THE COINAGE QUESTION.
A great ileal has been said for and
ngninst tlio proposed new coinage.
It has been described by its advo
cates as a scheme by which the
Government can make money, and
by its opponents, as a scheme for
Haltering the personal vanity of His
Majesty with the second phase of
these arguments we have nothing
to do. We propose to treat the
subject purely in a business way and
from a business point of view.
First however, wc must prcmlso
that the man, who advocates a
scheme by which a Government is
to make money out of its subjects,
has forgotten what a Government is.
A Government only exists for the
mutual convenience of its component
parts, and these parts, who arc
styled subjects, have agiccd on
some form of carrying on business,
w Inch is called Government. Prac
tically, in every country, the Gov
ernment is the people. They assess
themselves injtaxes and pay them, so
as to carry on tho machinery of
Government. Without these taxes
being paid the Government could
not go. on.
For no Government has n revenue
undorived from .its people. If the
Government needs more money it
has to raise more taxes, but for it to
make money out of its people is
simply equivalent to taxing those
people for the same purpose. It is
like a man's taking money out of
one pocket and putting it iulo
And it is impossible for a Govern
ment to make money out of a coin
age worth less than its face value.
For they have to lcceivc that coin
age back in payment of all taxes
and Government dues and what they
may gain nominally in the coinage
they lose three or four limes over
when they collect the taxes and
duties. It is a well-known nxion
in the financial world, that coins
always find their exact level. Make
an edict to-morrow that the half
dollar shall be called a dollar, and
immediately the pi ice of an niticlo
which was half-a-dollar will be
raised in the same proportion.
Money is never worth more than
what it will buy.
NOTES AND QUERIS.
Wo hear that all those whose
business licenses had expired before
the 1st of October, and who failed to
renew them befotc that date, are to
be prosecuted. AVhy should the law
be enforced so suddenly and with
out warning when it has remained
so long in abcyanco? If it was time
to enforce it, why not give notice of
the intention? Wc have heard that
tho matter was not started till some
pcoplo went to pay their licenses that
had expired, and then the law woke
Is there any body who has author
ity to compel people to remove ob
blructions, such as steps, &c, from
the sidewalks? If there is, he will find
enough to do in getting that pint
of Nuuanu street, mauka of llerc
tania street level. Several complaints
Jiavo reached us from time to time
from pcoplo who have fallen over
these steps at night. There Is also
a stable there, into and out of
which' horses arc being led constant
ly," and no light is shown. If these
thiHgi were speedily attended to, it
would go far to show that the Gov
ernment .wcm sincere in their desire
to further improvement.
; . .THE DAND,
Wi: hear 'that the public nro to bo
deprived of listening to tho Hand at
'the Hotel ou Hominy' evenings,
ympgwr qgpry :Fyf tFi
...... . .... .-' Vfe..J
ny is mis inns r; jto .uiuru ioo
many harmless amusements in
Honolulu that we should be deprived
of this one.
Yesterday's list was n long one,
there being 05 cases including 3
deserters from bond service. Of
the lcinaiiilug cases 28 were brought
up for drunkenness or cases, such as
assault and bakery, disturbing the
quiet of the night, which arc the
results of drunkenness. 'Of these
28 no less than 22 wcro natives, Urn
others being 2 South Sea Islanders'
and 1 foreigners.
On Sunday it was reported at the
Police Station that a South Sea
Islander had been nnudored over at
Koolau, An ollicer was bent to in
vestigate and when ho got these it
was found that he had .been drunk
and fallen over a canyon and injured
himself, lie told the oillccr who
had supplied him and others with
liquor, and by going a little further
the oillcer was enabled not only to
arrest tho distiller, John Ailama,
but also to capture tho still and
some okolchao. Tho case will bo
tried at Koolaupoko to-day.

Complaints arc rife of the scarcity
of beef in Lahainn.
CONCERT AT LAHAINA.
(flei'liilly lk'imituil feir tlio lltlM.KTIN.)
About'thc middle of the week, it
was announced in Lahaiua that II.
11. II. Princess Kainakaeha, with the.
assistance of others whose 'services
she could command, would give a
concert for the benefit of, Wnincc,
Church before her doparture. Ac
cordingly tan exceptionally large
audience assembled on Friday even
ing, in the brilliantly lighted and
tastefully decorated church. Ban
ana trees, cocoanut fronds, hi
leaves, ferns nnd flowers united to
intensify the tropical appearance of
the interior, while the large Hawai
ian flag draping the pulpit fittingly
portrayed the nationality and loyalty '
of those who h.ul come together to
enjoy the honor which the Princess
saw fit to bestow upon the pcoplo of
Lahaina. Besides the Princess ' and
her party, the Alaska Miiibtrcls (the
Alaska having arrived Thursday)
and a chorus from Lalmiualuna
Seminary, led by Mr. John Maipinc
pine, a graduate of last year, added
greatly to the enjoyment of those
present. The programme, consist
ing of songs in variety extending
from the ancient Hawaiian to the
popular songs of the day, including
some southern plantation melodies,
was carried out without interruption
and to manifest satisfaction of the
audience. The singing.of V Cjjll. me
back again" by the Princess aiul
her chorus was encored, and other
performances by the same snigcis
would have been .lind liot Her High
ness intimated a wish that thoy
should not be. Among the notables
in the audience were Governor
Dominis, Minister Daggett and
Capl. Belknap. The afi'air will be
quite memorable in the " annals of
a quiet neighborhood.''
(Fiom Our Onn Coriunmilcnt.)
On Monday and Tuesday of last
week the rain fell in copious showcis
all through tho Eastern portion of
this district, whereat everybody re
joices. It is not only tho planter
who feels encouraged when crops
look well, for unless that individual
makes money hobody else will get
any. A largo crop of cano implies a
general circulation of money among
all classes. Thp rains, however,
have not extended much above the
cultivated lands, and as a coiuc-
quenco thp sources of btrenms.liavc
itaot'jccu8uni)iiw uml gikivbc
Thus on Tuesday when
the rain was falling plentcously over
the cane fields, it was as dry as
powder up in tho woods.
Wc hear thnt the Tax Collector
nppolhlcd for this District has not
qualified, and that a now man will
take his place. It is about time that
olllcial commenced business. There
is no necessity for going out of the
District in making tlio appointment,
for there arc Buitablopcr5oii9 rcsU
dent here for the position.
Complaints arc still rife about the
iiinorniicc if nothing worse of our
Polico Magistrate. Ho has tho
reputation of being a very well
meaning man ; but it often happens
that very dull and stupid people
mean well. That is no consolation
for thcus who are compelled to suffer
from their blunders.
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.

that there will be a change in tlio
Ministry. It is said that it has
been definitely decided that His Kx.
S. K. Kaai is to resign.
Mn. Ciiuzan's sermon on Amuse-i
tncnts on Sunday night was highlyi
appreciated. His views seem in
this respect to be extremely liberal

Tin: monthly meeting of the Wo

Spencer who, it will be remembered,
was in the same office with His
Majesty at one time.
Mr-s-jits. Hackfcld & Co. havo
placed two fine tall bronze vases on
stands in their warehouse. They are
splendid specimens of Japanese art
on a .gigantic scale, and are well
worth purchasing by thoso who own
large houses. .
Tun following articles are now nt

not bo devoted to any particular

the writers in tho first nud second

serial will no doubt be a great suc

Stanley will set about prcpaiing as
soon as ho arrives in London will
probably bo the most interesting ho
has ever written, and for this reason,
among others, that he Has" kcflt the
sccict of it absolutely to himself. It
is plain also that the right of pro

Mr. Stanley has been exploring,' Will
become a vexed international region,
as France, Belgium, England, and
probably the United Slates nlbo, arc
already laying claim to it.
