THE CHAMBER AND THE CURRENCY.
A rumor was Hying on Saturday
afternoon, to the effect that the
Chamber of Commerce had decided
to precipitate a discount of silver to
bullion value, or 81 cents on the
dollar. This was contradicted later
by the correct report that the
Chamber had postponed taking action
upon the currency question, beyond
that previously taken, for one week.
It is to be hoped the Chamber w ill
do nothing so rash -as the action
rumor was ready to credit it with.
If a silver discount be inevitable, let
it come by natural process. A decree
of the Chamber of Commerce to
force silver down would look so
much like a bear movement on 'Wall
street as to excite grave suspicions
regarding the motives of tho actors.
On' the other hand the Chamber
might exert its influence for the good
of the country, at this juncture, by
proposing something practical to the
Government. Its memorial praying
for the conversion of a large amount
of Hawaiian silver into gold was
baldly practical, since not a half-'
dozen merchants can be found of
one mind as to what would be a
sufficiency of silver to retain. It
would bo practical to endeavor to
get the Government to tnko the
responsibility of honoiing its own
coinage at par. As we have said
repeatedly, if the present silver cur
rency canuot be maintained perman
ently under a gold standard, it is
the Government, as icprc seating the
whole country, which should bear
the loss of getting it exchanged for
money that would stand on its
intrinsic value. To precipitate a
discount on silver at tins ciisis would
be to make confusion worse con
founded. EDITORIAL NOTES.
TJto departure of a steamship for
tho Coast, on tho eve of the arrival
of another onu fiom the Coast, once
more illustiates what this country is
losing on account of having resigned
itself into the clutches of monopoly
in this as well as other respects.
The Advertiser interferes with
tho diversion of those interested in
our puzzle dcpaitmcnt, by giving the
answers prematurely. 'We could
only come even by sending a spy
into its ofllce- to steal its news in
advance, but would prefer going
out of the business to adopting such
methods of rivalry.
Victoria can discount Hawaii in
parliamentary decorum observed in
the breach, if the following ex
tract from a report of the proceed
ings at Melbourne is a fair"1 sample.
It was during a discussion of a Loan
Hill for -1,000,000 on Nov. 27th
"Mr. C. Young, on a clause in the
Hill, asked why the services of Mr.
Gordon, as Engineer of Water Sup
ply, had been dispensed with. Mr.
Servico declined to answer, as the
question had been raised Irregularly
during tho discussion. Mr. McLcllan
took exception to the statement. Mr.
Gaunson declared the whole pro
ceedings to bo out of order. Mr.
Bent said the House f-hould not bo
lectured by a man who nover paid
his washing bill. Mr. McLellan
retorted that if ho had a drop of the
convict blood in his veins ho would
drain it out with a knife. Mr.
Gaunson said Mr. McLollan was a
blackguard. Mr. Bent denied that
the remark applied to him ; if Mr.
s idiLl't &ii - v?JUl a& s. ,.&&&! .ttf.ioiA
McLellan would say it did ho would
do something which would prevent
a lepctition. Mr. Service interfered,
and both members apologized. Tho
Bill was then passed through Com
mittee, and the House adjourned till
KINCS' ART STORE.
Lovers of art can find a good deal
to interest and delight them in King
Bros.' picture shop. At present
there arc to be seen there several
recent works of much mciltbyMr.
Furncaux. Two of these arc paint
ings of Diamond Head, sketched
from the deck of a vessel oulsido the
reef, one being a moonlight view.
The cocoa nut giovc at the base
gives a look of life to the day bccno,
which lather enhances by contrast
than detracts from the sombrcness
natuially belonging to the grim old
sentinel of our port. A view at
Onomea, Hawaii, is another picture
by the same artist, the natural
grandticss of which is faithfully
portrayed. There is a very cheerful
picture of Cocoanut Island by a
local artist, which is owned in town
and was sent in for framing. A set
of animals' heads dogs' and deer's
by Miss Thompson, of Hawaii,
arc exceedingly fine, such as Land
seer himself would not be ashamed
of. Mrs. King lias displayed a
bunch of pansies, in which tho
natural tints arc exquisitely lcpro
duccd. Paintings on plush appear
in the window, in which tho brush is
so skilfully disguised that the result
looks like chenille work. They were
dono by Miss McCombc, now Mis.
Sutton, wife of tho Alameda's
purser. She has also executed a very
pretty banner in similar style, and
many other works in the shop.
Among the pictures awaiting frames
we saw a well-executed cocoanut
grove, by Mrs. S. B. Dole. The
photographs of the Myrtle Boat
Club's prize crew arc framed in
numbers to fine advantage. In the
sale stock there is a great variety of
high-class cngraviugs and other
pictuies. Kings' illuminated gold
frames, with internal borders of
plush, arc woiks of art themselves.
ISLAND NEWS. (
The Waianac Plantation, under
the admirable management of Jtfr.
J. L. Richardson, is proving one of
the most successful of our Island
plantations. The cane is in fine
condition. The coming crop will bo
1,C00 tons, and grinding will com
mence Jan. -llli. The crop of 188G
is estimated at 2,000 tons. Two
wells have been bored on this estate
to a depth of 700 or 800 feet, but
not giving flowing water, they have
been furnished with steam pumping
apparatus. With the pumping
equipments the two wells are capable
of maintaining 175 acres of cane.
The Waianac English School is in
a very flourishing condition, having
an attendance of 85 pupils, nearly
one halt of whom arc of Portuguese
parentage. It is said that the coming
term will find Mr. F. 13. Atwatcr,
tho piincipal of the school, doubled ;
he being about to take unto himself
a better half.
At Mokulcia, in the Waialua dis
trict, there are now 12 artesian wells
each giving an abundant supply of
water with no appreciable diminution
since first opened. What was once
a barren plain now contains nearly
200 acres of flourishing rice field.
The Waialua Government English
school, under management of Mr. A.
Clark, has 03 pupils. Mr. Clark is
a teacher of superior ability and en
joys the confidence of both parents
The Waialua Sugar Plantation will
commence grinding in February
coming. The crop is estimated at
700 or 800 tons of sugar.

feet of surface when tho alarm was
given, nnd tho men all being on tho first
iloor, tcized thcGrcnnde3 and had to go
up threo flights oE stairs to tho top of
tho building, which is siMy feet high,
and there was difficulty in gaining ao.
cess to tho lho on account ot the stoop,
ncss of tho roof nnd the absence of

they Instantly extinguished it by .the
