The King's "Barber."
In the Juno number of thp
Overland Monthly, a rather insignificant
magazine published
in San Francisco, W. N. Armstrong
publishes an articlo in
which ho by all means endeavors
to ridicule Kalaknua and
his trip around the world, and
revels in insults and slurs
against the Hawaiians.
Tho articlo is accompanied
by a beautiful picture of Armstrong,
who appears clothed in
the gorgeous uniform of an
Hawaiian ambassador, for
which tho victim of his ridicule
. presumably paid. Mr. W. N.
Armstrong, who has been a
failure in every occupation undertaking
by him and who
simply owed to tho King's
friendship his appointment, was
made Attorney-General of the
Kingdom of Hawaii in 1880,
and ho now shows his gratitude
to the late monarch by abusing
him and heaping ridicule
and vilification on him, his sister
and his people. Armstrong
was novor behindhand in drawing
his salary, either ns Attorney-General
or as Minister of
State. Ho never appeared in
tho courts. Ho never did a
stroko of work within tho function
of his offices. It was under
his administration that tho
notorious palace job was
in wliich tho country
was mulcted in many thousands
of dollars. But ho drew his
salaries and don't you forget
it. Ho now considers the
King's journey a farce, if not a
fraud. If so, why did he
it, support it and assent
to it? Why did that virtuous
man go with tho King if ho
knew that nothing could be
gained by the journey ? If the
King's trip was extravagant,
unnecessary and ridiculous,
why did Mr. Armstrong give
his countenance to it, and why
did he consent to gohimsolf?
Ho went, howevor, at tho expense
of tho King and ho now
laughs in his sleevo because tho
dead monarch was foolish
onough to entertain in his suite all Sunday schools joined to-a
specimen liko Armstrong, gother qnco in a year and en-The
European newspapers ex- joyed a pleasant celebration,

that tho King "selected as

loavo Mr. Armstrong to a well-deserved
oblivion. Ho says
that under tho monarchy tho
Hawaiians cared nothing about
"public improvements, educa
tional systems or charitable
institutions." We would liko
to know if Mr. Armstrong, tho
quondam minister of state and
attorney-general, has seen public
improvements and educational
systems better advanced
under the ropublic which
spends the revenue of the coun

farce and an unnecessary police
force than they were in tho
days of the monarchy when
Hawaii was brought up to the
high .standing that sho then
held among civilized powers.

It cannot be denied that the

are kept in a very fair and good

Monarch and the roads oi Honolulu
will be equal pleasure
to the rider of that famous
wheel as they are to the swell
horseman and driver. The
Monarch bicycle is among the
high grade wheels. It is now
the favorite in the United States
and the Monarch Cycle Manu
facturing Company is simply
unable to attend to the orders
which are crowding in, so that
it nas to enlarge its lactones
greatly to meet the demand.
We have succeeded in securing
an invoice of eleven which will
arrive here during the next
week and we can offer them
at a very reasonable figure.
The Monarch frame is made' of
the best quality of spirally
drawn Mannesmann Steel Tubing
and it is built for appearance
as well as for speed. The
Monarch frame is very rigid,
very strong,- very light, very
graceful and very comfortable.
All Alonarch bearings are fitted
with the Binns Patent Ball
Holder and Dust Protector,
which makes it possible to re
move tne cones or an lateral
bearings without disturbing
the balls.
The narrow tread on a bicycle
is the latest fad. The
Monarch claims that there is a
limit to all things and the Monarch
tread will be $ 3-4 inches,
which is the narrowest claim
consistent with the safety of
the rider.
A Kingfisher bicycle lamp
will perhaps be suitable for
Waikiki, while a Demon lamp
seems to indicate meeting with
the' mounted police.
The Monarch racers for ladies
and gentlemen will "commend
themselves to everybody who
enjoys a spin. We will at
some luiure day devote more
space to fully describe the su
perb bicycle, As soon as our
invoice arrives we will invite
vou to inspect the wheel, if
they are not all ordered before
