Eight attorncya havo rc contly bcon dlsbarrcd frotu practlco bo foro that oillco for not contluctlng thoir buainess undor houorablo mothoda, and tho Washington llrni of John Woddor burn & Co., has beon ordorcd to ahow cauBO why it should not bo dlsbnrrod for having mado "fraudulcnt, dccop tlvo and inipropor soarchcs, with in tcnt to dofrnud nnd tho rcsult of dc frnudlng clIontB, to thoir injury; nnd wrong doing, to tho ecnndnl nnd re pronch of tho pntcnt ofllcc, nnd con trnry to cquily nnd good ruorals," nnd for othcr causcs. Ceiitain gontlemon, notably, Mr. Clnus Spreckela, tho California sugar king, hnvo becn exprcsslng moro con fldonco in tho rojection of tho trcaty for tho annexation of Hawaii, to which thoynro vlolently oppoacd, than thoro is nnything in eight to justify. Uut thoro is a reneou for thoir confldcuco, as will bo fully nppnrent boforo Con gresa mcots next winter. It lics in tho manipulation of a big corruption fund to crcato a public ecntimcnt agninat tho trcaty with tho hopo tbat enough Scnatora can bo influenccd to prcvcnt tho neceasary two-thirds voto boing ob taincd for ratification of tho trcaty. And all of thia corruption fund will not como from American augar mcn. A consldorablo portion of it will como from tho accrct fund of Europcan gov ernmcnts. Thero aro at leaet two Europoan nationa which arc moro in tercatod in tho failuro of tho trcaty than Jnpan ia. But boing smarter than tho Japa, they havo not protcstcd and will not protcst agninat tho treaty, but will try to accompliah ita defeat by tho uso of money, juat as they havo beforo tricd, and aomotimca auccecdcd in in fiuencing tho courso of tho Unitcd Statea. It ia rcally a grcat pity that thia acbemo could not bo headed of! by tho ratification of tho trcaty by tho Scnato at thia sesaion, but it ia known that tho opponcnta of tho trcaty would not allow a voto to bo taken on tho treaty at thia acssion, evon if it wero poaaiblo to koep a quorum of tho Scn ato in Washington for any conaiderablo timo aftcr tho tariff bill haa bccn passed. Wliy not n Protectorntc. Why ia annexation neceesary to safeguard American interesta to Ha waii? Why would not a protectorate sufflcc? Thcao questions, aaked in enliro good faitb, deserve an nnswer. An nexation is necoBBary bccauso a pro tectorate has becn tricd and hna failed. Tho Unitcd Statcs haa cxerciacd a vir tual protectorato over Hawaii for more than flfty yeara. Away back in 1842 Preaident Tyler in a mea9ago to tho Scnato gavo formal notico that tho United Statea would reaont tho at tempt of any foreign Power to tako poaaeasion of or to colonizo Hawaii. From that day to tho pre&ent, thia haa bcen tho declarcd attitudeof thc Amer ican Government. Prcsidcnt Tyler'a warning wa8 reiterated by Danicl Web ster as Secretary of Stato in 1851, and later by Secretaries Marcy, Sew ard, Fiah and Blainc. And yot all theao avowala that Hawaii waa within our " aphero of inlluenco " and a dopen dcncy of tho United Statcs havo not aufJlced to maintain tho pcaco and in dopendonco of tho i&lands. In 1843 . Hawaii waa forcibly aeized by n Britiah frigate, whoao captain, however, acted without instructions. In 1840 a French ndmiral took poasea sion of thc islanda, and hcld thom for a f ow montha. Two yenrs lnter a French naval forco threatened Honolulu and would havo doatroyed it if Webster had not aent ono of hia thundorbolt commu- nicatlona to tho Paria Government. During our War of tho llcbollion Ha- wail waa agam mcnacod by Grcat Brit ain in n manner which causcd Preai aent ijincoin anu nis auviaers grnvc concern. Tho difllculty waa that a protectorato cavo ua no power to prenare defencea to protect Hawaii ngainat attack, to hoiat our llag thore, or to aBaumo any of the prorogatives of aovcroignty. If thoro had been fortilications commnnd ing Honolulu, held by American guns and Amorlcnn gunncra, with tho largo American population bchind thom. which formal annexation would briug, tho tranqull security of tho ialanus novor would have been threatened in all theao flfty yeara. Hawaii would havo beon aa inviolablo as Nantuckot. Tho Britiah captain and tho Fronch nd miral who thought ao little of bullying tho natlvo monarchy would novor havo darod to dofy American authority ea tabliahcd in tho ialandf, for that would mean a certaiu war with tho United Statea. Even an independent Government of white mon has failed to guarantco tho neutrallty of Hawaii. A yoar after Preaident Dole begnn hia adminiatra tion n sccrot oxpedition landed arms ncar Honolulu and nn attnck wns mado upon tho Government soldicry nnd po lico which produced grcat nfarm and cost Bovcral Hvcb, ono of thom that of a gallnnt young Americnn. Thia nt tack known now in Hawaii as tho "Engltah robellion," although, of courao, tho bottor claaa of Britiah rcsl donta novor countenanced it waa or ganlzed by Britiah advcnturers, aidod by half-brocd rufllana nnd vagabonds from tho Honolulu sluma. Altogethor, it was n diabolical conBpiracy, and if it had not beon mot and cruahed with a flrni hand at tho outsot, mlght havo led to terrlblo consequonccs. Ono of tho purpoaos of the leadora was to maaaacro tho Amorican ofllclals by meana of dynamltc. Tho new danger to Hawnii which haa ariscu out of tho Jnpancso complica tioua thia ycnr is frcsh in tho public memory. Thia ia cumulativo proof of tho inadcquncy of a protectorate.

Ofllcersand aailora "go down to tho aea in Bhipa" to " do buBi neaa on tho grent deep," and have thoir homca on ahore, but Mrs. Caraon has hor homo on tho sca, and only goes nshoro for businces or pleasure.

For just how many years Mrs. Car aon has been mnking her homo on thc North Atlantic nobody seema to know exactly, but Bho was going back and lornaru betwocn oNew xorn ana iitver nool for aomo timo boforo tho " Lu cania" act forth for tho flret timo. When the big Cunarder waa launched Mrs. Carson inspccted her and conclud cd to tako board on hcr. She selected n roomy cabin, and setting up her Larea and Penates thercin, settled down com fortably to enjoy her now homo. Tho " .Lucania" is now in ner twenty- sixth round trip; that is, she has cross- ed tho ocean utty-one times. uniy twico beforo the preacnt trip haa Mrs. Caraon been abaent from the steamer when ahe plunged" tho ocean biuo." Therofore aho has croaaed the ocean forty-aix timea on tho " Lucania." For two yeara tho ahip haa been her floating homo. Sho has been on dcck in tho gentle breezoa of aummcr and tho flerco galea of winter; has eeen the boauty of tho sighta of starlight and moonlight, and tho aighta of darkness and storm. Somctimes when tho vessel ia in port aho goos to a hotel for a day or two; more often aho does not leavo tho ahip for sho ia a ateady boarder. Of tho rea&ons for Mrs. Caraou'a choico of a boarding-house only the bare outllnes aro known. She is aup poaed to be n widow. She ia known to bo a woman of means, nnd to cordinlly dialiko nnd diBtrust tho rclatives to whom her properly will go upon her death. Sho doea not want to bo whcre they can get at her, and ahe doea liko tho aea. So, instead of going to somo out-of-tho-way placo on thecontinent to live, whero sho would be loneaome, ahe chooscs tho Atlantic ocean aa her homo and the "Lucania" aa her boarding housc. Then sho haa thc beuellt of tho aalt soa air, which may prolong her life beyond that of her waiting rolatives. She has tho luxury of aalt wator baths all tho ycar round, good attendnnco nnd n bounliful tnblo. Sho nlao hns plonty of company, and forms plcasant ac quaintauces among tho pasaengera who como and go acroaa the ocean ferry. MrB. Cnrson ia nbout forty-fivo yeara old, and is slight in pcrson. Sho is a woman of education and reflnement, and acoms to cnioy thoroughly her strango lifo. Nobody knows how many times she has croaaed tho ocean sinco aho took up her homo on tho " bound ing billow," but her long exporionco has mado hcr a good aailor, and sho knowa all about tho ahip and tho hand- ling of her in storm and calm. Why Mrs. Carson did not make tho preBent trip on tho " Lucania" tho peoplo on thc ship do not know, and aro making Burmi8C8 rcgarmng tno usual occur rence. It ia Buppoaed that somo important buaineBB connccted with her proporty cauBcd this breok in her life. It is confldontly expectcd that aho will bo aboaru next trip, for aho haa ahown no inclination to change her boarding house. It is poBBiblo that Mrs. Caraon has gono to inapcct somo other ahip, with nn idea of movinn. but tho "Lucania'a" peoplo do not think it probablc. Mrs. Carson aponda hcr monoy liborally, and, it is said, haa an nounced hor intonlion of gotting rid of all aho convoniently can, ao that tho heirs sho ao much dialikes will not havo so much to onjoy after death. Sho is an inguenwoman, it anouiu bo saiu, anu her properly is in England. Ono of tho "Lucania'a " noonlo aaid vcaterdav " I do not know whv Mrs. CarBou did not como this trip, am sure.

Au Anccdoto of Lincoln. In tho courso of nn nrticlo In tho July St. Ificholas, Mary Lillian Ilorr rdatcs tho following charnctcristic anccdoto of Lincoln: Once whilo on his wny to WnBhington ns Preaident, tho traln stoppcd n little timo In tho town of Allegheny, Pcnntyl vnnln. Around tho stntion n grcnt crowd gathored, cager to sco tho now President. Thoy shoutcd nnd chccred until Lincoln hnd to appcnr on tho rcnr plntform of his car. IIo bowed and smiled; but tho crowd was so noisy ho did not try to spcak to thetn. Very ncar to tho platform stood n miner, wcaring a rcd shirt and bluo ovcralls, and carrying n dlnner-pnil. Liko tho rest ho had etopped hoping to sco Mr. Lincoln. Tho workman was almost n giant In size, and towored head nnd sboulders abovo thc crowd. No doubt he hnd heard that Lincoln also wns vory tall; nnd, encouraged by tho friendly faco, tho workman sud denly wnved his baro nrm nbovo his head, nnd callcd out: "Hi, thero, Abo Lincoln lI'm taller than you yes, a eight taller! " This loud speech silenced tho crowd by ita boldnose, nnd a laugh nroso. But Mr. Lincoln, leaning forward with a good-humorcd Btnilo, said quietly: " My man, I doubt it; in fact, I'm sure I am tho taller. However, como up, and let's meaBure." Tho crowd mado wny, tho workmnn climbed to tho platform, and stood back to back with tho President-elect. Each put up n hnnd to seo whoso hcnd overtopped. Evidently Mr. Lincoln was tho victor; for, with n smilo of sntisfaction, ho turned and offered his hnnd to his bcaten rival, saying cor dially: " I thought you were miataken and I wns righl; but I wishcd to bo sure nnd to hnvo you satisfled. However, wo aro friends anyway, aren't we?" GraBping the outstretched hand in a vigorous grip, tho workman replied: "Yes, Abo Lincoln; as long as I Hvel" St. Nicholas. Elizaheth Cndy Stnnton. Hero is an incident, which, to bo np preciated, nceds a glanco at tho swcet womanly face of tho young Mrs. Stan ton: Mrs. Stnnton was summering nt Sar atoga, cagerly enjoying the deligbts of that fascinatlng young watering-placo half a century ago n merry young mother, in great demand for her agrec ablo mannera and sparkling conversa tion, ns wcll na for her talented per formances upon tho guitar. Chntting with n friend ono dny, tho Womnn Question that bugbear of Iho momont was brought up. " Isn't it droad ful," ho romnrkcd, 'to think of n woman ao uneexing herself na nctunlly to ap pear beforetho LeciElature nt Albanj?" Naturally enough, tho heroino of thia very shocking proceduro protested against this intorprotatlon of woman's snhere: vot, amused by her friend's faux pas, mischievously sho led him on.
