THE CHAMBER AND THE GOVERNMENT.
Elsewhere will be found the
memorial last presented to tho Gov
ernment upon the currency question,
by a committee of the Chamber of
Commerce. Also, our readers will
see, by what is added from the Ad
vrrtiscr, that the "Declaration,-"
published and commented upon in
this paper the other day, is the
Government's reply to that com
mittee. There is not much to be
said, with the committee's proposal
in sight, in addition to the views we
expressed when only the Govern
ment's reply was published. On
the side of the committee there is a
clear and definite plan for the solu
tion of the difliculty. It ' beats us
to see where the hardship would
accrue to the Government in adopt
ing this plan, except upon the sup
position that its policy is to prevent
the carrying out of the Currency
Act. A suspicion that the Govern
ment is really desirous of obstruct
ing the wish of the people and the
will of the Legislature in this matter,
is strengthened by the evasive and
shuffling tenor of its "Declaration"
in reply to the committee. In a
spirit of concession the commit
tee asks the Government to fix
a definite time for the redemption of
the certificates in gold. The Gov
ernment responds with an assurance
not, however, in any binding form
that security will be afforded lor
the " ultimate redemption " of the
paper in gold coin. The committee's
proposal includes a scheme for the
redemption of a portion, if not all,
of the certificates by leading finan
cial houses, provided the latter arc
secured by a deposit of sixteen per
cent on all silver coins held against
bueh certificates. The Government
declares it' will make the required
deposit, but gives not the shadow of
a promise, not to mention a guaran
tee, that such deposit will be held
inviolable, or that, in default of gold
redemption cither at a definite time
or "ultimately," the margin of
sixteen percent will accrue to the
holders of certificates. One other
point is worthy of note. The Gov
ernment has declared the ratio be
tween the gold and silver currene'
to be sixteen percent. In view of
this, how do the Ministers expect
business to run smoothly until the
Legislature meets, while gold is tho
legal tender for all sums above ten
dollars and the preponderating cur
rency in circulation is silver?
A certain philosopher was annoy
ed by washermen, who washed dirty
linen in sight of his house. .So he
made a tent for tho washers, so that
they should hido their work from
the view of his family and guests.
Now one of the washers, named Ah
Kon Sect, was wrong in his mind,
being possessed of the notion that
his bead was so big that no hat
which he oould buy in any ttorc
fcoltug all the lime like n man with
a hue in his bonnet. Thin uncom
fortably did Ah Kon Sect come to '
lift wash-tub on the day Hint the '
tent was set up. When lie saw the I
tent he cried out, "Oh. thcroN it
cap for me," and. running quickly,
placed the tabernacle over his re
markable head. Straightway many
scorpions, and ccntlp,edes, and ants,
which had got into the folds of '
the lent, began to bite Alt Kon '
Sect's ears and torltne his scalp, so
that he howled in great pain, and
tried to get out of the infested taber
nacle. But he bad put his foot in
it, and become entangled in the
cords, and stumbled over the stakes,
so that his plight was every moment
becoming worse. Then he began to
cry aloud and curse the man who
made the supposed cap for him,
until the philosopher, hearing the
noise, drew near and asked hint how
he had got into such a terrible fix.
"Wiry," Alt Kon Sect replied in
muffled agony, "ionic 'mangy and
scorbutic youth' has set a cap that's
just my fit, as if to catch a foul
bird, and tied it 6n to the ground,
so that when 1 put on the cap I
could not get away, and 1 am sick
of smuggling and ready to die."
"Fool," said the philosopher,
"that is a tent I put there so that
you and your fellow-workers should
hide your dirty washing business
from the sight of my home. You
must think you have a great head
if you took that for a cap." " 1
have a great head, and this just fits
it. whatever it was made for."
" Well, then," replied the philoso
pher, " if the cap fits you, just wear
it." So saying he cut the tent,
cords and walked off, while the man
with the " great head" turned to his
tub, and seemed proud of his new
cap. The philosopher, seeing his
plan had failed, decided within him
self to build a high wall against the
washers, which would thenceforth
shut them out from the notice they

Pork-calcrs must feel pleasant
over the discovery that hogs, in the
vicinity of Honolulu, havb been fat
tening upon carcases of horses that
died of "landers. "We should like
to know what regulations, if any,
arc in force here to guard the public
against being poisoned in food and
against said certificates ;
Provided, however, that Iho treas
ury will make due provision for the
redemption of the certificates in gold
on some definite and reasonable
It appears to us to be at the very
foundation of any system that tho
holder of a certificate should have
absolute confidence in bis ability to
get gold, in 1111 emergency, for his
paper. "Vc therefore suggest that
the Government undertake that, in
the event of the gold in the treasury
being exhausted, they will pay, with
in a definite time from presentation

ment to procure the gold), all cer
tificates in gold.

withdrawal of gold v, e wpttld pro
pose that all applications for re
demption of certificates in gold he

one or two houses say Bishop &

Government will consent to the ap
pointment by the Chamber of Com
merce of a Committee as Audltois

ury books as "Certificates of De
posits." and "Special Deposits."

Tavernier's picture shown on Fri
day night last was a representation
of the volcano of Kilanca in a differ
ent aspect from that portrayed in
his former treatment of the same
subject. For intense realism of lire,
and heat, and vapor of smoke, its
startling fidelity to the rugged sub
limity of the cauldron walls, it is,
like the other picture, simply above
criticism. As a gentleman remark
ed in its presence, "It is marvel
lous how the artist could put such
hot colors on cold canvas." Mr.
Strong's pictures were a series, in
black and white, of illustrations for
Harper's Weekly, They are re
markably natural and lrvc repre
sentations of tho amphibious natives
and Island scenery. "The Arrival
of the Miu-iposa," is-the largest one.
It shows the steamer coming away
off Diamond Head, that promontory
being well delineated, and a muscu
lar Hawaiian in his canoe in tho
foreground, looking "as natural as
life." The exhibition was viewed
by a large throng of people through
out the evening, the pleasure of the
occasion being enhanced by the
Band's excellent music.
