A DVKRTrSKK, ' And not to Individuals. THURSDAY : September 8th There is a boom in the matrimonial market. "We came here to make Hawaii oar homes, and are decidedly in favor of re form," say a number of men who cannot go back to the States. Freedom of the press is not yet estab lished in Japan. A number of leading newspapers have been temporarily sus pended for criticising the policy of the Government. Such action would not work here. The "Bulletin" says that horse steal ing appears to be prevalent in some of the suburban districts, judging from complaint. It is to be hoped the cul prits will be brought to justice. At the Police Court yesterday a man was f3ned only $10 for embezzling monies, the property of his employer. Surely this is no adequate deterrent to evil-doers. So light a penalty is a source of encour agement rather than otherwise. Marshal Kaulukou has issued an or der to the liquor saloons to close from 11 :30 o'clock p. m. Saturday, September 10th, to 5 o'clock a. m. Wednesday, Sep tember 14th. We shall not expect to see any drunks up before His Honor on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday morn ings. A new movement has been started in Chicago among the workingmen, founded on the principles of harmony and co-operation between employers and employes opposed to strikes and all labor demon strations not in harmony with civil gov ernment. To that end an organization known as the Progressive Order of Amer ican Workmen has been organized under the laws of the State. Business men, employes, workingmen, and, in fact, all person opposed to strikes are invited to fraternize ir the new society for their own mutual good. The rules of the or der prescribe that all workingmen shall endeavor to adjust their difficulties with their employers, and failing in that, the matter shall be referred to the Council, who will endeavor to settle all difficulties by. arbitration. So far 150 men have joined the order, and the members are confident of establishing a successful league. Efforts will be made in the near future to establish Councils all over the United States. THE LAW OF LIBEL IN ENGLAND. A bill to amend the law of libel as regards newspapers was issued in Eng land August 6th. It provides, shortly, that any newspaper report of proceed ings of public meetings and of certain bodies and persons are privileged. In any action for libel against a newspaper the defendant shall be at liberty to give certain evidence in mitigation of dam ages. If any action is brought against a newspaper, application may be made by the defendant to obtain security for his costs. The bill also lays down that, on a prosecution for libel, it must be shown that the person proceeded against was privy to the publication of the-libel. A. Too Polutexl Joke. A wity clown, by .name Durow, has just been compelled to leave St. Peters burg for carrying jokes too far. He was giving a performance with a pig trained to various feats. At the man's command the animal took up from, the ground a number of Russian coins, including im perials and small silver s.nd copper coins. When, however, some rouble notes were thrown down; the pig refused to pick them up, even though whipped. Great fctnusemeni was caused by this dis criminating act, and it was intensified as a voice cried from tho gallery to the clown, "You blockhead, if the Finance Minister could not raise the paper rou iW in four months,howcan you expect a pig to do it." Though a favorite with St. Petersburg audiences the clown receiver orders to leave the city the following day.- London Times, August 6th. . . fiusiiie Company No. 2. The regular meeting of Engine Com pany No. 2 was held last evening. A bill was read and referred to the Finance Committee. Jas. L. Torbert, who was recently elected Second Assistant Fore mjin, was installed, and made appro priate remarks. The other business transacted was of the usual routine character. LATE NEWS. London, August 25th. The Queen ar rived to-day at Balmoral. No European ruler, except the Czar, is so guarded when journeying as the Queen. A cor respondent at Osborne gives the follow ing account of the methods adopted to guard against accident: The Royal party crossed from the private pier to Gosport and by way of Stafford, Car lisle and Perth to Ballater in a special train of day and night saloons provided by the London and Northwestern Rail way Company. The regulations for Her Majesty's journey filled several foolscap pages, including time tables, which oc cupied two pages. Specified regulations were provided for the pilot engine, ac companied by the locomotive superin tendents of the particular districts trav eled over and by a guard with lamps, flags and fog signals. The pilot engine proceeded the Royal train at a uniform rate of speed and fifteen minutes in ad vance. The drivers and firemen, as well as engines for the Royal train, were sDeciallv selected. A lookout was placed on the tender of the engine and seated with his face toward the engine to observe any signal that might be given by the occupants. For thirty minutes previous to the Queen's coming no train was permitted to proceed upon, or cross the main line, the pilot engine alone excepted. On the up line also it was commanded that drivers must reduce their speed to ten miles an hour, and on no account to whistle when passing Her Majesty's train. In this manner the Queen went across England. The monster engine rushed by fifteen minutes afterwards. The lights of the Queen's train flashed past, and then, after a pause, the hand of discipline was partly relaxed and the line assumed its normal condition. The Queen was supplied with a special time-table, printed elegantly in mauve on thick white paper, bordered in gold and surmounted by the Royal arms. The time-table showed the hours of ar rival and departure, the duration of each stop and the distance between the sta tions. The time was regulated by, Her Majesty's wishes, signified beforehand. London, August 25th. It is expected that there will be serious times in Ireland after the adjournment of Parliament All of the Irish members expect to be prosecuted and imprisoned. Harrington Secretary of the National League, told me to-dav that the prosecution of - O'Brien, he believes, would result in conviction and six months' imprison ment, although he was not being prose cuted under the Coercion Act. Said he "We expect prosecutions and are pre pared to go to prison in asserting our rights. Our imprisonment will only has ten Home Rule. It will probably cause a revolt amoner the Democracv of Eng w v land. Parnell has been in Ireland ad vising the lead ere for the last three days He returned to London this evening. He is the only one of the Irish members who dreads imprisonment, and that is nwina- to the feeble condition of his health." Nooalks. A. T.. Ausrust 20th For more than two months there has been a crcnt. fatal itv amoncr the residents of ro - - Hermsillo and Guaymas, and also in other towns and cities in Mexico, from a disease called "Sardinia fever." This fever is a good deal like Tonto fever, but is more painful to the patient. The Mexicans say it is caused by the wash ing ashore of dead fish, and that medical attention will not arrest its ravages. The physician's explanation of the disease agrees with those of the natives, that it is caused by the washing ashore of a great number of small fish, and the name given the fish was sardines, hence the name. Salt Lake City, August 20th. The remains of the late John Taylor were ex humed to-day and placed in a massive granite sepulchre, which had been pre pared for them. The vault is built of large blocks of granite, girded together by steel bolts. The remains of Taylor and one of his wives were placed in the vault, and a capstone weighing tour and a half tons placed on it. Only the mem bers of the family were present. New York, August 17th. Sir John Thurston, who has been in the British service for 22 years, and is now Commis sioner for the Western Pacific, as well as Lieutenant Governor of Fiji, is at pres ent stopping at the Windsor Hotel. He ros to Saratoga in a few-days. He stated to-day that the English Government have no intention of seizing the -Hawaiian Island, and admitted tha America had a much greater claim. When asked if the Fiji Islands still persisted in can nabalism, the L:eutenant Governor laughed and sanl that ho did not think so. f?He ?aid that the Fir Tsian Is are most ?ro;:-jr rous, and that Fiji Las a popula tion of over 130,000, 120,000 of whom are natives. He is heartily opposed to any interference froi-: i-Vance and Ger many in the affairs of the islands, and "ays that, although England does not want any more islands, she does not want them run in the interest of France and Germany. Suit to Recover lamjre on Seized Opium. The S. F. "Examiner" of August 2Gth has the following : E. W. McLean has brought suit in the United States Circuit Court against Col lector Hager. Plaintiff claims that on November 13, 18S5, he purchased at Ho nolulu, from the Hawaiian Government , 1 ,000 5-tael boxes of prepared opium ; that said opium was manufactured in San Francisco, exported hence to Hono lulu, where it was seized, condemned and gold to plaintiffs; that on November 14, 18S5, it was shipped on the Mariposa to San Francisco and marked "in transit" to Panama ; that it was entered in the manifest and indorsed on the bill of lad ing as "in transit." Plain tiff further al leges that on the arrival of the Mariposa at San Francisco, Collector Hager, on November 25, 1885, refused to permit the opium to be transferred from" the Mari posa to Colima for transhipment to Pa nama unless the duties were first paid to the United States. On plaintiff's de clining to pay said duties, the opium, he states, was seized and held until Janu ary 6, 1887, when it was sold at auction for non-payment of duties. The value of the opium, plaintiff claims, was $3,000. He seeks $4,000 damages. y ' y The N. O. Wilder. The new American barkentine S. G.
