TUESDAY, AUGUST ill, 188G.
This morning's Ailverlixer con
tains mi olllcinl notification of the
resignation of Colonel C. II. Jutkl
of tlic positions of Chamberlain to
the Itoynl Household anil Coininit
sionor of Crown Lands ;iml Land
Agent, and the appointment of Col
onel Curtis P. Intikcn to the vacan
cies. Colonel Judil liad n long term
of service, notwithstanding deter
mined and persistent endeavors from
the outside to dislodge him. The
holder of tlico ofllucs lias consider
able to do with the public. As
Commissioner and Agent of Crown
Lands, he has the leasing of those
lands, collecting of rents, K.c. As
His Majesty's Chamberlain he is
brought into contact with foreign
representatives, visitor- from abroad,
and a considerable portion of the
general public at Royal .Receptions,
&c. From which it is patent that a
gentlemanly bearing and suavity of
manner are prime requisites in the
incumbent of the olllcc. These are
well known to bo prominent traits of
the gentleman just appointed, and
for that reason the appointment is
favorably commented on by the
public. A better selection could
scarcely have been made. If ap
pointments to the public service
were marked by the same regard for
fitness in the appointees, the public
would have occasion to icjoice.

Tui:siay, Aug. 28th.
The house met at 10 o'clock.
Opened with prayer by the Chap
lain. Present: Ministers Gibson,
Creighton and Dare ; Nobles Cleg-

Rep. Kichardson reported the en

5 of the bill relating to

relating to permanent .settlements be
taken from the table and placed on
the order of the day. Carried.
oituKK or tiii: day.
Third reading of an act to con
tinue the subsidy heretofore granted
for mail communication between the
Hawaiian Islands and the United
States of America.
Rep. Keau moved the bill pass.
Hep. Kaunamano moved to strike
out the clause, "That the freight on
each bunch of bananas shall not
exceed fifty cents." He considered
that this house had no light to
dictate "rates of freight" to the
Steamboat Company, giving his rea
Rep. Keau expressed his surprise
at the motion of the previous speaker.
They had worked together in the
shipment of bananas formerly, and
had no differences. Hence, ho did
not understand this change of opinion.
The Assembly had made grants for
the steamboat company, and it was
only fair that something should now
he done for the small land owners.
If he (the speaker) hud his way, he
would not vote one cent for the com
pany, as he consideied they ic
ceived too much at the present tatc-t.
Noble Cleghorn said hu rose to
correct the lion, member for Ilaina
Jua with regard to statements lie
he had made on the subject of
freight. It was not true that the
bananas wero well cared for. It is
notorious that both passengers mid t
crew help themselves to tlio fruit as
it ripens, and if the mere Mem is I
landed in San Francisco, the freight
has to be paid the samo as ona
complete bunch. It seemed strange I
to him that there should exist a di
biro to reduce the subsidy to the
Hep. Keau moved that section 1 '
be amended so us to read "81,250,"
instead of "81,500."
Hep. Thurston considered that a
motion of that nature was out of
order. To co members change
their votes, as they have done, he
considered was evidence of undue
influence- having been brought to
benr on them.
Hep. Ilnysclden said the lion, i
member for Molokni had made sonic
sweeping charges, which ho "might
he called upon to answer.
The nycs and nous wero taken on
the motion to strike out 1,500 and

The British Liberals' address is
rather an encouraging document.
They do not conceal their chargin
over the losses they met with at the
last election, but they console them
selves with the reflection that all re
forms take time to permeate the
public- mind. They now call for a
general consultation of Liberals to
consider the expediency of extend
ing Ilio demand for home rule to
every section of the kingdom to
Kngiand, Scotland and Wales, as
well as Lreland. This is a step in
the right direction.
In view of the fact that the
Biitish voting population was nearly
doubled by the Act of 1881 that
something like two million people
were suddenly gifted with the fran
chise without previous training or
education, we ought not to be sur
prised at the victory of the Tory
Unionists la?t month. Politics aie
like sliocmakiiig no man is born
with a knowledge of either. It is
no wonder at all that the masses of
British people were deluded by the
specious lies spread broadcast by
Salisbury and Churchill.. They
knew no better. We know how it is
ourselves. There is hardly a Presi
dential election in this country at
which important constituencies are
not swayed by demagogical appeals
at which sensible men laugh. It
was so in Kngiand. The Tories re
presented Gladstone as conspiring
for the destruction or the British
empire. Kvory Tory of ordinary
education knew that the charge was
infamously false, and that, whatever
a few extreme Irish leaders might
dream, there wits no prospect of the
severance of Ireland from the ret
of the kingdom. But the new
Biitish voters were too ignorant to
understand this, just as communi
ties in this country are too ignorant
to see through the appeals to pre
judice and selfishness by which po
litical leaders retain their control.
So Gladstone was beaten.
The Liberal plan for a movement
for general federation, to embrace
England, Scotland and Wales, as
well as Ireland, is a step in the di
rection of a durable settlement
ol' the question. If care
be taken to educate the masses on
the advantage of a distribution of a
power, and of dividing local from
imperialr Government, the next
general election, which cannot be far
distant, may reverse the veidictof
the election of last;. p. .b.
All ERA OF GRAND OLD MEN.
If Sidonia had belonged to the
second instead of the first half of the
current century, it is probable that
the celebrated eluogy on youfh with
which lie lavorcd Coningsby during
their memorable interview at the
country inn would have been con
siderably modified, if not altogether
suppiesscd. lie would have at
least peiceived that the era of
"AVondroiis Boys" had gone by,
and that (he era of "Grand Old
Men" had set in. It is true, he
would have said, that Napoleon
conquered Itidy at Ave and twenty.
But Moltke conquered France at
bixty-nine. Byron and Shelley no
doubt died before they were forty.
But Tennyson and Browning arc
piping away as fluently as ever at
threescore years and ten, while the
poetic ardor of Victor Hugo was un
cooled and undimmed at fourscore
years. If Richelieu became Secre
tary of State at thirty-one, Thiers
became President of the Republic at
eighty. If Innocent 111 was the des
pot of Christendom at thirty-seven,
the pomAcate of Pius JX almost
equal "the years of Peter" when his
infalibility was proclaimed by the
Church. If Bolingbroke and Pitts
wero Ministers before other men
leave off cricket, Palmerston and
Beaconslleld were at the height of
their power as Premiers when other
men hein to think of leaving off
whist. At the present moment the
destinies pf Germany, France and
Kngiand are in the hands of states
men, all of whom have exceeded the
limits assigned by the Psalmist to
the lives of the sons of Adam. The
German Chancellor is seventy-two,
the French President is eighty-one
and the English Prime Minister is
seventy-seven ; and although it may
be true that "thu history of heroes
is thu history of youth," it is", nt any
rate, certain that Europe Is now at
the feet of age, (London World.
"Mamma, w;hat is hereditary?"
asked Bobby, laboriously tripping
over the syllables of the Jong word.
"Why, it is it is anything you get
from your father or me," replied
thu mother, a little puzzled for a
definition suited to his years.
Silence of two minuted. "Then,
ma," ho asked, "is spankin's hereditary?"
"THAT FLAUNTING LIE."
The danger of having matter in
typo floating around a newspaper
olllcc, when not intended for publi
cation, was never more forcibly illus
trated than in the caso of the poem,
"Tear Down that Flaunting Lie,"
printed in the Tribune just, before
the war. It attracted universal at
tention and animadversion. A well
known Abolitionist who had written
the poem had asked that it be put
in type, und that a few slips be
struck off for his personal use. This
was done, but the type wns not dis
tributed, and was left on galley
among other articles.
A few nights afterward us Sam
Walters, the night foreman, wns
makiiiL' ui the (list side of the
paper, he found himself destitute of
matter to All u little space in the
form. He measured the space with
a string and then searched the galleys
for an article to (111 it. lie found
the poem, "Tear Down that Flaunt
ing Lie." That Haunting lie was
the stars and stripes, which the
author cursed, because it floated
over a land where human slavery
was tolerated. The poem exactly
Ailed the space desired, and the
foreman flapped it into the form.
About 20,000 papers wero printed
and distiibuled before the mistake
was discovered. The page of type
was then taken from the press and
the poem lifted out; but it was a
long lime before the Tribune re
covered from the shock that its un
witting publication produced. The
CIVILIZATION AND THE PARCEL POST.
The parcel post has now been ex
tended to (he three most important
Australian Colonies, the Canada
service will begin on the 1st of
August, the remainder of Austra
lasia will probably soon follow suit,
and when Italy, Spain, anil France
signify their adhesion, a large part
ol the civilized world will be in
cluded within this magic circle of
convenience. If some intelligent
person who lived a hundred and
fifty, or even a hundred years ago,
could be resuscitated, we think he
would be more astonished by such
an institution as the Parcel Post
than by express trains, "grey
hounds of the Atlantic," telegraphs,
or telephones. It is quite true that
the Parcel Post could never have
come into existence without these
inventions, but then they were not
at least in theory novelties to
our forefathers, because the possi
bility of swift methods of communi
cation lias been a human aspiration
f loin time out of mind. But the
establishment, of the Parcel Post
presupposes a condition of order
and civilization over a large a 1'irge
portion of the earth's surface which
would have seemed incredible to the
man of 1780, and even more so to
the man of 17.'!G. A hundred and
fifty years ago Christendom was still
little more than an oasis in a vast
and imperfectly explored wilder
ness of barbarism. The barbarism
has now been replaced by civiliza
tion to such a surpiising extent that
to places which in Swiit's days were
so little known that they might be
the abodes of dwarfs or giants, a
parcel weighing eleven pounds will
next month be securely carried by
Her Majesty's Post Olllcc for a fee
of less than a sovereign. All this is
convenient, but it is destructive of
romance. A hundred years hence
there will be no really wild places
only few artificially-preserved wilder
ness, such as the Cumberland Lake
district and Yellowstone Park"; the
only surviving lions, tigcis, and
Rhinoceroses will be iugmenngerics ;
and there will be a steep-grade rail
way to the top of every mountain
in the world. Graphic.
"TEN THOUSAND LIES."
'lhe Rev. Stephen Gladstone lias
written as follows to a correspondent
who had pointed out an extract in a
Tory newspaper, contributed by "a
London correspondent," alleging
unhappy differences of opinion and
fooling in Mr. Gladbtone's family
ILvw'Aitur.N Kr.OTOiiY, July 17, 1886.
Di:ar Silt, I thank you for your
letter. It is a hopeless task to ex
pect to be able to contradict the
ten thousand lies circulated by
Tories about niy father. In the
present instance, every single state
ment by "a London correspondent"
in the extract you scud me Is false.
That is the only answer 1 have to
make. Friends may rest assured, in
spite of prehont reverses, that Mr.
Gladstone has no more doubt that
Ireland's aspirations for self-government
will eventually be conceded to
her than that the sun which is hid
den to-day will soon shine out splen
didly again; and for my part I
firmly believo that Kngiand, when
better informed, will yet, "unless the
Consertvatlvcs change their minds,"
wish to give him and his bravo and
true collcaguo the commission to
carry out a great measure of Irish
self-government, which will be but
an act of wisdom, justice and good
will, Yours very faithfully,
Sixriinx E. Gladstone.

Great Excitement in Wales
about a Marvellous Cure.
Living Six Years Without
Going to Bed.
Jilt. Eoixnii: While i-pcndlng a few
days al the plenmul seaside town of
Aberystwlth, Cardlunriilie, Wales, I
hcaril related what seemid to inu cither
a fabulous stoiy or a marvellous cute.
The story was that a pooi sullVi i r ho
had not been able to lie down in led lor
six long years, given up lo die lij i II tho
Doctors, lind been spiedlly cured by
some Patent Medicine. It was telated
with the more implicit cunlldcncu fiom
the circumstance, as was tuid, ihni thu
Vlcurof Llaurystyd was familiar with
tho facts, and could vouch for the truth
of tho repoit.
Having a little curiosity to know how
such stories grow lu liiwelllng, I took
tho liberty while at the village of Linn,
ryttvd to call upon the Vicar, the Rev.
T. Evans, and to enqulro about this
wonderful cine. Thoue.li a total sti an
ger to him, both lie nml Ids wife most
graciously enteitnlmd me in a half
hour's conversation, principally touching
the case of Mr. I'ugh, in which they
seemed to take a di.ep and sympathetic
.luteics-t, having been familiar with hi
sullerlugs, and now lejolceil in what
seemed to them a most iciuarkablc cuic.
Tho Vicar remnikcd thulhcpicsumcd
his name had been connected with the
report from his having mentioned the
case to Mr. John Thomas, a chemist of
Llanon. Ho said Mr. I'ugh was former
ly a icsidentof their parish, but was now
living in the parish of Llnnddelnol.
He strongly vouched Mr. Wm. Pugh's
character as a respcctaMu fanner and
worthy of credit. I left the vcneiablo
Vicar with a livelier tense of li e happy
relation of a pastor nnd people, feeling
that he was one who truly sympathised
with all who aie afflicted in mind, body,
On my return to Abeijstwith, 1 w, as
impressed wilh a 'desire to see Mr. Puirli,
whose reputation stood so high. His
farm is called Pancom-Mawr, signifying
"above the dingle," situated near the
summit of a smooth tound hill, over
looking a benutitul valley in which is
situated tho lovely ivy mantled Chinch
of Llanddcinol. I iound Mr. Pugh,
apparently about 40 years old. of mid ium
height, rather blight, with a pleasant aud
intelligent face. 1 told him I had heard
of his great affliction and of his icmark
alilo and almost in it aculous relief, and
that 1 had come to learn fiom his own
lips, what there wns ol truth in lhe re
ports. Mr. Pugh remarked that his neigh
bors had taken a kindly and symp
athetic interest in his case for many
years, but of lute their interest had been
greatly awakened by a hapy change in

iafiy true, with one exception. 1 never
understood that my case was ever given
up as hopeless by any Physicinn. I
have beeD treated by scveial Doctors
hereabouts, as good as any In "Wales, but
unfortunately no prescription of theirs
ever brought the desired relief.
Fifteen years ago, he said, I first be
came conscious ot u sour and deranged
stomach, and loss ot appetite, which the
Doctors told me was Dyspepsia. What
food I could hold in my stomach seem
ed to do me no good and was often
thrown up with painful retchings. This'
was followed after a time with a hoarse
ness and a raw sotcness of the tin oat
which the Doctois called bionchitis,.
and I was treated for that, but.with
little Miccess. Then came shoitucss of
breath and a sense of suffocation, et.po
dally nights; with clammy sweat, and X

About six yeais ago I became- so had
that I could not sleep in bed, but had lo
take my unquiet rest aud dieamj sleep
sitting in an annchair. My affliction
seemed to bo working downward into
my bowels ns well as upwards into my
lungs and throat. In the violent cough
ing spasms which grew more fiequent,
my abdomen would expand and collapso
and at times it would seem that 1 should
sullbcate. All this time I was reduced
in strength so that I could perform no.
hard labor and my spirits werM conse
quently much depressed.
Early in.this last spring I had a still
more severe spasmodic nil ad;, and my
family and ncighbois became alarmed,
believing that ccrtniuly I would not sur

knowledge, or had heard of the medi

of the Omnibus Post, soma seven miles
distant, and fetched a bottle of Mother
Sclgel's Curative Syrup.

their surprise and delight no less than
my own, the spnstn ceased. I became at
ease, and my stomach wns calmed. My
bowels wcic moved as by a gentle
cathartic, aud I fell a sense of quiet,
comfort all tliiough such as I had not
before realized in ninny years. I could
walk around the house and breathe
comfortably in n few hours after I had
taken the medicine. I have continued
to take, the medlcino daily now for
something over two months, aud I can

and have not sinro had a lecurrcncu of

my nclehbor; especially by tho good
