Sax Fr.vkcisco, Feb. "2i Now ar
rangements for overland tniv.-I n the
Ceutral Pacific r.mte will -j into ef
fect on Mnrc'j 2nd. The fast p.iK:ie
time from Chic iro to .Svi Fmm'i-co
will not be changed, but ilie fast pns
euger time from San Francisco to
Chicago -will be lengthened by six
and one half hours. The fast mail
time both ways will remain the same.
Tne change is consequent on the gov
ernment's demand for mail cars on
the fast eastern part of the line, and
the necessity of relieving the mail
train of its paengor load over a por
tion or the route.
The fast mail will leave San Fran
cisco with the p;issengers as at pres
ent, but at Green Kiver, Wyoming
territory, the cast-bound mails and
passengers over the Oregon Short
line are received. nc man ana pas
senger cars will be separated and the
mail train will run to Chicago on the
present schedule. The passenger
traiu from there eastward will ar
rive at Council Bluffs five hours later
than st does now and in Chicago, six
and one-half hours later.

less than the actual consumption.

Sax Francisco, Feb. 22. The steamer
Australia brings almost complete re
turns or the election for nobles and
representative's held in the Hawaiian
kingdom, February oth. Returns
received here by steamer a week ago,
led to a belief that the opposition or
national reform party had gained a
sweeping victory, but present advices,
which iuclude returns from all but
two districts, show that the success of
the national reform party was confined
principally to tho island of Oahu, on
which Honolulu is situated, and later
returns indicate that the reform party
will have a small majority in the next
Returns so far received give the re
form party thirteen members in the
liouse of nobles, the national reform
or opposition ten members and inde
pendent one. Iu the house of repre
sentatives the reform party elected
twelve members and the national re
form ten members.
The Honolulu Adcerther concedes
that the remaining seats in the house
or representatives will be held by the
national reformers thus making the
parties a tie in that house and giving
the reform party a slight majority in
the honse of nobles.

A Cijihir Pirture rKniiHw Hum sil

United States consul Yirquair, sta
tioned at Aspinwall, in his last official
report to the state department, gives
a striking picture of the present con
dition of affairs along the line of the
Panama canal. The decadence of
Colon (Aspinwall) and the almost en
lire prostration of all business at that
place since the collapse of the canal
becomes more and more apparent. It
very often happens that not a solitary
vessel is to be found in the harbor, a
thing that was never known there,
even previous to 1SS0 and after 1SG0:
and yet it is but a short while ago
since vessels were obliged to be
anchored out for days in wailing for
dock room at which to unload tlscir
The local traffic of the isthmus dur
ing the time that work was being
pushed on the canal had reached vast
proportions. The line of the canal,
between Colon and Panama, about
fifty miles, was a vast bivouac, where
the most energetic of all nationalities
and races had congregated to amass
wealth, and many have done so, es
pecially among the Chinese portion
of it. Wages were high, princely sal
aries were paid, money was made
easy and expended most freely. Day
time was not eneugh: the nights them
selves were turned iuto day, and lit-
erallv speaking, the twenty-four hours
of the dav were a constant draft on
various industries. The expression
tho most fiting is, "it w;is Bedlam let
loose," and people can not have any
idea of what the isthmus was in lST),
18SG, 1SS7 and part of 18SS, unless
they have seen it.
Forty towns have sprung up on the
line in almost as many miles, every
one of them thriving, a real beehive
of people; in fact, all or them bent,
not only at changing the physical
aspect of the land, but in turning a
tropical jungle oi heretofore a death
dealing clime into a new Babylon, for
never was there such a confusion or
tongues and a conglomeration of races
from all over the world. These peo
ple were fighting back the diseases
manfully, dying at once without a
murmur, or living in spite of clime,
lives of the most reckless dissipation
when at leisure. It is not a wonder
that so many died; it is a won
der that so many have lived.
Indeed, it can be very truth
fully said, that "grim death got ex
hausted at the task' and retreated to
his lair. The isthmus had become
habitable; before the advent of this
reckless throng it was not. And what
has become of it all? Vanished. The
people have all gone, business is dead
on the line, the local traffic is dead,
the line of the canal, once only a
short while ago the liveliest place on
the globe, Ls dead; the rank vegetation
of the tropics is growing denser, it
seems, for the rest it has had, hiding
from view railroad trains, dredges.
and all paraphernalia of the canal
contractors, who left their implements
of all sorts as if work were to have
been resumed in the morning.
Colon and Panama still live, but
that is all, merely by-way stations for
the traffic across the isthmus eastward
and westward between two hemis
pheres. In Colon rents have fallen off
50 per cent in three months, and are
still on the decline. Tho Panama
railroad, which in 1S88 paid 23.50 per
cent of dividends, will in 1880 pay only
0 per cent This line in 1888 carried
1,300,000 passengers (4,000 per day);
this year it may carry probably 500.000,
it so many.
But the transit traffic has not suf
fered; on the contrary, it is only the
local traffic, which in a short six
months has suffered a loss of nearly
110,000 tons of imports that is to say,
this much has been lost to the local
trade. As a result nearly two-thirds
of the business houses iu Colon are
closed up and bankrupt sales are a
