"Publicity is the breath of free
dom," was one of the striking
phrases uttered by a statesman of
another country in discussing secret
societies. This is a truth that needs
to be laid to heart by the people of
this country. Things of great im
portance to the public .arc too often
done in a corner. One of the results"
is to make those who dissent from
particular lines of state policy as
sume, on their part, an ait of mys
tery, and express views under breath
which should be proclaimed openly.
To the reticence practised by rulers
regarding the results of their secret
councils, many people oppose pro
found reserve respecting the whis
pered consultations of parties inter
ested in the main question of the
hour, whatever it may be. A sec
ondary and more undesirable result
is that persons lacking in moral and
mental balance, failing to obtain ma
terial for a discussion of the merits
of the question, but desperately de
termined to display more than ordi
nary devotion to the public interests,
attack with intemperate bitterness,
or eyen scurrility, every person
whom they can connect with the ac
tions or policy that they disapprove.
It thus frequently happens that the
responsibility for what is wrong is
placed upon shoulders that have no
right to bear it, and that a good
cause is injured by its being advo
cated in the language of the slums.
Why cannot such a question, for in
stance, as that of tho currency, be
.discussed upon its merits, without
crimination and recrimination of
persons who arc only indirectly con
nected with' the matter? Apologists
for the Government for defenders
or exponents of its currency policy,
or want of policy, it lias had none
are primarily responsible for the
' nasty things that have been said
upon that question, in having stig
matized as "conspirators" some of
the foremost business men of the
country, and abused them for having
got the better of the Government in
'its admittedly illegal arrangements
with them. All the unpleasantness
engendered by the currency ques
tion might have been avoided had
the Government from the outset
taken the public into its confidence.
As the first of December approached
and the merchants were obliged to
set their liou&es in order for the in
auguration of the gold standard,
they were left in doubt as to the
Government's own preparedness for
tile change. Consequently their ar
rangements were of necessityfounded
upon conjecture, and their decision
was qualified by an "if." "If the
Government evince n reusonublo de
sire to cany out the law, provide si
gold deposit approsimntipg to the
amount, of certificates redeemable in
gold, nml engage to preserve- llio
equilibrium between gold and silver
In circulation as tho law dltccts,
then vu shall treat tho certificates as
tender for gold and assist us far
as possible the execution of the
law." That was the decision of tins
chief private promoters of the Cur
rency Act, and we think it was acted
upon so long as there seemed to be
any probability of the conditions be
ing fulfilled. Yet, when doubt was
cast upon the fidelity of tho Govern
ment, did the Government attempt
to show that the doubt was unfound
ed, by a frank statement of what its
intentions were in the matter? It
docs not appear so. Instead, its
apologists tried to throw all the
blame for the confusion that had
ensued on account of a lack of gold
in the treasury, upon certain busi
ness linns. Hence, the acrimony
and irrelevant personalities of the
past few days. Verily, there is need
for "the breath of freedom" to
course through the public affairs of
At a meeting this forcnobn the
Chamber of Commerce decided to
send a committee to confer with the
Cabinet upon the currency. It is to
be hoped wise counsels on both sides
will rule the conference, and bring
the present lamentable deadlock to a
Professor Agassiz's lecture upon
the modern theory of coral reefs
will be given at the Y. M. C. A.
Hall on Friday evening. The pro
fessor's investigations in these
Islands during his present visit will
enable him to speak with confidence
upon the origin and comparative
size of the group, and upon the pro
bable manner of the introduction of
vegetable and animal life. We
understand that in spile of the
weightyauthority of the Genealogical
Report to the Legislature, lie is
unable to support the theory of a
CEORCE AUCUSTUS SALA.
This distinguished journalist, who.
has written for one paper alone,
7,000 editorial articles, spent over
three hours in this city yesterday.
It was known when the Alameda
arrived that he was on board the
Australia. A committee from the
representatives of the press in Hono
lulu should have welcomed him, but
when the Bulletin reporter went to
the wharf he was surprised to find
only one editor present. The steamer
was nearing the wharf, but long
before it got 'up this lonely-looking
editor jumped into a boat, followed
by the repot tor. A "lance at the
upper deck being made, sure enough,
there was Mr. Sala, wearing his toilet
trade mark a white waistcoat.
Three minutes more and we were
alongside the great writer, grasping
him by the hand and extending an
aloha. He expressed himself de
lighted with what lie had already
seen' of the Islands from the vessel.
On being asked whether he intended
to stay over, he replied, it was im
possible, as he bad to meet his wife
in'Mclbourne on a certain day, and
as she ruled the roost he must be
there. The pictures we have seen of
him arc pretty correct. Ho has
somewhat of a ruddy face and nose,
showing that his attention to cookery
lias not been lost on him. Mr. Sola
is a very entertaining conversation
alist, full of anecdote and prolific in
striking remarks, and soon makes
you feel quite at ease in his pre
sence, Tho steamer was now along
side the wharf and other journalists
were quickly on board to welcome
him. Ho brought with him presents
and letters to His Majesty the King
and II. M. Queen Emma from the
Baroness Burdett Coutt3. Mr. Sala
was first taken to the Palace where,
in the absence of Major Purvis, Vice-
Chamberlain, ho was conducted into
the presence of His Majesty by the
Adjutant of the Household. Tie
was delighted with his- short visit,
and thought Ilia Majesty very enter
taining and well-read. Mr. Sala bad
previously met the King at a dinner
in London. Tho residence of II. M.
Queen Emma was next visited, where
lie simply left his commissions and
card, not seeing Her Majesty. After
satisfying a wisli of his to have a
branch of the Bougauvillia vine, lie
was next driven to the vicinities of
the Chinese Theatre, Oaliu Prison
and the Fislt Market. At the latter
place bo alighted nml inspected the
different kinds of fish aud was also
shown somo poi. llo finally pulled
up at tho stoic of Mcssts. Geo. W.
Mucfnrhuio & Co., where- a number
of gentlemen were waiting for him.
Mr. E. C. Macfurluno at onco tele
phoned to the Hawaiian Hotel Stables
for a coach, and soon afterwards Mr.
Sala, nccompanicd by several gentle
men, were on the road to Wnikikl,
the beautiful seaside residence of
Col. Geo. W. Maefatlane being
reached in nineteen minutes. After
a glass of'4ino champagne, indulged
in by all Bavo a member of the cold
water brigade, the party took a turn
round the l'atk and then lcturncd to
the wharf, where the distinguished
visitor got nboatd the Australia.
After many warm alohas and wishes
for a pleasant voyage the party bade
farewell and the noble ship soon left
her dock to proceed on her journey
to the Colonics.
Wo regret to announce , the death
of Capt. J. M. Oat, Sr., which took
place at his residence this afternoon,
thirteen minutes past one o'clock.
The decensed has been failing very
fast for the past two weeks, and his
death was not unexpected. Mr. Oat
was born in Philadelphia, Sept. Sotli,
1809, consequently was seventy-five
years and five months old. lie ar
rived in these Islands April, 18f)5,
and at once commenced business as
a saihnakcr, which he carried on
with great success. On the 18th of
December last he celebrated the
anniversary of his golden wedding.
The deceased leaves a widow and
four sons, who have the entire
sympathy of the community. . The
funeral will take place to-morrow
afternoon at half-past three o'clock,
from his late residence, Punchbowl
