by the corporation to exorcise
the powers it possessed. It might
and probably hIiouIiI hate passed
bylaws preventing, heavy truffle
beyond tho capacity of the bridge.
Its omitted dutio. in that regard,
however, come within the scope of
tho immunity for uoufeisance,anl
neglect to use its powers is
not misfeasance. The Chief Justice
found he had no power to grout a
new trial, for which the plaintiff
would have to go to the Court of
Appeal. As no account of the
proceedings, other than a brief
summary of tho judgment, is at
hand, it is to be presumed that
the-jury failed to find whether
by inadvertence or otherwise
that tho corporation's duty was to
' keep tho bridge strong enough for
its visible and easily calculable
truflic. At any rate, it will be
hard if tho law cannot fiud any
shoulders on which to place the
responsibility for such an awful
sacrifice of human life as took
place in that disaster.
.When the mail news of the
Uullktin woe compiled yester
day, the San Francisco Bulletin,
evening, of August 5 had not
been seen. It contained tho fol
lowing paragraph, at the head of
tho other news relating to the
Japanese controversy which was
reprinted in this paper from the
San Frauoisco morniug papers of
tho biuno date:
Yokohama, August .". It is
hf, , serni-oftioially stated that tho
Japanese government has an-
nouncod that Belgium bo selected
to act us arbitrator in the ques
tions in diuputo botweou Hawaii
m and the Japanese government.
Probably the Kiug of Belgium
t will be the nominal arbitrator if
p.v Japan's proposition be accepted.

Washington, July 28. Public
men in Washington wore general
ly surprised whnu the aunouuca
mont was made in the cable de
spaich received a few days since
that the question of tho Claytou
Bulwortreatyhad been raised iu the
British Parliament in connection
with tho propoaal to annex the
Hawaiian Islands to tho United
States, and were consequently
prepared for the responses of the
British Government that tbo one
question was not involved iu the
other. The matter is regarded.
here with all the greater interest
because both subjects, the validity
of the treaty and the annexation
of Hawaii, aro under considera
tion by the American Congress
and both, in all probability, will
receive attention during the next
session. The Senate Committee
ou Foieigu .Relations, which has
already reported upon the annex
ation treaty, has undertaken au
investigation of the present status
of tho Clayton Bulnor convention,
and tho general expectation, ou
account of tho predictions of the
members of the sub committee
having the question in charge, is
that a report will be made favor
able to the abrogation of the
treaty. There is also a large ele
ment in the Senato which regards
the treaty as obnoxious to the
Monroe Dootrine. Others look
upon it as liable in an indirect
way to have, turough its referouoe
to the Nicaragua canal, a bearing
upon tho Hawaiian questiou. Ouu
of the points in doubt on the part
of the committee is how tho treaty
is regarded by the British Gov
ernment. It appears that whilo
England has generally noted in
Central American affairs as she
would havo beeu expected to act
if thfjro hud beeu no Ueaty, tho
English authorities havo never
given expression to any official
sentiment as to the continued
effect of tho agreement made bo
tween Secretary Clayton and Sir
