Verv meun. ,...-' Onv the King of Holland's 70th birth day, a short time since, the Queen pre sented him with a novel gift. The ladies-in-wating carried in a huge bou quet of choice natural flowers, and on setting it before Ilia Majesty he was much astonished, when all at once the top of the bouquet opened, and the head of his little daughter Princess Wilhel- rxiina. .peeped out from among the flowers . The prize, offered by the French Gov ernment of $10,000 for the most valuable discovery relating to the utilization of electricity is to be awarded next Decem ber. It is for any use or application of electricity namely, as a source of heat, or lurnt, or 01 chemical action, as a J-means of transmission of mechanical power or of verbal communication in any , form, or, finally, as a curative agent. THE"Toronto World," referring to the question of snbsidising the Pacific Ocean Steamship Line, says: "We do not need at :this time of dav to cite proofs of the ? fact that' In these times foreign com mercial rivalry is pushing Great Britain in markets abroad at places where form . erlv she had the trade all to herself. Now, ' by liberally subsidising the Pa cific Ocean Steamship Line in connection with the Canadian Pacific Railway, British commerce would have a right to the first advantages conferred by it, which we are sure will be neither few nor small. Canadians have good reason to feel the heat or indignation coming over them when they contemplate how slow the commercial element at home has been to do iustice to Canada's latest gigantic and most effective contribution to the welfare of the mother country." THE TONGA ISLANDS. The San Francisco " Call " of Septem ber 13th has the following : " According to a dispatch from Berlin, published in jesterda' morning's papers, Great Brit ain has concluded a treaty with the King of the Tonga Islands, under which that monarch will cede nothing to a foreign power without the assent of England. The treaty is an unpleasant surprise to Germany, as the Tonga Islands have been, considered a promising field for German enterpriser Not only is that an nouncement an unpleasant surprise to Germany, but it .has deeply chagrined the State Department officials. The Tonga Islands are more popularly known as the Friendly Islands,' and were dis covered by Captain Cook. They are in the South Pacific, and are of that group of which Fiji and the Samoan Islands are best known. Yams, sweet potatoes, breadfruit, tobacco, corn and sugar cane . grow in abundance, and the natives are fairly intelligent and well disposed. Realizing its commercial advantages the State Department last year entered into negotiations, and concluded a treaty with King George of the Tonga Islands, by which diplomatic and consular relations were to be V established between the isl ands and the United States. The State Department found the King to be intel ligent and anxious to be brought into more intimate relations w ith this coun try. Congress, however, refused to make any appropriations for the service, and as the department's appropriation speci fies the precise purpose to which it shall be put, and is not in bulk, the depart ment could do nothing but let the treaty slumber in its archives. It was the in tention of Secretary Bayard to again ap ply to Congress at this session for an appropriation for the Tonga Island serv ice, but whether he will do so now that England has the dominant influence there is doubtful. "The trade of the Tonga Islands is worth having, and with it would natur ally come that of the more important Fiji Islands, although the latter are Brit ish possessions. The chief imports of the islands are wine, beer and spirits, teaf coffee and other groceries, tools and hardware of all descriptions and many domestic utensils. At the present time the bulk of this trade is with Australia, although some of it goes direct to Eng land, but there is no earthly reason why San Francisco and Sew York should not be export and import markets." Evidence Taken Before the Police Justice Tbe Two Defeudantt Cora ailt ted for Trial to tbe Supreme Court. In the Police Court yesterday George Hawkins and Joseph Silva were tried on a charge of conspiracy, to wit, in maliciously conspiring to extort money beyond the sum of $100 from Frederick L. Leslie. The first witness was George Putnam, who stated on Saturday evening, the 17th, he met Hawkins and Silva, and they told him to tell Leslie they would be at his house the following day to see him about some land suit. Frederick Leslie said he was the de fendant in a land suit. Suva knew about it, and both he and Hawkins had spoken to him about it. He was told they were coming to see him on Sunday, and being suspicious, communicated with the Marshal, and the result was two police officers were concealed on his premises to await their arrival and hear what they had to say. Edward Hopkins, a police officer, on being placed in the dock, said he heard a conversation at Leslie's house between 2 and 3 o'clock last Sunday afternoon. He was concealed in a feed room in a barn. He put down the conversation and could see the parties through the cracks of the partition. He presented his original notes to the Court, which are as follows : , Silva He came to me on the night of the election and said he would pay me $500 to swear you paid him no money in" the Royal. Leslie Do you think he has got $500? Silva He would have it if he won the land. It is just this wav, if you give us $500 each we will swear we were both there and saw the money paid. If you can't we will swear that you paid no money. I want to make a stake and leave the country. Leslie $500 each. Is that what you want to testify to the truth? It is pretty steep. Hawkins That is rather heavy ; but what do you think is fair? Leslie I make no offer. I want to hear what you have got to say. The place has cost me $1,850 already. Silva We want $500 each or nothing. If we stand witnesses for Kanakanui he will get the land and you will lose your $1,850. You have not got any receipt for it. If you don't want to give it, say so. Five hundred dollars of the kanaka's money is just as good as yours. I can mniD trie town on tnat. w e are no ml A. damn fools, you can bet on that. I am going to make a stake, and if I get on the reef it is for something, and not for a few dollars. Leslie You want to make a stake all out of me. Silva Your money is just as good as his. Leslie You want $500 each, do you? Silva That is what I said. Leslie I will not give you five cents You take Kanakanui's $500, and be damned. I will let my case stand on its merits. I paid $1,850 and you signed the receipt as a witness. If you want $500 each to tell the truth, you can go to h . This is what I call blackmail. Silva You are talking like a damn tool. man. lou win lose ine ianu as sure as Christ. I am not going to throw a wav no SoUO. do von tmnK i am a damn fool. I am going to make a break, and not going on the reef for nothing. So you can do as you please. Leslie This is what I call a clear case of blackmail. I will not give you a damn cent. '1 know all about it. I know the day you stole the receipt out of my pocket. Hawkins If you know all about it I don't want to work for you any longer, so take the key. Leslie All right; if you want to quit, do. I am surprised at you, George, that you would do such a thing after working for me for three years. I will not pay one cent, but let my case stand on its merits. Silva You are talking like a foolish man. Leslie All right; the two of you can get off my place. Silva All right ; you will be sorry for it. At this point of the conversation Hop kins and the other officer with him, David Naholewa, knocked at the door and were admitted by Leslie. Hopkins told Hawkins and Silva he had heard all they said and had taken it down on paper. The defendants then left the premises. ' . Other witnesses were examined, and His Honor committed both defendants for trial at the next term of the Supreme Court. In the Los Angeles "Times," of Septem ber 5th, appears an interview with a man named H. Benedict, a restaurant waiter. He says he visited the Islands six years ago. where he was a slave and managed to escape alter five years of abuse. His state ments are so untruthful throughout the in terview that he ought to be classed as one of the boss liars of the present day. LATE NEWS. Boston, September 7th. An explosion occurred this morning on board the schooner War Eagle, loaded with naph- tha, at her dock. The vessel was com- j pletely burned, to-gethcr with a bridge and Piatt & Washburn's factory adjoin ing. A man named Henry O'Donnell was burned to death. The steward jumped overboard and was drowned. The Captain and mate vere very badly burned. Four 'longshoremen were badly burned. Loss, $42,000. Charlestown (S.C.),September 7th. Ex-Governor William Aiken died to-day at Flat rock, N. C, aged SI years. He was the largest landholder in the State before the war and was a successful rice planter. He was Governor of South Carolina in 1844 and Congressman from 1851 to 1857. He consistently opposed nullification and secession, and took no part in politics after leaving Congress. Napli:s, September ll'th. Three soldiers at Trepani were sent to perform disinfecting duty, and were assailed by a mob, who tried to force them to swallow the carbolic acid which they had been sprinkling about the streets and houses. One of the soldiers imbibed the liquid and soon after died in horrible agonv. The other two refused to drink the acid and were killed. Key West, September '2d. The ex citement that has reigned in Havana for the last week has been settled. The Governor General has ordered the troops to return to their respective posts. The troops that occupied the cable offices were placed there by the Gov ernor to prevent anvone intercepting cable communication, and were re lieved last night. The Governor Gen eral has now gained his point, and peace will probably be made. The Govern ment has sanctioned the Governor Gen eral's action, and ordered him to remain in authority on the island, and he has accepted. London, September 2d. Lord Salis bury has written a letter to the Conserv atives in the Bridgetown division of Glasgow in explanation of the trouble in the recent election, in which he says: "By dexterous ambiguity of language many Liberal-Unionists have been per suaded that Gladstone has abandoned his separation designs. In course of time the Gladstone policy must be ex plained definitely, and then the exer tions of the Unionists will receive a triumphant revard." London, September 7th. The Trades Congress has adopted a resolution to form a labor electoral association for the pur pose of securing an increase of labor rep resentation in Parliament. Another res olution demands land reform, beginning witli such an imposition of taxes that will eventually leave the land in the pos session of the people. Pap.is, September 5th. The" Temps" says that M. Waddington, French Em bassador at London, has delivered to Lord Salisbury France's reply to the latest British proposals regarding the neutralization of the Suez Canal. The reply amounts, practically, to the accept ance of an agreement with England. London, September 12th. Mary An derson had a narrow escape from an ac cident when returning from the Lyceum on Saturday night. Her coachman was drunk and fell off the box in the Strand. The horse was caught before the carriage was upset or run into. 2ducrfispninus Absolutely Pure. Tali powder never varbs. Amarvci or punty. rtv'-"-th ftri vhoieroiaensss.
