It is tlie very mad- ness ofnthoimoon to BUppoBe that the coorclpji .scheme could succeed or that the naj(vea would be better off If , ,yere sure. The organic law Droteqts, (the Government from "'stoppage; and If that protection were possible to overcome, there would bet a, summary interference by Congress 'in "behalf of the Territory to ordain future' Isjftnd rule by the responsible classes, hat a Wilcox Senate could not 'hold up the Territorial Government1 if It tried to is proved by the organic act. A part of Section 0 reads as follows: "All persons holding office in the Hawaiian Islands at the time this -act takes effect shall continue to hold their respective, offices until their successors ore 'appointed and qualified, but not beyond the end of the first session of the Senate of tho Territory of Hawaii unless reappointed as herein provided." Another' section gives the Governor the right of appointment when the Senate is not In session. Thus if no successors are nppolnted and qualified the Hawaiian Executive may, after the , adjournment of the Legislature, reappoint the old Incumbents. Supposing the Legislature should wlthhold'np propriatlons for salaries the game would still be In the Governor's hands. Witness Sec. 54 of the Organic law which reads as follows: "That MEXICO AND SILVER, gg ft& T. 8. Van Dyke, an eminent writer of Southern California, lias taken up the question of Mexican prosperity under free silver In n way that mnkes him a public benefactor. To thoso who may have been Impressed by the article In the Initial number of the Hawaiian Democrat upon Mexican prosperity, we commend a reading of Mr, Van Dyke's thesis: "Nothing in the llfo of Mr. Uryan ever occaxne mm like the blinding flush of silence that marked his return from three yearn ago," said Mr. Van Dyke. "Jle unnounced with a grand flourish ot trumpets that ho was going thero to study tho sliver question. Ho has mado no announcement yet of his conclusions. Tho great peculiarity of tho stiver question was tho number of falso statements, both of theory and fact, that passed current so long without bolng questioned. And foremost among these was tho one that the Mexican dollar would still buy as much of the products of that country as ever It did, although It would buy only half of Iho quantity of Imported articles that it once did.

Tho latter fought for several hours until their ammunition was exhausted and they were overpowered and surrender ed, relief being impossible. At- least four of the soldiers were killed, among whom, nccordlng to reports, was captain Shields. The Americans also had several wounded. Lieutenants He I ft nnd Hates, on board the Yorktown, left Manila Monday, After gathering troops at Batangas they proceeded to Murlnduque to verify the reportH regnrdlng the fate of Captain Shields and his men and In case the native rumors were well founded to punish the rebels nnd release the captives.
