DEATH OI' fttlSVKHH HUTU.
It is sad to have to record the death of the
last but one in the direct line from Kameha
meha. Her Highness Kulh Keelikolanl died
at Kailua, Hawaii, on the 24th ultimo, in the
fifty-eighth year of her age. She was born In
Honolulu, February 9th, 1826, of t'auahi and
Kekuanaoaand was half-sister to the Kings
Kamchamcha IV. nnd V., their mother being
Kinau. Her mother, l'auahi, was the daugh
ter of Kcoua (w) and Kaolcioku (k), a son of
Kamchamcha the great by Kancikapolei (w),
and according to Ihe native method of reckon
ing chief lineage,' Ihe subject of our sketch
ranked a Wohi chicfess. During the reign of
Kamclnmeha IV, she was appointed Gov er
nes., of Hawaii, which official position she held
till shortly after the election of Kalakaua. She
had vast estates In various parts of the islands,
and much pf her time was devoted to these in
terests, though living ol late years mostly in
Honolulu. Her highness leaves no issue,
death having robbed her of her three children,
two by her first marriage with I.clciohoku, and
one by her second husband, Isaac Davis, as also
her adopted son the late prince Leleiohoku. She
was attended in her last moments by the Hon!
.Mrs. C. K. Ilishop, the Dowager Queen Kmmal
and a number of retainers, of which, in acconr
ance with her rank and station, she had a lirnjp
retinue. Her remains were broucht to Hi
city last Sunday, and the sad event, thougl
not entirely unexpected, was a shock to the
community; for a large circle of I law aiians and
foreigners alike mourn the loss of this princess,
a chicfess of the old school, of indomitable will
and marked character, good at heart, void of
all ostentation, and in many ways near to the
heart of the people.
We, loo, are fricnJ ; we love
Tlie king who loves the law, respects hit bounils,
And rein content within them. Ctnrftr,
It is gratifying to know that while there is
an individual here or there who is so obtuse
as to become apparently horrified at any but
a truckling and sycophantic mention of the
king's name, the population of these islands,
almost to a man, are fast beginning to realize
the necessity of handling that, or any other
name, as it ought to be handled; not as a di
munitivcand contemptible ring of s)Cophants
would wish to sec it. When the ro)al person
age has so far forgotten the aim anil object of
a kingly office as to take advantage of the let
ter of the law in regard to regal irresponsibility
to further personal aims, it is time the fact
were known and published, and that is only an
abject press that w ould shrink from responsi
bility in the matter. We are among those
wholwlievc that there never was nn act done
for which some one was not responsible. The
constitution of this country saysr "The per
ton of the king is inviolable and sacred. His
ministers are responsible." Hut the ministers
arc not responsible unless It is the king's wish
they should be so. In reality they may com
mil any kind of crime or abuse the confidence
of the people in the most flagrant and open
manner without a chance of punishment, If the
king but wills it so. The constitution says
that ministers may be imcachcd, but the effect
of a successful impeachment can not extend
beyond a removal from office and a disqualifi
cation from further holding any place of honor,
profit or trust. If rtnvittJ tifon imftachnitnt,
then the person "shall lie liable to indictment,
trial, judgement and punishment according to
the laws of the land." It will In-seen that if
it should happen to be the wish of the kinc
that any delinquent cabinet officer should evad
the just consequences of the law, it is onl
necessary that he be dismissed from office a
some time prior to the actual trial liefurc thi
court of nobles who are supposed to sit on tucli
occasions. In reality the king may assume on
such occasions towards the imeaehincnt tribu
nal a position analogous to that of an attorney
general in an ordinary uollt frosiqux. Further
more he may immediately thereafter re-Instate
Ihe same party and indefinitely repeal the same
process as often and as long as it is his wish to
defend him, or to retain his services. Yet the
constitution tells us that the king Is not respon
sible, but his ministers are, In reality, then,
the people have nothing to say about the ap
pointment or dismissal of cabinet officers! and
It has come to this that the king, recognizing
the fact of his own irresponsibility according to
the letter of the constitution, has determined
lo defy public opjnlou and keep in office a t
of men whom no one can cither rcscct or
trust. Upon tho same doctrine of his oh 11
irresponsibility h,e-,h been able, without
hindcrance, to directly violate in more instances
than one the very letter of (he constitution it
self where for instance it provides that "the
king conducts his gov element for the common
good, ami not for Ihe profit, honor, or private
intercut of any one man, family, or class of
men! ' and where it tayt that the JegUlalive,
executive and judicial branches of Ihe govern
ment "trull alwy be preserved distinct."
Not long since the government organ, in an
article which we have every reason lo believe
su cither wr lien by, prat the dictation of
the premier himself, came out in defence of the
king', position at an "active politician.'' It
it tbU nun who it guijing the councils of the
nation to-diyi and he U able to thumb hit
nose at the public behind the king, assumed
irresponsibility, The public have been told
that thii funJi, under the guardianship of this
kind of men, are short by over $40,000; and, to
a demand by the people thai hi disappearance
be cxpliined, noaruwer Uretii.nct., and Intuit

riom fact that a competent ami reportable
mcmlwr of the legal profession can not lc found
In thi. community who Hill accept the portfolio
of the lately retired attorney-general, and that
the cabinet by necessity Is one man short.
I!ut the conHitutlon says that the king con
ilucu hi. government for the common good.
If so, It Is scry csident that the king thinks
that the "common good" Is !cst to Ire sub
sen cd by Hiding poucr In the hands of a man
whom the people are learning more and more
to despite. Hut the constitution M)s, the king
Is sacred, and as a sacred man Is likely to choose
only sacred companions, c suppose that
(iilnon must lie sacred too. Anil the premier's
organ lielicscs that those who think otherwise,

In order to deal understanding! with the
coinage scheme, in response lo ipicrics pro
pounclcil by cituens representing the snrious
spheres of agricultural, commercial, mcchintcal
and professional life, wesought for Information
at the fountain source of the gos eminent by ad
drcssingthc "premier " a few plain, stralghtfor
ward eiucstlons on the subject. This, with its
csasivc answer, we published last week. It is
plainly cidcnt from the reply tint the govern
ment has no desire to impart knowledge on
this Important mallir, at least not In this way
It docs not suit the powers that be lo deal
with subjects directly. It docs not permit of
that diplomatic tact for which his excellency
the "premier" desires to be considered emi
nent t hence the casic reply that was signed
by Jno. M. Kapcna, as minister of finance.
"The hind was the hand of I'sau but the voice
was the soice of Jacob." Hut, seriously con
sidcrcd, cvasic though It is, it admits at the
outset that the cabinet docs not know the ap
prehension and alarm that exist in the public
mind, if the goscrnment was deluding itself
with Ihe Idea that there was no cause for such
a state of feeling as our queries implied, it can
not but know that its reply will tend in no wise
to relieve anxiety, but on the contrary will
greatly aggravate It, especially when it is
known that the final documents necessary in
the matter went forward by the last Suez. We
have reason to bcliec from this that not only
have "decisions" been "arrived at by Ihe
cabinet as lo the Issue of Hawaiian coins,"
but tint all matters of dttail to which our let
ter referred were fully known to them, )ct in
stead of their being "promptly made known
lo the public by gazette notice In the usual
manner " an effort is made to defer the evil
day of publicity. It's third paragraph is one
of such soothing contrast that fears arc enter
tained that it was mixed in by mistake or over
sight, especially when viewed in connection
with the fourth paragraph as rcpljing to our
third query. This ministerial reply would
have us believe that the coinage project was
to be one of public service only anil thit " the
amount of coin to be issued will depend here,
as it docs c cry where else, not on any edict of
the government, but entirely on the power of
the community to absorb it in its dailj trans
.actions," whereas the arrangements are com
pletcd, we are informed, for the issue of one
million dollars, which the government expects
o receive by aliout the first of July. 1'urthcr
more, Ibis issue is reported to be entirely a
silver one, for which bonds of the recent loan
act, at par, have been taken. When the inner
workings of this scheme become known, as
they will at no very distant day, the public
may then sec why the cabinet failed to answer
the plain, straightforward questions we pro
pounded. The evidence even now indicates
that they dare not. To cover their discomfiture,
itwasinferredthatour enquiry was not a suitable
channel for subjects on which business men
entertained apprehensions. The members of
the ministry are vv ell aware of the right of pub
lic journals to inquire into and deal with all
questions of public interest. If we, or any of
our correspondents, have been misled by erro
neous information in the treatment of this sub
ject, and if injustice is dealt it in any particu
lar, the government has only itself to blame.
It is indirectly admitted, in the evasive reply
before us, that the government firm is to have
a supply of new coin; but as to quantity, qual
ity, cost and manner of payment, a discreet
silence is religiously preserved. The public is
not to sec the invoice, though it will be per
mittcd to purchase the new goods when at
hand at a profit to somebody. Mr. Kapena'.
master, the senior partner in what a corres
pondent aptly terms " the opposition shop",
has too much craft to try and explain the law
or say wherein it has been or may be iolated,
He is now attorney-general, and i. far too cun
ning to show to the country how much he docs
not know about " the statute laws of the king'
dom," to which his querist is referred as if
any one could tell by Ihe law what the govern
ment is likely to do. The act to provide for a
national coinage, passed in 18S0, says:
It shall be lawful for the minister of finance.
and he is hereby authorized to purchase gold
and silver bullion with any moncyt which may
from time to time It in the treasury, nnd tn
cause to be coined therefrom gold and silver
The coins are to be "of equal weight and
fineness wilh United Slates gold and silver
coins of same values." It was evidently n
tended that the government should purchase
the bullion with money, and, if there was any'
thing made out of it, the public, through the
treasury, would get the profit. Has this
f statute law " been complied wilh? Current
report say. -a million dollars in government
lionds, issued under the new loan act, arc to
lc paid for with a million silver dollars, new-
a evunagc, at jiar, wait tnc ministry unit a
lr statute law authorizing such a transaction? The
n act to authorize a loan states what use may be
made of Ihe money borrowed, and also that
the Iwnds are " to be issued at not lett than
par." Hut if there it any ttatute law of the
kingdom authorizing the exchange of those
Iwndi for bullion, or uncurrent or depreciated
coin, Ihe ministry will do the public a service
by calling attention to such law or laws.

KniTOR .Satl'udav I'rf.ss Sir It is to
l)C regretted that his excellency the minister of
finance should have been prevailed upon to
ccade the reasonable questions which jou, tn
tnc interests 01 cverj individual tn this com
munity, were pleased loask him iqion the
coinage and currency questions. It is simply
courteous to supjiosc tint the minister, In
making his reply lo your letter, acletl indepen
dently. Most assuredly he will le held res
ponsible for his letter.
The questions imolvcd arc those which
most affect the buyers and sellers, or in other
words, every person in this kincdom. I ad
mit that it is a hard mailer to convince some
people that they have any interest in these
questions, but when it is too late the matter
wilt be as plain as a pikestaff.
The importation of one million silver dollars
will seriously alTcd our exchanges with the
united Males, where our sugars arc sold and
the most of our coods are purchased. It re
quires no prophet to predict that prices will be
-advanced for all goods, more particularly staple
Ilv the premier's paper I sec that it is pro.
posed to issue certificates of deposit for these
dollars, anil this proposition Is stimiosctl to do
away with the complaint ot weight and milk.
Hut what authority lias the minister of finance
to issue certificates of deposit for the general
funds in the treasury? I'ven if the certificates
were authorised they arc not lcinl lender any
more than the dollars will be. Possibly the
minister propose, to take the American gold
and silver coins now In the treasury as special
iieiosits lor the purposes ol the treasury, and
put In their slcad those silver dollars.
Holders of treasury certificate, should lake
warning and exchange their certificates before
the silver coin arrives.
Hut, possibly, Ihe premier will make these
dollars a legal tender by the assistance of the
legislative assembly, In which case he may
suppose thit all questions will be answered
and difficulties settled. The premier cannot.
however, fix Ihe maximum rate at which goods
shall le sold; and, until he can, the coinage
and currency questions arc burning ones tome.

DuroR Saturiiav Press Sir: Proba
bly Mr. Thrum knew the person addressed too
well to expect an honest straightforward reply
to hiscomprchcnsivcand pertinent inquiries con
cerning the coinage. For it must have been long
since apparent to him, a. it Is lo many others,
Jhat those now occtip)ing I will not say fill
ingthe high office, of government 110 not
consider themselves servants ol the nation, but
servants of their own immediate interests, and
of those who arc able and willing to promote
those interests. In short, the government
has become an "opposition shop," .0 to speak;
and, in order that it may succeed with the
"tricks of the trade, the public, which has to
"foot the bills," must not be allowed "behind
In the matter of Mr. Thrum's queries, it
suited Ihe foreign minister best to peimit the
minister ol linancc to sign the reply, winch
was evidently "cooked" in the foreign office,
in order to save the foreign minister Ihe trou
ble of inconvenient explanations hereafter.
As it i. generally understood that the foreign
minister has "a finger in every pie," and as
sume, lo be "running" everything, it was very
natural that anv innuirv meant to elicit infor
mation should have been addressed to the self
constituted "boss." And, practically, the an
swer is from the one addressed, for while the
voice i. the voice of John the hand is the hand
John doesn't know of any "grave apprehen
sions" in the public mind regarding the coin
age. Why should he? Has his shop anything
to lose? Has there not .0 far alwa). been
cnottch in the treasury to nay his salary and
those of his partners, if only they called early?
S.011HI lie lie expected to understand that the
public, which Is lamely interested in the busi
ness, and currency of the country, and hence in
the new coinage, may have very grave appre
hensions without hurriedly making any great
demonstration; that wise men consider well
and try to know the facts of the situation be
fore they determine what to do, so to avoid
mistakes, if possible; or that a deputation of
merchants, planters, bankers or others waiting
iixn him to express their fears and ask for
relief is about the last thing likely to happen.
There have been so many rumors about the
coinage and sale of bonds, arising from state
ments made by those in authority, that no
liotly knows whnt to lclice; nnd, no doubt,
that fact led Mr. Thrum to make inquiry in
the interest of the public. The public needs
to know the facts; and "gazelle notice" is not
)et forthcoming. A respectful reply to a
courteous set of queries might have given the
information "in a nutshell." This respectful
reply the government has chosen to refuse, anil
the public must draw its own conclusions.
A Looker On.
xitt: vjcoi'ost:i coixaok.
Editor Saturday Press Sir: This sub
ject merits the fullest consideration and most
exhaustive discussion liy our business com
munity, of any of the jiolitical probabilities
now impending. Hy Chapter XXXIII of the
Laws of 1SS0, the issue of gold and silver
coins corresponding in weight and denomina
tion with the most popular American coins is
authorized. Hy act of (he American Congress,
any person is at liberty to deposit bullion at
any United States mint and nave it coined
into standard coins at a practically nominal
expense. Owing to the low intrinsic standard
of the American dollar in particular, those
coins may be secured by such depositors of
bullion at a gost of which I am not precisely
informed, but ranging somewhere between
ninety and ninety-four cents. In other words
a standard silver dollar contains no more than
ninety-four cent? worth of silver, including
cost of coinage. Vet, by the grace of statute
law, such coins are legal lender in the Upitcd
Slates, converlable info silver certificates,
which, in turn, pass current as a substitute for
grcenliacks (representing -cold), the latter bv
virtue of the demands and conveniences of
tratlc in that vast community of traders, living
so much within themselves in that particular.
Now, if it be considered desirable that we
have a coinage based upon the intrinsic stand
ard of the American sjstem, (and there occurs
to niy mind no decisive argument to either
favor or forbid such a x)licy, if put in rational
practice) the question of what device th6 coins
shall bear become, of vital interest, anil,
vicvved-In this light, we may perhaps discover
the milk in the governmental cocoanut.
Hy coincidence of the statutes of lioth
nations, our government is at liberty to secure
an issue 01 American coins, man wnicn no
other kind should or can consistently with our
business interests be thrust upon us. Hut our
statute, referred to, provide, that coins issued
by virtue thereof may bear any device the king
may feel pleased lo prescribe. Late dispatches
from Washington inform us lhat dies arc in
course of preparation, at the Philadelphia mint
tor the proposes! Hawaiian coinage, being the
impress of Kalakaua'. face and the Hawaiian
coat-of-arms. It remain, then to consider the
ctTcct of foisting upon this community a vol
ume of coin whose value fall, from six to ten
per cent below it. nominal worth, and which
wjll not, by virtue either of it. own Intrinsic
merit or any statute law, be accepted by
foreign dealers, upon whom we are dependent
for every article of food, apparel and oeneral
domestic and commercial equipage (with a few
trilling exceptions) which we cat, wear, or
use. The first natural sequence of such a
course will be to appreciate the comparative
value of American and other standard foreiim
coin, place it at a premium, and, o a logical
result, drive it from general circulation, Thi.
accomplished, our business Interests will be
more than ever at the mercy o brokers and
money changers, as regard, foreign exchange,
Ti. true that, at present, for a number of rea
sons, chief among which It a favorable balance
of trade, even the depreciated coin now in
circulation will purchase foreign exchange at
face value, but let our export, of native pro
duce fall below the value of necessary import,
(a. by the mercurial laws of trade, and especi
ally the uncertainly surrounding our treaty
prospects, it not improbable,) and the prac
tical effect of a currency which cannot be
utilized abroad will at once be felt. Il will
cramp and cripple Ihe body commercial a. do
green mangoc or cucumbers the body physical.
The question then arises, why incur the risk
of commercial tost and misfortune hy the issue
of a coinage for which not cvn the premoni
tory tyniptorut of a neceuity exist, and of in
fcrior.value, wfcwi, upon terms equally favor,
able, a currency bearing the American Hamp,
of practically greater, ami comparatively Im
mutable value may he tecured ? I trut may

Editor Saturiiav I'rrs. Sir " The
Other Side," the planter's side of the lalwr
question was-certainly presented In your issue
ol last week "cogently. lam not prciarcil
to question the accuracy of the position assumed
by your correspondent " Alteram l'artcm,"
that the planters arc i)lng already more for
lalnr than the Income from the plantations
fairly justifies. Hut If that i. so they ought to
do one of two things! cither explain the situa
tion to their employee, and have it understood
that good wages will be paid when dividends
liccomc possible, or else sell out to some one
having the necessary skill and capital success
fully to prosecute the necessary work.
That may sound harsh. Hut It is less harsh
than the " other side " Is selfish. " Does any
man or class of men engaged in business ever
study the prosperity of ihe country in the way
they do their business?" asks "Alteram Har
lem. " It is high time they do so study. It Is
Ihe " look out for number one" policy that Is
plajing the mischief right here, now. If the
general welfare was consulted none would suf
fer as indiv iduals; but a few w ould cease to grow
rich at the expense of the many.
The other side " heartily " hopes for " real
government." It will conic when the "clan
baxon " pulls together and demands it. The
native vole may be controlled for good as well
as for evil. The devil nf place hunting and
Itgislaturc-making may lie fought w ith just as
cllectivc weapons as he and his disciple, use.
If the " oilier side " really wants good gov
ernment, and the planters are really In sym
pathy with his views, they can hive it on one
condition thai Ihey arc willing to make sacri
fice, fully as great as other classes of emiat in
terest, to secure that end. Hut I donot believe
that the planters are so selfish as their cham
pion would have us believe. I'air I'lav.

It is quite a common thing to sec whole,
and broken, bottles lying on the public streets,
which have been thrown there by persons care
less of the rights of others. So little has been
done to prevent this dangerous practice, that it
is becoming almost daily more common, and
many serious foot wounds to pedestrians and
to horses have been a consequence. Very re
cently, a native woman was cut so badly by
treading on the splintered base of a broken
bottle lying on the sidewalk, that her life was
in immediate danger, and she would probably
have died from hemorrage had not competent
surgical aid been close at hand. The m'an that
throws a lioltlc into the street, whether whole
or broken, commits a common nuisance, and
is liable to prosecution ; and, if death or in
jury results, as a consequence of such act, the
offender is not only morally responsible but
amenable to the law both civilly and crlmi
nally. Police vigilance in this matter might
prevent the practice to a greater extent. At
tention to such things a. these is of vastly
more importance to the public than the style
or color of uniforms, or the methods of salute
upon which so much attention has lately been

TWO SUPERB ETCHINGS
On porcelain placques, by well known European artists.
One s a marine, 1690, by Haiti l. in sepia, and one of
the best examples of this most delicate and wonderful
art, which Is new undergoing such a spirited revival in
the United btates and Europe. The drawing in this
picture Is exceptionally good, and the Chlaro-oi-cura ef
fect very cleverly handled. The other represents a
coast scene, by Mart mo, which Is particularly noticeable
for its free and unconvcntionable ti eat ment and the
delicate distribution of tints. These are the first etch
ings on porcelain ever exhibited In Honolulu, and are
well worthy of a visit.
