SIGHTS IN BANGKOK. Graphic Description of WTiat ChIas:o's Ex-Mayor Saw in an Oriental City. Bangkok is entirelv different from all other eastern cities I have seen. Else where the houses are compacted together so as to cover as little siiace as possible. and the people massed as in hives. This city, however, with its oU,UUU peop.e, covers more crround than Canton, with its 1,000,000. There are but few streets. but they are quite broad. Hie canals run in everv direction, and are so numerous that the Siamese are proud to eall their capital the Venice ot the east, nouses rroiect over these canals, with own bal conies, and both sides of the river tor six or more miles are lined with flouting houses, used not onlv for residences, but for business. Peonle do their shopping in boats, and while a woman sells to her customer in open view for all houses liave open fronts her lazy husband Iishes, sitting unon a box of eoous, and his children bathe and swim around the house. In rowing or being rowed about there was never a moment that I could not see somewhere a bather; and just at sun- ... down all the common world seemed am phibious. The panoong is retained on when in the water, and is then either exchanged for a drv one or left on to drv. Rivers and canals are always rilled bv freight boats, forty to sixty feet long; by small peddler txxits; by canoes oi au sizes, from ten feet, barely holding a man, up to 100 or more feet, with fifty or more paddlers moving in state with some high official. I saw one long canoe with nearly 100 rowers. Each one would dip his paddle and then lift it on high a curious sight thus to see nearly 100 pad dles in air at the same time. There aro quite a large number of small steam barges in the city. These dart alout very rapidly. In fact, all boats seem to do so, for the tide runs very swiltly, and ooatd Eroincr with its current move in the chan- while those going against it stick to the eddies. Tins makes the river a very lively one, especially toward the cool ot the day. Trees abound throughout the town. along the streets, along the canals and about the houses many of them of good forest size. Looking down from a high pagoda one can scarcely realize oneself in the heart of a crreat citv. lhe ordinary house is almost entirely lost in the mass of green. Here and there one peeps out, looking cool and shaded, liut tne loity. snow white nacrouas, the tall, steep rooted temples roofed in tiles of many colors. many of them m gilt the beautiful uiosk turrets of the palaces, the gilded royal wat and cenotaph, and the white palaces themselves, make the city from an emi nence look like a vast royal garden, with princely palaces and oriental temples nestled among ornamental tropical trees. The wat is a sort of monastery, -with its temple and kiosk and lodging house of the priest within a single inclosure. There are a great many of these in tho 2ity, and many of them of 'Vonderful richness. Some of the temples and pa godas are made up entirely of gilt and glass mosaic, in small pieces inlaid in cement walls and flashing in the sun light like mountains of gold and dia monds. The royal wat makes the looker 3n feel that Aladdin's lamp is close by, revealing to him scenes of fairy yonder rather tlian scenes of actual reality, It is within and without its several temple buildings and its five or six lofty, round pointed pagodas made p of gold and yems. The gold is of burned gilded pot tery in email squares of an inch, bril liantly glazed; the gems of glass of dif ferent colors and set like rose faced dia monds, sapphires and rubies. Looking upon the pile of these buildings, covering several acres, just as the sun goes down, with a gentle breeze causing the thou sand tiny bells which hang to cornice, frieze, and projecting point to tinkle, I almost felt as if I had been carried off by. some flying genie and gently dropped upon a scene of oriental fable. Unfortunately all of the temples, pago das and kiosks are of brick, stuccoed with Portland cement, and the gems and gold planted into it will last only for. a short time. Many thousands of dollars are required each year to keep the entire fabrics of beauty from tumbling into decay. A change of dynasty will bring quickly the glory of Siam's capital into a heap of debris. Carter Harrison in Chicago Mail. WHOLESALE AND RETAIL GRAIN Sire ET Honolulu, f J tfMUU folic.

These permits are issued annually upon the payment of a fee. If he wants to leave the country or 50 from one to another he must notify the police, for that branch of the govern- ment must know where each inhabitant , of the vast empire sleeps every night. In the provinces the rigid surveilance is re laxed, but at St. Petersburg and Moscow and other places visited by tourists there is a constant contact between the sover eign and the subject that is disagreeable to both. The police grant permission to o and come readily. There is no inter ference with travel nor with trade. Sub mission! submission! that is all. No one san get a ticket at a railway station nor Dn a steamboat without showing a permit to leave; no hotel will entertain a guest till he shows his passport. One cannot sjo anywhere or do anything without tho consent of the authorities, but it is easily obtained, and costs forty copecks for the stamp that appears on the document about fifteen cents. Cor.
