pointed out that there is liability of

Chief Justice Frear is ' hard at
work upon a revision of the laws of
the Territory of Hawaii, which will
be presented to the Legislature for
action in February, in the form of
from eight to one hundred separate
bills with a recommendation for
their adoption. The need of an
entire revision of both the criminal
and civil laws of the Hawaiian Isl
ands has been very apparent since
the Organic Act went into effect,
but the failure of the-last Legis
lature to appoint a code commission
left the matter untouched with an
accompanying chaos which has had
the courts at sixes and sevens for
the past two years.
Chief Justice Frear is now pre
paring his biennial report to be
submitted by Governor Dole to the
Legislature, and the suggested new
laws, and changes in the old ones
will be supplementary to this re
port. There will also be important
recommendations as to changes in
court practice, in method of pro
cedure, and as Jto appropriations, all
of which subjects arc in earnest
ueed of attention.

San Francisco, Dec. 12. The
American - Hawaiian Company's
freight steamer California!!, built in
this port, has distinguished herself
by beating all her sister ships on
the run from New York, the actual
steaming time being 55 days, 12
hours and 43 minutes, counting
from her dock in Brooklyn to
quarantine grounds here. The
actual time between those points
was 57 days, 3 hours and 26
minutes, stops having been made in
the Straits of Magellan and at Cor
onel. Avet age weather was re
ported, but while in the straits a
blizzard obscured the land and the
big steamer had to lay-to one night.

Berlin, Dec. 16. Secretary Hay's
note excepting American ships
from certain restrictions of the
Venezuelan blockade is favorably
received by the German government.
The Foreign office treats the
matter as uot raising auj essential
difficulty and as being within pre
cedent, since Germany made a
similar reservation in the Cretan
blockade. The precise status of
American vessels under the block
ade will be defined in an official
Arrangement of Hlg duns.
The mountings for ship guns and
guns in coast fortifications are so
designed and constructed as to
throw iuto the power of one man,
in so far as possible, the whole con
trol of directing the gun at the
desired target and firing it when
ready, says the Engineering Magazine.
Electricity iu n Mine.
As coal costs a large sum per ton
delivered at the Trade Dollar mines
in Idaho, an electric transmission
plant has been built on Snake River,
where there was a natural fall of
ten feet. A crib dam was con
structed after considerable difficulty,
due to the velocity of the stream at
this point'. A building 44 feet by
140 feet runs lengthwise across the
stream at the dam. Six wheel pits
have been provided, though but
four are at this time in use. These
four contain each a seventy-two-inch
vertical turbine, operating under a
head of seventeen and one-half feet,
at a speed of seventy-eight revolu
tions per minute. These wheels
drive through bevel gears a jack
shaft from which the generators are
driven by belts. There are three
generators, each of 300 kilowatts
capacity, 500 volts, sixty-cycle, two
phase, running at a speed of 514
revolutions per minute,- The high
tension feeders leave the building
through a hard rubber tube four
feet long, inclosed in a seasoned
piece of timber six inches square
and three and one-half feet long,
which, in turn, passes through a
piece of marble thirty inches square
and one and one-half inches thick.
The pole line is thirty-two miles in
length. Round cedar poles, with
an average length of thirty-five feet,
are used throughout. The line is
of No. 4 hard drawn copper, the
wires being placed four feet four
inches apart in an equilateral tri
angle. Power is distributed to
various places in the company's
property. Motors are used in sizes
from two to one hundred horse
power, and have entirely supplanted
the steam equipment. New York

Washington Dec. 14. Mrs.
Ulysses S. Grant died at her resi
dence in this city at 11:17 o'clock
tonight. Death was due to heart
failure, Mrs. Grant having suffered
for years from valvular disease of
the heart, which was aggravated by
a severe attack of bronchitis. Her
age prevented her rallying from the
attacks. Her daughter, Mrs. Nellie
Grant Sartoris, was the only one of
her children with her at the time of
her death, her three sons, who had
been summoned here, all being out
of the city. There also were pres
ent at the bedside when the end
Icame Miss Rose Mary Sartoris, a
granddaughter; Dr. Bishop, one of
the attending physicians, and two
trained nurses. Death came peace
fully, the sufferer retaining con
sciousness practically to the end.
