The new3 article which appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle of July 10, out of which the royalists are endeavoring to suck a drop of consolation, has the misfortune to bo founded wholly upon opinion without regard to the facts. The Associated Press dispatches by British Columbia contained noth ing upon which to base such an opinion, and the only sentence therein which might give rise to puch a view was added to the dis patches after their arrival in San Francisco, and was entirely with out the authority of fact. The news article out of which our roy alist friends are endeavoring to manufacture a criticism on the S2gregation policy of the Provi sional government, bears the very evident ear marks of a certain firm of San Francisco royalists, who, following the lead of the sugar trust, are endeavoring to discredit the present government at all times and by any means. There will probably be similar "news articles" appearing in the San Francisco press immediately after the arrival of tho steamer Australia, but wc doubt very much whether they will bo quoted hero by the royalist press since the disgraceful happenings of tho past week. There is something incomprehen sible in the late actions of Mr. J. O. Carter, which his friends do not at tempt to understand and which, almost without exception, they re gret. The fact is undeniable that Mr. Carter's name was never men tioned in connection with the of the board of health in Kala- lau anair, until nyT an unwar IfTasmade upon Pres ident W.'O. Smith, by the evening paper, presumably acting as Mr. Carter's mouthpiece since his resig nation from the board. Those who have closely watched Mr. Car ter's political career since the cam paign of 1S90-91, do not feel the same surprise as do those who still persist in comparing his previous record and fight for good govern ment in Hawaii with his later course and position. The proceedings in bankruptcy being taken against Mr. Samuel Parker have raised very little com ment. As far as Mr. Parker is per sonally concerned, it is a misfor tune, but one which has long been looked for. The only surprise ex pressed has been that the crash did not happen long ago. Yet there is a lesson attached to Mr. Parker's ' misfortune which should not be overlooked. Samuel Parker, Esq., belongs to a class of native resi dents who have long aspired to lead public affairs, and most of whom have failed in the financial man agement of their own affairs. In fact the men referred to have only displayed an inclination to turn to politics and governmental affairs when they have felt their wealth slipping away through their per sistent improvidence. The result has been that instead of developing statesmen the country has been cursed during tho last ten years of the monarchy, with a needy crowd of political parvenus, who have disgraced both themselves and the country. We publish elsewhere the two letters from Dr. George Trousseau, mentioned yesterday, in which he gives in detail his reasons for resigning from the board of med ical examiners of leprosy. It is but fair to state that Dr. Trousseau has held these view3 for some time and has before spoken of his posi tion on the leprosy question to members of different boards of health with whom he has been associated. How far the doctor's views are substantiated by deter mined medical facts and the con sensus of medical opinion will be hereafter discussed, as the occa sion arises. That his views are worthy of calm consideration and careful analysis in the light of all the obtainable facts, none will deny. As the doctor ha-? some what unnecessarily, we think, taken occasion to insist that hi3 present position and res ignation have nothing what ever to do with political questions or issues, he ha?, inadvertently per haps, suggested an explanation of his course, after so many months of delay, which, if it becomes nec essary, will receive the same care ful investigation and comment. TESTING NEW Ail Platen For Cruisers Tried at the Proving Ground. Kxcellont Itesult Obtained rt-nm Nickel Steel Even lie I tor 4ulta OMalnel Krom t!w PriJeotile. Washington, July 11. The third of the series of armor-plate tests of world-wide interest and importance took place today at the naval proving grounds on the Poto mac river. The tests were for the acceptance of the armor and for a premium, it being stipulated that if the plate3 resisted penetration under a certain proscribed velocity the makers should receive a pre mium of $30 a ton in addition to the contract prico of .$572 a ton. The first test was of a nine-inch plate, a sample of the side armor of the monitor Monadnock. It was nickel-steel, weighed ten tons and was made by the Carnegie-Frick Company. Three Holtzer's projec tiles, weighing 250 pounds each were fired against it from an 8-inch rifle, the muzzle being fifty-eight feet from the face of the target. The first projectile had a velocity of 1400 feet a second at the mo ment of impact, and penetrated the plate and oak backing to a depth of 11 :7 inches. The second projectile, with a striking velocity of 1GS3 feet, went through the plate, three feetfroak backing and lost itsel'in the earth against which thofefatt was built. The third ES2J had a velocity of 153G leet and penetrated the plate and backing to a depth of 14 inches. The plate well withstood the strain of the attack, no cracks be ing perceptible, and it fully met every requirement for acceptance. But the result of the second shot deprived the makers of any chance for a premium. Depending on the test were about 250 tons of plate, involving nearly $150,000. The second plate was a sample of the curved plates for the bar bette of the Indiana, made by the Bethlehem company, and, like the first, of nickel-steel. It was 17 inches thick and weighed 314 tons. It was subjected to an attack from a 12-inch rifle which threw a mon ster Carpenter shell weighing 850 pounds. Its muzzle was .319 feet from the face of the plate. The striking velocity of the first shot was 1322 feet a second and it penetrated to a depth of 1G.G inches. The second shot was fired with a velocity of 1495 feet a sec ond and went 3 inches into the oak backing. The third and last shot, to deter mine whether or not a premium should be paid, had a velocity of 1S5S feet a second. When the smoke and dust following the dis charge was lifted it was found that the shell had gone clear through the plate and thirty-six inches of the oak backing, and was then de flected into the air, plunging into the river some hundreds of yards away, or was lost in the woods on the hillside. The plate secured for the makers the acceptance of the whole con tract, amounting to from 500 to 700 tons, but earned no premium. Like the Monadnock plate it showed no cracks under the ter rific strain to which it had been subjected. Even more satisfactory than the showing made by the plates was that of the projectiles. The S-inch shells were of the Holtzer conical pattern and the 12-inch of the Carpenter conical pattern. All the shells recovered appeared wholly unchanged to the unpracticed eye, and the gauge showed they had been disturbed to such a small de gree that they might again be fired with the attachment of a new strip for the rifling. After the tests were concluded all the officials and experts ex pressed unbounded gratification at the results. FOREIGN NEWS. Observing the Comet. Alraxy, July 12. The comet discovered in Salt Lake city on July 8 is, according to the orbit determined at D :uiey observatory, receding from th j eari'u at a rapid rate. It is now about 40,000,000 miles from the earth. New Havex, Conn., July 12. Prof. Elkins, of the Yale observa tory, is making observations of the "naked eye" comet discovered by a Salt Lake city amateur on Sunday night. The jirofessor describes the new comet as an exceedingly beau tiful object in appearance, about the size of a star of the second or third magnitude. A number of photographs of the heavenly stran ger were made last evening, and his progress will be studied when ever the weather conditions permit the use of Yale's instrumentarium. Princeton, X. J., July 12. At 9 :50 o'clock last night Assistant Professor Taylor Reed, of the uni versity observatory, was able to see the new comet for the first time. He turned the telescope upon it, and pronounced it of between the second and third magnitude, and about ten minutes in diameter. Smallpox in Chicago. Chicago, July 10. Three cases of smallpox are now at the pest house. The patients are : Herman Luedtke, 21 years old ; John Pola nex, G years old ; and F. S. Wood, 2G years old. The two men were employed at the McCormick reaper works. Wood was taken to the pesthouse Sunday. All day Sun day the medical staff of the health department was busy in the neigh borhood where the disease was dis covered vaccinating people who might have been exposed to the contagion. Hundreds of people were vaccinated. The doctors then transferred the scene of action to the McCormick reaper works, where all the employees sabjected their arms to the vaccine points. The source of contagion was not dis covered. Fighting Fire. A delegation from the Kansas City Fire Department, which has been in London attending the in ternational congress of firemen, surprised the London fire brigade by hooking up their horses and getting out of tho firc-houso in SJ seconds. The British team occu pied more than a minute in the same work, the French 3 minutes, and the Germans nearl' 10 min utes. The exploits of the Ameri can team excited much enthusiasm not only in London, but in Edin burgh and Glasgow, where they gave exhibitions. Ilaytian Ilepuhlic Siuugjliily Case. . Portland, July 12.

In response to inquiries in the house of commons today, Q. E. Russell, parliamentary secretary for the India office, stated the object of the recent silver legis lation in India was not to fix the value of the rupee at sixteen pence or any other amount, but to pre vent a future fall in price. He add ed it had not yet fixed the ratio of the value between the rupee and the sovereign. The Cholera in Mecca. Alexandria, July 10. An Egyp tian medical delegate from Mecca says that deaths from cholera there are double the number officially re ported. In the valley of the Mouna it is impossible to bury the dead, and the road between there and Mecca is strewn with corpses. In Mecca bodies lie decomposing for days, OTving to the impossibility to get grave diggers. For Home Rule. New York, July S.

If you want a cage and it is presumed you do, wait a day or so longer and we will show you some beauties, built on the most approved styles of birdcage architecture. The word about washing machines was just in time to add years to the lives of three society ladies, who for econo my sake, decided to dispense with their Japanese wash ladies and do their own work. The "Western Empire," the best washing machine of this or any other age, will do the washing for ten people in as many minutes; they cost very little and you should have one now. A toilet set of eleven pieces for four dollars, strikes you as being remarkably cheap for a good article dear enough for a poor one. Ours are good ones the best the English make for the money. You'd pay $10 for the set in San Francisco and think you had a bargain; what do you call it at S4 ? The Hawaiian Hardware Co., 307 Fort Street, Honolulu.
