Senator Baldwin from tho Com
initteo on Commorco prcsontod nu
olnborato report on tho account
due by tho Oceanic Steamship
Company to tho Hawaiian Gov
mont, which showed that tho Com
pany owed tho Government $18,
838.97 for water, port charges,
hospital foes, etc., and that thoy
wore entitled to a credit on that
amount of $15,818.30 for carrying
the mails to Snu Francisco ana
tho Colonies at regular sea postage
rates, leaving a balance duo tho
government of $3,025.01, which was
about the charge made for tho item
of water alone. Undoran act of tho
special session of tho present
Legislature tho govornmont was
given full authority to mako con
tracts with any steamship com
panies for carrying tho mails, and
under that authority thoy had
made a contract with tho Cana
dian Australian Company under
tho terms of which tho charges
for water, etc., wore remitted, but
no contract had b6on made with
the Oceanic Company, tho reason
given boing that tho agents hero
had not tho authority to mako a
contract. Tho Minister of Fi
nance had written to tho head
quarters of the company, sug
gesting a contract, but no answer
had been received. The commit
tee had ascertained that tho
amount of mail mattor carried by
tho Canadian Company was only
14 per cent that carried by tho
Oceanic Compouy aud they were
of opinion that the sorvico of the
Oceanic Company was so much
more valuable to the country that
the government could oiTord to be
more liberal with them than witli
any other company. Tho com
mittee recommended that tho
government bo empowered to grant
tho Oceanic Company tho free
uso of water to a reasonable
extent and to cancel tho
present indebtedness of the
company. On motion tho report
of tho committee was adopted.

penalty for assault with a deadly
weapon at 81000 fine or two years
imprisonment ns the maximum.
Tho Liconso Bill was then taken
up and road for tho second timo.
Section 12 prohibiting tho Bale
of alcohol by any ono not a licens
ed physician, brought on a long
discussion. Minister Damon and
Bop. Winston favored the passago
of tho section. Bops. By croft aud
ltobortson epoko against it. Bop.
Olunoy cited an instance whoroin
tho easo with which alcohol was
obtained led to tho manufaoturo
of a variety of a liquor, of which
ho was induced to take oue swal
low, and which was of such
strength as to wreclv his mental
faculties for tho whole day.'
Bop. Bycroft proposed amend
ing tho section so as to allow tho
sale by druggists, in small quanti
ties, to private individuals. Sec
tions 12, 13 and 14 woio referred
to a select committee for amend
ment. Sections 10, 10A and 1013 im
pose a tax of $50 on agencies, $100
on stock aud bond business and
$250 on money loanors. Bop. Ka
mauoha spoko strongly against
tho tax and rocoinmeuuecl striking
out tho sections entirely.
Minister Damon asked consider
ation for tho measure Saying that
ho had no desiro to forco it upon
tho House and expected it amend
ed. Bop. Bobertson gavo a strong
argument against tho bill. Ho
stated that it was unpopular with
a vast majority in,that it placed an
additional bunion upon tho class
es least able to bear it.
On the other hand tho great
paying industry of the country,
sugar, was not touched by tho
bill. Othor courses were open to
tho Ministor, especially tho bills
now ponding; the Incomo Tax law
and tho law compelling absonteo
owners and participators in tho
great profits from tho sugar in
dustry to pay taxes. Thoro was al
so tho modified laud tax law. Allot
thoso measures are eminently just.

A FEW WORDS ON BICY
CLES AND CUTLERY.
In a Coast newspaper de
voted to the bicycle business
we read that dealers in bicy
cles are authority for the state
ment that the business aspect
of the bicycle trade has mate
rially changed during the past
year. Instead of the main
business consisting in dealing
with men's wheels, quite the
contrary is true. Dealers are
now doing their utmost to
attract the eyes of the women.
All of-which shows that the
ladies are taking very kindly
to bicycle riding all over the
world. And it is the same
here, the demand for ladies'
wheels is continually increas
ing. Wf hnvp rpppivpH fim

tirely new machine, named
after the great rider, Zimmer
mann, and we shall be pleased
to explain its merits to in
But we started in to say a
few words on CUTLERY, of
which we received an im
mense assortment on the Aus
tralia, which is now unpacked
and on exhibition. In table
cutlery we have an immense
variety in new and elegant
patterns and all sizes. In pock
et cutlery we have a number
of new designs. Knives to
cut lead pencils and knives to
trim your finger nails with, and
knives to cut down your ex
penses with. We have prun
ing knives which are just the
thing for the members of the
Legislature to use in cutting
down the appropriation bills,
and some suitable for the Ad
vertiser man to do his "cheese

have all kinds of knives, large
and small, light or heavy, but
all of them of the best quality
We have carving knives
with ivory, buckhorn or bone
