[ Special Telegram to the BKK. I President Cleveland as a letter writer Is becoming moro and more a failure. A short time auo there arrived In Washing ton by way of the Pacltic coast from New South Wales an artist named A. Hoberto Pttllln. Ho had been commissioned by an artists' club of Sidney , composed of some six hundred members , to present to Mrs. Cleve land on their behalf a painting Illustrative of Australian scenery. On coming to Wash ington Mr. Pullln wrote to President Cleve land stating the facts and asking that ho ac cept the painting for Mrs. Cleveland. In the letter Mr. Pullln took occasion to speak ot the respect which the people of Australia en tertained for the people of the United States and expressing the hope that thu two coun tries might become moro closely united In their friendship and become more and moro a blessing to the world. Imagine the feelings ot Pullln when , after waiting a week , ho received a cold , formal reply trom the president declining the pies- ent , the tone of his letter being about the same that Cleveland would use toward an otlico seeker that was trying to bribe him with a present. The artist could not do oth erwise than sit down and write bacn how greatly mortified lie telt that an act Intended to draw the respect which a toreian associa tion entertained for the people of the great American republic should bo so coldly treated , lie felt sure that his fellow Austra lians could not do otherwise than leel put out by the snub administered to them. Don't Want Hawaii. WASHINGTON , July 18. [ Special Telegram to the BEK. | Officials of the department of state say that there Is not a remote prospect of the establishment of a protectorate over the Hawaii Islands by any European power. They base this belief upon the knowledge that not one of the powers would submit to the acquisition of the Islanders by any of the others. These gentlemen say that the inten tion of the revolutionists Is not to depose Kalakaua entirely and therein they are thought to be wise , under the existing state of allalrs In the Islands it would bo impossi ble that they could be admitted Into the United States. The state department people think that there would be no objection raised to this on the part ot any of the Euro pean governments , but the only manner In which the Islands could bo taken Into the union would be either as a lull Hedged state or a territory with a representative govern ment , as the population is composed to a laivu extent ot ignorant natives , Chinese and Poituguese , with only about . ' .00 whites. It would bo against the policy of this country to admit such a population into lull citizen ship. ship.WA WA SIIINOTON , July 13. [ Special Telegraph to the Uii : : .

The commissioner of patents has rendered an Important deci sion In the case of the application to register a trade mark for distilled spirits In which the words "Knights of Lahoi" and "K. of L. " distillery appear. The commissioner states that the re is no pretense that the manufac turers of this particular brand ot whisky who beek to register the trade mark are Knights of Labor or are engaged in business with them or under their auspices , yet the distinc tion uoints to this labor organization or to members as a class | as the origin of the own ership of the article to which It is applied. In other words thu proposed trade mark is In the nature of false representation and de- coptlou as to the general public , possibly In ducing them to purchase an article under the belief that It Is manufactured by a society In which they have a friendly interest. The commissioner , therefore , on the ground of the false pretenses ot such trade mark , ie- tubes Its registration. Aooount * Foaud Satisfactory. WASHINGTON. July 19.

Special Tele gram to the UKU I The corcmor's ' Jury re sumed work to-day In the examination of witnesses concerning the recent It. & M. wreck near Havrclock cast of Lincoln. A large number of people were ntesent as In- tcicsted spectators and the Inquiries were closely made by Jttdce Mason. F. M. Hall , one of the li. & M. attorneys , and Superin tendent D. E , Thompson , were prevent dur ing the mornlim hours of tlm session. The fneman of Engineer Howset's onclno was on the stand for some time and his testimony corroborated En gineer Bowser in every particular. Hu testified positively that there was no signal light to stop out at Havrelock when the en gine passed the station and that after noting no signal he put more fuel in the furnace. Ho thought that as soon as Engineer Dowser located the headlight In front as an approaching train , that lie used every elTort to stop. He also agreed with the others In testifying that the car that caught 'ire was the ono occupied by Dr. Kan- ( all and son , and it burned , so rapidly that t was Impossible to assist the man on ac count of tlio heat. The tireman test I lied that he air brake on the engine was not In good ivorklng order , nnd that Howscr had called ittentlon of Salisbury , who has charge of tlio jlncoln round house , that the brake would ot work well. The torward brakeman on tills train was njured In the wreck , but lie was bromrht to he room and gave his testimony , which con- .radlcted a good deal ot the rest. Hu agteud vith the engineer and fireman in testitving hat there was no red light displaseil nt Invelock. Ho was positive ol that. He had ictoro reaching liavelock , noted tlio head- Ightdown the track , but supposed It was a rain on the sldlne. After passing Havelock uid seeing no dancer signal ho went from he toil of thn train into the engine and was here when the train struck. He did not hink the engineer shut oil steam or whistled or brakes. This testimony agreed with the inglneer and lireman's , that thute were no Ignals out , while the opeiator and boy in he oltlce testified that the signal was oiitand he conductor and rear brakeman testified hat when the way car pissed the station the ed signal was out. It seemed to bit a quite enerat opinion tli.it the .signal was turned ftiir the engine had passed nnd before the ivay car reached the depot , or to those who ave not formed conclusions the testimony f the operator on duty for the hist time on lie road and the young man in the olllce , vith him is to bo weighed against the engi neer's testimony , a man ot seven years' ox- lerlence as an engineer on the Chicago , liur- Ington & Quincy line , supported bv the urther testimony of his fireman and head irakeman. During the forenoon the jurv 'allcd ' back a number of the wit nesses and questioned them ro- ardlnrSJ the hours work thev had to o and how hard they were worked by the : ompany. The evldonco was mengic In that uspect and Trainmaster Uignell was placed in the stand tor the same purpose. Mr. : Mfnell's testimony was that trainmen were never overworked , that some of tlio way > elght runs kept crews on duty twelve or hirteen hours , while other runs were much ihorter. Mr. lili-nell could not remember of any train crows that were worked longer Mian this time. In fact Engineer Bowser's testimony of the day before was that he went on duty at ) maha at 0 o'clock at nitrht , ran to Lincoln and had lifty iiiinutcs of ; then returned to Omaha reach- nf there at 10 a. m. , alter sixteen hours out he trip butoro the one ho was running when ho wicck occurred , having been oil' duty hat day trom the time of reaching Omaha at 10 a. m. until 5 D. m. when 1m got ready tor .lie night run when the accident happened An engineer In commenting on the tact , said that the pay roll of engineers and lite- uen in busy times would show that they .uade some runs of a great many moro hour. " duration than stated. The testimony of tin trainmen on the regular train that Dr. Kan dall and his car weie on , stated that ho wltl his car was taken on at Chieo , Sarpy county , and that he had a common coal oil lamp in the ear. The conductor am forward brakeman both testified that they had tried to get Kandall to ride in the way car. but lie prufened staying with his horses that were frightened. The forward brakeman - man stated that ho called Randall's attentloi to the tact of the danger of Tire from the Ian tern lu case of accident. None of the train men appear to have seen the boy who was in the car with his father. JiuUe Mason told the jury that it would devolve upon them to determine whether Randall's death wits from neeliuencft on ills part , for if it was the com pany would only be liable for civil damages At noon tbo jury adjourned to take furthe evidence at : 'M p. m.
