prc.iler interest to its readers on the

being arranged for as rapidly as pos

At a first glance this would seem to
lc a sufficient answer to the (i.tcttc's
charge. Hut a second glance shots
that the diversion is merely begging
the question H hy do not the accounts
of the board of education come before
the auditor general? 'I here is nothing
in the auditing act to .show that the)
should not. Section i sajs. "All
orsons who, by an) law, regulation or
appointment, arc now, or shall li"re
alter be, charged with the dnt) of col
Ice ting or receiving revenue or other
moneys on account of the Hawaiian
Government, or with the dut) of dis
bursing nionc)s on account of the pub
lie service, shall become and be 'public
ac countants,' and shall perform all sue h
duties and render such accounts as
this act prescribes, and as the minister
of finance and auditor-general shall,
from time to time, direct." Section 5,
showing plainly the privilege of the an
dilor general to inspect and supervise
the book keeping s)stem of all depart
ments of the government, is as follows
"The auditor-general shall transmit to
the minister of financ e the name of
an) public accountant or other prison
failing to romp!) with any of the pro
visions contained in sections i, 2 and 3
of this act, and thereupon, and until
such failure shall have been made good
to the satisfaction of the auditor-gen
eral, all salary or other moneys that
may be due and payable to sue h public
accountant or other person shall be
withheld, and the auditor general shall,
from time to time, commuiiKate with
the minister of finance upon all matters
relating to the collection, receipt and
expenditure of the public moneys tinder
the operation of this act." There is
nothing in an) section of cither of the
two parts of the act from which the
above quotations have been made
which exempts the board of education
from the operation of the act. It is,
then, a matter of small moment whether
the auditor-general becomes a member
of one board or another; to accept
any office other than the one he holds
as executive of the auditing act, is to
do a distinct!) improper thing.
Hut the auditor general is hedged
about b) specific limitations, and we
charge that he has violated the letter,
as well as the spirit, of the law that
gave linn oflice. Section 16 of the act
ahead) quoted from sa)s "'I he an
ditor genera! sh ill not use, exercise or
follow an) profession or employment
whatsoever during ins tenure of office,
and shall be paid sue li annual salary as
the legislative assembly shall appro
priate, which salaiy shall not be di
minishcd during his continuance in
office." "Or employment whatever,"
is certainly specific If a position on
the board of education is not "em
ployment," what is it? Hut the auditor
genera! has not only violated the law'
by accepting a place on the board of
education, but has, sincohis acceptance
of office, either continuously or at in
tcrvals, carried on an insuiance agency
in tills city, of which, to all intents and
and qualified agent. If the king and
cabinet desire proof of this charge it
can be furnished them. Section i (
says: " 'I he king, with the
adviccof his cabinet council, may remove
any auditor general upon the ndtlrc-, of
thelegislativeassemh'y. Provided, also,
that at any time it shall be lawful for
the king, with the advice aforesaid, to
suspend the auditor-general from his
office for incompetency ormisbchavior.
"If Mr. J. S.
Walker has accepted office, honestly
meaning to discharge his whole official
duty, he will jiondcr these few facts.
Perhaps he may even consider the pro
priety of reading the auditing act care
fully. If he read, at the same time,
that excellent book of political refer
ence public opinion he will consider
the further propriety of resigning at
least one of his official positions, and
withdrawing entirely fiom outside busi
ness. The office of auditor-general is
one that depends moie on the man who
occupies it than on the statute which
created it. Let Mr. Walker remember
that a legislative act may dispense with
the office that a legislative act created.
Let him listen to rumor; with her thou

Mr William l lowerdew, a wealthy
Knglislunan, has been inclined to in
vest a large sum about $15,000- in
the expectation of being granted the
privilege of laying rails for street horse
cars in this city. The true inwardness
of this tangled talc will, doubtless, ap
pear in the trial next week. It is too
long a story to compress into a para
graph. Its proper telling would require
a page. Hut the following disagreeable
inference is already in the possession
of the public : In Ivngl.md a minister's
word is supposed to lie grounded in
honor, and based upon law. It has
been Mr. l'lowerdew's expensive ex
perience to discover that honoi and
knowledge of law arc not essential con
coinmitants of an Hawaiian ministry
under Mr. Gibson.

HoiioK Saturhav Pnrss Sir It
is given out that the first installment of
the new Hawaiian comjge is due by
this trip of the Mariposa, and that sin
cessivc installments will be rapidly
poured in upon us hereafter. It seems
to be understood that the entire balance
of the Government loan say $1,700,
000 is to be pud into the treasury
in this species of coin by those who
have taken the loan nominally at par.
It is a well known fart that the silver
bullion from which these coins are
minted costs about 82 cents on the
dollar. Allowing two cents for expense
of minting, some one will enjoy by the
operation a profit of sixteen cents on
each dollar, or $16,000 on every
$100,000. Should the operation be
extended to the entire $1,700,000, the
operators' gains will amount to the sum
This is a very considerable sum,
even in the days of rapid accumulation.
It is a vcr) heavy amount for so small
a kingdom as this to suffer the loss of.
It is probably nc.lrly or quite as much
as has been lost by the jobbery on the
ptlace, added to the Waiawa bridge,
and manifold other jobs of the present
administration In proportion to reve
nue and 'property, it is, for this
country, almost as large an amount as
that stolen from New Vork city by the
It is well understood that this profit
is not to be enjoyed by this govern
ment. We do not buy the bullion ;
we simply take the coin at par in ex
change for bur six jier cent gold bonds
from those who take up the balance of
our two million loan. The law author
izing the loan forbids the bonds to be
sold at less than par. This right pro
vision is trampled upon by this evasive
method of selling bonds at really only
8 j per cent, or 18 jier cent below par.
What persons actually have arranged
to share in this iniquitous robbery of
our treasury, it may be some time
before we are able to ascertain with
This solid slice out of our substance
we can doubtless pirt with, without
grievous distress, if our business jiros
perity continues just as we have been
able to sustain the late plunderiiigs.
It is tine that the treasury is ducfully
lean that most important and ncces
sary public works aic postponed (hat
our haihoi continues without a proper
tugboat that the long promised Pah
road is untouched , all because of
money that has been squandeied or
stolen. Still, -while our large produc
tion continues, and business rofits
keep up, doubtless we can rub along,
even with a bigger steal than ever at
hand. If the money could simply be
taken outright, and that were the end;
if we could baigain to quietly surientler'
the $273,000 in cash, and be permitted
to go comfortably along without being
choked or maimed, this would be cpiite
Hul this first operation of solid slicing
is to be only the beginning of the mis
chief. A long train of subsequent
disaster impends, altendiugthe derange
mciit of finances and unsettling of
commercial processes, by the deprecia
tion of our currency. 'I his robbery of
our treasury is planned in such a way
ns to throttle us, mid break our bones.
We have been hitherto plundeicd as
by pickpockets. Now we are to be
robbed after the manner of garrotters.
It is indeed maintained, and many,
perhaps, have been led blindly to be
lieve that these new S2 cent dollars will
be easily absoibed by the country at
I ar, along with the existing silver cur
rency. Hut we confidently jncdict that
whoever harbors such a delusive c
peciation will, very soon after the new
stream of silver pours in, be most un
pleasantly awaked from their dream b)
the wide-spread disaster of a tumble of
the entire silver currency of the king
dom to its strict bullion value, varying
from So to 8 1 cents on the dollar. Or,
in other words silver continuing at par,
and all gold disappearing, together with
standard United States dollars, foreign
exchange will go up to nearly or quite
25 percent premium, and all goods will
accordingly be marked up to that
A whole army of disturbing conse
quences will ensue, deranging to busi
ness, and perilous to social order.
Contracts will be made impossible of
fulfilment, the standaid of value upon
which they were figured having altered.
All debts and obligations not previously
fixed upon a gold basis will be thrown
into confusion. Wages must be raised,
with attendant dispute and tumult.
Employers, striving to hold contract
laborers to the terms of their contracts,
will be inevitably, and justly, met by
resistance. Jobbers and retailers will
find the enhanc ed prices of their goods
an impediment to sales. Kxprcssmcn
cannot live on their fares. The dis
turbance of silver value will penetrate
mischievously to every jiffjir ' life
I he whole commercial and social m
teiests of Hie country will experience a
shock, and stiller a constriction.
Our circulating medium has hitherto
consisted mainly of a few hundred
thousand Mexican dollars and five
franc pieces, the quantity of which has
remained stationary for some years,
furthei importations having been pru
dently checked by a piohibitorj duty.
In the face of .1 steady decline in the
price of silver, exceptionally favorable
circumstances and great care have
enabled us to keep this body of silver
at par, although now intrinsically vjorth
only iroin 80 to 81 cents on the dollar.
The whole thing is in "unstable equili
brium," and ready to plunge downward
whenever any slight addition to the
load is made, or any shock occurs.
The immense development of bust
ucss and increase of opulation have
made tossible this artificial value of
our silver It has heroine insufficient
for our needs, and has been supple
mented b United States standard
dollars, which are worth their face for
gold in San Francisco, and by Knghsh
sovereigns worth 97 cents on the dollar.
And we have the singular, and very
artificial condition of daily exchanging
80 cent silver for 97-rtnt sovereigns at
an equality. Of course this cannot
always last. A decline of cxpoits, an
arrest of profits, would at once make
silver lonablc, because coin would be
required for cximrtation. A large im
port of Mexican pr Kalakaua com, not
salable at San Francisco, will ire
cipiute the event. We might possibly
manage a very limited amount; but

want to express my approval and ap
prec iation of the rule you have adopted
for the Press, that "double column
advertisements, cuts, and large tyjies,
will not be admitted into our columns ;
neither will advertisements lie admitted
into 'rending' columns at any price."
The tiscol large job or handbill type,
and the waste of large blank spaces to
display advertisements, is of modern
practice, and is in ver) bad taste aesthet
ically as well as a fraud on the patrons
of the paper generally, who arc entitled
to interesting and instructive matter in
the spice thus uselessly occ tipiecl And
it is of doubtful utility to advciliscrs ,
since the attraction to advertisements
is by comparison, and if all were in
serted in tasteful and compict style,
die comparison would be a, real and
valuable as when all are displayed
arge type and open form,
1 Ins practice, of bad taste and
fill utility, is chiclly n modern invei
lion. I lie great London I lines, ai
all the prominent foreign pajiers, are
clear ol it.
Your "new departure" 111 that regard
ought to add largely to your subscrip
tion list, as it certainly will to the at
tractiveness and value of your columns.

Kmiou Saiuuiiay Puuss Sir: I
beg leave to reply to a letter .igned
Querist, which appeared ii the" Adver
tiser of the 281I1 instant.
If a writer possesses an honest name,
and has the courage of his or her
opinions, he or she generally appends
that name to any letter either may write
to the public press, scorning to find
shelter behind the masked battery of a
miserable pseudonym. If the writer
had put aside vague denunciations and
silly assertions, and from the standpoint
of an honest signature kept to facts
and piinuples, I would have answcied
with becoming gravity; but as it is I
must take the letter ujion its own
Poor little Querist, have you Just
opened your eyes from a long and
peaceful slumber? or do you "sec
through a glass darkly" that you fall
into such a quagmire of blunders?
Your letter bears no date, which
renders its age uncertain. You say the
"harangue" was delivered last Satiu
day evening, the latter is delightfully
vague. Altogether, the first part of
your letter shows giulcss innocence and
inconsistency truly refreshing, 'I he
address, which I think is the one you
endeavor to critizise, was delivered in

Keep 10 a pi.'in statement 01 lacis.
Firstly To put it in the stvlc
adopted by you, ' Was the so called ad
chess an original production from the
ady s pen.
The address waswrittcn by me, under
considerable pain and diffic ulty, and
the principles enunciated, though per
haps crude and ill expressed, arc mine.

the meek and lowly oppositionists,

the Algcroha Lodge ol tiood leniplars,
make use of that body as a sort of
masked battery, from which to fnc
their balls of personal hatred and
malice at the ministry, our laws and
Alas, poor ministry, poor little laws,
poor lawmakers! How flimsy, indeed,
must be vour armor, when the feeble
darts of my "politico rcligio nonsensico
harangue can so pierce it?
Thirdly "How long docs the lady

eminence? and what kind of stand
I must confess the first part of that
sentence puzzles me; but if "Webstcrian
eminence ' applies to any literary merit
that the address may have shown, then
1 am sorry to say I shall never have
the jileasurc of meeting my fiiend
Querist upon that "proud eminence."
As io the character of the stand, it is
one of plain facts, founded upon sober
colored truth, not so biilliant in hue,
peihaps, as the rainbow-tinted vapors
that make up the childish plaint of
Querist, but facts and truths arc stub
born little giants, pud have a disagree
able way of holding their own against
"stabs in the back" or in the face.
Fourthly "Is it right and pioper
that the Y. M. C. A. building should
be used rfs a discontented and disap
pointed political party spout-shop?"
What elegance of language' What
scintillation of wit! How proud the
ministry must feel at having such a
chivalrous and courtly champion I
And how withered and shrunken and
little the opposition must feel, as does

Statement of Hellcv lie Hospital Medi

Two full courses are absolutely required,
and no period of jiractice is taken as

full courses of lectures in some retitt-
arly organized college of medicine and
surgery, the last ot which must have
been in the Michigan College of Medi
cine, and pass a satisfactory examin
ation in the subjects embraced in the
college ctiiriculum." A "course" in
this college consists of "three sessions,
six months each," so that by no possi
bility, or by any amount of previous
study elsewhere except he were a
graduate of some recognized college
could a student graduate in less than
eighteen months from entering college.
