THE FIRE OF YESTERDAY-
Section 1 of Chapter 89 of the
Penal Code reads as follows: " No
person shall receive, keep or store,
or cause to be received, kept or
stored, or aid or assist any person
in receiving, keeping or storing, or
have at any one time on any pre
mises owned, leased or occupied by
him, except the storehouse provided
therefor by the Government, more
than one case of naphtha and one
case of benzole, nor more than ten
cases of petroleum, licioscne oil, or
any oil of which the component part
is petroleum, naphtha, or spirits of
turpentine." According to this, gas
oline, which is a deiivative of petro
leum (sometimes), is allowed to be
htored in quantities of ten cases. If
a 120-gallon tank is implied in the
term " case," then, by the law, the
proprietors of the storage yatd
where the fire occurred yesterday,
exceeded their privilege in having
fourteen tanks stored there. But,
as we have been informed, the"
usually keep only ten tanks al a
time, and the case in question was an
exceptional one a consignment in a
leaking condition having just been
received. Therefore, there is not
very much cause for censure of
either the firm or the authorities, in
legard to the event in question. Wc
should think, however, that bo in
flammable a material as gasoline
should be placed in the same cate
gory as naphtha and benzole. Also,
ttiat greater care should be observed
by dealers in such dangerous arti
cles, to prevent such careless hand
ling as caused yesterday's fire.
Again must attention be drawn to
the stupid economy that leaves the
city furnished with water plugs of
an ancient design, the opening of
which at flies is attended with de
lays that may at any time result in
the destruction of hundreds of
thousands, of dollars' worth of pro
perty. These sunken hydrants would
have their location lost after every
rain storm, if the mud was not
shovelled off their coveiings. They
would not be so objectionable us re?
jegards facility of turning on water,
however, if only suitable keys were
provided for them, which surely
would not cost much. The keys
carried by thehoscmen ate too short,
or the wells , are too deep for tho
keys, and the latter are also weak
and ill-made for their purpose.
A wise provision, that might be
imitated by othor property-owners,
was exhibited duripg the recent fire
by the proprietor of the Yoscmite
skalingVirik. He has a water pipe
running up through tho roof of that
buidling, by which when the flic
broke out, the roof was speedily
chenched with water, defying any
sparks that might llnvo alighted
THE PLANTERS' MONTHLY.
The Planters' Monthly for Sep
tember is out. It contains the usual
variety of valuable information for
planters. Discussing the labor sup
ply of the future, the editor rccom-
, mends a continuation of Japanese
immigration "o long ns there is a
demand for it. An article on the
tiealnicnt of laboras on the planta
tions, emphatically denies that the
laborers at e ever beaten or othcr-
jwise ill-treated. Local papers which
have given euriency to a contrary
impression arc hauled over the
coals. A this paper has done so,'
we may say that it was upon the
strength of information directly
conveyed bj' credible gentlemen,
who professed to have been wit
nesses of liiallreatmenl while resi
dents of planting districts. At the
same time, wc have never received
or sought to convey the impression
that the alleged evils existed in more
than exceptional cases. The ini
poi taut announcement is made that
the Trustees of the Planters' Labor
and Supply Company have given in
their approval' to tho policy of the
Minister of the Interior, in having
boards of inspectors appointed for
each nationality considerably repre
sented in the labor on the planta
tions. This is an endorsement of
the position taken by the Bui.li.tin
upon that question at the outset,
in the face of very influential repre
sentations that the policy was a
menace to the independence of the
country. So dependent is Ha
waiian prosperity upon cheap labor
fiom abroad, in the present con
dition of things, that the kingdom
should be prepared to make reason
able concessions to those countries
that are its principal sources of
labor supply. "Further, it appears
in this case that the policy adopted
was not by any means dictated by
Japan, but was conceived with a
view to proving beyond a doubt to
the Government of that nation that
the promises made to it, respecting
the treatment of its subjects
were thoroughly sincere.
Canon Farrar, who delivered the
eulogy on Gen. Grant in "Westmin
ster Abbey, is going to visit the
United States shortly. The Ameri
can people and press may be de
pended upon to duly honor the pre
sence of the celebrated master of
The present unhappy condition of
Spain is pictured by a Granada cor
respondent, whose letter in a Lon
don paper concludes thus: "There
is little doubt that this country is
passing through a grave crisis.
Mortality is increasing, trade para
lyzed. In face of impending and
widespread misery the Government
is still inactive and procrastinating.
It needs no prophet to foretell the
storm which must burst over Spain
unless a wide and prompt mode of
legislation is quickly entered upon,
to efllciently cope with and provide
for her alarmingly disastrous con
dition." The German Government is hav
ing a shaft sunk near Schladcbach,
to ascertain , the increase of the
earth's tcmpcratuie toward the in
terior. At a depth of' 1,392 meters
the temperature was -19 deg. Centi-
cradc, or 120 Fahrenheit. "If the-
temperature increases regularly at
this rate," says a commentator,
" the boiling point of water ought to
be reached at a depth of 3,000
meters, or nearly two miles, and at
45 miles uc should flud tho heat at
which pla'tinum melts. This would
go to show that the earth's crust
cannot be mote than about one
ninetieth of its ladius."
An article in Sugar Jieet, on
"Sorghum Sugar in Kansas and
New Jersey," shows that the aver
ago results obtained in those States
have not exceeded one and a half
percent on tho cane worked. In
contrasting with that return the yield
of ten percent given by the beet in
Germany, tho periodical named de
precates the proposal to suppress the
importation of beet sugar, preferring
" a high tariff nud encomagenientof
the Southern sugar interest." It (
says, "If beet sugar enters our
ports in picfcrcncc to cane sugar,
and is consumed by our people, it is
one step tow aid convincing tho com
munity that beet sugar is n realizable
fact, and that it will possibly prove
a great savior of our nation."
The Scientific American, in an
article on "Natural" Gas "Vcll3 in
Ohio," speculates upon the probabil
ities of that valuable product being
found in permanent supply. It says :
"Unless wc regard the earth as a
vast lcscrvoirfatorcd with gas, some
what after the Pintsch system of
compression, wo must contemplate n
time when this full supply will be
come exhausted, and abandoned
pipe lines will tell the same story as
,the decaying oil derricks. But the
past of our 'industrial progress is a
promise for the future ; and we may
feel with confidence that as tho
candle gave way to whale oil, whale
oil to pctioleum, petroleum to gas,
and gas to electricity, so, with our
fuel, that natural gas will disappear,
only to make room for something
The astronomer of the Scientific
American says that the maximum of
sun spot activity probably passed in
the latter part of the year 1883.
But, " during a recent observation,
made with a three-inch refractor,"
he " saw on one daj' six, and on an
other day nine of these little black
patches ou the shining orb.' .Ob
servers in different parts of Europe,
on the 11th of June, saw two spots
with the naked eye. The above
authoiity believes the blemishes will
decrease until the sun is nearly free
of them in 1889, and then slowly in
crease until about' 1893, when the
maximum is reached and continues
for two or three years. This matter
is not devoid of interest, even to
people whose minds but seldom
center on celestial things. Thcie is
a strongly held opinion that sun
spots affect earth's climates hence
human health and dispositions, as
well as harvests, and consequently
all earthly affairs.
