BETHEL : STREET,
i a 151 rn2
(Tho Japan Times, Wednesday,
July 12.) The notifications issued
by H. E. tho American Minister
to his nationals in Japan, rolativo
to the oporation of tho now treaty
between the two countries, is high
ly gratifying to tho Japanese peo
ple. After referring, among other
things, to tho rocont Imperial Re
script and the various Depart
mental Notifications inculcating
upon Japanoae subjects tho duty
of extending a friendly treatmont
to foreigners under the new treaty
arrangement, Ilia Kxcollonoy pro
claims as follows:
"In liko spirit attention ia call
ed to tho duty which, I trust, will
bo tho plpa9iire of all citizens of
tho United States, uudor no oir
cutustances to givo any causo of
complaint either to Qovornment
officials or other Japanoso sub
jeel?. In thoir relations with the
peoplo of this country thoy should
tit all limol), by thoir dvmoauor
and by thoir ovory act, show such
Bontiinents of regard for those
with whom thoy will necessarily
bo associated and for all laws, re
gulations, and customs, ni will de
monstrate that reciprocal friend-
ship reasonably oxpected of thorn
in response to the kind, consi
derate, and just treatment onjoin-
od on all Japancso subjects by
LIU Imperial Majesty and by tho
high omcials o( tbe Uovorumont
The American Minister's notion
in addressing theso words of cau
tion to tho citizens of the Union
in Japan, will be warmly appreci
ated by our countrymen, not be
cause thero is any apprehension
of lawless or discourteous conduct
ou tho part of thoao to whom thoy
aro addressed, but hecanso of that
spirit of gonuino friendship from
which thoy omnuate, and whioh
invariably prompted the gieat
tranB-Pacifio Republic in hordoal
mgs with this country over einco
Bhe first introduced up to the last
ing benefits of a now and broador
civilization nearly half a century
ago. In no respect has this friend
ftliip beon more signally and con
sistently displayed by her than in
connection with the question of
treaty rovision a question whioh
of all others has ongagod
during the past twenty
years tho keenost attention of
this nation. It is gratefully ro
membcred by us all that America
was tho first of all tho troaty
Powors to rocognize the justice of
our aspiration and to givo a prac
tical shapo to tLmt recognition.
Hor disinterested auc! friondly at
titude on this question, is all tho
more gratifying in viow of tho
fact that all tho whilo she had in
this country largo nud ovor in
creasing interofltH to look aftor.
The Brat to befriend us in tho
matter of troaty rovisiqu, it is but
bpfitting that tho United Stntos ot
Amorica should havo nlso been tho
fiifit to givo a publicum! official
response in so hoarty a manner to
the extreme solioitudo with which

A volunteor in the Fourteenth
Infantry writesuto Mrs. Q. H
Berry of this city, tho following
interesting account of war in tho
Philippines undor dote of June
Letters came to mo on tho field
of battlo juBt after the most des
perato battlo that has boen fought
hore so far. Wo had just gained
a great victory ovor the insurgents
at tho Zapote river and wero rcet-
ing after 10 hours hard fighting
whon a man Ccuno out from tho
city 18 miles away and brought
me two letters.
Reading theso totters seemed
liko reading a mossago from an
othor world for thoy spoke of
peaco wbilo all around mo were
strown tho manglod boJios of
thoso who opp )3od our advance.
Wounded mou were limping and
orawliug away, and the gory grimo
of blood dyed tho earth red. All
around utter bearers woro going
about searching for our own doad
and wounded. Hugo trees Jay
felled to tho oarth by bursting
shells, and the smouldering ruin
of many houses told tho story of
tho terrible fight in which wo
were tho victors, but we lost MO
killed and wounded, whilo the in
surants loHd was 275 killod whom
wo buried; l'JO taken prisoners,
and 30 woundod whom they car
ried oil wl-Hu thoy retreated. We
alao captured 300 rifles' nud ono
largo 8-inch caunon.
War is an awful ovil for it
makes' ueaits out of intelligent
mon. A soldier boss a comrade
fall and ho thirsts for tho blood of
his enomy. Ho turnB a deaf ear
to tho groans and shrieks of his
dyiug enemies. Ho stalks among
his own doad and woundod com
rades without displaying a trace of
pity. He gazes upon his dead
onemies and laughs to aeo bo
He lies down at night to bIooi)
iu tho mud and rain, and gets up
in tho morning covered with mud
and slime, and marches all day
without anything to cat but hard
tack and coffee. The heat being
very tierce, he eoes huudreds of
his comrades fall exhauBtod to tin
earth, and pitoously moan for
wator; but ho pausos not, for soon'
the roar ot battle is on, and he
rushes forward oager to soe tho
blood of bis enemies flowing froo
ly. A Mauser bullet piorcoi his
brain, and all that is known is
that "Privato Jones, Oo. --, killed
in action, Juno 13."
Such ia war. I road the de
lightful lottors, and again all wns
peaco; i.'in birds were singing thoir
sweetost songs, and all nature was
srailinc in harmony with art, and
onco anain I wSfl basking iu tho
warm snushiuo ot dear old Yir
cinia. But tho lottors raruo to nn
end, and I awoke to find .myself
here sitting on the body of a dost!
Wo started off Juno 9 to fighf
the insurgents, and einco thattimo
havo boen in six ongagomonts,
captured six cities, and we aro
now at Yiiiub, about 25 milca
south of Manila. I do not know
how long it will be bo f oro wo get
back to tho Quartel. Wo oxpect
to be discharged soon, as wo aro
eutitlfd to our disoharge: and if
Goneral Otis doos tho right thing
by us wo should bo disoharced bv
the 1st of July.

Tho report of tho Trustees of
tho Bishop Estate for the-yetu
ending Juno 30 this year shows.
Tho total roceipts from all
sources during tho year including
cash on hand on tho first day ot
July, 18S18, amounted to 83-15,-80.80,
and tho total amount of
oxponditure on ovory account was
$341,205.95, leaving a balance on
hand of $1051. So.
Iu ro the matter of selling lands
the Supromo Court has hold that
the trustees in tho exercise of n
sound discretion as to tho best in
torost of tho estate may sell lands
without application to a Court of
Equity so to do.
By tho death of Auhoa (w) and
Princoss Kniulani, devisees un
dor tho will of Bernico P.
Bishop, tho lands devised to
thorn for a lifo estate have
reverted to the control of tho
trustees. Tbo land is a lot on
L'unchbowl street to Auhoa and
land and spring known as Knni
wai, Waikiki uka to PrincesB Ka
iulani. Tho constantly increasing inter-
osts of tho estate with regards
lands controlled has necessitated
the employment of a competont
porson to take ohargo of tho laud
dopartraent and the serviced of
Mr. U. o Uodgo, lor many years
nrominent in the govornraont aur

during the past year havo adopted
a rental system based upon a per
