Thero is nothing in which Ho
nolulu is f farther bohind tho age
than in tho character of its school
buildings. The largo private
schools or colleges are a credit in
their housing to tho city, while
tho principal schools owned by
the Government aro quartoted in
buildings that would bo a disgrace
to a small country town elsewhere.
As ono of these rmblio sohools
giving academic instruction
charges high fees to pupils in overy
department, including tho lowest
primary, tho battorod and hid-oous-looking
group of buildings
in which it is situated is all the
more discreditable to tho Govern
ment. That is tho Fort-street
school, nnd tho Royal school, with
a high-school grado but wholly
free, is housed in a barn
like structuro, old and dingy, nnd
in the matter of convenience out of
sight bohind tho times. The Board
of Education is considering tho
advisability and feasibility of
leasing tho Bishop promises on
Emma street for a high school
building. This may be very woll
as a temporary expedient, but it
should not bo thought of as a per
manent arrangoment. Honolulu
should own and not rent n high
school building that would com
pare favorably with the host ar
chitecture that has lately enhan
ced the appearance of thecity.
There are said to be ono hundred
and fifty children eligible for high
school grades at the presont time,
and suitable permanent accommo
dation for theso, and a probable
increase of many more, shon'd bo
projected without any dolny.
It is ii tvond-r that residents who
frequently go abroad, seeing
the style of hoIiooI buildings now
in voguo in progressive towns,
should not long ago havo btirred
up an agitation on this subject.
Country sohools tuko a largo pro
portion of uvailablo school funds,
and, without any material in
crease in the appropriation to bo
oxpoclod whilo so many soldiers
and police are maintained, it is
probably hopoless to look for do
cent school biiidings in town
from tho Government. Still it
does not look economical to pay
heavy iont for u high school build
ing, uud Unit for a structuro uovor
intended for Huoh a purposo, re
quiring in coiiHoquenco a largo
expenditure for alterations. Ho
nolulu must make up its mind,
in this as woll as in somo otbor
mattors, to bo loft to its own re
sources for local improvements.
Tho country districts huvo already
enough occasion for jealousy.
With seotarian schools for tho
benefit of different nationalities
other Mian English nnd Hawaiian
thrown on tho hands of tho
Board of Education, through tho
new constitution's deprivation of
aid, it is timo that a measure was
discussed for having all Hono
lulu's public schools placed undor
a local board of commissioners,
with provision for thoir support
obtained largely from local taxa
tion. All classes and nation
alities have au interest in good
public schools, and all should bo
required to assist in their mnin-touanco.
Franco has another canal pro
joot undor consideration, ono of
vastly more importance to hersolf
than any ditch across the groat
American isthmus. It is to con
noot hor Mediterranean ports with
the Atlantic, and mn from
Bordoaux to Narbonno. This
canal would greatly lesson the
Yaluo of Gibraltar to Great Britain.
President Pauro lately assured a
delegation that waited on him in
behalf of tho canal, that tho Gov
ernment wns greatly interested in

Somo tests were mado latoly in

fifty yards, the bullet was stopped

As the days go by the bicy
cle is coming more and more
to the front. It is becoming an
actual necessity in almost every
department of the world's af
fairs. Emperor William of
Germany has already recog
nized its utility in his
vast military organization
and has equipped several regi
ments with wheels. This sug
gestion is offered to Col Mc
Lean, who is said to be think
ing of organizing a cavalry
Instead of mounted police
whvnot furnish the guardians
of the peace with bicycles, the
same as is done in Chicago,
New York, San Francisco and
other large cities. In his re
cent report the attorney general
auates m glowing terms on me
utility of the mounted police
in the outlying districts. What
is the matter wirh mount
ing them on wheels? This sug
gestion is respectfully offered
to Marshal Hitchcock and his
superior. A good horse costs
more than a good bicycle, but
irrespective of that there are
several reasons why the wheel
is the more economical and
useful of the two. Among
them may be mentioned:
1. Bicycles don't eat hay at
$30 per ton.
2. Bicycles don't munch
oats and barley all day long when
they can get it, and
Bicycles don't bite nor tread
on your pet corns.
Bicycles never get tired and
they don't drink.
Now there are bicycles and
bicycles, of all sorts, sizes and
shapes but none of them come
up to the Monarch in beautv,
strength and swiftness.
It is the strongest, fastest, and
most beautiful wheel that is
manufactured, and tne wheel
men of America know it.
Those in Hawaii have only to
try the machine once to arrive
at the same opinion.
The Monarch Bicycle Co. is
making this year two special
grades of wheels. We have
them both. One sells at $90
and the other at $105. The
$90 wheel is for those riders
who are not particular about
having the very lightest weights,
but who want a good, service
able wheel, sold under a bind
ing guarantee, which will run
easily and wear well. The$10!
wheel is the latest product in
high grade wheels. It is ad
solutely the best high grade
bicycle on the market, strong,
stiff, staunch, light and easy
running andgivingentire satis
faction to alI3who ride it. To
sum up its perfections it is
the monarcn of all wheels.
We have received the first
consignment of a dozen of
these wheels and they are
going off like hot cakes. We
sold two of them this morn
ing before lunch. We have
several other consignments on
the way and will soon be in
condition to supply the army,
police and other government
departments, with a few left
over for the navy when its offi
cers feel like taking a spin out
to the beach. To the eenera
public we would say ."Don't
purchase a bicycle till you have
seen the Monarch." If you
don't buy of us then there will
be no hard feelings on our part.
