LATE FOREIGN NEWS.
Every mail brings something fresh
about Emperor William's alleged
imperious ways. Tlio statements of
fact and comments are not always
consistent. Here is one despatch
from Merlin representing the Em
peror as giving wiry to the will of
the majority on the advice of his
Prime Minister, in tho mattor of a
proposed international exhibition,
while right after is quoted a radical
paper's protest against tlio Emperor's
swaying of all important affairs of
In tho debate on tho motion of
want of confidence in the British
House of Commons, tho Govern
ment strenuously contended that it
was unprecedented for Mr. Glad
stone to seek its overt how without
declaring tho policy of tho succeed
ing Ministry-. Mr. Gladstone went
back to 1811 for a precedent, but
was told in reply that there had
been a full discussion .nt that time
of the opposition's policy. It would
go hard with tho Hawaiian opposi
tion to-day to bo compelled to de
clare its policy.
A Native is Fired Upon by a Whito
Man at Capo Horn.
A pistol shot was heard in the
vicinity of Capo Horn, noar Smith
street, about 51:30 o'clock this morn
ing, and presently Kamaka, a police
man, saw a white man running away.
He gave chase and caught him. Two
natives, Naiwi and another, appeared
on the scene and stated that the
white man had fired at Naiwi.
It appears thai John Duane, a
white man, went to Cape Horn with
the intention of seeing a girl, lie
shook Naiwi's gate and called out to
Naiwi, who had just got up and was
sitting ou the veranda, as is custom
ary with elderly natives, smoking a
pipe, to open the gate. Naiwi sang
out for him to go away and not
bother people at that time of tho
morning. Duane persisted in shak
ing the gate and otherwise trying to
force it open. Seeing that ho had
no chanco of getting in ho backed
out in the middle of the road, took a
pistol from his pocket, fired one
shot and lied. John Duane was ex
amined at tho Police Station by
Captain llobiirt Parker, who was on
watch, when tho pistol with olio
chamber empty was captured.
In the Police Court this morning
Duane stated that he went to tho
place to see a girl and was driven
away. Pulling a handkerchief out

The measure reported on favorably
by the Committee on Public Lands,
to provide for compelling uniformity
of construction in Honolulu's side
walks, cannot be opposed on tho
ground that a law of the kind is not
needed. Some of tho sidewalks on
important streets are, for long dis
tances, most wearying and wearing
to walk on. They are unsightly, un
even, unsaie. JSiVon tno goou siono
pavements in front of some of tho
nower buildings are out of lino with
abutting sections in either direction.
This is becauso thero either was not
a proper lino prescribed by tho Gov

Hon. J. M. Horner has a bill be
fore the House "to regulate the
hours of employment of Government
employees." It adds an hour in tho
forenoon and half an hour in tho
afternoon to the tale of work of all
employees in Government offices.
There has never boon any public de
mand for such a measure. Presuming
thai each oflico has a fair average
strength of staff for transacting tho
business in tho present hours, it
might bo thought that to increase
tho hours of work would enable a
decrease to bo niado in the number
of employees. This does not follow,
howovor, for dull times succeed
brisk times in the civil service as well
as on plantations, and clerks that
have to work after hours sometimes
will bo found again chewing tho
ends of their pencils in oliico hours
for want of something else to do.
Tho great rush of work in all public
offices hero, excepting tlio Post Of
fice that has no limit of hours, is
from nine in tho morning till about
two in tho afternoon, so that there
does not seem to bo much if any
thing to gain by strotching tho
hours each end. If they could bo
stretched a little in tho middle it
would doubtless bo a groat public

Tlio Bulletin could never in i
history have been blamed for lack of
courtesy to an-of tho religious de
nominations or organizations, or
with showing any partiality for ono"
over any other or all others. It has
invariably published their notices of

much space to tho reporting of their

short, this has boon a strictly secular
paper with friendship to all denomi

Emperor William has decisively
squelched t lie proposed Berlin inter

all official support from the scheme
on the advice of Von Caprivi. In
this instance the Uniperor, who per

is now attributed to his having in

This article faithfully reflects tho
feeling which porvades all classes.
Though the energy and good inten

discontent with his imperious inter
meddling prevails everywhere. Tho
instability of public affairs, the con

and his uncertain policy havo aroused
a general longing for a linn hand
and unswerving methods, even if
they aro sometimes aggressive, as
