. A Mistake. We are assmed by persons who
were present during, the debate in the As3mbiy
on Saturday last, that the Gazette is misinformed as
to the actual tenor of a remark made by one of
the speakers, as referred to in its article headed
' Hawaiian Law7 No such pentimeiit was ex
pressed as " that only the Supreme Being should
decide the law for him ; but the . idea conveyed
was that he was responsible only to the Supreme
Being fur bis opinions.
Ciilnameji as Voters. A correspondent inquires
whether Chinamen are generally eligible as voters.
The law prescribes that a voter shall be able to real
and write, but does not say whether it- shall be in
English, Hawaiian, Chinese or Sanscrit, that he
must be able to use those accomplishments. ' We
don't believe it would hart John a bit if he were
declared Ineligible for the exercise of the. ballot
privilege, so long as he may be allowed the far more
important privilege of peddling cakes and otherwise
indulging bis proclivities for trade.

Merrill sailed for Lahaina on Friday of last week,
taking the United States mail and the news of the
passage of the treaty bill. A letter from T. W.
Everett, Esq., of Lahaina, to the Postmaster Gen
eral, says : " The Settle hove in sight at 10 a. m.
on Saturday, and at 11 we could see that she had
an unusually large display of bunting, and we
then felt sure sue bad the news that the treaty bad
passed. I sent a private messenger over the moun
tain and he arrived at Cornwell's about a quarter
to 2 o'clock. The planters were so elated that
ihey purchased the man's horso and paid him
double his charge for the IripJ The mails were
landed here at about 2 p. m., and in accordance
with your direction I sent them over the mountain
at once. They arrived at Wailuku at C p. m., and
went on at 7 o'clock to Haiku, Makawao, and Ma
kee 's. There was great rejoicing at Wailuku on
the receipt of the news." The Kamnile sailed for
Kauai on Saturday, and similar instructions were
sent from the rosfmaster General to. speed the
news over that island. -i
Not satisfied with abolishing the law to mitigate
and let loose the kahunas to practice their charms
unhindered, the legislators even try to introduce
again the retail sale of opium under a license of
not less than $20,000, valuing the remnant of the

headA and to save or rather raise the amount off
$ 20.trt)0 . for the treasury would sell the lives of
their own people dirt-cheap at 50 cants, instead rf
leaving the law as it stands (except giving, which
ought to have been done from the first, jurisdiction
to police and district courts in all opium rases).
That law in a few years would stamp out the traffic j
and the use of opium. When the present law was
put in force a large amount of opium was in the J
hands of dealers and speculators, but not to be. j
come heavy losers by their investment, opium has
been sold at bedrock prices, and the stock on hand
U at present much diminished, and also the use of
opium is in the same ratio diminished. This is a
fact, and as such well established by the experi
ence of those who are the best judges, the police.
As soon as the last of the stock on band is gone,
the vigilance of the custom house officers will pre
vent any introduction of the poison, at least in
large quantities, and the efficiency of the police
force will interfere with its being used freely. The
use of opium in a few years under continuance of
the present law would cease and be effectually
stamped out : but here come onr fiiends to revive
again this traffic that has caused already so much
poverty, so much misery, so much death ; and well
may thi3 people exclaim, save u from onr friends,
the legislators ! lh
What is to be the effect of the new treaty oo
the prosperity of these Islands T This is a question
which every thoughtful man will ask. With proper
legislation it will add to their prosperity; mis
management and bad legislation will ruin us.
If the government vote, extravagant sums for a
childish display of military, or any other useless
purpose, with the intention of extorting it from
their best subjects and citizens, the effect will be
Thoughtful men are careful, and if they see a
storm ahead will make their investments in other
What permanent benefit will it be to the Islands
if a few planters acquire a fortune here and then
sell out and take it away, and leave their less
fortunate neighbors to bear the brant of heavy
taxation? A Fobtt Yfb? PiEstpfs.

On Wednesday night the police made a raid
upon the hoodlum assemblies, which have ot late
j made the streets of onr peaceful cily rather iinsaft".
' Charles Levi had assaulted a foreigner walking
j peaceably through a crowd of some 2a or T.0 hood---
luni.s, and investigation brought out the fact that a
number of hoodlums make up a purse, Bend a
white boy to purchase bad gin, get drunk on it.
j and then commit assaults on passers-by. Charles
, was fined $10 and $3 costs, it being the first
' offence, and His Honor arraigned before him some
nine or ten of the fraternity and addressed them
i very forcibly upon ihe dangerous coarse which
vmey were pursuing, ana wnat little nope tnere is
for the future of Hawaii nei if the present genera
lion of young men on whom the future welfare of
the country depends, is permitted to grow up in
the way in which they ate at present traveling-;
and His Honor said tbat he is determined to put a
stop to it, and gave strict orders to the police force
to assist him in doing so. The people of Honolulu
cannot but rejoice at the work which the police has
undertaken and wish them the best success.
Chinese in the United States and on
That there is much bitterness of feeling in Cali
fornia against the Chinese, there is abundant
evidence. In this hostility both the governor of
the State and the mayor of San Francisco partici
pate. There are those ia the State who, if per
mitted, would get up a crusade, and drive every
Chinaman from the land; and a large number,
perhaps a majority, are unwilling that more should
come into the State.
The cause of this hatred is evident. In construct
ing railroads, working mines and factories, and in
various other ways, the Chinese were competing
with other laborers. They not only worked at a
cheaper rate, but owing to their numbers, the
supply of laborers was greater than the demand.
The Irish, who are noted for the se of the spade,
took the alarm. The Chinese were injuring their
craft, and, if allowed to come into the country in
such swarms, they would leave them nothing to do.
The bad feeling extended to mechanics and others;
and politicians took advantsge of it to promote
their schemes. In order to obtain the votes of
the disaffected, they would lend their influence to
any measures tbat might be taken to prevent the
farther 'immigration of the Chinese. Had the
Chinese become citizens of the country, a class of
politicians would have espoused their cause for the
sake cf their votes; but as they are aliens, they
have few friends, and mostly of those who are
governed by higher principles than party considera
tions. As the Chinese have found no patron among
the Americans to undertake their cause, the
Fresidents of the six companies of San Francisco
have addressed a memorial to the President of the
United States in behalf of their countrymen. They
set forth: 1 that it has always been the settled
- policy of the United States to welcome immigration
from all countries, without let or hindrance; 2
that the treaty which is in force between the United
States and China makes as special mention of the
rights of Chinese here as of Americans there; 3
that for years American steamers hare been inviting
the Chinese to come hither, until 150,000 are here,
of whom C0.000 are in California, and half that
number in San Francisco; and, that these Chinese
immigrants have, for the most part, been peaceable

and law-abiding; have, in some instances, as in the
case of railroads' on the Pacific coast, performed
needed and most important work for the public
benefit, not displacing white laborers, but simply
multiplying the industrial resources of the country;
thus while benefiting themselves, giving satisfaction
to others, and enriching the State; 5 that thej
have in no way desired, or attempted to interfere
with the established order of things in politics, or
religion, but while opening no whisky saloons to
harm others, they have promptly paid their duties,
taxes, rents, and debts.
Then they mention ' that heretofore, about the
time of State or general elections, certain political
agitators have been accustomed to stir up an excite
ment against the Chinese, which has generally
subsided as soon as the elections, and so the pur
pose of the movement had passed by. Cut at the
present time, they say, that an intense and bitter
feeling against the Chinese who are here, and against
farther Chinese immigration has been sought to be
awakened by a party led on by his Honor the Mayor
of San Francisco, and abetted by his Excellency the
Governor of California, who Lave arranged a great
public meeting, adopted an address and resolutions
against Chinese immigration, and appointed a
committee of three to wait upon President Grant,

Among the Mountains of California
DocCLas Cm, CaL. Aug. 9th, 1ST.
I wished ta reac'j Ih'j rise, far P in the raeon-
tains. To do so I was to leave tut overian t irata
Roevi.!e junction, eighteen miles eat cf Sacramento,
taking the California and Oregon railroad to BeJ
ding, thence on by stage. The Junction, IUevi!l,
is like the most of the watering place n the Pacific
road, entirely uninteresting a run-out mining
town. Here I was obliged to wait for six hoars, so
we went to the hotel opposite the depot to pat the
time. Wt were told there was nothiag utside to
amuse or interest strangers, to we turned or atten
tion to the house to tee what of entertainment we
eoull fin I there. The reading matter consisted of an
old newspaper and a Fourth Rraler if a Roitaa
Catholic aeriea The paper fell to mt and was moat
thoroughly read, marked an 1 Inwardly digste-l. The
The train' came promptly en time, and we went
aboard, glad to end our waiting. The country
through which this road runs is unlike that along
the Pacific road . It is dry, though not barren a
grain country after harvest. On each side cf the
road, up ihe Sacramento Valley, were huge piles nf
grain in sacks, promising a year t.f plenty. A ride
cf two hours and a half brought us to Marysville,
where we had supper. let the distance the Marys
ville Butts loom up boldly out of the plain. From
Marysville to Redding, outside was without special
incident. At one of the way stations, after darkt
Dr. Drown, formerly of the Pensacols, came aboard
the train. It was pleasant to see some one who had
been in Honolulu, and though our scats were at a
little distance from each other, I watched him,
amusing myself by thinking of his uncontoiousness
cf an Hawaiian acquaintance so near. It was one
o'clock at night when the cars arrived at Redding,
their terminus. I hoped to have a time to rest here
before continuing the journey, but I was informed
the stages left immediately on the arrival of the
train. I had got up the morning before at two
o'clock that I might not miss the fine scenery near
the famous Cape Horn on the Paclflo railroad, and
for nearly twenty-four hours had had no sleep.
There was nothing to be done, however, but to take
one of the stages or wait another whole day. My
time was too limited to allow of so long a delay, and
tired and sleepy as I was, I took my seat for a forty
mile ride, with a vain expectation, as it proved, of
reaching my destination by seven o'clock the next
morning. When I was called to get aboard I found
the stage already well tilled. A basket was removed
to make room for me, and pushing, and crowding,
and walking over the feet of several passengers, I
succeeded in reaching the small portion of seat allot
ted to me. My fellow passengers on the back seat
were a man and woman, evidently from Pikt's Peak.
The middle seat was occupied by a huge Portuguese
and a stout gentleman with a little boy sandwiched
between them. The seat I sat on was shared by two
good sized Portuguese women. We on the last seat
eat with our backs to the horses. When all was
ready the horses started away on a run. The road
rough and the dust inches thick, and as we drove
rapidly on it came into our faces almost to suffoca
tion. The big Portuguese soon showed himself to be
possessed of a tender, caressing, conjugal spirit
Reaching forward he took the hand of the woman in
front of bim, and despite jolts which nearly sent his
head through the top of the stage, and other adverse
circumstances, he held it to the end of his ride, un
mindful of the fatigue of the position.
The bight was beautiful. The moon was full, and
rode in a cloudless sky. The stage was covered, and
so we could only see that we were riding through
country well wooded, and that our road ran along
a hill-side. Our first stop was to be at Shasta, seven
miles from Redding. As we approached it, onr
tender Portuguese began making preparations to
leave the stage. A large foot was run through the
window of the stage, and a boot pulled on by
strong and steady effort. We were an boor an j
half In getting to Shasta.' I asked the driver when
we were due at eaverville, and with a sinking
heart heard the answer, ' At four o'clock in the af
ternoon.'1 We left five of our passengers at this
place. I bad been trying during the whole ride to
keep from pitching into the arms of the stout gentle
man in front cf me. Want of sleep and fatigue
made this a difficult task, but I flattered myself no
one noticed it. From each staccato nap I awoke with
the instinctive effort to make my neighbors think I
had not been asleep, and with no deceit aforethought
in my heart, tried to smile aod speak as though I
was not nearly fainting from fatigue. My efforts
were in vain, for my vis-a-vis, after a aleery nod,
said" I find it nearly as hard to keep awake as
you do." Our ride on for several miles was over
muvhucr roan man tuai we naa passed. This was
fortunate for us, for we were so loosely packed now
we could move about, and if the road had still been
as rough as at first, some of us would certainly bavt
pitched out of the window. At our next stopping
place, Whiskytown, we unloaded ice and mall matter,
and express matter indiscriminately. Our neighbor.
madam on the back seat, regaled herself wi:h a pro
longed smoke, taking her pipe from her husband's
pocket. She first politely inquired if tobacco smoke
was offensive to me. I answered her it was not,
vnte'u it reached my note.' The assurance satisfied
her, and she proceeded, a pictarecf content and an-
joyment. It was now three o'clock, and a suspicion
of dawn showed itself in the esst. How lonelv the
night was I how balaiy and sweet the air ! The
moon was getting low, going to her rest, accompa
nied by her attendants, the stars. It was moonlight
on one aide it was dawn on the other. The moon
rapidly sank, the dawn rapidly strengthened, and at
fire o'clock the sun showed himself above the hori
zon. We began now to think of breakfast. The sua
roused our sleepy souls a little and we could now
I better enjoy the grand scenery through which we
j were pissing,. Oar road ran along ftli all the
way. We rode on the side of one mountain, and
looked into a beautiful wooded valley which sepa.
rated us from another mountain. We were going
down hill now at a rate calculated to frighten the
timid. We got over the road without accident, no
unusual thing, by the way, and at six o'clock stop
ped at the "Tower House" for breakfast. Mine
host was absent at a " dan ;e," aixtcen miles dis
tant, and there was no one to' do the honors of the
bouse ou oar arrival. A woman whom we met in
the parlor showed us to a wash-stand on the veranda,
where we were to make our toilet for breakfast. The
same hospitable woman went for a towel, putting it
on a chair which served for a towel stand and soap
dish. Our Pike's Peak friends had the use of the
bowl and towel first, two brown spots on the last in
dicating the portions iLey had used. But the dost
was not to be washed off in a bowl of water, and we
could only partially refresh ourselves.' A heavily
shod Chinaman stamped around in the dining-room,
and his expanded nostrils and broadly smiling
mouth were meant to express the welcome and bos
pitality of the house. Our bill of fare was varied.
Beefsteak, baked beans, ancient salt cod fish fried,
apple sauce, ham and eggs, pan cakes, apple pie,
potatoes and doughnuts. The doughnuts were evi
dently from the basket of fragments that remained.
The Tower House is the only JullJing of any kind
in the city. In the garden are roses, morning glo
ries, and a profusion of growth of other plants
delightful to look upon; while outside this watered
enclosure all Is brown and dasty. At the Tower

The Decline in 6ilvcr.

precedented ia nuMolal history. For many years
its value was about 00d per ounce, and less than a
year ago It was C7d per ounce, and this was tht pre
vailing price last year. Tht caust of this rapid ap
parent depreciation in silver, says tht Cincinnati
Commercial, does not seem to bt generally under,
ttood. Wt say apparent depreciation because It Is
by no means certain that silver Las depreciated to
tba extent which tht quotations show, for ihrrt are
good reasons for felleving that the phenomenon a
not so much a fall In iht valet of tDvar as a rltt in
the value of gold. Everything has declined daring
tht last few years, as measured by tht gold standard
real estate, wages, and in general merchandise all
articles from peanuts to diamonds. This of itself la
prima facia evidence of an appreciation in the value
cl gold. - ' ' '
But let us go back and set what Influences have
been at work to affect tht valut of gold. The world's
production of gold varies largely from jear to year,
and attained its largest development In when
It reached tht total cf $194,000,000. Since Ibea It
has fallen off heavily, and la 1876 It was only f 97.
000,000. The business and commerce cf the world
has steadily Increased meantime, at that If gold was
the only medium of exchange the world'j annual
production would not bt equal to Iht necessities cf
its Increased traffic For ten years preceding tW
annual production of gold did .net exceed on tht
average that of 1872. Tbert Lai consequently been
a steady appreciation In the Tslut of gold; The ex
changeable valut of commodities baa not altered ex.
cept as they art affected by local canees, but their
value as measured In gold Lss largely depreciated
not only in this country but In the whole of Europe,
as the natural and inevitablt effect cf the Increase In
trade and commerce In exoesa cf tht Increase In tht
substance used as a measure cf value. Had silver
kept its former place as a measure of value this ap
preciation In gold could not Lave occurred, or at
least it would not bavt been so great, but by tht de
termination cf Germany after tht Franco-Prussian
war to demonetize silver, changing Its legal atandard
of valae and coinage from silver to gold, a revolution
was inaugurated ia Its monetary system, which la
far-reaching la Its effect, and which It Is by no
means certain will bt successful In the end, for it
baa eaccontcred the opposition of contiguous coun
tries which preserve, tht double standard1, vlt, :
France, Italy. Belgium and Switterland, which bavt
formed a coalition to resist tht monetary nterrrise
of Germany, and to this end they bavt treaties, the
substance cf which la that they will admit na silver
for free coinage until the year 1878, It bt-iar auder-
stoca inai mey navt a surpiy on band obtained,
probably, before Germany began to sell Its silver
sufficient to meet the requirements cf their mints
until that time.. Thus, Germany having withdrawn
from the markets as a consumer of silver, and be
come a seller of vast sums, and Ihe countries which
use a silver coinage t ins? no looter oten to its free
coinage the demand for silver became restricted to
India and China, and at a tisat when tht balance of
trade between those countries and turcrt was so
small as to require a comparatively small sum to
liquidate it, so that when Germany attempts to sell
her unused silver It comes open a market where
thert art few purchasers, and the mora urgent ber
demand to self, the mora rapid is tht decline. Great
Britain caving cnly gold at a legal tenJer pas little
use for silver, and Austria and Russia beinc con
dmned to a chronic- state of paper currency can not
afford any relief by acquit log the silver cn tht mar
kets. Germany caa not get rid cf ber silver there,
fore except at an Is&meatt sacrifice, while on tht
ether hand she baa already bought about all cf tht
gold sht oan obtain, and It is her efforts to buy more
which have supplemented tht natural tendency cf
gold to appreciate, and by thus artificially enhancing
tt valae, she Is entailing aa enormous mm npoa her-
self. The countries ia tht coalition against tht Ger-.
man monetary enterprises Art doing all which th
can to keep ber from acquiring the gold she wants,
and thus assisting in tba appreciation cf Vbe valet cf
gold. Whert this thing will end 0d what will bt
the consequence Is the problem, of tht boar. , boras
think that If Germany pr.istt In forctns- ber silver
cn tht market, an! uemaadlng more fld than the
can obtain will precipitate a crUis In Great Britain
ao cn tht Continent, while If sht gives np ber pro
ject such a calamity will bt avoided. Tht rapid de
cline In ailver would aeem to indicate that the rrisii
or the change cn not be long delayed. ' 9 '
