BANK MONOPOLY BILL
UNCLE SAM. "
The transparent and impudent, 'at
tempt to capture the Hawaiian Gov
ernment and the commercial advan
tages of the country through the
Bank Monopoly Bill, cannot fail to
wake up the Government at Wash
ington. The policy of the United
States toward our Government, as
is well known, is to favor the develop
ment of a local constitutional gov
ernment, which shall be sufficient
for the maintenance of order and for
the protection of the property and
rights of all residents whatever their
nationality. It is not. likely that a
measure which will tend to put the
Government under the control of a
monopoly, which at the same time,
has unlimited privileges in the way
of all varieties of business enter
prises, which are accorded to no
other business interests, will bo
tolerated for a moment by that great
power so intimately related to us.
We take it for granted that the
United Stales Minister Resident will,
if lie lias not already done so, re
quest suftlcient delay in the con
sideration of the bill, to give him
time to communicate with his gov
ernment, and to receive their in
To what auspicious combination
of planetary influences are we in
debted for this visit of ex-Governor
lie came, he saw, he conquered,
and went away assured of a direc
tor's share in the' biggest monopoly
ever yet proposed. The ex-Governor
invested live letters of the
alphabet in the hotel book, F. F.
Low, and is to draw untold wealth
in return from this little innocent,
unsuspecting community, a very
good bargain for him. It docs not
appear wnat liiturc investment, in
this country is expected. The ex
Governor of California is president
of a bank in San Francisco, so that
it is presumable that his business
headquarters will be in that pleasant
and busy city. His name appears
as third in the proposed list of di
rectors, those above him being Clans
Spreckels and W. G. Irwin, the
latter an old resident.
And this leads to the question as
to whom we shall see as the manager
of this all embracing business, bank
ing, railroading, steam traffic foreign
and domestic and all other matters,
public and private, from the appoint
ment of a Cabinet to the cashing,
no not the cashiny for cash does not
appear in this prospectus but to the
constant exchange and rc-orcchange
of one paper for another, of one
promise to pay for another promise
to pay, notes, certificates, and bonds
are to chase one another in a con
tinuous circle just like the wooden
horses on the merry-go-round. To
subscribe or underwrite is one thing,
to put down cash is another. Ex
Governor Low's contribution is not
substantial, Spreckels wc know and
the others wc known, and Governor
Low we should like to know as an
investor of cash, because as one of
six who' arc to control everything
within the bounds of this Kingdom,
it might be as well that like his co
directoi'Sj'hc should stand to lose in
case of certain eventualities if he
stand to win in certain others.
"If, as is not impossible, this charter
is obtained the National Bank opened,
business commenced, a great blare
of trumpets, a great blaze of blue
fire, a great collapse with accom
paniment of mnl-odorous smoke,

For once it appears that the whole
Press of Honolulu is unanimous, at
least the Saturday Press and Daily
Hawaiian have spoken with no un
certain sound. The Buu.utin is in
accord with them. The Daily Ad
vertiser awaits further developments
and the Gazette, if it possess or
prize the jewel consistency, which
wc have no reason to doubt, is tho
roughly committed to opposition to
this proposed Act.
If the native papers represent the
native opinion, as expressed on the
streets, they too are in accord with
their English contemporaries. We
do not reckon the Elele, as that is
no more genuine Hawaiian than its
The occasion, then, of this won
derful and unwonted unanimity is
the dread of the consequences of
still further enlarging the borders,
and strengthening the hands of this
" black monopoly."
Already the community has been
deprived of the services of the P.
M. S. S. Co., passengers and freight
between this and the Coast are
bound to the Oceanic monopoly.
What if the Inter-Island traffic come
into the ring V
Monopoly, galling as it is, is only
one of the evils to be apprehended
if this proposed Charter be granted.
" The Act to incorporate " is very
elaborate, and, to a first glance,
safe j but to those who read between
the lines it is far otherwise. Sec
tion 21 for instance, so delightfully
explicit in appearance, contains
within it the germs of unlimited liti
gation and wrong-doing.
Tho mere definition of " lawful
money mentioned in this Act, as
gold and silver coins of the Ha
waiian Kingdom, and the gold and
silver coins of the United Stales "
might be paraphrased thus: "Silver
coins of Hawaii, worth 70 ets.. and
gold coins of the United States worth
a hundred, may be held to be of
equal value in the transactions of
the Bank 1
When such unanimity prevails
amongst those capable of forming
an opinion, and that opinion is very
fairly put forth by the Press, it
must be hoped that the sound sense
and general welfare of the public
may prevail. In the Legislature
there are members who obey " ac
tive politicians," who have no right
to attempt to influence them ; others
there are who having no opinion at
all on financial or political matters
have very clear ideas, as to dinners
and lunches, their hearts arc to be
got at through their stomachs.
The struggle has been between
the two parties, the issue of the con
test will be a brightening future on
the one hand, or a fat monopoly and
a failing prosperity on the other.
THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE SANDWICH
ISLANDS NOW THREATENED.
To all those Concerned, on the
Islands: The Bank Charter Act
for the incorporation of the Hawaiian
National Bank as proposed is un
constitutional, and if passed by the
Legislature, and becomes a law, I
have no doubt must create a revolu
tion with loss of life and and pro
perty. It is. to say the least, a bogus
Bank Charter, so far as legitimate
banking purposes are concerned, for
it shows itself to be in reality a

sive Credit Company Limited," and

circulated in native, and hope it may
not escape the attention of His Ma
jesty the King. Ed. J
A number of gentlemen, most of
whose name have been associated fors
years with the welfare and prosperity
of this Kingdom, have made the
following request to the King and the
1. That they may have power to
carry on all lands of business, whole
sale and retail, plantation, mechani
cal, patents and coasting, without
paying any license or any tax on per
2. That they may (with the
consent of the King and Privy
Council) have charge of all the public
funds, without security, unless the
Minister of Finance shall otherwise
3. That thej' may issue notes
without any cash to guarantee their
repayment, to the extent of a million
4. That the holders of said notes
shall in no case be able to claim re
demption in gold.
f. That said notes may be refused
redemption in any form for three
months without rendering the as

may have to wait nine moths before
he can recover any part of the
principal, and can claim no interest
during that time.
7. That the said notes shall be
issued at the expense of the Hawaiian
8. That the association shall not
be held responsible for the redemp
tion of these notes at any time, ex

ment bonds which are to be deposited
against them; and the said bonds
may not be sold unless they par

to lend their capital, and any money
they may care to borrow, to public
or private persons, in this Kingdom
or elsewhere, without security.
10. That they may have the right
to transfer all the control and all the
power which they ask the nation to
give them, to any persons residing-
in other countries, without tho con

or tho people.
There is no need for comment, but
there aio names in that list which
would hardly have been here, had
they realized tho meaning or the
power of the weapon which they as
sisted to hold at the throat of the
nation and the community by whom
they have hitherto been so trusted.

unanimously adopted by the Cham

HONOLULU YACHT AND BOAT CLUB.
The more boating clubs wc have
tiie better the competition at re
gattas, and with this object m view,
the above organization was formed.
Heretofore it has been the practice
for the members of one club to carry
away nearly all the prizes, conse
quently the sport lias been devoid of
any interest. This certainly should
not be so. Suppose wc had six fully
organized clubs here, what fine and
exciting races weMshould witness,
each club tryingto win the laurclS.
With this number of clubs formed
an independence could be shown, in
that cacli club could subscribe a
certain amount to help pay for the
prizes, thus doing away with .the
usual routine Of begging round town.
The Honolulu Boat Club lias already
aWargo number of members, a lot has
been leased and a boat house is
needed. It is to be hoped our busi
ness men will respond liberally to
any appeal made to them to supply
the wants of this club. We would
suggest that subscription lists be
made out and the lady friends of the
members asked to take hold of them.
