A LARGE PAYMENT.
Some time ago the Hui.i.i:tik an
nounced that the special deposit in
tbe Post Office Savings Bank, on
account of Japanese, was to be with
drawn early this year. This de
posit with interest amounted to
$102,000, and it was paid in gold at
the Treasury to-day. Just why the
Japanese Government should hesi
tate to entrust the safe keeping of
these funds to the Hawaiian Govern
ment is perhaps only known to the as
tuteoflicialsat Tokio,butthe promptitude-of
the settlement of their claim
should dissipate any suspicion they
may have cherished of the absolute
security which the Poqt Ollice Sav
ings Bank offers to depositors. It
is understood that the deposits in
this public institution ranges be-
and 25,000 per
decision of the Supreme
Court on the Act of November 2Gth,
1887, published in the Bullutik on
the 4th instant, appears to have
given general satisfaction. It may
have disconcerted certain plans and
rendered now combinations proba
ble, but the country is entirely the
gainer by tlic assured stability oi
the Supreme Court and its indepen
dence of tho Crown and Legislature.
Now that it is decided that we have
anindependent Judiciaty would itnot
be as well for the Attorney-General,
representing tho Government, to at
once take steps to test the validity
of certain bills vetoed by the King,
but promulgated nevertheless as
laws under tho signature of Hon.
W. K. Castle, President of the
Legislature, endorsed that it was re
turned to that body unsigned, and
setting forth further particulars.
These bills or laws embody a
grave constitutional issuo which
cannot be settled one hour too soon.
A question of fact is also involved,
namely, whether the endorsement in
question is an accurate recital of the
facts of tho case, that is, whether
it is competent in the Legislature to
ignore a veto message from the
King and thereby nullify Articlo '18
of the Constitution. - This point
arises solely through the action of
tho Legislature in erasing from its
records something which the Con
stitution requires should be en
tered on them and acted upon.
These points should come up in
some specific form and bo settled
once for all early in the lifo of the
new Constitution. Wo say this in
the interest of peace and harmony.
No useful public end can be served
by uncertainty. If tho Constitu
tion be found defective in practiu,
and it has not had a fair trial yet,
it can be amended. But a judicial
rtiliug is necessary for the sako of
future legislation, to the end that
conflicts may not arise between the
,Crown ud the Legislature, and
tlwt crude or ill-advised laws may
not bo passed under tho spur of
popular clamor or personal ambition.
The Supremo Court is the tribunal
to oottle nil such controversial
points, and when its decision hai
been given all should submit.
METHOD IK THEIR MADNESS,
A daintily clad little woman
was one of the best operators as well
as the prettiest whom I had no
ticed several times in a down-town
typewriting ollice, was missing from
her desk the other day. The
plump, prosperous-looking head of
the establishment smoothed down
rebellious reddish-brown locks as
she explained, to an accompanying
clatter and bang, as if the whole
alphabet were out on a spree: "I
didn't, expect to keep her long,"
she said. "She came to me a year
ago to learn tbe business, and her
mother she wore diamonds came
with her, hall-apologhing lor her
daughter's whim. The two of them
wore gowns that turned the heads of
the whole olllco, and looked as if
they had money enough, and to
spare. It turned out, when 1 was
in my new apprentice's confidence a
little, that she was engaged to a law
student an impecunious one and
they wanted to marry as soon nsjio
was admitted to the bar. 'Papa'
had absolutely refused his consent,
and 'mamma, frowned on the whole
thing. So what does my lady do
but get permission, without assign
ing any reason for the freak, to
learn typewriting she is studying
shorthand too having taken the
idea into her head that, if she and
her law student chose to marry
when tho time came, she could sup
port the family until the appearance
of some fees. They had the knot
tied a couple of clays ago, the house
hold powers to tbe contrary not
withstanding, and are taking a
week's holiday somewhere on the
shore. She told me she should be
ready for work when she came back,
and 1 think she will. She had been
earning S7 a week, and is about ex
pert enough to get S10 now. That
will help them out for a while,
though I fancy her husband won't
leave her here long." Tho next
question in the matrimonial market,
some folks say, will be, "What is
her salary?" or, "Has she had a
raise of late?" Phil. Press.
PRIC3 IN PARLIAMENT.
The badger-baiting instincts of
the young English "gentleman"
have full play here. Night after
night some dozen of those aristo
cratic dullards come in after dinner
and take their places on the front
bench nearest to the Irishmen oppo
site. They are mostly in evening
dress, with roses in their button
holes, -and an insolent, vinous grin
on their faces. The moment any
Irish member gets up to speak
these gentry begin to laugh and
jeer, or 3ay, "Divide! divide!
divide!" in unison, as rapidly as
they can. They vary this from
time to time by saying audibly
among themselves, "what a cad!"
"Who's his tailor, I wonder?" and
things of that sort. There is in all
this only the natural expression of
instincts which have been bred in
these cubs by generations ef rat
killing, dog-lighting, fox-hunting,
badger-baiting ancestors. These
young fellows know nothing beyond
the noble range of what they call
If any one of this dozen types
of ten thousand were asked sud
denly who Katoff or Jules Ferry
was he would look at you in sur
prise. He knows the name and
record of racing horses ; lie knows
the masters of the hunts, the best
cricketers, the owners of the crack
yachts. lie does not know what
century Chaucer lived, but he
knows that you ma shoot grouse
after the 12th of August. He is in
Parliament because it is the right

or demerits of the measure dis
cussed he knows and cares nothing.
lie is annoyed at the Government
keeping the session going through
the summer, while he might be hav
ing sport in tho country. lie re
venges himself by badgering the
Irishmen on the seals opposite. If
lie cannot put his terriers into the
rat-pit he can insult Parncllites.

THE BENEFITS OHRRl'CATION.
Until recently the residents of
Central California had as a stock
argument that their lands were bet
ter than ours was because they did
not have to irrigate. Their fruit
was better llavored than ours be
cause they had not been irrigated.
Of course it was not true, but they
had repealed it so of ten that they
really believed in it religiously.
Now, however, a change has come
over them. Some few courageous
ones made Uic experiment of irri
gating and wcro astonished and de
lighted. The fever spread and now
there aro irrigating enterprises pro
jected that will cost millions of dol
lars and it will bo money well
Tho Colusa "Sun" has been one
of the ardent believers in irrigation,
and has done and is doing yeoman
service. In tho last issue it prints
the following intervlow, which shows
that tho people are waking up to tho
benefit of irrigation and tho results
that have been' and may bo obtained :
Wo mot AY". S. Anderson on tho
street Tuesday ovening, and know
ing that ho was a pioneer irrigator
in tho Flic Creek neighborhood, or
Stony creek, wo fell into conversa
tion with him, A fow years ago ho
purchased a small tract ol land on
the creek entirely on credit, and ho
had nothing but his hands. He
started in the first place to dig a
dttch out of tho creek to irrigate it.
His neighbors laughed at him. They
said it would not stand irrigation,
and that nothing but failure could
result; but ho kept at work, and
put in forty acres of alfalfa. This
grew so ns to astonish tho neighbor
hood, lie planted vegetables, fruit
trees, etc., and soon began to get
ahead. Some of his neighbors fol
lowed his example and they suc
ceeded. A short time ago Mr. An
derson went to Fresno and saw what
they were doing with water, and he
concluded to mnke a purchase of a
small tract of land, lie came home
and sold the farm on the creek, for
which be paid 53,000, for S7,G00
and paid for his Fresno farm. So
valuable has the water idea become
at the creek since Mr. Anderson's
demonsltation that the land will
"stand irrigation," that land has
almost doubled in value since he
sold his. People who laughed at
him for thinking tho land up there
would stand water are adding fiO
and 100 per cent to the value of
their land because they have learned
that water will make vegetable mat
ter grow. Nobody there is now
talking of putting a shed over his
land to keep the water off. llcA
WILD GEESE GALORE.
At this particular season of the
year the epicure of Sacramento and
San Krancisco is luxuriating upon
the festive goose, nnd the fanners of
the Sacramento valley would be de
lighted if the swarms of the fowls
which arc now coming in for winter
quarters could be transferred in a
body to the cilv maikuts. If the
San Francisco denizen, who looks
with longing eyes at the tempting
display of dressed geese in the mar
kets and show windows of San Fran
cisco, could look upon the immense
flocks of the birds as they swoop
down upon the wheat fields in this
section of tho Slate, and see how
numerously they are Itillcd and left
tying on the ground, their idea of
goose luxury would vanish.
Not until late years have the
geese invaded the farming precincts
of Yolo county to a 113' damaging ex
tent, but now they arc looked for
with mingled confidence and dread
by the farmers in the northern por
tion of the county. TI1C3' generally
make their appearance early in the
fall or just before the fall rains.
Their first visit is confined to the
country along the river or where
the3' can obtain water, but after the
rains come and water can be had on
the back plains they migrate to the
wheat fields and live sumptuously
upon the wheat stubble. Yet their
numbers are indeed small in this
county as compared to those which
infest Colusa county, as the large
expanse of barren plains in the lat
ter count3' affords them a belter
rendezvous. The writer has seen
them in bands which covered as
much as fify acres of ground.
These invading armies are veiy
damaging to 3'oung grain, and as
soon ns the grain begins to sprout it
is necessary to cmplo3 "herders,"
who parade the fields with rifles
and drive them off. Such farmers
as Boggs. Hideout, the Glenn Ranch,
etc., empl03r no less than a dozen of
these herders every fall and winter,
who live in cabins distributed over
their lands. Of late 3'ears the farm
ers of Y'olo county in Hungry Hol
low and along tho tides have also
found it necessary to herd off the
fowls in order to protect their grain.
People living where these geese
abound so plentifully scarcely ever
use them for food. In the early
part of tho season they use them,
but as soon ns the grass starts and
the flavor begins to grow strong thc3'
are not considered fit to be eaten,
but the hunters, all the same, con
tinue to hcud them into the maiket
for the epicures of the metropolis.
These fowls also feed at night, es
pecially on moonlight nights, but
the ducks arc more troublesome
alter nightfall. One plan adopted
by the farmers is to station lighted
lanterns over the fields, but the
ducks soon learn to walk up to the
lanterns to warm their feet. These,
fowls, both geeso and ducks, aro a
great nuisance in quarters where
they congregate in such numbers,
and the farmer finds them a stub
born C11C1113' to contend with. The
goose is by no means the proverbial
"goose" applied to his name.

AMERICAN NAVAL OFFICERS WITH JAP
Writing of tin; marriage of Lieu
tenant Foil Ik of the United Stales
Navy to a Japanese girl, a Yokoha
ma correspondent of tho St. Louis
Democrat, says :
"Once before an ollicer of tho
Amciloan Navy has been married to
a Japaneso woman, and ho still re
sides here, never having gono home.
It happened some Jit teen years ago,
when the young American Lieute
nant obtained two years' leave of
absence for tho purpose of giving
instruction in a Japanese engineer
ing college. When his time was
up, the deep and strange fascina
tion of this country was upon him
and rather than break tho spell and
leave these ideal surroundings and
tho quiet, poetio life he resigned
from tho navy and ceased all com
munication with his family. He
was not happy with his 'wife and ho
wrote her that ho should never return-
and that she might get a di
vorce or do as she pleased. He
attached himself as nominal teacher
in tho family of a rich Kioto noble,
this giving him tho right to llvo In n
city in the interior) and taking a
Japanese wife, adopting the Jap
anese dross and making himself en
tirely one with the natives, he quite,
ceased to bo considered a foreigner
at all. Some of his old eliiiuiiatcs,
returning to this station, havo tried
their best to hunt up the exile, but
failed, as ho assumed a Japanese
nnmo with Japanese dress, and there
is no way to traco him or get at
him. There is a tradition that he is
often seen tiding about the streets
of Kioto, and one man claims to
have seen him at Yaamis hotel there
one night. The delightful mystery
about the man increases with dif
ferent versions of the rcasons,for
exile. Ouo is that he dropped out
of his old world Hocicty to escape
from his wife, all other means hav
ing failed. The other side is -that
it was Ids romantic love for his Jap
anese wife that caused him to sacri
fice home, country, family, friends,
his profession and ambition for the
dreamy, monotonous, comtempla
tivc lite that he lea'ds-'in the aban
doned capital of old Japan. His
American wife, who lives in Phila
delphia, obtained a divorce a few
years ago and it is rumored that the
mysterious masqticrader has re
sumed communication with some of
Ids relative and will come out of his
seclusion now that a part of the
necessit3' is past."
OIL QUELLING AH ANGRY SEA.
A frequent cause of disaster to
ships is the breaking of seas over
them, and on this point the Ilydro
graphcr of the United States has
published within the last two years,
in pamphlet form, digested from the
Monthly Pilot Giant, a list of 120
authenticated cases in which furious
seas were allayed by the use of oil,
the latest proof of which is furnished
by Captain Wales of the British
steamer New Guinea, as follows:
"In January of the present year,
making passage from Baltimore to
Antwerp, encountered a very heavy
western gale, accompanied by a tre
mendous sea. Considerable dam
age had been done to boats and
about the decks by the seas coming
over the tide, and the Captain wish
ing to avoid heaving the vessel to,
if possible, decided to try the effects
of oil, his attention having been
called to it 113' the perusal of printed
accounts. Two men were stationed
forward one at each closet with
ordinary soup and bully cans filled
with raw linseed oil, the bottoms of
the cans having been punched with
two or three small holes. The oil
was allowed to trickle into the bowl
and thence into the sea, with what
seemed to the Captain a-wonderful
effect. The oil-slick extended well
out on cither quarter, and so far
astern that not a single' sea broke
on board after the use of the oil was
The Captain described the man
ner 111 which the great while-crested
seas would . come roaring alter the
ship, as if U1C3' would sweep her
decks fore and aft; and how, on
meeting the oil-slick, the crest of
the sea would apparently be shat
tered into fine spray, and nothing
left of the tremendous breaker but
an enormous swell, over which the
ship rode easily and without taking
a drop of water. The captain gave
lus personal attention to tno expen
diture of oil, regulating its flow by
stopping one or more of the holes
in the can when more than was ne
cessary ran out, and in this way be
succeeded in making seven gallons
of oil last twentj'-four hours. All
this time his decks were almost ab
solutely dr3', the only water coming
on board being the lino spray from
the crest of each wave as it came
into contact with the oil-slick, and
was blown on board by the wind.
Captain Wales adds that he makes n
point of using oil when even not ab
solute' necessary, as it adds i-o
much to the comfort of all on board,
and eases the ship. It would seem
to be the part of discretion, now
that the question of tho use of oil In
such cases is finally settled, that all
ships be regularly equipped with ap
pliances for casting oil on the water,
just as the3' are compelled to carry
lights and compasses. "Sea break
ers"; appliances for the distribu
tion of oil have been patented
both at home and abroad, and arc
now used by cattle-carrying steam
ers and some other vessels. Special
oil is now manufactured for this
purpose. Forum for Novcm her.
LIVING 111 LONDON.
The cost of living in London
very much as one shall elect to make
it. ' In the new and most pretentious
hotels about Trafalgar Square and
some other popular quarters the
Hlrangor or tourist can pay his So,
or SO a day, including the inevita
able "tipb" to waiters which he must
givo or be miserable, and live, so
far as table dispensation goes, not
nearby as well as at New York hotels
for tho same money. Or one may
Mop at less pretentious inns and be
quite as cotufoitably served for about
half tho money. Or one may take
an apartment and be fairly sorved
there with Hie edibles of his own
cltooBing for $1.C0 to $2 a day.
But I say what will bo generally
verified by those who have lived in
Kuropo any considerable time that
Hrfet-class American hotel-keeping is
tho best in the world, and cheaper
too, than obtains elsewhere for any
thing to compare with our over-supplied
and what appears to muny plain
peoplo prodigally wasteful tables.

but toggled under a screw-bolt fastened
dead wood, and hinged above so as to
accommodate the span of hoist. The
limbers are nor. cut away for water runs,
our limbers are lu the keel. We have
also a solid wide Iron plate on the Keel
nnd stems of the bout which have fcccur
ed for these boats their well deserved
I'tputatioti for superior build. The
model also compares favorably with
our best imported boat -, carrying
their width on the thwart, and
not on tbe gunwale as crank boats do.
t king all the chafe and pounding
against wssels and whaif, when dis
charging. Our bent Oak knees also
carry out tbe requirements of tho oldest
and most experienced association known
who for 70 years have (-pared neither
time nor money to piocur the bcslMirf
and life boats, wherever found, liming
the tot of 1881, flexibility in boats, was
found to be most t ssential. Tbe rela ion
these knees bear to the jollities section
timbers and to the boat herself when se
verely struck, to prevent a damaging
concussion or any damage, can be read
ily seen. This quality cannot be found
in boats stilly held in one place, nnd
loose in another. Several naval Cap
tains and Ollleers who have inspected
this system pronounce it a great im
prove'ment over tbe old, as a preventive
from being stove in or bilged alongside
when being lowered at sea, as many
have been known to do the short floors
and limber ends lifting from tbe keel. ,
An other improvement, is that we sell
these boats for S0 less than was form
erly paid for this size boat here, and
it pays the builder and buyer better.
We have on band two 21 feet freight
boats, price $230 to $230.

Also our model yacht center board
sloop "Reform" all complete for pleas
ure or fishing, with books, lines, water
kegs, oars and rowlocks, anchor and
chains, extra sails, an oil stove, and a
little flat boat, that can be carried on
deck. This is a speedy little craft, and ,
works second to none in our wateis.
Hie was built for pleasure with safety,
to sail on her bottom, without packing
around tons of ballast. Can be rigged
and sail made hi 15 minutes, aud uniig
ged in live. Price 275.
We are also prepared to give plans
and estimates of all kinds of scows,
rowing surf or sail boats, steam laun
ches, or schooners, in solid, bent frame,
or diagonal building. Our 'experience
in tbe latter mode dates from 1854, when
the celebrated yachts ''hox" and others
were built in that way, this vessel was
(evercly tried in the Arctic for 3 years
under Sir J. McCliutock, when in
search of Sir John Franklin. This mode
of building is highly recommended
where inside finish and capacity is an
object. Wc invite inspection of our
boats at Iho Enterprise Planing Mill,
where samples may be found.
