Explorer Peary's Bad Luck,
A dispatch from St. John's,
of July 31, zys : Lieutenant Peary,
according to reports from Labrador,
was in bad straits there last week.
Ho reached Battle harbor on July
18th, after a passage of three days
from here, during which ho encoun
tered very tempestuous weather.
The heavy seas swept over the ship,
dalaaging her and injuring the
burro3 that arc part of his outfit.
They were perishing when Battle
harbor wa3 reached, and he stopped
two days to enable them to recuper
ate and to repair damages.
An attempt to buy dogs there
was unsuccessful, there being none
to bo had. Ho tried Turnavick,
the next port of importance, but
there the residents demanded eo
much for them that the lieutenant
declined to bu'. He next tried
Hopedale, but there, too, the in
habitants asked cxhorbitant prices.
He was contemplating slaughtering
the burr03 when the Labrador mail
steamer Windsor Lake met the
Falcon there.
Lieutenant Peary was much ex
ercised at the delay which was
befing caused, and which would
injuriously affect his project of
reaching Greenland. By rights he
should be there by this time. The
Kite, with the relief expedition,
reached McCorniick bay last year
on August 2d. Lieutenant Peary
doc3 not believe he can reach port
before the end of this month or
reach Bowdoin bay before late in
August. Ho will therefore run the
risk of finding the ica pack imper
vious or, if he get3 through, of hav
ing his steamer frozen in there all
winter.
Thi3 is the most likely contin
gency, and she also runs the risk
at this lato period of being ripped
and crushed by the heavy ice. Any
of these contingencies would seri
ously affect is not ruin the expedi
tion. Arms For Hawaii.
The San Francisco Call of July
29 prints a statement that within
the past month arms have been
shipped to Hawaii, and the belief
is thut an attempt is being niade
to placo tho natives in a position to
effect a successful counter revolu
tion against tho Provisional govern
ment. As Ions: sko as March, Winchos-
ter rifles and cartridges ?"r,;
have been shin- ' &outh
Seas bv 41 ,uMng fleet and most

jenty-eight cases of Winchester
iflc3 are also said to have been
- sent by steamer, consigned simply
to the initial 4kD." These weapons
were purchased of a local dealer by
a mysterious person, who refused
to say for whom they were in
tended, but the agent paid cash.
This was a month ago. The steam
ship people, however, deny that any
fucIi shipment was made.

Three thousand dollars worth of

The "Silvcrites" had a big mass
meeting in Metropolitan Temple
recently. About 3000 bi-metallists
were there.
The cruisade against side doors
and "Ladies Entrances" to saloons
still continues, the W. C. T. U.
pushing the matter.
It is provable that action will be
taken by; ho United States gov
ernment to nave the Sailors Home
property revert to the Federal
authorities, and that the govern
ment will run the place.
