A short lime ago it was reported
through the newspapers that the new
Secretary of the United States Treasury
would issue another bond-call which
would be paid out of the surplus
of $10,000,000 which had lately accu
mulated. The questibn which now at
tracts our attention is Why has this
call not been made ? This surplus re
serve consists of gold and silver bullion,
gold and silver coin, and bank-noks.
fractional silver roin etc The re
serve fund is largely comjiosed ot
standard dollars and fractional silver
currency. In case this new call was
made a "run" on the treasury might
follow ; in that case the standard dol
lars and fractional silver would not be
available and a crisis would le precipi
tated unless encroachments were made
on the nold in the treasury which tias
been set aside by law for oilier purjioics.
Secretary Manning shows a wise head
in nuking a thorough examination be
fore he issues a new bond-call, to sec
that there will be enough gold in the
treasury reserve to meet one of the
practical remits of the baneful silver
system. Of course this has no possible
application to the present state of Ha
waiian monetary affairs.

have observed his public cuccr are
quite well aware. The fact is Lord

princ.iplcs and high-toned associations
is a kind of aristocratic Hen Huilcr,
The two men, notwithstanding their
difference in age, training and circum
stances, have a gtcat deal in common.
There is the same vigorous and pictur
esque style of rhetoric, extremely forci
ble and 1101 particularly refined, the
Yankee licing- the more logical of the
two and the Knglishman abounding
more profusely in slang. There is the
same lose for striking attitudes and
saying things to create a sensation.
There is also the same quickness to
sec a point and readiness to make the
most of it and the same willingness to
ignore facts and resort to sophistry
whenever it may sccin to serve the pur
Iosc. There is this difference however, that
(icneml Duller as a leader of "yc fierce
dcmocrncic" is quite in harmony with
his environments, while Lord Randolph
Churchill as a member of the conserva
tive aristocracy is decidedly out of
harmony with his. He is altogether
too lively for the company he keeps
and must be a sad trial sometimes to
the more judicious of his friends and
political associates. With his active
and mercurial mind and his equally
aaivc and somewhat caustic tongue he
is constantly liable to be getting them
into hot water. We have great faith in
both the fighting and the ruling quali
ties of our Hrittsh cousins. Wc con
sider the Hritish empire in India to be
both in a military and a civil sense, one
of the most magnificent achievements
of modern times. Hut we remember
that within our own day the British
power nas nau 10 contend witii one
Indian mutiny, which although almost
if not quite confined to one of the three
great department into which the In
dian empire is divided, required con
siderable time, a larijc amount of
money .and the services of several times
four regiments for its suppression. Wc
respect patriotism and we admire pluck,
but this kind of foolish talk about one
Englishman trashing two or three hun
dred Orientals, particularly when the
latter arc organized and well armed, is
quite unworthy of Hritish lords. Recent
events in the Soudan, however glorious to
the Untish arms, afford no foundation
for such overweening confidence.

'Hie bulletin thinks it a matter " lo
be highly commended" that the presi
dent nf the Hoard of Health has caused
the Liurctto at Kakaako to be sur
rounded by a tongue and grove lioard
fence in the place of the former open
one, through which " friends'of the in
mates have been able to converse,touch,
and even exchange pipes with them."
We rather incline to the onosjte view
of the Uulletin correspondent, signing
himself X, that this is a useless and silly
eicnse aside from the question of in
humanity in blocking 6ut tlfe vfeW of
the unfortunate inmates and rendering
their condition less healthy by thus
obstructing the free circulation ol air.
As that correspondent suggests, it would
have been infinitely better on account
of health considerations and equally
effective as regards ihe prevention of
communication with healthy crons
outside, as well as much cheaer, to
have built a second fence either several
feel inside or outside, of the old fence
and similar in conslructurc.
After ihe President of the Jloard'hi'j
persistently, during his whole'term of
office, insisted upon making segregation
at Kakaako a mere sham, against the
advice of physicians and against the
common sense of the w hole community,
we fail to see why so useless an act as
the one mentioned should entitle him
to any praise at all.
The fact that lepers could and did
freely interchange salutations with their
friends through the old picket, haV riot
only been condemned in severe terms,
by the prcis of this city for several yean
put, but lot csca been encouraged by
the prcsideM Botwichtuuding. During

submit, that if lepmny is n contagious
disease, nil subjects of It should be dealt

The disiriininallim which has been
shown in favor of Individuals In this
regard has been outrageous. It is not
only an injustice in those who nre kepi
confined, but to the whole lomiuunliy
of healthy icople outside. We hold It
lu !w useless folly and a wirked waste
of public money to keep up, nt so large

Nothing that our contemporary, the
Advertiser, has done or said so cor
roborates the views we have expressed
upon the injury to this people in the
granting of liquor licenses as it did in
its issue of the 17th instant, wherein
figures of arrests were given to show
the difference of drunkenness before
and after the removal of the restrictions
Wc thank them for their manliness and
courage in looking up these facts and
publishing them in support of out side
of the question nt the expense of their
own. We can do no better than 10 let
thcni tell their own story;
"The Advertiser is a journal of fact
and opinion. It is prepared, therefore,
to throw light upon every local and
general question ns far as this may
possibly be done by accurate reporting.
Now, inasmuch as nuhlic opinion is
very much divided upon the effect of
the unrestricted sue ot liquor to
natives, we thought that the best way
to reach a just conclusion was to con
sult the records of jiolice arrests for
drunkenness in the city during the
twelve months preceding such legalized
sale and subsequent thereto. This wc
have done with the following result:

I'his comparative statement proves
conclusively that the permission to sell
liquor to natives increased drunkenness
among lhat people. Theie is a notice-
auie increase 01 arrests among for
eigners also, but this may be explained
by the fact that there has been a large
accession to the foreign population.
Continuing our comparison up to the
present month, we find that there has
not been any sensible increase of late.
In other words, the average of arrests
for drunkenness amoni? native Hawaii.

These figures, if not very satisfactory,
are, at least, instructive. We assume
that the numlier of police arrests is a
very fair criterion of the amount of
open drunkenness m the community,
although, of course, it is not a reliable
guide to the total consumption of

Continuing our examinations into
possible industries for these islands, we
are reminded of one that looks very
much like a lapsed or neglected in
dustry, viz: the manufacture of leather.
This island, and also Hawaii, for a
number of years claimed tanneries,
situated at Maunalua; Gahu, and at
Waimea and Hilo, Hawaii, whose pro
ducts went largely to supply the local
demand for saddle and sole leather,
principally, with occasional supplies of
calf, kid and goat skins, Hut we hear
little of these home tannery' products
now-a-days, and fear that foreign im
imitations or other causes are
crowding them to the walk Few, be
sides those intimately acquainted with
the business, are aware, proliably, of the
disadvantages this industry has labored
under, as the woods supplying the bark
for tanning purposes have diminished
in convenient localities, and labor to
obtain the same has materially in
creased. It seems small wonder then
that the industry docs not grow in pro
portion to the increased demand for
these products. Tanking material
figures among the imports, and might
be increased to make up for
the decline in the local supply of
proper bark and deficits of other neces
sary material, but we have no know
ledge of any attempt laving been nude
here to utiliac the sumac that grow
freely in Hunypacttef the itUneVa, If
all our own product have not been
fully tested as vet for tanning material.

there was a field here for n revival of
this industry, that we might utilize

A London dispatch of April 141I1
says, there is a very general disap
pointment over the text and tone of
(jlaustoncs statement in the Common's
last evening. Eve.ry one expected he
would state the immediate intentions
of the government, instead of finding
excuses for more delay at a time when
past delays have caused a dangerous
amount of irritation. Russia is in the
meantime pushing forward her troops
in feverish haste. The government
says any advance of the liritish troops
into Alghamstan might be interpreted
that EtiRland despaired of peace, while
she really entertains strong hopes that

with the gravity of the situation un
changed. NotwithstandinK yesterday's
social by-play of the Czar with btr
Edward Thornton on the large pur
chases of Russian bonds in the Slock
Exchange for Berlin account, the
opinion of this morning's press can be
well summarized tliat the situation is
not chanced, and that there is still
some faint hope of peace on one side
and a strong doubt as to the possibility
01 averting war on inc oiner siue.
Gladstone, in the House of Com
mons this afternoon, stated that word
had been received from Sir Peter
I:umsden, which showed that there
was no confirmation of the report that
the Russians had advanced to the
Muruhab river after the battle of Penj-
deh. Continuing Gladstone said that
the re'suU of the government's com
munication! with Russia concerning
t3 reported advance amounted to the
renewini; of Russia' assurance that no
such advance will occur if the issue of
contrary instructions can prevent it.
The Russian military organ, the Svet,
sums up the situation thus, : " For
ward to Herat Now is the time."
Katil liars, the Russian minister
ays; "The (Iris shot was fired by the
Afghans. Komaroffs conduct was
thoroughly correct. He did not even
occupy the territory on the Kuihlc,
which, by the terms of the convention,
he might have done. The Afghans
fought in the beginning with bravery's
but al last fled in wild confusion, leav
ini all their artillery and trains in the
hands of KotnarolT, as well ni many of
their dead and wounded.
It was reported in Ottawa April 14th
that an arrangement had been made y
which a conflict with the half-breeds
under Riel would be avoided. It was
fafxtftesl April 15th that negotiations
looking to peace were opened the day
before .by telegraph between General
Midiiklon and toiils Riel, and that
such negotiations were Mill pending.
