Nothing has yet been effected be
tween the committee of the Chamber
ofCommerce and the Government, in
the way of coming to an undcrslnnd
ing,upon the currency question. One
of the leading promoters of the gold
standard says it is not a matter of
reason but one of ability with the
Government. The same gentleman,
after personal observation, says there
is a perfect glut of silver on certain
of the other Islands. This is
contrary to representations made by
others to the writer within a few
days past, which were to the effect
that gold and not silver was a drug
in many out districts. The Gazette
utters a rumor that the proposed
arrangement between the Chamber
and the Government is to have
American silver retired as a legal
tender. One of the committee in
terviewed by the writer knew noth
ing of this expedient, which we
should think would require an Act
of the Legislature to adopt. That
the Govcrnmenthas no valid defence
to set up for its failure to carry out
the law, is evidenced to some degree
by an attempted justification of its
position, in the form of nn interview
between a representative of the
Advertiser and the Registrar of
Public Accounts, having been aban
doned after a portion of it had been
ANOTHER CONVERT TO COMMON
SENSE. A few days ago we had the plea
sure of showing that the San Fran
cisco Bulletin had broken with the
alliance of newspapers on the Coast
opposed to the Hawaiian Treaty. As
stated then, only a short time pre
viously the San Francisco papers
. were a unit in that opposition. Now
it affords us renewed and increased
gratification to number the leading
Democratic paper of the Coast the
Alta California among the chant'
pions of the Treaty. In a leading
editorial it has presented an array of
solid arguments for the perpetuation
of present commercial relations be
tween the two countries. It first
shows a distinction between the other
treaties before Congress and this
one, in that the Hawaiian Treaty is
not a new and untried thing. Even
if the United States had the worst of
the bargain, it would be obligatory,
it holds, to take into consideration
the interests developed under the
Treaty, which amount almost to
vested rights, before having the
compact abrogated. The Alta then
proceeds to show the importance of
the trade nurtured by the Treaty,
tho Islands being, with the exception
of Great Britain, California's best
market. Next U demonstrates that
the danger of (-oiiipclllloii wllh homo
liruiluctlons Iho great objection
urged ngnhist tho Muxicnn Treaty
docs not exist with respect to the
IMnnds. Wo quote :
"They prodtioo onco great staple
which tiicrc is no hope of seeing
produced in the United Stales in
quantities at all proportionate lo the
demand, and it is quite the ideal sort
of commerce to bo able to exchango
many products for one, since that
diversifies our own industries and
reduces foreign competition to a
minimum. The commercial position
of Great Britain is thought to bo
singularly fortunate because she can
exchange manufactured products for
raw materials, and San Francisco
stands in the Mime relation lo the
Hawaiian Islands that Gicat Britain
does to the less advanced countries
with which she carries on a large and
After presenting the argument of
the vast stake American1' have in
property in these Islands, the Alta
concludes as follows :
" If both home and foreign inter
ests should suffer by the abrogation
of the treaty and benefit by its main
tenance, as undoubtedly they would,
the policy of extending the treaty is
certainly not open to doubt. In
short, the trade with tho Hawaiian
Islands has been ' built up on the
basis of reciprocity, and in justice
to its own citizens our Government
cannot now destroy it by destroying
the conditions under which it exists."
Our scientific friend in Montreal
takes exception to Mr. Bishop load
ing his ice particles with Krakatoa
dust. The recognition of anything
more abundant under tho snn than
ice at this season in Montreal, or
than dust at any season in IIouolulu,
would merit condemnation of cither
scientist in his own country.
The Alta California has the fol
lowing upon Tavernier's picture of
Kilauca: "Kilauea has been ex
ceedingly well painted in pen and
ink by many tourists, but'this is the
first painting seen in this city, which
comes near depicting this hell upon
earth, so graphically described by
Miss Bird, authoress of the ' Eng
lishman in American,' who wrote a
most interesting account of her
descent into Kilauea."
Captain Churchill lately read a
paper before the California Academy
of Science, in which he endeavored
to sustain the sunken continent theory.
He held that " Polynesia is now but
the remnant of a continent sub
merged, whose mountain peaks re
main above the surface." Speaking
of seismic action and the lines of
submarine volcanic action, including
those running southward and west
ward from Hawaii, he is reported as
"Along these lines daily earth
quakes occur, and the magnetic
needle then displays enormous varia
tions. His native helmsman always
called out to him at sea, ' compass
crazy,' just before a shock. When,
at 1.35 a. m., our recent earthquake
occurred, Captain C. was writing at
a desk with his compass beside him.
He happened to be looking right at
it, when he observed the needle
swing around from the N. by the
Eastward to E. N. E., and then
swing back by N. to W. S. W., and
return to N., around which point it
vibrated rapidly. 'His previous ex
perience led him to expect an earth
quake, which actually followed two
or three seconds later."
At Waimanalo on this island,
is a large stone quarry, on
the estate of Mr. James Campbell,
and it is at this place that the
manufacture of lime has been
carried on for sonic time.
Coming across n sample of
this Hawaiian lime on Saturday, and
having fully examined it, wc shall
tell our readers something about it.
Tho stone at this place is what is
called granulated shell limestone.
It is the same as is being used for
the outer walls of the new St.
Andrews Cathedral. The first lot was
burnt in a perpetual kiln, the sys
tem being to stratify alternate layers
of coal and stone. This did not
work, as the stone crumbled and
could not burn thoroughly. The
kiln was overhauled, other improve
ments made, and now a splendid
quality of lime is produced. It has
been analyzed by W. 1). Johnson,
chemist and geologist, of San Fran
cisco, who found 01 per cent car
bonate of lime. There were also
traces of silica, alumina and ma
ganeso. It is the finest lime in the
laarkct for sugar clarifying. The

barrel, says It answers till Hint is
required for Hie inninifnetnro of
sugar. Ho found that lbs. of
this lime answered thu siuno purpose
ns I J lbs. of imported lime, and
considers it fully equal if not supc
tior lo the best California Him; in
the market, and ho has tried thu
different brands. H Is being used
by Contractor Thomas at the now
buildings at 1'unahou. Mr. lno.
Bowler, the well-known plasterer,
says it is the best he ever saw. At
Walanac plantation it was used for
a cistern and piovcd lo be equal to
several brands of cement. Mr.
Richardson, the manager, always
used alum and salt in white-wash,
but using this lime they were not
neccssaryand he found it harder. Last
year 30,000 barrels of lime were im
ported to these Islands. This lime is
cheaper than that imported. Form
erly the ;nakers used to put it up
in bags, but it got wet, so now bar
rels are used exclusively.
CHINA AND JAPAN.
A war cloud has arisen between
China and Japan, over an outbreak
in Corca, in which a number of Jap
anese were killed. Captain Isohay
ashi, a Japanese ofllccr who was tra
velling in that country at tho time of
the disturbances, and his companion,
Mr. Akaba, a student interpreter of
the Legation, were cruelly murdered
by the Coreans. The Japanese High
Commissioner, Count Inouyc, lias
arrived in Cotea and gone to Soul,
attended by an escort selected from
the army and navy. Vigorous pre
parations for war arc in progress in
Japan, and offers of men and money
reach the Government from all parts
of the country. The wrestlers, to
the number of 1,200, have petitioned
the Government to be allowed lo
wervc with the land transport corps
in tho event of war. In China
some persons believe a war at this
juncture would be a benefit to Japan,
as French warships would rely soleby
upon that country for the supply of
provisions and war material.
Two private banks in Tokio the
Takegawa Ginko and the Higuchi
Ginko have closed their doors,
owing to fluctuations in the cur

18,950,159 are males.
