Shlpi'cd from America.
A Han Francisco dispatch says that
the rilles carried by the Hawaiian rebels
were from America, and the bullet which
killed Commissioner Carter was shipped
from Shu Francisco. According to tho
statement of the Lnglishiuun, Capt. Da
vis, who landed the arms in Hawaii, they
were loaded in a sailing vessel in San
Francisco and subsequently transferred
to his craft. This statement, made un
der oath, was received by a resilient by
the last steamer, but kept a secret until
recently. The arms were landed on the
island by ('apt. William Davis, master
of the ship Waimanallo, which, curiously
enough, was mortgaged by II. W. Castle,
the Hawaiian Commissioner.
Parliament la Open.
"With the usual iomp and ceremony,
the fourth session of the thirteenth Vic
torian Parliament was opened in Lon
don Tuesday afternoon. The customary
Guy Fawkes search was made by Lord
Chamberlain Carrington and a dozen of
the yeomen of the guard, and then the
house assembled and listened to the read
ing of the queen's speech. The pronounce
ment from tho throne was a distinct dis
appointment. It has been given out free
ly from ministerial sources that if the
Kosebery administration was to fall it
would fall lighting; that the speech, there
fore, would contain reference to all the
reforms which the liberal party approves,
regardless of their probable passage at
the present session. True, several im

A profound sensation was caused At

Kollins, of the Mountain View Methodist
Church, the most fashionable church in
the city, who has been giving a series of
very learned Sunday evening sermons,
has been appropriating without credit a
series of lectures delivered by the Rev.
Dr. Frank M. Bristol in Chicago and by
him published in book form. The lee
tures of Mr. Kollin nnd those from Dr.
Bristol's book were published side by Bide
and the identical words appeared in both.
Dr. Bristol's lectures were published un
der the title, "Providential Epochs," and
are entitled "The Renaissance," "The

Three lives were lost in Philadelphia
Thursday morning by a tire that was
caused by the upsetting of a coal oil lamp
by a cat. The Singlinger family were

Shortly after 1 o'clock the household cat
jumped upon a table and knocked over
a burning lamp. The blazing oil ran all
over the room and the interior of the
dwelling was soon ablaze. When the pa
rents and four of tho children had escaped
to tho street in their night clothes the
mother suddenly discovered that her twins
had been left in the burning house. She
rushed into the flames and succeeded in
reaching an upper room where the babes
were. This was the last seen of the wom

to the upper tlnor they found the mother

Every trolley line in the city of Brook
lyn was in operation Wednesday morning
except one. The strike is over. New
motermen and conductors have replaced
the men who went out in a lody on Jan.
14. The linemen who went out on a sym
pathetic strike a week later have broken
ranks on several lines and those whose
places had not been filled were taken
back. The. (5.000 men who went out in a
body are still holding out. They were
prepared for a long siege, and they say
they have plenty of money coming in
daily in contributions, aside from what
they had laid away from their wages.
The linos now have enough men to oper
ate all cars which are in condition to be
run. About one-third of the trolley cars
of Brooklyn have broken windows, dis
abled motors, or are otherwise incapaci
tated by the scrimmages they have been
through during the past sixteen days.
The strikers are now directing all their
attention to court proceedings. The law's
delays are proverbial, and whatever trou
ble the companies are given through at
tempts to compel operations by writs of
mandamus, or to obtain forfeiture of
charters through applications to the at

the present strike.

E. Everette, a prominent metallurgist,
who was employed by Eastern million
aires lo investigate the Monte Cristo gold
e.'iartz mines, says the recent closing of
the Everett smelter demonstrates that hi
report was correct and that the mines are
not feasible as a smelting proposition.
As a result he places the loss sustained
by John D. Rockefeller at $1,.J.XUXM.
Three million dollars was invested in
opening a railroad to the mines, which
are back of the city of Everett in the Cas
cade Mountains. Another $l,000,tHr)
was expended in the smelter and concen
trating plant, all of which was done upon
the favorable report of an expert metal
lurgist sent out from the East. Everette
reported adversely. Everette had a con
ference with Rockefeller in New York a
few weeks ago and reports him angry ut
those who led hin into investing money.

The bonding of government oilicial is

which there in great room for reform.
The irregularities and lack of system gov
erning the securities taken by the govern

ties were first inquired into by the ex
perts of the Dockery commission and
brought to the attention of the committee.
Recently the heads of several depart
ments and bureaus have been before the
subcommittee of appropriations which is
framing the legislative bill and it has
been shown that the security system is
probably more lax than that of any other
government. Many officers are bonded
for a term of four years, aud if, as often
happens, there is delay in the appoint
ment of the successors and they continue
to officiate, the government is left with
out any guaranty or means of making
good losses, if any are incurred through
their aets. This lapse is frequent in the
cases of first-class postmasters, but the
assistant treasurers of the United States
present the most conspicuous examples,
since their londsmen, according to de
cisions by the courts, ce.ise to be responsi
ble at the em! of four years and the gov
ernment is left with no recourse in case
of default in the interim until the appoint
ment of their successors.

Lowestoft advices say that visits made
to all the various life-saving and coast
guards stations show that no additional
news has been received in regard to the
loss of the North German Lloyd steam
ship Elbe and no trace has been found
of the missing lifeboat supposed to con
tain people from that steamer. However,
the sea is so rough that many of the fish
ing smacks are unable to make port and
are beating up and down the coast, wait
ing for a chance to run into some har
bor. In reply to a message of sympathy
from ()ueen Victoria, the agent here of
the North German Lloyd Steamship
Company telegraphed to her Majesty
saying that no hopes whatever are enter
tained of any more of the passengers or
crew of the steamship Elbe having been
saved. Captain Gordon, of the British
steamship Crathie, which is generally
admitted to have been the vessel which
ran into and sank the Elbe, has made a
statement to Lloyd's agent in which he
says that he was knocked down by the
force of the collision, and that when he
regained his feet the two ships were some
distance apart, and the Crathie was so
damaged that he expected her to sink at
any moment. In spite of this, Captain
Gordon added, he followed the other
steamer, but found that she went faster
than the Crathie, and so he thought the
vessel she had collided with was safe.

ICx plosion Shakes the Tonn.
About 4 .',, ek ?.Io:id:;y morning a
terrilie epitsii;i awakened the people vi
Mih:n. Ohio. A hurried examination
showed that the I..Uv.-i ,l Lank build
ing had been broken into, the safe blown
and its contents, about S.'lo.i'iio, taken by
live masked men, who. in blowing opi-si
the sale, had demolished the building and
started an alarm all over the village.
Among the many who started to investi
gate tho explosion was L. L. Stoddard,
cashier of the bank, ami he w:is jut in
time- to se tLo live men leave the hunk
building, jump into a carriage and drive
away, lie tired several shots at them,
but without effect, and the men soon di-
PI ten red in the direction of Sandusky. A
losseof men was hurriedly organized and
soon followed in pursuit. At the :ai:io
time notices were sent by wire in al! di
reetions and the news spread mound
them so securely that escape w:is well
night impessihle. At Sandusky two men
were caught. The exact amount of money
secured eannot yet be ascertained, but it
is believed, to be about SO.'H!. The bank
is a wealthy comrni, which fact was
doubtless known by the men. The only
er:.;r in their well-laid plans was the
heavy explosion which starte! the alarm.
It is quite probable that they had not

that error their plan:; v. ere upset and

Drowned In a Street Car.

carelessness with his life. The car strack
