ONLY A FAIR CHANCE.
Sprtco is given for tho following
from a rccout number of the Bos
Captniu John Codmau goos far
astray in one o our local Demo
cratic nowspapors in attacking tho
Oceanic Steamship Company bo
caiiBO it asks an added compensa
tion of 80,000 for carrying theAus
trnliau mails, and tho Boston
Journal because it favors tho pro
position. This compensation is not de
sired, becuuso a "ring of domestic
ship-buildora" has compolled tho
company to pay a "needless and
excessivo price" for its Amorican-
built ships, as Captain Codmau
intimates. Tho company seeks
no consideration on that point
whatever. It has been running
its vessels for eight or ton years,
and has operated thom successful
ly; but now tho conditions have
changed. Covoting tho trade
which tho lino has brought to
San Francisco merchants and tho
prestigo which it has won for tho
American ilag in the Antipodes,
the British and Canadian Gov
ernments have established a rival
lino of British steamships be
tween Vancouver aud Australia.
This British lino receives a sub
sidy of $14,533 por voyage, which
is about to bo incroased to $18,750.
Tho American steamers receive
only $1015.40 por voyage from
our Government for carrying tho
mails, aud also S57G9 Lorn Now
Zealand that is, a British colony
actually deals more gonorously
with theso American steamers
than tho United States itsolf does.
The increased subsidy of 80,000
is asked for meroly as an offset to
tho British subsidy and to givo
tho American lino a fair fighting
chauco against its British competi
tor. This is tho situation in a nut
shell. Tho increased compensa
tion is sure to bo granted by Con
gress, and it cannot bo and will
not be objected to by any Ameri
can who has a spark of genuine
patriotism in his composition.
Tho benches used for seats in
Emma Square are in a very di
lapidated condition. Some havo
been broken up and carried off
for firewood and others havo sim
ply rotted to pieces. Of those re
maining some havo seats and no
backs and some havo backs
and no seats. Commission
er Marsden has givon tho matter
his attention somo timo since but
his representations havo so far
been ignored. Tho stumbling
block seems to bo in tho Depart
ment of Public Works. Let us
have somo modern and comfort
able benches in tho public parks.

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. We have received five
of the TRIBUNE LADIES'
WHEELS on this steamer and
have more on the way. These
wheels are of this year's make,
direct from the factory, no back
numbers, and have all the latest
We have also a number of
Tribune racers and gent's road
sters, and a number of "Zim
my" wheels. This is an en
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
paring" with. In fact we
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
handles, butcher knives, skin
ning knives, knives with cork
screws in them for camping
out or staying at home. In
fact we have all sorts of knives
suitable for all sorts and con
ditions of people.
