Long Post, G. A. R., 7:30.
A paper read at a recent meeting
of the Western (U. S.) Furniture
Manufacturers' Association sug
gested "a novel remedy for over-production
and hard times. It was to
require by law every county, city
and town to set every man, who has
failed to find employment, to work
at paying wages on the streets and
roads, and also to forcibly put all
idlers without visible means of sup
port to work. If immediate taxation
was. impracticable, bonds should be
issued to cover the expense. A
weak spot in such a scheme is that
where the unemployed and vaga
bonds were plentiful, the latter with
sufficient money to spend in liquor
would turn any neighborhood into
pandemonium, and their own work
would not be worth "'paying wages."
No: the most rigorous prohibition
enforced to the last jot and tittle
would be essential to success, in
any degree, of such a socialistic
scheme. However, a law would not
go too far.that would make volun
tary idlers useful on the roads in
prison gangs. That is about what
we have advocated for Honolulu
not the law, indeed, for that exists,
but its strict enforcement. It would
be very hard to enforce it to the
letter, for many of the loafers here
might be able to prove that they had
just come off a plantation and had
no knowledge of another one ready
to receive their labor. Still, wc
cannot see why habitual and incorri
gible vagabonds should not be im
pressed into useful public service of
the kind so much needed on our
'streets and sidewalks. It is true
the police are doing work of this
'sort, but there does notiscem to be
any' special effort made to enforce
the Vagrant Act. Possibly that ob
ject requires more force than the
Appropriation Bill provides for.
Then the question will be for the
next Legislature to decide, whether
the results of enforcing the law
would be worth the additional ex
pense of having it done.
In an article under the title of
Crops and Business, the Providence,
R. I., Bulletin collates the reports
from the grain fields of the world,
showing that there are cheering in
dications of an abundant supply of
the staff of life for the coming year.
Though the wheat crops, in the ag
igregate, are below the average, yet
the deficiency will not likely be any
' greater than is necessary to a
healthy demand ut fair rates for the
., farmer. The yield of corn will bo
very large, and in so far as needed
for, the sustepance of man or beast,
i will be amply suffloicnt. There is
promise, too, of an immense oat
. crop, and in localities that the pro-
' duct of the oat forms nn important,
' part of the staff of life of men or of
'horses, ' whero'll ye get such men
or such horses?" The South ic
joices in a luxuriant cotton crop,
-and is well advanced in diversified
industries," for large returns from
other crops are also reported. There
,ifm be a shortage iu f be potato crop
in the east owing to a rather
'droughty period in jts early stages
j of growth, but the lessening of
the yleld,of potatoes from this cause
k, .as a rule', largely compensated
by a noticeable' superiority in the
quality of the tubers.
4 EDITORIAL NOTES. h
A merchant who never gives of
fchso himself complains that the
sidewalks, already too narrow, arc
allowed to bo blocked by packages
and' articles of merchandise. It is
one of our villagy pucadillous, that
stand between us and recognition as
a modern metropolis.
The Atlanta, Ga., Constitution
pays that while the sympathy of the
south for General Grant "could not
be expected to take the extreme
character it did in the north, yet it
was sincere enough to show that the
war is over, and that discord will
not comi! from this section."
A statement was made in the San
Francisco Call, and has been re
peated here, that Mr. M. S. Grin
baum was the agent who disposed
of the Hawaiian sugar crop to the
American Refiner'. Several of
those best qualified to speak upon
the subject, have authorized us to
say that the statement in question
is entirely without foundation.
Mr. Gladstone has been rusticat
ing on the western coast of Norway,
whither lie went in Sir Thomas
Brasscy's yacht Sunbeam. The e
prcmicr was in excellent health and
spirits, and enjoying an exuberance
of delight in his freedom from the
cares of statecraft. It is not improb
able that he may favor the literary
world with "Three 'tweeks off
Norway. ' '
A Pittsburg despatch says the
outlook in the iron trade has not
been more favorable for many years
than it is at present. This means a
prospect of good times in the States,
for the keynote in the scale of
manufacturing enterprises is struck
on iron. When the iron furnaces
arc kept well heated, they glow in
the faces of workmen in every de
partment of trade.
The advance of prohibition senti
ment in the Southern States is some
thing remarkable. An idea of its
strength may be gathered from the
announcement of the Atlanta Con
stitution that "Prohibition presents
the most important issue now before
the people of Georgia," and the
acknowledgment made, evidently in
trepidation, by that paper, that the
forcing of prohibition into politics
"would threaten the integrity of the
democratic party in the state." The
writer of the article claims to be a
prohibitionist, but one who does not
believe liquor can over be driven out

The Social Science Convention
has been in session at Ann Aibor,
Michigan. John Mullcr claimed it
was possible to live well on 30 or 40
cents a day. The digestive organs,
he thought, should have a period of
vest. Tho establishment of more
workshops was his method for over
coming the trouble between labor
and capital. In the discussion of
"Socialism or Communism," that
system was pronounced a failure.
The working out of the life problem
was said to be a personal matter

Sultan's rights, the happiness of the

A London despatch of Aug. 29th
says: It is almost certain that peace
between England and Russia on the
Afghan question is now completely
assured. The two Governments at
present arc busily engaged in ar
ranging the last details of the mu
tual understanding, and negotiations
are proceeding rapidly and har
moniously. The business of con
ducting these final negotiations to a
happy termination is now engross
ing all the time of Baron De Staal,
Russian Ambassador to England,
and in consequence he has been
compelled to forego his customary
A despatch of the same date says :
It is stated that after the Imperial
meeting at Kremsier last Wednes
day, the Czar and his immediate
family appeared to be unusually
pleased over what had transpired at
the conference between De Giers,
Russian Foreign Minister, ' and
Count Kalnoky, Austrian Minister
of Foreign,Affairs, which lasted for
hours. It is believed at this con
ference that De Giers secured
Austria's interest in securing Tur
key's neutrality in the event of war
between Russia and England, in ac
cordance with the decision arrived
at by Prince Bismarck during his
conference with Count Kalnoky at
Narzen. It is certain that during
the whole time of the Imperial con
ferences at Kremsier telegrams were
being constantly sent between 'the
Schloss and Berlin.
The St. Petersburg Official Mes
