Freedom of the press is not yet estab

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

Marshal Kaulukou has issued an or
der to the liquor saloons to close from
11 :30 o'clock p. m. Saturday, September

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
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

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
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

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
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.

to-day that the English Government

Suit to Recover lamjre on Seized
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
