THE NATIONAL TREASURY.
WASHINGTON, Marcn 9 Secretary Car
lisle this morning autnorized the an
nouncement that lie would exercise all the
power and discretion vested in him to up
bold the credit of the government and to
maintain the parity of gold and sil-ver.
This statement was made to brush away
tbe rumors that hate gained circulation,
but he declined to say anything as to
what he would do in the mam, or as to
the issue of bonds, or as to paying United
States notes and United States treasury
notes in stiver when the free gold was ex
hausted, etc '1 he example of Denver in
offering $1,000,000 in gold yesterday for
treasury notes has been followed by the
Chicago bankers, w ho today offered XX),000
in gold for United States notes. At the
treasury department it is thought tbat
the hankers in other cities will do like
wise There is a feeling of relief as to the
gold balance at the treasury, aud unlets
the exports of gohl on Siturday are un
usually heavy, of which no information
has yet been received, the treasury deoirt
ment will huve nlenty of gold to supply
Solicitor General Aldrich today, in a re
port ou the question of the power of the
secretary of tne treasury to use any part
of the gold reserve fund, gives an opinion
"The secretary has the continuing
1 power to fssue bonds to redeem the leijal
tenders 01 l&W ana 150-J nna 1 lie reissues
under the act of Maj 3, ls7o. There is no
requirement in the act that the redemp
tion of legal tenders shall be made in gold.
Sliver could undoubtedly be used, but
might can a panic. The secretary ha
no power to issne bonds not redeemable iu
either gold or silver. The law stipulates
that tne shall be redeemed in coin, which
means either gold or silver. Tho belief
that there is no positive pro ision of law
requiring th it the f 100,000 000 reserve
ball he kept 13. in n.y opinion, correct.
It i also tru, under the law, ns I under
stand it, that all Iejjal tender notes may be
redeemed in coin ''

noNOLCUJ, February 23 1 he present
week has witnessed scenes of enthusiasm
iu Honolulu, with a display of the stars'
and stripes probibly more getieril than nt
any time iu Hawaiian bistorj. The arri
val of tlie steamship China from S 111
Fransnco, Februarj 20, followed by th it
of the Australia, February 22, brought in
telligence tb it caused great satisfaction to
the provincial government and Americ in
party in their plans Ou the first nauted
date, when it became known that Presi
dent Harrison and his cabinet had de
cided upon a favorable course in regird to
the disposition of ihe islands, excited
throngs gathered about the main dock,
the postofheo and news stands and dis
cussed the situation The prompt action
of the administration iu the matter whs
warmly commended by Americans, irre
spective of part affiliations, a well as by
many of tlie German residents and of the
more intelligent natives Th- scene,
however, was nothing like Mint of Febru

news that the message from
President Hirrison providing for a
treaty of annexation of the islands had
gone to tho senate, and that as far 115 the
American Government was concerned they
were prooauiy a prt 01 tuf united

was tho auuiversary of the b'rth of Wash

al holida. The streets wer filled with
natives and others in their best attire
FItgs were floitmg from many buildings
and from the vessels in the harbor, the
whole forming in the bright sunlight a
pretty setting for tho introduction of thf
striking effects furnished by the steamer
from San Francisco
It is stated uuon good authority tint the
raising of the American flag over the
government building was forced upon
Minister Stevens and President Dole by
the action of the British minister in writ

asked permission Feb 10 to land a body of

the English residents desired further pro
tection. His request, however, was da
rned. The Japanese crniser Xamiwaken, after
which the United States cruiser Charles

pectedly Feb 23, making, in addition to
tbe Kongo, the Girnet, tbe Boston, the
Mohican and the Alliance, six men-of-war
Several squabbles between sailors from
the British rarhip Garnet and those from
tbe Boston and Mohican occurred ten daji

Ciptaiu VTili7e of the Boston, and Captain
Ludlow of the Mohican, promptly averted
further trouble by declining to allow any
more men to no ashore, which order was
rescinded last Saturday.
