FH1DAY, MAY 9, 1890.
A gentleman suggests n feasible
arrangement for meeting the re
quirements of the Fire Department
in the distant suburbs. For instance,
at Makikt and Waikiki, at central
points erect small anil inexpensive
structures, for the storage of hose,
instruments for opening hydrants,
etc. Have scrotal kejs to the
structures, entrusted to diffcreut in
dividuals liring near by, so that at
the starting of a flic someone will
be on baud that can gain access to
the necessaiy apparatus for con
quering it in its early stages. Wc
submit the suggestion for consideration.
USEFUL TO MARINERS,
The following telegram has been
rcceied by the Under-Colonial Sec
retary front the Hon. John Douglas,
dated Thursday Island, March 15:
"lleturncd this morning from the
Queltti wreck. The work of the
divers is thus summarised : The
bottom of the ground is uneven, the
water very log ftom 1 'J to 1 1 fathoms
deep. I he bottom of the vessel is
turn and rent fiom right forward
to the engines. Abaft the engines
the plates ate bulged. She lies
right on her buam ends on the
port side head (the divers now
say) east-south-east, and nortli-r.orth-west,
but they had no com
pass. The following are the bear
ings of the Quctta rock, found by
Captain Held: Albany tock, south
I !!() east, North Brother boutli 52

on the most shoal part found."

WHAT A VOTER SAYS. .
ElHTOK Bui.l.l.TIN :
A voter from Ivoolau says, among
the election practices which the Re
form candidate does to obtain the
votes of the people of Koolnu, is to
hire and make use of the powers of
the kahunas (sorcerets).
During this week scveial pigs
weie slaughtered to piopiliate the
favor of the gods for J Ir. Kaulukoti
and co frown upon Mr. Hush and
bur' him in oblivion. Hut I am glad
to stry that missionary hatred and
Hawaiian superstition aic apparently
of no avail against Hush this time.
This ti probably the leprosy or leper
spot of the Hefoim party which
Hush alluded to in his speech at Ka
ncolic. Of the three pigs roasted, one ol
them tinned out half cooked, and
was looked upon with honor by the
candidate and his kahunas as a sure
slmi of defeat. A stone dtnppcd in
a basin of water which should have
floated as a sign of success failed to

A NEW DISCOVERY.
We bac reason to believe that a
discovery of equal unpen lance to
New Testament scholars with that
which gae Codex Alrph to the
world has just been made. The ru
mor ctiucnt in well infoiincd quar
ters credits the new And to Bryen
nios, the learned Archbishop of
Nkodeinia. The completion of the
Epistle of Clement of home and the
unique manuscript of the Teaching
of the Apostles have made him fa
mous for discoveries even in this age
of discord y. But if the minor that
has come to us be true and we
think there are good reasons for be
lieving it to be so his name will be
more closely identified with the New
Testament itself. It is said tiiat in
some Tuikish library at Damascus
he has found a main1 'pt of the
New Testament dalni" I om about
the middle of the font tit century
i. o., of the same antiquity as the
Codex Sinaiticus. Indeed, some ap
piehensions are felt whether it is
not altogether too much like the Si
naitic manuscript to be of the phe
nomenal importance that anothei
totally independent manusciipt of
the same age would be. English
A TROUBLESOME CARGO.
Captain Sargent has just brought
the barque Maigaict safely into
Hoston ftom the West Coast of
Africa, after a remaikable voyage.
Hesides an ordinary cargo, he had
on boat d '100 parrots, n gorilla, an
ourang-outang, twelve snakes, two
crocodiles, and a number of mon
keys j and these animals gave him
more troublu than tlio fearful storms
against which he bad to light. The
ship was swarming with rats, which
devoured the corn provided for the
parrots, all of w bich save four per
ished. Then tlio snakes and cioco
dilcs escaped ftom the hold, and en
tered the forecastle, possession of
which was disputed by the rats.
This war raged fot live days, during
w Inch the sailors weie unable to get to
their bunks and only ended when the
last of the snakes perished in an en
counter w ith the surviving crocodiles,
whose caicer wus cut shoit by some
falling timber. During the war in
the foiecastlo the monkeys escaped
to the rigging, from winch all tlio
effoits of tho sailors could not dis
lodge tlieni. Tho wind and the sea,
however, pioved too strong, and all
sure four were swept overboard. -Ameticau
THE PROPOSED BOUNTY ON SUGAR.
The Chronicle says the only hope
for beet-sugar pioductiou in this
State is that offered by the McKin
ley bill, which offers a bounty of
two cents n pound on all native
sugars. If thts were true we might
say goud-by to the beet-sugar indus
try. This Congress cannot bind the
next one to pay a bounty, and it is
cxtieinely improbable that a system
which selects a single industry ftom
all others and makes it the source
of a tax on other industries can bo
sustained. Farmers who arc raising
com at a small profit will naturally
object to being taxed to help the
beet-sugar producers to meet ex
penses. If wc piotect the beet-sugar
industry by a tax on foreign sugar,
we place that industry in line with
other industries. The piotected in
dustries would naturally stand by
each other, but what interest would
be likely to stand bv an industry
which took money from the public
treasury? Our cotitcmporaty advo
cates free sugar for the teason that
it will put the Hawaiian planters on
an equality with other sugar-planters.
Taken by itself thete is a cei
lain plausibility in the argument,
Luit the fact is well known that the
chief inducement to enter into a
reciprocity treaty with the Hawaiian
Islands wus to maintain Ameiican
commercial ascendancy in those
islands. The treaty in this respect
has been successlul. The islands
have been kept fiom ill if ling into
the bands of another nation. The
Monroe docliine would not permit
the occupation of those islands by
a European power; but if they had
formed the same cnmtncrci.il lega
tions with Great Hi Hani that they
have with the I'tiiud States, an
ugly question would aiise in the
diplomatic horizon. The United
States imports from these islands
about 240,000,000 pounds of sugar.
This is in i oiind numbers one-seventh
of our entile consumption and but
two-thirds of out home pioductiou.
So far the free importation of Ha
waiian sugar has not affected tin
price of sugar in this market. The
amount of the import duty lias been
added to the export price in the
islands, sottn what as the amount of
the duty taken from coffee was
added to the export price of that
article. What the United States
really loses is the reonue that would
be itemed from the 210,000,000
pounds of Hawaiian sugar if the
duty had been retained. The sum
is considerable, but against it wc
have to balance the advantage of
our present close relations with the
islands and of the increased trade
that has grown up under the treaty.
If the present duties on sugai should
be retained and Hawaiian sugar be
admitted free as at present, it is ex
tremely improbable that tltc Hawai
ian planters would give up the hand
some profit they now make in sugar
to crush out the beet-sugar industry
in the Pacific Coast States. S. F.
Call, April 23, 1890.
A new industry has spuing up
latterly, which promises, wc arc told,
profitable results. It is frog taising.
A faun for this put poses at Mena
sha, Wis., is in full opetatton and
stocked with 2,000 females, which
aic capable of producing trotn 000
to 1,000 eggs at a time. The owner
of the farm gives some other inter
esting facts telativc to the frogs'
habits which are not generally
known. He says: in ninety-one
days the eggs hatch. The thirty
ninth day the little animals begin to
have motion. In a few days they
assume the tadpole form. When
ninety-two days old, two small feet
are seen beginning to sprout near
tail, and tho head appears to be
separate from the body. In live
daj s after this they refuse all vege
table food. Soon thereafter the ani
mal assumes a perfect fot m. Next
spiing 23,000, at 20 cents per dozen,
will be my reward. Figure it your
self, bays the enthusiastic frog
farmer, and see it there is any money
in batrachia, alius frogs. Scientific-
