THRUM - Fort street WM. STRAHLMANN... Hawaiian Hotel Five Cents per Copy. SATURDAY : : : September 17th ' So far not a single Independent candi date has been elected. The Kinau is due this morning with Maui and Hawaii election news. There is no doubt but the Reform ticket has been successful. Kauai- yesterday by the James Makee shows that the Opposition candidates had not a ghost of a chance. A married woman, a membei of the Salvation Army, was recently heavily fined at Los Angeles for cruelty to her children by neglecting them while en grossed with the Army doings. It is stated that Chamberlain and Goschen are engaged in preparing a wholesale Land Purchase Bill, which "will be introduced at the end of the ses sion of the British Parliament, and which is to be the Unionist bonne bouche after coercion. An ingenious way of che eking the horse-stealers, which are the plague of the Baltic provinces, has been adopted by the Courland authorities. They have supplied all rural police agents and other village functionaries with albums containing the portraits of all notorious horse-stealers of the province and of their accomplices, with detailed particu lars of their residence, and notes of the cases in which they have been involved. The albums contain 807 portraits of per sons of many different nationalities. Since the police have been in possession of the albums it appears that horse stealing has been far less frequent, the thieves having become more careful, since eacn ot tneni may oe mciuueu among the portraits. Sugar growers in the Philippines are in a bad way indeed. Recently 200,000 tons of that article had been yearly ex ported from the islands until the heavy fall in prices set in. Many growers since then hold back their produce as long as possible in the vain hope of quotations improving. The people in the planting districts are consequently becoming im poverished, and the volume of trade shows a considerable falling off. The Government is trying hard to improve matters and help the planting commu nity in every way. The recent reduc tion of the sugar export duty in the Philippines by 20 per cent is merely a preliminary measure to be followed by others in the interest of the decaying in dustry in question.

Well Our readers will remember that about four years ago two brothers named Rhodus dropped into this community, and soon got into favor with people. One of them, Alfred, shot a native in a disreputable house and was sent on the reef. After serving his sentence he went to the States, and his career since then has been a bad one. By the last steamer we learn he has been trying to black mail a prominent Oakland merchant. A warrant was taken out, but he fled from the city, and it is supposed went to St. Louis where his parents reside. The San Francisco "Chronicle" has recently published an interview with a Mr. Andrews, who knew Rhodus well. The following we clip, which will interest our readers : "I have heard, Mr. Andrews, that Rhodus, while in Honolulu some years ago, stole a large quantity of opium out of the Customs warehouse. Did you ever hear him say anything about that?" "Yes, he boasted to me of that tran saction, and the knowledge that he was engaged in that steal and was proud of it, was one of the things that opened my eyes to the man's true character. The circumstances were these : A safe filled with smuggled opium had been seized bv the Customs officers from some Chinamen and placed in a Government warehouse, where it was guarded by several officials. These watchmen had no fear of anybody stealing a big safe, and went to sleep over their task. Rhodus knew about this opium, and he and a friend of his managed to steal it in this way: When the watch men were asleep Rhodus and his partner entered the warehouse, and by means of crowbars rolled the safe into an empty car, loosened the brakes and let the car run dow;n the grade two or three miles along . the beach, when they stopped it and dug a hole in the sand directly under the car door. They rolled out the safe, dropped it into the hole and covered it up . with sand. Then loosening the brakes again they let the car run on, while they returned to the city. One moonlight night about a month later they went down there with chisels and hammers, and, after several hours' labor they succeeded, as he told me, in opening the safe, in which they found about 100 pounds of opium, on which they realized $30 per pound it was soia to a ncn Uhinaman, who paid for it, Rhodus said, all in Mexican dollars, which Rhodus bore away in a gripsack. Knowing that he was an ob ject of suspicion in the Islands, he did not dare to be found with so much money, after having been dead-broke and seedy-looking for months. So he left the gripsack and contents at the res taurant where he had been boarding, telling the proprietor the sack was full of mineral specimens and must not be disturbed. It lay under a table for a week or more, when Rhodus managed to get his Mexican money changed to American gold." I0LANI PALACE. Audience au.1 Ireeiitatioii Itlnsr. lo the Friday at noon there was a Royal audience and presentation to His Maj esty the King at Iolani Palace. At the audience His Excellency Hon. Godfrejr Brown, Minister of Foreign Affairs, pre sented Major J. II. Wodehouse, II. B. M. Commissioner and Consnl General. Major Wodehouse then presented Com mander Jasper E. T.

The monster bell for the Cathedral of Cologne has just been inaugurated with great pomp. It weighs 27,000 kilos, or about 26 tons 13 cwt. Tee clapper alone weighs 800 kilos, or nearly 15 cwt. Its perpendicular height is almost l-i? feet, its diameter at the mouth nearly ll4 feet. Twenty-two cannons taken from the French were assigned by the Em peror William for its manufacture; 5,000 kilo 3 of tin were added. It was cast by Andreas Haram, of Frankenthal, and $5,800 was paid for the casting. It will be known as the Kaiserglocke, or Em peror's bell ; and as the two other large bells in the cathedral bear the epithets respectively of Pretiosa (precious) and Speciosa (beautiful), this one is styled Gloriosa. It bears above an inscription recording that "William, the most august Emperor of the Germans and King of the Prussians, mindful of the heavenly help granted to him whereby he conducted the late French war to a prosperous issue, and restored the Ger man Empire, caused cannons taken from the French to be devoted to found ing a bell to be hung in the wonderful cathedral then approaching completion." A likeness of St. Peter, the name-patron of the church, is on the side, beneath which is the quatrain in the style of the medfceval conceits, praying that, as de vout hearts rise heavenward at hearing the sound of the bell, so may the door keeper of heaven open wide the gates of the celestial mansion. On the opposite side is inscribed a sestet in German, of which the translation is : I am called the Emperor's bell; I proclaim the Emperor's honor; On the holy watch-tower I am placed. I pray for the German Empire, That peace and protection God may ever grant to it. RELIGIOUS SERVICES, ETC.
