TP". THE HAWAIIAN SI1 Aft : FJKIDAY, MAY 1808. SIX PAGES. THE PROPOSED TREATY. THE LABOR AND CURRENCY QUESTIONS. What Government Officials Say About Them Vice-President Damon Talks. President Dole was asked about the labor proposals in the new treaty this morning, but declined to talk. Another official, however, was more communica tive, and said it was the desire of the Government to obtain some special ex emptions from the operation ol the American contract labor laws. Vice-President Oatnon was asked to throw some new light on the silver pro pos ils. He talked as follows: " I said yesterday that we have $joo, ooo in silver currency in this country and, if the old treaty that the com missioners took over had gone through, this silver would have been worth just its intrinsic value and nothing else, which is from 62 to 64 cents according to the market price of silver in the United States. "This would have occasioned a great loss in this country, for within a single day after the treat...

The British Museum has been en riched by a remarkable gray granite shrine from the iu.and ul Pinko, s juth of the first cataract in Upper Egypt, presented by the Egyptian Govern ment. This relic was originally in the Great Temple there, visited by Strabo, who says that he saw on a shrine a bird which the priest called a hawk, but, he adds, it was larger than and diff rent from the native hawks, and had a dis tinguishing plumage. The bird, too, was sick and nearly dead, There is no absolute proof as yet that this was the very shrine, but it is highly probable, and the holes sunk in the sides of the open part .would have served for an iron or bronze bar grating such as would have been used for the cage of a large hawk or eagle. The worship rf Egyptian gds continued at I'hilaj until 450 A.O, or about 70 years after the edict of Theodosius, when he attempted to abolish the old gods of the...

The Presi dent has appointed James H. Blount of Georgia Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to the Ha waiian Islands to succeed John L. Stevens. Blount's commission bears the date of yesterday and it will be sent to him by the next mail for Hon olulu. It is understood that the change was decided on at the Cabinet meeting yesterday. The report from Blount, mailed in Honolulu during the last week in April, came to Secretary Gresham yesterday morning and was taken by him to the cabinet meeting. Owing to its confidential character the con tents were kept secret, but it is pre sumed that it contains such information that the President is determined to loose no time in commissioning the new Minister to succeed Mr. Stevens. Now that Mr. Blount's official status has been changed from Com inissioner to Minister, t...

Mr. Spreckels early ap preciated the talents of Mr. Shortridge, and this appreciation ripened into close personal friendship. It is not surpris ing, therefore, that the friendship be tween Mr. Spreckels and the elo quent young lrwyer should have re sulted in a corresponding family inti macy. In time, this brought about an engagement of marrijge between Mr. Shortridge and Miss Spreckels. Owing to the wealth and powerful political connections of the contrartinc parties, the contemplated weddinc will, in all likelihood, exert considerable influence on the trend of political events. Mr. Shortridge was already on the high road to political preferment, and this alliance will bring to him aid of a most potent character. 6. . Chronicl...

King Oscar of Sweden has not much of a reputation as a gambler, but a little experience of his at Ai. l.i Chapelle not such a great many years ago showed that he would make a pretty nervy gambler. One night he entered the big gambling house of the city incog, and after watching the play tit roulette a moment carelessly threw a silver cuin on the table. Scarcely looking up, the croupier scornfully pushed the coin away, saying: " This cannot be for the bank; it must be in tended for the servants." White with rage, King Oscar critd out: "En banc!" signifying that he wished to venture an amount of money, equal to the total assets of the bank at a single stroke. Astounded, the banker tremblingly asked the name of the man who proposed to risk a fortune on the roll of a marble.

RT THE THREE JAPANS. There are three Japans. There is the idyllic Japan which Sir Edwin Arnold saw through poetical spectacles, there is the darkest Japan depicted in most sombre tonus by Clement Scott, and there is the real Japan. Sir Edwin Arnold's views were expressed through the medium of the London Daily Telegraph, and Mr, Clement Scott's have also appeared in the same journal, but they are diametrically oposed to each other. Sir Edwin was infatuated, his colleague was disillusioned. Rring ing to his aid the imagery of the poet, and availing himself of all, and more than all, the poet's license, Sir Edwin Arnold painted a glowing picture, as fanciful as it was highly colored. Willi the little almond-eyed musumc for a subject he sketched an idyll, and the idyll was to reality what the bubble is to soap and water, vanishing at the first touch of the realistic. It may be that Sir Edwin Arnold wrote as he felt, without secret longings for the decora lion of the Rising Sun. It may b...
