We believe, if correctly reported, the SALTATION ARMY will pray before the open doors of the following Clothing Shops, which, in defiance of decency and public feeling,
persist in continuing their business during the Sabbath day,
Tlfm At the clothing shop known as the Hub, which remains open on Sundays,
ii \\mM I I ■§ At the shop known as the Chicago Clothing Co., which remains open on Sundays.
%3 ■■-1 £ I At Raphael's clothing shop, which remains open on Sundays.
We hope when this unbusinesslike custom is thus publicly reprimanded the perpetrators of the vile outrage on business morals will be compelled to follow the custom of
all respectable merchants and close their doors on the Sabbath. •* y i?

tice the open place at the sheave, stepped
in. The arms of the wheel caught his legs,
and in an Instant he was drawn between

The machinery was stopped Immediately,
and Branan's body was found rolled np
like a ball and crushed into a pulp. Be
was married and 33 years old.

Committing Snicid'.
Portland, July 5.— A special from Ta
coma says: The mystery surrounding the
motive for the suicide of 11. 11. Passmore,
cashier of the Security Bank, has been
cleared tip. To gentlemen with whom lie
passed a portion of the evening previous to
hie death he spoke of being in straitened
circumstances. His property was not

ing made, anil the property not advancing
as rapidly as be exacted the second pay
ments were due, am! being unable to meet
them he realized the fact that his entire for
tune would be swept away unless his friends
would come to his rescue. His friends claim
to have offered the desired assistance, but,
it is said, he did not have confidence in their
promises, and the thoughts of losing his
entire possessions so preyed upon his mind
that lie became partially insane, and while
in that condition took his life.

effective. At the same time let it be under

union to win the fight if it lasts five years."

their Philadelphia strike, which lias been
on since February 1-ltli, and the 75 men

Kalakaua's Ministry Driven to the
New Political Advisers Chosen — Charges
Against Ex-Foreign Minister Austin.
All Quiet at the Capital.
Hon. Jonathan Austin, late Foreign
Minister to his Majesty Kalakaua I. ar
rived in the city yesterday from Hono
lulu on the Oceanic Steamship Company's
steamer Mariposa. He brought the first
news that has re ached the outer world of
the dissolution of the Hawaiian Cabinet,
and of the election of a new Ministry.
It will be remembered that the last
steamer from the islands brought the first
tidings of the impending crisis. At that
time the crash had not yet come, but events
had already occurred of such a nature as
to foreshadow the downfall of the Ministry,
When the Mari posa left the island capital,
the big row had occurred, but ended with
out violence, and affai rs in the kingdom
were exceedingly quiet
A ministry had gone the way of all Cab
inet Ministers, and tlie Government felt
secure. Nothing of an alarming nature
happened to arouse the apprehensions of
the good kind Kalakaua, and he still reposed
In his palace in the confidence of peace
Mr. Austin was seen last night, and was
found to be, in person and manners, the
ideal diploniate. Well advanced in years,
but with the bearing of a man of affairs, he
talked freely and with charming frank
ness. Beseemed to regard his downfall
philosophically and had nc hesitancy In re
ferring to it.
It may be well, however, to recall the
fact that at the time the latest advices were
sent out from Honolulu it was stated that
the opposition had made a number of
serious charges against Mr. Austin, among
which was one that he had conspired wltn
his fellow-Ministers to selljthe independ
ence of the islands. Another was that he
had withheld important diplomatic corre
spondence, which he claimed to be of a
private nature.
Speaking of the matter last night to a
representative of The Lai.'., he said:
"Yes, it is true that the old Cabinet has
been compelled to give way to a uew one.
It was a bard struggle and we made a good
light, but they finally tired us out. A new
Cabinet was then formed, composed as fol
lows: Minister of Foreign Affairs, John
A. Cunimings: Minister of Interior, C.N.
Spencer; Minister of Finance, Godfrey
Brown, and Attorney-General, Arthur Pe
" The charges against me were that I had
not been true to the interests of Hawaii,
and that I had been in correspondence with
the Stale Department at Washington with
a view to sacrificing the independence of the
Government It was also charged against
me that I had refused to surrender certain
letters bearing upon tlie subject I simply
denied the charges as untrue and assured
the Government that I had at no time
lavored a treaty inimical to the interests of
the islands. As for the correspondence, it
was of a private nature and 1 so stated. I.
held that 1 had a right to refuse to surrender
it ou that account.
"An effort was made by the opposition to
impeach Attorney-General Ashfurd and
they endeavored to secure a vute of want of
confidence against hint, but the Legislature
voted it down by the very narrow majority
of one. We were apprehensive of a similar
motion and although we were unfriendly to
Ashford, the entire Miuistrjlresigued, the
Attorney-General going out with us
things looked exceedingly squally for a
time and we feared serious trouble, but for
tunately it was averted and quiet main- ,
too many would-be leaders.
"The opposition was not firmly united.
There were too many leaders or would-be
leaders, and each one regarded himself as
the ail-important man. Wilcox and Mar
ques both regarded themselves as tbe
leaders, but the latter was the most violent
aud the most radical. Neither of them is
in the new Cabinet, which, no doubt is for
the best.
"As it now stands there is not a repre
sentative of either fin* ion in it, and it is
neither an opposition Cabinet nor yet a
Government Cabinet It Is a compromise
cabinet therefore, and 1 should s.ty repre
sents the best interests of the islands, al
though it is not to the liking of either party
so far as politics are concerned. 1 am in
clined to think, however, that it will please
the people, who, after all, have the most at
Mr. Austin predicted an era of increased
prosperity for the little kingdom, aud stated
thai he had not yet made any definite
plans for the future. It is his intention to
remain, lor a time at least, in this city.
An Assault .M ..It. on Kearny Street on
Non-Union Mulders.
There was considerable excitement on
Kearny and Sutter streets about midnight,
caused by a row between four non-union
iron-molders and a party of men who
have some connection with tho striking
Henry Naliorn, who . came from Detroit
about three months ago and who was as
signed to work at the Pacific Foundry, left
bis hotel with three other non-union mold
ers about 11:30 o'clock. They Jumped off
the Fourth-street car at Kearny and Post
streets and walked down the first named
street, their object being to have a sight of
the city and take a little fresh air.
,i Horn states that they had been but a
few minutes on the sidewalk when they
were surrounded by a crowd, some of
whom began to call "scab." He drew a
pistol and flourished it. The crowd
scattered . and -Nahorn- started to
run, but - was arrested - by Officers
Burnett and Charles U. J. McDonald, who
charged him with exhibiting a deadly
weapon In a rude and threatening manner.
At the Central Station the prisoner said:
"I was walking along with my three com
panions, when ■we were approached by a
crowd. At first I was called a 'scab.' Then
some one said, 'Take that, you dirty scabl'
and 1 was hit from the rear in the side of

' George F. lilsjelow.
; The newt : of the suicide of George F.
. Bigelow in a hotel at Tacoma on Sunday
night was received with great regret and
surprise 7 by his • many friends in this city,
and with the keenest sorrow by ! his aged
parents, who live at 1825 Green street.
A * visit was paid yesterday to the resi
dence of tbe father of the deceased, H. 11.
Bigelow. si Both parents were seen,' and
each, stated that they had not the faintest
idea as to what induced their, son to make
away with himself. They had no clew to
the mystery, and did not think it was
caused by love, as stated in tbe dispatches.
The deceased was a native of California
and 25 years of age. He was a graduate of
the Boys' High School, and passed one year
at the University of California. He se
lected the insurance business as a career,
and was first employed in the California

Intended to stop gome time in Tacoma. i
'1 lie lather of the young man stated that
he received a letter from bis son dated June

despondent mood. He did not know that
bis son was in any financial difficulties, hav
ing a good position. The body will be
brought to this city for interment.
Music Question Settled— Parade
of the Third.
Preparations for tbe celebration of the
one hundred and first anniversary of the
birth of liberty among the French by the
fall of the Bastile prison are nearing com
pletion. For several weeks these arrange
ments have been progressing and there now
remains only the details to lay out
The route of procession and those who
will participate in it are decided, and though
other representative bodies may appear in
line the programme, as laid out will not be
materially departed from. The only feature
not wholly decided upon was regarding the
music, and it was that subject which en
grossed about two hours of the committee's
time last night An understanding was ar
rived at on the point most disputed and
other points of difference will be settled
with ease.
The Fourteenth of July Committee held a
special meeting last night to dispose of this
music question. Emanuel Meyer, Presi
dent, was in the chair. The first thing
touched upon was the leadership of the
bands and a heated dispute ensued between
the two aspirants, Victor Hue Paris and M.
Mathieu, and their friends.
For years M. Mathieu has furnished the
music for the French colony, and in return
he has often serenaded its citizens and done
other little favors. He is a Frenchman of
ultra-French blood, a good fellow, loyal to
the memory of bis native land. But every
quality he boasts has Victor Hue Paris,
and a bitter fight was indulged in for the
Both are members of the Musicians'
Union and leaders of first-clats bands, aud
that only added to the difficulty. Was
Mathieu loyal, so was Paris. Was
Mathieu well liked by bis friends, so was
Paris by his. For over one hour the com
mittee had one voice, and that voice an up-
Words were not bandied at sword's point,
but belched forth as from a cannon. When
thoroughly tired, when each side sat and
glared at the other, neither willing to ac
cede a point or grant a word, then, and not
until then, was the question near its solu
tion. At that moment tiie Mathieu faction
gave In, and M. Mathieu led the surrender.
He consented to Victor Hue Paris having
charge of the music, with the understand
ing that he should employ him as leader of
one of the bands. The opposition grasped
the proposition with alacrity, since it was
all that could have been acceded| it by a
majority vote, and the question was set
A letter was read from Colonel T. F. Barry
stating that a battalion of the Third In
fantry Regiment, N. Q. CL, would participate
in the paiade and would be commanded by
Lieutenant-Colonel O'Connor.
A communication was also received from
a firm on Market street offering $1100 for
all the privileges of the gardens on the day
of celebration. The matter was referred to
the Committee on Finance.

Waldo and placed him In the town lock-up,
