Jali subject exiled from Hawaii for par
ticipation In -a cmisplraey to overthrow
the present government, bJt now a resi
dent f Ban Francisco, wants to return
there. Application being made on his be
half by Great JJritain, permission was j-c-
fuscj by tlie Hawaiian authorities, und
now the threat is made that jVshford shall
land even IT It Is necessary to send him
to Honolulu on board a British war tes
sel and enforce his landing under the
shadow of British guns. It is easy to sec
how complications might arle from the
resentment or tlie Hawaiian government,
and the insistence of Great Britain, by
mc.ius of -which an opportunity could be
afforded the latter to gam a footing which
she would not lis slow to retinijnlsli.
It is reported that in the ient Great
Britain attempts so high handed a piece
of business as is reported to be her In
tention Hawaii -will implore the .aatlst
ance of the United States against the vio
lation of her authority and dignity. Should
it come to this pass this government can
hardly refuse to Jntcrferf, for, although
the present administration, especially the
boss of it, feels very sore over Its failure
lo reinstate "Queen Ul and acL-ompUsh the
overthrow of the young republic, It -would
not dare to stand idly by and see Great
Britain grasp another feeble country by
the throat and throttle it as a prelimi
nary to rob It of its possessions. Were
the I'-rcsident to refuse to take action It
would only add another -weight to the
load of obloquy which, on account or his
course toward Hawaii, is now resting
upon him. It matters little "whether Ash
ford goes to or is kept away from na-wati,
but it matters miiili that Great Britain
shall not be permitted to gain a still firmer
fotting in the Western Hemisphere.
FRENCH OX GOHED.
The 'French government finds a dose of
its own medicine er bitter, and pro
tests against k allowing It. even though it
is administered by France's historic friend,
the United Plates. France has made the
most stringent laws and regulations against
the importation of American cattle, the
pretext being defective inspection on this
side, and consequent danger from disease:
the 'real reason, however, being the sharp
rxmpelillou our excellent beef makes rur
the Inferior native article, and the lessen
ing of profits for French tt!c-raiscrs.
This action is virtually prohibitory, so far
as the Importation of Americnn bref is
concerned, and the United States has
retaliated by interdicting the shipment of
French cattle for our ports. The first case
basarisen, and the French government Las
Germany and Switzerland are in the
same Ik with France. These countrlesalso
arc named Jn the proclamation Issued by
the President about six months ago, be
ta tiic thcy.too.discrlminatcdagalust Amer
ican cattle, and the retaliatory policy au
thorized by the tariff law of 1S94 was put
in force. French cattle arc notoriously af
flicted with diseases of various kinds, and
jet the French government objects to a
rigid inspection of those intended for ex
portation, though imposing It upon foreign
beeves.' There is no other way than that
pursued by the President to bring the gov
ernments of Europe to a realization of the
fact that a fair exchange is no robbery and
tit for tat a policy as well adapted to na
tions as to individuals.

the people of the District are specially In;

surely be the result of a deadlock on, this

If all the other appropriation bills arc got

Mrs. Hrinkhousc were awakened by a noise
In their bedroom. The ftrst -thing to meet
their gaze was a man standing nt the bu-
-reau. He was searching the drawers and
carried a dark lantern.
Thinking discretion was the better part
or valor, neither Mr. Dnnklioase nor bis
wire pretended that they hud been awak
ened, and the burglarious visitor continued
his operations In ignorance that his every
movement was being chwsly watched.
Occasionally he would approach Hie bed
to see K the occupants were sleeping, and
hemg apparently satisfied, would rcsmne
his search. On the bureau was a jewel,
case, H.ilcli. however, -was Jockcd; a sum
fir money and several diamond rings'. The
Jewel case was picked up by the burglar
and examined but was replaced on the
bureau, nnd in the -morning none of the
valuables were misslngf
After examining the bedroom very thor
oughly the burglar proceeded to Investi

The Electric furnace.
Prof. Dewnr, In a lecture before tho
Rojal Society, In discussing the iios.-lbill-ties
of synthetical chemistry which havu
been disclosed oy thu electric furnace,
slated that rrom the carbides prepared in
the electric furnace we can get benzine,
and, therefore, all thu "aniline dyes, ana
even crude petroleum. Acetylene gas. an
other product ot the electric furnace,
combines directly with nitrogen lu the
presence of np electric discharge, and gives
prusslc acid, nnd from this we can readily
get cyauide's. Iu fuet, there Is no end to
the sphere of Usefulness of the felcctrio
rurnace, which, lie states, 'may even solvo
the problem of making nitrogenous manure. '
