The Jfuicaiiun answers its own
question by the information that the
dies for our troublesome silver
coinage arc in theposscssion of the
Director of the United States Mint.
Since the appearance of our
article, a few days ago, advocating
reciprocity with Canada, the mail
has brought ollluial assurances that
the Canadian Pacific Railway will
be open in the spring of 188G, with
a line of steamers connecting it with
Japan and China. It is confidently
anticipated that by, that route three
days will be gained over the San
Francisco route between China and
New York. We again submit to
the Government the desirability of
opening negotiations for reciprocal
trade with Canada.
Another until day is hastening
round, and still the currency dead
lock continues. This afternoon the
Chamber of Commerce is in session,
and, it is understood, lias a com
munication from the Government
upon the subject. It is strange that
the Finance Minister is never heard
of in the discussion of this, one of
the most important mnttcrs within
the province of his department. That
is, it would be strange in any other
country. Notwithstanding that the
Government has weathered all the
jtoras of legislative opposition, it is
showing great weakness in practical
administration. It looks as if the
Ministry must act promptly and
effectively in this currency matter,
or go under. The business of the
country cannot wait upon political
THE GENERAL POST-OFFICE.
Wc happened at the Post-office
Tuesday afternoon, nbout the hour
of closing the mails for the inter
island steamers, and the bustle and
hurry inside attracted our attention,
. as it did that of a crowd standing
jfr'near the door. Four express wagons
, wcro receiving the bags as they were
lnmiedly passed out one bound to
h of the steamers : Likcliko for
plolokai and ports on Maui; the
fjvunui ur jjciiuiuni, lvuiiaia, null
Hilo; the W. (I. Hall for Komi and
Ev'Kau; and the C. 1$. Bishop for
'if,' Kauai. The steamer agents had sent
iWord that the boats would not wait
Rone minute after l o'clock for the
Hmails or anything else, as the Kinau
jjand Hall wcro up for a trial of speed,
ifor which both boats and all hands
ubn tltcra had long been waiting.
Tho wholo force of tho Fost-otllcc,
was at woik, some ten or twelve in
number, receiving, counting and
fltantpin- the latest letters and
papers, passing them to the proper
bags, and locking nil securely, each
being labelled with ti lag to tho ofllco
destined, and not to be unlocked
till they reached it. Tito postmaster
informed its Hint there wcro 48 bags
despatched on Tuesday afternoon to
the other islands, containing -1, 110
domestic letters, -most of which had
been received during that tiny and
The steamer Alameda's mull w3
also tt very, huge one, numbering !17
bags, coiltuining 0,152 letters, and
11,011 papers and parcels. The
number of registered lcttcts and
parcels was unusually large, many
of them being Christmas gifts, not
for this city alone, but distributed
all over the islands. The postmaster
showed us tho pile of parcels, enough
to make one draylo.id if not two.
Tho total number of bags, letters,
papers and packages handled in tho
Post-office on that day was 8D bags',
10,571 foreign and domestic letters
and 9,011 papers and parcels, and
all this had to be done inside of five
hours. Ordinarily and for our do
mestic mail service tho. office is
amply large, but for properly hand
ling and assorting foreign mails, and
distributing them hurriedly on
steamer days, as was done on that
day, requires additional conven
iences. These, wc arc glad to learn,
the Government will at onco provide.
The Legislature voted 85,000 to
make such alterations in the Post
office as lite public convenience de
mands. Wc understand that Mr.
Castle's office is soon to be lorn
down, which will open the whole of
tho south-cast side of the building,
which has four largo windows, one
of which, that nearest to tho street,
will serve for the general delivery of
letters, another for ladies, where
stamps stud stamped envelopes can
be had. Also a window for the
money order business and the last
window will be for savings bank
business, which wc hope the Govern
ment will arrange to be opened early
in the year, and for which full autho
rity was given by the Legislature.
A CHRISTMAS TREAT.
Last evening, Fort Street Church
was fi'lcd with a merry crowd of
children, assembled to receive their
annual gifts off the Christmas tree.
There was also a large attendance of
parents and others. The proceed
ings opened with prayer by the Rev.
W. C. Merritt, followed by singing.
Mr. Santa Clans was very kind last
evening, for he not only brought all
his Xmas gifts over the sea in a ship,
but actually .had his vessel carried
into church, for when the curtain
dropped it disclosed on the platform
a very handsome brig-rigged vessel,
loaded with Xmas gifts and lighted
up with candles in a most beautiful
manner. The idea was a splendid
one, and much appreciated. A
small boat had been obtained, and
fitted up in n most complete manner
by a young man named Salter, in
the employ of J. T. Watcrhouso.
At the back of tho platform, which
was decorated with ferns and paint
leaves, -were the words " Merry
Xmas and a Happy New Year," in
red letters on a white grouud. Mr.
J. B. Athcrton said that there was
three times in a year when ho liked
to be a boy, Fourth of Juty, Thanks
giving Day and Christmap. He
would not trouble them with a
speech, as there was no doubt all
wcro anxious to get their presents.
The children wcro then called up by
classes,, and each received a gift
from the Xmas ship. Mr. P. C.
Jones, Jr., one of tho older scholars,
got a jumping jack; Mr. J. T.
Watcrhouso, tho superintendent, a
pumpkin; E. Jonos, a baseball
player, nnd Bert Burgess, a Demo
cratic rooster. One pleasant feature
of the evening was tho large amount
of toys, etc., contributed by the
scholars for tho poor leper children.
The sum of $10 had also been col
lected, and with tho toys will bo
equally divided among tho children
at Kakaako nnd Kalawao. Tho
whole affair was a, success from
beginning to cud.
Our community was startled this
morning with' the announcement that
Mr. Chas. J. Wall, tho architect and
builder, had died suddenly, early
litis mol'nhlg. It appeal's that the '
deceased went homo early last even
ing complaining of not feeling well,
and lcthcd to bed. This morning i
about 2 o'clock his wife found ho I
was getting wotse. Dr. Trousseau ;
was summoned, and gave him some
thing which made him easier, and
then left. In half an hour tho Doc
tor was again called, but when ho
arrived life was extinct. The imme
diate cause of death was hemorrhage
of the head. The deceased was born
in Dublin, Ireland, March 7th, 1827,
consequently was in his 57th year.
He lived in tho Slates about thiity
ycais, and came to these Islands
about live years ngo, carrying on
business ns an architect and builder,
lie drew out the plans for the Palace,
Music Hall, Kattmnkapill Church
rihd other places. lie leaves a
widow and nine children to mourn
his loss. One of his sons, Charles,
is working on the C. R. Bishop,
which arrives" in port to-morrow
morning. He has a married sister
living in New York, her husband
being an architect. The funeral
took place this afternoon at three
o'clock from his lato residence, the
Rev. Alex. Mackintosh conducting
