William Martin Gillespie, for

Mr. Gillespie was a native of New

went to the Coast as pi ivate secre

Governor of Nevada. lie was elect

Elko county, New Afterward he
was employed as legislative and
general reporter by several Coast
papers. Mr. Gillespie's reports of
the Hawaiian Legislature in the Ha

who do not take into account the
modest claims of the painter, may
find points wherein tho picture does
not come up to the tenets of high

of talent is exhibited in the produc

improvement over Mr. Stratemeycr's

A VESSEL WRECKED.
It was reported about town this
morning that the brigaiitinc Hesperi
an had gone ashore at Kahului and be
come a total wreck. Capt. Crane, of
the schooner Nettie Merrill, makes a
statement in effect as follows: A
week aco Monday he spoke the
Hesperian in the channel, and her
I IUU3LU1 iioivti vuviuaiuuu
lui. He was told, but seemed to
doubt the information. Later the
Hesperian anchored off Lahaina,
and Mr. David Taylor boarded her
and, after informing the captain of
the whereabouts of Kahului,'lcft the
vessel while she got under way.
Just before the Nettie Merrill left
Lahaina on Tuesday evening Mr.
Taylor told Capt. Crane that the
Hesperian had gone ashore at Kahu
lui, last week, and on Monday last
was sold at auction. The natives
who came from the direction of
Kahului confirmed the report. The
'Hesperian is brigaiitinc rigged and
had 250 tons of coal from Pugct
ROBBERY ON SHIPBOARD.
A robbery that occurred night
before last, and which was kept
very quiet in hopes of catching tho
culprit, leaked out this morning in
spite of tlio keeping mum of inter
ested parties. It appears that a
man, nationality and color not
known, entered the cabin of the
tern Eva during the small hours of
that night, and stealthily sought for
plunder. The steward was the first
to smell a rat, and arming himself
with a murderous bulldog pistol ho
proceeded to make a target of tho
depredator. The robber, in hastily
vacating the cabin, dropped his hat,
a small brown felt with a hole in
one side. Some ofthc plunder that
had been gathered was also dropped,
and tho thief, after being shot at
three times, vanished in the dark
noss with the whistling sound of a
flying bullet ringing in his ears.
Police officers are working up tlio
caso with a hat for a clue and
then it will probably end.

I confess lnyseft'oiiiUvny Af J.U?ss
whether to giggle or hiss at the
mendacious arrogance of the person
who sets himself up as a judge of
the political influence or literary
status of a world-wide circulating
public journal, yet plainly shows by
his own words that he is incapable
of discerning the difference between
a magazine and a weekly newspaper,
and this is what friend C. plainly
shows when he speaks of Harper's
WccMy as a magazine! That gen
tleman makes a very sad mistake
when he flippantly insinuates that he
is an older magazine reader than 1
am : and in seeking to belittle such
leading journals as Harper's
Weeldy and the Cincinnati Com
mercial Gazette, he only succeeds
in proving an ignorance in news
paper matters that is truly appalling
in a man of his literary pretentions.
.With an elaborate display of garbled
twaddle .and useless ycrbiage, he
says I have laid myself upon to cen
sure for attacking his beloved poli
tical trickster, St. John, under the
mask of a nom dejylumc. This is a
'mere bit of threadbare subterfuge
and slurring which t was, long ago
done to death by persons who had
no other missile" within their reach.
But the cream of the joke lies in the
fact that, after berating mc for
simply quoting what was printed in
an Eastern paper against the Prohi
bition chieftain, he, almost with the
same breath, hurls a tirade of abu
sive insinuations and malicious innu
endoes at the head of Governor
Hoadly, of Ohio, than whom there
are no more honorable and straight
forward public men to be found in
America or elsewhere; and by all
reliable accounts is "a tough man
to challenge face to face." In com
menting upon that gentleman, why
did not Mr. C. reprint all of my
short quotation from the Governor's
speech? Was not this little morsel
of strategic ctuining suggested by
the well-known fact that the truth
half told will ofttimes serve a pur
pose much better than a direct false
hood? I shall italicise and use his own
burglarious jimmy of words, that he
handles so deftly to force an en
trance for the introduction of a pet
mctljod of insinuation which he has
adopted, and through which he
hopes to steal away at least a por
tion of Gov. Hoadly's good name,
and will say that Mr. C. might have
added: "But I am frequently com
pelled to use, not only an alarming
amount of sophistry, but also of
argumentative inconsistency, in or
der that I may keep up an appear
ance of usefulness, and make my
self solid with the very pious, but
fearfully peevish, alarmists into
whose good graces I havo worked
myself, and whose well-stocked
larders and large purses, filled to re
pletion with the tangible results of
their exposure to perils and ardu
ous Christianising labors among tho
harmless heathen, are to me attrac
tions of no small consideration, and
under whoso protection and liberal
patronage I intend to fight it out for
all the dollars and cents there are
hanging to it." The vote in Ohio
which friend C. cxultingly spreads
before us as a prohibition victory,
was obtained merely through the
generosity of a largo portion of the
prohibition opponents, who were
anxious to settle the vexed question
by allowing the people of each
town, by constitutional amendment,
to decide whether or not liquor
should be sold within their limits.
The vote taken in that State was on
a local option law, and not on a
prohibition law, ns Mr. 0, would
have us bollovo. Tho Ohio election
proved one fact very clearly, and
that is, if both great parlies leave
prohibition alone it will die suddenly
and surely. l-SJjg
For tho benefit, no doubt, of
whomsoever it might concern, fiicnd
C. patronizing!' informs his rcadcis
that he is " not interested, pecu
niarily, pro or con, in tho liquor
business." If lie carpet-bagged it
over the rough lava beds of Hawaii,
lugging along those seven chailsof
diopased stomachs and other piohi
bilion paraphernalia, without tiny
hope of pecuniary interest or bicad
and butler consideration, then I
agree, Mr. Editor, to visit your
olllce and swallow all tho old roller
composition of molasses and glue
that your pressman can pile up be

It is reported that Secretary Bayard
has determined to present the
Tehuantcpcc canal scheme to Con
gress as the basis of a foreign policy
which shall be distinctly American.
The isthmus is 1(55 miles wide. An
American company was at work
there for some time up to last year
on a railroad, the progress of which
was stopped bj" the forfeiture of
their land grauls to the Mexican
Government. The President of this
company was Edward Learned of
Massachusetts, who says: "It is
entiiely feasible to construct a canal
across the isthmus. What this
country ought to have is a treaty
light over a stiip of territory there,
say fifty miles wide. We should
also have a fortress and naval station
at Cape Catoche, on the outmost
point of Yucatan. We have already
one great defense in the gulf of
Mexico, at the Dry Toilugus. With
a fort at Capo Catoche, the gulf
would be a land-locked sea and we
would be able' to protect the Missis
sippi and its tributaries from any
foreign invasion. With a ship canal
at Tehuantcpcc we could protect
California mid Oregon and become
absolutely unassailable. Besides,
the canal would bring us all the
trade of England that now goes to
the East around the Cape of Good
Hope or the Sue, canal."
