It is said that Sir John

would eventually ubsoib tho Fiji

"The real object of tho movement
is probably political, and when
tho German companies in Samoa
nnd Tonga are bought out, all ob
struction to tho annexation of
these groups of islands by tho
British Government will bo re
moved, and a long wished for do

FEW WORDS ON BICY
CLES AND CUTLERY.
In a Coast newspaper de
voted to the bicycle business
wo 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.
