Kvidoiitly 8100,000 a yoar was

Mr. Floming's sokomo deponded
on a subsidy divided equally
between Great Britain, Canada
and Australia. Thore had not
been a sign of support from tho
British Government. In Austra

governments to bo dealt with , each
being liablo to a change of ad
ministration any day. South
Australia had a large claim
on tho Eastern Extension Cablo

of that colony at tho Ottawa Con

had U 000,000 roscrvo to fight all

ready to buy out claims on tho
Eastern Extension. Canada had
shown sho had strong men by th
obstacles they had overcomo,
greater ovon than tho cable pro

railway. Mr. luommgs scheme
had not, bowovcr, taken shape,
and dopended on tho co opera

Tho spoaker denied that monopo

of tho United States. It was not
so in respect to stroot railways.
If othor Hues connected here, our
peoplo would have tho benefit of

Mr. Thurston considered that
tho mounted police could be abol
ished shortly, and tho standing
military reduced ono-half, which
would save the ountry $60,000
a year. They could afford to pay
two-thirds of that for a cable. For
yeaia they had paid $37,500 n year
to the Oceunic Steamship Co.,and,
oxcollont us its survico had bcon,
it was not worth so muoh to tho
country as a cable would bo.
Mr. Sohaefor, being requested
to givo his viows from the chair,
favored deferring tho question to
the regular session, which would
meet in six months. Ho would
liko timo for public discussion
hero, and for hearing what oould
be done abroad. "When ho was
in Sau Francisco ho found a very
lively intorest in tho cubic. Do

If ho waited for our Legislature
ho could only connect with "Wash

ho snid Hugh Craig's company in

That company was only forinod

Mr. Lansing supported the
motion, bolieving tho contract was
tho only way to get a cablo.
Mr. flyman was in favor ofi ho
motion. Another yoar would be

Mr. Bolto agrood that tho sub

in putting this oxclusivo franchise
in tho hands of ono man to go all

Mr. Hyman Does Mr. Wido

Mr. "Waity's oxporienco taught
m to fight shy of exclusive fran

matorial difference in this case.
A condition might he put
in tho contract, to meet

confidence in Col. Spalding.
Mr. Swanzy complained that
Mr. Jonos had very adroitly in
timated that the rejection of his
motion would imply want of
confidence in the Cabinet. The
spoakor distinctly repudiated that
idea. Ho moved nn amendment
that tho Chamber is of opinion

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 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 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 :-
I have always found a bi
cycle capital protection against
the 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 1 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 they
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.

People like those who reside in
