THE HAWAIIAN COINAGE.
ITS ACTUAL VAI.UK.
Oiir new born friend, the J)uily
Hawaiian has already become
infected with the prevailing dis
ease of the country, one of the
syintoms of which is a desire, to en
lighten the public upon the
subject of the National currency,
and the whys and wherefores of the
rise and fall of exchange. The -infant
has a mild attack, however, and
with vigorous treatment, begun in
time, we hope it may survive. A
nice little story is told, in last Fri
day's issue, about Mr. C. E. Wil
liams going into the Bank of California
and producing Slf0 worth of our
silver certificates, which the teller told
him were worth 9f cents on the
dollar; on the basis of which the
Hawaiian jumps .at the conclusion
that, as the certificates rcpresnted
silver, the silver itself was worth J).1)
cents on the dollar. This looks plau
sible enough, hut we do not know
the date or circumstances of the
transaction. The Bank of California
is the agent of Bishop &. Co., arid
they may have been willing to take
the risk of accepting the certificates
at 95 cents, forwarding them to the
Honolulu house, where they would
be worth 100 cents, and making the
five per cent, less the then cost of
exchange. But what the Bank of
California may or may not have
said about what they would give for
150 worth of silver certificates has
nothing to do with what Hawaiian
coin is worth. There is no need of
there being any doubt as to the
value of the coin, it is simply a
m'atter of computation from fixed
The following is made up from the
tables of the U. S. Mint, and shows
the exact real value of the several U.
S. silver coins. The Hawaiian coin-
age is on a similar basis :

1 10 900 114.722 11.858 118.58 .08117
For value in San Francisco deduct
2A per cent.
IJrom this its appears that a Ila
'waiian 81 coin has .90 cents worth of
wfy$lver in it, and that $1 in half
Ky&fcdollars, fl,mr'crs or dunes contain
ffpnt 84 cents worth of silver.
h sBut although a Hawaiian Dollar has
90 cents worth of silver in it, it can
miiiini ;ij!iiJl IJMLl
not be sold for 90 cents in San
Francisco, any more than a handful!
of quartz containing 90 cents wovth
of silver is worth that amount. It
is worth 90 cents, less the mint
charge of refining, which is 1A per
oent. It costs 1 per cent, for freight
and insurance on tlio coin from here
to San Francisco. A Hawaiian Dol
lar is therefore worth to a Honolulu
debtor who wishes to pay a San
Francisco creditor, in coin, 90 cents
less cost of transportation 1 per
cent., less cost of putting it in a
marketable condition 1 per cent.,
or 87.V cents. The other denomina
tions, by a similar computation are
worth 81-A cents on the dollar.
The question may be asked, if
Hawaiian coin is of the same weight
and liticncss witli IT. S. coin, why
should it not pass for the same?
The answer is simply this: The
American Congress has seen fit to
make a law that 90 cents worth of
silver stamped in a certain vyay shall
be' called, and shall pass for SI ; and
that -12 cents worth of silver simi
larly stamped shall pass for, and be
called a half dollar. The same
amount of silver stamped in any
other way is therefore good for us
more, aijd is worth only that amount
less the cost of changing it into the

A FAIR THAT WILL BE " FAIR."
It is undoubtedly true that Fairs
have been brought into considerable
disrepute, in some places by the unfair
device of the Fair ones by whom
they are gotten up and managed. No
objection of this kind can be urged
against this J library Fair. A Fair
valuation will be placed on all goods
and they will be sold so far as pos
sible at the same prices at which they
can be purchased at retail at the
stores. No one who patronizes this
Fair will receive any unfair treatment
or have any reason to complain of
having Fared badly.
THE SATURDAY PRESS AND MR.
The lurid phenomenon who inspires
the editorials of the Saturday Press
should have Mr. Gibson's life in
sured forthwith. To be sure the law
does not allow a person to insure
another's life unless he haB an in
terest in the insured ; but we think
that the Press has' a larger insurable
iuterest in the life of the aforesaid
thau any other man, woman or child
in existence. We sadly fear that
were Mr. Gibson to be removed
from the scenes which are won't
to be made glad by his presence,
that the Saturday Press would
scarce survive to mourn his loss.
We all know that Mr. Gibson is a
gay deceiver ; that he has no more
principal than a hawk in a hen roost,
and that lie is not to bo trusted
further than yon can fling a bull by
the tail; but what of it!
If you catch him stealing your
chickens, neighbor, givo him iits,
and we will shout "haul in" and do
our bout to help you put him in tho
lock-up. Bui if you arc going to
kill him, take a rapier, not a blud-
gcon. It is as effective and a great
