WEDNESDAY, - FEB. 6, 1800.
President Dolo has no doubt
gained information in his tour of
the island of Hawaii which ho
will bo ablo to turn to good no
count for tho advising of tho Legis
lature. It is bocoming constant
ly moro evident that tho resources
of tlieso islands, apart from tho
production of sugar cane, aro al
ready started upon an era of devel
opment. That they shall dovolop
in tho right way, and not with an
attondant crop of ovils, it is im
portant that the part of tho Gov
ernment in both tho executive
and legislative branches bo car
ried out as near perfectly us pos
sible. Tho land law should liavo
no loop-holes for grievances to
creep through in coming years,
making tho farmer's lot ono
of discontent othor tllan as
lie may himself bo to
blamo. Tho Presidout is re
ported as making tho discovery
that tho conditions of leasehold
homesteads aro regarded, or in
danger of being regarded, as too
much liko charity for tho native
Hrwaiians to accept. "While this
is rather creditable to tho charact
er of tho Hawaiian, thoro is some
risk of spoiling tho attractions to
the soil, by going too far in re
lieving tho law of its moro gener
ous features. If tho Hawaiian
could bo led to understand that
there is no charity about tho law,
but that it is intended to rcalizo
tho principle that the land is for
the people who will cultivate it,
producing national wealth while
supporting themselves and their
families, it would be bettor than
making things hardor for tho
homesteader for tho sako of grati
fying a feeling of independence
that is misplaced. President Dole
lias discovered what other observ
ers, as woll as dwellers of land, had
done before him, that there has
been a deal of road-making with
out system on the island of Ha
waii. Money has been oxpondod
in making roads that run to no
place in particular, or perhaps
start nowhere or else at wrong
places. It may cost a good deal
to gather up the ends, and connect
tho various routes into a system,
but tho work will have to be done
some time, and the sooner it is so
tho quicker will tho districts now
retarded in development for want
of internal communications make
a start forward on the course of
Ono of tho articles in tho Hilo
Tribune, repudiated by its direc
tors, is extromoly democratic, whilo
the othor is of a royalistic cast.
Neither of them reads liko tho
previous efforts of tho editor.
An exchange makes a noto of
experiments lately made at Kiel,
to connect warships with the shore
by telephone, as if it were some
thing particularly novel. Hono
lulu telephone companies have for
years given warships in port con
nection with tho entire Bhoro sys
tem. Tho vessels may oven hold
conversation with points on this
island thirty to forty miles away.

SUPERIORITY OF THE
The Scientific American,
which everyone acknowledges
as the leading scientific paper
in the United states, devotes
nearly a page of its issue of
January 4th to the considera
tion of bicycles. It selected
the Tribune as the highest
type of the best American
wheel made today. It says:
"Within the past three years,
the American bicycle industry
has grown up to dimensions
which fairly entitle it to be
considered representative of the
country and of the day. Every
day sees hundreds or wheels
of high and low grade made in
the factories of this country for
the American and foreign mar
ket. Three years ago the
English bicycle was consider
ed by many the best wheel,
and m possessor of such was
apt to consider himself better
equipped than his friend who
rode one of American manu
facture. Now, all is changed.
A visitor to England or to the
Continent, if a cycling enthu
siast, cannot fail to be impress
ed by the superiority of Amer
ican wheels as contrasted with
the foreign ones', and no wheel
man really au fait in his sub
ject would dream of buying
his wheel abroad, so superioi
is the American make. The
industry has brought about an
enormous development in the
manufacture of special tools
and of parts of bicycles.
Many assumed bicycle man
ufacturers simply buy these
parts and do their own as
sembling. But for the produc
tion of the absolutely high
grade American bicycle, a
factory is required which will
turn out practically all the
parts of the wheel manufac
tured, for unless such is done
one concern cannot be answer
able for the perfection of the
We select as the representa
tive of such a factory the works
of the Black Manufacturing
Company, of Erie, Pa., a com
pany which produce the high
est grade of wheel and which
put it on the market purely on
its merits without the adventi
tious advertisement of paid
riders. The wheel made by
this company, the "Tribune
Bicycle," embodies the best
possible practice and is corres
pondingly free from structural
variations of unproved merit."
Such praise from such a
high source should satisfy any
one of the superior merits of
the Tribune wheels.
We have them in all varieties
of the 1896 patterns, in Tan
dems, Racers, Ladies or gents'
wheels, and shall be happy to
show the 1896 improvements
to intending purchasers.
