Times are bard. Business is dull.
Failures are frequent. Only the
barest symptoms of a rise in sugar
cheer the prospect of the immediate
future. An unsatisfactory condition
of the currency aggravates the situa
tion. Still, there is no reason for giv
ing way to blank despair. Tbi3
Kingdom is not yet nearly so deep
in the mire of business depression as
arc many other and larger nations.
It has no army of paupers, if wc ex
cept a host of unnecessary officials,
to support. While the taro finds
moisture to develop it, and the ba
nana thrives, starvation, at all events,
need never be known. Wc shall,
too, it is to be hoped, yet find
enough sweetness in the cane to
modify the most bitter cup of mi
sery. Already the falling barometer
in the value of our great staple is.
proving to be not an unmixed evil,
in turning the people to seek new
currents of industry.
Yet, notwithstanding all the ele
ments of consolation which we may
find in the situation to buoy us up,
it is not right that affairs should be
allowed to drift on without any
attempt being made to shape them
for present relief. Doubtless the
development of the "sweet uses" of
' adversity will come in due time all
the sooner from being hastened by
intelligent effort. But cannot some
thing be done in the meantime?
Something to save to the country the
skilled labor and the willing intelli
gences that have done so much in
bringing about the recent prosperity
and the present stage of progress?
Just such a time as the present,
provided the treasury was replete,
or the national credit unimpaired,
would be the appropriate oppoitunity
for accomplishing necessary public
works. Labor can bo had at more
moderate terms than during flush
times, and be glad of the opportu
nity of getting anything to do. The
giving of employment to all ablo and
willing to woik would be a boon to
every department of trad and in
dustry. But how can the- treasury be re
plenished ; how tho national credit
be placed upon a better footing?
Fir3t and foremost, there must be a
better nnd.cr5tarjd.tog between tlia
Government nml the holders of tho
nccrucd wealth of the country. DIs
tntst of the Ministers is huiborcd
upon the strength of evidences that
they are In bondage to one foreign
capitalist, and that his wishes con
trol them more limn those of all
others who have a stake in (ho coun
try. To shake off this load of siis
plcion the Government will have to
accomplish a settlement of the cur
rency question in accordance with ,
the enlightened principles undei lying
the Currency Act. That of itself
would do much to obliterate the re
membrance, if not the record, of
many mistaken and unstatcsmanlikc
acts of the Ministry, and tend to
restore in a measure the confidence,
for the want of which the Govern
ment is without means to carry out
the various woiks of improvement
decided upon by the Legislature.
The Chamber of Commerce having
submitted suildry proposals to the
Government, and the latter having
tried a number of expedients, and
no concordance nor any approach to
a settlement having been brought
about, the whole qucslionjs thrown
back upon the Ministry. The res
ponsibility for carrying out the Act
is undoubtedly the Government's,
and the Ministers will have to grapple
with it in dead earnest. The alter
native to a satisfactory settlement of
this vital question is liable to be a
financial collapse, involving the pres
ent administration in an inglorious
termination, and srivina every in
terest of the Kingdom a set-back
from which it, may lie long in re
covering. Cannot tho Ministry, at this cri
tical juncture, summon to its aid the
ablest financial counsel that can be
procured, and propound a basis for
the successful operation of the gold
standard? Witli the redemption of
the certificates might be combined a
scheme for the sale of Government
bonds to the extent of the amount
authorized by the Legislature to be
borrowed for certain public works.
An arrangement ought also to lie
possible by which the ordinary pub
lic expenditures might be conjoined
with a scheme for the redemption of
certificates. Cannot an airange
ment be made with capitalists, for
iustancc, upon the basis of the silver
deposits and margin, whereby the
Government may have the outstand
ing certificates redeemed in gold,
while from the revenue collected in
gold it can gradually replace the
silver deposits with gold, and in the
end save the margin. At the same
time let the Government secure con
trol of the silver circulation, by get
ting the silver into its hands by every
possible means. Cancel ten dollar
certificates when ledecmed, and when
silver coin is demanded give it only
at par for certificates redeemable in
gold. This wotdd be fair, wc think,
for when firm3 or individuals need
silver in their business, it is presuma
ble that, dollar for dollar, it is as
good as gold for them, and there
should be a distinction between pre
senting a certificate for redemption
under the Currency Act and going
with it to buy silver coin. Another
necessary item in the policy, of
which this is only a rough model,
would be for the Government itself
to issue exchange, which it should
be ablo to do by arrangement with
some houses that command credit in
San Francisco. This, to prevent a
deadlock in business from exorbitant
rates of exchange. At the same
time the Privy Council, if it has the
power, should levy an export tax
upon gold, high enough to prevent
gold from being shipped out of the
country so long as exchange could
be got at a reasonable figure. Some
such policy as that above outlined
would avoid the necessity of await
ing the Legislature's opinion as to
whether there was or was not an
equilibrium between gold nnd silver,
for the Government would have con
trol of the circulation and be able to
see for itself the true relations of
.Something, at any rale, must be
