THE NINETY DAYS.
Minitnr Cooper throw a littlo
bombsholl nraoiig tbo sedato llop-
rowtitntm. vIkmi bo gave tho
otlicinl opinion tlmt tho constitu
tional limit of ninety days to tho
session included idle days oxcopt
ing SuudnvH and legal holidny.
I this interpretation is correct
the chuiso in question would seom
to be alwurdity its-elf, although a
ruferonco to the discussion oE the
point in tho ConHtitutioniil Con
vention does not indicate tlmt tho
intent disagrees with the presont
construction. Originally tho
clause inndo the length of sessio'n
"ninety working daj'B," which
phrase by itself would hardly bear
tho interpretation now placed up
on tho substituted phrase, "ninety
days, excluding Sundays and holi
days." But when it is found that
tin amendment had been moved
to limit tho session to sixty days,
it would seom that tho finally
adopted phrasoology was a com
promise between tho advocutes of
ninety days and sixty days, which
was intouded to compel tho Legis
lature to get through its work in
ninety days, "excluding" only
"Sundays and holidays." There
fore, on this viow of tho
case, tho clause in ques
tion is to bo attributed to
rash legislation by tho constitu
tional convention. It may bo truo
that ninety days ought to bo sufli
cient for getting through with all
tho legislation this country re
quires in two years. Yot if all tho
weighty matters duo to como from
tho hands of commissions, promis
ed by the Executive nnd naturally
to bo expected from tho activo and
potent minds of members of both
branches, had been fully and ef
fectively dealt with at tho presont
session, ninety days would bo
all too brief for tho purpose.
Besides, there aro other grave
eventualities possiblo that only
tho blindness of moles could have
ignored. Supposing, for ouo
thing, that tho Legislature had to
adjourn for thirty days on uccount
of insurrection or postilonco
either of which might havo boon
as apt to como in 189G as in 1895
tho session's limit would have
been shorn of ono-third of its
length without recourse. Per
haps there is a chanco of common
sense being judicially read into
tho clause as it stands', aud to as
certain if such is tho caso a test
ought to bo forced by tho Legis
lature. INTER-ISLAND PARCELS.
Hawaii has parcels post ar
rangements with many other
countries, but vory inefficient ar
rangements for internal parcels
post service. Lately a country
postmaster Bhowcd tho writor a
parcel containing a valuable en
closure, marked in big print,
"Don't crush," but it had been re
ceived in a condition suggesting
thnt it had gone through a nino
rollor mill. By tho samo mail
Bomo parcels of seeds from tho
JJureau of Agriculturo camo to
that particular oflico, with tho
coverings so ruptured that
tho precious seeds wero strewn
over tho floor when tho
parcols woro takon out of tho sack.
The Postmaster General points
ivith admiration to tho strong
wicker baskets in which tho Cana
dian postal parcels come, aud it
would bo a good movo to have
similar means of conveyance
for tho intor-island parcels
service. In baskets packages
would not bo ground to pieces
upon each other as in sacks. It
was announced somo time ngo that
wo woro to have an improved in
ternal pnrcolB post. Lot us havo
it without delay.

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 bicvele 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, Zimnier
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.

All havo handsotno gem set

heretofore imported, and wo

our customers. Tho prices ai'e
not as high as one would ima
gine for such high grade goods;
ranging from 550.00 up.
Our small oxidised chate
laine watch at $G.OO must also
not be overlooked. For a watch
costing almost nothing; run
ning well, and rich looking,
this cannot be equaled by any
thing wo have seen.

magnetic influences; which in
this age of electricity is a point
of incalculable value. No mat
ter what grade of watch you

stock to pick it from; because
no other stock is half as large,
no other stock contains the ex
clusive patterns, and no other
