their
positions at the head of the political
table, while the masses who sit below
the salt really have no definite idea
of what Home Rule means. The
County Council bill will give the
Irish electorate a fair chance to
show whether they arc capable of
any degree of self-government or
not. That, in many districts, they
are not, is an opinion often hazarded,
and not altogether without reason,
in view of the disturbances of late
years. The workings of the new
act will, it is to be hoped, serve to
dispel that view of the state of
affairs. It will, doubtless, have the
effect of localizing agitation for re
form, and create a more healthy
public opinion, directed to practica
ble results. When a community
comes to look to matters near home,
it will generally find enough odds
and ends to gather up and put in
order. Attention to such matters
on the part of the people will do
more good than ever they can hope
to effect by making the British Par
liament the objective point of what
ever grievances or schemes of im
provement they may have occasion
THROWINC GOLD WATER.
It is hard to conceive what object
the Advertiser can have in throwing
cold water upon the little enthusi
asm worked up in regard to silk
culture. Referring to the interest
shown in the silk worms and cocoons
exhibited in Mr. Wiseman's window,
our contemporary says, "If 'many
people' would take half as much
interest in working on their own
account as they do in watching
something else, there would be
an end of 'dull times.' " It is
very easy to scribble such a heroic
sentiment, when a man has a few
slips of white paper before him, a
No. 2 Faber in his hand, an imp
shrieking for "copy" in his ear,
and a bank to pay the damages at
his back. Yet the watching crowd
would be better served by telling
them what to do and who should
pay them. There would not be
many of the artizun class, at all
events, remain long in tho country,
even to look in the windows, if all
the internal llttingtf of buildings
were imported from foreign work-
shops, ns werclli030 of tho nor bank
block, Instead of giving resident
mechanics the job of making thein
on the ground. The Advertiser
says, "If anybody thinks he can sit
around and let silkworms Hpin hint
a living in tills kingdom, hu will get
badly fooled. A dozen laying hens
will yield a larger and more certain
income, and with far less trouble,
than a big colony of silk worms."
Who has ever claimed that the Bilk
industry was capable of such a mar
vel? It has been ehiclly recom
mended, in these columns, as a use
ful auxiliary industry to other
means of livelihood, at least until
such success may be attained in it
as to make it safe for the main de
pendence of a household. No
reason has ever been shown why
silk culture should bo less profitable
than egg-raising in this country.
Indeed, poultry-keeping is attended
with much risk of loss here, and not
cvoryiiouy can maintain a uozen
hens upon a business footing. Our
contemporary winds up as follows:
"Miss Kossilcr makes, money out
of her publications and worms, be
cause she has had the shrewdness
to advertise and push it as a special
business enterprise; but we have
not heard of anyone else in the
United States who has been so
fot lunate, although a good deal of
silk has been produced. There is
only one Nellie Kossilcr, and she
lives in Pennsylvania, where most
people have to 'scratch for a living. " '
Miss Rossitcr has proved the
practicability of silk culture be
coming a profitable industry in cer
tain parts of the United .States. It
is the opinion of competent authori
ties that this country is peculiarly
adapted to the successful prosecu
tion of the industry. Still, we do
not suppose that any of our people
are foolish enough to suppose that
silk-raising can be made a paying
business without a good deal of care
A FRIEND TO HAWAII.
On the first page of to-day's paper
will bo found the revised card of the
San Francisco Merchant. That
paper has been the champion of Ha
waiian interests upon the Coast ever
since it became the property and the
'Production of Mr. Charles R. Buck-
land, formerly editor of this paper.
By pursuing a conciliatory course
in defending the reciprocity treaty,
lie broke down the spirit of acri
mony that had been' generated
against it in a section of the
daily press. At the same, time,
by the irresistible force of facts
and figures in marshalling which
Mr. Buckland has superior talent
he demolished the whole position of
the treaty's enemies. Furthermore,
by strong advocacy of the develop
ment of the wine trade with this
country, the Mcrclutnt is in a fair
way to make the whole country
press of California friendly toward
the treaty. Mr. Buckland has made
his ofiice a veritable bureau of infor
mation upon Hawaiian matters. Be
sides flics of all the.IIonolulu papers,
the oflicc is well supplied with maps
and works of reference of this King
dom. The propiietor himself is
recognized by business people as one
of the best-informed authorities upon
Hawaiian affairs in San Francisco.
Our business men, we doubt not,
would find the Merchant the best
medium through -which to reach the
mercantile car of California. Under
Mr. Buekland's management it has
taken front rank as an industrial
and commercial organ, and become
generally recognized as such.
On Wednesday innruiiii'. April
15th, there arrived at the Treasury
iJeparimcui, jjuuuou, iviiiuiiu, a
small deal box about sixteen inches
by five, carefully wrapped in brown
paper. It was addressed to the
Right lion. AV. K. Gladstone, Esq.
The hall porter was sent for to open
it. This the porter flatly declined
to do ; he had a huge family, and so
forth. Thereupon Mr. .Secretary
Hamilton held a consultation with
tho chiefs of the Treasury, who de
cided unanimously that the proper
people to investigate tho matter
would bo the police. A light cart
with springs was requisitioned, and
the terrible- little box carefully taken
over to Scotland Yard. Hut it fared
no better there than across the road.
Tho Chief Clerk would have nothing
to do witli it, and called in Assistant
Commissioner Colonel Pearson, who
was seized with a happy idea. The
Criminal Investigation Department
is tho proper place for it. So the
box was carefully taken over to Mr.
Munro, who tackled the terror by
inr.,...i.ij.,,,.. "ITrTT"''1"' ''" """""""'
tho aid of a dozen policemen. For
linlf-an-hour no one could bo found
to untie the string ; at last a con
stable with an eye to the Albert
medal, boldly cht the twine, nnd
nothing happened. Then, the lid
was raised with a chisel, and some
suspicious sawdust found. A little
of this, after half-an-hottr's consul
tation, was gently placed upon the
olllco lire, whon it imrncir after the
manner of sawdust. This embold
ened the police, who had been in
creased in numbers, and the hero of
the occasion thrust one finger deep
into the box amidst dead silence.
He was not blown up; his finger
came out unharmed. At last the
courage of the division readied
fever heat, the sawdust was
poured out, and a small brown par
cel discovered. Did it contain clock
work? Anxious ears listened, but
no sound broke upon the official
stillness ; the parcel was untied, and
eventually a toy tomahawk, with an
inscription attached, was found.
It was an appeal to the Premier to
dig up the axe of war, to burythc
pipe of peace.
