Sarsaparilla, is like unto that of
many thousands of others. Ho
"It Is with very much pleasure
that I testify to the great benefit I
received from uslnp your wonderful
blood-purifier. ,1 was a sufferer for
years from indigestion, loss of
strength and appetite, and constipa
tion. My whole system seemed to
be thoroughly out of order. A friend
finally told me to take Aycr's,Arsa
parilla. I followed his advicethough
feeling discouraged at the fruitless
Tesults of other treatment, and I am
thankful to state that a few bottles
completely cured me."

Tho Japaneso mail liuer Saga
mi Muru has just brought 217
Japanese laborers to Queensland,
who nro to work on tho sugar
plantations, under a threo-yoare,
contraot, according to a reoont
Australian Star. It is alleged
that these laborers are merely
taking tho placo of other Japa
nese whose term has expired, and
who are returning to their native
laud. Obviously tho "treaty" be
tween the Japanoso Government
and that of Queensland is hang
ing fire. It is the exclusion of the
laborer and the artisan that
Queensland avowedly has in view,
and just at tho time when the
negotiations are pending 217
Japanese laborers are dumped
down in Townsville to remain on
Queensland soil for three years,
for once in Queensland the colo
ny has no power to deport them.
Queensland refused to support tho
Colored Races Restriction Bill on
the ground that the Imperial Gov
ernment would refuse assent to
the measure In that tho Queens
land forecast is apparently ful
filled, for the ominous silence re
garding the bill is ample evidence
that the Roynl apsent nan hpen do
nicd it. But Queensland's special
arrangement with Japan does not
seem destined to any greater
measure of success. It is,
indeed, questionable whether
Queensland has any right to mako
a treaty with a foreign Power out
side the Imperial Government. A
right denied to tho Transvaal,
which owns merely nominal
suzerainty to Great Britain, it
seems certain cannot bo reason
ably claimed by a British colony.
Thero is, however, good reason for
believing that tbo Queensland
Government is not too anxious to
exeludo the Japanese laborer.
Taken all ronnd he is a lot bettor
than the kanaka, and tho sugar
interests in the northern colouy
will assuredly make the biggest of
fights before agreeing to tho ex
clusion of colored labor. With
the mask off, Queensland's cold
ness to federation probably has
its source in the sugai planter's
fondness for cheap colored labor.
Discussing the prospects of Ha
waiian annexation to tho United
States the same paper givos vent
to its fears that Australia will
soon be in the same fix with Japan
that Hawaii now is. It says:
"Tho dispute botweou America
and Japan concerning Hawaii is
assuming a more acute phuso.
Tho off-handed American method
of Bottling the difficulty by an
nexing Hawaii to the United
States does not find favor with
Japan. This is quite natural, for
Hawaii, nnder the Stars and
Stripes, would be fenced about by
the rigoum-t uuli-ulifu laws of
the Republic, and tho Japanese
would be exoluded, or admitted
only undor heavy and almost
restrictive penalties. Japan is
obviously growing restive undor

From a woll-iiifniinod Japanese

immigration controversy to arbi
tration. Tho informant had rea

King Leopold of Belgium.

that ho had received a letter from
Japan to the same effect. Thus

It is further lcarnod, however,
that the acceptance of arbitration
is of n left handed nature. It
involves practically tho surrender
of tho most salient points of Ha
waii's case. Japan, if rumor is
correct, insists upon regarding
tho immigration laws of Hawaii
as derogatory to tho treaty and
the labor convention.

Gonoral Smith woro seen, but
could not divulge tho nature of
the communication until after it

When a Chiuco employed nt
J. S. Martin's tailoring sliop ou
Fort streot opouod tho roar door
this morning, he noticed that the
bar of one of tho iron shutters
was hanging down, and ou goiug
into the room on the opposito
side found a tablo upside down
and a number of books and pa
pers scatterod ubout. Ho at once
notified the proprietor, who in.
turn notified the police.
Detective Kaapa was soon on
the spot and an investigation
mado. It was found that admit
tance had been gained by shaking
tho iron shutters and gradually
loosening tho iron cioes bar,
which finally felrdown, allowing
the shutters to be pulled open.En
trance having been gained to the
store the burglar evidently knew
what he was about, for ho went to
the table used by Mr. Martin as a
desk and turned it upsido down,
leaving the bottom of tho drawer
turned up. With a knife or chisel
he split out about two inches of
the bottom clear across and ab
stracted a sum of money which
had been left there, said to be
between two and three hundred
dollars. Nothing elso wou iwiioLuJ
in tho store, aud anotlior table
used by H. W. Green, the collec
tor of the People's Ice Company,
who makes his headquarters in the
same room, was not even tampered
with. In the drawer of Mr,
Green's table wero threo bank
books and othor valuable papers,
but the burglar evidently kuew
that Mr. Green nevor left -any
money in the drawer.
Acting ou the advice of Detec
tive Kaapa Mr. Mai tin is some
what reticent ovor his loss.
Like Mr. Greon ho is not
iu the habit of leaving
much money iu his drawer over
night, and explains hiB careless
ness in doing so last night by tbo
fact that most of it was received
yesterday, and as he intondod to
send some money to the Coast by
today's steamer bo thought it
hardly worth whilo to bank it for
Buch a short timo.
Detective Kaapa said after com
pleting his examination that the
man who stole the money was ono
who was iutimato with tho place
and know exactly whero the pro
prietor was in the habit of keep-.
ing his money in tho daytime.
The fact that ho took the money
without touchiug anything else
would almost look as if ho know
exactly what ho was going after.
"It was no Chinaman or native
bungler who did this work," said
tho detectivo, and Mr. Martin
ngrcos with him.
