Owing to the pressure on ppace
caused by the interesting budget
of foreign news, received by the
barkentine Irmgard, our editorial
comment 13 necessarily curtailed
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
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 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
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
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.
Samuel M. Shortridge and Miss
Emtua Spreckels to he
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
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
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.

PER THE COMMITTEE.
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
