It is not olttn that the Daily Hono
lulu Pkess " blows its own trumpet,"
but we feel a pardonable pride in call
ing attention to the "Grand Offer"
made by us, in another column of this
issue. 'I'his is an enterprise which, we
believe, is the first of its kind that has
ever been attempted in this Kingdom,
and, we trust, will receive the patronage
it deserves, as it is a
arrangement by which the public can
get a six months' subscription to our
paper, and a valuable Holiday Gift, at
club rates, which are, much less than the
regular prices when not combined.
This offer is. open only until January j,

USAOUEltS' ASSOCIATION. -
The Teachers' Association of Hawaii
will convene during the 28th and 29th
of the present month at1 the Y. M. C
A. Hall. If we arc rightly informed, the
first Teachers' Association was held here
in 1882, and since that time the Association
has done much, through its
yearly meetings, to improve the method
of teaching in this Kingdom and to advance
the cause of learning generally.
The present session will doubtless be
as well attended and most probably,
more interesting than preceding
, sions. The programme, already published,
is a good one. The papers which
will be read, (he addresses which will
. be made, the topics that will be discussed
and the consequent interchange
,, of thought, will certainly draw out many
. valuable suggestions in regard to teaching
English to native Uawaiians, and
in regard" to other educational matters.
We can now look upon the Associ
ation as being permanently organized,
and wc trust that the interest of its
members will not flag before the many
needed reforms in our school system
are accomplished. Eveiy session of
the Association is a step forward, and
the organization of the Teachers' Association
should always be looked back
to as a marked event in the history of
education in the Hawaiian Islands.
Moro Vol can io 'Xroiiblo in Java.
It will be remembered that early in
May there was an eruption of Mount
Smero, the principal volcano in Eastern
Java, which extended over some
weeks. The lava poured down the
sides of the mountain in several
streams, filling wide chasms 300 feet
deep, and practically destroying the
wide belt of coffne plantations which
lay around the base of the mountain.
Letters from Batavia say that even yet
the extent 01 the mischief done has not
been ascertained; but it is quite certain
that over 400 persons lost their
lives by it. Lately the Merahi volcano,
in middle Java, has been causing great
anxiety all over the islands by its indications
of an approaching outburst.
Then, on the west coast, in the
district, the scene of great calamity
of two years ago, electrical flashes and
distuibanccs have become frequent,
accompanied by subterranean rumbling
and explosions, especially in the
neighborhood of the old crater. The
great rock masses which were thrown
up from the sea in the cataclysm of
August, 1883, have vagnin suddenly
disappeared, and there Is now a considerable
depth of 'water where they
stood a few month ago.

The Mormon 1 rouble.
Omaha, December 5. Early this
morning General Howard received
orders to send troops 'westward, pre
sumedly to Salt Lake City. Batteries
B and C of the Fifth Artillery wet;
accordingly first ordered out, .and left
this afternoon on a special train for
the AVest over the Union Pacific. Ii
is understood that all the remaining
troops at Fort Omaha, consisting often
companies of infantry and one of
cavalry, have been put under orders
to be ready to move at i moment's
General Howard has persistently
refused to answer questions regarding
the destination of these troops. "My
orders are strictly confidential in this
case," said General Howard to your
correspondent, "and I cannot possibly
even intimate where these troops arc
going. It is ot the utmost'importancc
that the people of the community to
which they aie destined sliall not be
apprised in advance of their coming."
The genera! conclusion is that the
.roopsofthe department are all to be
repidly concentrated at Salt Lake, in
anticipntion of an attack on the Gentiles
by the Mormons. Trouble of a
serious nature has been brewing there
for the last few days which has grown
out of the arrest of Mormon's leaders
for polygamy and the constant Mormon
retaliations against Federal officers. The
other night a Deputy Marshal was
aasaulted by foui Mormons, who lay in
wait for him, one of whom ho danger
ously shot. The Mormons and their
papers denounce this shooting as the
act of an assassin, who made the first
assault, and the Mormon press is calling
for blood atonement.
Later. It is a sure thing now that
the troops from this department are
coinc to Salt Lake and it is understood
from cood authority that trouble is
looked for there
EXCITEMENT IN SALT
Salt Lake, December 5. Among
the rumors m circulation to-day are
that the Mormons arc 'massing and
.irming themselves secretly; that the
Secretary of War is on his way to
Utah to declare martial law, and a
hundred others even more improbable.
The facts as sifted out to-night are that
the Quartermaster at Fort Douglas has
rented quarters in the middle of the
city for a company of troops to be
constantly stationed as a preventive of
riotous outbreaks. A battery of artillery
is also on the way from Nebraska
and is expected here to-morrow night.
Excitement and public feeling still nip
high. The Morm n crusade against
the Gentiles for lewd and lascivious
conduct has begun again in a new
form. This time complaints are sworn
out before Mormon Justices of the
Peace ana served by the smcriit. j a

New YoRk, December 6, G. W.
Smalley's cable special to the Tribune
from London, of December 5th, says :
The Liberal successes in the English
counties have far outrun Libera) calcu
lations. The results, so far as known
this morning, give the Liberals
county seats and the Tories
eighty-one, leaving fifty-five unascertained.
Many of these voted yesterday,
and only a small number of elections
arc still to be held. The Parnellitcs
and Tones completely monopolize Ireland.
The actual Returns from the
svholc Kingdom so neatly balance that
with five-sixths of the House already
cho'seu, it is still uncertain whether the
Liberals will have a majority over both
parties. Whether it is a few more or
less matters little. A Liberal plurality
over the Tories, if obtained, of even
too would be too slight to do more
than to expel the Tories from office.
The Liberals on succeeding to power
would find themselves incapable of
carrying on the Government, unless
by the help of the very Parnellite alliance
which they denounced the Tories
for accepting. The changes are still
against any Liberal majority whatever,
and equally against any working majority
over the Tories and Parnellites.
The probable net result, therefore, of
the present election is a short, stormy
Parliament, speedy dissolution and
another general election next year. The
Liberals, nevertheless, arc much delighted
by the contrast which the
counties offer to the boroughs. The
Liberal county victories throughout
England and Scotland are most striking.
GLADSTONE'S LATEST MANIFESTO.
Gladstone, who has passed from extreme
dejection last week to extreme
elation this week, issued a fresh electioneering
address on Thursday, which
some of his friends regard as singularly
wanting in dignity and prudence. He
attempts to belittle the significance of
the Tory gains in the boroughs, and intimates
that they were the work of landlords,
churchmen, nobles and
"whereas, fn the counties you hear
the true voice of the English people "
The excitement of the contest, perhaps
excuses perversion of the facts.
AN ABLE LEADER.
Both parties admit that Parnell has
played his game with courage, skill and
accurate foresight, and is likely to find
himself, when the election is over,
exactly where he meant to be, holding
practically, if not numerically, the
balance of power between the English
parties. He will be master in the Parliament)
unless the moderates on both
sides combine on the Iiish question.
THE LATEST RETURNS.
London, December 5. The poli
tical situation to-night is one of perplexity
to all parties. The Liberals
close the week with a tie with the
Tories and Parnellites combined.
There are, however, enough constituencies
yet to vote to make the whole
issue one of absolute uncertainty. The
Libeials have elected 313 candidates,
the Conservatives 243 and the
70. While Gladstone has therefore
70 majority over the Tories, they
and the Home Rulers tie him.
There arc seventy constituencies yet
unpolled. Of these, twenty-two are
English, one Welch, four Scotch and
seventeen Irish. A carefurestimale of
the probable results in the unpolled
districts by the News Association show
that the House of Commons will
almost certainly be composed of 331
Liberals, 225 Conservatives and 84
.S'ctWrt olid Jllil(iarll.
Belgrade, December 5. Three
successive councils have resulted in
the absolute rejection of the Bulgarian
terms for an armistice, but owing to
the Powers having summoned Servia to
suspend hostilities, the commanders
are ordered'to await u Bulgarian attack.
