TUESDAY, JUNE 27, 1893. PAPA HORDHOFi'S DEPARTURE. There is something pleasantly unique in the method used by our esteemed royalist contemporary in its vigorous defense of Papa Kord HofT and his rather sudden and lamented departure. There is some thing almost pathetic in the ancient and musty dispatch quoted with the venerable date of 1883, to show that the New York Herald did not recall Papa Nordhoff in 1893; It is just possible the Bulletin ante dated Mr. Bennett's dispatch to Papa Nordhoff to draw the public attention to its capacity for blun dering ; and it is also possible that Papa Nordhoff left that dispatch with our gullible contemporary to hide the real cause of his unex pected departure, which was not on account of the arrival of the dis patch in question. The Advertiser, with its usual magnanimity, endeavored to let Papa Nordhoff's departure down easy, merely eaying he was re called ; but as this was seemingly misunderstood, it was pointed out very politely, and discreetly we thought, " that he received a ' re quest ' or an intimation. ' to depart, from a source which he immedi ately obeyed." If our esteemed contemporary will do a little judi cious interviewing on certain points connected with Papa Nordhoff's departure it will quite likely find itself in possession of several facts which it will not care to publish at "one fell swoop." THE PILOTS WERE RIGHT. The opening of the harbor for the entry of the largest merchant steamers plying in ' this ocean is having its natural result in attract ing them hither. These vessels are entrusted to masters of first class ability whose judgment is relied on to do the best for tho in terest of the owners and under writers that circumstances will permit. While no instructions can be laid down, there is one rule that applies alike to all mail and pas senger steamers touching at way ports "as soon as the ship's bus iness is done, proceed on the voy age, tide and weather permitting." The shipmaster who understands his duties, and has the courage to execute them, will never allow any persuasions from ship or shore to swerve him from his line of duty. The other day there came into port the magnificient steamship China, the finest and largest speci men of the modern floating palace that h"a3 visited these islands. She arrived early in the morning, and Captain Seabury was only too eager to gratify a wish long enter tained of bringing his noble ship into port. She was visited, inspect ed and admired by hundreds. At the hour fixed when she arrived, having discharged her freight and passengers, and given her through tourists fully ten hours to visit all points of interest in the city, she started on her voyage again, the music of the Hawaiian band still wafted in pleasant strains as she passed beyond the bar into the open sea. And yet there are some who wanted the China detained five or six hours longer, presumably from mercenary motives and to hear a few more strains of Hawaiian music I The correspondence which -has been published relative to this detention clearly shows that Capt. Seabury wished to go at 5 r.M. in fact knew he ought to go when the ehio's work was finished. This determination was strongly backed by the pilot, who was unwilling to assume the responsibility of taking out such a large ship at midnight, when she was ready and should go out before. Both officers held heavy responsibilities the one as the agent of a great trust placed in his hands, with this injunction : "Take no chances;" the other as the guardian of the good name of the port, on an occasion of special interest, for, had any trifling mis hap occurred at a midnight hour, it could not have been remedied as readily as by daylight. No, both Captain Seabury and Pilot Shep herd did right in refusing the childish request to detain the steamer China six hours made by private persons. DISASTER IN THE OltlEXT. Nine Hundred Houses Burnsd Ten Persons Murdered Other Casualities. Victoria. (B. C), June 14. Ad vices fiom Japan by the Empress of Japan, which arrived last night from the Orient, state that a destructive fire occurred atAraicho, in the mid dle of Kubiki district, on the 18th ul timo, consuming 900 houses, a police station, a postoffice and the Town office. During the night of the 25th ultimo three men and seven women were murdered in a house at Akasaka Mu ra, in the Ishikawa district of Kara chi province. The murderer has been arrested. A sailing vessel which left the port of Shimoda on the 20th ultimo for Ta dotshu, in Shanshu province, was caught in a severe tempest during the same night, when about ten miles off Onma 1'oint, En9hu province. She was completely wrecked and the whole of her crew of twelve Japanese were drowned, with the exception of the pilot. The pilot Is said to have been in the water for over ten hours, keep ing himself afloat by the aid of a piece of wood. The Government has just carried out the important financial operation of redeem iur 12,000,000 yen worth of 6 per cent, public loan funds. It is semi-otlicially announced that the re maining portion of the 6 per cent, debt, namely, 6,000,000 yen, will be redeemed in October next. The expedition of Lieutenant Dunji to the Kurile islands has come to a tragic end. About the last of March the .Lieutenant, with a party of thirty men, set out in small boats from To- kio to the inhospitable Kurile3 to form a settlement. Such a long voyage northward In boats so small, invested the expedi tion with peculiar hazard and inter est. The Emperor contributed to the aid of the enterprise and tho people regarded it with enthusiasm, as the band of men were of tried military capacity. But the expidition came to a sudden end, two of the boats with seventeen men, being lost in a storm. HAWAIIAN TRADE. Return of Confidence and Be lief in the Future. In a previous statement of our trade relations with tho Hawaiian Islands it was shown that in the month of May the exports from here were con siderably ahead of the record for the same month last year. Since January 1st the monthly exports to the isl ands, compared with 1S92, have been as follows: Months ls9a. January $214,717 February ." 232,43s March 241,942 April 214,723 May 200,103 1S02. $223.27 237,152 281,011 227,039 210,524 Totals $1,1G3,9S5 $1,184,003 It will be seen that the exports this year have shown a comparative de crease in each month with the excep tion of May. In the past month there was a gain of $49,G39 as compared with the same month of 1S92. Of late there has been considerable activity in the Hawaiian trade, and while the ex ports for the past five months were $20,608 less than for the corresponding time last year this apparent loss is due mainly, if not wholly, to lower prices in this market. If a thorough analysis of our commerce with the islands were made it would undoubt edly be found that, considering the number of vessels employed, freights, commissions, profits on shipments, etc., the record for this year has many features of encouragement. The gain of nearly $50,000 for the past month is good evidence of a partial recovery from the depression hitherto existing in trade circles at the islands. It certainly shows a return of confi dence and belief in the future of the Hawaiian Islands as regards our poli tical and business relations with them under the present or prospective ad ministration of affairs there. S. F. Examiner, June 14. TIIE GERMAN ELECTION. Ten VartJea That Will Uar.lly Re flect Popular Sentiment. The election of the new .Reichstag in Germany took place on Juno 15. xne number of members to be elec ted is 397, and it is said that there were 1500 candidates in the held, or nearly four candidates to each seat Tho consequence will be that the popular vote will be so split up that it will not reflect popular sentiment, notwithstanding the expedient of second and third elections where no candidate has received a majority of the ballots cast. Among the parties which are running candidates may bo enumerated the Old Conserva tives, the Free Conservatives, the National Liberals, the Catholic Cen ter, the Progressists, the Democrats, the Poles, the Alsace Lorrainers, the .social Democrats and tho Anti Sera ites.

MINISTER BLOUNT, EXPRESSES HIS VIEWS TO AN ADVERTISER REPORTER. WILL PROBABLY LEAVE ON JULY xgth. Ills Report to the I'nlted States Gov ernment will Co with Dim. An Advertiser reporter, called on Minister Blount yesterday morn ing after the arrival of the bark Andrew Welch to make inquiries concerning his successor. The minister appeared to be much pleased at the news that his successor had been appointed, and although he had himself received no official information on the sub ject, seemed disposed to regard the newspaper dispatch as correct. He said that he did not know Judge Sneed, except by reputation as a jurist, and could therefore make no comment on his appoint ment. When asked when he expected the new minister to arrive, Mr. Blount said, "I do not think it likely he will arrive Thursday on the Alameda, for in order to sail on that ship he would have to make very hurried preparations for de parture. He will probably come on the Australia which is due here July 12, and in that event I shall try to sail for the United States, July 19th. ''The new minister will undoubt edly wish to consult with mo for a few days after his arrival on the condition of affairs here, but if he comes on the Australia there will be plenty of time for that." When asked if he would take his final report home with him or mail it Mr. Blount said he did not know, but intimated that he would not trust it to the mails. Mrs. Blount was more pleased than her husband when she heard the news. She has had a delight ful visit here, and the ladies of Ho nolulu have exerted themselves to make her visit a pleasant one. But notwithstanding this for some time she has been anxious to get back o her home and her children. BLOUNT'S SUCCESSOR. Judge Snecd of Tennessee to be J Jlinister to Hawaii. n Washington, June 14. It i3 re ported here tonight that President Cleveland has decided upon a suc cessor to Mr. Blount in Honolulu. Blount, it is claimed, has repeat edly asked to be relieved. The appointment will probably be made tomorrow. Rumor has it that Judge Sneed of Memphis is the man selected for the post, dou bly important in view of the grave questions that may arise within the next three years. Mr. Sneed has many admirers m Washing ton. He is a warm friend of the President, and his appointment will give satisfaction here. Memphis, June 14. It is re ported tonight that a telegram was received this afternoon by Judge T. L.T. Sneed from Secretary Gresham stating that the president had de cided to appoint him minister to the .Hawaiian Islands to relieve pecial envoy Blount. The ap pointment will probably be offi cially announced tomorrow. Judge Sneed is one of the ablest lawyers of the Tennessee bar, having for many years been a member of the supreme court, he enjoying a lucra tive law practice before the State and the United States supreme court, and is regarded as one of the best constitutional lawyers in the country. He is an expert linguist, a profound thinker and scholar, and as an orator ho has few su periors. Judge Sneed is at his country home, and could not be interviewed tonight.

Persons interested in ranches will be glad to learn that their interests have been looked after by a man with a brain expansive enough to contemplate all the annoy ances of poor fencing and devise a way to reduce the cost of building a good one. We have secured the sole agency for a "locked fence" which effectually resists the attacks of cattle and brings the cost to less than the con ventional wire fence. We have not called your attention to it before, because we have not yet had enough of the fence to supply the demands of people who have heard it talked of by the few we have shown samples to. The Makee Sugar Co., at Kealia uses it and Mr. Wm. Blaisdell, the manager says: "It is the most economical fence I have seen on the islands anywhere and it will stand every test in regard to durability better than any of them. "We build no other fence now and have miles of it in use. I cheerfully recommend it to all wishing a fence that will challenge any other tor cheapness and strength. "It is especially adapted for ranch fencing where trans portation is expensive and difficult. Not more than one half the number of posts are required as in ordinary wire fences." If only in the matter of posts there is economy it is enough to recommend it to any one as posts are an ex pensive item in fence building. Another saving is in time required. Tho locked fence can be built quicker than any other. We will be pleased to show samples or supply parties with full information on the subject. The Hawaiian Hardware Co., 307 Fort Street, Honolulu.
