Perhaps the present condition of our
iiirrency and exchange is the best
refutation to the absurdities of Mr.
Homer's uirrcticy theory. . This has
been before the public for ome time
past, and was reiterated in a loinmuni
catiou by him in these "columns last
week. The fail that the best coin is
going out rapidly is too patent to he
refuted, and would go faster if it could
be had. 1 nstead ol the good eurrcnc)

great and sudden scarcity 9I American
coin. Failing the supply of this for
foreign settlements, exchange has rien
to a h'gh figure. The new Hawaiian
coin may be as good, intriiisicallj, as
that of the United States, but we can
not send it there to meet our obliga
tions without suffering a great loss,
through its being current there only at
its bullion talue. This shows us that
however good in theory a currency pro
ject inai be, in practice it must accord
to the usages of the nation with which
we haxe the mot intimate relations,
commercially, politically and socially
Its (oin is the basis of all our business
projects, exierinlly, because through it
our settlements are made with all the
outside world, and this intimacy
naturally makes us recognize it in all
our internal business relations.
American coin is lb" .inly one that we
can do with, advantageously, and tl,e
sooner we get on to a gold basis there
with the better it will be for us.

A circular letter to alt Hawaiian con
suls and wee consuls" has been made
public, issued on the authority of
Charles MirhieU and H. Block, of this
city. This circular asks for stibscri
tions to a fund for the erection of a
statue to King Knlakaua, to be ert-i ted
in Thomas .square, and consuls were
requested to do all in their power to
make lhe.se sulncnptinnh as large as
possible ; the chief inducement being
that each subscriber's name should be
written in a lumk of gold. Mr. Mii
aels makes the full.iwing explanation :
In Belgium, the erection of statues to
living ih. rnnjge is by no means un
common. He Marled the subscription
without the king's know-lego. He sent
the list abroad because he thought it
would be easier to get subscriptions
here if foreign ones were first secured.

But what is thu lost in the frequency
of inspections, is more than gained by
having the whole system in the 1 on
trolling hand of one who at least once
a year ha tisitcd ctery school in the
kingdom and knows the relative con
dition of each vhool, its gratlc, the
capability of the teacher, ami the 10111-
tnunity feeling toward the teacher and
hi work. And after all, with some
provision to make each school more
efficient, this annual visit is quite
enough in the circumstances to meet
the demand for this class of inspei tion.
It is not inspcition alone, or chiefly
that is needed. The country school
need the stimulus and enthusiasm that
come from gatherings of teachers for
fellowship and normal instruction. I he
kind of inspection that the inspector
general cannot accomplish by his one
annual visit, ought to lie cacted of
the school agent in each district.
There arc some radical reforms that
ought to be made, not in the direction
of remodeling our present system.
which is quite good enough in the
main, but in the direction of a better
uliiiiiiislr.il ion of present si hool regu
lations. There arc some school-agents
in the kingdom that arc working
grandly, and in their projects for the
wise improvement of the schools in
their respective districts ihey are far in
advance of the halting policy of the
Hoard ol education. But there arc
others, and some in the large centers,
whw consider their duties met m the
monthly pay nient of salaries to such
teachers as care enough for the money
to call at the agent's office for it. School
buildings wfth broken windows gape at
the tourist as he wanders about to see
the sights and general dilapidation adds
shame to our national honor. Tl'crc
has been a rctrogade movement lift he

were called together to teachers'
meetings conducted by some compe

he had attended each session unless for
good reason excused by the superin
tendent. There is an emergency in
the history of our school system. The
emphasis to be laid on elementary Kn-
glish instruction is greater every month.
In some of our plantation schools
the imported foreign element has
pushed out the I Iawaiian. The major
ity of our common schools hate several
nationalities emolled among the pupils.
I Ins heterogenous school population to
be instructed wisely and effectively
must be taught through the medium of
a single language and that for obvious
reasons must be the Knglish. I tow
urgent then is the demand for normal
class work at least twice a year in rudi
mentary Knglish instruction. One
teacher in an out-district, single handed,
iv trying to impart a knowledge of
elementary Knglish to pupils of eight
different nationalities. Does any one
believe that that teacher never feels a
craving for the .sympathy of fellow
teachers, and would not 'be glad for
helpful hints in solving the problems
of liis school-room? Few people a
preciate the difficulties in the way of
linglisti instruction in llic country
schools. Like the principal of one of
mr schools who, when asked by a new-
assistant, how she shall begin teaching
iMigltsh to a class of tlawauans said,
" Why, teach them Knglish," so some
people never think thai there must be
some method or system in such a
work. At present there are several
theories current among island teachers
as to the best method of adapting Kn
glish inunction to the schools of the
kingdom. If there are some methods
lhat have proved successful, why not
make them successful over a larger aiea
through the helpful agency of normal
lasses wtiere tiie method can lie
taught to other teachers? There are
schools where no Knglish is taught.
Could not a normal class for teachers
of such schools through elementary in
struction in pronunciation and defini
tion, gradually bring those schools into
line with the Knglish taught schools?
Let drunkenness on the part of teach
ers and the taking of unauthorized holi
days be summarily dealt with when dis
covered Make derelict school-agents
feel that their personal supervision of
the schools is compulsory, and if need
be pay such agent liberally for such
s.ipervision. Secure the best men for

The late new from Kgypl is meagre and
unsatisfactory. To piint a few of Ihe dc.
patches, hap-harard, as is the usual practice in
Honolulu, gives absolutely no clue lo the
situation. General Graham has won several
engagements, in which it has been proven that
the llritish breech-loader, with a Hrilish sol
dier hehind it, is " a navvsty thing to stand up
against, you know." Hut the problem of
what lo do with tiic Soudanese seems as far
off now as ever. In pirliamcut they are
having Satan's own time of it. The gingocs
arc clamoring for "a firmer policy" in
Egypt. Now a firmer policy means more
war, more bloodshed, more outrage upon "a
simple and ignorant people " uion n race of
fanatics, if you please, but brave men nil the
same, who owe Kg)it little and England less.
Though no one ipieslions the valor, the
integrity and the wide experience of General
Gordon, jet his exeilition is lieing scouted by
some of the Radicals and flouted by many of
the Conservatives. Foreign Secretary Gran
ville who is neither ihe one nor the other Is
reported to he in favor of recalling Gordon.
In the cabinet, dissentions have arisen and
Gladstone has been outvoted. The Marquis

'twill be merely lo play over again the old
drum and trumpet game of aggressive war,
vast promises, meagre realizations j terrible
loss of life, prodigious loss of wealth. The
debt will roll up. The Tories in power will
waste a parliament or two in trying to "ex
plain away " the most stubborn of facts ; and
will then go Into the unprogressive minority
where they lielong leaving the Liberals 10
find out how to "foot the bills." In the
meanwhile, the greatest of recent Knglish
statesmen seems likely to die of a broken
heart, killed by a nation's ingratitude.

Ennon Saiuriiav Press Sir' I have
just received and read the following paragraph
from the Press of January 19, 1S84 :
Listen to this from an American paper :
"Hear the extremely frank and dispassionate
talk of Gen. James M. Comly about the peo
ple of the cannibal islands, where he was
recently minister : ' There is no doubt that
the kanakas of the Sandwich Islands roasted
Captain Cook and ate a part of him, hut the
performance vvas a religious ceremony, and
the captain was not consumed as provender.
There i a peculiar distribution and sand
wiching of the kanakas and cannibals in Ihe
islands of the Pacific, but Ihe kanakas of Ihe
Hawaiian Islands arc not at nil suggestive of
cannibalism. They arc not, however, a useful
or desirable population, and it vvauld not be
to the disadvantage of the kingdom if the
leprosy should kill them off and leave no
testige of them.'" It seems hard to believe
lhat General Comly could bring himself to say
anything o unkiml so brutal as the thought
involved in the concluding sentence aliovc
"It M-cnis hard to Iielieve" that Ihe Satur
day Press, nr any other Honolulu publication,
should have had nny doubt whether " General
Comly" should hate used any such language
or not, in speaking "about the people of.lhc
eauiiiM itlaiiJi" "where he was recently
minister." You ought to have tilown lhat I
never Used any such language.
1 do not know what "American paper"
could have so far misunderstood or misrepre
sented me. as no American paper that has
fallen under my observation has come within a
hundred years of so far misunderstanding that
which 1 have taiil as u private citizen and
journalist, relieved from the reserve of a
diplomatic representative. What I did ay
was. substantially, as follows 1 That It wat an
error to classify the Hawaiian as "cannibal

In the Pacific Ulamls,. as shown by the writings
of Captain Cook and all oilier explorers j that
one was cannibal, anil the other not lhat ihe
Inhabitants of ihe Sandwich Islands were and

prolubly arose from the fact (which I ileihcd

some iail of Captain Cook's body, and my
recollection is lhat u wa I lie heart, was

Al.l AllOUT 1111. VARIOUS "STARS."
Auioni! the iiianr Christian missions sun
potted by the American Hoard of Commissioners
for Koreign Missions is lhal hi Mlconcfia, the
islands in the Pacific Ocean. It was begun
uianv teas aeo. has been carried on with erowt
ing success, and is in many respects one'bl llic
most Intcrisllng missions mere is. in one re
spect it has been for years n children's mission,
for one of the most usclul features in its work
ing machinery lias long been a little sliipcnlled
Ihe Morning Slar, built by aid of contributions
from the Sunday-School children ol America.
There have been three vessels of this name, all
of which did good service in plying among the
islands, carrying the missionaries and their
families from place to place as vvas required,
hearing supplies and making n connection lie
tween Ihe scattered laborers, far from Iheir
native land and dear friends, who sought to
bring the untutored and savage natives into
the light of Christian truth.
Hut the first missionary vessel which sailed
from America was not included among these
three, nor is the writer able In state whether it
was limit by the children or not. It was a very
small craft to make such a distant voyage as it
vvas obliged (o make, in order lo reach the scene
of its usefulness, lieing scarcely more than a
large sail boat. Its length was 49 feet and its
breadth 13, its measurement being a little
more than 39 tons. The departure was made
from Boston in January, 1826, James limine
well being master of the vessel. The passage
around Cape Horn, a difficult and dangerous
one lor even large shipsvvas made in salely,
though the little craft narrowly escaped ship
wreck, and Honolulu was reached in October,
the passage lasting nine months and one day,
during which tune the vessel anchored m
twenty diflcrent ports and habors.
The first Morning Star was n little brig built
in 1856. A missionary packet vvas needed for
the building of a new Morning Slar, the old
name being retained. Among the contributors,
who numbered about 150,000 were three or
four thousand Hawaiian Sunday School chil
dren. The amount eventually subscribed, to
gether with the sum rcceivcil for the old vessel,
vvas sufficient to build the new vessel needed,
the work being done In ICast Ilostou. The
entire subscriptions, when completed, amoun
ted In $28,690.37. The t csscl sailed Novem
ber 13, S60, and reaching Honolulu on March
IS, 1007, was welcomed by 2,000 ol the Ha
waiian children. Her career was useful but
brief, shipwreck on ICusaic cutting short her
usefulness on October tS, 1S69.
Attain the children were callcil upon to help
in the good work of the missionaries, and
again the response w as general and generous.
The present Morning Star, a vessel of 181
ions, was toe result, ims :iisu ueing 101 jisi
Boston craft. She- sailed Irnm llosion in 1870,
and is still in active service, having been ply
ing among the islands thirteen years. Capt,
Isaiah liray, who lias commanueii ner since
1878, is now in Ibis country on leave of
absence, and since his vacation began has been
very active in promoting the movement to
build n new ship, which took slupc soon after
his return. The mission in Micronesia has
grown, and a larger ship has been needed for
some lime. During the past two 01 three
years the Morning Star has necessarily been so
overloaded as to make her voyages very uncoin-
lortaule and somewhat dangerous, anil now .she
is quite unable to carry all that needs to be
new v csscl beine necessary, the fact was
taken into consideration in projecting plans for
such a vessel that much valuable time could be
savcel during some of the voyages by employing
steam ower in case of calm weather, and for
entering the narrow passages into the lagoons.
It was determined, therelore, that if n sum
sufficient for the purpose should be subscribed
n, new Morning Star, to be supplied with steam
as an auxiliary Kiwcr, should be built. Once
more the children have Iwen appealed to, and
once more the .subscriptions are flowing in.
The sum of twenty-five cents secures for each
subscriber a share in the new vessel, which it is
estimated will cost when completed some $45.
000, and one dime annually from each share
holder will pay the running expenses. It is
but a few weeks since the appeal for subscrip
tions was sent out, and already more than
$25,000 of ihe $45,000 needed lias been sub
scribed. In view of this lact the Hoard has
voted to build the ship at once.
Like its predecessors the new craft will be
called the Morning Star. She will be more
than twice the .sue ol the present Mowing
Star, as her measurement will be about 425
tons. She will he built at Hath, Maine, by
the New- Kngland Ship Huilding Company.
The st vie of her rig has not yet been decided
upon, hut she will probably lc a lark. The
work upon her will be done in thu most
thorough manner, she will have ample and
healthy accommodations for her officers and
crew, and the arrangement for her passengers,
both American anil native missionaries and
teachers, will be perfect in every respect.
She Is lo tie in lloton ready to hud on Sep
tember 29th, and will sail Tor Honolulu about
the first of November, making what is known
as the summer pavsagc aiound Cape Horn.
The public tlcbt reduction of the.
United States during the month of
January amounted to $1 1,(18,003, and
for the seven months ending with the
1st instant to $65,007,487, The re
duction for the same period last year
was about $95,000,000. The falling
off in surplus revenue for the past seven
months thus apiiearij lo be $30,000,000.
Should the same rate of reduction con
tinue during the remainder of the fiscal
year the surplus would pot exceed $ 1 1 2,
000,000, which would be $26,000,000
lielow that of the preceding year. The
amount of silver certificate now out
standing is nearly $07,000,000, and the
number of kilter dollars in the Treasury
not covered hy these certificates is $26,
056,717. Including fractional silver
coins, there is now on handover $151,
100,000 in silver, which, stated IA.iJ.voir
duiiois, weighs 105,400 tons.
Frank Leslie's says; "The house
banking and currency committee has
adopted a resolution declaring 'that
the public welfare demands that the
benefits of the national lianking system
be substantially preserved and continued
for the time lieing.' This action is
gratifying- as indicating that the com
mittee is not in sympathy with the de
mand for a contraction of bank circu
lation, and will not give its sanction to
the schemes for the disinief-raiion of
fie eAisting pankmg system.
