There is n bill pending in tho
Legislature to recall tho old silver
certificates and issuo new cer
tificates upon both gold aud silvor
doposits. .It will probably bo
found that tho government is
ahead of the public as regards tho
Biber certificates, as doubtless
many of them Imvo beeu lost
where they cannot bo found or
destroyed by fire or ether ie.
Porhaps this is tho mot'vo for
issuing gold certificates that is,
tho profit tho government may
make out of the losses tho public
frill sustain through tho accident
al desti action of those perishable
rocoipts for tho yellow metal.
This is indeed ono of the argu
ments of "rag money" advocates,
which is unworthy of adoption by
any honest government. Wo hnvo
never heard of auy public demand
for gold certificates upon gold
doposits. There is n good reason
for paper substitutes fur the much
inoio cumbersome curroucy in
silver. It is a thorough uuisauco
to have to pack about ono's per
son even ten dollars in silver, one
hundred dollars in gold boinq
As this is a government pro
fossodly all the time for reform,
it ought when roforming the cur
rency to lmvo repaired the broken
faith of formor governments re
garding tho currency. It was
once the law that silvor certifi
cates of 20 and upward were
redeemablo in gold. Tho banks
refused to recognize tho law and
the government followod suit by
making silvor certificates of all
denominations only ndoemablo
in silvor, and discounting silvor
certificates when offered for gov
ernment dues above ten dollars
in amount. Perhaps tho United
States government's poromptory
demand of tho Hawaiian govern
ment to collect customs duties in
gold had something to do with
tho matter. Yet when tho Ha
waiian government once issued
certificates on tho assurance that
tho higher denominations repre
sented gold, it should hnvo kopt
iaith with the public ovon if it
had to nny tho discount. So long
as ten silvor dollars will buy as
much as ten dollars in gold, it
does not seem politic to issuo
soparato certificates for tho two
metals It may indeed tend to
precipitate a silvor panic hore,
which would occasion an incalcu
lable degree of distress among tho

comes out with a cover. It is a
particularly spioy number in its
references to publ'o affairs.
The Government, with its lav
ish liberality toward tho civil sor
vico, might havo spared a littlo to
pay a proof roador on the j rinted
bills thus far presented. It will
take a groat part of tho timo in
both houses to correct tho gross
typographical errors in these
documonts. Ono sample is "Re
gistrar of Republic Accounts.1'
If there wero not other errors
equally as bad, it might be sup
posed that there was something
royalistic to bo obliterated in tho
titlo of Mr, Thrum's office.

A gentleman on Maui, who has
always taken a deep interest in
public affairs and has boon a mem
ber of tho Legislature, writes in
roply to a circular issued by tho
editor of tho Independent. Ho
promisos an answer to tho sovoral
questions of tho circular later, but
in tho tnenntimo givos his views
in general as follows: "1 nm
heartily in favor of annexation for
tho eflcot it will have upon tho
manhood of tho islands. Genoral
Armstrong said that tho McKin
loy bill forced upon this country
a decision between financial and
moral retrogression. Tho decision
thus far scorns to be in favor of
moral retrogression. Of courso.

well awnro; but if wo do not get
this coolie immigration stopped
soon wo shall have a land simply
of nabobs and coolies. I am in
sympathy with tho Hawaiians,
and in thoir intorcsts favor an-
nexation. It is all that I can seo

serfdom. 1 also-favor annexation
for tho suite of stable government.

government can bo overthrown,

had only been continued for a
short time after dinner when tho.
bargo koeled over to tho wator's

eaid tho coal will bo u total loss

Overloading and taking too much

the cause of tho accident.

June 19, 189?.
As the days go by the bicy
cle is coming more and more
to the front. It is becoming an
actual necessity in almost every
department of the world's af
fairs. Emperor William of
Germany has already recog
nized its utility in his
vast military organization
and has equipped several regi
ments with wheels. This sug
gestion is offered to Col Mc
Lean, who is said to be think
ing of organizing a cavalry
Instead of mounted police
why not furnish the guardians
of the peace with bicycles, the
same as is done in Chicago,
New York, San Francisco and
other large cities. In his re
cent report the attorney general
dilates in glowing terms on the
utility of the mounted police
in the outlying districts. What
is the matter wirh mount
ing them on wheels? This sug
gestion is respectfully offered
to Abrshal Hitchcock and his
superior. A good horse costs
more than a good bicycle, but
irrespective of that there are
several reasons why the wheel
is tne more economical ana
useful of the two. Among
them may be mentioned:
1. Bicycles don't eat hay at
K) per ton,
2. Bicycles don't munch
oats and barley all day long when
they can get it", and
Bicycles don't bite nor tread
on your pet corns.
Bicycles never get tired and
they don't drink.
Now there are bicycles and
bicycles, of all sorts, sizes and
shapes but none of them come
up to the Monarch in beauty,
strength and swiftness.
It is the strongest, fastest, and
most beautiful wheel that is
manufactured, and tne wheel
men ot America know -it. J
Those in Hawaii' have only to
try the machine once to arrive
at the same opinion.
The Monarch Bicycle Co. is
making this yean two special
grades of wheels. We have
them both. One- sells at $90
and the other at $105. The
$90 wheel is for those, riders
who are not particular about
having the very lightest weights.
out wno want a good, service
able wheel, sold under a bind
ing guarantee, which will run
easily and wear well. The$lQ
wheel is the latest product in
high grade wheels. It is ab
solutely the best high grade
bicycle on the market, strong,
stiff, staunch, light and easy
running andgivingentire satis
faction to all.who ride it. To
sum up its perfections it is
the monarch of all wheels.
We have received the first
consignment of a dozen of
these wheels and they are
going off like hot cakes. We
sold two of them this morn
ing before lunch. We have
several other consignments on
the way and will soon be in
condition to supply the army,
police and other government
departments, with a few left
over for the navy when its offi
cers feel like taking a spin out
to the beach. To the general
public we would say 'Don't
purchase a bicycle till you have
seen tne monarcn. it you
don't buy of us then there will
be no hard feelings on our part.
