With roforoncc to a supposition

upon this alloged fresh conspiracy
against the llopublic.
A late exchiuigo noticos tho
findingof a gigantic specimen of tho
Arctic rhinoceros which bus lately
boon discovoied frozjn up in an
iceborg which stranded at the
Lena Delta. This specimen was
Hovcn feet taller than the lnrgost
vurioty of tho rhinoceros of today,
nnd was armed with two nose
horns, tlio shortest of which was
three foet nnd two iuches in
length. Tho uniranl doubtless bo
louged to an antediluvian species
of rhinoceri. and his immense
size gives f-otrio idea of the enor
mous and trriihlo bests which
inhabited thispljiiot in 'Iih "days
when the "artli was yotirg." The
creaturo's body was ot.tiroly cov
ered with vory long thick hair,
which proves that tho Arctic re
gions were his natural habitat.
The editor of tho Hawaiian lriB

his magazine, that the editor of
ono of the most prominent nows
pnpers in Honolulu hud told him
he could go only kj far and then
thb bell was rung. The Advf r
tiser lias declared that thoro is
not a single bell in its sanctum
nud implied that if thore is ono no
person would dure ring it but the
editor. Tho Bulletin has no
hositancy in saying that bells do
not form any Dart of tho oflice
furniture in its sanctum or busi

"THE FREE AD" AND THE
SUPERIORITY OF THE
In our last advertisement in
this column we called atten
tion of the public to the
Stearns wheels which are now
being sold in this city. We
stated without fear of contra
diction that they were back
numbers, manufactured in 1894
and shipped to the Pacific
Coast as up to date wheels
when they are not. We rei
terate that assertion more for
cibly in this ad. It has not
been denied and cannot be,
and we again caution buyers
not to be deceived with anti
quated machines which are
represented as containing all
the latest improvements.
An ad of the Stearns agency
in an afternoon paper, praising
the Tribune wheel and giving
it a good send-off, refers to a
letter written by H. F. Terrill,
the well-known scorcher, con
cerning the Tribune wheel.
In spite of their assertion to
the contrary, we deny that the
agents of the Stearns wheel
have seen or read the private
letter of Harry F. Terrill to the
Tribune rider here (meaning
Tommy King) but as there is
nothing secret about it we
print the whole of it relating
to bicycles below. If the
Stearns agents can get any
satisfaction out of it they are
more than welcome. Mr. Ter
rill says: "I am riding a
Stearn, 16 lbs. Say, Tom, the
Tribune wheel has an awful
good reputation through the
East. I did not think much
of it before I came East.
It is considered one of the best
wheels in the world."
The balance of the letter
refers to private matters but
the Stearns agents may peruse
the whole of it at any time.
The explanation of Ten-ill's
riding a Stearns wheel lies in
the fact that he is under con
tract with the manufacturers
to do so, consequently he can
not ride a Tribune although it
is evident he would if he had
In our last advertisement we
asked any intending pur
chaser to take one of the
Stearns wheels to any first-class
mechanic and have liim take it
apart and compare it with the
corresponding features of the
Tribune wheel. We knew that
an honest opinion would be
that the Tribune is by far the
better, wheel and hence made
the challenge. We renew that
challenge and intend to keep it
before the public. It has not
been accepted and it will not
