EQUITABLE LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY.
From Mr. Alex. J. Cartwright, we
have received No. 21 of the Equitable
Gazette published by the above so
ciety, for which ho is tho Honolulu
agent. It is neatly gotten up and
contains some pretty eugravings be
sides an original piece of music. A
London, England, paper says of this
society: "The one olllco distin
guishing itself above all others in
tho rapidity of its progress and the
immensity of its business is the
Equitable Life Assurance Society of
the United States. This institution,
rounded in 1851), invaded Great
Britain in 18G7. Its victories have
been eminently beneficent, and have
been a boon to thousands in this
couutry. Of the five chief assurance
companies of tho world, this Society
shows tho greatest surplus after pro
viding for present and future liabili
ties, the smallest percentage of death
claims to amount of assurances, and
the greatest increase in strength with
necessarily the greatest increase in
the amount of business done."
This monthly publication for July
is, as usual, very interesting. The
new revision of the Bible is reviewed
in a somewhat lengthy article, and
"Independence Day" is the heading
of another, which is well written.
The educational department under
Mr. W. B. Oleson is carefully pre
pared, the first of n scries of articles
on "Island Text Books" appearing
in the present issue. During the
next three months General-Secretary
S. D. Fuller will edit the Y. M. C. A.
department of the Friend. By re
quest of the Hawaiian Board the
sermon on Home Missions preached
by the Rev. S. E. Bishop, May 31st,
is given in full, as well as the ser
mon on Foreign Missions preached
by Rev. E. C. Oggcl, June 7th. The
whole number is a valuable one and
can bo read with much pleasure and
Quite a number of the fair sex of
this citjr felt that as Consul McKinlcy
had received a walking cane, it would
only be fair to show some acknow
ledgment of the services of tho Vice
Consul Mr. Frank P. Hastings. Ac
cordingly that gentleman was waited
iij) on by a delegation of ladies this
morning, and with a few appropriate
remarks presented with a beautiful
cane. He was much taken by sur
prise and could hardly find words to
express his feelings at tho honor con
ferred upon him. The cane is made
of the purest candy, red and white
striped, and has a finely curved
handle. It was carefully wrapped
up in fine wool and tissue paper,
and is very much prized by tho re
cipient. ALL ABOUT MEXICO.
The social at the vestry of the
Fort street Church last evening was
very well attended and much en
joyed by those present. The sub
ject was Mexico, and a map of that
country had been carefully drawn,
by Master Horace Hall. Mrs. W.
V. Hall gave the map lesson, Mrs.
J. A. Cruzan read selected corres
pondence, Mr. W. W. Hall read a
paper on Missions in Mexico, and
Mr. P. C. Jones, Jr., one on civili
zation in the same country.
This morning about nine o'clock
there was another runaway, caused
by the horse being tied to a post by
the reins. The animal belongs to
W. Achi, and was attached to a
break. It was tied on Merchant
street just opposite Mr. Castle's law
office. Getting frightened at some
thing it broke its bridle and started
off down Kaahumanu street at a live
ly pace, but stopped at the foot of
the street without doing any damage,
and fortunately no team3 were in tho
MORE CARE NECESSARY.
Express drivers and others should
be very careful as to how they hitch
their horses. The ropo or strap
should be put around the animal's
neck and not fastened by the bridle.
A young man fastened his horse in
tho latter manner ' tho other night,
and the consequences came very
near being serious. Being an ex
press driver and not obeying the
rules ho was fined for his careless
ness. A ROYAL BREAKFAST.
His Majesty the King gave a
breakfast this morning in honor of

An evangelist from Georgia, the
Rev. Sam Jones, is preaching in
Nashville to large audiences witli
great success. He has had little
schooling, but makes up for that
lack by his intense earnestness ; ho
cannot help but preach. His dis
course is rich in illustrations, and
abounds in epigrams, of which the
following nro examples. "Some
preachers are so elegant that they
always refer to hell as the 'burnt
district.' This sort of dignity is
the starch of a shroud." "Pull up
your doubts by the roots and you'll
find a seed at the bottom, and that
seed is sin." In such sententious
and striking sayings consists much
of this' southern evangelist's power
over his hearers.
Tho long-promised Crofters Bill
for Scotland has been brought in,
and though it docs not satisfy some
of the cxtremest advocates of the
Crofters, there is no doubt that it is
a large and liberal measure. Nor
does it appear likely to meet witli
much opposition from the landlords.
Illegal as some of their acts have
been the Crofters, who have long
supplied many of our best regiments
with soldiers, command a considera
ble amount of public sj'mpathy.
As was anticipated, tho bill is an
extension of the principles of Irish
land legislation to another part of
the United Kingdom. Of the three
F's the Crofters receive two, viz. :
fixity of tenure, subject to certain
statutable conditions, and fair rents
fixed by official valuers. Free sale
is alien to Scoth custom, and is not
demanded. London Jlome News.
Tho difficulties which wc ma' now
be experiencing in our negotiations
with Russia on the subject of the
Afghanistan frontier and the irritat
ing collision into which we arc being
brought on a variety of points with
Frauce, cannot, perhaps, be properly
understood without reference to the
action and attitude of Germany.
Lord Rosebery, it is announced, will
leave London to-day or to-morrow
on a visit to Count Herbert Bis
marck at Berlin. The real object
of his journey is probably to sec
Count Herbert's illustrious father.
If he can improve the Chancellor's
temper towards England he will
have accomplished a great and bene
ficent result. At the present mo
ment there is every reason to believe
that Prince Bismarck does not like
England at all better than he did
three months ago, and that he is
doing everything to occasion us an
noyance. Thus it may well be that
any hitch which has occurred in the
Anglo-Russian negotiations is more
or less instigated by Germany j and
it may be regarded as certain that
if the Egyptian question is kept
open much longer, such n result will
be exclusively due to Germau in
fluence, seeing that the settlement
of the Egyptian business would at
once establish more agreeable mu
tual relations between England and
her European neighbors. London
