Minister Cooper's scheme to
have tho govurument asmst in
Oiling up tbo Waikiki ponds flav
ors of tbo character of active ac
tivity that accomplishes some
thing aud dofe net waste too
much time talking iiboat it.
The most reoout commanica
tions from President MoKioley bo
far as known are tho letters to the
Hawaiian government and the
Sunday Volonno. Both letters
are carefully kept from the pub
lic Is it because of tho similar
ity or tho difference?
The spokesaan of tho Govern
ment officials has tho good grace
to speak of Mr. Hartwell as "Oar
Delegate." Indeed ho is your
your delegate, gentlemen of tho
Hawaiian Government and you
are to be congratulated on this
admission though it does como
late iu the day aud after aiu
efforts to place this delegate in
tbo tttegory of popular ropront
atives. Tho dofotiBt) U offered, that Mr.
Hartwell is just aa much an Ha
waiian representative as Embassa
dor Choate is the American re
presentative to England. On the
ground that a poor excuse is better
than uono wo readily endorse this
viw But why tho necessity of a
defense ? That it should bo deom
ed neceesury demonstrates tho
lack of strongth iu tbo govern
Tho similarity between the Am
erican Embassador to England
and the Htwaiian Governments
uuollicial dolegato to Washington
is truly remarkable. One, a dnely
authorized international necessity,
the other, i bermorphroditio haph
azard hutched up for the occasion
to serve tbo ends of ollicials,who are
subject to the commands of the
Government to which this delegate
is ticort-dited. The comparison is a
powerful one iu that it brings in
bold relief tbe difference.
The opposition ha never raised
an objection to the Hawaiian Exe
cutive seudiug a delegate to Wash
iujjtou. Theie ollicinln have a
right to be heard, though they ac
complish moro harm than good to
the best iutorcats of Huwuii. ,
Tho fact is now eaUblisboil that
this delegate represents tho bu
rohuoracy of Hawaii, a govern
ment that, with fow exceptions,
has leut its iullueocu to warding
off a speedy acceptance of Ameri
can rule, u governmnnt which at
the present time is uot above
throwing its iulluenco against
speedy legiilaliou by Coogte3s, if
it for 009 tint the action of Con
gress is not likely to be favorablo
to Hit' poiitictl interests of Ha-
'i& C'Wftfi'ti 'pwftut leil officials.

T1IK OLAA LANDS.
(From the Hawaii Herald.)
There soems to be littlo ground
for doubt that tho potition of tho
OlaaBettlers has had (ho considera
tion of tho Executive at Washing
ton notwithstanding tho mysto
rious secreoy maintained in tho
Land Department in Honolulu.
And this secrecy haB spread to
Hilo and way ports. The position
of tho settler in Olaa is as well, if
not better, known to Washington
authorities than it is to tho Exe
cutive in Honolulu, tho only dif
ference being that tbo Govern
ment on tho mainland prefers to
take tho matter under considera
tion rathor than to push headlong
into a question winch may or may
not bo followed by unpleasant
consequences. The Olati settlers
have not contonded that tboy bavo
a standing in court ot that tbe po
sition they ato maintaining has any
legal standing, but tboy know, as
does everyone who kaslivod in the
United StaeB and paid any atten
tion to the subject of lands, that the
only way to initiate a claim is to
settle upon the unoccupied land,
Hie question of its being survey
ed or not is of little consequence.
There is no doubt that whon the
laud qnestion in Hawaii ib
brought . before Congress, tho
Olaa settlers will have a hearing
and that the American Congress
men will give heed to the request
before them. Land Agent Bald
win contonds that because the
revenues of the country still rest
in tho Hawaiian treasury the title
of the lands in tbo islands still
rests with tho island Government.
And this contention is made in
spite of tho special provisions
mado iu tne Nowlands resolution
that the tit'o of all lands is bore
by ceded to the United States,
The United States by tho treaty
of aunexation assumes tbo island
debt of $4,000,000. A short time
ago the indebtedness had gone
beyond that figure. As the title
to lands, according to Mr. Bald
win, still rests with Hawaii, per
haps ho can any what figure tbe
indebtedness, over and above tho
sura assumed by tbe Uuited
States, will cut when the subject
comes beforo Congress?
CII1LD1IKN IN NTItKK.TH,
The else of a Ohiuojo child
knocked down by a hackman and
badly bruised tbo other night
caused a baggage miiu to speak
his mind to a Bulletin reporter
iu the Polico Court this morning.
"It may look to many as if tho
blamo of accidents to people on
the streets is alw.-ys duo to hack
men and drivers of other vehicles
but really it is moro often tbo case
that the blame is on the other
side," said tbo baggage man.
"I refer particularly to children
in the streets and have a case in
point to cite. Last week I was
tiikiuc a.load of laborers up Nuu-
anu Valley. Ou tho way I saw a
lot or uoys playing marbles in tue
street. Just as we passed by, one
of tho fellows mado a dive direct
ly for tbe wagon and roscaed a
"king" that was about toboruu
over by the wheel. The least slip
aud about two tons wonld have
passed over his body. Of course
I would have been arioUed and my
troublo would have been great
whoroas tho fault would not htvvo
been mine at all. I could cite
many more cases bat this would
bo useless. I think tho police
should have an oye ou the pedes

America's army of invasion derive
from this day at Honolulu." From

THE STERLING CONSIDERED
THE BEST WHEEL MADE.
"As the constant drop of water
Wears awav the hardest stone:
As tne constant gnaw oi tiger
Masticates the toughest bone;
As the constant cooing lover .
Carries off blushing malJ,"
So the constant cycle rider
Says, the Sterling's bost wheel made.
Manv and varied are the blcvcles which
are now offered to the riding public: some
good, others lainy so; out more wnicn are
scarcely worthy of the name. To the In
experienced wheelman all wheels look
alike to him, as they are enamelled, nickel
ed and decorated to produce a like effect.
The best fittings, as tires, saddles, etc.,
are also sometimes to be found on the
cheapest wheels; this being possible, as
the money which should be expended on
good material and the skillful manufacture
of same, Is used Instead, for the outside
appearances; thus bright nickel and good
enamel may cover the cheapest cast iron
find rr.i nlrv.
In the every day use of a cycle, It Is
subjected to very severe strains, and a
machine upon which the owner Is to trust
his safety should be carefully selected, as
an Imnerfectlv brazed tube, or other simi
lar defect, Is liable to cause serious Injury
to the rider. Therefore It is well, when
purchasing a wheel, to examine fully Into
Its construction, material used, and the
amount of experience Its makers have had
in the building of 'cycles. Before you
finally decide to buy a wheel, the. P. C.
Mfg. Co. on Fort Street would like to
show you the '99 Model Sterling and ex
