THE TWO LINES.
Somo Httlo nov8 regarding the
prospects of mail communication
touching Honolulu comes by tlio
Mariposa's mail. If tlio offer of
tho Ocoanic-Union combination
should be accepted by Now Zca
land, with sufficient aid from
othor colonics, wo should soo a
splendid lino of steamships es
tablished. After tho interest ex
cited by tho Ottawa conforenco,
tho .Canadian-Australia voute,
howovor, in hardly likely to bo
abandoned by tho colonies now
aiding it, and Mr. Ward's nego
tiations with the Outiiidinn Gov
ernment will propably bring New
Zealand into tho compact. That
gontlcman on his return homo,
indeed, spoko in fuvor of giving
support to both services. Al
though tho proposal to muko
efforts for- developing trade with
Canada is unfavorably regarded
by such an influential paper as
the Auckland Herald, yet rory
strong influences nro in tho air to
promote closer rolations between
tie Groat British dependencies
washed by tho North and South
Paci-fic. How potent those in
cosfluon 'may yet bo with tho po
pular mind of Now Zoaland wo have
not the moans of judging. From
all that lias transpired within tho
past year, in mattors relating to
communications between Canada
and tho Australasian colonies,
the probability at present seems
to bo that both the Sun Franoisco
and tho Vancouver linen will be
handsomely aided by tho Colonics)
if thoy can thereby secure fort
nightly communication through
both with' tho shores of North
America. Both would cortainly
iu that en so continue to make Ho
nolulu a way station, so that such
an eventuality is to us a consum
mation devoutly to be wished.
From an interesting budget of
SumoA news elsewhere, it will bo
seen that tho group haB as yot no
end of its troubles in sight.
There is nothing particularly
now by tho ur.il about cable
mattors. Treasurer "W rd of Now
Zealand seems to think a cable
dots not dopend on tl;o British
Oovornmont assistance. In that
caso the Hawaiian annexation
freaks would cut no figure in the
Select Iludnct of Sown from Ilcucntli
tlio Noulliern Croud.
From files brought by tho
Oceanic Stoamship Mariposa tho
following interesting items are

which seriously affected the Gov

dation and of $500,000 to promote
settlements on Crown Lands wore
struck out. On the bill's return
to the Houso, I'roraior Roid mov
ed amid loud cheers to lay it
aside. Tho opposition members
shirked tho division and the
motion .carried without a voto
recorded against it. Thore was a
disorderly sceno in the House, -caused
by audiblo remorkB made
by members of the upper
chamber who wero sitting in
roar of tho Speukor's platform.
The Speaker puid no attention to
tho conduct of tho Councillors,
and a member of the House who
persisted in calling for "ordor,"
after being askod to keep his seat,

confusion Vromier Reid cried,
'Turn tho fossils out." Tho gal

BULLETIN, JULY 25, 1896.
Most people make their wills
before they die, and some of
them are great curiosities in
their way. Among the many
curious legacies made lately is
that of a Christiana man who
directs that his whole fortune
shall be expended in bicycles.
A Norwegian newspaper which
does not give itselt up to the
comic element relates that a
Dutch lawyer, named Nikolson,
bequeathed the whole of his
property to trustees, to be em
ployed in the purchase of bicy
cles for the use of children at
tending school, while part of
the money is to go towards
paying the teacher to train the
boys m bicycle riding.
The validity of the will has
been disputed by the sons of
the testator, who refuse to ac
knowledge it, so that it is still a
question of doubt whether the
children will reap the benefit
of the strange bequest. That
the testator was sincere enough,
and that he recognized in the
wheel untold blessings which
might have escaped the ob
servation of minds of less
acumen, the concluding portion
of the will should go to prove.
It says :-
1 have always found a bi
cycle capital protection against
the importunity of those
people who persist in stopping
you in your walk to spin along
yarn in tne not sun or in tne
biting east wind. My machine,
unlike a horse, never shied once;
and in my drives I have had no
need to intrust life and limb
to the tender mercies of a
Now that lawyer had good
hard, solid sense and plenty of
it, in fact, a good deal more of
it than most lawyers are credit
ed with, and yet not more than
many boys and girls in Hono
lulu have, for are there not
many of the latter who are
spending their whole fortunes
in purchasing a bicycle and thev
are wise in spending their
money on something that will
give them their money's worth
The bicycle of the Khedive
of Egypt is a gorgeous ma
chine, almost entirely covered
with silver plating but if anyone
wants a duplicate of it we can
furnish it, or if something
"English you know" is wanted
we can supply similiar ma
chines to those used by the
PrinceEof Wales' .boys and girls,
all of whom are expert riders.
But for common every day
People like those who reside in
aradise, we mean the Hawaii
an Paradise, the Alonarch is
the machine to buy. It gives
you better value for the money
than any other make, and we
can furnish it in any style and
price. We have received by
the Australia the largest con
signment of wheels ever brought
to the islands, and also a
complete line of extra fittings.
If any portion of a Monarch
wheel frets broken or out of
order we can replace it at a
moment's notice at factory
Mr. T. V. King, who arrived
by the same steamer, will have
charge of the mechanical depart
ment of our bicycle business.
His large experience in that line
enables us to guarantee satisfac
