Reformation should be the sequel. .Will the present be chronicled by future historians as the period of "The Reformation?" That is a problem which the pages of the next Hansard will solve. If the Reform party are victorious along their whole line, yet the next Legislature will not be without an Op position party. This prediction is war ranted by parliamentary experience throughout the world. Whether parties coalesce, or whether the monopoly of power is secured by one, still there is that in human nature an element of combativeness which precludes the possibility of prolonged unanimity in politics, or in aught else. Probably at no time previously have Hawaiian affairs attracted so much at tention from the outside world. Dis torted as facts may become by the acci dents of transmission, or by design, yet the great central fact remains that there exists in a tolerably advanced state of civilization a Kingdom called Hawaii. To old residents this may seem like a platitude, but those who have traveled will not be loth to realize that the es tablishment of that fact in commercial centers far remote from this is a distinct gain. To what proportion of the civil ized world has Hawaii hitherto been aught but a name? And what is the proportion now? Data are wanting, but could we see ourselves in the same ratio of social, commercial and international importance as others see us, to what depths of relative insignificance might we not descend ? Nevertheless, we are men of like passions with the world at large amenable to the same temptations, at liberty to pursue the same aspirations. Numerical disparity does not necessarily involve moral and intellectual disparity. CONVICT RECLAMATION. The differences in men are not wiped out by their fall into crime or mistohune. Some can rally again and reinstate their characters or their fortunes, while others stay down. So the ranks of the indigent and the criminal offer always an inviting field to the good-hearted who are mind ful of the weaknesses of humanity and sympathetic in its misfortunes, for in those ranks are many poor, who, slightly helped, will soon be self-supporting, and many fallen in crime who can be strengthened forward to reform. Our prisons are filled with the corrigible and the incorrigible. The law makes no dis tinction between them, for at the end of sentence each walks out free and warden and turnkey let them pass, as they muvt not distinguish between the one who has his mind's eye on a criminal job, to which his hand will be turned in a few hours, and the other who peers into a frowning world, wondering if it will let him earn honest bread and eat it in peace. Under our prison system, reform must be largely self-impelled, for there is not much chance to prepare for honest self support after the gates are passed. In a few hours hunger begins to press and gnaw. We have hunger in common with tho blasts that perish, and if there is no honest chance to assuage it we do as the beasts do, take what we want from those who have it. They won't let it be earned, so they must expect to have it stolen. In some of the Statea the processes of reform are begun and elf-support is provided for as Boon as the convict begins to do liU time. De pendent uion good conduct and works meet for repentance, he is promoted until he is taken out of the actual prison and enters a reformatory institution, which is a world in miniature. Here are trades to be learned and practiced, schools to attend, religious exercises to share, cares for and interest in others, nothing being omitted which belongs to virtuous and upright contact between fellow-men. In such a life their crim inal experience falls into receding per spective, and is dimly recalled like a sickness long passed by. Every virtuous purpose is strengthened, manhood is encouraged, evil appetites succumb to the discipline of disuse, and the convict feels that he is again a man for whom the world has a place in its earnest and useful work. It is carefully estimated that every man so reclaimed saves to the State $5,000. S. F. Alta. re is in ad r." ed in fa ut !s tn S it To.nizht Concert.

The president, it is said, has yielded to the advice of his friends, and will take to Horse manship as a means of exercise. Secretaries Bayard, Lamar, Whitney, and Fairchild have described to him the benefit they derive from Dquestrianism, and he has consented to join them in some of their ga lops across the coun try. Secretary Bayard ride3 a big bay horse with banged tail, and every fair cf ternoon he joins Secretary Fairchild or George Ban croft, the venerable historian, in a canter through the soldiers' home and the adjacent roads. Secretary Whitney usually rides with a party of young people, and none of them enjoys a spurt more than he does. Secretary Lamar directs his horse to be saddled and at his office every clear afternoon at 4:30 o'clock, from whence ho explores the surrounding country until it is time to return home for iinner. Mrs. Cleveland is said to be delighted with tho idea of her husband taking to horseback riding, and she promises to join him in the ' sport. She has attended both of the recent paper chases," and is ambitious to join some of tho gay rising parties which are constantly being made up in society. A well known New York instructor in horsemanship, who is now in this city, has formed a large class in fashionable circles, which has given quite x boom to horseback riding. The seal browns ire not well adapted for saddle horses, and ' early additions to the White Rouse stables aaay be looked for. Baltimore Sun. Willing to Do JJetter.

' For Preserving Ship's Record. Chieago Times. An ingenious contrivance for preserv ing the records of ships lost . at sea has been invented by a Mr. Duncan Sinclair, a resident of New Zealand. It consists of an inner and outer case, the lower ends of which are open and connected by a plate iu the form of a ring. This has a cork, filling and a separable tube attached at its lower end to a cap plate screwing into the bottom ring-shaped plate. The Magnet Cure. New Orleans Times-Democrat. The use of the magnet for the cure of diseases was known to the ancients. It was known to Aetius, who lived as early as the year 500. He says: M We are as sured that those who are troubled with the gout in their hands or feet, or with convulsions, find relief when they hold a nagnet. n Sltorttsfnunts.
