Development of friendly feeling
toward American merchants iimoujz
tho British colonies as a result of
tbo late war, is a feature that will
not bo regarded by British mer
chants as an altogether favorable
result. The changes that are tnk
ing placo are not solely diploma
tic. An Amoricau returning from
Australia says that tho prejudico
against Americans is fast being re
legated to history and tho Americ
an salesman is received with more
cordiality. British tradesman note
tho changes that aro taking place
as is evidenced by tho British
Trade Roviow in an articlo on
"Tho Maritime Policy of the Unit
ed States" reiterating and calling
special atteution to a suggestion
made in a previous issue: " Our
duty is to observe carefully tht
forces which aro at woik and the
changes which are beinir produced,
so that we may prepare ourselves
for tho altered circumstances.
This is the condition not only of
progress, but even of existence."
Discussion of the peace treaty
and the expansion policy of the
United States, has brought out two
interesting features in connection
with tho obligations of a United
States Senator. Senator Perkins
of California declared himself as
opposed to expansion, but made
tho reservation that ho would vote
on tho question ae directed by the
legislature of his Btate.
Senator Halo of Maine went be
fore tbo etato legislature this yeat
for re-election, Ho is a strong and
open opponent of the expansion
idea. The legislature of tho stale
is almost unanimously in favor
of tho MoKinloy expansion policy.
This was evidonced particularly
whon Hale made his speech bofore
tho Republican caucus. In Una
speech ho gave his opinions on
expansion, stating that he could
not ondoreo tho policy. His
words were received without de
monstration until ho made refer
once to Senator Fryo, one of tho
particular champions of tho ox
tension of American power in the
Pacific, whon the caucus cheor-
ed for Bovoral minutes.
But this same caucus that
cheered for Senator Fryo and ox
pansion, unanimously nominated
Senator Halo and elected him,
though whon tho final voto was
takon several legislators withdrew
and otbors Btatod that they voted
' for tho "nominee of tho caucus."
Notwithstanding tho events con
nected with thoNMaino Senator's
reflection, notwithstanding bis
opposition to tho sentiment of
tho party in his State, Senator
Halo's attitude as to tho duty of a
Uuited States Senator meets with
moro general appioval than does
that of Senator Perkins. Tho
peoplo aro disposed to rogaid with
more admiration the opou and de
clared oppouont than ono who
stutters in his lines and nsks to bo
l'lie Halo incident also brines
into prominence tho Bocalled party
whip. Tho party interests of the
slate demanded that a ropresonta
tivo of tho party loyal to the gen
cral ptrty principles, loyal to tho
interests of the State, experienced
iu national affairs and of unques
tioned integrity should not bo
turned down. Had thore been no
party management, no recognition
of party rule, tho RopublicanB of
the legislature would probably have
divided iu sixes and sevens and
iudulgod in a tight fraught with
disastrous results to tho
party organization. Senator
Halo himself rocognized tho
power and obligations of party
rulo wheu he stated in his speech
that Bhould the Uuited States
Senate docide favorably toward
the expansion policy, ho would
accept tho mandate of tho majori
ty, and onlist his faithful effort to
make tho new national policy all
that its advocates hope for it.

New York, January 19. Dr
Frederick Strange Eollo contribu
tes to the "Electrical Enginoer a
description of a new process de
scribed by him whioh overoomes
the cost and labor of composition,
reduces the time necessary to re
produce copies, and ib of such a
nature that the operator may bo
kept in completo ignorance of tho
contonts of tbo document. This
uiinht make the process valuable
in tho diplomatic and seoret ser
vices of the Government. An
opaque fluid ink is used for writ
ten documents and a eomi-tluid
mixture for typework. Tho copy
iB clamped down over tho sensit
ized paper iu blocks of 100 sheets,
called senso-blocke, and is ex
posed to the rays. Then the
sheets aro developed as needed.
Kollo eays that twenty senso
blocks may be exposed around
each tube simultaneously. This
would mako it possible to print
GOOO copies a minuto for eaoh
tube used. He says that ten men,
working eight hours a day, could
print 7,500,000 copies and de
velop, fix, wash and dry them.

Captain Barker was not aboard

unteered tho following: "This is

courso a reason for this. Captain
Barker spent tbo happiest mo

Speakinc of tho Iris yesterday,
one of tho officers romarkod that
Chief Enginoer Little, well known
in Honolulu, is on that water dis
tilling steamer. His friends in
Honolulu will certninly bo glad to
soo him back.
While very oloso to Hawaii nei,
tho Orooon had ono of her largest
boats smashed. It is understood
that there is groat danger of this
if tho boats ore not taken toward
tho center of tho ship.
Tho reason why the Oregon
did not enter port," said tho oflicor
of the deck, "is tuat thore is not
enough room iu thcro for us. Our
ship draws 27 feet of water, and
as thero is a continuous stream of
water passing through tho ship all
the while for tbo condensers, you
can readily see, there might very
soon bo disaster."
"Now that you aro in tho ward
room, I want to show you ecuno

tho fight, aro still with the ship.
This also applies to tho officers, of
whom there aro twelve, lhero
aro only four odicors aboard who
made the famous trip around tho
Horn to Key Wost."
The Oregon is nothing moro
than a floating fort. Ono cannot
tako a stop without running into
some cannon or rapid firing gun.
In answer to a question, one of
tbo officers answered: "Tho eight
inch guns are the ones that did
tho greatest damage at Santiago.
Our big guns had the required
moral effect on the Spaniards, but
tho eight inch onos did the tear
ing'up." It was learned yesterday that
tho Oregon would be hero for a
week yet and, very probably, more.
