STRAHLMANN Hawaiian Hotel Five Vents per Copy. TUESDAY : : October 4th Mr. John D. Spreckels, President of the Oceanic Steamship Company, will probably pass through here on the next mail steamer, en route to the Colonies, on business connected with the mail service. According to the latest news from Fiji, ttie sugar growers of that colony have arrived at the conclusion that the only prospect of lestoring prosperity is to merge their existence in that of Victoria. Home Rule, they find, is a failure, and they look to annexation as their last chance. A correspondent, signing himself "Curiosity," in last evening's "Bul letin" wants to know who paid the ex penses of the junketing expedition of the Minister of the Interior, the President of the Board of Health and the Superin tendent of Public Works to Kauai, an account of which appeared in Monday morning's "Gazette." The British Government is strength ening the defenses of Halifax harbor. New fortifications are being erected at the extreme point of McNab's Island, on which will be stationed two ten-inch breech-loading guns, weighing 54 tons each. These guns will have an ex plosive power of 200 pounds of powder, and will carry an 800 pound shot a dis tance of six miles. The Sydney "Herald" of a recent date says: "As showing the. great value which kangaroo skins have attained in this market, it may be mentioned lhat Mort & Co., limited, disposed of a line at auction yesterday morning at 12s. 6d. per skin, being the highest price ever realized in Sydney. The high prices now ruling are caused through heavy orders received from America. SAM0AN AFFAIRS. It is quite evident that, whatever ex planation may be given by the German authorities of the base proceedings their Commodore in the Pacific has instituted in Samoa, matters cannot be allowed to remain as they are. The Govern ments of the United States and Great Britain are bound, in the name of ordi nary decency, to denounce the acts of lawlessness reported. If they have agreed to concede to Germany the power to control native affairs in the Navigator group, they are at least bound to see that this power is exercised ac cording to the common dictates of mercy and justice, as well as in har mony with the treaty with which all three Powers are parties. Should Ger many refuse to observe this reasonable course, her right must thereby be held to have been forfeited; and should Great Britain fail to take the responsi bility which will then devolve on her, as she has shamefully avoided that re sponsibility in the past, she will have irreparably weakened the chain of asso ciations that at present constitutes the only union between her and her Austra lasian colonies. N. Z. Paper. New York, September 23. The "Sun's" Atlanta .special of September 22d says: The Glenn bill, which has already passed the House, was a special order in the Senate to-day, where it was antagonized by the Senate substitute. The Glenn bill makes it a penalty to teach whites and blacks in the same building. The substitute simply with draws State aid from such institutions. The substitute was accepted by a vote of 25 to 13. The decided majority by which the Senate passed the substitute killed the whole measure, because the House will not accept the substitute and the Senate will not accept the original bill. LATEST NEWS. New York, September 22. The arbi tration memorial to be presented to the President before many weeks by an English delegation from Westminster is hailed by French enthusiasts as a tri umph for civilization. Emile de la Veleyle contends in the 'Pall Mall Ga zette" of London that the creation of a court to which all disputes between Great Britain and the United States could be referred, would avoid all dan gers of war between English-speaking nations. He easily proves how" im portant it is for England, by a brotherly union with America, to do away with any danger threatening her from the West. He reminds Englishmen that in a few years the United States will have a hundred million inhabitants, and will be irresistible either for attack or defense ; that their country, if compelled, while carrying all the burdens of an empire, to fight the Western giant, may be reduced to the condition of a secondary power, as wps the fate of the Netherlands in the eighteenth century. He considers that there are strong hopes of unity in a vast confederation of ail the branches of the Anglo Saxon race the United King dom, Canada and Australia, the Cape and New Zealand and declares that such a union would only be complete if the United States were induced to join it, a contingency which he fears cannot be thought of as even possible. He as sumes that the United States will never be drawn into a defensive league of the British Empire, and will never consent to take a share in England's responsibil ity as a European power. Sofia, September 15. A Rustehuk newspaper recently published a state ment that the German Vice Consul had been recalled on account of scandalous conduct by his Government. The paper on the following day issued a formal de nial of the statement, offered an apology and it was supposed the matter was ended. To-day, however, it is learned that the German Charge d'Affaires at Constantinople has sent a note to the Porte requesting that German warships be allowed to pass through the Darda nelles en route to Bulgarian ports to de mand satisfaction. The Porte before as senting has asked the Bulgarian agent at Constantinople for full particulars of the affair. In order to further satisfy Germany the Bulgarian Government will suppress the paper and prosecute the editor. New York, September 21. Moffet, the sculptor, died in London September 15th from dropsy, after a lingering ill ness. He was born in England, and was in his 51st year. One of his first works in America was the gates of Greenwood Cemetery. Many of the altars in the most prominent churches of the city were designed by him. Among his last works was his design for the soldiers' monument at New Haven, Conn., and the Yorktown revolutionary monument, erected by the Government. Montreal, September 21. The bush fires which have been raging for the last few days around Donby, Quebec, ex tended to that village yesterday. Twenty-two houses and the railway sta tion were consumed. Many families lost everything. The loss is not yet known, but it is supposed to be very heavy. New York, September 19. The "Times" says that the statement that $3,000,000 in gold had been sent to the Nevada Bank is not true, but that the money went to San Francisco to protect the banks of that city having agencies here. A million and a half w ent to the Bank of California. The Seligman's sent a half million to their correspon dents and Lazard Freres forwarded a million. Metz, September 20. A son of M. Schnaebels, the French Commissioner who was arrested at Pagny-Sur-Moselle last April, has been arrested and im prisoned by the authorities for crossing the frontier near Chemnot and affixing a treasonable placard bearing the tri color of France upon a tree by the road side. Young Schnaebel is 16 years old. Boston, September 18. Letters have been received by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, picturing the terrible condition of affairs among the people of the Cicilian plain, Asia Minor. Large numbers of the in habitants are- starving. The Board has decided to make a general appeal for funds with which to alleviate the dis tress. Madrid, September 19. Captain Gen eral Ferrera publishes an edict in the Manila "Gazette" declaring the Caro line and Pelew islands to be in a state of siege, owing to the manifestations of rebellion on the part of the natives. Frankfort, September 19. It is said that England urges Abyssinia to give Italy satisfaction, and proposes a settle ment of frontiers which will remove all pretexts for collisions. New York, September 15. The "Tri bune" says that the only secret about the yacht Thistle is that her hull is covered, first with a coating of cement and then with three coats of enamel, which makes her hull as smooth as glass. Paris, September 19th. Flourence, Minister of Foreign Affairs, has sub mitted to the Budget Committee a state ment of the Tonquin business. It shows a deficit of 20,000,000 francs. The Gov ernment has decided the construction of the Tonquin railway shall not be com menced at present. VITAL STATISTICS. Mortuary Report for flotilla Ending September 30tli.

Brown, Agent Board of Health. Wonderful Increase iu the Value of Iaii el. Mrs. J. T. Gower and daughter, who have been visiting relatives and friends in this city for some time, have returned to their home in Los Angeles City, Cat. Mrs. Gower's husband, who died seven years ago, left a small tract of land which at that time could not be sold. The land was valued at a ver3" small amount. Mr. Gower had fought for its possession for ten years against a railroad company, who were determined if possible to get the land away from him. In this they were un successful. Of late land in that section of the country has experienced a boom, and now the prospects are that $100,000 can be realized from the one hundred and fifty acres which belong to Mrs. Gower and which ten years ago was hardly worth con testing for. Mrs. Gower has sold seventy two acres for $28,000, and she was offered $800 for the remainder of the land, which she refused, and the land is now worth $1,000 per acre. This is an excellent illustration of the in crease in the value of property in that sec tion during the last three or four years. The above is taken from the New Haven "Journal and Courier" of Sep tember 7th. Mr. J. T. Grower was for several years a resident on the island of Maui, and well known to many of the older residents.

It was a piece of "Attakapas Cot ton ade," or Acadian cloth, a peculiar fabric made only in the Attakapas country of southwest Louisiana, and once worn winter and summer by the Acadian planters of that region. The material is peculiar, of cotton and linen, a beauti ful blue, and very thick and heavy. It is almost waterproof, and a suit of it will last for years. Since the war it has al most gone out of use, as the secret of making it belongs to the Acadian alone. The cloth sent to President Cleveland was spun and woven on the plantation, in the parish of Iberia, of old Simonette Le Blanc, one of the patriarchal planters of the Attakapas region, who has three generations of his own descendants living near him. Washington Herald. -T The Future of Our Boys. It stands to reason that all boys cannot achieve wealth and fame, but as the years go by the proportion of the fortunate ones will constantly grow larger. What is needed more than anything else to add to the usefulness and honor of coming gener ations is a higher and fuller appreciation of the' dignity of labor. We have in mind the experience of a Maryland boy who was left several thousand dollars by his father. He did not squander it, as many boys would have done, but he determined to spend it all, and he did it in such a way that it became the very best investment that he could have made. He went iato one of the railway shops of the city a J nominal wages and paid the rest of his ex penses out of his little fortune. He learned all he could in a practical way there and then entered a first class school of technology. By the time he graduated his money was all gone, but he was able to earn his way. He kept on learning, and the consequence was that he soon rose to an -excellent position, and to-day he is in receipt of a splendid salary &nd is considered one of the best men in his pro fession in the country. Mr. Roberts, the wonderfully able and astute president of the Pennsylvania rail road, started out as a chain carrier in a surveying party. Mr. Frank Thomson, the vice president of the same road, was an apprentice in the Altoona shops. Mr. Samuel Spencer, of the Baltimore and Ohio, and one of the best railroad men in the country, was a clerk not many years ago at Camden station. Instances innu merable could be cited, and the moral of them all would be to learn a trade and to trust to industry and application for pro motion. The future of our boys is the future of our country. We have not the slightest doubt that it will be brilliant and substantial; but the individual cases of marked success must always depend upon the capacity and industry of the in dividuals. Boys fvho look upon life as a serious problem, that must be worked orxt and not played out, are able to take care of themselves. The idlers, who expect to live off of money which they do not cam, are the drones in the great national hive of industry. Baltimore .American. The Decay of Irou. Mr. David Stiles, of Middleton, who has been a practical worker in iron with his own hands for more than fifty years, has written an interesting letter to The Salem Gazette, in which he shows by observation that iron rots from age. He says that the continual jar has the effect to weaken the tensile strength of iron, which statement he illustrates by saying that the step of a carriage wdien new may be bent back and forth without breaking, but after a few years' service it will break, no matter how well preserved. TJhe same loss of tensile strength is noted in carriage springs. The poorest may be safely warranted for a year, but even after that short time they begin to break, and those of the best qual ity will break after years of constant and trying service. The writer has found that old crowbars, made of the best Swedish iron and used by the early settlers of New England, have become so rotten that they could not be welded when broken and had an offensive smell when the welding heat was applied. Formerly all iron was wrought by the trip hammer, which scattered all the brit tle and worthless material, but the substi tution of the rollers makes it possible to run bars through which contain the poor est stock. Iron made from newly mined ore, even if of poorer quality, is safer than that into the manufacture of which scrap iron is introduced, which is now imported in large quantities. The writer, as a practical iron worker expresses the opin ion that, as "this scrap iron may be the old . English bar iron, which sixty years ago was of little value except for heavy ties, it is unfit for truss or suspension bridges. The matter to which this man of long ex perience calls attention is a very import ant one and should be made the subject of general investigation Boston Journal. How Prentice Got His Passes. I was an apprentice on the old Louis ville Journal George D. Prentice was the editor and Paul Shipman was the man of all work. There wrere no city editors nor. managing editors in those days ('47-'5G). James Guthrie, of Kentucky, had been secretary of the Federal treasury, and probably learned a lesson or two in econ omy. When retired he came home to Louisville evA was elected president of the Louisville jiii'l KKshville Railway com pany. His urn ur!rr was to prohibit all passes exoV't -:i?p2oj f-s. There was to be r, Wiv.y aibcu-; .n ,t .Howling Green be tween Li- ris W. Powell and Archibald Dixon. M.v. Prentice told Shipm;-.n to go and repoiv it, wrote a letter c Mr. Suthrie for a iv-. vs out and back. The request wr-s refused. The m.xt morning the leadir x editorial xaragrap in The Journal read a- follows: "Wuijtod Any man or womai: who has a com plaint against the Louis viiio and Nash ville Railway company to write It out io full for these columns." By : Vht tLut day The Journal office had a chJ of communications. The next morninj- Mi Prentice had me bundle them all up ir; :l sent me to Mr. Guthrie with the following note: "Hon. James Guthrie, president L. and N. R'y: Herewith find divers and sundry letters touching the management of your road. Send me three annual passes in blank or I'll print every d d one of them. The Journal does not ask passes for what it prints, but for what it suppresses. Yours, G. D. P." I carried the bundle and the passes back. Phocion Howard in Chicago News. Boston's Harmonious Danish Club. A clever Danish woman said to me one day that she was engaged at her fianish club for that evening. I. asked sone care less question in regard to the club, and the reply was: "Oh, it is a beautiful club. I am the only member, so everything is managed to suit me. The truth is," she added, in a burst of confidence, "I take one evening a fortnight to read my native literature. When I said I wanted to stay at home and read, nobody accepted the excuse as valid. If I say I am engaged at may Danish club, the plea is always recog nized as valid, and I am let alone." Providence Journal. No Cards.
