Hint thu Hawaiian Inoldent has started

Tho nrtlolo says that the stories of

department could bo successfully con

to retlro voluntarily at an early day,
owing to his growing Infirmities, and
by that tlmo tho President's personal
friend, Mr. Day, would bo competent
to conduct tho Secretary's work.
The Evening Post, In on artlclo on
the same question, said that a person
called upon Secretary Sherman to ask
him about tho Hawaiian trentv. "Vm
must rend my report upon It In order
va re wuoro i stand, it is a great

Within twenty-four hours after
making this statement Mr. Sherman is

at points whero avallublc men for sea

at 10:0.1 o'eloek Tuesday morning, after

The jury found tho defendant guilty

Information, of converting tho monoy
of tho state to hrs own use ns an in
dividual while holding tho office of
stato treasurer, tho amount of tho em
bezzlement being fixed at 8151,884.75.
Tho verdict convicts Hartley of tho
embezzlement of 3151,884.75, Instead of
tho amount of 8201,884.75 with which
ho was charged, tho jury allowing
Hnrtloy credit for tho check for 350,

tho Omaha National bank Juno 4, 1805,
and payablo to his account ns stato
trcasuror in the samo bonk, and which
tho defense traced through that bank
to tho First National bank of Lincoln,
and thence to six state depositories.
Tho jury was out seventeen hours
and took so many ballots that no count
was taken of tho total number.
After tho jury had beon discharged
Judgo Raker remanded Hartley to tho
county jail for sentence. Attorney
Mahoney objected to this proccduro
and offered bail for Hartley's appear

in Bavaria, a curious nocturnal exhi
bition has lately taken"place. A fow
minutes after midnight thero sud
denly appeared In the village a party
of 150 armed mon, mostly peasant pro
prlotors, driving apparently somo im
aginary spoctors beforo them. Pros
cntly every man discharged his fire
arm. Muny of the Inhabitants who
wero indoors, behind strong barriers,
trembled at tho thought of tho car
nage that must have ensued.

evil supposed to be hoverlnp about
As a rulo, nobody dared venture out;
but ono more bold than his fellows
did open his door and expostulate
against such unwarrantable disturb
ance of the night But tho firing
party heeded him not Thlsceiemony
of exorcising tho ovll spirits from tho
village continued for an hour. And
ns suddenly as the party had arrived
so suddenly did thoy disappear. There
was a strong smell f powder In tho
air, but not a trace of brimstone.
