THAT WANDERING OUTLAW.
llnlley's comet can now he seen
In New York, but the experts say
that It can not be seen here. Others
who study the heavens claim that
the Interesting vvnndeier may now
be seen from our viewpoint, and the
fellow who doesn't know much about
It, and cares less, wonders why a
mutter of a few thousand tulles
should Interfere In the observance of
n heavenly visitor that numbers Its
movements in billions of miles
In the opinion of the astronomer
a comet Is a poor alTalr, a thing that
has no recognized home and purpose,
no master, no satellites and no kin,
n genuine outlaw of tfie heavens. It
Is so thin that n little tenth-rate
planet could cut tluough It almost
without pausing, and while every
other heavenly body has Its recog
nized business sphere, the comet, so
far as mi)ouo knows, does no work
nt all. It rushes Into notice once a
century or two and then rushes out
again, neither lamented nor missed.
Hut If the present comet ran ill
lect the attention of tho public to
the heavens for a while It will servo
n useful purpose. The main facts of
astronomy nru highly Interesting. It
Is only dry textbooks that have made
tiB turn away from them. Head u
good popular astronomy and )ou will
gain a dim, remote Idea of Infinity
und etcrnlt). Sometimes ou thlnlc
)ou seo a big star, but you do not;
)ou merely seo tho light from It
which has been 2500 )ears In reach
Almost evcr)body knows that our
em th Is a third-rate planet in our
solar s)8teni. Jupiter would scarce
ly condescend to notice us. Hut
they do not know that our sun It
self sits below the salt. It would not
be admitted to a congregation of Im
portant heavenly bodies. Canopus,
the largest star that wo sec. Is ten
thousand times tho size of our sun,
and our solar center Is hopelessly
outclassed by Aldebnran, nigel, Si
ms, Hctelgucso and countless others.
Murk Twain put this fact very
well In one of his stories, "Captain
Stormficld's Visit to Heaven." When
the Captain arrived nnd announced
that ho was from the earth the ro
unding angels could nut le'iiemher

After the minutes of the previous
meeting had been read nnd approv
ed, the president read tils annual re
port. The following named gentle
men comprised tho different standing
committees during the past year:
Public Affairs Clcorge W. Smith,
chairman; Norman Wntklns, R. II.
Publicity nnd Promotion C. C.
von Hnmni, chairman; Henry I'llu
ger, V. T. P. Waterhouse.
Trade and Finance E. H. Paris,
chairman; Robert Lnngc, W. T.
A special committee composed of
Ocorge W. Smith, C. C. von Ilanun
mid E. H. Paris was appointed to
take up with the members of the
Legislature that rearranging of n law
which would be upon a moro equable
basis than the present license fees
applying to the different branches of
the merchandise business. It being
considered Hint the brokers nnd com
mission men were not paying their
pro rata according to tho amount of
business they transacted. A compro
mised hill was fmnlly drawn, leaving
tho rctnll license nt $25 nnd the lint
llccnso fee of $250 for both whole
sale dealers and merchandise brokers
and commission men. This bill full
ed to get the signature of the Gov
ernor, mid In the meantime the Gov
ernor appointed a stamp nnd license
commission, tho gentlemen compos
ing such commission being William
L. Stanley, R. II. Trent and O. V.
Hush. I trust the Incoming direc
tors will see lit to have a Bpeclal
committee nppolnted to advise with
the license commission and endeavor
to remodel the present law so that
u more equable basts of license fees
can be ui ranged to cover tho differ
ent brunches of business.
In speaking of the system of pro
miscuous solicitations for money
which have now become so numer
ous In Honolulu, Mr. Waldron stated
"While the majority of the sub
scription lists almost dally presented
to the merchants ure for good and
worthy muses, the system has be
come very much abused, bo that In
the end, extraordinary cases of ne
cessity nnd great public benefits will
suffer, for the reason that the aver
age merchant can not stand tho pres
ent continuous and unfair drain. As
un example of the abuse of tho sys
tem, I have only to mention the pe
tition now going tho rounds asking
for $2000 to allow of two unfortu
nates to leve tho Islands. Thero Is
little doubt but that tho fund will
be raised, and It Is u question of how
long It will be before we substitute

A letter received from Y. Taka
kuwa, secretary of the Japanese Mer
chants' Association of Honolulu,
formed one of the chief topics of dis
cussion nt tho Morchants' Association
meeting yestciday. This letter Is
given as follows:
"Wo beg to notify you that at the
annual meeting of our association,

Tho directorate Is as follows: S. Oza

Pied L. Wuldrou then stated that
the Japanese Merchants' Association
were cooperating with the Mer
chants' Association of Honolulu with
a view to Btamplng out the green
trading stamp nuisance nnd "tane

Jest ars as follows:
"On certain matters, your directors
