WHAT IT ENDORSES.
(IlnniUanStar, Oct, 14 )
The Ililo Tribune should bo
supplied with an editorial halanco
wheel or safety valve for uso in
commenting upon Governmental
policy and inovotnont. In the
current isBno tho papoi is filled on
tho brains page with tho sheerest
onsonBO and tho baldest insult.
It has couceived tho notion that
there xistB in tho highest official
ciivh'8 a conspiracy to cheat Ililo
of tho improvements for which
money was voted by tho Legisla
ture. Of courso this idea iB simp
ly too absurd to bo considered for
iui instant with any seriousness.
Tho Tribune- should readjust it
self so as to be amenable to
vtjiwnu and it must loam sooner
or lator that its present unworthy
metliotlR cannot accomplish any
good. It is noticed that The
Tribune is urging a Board of
Trade, in lieu of the Vitiligo Im
provement Association suggested
by tho Star. Any uiunn will

Iho Ililo Tribune's pronounced
protest against grinding wages of
roml laborers to tho finest possiblo
point aud forcing the nativo Pla

luguese colonists iuto a struggle
with tho predatory Asiatics. This
policy is a direct blow at the neck
of the bulk of tho citizenship of
iho Islands. Reduce tho Portu

According to the foregoing ex

uys the latest issue of the Tri
Imno is "filled on tho brains
pagf." As a loading article and
soveral editorial paragraphs iu tho
Tribuno v.oro devoted to uttering
.tho "pronounced protest" that the
Star endorses, the denouncing by
the Bftiuo paper of tho entire edi

as "lh-3 sheerest nousouso and tho

.weeping and a triflo inconsistent.
American interests iu Samoa
liftvo been largely increased by
the outcome of a lawsuit for the
possesion of a lnrgo amount of
land. It is to bo hoped that tho
United States will now pay some
lieed to tho Satnoan outcry for
more satisfactory government than
the Berlin compact has afforded.
By tho rumored docision of the
Atnoriuiui Venezuelan Commis
sion in favor of Venezuela, tho
question at issue will come sharp

us United States again. Of course
the British jingoes will bo oppos
ed to accepting the arbitrament of
tho United States as a finality.

Chief Justice Ido of Samoa on
September 29 rendered a decision
on tho important lnnd caso of
Wollmau, Neylan and Ilobbs, as
trustees, agaiust C. A. Harris,
National Bank of New Zealand
nnd others, defendants. Tho do
cision occupies live columns of
close print in tho Samoa Times,
nnd concludes by decreeing as fol
lows: "First. If the defendants shnll
pay to tho Clerk of this Court for
tho boneQt of tho plaintiffs tho
sum of $60,582.0'! on or beforo the
7th day of November 1890, then
the said lands shall belong to tho
said defendants, and grants shnlL.
bo issued to them for tho snmo,
free from nil oquity or claim on
tho part of tho plaintiffs or of any
porson claiming undor or through
"Second If the defendants
shall fail to make the payment
abovo stated on or beforo tho date
limited for such pnymont, then
tho said lands shall belong to tho
plaintiffs ns trustees, and grants
for tho sumo shall be issued to
them, froo from nil equity or
claim on tho part of tho defend
ants or nny porsou claiming un
der or through them.
"Third That no costs of suit
bo taxed in favor of oithor party."
Tho Samoa Times devotes a
leader to tho subject, saying:
" Now that the Polynesian land
litigation has terminated, and the
lauds aro practically tho proporty
of MesBrs. Wollraan, Noylnn and
Ilobbs of California, tho American
iuterests lmvo become much more
Btibstantial than formerly, aud, iu
consoqnouco, more deserving of
tho BoriouB consideration of tho
llnited States Govornment."
Tho TimoB anticipates renowod
naval attention from tho United
States, iuoluding a revival of "pub
lic interest iu tho direction of
harbor -works in Pngopago con
templated long since, but dying
an ignominious death from inani
tion." It also says:
"The decision to which wo refer
brings tho Amorican interest on a
level with tho British interests, or
nearly so; a fact that may possib
ly have a political influence ovor
our future, of which wo have but
littlo conception nt the present
tirno. Tho fact is not to bo dis
guised nlso that from 1890 tp tho
preBont yoar of graco Amorican
politicians havo left us severely
alono oxcopt, once or twice, as a
party cry to secure somo trivial
ond thus proving a stumbling
block to our progress. Had Am
erica maintained hor primary ntli
tudo towards ub, John Bull would
not havo been permitted to pigeon
hole Sanioan utruirs in the manner
that ho has done."
T. B. Ousnak Smith, British
consul nnd deputy commissioner,
issues a notice warning British
subjects against supplying arms,
ammunition, explosives, otc, to a
Siunonn subject or othor Pacific
Islander resident in Samoa. Even
tho giving of orders to traders or
othor porsons to supply Samoaus
with powder nnd shot for shooting
pigeons or for nuy othor purposo
is nu olFonco under tho Act. Tho
penalty is imprisonment not ex
ceeding six months or a fino not

BICYCLE TRADE IN ,
It is a mistake to suppose
for a moment that the Hawaii

ing out of the business of
selling bicycles. Not much.
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 j
some of our competitors would t
like to see us let go of Th e
TRIBUNE agency, for' instance, j
but we don't intend to do it.

round wheel in the market and
we are selling them right along.
They are good serviceable
wheels and don't cost their

of extras for the Tribune and
other wheels we handle, and
shall continue to do so.
