The sad news of the death of General Samuel Chapman Arm strong is printed in another column. He was born in the Hawaiian Isl ands and first made his mark here as an organizer and leader of pub lic movements. Perhaps no man has been better and more favor ably known in Hawaii than he. After hi3 removal to the United States, many years ago, he became prominent as a business man. At the breaking out of the war of the rebellion he aro3e rapidly from the ranks until at the close of the great conflict ho was brevetted general in recognition of his services to his country in tho -field. Unt the greater part of his life work was performed in the esta blishment and successful carrying out of the great industrial school at Hampton, Virginia, whose original aim was to ameliorate the conditions of the newly -freed negroes, through the education of their children. In this great and good work he labored unceasingly for years. Before the closing of his life, the educational scope of the school had been greatly extended, and the field of usefulness conse quently widened. He was at the time of his death considered one of the forement men of the United States. He wa3 loved and honored wherever known, and his death will be as deeply re gretted here as it is by his countrymen in the Great Republic. THE POST OFFICE CLERKS.

BLOUNT'S AUTHORITY. WILL PROBABLY BS INSTRUCT ED TO MAKE A NEW TREATY. The Tenor of the ComniIloner He port Still Secret. Washington, May 10. The pres ident has appointed James II. Blount of Georgia envoy extraordi nary and minister jdenipotentiary to the Hawaiian islands to succeed John L. Stevens. Blount's commis sion bears the date of yesterday and it will be sent to him by the next mail for Honolulu. It 13 un derstood that the change was de cided on at the cabinet meeting yesterday. The report from Blount, mailed in Honolulu during the last week in April, came to Secretary Gresh ham yesterday morning, and was taken by him to the cabinet meet ing. Owing to its confidential character the contents were kept secret, but it is presumed that it contains such information that the president is determined to lose no time in commissioning the new minister to succeed Mr. Stevens. . Now that Mr. Blount's official status has been changed from com missioner to minister, there is nat urally great anxiety to know what will be the next move in Hawaiian matters. The officials f the State department are a3 mysterious as ever. The only statement Secre tary Gresham would make today on the Hawaiian subject was that Commissioner Blount had been ap pointed minister, and instructions had gone to ex-Minister Stevens directing him to turn over the lega tion to Mr. Blount. What the tenor of Blount's letter is must remain a secret until such a time as the administration is will ing to make known its position in re gard to Hawaii. That he is against annexation there can be no doubt. As a result of Mr. Blount's re port a new set of instructions is being prepared and will go out by the next mail steamer. It is believed that the instruc tions authorize him to negotiate a treaty of some kind which will in sure American supremacy in the islands without interference with internal affairs. Concerning the report that a new commission is coming from Hawaii to negotiate a new treaty with the United States, it is said at the State department that it is not at all probable, and whatever negotiations may be con ducted will be through Minister Blount. It is understood that Mr. Blount's appointment is not permanent, but was made expressly for the purpose of having him conduct negotiations which will determine the future re lations of this country with Ha waii. Mr. Blount, his friends say, would probably not care to accept this third-class mission under any other conditions. Having served as chairman of the House foreign affairs committee it is not likely that he would care to take a subor dinate place when there are $17,000 missions floating around unless there were some special reasons. A SOCIAL EVENT. V Samuel M. Shortridge and Miss Emtua Spreckels to he Married. There is at present a matrimonial union on the tapis of no inconsid erable interest to social, financial and political circles, inasmuch as it promises to unite great wealth and beauty to eloquence, genius and political prominence. This means that Miss Emma Spreckels, the daughter of Claus Spreckels, the well-known capital ist and sugar magnate, will in the near future be led to the altar by Samuel M. Shortridge, the distin guished young orator, lawyer and politician. When the wedding will take place cannot yet be stated, but when it does take place it will be one of the notable events in the social history of San Francisco. The bride, besides being a mil lionairess in her own right, i3 a member of a family known all over the country because of the great, enterprises in which the male members have achieved wealth and prominence. The groom has made a high reputation for himself by his forensic powers and his rapid rise at the bar. With the freshness of youth yet upon him Mr. Shortridge has achieved such prominence in the field of politics that he is spoken of in certain quarters as likely to be one of the candidates for the guber natorial nomination on the Repub lican ticket two years hence. Of Miss Spreckels it is unneces sary to speak, except to say that she is a young lady who has been noted for her retiring manners, when she had every opportunity to shine in society. She has never manifested any desire to make the social conquests that the wealth and prominence of her family easily placed within her reach. Without being secluded in her habits she has never shown any special fondness for gaining social triumphs. For ;his reason her name has not frequently been bandied about in the society gostip of the dav. As for Mr. Shortridge, he owes his enviable position solely to his own talents and energy. Through his own unaided exertions he has risen, in a few years, to an eleva tion that few men reach after more difficult and longer struggles. He is a younger brother of Charles M. Shortridge, editor and proprietor of the San Jose Mercury, and Mrs. Clara S. Foltz, the well-known lady lawyer. He gained a State wide reputation in 18S4, when very 3'oung, by making an exceptional ly brilliant and effective canvass of the State for James G. Blaine. Un til then he was utterly unknown. Since then he has been conspicuous on the stump in every campaign, and as a powerful advocate at the bar. Among the first and strongest friends he made when he began the practice of his profession in this city was John D. Spreckels, of the Oceanic Steamship Company. Mr. Spreckels early appreciated the talents of Mr. Shortridge, and this appreciation ripened into close personal friendship. It is not sur prising, therefore, that the friend ship between Mr. Spreckels and the eloquent young lawyer should have resulted in a corresponding family intimacy. In time this brought about an engagement of marriage between Mr. Shortridge and Miss Spreckels. Owing to the wealth and powerful political con nections of the contracting parties the contemplated wedding will in all likelihood exert considerable influence on the trend of political events. Mr. Shortridge was already on the high road to political pre ferment, and this alliance will bring to him aid of a most potent character. S. F. Chronicle. Auction Saks, Y JAS. K. MORGAN. THIS DAY.

PER THE COMMITTEE. 3300-4 t buppl 307 J, toy 23, i3g$. Diogenes when a member from his country to the state legislature used to go with a lantern, looking for an honest man. History does not record whether he found what he was looking for. The trouble was not in the legislaturo-however or in the men, the difficulty was entirely with the lanterns. By the "V. G. Irwin' we received more of those con venient crank lift lanterns which will enable you to find anything, even a correct solu tion of the present political problem. They are made in nickel, copper or tin and pre sent a very fine appearance besides giving a good light, and the crank at the side, (not the one on the handle) makes it im possible to burn your ringers. It has been a question in our minds whether any dealers in Honolulu sell more garden hose than we do. We have de cided in the negative. There's scarcely a vessel coming to this port, but what has brought us large quantities of a super ior quality of hose. We believe our large sales now is the result of establishing early in our business career a reputa tion for keeping really good articles, particularly hose. The demand for the Fischer Steel Uange continues, and we are sending them to the homes of our customers nearly every day. This last lot is of a better quality of steel, and will last longer than any stove made. A gentleman wiio got one a week ago, reports that his cook baked a cake in eight minutes, the first time he tried the oven. The Hawaiian Hardware Co., 307 Fort Street. JUST-:-IN!
