" POLITICAL. Political gossip Ls already rifealtout Pres. idential candidates. There is kM to Ik; no doubt that two New Yorkers are in the field Chester A. Arthur and ."Samuel J. Tildn. In the ea.se of t!ie latter the olil ticket Tildeii anl Hendricks will be re vived, the one that wa-s leateii by Hayes in 1")T;. Although Arthur has not author ized anyone to announce that he ha.s de rideil to submit hims,df as a cainlidate to the Republican Xatioiia I Convention, he talks of the plan with his intimates and his projiosed western trip look as if he liad in view a broader acquaintance with the ix-ople. It is telegraphed that Dana of the New York Sun said in an interview that if it lay with him to decide who .should be President, William S. Holman, of Indiana would be the man. When asked on what issues he thought the tight would be waged he replied rather wittily, "The Democrats will fiffht to out the KeiMiblie.uis out and the Republicans will fight to keep them selves in." Thurman of Ohio and Judge Field of Cal ifornia, are talked of as hopeful Democratic candidates, esneeiallv the latter, whose probity in deciding certain cases involving popular feeling, according to the law, without regard to joIitical bearings, has greatly endeared him to the Molid and thoughtful men of his part y. A comic de scription of Til Jen's personal appearance is given by one of the Free lances of the Re publican party, who compared him to a mythical old woman who went to have an aching tooth taken out. The dentist found th tooth obstinate and aiMd vinj' all his strength jerked out the complete lony "tructureof his patient, whose flabby resi due the foxy Sammy J. is said to resemble. EUROPEAN. All fiver Kurone a portentous calm - reigns, an ominous and deceitful lull, fol lowing uinjii the excitement of dynamite ami anarchy that was -seething among the lower cla-ssfvs a mouth azo. The Irish con spirators have been convicted and sen tenced to imprisonment and heavy fines. Carey, the informer in the case of the Irish murders has Ikhmi turned uion the world which it is feared will prove cold ami un sympathetic towards him-The Fnglish gov ernment has .simply used him and thrown him away, giving him neither reward nor protection. Meantime the bill granting an Fngli.sh man the legal right to marry his deceased wife's sister has been defeated with much outcrv from the Bishops after much persistent pushing from thu Princes of the royal family, who, not b,eing allow ed to vote on political questions, throw themselves with redouble I ardor into any moral or .S4cial debate like the present. The example of the United States was used fin both sides. Kurl Dalhousie .saying that such mama-res had lieen followed lV no baneful results ill America, and Lord Cairns in theopposition retorting that they hud only American testimony for that, and that Americans always cried up their own institutions. Queen Victoria has caught up' a neat little vengeance on Gladstone for refusing to send her younger hojH'ful Prince Leo pold as Governor to Canada, vice Lome bored out. She has refused to bestow the order of Knighthood upon Henry Irving, the tragedian because -she was asked to do to by the Prince of Wales who is the sworn friend of Gladstone. Now she looks tri umphantly overat the Premier as one who ays, "I have a few prerogatives left, you perceive." The Duke of Marlborough died on the 5th and his .mm, the naughty, naughty Marquis of Hlan.lford reigns in hi stead naughty because he is the bold adventurous man who ran away with Lady Ellsworth about half a doeii years ago, and still remains, like Sir Lancelot, "falsely true" to that "faith unfaithful and honor rooted in dishonor," for not only was his lady love married already, but he himself had a fair Marchioness, one of those eleven beautiful sisters, by the way, whom Beaconsfield idealize I iu his Loth- air. Lord Randolph Churchill, another of the Duke of Marloomugii s sous, ana mar ried to our American beauty, Miss Jerome that was, has handed to Gladstone the af fidavits and other documents in support of his assertion that the Khedive incited the massacre of English residents in Alexan dria, and an anxious public awaits devi loi ments,but a more terrible ficciip.itioii than that by the English is paralyzing Egypt, namely the cholera of which the ravages are unabated, according to the last dis patches. There have leen now fiver 1,000 deaths at Cairo, the Egyptian Government has accepted the ornVr of England to send twelve skilled doctors to the infected dis trict. It was decided to form a cordon round Alexandria to prevent the intlux of refugees from the Infected districts, and the European ioversare increasingquarantine regulations against Persian goods and ves sels from Egypt owing to the prevalence of cholera. The immense truillc by the Suez canal has made the construction of a new cut through that isthmus or the widening of the present passage a matter of pressing necessity. It is an established fact that the canal is to be built, and a number of French financial houses have offered De Ix-sseps, the caaall-t par excellence, all the money required to make the new canal or widen the existing one. No such .scheme could be concocted of course without a few threatening wags of the heal between j France ami England, but the latest is that after a cabinet council, Sir Charles uivers Wilson is to go to Paris ami interview De I s-eps, and amended projoals are looked for in regard to the canal by the House "of Commons, proio.sals omitting the provis ion pledging England to find the money for the new feat of engineering. STKIKK OK TELEGRAPH OPERATORS. If the Old World is calm a.s to the labor ing classes, the United States decidedly is not. At 1 o'clock Washington time, on the 19th of July, the operators in the West ern Union Telegraph Company's employ all over the Union and aUo those in the em ploy of the Oreat North we-t Telegraph Com pany iu Canada, .-truck almost to a man and are holding out still. The strike had been expected and threatened for several days, but there was a rumor just before the actual outbreak that a com promise had been eirected with the employers. Sympathy is decidedly with the strikers. Their demands for an advance upon their salaries are founded iu sound justice. Telegraphy as a calling makes immense demands on the nervous .-ystem, involves the mental strain of responsibility beside, and for the most part telegraphers work in hot, gas-poisoned rooms. It is scientifically true that they break down early, often becoming deaf from the unremitting effort of the ear. So much for the labor, now how about compensation. The Western Union Compauy condescend ed to consider the proposition of allowing the men to rest on Sunday, or to draw extra pay wheu they work on that day, but still they must work oue Sunday in six for noth ing. The men have suffered reductions in their wages from time to time amounting to twenty-five percent, and they only ask for an advance of 15 per cent, and for reas onably short hours of labor. There exists an organization called the Brotherhood of Telegraphers, and it is the Executive Com mittee of this body that oiganized the strike. Their newspaper, the Telegrapher' Advo cate, printed a statement ou the tyranny of employers towards opentors, which has been going ou for ten years, during which time three geueral reductions of wages have beeu made, while the net profits of hand ling messages are much greater than in former years, on account of improved ma chinery and the more skillful labor now employed. The present average of pay for commercial operators is Sol a mouth, and for railroad operators $39.o0, and no extra pay for Sunday work. Railroad operators at stations where but oue man is employed, are required to work from fourteen to six teen hours a day. Auother reasonable de- maud is that women shall receive the same pay as men. The strikers are behaving splendidly. Usually telegraph operators come from a good class of people, and the very cipher dispatch which commanded the strike, contained the words "Do no unlaw ful act.'' Many of the stations used the words "General Grant dropped dead," as the signal to quit the ke3Ts, because such a message was sure of speedy and universal transmission. The strikers do not make the least attempt to interfere with those who prefer to remain with the companies, nor with those who hasten to offer their services to the deserted offices. Of course there are a number of such applicants and the em-. ployers boast loudly that they shall not miss the strikers at all, but an honest, earn est strike always comes to be a matter of endurance at the end, which can tire out the other soonest. Twice as much work is of course being demanded from the skilled operators who remain at the keys and the real shock of war will be when these are used up and retire to recuperate, when the new zeal of the raw recruits from colleges and rusty knowledge of retired operators who have pressed into the field, is wrung to its last gasp by a few consecutive nights at the instruments until three and four o'clock. Certainly as yet there has been nothing "queer" about the dispatches re ceived, nor have the wires been disconnect ed anywhere, while in a number of the cit ies the strikers have met to pass a resolution to abstain from intoxicants until the strike Is decided one way or the other. The men in Chicago say that they have the Knights of Labor at their back to provide them with funds and that they mean to make a long fight. Her in San Francisco some of the little telegraph messenger boys thought it excellent to "strike" and managed to kick up quite a dust by so doing. A number of of their comical speeches were reported about the length of time they were going to 'hang eut,' the advance of a cent which they demanded and the condign punishment they would inflict upon auy boys who offer ed their services to fid the vacancies. The little sinners actually caused more inconven ience and genuine obstruction to business than the defection of the telegraph opera tors themselves. This emergency is giving a fair trial to Sir Charles Wheatston's au tomatic transmitter about which a great deal has been said lately. It enables 500 words a minute to be transmitted, while the Morse method transmits but 40 words a minute eveu at good speed. The process is described thus : Long strips of paper ar perforated by a machine constructed for that purpose, with apertures grouped to rep resent the letters of the telegraphic alpha bet. The strip thus prepared is placed in an instrument associated with a rheomotor or source of electric power, which, on being set in motion, moves it along and causes it to act on two pins in such a manner that when one of them is elevated, the current is transmitted to the telegraphic circuit in one direction, and wheu the other is elevat ed, it L transmitted in a reverse direction. The elevation and depressions of these pins are given by the apertures in the paper at intervals. These currents act upon a writ ing instrument at a distant station iu such ft manner as to produce corresponding marks on a sup oi paper moved bv anoroDnate mechanism. Thus the message is first punched out as described and the holes de termine the proper succession of currents. As the instrument works automatically the speed is very great compared to the contacts of the ordinary telegraph key when made by hand, and the messages can le sent over and over again to different places. KRExcii Affairs. That good old man the Couite de Cham- bord has beeu very much to the front lately. He is that ixisthumous son of the eldest son of Charles X of France, bom In 1820, who, sine Napoleon Ill's downfall at Sedan, has called himself and signed himself "Henri V." It is said that when Charles X laid down the crown iu IStO he uiu so in iavor oi me Utic i urieaus wlio placed it ou the head of his young nephew theCimte de Chambord for twelve days maintaing him true kiug of France. Jt was only for twelve days, but for twenty years he has represented the elder branch of the Bourbons, clung to the white banner of Navarre when hi Orie:init cousin 1'iig since substituted the tricolor, been an in teresting centre for speculation :tud Leg -timist rallyings, cherished the ftiiatical sUerstitions of the middle aes, refused to see that the world has advanced an inch, in short lived up to the old Napoleonic dic tum, "The Bourbons have forgotten nothing and learned nothing." There comes a dis patch froni Frohsdorff in Austria that this historical old person is dying. Quick his obituary is in type in every newspaper in the world waiting for the next telegram that he is dead when everybody will brush up his history of France, and re-focus the political spy-glass on the Comte de Paris, Louis Philippe's grandson but the death of Chambord tads t oeoo.-. The Comte is better, the Comte l v.-r-e. Dr. Vulpian sent specially to FrohsdortTto attend the Comte de Chambord reports that the patient's strength is slightly reviving. All the Orleanist Princes have gon j to visit the Comte de Cliambord. And then came a storm of electric guesses at what ailed this scion of so royal a line. He had rheuma tism, asthma, blood poisoning, a headache, gout. Then an affection of the stomach aud last of all it appears that the dear prince has over eaten himself, an I here is the royal bill of fare telegraphed from FrohsdorlT, cabled to America: two roasted chickens, two services of highly spiced salad, a huge quantity of vegetables, un speakable varieties of dessert and two bot tles Burgundy, a Iui seul ! Bravo Monsieur le comte ! THE LILY AND FREDDIE. Mrs. Langtry still lives and ha.s contided in a reporter that she still cherishes the de sign of coming to San Francisco, and eke of writing a book on American manners and customs. The Treasury Department's register shows that tha thrifty Lily has in vested money iu United States bonds, and this morning's dispatches tell that she boasts of not having expended a shilling on her travels. There is a rumor that she de signs slipping away secretly with young Gebhardt and that the Alaska will be the favored steamship. Gebhardt is putting his money into English sovereigns aud h:is sold his running horse Eole to Dwyer Bro thers. Gorgeous estimates are made of the sums he has expended for jewels for Lang try, 200,000 for this item alone, $2o,00J for a necklace, and 517,000 for bracelets alter nate sapphires and diamonds. The lavish little gentleman has mortgaged his good in come of $S0,000 a year for several years by his extravagances of this season, in spite of which efforts it is said Langtry is about to throw him over for "a very leading man," Frank Cooper. HARVARD AND VALE. By the way, the very day the last Honolulu steamship sailed, it was tele graphed that Harvard had won the University boat race rowed against Yale on the Thames at New London in Connecticut. There was a San Francisco man iu the Harvard boat, Charles M. Belshaw of '3:L It was such an easy victory for the crimson that everyone was surprised, for Yale the blue has been the favored up to the last. The result has raised the cry that Yale will have to abandon her present stroke, which is peculiarly short and jerky and calls for so much strain on the arms that the breast and bicept of the Yale crew seemed abnor mally developed. Yale crew also rowed bunched together iu pairs as they were last year, another cherished peculiarity which boating men say that they must abandon if they expect to win eight-oared shell races. Harvard's time was 2.:4C4, Yale's, 2G:"9. Harvard passed the finish too for ahead even to count the lengths. THE MARIPOSA. The Mariposa, the new island steamei which bears j'ou this letter, has attracted a great deal of attention in this city since her arrival, not alone because of the beauty, superb appointments and solid magnifi cence of the steamer, but because of the fact that it makes the beginning of a new era in the commercial and social relations be tween San Francisco and the Islands. On Monday evening last the steamer was pre pared for public inspection, and the occa sion turned out to be a brilliant affair, more in the nature of a reception than an inspection. Thv? steamer was lighted through with electric lights, and was visit ed by hundreds of prominent citizens with their ladies, the wharf being lined with carriages for a quarter of a mile. The offi cers of the Mariposa and the incorporators of the new Steamship Company were on hand and pleasantly received their guests. The visitors were delighted with the ele gance of the beautiful ship, and many ex pressions of envy of the distinguished pas senger list for the first trip, vere heard. Depend upon it, Island pleasure traveling is to receive a great Impetus from the advan tages offered by this new line. COMRADE. HONOLULU STOCK AND EXCHANGE. BOND SESSION. MONDAY, JULY rrH.

Mail all letters, eto., as rarly u prin-tica'ile, especially when sent in larc numbers, as is fre- I quetitly the ease with newspaers ami circulars'. ! The labor of the p t-ftiee is much diminished if , letters, when mailed in lare uumk-rs, are tied in j bundles, with the addresses all in uv direction. j 2. Make the address ou all foreign letterlejible and complete, giving the name f the post-omoe, and State, when addressed to the L'nited states. The iianiu of the street and number of the house should also be jdveu. where letter-carriers are em ployed ; while the letter will eventually reach its destination without a number, the omission is often cause of hesitation and delay. In the case of let ters for foreign countries, and especially in Canada, in which country there are many post-nflices hav ing the same names as post-offices in the United States and in England, the name of the country as well as the post-office should be given in full. Let ters addressed, for instance, merely to London." wTthout adding " England." are frequently sent to London, Canada, and rice rerun, thereby" causing delay, and often serious loss. Letters addressed to Burlington. N. S. (Xova Scotia), often go to Bur lington, New York, on account of the resemblance between S and V when carelessly written. 3. Always write the address'with ink, and not with pencil of any kind, as pencil marks often be come erased aud the address rendered illegible. 4. Avoid, as much as possible, using envelopes made of thin paper, especially where mora than one sheet of paper, or any other article thau paper, is enclosed. Being often handled and especially in the overland mail bags curried on horseback, such envelopes not unfrequently split open, giving cause of complaint against officials who are eutirely innocent in the matter. 5. Never send money or any other article of value through the mail, except either by means of a money-order or in a registered letter. 6. Postage stamps should be placed ou the tipper right-hand corner of the address-side of all mail matter. 7. The cutting of postage stamps in two or more pieces is prohibited, and no letter having a mutilated stamp on it will le forwarded. 8. Postage stamps are regarded as cash, aud the sale of them on credit is strictly prohibited. 9. Anything in addition to an address written or printed ou the address-side of postal cards renders them unmailable. 10. To insure a domestic letter being forwarded in the mails, it must have not iess than two centw in postage stamps affixed. If less than the full postage has been paid, double thf amount due must be paid by the party receiving it. 11. A subscriber to a newspajer or periodical, who changes his residence and pot-office, should at once notify the publisher of the change and have the publication sent to his new address. 12. 1'ubiishers and news agents mailing printed matter in quantities will facilitate its distribution, and often hasten its dispatch, by assorting such matter by States and Territories and the larger cities, if foreign, or by Islands, if domestic. 13. All inquiries, whether from postmasters or the public, relative to lost or missing mail matter of every description, both foreign and domestic, ordinary and registered, should be addressed to the General Post-Office, Honolulu, and losses or ir regularities should be reported as aoon as knowl edge is had of their occurrence. 14. Send all letters, newspapers aud small par cels to the post-office. As a rule, they will go safer and reach their destination more quickly in the mails thau when sent in auy other way. Most of the complaiuts about the non-receipt of letters are traceable to their being tsent by chance conveyance outside the mails. , 15.
