to the Danish newspaper Dugbladct,
is a3 follows "Whut my predeces

from the Rigsret is -acknowledged as
a decisive interpretation of the Con

The obligations of the Unionising re
quire, with imperative necessity, that
I guard that power in the State, which
alone can protect the un'on ex'sting
between the States. Under the pre
sent circumstances I understand it
to be my duty, that the best way of
promoting the welfare of the coun
try is to aUow the Minister of State,
Mr. Selmer, to retire. I therefore
decree : Mr. Minister of State Sel
mer retires from his office. I convey
to him my wannest acknowledg

King Oscar has in an autograph
letter, to Mr. Selmer, communicated
to this gentleman 'his election of

THE HONOLULU RIFLES.
A meeting of members of the Hono
lulu Rifles was held last evening at
the Athletic Association Building.
Fourteen members were present.
Mr. J. H. Fisher submitted a mi
nority report of the committee ap
pointed to draft the constitution and
by-laws. The report was laid on
the table, and, on motion the com
mittee was discharged.
Mr. W. II. Aldrich reported that
Mr. Simmons and himself had hnd
an interview with His Majesty (by
request) and His Majesty desired
the" company to be formed, promis
ing a'id and assistance in uniforms,
arms and accoutrements, The King
also requested that a requisition for
'the money needed for fatigue uni
forms bo forwarded to him and ho
would have it placed upon the esti
mates of expenditure to be appro
priated by the Legislature. His Ma
jesty was anxious that the company
Bhould organize and proceed with
Mr, Godfrey was satisfied that
"IIis Majesty took an iuterest in mili
tary organizations and had no doubt
but that the King woidd aid and
assist the organization. He was
somewhat doubtful regarding the use
any appropriation which might bo
passed to aid the Rifleo, would be
put to and did not thinlc the com
pany would get the "benefit of the
money although other aid and assist-
ancc might be extended. lie con
sidered it advisable for the organiza
tion to pay the bills already incurred,
which, although now of small amount,
would gradually assume greater pro
portions. Mr. Simmons guaranteed the pay
ment of all indebtedness of the com
pany to date.
A motion to adjourn sine die was
put and voted down, there being but
one vote in the adlrmative.
On motion Messrs Aid rich, Fisher
and Mabie were appointed a new
committee on the framing of a con
stitution and by-laws with instruc
tions to report at the next meeting.
On motion a committee of three,
consisting of Messrs McLeod, Aid
rich and Mycr, were apportioned the
duty of waiting on recalcitrant mem
bers' and learning their views relative
to sympathy with the organization,
also empowered to enrol new mem
bers and collect delinquent assess
ments. At 8:45 the' meeting adjourned
until to-morrow evening.

"STRAIGHT IN THE FACE."
Editok Bulletin : When you
said, in your leading article of Sat
urday last, that the "food for
thought" you had furnished respect
ing our "present condition and fu
ture prospects," would "have an
unpalatable taste to many," I think
you guessed it right. Not that you
indicated a "present condition"
which does, not exist, or pointed to
"futi'i'e prospects" which are im
probable of realization ; but because
our "present condition and future
prospects ' ' are as you outlined them ,
your article is likely to have an
"unpalatable taste to many." I
have long discovered that some hon
orable and prominent gentlemen in
this little community have an un
mistakable aversion to an unfavor
able representation of anything cal
culated to influence commercial op
erations, no matter how true. They
regard the acquisition of wealth as
the 8umii,xtm bonum of life, and all
things else as mere secondary con
siderations. Money must come into
the country, and if it cannot be at
tracted here by a candid and truthful
showing of our outlook, it must be
coaxed and deceived by inflation and
misrepresentation. Truth is no
virtue, but the accumulation of money
is, for money is morality. If telling
the truth in any way .interferes with
money-making, then the truth should
not be told ; but if silence, or mis
representation, or lying contributes
to the increase of dollars and cents,
then silence is in order, misrepre
sentation is commendable business
smartness, and lying is justifiable."
It is very wrong of newspapers to
make the remotest allusion to the
loathsome disease that afflicts the
people, or to picture the material
condition of the country in any than
the most glowing colors; because
"it keeps people and capital from
coming here." Of course, it is no
crime to induce strangers to flock
into the country, with their pockets
full of money, by untruthful repre
sentations and false pretences. Oh,
no! This is "business!"
Now, Mr. Editor, I never could
agree with these worthy gentlemen
who talk in this way, and I never
shall. The trader who tries to sell
his wares by representing them to be
what they arc not, is a dishonest
man. The public journal which in
tentionally falsifies, is a dishonest
journal. The journalist who has the
foresight to see and the candor to
state in plain words a probable un
promising future, does no more than
his duty. If his utterances "have
an unpalatable taste to many," men
of principle and honesty wi'l com
mend him for being truthful.

THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS.
The first thousand dollars that a
young man after going out into the
world to net for himself, earns and
saves will generally settle the ques
tion of business life with him. There
may he exceptions to this statement
yet, for a rule, wc think that it will
The first condition is that the young
man actually earns the thousand dol
lars in question. Ho docs not inherit
this sum. It does not come to him
by a streak of good luck, as the re
sult of a fortunate venture in the pur
chase and sale of a hundred shares
of stock. It is the fruit of personal
industry. Ho gives his time and his
labor for it. While ho is thus earn
ing and saving it he must earn two or
three, or perhaps four times as much
to pay his current expenses. He is
consequently held sternly, to the task
of industry for a considerable period.
The direct consequence to him is
steady, continuous and solid disci
pline in the habits of industry in
patient, persistent, forecasting and
self-denying effort, breaking up all
the 'tendencies to indolence and fri
voUty, and making him an earnest
and watchful economist of time.
He not only learns how to work but
. he also acquires the love of work;
and moreover he learns the value
of the sum which he has thus saved
out of his carnincs. He has toiled
for it ; he has observed its slow in
crease f ;,om time to time ; and in his
estimate it represents so many
months or years of practical labor.
His ideas of life are shaped by his own
experience. These natural effects of
earning the first thousand dollars we
hold to be very largo benefits. The'
arc just the qualities of mind and
body which arc most likely to
secure business success in after years.
They constitute the best practical
education which a man can have as
a worJccr in this working world.
They arc gained in season for life's
purposes, at the opening period, just
when thoj' are wanted, when foo,;sh
notions are most likely to mislead an
inexperienced .brain and when, too,
there is a full opportunity for expan
sion and development in later years.
Men have but one life to live;, and
hence, they start from opening man
hood but once. And the manner in
which they start the purpo.ei they
have in view, and the hapits they
form, will ordinarily determine the
entire sequel of their career on earth.
To succeed, men must have the
elements of success in themselves.
One great reason why there are so
many u&cless, ineflicent, and poverty
stricken men on earth or, rather,
boys, seeming to be men consists
in the simple fact that they did not
start right. A prominent reason
why the children of the rich so fre
quently amount to nothing may be
found in the luxury, ease and
indolence which marked the com
mencement of their lives. It is the
law of God that wc should be workers
on earth ; and no one so well consults
the best development of his being
as when he conforms his practice to
this law. The workers in some
suitable sphere are the only really
strong men in this world. Am.
