A REFUGE FROM BOREAS.
Mankind is a peculiar medley of
contradictions. Of all men and
women in the world, probably the
North American man and his
better half arc the most par
adoxical of the species. Tho ex
ceptions to this rule arc the Indian
aborigines and the later transplants
south of about the thirtieth parallel.
North of that line, or thereabout,
lies the legion of winter, and snow
and ice. Winter is a peculiar sea
son. 'It is not easy to describe". In
fact n description of it -would be un
intelligible, except to people who
know ill about it from experience.
And for them, no description is ne
cessary. There is no portion of the
year that the denizens f of northern
climes arc so much delighted to
see at an end. It is a delightful
body to get away from. It is the
constant desire expressed most em
phatically by the head of every
household who is obliged to lisc and
kindle the morning fire from day to
day that cold grim winter would
hasten its exit. And here is where
the paradoxical part of the people
shows itself. It is the very season
in which tuoy are sure to stay at
home. There are few tourists abroad
on vacation. At the opening of
winter, there is a general hurrying
home from the mountains, the sea
shores, and from .Europe. Once
winter is past again, thousands of
people are up and away. Summer,
with its beauties of sunshine and
bloom, is the time when homes arc
deserted. Its many points of admi
ration engage the finest 'effusions of
the poet, and the sentimentalist.
And yet( every one who can affoid
the 'expense goes for a foreign tour
1,1. 'I ., , i D
or to a seaside resortr '
It would seem to be more in ac
cordance with "the eternal fitness
of tilings," if the wealthy pleasure
seekers of' the north and cast sought
surcease of sorrow by cheating tho
wintry .winds of part, of their prey
by getting up and away for ho
" Paradise of tho Pacific." Summer
travel lolling eastward and winter
trnvel rolling westward will bear
comparison only to the advantage
of the latter. Tho Islands of Hawaii,
if their excellencies were bettor
known in the northern and eastern
parts of America', ought to command
an influx of tourists and visitors,
especially during tho winter months.
A trip to these islands can be mado
at less expense than the ttip to
Europe. Wlint is tho expense of a
trip to the Hawaiian Volcanoes com
pared with a trip to Mount Vesuvius
or tho Alps? And what is Vesuvius
in comparison with Kilauea? The
'fact that tourists of tho cold lati
tudes in America arc not found
luxuiiating under the palm trees of
Honolulu in midwinter, instead of
shivering in ice and biiow, or revel
ling in the felicity of tropical bieezes
instead of enduring the deadly chills
of Boreas, must surely be due to
innocent ignoranco of tho rich and
rare possibilities of comfoi table ex
, jstenee so very near to them. What
liner ideal of leprievc from climatic
adversity can be imagined than to
fancy the chilled citizen of Chicago,
Boston or Montreal escaped from
thermometers registering 25 degreea
below zero, and,after a twelve days'
trip, reclining under the palm trees
of Emma Square?
AN IMPORTANT BUDGET. . .
The brief but pretty full budget of
foreign news given ycstciday was
thrco clays Inter, and somewhat more
exciting than the latest mail advices.
At Simla the extensive fortifying
woiks of the Afghans, under British
supeiintcndcncc, wcro actually em
barrassed by the proximity of the
Russians. Russian intiiguo was
also life in that quarter. Russia's
intentions are fiulhcr made manifest
by her projection of a ship cannl to
connect the Caspian Sea with tho
Transcaspian Railway, and by her
conclusion of a treaty with Corcn,
the latter doubtless to checkmate
England's alleged occupancy of
Poit Hamilton. On the other hand,
MchnvcLord Snlisbuiy negotiating
for the unloading of the Soudan bur
den upon the willing back of Italy,
besides the English operations in
Afghanistan and vast war prepar
ations at home. These all are indi
cations that an outbreak between the
two Empires is liable to occur at
any day. In the Soudan matters
have assumed fresh liveliness in the
apparent break-up of the rebel forces
since the death of the Mahdi, and
the supci vention of anarchy even
worse than that which English bol
diers went into the desert to sup
press. There is n terrible time in
Khartoum a fratricidal war claiming
among its earliest victims the suc
cessor of the fully proved "False"
Prophet, whose inglorious death by
smallpox seems to have swept away
nil confidence in his pretensions of
being n divine scourge of the Christ
ian "dogs." Osman Digna, the
late chief's right-hand man of war,
has reversed the usual order of a
falling cause instead of being de
serted, he has taken time by the
forelock and tinned heels upon his
faithful followers. The consequence
is that many sheiks have concluded
it best to give their humble submis
sion to the Biitish commander in
sSuakim. Trouble is brewing bc
jtween the United Slates and Turkey,
lon account of Jews hailing under
the American flag having been ex
ipcllcd from Jerusalem, in spite of
(remonstrances from the United
'States Consul in Constantinople.
To people whom nothing slighter
than warsiand lumors of wars will
serve to keep warm-blooded even in
a tiopical climate, these three days'
intelligence will scarcely be a total
failure. The continued devastation
by choleia of the Spanish and
Frenoh populations is a piece of the
saddest annals of human history.
It constitutes, moreover, a solemn
warning'to peoples of all countries,
bidding them observe the conditions
of immunity from pestilence clean
liness and an average respect for tho
laws of health and life in general.
There has been a revival of the
Thames (New Zealand) goldfield,
as it is anticipated that new proces
ses of gold saving introduced will
enable reefs hitherto not profitable
to be worked to advantage.
The Detroit Free Press says ficsh
banana peel rubbed on a corn will
cure it. In this country a banana
peel under the sole of the foot makes
corns grow on the spinal column.
Perhaps it is the same in the chief
city of the Miehiganders.
A poem in an exchange is entitled,
"Sometime," and in it "my child"
is told a lot of things that will happen
in that indefinite period. It is a
great disappointment to find in the
otherwise meritorious production no
mention made of the completion of
the Honolulu street railway.
A scheme of real socialism is in
existence in New Zealand, under the
name of tho " New Zealand Co
opei alive Land nnd Labor Company
(Limited)." It has for object the
joinder of the thrco factors the
producer, the capitalist, and the
consumer In partnership of pro
perty and profits. Its membership
seems to be numerous and certainly
Karl Blind claims to bo able to
prove that Victor Hugo was of Ger
man otigin, and a Fienchman only
by the accident of circumstances.
France, however, owns tho illustiions
author by virtue of tho proverbial
"nino points of the law." His life
was French, his works likewise, and
Franco gave hira honor abundant
and a tomb. Still, the proof Karl
Blind claims ability to produce would
bo very iriittTting to tho French
At a trade meeting of (he iron
workers of Auckland, New Zealand,
it was shown that within two years
machinery to the value of a million
and a quarter dollars had been im
ported at that port. The secretary
of the meeting nigued that the work
ingincu should combine to have the
impoilation of machinery stopped.
Ho expatiated upon the benefits to
local trade that would accrue from
having all that machinery made at
home. That depends. If the coun
try can moio easily and cheaply
laise pioducts thai would pay for
the machinery abroad, than it can
manufacluic the machinery, then the
benefits of prohibiting importation'
would be very difficult to demon
strate. Probably it was an outcry against
abuse of the pardoning power by
governors which led to the establish
ment of a Court of Pardons in.Ncw
Jcisey. Wo know not, but, what
ever was tho occasion for the now
tiibunal's creation, an American
paper says that the Court granted
one hundred pardons in a week, or
six mpre than the Governor granted
in two years. Thus change is found
to bo not always for the best, and
corporate mercies to be sometimes
as tender as those of the possessor
of a soul. But whether the tender
ness in question is to be attiibuted
to humane sympathies or much worse
weaknesses, deponent, knowing as
little of Jersey justice' as of Jersey
lightning, sayeth not.
Sir Julius Vogel, Premier of New
Zcnland, owing to his original budget
having been rejected by the Legisla
ture, has submitted a new one. He
has to make provision for a defi
ciency of ncaily eight hundred
thousand dollars. This is to be done
by deferring payment of $250,000
due on the floating deficiency, by
cutting down expenses in different
departments, and by an increase of
an eighth of a penny in the property
tax. New Zealand will be more
fortunate than Hawaii if it has a
Legislature with wisdom enough to
cut down expenditure when the coun
try has gone into the mire of finan
cial embarrassment in other words,
having legislators who know enough
to come in when it rains.
A New York doctor ' being asked
if he did not think oat meal made
"very fine board," answered that
such always had been his opinion ;
he considered it just about equiva
lent to saw dust.
A Texas judge has fined a man
for calling him a liar in "com t. Texas
marksmanship is deteriorating.
Several years ago a judge would
never have fined a man for that of
fense. New York Graphic.
