DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, MAR. 17, 1897.
It is unto to say that rarely if
ovor has n decision of tlioSuiiremo
Court boon given which will be
more universally concurred in by
the peoplo of this country than
that rondel ed by tho Suprotno
Court in the matter of tho petition
of a largo numbor of intending
Jnpiuiest) immigrants for a writ of
habeas corpus, under which they
might outer the Hawaiian
Islands and becomo part and
parcel of tho population
thereof. The effect of this
delivurauco of tho highest judicial
authority of tho country is not to
restrict Japaueso immigration of
n In wf ul sort in any degree. Re
striction of tho introduction of
Jupaneso cither fiee or under
contiact for labor cannot bo
effected excoptiug uudor tho pro
visions of tho Aliou Act while tho
presont treaty relations with
Japan continue. There is a strong
opiuiou held almost uuivorsally
by tho citizons of this coun
try, oxceptiug a few plan
ters, that tho lawful impoitatiou
of .lapauoje is being conducted to
an excess. If, thou, tho slight
control over Japaueso immigra
tion which is provided in our law
should havo been found liable to
bo smashed to pieces by interest
ed porsous armed with quibbles
and technicalities wrouched from
legal forms nud practises, thoio
would bo occasion for tho pro
foundest indignation on the part
of tho public which might easily
bo expected to result in an irre
pressible agitation for the abroga
tion of tho treaty with Japan
and tho total exclusion
of Japaueso immicration. The i
decision of tho Court will make
tho public breathe easier, with tho
ossuranco that Japanese immi
grauts cannot be dumped into tho
country, fraudulently, by tho
shipload. They must either como
under contiact to labor, with the
appioval cE the Uoaid of Immi
gration, or every mothor's ton of
them have at lenst fifty dollars of
his own in pocket not tho mere
holding of that amount sent from
shoro, for tho purpose of ovad
ing tho law, for the few
minutes of his inspection by
the customs officials. The
Bulletin has not the loast doubt
did not havo from tho beginning
that those responsible for the
proionco, at tho gates of thib
country today, of the Japoneso
who havo been refused admission,
coldly calculated upon gotting
them into the Hawaiian Islands,
partly through the presumed com
" plaisancy of tho Government and
for tho rest by evasions of tho law
or, if necessity arose, by a degrada
tion of thnt great boon of
liberty, tho writ of habeas corpus,
to a mercenary end. Tho game
has been foiled, however, once for
all. Now that tho customs officials
have their authority of decisiou
established in the matter, tho pub.
lie will expect them to bo stricter
than over in their inspection of
United u Mipcp to Dentil.

AN IKIN1I WILL.
Without It 1iiiinlrHrl In IIh-
In a recent numbor of tho Froo
man's Journal, Dublin, rccoived
at tho Bulletin office, a curious
will case is reported. Michael
MoDermott left two farms togeth
er with stock and other chattels,
valued at $1000, to his nephew,
Georgo MoDermott, on condition
that ho should tako for his wed
dec! wife tho testator's uieco-in-law,
Miss Ann Murphy. Should
ho rofuso to get married to Miss
Murphy and tako some othor por
sou as his wifo, ho should cease to
havo any claim or title to the
property described, which should
then belong to tho wifo of tho tes
tator. If these directions wore
carried out, the will provided that
cortaiu cattle, etc., wero to go to
tho testator's wife, and sho was
to havo a room in his house. Aftor
tho testator's death Georgo Mc
Dermott ontored into possession
of tho farms. Ho was a delicato
young man, and died ou February
10, 18'JG, haviug married noithrr
Alice Murphy nor anyone else. It
was in tho evidence in the suit re
ported below that George had not,
asked Alice to many him, but ou
being questioned as to whether ho
would cot married his reply was
"Auything you liko." Aftor his
death tho testator's widow, Bridgot
McDormott, outered into posses
sion. Simon Cunningham obtained
probata of tho will. These two last
mentioned weie mado defendants
in a suit for tho property brought
by Francis MoDeimott, tho father
and personal representative of the
dead uophow, Georgo. Tho caso
wusi argued by prominent counsel
beforo tho Master of the RoIIp,
who lipid that thp rift in tho will
was subject to a condition which
was a condition subsequent. Tho
nephew hnd not refused to marry
tho lady, nor had he married any
one elso. The order of tho court
was that on the plaintiff under
taking to carry out the directions
in the will as to tho benefits to bo
conforrcd on tho widow in tho
same manner as if tho nephew
had married tho lady, tucro should
bo a declaration that tho plaintiff
was entitled to tho rents and
The case will bo interesting to
lawyers iu Hawaii, where the
courts often have curious wills to
coustruo, with conditions baspd
upon future contingencies that
cannot be foreseen.

If it bo the government dictated

Mr. J. Kuapp Reeve, ono can

But if it bo the homo govornmont
that is chargeable with oil or ouy
part of tho horrors of rural life
on that sunny island wo cannot
couccivo a man insane enough to
raiso his hand to savo such a gov
ernment from going straight to
tho devil. Mr. Reevo says:
"Between tho condition of tho
planter and that of all other agri
culturists whatovor in Cuba the
widest difference exists. The
laborer has nothing, nover has
had anything, and is happy in tho
knowledge that ho novor will
havo anything. Tho small farm
or, tho owner of n few acres, is
tho most abjectly poverty stricken
sou of tho soil that I havo ovor
mot. Ho lives in tho poorest
habitation known to civilized
men, a hut mado of tho bark of
tho palm tree. Besido it tho
adobo dwelling of tho Mexican is
a palace. It has ono room, u dirt
floor, neither window nor chim
ney. In this tho family livo liko
cattle, subsisting upon tho poorest
of food, as most that tho soil pro
duces must go to pay tho taxes.

"TRIBUNE" 1897 WHEELS,
We have just received our
1897 Tribune Wheels and
invite inspection. We have
them both for Ladies and
Gents and we have plenty of
them on hand and more on the
The '97 Tribune is an im
provement over its predecessors
and is second to none. Among
the changes made we might
mention the increase of the
upper frame tube to 1 1-8 in.,
and the adoption of one inch
tubular seat post, secured by
clamp, retaining otherwise the
same foim of forging into
which the rear tubes are brazed.
The crank fastening is also im
proved, and secured more posi
tively oy tne use oi a smaii
key instead of clamp screw;
the matched corrugations of
the shaft and crank are retained.
We are selling '97 Tribunes
For a good, strong, durable
wheel for every day use we
have the "Stormer." It is a
cheap wheel for the money
and will be found quite as ser
viceable as some of the higher
priced ones. It is the '97 pat
tern and has all the late im
provements. We also have a lew "Zimmy
wheels on hand, which we are
clqsing out at $4I. They are
cheap at double the money.
We carry a full line of bicy
cle sundries of all kinds, such
as wooden handle bars, shoes,
