With I.adysmlth lcllevcd aud tho
theater of the war transferred to Boer
territory, tho British army Is now
nbout whero It expected to be nbout
three months ngo. Naturally the Brit
ish nro overjoyed that tho offenslvo
strategy of the Boers at all points has
been overcome and tho war carried
Into the enemy's country. In tho
midst of the victorious cheers rings a
call for more money and more men, an
Indication that neither ltoberts nor
Duller consider tho Boers defeated or
that tho war will bo brought to a
speedy close. The features of tho lato
despatches which may bo regarded ns
tho most serious from the British
standpoint Is the spread of rebellious
spirit among Boers of Capo Colony.
Tho easy road of the Hawaiian bill
In tho Senate may well cause tho peo
ple renewed confidence that Congress
will have settled our affairs by the
first or middle of April. Although
tho measure lias undergone mnrked
changes and wilt probably emerge
from tho House with still more, theso
amendments as a rulo have been in
tho Interest of a strong Amoilcan
control and tho establishment of a
truo American territory. While rho

considered tho Republic of Hawaii un
Improvement on the government of
the United States, t'mlr lu'.iit burn

CHINESE CIVIL WAR.
(Associated Press Special.)
Chicago, March 7. A special to tho
Record from Victoria, B. C, says:
According to Asiatic advices by the
Jitcamcr Empress of India, tho recent
coup d'etat of the Empress Dowager of
China, in which tho Emperor, Kwang
Su, was dethroned and tho six-year-old
son or l'rlne Tuan named as his suc
cessor, bids fair to embroil tho Celes
tial Empire in civil war. At Swn
tow tho Chinese arc already in revolt
and In many other parts of tho Empire
they aro taking up nrms against tho
Empress and tho Manchus. The reform
party which is nt tho head of tho
movement to foment rebellion Is In
receipt of a telegram from Kantc Yu
Wei sent from Singapore, in which ho
says ho can ralso nn array of -10,000.
The China Gazette says the Empress
Dowager nnd her advisers, being afraid
of a revolution In Peking, have applied
to the Russian Government for heh

Now York, March 7. A dispatch to
tho Journal and Advertiser from Odes
sa says: Among tho odlccrs or tho
volunteer fleet of cruisers who recent
ly returned here from tho Far East,
thero Is n strong belief that tho enor
mous garrisons being formed at Port
Arthur, Dalnla nnd Vladlvostock will
bo utilized soon as a cocrclvo lover for
compelling tho Japanese to abandon
their pretensions nnd acquisitions in
Korea. Tho commander of ono of tho
cruisers expresses ills conviction that
beforo tho end of this year Russian In
fluence In tho Far Eastern peninsula
will hnvo become, so absolutely domi
nant that tho .Japanese will feel moral
ly constrained to glvo up tho strugclo
nnd retire fiom tho many Important
enterprises they nro now prosecuting
In Korcn nnd that will open tho wuy
for tho gradual assumption of n Rus
A Juvenile Offender.
Manuel Sylva, n Portuguese lad of
olght, was presented beforo tho bar of
tlio pollco court chnrged with malicious
mischief in pulling up plants In a
yard. Judgo Wilcox looked curiously
over ills spectacles nt the Juvenile cul
prit, for whom n plen of guilty was en
torcd with n request from both Mnrshnl
Brown and Mr. Vivas to dismiss him
with a lecture. "An old slipper in tho
hand of his mother Is probably what
this fellow needs," observed his Hon
or. "That has been applied already,"
answered tho attorney for the defense, I
"Well, he doesn't look as If he has
great difficulty in sotting down," said
tho Court and proceeded to question
tho defendant, who said it wasn't he
that did it, and his mother had licked
him. "Go away," tho Judgo told him,
"and don't do that any raoro;" then
soliloquized, "although he says ho
didn't do it anyway."
SHIPS '10 BE REGISTERED
Washington. March 4. Senator Nel
koii'h attempt to Include In the geuernl
Hawaiian bill, which passed tho Sen
ate today, n provision extending the
navigation laws of the United States to
the Islands, failed when Scnntor Cul
lom withdrew tho proposed amend
ment nt the Instigation of Scnntor Pct
tlgrcw. Under tho amendment, seven
vessels that wcro granted Hnwnllan
registry nfter annexation nnd suppos
edly for tho purpose of coming under
tho American flag with tho rest of tho
Hawaiian merchant marine, wcro not
discriminated ngatnst, although thn
Commlttco on Commcrco had reported
adversely on such nctlon ns contem
plated In n separate bill.
The vcsroIs nro owned by J. J. Mooro
fc Co., John Rosenfeld's Sons nnd Cap
tain William Matson, all of San Fran
cisco. They nro tho Star of Italy,
Stur of Russia, Star of Bengal, Star of
France, Euterpe, Falls of Clydo nnd
Wlllscott. It Is said that tho owners
compiled with tho Hawaiian laws
prior to January, 189!). The difficulty
nrlscs from tho fact that tho Islands
wcro annexed In July, 1S9S, nnd wcro
not eligible to American registry.
When tho matter was called to tho at
tention of Attorney General Griggs.
ho decided it was against tho policy of
the United States, and further grant-.
iinwaiian registry was prohibited, it

Han bill will bo bo amended in tho
Houso ns to permit nil vessels now

seven named nbovo, to sccuro Ameri

will be ngrced to when tho bill goes
eventually to the confcrcnco commit

Editor Evening Bulletin: An arti
cle appears In an evening contempor
ary, alleging to be un interview with
me, wherein I am quoted as saying that
war to tho knifo was on with tho Sea
men's Club nnd certain shipping men
in tho city. I nm Borry that the namo
of tho club should have been brought
into tho affair at all, as it has no con
nection with the club at all but was
simply a personal matter. It is well
known what the Seamen's Club was
established for and It has carried out
that object beyond the expectations of
tho founders. Tho club and its sup
porters are not on tho warpath with
any ono and don't Intend to bo but
simply to help sailor men nnd try nnd
mako It as pleasant for them as pos
sible and somo of the beBt pcoplo In
Honolulu have lent their old and nres
enco to that end.

IT IS SAID
That Thos. A. Edison used to walkuf
and down every night In front of the first
house he lighted with electricity until th
lights were extinguished, for fear that th
house would burn down; and we are sure
that any Irsurance man present, If .his
house were wired and lighted in the tamt
way as that first building would be a
grod deal more scared than was Edlsos.
In the short space of time that has passe
since then so many Improvements have
been Introduced that now a house lighted
by electricity Is a better fire risk than with
any other artificial light.
