ARE GOING HOME TO CELEBRATE,
Many Chinese Returning to Their
NEW YEAR'S DAY IS THE ATTACTION".
How They Travel on a Liner Scenes on
the Steamship China The Home
Going Instinct War Makes no Differ
ence Whaterer China to Celebrate.
LEASING indeed are
thoughts of a "visit
home." With that
idea governing him a
man will accomplish
There is magic ih the
words and inspiration
iu the thought. Jvery me romance
has its vein telling of effort to make a
"visit home." Few men develop
themselves without striking out into
the world. In the United States men
born in one State give their best efforts
to the upbuilding of a distant section
of the country. The home instinct is
strong in man. He may be away
from the paternal roof for half a cen
tury, but thoughts which cherish the
old nest are often uppermost. Half
the struggles of more than half the
civilized men have in the haze that
so frequently surrounds the aim of a
life, the picture of a home.
A very touching story is told to illus
trate the marvellous homing instinct
in animals. A fisherman on a bleak
coast in the north had a seal for a pet.
He became weary of it and carried it
far out to sea. In a few days it came
back weary and worn, but barking
joyfully. The fisherman was a brute.
tt hurried out the eves of the seal
and sent it out several hundred miles
ou a sailing vessel. Weeks elapsea
and the animal was forgotten. One
morning its dead body was found near
the home of the fisherman. Of the
VinmA fravpls of birds, horses and doers
there are innumerable interesting ac
counts. Thp onle of the east were for many
years after the modern nations of the
onrth hpcan to mix. a familv and a
home of themselves. Now they travel
all over the world. Almost every na
tionality of the earth is represented in
Wonnlnhi. ThA United States is a
Babel. Nearly all of these wanderers
are working in the hope of achieving
a triumphant nome-going. it ua
nftpn hpen said that the dream of a
Chinaman is to return to the flow
ery Kingdom with 55000. It is Known

A number ot marked improve
ments have lately been made about
NEW DEAL IN HAWAII.
The Planters Want to Have a Pro
tectorate Instead of Annexation.
The movement to annex Hawaii to
this country appears to be dying out
on its native heath, says the San
Francisco Chronicle of October 21st.
This is what various sugar men say
who have arrived in the city by the
loot two or three steamers. One cren-
tleman who is close to the centers of
influence and authority ac Jtionoiuiu
said yeserday that if a treaty of an
nexation should be proffered Hawaii
ivr fho TTniteo' States Government the
coming Hawaiian Senate would re
ject it. , . x ,

"There are germs of trouble in this

Hawaiian yesterday. "The effect of
planters' rule has thus far been to
bring an enormous number of Chinese
and Japanese to the county, many of
whom have gone into business and the
trades, thus making the lot of the
common white man hard. Now these
white men all turned out to bear arms
for annexation in the heiier mat,

would become a country in which a
white laborer or mechauic could make
a living. To find now that their hopes
