As we have formerly btated, the
question in this Kingdom is not be
tween a bingle and a double currency
standard. It is a question of carry
ing out the law establishing the gold
standard. Arguments at this junc
ture against the single standard are
only side issues. At present a debt
of over ten dollars cannot be legally
paid iii tliis country except in gold.
The United States has insisted that
duties upon imports from other coun
tries shall be paid in gold at our
Custom House. The Kingdom pro
duces no silver, and it may just as
well have the more convenient and
the more valuable metal for its stan
dard as noli Those who have ex
change to sell can hold trade at their
mercy with ti depreciated coinage,
but with gold as the main circulating
medium they must accept a reasona
ble rate for drafts. Taking all these
things into consideration, those who
oppose the gold law, either covertly
or openly, are working against the
material interests of the Kingdom in
a variety of ways. It is on!' legiti
mate .to discuss the question in the
abstract in anticipation of a move
ment to repeal the Currency Act at
the next Legislature. If that is tho
meaning of those who are opposing
the execution of the measure, the
believers in a. gold standard should
know it and frame their policy ac
cordingly. AVc arc convinced that
if the silver men of the United Slates
continue to have their way, disastrous
results will before long ensue to that
nation. This Kingdom can only pro
cure immunity from those results by
in the meantime having its affairs es
tablished upon u gold basis.
HONOLULU YACHT & BOAT CLUB.
The above club was orgnpized a
year ago for the purpose of improv
ing the condition of rowing, and
causing mora intercut to bo taken in
such a healthful exercise in this city.
Last Saturday it celebrated its first
anniversary by holding ft regatta in
the harbor. The club has n largo
membership, a flno boat-house well
llllcd with boats, and in Mr. Walter
M. Giffard a very indefatigable
(secretary. IJis Ex. Governor Do
minis was elected Commodore when
the club was organized. At the pre
sent time His Honor Justice Bicker
ton is Commodore. The programme
put forth for this nnnivcrsary re
gatta embraced ueven events, Quite
a number of entries wore received
and as the timo drew near much in
tercut was taken as to tho final result
flf the various races. Klcgant prizes
were offered, consisting of cups nnd
Hilvcr .medals. Tho chnllctigo cup
for the six'oared senior race is nu
especially beautiful piece of work.
The mot ning opened out beautifully
fine and tho wntcr was everything
Unit could Imvo been desired for
rowing. For the icccption of its
invited guests the Honolulu Club had
obtained the use of the lntcr-lsland
Steam Navigation Co.'3 wharf, which
was llllcd up in mi appropriate- man
ner, and well filled with friends of
the club. Tho Royal Hawaiian Band
was stationed on the wharf and
played throughout the afternoon.
The judges' boat was in its usual
place, and decorated with flags.
Capl. Morse entertained quite a
party on board the Alameda. The
various wharves were well lined with
spectators, and the vessels in that
vicinity were also crowded. The
barkentinc Klikitat was prettily de
corated with Hags. Tho scene on
the water was a gay one. Hero and
there could be seen members of the
club dressed in their neat and pretty
uniforms of blue and white, in ca
noes, barges and sailing boats, all
dressed with Hags. The Myrtle Boat
Club's house was crowded with in
vited guests, who obtained a good
view of the races. The tug Alert
was engaged to follow the principal
events for tho benefit of the judges.
She is a splendid boat and Capt.
Bice did everything possible for the
comfort of those aboard, and to give
them a good sight of the races from
beginning to end. The Judges were
Capts. Cousins, Mist and Fuller;
Starter, Capt. Fuller; Timekeeper,
Mr. F. L. Clarke. The following
is the result of the racing:

Tippecanoe, II'. Y. B. C 0
The former was sailed by Luther
Wilcox and Harry Von Holt, and
had no difliculty in winning. It was
the largest canoe of the three and
carried considerably canvas. Mr.
Fred Whitney, who sailed the Mig
non, managed his frail craft very
well. The Tippecanoe sailed by
Mr. S. B. Dole fell out of the race
soon after starting. Time, 20 min
utes 4 seconds.

The Honolulu won the toss and
took the inside position. As the
crows took their positions, it looked
any odds on the Honolulus winning
the race, owing to the youthful ap
pearance of their opponents. At
the word "Go" both crews took
the water together. Before Wilder' s
wharf was reached the Myrtles had
obtained a lead of about an eighth
of a length, the Honolulus pulling
rather wild if anything. At the
lighthouse the Myrtles had increased
their lead. The race to the spar
buoy -was a pretty one. The Myr
tles made a good turn, while the
Honolulus went a little wide. After
turning the latter put on a spurt,
but it was no avail, as tho Myrtles
went right ahead and at the finish
won very easily. Time, 10 minutes

Tippecanoe, S. B. Dole, II. Y. B. CO
This was a very amusing race.
Dole took the lead at starting, going
off at a great pace, Low second, and
Baird third. Opposite the Inter
Island C'o.'s wharf Low got level
with Dole, and a ding dong rate
ensued to the lighthouse, where
Dole gave up short of wind. Baird
kept splendidly in the rear in the hope
that his opponents would upset, nnd
the race would bo his. However,
Low won easily and tho victory is
more creditable to him, as ho had
only jiibt previously pulled in the
six-oared race. Time, 15 minutes.

1 lonolulus otilsfdo. Tlicro was some
delay nt starting owing to one of the
buoys having been removed. The
Judges settled the matter, however.
A good start was effected, the lolani
boat catching water first, and obtain
ing a slight lead. A pretty race
ensued to the lighthouse, which wns
passed lir.sL by the Myrtles, the
Honolulu and lolani closo up. Be
fore the next buoy was reached the
Honolulus had reduced tho Myrtles'
lead and were pulling a beautiful
stroke. Tho lolani crew was two
lengths behind. There was very
little difference to choose between the
two former crews wheil they turned
the spar buoy. Both crews made n
good turn at the bell buoy, and it
was here that the Honolulus slightly
fouled tho Myrtles. On .leaving the
hell buoy the Myrtle gained a little,
but the Honolulus spurting soon
reduced the gap. -No change oc
curred until after the spar buoy was
passed, when the Honolulus gradu
ally crept up and in passing the
second buoy were a bare length bc
hiud. Just after this buoy was
passed the incident occurred which
gave riso to a claim for foul men
tioned below, m ado by the Honolulu
coxswain. Passing the lighthouse
the Myrtles got away again, but the
Honolulus wore equal to the occa
sion, and spurting gradually reduced
the gap, being beaten at the finish
by a bare length. The lolani crew
did not finish, but retired to their
boat house after reaching tho light
house. Time 23 mill. 37 sec. Mr.
Scclcy, the coxswain of the Hono
lulus, objected to the Myrtles having
the race, as they were in his water
at the knuckle buoy, and his crew
spurting touched the Stranger boat
in order to claim a foul. Mr.
Torbct, tho Myrtles' coxswain, also
claimed a foul wheu the Honolulu
boat touched his boat at the bell
buoy. The judges reserved their
decision until to-morrow.
5 Yacht Rack. Prize, Club
Medal. Three boats were entered
for this race, but as only the Pauline
put in an appearance at the proper
time, tho judges declared the race
void, the rule being that two boats
must start or no race.

The Myrtle Club had two boats
entered for this race, but did not
put in an appearance. At the
word "Go" the lolani crew shot out
right ahead, leaving the other crews
behind, and it looked any odds on
its winning. Soon after passing the
lighthouse the Liliuokalani crew
gave up. The lolani Club turned
the spar buoy about a length ahead,
but, soon after, the No Name crew
passed them and took a command
ing lead, winning in the end by
about twelve boats lengths. Time,
17 min., -17 sec.
It was a few minutes after five
o'clock when the last race was con
cluded, aud soon afterwards the
harbor and wharves were almost de
serted. The Honolulu Yacht and
