DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
FEB. 7, 1890.
In this irisuo will bo found a
fiiimmnry ot Hnwniinn news for
tho outgoing miiil by tho steamer
Moiiowui. This is done to onnblo
tho public to dispatch tho news,
iu tho smallest possiblo bulk, to
their frieuds abroad. Thero is
littlo calling for comment in tho
budget. Although sinco tho close
of tho holiday season, which was
particularly active with our mer
chants, business geuorally has
been rather dull, yot thoro is a
Bpirit of hopefulness prevalont
regarding trailo for the rest of the
year. Tho chief factor in this
feeling is tho rising market for
sugar, o.ich incoming mail from
tho Coast now recording a point
higher than the preceding nnn.
Rico, tho second staple in import
ance, is, however, in a low condi
tion. It is found unprofitable to
mill tho crop. Should thoro bo
no revival in this industry, many
nativo landowners, who leaso
lands to the Chinese for growing
rice, will be apt to sustain a seri
ous loss of income. The political
sky is sorono and has boon so ever
sinco tho last of tho political pri
soners wore given their liberty by
tho Government as a New Year's
gift. It will probably prove
that the arguments advanced
by tho agitators for their
release, that such clemency
would havo a good offect upon the
situation, wore not ill taken. There
is no truth in the malicious reports
sent abroad of a secession senti
ment existing on Hawaii, the
largest and naturally richest isl
and of tho group. It is not im
probable, however,, that a move
raont may take Bhapo before very
long on that island for local self
government, under a municipal
system, at least for tho rapidly
growing town of Hilo if
not for tho different taxation
districts. Much interest attaches
to tho first regular session of tho
Legislature of the Republic, which
is summoned to convene on tho
19th inst. Several commissions
on important subjects, such as the
liquor traffic, tho auditing of pub
lic accounts, land transfer system,
otc, will report. The President
will probably recommend amend

schemes of public improvement
and private ontorpriso will doubt
less matorinlizo. It will bo ono of
the busiest sessions of a Legisla
ture over held in Hawaii, and it
is to bo lioed ono of tho most
useful for tho country. Honolulu
may havo a system of sewerage,
also an electric street railway, out
of tho session. Sanitation has
bocomo ono of tho loading subjeots
horo sinco tho visitation of
cholora last autumn. Our volca
no has lately rosumed activity,
tho nows of which having gono
abroad, by previous mails, will
probably soon bring us many
strangers to entortain. Nearly
every Btcamor now brings ono or
moro men who como to look into
our rising coffco industry. It is
only a mattor of time when coffeo
will bo a vigorous rival of sugar
for tho commercial king-ship of
Kate Fiold approached Chief
iTustico Judd last Monday with an
earnest appeal for the manuscript
of his lecture on tho earlier con
stitutions of Hawaii, a full report
of which was published fin the
Evening Bulletin of that date.
Hor argument to tho Chief Jus
tico was that tho Honolulu papers
would only garble it, whereas she
would be ablo to handlo it without
error in tho printing. However,
tho Bulletin didn't make a mess
of it, but got tho speech, "which, by
tho way, is a most valuable docu
ment, into its columns without
error. Miss Field must not ima
gino that becauso wo aro away
off horo in tho middlo of tho
Pacific, it should follow that wo
aro totally ignorant.
In this issue will bo found a
very full Bynopsis of statistics o
tho work of tlir Quoon's Hospital
for tho year 1895. It would seem
that tho institution is fairly real
izing tho main object of its royal
founder, Queen Emma, in the
number of Hawaiians availing
themselves of its bonofits, that
to them alone aro free. Tho
entire number of natives treated
was 730, or about two for ovory
day in tho year. An interesting
feature of tho figures is tho largo
number of Japanese having re
course to tho hospital. Tho Bul
letin wishes to keep tho hospital
prominently before tho public
oyo, partly for tho purpose of pro
moting tho object of having it
made free to the poor of alKna
tionalities. Under the control of
some of our best citizens as the
Queen's'1' Hospital is, it would bo
better no doubt to make it tho
foundation of a great general hos
pital, both from economical and
sanatory points of viow, than to
establish a now institution.
Hard Units of Kngllsli Peasantry
A farm laborer died recently iu
Lyminster, near Arundel, Eng
land, whoso wages while ho could
work wore S3.G0 a week, as ho
novor roso above a working bailiff
and cowman. He was able to
work until ho was 73, when ho
had saved no loss than $1000. On
this ha managed to live for twolvo
years longer, with a littlo help
from his former omployor. Thon,
as ho outlived his savings, ho had
to bo relieved by the poor law
officials, dying a pauper at 87.
EVENING BULLETIN FGDItUAllY 7, 1800.
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 Us 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 of 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 trie 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 superior
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.
