, The above would seem to siiow'
that, with the gold that the. Bunk
will circulate and the product of the
silver promised to be yet convci ted
by the Government, there will lie
enough gold presently for" nil curicnt
necessities of the country. A great
many people, who arc in n position
to know something about the case,
believe that thcic is not too much
silver on hand for circulation. .Since
tlio gold standard went into effect,
several large demands for silver have
been tilled not without n good deal
-of trouble und tiavel on the part of
those requiring it. One firm with a
largo pay toll, we know, paid ont
gold on Saturday last to persons
receiving no more than ten dollars.
Similar confidence in everything
coming out all right witli the silver
currency, on the pait of the business
people generally, would boon prove
whether there was too much silver
or not. Above all, it is incumbcut
upon the Government to set an ex
ample of confidence in its own
coinage. If there is not a surplus
of silver, the Government would lose
nothing in funds by lccciving it at
par from those having more than
their business rcquiies that is, if
. the existing silver currency i3 to
" staud. If it is not going to survive
at faco value, and hence will have to
be got rid of at uuy cost, the Gov
ernment is tho party to justly sustain
the biudcn. That burden would
amount to foui teen percent, exclu
sive of charges for conversion, on nil
tho coinage. Koiutcen is tho rale
of discount, as mentioned by the
registrar in the above statement,
which tho country is now paying in
the process of redeeming silver cer
tificates in gold. That late it would
have to pay for the transmutation of
i tlio remainder of tho silver into gold
', nun liliu bui.aiiu.iiy oiimu us nu.ir ;i
&Up$&iblc up to tlio gold standard. It
may uo possible to retain our present
'subsidiary coinage at par, but not
unless the Government ilseli evinces
mora confidence in that boinr done
'ttiau it is doing at prcsont.

PUNANOU PREPARATORY SCHOOL.
Tho Olnislmas examinations of
this well-oiganizcd, oillccicd and
equipped educational institution look
place to-day. llcsidcs Principal
Mcrritt, of the 1'unahou College,
there were present Judges McCully.
and Austin l'rof. Alexander, the
Rev. Dr. Hyde, and ninny ladies.
Our representative's time was neces
sarily divided among the different
departments, but what he saw nnd
heard in each denoted good, solid
In the Primary Depaitmcnt, taught
by Miss Lewis, the Utile ones went
through n very satisfactory ill ill in
reading at sight. They also showed
remarkable proficiency in writing
words, from their reading lesson, on
the blackboard, the errors in spelling
being very few and tho mechanical
execution excellent. The work of
this department can be traced light
up through all the others, and noth
ing better could bo said of it.
Owing to the superior accommo
dation gained thereby for tho occa
sion, Miss AVildcr's second inter
mediate department was examined
in Miss Hall's room. A spelling
bee was about all we saw them ex
ercised in, and it was very interest
ing and showed a high average in that
branch. The last two survivors of
a trying ordeal were vanquished by
tho word " kneading."
In Miss Carter's, first intermediate,
department the pupils read very
well for the most part, several evinc
ing promising elocutionary powers.
They also showed to good advnntagc
in arithmetic, working sums in frac
tions with intelligent readiness. An
interesting scholar in this room is a
Chinese boy, who compnics favorably
with his mates on their own ground.
The grammar department, in
charge of Miss Hall, the principal,
was exercised (luring our visit in
commercial arithmetic, and the
pupils won general admiration for
their facility in solving dilllctilt
problems of interest and discount.
Together with Miss Wilder' s pupils
they also sang very well. Excellent
discipline characterized this and the
other dcpaitnients. Judge McCully
addressed a few complimcntaiy
words to tho pupils upon their profi
ciency in arithmetic.
This afternoon the Christmas ex
ercises look place, but too late to
report. A well practised programme
of singing, and speech-making b'
visitors, wore tohave been performed.
Iolani College broke up for the
Cluistmas holidays at two o'clock
this afternoon. As the Rev. W. A.
Swan, the head master, is leaving
for a new sphere of labor in
the Colonies, the pupils attending
the school and several old, ones in
recognition of tlio high esteem the'
have held him in as head master,
presented him at the close of the
school session with a beautiful silver
watch suitably inscribed, and a gold
Aloha ring. Master Anahu, one of
the head pupils, made tho presenta
tion, accompanied with the following
testimonial signed by sixty of the
Uuv. W. A. Swan,
Dear Sir: Uofore you leave us
we should like to tell you how very
sorry wo all are that you arc going
away, and to thank you for all you
have done for us. We hope yon
will be happy in the Mission you
are leaving us for, and that you
will accept this small gift as a token
of tho Aloha your former scholars
Mr. Swan replied in suitable
.terms, thanking the boys for their
handsome present, and wishing tlicm
success. Mr. Swan leaves by the
S. S. Zcalandia due December 27th,

Du.vii Sin: Wo take pleasuro in in
forming you of tho good work done by
your Haud Gienndcs at our Factory In
Alameda, yesterday. A tiro caught upon
the shingle roof of a largo framo struc
ture, and burned furiously, and for a
time endangered our entire works. Tho
flro was burning over about ono hundred
feet of surface when the nlarm was
given, nnd the men all being on tho first
tloor, ci.ed tho Grenades and had to go
up three flights of btalrs to tho top of
tho building, which is sixty feet high,
and thcro was dlfllculty In gaining ac
cess to tho tiro on account ot the steep
ness of tho roof and tho absence of
cleats, which occasioned considcinblo
delay. "When tho men reached tho tiro
they instantly extinguished it by the
use of your Hand Grenades, although
the shingles were well.burned. "Wo be
Hovo your Grenades saved the building
from total destruction. PIcaso send its
