It is told by a Japanese paper
that tho Into Empress Dowager
was vaccinated with some reluct
anco on the 30th ult, on the advico
of her medical attendants on ao
count of her projected journey to
Kyoto as small pox is prevalent
in some parts of the country. The

It is only lately that tho world
was informed that Edison's gon
ius mndo it possiblo to throw an
oxact picture of moviug scenes
upon a screen. Honolulu people
saw it done last night. Thoy saw
tho Empire State express train
rolling mto tho depot at Albany,
N. Y., mon walking on the plat
form, tho crossing bars riso to al
low vehicles to pass, and a hack
taking the opportunity to cross
the track. Then tliero waa tho
immonse railroad ferry boat "Chi
cago" (looking at New York, with
tugboats rushing past, tho foam
from propel I era and smoko from
funnols being clearly dofinod.
The great MoKinley election cam
paign parade in Now York, a bull
fight in Spain and a run of the
firo brigade in New York were
other living scenes displayed as
real as life. It was lifo taken by
tho snapshotsof photography, and
reproduced by oleotrio mechanism.

span of majestic horses attached
to the ongino looked, soemingly,
right over the heads of Silva's or

and switched thoir tails, while tho
hose sent jots nnd sprays against
tho burning building.
It was tho most wonderful
thing ever seen in Honolulu.
Editor Bulletin: Iu tho mat
ter of tho now Central Firo
Station, would it not have been in
kooping with wisdom and pru
dence if the Cabinot Ministers
had more fully considered tho
pros and cons boforo placing on
record the awarding of a contrnot
whioh gives $1945 more to a con
tractor whoso own bid is consider
ably larger than four othor con
tractors who hava as good a
record as any contractors in this
city. Tho S1945 which tho
taxpayers will bavo to pay
is not givon for a bettor quality of
work to be done in stone, brioks,
carpentering, paiutiug, plastering,
or plumbing; this large sum of
mouoy is given for tho stono as it
now lies in tho quarry.
Now would it not bavo been
more advantageous to tho tax
payers if tho Ministers had select
ed the stone from the government
quarry and saved (ho sum of
$1945 by so doing, thon all this
absurd talk about a "bolter quality
of .tone" would never bave boon
beard. Tho amount of stono re
quired from nny quarry to build
tho new Contral Fire Station is a
pieco25 feot long, 25 foot wido and
25 feet deep, and it ia for this
pieco that the tax-payera have to
pay 81945, a piece of stono whioh
can bo found in many quarries
within a milo or two from tho Bite
of the Firo Station and whioh would
cost in its native stato less than
ono hundred dollars.
