A timely measure of tho last ses
sion of the Legislature was that for
tho prevention of disease among
animals. It is doubtful if a belter
investment of the public money
could be made, proportionately, than
the item in the Appropriation Hill
to provide a salary for a competent
veterinary surgeon. It is a pity
that the low state of finances did not
permit the Legislature to make a
more liberal grant for the purposes
of the Act referred to. However, a
public vctciinarinn, highly recom
mended, has begun his duties, a
board of inspectors lias been ap
pointed and got to work, and a
quarantine station 13 to be prepared
as soon as possible. It appears that
the terrible disease of glanders, all
tho more necessary to be suppressed
because communicable to man, is
more prevalent on the Islands than
would have been admitted at the
time of tho Legislature. There is
thcrcfoic a weighty responsibility
upon tho Minister of the Interior to
have the disease, which undoubtedly,
is an importation, stamped out.
From the manner in which action
has-so far been taken, there is ground
for conlldcuce that the utmost that
can be done under the measure and
means alfoided by the Legislature
' will be can ied out. Dr. llrodie,V.
S., is, we. believe, the light man in
the. right place. Resides having
graduated from a veterinary college
of very high repute, ho has had the
advantage of valuable practice in
Illinois, and Ii'h old instructor, Dr.
McKaehran, of .Montreal, lias voltin
' leered to give him advice upon criti
cal points if desired. As to Dr.
McEaehran'u .standing, and hence
the value that may be set upon his
training-and advice, il is enough to
say that liu was winl for to Canada
by the United Stales authorities, to
go to Portland, Maine, when the foot
and mouth disease broke out in the
cattle quarantine there. We under
stand that tho course decided upon
by the board referred to, is not to
': indiscriminately consign 'ill infected
horses to slaughter, but to confine
, the milder cases in quarantine where
the development and treatment of
the disease may be studied. Now
that wo have a bkillcd veterinarian in
the public service, with methods in
course of perfection for stamping
Lout the disease, , it is important that
'owners of horses should confidently
vconou r and co-opcrato with the
niTann-omcnts. Evorv animal in
ifwlii'ch symptoms of the disease ap
pear should be reported promptly

country, in giving it a sound finan
cial b.isis. Hut tho diffcieucc be
tween the actual value of Hie silver
and the gold standard is not so groat
as tho profits on tho bonds would be,
so that the country is tho gainer by
the substitution of the policy of the
Legislature for that of the Govern
ment. It is better, also, that tho
country should assume the burden
of providing its own currency, hud
pay the debt at once, than that it
should place itself as a debtor in the
hands of a foreign capitalist. If
the redemption of the silver certifi
cates now is going to be a costly
piece of business, how much more so
would be the redemption of the
bonds in a quarter of a century
hence? Moreover, let us consider
tho great indirect loss to tiio country
from having, in all that period, a
currency that would not pay our
A contemporary lias discovered
that people who maintain faultless
head covering have more of value on
the outside than on tho inside of
their skulls. It is too bad that the
editor of the IHimxtin cannot buy a
new hat once in a, year without hav
ing it pointed out in such an insult
i nr manner.
A complaint is communicated to
the Advertiser, in the old, old tone,
that Mr. Spreckcls was not allowed
to exchange the second half-million'
of silver for bonds. This outrage
upon Mr. Spreckcls is brought home
to the judges, who concurred with
the lawyers. What a bore it is to
have judges who will administer the
laws, 'regardless of tho mighty in
fluences that may be party to the
Mr. A. F. Cooke has consented to
leave his claim against the Govern
ment, on account of the "Julia"
expedition, to arbitration. As an
offset to threatened "disclosures"
in the case, the Advertiser publishes
Capt. Tripp's official repoit of the
expedition. Nothing could be ima
gined in worse taste than our con
temporary's dragging His Majesty
in as a co-partner with Capt. Tripp
and Mr. Clarke in the affair. It is
surprising thai the King should tole
rate every Tom, Dick and Harry in
a public job making a' target of him
to shield themselves from investiga
tion of their conduct.
The crisis in currency matters
has- caused a large amount of gold
lo be exported by the last steamer.
In one case a Chinese merchant
could not get a draft for his remit
tance because the bank would not
take fifty dollars in silver that he
offered with several hundred dollars
in gold. It is too much to expect
the bank to receive silver when tho
Government repudiates its own coin
age of thai metal. The fact of the
matter is that the nation lias gone
astray in the matter of currency,
and the only just way of getting
into a safe path is for the country as
a whole to bear the expense of es
tablishing a true standard. Let the
Government open an exchange where
all can get rid of silver that they do
not want without individual loss.
HOLLISTER & CO.
This old established firm has got
a very handsome display of Christ
mas goods, at both the Nuuanu and
Fort Street stores. At the former
store, they are exhibited in a hand
some glass case in the Centre of the
store, and mako a splendid showing.
You will find Florence, celluloid and
plush toilet sets at all prices, per
fume cases in all designs, handker
chief and glove cases, perfumes of
all odors, and many other pretty
things too numerous to mention.
In the way of cigars and tobacco
they carry a stock which it is hard
to beat. A case or two of their
ginger alo and soda water ought to
bo in every homo duriug tho coming
festive season. A call at either of
their stqrcs will repay you.
