W. 0. SMITH'S ARTICLE.
An article in tho "Mniic Wreath"
by Hon. AV. O. Smith, and repro
duced' in the "P. C. Advertiser, "
contains some sensible thoughts in
relation to the disease which consti
tutes the national calamity. The
author's object is to suggest the
idea of medical conventions. He is
of opinion that if the physicians who
are and have been, within the past
quarter of a century, practising
their profession on these islands,had
had an organisation by which they
were occasionally brought together,
for the interchange of opinions and
experiences in regard to the dreadful
malady, ercateratlvanccs would pro
bably have been made in knowledge
and treatment. No one can gainsay
this. Mr. Smith evidently docs not
endorse the incurability dogma.
Neither do we. It is simply absurd,
in view of the fact that the world is
constantly discovering what previous
agus had considered impossible, to
say that failures to discover a rem
edy in the past is proof that no rem
A REMARKABLE FACT.
Editor Bulletin: I wish to put
on record a remarkable fact. While
I was walkiug up Fort stieet yester
day, a public passenger express was
coming down at a moderate pace.
On seeing me the driver reined in
his horse and brought him to a walk,
allowing me to get quietly and safely
out of the way. Such an act is
worthy of record and commenda
tion: it is so unusual. Most
drivers, whether of public convey
ances or private carriages, rush
along at a furious pace, and care
nothing for pedestrians. They,
(the vehicles) have the right of way,
and people on foot must look out
for necks and limbs. It is refresh
ing to find someone who respects the
rights and lives of others.
THE HACK INSPECTOR.
pEditok Bulletin: The "Adver
0 tiser" states this morning that S.
Macy, the hack inspector, is going
to take a two months' vacation.
What has ho done that he should'
have such a long vacation? Is there
a stipulation in hiscqmmission to that
effect and does his salary go on just
the same? Judging from the largo
number of cases of fast driving mid
tho runaways of late, it looks as if
tho hack inspector had not been at
tending to his work in a proper man
ner. Resting in the corridors of the
Police Court is not what he is paid
for. In my opinion a hack inspector
should bo for the most part of his
time on patrol. Then porhnps there
might not bo so many carriage acci
dents. It is all very well for a
Minister to take a two months vaca-
tion, but one week is plenty long
enough for a hack inspector.
fWo aro told that tho gentleman
is not taking two months, but two
weeks only. Ed.

dead beats. According to Delmo-
nico he lost by them in ten years
over fifty thousand dollars. -S. F.
BRITISH PROTECTORATE IN THE
Editor Bum.utin : Referring to
tho brief notice thnt appeared in
your columns u few days ago, an
nouncing the fact that a Hritish
Protectorate had been proclaimed
over tho Ilcivey Gump, it would
perhaps bo interesting to some of
3'our readers who nrc not posted on
the subject, to know that this group
of islands, more generally known ns
tho Cook's Group, is a veiy import
ant one, and comprises the follow
ing islands: Rarotonga, Mangaia,
Aitutaki, Attn, Mnuki, Mitiero, and
Rarotonga, where tho ting was
hoisted by British Vice-Consul Ex
ham on 20th September last, is the
principal island of the group, from
where Quean Makea exercises sov
ereignty over nil the islands above
named. The native population of
Rarotonga nlone is over 2,000, and
of whites, who arc mostly traders,
The trade of the lleivey Group,
which is of very" considerable im
portance, is done chiefly with Auck
land, N. Z., from which port tho
steamer Richmond calls at Raro
tonga once every six weeks. Sev
eral schooners,mostly under the Bri
tish ilagjarcnlsoconstnnthy employed
in the group.
France, for some years past, has
cast covetous eyes on the Cook's
Group, and some thrco yqars ago
sent a man-of-war, the Hugon, Lap-
tain Meynard, to Rarotonga, with
presents to Queen Makea, consisting
of silk dresses and other finery.
The old Queen summoned a meeting
of tho principal chiefs, and after
consideration decided to decline to
accept any presents whatever. They
were therefore returned to the Hu
gon in the Queen's own boats, to
gether, in order to bhow her friendly
attitude towards the French, with
boat-loads of fruit.
Tho Rarotongans are a fine,
manly race of people. The Queen
and many of her pcoplo had more
than once visited Tahiti, where the
French for years have held a Pro
tectorate, which later ended in an
nexation, and, whilst there, con
trasted the abject condition to which
the Tahitiaus had been reduced,
with her own free and happy people.
It is not, therefore, surprising that
she viewed with alarm the French
advances, fearing, doubtless with
much reason, that these presents
and fair speeches, were intended
merely as a blind, with the view of
eventually proclaiming the dreaded
The more recent action of the
French authorities at Tahiti in for
cibly, and with much bloodshed,
annexing the neighboring islands of
Raiatca, Hualnne, and laha, no
doubt largely influenced Queen Ma
kea and her people, in asking of
England, to establish a protector

the mouth of Fiench cannons, to
follow in the footsteps of her Ta
MR. EDISON'S JOKE.
HE rniGHTEN'S A VISITOK OUT 0I"
BED AT THE OUlt 01' MIDNIGHT.
Odd stories are told of doings at
Wizard Edison's home in Orange.
One of the most amusing occur
rences there happened not long since
when a stranger was visiting Mr.
Edison. After an evening largely
devoted to a discussion -of electri
city, the guest went to bed. He
had barely drawn the covers over
him and settled down to sleep, when
a voice, apparently from the clock
on the dressing-case, said, in mea
sured tones; "It is now 11
Tho startled guest threw off the
covers, sat bolt upright, and felt the
hair rising all over his body. Could
he have been dreaming? No ; he
was wide awake. Arising, he turned
on the electric light, searched every
corner of the room, examined the
innocent-looking clock, and finally
called in Mr. Edison. The latter
assured him that there was no one
in the room, and with half-quieted
fears the guest returned to bed.
Half an hour had been consumed
in the vain search for tho origin of
the mysteiious voice, and the guest
passed another half-hour in specu
lating upon the occurrence. Just
as he had persuaded himself that
the sound had been only part of a
dream and was going off into a half
doze, tho same voice, in the samo
measured tone, called out:
"The hour of midnight has ar
med! Prepare to die."
There was no mistake this time,
and the horrified guest, without
waiting to turn on tho electric light,
rushed across to Edison's room.
Tho wizard, broad awake and half
dead with laughter, permitted his
guest to rap threo or four times and
then responded to his call.
"Mr. Edison," said the disturbed
sleeper, "there's something uncanny
about this house. I wouldn't sleep
here all night if you'd give me tho
Edison suppressed his laughter,
heard his guest's story, and then,
going to tho room, showed the
stranger that there was a tiny plion
graph concealed in tho clock and so
set us to give forth its solemn an
nouncement of tho hours. Tho
offending clock was removed and
tho guest slept soundly for tho re
mainder of the night. N. Y. Tele
gram. There aro 1,5GC convicts in tho
Georgia Penitentiary, of which num
ber 203 aro under sentence for life.
Mr. Edison's latest phonograph
has (says tho "Spectat3r") been
fitted ith a sort of speaking-trumpet,
which has rendered it loud
speaking, so that a considerable
group can hear what it says or sings
or plays without the help of n con-ductiug-tubo
to each person's car.
If tho trumpet arrangement for
magnifying the sound should suc
ceed, we do not see why, by tho help
of the phonograph, we might not
some day have luo very snine opcia
or concert, including the greatest
vocalists in the world, performed in
every capital on tho same day with
the same success. Nor, indeed,
why the same sermon might not bo
preached in 50 or 500 pulpits at the
same time, the preacher himself be
ing present in none or only one of
this large number. But whether
this would not be thought "prench
ing by machinery," in spite of the
artistic perfection with which the
phonograph would deliver tho very
tones and tremors of the preacher's
voice, is very questionable.
CREAT MARITIME ROUTES.
The most important of tho great
maritime routes of the world may
be said to bo that opened by M. do
Lcsscps, viz., the Suez Canal, which
places the "West in rapid communi
cation with tho East. England holds
the principal stations upon this
route, viz., Gibraltar, Malta, Cyp
rus, Egypt, and Pcrim. From Aden,
also an English station, tho English
route bifurcates, one leading cast
wards to India and China, tho other
south-eastwards to Australia and
Eastern Africa. The Indian route
conducts travellers in seven days
from Aden to Hc-mba, and in eight
days from Aden to Colombo (Cey
lon). One can go in seven days also
from Colombo to Singapore, and in
eight days further from Singapore
.to the island of Hongkong, where
the English solidly established, keep
an eye upon lue uuineso coasts.
Ceded to England by the Celestial
Empiue in 1842, Hongkong com
mands the entrance to Canton and,
by consequence, controls the com
merce of the southern provinces of
China. Victoria, the port of Hong
kong, which has some time been
styled the Gibraltar of the East, has
a population of 1GO,000 inhabitants,
of whom 8000 are Europeans. Vic
toria is, indeed, the maritime capi
tal of the Chinese Sea. In front of
Hongkong, and upon the continent
of Asia, England secured, in 1800,
the territory of Kouloum, about 20
square miles iii extent. A journey
from Hongkong to tho great Chinese
port of Shanghai occupies about
eight days ; a similar time is con
sumed in going from Hongkong to
Yokohama. English maritime es
tablishments have begun to be
formed in tho Archipelago of Quel
paeit, at the extremity of Corca,
and it is pioposed to create a mili
tary port under the name of Port
Hamilton. If these projects are
carried out, the English route in the
extreme East will probably bo ex
tended to the great Russian port of
Vladivostock, which is considered to
be destined to an important future,
since it is the commercial metropolis
of the Amoor and of Eastern Sibe
ria. In running from Aden to Aus
tralia many vessels make a stoppage
at the end of seven days at Port
Louis, in the Mauritius. The time
occupied in running from the Mauri
tius to Adelaide (South Australia)
is 10 days more. Some 20. days are
occupied in a voyage from Aden to
Batavia, the most important point in
the Dutch possessions in the islands
of Sunda. A voj'nge from Singa
pore to Sydney (New South Wales)
occupied about 20 days. The Cape
of good Hope route to the East has,
of course, declined in importance
since the piercing of the Suez Canal.
The maritime routes of the Pacific
Ocean aro three in number, viz.,
that of Cape Horn, that of Panama
(which will gieatly increase in im
portance if M. de Lcsscps completes
liis second great canal), and, finally
that of ban Francisco, from wlncli
voyages can he made, on the one
hand to Japan and China, and on
tho other hand to Australia. San
Francisco is, beyond doubt, tho
principal Pacific port of North
America. Voyages may be made
from San Francisco to Yokohama in
22 days, to Hongkong in 20 days,
and to Sydney in 23 days. Tho
Sandwich Islands afford a convenient
stopping place between San Fran
cisco nnd Australia. A recently
opened route from Vancouver Island
to Japan and China, connected as it
is by means of the Canadian Pacific
Railway with tho Atlantic Ocean,
may develop serious competition
with tho existing great American
line. Tho existing Capo Horn route
will share tho fate of tho Cape of
Good Hope route, nnd will cease to
be one of the important maritime
routes of tho world should tho
Panama Canal be open for naviga
tion. The great mnritimo routes of
tho Atlantic Ocean, thrco in num
ber, terminate at New York, Pa
nama, and Buenos Ayres. If the
Panama Canal should over sever tho
two Americas, it might be practic
able to make a tour of tho world in
24 days without landing at any
point. A traveller starting from
Liverpool for instance, would tra
verse tho Straits of Gibraltar, tho
Mediterranean, tho Suez Canal, the
Red Sen, tho Indian Ocean, tho
Straits of Malacca, the Pacific
Ocean, the Panama Canal, nud tho
Atlantic Ocean, finally returning to
tho point at which' he set out.
It has been proved nt Hongkong,
Malacca, Gaboon and many other
places thai? a great deal may bo
dono by sanitary art to turn lho
most pestiferous spolB into salubri
ous residence districts. Tho Gov
ernor of Lagos, a celebrated hot-bod
of malaria, writes thai, in his
opinion, the evil reputation of the
place may bo redeemed by oxlensho
planting of eucalyptus, bamboo nnd
other quick-growing trees, which
get rid of the superfluous water in
the soil by rapid evaporation, which,
in turn, tends to cool tho atmos
phere. By this simple liionni Dr.
Bushncll and others so far improved
the climate of Gaboon that white
men havo lived there many years in
good health. A few years ago the
explorer Burton said white men
simply could not live on the Lower
Congo', a fallacy that is now amply
disproved. Stanley once called
Bourn a pest-hole, but sanitary im
provements have done so much for
the place-tile last year about thirty
white men lived there in good
health, and there was not a death
among Europeans during the ' year.
