OUR SAN FRANCISCO LETTER.
SAN fRASCIsco, N'ovemlr to, 1881.
Editor Satlmiay Press; With the ihct
motnctti so low that one hit Init little interest
thftcin, ami trtcrcuati, heavy clotlici and fires
a necctsltv, while the sun ht to be prterl up
with a crowbar to make nothing like an early
Aptiearance, one would fain "take in" a little
Honolulu warmth ami sunshine these chill
dap rarlnl only by a change of wind, which is
our disagreeable "norther" drifting dust and
anil, drying up all the moisture ami having
but one redeeming riuility, that of being
usually the forerunner of a shower and ssl
lily a rainstorm.
M WTIOV VATTFR,
The cant phrase which ha now lcomc In
corporated into tscr)ilay com citation, "It's a
cold day when I get left," creates a smile as
referring to what ha Ix-cn slen of as an
election, said to hate licrn held lately In these
United States of America in thirty sii or more
staid simultaneous!), and If it lie true that
there was an election I should judge that the
republican party hail reccited two black eyes
from each state, and like any human sulTcrcr
on receiving a complete and satisfactory thrash
Ing ami a deserved one, ton, accepts the result
without murmur, ami in this connection it may
be stated that the rout Is so thorough there is
no room for argument, and instead of discus.
sioiu between the adherents of each party.
there prevails the utmost good nature, and we
of the republicans think the effect In our future
will lie to produce a new aity whose strength
shall I In the liest elements called from both
democrats and republicans) so mote it bcl
Hut one month ami Christmas will le uinn
us, bringing glad hearts to many little ones,
many happy anil, to too mail) others, sad re
minders of Christmas celebrations. Our stores
are preparing for the harvest, windows dressed
In glowing colors ami atlraclise goods, papers
filled with advertisements which take columns
to sufficiently set forth alt the wonders to lie
bought at fabulously low prices at this or thai
palace, for all are palaces so fir ns rents and
general csix-nses are concerned. Dry goods
this )ear are unusuall) interesting liecausc
sensible in their texture and reasonable in
price, and when one can get tight (8) button
glotcs for $1.2$ per pair its a wonder the)' are
not adopted for stockings as lieing more
durable, certainl) quite striking, and the idea
at least original tuu u yet no iatcnt. Ilooki
and fanciful stationer) arc making their ap
pearance, many old standard works lieing
prominent In lovely bindings and at a er) low
figures) cncaclop-edias, dictionaries and books
of reference are put up in sets as presents for
thoe who wish at one-half the original cost
of sulncription. Umbrellas which were con
sidered reasonable In Honolulu at Mclncrny's
for $6 are selling here, according to quality of
silk, from $2 to $7 the prices from $.( to $7
including handsome isory handles, and
where the profit comes in Is not Apparent, as
not many years ago the same article sold here
for $10 and upwards. China and glassware
in such lewildcring combinations of lieaut),
elegance and fragility that one Is at their wits
end to select, may lie found at Law ton's anil
Nathan's, while tliedisplaj of flowers done in
Dresden china attracts great attention, some of
the specimens basing all the delicacy of tint
and texture, needing but the etfume togisc
realization to these most lwautiful piiccs of
General trade continues without marked
change, merchants holding their own with no
claim of overstocks or overwork, generally con
ceding this approach of holiday season as more
properly belonging to retail dealers. No devi
ation in values has occurred worthy of note
since my last.
Kresh fruits in their late profusion and vari
ety are now narrowed down to a few, the best
being sold at advanced rates and in small
quantities; dried fruits, consisting of plums,
eacjies, apples, apricots, cherries and raisins
meet with read) sale, and the thousands of
tons shipped from our state arc far lieyuml the
expectation of many who have not noted the
outgo, or read the proceedings of the fruit
growers' convention now lieing held, which is
a very iuivoitant factor in our future and Is
attracting considerable attention; in fact, with
our facilities for suppl)ing the world with
fruits, and the constant improvement in our
wines, there will for many )ear lc nn excel
lent and remunerative opportunity for young
and active men to secure occuiatlon all
through the southern section of this state at an
investment of small means with quick returns.
In stocks, that is sugar stocks, I note about
the same figures fur Hawaiian Commercial,
Ixing sold, so far as quotations go, at 3l,
with dividend resumption a matter for the
future to determine. Hakalau, with its divi
dend of a dollar, docs not seem to get upon the
boanlsat this writing, while llceia, probably
awaiting the return of Ncisscr, lungs off for
the present 1 and may well justify the remark
of one of our residents who sap the price and
activity of Heela has been a matter of great
surprise to all the Honolulu people. For the
life of me I cannot see why stock inv estors
cannot as well have faith in plantations of
sugar, about which they know nothing, as to
W certificates of amine which has a name
but hardly a local habitation, white from the
former they have tangible fruits, though the
ocean may roll between their Investment and
A NATIONAL LOAN.
I have not heard ct if all the Hawaiian
loan has lwcn placed. I presume the rate of
iDtefcst ts satufictory, but as to the solidity of
the security for Its principal,- there remains
some question, 1 had thought of taking half
(he amount myself for the sake of old acquaint
anceship, but feeling some doubt on that score,
declined. Had hoped to witness the grand
coronation, though as )rt have received no
Invitation, but as gloves ate the costume, pre
sume I could go on short notice.
In aniutcuient we have nothing worthy of
the name. The California gave "The While
Slave" for the last time Saturda) night, ami
tomorrow commence with "Geraldine," a
thoroughly new Irish drama. "Uncle Toiu'a
Cabin," with the bloodhounds, takes a new
lease of life at the I j rami Opera House tomor.

cents atvl 75 cents, the latter lor a teamed

Riving many an opportunity to witness coloring
whose delicacy ami naturalness is seldom
found In our country. The place of exhibition
having lieen arranged expressly for the display
of pictures, has every convenience that light
can suggest, and the rooms have been crowded
every day and evening. One very amusing
feature of this all has been the comment of
would be critics, who prolably know as much
aUmt such a collection as the average Amerl
can docs of Choctaw, calling attention with
glib pencil to the Incorrect attitude drawn b)
the great Kaflaclte or Itubcns, criticising color
ing and expression, and lastly, questioning the
reliability of it all, when the collection, worth
perhaiis $150,000, has an European reputation
which the ink-slingers cannot injure nor rev
vmably endanger. I'rolnbly they are insti
gated by local dauliers, whose bad pictures
have flooded our auction rooms for years, and
whose efforts require gaudy frames to meet
with ready or for col sale.
It Is gratifying to meet so many of your
good people, and all looking lieltcr for the
change. I'armelce, of llollister .1 Co., and
Scarliorough both own up to an Increase of ten
pounds each, while the improvement in color
is noticeable in Iwth also. And talking of
your people, Mr. (J. Irwin, shorn of his Wil
liam, appears in print as champion of )our
peculiar Institution, his utterances receiving
sufficient attention In Chicago to be wired to
our dailies, proving the red (lag to the terrible
Chnnitli Imll with the usual bellow and howl,
Init how much more It would have howled
had it known who this "G. Irwin" was. Dc
poncnt darclh not prognosticate, but believe
the fur would fly whether or no.
W'c arc alwut to lose our most brilliant
preacher, Mr. John Hemphill, of whose nntici.
paled resignation vou have doubtless heard j
and which Ins now lieen accepted, and a call
extended loMr. Spreckcr of Oakland, a )oung
man of great promise and to whose efforts the
Oakland people have given great credit, but
who are not at all pleased with the call to the
older church. I think Mr. Hemphill, In hii
frankness, has stated a cause for change which
should more often lie acted upon that is, has.
ing worked hard for many ) ears, accumulated
much brain work, and that during the best
years, he felt as though a position calling for
less mental strain, with all these written ser
mons to assist him, his years of usefulness
could 1 extended, and while the pastorates of
fifty) cars duration arc Incoming out of fash
ion, it seems .as though his stay with us hail
Dccn lull) up 10 the average. Ul one thing 1
am assured; he is not afraid to speak the pure,
unadulterated gospel, and thai alone, if noth
ing else, should command respect. Talking
of preachers, I trust )our Mr. Cruzan continues
still in health and speaks what I call good
"United States" language as of )orc. Yours,

The alioi e questions were asked by the Eltlt
TmHIu a few weeks ago, and as a citizen of
Hawaiian birth having vsaited for sonic wicks
for an answer to them by the Elite without
success, I wish to call them up again for the
purpose of answering them; for I noticed
that in replying on these points to the argu
ments of the Ju A 111a the Elite did not make
any satisfactory or rational answer to the !
Aina as to the reason why flilison's son in-law
had an increase of salary. This action of the
ministr) is mere!) an utter squandering of the
money of the government. Perhaps it will lie
said that this money was appropriately spent
ln-causc of the great amount of wofk done by
this son In-law, in travelling aliout and looking
into the condition of the nation and observing
matters here and Iherc.
Well, if this is the ground for the advance
of salary of the son-in-law, it is the most
fraudulent and shameless trick of all. I have
been informed b) .a friend that this son-in-law
of Gilison made a tour through our Islands to
look into the condition of the people of our
country. This is a good-for-nothing piece of
business. Where did the son In-law study
medicine that he should have the check to pass
himself 11IT as a medical man in such a tour?
This is merely jmuring out money with no re
turn. This reminds one of the acllon of a cer
tain blind man of whom it was said "he could
not see if he was blindfolded."
Now, if this is the kind of work, to send out
the son in-law of Gibson to affect the character
of a ph)sician, it were better to have an end
of this business, and that Gibson and his col
leagues sivcnd no more money. ,
To the question raised abov c I answ cr that
this work of the cabinet is only a money-wast.
ing piece of business, seeking their own per
sonal good while oppressing the people. I
have lived a good many ) ears, and I .know
very well that in past years the pay of the
sccritary of the board of health was only a
fraction of this large sum which this laiy, In.
efficient son-in-law receives. Kuotea, A'n

THE TREASURY Or THE NATION.
The department of finance of the Hawaiian
government has for its head a certain Hawaiian
who is thought much ofj but his picture is set
up as a jumping-jack to amuse the multitude,
and what do we, see? For many months past,
and since the proroguing of the last I.egUla.
ture, it has been a rare thing to see the minis
ter of finance. He lias not lieen much seen at
his office. Very many persons have desired to
consult him on matters of business relating to
his office, liut he was not to be found there,
and they had to go away unsatisfied.
It has been reported to us Out the auditor
general has greatly needed to confer with the
finance minister on official business, but has
not been able to obtain an interview with hlmj
and that concerning all that business In regard
to espenditurea, which the law relating to the
auditor generalship and Ihc office of finance
commands shall be done by them jointly, it
has been Impossible for them to meet ami dis
cuss. And why i. this? The reason isAhat
the minister of finance has got lost or gone
astray. Perhaps he has strayed away onto the
plains, of perhaps he lias fallen Into a pit,' If
the othce cannot be hllesl In an honorable
manner by the present incumlienl, li It not
liest for the King to request h!m to return; his
commission? In our wish for the prosperity
Hawaii we feel that this Is the only proiwt
course for the King to pursue.
It Is an utter disgrace to the ration and to
the government to bchfcld this seemingly great
man, one who U also the head uf one of the
iltpattinent of the government, misconducting
himself fn (he sigh) of the multitude, rctliug
about like lowlived boor. As lovers of Ha
waii, and jealous of her honor, vte have lieen
brought to sliauM by the strange antics of the
minister of finance.
When Kaiyrttjrrinra IV, m KlfC. minis.
let of finance who was guilty of drunkenness
la public was discharged without delay. Is
no, laal good example to follow? Would It
not be sign of good government on the tun
Laf uW Kusg Jsn hki lo turn out heads of dc
ifiWnt who were corrupt and, debauched in
tbtir arts aad given up to drunkenness and
otWf vice? Would it not cause the King's
govenusMtU to be UeU U whoksutst (ssr far
turning out of office such men as this be a use
ful lesson to the! Kings own countrymen, that
justice, purity of life ami Intelligence were
the qualifications the King sought in appoint
ing government officers? Would not the King's
discharging such heads of government as this
lie .a proof of his desire that the )outh of his
own race should live clean lives and seek real
We feat Ihat some of our Hawaiian friends
may misunderstand us, for he Is Init one, birt
wearemah). True he Is 1ml one, )ct in his
hands Is great property belonging to us. He Is a
steward to care for the public nirse, and it Is
our dut), on behalf of the people, to utter with
independence and without concealment our
thought on this matter, that the officials who
have no love and no care for the great public
interests they now hold may lie put out of
office. Kneieti, Ner. sj, 1SS1.
