OFFICE MONEY ORDER
The "Convention between tlio
Post Olllcc department of the King
dom of Hawaii and the Post Office
department of the United States of
America, concerning the exchange
of money orders," is another mea
sure in the direction of progress, and
one that cannot fail to be advan
tageous to these islands and appre
ciated by our people.
This Convention has been regu
larly " executed and signed " bv II.
A. P. Carter, Hawaiian Envoy Ex
traordinary and Minister Plenipo
tentiary at Washington, and "Walter
Q. Gresham, Postmaster-General of
the United States, and approved by
President Arthur and King Kala
kaua, and will " take effect on the
first day of January, 1884, and con
tinue iu force until twelve months
after cither of the contracting parties
shall have notified to the other its
intention to terminate it." To His
Excellency J. M. Kapcna, Mr. II.
M. "Whitney, our Postmaster-General,
and Mr. I. B. Peterson, his able
Assistant, is mainly due the ciedit
of having initiated and perfected
this important measure.
Following arc the principal provi
sions of the convention affecting
those who ma' have occasion to
avail themselves of this convenient
method of transmitting money:
Fifty dollars ($50) is the maximum
of each order. No order shall in
clude a fractional part of a cent.
The amount of each order must be
expressed in letters as well as in
figures. The rates of commission
on orders, which remain to be fixed,
must be paid in advance by remit
ters, and shall not be repayable.
Every order must contain the name
of the office and of the State or Is
land of destination. Every appli
cant for an order must furnish the
name and address of the person to
whom the amount is to be paid, and
his own name and address ; or the
name of the firm or company who
are remitters or payees, together
with the address of each. All orders
must be forwarded by remitters to
payees at their own expense. Dup
licate orders can only be issued by
the Postal Administration of the
country on which the original orders
were drawn. Orders which are not
paid within twelve calendar months
from the month of issue, shall be
come void, and the sums received
shall accrue to, and be at the dis
posal of, the country of origin. In
the exchange of money orders be
tween the two countries, one' dollar
in Hawaiian money shall be taken as
the equivalent of one dollar in Uui
ted Stutes money, the standard in
either country being gold value.
Mechanics and others having
small amounts to remit will be
mostly benefited by this convention,
, ,and we trust that our authorities
will see their way clear to fixing tho
rate of commission at a low figure,
"-so as not to lessen the benefit to this
class of tho community. Private
, banking corporations naturally and
ii. necessarily conduct their business
with the view of making a profit;
but the Post Office, being a public
' Institution, established and operated
for the public good, its rates of ex
c hange should not aim at more than
- ' MELLIS MILLINERY ESTABLISHMENT.
I Amoug the other attractions on
ba turday last in the displuy of
f fancy articles, A, 3tf. Mollis' Es
tablishment drew a considerable
jj number of people during the whole
of the day. The Millinery depart-
i, 'ment, undo- the supervision of Miss
: Ilirshberg, situated at tho end of tho
store, was beautifully and tastefully
p arranged with laces, curtains,
flowers, wreaths, mottoes, etc.,
i forming a vqry pretty canopy. The
"lints about 200 in number were
fiUclegautly arranged on three long
"''tables; nnd were trimmed in the most
!.3ieganc styie, auer uio juwsi .uuuri i
.can and Parisian fashions, such as J
A la Iolani, Lnngtry Pokes, Kate
Castlotons, Minnie Warren, Cloth
ilda, Horsc-shoc Bonnets, (in opera
shades) and numerous others, rang
ing in price from $2 to $85 and
suitable for all classes, and all
occasions. Over four hundred
feathers were displayed, of every
conceivable color and shade. In
hat trimmings the assortment was
immense, embracing hearts, darts,
bows, cupids, daggers, birds, and
a hundred and one other devices,
while cascades of Real Laces and
pyramids of flowers made a sight
seldom seen in a Millinery establish
ment in this city. Notwithstanding
the great demand on Miss Ilirsh
berg's energies and resources, she is
still alive and her stock unexhausted,
and will be happy to continue her
attentions to the ladies of Honolulu.
In view of the possible importation
of Japanese laborers to this country,
by steamers of the Oceanic Co's.
line, we reproduce an article from
the S. J'1. Chronicle, which shows
that this subject is receiving consid
eration in America.
"The Chinese exclusion Act seems
to have given an impulse to imih'i
gration, from Japan. More, Japanese
arc daily seen on our streets, though
owing to their ready adaptability1 to
our dress and manners the increase
has not been generally noted. Tlicy
are a desirable class of servants and
workingmen, being quite ingenious
and teachable. There must, however,
be some aid to the immigration, or
at least some organized encourage
ment which will bring them in such
numbers as ay be needed. The
Japanese have none of the objection
able qualities of the Chinese. They
readily adopt our customs and grad
ually lose their identity in the mass
of our people. No Japanese quarter
could ever grow up an any ,city to
disgust with its squalor, or to lend
its aid and countenance not merely
to its own special vices, but to those
of a class of degraded whites, who
are only too glad to take advantage
of the concealment thus afforded.
They arc neat and handy and there
fore much sought after for servants.
For all kinds of light work, of which
there is an abundance in the fields
and orchards of this State, they
would prove useful. "While there is
reason to believe that we can get
a sufficient number of the kind of
laborers we want from Japan, there
is no fear that the immigration would
prove excessive. . The population is
only 37,000,000, and the common
people being in fair circumstances,
only a small proportion care to leave
their homes. The case with them is
very different from that of China,
with its 400,000,000 of oppressed
people, overcrowded in city and
country, tilling an exhausted soil
and constantly threatened with "the
most Terrible famines."
Correspondence is solicited on the top
ics of the day, or what may become so.

Eoitok Bui.lktix: I see in your
paper that "at the meeting of the P.
L. and S. Co.? on Thursday, Mr.
"V. O. Smith i stated that black sand
had a wonderful effect upon grass
growing in the yard at his residence,
as it acted, when spread upon bare
patches, as a first class fertilizer."
I would say, for the benefit of any
whom it may interest, that not only
will a thin layer ' of black sand,
spread on the surface, greatly assist
the growth of njanienic grass, but I
know of no better manure for clayey
soil, like most of the land at the
entrance to JKalihi Valley and in the
neighborhood of the Lunatic Asylam.
A little black band mixed with the
clay will nearly double a crop of
vegetables or a crop of taro. I am
not pure whether this is owing to the;
fact that the admixture of sand
keeps the clay in a loose state and
prevents it from baking. I am ra
ther inclined to the latter belief.
