A CURRENCY DEAL.
"When Mr. Spreckcls came the
other day, the rcmaik went swiftly
round that something would be done
in the silver business now. This
has pioved to bo the case. Our
morning contemporary undci stands,
"upon good authority, that Messrs.
W. G. Irwin & Co. are picpared to
sell GO-day drafts on San Francisco
at one percent premium, payable
hero in silver." This action will un
doubtedly be a great relief to trade,
although in different ways it may
retard the consummation of tho gold
policy to which the country is com
mitted. In some degrco the sale of
drafts on San Francisco for silver
will serve the purpose of an exchange
for the public: That was what we
advocated, as a sort of safety-valve,
at the outset of the currency diffi
culty. The tendency of the expe
dient adopted by the firm in question
will be to draw whatever surplus of
silver there may be in the country
into the silver contractor's own
hands. Unless the silver were made
to move in some such way this ques
tion stood fair to be ultimately
solved only by force work upon the
strength of guess work. If theie is
not too much silver in the country
for the purposes of a subsidiary cur
rency, it is safe enough for anyone
to start a brokerage business and
exchange gold for silver for a rea
sonable charge. This is the only
thing lacking now to make the
change in the currency policy cease
to embarrass all classes. Messrs.
Irwin & Co. aic opening a channel
for business people to pay their debts
abroad so far as can be through
San Francisco with silver. If any
firm would next give a chance tb
the public to pay their debts over
ten dollars at home with silver for
a similar charge of one percent the
establishment of the gold law might
be brought about with gradual

SERMON FOR YOUNG MEN.
At St. Andrews Cathedral Sunday
evening, tho Rev. Alex. Mackintosh
preached a sermon more especially
for young men, taking his text from
" the 3rd Chapter of Revelation, 10th
s verse; "Because thou hast kept
the word of my patience, I also will
keep thco from the hour of tempta-
,' tion which shall come upon all tho
woildto try them that dwell upon
These woids apply in the first
instance to the Christians who lived
lj and suffered in the days of the great
persecutions of the church under tho
tKonian Emperors. Merciless and
bloody as the persecutions under
Nero nnd Domltlnn had been, yet
tho followers of Christ suffered more
under Trajan, who was n man of far
milder and more liumnno disposition
than his predecessors. In fact bo
even issued n mnudato that tho
Christians should not bo sought for,
but If they wore accused of boing
adherents to the new f nith and would
not recant, they were to be put to
death. This of course put bounds
to cruelty and oppression. To com
foittho suffering "Christians of the
church of Philadelphia, He who
never forsakes those who trust in
Him, vouchsafed the Revelation to
his servant John, that because they
had kept themselves firm and patient
during their previous trials, He
would comfort and support them in
thoso which were about to fall upon
them and now the words of comfort
apply to all who will confess that
Jesus is their only help and defence,
but still more especially to young
people who aro most in danger of
temptation, whose faith is ever beset
with persecution by hidden foes,
and whose hours are least guarded
nnd who arc the most likely to suffer
is nothing in the world, nothing in
ourselves, which we may not make
either good or bad use of, a means
to avoid and prevent sin, or an occa
si6n to commit it. That by- which
we dishonor God, by the very same
we may glorify him. Our under
standing, our education, our train
ing may be as the sun in the firma
ment, to lead us in our way, that we
u hurt not our foot against a stone ;"
but these may be also a meteor to
lead us into by paths and dangerous
precipices, till wo fall headlong to
perdition. The will may bo a "woik
shop" of virtuous actions, and it may
be a forge of all iniquity! The
memory may bo a book fairly writ
ten with all tho characters of good
ness ; and it may be a roll blotted
and blurred with all uncleanness. All
these things God by his own in
scrutable will allocs. He gives us
all free-will ; we can choose which
way we like. With his almighty
help we can turn the balance and
make everything in this wonderful
world a thing of beauty. Let us pray
then earnestly, "Lead us 'not into
temptation," and let us labor while
we pray. We can overcome the
temptations of the world with all the
aid our God has already given us
or we ought to be ashamed of our
very manhood. After describing
the way the insidious tempter begins
his work, the rev. speaker went on
to say : There is nothing in the
family relations so destroying to
peace and love as the' neglect of
manly and hearty devotion to the
requirements of religion by the
older members who arc somewhat
beyond parental control. Woe and
misery will surely betide that house
hold whose head once permits or
ignores a breadof his rules in this
matter. In my opinion, young men
of tho'present day do not make most
of their advantages. What is tho
good of tho education which they
receive, if so little results from it?
What stable institution is kept up
in this city by young men? Where
is the one body of young men who
arc banded together for one worthy
object outside the gratification of
their own pleasure? And oven' this
pursuit wearies most of them, and
their enthusiasm is soon damped.
This is the soil tho tempter likes to
cultivate. Here he sows his best
seed. . How many
young meu are falling short of what
HUhey ought to be as noble examples
of Christians' manly lives, of upright
and profitable citizens of a common
wealth which is protecting them and
yielding them means of subsistence?
Honolulu young men aro known to
be anything but cowards. Who has
not seen them rush at great risks
into all manner of dangers, but who
among those who have fallen from
grace, .who have under one pretext
or another ceased to perform tho
duties of religion tho duty towards
their God, and have broken their
baptismal vow will have the cour
age to jenew their vows, and enter
again into His service who is ever
ready to extend over them His pio
tecting shield. One of our Anglican
divines, the greatest preacher of the
present pgc, recently said that the
success of tho Salvation Arnvy was
owing to their not being ashamed of
openly confessing Jesus as their
Saviour. Who amongst those whoso
conscience has pricked them for
having been traitors to tho Lord who
redeemed them, and havo sold them
selves for tho wretched ovnncscrnl
pleasures of the world In unguarded
moments, will endeavor by tho help
of God's Holy Spirit to enlist again
in Ills service and to cam again the
reward promised in these gracious
words, " Blessed is the man that
endureth temptations, for when he
is tiled ho shall lcceivo the crown of
life which the Lord hath promised
to them that lovo Htm."
