MARCH 2, 1891.
The death of General William
Tecumseh Sherman, which occur
red in New York, on the afternoon
of February 14 th, removes one of
the most prominent of the Union
generals in the late war. It was
he who gave to the rebellion its
final fatal blow, in his celebrated
'March through Georgia," which
led to the surrender of the south
ern army under Lee. Since the
death of Grant, Gen. Sherman has
been the most prominent figure in
the United States, and the death of
no other person could attract
greater attention than his has. On
the Sunday evening following his
death, Dr. Talmage voiced the
popular feeling in the following

tion he expressed his respect for the reli
gion embraced by his wife and his own
faith in God and his confidence in the
future, lie was simple as a child, brave
as a lion, sympathetic as a woman, firm
as a rock, wrathful as a tempest when
aroused against wrong, and lovely as a
J une morning among his friends."
One of the Honolulu correspond
ents of the San Francisco Examiner,
in a letter published in that paper,
February" 18th, has the following
reference to Mr. J. O. Carter of
" THE COMIXO MAN.
" Whatever changes may be made it
is now admitted that Hon. Joseph O.
Carter of Honolulu, brother of the Ha
waiian Minister at Washington, is the
coming man. He is already the real
adviser of Her Majesty the Queen, and
he is certainly the very best choice the
Queen could have made, as an able,
conscientious and conservative man. Of
course nothing definite will be known
for two or three weeks, but it is safe to
say that Mr. Carter will be the leader of
the Queen's policy in the new Cabinet.
Her Majesty again sent for Mr. Carter
yesterday morning and held a long con
sultation with him, presumably on
affairs of importance, if not of State.
" Mr. Carter is a man upon whom the
interests of the entire kingdom can be
united, and he can be depended upon to
faithfully carry out the wishes of the Ha
waiian people upon the principles estab
lished at the late election. He is a man
in whom the native people have implicit
faith and is an unswerving friend of the
As is well known, Mr. Carter has
been a faithful adviser of the,
Queen, since her accession, and has
endeavored to form a Cabinet
jTvuivu nuuiu uo auueputuie to ner
iana to tne people, but without sue-
jcess. It has been rumored that
Judge Widemann might retire from
the position of Minister of Finance.
In this event, should it occur, the
appointment of Mr. Carter to that
place would add greatly to the
strength of the Government, and
receive the approval of every one.
His long service in the Finance
Department, as registrar of public
accounts, combined with his
thorough knowledge of every
branch of Government and mer
cantile affairs, point to him as the
fittest man that can be named,
whose influence would add greatly
to the popularity of the reign of
Queen Liliuokalani, and furnish a
Cabinet that would possess full
public confidence. Could the peo
ple Hawaiians and foreigners
have an opportunity of expressing
their opinion regarding this, it
would doubtless be unanimous.
The city of New Westminster,
B. C, was visited by a destructive
fire on the 14th and damage to the
sum of $500,000 was done.
It is stated that Brazil is trying

The sugar market is about the
same. Hawaiian is coming in at a
lively rate, and is being unloaded
as last as possible in order to es
cape the operations of the McKin-
ley bill, which goes into effect on
April 1st. Eastern refiners are
hurriedly getting their Louisiana
stocks into consumption for the
same reason, and are at the sams
time getting as much Java and
other foreign sugars as they can.
S. S. Australia.
The Australia arrived on the
17th, with a big freight and pas
senger list. Captain Houdlette re
ports a rough trip. The second
day out of Honolulu the steamer
encountered a heavy cross sea that
forced him to slow the engines
down to half speed. Not a breath
of air was stirring, but the sea
seemed disturbed mightily by some
pnseeu power. Great towering
rollers piled up all around the Aus
tralia, and a few of them broke on
deck, deluging her with tons of
water. One tremendous comber
curled over and dropped on the
lorecastle deck with such weight
as to spring the planking and split
both the bulkheads.

The Hawaiian Cable.
During the past ten days Con

subsidy for the construction of a

the matter to success was the pas
