THE BASEBALL SEASON,
Tho baseball season will open
oiio week from tomorrow, with a
gnmo betweon tho Honolulus and
tho Stars. Tho directors o tho
League have mado extraordinary
efforts to ensuro tho success of
tho coming season nnd to nrrnngo
inatters so that tho games will
prove attractive to tho public gen
erally. Among othor tilings, they
aro endeavoring to secure tho ser
vices of tho Hawaiian band for tho
oponing game. Uasobull is as much
an institution horo as in America
Bud may bo said to bo recognized
bb tho national gnmo. With
four clubs in tho field this
yenr, bringing togotlior a number
of new and enthusiastic players,
there should bo plenty of interest
in tho games on tho part of the
public. There always is, for that
matter, at tho oponing of tho sen
bon. It depends entirely on tho
clubs composing tho Lenguo
whether that intorest is maintain
ed throughout tho season or not,
In other words tho boys must
play good ball to ensure n good
attendance. Now that tho lnw
positively forbids any gambling
on tho games a great many peo
ple will probably attend who
hitherto have been deterred from
doing so on that account.
Among projected improvements
a change in the arrangement of
tho grand stand is ndvocated and
will certainly moot with favor
from the lady patrons. Last sea
Hon tho latter occupied tho middlo
compartment and had on ono side
the "bleachers" nnd on tho other
the male enthusiasts who lovo tho
gnmo. Tho new manngomout pro
pose moving tho chairs to tho loft
so that Indies who attend will bo
partly isolated from tho rest of
tho audience and separated to n
certain extent from those whoso
noisy enthusiasm over tho games
sometimes exceeds tho bounds of
trno decorum. This is a move in
tho right direction and should bo
TAXATION IN HAWAII.
In a recent editorial under tho
above caption tho San Francisco
"With tho chnngo Hint enmo
when the republic was organized
tho everyday citizen of Hawnii
managed to secure power enough
to mako himself foared. Ho mndo
many reformatory efforts, some of
which woro enrried into lnw.
Lately ho called for a view of tho
tax roll. The sugnr barons fought
the proposition savagely, but they
woio finally forced to givo way,
nnd now tho roll is public pro
perty. Its revelations nro highly
"Thirty-seven sugar corpora
tions in Hnwnii have $27,802,000
of capital stock, but they paid
last year only $101,114.89 in
tnxes, or about 36 per cent of tho
minimum amount required of
them by law. Had thoy yioldcd
a fnir tax on a fair valuation of
thoir property, Hawaii might not
have been obliged to borrow n
cent. But, as it wns, tho Govern
ment squeezed what it could out
ox the bmall taxpayer, nnd then
borrowed at high interest to mako
up the inevitable deficit, tho
money which had been wrong
fully withheld from its tax col
lectorri. This is a gnmo that tho
barons had played for years and
would like to have kept on play
ing. It is a gratifying sign of tho
lecadence of thoir power and tho
immiuonco of their punishment
that, now tho truth is known, tho
Hawaiian Legislature promibos to
bring these tax-dodgers up with a

lature in this regard, and in over
throwing tho rule of tho Bugnr
oligarchy, will dopoud very much
besides n needful iucreuso of tho
island revenue. Many Americans,
otherwise well disposed toward

the wisdom of vesting tho rights

common citizen to "poor white

It cannot bo transplanted to

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.
