Sale of furniture at late u'sidence
of I). McCartney, Hcrctania street,
by K. P. Adam at 10.
Refute thi is perused by but a
few of our reader-?, the redemption
nf silver coin, other than American
and Hawaiian, at its nominal value,
will have ceased at the Treasury.
None of our readers can chide this
paper on account of any depreciated
coin they may have left upon their
hands, for two or three weeks ago
we gave full warning of the ollleial
notice in the case. It does not ap
pear as if there were going to be
any extension of the time of redemp
tion, and perhaps this is due to an
apparent indifference of the public
to the pleas put forth for such a
favor. If that indifference is due
to there being only a trilling amount
of the condemned currency atloat in
this community, so much the better.
It is more likely, however, that it is
due to the paper popularly accepted
as the exponent of Government
policy holding out hopes that the
time would be extended. There
must be a good deal of the coin in
the pockets of Honolulu people, for
merchants wcro in many cases deal
ing it out in change until the very
moment that they refused to take it
in payment of goods. Jt is a pity
that in an emergency of this kind
some common line of action could
not be adopted by our business peo
ple in time to prevent such a result.
Concerted measures should have
been taken by our merchants, upon
the' passage of the Currency Act,
or, at the latest, upon the publica
tion of the order, to secure the
speediest possible transference of the
coin to the Ticasury. Individual
action was taken by some of thc
wholesale and planters' supply firms,
whereby large amounts of coin were
brought in fiom the other Islands
and exchanged. For their neglect
of co-operation in such an important
matter the merchants are liable to
serious loss under the terms of tho
Act. Under the latter the con
demned coin wilt be legal tender at
its nominal value for tho payment of
debts up to the ;lOth of November.
No creditor can roftisc it at that
-value, in liquidation of demands
'"against anyone to the amount of
Ijflfty (lolhra. A resolution of the

dicts rumors of the impending dis
missal of Mr. Whitney from the

The low state of business morality
in the United States is painfully
illustrated by tho suicide, this month,

ing their lespcctive institutions Mr.

The Advertiser complains bittcily
that some of its contemporaries
persist in characterizing it as the
Government organ. They must bo
very stupid who do so, after seeing
the only apparently inspired article
in it for n week repudiated by the
Seventeen persons wete poisoned
at a wedding paity, in Illinois, a
few dnj's ago, by eating canned
fruit. Any article of food packed
in tin, particularly if it contains
acid, spoils very quickly on expo-
: sure, and sometimes absorbs the
deleterious properties of the tin and
solder. It is wise to leave the open
ing of cans till the last moment
before serving, and any contents
remaining after the meal should be
cither thrown away or turned into n
covered vessel of glass or crockery.
Yesterday the Advertiser attacked
Mr. I. C. .Jones, insinuating that he
instigated the criticisms, in different
papers, of the admission of Chinese.
It also attributed to that gentleman
a motive of icvenge. for the Govern
ment having refused to suspend the
regulations affecting Chinese immi
gration, when requested by Mcssis. C.
Ill ewer A Co. Mr. Jones has ex
plained to a Press interviewer that
the application in question was made
in furtherance of the petitions of
planter who wanted Chinese labor,
and was called for by Minister
Gulick, after a conference with Mr.
Jones upon the subject.
"The People's Cyclopedia" for
which Mr. Cutler is agent, with
hcad-quiirlcrs at the Y. M. C. A.
Rooms would appear to be the best
epitome of universal knowledge for
its cost extant. It is, moreover,
absolutely the best in that it covers
nearly double the number of subjects
treated by the larger cyclopedias.
This is accomplished by judicious
condensation, that leaves intact facts
and practical points, while being
economical in matters of opinion. In
the above respects, and from its
greater handincss, it will be deemed,
by a majority of tho people, superior
as a woik of reference to everything
in its line. This Cyclopedia is con-
j taincd in three large octavo volumes
i of over 700 pages each. It contains
;"i8,000 topics, f2 double-page colored
i mails, 300 smaller maps and din-
grams, and over 5,000 engravings of
I a most aitistie character. A cyclo
pedia is a necessity in every house
hold where intelligence is valued,
and indispensable to all who would
read the news of the world with tho
understanding. In a word, "The
People's Cyclopedia" is a liberal
education in itself to the youth who
peruse it regularly and diligently,
and the heads of families cannot
provide an equal amount of sclf
tcachablc knowledge for many times
the ptico of it.

.Miss Ada Campbell, a free-thought
lecturess, has been causing a great
commotion amongst our populace;
our newspapers have been teeming
with letters, cither in favor of her
mission or against it chiefly of the
latter class. Tho discussion still
rages and shows no sign of waning.
What appears to be likely to be
come an immensely rich silver mine
lias been discovered in New South
Wales, about 10 miles from our
border. A town (chielty galvanized
iron) lias sprung up witli the rapid
ity of a mushroom. Our Legisla
ture intends to extend a railway line
in thai direction, branching olf the
main north line, probably, at Peters
burg or Tcrowie. The exact direc
tion of the route to be taken is
agitating the minds of the people in
the northern village. The town by
the mine takes the appropriate name
of Silveilon. O. H.

S.MfiinAV evening, Sept. 20th,
a half white man as a policeman
entered the billiard saloon in Ilono
kaa in company with several natives
and arrested a white man, presum
ably for being drunk, and locked
him up. The jailor not knowing any
better kept him locked up nil night
and in the morning demanded $15
bail. The Police Justice dismissed
the case. The man slates he was
left in charge lw the Dcputj' Slicri ff.
The half-white man was a stranger
to the district.
