THE REGISTRATION ACT.
A pretty thorough canvass o
tho morcautilo houses was mnilo
yesterday by a Bulletin repro
sontativo, whoso object was to as
certain tho opinions) of merchants
relative to tho Registration Act.
Thero appears to bo a decided
majority opposed to it, many
going so far as to decloro that
thoy will not put their thumb
marks in ovidouco although thoy
havo no especial objection to tho
other items of tho Act. Most of
tho objection was sentimental,
tho argument raised being that
' it is humiliating to a white person
to bo compelled to furnish tho
same method of identification as
that used in China to identify
On tho othor hand it may bo
stated that those who aro now
loudest in condemnation of tho
law, or at least a vory largo major
ity of them, stood idly by and
allowed it to ,go on tho statuto
hooks. 'Thero was abundance of
time while tho bill was boforo tho
Legislatuio to raise some of tho
objections which aro now being
so strenuoubly urged. Tho ques
tion of the constitutionality of
that bection of the bill requiring
a thumb mark can easily bo
brought boforo tho Courts and
determined, and that coureo
should bo pursued by tho op
ponents of tho bill.
If tho objectionable thumb
marl: does nothing elso than to
arouse more public interest in tho
measures boforo tho Logislaturo
than has so far been tho case this
session, it will at least havo ac
complished somo good to tho
Tho bill introduced in tho Sen
ate this morning as a substitute
for MiniBtor Damon's Loan Acts,
should satisfy those who objected
to tho original bills on account of
the high rate of interest, discount
and commission provided therein.
Tho 6ubstituto provides for the
issuing of bonds at par to tho
amount of $752,000, beariug in
terest at 5 per cout. In ca8o any
person or firm takes $250,000 at
any time within ono year a dis
count and commission, not ox
jreeding 2 per cent, for each, may
be allowed. Tho government re
serves tho right to redcom
the bonds at any time by
paying a premium of 5 per cent,
which is in tho ovent of annexa
tion. There is little doubt tho
substitute bill will paRS, as tho
.money must bo obtained for ne
cessary public improvements. The
favorable terms allowed capitalists
ivho will take $250,000 at any ono
iime will probably rosult in tho
"whole issuo being taken up at
once by local capitalists, who will
juako a good thing out of tho
Jransaction by taking tho bonds to
Bostoa, Now York or Chicago and
The Most Beautiful Women . . .

Mr. Marques read an interest
ing pnper at tho open meeting of
tho Theosophical Society in
Harmony Hull last ovoning. Tho
topic was tho verification of many
of Mmo. Blavatsky's predictions
Telativo to tho progress of science.
Mr. Marques showed, in nu in
genious manner, ho,w tho dis
coveries relative to tho Roentgen
ray, the advance in surgery and
bacteriology wore things which
tho former head of the Theoso
phical Society had foretold before

of water in tho rivor is largo. A

foot of tho precipico under tho
falls, about which light mists
play in ovorchauging forms.
Transparent clouds also lloat
aloft ovor tho brow of tho proci
pico. Tho turbulent pool at tho
bottom, perhaps 200 to 300 feet in
diameter, gives an impression of
unfathomable dopth. As tho

of a narrow gorge. Meeting tho

Anybody who visits llilo without

ono of tho foromost attractions of
tho Hawaiian Islands. They
constituto a sight that has not
been mado half prominent enough
in descriptions of our island
Dr. and Mrs. Edwords, Mrs.
Morrill and the writer spent Sun
day at Cocoanut Island, driving
to tho forry in a wagonette. There
was novor a more perfect day in
weathor, and tho touiists wore
almost ecstatic in thoir expres
sions of admiration, regarding
both tho climato and scenery.
The time passed swiftly in at
tempts to fish, gathering shells
and absorbing tho glorious cli
mate.Dr. Edwords "took" the rest
of tho party in several situations,
also a now statuo of Liberty from
Boston, standing on an isolated
rock and pointing to the North
Polo. Thero is not a moro beau
tiful vision of cultivated country
anywhere in tho islands than tho
background of Hilo seen from
Cocoanut Island, and with the
ocean and wooded shoreB in tho
vicinity and tho town in front,
variegated in artificial coloring
and half immersed in luxuriant
foliage, tho whole view is one of
surpassing loveliness. This is
another of tho intrinically chief
attractions of Hawaii that lias not
been sufficiently developed to hold
tho place it deserves.
Today tho Birnios aro enjoying
themselves at a picnic with somo
Hilo friends on pleasure grounds
opposite tho island. All of tho
American tourists who caniodown
last week' return by tho Kinau

Mr. Birnie will leavo by the S. S.

Edwords and Mrs. Morrill will
leavo for thoir respective homos
by tho Alameda on tho 28th inst.
Thoy have greatly oujoyed thoir
visit to tho islands thus far, while
their sociability lias won them
friends at ovory stage of their
pleasure-seeking. Dr. Edwords
is managing editor of tho Kansas
City, Mo., Journal, and a delegate
to tho approaching Republican
National Convention. Ho came
to tho islands for his health, that
had become impaired by arduous
labors in a political campaign, for
which before leaving Kansas City
ho received a cordial testimonial
from loading citizens. D. L.

A FEW WORDS ON BICY
CLES nd CUTLERY.
In a Coast newspaper de
voted to the bicycle business
we read that dealers in bicy
cles are authority for the state
ment that the business aspect
of the bicycle trade has mate
rially changed during the past
year. Instead of fbe main
business consisting in d'cUring
with men's wheels, quite the
contrary is true. Dealers are
now doing their utmost to
attract the eyes of the women.
All of which shows that the
ladies are taking very kindly
to bicycle riding all over the
world. And it is the same
here, the demand for ladies'
wheels is continually increas
ing. We have received five
of the TRIBUNE LADIES'
WHEELS on this steamer and
have more on the way. These
wheels are of this year's make,
direct from the factory, no back
numbers, and have all the latest
We have also a number of
Tribune racers and gent's road
sters, and a number of "Zim
my" wheels. This is an en
tirely new machine, named
after the great rider, Zimmer
mann, and we shall be pleased
to explain its merits to in
But we started in to say a
few words on CUTLERY, of
which we received an im
mense assortment on the Aus
tralia, which is now unpacked
and on exhibition. In table
cutlery we have an immense
variety in new and elegant
patterns and all sizes. In pock
et cutlery we have a number
of new designs. Knives to
cut lead pencils and knives to
trim your finger nails with, and
knives to cut down your ex
penses with. We have prun
ing knives which are just the
thing for the members of the
Legislature to use in cutting
down the appropriation bills,
and some suitable for the Ad
vertiser man to do his "cheese
paring" with. In fact we
have all kinds of knives, large
and small, light or heavy, but
all of them of the best quality
We have carving knives
with ivory, buckhorn or bone
handles, butcher knives, skin
ning knives, knives with cork
screws in them for camping
out or staying at home. In
fact we have all sorts of knives
suitable for all sorts and con
ditions of people.
