"When llnwaii plnccH licreolf
in a position to nom n cultlo but
ton," snys tho Snu Krnnoito Cull,
"alio mny bo mire Hint America
will do tho rust." If America bad
offered a tonlb part of tbo ou
toutagoment, jiroiiortiountoly to
her interest and moans, which
Hawaii litis oflbrod to tbo project,
tho cable would bavo boon in
operation many years ago.
Elsewhere nro given iuti-rviows
tho San Franoisoo Call bns bad
with loading raonibors of tbo Pa
cific Cable Company provisionally
organized in that city. Those
gentlemen nro pleased with tl o
oablo moasuro of tbo Hawaiian
Government. What will thoy
say, however, if n speculator goos
ovor from horo, with an oigbtoon
months' option and n twonty
years' exclusive franchise in his
'pocket, to dictato any terms ho
plouses to them ?
Hon. S. G. Hilborn, Republic
an member of Congress for Cali
fornia, on his return home from a
visit to these islands, is roported
in different Snn Francisco papers
as being strongly opposed to an
nexation. Ho pronounces tbo
Republic of Hawaii to be a mili
tary oligarchy, conducted byja
small minority of tho people.
Mr. Hilborn favors closer and
firmor commercial relations with
the islands, togother with a pro
tectorate ovor them by the
United States. By this bo thinks
"both countries would derivo tho
bone fit of ain-xntion, while thoy
would bu allowed to govern them
solvo3 as they saw fit." Ho over
loks fie i robability that such an
arrangomont would aecuroly pin
tho oligarchy to the islands with
United States bayonets.
Although tbo cable contract
made with Col. Spalding by tbo
Executive contains somo modifi
cations in favor of tbo country, it
still involves a groater oxpondi
turo than is tho duo proportion of
Hawuit. Its ratos may bo all
right for tho start, but there
should be provisions for reducing
them with increased business.
Tho press rutos are prohibitive,
as, oven by cn-oporation,tho local
press can only afford to receive
vory meagor itoms. It is cboap
talk to say that this is tho most
fuvoniblo sobome yet offered to
tho Government, when there has
been no timo as yet for any
other response to tho overtures
oont.iined in tho oablo bill, which
was only signed by tho President

After routine proceeding this
mo ning, the two bills rotating to
tho p ruhiiBo of tho Bishop pre
mises for a high buhool was talcn
up. Tbo first ono passed second
rondiiig, and thoro was a discus
sion on tho second one.
Rop. Hnnunn wanted to know,
before voting on tho bill, wbcthor
the ohildron of poor pooplo, who
could not pay the foos, would bo
allowed to attend the higher
Minister Damon replied, saying
that somo yours ago tho Govern
ment relinquished tho feos in
public schools, retaining tbom,
howovor, in Fort stroet school.
Thoro a highor oIubb of instruc
tion was givon, requiring teachers
nt a higher rate of salary than in
any other sohools, and it was
thought only fair that tboso who
received those suporior sohool
privilooes should nav for them.
While thoro would bo no olass
distinction inado in tho proposed
high sohool, fees would bo charg
ed to those who received its bene
fits. Ho would bo in favor of a
cystom whereby pupils who could
pass a cortain standard in tho
common schools would bavo thoir
fees romittod in tho high school.
To innko tbo high school fro
would remove tho valnablo incen
tive to children which might bo af
forded by such a systom. This was
a matter for oonsidoration by tho
Roard of Education. He was
opposod to all class distinctions
and, as soon ns the country could
afford it, he would like to see all
school tuition foos abolished. In
answer to Rop. Ryoroft, tbo Min
ister of Financo said the $17,000
provided in tbo bill would como
out of current oxponses, but tho
Government was authorized to
subBtituto that amount with Gov
Rop. Ryoroft said that schools
were among tho most important
objects of expenditure, but if thoy
wanted money for schools they
could get it host by making ronds.
Thoro wad not a foot of land on
either side of tbo Volcano road
which had not been taken up.
By finishing tho road through
Puna the Government would get
$200,000 tho first yoar, whore it
now gots scarcoly $2000.
Minister Damon, in answer to
Rep. Bond, gavo an explanation
of the intorost account on bonds
held by the Roard of Education,
stating that interest had not boon
collected since Maroh 31, 1894,
but in lieu thereof the Board hud'
rocoivod an incroased appropri
ation. Tho area of the premises
was four and a third noroa. It
was proposed to oxtond Kukui
atroot from Fort to Emma street,
which would greatly increase tho
value of the proporty, making it
tho center of Honolulu. In un
swor to Rep. Hnnuna, tho Minis
ter said it would be a day and not
u boarding school.
A mossngo from the Ronuto an
nounced notion on matters men
tioned in our Senate report, and
Minister Smith reported tho sig
nature of five bills by the Presi
dent. Minister Smith also presented
a tnesBago from the Prosident.stat
ing that tho Exeoutive had made
a contract with Zephaniah S.
Spalding for construoting tho Pa
cific cable. As the contract in
volved tho expenditure of money,
a oopy of it was transmitted for
tho approval of tho House. The
Attorney-General suid further
that a joint resolution on tbo sub
ject would bo submitted, and he
inovod that the massngo lio on tho
table in the meantime.
Rop. Winston presonted Iho
report of tho oonforonco committoe
on tho bill re ting to tho impor
tation of alcohol, recommending
cortain amendments. A long con
versation took placo on tho proce
dure due upon so oh an occasion.
Ministor Smith informed tho
House that tho only thing to be
done wib either to accept or to re
ject the report.

Six carloads of excursionists
took advantage of the reduced

ono oar and was dropped on tho

was tho largost excursion taken

H. 11. WILLIAMS,
Aost people make their wills
before they die. and sonic of
(hem are ureal curiosities in
their way. Among the many
curious fegr.Mes made lately is
that of a Christiana man who
directs that his whole fortune
shall be expended in bicycles.
A Norwegian newspaper which
does nut give itself 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 in 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 :-
I have always found a bi
cycle capital protection against
thz importunity of those
people who persist in stopping
you in your walk to spin a long
yarn in the hot sun or in the
biting east wind. . My machine,
unlike a horse, nevershied 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
Prince of Wales' boys and girls,
all of whom are expert riders.
But for common every day
People like those who reside in

the machine to buy. It gives
you better value for the money

can furnish it in any style and

the Australia the largest con
signment of wheels ever brought

wheel gets broken or out of
order we can replace it at a
