The house is crowded every night and many are turned a,way. There have I been forty conversions and thir.y four additions to the church up to Monday night, and many are still inquiring the way.

Small-pox is a dangerous epi demic if not properly treated and the fact that it is breaking out in many parts of tbe country, especially in Indiana.

Vaccination and re vac ?cinai.'on. properly done, with re liable virus, is a certain preven tive, and is entirely free from danger This is the conclusion of the scientific world, after foil investigation and large experi ence, and may be thoroughly re lied upon. Notwithstanding that t his safe cheap and perfect protection is within reach of all, it is estimat ed that futly one-bal* of the peo ple of ibis State have never ava 'ed themselves of it. Intel ligent persons should not wait for the law to force, them to an evident duty. No one should al low himself, or any one for whom he is responsible, to remain un vaccirated at any t'mc. and especially in the . face of present danger.

Queen Liliuokalnni ami her advisors plot, for tho overthrow of tho Hawaiian Constitution of 1887. II. The most intelligent and progressive part of tho popula tion revolts. ovorthrows tho mon arch, and establishes a provision al Government. III. Tho Provisional Govern ment welcomed bv General Mar rlson, is recognized by Mr. Cleve land. for he appoints a Minister to it and issues exequaturs to its Consuls. IV. This Provisional Govern ment, prevented by Mr. Cleve land's act from concluding a treaty with tho United States, is in a sound financial condition and maintaining public order when V. Mr. Cleveland decides that is mist be overthrown. Thus the United States are to be a party to the restoration of a monarchy which foil as a result of royalists plots against tho Constitution of 188?; and tho Qrteenis to be put back into the position from which she was dls loged by a revolution represent ing the civilization of the islands, and caused by a just apprehension of illegality and violence on tho part of the Queen herself. Supposing that the great com mercial and navul importance of the Hawaiian Islands to the United States did not exist, leuv tfteu. out of cpnsiderat'on alto gether, what call and what justi fication could this country tind for using its power to crush a fi.-m and stable government, lViii.ided just as our own Govern ment was founded, upon a revolt against mononarcbiai;agg > ession. Wliotrxnte Arrests. West,Virginia, has for several years led the United States so far as the number of prosecutions for illicit liquor selling ure con cerned, aad the following from this week's Huntington Adverti-.er certainly shows that she is keep ing up her record: "Two hundred aud ten more moonshiners and witnesses, un der guard of fifty or more United States deputy marshals arrived here Sunday night over the p.untin<?ton and Big Sandy rail road from points on the line of 'the Norfolk and Western railroad They were housed at the Mer-. chants, Miller and Huntington hotels, until tnis morning when they were hustled out to the Chesapeake and Ohio depot and shipped on to Charleston for trial before tjie United States Court now it> session. This last contingent will swell the representation of revenue violators already under arrest to upwards of five hundred.The ex pense incurred in the arrest and prosecution of these men is some thing tremendous. Some of the parties arrested and brought in are in a pitiable condition. Seven women accom panied the party brought down Sunday. They are held as wit nesses, and are wives of the par ties under arrest" Mr. Harry Smith Freeman and bride, of Lincoln, Nebraska, were given a most elaborate reception at the home of bis parents Mr. and Mrs. W.
