Thoro is a measure ponding in
Mm TiPniRlntiirn tn nnnnrn for till)
public tho perpolunl onjoyraont of.
Knpiolnni Pnrk ns n plnco of ro
crention. It is tho outcome of a
proposition made to tho Gov
ernment by AYilliam G. Ir
win, who is in n position to
mnko n boltor fiuiiucinl doiil
for hiniHolf in tho mutter. Mr.
Irwin owns in foo simple u solid
and symmetrical truct of tho park
nren, extending from tho shoro
sido nvonuo through one ond of
tho rnco track ground to a lino
taking in tho lato Dr. Trousseau's
ostrich farm. This tract is under
loaso to the Knpiolnni Park
Association for an unexpired term
of eight years. IIo has also two
sections of lots on tho beach front
age, on one of which his residence
stands, leased from tho lato Crown
Laud Commissioners with twenty
fivo years p tho loaso unexpired.
These leased lots aro ninetoon in
number and contain an aggregato
nroa of about thirteen acres. In
return for a deed in foo simple of
tho loaned lots held by him, Mr.
Irwin offers to convoy to tho Gov
ernment in foo simple,
for tho uso of a public
park, nil of tho laud now leased
by him to tho Knpiolnni Pnrk
Associntion. This land is worth
from S15.000 to 20,000, according
to tho freo statements of real
estate experts. The lands ho
asks for in barter do not, by a
great deal, monopolize tho beach,
it seoms on tho whota to bo tho
opportunity of a barpnin to tho
Government ou behalf of tho
public. If tho areu offered by Mr.
Irwin should bo withhold from
tho park when its loaso expires,
in eight yours hence, the present
symmetrical form of tho park with
its artistically laid out avenues
would bo destroyed. This
would bo nothing less
than a public calamity.
Somo cities in othor countries
Lavo paid enormous sums of
mouuy to secure ground for pub
lic parks. Mr. Irwin's propositi
does not iuvolvo tho expenditure
of any money front tho public
treasury, or tho loss of an inch of
ground on which tho feet of tho
public may now tread without
trospass. Tho gentlontan making
the offor has always evinced a
.high degreo of public spirit re
garding tho conservation of im
provements to Knpiolani Park, on
many occasions oxpondiug his
own moaus for this purpoao when
the lack of legislative appropria
tions would otherwise have led to
deterioration. It is hard to
soe how tho public interests
in the park can bo permanently
secured moronavantngeously tlian
by tho adoption of Mr. Irwin's
scheme. It would bo a national
frimo to allow tho pnrk as now
luid.out to bo mutilated. It would
also bo tho extromo of folly to
trust that nflor tho lapse of eight
years nn equally favorable ar
jnngemont to that now proposod
would bo nvailablo for having tho
entire plot with all its improve
ments presorved forever to tho
people as a place of wholesomo
Elsewhere in this issue will bo
found tho major part of an article
on Japaneso commercial advance
ment from an English trade
jjttpor. Somo time ago, in dis
cussing this subject of worldwide
. interest, tho Bulletin predicted
that ono of tho early checks to
Japaneso competition with other
manufacturing countries would
come from within Japan hersolf.
It would come in tho form of a
Tiso in tho prices of both
products and labor in Jupan
attending tho immonso expansion
of her manufacturing industries.
This, it would appear, has already
arrived and in larger proportions
than at this distance might have
boen anticipated bo soon. In tho
Tory number of tho periodical
containing tho special article in
question thoro nppoars tho follow
ing editorial pnrngraph:
Tho nativo Japanese press nn
uouueos that an extraordinary riso
of prices has lately taken placo
in Jannn. and that tho movomout
does not yet soom to havo lost its
upward tondoncy. Tho riso bus
especially nffoctod articles of
luxury. In tho caso of somo of
these, nmong which may 'bo men
tioned silk and cotton articles, tho
prices havo risen a8 much as 30
and 40 per cent, in comparison
with those of 1893. Itico, barley,
salt, sugar, coal, wood, and motal
articles aro also to bo found in a
list of somo twenty-two differont
kinds affected by tho upward
movomout. It is noticeable also
that tho riso in prices has boon
accompanied by a considerable
increase in tho rate of wages, con
sequent on tho depnrturo of a
largo number of Japanese artisans
ond workmen for Formosa and
With such n Bidden jump in
tho air of tho prices of Japanese
manufactures, tho Hooding of this
country with Japaneso goods, in
competition with manufactures
from tho United States to the
jeopardy of tho reciprocity treaty,
may bo considered as much less
imminent than it Boomed a short
Electricity with all its rapid
advances within tho past twonty
years can scarcoly bo claimed to
mark tho ending of tho contury
more than tho enormous progress
made by tho bicycle as a means of
passengor locomotion. About ten
yoars ago bicycles with ono wheel
sovoral diameters larger than tho
other wore in use, but principally
for recreation and athletic com
petition by boys and young men.
tiomowhat later tho safety bicycle
was introduced and camo into po
pular favor rapidly as a utilita
rian means of rapid transit in
towns. When, however, tho fair
sex took to tho wheol and that
with scarcoly a whimper of protest
from Mrs. Grundy a distinct
impetus was given to tho bioyclo
tratlic. Many millions are now
invested in tho manufacture of tho
wheol in tho United States, and
tho values of patent rights hi
separate parts of machines aro
also reckoned by millions. Ame
rican wheol manufacturing statis
tics aro not before us, but a lato
English trade periodical gives
some figures of tho business in
the United Kingdom. They soem
almost fabulous. Ono syudicnto,
that was reported to havo already
bought the rights to tho Clincher
pnoumatic tire, has mado a bid of
lifteon million dollars for tho
Dunlop tire, and proposes to buy
up all othor compoting tires in tho
markot. Board of Trndo returns
show that tho export of bicycles
front tho United Kingdom
amounts to tho value of upward
of ten million dollars a year.
THE EXPLODING STAR.
Mr. Lansing, a member of the
Board of Health, felt called upon
to rebuke tho Star for its attack
on that body. Ho took tho manly
course of writing to tho paper
that gavo tho offense, instoad of to
another paper as tho practico of
Bomo is in similar cases. His let
ter was calm, courteous and re
plete with reasons for its opinions,
but Mr. Lansing had tho temerity,
in its conclusion, to suggost that
tho Star was degenerating in tone
to a degree that invited tho atten
tion of its owners. It appears
that Mr. Lansine lias some hnan-
jrial interest in tho papqr himself.
tiio atar in publishing the letter,
which it was not obliged to do,
took occasion to abuso Mr. Lansing
with such unbridled ill-temper
that tho attack must causo more
pain to the friends of tho nsBailant
than to those of tho assailed. An
insulting headline in largo typo
is also put over Mr. Lansing's
letter. The entire performance
is ovidontly intended as a master
piece in tho art of "roasting," but
wo mistako the community if tho
roastor is not already squirming
on his own gridiron.

1 Sugar planters know more
I ways of getting rich than
holding down their taxes. As
was stated to the writer by an
intelligent observer the other
day: " it takes as much care
and vigilance to run a planta
tion and mill as to run an
ocean steamship. Eveiy little
detail, every screwhead and
bolt, has to be inspected to
see that nothing goes wrong."
I In the matter of saving waste
I and expenses, which is half the
battle for profits, the planters
I of these islands have made an
I enviable record.
The care of their live stock
makes no small amount of the
expenses of plantations, and
anything saved here increases
the profits as well as a gain in
the .percentage of extraction of
sugar from the cane. In the
cut above given you have a
view of a 12-foot geared Aer
motor we have put up at.
