HERE'S FOR MAKIKI.
In tho latest uumbor of tho Bri
tish Trodo ftoiow to bond thero
is o tifiort nccoiiut of an experi
mental run matlo with ouo of thu
now oninibiiBOS of tho Loudon
Electric Omnibus Company, Lim
ited, which it appears was of a
very satisfactory charactor. It is
related that the result was much
admired, as tho oranibuB ran over
macadam, wood, or tho rough sur
face of tho Thames Embankment.
TJiuro worotwonty-livo passougors
on tho 'bus. Tho great novelty of
construction consists in tho sys
tem by which the whole weight of
thu body of tho vehicle and the
electiic accumulator float on nn
air bed at a very low pressure,
which perfectly absorbs vibration.
The wheels are ery small and
broad, and the driver, who stands
in front, has oasyaud complete
control of every inovomout ho do
Bires to make, starting on an in
cline, stopping or turning. An
other account jn a newspaper says
the trial was mado to test tho
capabilities of tho vehicle for
traoliugon muddy ground, also
to pull up in a fow yards in caso
of emergency. "The trial was
purposely mado on account of the
foggy weather, aud tho vehicle,
when traveliug at tho rate of
eight miles an hour, easily came
to a standstill when getting in
close quarters to a cab which had
almost been hidden from view in
the fog until tho omnibus was
within a few yards of it. The
'bus wab afterward taken into
tho City and back to Whitehall,
maintaining a speed of between
S hikI 8 miles an hour without
nuy difficulty." A lino of electric
omnibuses would seem to bo just
what is wanted for communica
tion between the business part of
Honolulu and tho now residence
quaitors, such as tho Makiki
plains, rornoto from tiamcar lines.
Horseless carrioges may indeed
be evpectcd before long to revo
lution i.p transit in towns every -wheio.
Ihoy need uo pormanout
way tho main oxpenso of all
sorts of railcar lines other than
tho ordinary highways. Hono
lulu had soemed to bo unfortunate
in adopting horso cars just as tho
rest of tho world was on tho ovo
of the electric car era. But if
carriages requiring no cutting up
of tho streots with rails, no pre
emption of tho right of way with
ponderous cars, no animal power,
are going to fill tho bill, then
Honolulu may indeed shortly
baro reason to bo thankful that
its streets aro not more occupied
than thoy aro with tho cumber
some plaut of tramways holding
vested rights into the lives of tho
uoxt generation. Cannot somo of
our eutorprising business men
put their heads together and see if
a suburban electric omnibus lino
cannot be made an early realiza
tion ? It would immensely en
hance the comfort of dwollors in
our beautiful suburbs, and make
the value of property therein go
wp with a bound.
A STORMY PETREL.
An itom in tho Sydney Daily
Telegraph says: "Tho ltov. "W.

horo meutioued was a veritable
storm center of politico religious
troublo in Tonga. A shot from

Thurston ultimately had the
clerical politician deported from
tho island. Tho Wesleyau church
iu the Colonies was agitated by a
controversy over the conduct of
this "stormy petrol" of Tonga.
Now it appears he has flown back
to his old haunt, since tho potent
vicegerent of tho Western Puciiic

"Freo Church" politics there.

This is what ono of tho Hawaii
an Colleuo boyswiites to his fath
or reparaiup tho best wheel to buy
for his sister: "1 hold tho ltaiab
ler second to none iu the country
(tho U. S.), aud i anyone can
show a wheel which has traveled
08 many miles as niino lins with
as little expense ns mino I would
very much liko to seo it. Bo
sides clumping tho gear from Gi
to 70 nnd tho saddle to ono of later
pattern my entire expense for tho
wheel has been tifty cents. That
I think is a pretty good record,
don't you? Lam very much ufraid
that ray tires, tho some ones I got
on tho machine, will not last mo
through tho nest season. They
ore almost worn through all over.
It will cost rae from $12 to S15
to got now tires put on, but it is
legitimate wear. I never know a
pair of tires to wear as long and
as well as tliOBO havo, considering
the amount of trovol. When you
consider that thoy hove" travoled
08 far as from Cleveland, O., to
Honolulu, over all sorts of roads
and paths, you will seo that they
must upeds wear somo."
Tho above opinion you will
find to bo the opinion of obout
ey6ry rider of a Itorablor in this
city, and thero aro o lot of Ramb
ler liders here. Our troublo has
been to got enough whools, tho
mokors uot realizing that wo wont
'97 stock before the snow has
molted iu their conutry. By tho
Auslialiu tliid week q loceived 7
ladies' wheels, and six of -thorn wo
havo sold. By the Mioworn mail
we ordered 20 Ramblers' and by
this week's mail wo are. ordering 5
more, and we havo orders' fn for 2
Eacers, so by return Australia wo
will hove 27 Ramblers, and in fut
ure wo do uot propose to loso the
sole of any wheels by not having
them on hand. Bomombor that
the Bomblor is fitted with tho only
tiro that has proved entirely satis
factory iu this country, tho great
"Q. & J." There are imitations to
this tiro to bo found horo, but if
you don't find it out when you buy
them, you will after you have used
them a while, to your sorrow. Tho
