Labor immigration is not being
managed in :i way to keep faith with
the people of this kingdom. Time
after time the nation has been in
formed that a check was to bo given
to the introduction of males out of
all proportion to females. Instead
of that being done, the situation is
being aggravated by every special
arrival of labor immigrants, and by
nearly every regular steamer from
the Coast. On May 19th wc took
occasion to comment unfavorably
upon the small proportion of women
promised for the next shipment of
Japanese. The proportion was to
have been one hundred women to
live hundred men. That was, remem
ber, the promise, from ofllcial quar
ters, accompanied by a quasi apology
for the small number of women
in the lot. When the shipment ar
rived the promise proved by the
performance to have been a hollow
mockery. Thirty-five women to nine
hundred and thirty-eight men, is
simply an outrageous imposition
upon this kingdom. Japanese immi
gration has been favored by some,
at least, of those who believed in
immigration for population. It was
represented that the Japanese were
a teachable and progressive race,
with family institutions a strong
national characteristic. Coming in
families, to a large extent, they
would form a valuable clement in
building up the nation. All such
anticipations are dashed by the
event. Great expense is incurred
to flood the country with cheap
Asiatic labor, when much of it might
he saved if the authorities put in
force the Vagrant Act. There aic
hordes of idle Chinese on our streets
that should cither be made to work
on the plantations for fair wages, or
be compelled to give their services
gratuitously to the Government on
the roads. The whole labor business
would seem to be at loose ends.
jMale coolies are ovcnvhclning the
nation and bringing sure and speedy
ruin to the native race. If there is
any national spirit still in existence,
it should be invoked, at this juncture,
to save the Hawaiian country and

A discussion has arisen among
those learned in Chinese antiquities
as to the ancient knowledge of the
phonograph'. A description of it
has been quoted from a native col
lection known as the "Tokien Mis

is given in a popular collection of
stories called "Things of which
Confucius did not speak:"
"It was a bamboo tube covered
with a disc of glass and opened lry a

thousands of Avoids, it was closed
and carried to a distance not ex

it and' applying the ear, the voice
was still distinctly heard; carried

A Change of Government in
Defeated on tho Spirits' Tax.
In tho House of.Coiuinoiis on the
8th, in the debalo on the spirits tax,
the Right Hon. Sir Michael Hicks
Beach, Conservative, moved that
the ploposcd increase of the duty on
beer and spirits was inequitable in
the absence of a corresponding
addition to the duties on wine. The
decisive vote was taken on the
second reading of the budget, when
the Government wa9 defeated by
2G4 to 252. The thirty-nine Fnrnel
lites voted with the majority. A
large number of Liberal members
were absent, having no suspicion of
their parly being in danger of a
A Cabinet council was held on the
following day, when it was resolved
to nlncc the resignations of the
Ministers in the hands of the Queen
at once. This decision of the Cabinet
caused the wildest excitement in
London, and created a feverish
feeling on the Stock Exchange. Con
sols declined 3-1C and Russian
securities fell one-half lower. The
Queen, bc'nig at Balmoral, in Scot
land, the House adjourned to tho
12th, pending Her Majesty's answer
to the Cabinet's resignations and the
steps subsequent thereto. Notices
were at once issued to the ofllccrs of
the inland revenue department that
the proposed in crease of duties on
beer and spirits had been aban
doned. On the 12th, Mr. Gladstone an
nounced in tho House of Commons
that tho Queen had accepted his
resignation, and that the Mar
quis of Salisbury had been sum
moned to Balmoral to be entrusted
with the duty of forming anew gov
ernment. The latest advices were that tho
Marquis of Salisbury had accepted
the Premiership, and was on his
way from Balmoral to London on
Sunday, the 11th, and was in earn

Despatches from St. Petersburg

slvely. He has shown ns much speed ns
ever and had it not been for an nccl.
dent which befell him n few days be
fore tho rnce, ho being dead lame on the

en the gang a hard tussle for tho money.
Ho is now all right again, and is being
regularly jogged at tho track, and car.
show closuto.a 3:30 clip at any time
that he is called upon. This kind of
treatment has been found by Jong ex.
pcrience to bo tho right plan to adopt
with n stallion, as hy it he is not only a
surer foul.gcttor, but also ho will
transmit a greater amount of speed,
energy nnd vigor to his offspring. This
plan is now tho rule In nil of the large
breeding establishments every wheie.
To parties owning good mores this is
an opportunity that should not bo neg.
Iceted, for Venture, with lIn lino breed.
Ing and great hpeed, I consider tho most
desirable stock horse In tho country.
Mr. Campbell tells mo that of all of tho
horses that ho has imported to this coun.
try, which is probably a dozen or more,
he likes his colts by Venture better than
any of them, which is surely proof
enough of his qualities ns a stook.getter.
