The Daily Advertiser yesterday
devoted two-thirds of a column to
expose our '"'ignorance " in matters
linoncial and in so doing only let a
little more light in on its own. Out
of a loan of 82,000,000 cyen it can
Unci only three items amounting in
all to 8210,000 which' it can call
directly reproductive, and of these
it credits one with $90,000 (the
Marine Railway) whereas the loan
act only allows $50,000 so that that
amount small as it is, is reduced to
$200,000. Take this 'same item of
850,000 for the Marine Railway.
The country is seeking to borrow
that at G per cent in order to lend it
again at 5 per cent. If the rest of
the three directly reproductive works
don't pay better than that it will be
a poor lookout.
"Wo again, repeat our statement
that no British Colony has ever
dared to ask for works not directly
reproductive except in comparatively
small sums, excepting only New
Zealand and the Cape of Good
Hope. These two colonies have
had to borrow money for war pur
poses to defend their citizens from
the aggressive attacks of aborigines.
The largest public debts of any of
the British Colonies in proportion to
their revenues are those of New
Zealand, Queensland, Victoria,
South Australia and Canada.
Taking for our authority the fig
ures contained in the latest avail
able edition of the Statesman's Year
Book we find that New Zealand
owes now nearly 9 times as much as
one year's revenue in debt accumu
lating since 185 G and that, quoting
the same authority, " about one
half of the total liabilities of the
colouy are made up of loans granted
by the legislature under the Immi
gration and Public Works loan acts
of '70, '73, and '74." Queensland
has a debt of nearly 8 times her
annual revenue incurred since 18G0
chiefly for immigration and public
-works. Victoria has a debt of nearly
4 times her annual revenue, "in
curred in construction of public
works mainly railways." In fact
seven-tenths of her debt of $100,
000,000 was so iucurred. South
Australia has a debt of, 4 times her
annual revenue incurred since 1860
of which the Statesman's Year
Book says, "The whole of the ex
isting debt was raised for repro
ductive public works. Canada has
a debt of about G times her annual
revenue incurved "chiefly on account
of public works." No other British
Colony has a debt of much over two
The public works for -which so
much of these debts, were incurred
are directly reproductive for they
are administered in a different style
to that which obtains here. The
money borrowed by the central
government is, under Act of Par
liament, loaned out to, or divided up
amongst, the various centres of local
government who guarantee the in
tercut to the central government
and obtain that interest "by imposing
rates on the property in the district,
shire, town, borough, or city they
These Public Work's, in the Aus
tralian Colonies arewatcr-works, main
roads, wharves, harbour dredging
etc. The railroads are under the
direct control and management of
the central govcrnment.ancl are found
to pay not only their maintenances and
the interest on the borrowed capital
but also, in many cases, to return a
profit to the government. In all
cases .the principal and interest of
the colonial Public debt is made a
fisrt charge on the revenue of the
It was not our intention to in
sinuate that the proposed Hawaiian
loan was for non-reproductive ob
jects but to show that none were
directly reproductive in the true
sense of the word and that altogether
the statements of the Advertiser
were blundering and we think wc
have done so.
Scarcely six months has passed
over our heads since the gymnasium
was erected, and the Athletic Asso
ciation took possesion of it. At
first quite an enthusiasm was shown
in attending and what with the
various exercises with and without
apparatus, boxing, fencing, etc., it
seemed as though the young men
of Honolulu were appreciating the
boon that had been given them. But
a change has come over the spirit of
their dream. Few ever find their
way up to the gymnasium. It seems
almost forgotten. Why is this ? Is
it tho climate ? Or is it thtt fact that
no regular instructor was ever ap
pointed to give lessons and form
classes ? We think tile latter the
true reason and wc hope to see the
Association take the matter up and
set vigorously to work to remove the
stigma which is now cast on them of
laziness and indifference to the bene
fits of physical exercises.
Yesterday afternoon about three
o'clock the fire-bell rang out on
alarm. The Firemen soon turned
out but their services were not
needed. In one of the rooms at the
rear of Messrs. Ilollister & Co's
Fort Street Store some essence of
ginger was being filtered and soinc
of the liquid, which consists of three
parts of alcohol and one ' of water,
ran over the edges' of tho container
on to a lighted coal-oil stove. It
speedily produced a big blaze but by
the exertions of Mr. Macartney it
was promptly put out t damage
Yesterday afternoon about half
past two a small shanty on the reef
behind the prison was burnt down.
Yesterday afternoon the grass on
the slopes of Punchbowl on the
Pauoa side took fire cause un
known. A gang of men were sent
up from the Police Station to pre
vent it spreading.
