The Privy Council has confirmed
the removal of Col. W. l Allen
from the ollicc of Collector-General,
and appointed the Hon. Curtis
Iaukca in his stcatl. A feeling of
relief will temper the general dis
satisfaction over the manner of the
Hon. Mr. Allen's taking off, from
the agreeable disappointment that
we believe is universally felt over
the setting aside of a candidate to
succeed him who has not the con
fidence of the community. The new
incumbent has an official record in
the Department of Foreign Affairs
which gives assurance that he is
possessed of sterling qualities of the
kind demanded in the important
position he is called to 111). In pri
vate life, also, he is exemplary to
:i high degree and possesses the
heartfelt esteem of the community.
Wc regret to sec in this morning's
Advertiser even though from an
anonymous correspondent a plea
for the mischievous spoils system of
civil service. The fact that Col.
Allen has held his olllee for a period
of twenty-one year?, during which
different Governments ruled and
several Kings reigned, is sufficient
evidence that the rule governing the
tenure of civil service here is not,
"To the victors belong the spoils."
It is the duty of every friend of
good government to resist the enter
ing of the wedge to introduce- this
the worst feature of American
politics into Hawaiian affairs.
HAWAIIANS IN BUSINESS.
The Advertiser replies to an en
quiry made by one of our corres
pondents, as to the extent to which
llawaiians arc engaged in busi
ness: There were in the year 1881
(at which lime a careful analysis of
:the taxation of the Kingdom was
made) 31,000 taxpayers (including
females and estates) in the King
dom, 10,7G'J of whom were lla
waiians, or about one-half. This
half paid, in round numbers, one
third of the entire sum realized from
taxes that year. The Hawaiian tax
payers being numerically stronger
than other nationalities paid -a larger
proportion of "poll" taxes, but still
tho tax on tho real estate was one
fourth, on personal property bnc
cighth of their entire taxation. Aside
from the income derived by tho lla
waiians from tho rental of their real
estate, the proportionally large sum
they pay in taxes each year is earned
by them in labor and "business."
They are to be found working nt all
trades and occupations. They arc
doctors, lawyers, ministers and
teachers. They mnuagc lUcir own
- -,iw- -
aittt other people's pioporty, llilic
niitl execute conttnets fur buildings,

of sugar cane uud other products.

It appears that the article making
Lieut. Grccly out a murderer, which
appeared in the lrfircrffrer and was
animadverted upon by a correspond
ent of this paper, was taken from
the San Francisco Chronicle and
credit neglected to be given by our
local contemporary. Our contem
porary, until it disclaimed as it did
this morning any intention to hurt
Grcely, was certainly responsible,
even if it had given due credit for
an article re-published, without
comment, from another journal.
A NEW SCHOOL BOOK.
"Knglish Lessons for llawaiians"
is the name of a little school book,
written by the Itcv. W. B. Olcson,
principal of the Ililo boarding school,
and printed and published by Mr.
T. G. Thrum, Honolulu. It simply
consists of a vocabulary of common
Knglish words, arranged in columns,
with their Hawaiian equivalents in
parallel columns. Its author claims
for it no "special merit," but puts
it forth "to take a place not now
filled by any other text-book," "with
the hope that it may do good, and
win the favor of teacher and pupil
wherever used." This little book
should certainly be a grcaShclp to
teachers of Hawaiian youth, and of
still greater service to llawaiians
beginning the study of Knglish. It
can bo had at Mr. Thrum's Book
Store, for twenty-five cents a cop'.
A very pleasant gathering took
plane at Kapalama on Saturday even
ing, at the residence of Mr. William
Auld, the popular clerk of the water
department. The occasion was the
celebration of Mr. and Mrs. Auld's
silver wedding, and among the
numerous guests joyfully honoring
the occasion were His Majesty the
King, attended by Col. Hoyd, aide-de-camp,
Major Purvis, vice
chamberlain, and Mrs. Swan, Her
Majesty's Sccrctary,the lions. Noble

stance, many well-known citizens an a

ing began about half-past eight and
continued until about midnight, to
the splendid music of Mr. Bcrgcr's
string band. An elegant collation
was spread beneath a canopy in rear
of the dancing pavilion, the centre
piece being a magnificent wedding
cake ornamented at the base witli
silver work. At the close of the
feast His Majesty proposed the
health of the bride and groom, wish
ing them many happy returns of the
day and trusting that they would
live to celebrate their golden wed
ding. Mr. Bcrgor offered the senti
ment. " Long live His Majesty,"
which was responded to by three
rousing cheers and n tiger. After
some excellent vocal music and
social intercourse, the party was
gradually brought to a successful
termination, everybody wcll-plcascd
and happy, and wishing the bride
and groom of a quarter of a century

THE CREDIT SYSTEM.
Eui-um Bui.lltin 5 You and your
contemporaries arc on the right track
when you attack our pernicious
credit system. I say pernicious,
because it is pernicious. Its bad
effect is not only felt by creditors,
but it has a demoralizing influence
on the community. Probably no
other cause tends so much to en-
gender" habits of cxtMvhganbtii The
fact that people arc not required to
pay their bills mft.il the end of the
quarter induces many to procure
tilings which they do not really
need and cannot afford. Then when
juarler day comes they arc unable
to meet their engagements, and the
creditor suffers. In fact, I think I
am not far wrong in saying that some
unprincipled people incur liabilities
without the slightest intention of
"ever paying. To compensate for the
losses made by trusting this class of
customers, the trader charges a
higher price to thoscwho pay thnn
he otherwise would. At least, I
infer so much from what a business
man said the other day, when I
asked him if he could not sell tnc a
certain line of goods at a little lower
figure. He replied that he was
compelled to sell high to make up
for bad debts. Now, I really do not
see the justice of charging those who
do pay with the debts of those who
do not pay. Neither do I see why
honest ami frugal people in Honolulu,
as a rule, should desire three
months' credit; for salaries here are
invariably paid weekly, fortnightly,
or monthly. Then why keep the
retailer out of his money a longer
period? No doubt, a lessening of
credit would be a lessening of trade ;
but it would also be a lessening of
losses, and better do a smaller trade
witli no losses, than a big trade with
big losses. Many years ago I did
business with a large clothing and
drapery establishment in London.
1 was told by the manager, at the
outset, that their prices meant cash,
but if any of their customers wanted
accommodation they made an extra
charge of one per cent for en
tering on the books, and that an
additional charge of one half of one
per cent per month was made until
the account was settled. I then
considered it a very wise and fair
arrangement, and I now think if
business people in Honolulu would
adopt some similar plan it would
prove beneficial to themselves and to
LATEST F0REICN NEWS.
The Britisli Parliament is con
voked for the 23rd of October.
A dismal state of affairs exists at
Naples, Italy, from the cholera.
From midnight of Friday, Sept.
12th, till the following Sunday
afternoon there were 1229 cases and
C87 deaths. At many other places
in Italy the mortality is very great.
An Italian bark arrived at Quebec,
Canada, witli a clean bill of health,
from Marseilles, France, reports
the cholera much worse there than
is made public.
There is a terrible and general
feeling of bitterness in Paris against
England, war being openly dis
cussed. General Gordon is reported to
have taken two islands near Sennar.
The sheiks of the Dcngli tribe have
defeated El Mahdi, the False Pro
phet. The Canadian contingent of
00 boatmen for the Soudan left
Montreal on the 11th inst. It is
said friendly tribes will be forced
to join the rebels unless they re
ceive speedy assistance.
The Chinese Ministry has replied
in firm tones to the ultimatum of
France. It holds that China having
respected certain articles of the
Tientsin provisional treaty France
should respect the others. The
French demand for indemnity, it
claims, is not in accordance with the
treaty, is in prejudice of their
friendly relations and contrary to
international law. China is prepared
to withdraw its garrison from Ton
quin after the expiration of a month,
and the Ministry ask if the Govern
ment of Franco cannot wait till then,
when a complete treaty will be ar
ranged. It is deemed lamentable
that arrangements for making a pro
per treaty should be delayed by a
demand for indemnity j tho forcible
taking of guarantee and indemnity
is contrary to the treaty and compels
China to give tho treaty powers the
history of the Tonqnin question, to
gether witli tho protest of China,
and the latter Government awaits nu
opportunity to discuss the question.
Tho Tsung Li Yamcn requests that
Patcnotre, the French Ambassador,
shall come to Tientsin to arrange u
definite treaty, which will manifest
mutual sincerity and strengthen the
friendly relations between the two
untions. This would be tho proper
motlti of procedure) nccbfdlrtg to in
ternational law. The Tstmg Li(
Yamcn announces it will not be
moved by any man's orders. Paris
advices nre to the effect that orders
have been telegraphed to Admiral
Courbct to resume operations, ami
that he, on receipt of the despatch,
