THE JUDICIAL ERMINE.
We arc exceedingly gratified to
learn from so responsible a source
as the Chief Justice, that the bench
lias, by the adoption of tho judicial
robes, received such a reinforcement
of dignity as now to be fairly dig
nified. Were it not that this
we might have considered tins an
insinuation against the quantity and
quality of the dignity previously
, existent upon the bench, to the utter
annihilation of which base insinua
tion we should have devoted our
selves. But as there is no appeal
from the full bench, and the full
bench has decided that there is no
insinuation, and that dignity is the
right word in the right place, we
submit. We regret however that in
this cosmopolitan land it should have
been' thought necessary to adhere to
the customs of the effect monarchies
of the East. If they choose ill
fitting appopleptic looking dresses as
emblems of dignity, why should the
free born sons of the vest servilely
follow in their foosteps. It' now we
could have had something suggestive
of the tropics, something truly
national in its characteristics. For
instance, it would have been a most
striking and impressive spectacle to
see his Honor the Chief Justice with
a top knot of peacock feathers on his
head, a bone ring in his nose, and a
necklace of human teeth about his
neck, laying down the law. Young
.JIaiYiui could with' pride have shown
this to the visiting stranger with a
"there sir, is our crbblcm of dignity ;
none of your imported notions, but
a simon puro spontaneous combus
tion of tropical genius." We sigh
for what might have been,
THE MINISTER OF FINANCE ON EX
CHANCE. The Ministerial organ, in a recent
editorial, says that the iinpoitatioil
of Hawaiian coin is not the cause of
the rise in the price of exchauge,
and states a number of disjointed
facts from which are drawn various
rambling and illogical conclusions in
support of its theory.
The Minister of Finance has ap
parently obtained his financial educa
tion in the same school, for he says
on page 18 of his report in his dis
cussion of the subject of the cur
rency, that "lf,a private individual
had introduced into the Kingdom a
half million of silver coin of the
United States, the rate of exchange
would nave been the same as it is
But before page 14
was reached ho had forgotten his
lesson, and thorc says 'This deci
sion," (that silver should not bo
receive for bonds) 4,hndthe
effect that ono of the largest
and most responsible ilrms dealing
in exchange was driven out of the
market for the lime being. Thero
censed to bo competition among those
who sold exchange, and there began
to be competition nmong those who
purchased it can be easily
.understood that thero lies the reason
for the present rate of exchange."
He first states that the introduction
of half a million dollars would have
made no difference, aud in tho next
breath says that the introduction of
half n million is the cause of the
difference. Having thus made as
surance doubly sure by seating him
self on botli sides of the fence at
once, he calmly assures the confiding
Assembly that "The action of the
Government regarding its loan and
its bonds has nothing to do with tlie
usurious rates of exchange to which
the people submit," utterly ignoring
his own statement on page 12, that
"One of the most important steps
which the Government has taken
since the adjournment of tho last
Legislature was to substitute for all
the different foreign silver coin a
Hawaiian coinage," and his state
ment already referred to, that the
reason of the increase was the im
portation of the coin and consequent
withdrawal of exchange by a large
firm. Having thus labored and suc
cessfully delivered himself of this
logical conc'.u-ion and so bemuddled
the Question that nobody knows what
he thinks, he acts upon the maxim
that a moral should point every tale,
and "delivers a short homily on
economy, winding up his interesting
document with the vnluablc informa
tion that the remedy lies in paying
our debts abroad and spending less
