The last New York Observer sas
that a novelty in printing is noted by
the Ait Age as having appeared at Am-
lieim Mall and called " He Harmonic
in de Haeckdenkunst," or harmony in
the ait of printing books. The paper
is light green, the print blue, the en
closing lines brown. The paper (overs
are cream colored, with red and black
lettering and narrow border. The theory
of the publishers is that pale green
paper with the blue print is less trying
to the eyes than the white and black
page, which dawles somewhat as a
snowy landscape does, and makes it
self seriously felt with persons who have
to read constantly. Another combina
tion suggested is red or brown in soft
shades. One hundred copies of the
book have been printed for private dis
tribution to a restricted list, beginning
with the crowned heads of Holland,
Belgium, England and Roumania.

The reform party in Hawaii to-day
is suffering from a redundancy of tool
lusks. Hut quite as much it suffers
from sheer selfishness. Almost as a
unit the intelligence of the kingdom
desires good government. Hut it wants
'good government" with an "if." Mr.
Hlank is a large land owner. He says :
"What shall I do to make my holding
the most profitable ? " That is his first
and great inquiry ; and the second is
like unto it : "Docs not my duty begin
at my own line fence?" So he wants
reform if he can have it without pre
judice to his own grat interests. Mr.
Dashe is a planter. He says : "How
shall I make my crop net me the best
returns ?" He loo is a patriot if his
patriotism docs not interfere with his
duty to himself. Mr. Starre is a mer
chant. Thus his self-questioning :
"How am I to get rid of this stock of
goods ?" To the profitable answering
of that question he bends all bis ener
gies. He is for good government,
"fust, last and all the time" if his "fur"
be not "against" the interests of his
bank account. Says Mr. Editor and Pro
prietor : "How shall I increase myub
scription and advertisement lists?''
He is for leform, sinion pure itform,
KirOKU in small caps his "duty
to himself and his family" does not
make it clear that to uphold both sides
of a question (i. c, the rght ide and
the wrong side) is also his duty to the

the acrlmong and irrelevant personalities of
the past few ilsys. Ycrily, there is need for
"llie breath of freedom" to course through the
public affairs of the nation.
The Bulletin is edited by a gentle
man who impresses those who meet
him as sincere. His newspaper experi
ence has been considerable and his
talents arc evident in the conduct of
his journal. Hut we think the editorial
printed above evidences lack of judg
ment, lack of consistency and lack of
generous journalistic dealing. We write
ihis in the full belief that Mr. Logan
will meet our criticism in the jpirit of
The first five sentences of the edi
torial are eminently sound. We have
advocated the doctrine therein laid
down not onlyin regard togoverntnen
tal affairs, but in regard to such semi-
public affairs as the deliberations of the
chamber of commerce. We think the
doctrine cannot be gainsaid.
The sixth sentence, beginning "A
secondary and more undesirable result,'
is what from another pen might
seem a cowardly attack upon tne
Morning Guide. Wc think Mr. Logan
wrote it, or permitted it to appear,
without due consideration. The cap
does not fit ; it is labelled for one who
does not purpose to wear it ; but the
application to the Guide's castigation
of the registrar is so plain that he who
runs may read. Whether the writer of
the Guide article is or is not a person
"lacking in moral and mental balance"
it is certainly unjust to write of him as
"failing to obtain material for a dis
cussinn of the merits of the question."
We refer to the files of the Press and
Guide for a full vindication on that
count. In all the long discussion of the
Hawaiian Currency problem the Satur
day Press has not been behind any of
its neighbors. Is it not fair to assert
that it has led them? With one excep
tion, we have advocated no measure of
importance connected with the cur
rency debate that has not been justi
fied (or, if not yet settled, apparently
justified) by events. The exception
was our approbation of the chamber of
commerce in agreeing to accept treasury
certificates as the equivalent of gold,
Events have shown that move gener

'Ihe declaration (unsigned) Is to the effect
that II s Hawaiian Majesty's Uuvernmsnt, be
ing deeply concerned at the anxiety of the dear
people because treasury certificates were not
so gooil as gold, hat resolved to make them
good by depositing a uniform 0 per cent, of
silver, in excess of the silver already deposited,
in order to mike silver-hacked cenlficitcs as

It taket the entire pecSple of the islands into

I am very glad, and trut that the naughty
op(otition press whllewitnessing the affect
ing spectacle of the government and Ihe people
weeping in each other's arms, will put on the
sack cloth and sit down in the ashes of genuine
repentance. The dear people have always be
lieved themselves "taken in," but they didn't
know it was a "confidence" game before.
Indeed, in our judgment, ministers go fur

because no one estr seriously doubted the bona

Indccdnoone(inthcg.g.)did. The good faith
of the government's financial policy has been al
ways acknowledged by the Advertiser and the
ministers themselves and why additional
endorsement ? '
In dtference, however, to an cxaggera'ed
suspicion on the part of local financiers, be
gotten of prejudice, the government has gone
the length of more fully explaining the pro
vision ihey have made for redeeming out
standing silver certificates, and exchanging
the silver on special deposit for redemption
purposes into its gold equivalent. lhat pro
vision renders redemption on a gold basis an
absolute ccrtaints. Nothing more than this
could be desired by the mott rabid monomet
alist, and we trust that in future this vexa
tious question will not disturb ihe equilibrium
of lacal finance.
The "rabid tnonometalists" have already
wiped the foam from their lips and are even
now howling themselves hoarse with joy in
front of the various ministers. The "equilibrium
of local finance," assured that it will not be
"disturbed," has probably, by Ihis time, gone to

who control credit institutions will have the
industries and trade of the country in the hoi
low of their hand. They will be at once king,
ministry and assembly, without that retnonti
bility for their acts which should always
accompany the exercise of power.
The "monetary equilibrium v has already
been reached. The wicked idolalort whu
wanted to "exalt gold" have all been pun
ished. Silver no longer "debased to token
money" has gone out to WaiklU lo breakfast
with the "utio of exchange." And ihe
nauphly "credit institutions" who wanted lo
be "Vingi ministert and assembly," have
opened Ihc "hollow of their hand " and have
permitted the "industries and irule of the
