At n former Htiiun in tlio affairs

Its bring such a breiio' ! iu
the taking ndvuutago of the pros
pect of nnuexution to obtain in
directly, for foreign shipowners,
a L'leat privilege from the United
States whioh is impoBsiblo to bo

of the United States afford benefits
to American shipbuilders, and for
outsiders to bo given such benefits
in spito of those laws by llaunii
while peeking admission to tho
Union might, it is easy to imagine,
create disagreeable complications.
So far as particulars aro now ob
tainable, however, thero appears
to hnvo been no undue advantage
taken. The owners of the China
wore Burovtd enough to take
action before transfers of registry
had boon forbidden.
lhere is ample time to choo9o
candidates for tho election. Even
if thero wore the likehood of con
tests all over the islands, which is
not tho case, the shorter the cam
paign the better. As regards
measures wo have had two years to
diccuss them, and, men, there is
not much fear of auy who are not

greut danger lies iu machine no

if tho electors simply turn out to
the primaries and refuse to ratify
tho predetermined decrees of
coteries tuude in becret. It would
as a rulo be a safe policy for tho
electors at large to smash every

When tho lawyers can find
enough points in tho controverted

carry tho caRO through seventeen

final decision, it would not be a bit
surprising if some of tho more

they got a fat feo in such enses

to find a delicate question or two

that consideration need not pre

Soveral of tho members of tho
Central Commtttoo of the Ame
rican Union party tako exceptions
to editorial statements mado iu a
morning paper concerning the
coming election ami stronuously
dony that there is a singular lack
of interest in the coming election
for members of tho House of Re
presentatives. Ou tho contrary
meetings of the Central Commit
tee concerning the election were
held before W. N. Armstrong re
turned from Washington as well
as since. Another meeting of the
committee is to bo held ou Friday
evening ut which it is very pro
baiiln a call for primaries to elect
del gules to Ilia convention to
nominate six candidates for this
inland will bo ouliTcd.
It may be stated on iuforma
tion gained from a membor of
the committee, who is highly in
dignant over what ho considers
unjust strictures on the committee
made in tho morning paper, that
the personnel of Oshu'a represen
tation in the lower houeo of tho
coming Legislature is receiving
especial Attention at the hands of
the committee, who are preparing
a list of suitable persons for pre
sentation to the convention with
thn committce'd endorsement.
In the last election Nuuauu
street was the dividing liueof tho
islaud,three members being appor
tioned to the territory ou either
side of that btieet. It is hs yet
undetermined whether this appor
tionment will bo adhered to or
not this year, but most likely not.
Among the mauy named already
under consideration by the com
nuttee as suitable candidates, that
of A. G. M. Robertson heads the
list. Mr. RoheiUou's services in
the lust Legislature were so
eminent and gratifying to his
constituents that every effort has
been made to induce him to al
low his name to bo used again.
Tho Bulletin is happy to state
that Mr. Kobertson has consented
to be a candidate and it goes
without saying that his election
Representative W. 0. Winston
has also consented to run for re
election. Mr. Wiustou was the
father of the present income tax
law and is a safe conservative
Speaker D. L. Naone will prob
ably ho renominated and elected.
He filled the speaker's chair so
acceptably iu tho last Legislature
that in case of his re election he
would probably be again selected
as presiding otlitvr.
Tho only other caudidato of
native blood who has so far
come to tho front is V. C. Achi,
who is particularly anxious to be
in the next Legislature. It is not
known whether Mr. Achi will
submit Ins claims to the conven
tion or run as au indopoudont
Mr. A. J. Campbell of Camp
bell & Robinson is mentioned as
most likely to be selected to rep
resent Ewa district and tho fruit
Tho member of the committee
before referred to said this
morning that it was the desiro of
the Central Committee to present
to the convention only the names
of those of proved exeoutivo and
business ability. Said he: "The
claim was mado at tho last Legis
lature and with good reason that
tho Senate was delayed and ham
pered by tho slownoss of the
lower house. Thero is no reason
with tho material at our command
why the House of Representatives
should not bo tho equal of the
Senato in executive ability, legal
knowledge and business tact, aud
it will not be tho fault of tho
Central Committee if it is not so
in the coming Legislature.

"not a dream," thanks to the
energy and enterprise of Ar.
Desky, and will be orjencd
.with a grand meet next month,
'and all the young men and
perhaps also the lovely girls
will want to try their luck on
it. In anticipation of increased
.sales on bicycles we have
quietly laid in a good stock of
Tribune Bicycles than which
there is none better in the
market. The Tribune is now
! recognized in the United States
as the best; it is the favorite
with all the society people and
business men all over the

( Minister rides one. Recent
advices announce a cut in
prices of low grade, but the
strictly high grade wheels still
sell readily at the former list
price. We have made better
arrangements with the manu
facturers, whereby' we are en
abled to sell the Tribune bicy
cles at list price 100, and
invite all intending purchasers
. of wheels to come and inspect
our stock betore going else
where. We have ladies' and
gentlemen's road wheels, racers
