The TJmted HtaUs will Dot annex Hawaii, at least not for tome ti me to come. If tbe com mlslocen of the provisional government of Hawaii, who are now to Washington are author ized to negotiate a treaty whereby the protection of tbe United Stutes will be thrown over the republic of Hiwali, the president and hU cabinet are prepared to Rive it to them, and, although the sentl ment in congress srcnis to favor immedi ate auiuxatiou, there will be no difficulty in cettlnir such a treaty confirmed by the Semite. The assuming of a protectorate over Ha waii by the United Statei will,' ot coarse, be the Brat Hep towardi ultimate annextlon, but there are numerous reasons why It will be more advisable than precipitate annexation. It would give the people of that country control of their own affairs, and at the same time, the powerful protection ot this country, and wbeu (hey have had suffic ient experience in the duties of citizen ship under a republican foim of govern ment, annexation will naturally follow, to tbe advantage of all concerned. Few measurers ever iielore congress have been more talked about and more abused than tbe anti-option till, which was this week passed by the senate, by a vote of 40 to 29. The bill now goes to the home for concurrence In the senate amendments, and Its final fate is still con sidered doubtful, as some of the shrewd est parliamentary Jugglers on the floor of the house are its sworn enemies, and will, If they ar given an opportunity, lie the bill up so tight that the knots cannot be untied before the 4th ot March. A rumor was floating around a day or two ago to the effect that assurances had been received by soino of the opponents of the bill that it would be vetoed, if it ever got to the white house. Although most of those who favor it have abandoned the hope of getting 'the bill for the repeal of the silver law through at this session of congress, it is evident that Mr. Cleveland hat not, for this week he tent Don Dickinson V) Washington to inform the democrats who still decline to support the bill, thai ua- lena the bill it passed at this session he will call an extra session to meet within thirty days of his Inauguration, and will make no appointments to office until the bill is passed. This message Is aaid to have encouraged tbe anti-silver men to believe that the house will pass the bill when It cornea up on tbe 0th and 10th of Ibis month, but Mr. Carlisle, who la work log tbe senate end, has only sbeceeded in getting postive promises of support from ten democratic senators.

A bird's nesting adventure that emsoej near ending Id a tragedy is described by Capt Bendlro la s monograph on the birds of North America, issued by the Smithsonian institution and thai National museum jointly, says the Washington Star. The captain was riding along the banks of RUlitto creek, Arizona, one fine day In the year 187S, when he saw a big black hawk. Ho followed the bird, and at a distance ot about five miles from camp he found it perched on a dead limb of a tall Cot tonwood tree. On n earing the tree he discovered s balky nest placed In a fork close to the main trunk, and about forty feet from the ground. The mate of the hawk which he had been follow ing was sitting on the nest. ( With the Intention of robbery, the captain climbed up to the nest, in which he found a single pale blue egg, the parent birds meanwhile circling around and manifesting their anger by shrill screams. He put the egg, which was as big aa n hen'a egg, into hlr mouth, and. was about to descend, when he caught sight from his elevated perch of several Apache Indiana crouched down in a little canyon about eighty yards distant They were evidently watching him. It was a case where the only chanQe of safety lay in presence of mind.' Without exhibiting any signs of having made the alarming discovery, the cap tain proceeded to descend in as leisure ly a manner as possible, still retaining the egg in his mouth. If he had mani fested symptoms of being in a hurry, ths Indians would hve peroelved that they were spied, and they would have been waiting for the egg hunter at ths foo4 of the tree before he could get down. In that ease death by torture of fiend ish Ingenuity would doubtless have been his fate. As it was, he reached the ground in safety, mounted his horse, aavd started for camp, la an instant the Apaches were site him, and they ehaeed him nearly to ths eamp before, abandoning ths pursuit. Ho got there all right, however, with the egg la his saouth. It was unbroken. Owtng to its large siae the captain had great dlffloulty In getting it out of his mouth without injuring It, but he final ly succeeded, though, aa he aaya, his Jaws ached for some tints afterwards. It is now included in the Smithsonian soologlesl ooUeotloo. ' W rity Hire Creaia of Tartir Powder. No Atuiaonia; No Air.' ' " ia iVIililcas of TIosics in Yws the. Stmd;ii s.ejss'-'" L r.m
