MOINES: W3MI!9DAY frotti Honolulu, *e* tfeived -oy the steamer A^stralia^on th e 33th/ say all is quiet on the islands. President Dole had just asked Willis tot H'plain statement of his intentions as to the-future. The queen Had given up all hope of regaining her throne, and •will bring a claim against the United States for damages in assisting .in w/'esting her kiugdom from her, using the argument of President Cleveland to establish the justness ot her claim. 4 The Colorado legislature met in •special session on the 10th. By a vote of 40 to 25 the lower house refused to adjourn sine die. Secretary Oresham has announced that tbe Hawaiian matter is now wholly in the hands ot congress and that all correspondence will be turned over to it as soon as received. Five masked robbers held up the "Eli" train on the Burlington near St. Joseph. They secured all in the safe in the express car, but the amount it is claimed, is not large. The trial of August Vaillant} th* .anarchist who threw the bomb'.in the French chamber of deputies, was held on the 10th. The court house was surrounded by guards and nobody allowed to pass unidentified. The court was thronged. The opening proceedings were purely formal. A report was circulated that a bomb with a biu-ned fuse was found outside the sourt. Tile court made short work of the trial, •which resulted in condemning the prisoner to death. Vaillant refused to sign an appeal to the court of cessation against his sentence.

According to advices brought by the steamer Warrimoo from Honolulu, on the evening of December 10 Attorney Oeneral Smith visited Minister Willis. During the interview Willis said: " What! Arc you to resist the wishes of the, United States? Either of these Japanese or British ships could crush you. If they assume a hostile attitude you would be compelled to apply for ourprotectipn." Smith intimated that his government could wait for a republican administration to grant annexation. Willis declared the democratic party was assured of twenty years of. power, and that the will ol President Cleveland would3prevail. Ivee has tied Schafer's average of 100, but not his 550 run. In the second game of the triangular billiard tournament between Ives, Schafer and Slos- Eon, at Chicago, Ives made 030 in six innings, closing with a run of 487. Nearly all were made with the anchor nurse. Ives got this position on the thirty-first shot, lost it at 131, regained it at 142. lost it again at 428, and then finished with 'very fine general billiards, in vrhich he was materially helped by an egregious scratch.

In reply President Dole addressed a lengthy letter to Cleveland presenting the government's position and declaring it impossible to comply with the demand. Two tramps were kicked out of the music hall at the World's Fair grounds on the evening of the 6th. A short time thereafter a blaze was seen to spring from the casino, at the opposite end ot the peristyle, in which direction the tramps had disappeared. The fire spread rapidly, consuming the casino, tbe peristyle and music hall aud soon reaching the manufactures and liberal arts building.

He was a humorous old gentlem&ftv and said many good things. But the , reason why-he lived So long wa's not. generally known. He imparted the secret to me himself when he \vas 95. It was a winter's day; many young 'follows of that age would have been sitting by the fireside; not so this .brisk and hearty young follow, writes Walter Besanb in tho London Queen. Ho was walking m tho January sun; he had on an old brown greatcoat, with a woolen muffler round his neck and Canadian mittens, which arei quite ,tho best things for winter wear, cm his hands. Seeing 1 him afar off I know him by tho old brown coat» which, by dint of long wear* had assumed something of it's owner's shape. A shabby old coat, stained with age, discolored in patches and ragged at the cuffs. J told him this. 1 said that he had worn that coat as long as J'Terncmbered him at all. It was a coat, I said, that would lievon wear out. He-laughed. "It will last me out," he said, pleasantly. Then; he laughed again and turned so as to 1 face the sunshine. "I will toll you. about this coat," ho said. "It hag. kept me alive. Either I or the coat, must prove the survivor. I am pretty old, as you know—one of the old-' •st irien in the world—not so old its Sir Moses Montefioro when ho died— which is encouraging—but old as men go.

'Quite,' said tho other. •In the nature of things,'said one.' •Quite so,' said the other.'- -'It vould be a needless expense.', said one. 'Quite needless,' said the other. That was sixteen years ago, and the coat and I have, come to au mderstanding-—we are trying 1 to otit- ive each other:. At present I'll back myself. 'A needless expense.* lo! Ho! 'Quito in the nature of things.' Ha! Ha!" So he walked away chuckling. All that winter and ;he next he wore the old brown coat.' n the following summer I heard that the coat had contracted moth—sen- lo moth—they called it. It was not •oplaced. When autumn came the old man sat beside the fire. He had. no great coat, and he did not ask for one. The last time I saw him he chuckled again. "I've outlasted •ven that old coat," he said, "and now it would be a needless expense —rquite needless. -Because in thena- ;ure of things " He turned his 'ace to the fire and lapsed into si- ence.
