In the Seimto tho other day the
now Qunrantiuo Law was intro
ducoil at half past ouo on tho af
ternoon of ouo day and passed on
tho third reading the following
morning at half past ton. This is
hasty legislation with n vengeance,
and it was simply impossible for
tho members to give tho bill that
conaidointion which itb import
ance demanded. The pxcubo giv
en for rushing tho bill
through was that it was almost
identical with tho United States
quarantiuo law. That may be
true, but timo was not even taken
to couaidei whilher lh3 conditions
under which tho bill was passed
in tho United States woro identi
cal with thoso obtaining hero. But
tho bill is passed and thoro is no
uso in crying ovor spilled milk.
It is permissible, howovor, to pro
test against such unduo hasto in
It is apparent that attempts
will be mado to rush bills
through in thoso tho closing days
of tho session. Indeed tho Exe
cutive has already commenced to
hurry the House of Represonta
lives into considoriug bills which
thoy havo not yet reached. 13ut
that bod does not seom to bo
much worried in tho mattor and
pursuos tho ovon tonor of
its way regardless of thp
hints of tho Executive. Even
the statement of Minister
Cooper thta morning flint the Ex
ecutive did not intend to grant tho
Legislature tho oxtra thirty days
allowed by tho Constitution did
not ppein to affect its members.
Nor should it, for as long as tho
House holdR back tho main appro
priation, liconso and other impor
tant bills it can forco tho Execu
tive to givo them un extra thirty
days to finish up in, especially as
the claim is mado that if the
Executivo had boon ready
with its reports and bills in the
early portion of tho session as tho
law provides thoro would havo
been no necessity for tho extra
thirty days. Let us havo no more
hasty legislation that we may live
to repent in sack-cloth and ashes
for tho next two years or longor.
In tho coming Republican Na
tional Convention which meets in
St. Louis on Juno 1G, it is intend
ed to connect the various Stato
delegations with tho speaker's
desk by telephone, so that tho
chairman may know tho uamo of
every man who is recognized, and
thus bo able to announce his uamo
to tho convention. Tho detail of
the plan proposed does not differ
from tho systora of room-to-room
telephone in vogue in tho larger
hotels. Thoro will bo a coutral
oQico back of tho speakor's stand,
and from thoro an operator will
connect tho various delegations
with tho chairman or with each
other, as tho enso may bo. The

Honolulu, May 1G, 189G.
Editoii Bulletin Allow mo
to call tho attoution of tho public
through tho columns of your val
uable paper, to tho manner in
which wo Asiatics aro being treat
ed by tho Custom House officials.
The policy of the Government, if
I am correct, is to treat as much
as possible, every ono alike, irro
gards to color or race. So far, so
good. I am afraid it has been so
in tiio manor oi ouiwnra appear
ance only. It puts me in mind of
tho story of tho wolf dressed in an
Formerly, thcro woro no res
trictions iu regard to our going
on board a Bteamer to bid our
countrymen "good - bye," otc.
Things havo chauged, however,
and irom sometime ago, when a
steamer was bound for China and
Jnpnu, the gnt-'s were closed and
Asiatics were not allowed to go in
oxcopt when thoy had permits
from tho Custom House. These
woro then freely givon to thoso
who applied, but as timo rolled
on, thoy becamo difficult to pro
cure Only thoso who had busi
ness to transact, otc, had tho priv
ilege of obtaining them.
iridoy morning of April 24th,
when tho Rio Janeiro was booked
to sail at 10 o'clock, a few as usual
applied for permits. To their sur
priso nono was givon. When
asked tho reason, tho answor was
that too much bribery had boon
going on latoly. Even prominent
morchants woro barred out.
How can thoro bo any bribery,
if tho officials rofuso to nccopt any
such offers? If they aro not
trustworthy, why not employ thoso
that aro? If there aro any dis
honest merchants, why not got tho
"law" after them. Someone asked
why other nationalities wero al
lowed froo access. Tho reply was
that it was not so. Only peoplo
on business woro nllowed to outer.
In order to ascertain this, tho
enquirer wont to the gate and saw
men, women and children going
in and out at their own sweet
will. The majority of thorn wero
mordly sightseers. "Wo who had
friends, nay, parents, brothors
and sisters on board woro forced
to keep away.
Suppose for instance there had
been somo bribery at tho Oceanic
dock when tho Australia was in
port. Do you think tho Custom
authorities would close tho gates
on tho day of sailing of that
popular liner and not allow any
ono in except on business? Why,
a riot would onsuo right then and
thoro. What is tho difference with
us? Havo we not tho sumo feel
ing? Is not tho Australia to tho
wliito pooplo ns tho China steamer
is to us?
It seems that tho loncer wo on-
duro and keep quiet, tho more wo
aro being oppressod and ill-treated.
It is truo that through tho
fault of somo of ub, that strict
measures woro adopted. But is it
because a few had been dishonest
that all of us must suffer the con
sequences and bo treated alike? "
I lully realize that to handle
suck a big lot of peoplo at once is
no easy task, but nro thero not
better methods that tho present?
Tho olhcials, no doubt, havo tho
right to use what measures they
doom advisablo, but I think thoy
aro using too extreme and bar-v
If this was a heathen country,
it would bo useless to say any
thing, but siuco 1 consider this to
bo fully civilized, with tho major
ity of its inhabitants Christians,
I think that Christian methods
ought to bo employed. Thoro is
a talk of abrogating tho prosont
passport law, claiming it to bo
barbarous and that no other en
lightened nations uso it. Tho
above luw is nowhere compared to
tho barbarous measures we aro
being subjected to. We do not
propose to run tho governmont,
nor do wo wish to interfere in
any way. All wo want is"Justico",
that is, to accord us full civil
rights as defined in its Constitu

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, I
direct from the factory, no back j
numbers, and have all the latest
We have also a number of
Tribune racers and gent's road- '
sters, and a number of "Zim- j
my" wheels. This is an en-1
tirely new machine, named
after the great rider, Zimmer
mann, and we shall be pleased .
to explain its merits to in-'
tending purchasers. J
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.
