THRUM Fort street WM. 8TRAHLMANN Hawaiian Hotel Five Cents per Copy. THURSDAY July 14th. Spain proposes to let all Cubans vote by the payment of $40 for the privilege. The labor agitations in Great Britain are assuming larger dimensions, particu larly in mining, iron-working and in the engineering trades. Never before has there been so much agitation among British workmen of all crafts with refer ence to emigration. ; A reporter for the San Francisco "Examiner" alleges that he got drunker than usual and got himself locked up in the Home for Inebriates, for the purpose of observing how they do things in that institution. He says he stayed there two weeks, and he takes over five col umns of space to tell his experiences. Another proposal is made to amend the Constitution of France by changing the method of electing Senators and sub mitting them to universal suffrage. This is the entering wedge for a proposition for the abolition of the Senate. If the change were accepted, France would have two representative bodies, both elected in the same way, and this ob vious superfluity would lead to the drop ing out of one. Sweden has become a great exporter of butter. The amount sent abroad last year was valued at more than $4,000,000. The Swedish dairies are- now worked upon the most improved s stems. Only skilled hands are employed in receiving the milk, separating and refining the cream, and churning the butter. The work is performed with the greatest care and cleanliness. The dairymaids re ceive a practical and theoretical training at dairy schools. - The looseness of the English civil ser vice is shown by the recent discovery that a pension has been paid for thirty five years after death of the person en titled to it. An officer retired from the customs service in 1845 at the age of 67, and lived for seven years afterwards. ilis widow went is usual for the money and received it during her own period o survival of twenty-three years ; and even then, when the deceased officer, had he lived so long, would have been 97, the daughter was enabled to enter into the inheritance without dificuHy, and enjoy it for twelve years. A President's Pardon. Thj President of the United States has acted upon the applications for the par don ol a number of convicted criminals. The most important case is that of Thos. Ballard, a notorious counterfeiter, who was sentenced January 21, 1875, to 30 years' imprisonment in the Albany peni tentiary. l he I're9iaent granted mm a pardon. He says the prisoner was sup posed to be one of the most expert coun terfeiters in the country. He had been in prison1 equal to more than fifteen years, allowing for the deduction he has secured for good behavior. He has grown to - be an old man, broken down physically and mentally. His conduct has been euch as to cause much interest to be felt in his case by many good citi zens, andthe officials who were con cerned in his conviction. His wife, who has clung to him with true woman's de votion all these years, and who has almost worn herself out in her efforts to support and educate her daughter, just now reaching womanhood, pleads for the erring and penitent husband's release. Then? is a universal belief on the part of those acquainted with the case that the prisoner's reformation is complete, and ! that in na circumstances could this j broken down man, whose mind is fast jiving away with his body, be a menace to society if liberated "I am of the opinion," says the President, "that in this case the laws have been fully vin dicated." , ' " Hawaiian Postal Matters. Washington, June 30. The biennial report of the Postoffice Department of Hawaii for the term closing last March inis been received at the Postoffice De partment, and is as interesting in postal statistics as TomThumb was to anato mists. i . There are but fifty-four pestoffices in King Kalakaua'fl entire realm, and the salaries are not exorbitant, a3 the Legis- Iature had to provide but $10,000 to pay all postmasters on the islands. Carrying tlie mails cost but $11,396. The use of the mails is steadily increas ing, but the number of native letters grows smaller every year, the increase coming from Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese that have been imported into the islands to work on the sugar planta tions. - The Hawaiian newspapers go free in the mails. The weekly average Hono lulu mail amounts to 10,000 papers, and 40,000 in the Kingdom, so that they seem to be fair patrons of the newspapers. A little over half a million letters are sent in the mails of the Kingdom an nually. There are 25 money-order of fices, the domestic remittances of which in two years were $234,000, fjr which the Government received fees amount ing to $1,818. The foreign remittances were $212,G00, and all were made through the New York Post Office, whether designed for any part of Europe or America. II. It. M.'s S. Conquest. Her Britannic Majesty's ship-of-war Conquest, under command of Captain Charles L. Oxley, arrived yesterday, 9 days from Esquimault, B. C. As soon as the vessel came near the entrance she saluted the Hawaiian flag, which was re sponded to by the shore battery a few minutes latter. The Conquest sailed from Esquimault July 2d; had foggy weather the first two days; thence pleas ant weat her to port. She is a steel cor vette, cased with wood, of 2,380 tons. Her engines are 2,670 horse-power, capa ble of steaming 14 knots an hour, and together with sail can attain a speed of 16 knots. The Conquest wa3 built on the Clyde in 1878, and is one of the fast est corvettes in the British navy. She carries fourteen 64-pounder guns, which can throw a shell 2,000 yards; 6 Nordenfeldt guns, 4 Gardner guns, six Whitehead torpedoes, two torpedo guns and two field pieces. The rifles used are the Martini-Henry. There are also two steam launches, which can be used for carrying torpedoes. She has a ram extending from the bow six feet. The Conquest, as soon as she came to an anchorage, was boarded by the offi cer on guard from the U. S. S. Adams, who came to pay his respects to Captain Oxley. Her Britannic Majest3''s Com missioner and Consul General, Major J. H. Wodehouse, soon after visited the Conquest, and on his returning received the customary Salute of thirteen guns. Acting British Vice Consul T. Rain Wal ker paid a visit later in the evening. The Conquest will probably remain in port about a month.. The following is a list of officers : Captain, Charles L.

R., after a long dis. cussion a resolution was adopted on the subject of petitioning the United States Congress to pass a new pension bill, granting $12 per month to all who served more than three months in the army and navy of the United States, during the late war, and who are now totally disabled, from whatever cause, except their own vicious habits. Should the bill pass Congress, it will relieve quite a number of veterans who are dependent on the towns where they reside.

What may be done at any time will be done at no time. The young man who sang "How Can I Leave Thee?" left her very sud denly when the bull-dog came tearing round the house. A vise has been invented with flex ible rubber cushion or muffler between the jaws, "which renders saw-tiling noiseless.'" N. Y. Tribune. An Australian has invented an elec trical machine-gun which he claims is capable of firing 120 rounds every few seconds, from any position and in any direction. The discovery of a network of so called canals on ,he planet Mars by Schiaparelli several years ago, has been confirmed this year by observers both in England and Italy. A button which works on the prin ciple of a cork-screw is the last novelty out, and the patentee was offered $25, 000 for his rights the moment he had the first button out. Detroit Free Press. Wilmington, Vt.. is nearly in the center of the largest maple sugar mak ing section in the world. The largest maker there ships ten thousand gallons of sirup Yearly, and the business is growing fast. Reports from many places show that the electric railway is no longer an ex periment, but a fact. It will be a long time before we travel like lightning, but to travel by lightning will soon be a prac tice on many a New England street rail:vay. The winter packing in the West last year was 6,300,000 hogs; the average for the past five years is 6,010,000; for the preceding period of five years, 6,59,0,000, and for ten years. 6.300,000, the latter number corresponding with last winter s total. The new Reitz alloy, the patented production of a German chemist, is a bronze for which remarkable durability and resistance to all acids are claimed, prolonged exposure to concentrated muriatic acid having caused less than half the loss sustained by any other alloy, and other tests having been equally suc cessful. On the Transcaspian railroad, in Russia, it is claimed that a saving of $800 per mile is effected by the use of mineral wax, or ozokerite, for ties. When purified, melted and mixed with limestone and gravel, the ozokerite, which is abundant in the vicinity of the railroad, produces a good asphalt. This is pressed into shape in boxes, and gives ties which retain their form and hard ness even in the hottest weather. A steam engine that runs the elec tric light system in the works of the Portland, (Me.) Stoneware Company is tmilt on an entirely new principle. It has no piston rod, and is surprisingly compact, the one at the pottery occupy ing a space 16x19 inches, eighteen inches in height, yet it does with ease the or dinary work of a ten-horse power en gine of the old pattern. The cost of construction a estimated to be about one-third less than that of an ordinary horizontal or upright engine. Boston ' Budget. PUNGENT PARAGRAPHS. "It is estimated that over 500,000 alligators are killed annually for their skins. Dr. Johnson once, speaking of a quarrelsome fellow, said: "If he had two ideas in his head they would fall out with each other." A correspondent asks: "Is it wrong to cheat a lawyer?"

Fugitive verse, nowadays, Peronella, that which makes the author a fugitive from avenging editors. . : THE SORGHUM CROP. Rome Popular Direction for Sorghum Cul ture In the Western States. Sorghum requires reasonably good soil, rather lierht than heavv. and if w - ' manured, only well rotted stable ma nure should be used. I always prefer to take time to thoroughly clean up and pre pare the land before planting. It makes at best only a slim growth at first and it requires good treatment in order to secure a good start. It is a small plant at' first and weeds, stalks or other trash will interfere considerably with the work of planting and cultivating. The land can be cleaned up and plowed ahead whenever the work can be done to the best advantage; care should be taken to plow thoroughly and harrow until in as good a condition as possible. There is nothing gained in planting the seed too early, a better plant ana a better growth will be secured if the seed is not planted until the soil is thor- oughly warmed up; I find this generally to be from the first to the tenth of Ma3r, sometimes you can plant earlier but not often. Mark out the r - as shallow as possible; but little covering is needed, and if the furrows are run out too deep the plants will be more difficult to cultivate. A very slight covering is needed, just so the seed is covered, is all that is necessary. I prefer to plant in drills, mark out the furrows about three or thref and a half feet apart and scatter the seed as even as possible along the rows. Care should be taken in this re spect. A good stand implies a strong vigorous plant at least every six inches in the rows and careful planting is nec essary to secure this. Some time can be gained bysoaking the seed a day be fore planting, that is if the seed is to be planted by hand. We have planters very convenient for this, but if you have not this implement, with a little care you can plant very evenly by hand. The worst difficulty in hand planting is the risk of scattering in the row and making the cultivation more difficult. After trying various plans of covering, I am satisfied that all the necessary covering can be given with a good flat rock, attach a horse and drive so that the rock will cover the furrows; a very lightcoveringis all that is necessary, and care should be taken not to cover too deep. If the furrows have been run in shallow as they should be, jou can com mence the cultiAration with the harrow very soon after the plants have made their appearance above ground. This will destroy all the weeds that are almost certain to start up, and at the same time loosen up and fine the surface. Generally two harrowings can be given with profit, after which the cultivator should be used. I regard it as essential that the cultivating at the start should be thorough. A good start to grow is very necessary and this can only be secured by giving thorough cultivation at the start; generally two harrowings and four cultivations is all that will be necessaiy, unless the land is very foul and one hoeing may often be given with profit, cutting out the weeds and plants between the plants. All the cultiva tion should be given at the earlier stages of growth. After a good start has been secured, the plants will gen erally make a rapid growth with very little trouble. ' Reasonabty clean cultivation is neces sary. You can not secure a good crop of sorghum and a good crop of weeds at the same time and if the weeds are kept down at the start until the plants get well started, very little labor will be required to keep reasonably clean. For early the Early Amber is the best variety and Early or Kansas Range the next. N. J. Shepherd, in Elkader (la.) Farmer and Breeder. Comments by a Drummer. 'Commercial travelers are not the free- J iidng lords of creation that humorist writers are accustomed to describe. As a class, I believe, they earn the lowest salaries of - any responsible element of the commercial community. If you were to size up the entire membership of any of the traveling men s associa tions, I think you would find that the average salary would not be more than $1,000 a year. Some few get $2,000 ana expenses, ana a very small number run over that amount. They are worked without consideration of health or cir cumstances, and the systematic manner in which their accounts are audited will not permit a very wide range from the actual expense account. Knocking down is out of the question, and while you may be able to conceal shaving and bootblack work in sundries, you can nf)t go beyond that without provoking inquiry. A single man can probably gave $40 a month on personal living ex penses by being on the road, but-he must pay room rent in. the city while he is away. A married man estimates his savings on household expenses while on the road at about $25 a month, and thOis the very best that he can do. Economy teaches him to live close at home and abroad.
