. SILVER AND GOLD JUGGLERY.
Last December it became known
that the Gove; Client proposed to
take silver coin for its gold bonds.
When suit was brought by Messrs.
Castle, Lolc ajul W. O. Swiith to
compel the M'p'stcr to accept only
U. S. g"ld "oiii for such bonds, he
admitted in li's answer that lie ing
tended to 'csue them for silver, and
claimed that the law r"owctl him to
do so. T..o hist iy of that suit is
well known. The Chief Justice or
dered a mandamus be granted ac
cording to tho prayer of the peti
tioners, on the ground that tho pr -
posed issue for silver coins would be
illegal j tho full Court, while declav-
iug the same views of llic illcgnlily
ot the proceeding, denied tho prayer
for a mandamus, because they
thought an injunction was the proper
remedy. .Suit was then brought for
an injunction, but was d'sinisscd by.
Judge McCully, because the Minister
said lm ocn not yoing t 'nko silver
coin! But at least $000,000 of this
same coin was afterwords taken by
tho Ministers, and the Hawaiian gold
bonds were issued for it.
Tt is needless to remark that the
issue of the bone's under a1' the cir-
. cumstanccs was a high-liandcd, dur
ing act, which would only have been
done by those who believed them
selves safely protected by a power
behind, if not claiming to be greater
fhan the tln'onc itself.
It would have been amusing, if
not deplorable, to note the mental
condition wh'ch tho community then
exhibited on the subject. No one
covrtd deny that it was a pity to issue
gold bonds for si'ver coin averaging
nearly 20 per cent, less than gold.
But a few said that this was the
only way for them to get paid the
money wh'ch the Govcrrnient was
owing thorn. Others said it was of
no use to make opposition. It would
only get " Spreckels down on them,"
bo with rave exceptions, they did not
venture to say what they thought on
the subject. Some of the friends of
the coin importer sought to streng
then themselves by openly denounc
ing the suit as made by a set of
"socialists!" Wei1, possibly the
world moves. II pv se mvove,
Galeo; said after gctt'ng up from
his bed of torture.
The coivupt feeding of members,
as carried on by the Minister of For
eign Affairs, wi" receive further at
tention. Those who really desire to per
petrate the independence of the
country are opposed to extravagance
and the encouragement of monopo
lies. The Deport of the President of
the Board of Education is gener
ously spinklcd with "I" and "wc."
It is a failing of the egotistical old
A clear line of demarkation will
draw itself between the men who can
be depended upon and those who
cannot be trusted. And the country
will not forget the record.
A man who lends his name to a
measure or scheme of i-nportancc,
merely ta save giving offense ?s
weak. If he conscn's without ex
amining into the mciits of the meas
ure, he is worse than weak.
The outer room of the Foreign
Department, which has been half
office and ha'f editors sanctum, will
be pretty well crowded if Col. lau
kea returns to his? po3t and all the
other employees are retained.
An "Independent" member of
the House is one who desires good
Government, and has the courage to
stand by his convictions even if it
offends the M'nist.'y. or Spreckels.
A "National," ?s one who needs
only to hear the M'n'sterial master
whistle, and he wags Irs tail and
follows in meek submission.

MEMORIAL SERVISE AT THE FORT
Memorial services, were held last
night in Fort St. Church, in honor
of the patriot dead who fought in the
Union Army in the war of the rebel
lion in America. The church was
elaborately and beautifully deco
rated. Flags were festooned around
tho organ, and from the gallery
palm leavos were also tastefully
arranged upon the organ front and
in various places on the walls of the
church. On the organ pipes was an
exquisite red, white and blue wreath,
presented by Miss Hessic Dickson.
The pulpit platform was ono mass
of flowers tastefully arranged by
Misses Annie and Jennie Parke,
Mrs. Dr. Hagan and Miss Dickson.
In the front of the pulpit were two
stands of arms connected by a sabre
worn at tho battle of Winchester,
from which was hung a fine picture
of Abraham Lincoln wreathed with
passion vine. A largo picture of
Gen. Garfield against an immense
American flag looked down from the
ga'lery. Rev. Mr. Furman of
Pctaluma, California, assisted Pastor
Cruzan in the opening exercises.
Tho music was very fine ; especially
markable for meri' was tho trio "Lift
Thine eyes" by Mrs. Hanford, Mrs.
Cruzan and Miss Castle. His Majesty
the King, Governor Dominis", Minis
ter Daggett and lady, Minister Nou
mann and Consul McKinley were
present by invitation and the Geo.
W. De Long Post attended in a
body. Tho church was crowded in
every part and many people were
unable to gajn admission. Mr.
Cruzan preached an eloquent and
impassioned discourse from Ex.
12 :M. "This day shall bo unto
you for a memorial," in which after
showing that great men, and men
who sacrifice for great principles,
belong not to the nation which gave ,
them birth, but humanity. Ho
proceeded to show that the Union
Army fought for the great principles
of Liberty and Equality, and so
fought not for America only, but for
the human race. "No war during
Ihc past century, has so advanced
the cause of Liberty, as the war for
the Union in America."
Editor Bulletin : At the last
meeting of the R. A. S. the Hon.
Chief Justice Judd in his address
invited mechanics of this Kingdom
to participate in the coming show.
This is not the first invitation or
encouragement offered to our me
chanics by the above named society,
though it seems that again the
tl'mate will have to be alleged as
the cause of a chronic phlgcma.
Is thero any belter opportunity
offered to handicraft to show, teach
and to learn, than at an occasion as
If stockraisers, planters and hor
ticulturists consider it a necessity to
exhibit for the sake of study, how
can the mechanic remain at a dis
tance, can he ever arrive at perfec
tion as long as new ideas revolu
tionize present systems ?
"Would it not be of great impor
tance, if the mechanics worked hand
in hand witli the society to make the
undertaking to become a success?
Do they forget, that this little
sacrifice of time will be to their own
advantage at the end ; is it not tho
duty of every manufacturer and pro
ducer to convince a certain class
of people of these islands, that home
manufacture is equal to imported.
Wc have a foundry and machine
shops, great planing mills and other
large establishments where skilled
labor is employed, don't they pro
duce anything worth showing?
Allow me to lay before you a
plan, by which, if adopted by the
society and if carried out in proper
manner, an exhibition, as far as
handicraft is concerned can be made
very interesting and attractive.
Let the society furnish a rough
structure in shape of a house of
about 4 rooms, and the mechanics
and dealers (as far as imported
goods must be unavoidably per
mitted) unite to fix up a house as
cosy and also elegant as they can
afford without losing their materials.
First carpenters and cabinet makers
may show their skill, inlaid floors
(Parquet, etc.) introduced ; on cheap
muslin, paper hangers can exhibit
considerable art by producing dif
ferent original designs on each wall
and four different samples on-each
ceiling, the decorator will follow
with his elegant display of draperies
curtains, cornices, brackets, etc. The
walls should be adorned by pictures
painted by'local artists and framed
with stylish frames of homo manu
facture. To our upholdstcrcss an op
portunity wiH be given to prove that
goods of their own make arc not
only warranted durable but just as
good in design as the best imported.
In kitchen the manufacturer and
dealer in tinware will have a chance
to show us all necessities of a per
fectly furnished kitchen. Here
also tho painter will find a favorable
field to opperate, for nothing pleases
a good house-keeper more than a
nicely furnished kitchen. Grained
wainscotings should bo abolished
and substituted by marble or granite,
harmonizing with the base of range
and chimney, tiles for floor, etc.,
After only having fitted every
chamber as so far mentioned I am
quite sure the rough wooden struc
ture will bear a different inside ap
pearance, which again will bo changed
at every annual show. It may
appear to some like a dead invest
ment and mechanics especially pain
ters and paperhangcrs may not feel
inclined to exhibit, as tlicy could not
withdraw their work. But in a com
munity like this, wheie is so much
on (lit done to protect certain in
trcsts, I think a way will bo found
to cncoivago mechanics, without ex
pecting of them to saciifice more
I fear Mr. Editor, that I have ex
tended my remarks boyond the gran
ted limits for correspondence but
knowing, that a great deal more
wants to be said, I most earnestly
request you and the editors of other
papers to deal with tho subject oc
casionally for my own and other
Editoii Bulletin : In answer to
"Justioc" of Saturday Inst, I wish
to say for his bonellt that saloons arc
licensed for retailing cigars, for
billiards and victualling, which arc
in three separate licenses, and should
any of our guests require light or
other wines, they send for and pur
chase them at licensed saloons, and
wc can make no profit on it.
