MISS KATE FIELD.
The sudden and unexpected
hows of tho death of Miss Kato
Piold was recoived by the commu
nity with genuine sorrow and re
gret. During her stay here she
Lad so much idontiiicd herself
with us and becomo so gouorally
voll-known in a social way that
sho will bo missed us if sho had
Leon ono of tho old residents. Tho
history of tho- talented journalist,
actre&s, singer, lecturer and writer
is so well known as to become al
most tiresome in its repetition.
First an actress, then a woman's
suffrage lecturer, sho obtained a
national reputation by exposing
tho doctrines of Mormonism, liv
ing for a timo among them for tho
purpose of getting tho inside
fncts connected with tho perni
cious practices connected with
polygamy. To her efforts in
this direction is duo much
of tho legislation that lies
put an end to tho practice of
polygamy in tho United States.
Hor ambition and faith in her
own talonts led her to start a
newspaper of hor own which sho
dubbed "Kato Fiold's "Washing
toman." Tho paper was not a
success, unci after sinking a for
iuuo in it and working herself al
most to death sho was com polled
to discontinue its publication.
This was about a year ngo. Tired,
voru-out and financially ruined
alto was not discouraged, but nn-
uounced her intention, of starting
tho paper again as soon as sho
could accumulate enough from
writing and lecturing, which sho
intended to resume as soon as her
health permitted. It wur at this
juncture that Mr. Kohlsuat, tho
proprietor of tho Chicago Timos
Horald, offered to send hor to
Hawaii as special correspondent of
that poper.Sho was to havo ubsoluto
freedom to write what sho pleased
and as much as she pleased about
tho Islands and in tho meantime
to study tho annexation problom.
How well Bho performed hor
work is known to all. Although
occasionally wrong in somo of hor
idoas, which had really become
fads, hor writings on Hawaii havo
shown an ovidont dosiro to get at
tho bottom facts and publish tho
truth only. Those who wore
fortunate in her acquaintance, of
whom tho writor was ono, will
testify that she hnd on almost
marvelous powor of absorbing in
formation on ovory subject, and
hor short, shnrp, frequent and in
cisive questions quickly drew out
of hor informants ovorythiug thoy
know of tho subject under dis
cussion. Sho would havo made
a fortune as n cross-ox-nminor
had she choson to study
law. What hor plans with rogard
to Hawaii woro no ono knows, but
from tho mass of information sho
was gathoring thoy doubtless in
cluded tho publication of a book.
Jler lotters havo boon of inestim
able value to Hawaii ns an adver
tisement alone, while her signa
ture at tho bottom of them has
caused duo weight to bo given to
their coutonts by those who woro
seeking tho truth about Hawaii.
By tho death of Kato Field Ha
waii and tho Ilawaiians havo lost
a sincoro friond and well wisher,
nnd tho United States one of its
most accomplished wora-iii.
THE BLACK PLAGUE.
" According to an Oriontal pa
per, "says a Tacoma dispatch of
April 30, " it has dovoloped that
tho Gaelic, bound for San Fran
cisco, was responsible for intro
ducing tho black plague into Yo
kohama." Reference is mado, as
seen by tho particulars given in
tho dispatch, to tho Chinese pas
uougor loft at Yokohama and who
died thoro, warning of which was
cabled by Mr. Irwin, Hawaiian
chargo 'daffaires at Tokio, to this
Government ip anticipation of
tho Gaelic's arrival at Honolulu.
It is also roported that a caso
occurred on tho Uhittagong,which
arrived at Tacoma a fow days bo
foro tho dato of this dispatch.
Thoro is information tho same
way that tho disease has spread
rapidly from eabt to west through
out tho Orient. No medicine
that is known can stay it. Dr.W.F.
Arnold, U. S. N., who was sent to
Chiua by tho United States Gov
ernment to study tho black plnguo,
beliovos that tho disordor will
spread still further. Being thus
forwurnod by thoso facts it is in
tho highest decree incumbont up
on this Government to bo fore
armed against tho admission of
tlio dread postilenco horo. Thoro
was a liability, for all wo know,
that tho Gaelic should have laud
ed a caso of tho disease horo in
stead of, or in addition to, that at
Yokohama. For years before tho
epidomic of choloia struck this
port last year, wo gave occasional
warnings of dangor regarding it.
It is to be hoped that, with regard
to the black plague, our authori
ties will not bo caught napping.
According to our representative
now on a visit to Hawaii, thoro is
much dissatisfaction among coll'eo
planters, regarding tho reserva
tion of a deep forest bolt along
tho Volcano road. It is said that
tho rulo was mado at tho instance
of a few faddists. Tho coffeo
growers of Hawaii aro a valuablo
class and anything roasonablo
that thoy havo to submit to tho
Government ought to receive tho
best consideration. Thoro does
soom to bo au absurdity in com
pelling such a valuablo and not
unornamontal growth like coil'eo
to take second placo to a rugged
and unproductive forest.

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
j business consisting in dealing
with men's wheels, quite the
contrary is true. Dealeis 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
put or staying at home. In
fact we have all sorts of knives
suitable for all sorts and con
ditions of people.

Tho report of three physi

Tho filter has not been

is called the Success. Ours is
just as good without a name
