Sir Charles is correct, notwith

hahitauts of Queboo were by tho
treaty of cession granted the en

is why tho Roman code is on nn
equality with the English com

French is retained as oue of tho
official languages in tho courts
and tho legislature federal as

the Roman Catholic religion has

Captain Rosehill of tlio'schoon
or Norma, who visitod tho disput
ed Palmyra island iu that vessel
about the 2i!nd of Juno, furnishes
tho Bulletin' with tho following
luomorandn. lie found tracos of
tho recent encampment of thu II.
13. M. S. Penguin expedition on
Palmyra Island was discovered
by Cupt. Sawlo, of tho Amorioun
ship Palmyra, in 1802. Ho do
scribed it ns 11 miles iu oxtont
East and West, and about half
that in breadth; Hat; with n lagoon
in its center 7 miles long in which
tho tido regularly obbed and (low
ed; and uninhabited. Tho Pal
myra anohored off the N W. Bide
o tho island, three-quarters of a
milo off shore in 20 fathoms.
Turtle wore abundant, but no
fresh water could be found.
Formal possession was taken
of tho island by tho American
Guano Company in 1839, and by
the Hawaiian Government in
18G2. Capt. Bent, in his letter to
tho Hawaiian Minister of tho In
terior, roports that "the island is
10 miles iu longtb and 0 miles in
broadth;tho eastern end rises about
20 foot above the lovel of tho sea;
tuejauding place is on tho west
end, and vessels can lie in perfect
safety in 3 fathoms water. The
trees on tho island are cocoanut,
puhala and a species of koa.
"All kinds of vegetables will
grow on tho island and I planted
some beans, corn and watermelons.
I erected a dwelling house and
also a cusing house for bechor-do-mor,
leaving ono white man and
four HawaiianB on the island."
Position. Capt. Sawle made
I'ulmyra Island in Lat. o 50
North; Long.162 23 West. Capt.
Bent placed it iu Lat. C 50Nortu;
Long. 161 52 Wost.
Later tho island was the pro
perty of the P. N. Co., of which
A. F. Cooke was mauuger. Capt.
II. Nissen of tho schooner Malolo
in 1885 landed a gang of natives
and one white man on the island
to plant and cultivate.
In thu latter part ot 1880, Capt.
G. B. Hollnud in tho schooner
Malolo took the men off the isl
and and returned them to their
homes, their time of service hav
Judge Wilcox, who is one of
the Hawaiian owuers, says their
property in tho island has never
be n conveyed. Ho does not care
under what national protection
the island rests, but his company
will not yield tho point of actual
ownership of the ground.
Captain Bosehill adds that he
would have brought tho British
anneaxtion signboard up with him,
but his cook broke it up for fire
wood. Tho board waB about two
by three feet iu surface, and muoh
of the inscription, including tho
date, had been effaced by tho ele
ments. The Captain "Bent," aB his
namo is given in tho Paoific Di
reotory, wub the father of the
Biudt family, of whom a lamo boy
is well-known in connection with
the Salvation Army horo.
On top of tho forogoing, the
following memorandum has been
handed to tho Bulletin:

The Kcwalo Bicycle Track,
to be known as Cyclomere
Park, is at last a reality and
"not a dream," thanks to the
energy and enterprise of Ar.
Desky, and will be opened
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
Tn'bune Bicycles than which
there is none better in the
market. The Tribune is now
recognized in Ihe United States
as the best; it is the favorite
with aH the society people and
business men all over the
Union, and our own American
Minister lides 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 before going else
where. We have ladies' and
gentlemen's road wheels, racers
and all models manufactured
by the celebrated Black Manu
facturing Co. We also carry
