THE LATEST NEWS.
On Saturday this paper gave the
largest summary of foreign news
which was over piepared and printed
in Honolulu on the bame day as the
mail arrived. A continuation of the
budget compiled for that issue but
crowded out appears to-day. When
ever the Mniiposa hove in sight
early on Saturday morning, the bad
fact of General Grant's death was
evident to the few waiters on the
wharf. The ship's flags drooped
at half-mast in the still air. Although
the news would not have been sur
prising at any mail arrival for the
past four or five months, it can
scarcely be said to have been ex
pected, n pretty general hopes were
entertained that the illustrious pa
tient's life would have been pro
longed in the pure mountain air
through the summer. It is some
what consoling to know, in the midst
of world-wide regret over the event,
that General Grant's last desire had
been fulfilled. Some time before
his death, he was given the giati
fying assurance that his book of
reminiscences of the civil war had
been forwarded by his own hand to
a point from which it could be satis
factorily completed by others and
yet remain essentially his own woik.
The world has also a common cause
of mourning with England, in the
death of one of the most reinatkable
figures of the ago, Sir Moses Monle
fiore, the wealthy and philanthropic
Hebrew citizen of London, who died
July 28th, full of years and honor.
War long-expected between Eng
land and Russia is still staved off,
but so unsettled is the situation that
an outbreak is not unlikely to occur
at any moment.
The new British Cabinet is finding
that it was infinitely easier to gain
power than to use it well. Already
there is war in the camp, the youth
ful Secretary for India, Lord Uan
dolph Churchill, having been vir
tually read out of the party by the
chief Tory Organ. The Home Rule
paity is, moreover, proving a broken
reed as a staff for the present 1 tilers
to rest upon. It has once already
gono back upon the compact and
left the Government in a miuoiity.
As usual, too, the Irish party itself
has split just when its prospects
were the biightesl for the accom
plishment of its aims. Michael
Davitt has conic out, fair and
square, as a secession ist, and is so
much in earnest as to refuse parlia
mentary honors involving his swear
ing allegiance to the Queen.
It would seem that the expostucs
of the Pall Mull Gazelle have
opened the vent of a moral volcano
in the United Kingdom, in whose
eruption may happily be consumed,
, , root and branch, a vast deal of cor-
lujniuu uuw jJuituiuuy me nie
sources of the nation.
' , The Malidi is dead. This would
have been truly welcome news be
fore the impostor had wreaked his
cowardly vengeance upon Gordon.
Now it seems to have hardly excited
a word of comment at least it is
quite overshadowed by other current
events. England has received the
general European consent to a new
Egyptian Joan, which shows the folly
of most of the talk about her isola
tion in Europe in respect to the
Tho Pacific Mail intelligence given
by us on Saturday was of a highly
interesting nature, nuil every ate-
tfif 'Ua, j
cccding mail, until Hie problem of
steam communication in the Pacific
is solved, will be eagerly awaited
for developments. To-day a variety
of European gossip is printed, some
of it of peculiar interest.
THU AI'MIIAV HISiTIT..
Lord Randolph Churchill, Secre
tary for India, stated in the House
of Commons that the Government
had no intention of negotiating with
Abdurrahman Khan, Ainccr of Af
ghanistan, for the defence of Canda
har. England had given certain
pledges to the Anieei, and if the
emergency requiring it arises and
the Ameer asks for assistance, the
course of England will be clear.

The Conservative journals of Co
penhagen, Denmark, refer to a pub

ing scientific sociotj', a most eminent
author of Denmark, several wealthy
merchants and some members of the
magistracy. They arc accused of
betraying young girls. Ten culprits
have been arrested, two of whom
have committed suicide. The ex
posures resulted from nn attempt to
extort money, which was resisted.
The great bricklayers' strike in
Berlin is ending in the discomfiture
of the strikers. They complain
bitterly of the interference of the
authorities in favor of employers.
It is even declared that the Post
Office intercepted letters containing
money to aid the strike. During
hostilities six thousand bricklayers
left Berlin, nearly all of whom went
to work in the harvest fields in differ
ent paits of Germany.
Sixty criminals who had been aen
tenced lo exile in Siberia, while en
route, rose agaist their guards, and,
although unarmed, began a desper
ate fight for libeity. The battle
lasted a long time and the soldiers
weie absolutely unable to conquer
their manacled assailants. Twenty
of them were shot dead, and of the
other forty, thirty succeeded in
making good their escape.

The German Government has
ordered an investigation into the
circumstances of the Socialistic riot
at Eiankfort-on-thc-Main, with a
view, it is reported, of declaring the
city in a state of siege. Such a
declaration would place the town so
absolutely under iron rule that the
Government believes it would en
tirely suppress Socialism there. It
is reported tiie Go eminent has de
cided to make an exhaustive inquiry
into the subject of Sunday labor.

Sir Moses Monleflore, the Jewish
philanthropist, whoso hundredth
birthday was lately celebrated, is
dead. His funeral' in London, July
.'51 st, was largely attended. The
cotlln was so placed that tin head
rested upon a btone biought from
Jerusalem. In the colllu had been

There are signs of trouble in the
new Ministry. Lord Randolph
Churchill and the Earl of Iddc
'deigh both remained away from a
banquet to the Ministers, July 29th.
A great Tory meeting at Liverpool,
at which Lord Churchill was to have
been the piincipal speaker, on the

The Slatul'ird, the accepted Tory
organ, has given Lord Churchill a

knowledge to fathom his own ignor

The new Government was defeat
ed in the House of Commons, by
180 to 100, on a minor point of tho

reverse. The incident caused much
commotion, but would have no

Lord Lonsdale and Sir George
Chetwynd have had a ten minutes'
fight, first on horseback with whips
and then dismounted with lists, over
Mrs. Lily Langtry, the actress. Sir
George began by striking Lord
Lonsdale over the bead with a horse
whip, exclaiming, "Take that, you
devil. Don t meddle with my Lily."
Princess Beatrice was married to
Prince Louis of Battcnburg, July
2.1ul. Queen Victoria gave the
bride away, it is said because the
Prince of Wales, who should have
done so, would have nothing lo do
with the marriage.
Sir Charles Dilke has been impli

in Parliament last Monday.

bassador at London, and his wife,
have both lefused, the St. James
Gazette says, to appear in mourning
at the court ball, as prescribed by
the Queen, because of the death of
Prince Frederick Chailes of Ger
main'. M. "Waddington's refusal
was officially declared in a courteous
note sent to her Majesty. In this

ing unable to comply with the royal
command, but said he could not dis
obey the orders of his Government
to not wear mourning at the death
of any enemy of France.
