The trial of the opium smugglers at
Portland will open tbe eyes of the peo
ple of the country to tbe extent to
which this practice has been conducted,
and to the wonderful ramifications of
the opium ring that haa for years
almost entirely wiped out the legitimate
business of importing opium. The
government has lost at least $2,000,000
a year in duties, and this vast sum has
gone to swell tbe nefarious gains of the
opium smuggling syndicate. Of course
the higher the duty the less chance the
government has to collect it. It acts as
a premium upon smuggling, and encour
ages a lawless trade which could not ex
ist if the duty were fixed on reasonable
It looks aa if the jury-fixer had got in
bis nefarious work in tbe panel to try
Coughlin for the murder of Dr. Cronin.
Fortunately the state's attorneys got
wind of the matter before the trial waa
commenced, and the judge arreated pro
ceedings co that an investigation could
be bad. It ie getting ao now that tbe
public haß lost all faith in jury trusts
where there are powerful reasons be
hind the man tried to prevent a convic
tion. We can imagine of no more dan
gerous crime againßt society than this
tampering with the very source of jus
tice. Jury-bribing cannot be too severely
dealt with. No punishment is too great
to expiate a crime of this character.
Tbe ordinary murderer kills only a man,
and hia crime is only felt by his victim
and family and their immediate friends.
But the jury-briber strikes off the very
binges that hold society together, and
aims a deadly blow at the security of
the whole community. It should be
made a capital offense, for in its effect
it is far more injurious and wide-reach
ing than many of tbe offenses that are
now placed in that category.
Cleveland's Hawaiian policy, to re
store the qneen to power, will hardly
be energetically pursued alter next
Monday. Congress will be in session
and will bave something to say on the
subject. We can hardly conceive that
the feeling in congress will be in line
with the purpose outlined in the Gres
ham letter, and tbe administration,
headstrong aa it is, will not care to
cross swords with the representatives of
tbe people to perform an act at which
American sentiment rebels. After tbe
whole dragnetted testimony addressed
by Blouat to show that the ex-queen
waa deposed not by the revolution, but
by the display of force from the war
ship Boston, this view digested, the fact
remains that the revolution would have
been too much for her in any event.
No one believes, for a mome.'it, that the
wealth and intelligence of the islands,
ao represented in the new government,
could have been fiuccesifully met by the
<]ueen'i native soldiers. The landing of
tho Boston's men may have prevented
bloodshed, but that they by any act or
'disposition made of them contributed
to overthrowing the queen's govern
ment nobody believes. Tbe fact tbat
they were lasde'd was seized upon by
the queen aa a convenient" and timely.
excuse to yield rather than put hei
sense to the arbitrament of a fight that
would undoubtedly have been disastrous
to Lilinokalani'a backers. If the next
news from Honolulu shows that Willis
has carried out his instruction and rein
stated the queen, unless he has also
gone to the inconceivable length of
using the naval arm of the country to
keep her on the throne, tbe announce
ment of her restoration will be accom
panied with the news that she has been
again deposed, and perhaps tbat the
provisional government has declared
Hawaii an independent republic. After
all the monkeying of our administra
tion with this Hawaiian question we
shall not be astonished to learn that the
American element there has taken on a
disgust that will materially jeopardize
our prestige in the islands, and that it
will have made either annexation or a
protectorate beyond our immediate
power to secure.
IS REFORMATION POSSIBLE?
Of all places on the American conti
nent San Franciaco is the last in which
cut, wonld expect to see a movement
started that would have for its object
the reformation of the press, and the
excision from the columns of tbe news
papers of tbe Golden Gate of tbe improper
and the salacious. And yet a petition
signed by seventeen thousand women,
addressed to the publishers and editors
of that city, has been confronting tbe
public for some days, and to say tbat it
has created a sensation is to put the case
mildly. The fact has been telegraphed
east, and has elicited very favorable
comment. The publishers of San Fran
cisco will undoubtedly hold, whether
they think it prndent to say co or no,
that they bave been giving their read
ers precisely the kind of newspaper pab
ulum they desired to bave. Indeed,
Miss Kate Field takes this ground in
treating tbe petition. Bnt, admitting
this to be true, tbe ladies are
right. The past practices ■of
tbe San Francisco press would
be mored honored in the breach than
in the observance. The Herald takes
a special pleasure in knowing that we
can commend the attitude of those seek
ing reform without inconsistency. This
journal has always made it a point of
giving its readers a clean sheet. Recog
nizing tbe fact that a newspaper mnst
give the news, it has always been care
ful to see tbat salacious matters should
not be treated Balacionsly, and tbat de
cency and morality have claims even
above sensationalism. It is not pleas
ant to know tbat there are large num
bers of people who pretend to a high
standard of morality and who are the
first to buy and read journals which vio
late the rules of propriety, but this ie
only too true. Jnet here is where the
greatest obstacle to reform will bo found
to exist. Tbe diseased demand has
been created in large masses of persons
of both sexes, and there will always be
found publishers unprincipled enough
to seek to pander to this abnormal ap
petite. We heartily wish tbe ladies
God-speed in their crusade for the right.
A DAY OF THANKS.
This year Thanksgiving day is eet by
the president a week later than usual,
and consequently it brings the winter
holidays closer together than they gen
erally fall. We have unquestionably a
great deal to be thankful for in tbe past
year. The good Lord has done every
thing to make us happy and prosperous.
He baa given us clement seasons, made
the soil fruitful and tbe weather health
ful. All the natural conditions to
health, wealth and well-being have
been eminently vouchsafed us; it ia
only man who has abuaed bis privileges
and brought suffering, distress and want
on a conntry where peace, plsnty and
prosperity should universally prevail.
Tbat mal-legialation and a vicious sys
tem of economics, leading to monopo
lies and all tbe consequent ills we are
heir to, should have spread a blight
over the land, is no reason
we should refuse to recognize the
beneficence of a benign cruator,
who, in spite of man's perversity,
haa showered hia choicest blessings on
us. Tbe country never possessed the
natural conditions to prosperity in a
greater degree than it baa during the
past year, and yet it has never passed
through a more fearful experience of
gloom and panic, all artificially and
criminally brought about. In spite,
however, of these artificial conspiracies
against the well-being of the country,
her recuperative powers are asserting
themselves, and the promise of better
timeß and happier conditions is span
ning the land with the prismatic hues of
tbe welcome rainbow of a bright and
prosperous future. We can well afford
to return thanks to the great author of
all good for hia manifold manifestations
in our favor—for having given ua a
conntry over whose better destinies even
the power of evil in man has been raised
"TIS THE PRINCE THOU LOVEST,
NOT THE MAN."
Another American woman, who
thought she had drawn a prize in the
matrimonial lottery by marrying a
foreign prince, has come to grief. A
few years ago Miss Bryant, the daughter
of Mra. J. W. Mackay, was beguiled by
the glitter of a princely title to marry
one of the Colonna.. It waa eaid at the
time that the marriage waa a love affair,
but if such it was on the part of Miss
Mackay (for she had adopted her step
father*, name), it wbb evidently a more
mercenary venture on the part of the
Italian prince, who is a gambler and an
all-round fast man. His wife was al
lowed an income of $175,000 a
year, and hia principal business
seems to have been to wheedle
her oni of money go as to keep up this
fast life at the horee-races and the
gambling resorts. His wife's eyea ware
•t laatopened to the utter worthlesanesa
of his Character, and she left him. Mies

■ ance with European men of title. That
; any of these marriages result happily is
i a marvel. The very conditions of their
coming together,-in nine cases out of
ten, are obnoxious to connubial bliss.
It is a cold matter of bargain and sale.
The needy man with a title confers his
rank upon the flirt for a consideration.
No affection, no romance, no mutuality
of feeling, much leas love, can
become a potent factor in mar
riages thns made. He marries her for
j the money he can get out of her, nnd
I she trim for the glare and glitter and
: social standing which a title will bring
to her. No sentiment instinct with en
during respect for each other enters
into such a compact. It is of the world
worldly, and the novelty soon wears off.
i Then they see each other as they ren'.ly
j are. Love, if such a thing can enter into
the unholy alliance, grows cold. Con
i tempt takes the place of compSaiaanee,
and the inevitable break couicb. Indec J,
with rare exceptions, marriages can
never be happy unless there be
something like equality between
the groom and bride. But wheie
one side ie wrapped up in .the
id3a oi superiority of rank and
birth, and the other feele tiiat this su
periority has been paid (or in gold coin,
there always is, as Sir Lucics O'i'riggei
would say, the basis (or the prettiest
quarrel that ever was Eeen. If the
quarrel do not come, it is because the
weaker party is patient, long-suffering
i and resigned to fate. The American
girl of wealth takes the most dangerous
risk when she goes outside of her own
people and her own circle to throw her
self at the feet of a titled suitor.
THE NEVADA SOUTHERN.
The canvass for the $80,000 for the
speedy extension of the Nevada South
ern railway is going along as satisfac
torily as its most earnest friends could
wish. Yesterday, amongst other sub
scriptions, the Messrs. Maier & Zob
elein subscribed $5000. These enter
prising brewers realize the great ad
vantage the speedy completion of this
roard will be to Los Angeles. The news
from the region which will be tributary
to thiß railway is increasing in interest
every day. The Pioche Record, oi Nov.
ltitb, under the head of another ''El
Dorado," contained the following:

The location of these new mines is

with scores of other camps, they will

fact onght not to be forgotten tbat this
whole region has been accepted for over
a third of a century as one ot the richest
territories in gold and silver in the
United States, to say nothing of its won
derful stores of iron, coal, copper, lead,
nitrates and other valuable minerals.
The completion of the road cannot fail
to result in almost fabulous develop
ments in all lines of mineral products.
IS THERE SUCH A THING AS AN UGLY
Is a woman ever ugly? Thia ia a
question one is often tempted to ask
one's eelf in view oi the language of the
ordinary rsporter in describing any fe
male who appears in court in divorce or
other proceedings. A Kentuckian is
said to bave acquitted himself of the
aphorism that all whisky is good, but
that some whisky is better than others.
Thus we may say that all women are
pretty, but that come women are prettier
than others. It goes hard with a news
paper man it be can't make out the lady
with whom his facile pen concerns itaeli
at least reasonably good looking. If
there is tbe leaat paltering with the
propoaition we may then be assured that
Sycorax, the dam of Caliban, was not
uglier tnan the female thus timidly
referred to. Perhaps this ie just as well.
This courtly way of treating the matter
at the worst belongs to the domain of
the white lie, and it is productive of
exquisite gratification to the person
thus complimented. But, notwith
standing all tho optimism involved in
this charitable view of the mat
ter, it must be admitted that in
the past nt least there has been a
homely woman or two. Some of them
have been co ugly that they would sour
milk and give an ordinary man a pain
in tho Btomach to look at them. Even
the illußtriouß Dean Swift found it con
venient to parody a line of Pope's, and
to ii..) of bis daughter Camilla, whom
he caught washing her face, "Swift's
Camilla scours the plain." What hap
pened to the witty Dean upon hia ven
turing npon thia sally history eayeth
not, but in the present age such revolt
ing truthfulness would be met with un
speakable resentment and indignation.
Even fiom a father it would he intolara
ble, and pater famiiias would soon dis
cover that he had made a bad break. In
'this age the ladies will tolerate no
trifling, so that it has ,passed int.- a
canon that tbey are ail aa pretty as a
picture. Sometimes these charms may
be latent and can only be seen as
through a glass darkly. But it has be
come an axiom that the man who fails
to discern feminine perfection is but
little better than a brute. Even the
timid assertion that one woman may be
prettier than nnr.ther is attended with
perils, as witness tlie dire results attend
ing the judgment of Paris.
ItUNOIS Hall.—Hon. William Jack

Hard Times. Those who heard this
distinguished speaker some months ago

young Woman tightly hugging a man
i around the neck caused Bhoppers on
i 14th street to stare in surprise on
j Wednesday afternoon. The young wo
man was Louisa Feirabend, who lives
in Hoboken. She had been shopping,
and with her armß full of bundles was
on her way to the Hoboken ferry when
a well-dressed young man rimhed up
an entcf.ed her pocket book. Quick as
a Hash she dropped he bundles and,
throwing her arms around the young
thiol's neck, she held him while she
screamed ior the police.
The thief struggled to free himself
' from the unloving embrace, but the girl
had a grip on him that he could not

thief. At the station-house the pocket
book was found on him. He gave his
name ac Robert Beach and said his

he waa robbed. Then he beat his way

SHE DEMANDS A SEPARATION.
Mrs. Mackay's Daughter Sues
The Princess Colonna Is Tired of
lie Haa Proved an Expensive T.uxnry and
lias Coat the Konenxa King
Many Million Dollars—Hia
tory of the Hatch.
By tho Associated T'ross.
Paris, Nov. 29.—Princess Colonna
gave a dinner party this evening at her
residence on the Rue de la Gaisanderie.
Mrs. Mackay was seen by an Associated
Press correspondent and questioned with
reference to the suit her daughter has
brought for separation from her hus
band. Mrs. Mackay did not Beeni at all
concerned over the suit. She refused to
to give any information as to the censes
which led Princess Colonna to bring the
suit, and referred the interviewer to
her husband iv New York and to the
solicitor in charge of the case, in Lon
don, as the only persons able to give tbe
MRS. MACKAY CITOSED TO THE HATCH.
The marriage took place in Paris in
ISBS. Monsignor De Rendeni, papal
nuncio to France, officiated at tbe reli
gious ceremony, which was one of the
social events of that season.
Two years before the marriage Prince
Colonna met Mrs. Mackay's daughter,
then Miss Bryant, in Italy. He followed
her to Paris and aßked Mrs. Mackay
for her hand. She replied:
"I don't epprove of her marrying a
foreigner; moreover, don't be deluded.
She is not Mr. Mackay's child, but bis
stepdaughter. Sbe has no money of her
own, therefore she has no dot. She is
my daughter by my first husband, but
she takes Mr. Mackay's name at his
request." The prince psrsis'ed, md his
uncle, Prince Stigliano Colonna, wrote
in bis behalf, saying that money was of
no consequence, as it was a love match.
Mrs. Mackay eventually gave way.
The bride was married without a dot or
settlement, but Mrs. Mackay allowed
her an income of $175,000 a year, besides
giving her many valuable presents.
The prince and his bride went to
Naples. Six months after the marriage
the prince began demanding money oi
his wife. She then discovered that he
had a taste for gambling, horse-racing
and fast life.
THE I'HINCE WAS ABUSIVE.
She bore his abuse, taunts and vul
garity until October last, when she left
him in Paris and took her three chil
dren to the llorel Brighton, where her
grandmother, Mrs. Hungerford, was
staying. Mrs. Mackay at the same time
came on from Scotland to her daughter's
An intimate friend of tbe family in an
interview eaid: Prince Colonna and
Mrs. Mackay bave not spoken ior years.
No one would believe tbe enormous
Eums Mr. Mackay haß paid for tbe
prince's gambling debts—over $5,000,000
in five years. Apart from tbe allowance
be made bis step-daughter, he also gave
her the money with which to furnish
their home. All went in gambling.
When bis wife left their apartments
the prince sold all the tapestries and
furniture, and even her wedding pres
ents, and is now living on tbe proceeds.
HER AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE.
He frequently eaid to hie wife: "I will
take your American independence out
She seplied: "You may if you kill
The friend who told me tbe above
added tbat ench a long-suffering and
devoted wife as the princess was never
known. Finally she lost all respect for
her husband and determined to leave
him. The only time they have since
met wae dnring the preliminary pro
ceedings in court.
John W. Mackay has written to bis
daughter: "I am glad you have taken
this Btep. People will talk, of course,
but you do not live to please other peo
ple, and need not care what anyone says
as long as you are happy and free."
The case comes on shortly. The prin
cess and her mother are living quietly
in adjoining apartments at the Hotel
Brighton in this city and have refused
all social invitations. Mrs. Mackay,
however, expectß to attend the wedding
of Miss Addie Grant and the earl of Es
sex in London.
PEDIGREES OF THE COUPLE.
Eva Julie Bryant Mackay was born
in Downieville, Sierra connty, Cal.
Her father was a pioneer physician
who practiced and died among tbe gold
miners. At tbe time of her birth John
Mackay wae frying his share of the
flapjacks in the same famous cabin
which tbey propose exhibiting at the
midwinter fair. Presently John Mackay
Btruck it, and on tbe strength of bis
prosperity he married the widow Bry
ant, who as Mrs. JoDn Mackay haa en
tertained even royalty in her palaces.
According to tbe Almanach de Gotha,
Prince Colonna is a descendant of an an
cient patrician family of Rome, which
claims relation with tbe Popes Marcel
linus, Sextue, 111., Etienne IV. and
Adrian 111. His line reaches directly
back to Pietro de Colonna, who flour
ished in the twelfth century.
Tbe princess is now nearly 33 years
old, while her profligate husband is 35.
