THE CURRENCY DIFFICULTY.
This morning the Advertiser at
tempts, in several columns, to vindi
cate the Government's course on the
currency matter. It would make it ap
pear that the Chamber of Commerce
is a band of conspirators, headed by
Messrs. Bishop & Co. A proposal
submitted to the Government some
time ago by the Chamber of Com
merce, ostensibly for the purpose of
bringing about a smooth -solution of
difficulties in the way of the gold
standard, our contemporary charac
terizes as carrying in it "suflicient
viciousness and illegality to be re
jected at sight. Messrs. Bishop &
Co. are charged with having broken
faith with the Government, in failing
to deliver up gold that they had re
ceived for silver undci taken to be
converted by them. The leading
business firms of the city are reprc-
sented as piling up gold reserves in
their vaults at the expense of the
community and to the embarrassment
of the Government.
If the Advertiser proved that in
the present unsatisfactory position
of currency matters the Government
was the injured party it is repre
sented to be ; that it had done all it
could to carry out the provisions of
the Act, but had failed of success on
account of having been hampered by
unscrupulous, 'selfish and partisan
operations on the part of several
financial and mercantile firms, wo
should be heartily ashamed of having
laid the blame of the existing state
of affairs upon the Government.
After nil that has been said, how
ever, tho simple fact seems to re
main, that, if the Government, had
faithfully carried out the Currency
Act of 1881, it would have placed
' itself beyond the power of bankers
and everybody else to injure it, and
have saved the community from the
' injurious, not to say disastrous, con
fusion that has come to picvail. The
' Act preset ibed the redemption of
silver certificates, of not less deno
mination than twenty dollars, in gold
coin of the United States on the first
of December kst. It was the duty
of the Government to have been pre
pared on. that date to so redeem such
certificates. Tlint It was not pre
pared, nml is not yet prepared, to
entry out the law, is the sccrot of
tlio whole trouble. If Messrs. RIshop
& Co. whom wc shall nllotv for the 1
present to defend tUcinsolvcs did
impose upon the Government mid
violate the terms of their continct,
ns alleged, the Advertiser itself ac
knowledges it was because the Gov
ernment did not adhere to the law in
making its bargain with that firm.
As for the chnrges of conspiracy
freely hurled nt the business commu
nity by our contemporary, wc can
give one instance to show how unjust
such reflections may be. One of the
linns most pointedly assailed by that
paper has shipped $25,000 in gold
coin, since the law came in force,
for distribution nmong the planta
tions of three of the other Islands.
That docs not look like holding
" reserves of gold secretly accumu
lated," but rather like a sincere
effort to expedite the consummation
of the gold standard.
The humbug pervading much of
our affairs is again illustrated by
two steamship mails to the Co'ast in
two days and then none for a fort1
An extract from the S. F. Merchant
was given yesterday, animadverting
upon the conduct of the "Gazette" in
reference to the Treaty. The item
immediately preceding that one
would show that it was the Washing
ton Gazette which was meant.
Someone tells us if the Japanese
arc not well treated here a man-of-war
from Jaruin will come along and
take them back home. No one, wc
presume, can say what will happen if
the Japs do not behave well toward
us, for wc have no man-of-war to
send them away by. Such a good-natured-looking
set of people, how
ever, arc not likely to require more
than fairplay and proper safeguards
against their falling into bad habits,
to become more and more valued the
longer they choose to stay with us.
A SUGAR SYMPOSIUM.
A cablegram to the New York
Herald represents English political
philosophers as fondling the beet
root as if in it England had at last
discovered the winning weapon with
which to combat American agricul
tural competition. The correspon
dent says: "These learned men
are now attempting, to teach the
British farmer how to profitably cul
tivate the sugar beet. It is easier
to grow, they say, than wheat, and
more profitable to sell, and, if Gor
don manages to turn over a lease of
Khartoum to England, that is the
country to emigrate to, because
sugar beets can be cultivated there
better and with greater profit than
anywhere in the world."
The total receipts of foreign sugar
at all American ports on the Atlantic
seaboard last year were 1,133,904
tons of 22-10 pounds. Of this
amount, 88,917 tons remained on
hand Dec. 31sl, and G3.C13 tons
were exported to Canada, thus leav
ing 981,404 tons of foreign raw
sugar consumed in the United States
during the year. Add to this 135,
413 tons, the amount produced by
the Southern States, and the total
consumption'1 of sugar was 1,110,847
tons, which is an iucrease of C5,882
tons over the previous year. The
sugar importations of the Pacific
Coast arc not included in the above
Among other reasons given by nn
Australian legislator, interviewed by
a representative of tho Jhitish
Trade Journal, for tho eagerness
of Sir Thomas Mcllwrnith, late
Prime Minister of Queensland, in
the project of annexing Now Guinea,
was the rapid development of tho
Queensland sugar industry. " In
Northern Queensland, two or three
years Bincc, land that was absolutely
worthless before had obtained a
Yaluc of 10 to 20 per acre. Con
sequently, there was an eager desire
to get tho swamp-lauds of New
Guinea, the northern portion of
which lias much in common with
Java, in order that money might be
made out of them by sugar cultiva
tion. Since then, however, tho
scene 1ms changed. Owiug to the
great fall in the value of sugar,
many of tho Queensland plantations
nrc worthless, mid the erection of
now mills is deferred, If not lmtcnn
itcly postponed. Consequently, olio
of tho main colonial reasons for i
annexing New Guinea hns dlsap
The following table of the world's
sugar production, abbreviated from
the liritixh Trade Journal, shows

A DOMESTIC MIRACLE.
"As I was walking down street,
this morning," observed Jones, "I
saw a man drop a brass suspender
button in a blind beggar's hat. He
detected the fraud at once."
"I don't see anything strange
about that," replied Mrs. Jones.
"Why shouldn't he tell the differ
ence between a button and a coin?"
"Ho has had considerable experi
ence in coins, I know, but I can't
sec how he knew it was a button."
"By the way it felt, of course.
Why shouldn't he tell it?"
"I don't think he had felt a but
ton before in twenty years."
"He has been married about that
long, I believe." Drake's Tra
