But ettablishtd for the benefit of all.
FKIDAY, AUG. 9,-1889.
The North American Salt Com
pany has filed articles of incorpor
ation under the laws of New Yoik,
with a capital of eleven millic n
dollars. This is a trust that should
find it hard to "salt" the public,
when the latter have two oceans to
go to for a supply of the article.
Arthur 'J. McQuade, the New
York alderman convicted of bribery
in 1885 and who was for months
confined in Sing Sing, having pro
cured a new trial and the venue
changed to Ballston, has just been
acquitted by a jury at the latter
place. This is the first acquittal in
the famous boodle cases, and shows
that the way of the public prose
cutor, when he pursues prominent
transgressors, is hard in New York.
Idaho's constitutions! convention
rejected the propositions for a secret
ballot and an educational franchise.
The convention was what would be
called "missionary" in Honolulu, as
..one Prefley was severely sat upon
,. when he proposed to prevent the1
payment of funds to religious insti
tutions or for chaplains of legisla
tures, classing religious services as
"coming down from barbarous
times." The same member made a
futjlc attempt to have struct out of
the preamble the words, "gratelul
to Almighty God."
There is an impression . ahroad
that the British cruiser Kspieglc,
that left here Intelj under sealed
orders, has gone to annex Tonga, or
the Friendly Islands, to theKmpire.
The fact that(news was recently re
ceived of the death of the Heir
Apparent of Tonga, King Gcorgo
being very old, lends color to the
surmise. Any objection to the
theory on the ground that Tonga is
''within the jurisdiction of the Aus-
""tralian uaval station, may be an-
"anrered by recalling the fact that the
Hyacinth received orders while
Htationcd here from the Admiralty
to annex the Cook group which she
did last year.
Japan has been making herself
wcllknown for some time through
the policy of employing foreign in
structors in the arts of both peace
and war, and sending promising
. young men ahroad for special educa
tion. It is strange, however, to
hear of one English-speaking coun
try applying to tho Government of
t another,for a special instructor. Last
year the Queensland, Australia,
Government applied to the United
States Department of Agriculture
for the nomination of a suitable
person to be appointed as instructor
in agriculture, .Secretary Husk has
just nominated Pi of. Edward M.
. Sheltou of Manhattan, Kansas, to

year's revenue was 1,053,01)4, and
there was a surplus of 77,709. At
least 52,000 had been paid from
ordinary revenue for purposes hith

50,000 of debt cleared off. The
estimated ordinary expenditure this
year is 4, 117,1131, of which tho large
sum of 1,013,205 Is for interest.
The Auckland Herald says the II-
uauuial statement made to the Legis
lature made by the Premier, Sir II.
Atkinson, "has been well received,
and it will substantially pass un
challenged." Sir Julius Vogel's
party had their own way so long in

MORE ORGAN GRINDING.
The Advertiser writers ought to
read ailieles in other papers before
writing about them. The Bulletin
never said lhat "the present Cabi
net is certain to be overturned at
the coming election." Quote the
passage lef erred to in full, and an
entirely diffcient meaning will be
evident. As there is no hope of the
Advertiser correcting its own misre
presentations, we here repeat the
words upon which it has made its
misstatement: "The Reform Gov
ernment, judging by long cuirent
talk not only aipong its outspoken
opponents from the start but among
many who believed in the original
Reform Party's policy, only considci
such has not neon failhiully carried
out was certain of being upset at
the near approaching general elec
tion. Indeed, with a good alterna
tive Cabinet to propose, a platform
wisely dr:wn, and reputable stand
ard bearers on the part of the Oppo
sition, it would have been an un
common triumph of constitutional
politics if the Ministry should sur
vive the general elections."
Now, anybody with an ounce ol
brains would have perceived that
the whole article bore upon the overt
action of an extreme faction of the
Opposition. Their outbreak was
therefore viewed from the stand
point of themselves and of the loyal
bections of their party. The cer
tainty of the Government's defeat
at the polls was piemiscd upon the
reliance to be placed upon "long
current talk" in lircles dissatisfied
witli and opposed to the Ministry.
Has the Advertiser the hardihood to
bay that scores of those who helped
to create the Reform Party, as well
as those who have always been its
inveterate enemies, have not openly
declared their belief in a way to
show the wisli father to the thought
that 1890 would wind up the
career of the present Ministry? The
assertion quoted above, that, with
the conditions stated, it would be
an "uncommon triumph of constitu
tional politics" if the Ministry sur
vived the election, cannot be gain
said. The popular disposition to
desire a change, added to the un
satisfied hopes of many previous
followeis, has to be overcome by
constitutional Ministries in every
countrj. Moreover, the second
sentence quoted above shows thai
the previous one only cited other
people's opinions. It was not said
er implied that the conditions men
tioned were at all likely to be fill
filled by the OppOHitiou if it was to
be led by such men as Wilcox, Hush,
Poepoe, ct at. And those condi
tions, let us tell the hide-hound and
mcicenarj' Advertiser, are the only
ones under which tho Bn.i.KTiN
would be reconciled to a change of
administration namely, that those
who would cut short the tenure of the
present Ministry should have "a
good alternative Cabinet to propose,
a platform wisely drawn and reput
able standard hearers."
At the same time, we hope tho
Government will be aide to assure
the electorate of its intention and
ability to do better in the future
than in some respects it has done in
the pant. There have been faults
aud shortcomings for which it has
been Bcvctely criticised by many of
the best friends of icfonn and not
meiely by leaelionHtsas the Adver
tiser suggests. Indeed, the Gov
ernment has of late altered its policy

The extract from the Commercial
News given in yesterday's issue
showed a belief in New York that
the tiust was storing sugar to corner
the maikel. This idea is repeated
in a New Yoik despatch of ( July 19
as tin! opinion then prevailing on
the Stock Exchange, but the follow
ing interesting paragraphs are
On the other hand, WalNstrcet
sugar brokers hold that the trust
has stored sugar because there is no
mai ket for it. Prices have struck
bottom, and the refiners can luidize
no profit on their manufactures. It
has been suggested that possibly
the: sugar has been accumulated to
undermine Claus Spreckels when he
got his Philadelphia beet product
refinery in operation; that it was
the intention to swamp the market
with sugar at a low price as soon as
Spreckels turned out his first cargo.
In answer to this theory a mem
ber of one of the most prominent
sugar c nicerns on Wall street, but
with no affiliations with the trust,
mid to-day: "Whatever the object
of stoiing this sugar is, it is almost
certain that Spreckels has a hand
in it. His alleged enmity to the
triHt is all moonshine. No one on
the inside supposes for an instant
that he is going to light a corpora
tion of 850,000,000. He is with the
trust hand and glove. He is too
