F. Allen reported that the special committee recommended the recall of J.

Soper was read. He asked for an appro priation of 128 for bis department, the money to be used for making some necessary changes in four field pieces. Carried. President Dole read an order relat ing to the militia. The colonel in command was ordered to send by the next mail for uniforms for com pany E. . An act relating to a special appro priation for expenses incurred at special elections during the year 1892, was road for the first time and passed to second reading. An art to regulate the printing and publication of newspapers was read a first time. It was amended to take effect on its publication. Another amendment was carried to the effect that the act should not in clude newspapers which are pub lished in foreign lands, and which may be circulated here. The bill passed to second reading. First reading of an act to amend chapter 4S of the penal code, relating to firearms. Passed to second read ing. Mr. Emmelath introduced the fol lowing resolution : Whereas, the Provisional govern ment of tho Hawaiian islands was organized on the 17th day of January for the purpose of furthering the an nexation of these islands to the United States. Whereas, this Provisional govern ment has been recognized by all the representatives of foreign powers as the sole government of these island?. Resolved, that agitation for the restoration- of the ex-queen, or for any political purpose other than that for which this government lias been organized, is hereby declared to come within the meaning of the sedi tion act passed by the.e councils January 30 of this year ; and the police department is hereby instructed to proceed against all persons making themselves liable under the said act. Mr. Waterhouso moved tho resolu tion pass. Treason was being enact ed under their very noses. It was time action was taken. He believed the queen encouraged tue native agitators from the other islands. Mr. Emmelnth said the object of the government was annexation. He believed it should bo deemed treason for anyone to propose restoration or the establishment of an independent republic. Explanations should be given the ignorant natives. He cited an instance of superstition to illus trate his views. Alexander Young favored tolera tion, but agreed with Mr. Emmelnth in the main. . , Attornev General Smitu said the government should deal cautiously in the matter; there was danger of jroing too far. He believed in peace ful discussion. It was certainly law- fQMr. Brown said the best plan was to go slow, especially as Mr. Blount was present carrying on an investi tion, and nothing should be done to obstruct him. . Mr. Emmeluth stated be was not in favor of suppressing the Hawaiians, but those who were misleading them. Vice President Damon thought it showed weakness to attempt to sup press movements favorable to restor- ation. He thought press freedom was favorable to safety. He did not, how ever, believe in license. He thought the Provisional government W23 now stalil r-nooirh to ttand without the protection of extreme measure?. ( The resolution was referred to the ; jXecniive louuui. At 3:35 the conncils went into exe cutive session. THE EMPEROR'S CVSS. Terrific I'wtrof Get many .Ytw Artillery. So destructive in its eflV t is the new German artillery that it is assert ed, once the range were found, .1 bat- , tery would annihilate an entire divis- j ion in a very short time, rnma iacie this seems rather to border on the im- 5 possible: but when the results of the j experiments which were recently , made in the presence or me rumperor : with f hp npu- wen nous are considered . the task does not appear to be so im- i practicable alter all, says me wjuuuu Court Journal. The iirt shot tried in ; the course of these experiments was at a target placea liny paces irom . wood. The missile missed the target, but plowed its way for 500 yards j through the wood. Shortly afterward a large area of the wood was discov ered to be on fire. This was due to tiio ah.n hpint? charcred with ft certain i kind of powder, the composition of j which is a secret Known oniy 10 iuu German government. The splinters j fmm ktoll hurst. hV tl) 13 DOW Uer ilDU tired by the new gun cover a circle of 'J00 teet. Tins is a great luipiofiucui , on the limited area of ground tuat was t covered by splinters from shells fired j by the artillery weapon of twenty years ago. Then it was considered ef- j fentivn shootinir if splinters from a i shell were thrown within a circuit of ! forty or fifty paces, and seven or eight i men wounded; but the new gun has ! a far greater destructive power than j this. Another shell fired at an enor- j mous target, constructed by the Em- ; peror's orders, covered it with thous- ; :uids of holes. I The new German Held gun might, . fierhaps, be better described as an en arged rifle, for that is what it really is. The ammunition, like rifle cart ridges, consists of one piece only. Ignition is produced by a ready fuse, and the four kinds of projectiles at present in use, i. e., shell, explosive shell, shrapnel and grape shot, give place to a uniform projectile, an ex plosive shell, possessing the com bined characteristics of shell and shrapnel. Thus the possibility of a gunner mistaking in the heat of bat tle one projectile for another will be averted, while the loading, aiming and firing, besides being (juicker for the new arm is loaded and fired in one-third of the time required in working the old gun and the effect and precision are almost double will be surer and unattended with danger. The barrel of the new gun is made of cast steel, with a caliber of eight centimeters, and the total weight of the gun, limber and carriage is slight ly less than that of the old artillery weapon. Being lighter, the mobility of the new gun will, of course, be con siderably increased. The limber and gun carriage are maae or iron ana iron plates. The limber box is open j behind near the gun when in action, j The advantage of this innovation is that the projectiles can be served out I from the limber and ammunition j wagon with greater rapidity. Another t important feature is that the carriage j is supplied with a brake, which coun- , teracts the recoil, the process of load- I ingand firing being thus simplified. ! . j One on the Parson. J A minister gifted with the power of j seeing the humorous side of life amid j his pastoral duties, can tell a story with a gusto and relish of a judge of ; the supreme Louru iiifj t-ujijr laugh with the best of men, and their mirth is as infectious as it is often un expected. Last night a local clergy mau was in a jovial frame of mind, and he related the following inciaent for the benefit of his companion. A brother minister once had occasion to marry a couple of darkies, and w hile it was a recognized custom in his part of the country that the otlieiating clergyman should salute the bride, this particular instance was a little more than the minister could stand. So at the conclusion of the ceremony Ua rntnnrlrpd th.lt. while it Was the usual custom to salute the bride, on j this occasion he would omit it. "Yes," responded the groom, -on sucu an occasion it is the usual custom to fee the minister, but on this occasion we will omit it." Minneapolis Tribune. Columbian Stamps. There are to be three thousand mil lion Columbian stamps of the various denominations, varying from 1 cent to $5. The figure of Columbus appears in each - looking at land in the penny stamp and in chains in the two-dollar variety. This is the recommendation of postage stamps which appeared as part of John Wanamaker's very last official report, and which is now being extensively used by dealers in old postage stamps as an advertisement of the excellence of their wares: "The collecting of stamps is deserving of encouragement for it tends to the cul tivation of artistic tastes and the study of history and geography, especially upon the part of the youug, by the ex amination and comparison of stamps of different nations of the world, and to a more accurate knowledge of their I ostal systems. New York Sun. Value of Musketry Training. A writer in a German war journal, commenting on tho experience of the most recent wars, says that the new rifie has. reduced all armies to nearly the same level so far as arms are con cerned. Even the eflect of the indivi duality of the men will be to a certain extent lost, and the advantage will now he on the side of those who have had the best training. This can only be tested when within ranges at which small objects can be aimed at. The grand end of musketry instruc iist. now- be to make men accu- rite shots at distances of from oOO j to GOO yards. j Tho Touricl3 Quid for tho Ila- : waiian Islands can be had at this office.
