" Tho old Fish Market at the
west end of Queen Street has of
late years bouomo noted for its
filthincsH, and as a breeding place
for disease, which is hastening the
extinction of the aboriginal raco.
An ofl'ort was made to provide
u new murkut, and a building was
eroded for this purpose so vera 1
yours since, but fr reasons not
known it has nover beon completed
and put into uso. That tho o't-nge
from tho old to the new market
would result in bonofit to tho
health of tho city, thoro can bo

tin last edition of tho " Tourists

Wo aro vory proud to show our
visitors our wondorful tolcphonio
and eloctlc light Hystoms, our
luxurious governm t buildings,
our Punchbowl and our I'ali, and
they think it is all "perfectly
lovely, don't you know," but whon
wo introduco them to that markot
of ours from which so much
of our food ooraos, and, bo
foro they havo fully rooovored
from tho Bhock, lot them know
that wo have no sewerage system,
it cannot bo wondered at if they
turn groon, and form tho opinion
that tho "Paradise of tho Pncifio"
is not all it is cricked up to bo.
Sinco Pasteur mado his first
discovorios in tho vitality of fer
montation a comploto ohango has
taken placo in the idoas of all
woll organized communities as to
the mannr in which meat and
vogotablos are kopt, and it is now
perfectly understood and univer
sally admitted that "scientific
cleanliness" is as all-important
in markets as it is in hospitals.
Without cleanliness wo must
havo always present tho iurisiblo
agonts of putrofaction and disoaso.
At tho a o timo lot it bo said
that tho daily washing and scrub
bing from roof to iloor of that
abomination wo call a market
would by no moans do away with
the gonns which lurk in its nooks,
orannios, corners, and in overy
crack of its rapidly decaying
boards. Nothing short of total
annihilation of those discaso-soak-od
walls, floors and tables will
meet with tho requirements of
tho case, and tho s loner they are
swopt out of that, tho better.
If through lack of funds, or
appreciation of the proper thing
to do. or because of indifferonoo
to public comfort and convoni
enco, it is impossible for tho
Govorninent to utilize the build
ing erooted for n murket, lot the
public suffer for lack of a market,
but do not foroe thorn to buy food
in a disoaso-haunted, filthy cdifioe
and to suffer because of a market.
Now, why cannot the now build
ing at tho foot of Alakea street be
utilized as a markot place instead
of the present abomination? Its po
sition is excellent; no hotter could
bo found. It has no build
ing abutting upon it but
stands oloar in an opon
space whore air can reach it from
all quartors. It is convenient to
tho harbor, so that fishermen can
easily reuch it with thoir catoh.It
is noarer to tho ico houso whoro

markot, and the next building to
it is the eloctrio light and power
station, whore tho now ico factory
and cold storage is about to bo
established. It is oonvoniont to
the dhipping, and far more con
venient to tho great majority of
Honolulu residonts than tho pro
sent market. A trumcar lino is
laid right up to it ready for use as
soon ns the markot is agoing,

H. E. Walker,
Aost people make their wills
before they die, and some of
them are great curiosities in
their way. Among the maiiy
curious fegr.ries 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 in bicycle riding.
The validity of the will has
been disputed by the sons of
the testator, wno retuse 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 a long
yarn in the hot sun or in the
biting east wind. My machine,

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.
But for common every day
people like those who reside in
