Hongkong business men havo
' thrown tboir woigbt iuto tbo Bealo
in favor of a Pacific cablo. In
thoir Clmmbor of Coramorco thoy
havo plodgod assistance to any
company that will bring about
tbo boon. Thoro is nothing in
nil modern progross that 1ms
dragged so heavily as the pro
joct of laying a cable
across tbo Pacific. Just think of
it. For thirty long years thoro
has been uninterrupted tolegra
'liliic Communication across the
Atlantic. Thoro aro now cables
beyond koopiug couut of in that
ocimii. South Amorica is in in
fitanl conversational relations with
Europe. Even littlo Bermuda has
a cablo running to it, connected
with transatlantic cables. It is
no wonder that our now Govern
ment of Hawaii mado a depporato
but, it is to bo feared, futilo at
tempt to force the problem to a
happy issuo. Tho prospects of
having a cable indeed appear
rnoro romoto than ever. Colonel
Spalding with his exclusive chart
er would appear to have retired
into hibernation in Paris. Sir
Audlcy Coote, for long tho indo
faligftblo promoter of tho cablo
iilen, is supposed to be away look
ing for railway concessions in
China and Japan. According to
(report, tho British cablo scheme,
from which there was a littlo hopo
lately, is be'-et with as miu'li un
certainty as Aunenian emanci
pation. Not a pledgo to promote
the work is heard from any
party in tho national election
enmpnign in the United Stales.
Everything looks as if a balloon
express to Sau Francisco is going
to antedate cable connection with
JOHN'S EaCA. E.
A good story conies by way of
Japan, about tho oscapo of a Chi
naman from slaughter by tho
Matabole. John had ventured far
into tho interior looking for a job
of washing either auriferous sand
or clothes. Seeing tho doad bod
ies of butchered whites horo and
there by tho wayside, ho became
jlorribly frightened and decided to
put back for a settlement. Ho
had scarcely turned round when a
Rwnnn of natives descrying him
boio down at him with savngo
yells. As tho Afiicans camo near
tho Asiatic, however, they wore
given pauso by his outlandish np
pearauco. Thoy had never seen
anybody wearing a queue, nnd
tho cuo thoy took was that this
creature was a witch-god of the
whitos. It was only with super
Gtitious awe, theroforo, that some
of them camo close enough to
touch him. As if they feared that
tho strange being might slay thom
with a inaloCc glanco, tho savages
sent tho barbarian on his way re
joicing and ho soon fell in with a
band of Caucasian fugitives. Ono
Bwailow does not make a summer,
.but, it is safo to say, this appari
tion of u Chinaman in the golden
TOgion of Africa will mean tho
occasion for considerable sandlot
agitation thoro boforo Matabolo
bolligoroncy has boon long sup
Edward Atkinson's relation of a
rumor that Amorican standard
dollars were to bo manufactured
perhaps nro boing manufactured
now in China iB rather startling
no mattor which side is going to
,wmtho battle over silver in tho
United States. It perhaps comes
nearer homo to Hawaii than oven
tho issuo of tho presidential con
test, for a dollar factory in China
could oasily find ways of flooding
these islands with silvor currency.
About tho only argumont tho
morning paper can use, outside of
bald assertion, when it tackles an
o'pon discussion, is that tho
opinions it does not liko emanate
from tho opposition. Yet when
tho same papor is referred to as a
Government organ, it denies the
Boft impeachment as if it were
ashamed of tho title.
A University men's society is
tho latest now organization to bo
advocated for Honolulu. This
will probably bo followed by a
society of graduates of tho littlo
red or gray schoolhouso. A man's
a man for a' that, in oithor case,
just to tho extent that ho reflects
credit on his precoptors.
Thero is a rumor afloat that
there was insurauco on the bark
Gainsborough when she was
stranded on Diamond Head.
Should this provo truo tho master
will bo likely to run up against a
court of inquiry somowhoro.
For a second time in about two
weeks tho Hawaiian people aro
called to pay the last tributo of
respect to a public man of their
race in whom they had confidence
They don't seem to liko Li
Hung Chang out near where ho

elsewhere quoted from a Yokoha
m i paper.
The stability of tho Kilohana
Art League proves that thero aro

mental or physical, are always as
good as professionals until thoy

There was a largo attendance at
tho funeral of tho late Miss Lylo
yesterday afternoon, ltev. D. P.

saug in deep sympathy tho hymn,
"Lead kindly light," and another,
while Miss Lishman beautifully
sang two solos, in response to tho
dying request of hor friend. Mrs.
Isabella Cioighton accompauied
tho singing on tho piano. Tho
hymns as well as tho scrip
tures had beon selected by Miss
Lylo several days beforo her
death. Sho had also named the
nail bearors, they boing tho fol
lowing young men: Henry Giles,
Olaf Soronson, D. F. Thrum, Goo.
Augus, Ed. Mossman and Nor
man Halstead. Being all about
of a size and an age, they made
an impressive appearance march
ing besido tho hearso carrying
wreaths on their arms. Tho lino
of carriages extended tho greater
part of tho quarter of a mile from
the house to Makiki cemotery, aud
about fifty people proceeded over
tho hillsido on foot to tho place.
Among an array of flowers placed
upon and besido the grave, thero

BICYCLE TRADE IN
It is a mistake to suppose

We know a good thing when
we have it and our bicycle
trade has been and is now a
good thing. We have no doubt
some of our competitors would
like to see us let go of Th e
Tribune agency, for instance,
but we don't intend to do it.
The Tribune is the best all
round wheel in the market and
we are selling them right along.
They are good' serviceable
wheels and don't cost their

least money. We have a large
stock on hand at prices to suit

one of the highest priced lamps
than to be hauled up in the

the shoe business. Come and

known "Zimmy" Wheels left.
We want to close these out too,
so as to devote our whole
