J HRUM Fort stree A. M. MEIN11ARDT Hawaiian Hotel Fit'e Cents pep Copy. WEDNESDAY Maroh 7th AN IMPORTANT OFFER. By the Australia it is learned that the city of Baltimore has offered Colonel Claus Spreckels a site on which to build a large sugar refinery. In the offer is included free gas and water. Col. Spreck tls is probably on his way East by now. BLACK SAND. The "Bulletin's" black sand theory undoubted has an element of truth in it; but when the flood on Beretania street and its rapid disappearance are quoted as an example of the marvellous power of absorption possessed by the soil, we cannot but refer the writer to the grounds of the North Pacific Missionary Insti tute, towards which the water was rush ing, in a great stream after the recent -torni. The side of these grounds neur it to Beretania street was for the most ; irt under water even yesterday. The City of Sew York's Chinese. From the following article, which ap pears in the S. F. "Alta California" of February 2Gth, it appears the Chinese which the City of New York was not al lowed to land here on her last trip from Hongkong are coming on the Planter. The item reads: Houses are being j laced on the decks of the barkentine Planter for the accommodation of the : 40 Chinese which that vessel will take town to Honolulu. The Pacific Mail Company wished to charter the bark Oaibarien for the purpose, but Captain Perkins thought the responsibilities were too great for the rates. It is understood rhat Captain Perriman is getting $15 a head, which is equivalent to $13, as $2 is deducted at Honolulu for the support f the Kanaka Hospital. The Chinese oanuot land there until 18 days after they leave this port, and should any other cases develop on the passage down it will mean another 18 days in quaran tine. The Democratic National Conven tion. On February 2od St. Louis was the unanimous choice of the Democratic Na tional Committee at Washington as the place in which the Democratic National Convention will be held, and June 5th was fixed as the day for holding the convention. The following is the call for the con vention : The National Democratic Committee, having met in Washington on the 22d day of February, 1888, has appointed Tuesday, the fifth of June next, at noon, as the time, and chosen the city of St. Louis as the place for holding the National Democratic Convention. Each State is entitled to a representation therein equal to double the j nuiaber of Senators and Representatives in the Congress of the United States, and each Territory and the District of Colum bia shall have two delegates. All Demo cratic, conservative citizens of the United States, irrespective of past political associ- itions and differences, who can unite wit.'i- u.s in the effort for a pure, economical anil constitutional government, are cordially invited to join us in sending delegates to :he convention.

Moses Palau, Manager. The Australia arrived at noon yester day with dates to the 28th of February. Following is a summary of the news : A Fatal Explosion. The San Francisco "Chronicle" of Feb ruary 28th has the following : One of the worst steamship explosions that ever oc curred on this coast wrecked the South era Pacific Company's steamer Julia at South Vallejo yesterday morning and re suited in the killing or injuring of every one of the forty-nine persons on board. Fifteen bodies of the dead have been recovered and identified, and four teen persons are missing, all of whom are believed to be lying dead among the wreckage of the ill-fated steamer. Most of the killed and injured were working men going from Vallejo to the Contra Costa shore to their daily labor in the mills and factories at the Junction. The explosion occurred just as the steamer was about to start from the wharf. The Julia was broken in two, the crude petro leum used for fuel took fire, the vessel soon burned to the water's edge and the flames spread to adjoining wharf, burn ing the offices and four cars. Starr's flourmill was saved with difficult'. The entire loss is estimated at $250,000. The saddest feature of tli3 disaster was the grief of those who lost husbands and fathers. The identification of the recovered bodies was attended by terri ble scenes. None of the survivors could give any clue to the cause of the explo sion, but late last night a diver settled the mystery by discovering one boiler with the end blown clear out, while the petroleum tanks were found to be intact. The Julia was an old boat, built in 1864, and the boilers, though frequently over hauled, were never renewed. They were inspected last June and declared to be sound. The Crown Prince"! Health. A Sin Remo special of February 27th says: The extreme difficult'' which newspaper correspondents here, espe cially those representing French and Italian papers, experience in obtaining trustworthy information concerning the Crown Prince is sufficient to explain, though it does not excuse the publica tion in journals of standing and influence of news based upon nothing but idle speculation. For instance, the conjec teral consequences of the late operation are being daily reported as having al ready resulted. Professor Kussmaul's report of yesterday was a welcome cor roboration of the belief hat the condi tion of the Prince's bronchial tubes and lungs is healthy, while the result of Pro fessor Kussmaul's examination tends to allay present fears. . The announced de parture of Dr. Von Bergmann will be considered another favorable sign. The bulletin issued this morning says the German Crown Prince had a good night, and that coughing and expectora tion have lessened. The frequent interviews which occur now between Prince Bismarck and Em peror William . are due to the fact that all the news from San Remo concerning the Crown Prince is transmitted to the Em pci or tl r ugh Bismarck. Dr. Kussmaul has sent Bismarck a special report on the Crown Prince's condition, which is believed to be un- j favorable. A special prayer service on behal of the Prince was held at the Im perial Palace yesterday. Dr. Kussmaul shares in the opinion that there are cancerous cells in the mat ter expectorated by the Crown Prince. Dr. McKenzie has declined to enter into anatomatical details. British Affairs. A dispatch from London, dated Feb ruary 27th, says: The newspapers here to-day are 24 hours behind the New York "World" and San Francisco "Chronicle" in presenting copious ex tracts of Gladstone's article on Ireland, from advance copies of the "Contempo rary Review." From the Liberal papers Gladstone gets laudatory praise, and the Tory papers, while dissenting from his conclusions, give him stinted credit for a fair and impartial review of the Irish question and his clear-headed view of a way in which the solution may be brought about. The "Times" says the Board of Trade and nearly every county board is interested in it. T!e "Daily News" calls it a master piece of persuasive reasoning, and says that a palpable hit is scored in every line. The "Standard" is sarcastic. It says that the article carries the reader into the realms of fancy where every crochet has the authority of established principle, and every superficial analogy the weight ot real similitude. The "Chronicle" says the article will disap point Gladstone's followers, because it claims that home rul'v""ean only be set tled by the co-operation of the two his toric parties in British politics. At any rate, this plea from the pen of the grand old man is easily the biggest sensation of t ie day, and the discussion of it is on the tongues of all thoughtful men. It iu c.ioug-ht here that Harrington will reply lv nlf of the Union party. .Hiscellaucous. The Curtiss building at Buffalo was destroyed by fire February 26th. The loss to various occupants and on the building aggregated a quarter of a mil lion dollars. The "Express" newspaper office and the Matthews & Northrup printing arw lithographing company are among the heaviest losers. The total loss by IS" fire is now placed at $370,000. The owners of the cutter Thistle a: e building two steel center-board sloop yachts of large size on the Clyde. The keels are laid and the outside frames are up. The yachts are to measure at least ninety feet on the water line. Their de signing has been kept a profound secret, but it is supposed that Mr. Watson who designed the Thistle, is also resionsible for the lines of the new yachts. The village of Valtoria, in the north of Italy, has been half buried by an ava lanche. Many houses were wrecked and their occupants buried in the ruins. Troops from Bergano have arrived to aid in disinterring the buried. Twenty three corpses have been recovered. Sev eral persons have been extricated alive, though more or less injured. The anniversary of the birth of Prince Ferdinand wTas publicly observed atPhil lippopolis February 27th. Te Deums were sung in the cathedral and there was a parade of troops, and the Prefect gave a reception in honor of the occa sion. Many congratulatory telegrams were sent to Prince Ferdinand. It is reported that the Russian garri sons on the Prussian frontier have been re-enforced in the last fortnight by sev eral brigades which are on a war footing. There are four cavalry regiments near Princzow, which directly menace Cra cow. Advices from Hanoi, Tonquin, state that the public stores, warehouses, fac tory, several lumber yards and 500 houses have been destroyed by fire in the artisan's quarter of the city. Ton natives and one European was killed. It is reported that the Prince of Wales on the occasion of the silver wedding banquet, will announce the betrothal of Prince Albert Victor to his cousin Prin cess Alexandria of Greece, and the be trothal of Princess Victoria to the Duke of Sparta, Crown Prince of Greece. Prince Louis, second son of the Grand Duke of Baden and grand 3011 of Emperor William, is dead. Col. Spree he Is and the Suar Trust. The New York "World" in an editorial February 24th, headed "Welcome Spreckels," says: When a syndicate falls foul of the Trust there is some chance that the people will get the benfit at least for a time. Hence we hope that it is true that the Pacific Coast sugar king is forming a syndicate to fight the Eastern Sugar Trust on its own ground. Spreckels has money and skill to do it. May he keep mad for a year, and within that time the law should restore compe tition by forbidding combination con- spiracies. -Leading sugar men to-uay actively discussed the story from San Francisco that a big syndicate was to be formed to fight the Sugar Trust. At Havemeyer & Elder's the statement was pronounced buncombe. It was stated as a fact that Fraser,Harrison & Co. were on record against going into any combination or syndicate. E. Westervelt of 41 Lib -erty street, who represents the San Francisco refinery, said he had heard nothing of the scheme. It was also de nied that the American Company was in the Trust. It was thought not unlike ly that Spreckels may be contemplating the starting of a refinery here, but not for the object stated.
