Under this heading the llumiinm
of Saturday tries to make out that
this paper is taking a ton "rose
colored " view of the situation. Our
intention has certainly not been to
express .sentiments that would con
vey the impression that the situation
was not a very bad one. Hut wc
recognize, what our contemporary
seems to overlook, that, while it is
the duty of every patriotic citizen to
be actively alive to the necessity of
securing better government, the ma
terial interests of the country de
mand that the best should be made
of the existing state of affairs while
it lasts. AVlicn commercial depres
sion is conjoined to political demo
ralization, those seeking n remedy
for the latter should be especially
careful not to add damage to the
interests laboring under the former.
In endeavoring to raise the siege,
care must be taken by the relieving
forces not to hurt the beleaguered
garrison. In regard to Hie currency,
for instance, it is of the utmost im
portance that tho Government should
have enough gold in the treasury to
redeem the silver certificates when
ever they become ledeemablc. Any
other event would be liable to pre
cipitate a panic, with an intermina
ble tail of depression. Then, without
a prospect of the financial clouds
lifting, the following strong state
ment made by the Ifawuiiun might
become true: "So far from there
being oflicc-scekcrs outside of the
Cabinet, the truth is there is not an
honest, upright, able man who would
now tke olllcc without guarantees,
probably impossible to obtain."
While wc do not admit this asser
tionholding that tho guarantees
required arc not those meant by our
contemporary, but guarantees Hint
the country could be depended upon
to sustain honest men in doing the
best they could under the diflicult
conditions under which they would
take ofllce yet wo should think Hie
person taking such a hopeless view
of the chances of a change of admi
nistration for the better should be
tho last one to take exception to
making tho best of a bad .situation,
However, we never took a rosc
colorcd viow of the situation, and
the only ground tho JTwcaiian can
liuvc for attributing such n thing to j
us is Hint wc conditionally accepted
the statement of the Advertiser Hint
tho Government was in n position to
pay .ill debts nt a moment's notice.
Its article is transparent enough, '
though, for, although it disclaims, !
on behalf of every one of the Oppo
sition, any olllce-scching propensity i
in the divided ranks of Hint portion '
of the community, it exhibits plainly i
its connection with those who arc
afraid to trust their political chances
with an organized pm ty of reform.
; We Miouhl rather sec everybody lake
1 it rose-colored view of the Munition,
I than run away with the idea Hint
I any Cabinet that might jump into
the shoes of the present one would
' be certain to be an Improvement.
, Anyhow, rashness, or obstruction
J thrown in the way of the Govern-
incut's carrying out of useful legis
I lution, may do more harm to the
country in a week or a mouth, than
even the misgovcrnment of years.
! It would be madness to tear down a
j house to get at a rat in the pantry.
.Some people cut down their ad
vertisements when the times grow
dull. It would be almost as wise
for them to take down their signs.
In dull times, it is those who do
most to get what trade is going who
pull through the best.
The President of the Planters'
Company objects to the gold stand
ard because live dollars in gold will
buy six in silver. So will the. live
dollars in gold buy six silver dollars'
worth of labor. Therefore, the ar
gument amounts to nothing.
A compromise is being arranged
in England, through the mediation of
the Queen's sons, between the Lib
erals and the Conservatives. The
object i to prevent a conlliet be
tween the two Houses of Parliament
upon the two reform measures that
Air. Gladstone is determined to have
passed at all costs. Fiuler the
terms of the compromise, the House
of Lords N to pass the franchise bill
before the redistribution bill is sub
mitted to it. This is subject to the
condition that the redistribution of
seats, to be formulated in the bill
Mr. Gladstone engages to submit
next session, will prove in some de
gree acceptable to Hie Conservatives
of tho popular branch of Parlia
ment. One of the ostensible
grounds of the Lord's rejection of
the franchise bill was that it should
not become law except iu con
junction with an approvablc redis
tribution of seats. Say what
you will about the freedom of
republics, nowhere does the voice of
the people have more direct, effect
upon current politics, and nowhere
are people's minds more free to be
formed by public discussion, than
under the monarchical institutions
of England. This is proved by the
visible necessity of the royal princes
intervening to save the House of
hereditary rulers from a direct con
lliet with the House of representa
THE PLANTERS IN COUNCIL.
The third annual meeting of the
Planters' Labor & Supply Company
opened in Campbell's building at
ten o'clock this morning. About
thirty members were present, repre
senting, after the President's open
ing address, 12,007 shares. Mr.
Z. S. Spalding, the President, in his
opening address gave an account of
liis mission to Washington in the
interest of the ltcciprocity Treat'.
Only two members of the Senate
committee on foreign affairs opposed
the treaty, and tho majority report
adopted in its favor was rcafllrmcd
by the House of Representatives.' It
was only necessary, while there was
any question of the permanence
of the treaty, to keep the ncwly
clectcd members of Congress from
year to year posted iu its benefits to
both nations. The subject did not
loom up so important to American
legislators as to us, and all that was
required to cause tlicm to sustiin
the treaty was that they should bo
well-informed regarding it. While
Mr. Carter was at Washington there
would be no need of any special
mission being sent there to look after
our interests. The President strongly
urged the members, of whom lie
would have liked to see twice or
three times as muny present, to deal
with ull matters coining before them
upon tho ptactlcnl'basis of the inter-1
csls of the planters. The high prices
of sugar had been an injury instead
of n benefit, as it would have been
better to have n lower price for a
longer period than the high figure
for the brief space in which they
had it. Extravagance in production
had been engendered by the Hush
times, and he found fault with what
he deemed extravagances in Hono
lulu such as high-priced telephones,
carriages, clc. It was easy to write
newspaper articles counselling econo
mical methods of production, and
easy to suggest lower rates of com
mission, insurance and tiansportn
Hon, but it was not so easy to devise
means for overcoming those draw
backs. He spoke agninst the gold
standaul adopted by the country,
holding thnt when wages were paid
in silver, and he could get, say, six
silver dollars for n sovereign, the
silver currency was better for him.
At the conclusion of the opening
address, there was not a quorum
present, but as there was enough
slock within hailing distance, that
difllculty was remedied in five
minutes, and business began with
the rending of the minutes of last
mcctiug by the Secretary, Mr. W.
Yesterday morning the Rev. Mr.
Cruzau preached upon the life and
death of Mrs. Bishop, taking for his
text Horn. M :7 " For none of us
livctli to himself, and none dicth to
himself." Our lives were an open
secret, and our real selves were
recognized by the world. Death
grouped together the results of our
lives. The last and Hie best of the
Kamchamchas ty in her last long
sleep, and her life was known to all.
Hawaii's loss was not that the last
of that great lino of chiefs died, but
that a true woman died pre-eminently
one true among her own race
All the more valttablo was such a
rare jewel of womanhood when there
was joined to it rank and potential
influence and wealth. Refusing a
crown, she so lived that she was
crowned; refusing to rule her
people, she did belter by serving
them. Her example was specially
marked and helpful iu the direction
iu which the Hawaiian race, and
especially Hawaiian women, had
greatest need of help. For fifty
three years her royal life and her
voice had borne unswerving witness
iu favor of virtue and purity. She
hated what was impure and had only
loathing and contempt for what was
coarse and low. her example was
all the stronger lor it's quietness,
and her potency for good lay iu her
true womanly life. The stupendous
change wrought iu the last eighteen
hundred years by Christianity was
due, not so much to the Sermon on
the Mount, or even the martyrdom'
of Calvary, as the personal character
of Jesus Christ. Mrs. Bishop's
character as a true wife was dwelt
upon to show tho paramount import
ance of the home in human advance
ment. The preacher saw the best,
if not tho only hope, for the Hawa
iian raco iu Hie development of home
life, which could onby be success
fully brought about by training
young Hawaiian women as true
wives. In the life of that true
woman was seen the power and
attractiveness of truo Christianity,
which she exhibited particularly in
self-sacrificing adherence to duty.
The preacher prayed God to raise
up man' more such Christians hero
in Hawaii, and concluded with an
eloquent assertion of the continuance
of the life of the departed one in her
At St. Andrews Cathedral yester
day morning Hie Rev. George Wallace
preached an eloquent sermon from
tho 23rd and 21th verses of tho 73rd
Psalm. In tho evening the llishop,
who had arrived that morning from
Kauai, preached a sermon, having
special reference to the loss sustained
by the church in Hie deaths of Mr.
Henry May and Sister Mary Clara.
The text was taken from the 13th
verse of the 5th Chapter of St.
James, and the sermon, which was
beautiful and impressive, was listened

in your issue of Saturday insinuates j
that Hie staff of this institution wn3
wanting in respect to tho deceased
Alii, because the school was not
closed on i'liday,. e., because tho
boys wore not given a holiday. At
a time of mourning it is more con
sonant witli reason and religion to
keep the children of the city quiet in
school, than to turn them into the
street to mako holiday, or into their
playgrounds to fill the air with
sounds of merriment and sport.
Iolani College did not keep holiday
on thu death of Kamchamcha V., or
of Lunnlilo, or of Lcleiohoku, or of
the other Aliis who have passed
away during Hie last 12 years, nor
as far as I know did any of tho
schools. If some teachers on this
occasion endeavored to establish a
new departure, the custom is ono
more honored in the breach than in
