A London dispatch of September 20th says: "The uneasiness and uncertainty ot the European aspect, it is felt, is much aggravated by the abandonment of the proposed visit of the Czar and Em . peror at Stettin. Of course it is yet pos sible they may confer at Surne Munde, .as originally proposed, but the falling Bourse of Berlin and the tone of the Cologne "Gazette" discredit the proba bility of such a meeting. The Triple Alliance is now openly dead, and the Kalnoky and Bismarck meeting em phasizes its demise. The two Cv JMe folds . i lors have subsftjjf- Variance! and British i " Ajws in thevLi"lfalv for Russia, in the midJJ? military officers, who know the perfection of the Italian army, regard the power as no mean ally. But Russia is now playing a hand entirely her own. The Czar, who manages Bis own foreign policy, evidently wants to keep free from all entangling alliances. The con contempt poured upon the French Re public by the Russian press, notably by the Moscow 'Gazette,' since KatkofTs. death, and the Czar's well-known dislike of the man who now rules France, indi cate no present arrangement with the Paris Government, but every day makes clearer what Bismarck calls the 'inevit able war between France and Germany' breaks out the Germans will have to count upon Russia as a passive if not an active foe. Private letters from Berlin " declare the existence of almost feverish anxiety in high places to be ready to strike sharp and strong against any further combination between Russia and France, and to secure Italy as an ally for the defense of Austrian territory against Russian aggressions. It is not as if the English Foreign Office is already com mitted to that responsibility, but this is not generally accepted. While the clouds are thus gathering in one direction, they are clearing in an other. Published telegrams show how rapidly the Suez canal difficulty is be ing shaped for a solution. The conciliat ing attitude of "Minister Fl " m. -x -m rvV?

BEFORE POLICE JUSTICE DAYTON. Saturday, October 1st. Kaukuhauli was fined $6 for drunken ness. Manuel Silvajvas discharged for dis orderly conduct. Jas. Harris was fined $6 and $3 10 costs for assault and battery on Annie Harris. Richard Cayford was fined $7 for as sault and battery on Andrew Wier at Hill's soda stand, Hotel street. The trouble arose out of a petition. Kaahu, for assault and batteay on a native woman, was sent on the reef for five davs. Iteyal Hawaiian Hotel. Following are the late arrivals at the Hawaiian Hotel : Wm. A. Goodale, Hawaii; G. II. Bixhy and wife, California; Frel II. IIayselden, J. J. Moorhead, Lanai; John A. Beckwith, Hilo, HASTIE AND DAY. Tito Wellkuonu Honolulu acters and Their Doings toast. Cliar at the Our readers will remember Hugh Hastie, whose name has been so fre quently mentioned in connection with the Post Office robbery. Also Harry Dav. a flash vouner man who chummed a great deal with Hastie. The following j from the San Francisco "Chronicle" j concerns them : j Burglars, as a rule, are proverbial for their total disregard of the laws of eti quette, but it is probable that the enter prising young man who rifled the room of a married couple in J. D. Fraser's lodging house at 126 Sixth street, at 2 o'clock yesterday morning, was the noblest Roman of them all in point of "gall." In order that the situation may be properly grasped it will be necessary to state that a fashionable young man named Harry Day, and a companion Hush Hastie. went to Fraser' house to lodge .some four or five months ago rraser had known the pair Detore in Honolulu, and greeted them cordialhy lhev told him that they had Deen en- sratred in real estate business in San Diego and seemed to be well fixed in the matter of cash and jewelry. They stayed at Fraser's house a few weeks and left again, ostensibly to go to San Jose to take part in the boom. Last week they turned up aerain, and said that they had just returned from San Diego, their old stamping ground. iThey only remained in eraser s house one night and left next morning, having oc cupied pooin 3 on the first floor. Yesterday morning at the time before mentioned, Mrs. Fraser, whose room is on the same floor as room 3, heard some one stirring on the landine, and looked out through a small window, and saw a young man moving about, minus coat, boots or hat. She saw him take the articles referred to from under a cane bottom arm-chair and shift them further along the passage toward room 3, being very stealthy in all his actions. She aroused her husband, and in the mean time the young night-prowler had ap parently passed into room 3, which was occupied by a married couple. By the time Fraser had got out of his room, which is at the head of the stairs, he heard voices in room 3, and im mediately afterward the burglar, for such in reality ne was. oacKed out oi ti - Z 1 1 1 , A . a I , and .1 rAnin a rid artr lr atiM a i lant l break for the Ag CosmODolivly made a pioV ' - . ..airs, without waiting to uflfis coat or hat. Fraser grabbed him and the young man struggled to free himself without avail. Seeing that he was bowled out, he resorted to strategy. 'D- it, Fraser," he whined, "don't you know me? It's Harry." Fraser looked closely at his man and found it was none other than his former dashing young lodger. "And what are you prowling around here for?" asked Fraser. "Why," quickly responded the ready witted rascal, "that infernal idiot Hughie (his partner) has plaj'ed a trick on me. He told me when I met him to-night that he had engaged our old room, No. 3, and asked me to come and stay with him to-night. Here's a nice pickle I'm in, to be sure. Bursting in on a married couple and making a fool of myself." m The story looked so plausible on the face of.it that Fraser released his hold of Day. In the meantime the male occu pant of room 3 had come to his door, and hearing Day's explanation, was quite satisfied that a mistake had been made, such as might occur at any time. He accordingly went back to bed, while Day secured his hat, coat and boots and went forth into the night cursing and vowing vengeance on his friend Hughie for playing a trick upon him. When, however, the occupants of No. 3 arose in the morning, the husband was surprised to see his pants lying on the floor of the room. His curiosity being aroused he took them up, and a very short search sufficed to show him that the contents ot the pockets, about $10, had been abstracted. About this time his wire remarked that she could not find her cuffs. A few minutes' hunting developed the fact that the missing articles were under the bed and minus their gold sleeve buttons. Mr. Fraser was at once appraised of the discovery and the truth at once flashed across his mind. "How was it I heard voices in your room?" he asked of the male lodger. "Well," was the reply, "my wife awoke and whispered to me that there was a man in the room. iaised my head and saw him fumbling' about, and I cried out : 'What do you want?' The fellow" started to back out, saying: 'I really beg gour pardon. I have made a mistake.' He got clear of the door, and bv the time I got up you had hold of him. You know the rest. His explun ation seemed to sausiy you, and l am sure it satisfied me. I can see now, though, that he had only just com menced to work. There was my wife's gold watch on the bureau and there was plenty of money and jewelry in the room, if he had had time to look for it." Further searching revealed the fact that the burglar had taken a big tobacco knife from the lodger's pants along with the mone3r. This he opened and placed on the wainscotting near the door, prob ablv for use if attacked. There is not the slighest doubt that he had laid him self out for a big hauL Fraser reported the matter to the Chief of Police yesterday, and detectives were immediately detailed to work on the matter. -r -v J T , r-. jay anu ma companion came to t?an Francisco some months ago from Hono lulu, and it is a notorious fact that they bore very unsavory reputations at that place. ISLAND NOTES. Hilo, Hawaii, September 29. Hon. S. G. "Wilder received a warm welcome on his arrival at Hilo on the 27th inst. He certainly deserves great credit for what ho has accomplished. It is expected work will soon be com menced. He seems not to know any thing about the word fail. In due time when the railroad is completed Hilo will expect the man who has done so much to have a line of steamers running from Hilo to San Francisco. There will be a land boom in Hilo in course of time. Make a note of this. Mr3. A. B. Loebenstein, with some of the young Misses of Hilo, gave an en tertainment at the Court House Hall on the 24th instant, to a large audience. The platform on which the Judges sit had been beautifully decorated with a great variety of flowers. The programme consisted of eighteen selections. It was called the Busy Bee Concert. Of course the dear children must have as much notice taken of their efforts to please their friends as older people expect. Mrs. Loebenstein has the happy faculty of drawing out the good points of her pupils. She conducted the entertain ment alone. Many fathers and mothers were' proud of their children's efforts, and so were the audience, for all enter tainments go off well in Hilo. The fol- 1 J.

Cases of "Ghoulish Glee." once saw a fellow laugh at the odd l porivance wmcn aconuemneu man pie- . ::'ed as the cap was secured on his head :d the hangman reached for the noose. it the look of the strangely moved man !y showed that he was screwing his .:.)ura:jo to the sticking point while await the terrible shock which would tell that the slack of the rope had run out. But the most brutal howls of delight I think I ever listened to came from a hardened audience who had come to see a "knock out." It was to be a "kid glove" affair. How- strangely out of place "kid gloyes" seemed here! It wasn't the rag tag which had gathered to t i i witness the combat either. It was a well dressed, apparently resectable crowd. To the end of the first round all went merry as a marriage bell. Slugging ruled. But as one bruiser successively brought the claret from his antagonist's nose, closed his left eye, then his right, and finally wound up his handiwork by knocking Ids jaw awry, the mobbish on lookers gave themselves up to unre strained glee and laughed to their heart's content at the comical appearance of a man with both eyes closed and hi3 jaw out of joint. It was indeed "ghoulish glee." You see instances every day in which laugiiter takes the place of sympathy. A good deal of it arises from mere thought lessness. For example, I saw a great hulking fellow Jaugh quite heartily one. cold night at a fireman, who just as he cfpeared in the second story of a burning building received a stream of water full in the stomach. He was hurled back into the flames and smoke by the force of the water. The fellow who thought the oc currence so funny at first was not the last to realize its seriousness and mount the ladder to tl rescue of tho unfortunate Observer in Philadelphia Call. Tlie 1'syclnc Man and the Cosmic. It is not the fashion just now to ad mire wholly vital men. The ideal man is a disembodied affair. But we must not forget that some of the grandest types were magnificently vital, with large ap petites and surging impulses. Your Shakespearcs and your Goethes were powerful furnaces tbat shook by the violence of their c mbu:.t ion the delicate machinery they propelled. Your Handel was like an oak whose roots aye in a mo rass but whose branches are in Heaven. And from St. Paul to John Knox we shall have to follow the events of history by the great vital captains that helped to mako it. I leave it to aesthetic pietisni to say, if in its efforts to establish the purely psyi hie man it is not in danger of abolishing the cosmic man. Nvm Crinkle in New York World. Chemical Properties of Sunlight. Photographic experiments now reveal extraordinary chemical properties in the sun's rays, while, strange to say, some of the rays are entirely destitute of this peculiar power. It has also been dis covered that there are rays of light out lide of the solar -spectrum, and whi h are invisible to to the human eye. New York Sun. A Discovery in Drilling. A workman at the Carson mint lias discovered that drill points heated to a cherry red and tempered by being driven into a bar of lead, will bore through the hardest steel or plate glass without per ceptibly blunting. - The Body and Its Food. The body is a very delicate mechanism through which the spirit manifests itself, and by means of which is its only means of manifesting itself in this phase of life. That it is designated in scripture as "the Temple of the Holy Ghost" is language none too strong and too impressive. Its supplies of food and of sleep the two forces that give it motive power should be so carefully ordered in quality and quantity that they may produce the best results, and leave it in the best working condition. This is the law and the prophets. As concrete illustration is not always ill timed thg ' 4 working menu, " as he calls it, of a successful literary man may be noted a man who combines a lar: rrct amount of creative work with great e ecutive ability and the superintendence of an intricate and important busmess. On rising he takes a glass of hot water. For breakfast, steak, cracked wheat (taken as a vegetable, not with sugar and cream), dry toast, with a very moderate allow ance of coffee. For luncheon and dinner he confines himself strictly to good meats, one or two vegetables, bread, fruit, and tea or coffee (still in very small quantities) if desired. He insists on reasonably early hours of sleep, and cultivates an intimate acquaintance with fresh air. And this means of living generates a vigor and energy of body, and of clearness of mind that gives him power to do literally the work of three ordinary men in two or three different directions, and to do it with extraordinary ease and excellence. The gospel of good living may well be a subject for serious consideration and adoption. Lilian Whiting in New Orleans Times-Democrat. Cases of Self Consciousness. Said a lady who was neither beautiful nor ugly, and could not. therefore, have been a subject of public remark: "I dis like open horse cars; one is so conspicu ous in them!" "It never occurs to me that people in this busy city have time to notice me, replied another. The latter theory is the most satisfac tory; it not only saves one from the an noyance of feeling that she is an object of disagreeable attention, but it has the advantage of being much nearer the truth. A cat may look at a king, but in this busy world pussy is usually too much engaged in her daily vocation of mouse watching to waste her gaze, even on royalty. A pretty woman, riding one day in an omnibus, whispered to her companion: 'That person stares at me so persistently that I must change my seat. ' ' The gentleman in question wTas gazing past her writh abstracted eyes, and prob ably engaged in innocent mental debate upon some business problem.

A little girl came home from school one night, complaining that the "big boys" had chased her. "Ah, well," placidly replied her mother, "if you didn't run they couldn't chase you, ' ' Youth's Companion. A Most Wonderful Instrument. Paracelsus has told us, however, how to make tho "Electrum Magicum," out of wliich you may make a mirror in which you may see the events of the past and the present, absent friends and ene mies, etc. Take ten parts of pure gold, ten of silver, five of copper, two of tin, two of lead, one of powdered iron and five of mercury all pure metals. "Wait until Saturn and Mercury come into con junction, haying all your appliances ready for the fortunate moment. Then melt the lead, add the mercury, and let it cool. Wait for a conjuntion of Jupi ter with Saturn and Mercury, then melt your compound in a crucible, and in another crucible the tin, and pour the two metals together at the moment of conjunction. Wait for a conjunction of the sun with either of the planets, and then melt and add the gold. Similarly, at a conjunction of the moon with the sun, or Saturn or Mercury, add the silver in like manner; and at the conjunction of Venus with any of the others, add the copper. The last conjunction is with Mars, when the iron is to be added, the fluid stirred with a dry rod of witch hazel, let it cool and there you are! All the Year Round. Improvising a Pipe. "Talking about ingenuity,", said a drummer to a reporter, "I want to teU you what I saw last winter out west. I was on a train that was snowed in for three days. The company sent us food, but they didn't send any cigars, and the train boy's stock was exhausted the first day. In the express car we found and confiscated a box of smoking tobacco, but there wasn't a pipe on the train. Among the passengers was a Connecticut Yan kee who was just dying for a smoke. He got out in the snow and looked around for a weed or something of that sort, which he might use in making a pipe, but couldn't find a thing. 'I'm going to have a pipe, anyhow, ' he said. So he took a lead pencil, opened the wood, took out the lead, and, placing the two strips together again, wound them tightly with the tin foil which came out out of the packages of smoking tobacco, making them air tight. Then he took an apple, hollowed a bowl out of it, and had one of the nicest pipes you ever saw. If you don't believe it, make one for yourself some time and try it." Chicago Herald. Female Vote In Massachusetts. The secretary of state for Massachu setts has issued a report showing to what extent women have taken ad vantage of the law passed in 1880 per mitting them to vote at school board elections. In 1881, 1,571 ladies voted, andinl88G, 1,911. The largest possible female vote in the state is 340,000, and hence it would appear that after six years less than six women out of every thousand take the trouble to record theii votes. Chicago Times. Old Women as Physicians. There is, says one, strong tendency among the laity to rerd the excessive mortality of children ' a matter of course, and to feel that a sick child is safer in the hands of an old woman than in those of a physician, and this is ot to be wondered at when we take into account that many doctors sympatliize with their views, and defer to the superior judgment of kindly matrons and sapient grannies.
