THE GOVERNMENT'S DECLARATION.
Elsewhere in this issue will be
found a reprint of a document that
appeared in this morning's Adverti
ser. It lias no signature here, as it
had none there, so that it may be
cither a Ministerial document or the
production of our contemporary's
reporter. Although in the Adverti
ser it appears under the -words, " By
Authority" aud the national coat-nf-arms,
it is not for that reason
official ; for yesterday the " Shipping
Notes" of our contemporary were
placed directly beneath the same
august symbolism. However, the
editor of the Advertiser must know
what is olllci.nl and what is not so, in
the contents of his paper, and as he
treats the " Declaration" as a Min
isterial pronunciamento, we feel safe
in doing the same, taking the rik of
it proving another story for " the
marines" by the shipping reporter.
There are three items of the Minis
try's currency policy declared in the
v document in question. 1. In addi
tion to the special deposit of 30,
710. CO in silver coin on deposit, to
make up for the difference between
silver and gold, there is to be depo
sited a sum equal to 1G percent of
the face value of outstanding ccrli
licates redeemable in gold, to further
secure holders of such certificates.
This is declared to be for the pur
pose of providing proper security for
the " ultimate redemption" of the
certificates in gold coin. Without
any promise of a definite time at
which the certificates, or any pro
portion of them, shall be redeemed
in gold coin, it is not easy to sec
how public anxiety as to the " ulti
mate redemption " of the certificates
is going to be set at rest by this ex
pedient. There is no declaration,
even, that, in default of gold at any
time in the future, the certificates
shall be redeemed in silver with the
sixteen percent added. As the mat
ter stands, the deposit may be made
to-day and withdrawn to-morrow,
for the has "Declaration" no legal
force, no authentic authorization,
no date, no signature.
2. Tho Government leaves the
question as to whether there is or is
.not an equilibrium between gold and
Hilvcr, and that as to whether there
is or is not need of such an equili
brium, to be decided by the next
Legislature. Now, we have nil
along tried to avoid, in discussing
currency matters, doing anything
tiiat might hamper the Government
in tho administration of the law. But
we must say that anything nioie
absurd than this section of tho
Declaration "anything more cal
culated to sink tho Ministers in the
estimation of tlioso who desire to sec
common-sense and sincerity rule the
councils of tnlP could not have j
been drawn tip for litem by Inch
hitlet est political uneinies. It would ,
be jtut ns sensible to declare Hint (
they would leave to the next Leghln- ,
line, which meet about twenty
months hence, to decide whether
business is lively or dull thin present
year. So far as the disposition of
any ascertained excess of silver is
concerned, the reference to the Le
gislature will be approved by many
well-informed business people. If
the certificates can bo redeemed in
gold without recourse to shipping
the Hawaiian coinage, it will bo well
for ninny reasons thai can be given.
Yet wo do not sco that its being sold
for old would be a much gi cater
sacrifice than locking it up in this
double margin or deposit to secure
:i. The Government is deter
mined to meet all obligations and to
maintain the good credit of the
country, and to that end "will al
ways hold in the Treasury Uic coin
necessary to rcpiescnt in full all out
standing Treasury certificates."' Docs
that "always" mean that the Minis
try only intends to secure the hold
ers of certificates against loss, aud
will not redeem the certificates in
gold according to law? The present
difficulty in the currency is not so
much a question of the "ultimate
redemption" of the certificates by
this Government or a succeeding
one. It is a want of legal tender
for the transaction of business. The
special deposits may be increased
until they burst the Treasury vaults,
but that will not enable people to
pay debts of over ten dollars if thoy
have not gold to do it with.
An article in the Advertiser upon
the subject is more absurd than the
"Declaration" of the Ministry's
Independence of the Law as it
should have been called. At one
end of thp article, the question is
made a political one and at the other
politics are loftily disclaimed and
only pure patriotism professed. It
treats the currency question as set
tled by the "Declaration," but
makes no showing of the process.

In the Police Court this morning,
Frank Thywne, for drunkenness,
was fined S5 and costs. Express
drivers John Sullivan and John De
Grancs wore charged with violating
of express rules, but found not
uuiltv and discharged. There was
no ease against either of them. Mr.

Johnston, a well-dressed young
man, was charged with selling goods
of foreign product without a license.
He was found guilty and lined 50,
in default one month's imprison
ment.' The fine was paid.

Francis A. Drcxol, the noted
banker of Philadelphia, New York
and Paris, died suddenly Feb. loth.
Wiieukas, It has been repre
sented to His Majesty's Government
that much anxiety has been awaken
ed in the public mind as to the ulti
mate redemption of the Treasury
silver certificates in United States
gold coin ;
And whereas, the Government
has already placed on deposit the
sum of S:J!1, 71G.G0 (thirty-nine thou
sand seven hundred and sixteen
dollars and sixty cents) as a guaran
tee for the ultimate redemption of
such certificates as were represented
by silver, in United States gold coin.
His Majesty's Ministers, in view
of the public interest, and in order
to assure all holders of treasury cer
tificates that proper security has
been provided for the ultimate re
demption thereof in gold coin, have
now authorized and requested tne
Minister of Finance to place in the
special deposit, in addition to the
silver coin therein lying, and repre
senting the face value of the out
standing 'certificates not provided
for in gold, a sum equal to sixteen
per cent on tho amount thereof, as
u security for the cost of exchang
ing said silver for gold coin,
in accordance with the said au
thorization and request, the Minister
of Finance will pay out of the funds
of the Hawaiian Treasury the sum
necessary to provide the said guaran
tee or margin.
And whereas, the destruction of
the Hawaiian silver coin will neces
sarily entail a serious loss to tho
tax-paying citizens ;
And whereas, it is impossible to
determine how much of the silver
coin should be disposed of to estab
lish an equilibrium of currency, ex
cept by actual experience,
His' Majesty's Government pro
pose to submit the whole question to
the next Legislature, leaving the
Assembly to determine whether equi
librium between tne supply or gold
and silver coins, and the need for
the same respectively in the circula
tion of the country does or does not
exist, and also what steps shall be
taken to establish such equilibrium
if found not to exist, and for main
taining the same in the future, and
how any excess of silver, if found to
exist, bhall bo dealt with.
In the meantime, His Majesty's
Government are determined to meet
nil obligations and to maintain the
good credit which the country has
always held, and to that end will
always hold in the Treasury tho coin
necessary to represent in full all out
standing Treasury certificates.

a large and well ventilated structure I A)ll AVl,hu jvrM 0i.
has been erected in which the stalls
arc situated. To tho left is a car
riage house, inside of which is a
washing rack where all the horses
aro washed. Every precaution is
taken to prevent any outbreak of
sickness .among the animals, lime
being spicnd in the stalls every day.
As wc have staled before the stables
arc approached by circular driveway,
in the centre of which, just as you
enter, is the telephone room. Round
the corner is the oil and lamp room,
and opposite, the feed room, all in
the neatest order. There arc three
entrances to the stables altogether.
On the right hand side going in is a
small enclosure covered with sand
where the horses arc put "in, in'their
turns, so as have a little freedom and
a good roll. In the coach house we
noticed an elegant jump seat car
riage, a more convenient arrange
ment one could not wish to see.
Also, a wagonette the same as Mr.
Sala and other gentlemen rode in on
Monday, On that occasion Mr.
Miles had a handsome pair of sorrel
horses attached, and drove from
Fort street to Col. Maefarlane's
residence at Waikiki, in exactly
nineteen minutes. Mr. Sala thought
he was in the Flying Dutchman ex
press train. On cither side of tho
coach house are rooms where some
of the men sleep, so that a carriage
can be obtained at any hour of tho
night by telephone. The office which
faces Hotel street is a very cosy and
neat place. On the walls arc hung
all kinds of sporting pictures,
amongst which we noticed the horse
General Garfield with Jim Crow, up
and Langford Jr., with C. Gannon
up. Right off the office is the har
ness room, lucre arc iwo smaii
vacant places in front which will be
turned into flower gardens, and will
greatly add to the appearance of the
place. The Harden Hand Grenades
arc hung in different parts of the
stables, a splendid idea. None but
the most reliable men are used as
drivers. Messrs. C. W. Macfarlaue
andE. R. Miles, the proprietors, have
spared no expense in making these
model stables, and arc to be congra
tulated on their success. No matter
what it is you want in the way of
horses or carriages, you can get it at
these stables. You rarely meet
better appointed stables in larger
