THE REGISTRATION ACT.
Our correspondent who writes
about tlio Begistratiou Act can
not convict this paper o neglect
to give publicity to tho matter.
Boforo tho bill was printed tho
Bulletin gave a complete synop
sis of tho corresponding bill of
1892. Thoro was not tho slightest
response of dissent to tho measure
from tho public, and tho bill slid
through its second reading tho
test stage in tho House of Bep
reseutatives without a ripple of
opposition. When it came up for
third rending nnd was opposed
by two members of tho Cabinet
nnd only defended by ono, this
papor gave a full report of tho
debute thut took placo in the
House. There was a delay of sev
oral days beforo tho final vote was
taken, yet neithor our present
conopondent nor ' anyone else
Baid a word in tho meantime.
What inference could bo drawn
from such unvaried silence than
that tho public gavo an indifferent
consent to the measure? Prob
ably most people consider that
compuloory registration, with
tho obligation on every
freeman to carry a cer
tificate of his idontity about
with him, is needed to complete
that brilliant constellation of laws
that illuminate Hawaiian freedom,
namely: the passport law, tho
contract labor law, tho press cen
sorship laws, and tho dangerous
persons la'w. If there aro any
considerable number of porsons
who are as apprehensive of the
pending measure as our present
correspondent, they ought lo
speak quickly boforo tho Senate

all nationalities on Union Bquure.
J. M. Vivas was spokesman of
tho committeo and in u few words
presented tho Minister with a pe

given in our report of tho House

A church congregation down
in Sanders, Ky was dismissed
most summarily under un
pleasant circumstances two
Sundays since. Right in the
middle of the preacher's dis
course there bolted into the
church through the half-open
door what appeared to be a
black and white cat, closely
followed by a yellowMog. Cat
and dog ran swiftly , down the
middle aisle to the platform.
The preacher taken unawares,
did the natural thing, kicked
at the cat, hit it, and' landed it
squarely in the middle of the
congregation. Then it turned
out that the cat was a skunk.
The rest of the story is left to
the imagination of the reader.
This week we want to call
your attention especially to the
Alaska Refrigerator and
give you a few items concern
ing its construction.
To give strength and dura
bility, an inside body, or frame
is made of well dried, matched
wood, to which hardwood
cleats are solidly nailed. Upon
these cleats the outer body, or
frame, is built.
The inner frame is made
from perfectly. odorless wood,
and is lined with ziric. Po
lished as bright as, a mirror,
presenting a very clean and at
AH exposed wood, as under
the lids and about the doors,
is odorless tulip poplar,
thoroughly shellaced. This
makes the Refrigerator clean
Between the outer and inner
walls there is an incli and a
half space filled with Pure
Charcoal. There is nothing
so good in every way for fil
ling the space between the
two walls of a Refrigerator as
The locks are entirely new
in principle, and are, (Without
exception, the best eer used
on a Refrigerator. They will
keep the door closed perfectly
tight, even if they were left
one-eighth inch loose.
The hinges are very strong,
beautiful in design, and made
expressly for The Alaska
All the trimmings are solid
brass, dipped finish, this being
the latest style in fine brass
From the results of tests
made during the past three
years, we are convinced that
the Alaska is the best Re
frigerator in the market, in
construction, in power to pre
serve perishables, in economy
of t ice, and, in fact, in all the
points necessary to make them
first-class in every respect.

Tho inhoritanco tax on Lihuo

cstato of tho lato Kato L. You
mans, who died atRidgefiold,Con

was paid into tho Judiciary Clerk's
Judge Carter tho othor day do
cidod that tho dovieeos of tho lato
Mrs. Ann Maria Dimond, being
her grandchildren, woro liable to
tlio inheritance tax on tho proper
ty devised. The property consists
of tho Dimond block in King
street, in which John Nott's sloiu
is situated, and it lias been valued
by the judicial appraisers at $14,
000. on which tho tax is 8700.
Henry "Watorhouso and Julia
H. Watorhouso, tho oxecutors
of tho estate, havo appealed
against tho decision. Tho statute
prescribing taxation of inheritan
ces passed in 1892 exempts tho
father, mothor, husband, wife,
child, brother, sistor, wife or wid
ow of a son, tho husband of a
daughtor, or any child adopted iu
conformity with law, or corpora
tions exomptod by law from taxa

heritors aro tho children of Mrs.
Henry "WatorhouBO and of Mrs.
Sarah Kinney, both daughters of
tho testator. Judge Cartor adopt
ed tho principle that grandchildren
aro not exempted from paying tho
tax under tho statute.
Results of Honesty.
"My watch is giving mo tho ut
most satisfaction; I actually bo
liovo it does not vary a second
during tho week."
Pleasant remarks these. Just
the kind of balm a watchmaker
noeds occasionally to keep up
his spirits. For you know
working till day on n high
stool, a glass firmly screwed
into one eye, looking nt objects
so minute it takes a microscope
t' d st'iiguisb them, is not tho
plasantest occupation which
could fall to tho lot of man.
3o it's no wonder a fellow
gets all out of sorts occasion
ally, and then it's the timo a
few remarks like the above
does what all tho patent medi
cine in tlio world could not ac
complish, cheers up, makes
things look brighter, the next
job goes all the smoother.
Speaking of the above watch:
It was an old one. Tho Wearer
had used it steadily for forty
years. Id had run enougli;had
rovolved its wheels so long and
steadily, that nt last it was
tired out. Tho pivcts were so
worn, the wheels just wobbled
and wobbled, then stopped al
together. What was to bo
done? Throw it away? Get a
new one. Yea, but tlio wearer
valued it fur its associations, it
was as dear to him as hs best
friend ;so nothing would do but
build it all over as it were, re
new the parts, put some go
into it. That we accomplished
it to the outire satisfaction ot
the owner, his remarks above
would surely leave no room for
doubt. And wo enn do the
same with yours, sometimes
they g' a little too far, and tho
cost for reconstruction is too
much, but generally no work
is too intricate fur us. It is
that which wc brag about,
complicated work is our strong
hold. Isn't it reasonable now
to suppose that w'o aro better
able- to do your less intricate
work? "Wouldn't it bo safer to
give us the- custody of your
watch altogether, no matter
what tho trouble, and havo a
feeling of certainty as to its
