many people on Maui use bicyles, and yet find it too expensive to
send their wheels to Honolulu for repairs. Now, to supply the
demand for such work, nn enterprising: mechanic has established
a cyclery in Lahaina,, m connection with a carriage and blacksmith
shop. Ho does pood work, sells springs as cheap as they can be
bought in Honolulu, if not cheaper, and handles a first class
grade of wheels, Yet as a matter of fact, the people of Maui
generally hare no idea thwt there is such an establishment, and
ara sending their broken bicycles
from Honolulu with freight added.

55 The Island of Maul now has a chance to get in on the ground
floor in the matter of establishing a bank on the Island, and there
is no better or safr investment than a few shares of bank stock.
There is no doubt but that a bank is a needed institution here, and
it is believed that the time has arrived wh,en it would prove a safe
and profitable as well as a needed institution. It largely depends
on the people of Maui to establish a bank, for, while there is plenty
of outside capital waiting for such an investment, still if the peo
ple of Maui do not subscribe liberally, it will naturally discourage
the movement. Large subscriptions are not particularly desired,
but rather small subscriptions from many sources.
JB The recent fire in Lahaina is a warning to Wailuku, and what
happened there may happen here. We have an abundant water
supply flowing by oar doors, but suppose a fire should baeak out
in Wailuku, what could we do? Even if the citizens should club
together and buy a hose cart and hose, they would still be no
better off, for the reason that the Board of Public Works neglected
to put fire hydrants hi the Wailuku water pipes, notwithstanding
the protests of the people of Wailuku. Out of the very first funds
available for that purpose, hydrants should at once be put in, and
at least one hose cart and 1,000 feet of hose should be provided.
5$ The home rule party, as an entity, cannot survive long . and
no wiser course suggest itself for them than to amalgamate with
the republican party. This would produce a degree of, harmony
which would be of unmeasured benefit to all concerned, and the
present home rulers would have votes enough at each election to
fully protect their interests. Appearances now indicate that that
there will be an amalgamation of the better element of the
Home rule party with the conservative elemont of the republican
party, and when that comes to pass, we will hang up our hat and
get ready to stay a loug time with the Islands.
5t In the long list of appropriations for Maui, it is rather singular
that no provisions have been made for extending the wharf at
Lahaina at least far enough out to enabk an ordinary row boat to
reach the end of the wharf at all times. The Lahaina people have
been long suffering in this matter, but do not seem to grieve much
at having a wharf appropriation left out, because, as they express
it, "money enough has heretofore been appropriated for the
Lahaina wharf to extend it to Lanai, but we never see any of the
money." Senator White should have looked after this matter.
The first legislature of tho terri
tory of Hawaii may die with the
week. Again, there may be a pro
longation of the session Into next
week, but with the rapid progress
upon the Appropriation Jbill there
seems no reason to believe there will
bo any longer time to spent upon the
consideration of the bnclget. Both
Houses will come together next Fri
day afternoon, at 2 o clock. By that
time the salaries measure will be
ready for submission. It has been
enrolled and is in shape for the last
stages of consideration.
Another day of rapid progress
was nut in by the conference
committee of the legislature yes
terdav. and as a result one-half of
the current expense bill was agreed
to and prepared for presentation to
the respective house. Thero was
onlv one hour of the morning session
and two o the afternoon spent in
work and as a result Hie progress
made indicates that the entire bill
will be put through today. There
were few changes made in the House
bill, the amendments of the Senate

Senator White was on the rack at
the end, The Maui man secured a
partial victory after many attempts
had been made. There were several
consocutive laughs bound up in the
struggle to get a bundle of cash for
a road "Papalaua, to extend to
meet Hala'niani road at Kapaulu."
The House had inserted the item at
110,000, and the Senate had cut that
amount to $2,000. There was a
motion to agree to the House figures
and it was in a fair way to carry
when some one asked what was the
length of the road. Senator White
answered that it was some three
quarters of a mile, which caused a
roar, followed by a motion to agree
to the Senate figure. Makekauhow
ever wanted to compromise on $6,000
and when that did not receive enough
votes to carry, though there were
more than enough to show that the
members wanted to deal fairly with
Maui, the laughs which marked
White's repeated attempts to raise
The absolute necessity for funds to meet the ordinary ex
penses of the government and to make some needed repairs and
improvements is now beginning to orce itself upon the minds of
the people, and no other practicable, method suggests itself save
to call another exti-a session for the purpose of passing a loan bill.
True, another session will be a heavy expense, but at present it
Of Thcf o was a threatened danger to Hawaiian sugar from the
direction of Cuba, but the beet sugar men and the Louisiana cane
planters have taken up the fight to rule out Cuban sugar, and the
fight will be a winning one. New capital may now confidently be
expected to find its way in Hawaii, and the full development of the
sugar industry will proceed.
J Judging from the tone of the California papers, the Golden
Stat would not regard Hawaii a desirable addition. A very strong
feeling of opposition has also developed in Hawaii, and probably
nothing more will be heard about the matter, for many years,
"Hawaii for the Hawaiians" will be the motto, henceforth.
J55 The government has no legal right tc use any part of the
$235,000 which was deposited by the Chinese as a guarantee fund,
and to do so will simply be to tamper with trust funds.- No matter
what the necessities of the Islands may bet common honesty

the figure kept up the good humor
of the body and finally he had to
asree to the suggestion that the
sum be placed at $5,000, and so got
that through. One of the most in
teresting tights of the day was on
the subject of the Polipoli spring.
When the item of Jiula water pipes
came up the attention of the com
mittee was called to the fact that a
decision had been reached by the
executive to allow Dr. Raymond the
use of the water Trom the spring for
a certain sum. This brought out
Emmeluth and C. Brown, with ob
jections. Senator Brown said that
the spring was the only source of
supply for the people of Kula, and
that it was decidedly wrong to allow
any one to pipe the water thirty
miles awaj', as was proposed. Em
meluth said that he was opposed to
special privileges, though Dr. Ray
mond was a friend of his personally.
Mr. Emmeluth then mo3d that the
item pass at $5,000 for the Kula
pipes, with th amendment that the
pipe line have the exclusive use cf
the water from the Polipoli spring.
This went through without objection

The item "Road Lahaina to Mana

At the United States Geological
Survey tho recent tliscovericB of oil
in Texas, Wyoming and California,
are regardod with complaisance, not
only because they will add millions to
the visible wealth of the country, but
bflcause they furnish additional fields
for investigation into the source and
origin of the various gi'ados of ''oil,"
savs the Baltimore Sun.
With all the study and original re
search which have boen going on for
many yoars in connection, with pet to
leutra there is much ignorance on the
subject. Where it can. bo found,
whence it comes nun its origin are
all unanswered questions. When a
gusher is struck it spouts a black
fluid known as "oil." This may be a
compound of 50 or 100 different oils,
which have to be seperitted as far as
possible before being marketed. The
qualities and characteristics of oil
vary hot only in the different wells,
but often in the same well, the yield
from one stratum being different
from ithat of another lower down.
The oil of the United States is entire
ly different from that found in Russia
Java or Peru, which" fact substan
tiates the theory that the several
oils have different origins.
One of the theories as to the
source of oil is that it comes from the
fat of animals or fish which had been
squeezed out or distilled through
countless ages to be collected in the
Experimenting on this line in an
effort to verify the theory, Warren
and Storer took menhaden oil and.
through distillation, produced a kero
sene, which they marketed without
an artificial nature being discovered.
In 1888 Engler distilled under pres
sure half of a ton of menhaden oil,
from which he obtained petroleum
distillates. The distillate was browu
but flourescent. Sixty per cent con
sisted of saturated hydrocarbons
which he isolated and identified a
number of oils usually contained hi
tho products of certain oil fields. He
also purified e product and made
good kerosene oil. Not satisfied with
this he went further and showed that
other fats, as oleiu, will yield petro-

Another theory that tho oil is from
vegetable matter is apparently sus
tained in the case of the Russian
fields, where the oils contain a sub
stance similar to distillation products
of coal tar, such as benzole.
xne tnaory nas Deen advanced as
to tho origin of the Pennsylvania oil
fields, lhat the petroleums of Penn
sylvania owe their origin to the ef
fect of heat upon the underlvins
limestones and shales of tho Silurian
age. It is claimed that the same
force which caused the Appalachian
cbain to uplift, passing through the
limestones and shales of tho oilurian
age at a modified temperature dis
tilled the oil already contained in
these shales and conglomerate sands
of tho Devonian age, where it was
condensed and filtered, and found its
home iu the open, porous conglome
rates which characterize the Cat
skill, Portage and Chemung periods
of the Devonian age.
It therefore, seems to be an open
question as to whether oil is of min
eral, vegetable or animal origin, and
it will doubtless remain ooen for
some tune to come.
