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.

Uates f Potae to t'omitrir lo and Out r thr j
S'estal luiou. !
1. 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. Domestic postal cards, costing one cent each,,
can be purchased at every post-ofilce. Also, two
cent postal cards, mailable to the United States,
Canada and Mexico ; aud three-cent postal cards,
mailable to any country in the Postal Union.
10. Double postal cards, called " return postal
cards," intended for an immediate reply to a cor
respondent will soon be prepared, the cost being 2
cents 1 cent for the inquiry card and 1 cent for the
return card.
17. Letters and papers addressed to persons re
siding in Honolulu should have the street and
number, or some other designated place of de
livery, as it is the purpose of the department to
establish letter carriers in Honolulu as soon as
practicable.
18. The issue of money-orders on credit is
strictly prohibited, and no money will be received
by a postmaster inpayment for money-orders is
sued, except that which is legal tender, or bank
checks, orders and certificates of deposit.
19. Letter boxes will le prepared as soon as
practicable, in all the post-offices in the Kingdom,
and all persons who are in regular receipt of let
ters and newspapers will find it greatly to their
convenience to have boxes.
20. A letter deposited in the mail can be re
called only by the writer, and then only on giving
a written receipt for the saiiic". After a letter leayes
the office where deposited it becomes the property
of the person to whom it is addrassed, or his legal
representative.
