SATURDAY, MAY 9, 1890.
Another week o tho time al
lowed by law for tho session of
tho Legislature hns gono by and
littlo or nothing lids bpou nccom
plished in tho lino of necessary
legislation. A fow bills of minor
importance, such as amendments
to tho Civil and Criminal Codes
and tho liko havo passed, but on
tho necessary measures concern
ing taxation, lioonso and othor
bourcos of rovouuo littlo advance
has been made.
The Senate has held
short sessions during tho week,
hut only 0110 measure of iinport-
ance was acted on. This was
Minister Damon's bill lo refund
tho present indebtedness by issu
ing now bonus bearing 4J
cent interest, a discount of 15 por
cent and commission of 2J
per cent being allowed. This
project came up on a rcconfjidor
ation of a previous vote which
laid the bill on tho table, but was
again defeated by a vote of 9 to
5. Tho objection to tho bill was
tho largo discount and com
missions asked and the fact
that tho government had made no
efforts to obtain figures on tho
loan from tho United States, hav
ing relied solely on tho London
market. Tho general opinion of
tho Senate seemed to bo that tho
matter "had bettor rest for two
years, and in tho meantime torms
from Boston and othor cities in
tho United States .could bo ob
tained. Next week tho Sonata will
tako up another of Minister Da
mon's bills, which provides for a
loan of $2,000,000 for internal im
provomont8 on tho terms given
above. It is probable tho Senate
will cut tho sum down to $750,
000, tho amount actually needed,
and provide for tho issuanco of a
homo loan at 5 per cent intorest
Tho House has spent most of
tho wcok hacking tho License
Bill to piecos. This is another of
Minister Damon's pot measures
which passed tho Senate without
much difficulty. It is doubtful if
tho anthor of tho bill will rccog
nizo it after tho House gets through
vith it if they over do.
In tho meantime sixty-three
days of tho ninety allowed by tho
Constitution for tho session of tho
Legislature havo expired, and tho
people are beginning to grumble
at the expense and waste of time.
Tho Senate keeps well ahead of
its work, but tho House is wofully
Cricket seoms to bo having a
jevival in tho United States. At
a meeting of tho Chicago Cricket
Association, to arrange a schedule
for this season, six clubs wore pres
ent. It will bo romomborad that
a fow yoars ago a Philadelphia
team defeated tho English team on
its way to Australia. Tho game
is not so exciting to spectators as
baseball, but it is deemed by
good authority to bo a more bono
Jicial exercise to tho players, as
ivoll as moro suitable for thoso
who havo passed their youth.
Anyone who has imbibed tho Mo
lion that it is comparatively easy
to mako hits with tho broad criokot
bat should just test the matter by
facing a good bowler.
Sir Mackenzie Bowoll, who has
lately resigned as Promior of
Canada, began life as a printer's
devil, worked at tho trade for
many years, bought a paper with
his savings and pot into politics.
The Boston Park Commissioners,
it is alleged, will permit tho salo
o'f beer and light wines in the
public parks this summer.

states that while thoy ugreo with

A FEW WORDS ON BICY
CLES AND CUTLERY.
In a Coast newspaper de
voted to the bicycle business
vc read that dealers in bicy
cles are authority for the state
ment (hat 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.
