,. The Chinese government have published in
scheme for smashing the French andns
on Inducemcxit to foreigners to enroll under the
banner of tho Dragon, the authorities of l'ang nnd
Canton; make tho following proclamation of rewards:
For killing a commander-in-chief, 13,000 nnd
official rank; for killing a seven-striped officer,
and rank; for killing a officer,
11,000 nnd rank; for killing a officer,
G75 and rank; for killing a French soldier or sailor.
$137; for capturing a first-class ironclad,
for capturing a second-class ironclad, $110,000;
for capturing a first-class gunboat, $55,000; for
oaptnnng a gunboat, $27,000; for capturing
a fihip'a boat, $137; if a vessel bo destroyed,
one half the above amounts will bo paid; if captured,
the property will belong to the persons capturing
it; for capturing the guns of the encmr
guns weighing more than 13,000 pounds, $1,000 and
rank, and proportionately for smaller guns; any
one devising a plan by which the French aro defeated
in a fight will receive $10,000.
Now hero is a really an excellent dunce let
Brigade Major Uavley and his braves at once
volunteer. With n little practico each bravo might
at least "pot" one French soldier or sailor a day.
Say they work a hundred days, that will bo $13,-700
per man, and then there aro tho chances of
.Ticking op a field officer or two, which would
crease the emoluments considerably. A chance of
rendering our army self supporting, of giving them
practice in the field and healthful exercise shoujd
not be thrown away. Besides, the opportunity to
obtain iossossion, without paying for tt, of material
for a navy, is an inducement that should bear
frnitin the thronging forth from amid the (dis;
orderly ranks of the troops, of scorcsof volunteers!
Time is money now, and the chances are fast going
and if sot soon seized upon will be gone 1

taken up nnd tho procession passed out the
llichard street gate up Kicuaru, along Beretania
to Fort, Fort to School, School to Nunann,
to King, thennp Fort street to Bell Tower,
where tho companies wero dismissed.
Tho popular expression of opinion regarding
the appearance of tbe various companies, the neat
trim nppearanco of tbo men (noticeably so those
of Pacific Uoto Co. No. 1 who aro all young men
and marched well) the care and taste displayed in
tho engino decorations, nnd the order observed in
tbo ranks daring tbo entire march reflected creditably
on all. Had n proper care been taken to
relative distances between each company, the procession
would have appeared to better advantage
and the crowding, which was apparent, been obviated.
After disbandment of the procession formation,
the various companies betook themselves to
their bouses and there themselves and
friend-i with things regarded for tho inner
man. Mechanic Engino Co. No. 2., Hawaii No. I,
Honolulu No. 1., entertained in tho afternoon and
Pacific Hose Co. No. 1. in the evening, and all
comers wero hospitably entertained. V
Tbo members of Pacific Hose Co No 1 had not
depended on their own efforts alone to beautify
the interior of their cost meetimz room, or
mentthe exterior of their bnilding, but for the one
they obtained the assistance of many fair friends,
who with their taper fingers twined and twisted
tbe flowers, ferns and vines, that decorated the
walls and ceiling, and for the other brought to
their aid an artist's brush nnd decorator's judgment
who left their handiwork on the outer walls.
By a vote of the company it had been decided
that tho "spread" should take piaco in the evening
nnd should be a model one in its way, everything
by programme, and li'iion srrVfy dtbarml.
In accord with.tbis plan, at 7.30 p.m. on the 12th
inst, the members with invited quests set down to
a heavily laden table of viands. Without waiting
for any preliminaries, tho first toast "His
Slajesty" was proposed, drank, in sparkling ginger
ale, and followed by the rousing chorus of
"He's a jolly good fellow." A recitation was then
given by J. Lycett, followed by a song by C. K.
Sillier the chorus to which was vocalized by the
company. At this juncture Chief Engineer Nott
arrived and his presence was greeted by there roas
ing cheers and complimentary remarks from Foreman
Itascmann, fitly responded to by tho pleased
chief. Foreman Uasemann then favored with tbe
pathetic balled of "Ella Ilea." Delegate J. Asche
gave a "short speech" which was followed by
Foreman ICasemanu proposing, as a toast. Officers
and members of Honolulu No 1; appropriately acknowledged,
aud responded toby Foreman Uobert
Slorc of that company. A song hy F. H. Harrison,
recitation of tho tragic story of "Sparticu" by
C K. Stiller, a solo by, W. T. Sloasarratt, song by
Walter Pomroy. Toast to Officers and members
of Mechanic No 2 responded to by F. Uustace who
courteously proposed the "Officers and members
of Pacific Hose Co Nol." A recitation by A.
McCarty preceded an onslaught npon the good
things provided. Another season of enjoyment in
declamation, vocslizations, ctu was then gone on
with, Messrs T. F. Kennedy, D.Lyons, E. Medau,
assisting. The newspaper press was not forgotten,
bcingduly toasted and responded to by Mr.lLScaife.
It was past midnight before the "spread" was

Hawaiian Silver, ,
Emrun Gazette: In J. 31. U's communication
of the 11th inst. bo expresses sympathy for the retail
dealers of the Islands on account of tho vexatious
and ruinous straits iher are reduced to in
order to exchanco their silver receipts for cold or
ezchango wherewithal to pay for tlreir goods. He
has our thanks.
His proposition however fur wholesale dealers
tn raise their prices to enable'them to accept silver
in payment did not have his nsoal tbonghtf ul
consideration before being sent to you. Were be
a trader bo would know that the majority of goods
sold have a regular scale ot prices and for a retailer
to ask more would be to lose custom; consequently
it would be .wise for him to stand Ihe loss
in price and he woald find that tbo higher rates he
was paying would be even more than tbe premium
ho now pays to exchange bis silver for gold
or its eqivalent.
J. SI. H. hits tho nail ou tho bead when be says
it is a bad business for a Government to make
and circulate a legal tender money and then
it, still he will have noticed similar vacillations
in tbe policy (?1 of the present government
in many instances. He has merely noted
the quiver of the tottering of tbe government to
its rum, as predicted- when portfolios were tendered
to tbe present ministry.
J. SI. It. and I, and all who love Hawaii-nel,
like to see each man in the kingdom have his
rights, personal, property, and political, and of
course to see the people as a united whole, as a
government, have their whole rights.
How it rouses our ire to even hear of a representative
accepting bribes in any form for tbe
passing ox a law uiat wui uepirvo a single
of an iota of his rights or the people at
large of theirs.
In any instance where a party has overmatched
the government and it has suffered loss, the people's
rights have been infringed on and as the
people condemn a ministry whose vacillations
or truckling conduct has allowed it,
so it should be held responsible for tbe loss.
That tbe people lost 25 per cent of the $800,000
the cost cf the 1,000,000 fiaUkana dollars (which
came in duty free and was worked off on a great
measura on the laboring classes) is a fact no one
denies. That $1,000,000 Kalekaua dollars is more
than is wanted for chance. 10 only beinz legal
tender, all will admit. I propose that Mr.
o. whoever pocketed tho profit return it to the
Treasury, and that the Government, being thus
enabled to do so without much loss, dispose of all
bnt fOOUJJOOot the Kalakana dollars, which will be
found ample for change. By this means a great
wrong will be righted and one step will have been
taken to retard the fall of tbe Government.

Tho Irrepressible Wiggins.
I have now to announce that I have discovered
tbo periodic time of the great Saxeby gale of Oct,
7, 1609 the storm which almost annihilated the
forests of New England apd tbo Maritime Pro
vinces, ruining their timber interests. Thh period
I find to be 5,101 days, so that it will be here
on September 10, 1887, nnd will bo the greatest
storm that will take place before the year 1900.
Its greatest force will be on tho afternoon of September
20, when the forests on the eastern coasts
will in all probability go down before it. It will
bo accompanied by earthquakes, and these will
recur with great violence in tho middle of October
in uallfornia ana Western Europe. Let no frail
fisherman's bark then cast its Bhadow into the
looking-glass of (what Horace calls him) tho powerful
god of tho sea. Between that period and tho
present the heaviest storms which will occur are
as follows :
March 13-20, 1883.
September 29-50, 1880 (verv heavy).
March 20-29, 1887.
As 1 neTer paid a cent for advertising storms,
and for my storm predictions never received one
the generosity of tho press being a reward for my
efforts in the public interests 1 trust yon will be
good enough to keep these storms before seamen
and thus save millions of dollars and many lives.
I shall not myself refer to them. I am constantly
in receipt of letters from persons in the United
States offering mo money, and in some cases largo
rewards, for reading their future from tbe planets
and their destiny from the stars. To theso deluded
people I have neither timo nor inclination to
reply, other than to say that ther nro not vet ont

In Tiew ot the interest now centered noon Nic
aragua, it TOT bo interesting to republish a resume
oi ine Treaty, which we and In
Bradstreet's. Many people have forgotUn the
provisions of that treaty.
In June, 1349, Mr. Uise, who had been appointed
charts d affairs to tho Central American States,
under the administration ot Polk, negotiated a
treatT with the state of Ni .rafmA. which ae trail
to "the United States or to a company of tho
thereof, tho exclusive right and privilega tr
raako, constrnct and build within tho territories
of the state of Nicaragua a canal or
road or roads, cither railways or turnpikes
or any other kind of road, for the purpose of
a convenient passage and communication between
the Carrtbbeanseaand tbo Pacific ocean."
Before the reception of thi treat hv t!, Kif
Department, a new charge d affairs had been com-
"wwwaou touonuai America in ine person or
Mr. Scmier,who was instructed by Mr. Clayton.the
bead of the new Whig administration ot Taylor
(which succeeded tbe Democratie administration
of Polk) to "claim no peculiar privileges no ex
elusive right no monopoly ot commercial intercourse,"
and in ease- a charter or grant of the
right ot way had been "incautiously or inconsiderately
made ' before his arrival, to seek to have the
same properly modified. Sir, Squier succeeded in
his mission, tbe Hiso treaty was suppressed, and
a treaty negotiated by Mr. Squior and embodying
the views of tbe administration, was sent to the
Senate tor ratification. Shortly afterwards negotiations
wero opened with tho English
zuent, which resulted in the treaty,
wmcwucu Apni i, icuu. inreomonins alter the
conclusion of; the treaty, tho short-lived administration
of Mr. Clayton gave place to ono headed
by Mr. Webster.
The preamble of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty de?
dares the desire of tho respective governments of
me umieu states ami ureal iirtUtn,to consolidate
the relations of amity existing between them by
"setting forth and fixing in a convention their
TieWE and intentions with referenea tn nnv mMn
uf communication by ship canal which may be
vuuauucini uciween ine .viianiio anu lacinc
oceans by tho way of tho river San Juan deNicar.
agua, and either or both of tho lakes of Nicaragua
or Managua to any port or place on tho Pacific
ocean." Tho first article declares that "neither
tho ono or tho other will ever obtain or maintain
for itself any exclusive control over the said ship
canal," "or occupy or fortify or colonize or assume
or exercise any jurisdiction over .Nicaragua, Costa
Biro and the Mosquito coa3t or any part of Central
America," "nor take any advantage of any
intimacy or nse any alliance, connections or
that cither may posse) with any state or
government through whose territory the canal may
pass for thepurposoot acquiring or holding directly
or indirectly for tho citizens or subjects of
the one any rights or advantages in regard to
or navigation through the said canal which
shall not be offered on tho aimo terms to the citizens
or subject ot tho other." The contracting
parties farther "engage to invite every Btato
jvith which both or either havo friendly Intercourse
into stipulations with them similar to those
which they have entered into with each other,"
and in particular to enter into treaty stipulations
with such ot the Central American states as they
may deem advisable "for thepurposoof carrying
out tho design ot the convention." Finally, the
contracting parties declare that their desire! in
entering into the convention having been not only
"to accomplish a particular object but to establish
a general principle," they agree to extend thoir
protection by treaty stipulations to any other
practicable communications, whether by canal or
railway, across the isthmus which connects North
and South America." After tho ratification of the
treaty certain memoranda were exchanged between
tho negotiators to the effect that tbe stipulations in
tho first article did not apply to the British settlement
in Belize, though the fact ot governmental
control was not admitted on tho part ot the
unnca rjiaies. as wiu be seen rrorn what pre
cedes, the treaty embodied very completely Mr.
Clayton's policy of not claiming any peculiar privileges
or exclusive rights. The privileges already
gamed were surrendered and tho future aotton of
tho United States in Central America was limited
by a compact with a European power.
One further circumstance remains to bo noted
in connection with tho story of the negotiation ot
the treaty. Its immediate object appears to have
been to utilize a concession made bv the state of
Nicaragua in 1319. In that year Nicaragua made
a grant to an American company organized for
tho construction of an interoccauic canal a grant
(accompanied with various favors and privileges)
of all such portions of the territory claimed by
that Btato as tho company might require. The aid
of Great Britain was sought, both because of the
difficulty of obtaining the necessary capital In
the United States, and becansa without England's
countenance tho canal could not be built, owing to
the fact that tho mouth of tho San Juan river was
held Ly a people protected by Great Britain. Surveys
wero made on both sides with a view of determining
as to the practibility of the canal, and
favorable report wero made. A combination of
British capitalists and American stock holders was
contemplated; but tho enterprise finally' fell
through, and the concession obtained was never
ntilized, nnd has, it seems, been since superseded
by grants to other companies.
