A FLIPPANT CENSOR.
This morning the Advertiser
breaks out in a new spot on the cur
rency question. It opens with a
reference to its contemporaries as
exorciscrs of evil spirits, who cannot
get at the devil of bad government
at the head of affairs. They would
fain, according to this jaunty ser
vant of the fellow lie talks about,
get his boss out by prayer and fast
ing, except for an aversion to pray
ing on empty .stomachs. Anything
about "empty stomachs" is refresh
ingly cool coming from an apologist
of those who made such a feast at
the public crib as to speedily pro
duce a famine there. Cooler still is
such a reference emanating from an
institution that would not be in
existence to-day if it had not been
nourished and sustained by lavish
bounties from the national treasury.
Our morning contemporary's flip
pant assurance upon the question of
motives is only paralleled by its
stultification of its recent record in
its utterances of this date upon the
A few weeks ago the Advertiser
made a tierce onslaught upon the
members of the Chamber of Com
merce, for their efforts to have the
Currency Act carried out. It
charged them virtually with being
public robbers, having an eye niaiii
lv to speculative hauls from the
public treasury and the pockets of
the rest of the community. Within
a few days past our contemporary
has had several articles deprecating
with all the force at its command
the advice given by one of the same
gentlemen to the wage-earners of
the Kingdom, asking tlicin to stand
for their legal right to be paid sums
due tlicni above ten dollnrs in gold.
To-day it takes the bankers and mer
chants whom it has been abusing all
along, under its benignant care,
and solemnly warns them against the
dreadf id consequences to themselves
which would result from tho work
ingmon of the country insisting up
on the law being impartially ob
served toward their class.
The Advertiser may as well re
serve its anxious consideration and
sympathy for those who will appre
ciate them better than the business
men of this Kingdom arc likely lo
do. That paper lias never scrupled
to denounce that class in unmeasured
terms whenever .such was deemed
necessary for political effect by
those controlling it. It has always
been alert in coining to the work
of pitting class against class, which
has been such a deplorable feature
of tho present regime. The Act
Adopting n gold slnmlrtrd was Iho re
sult of dclibrrntc consultation among
the financiers and business men of
the Kingdom, the rest of the public
generally nwnling to the soundness
of (lie arguments in lis favor. Its
objects w ere lo obviate scriou dilll
cultics hampering the trade uf the
country and to terminate abuses that
were facilitated under the former
loose system. The Ministers, whom
their over-zealous supporters would
now almost represent as repentant of
their part in the matter, gave active
assistance in carrying Ihc measure
through tlio Legislature. Under
these ciicunistances, apologies for
the Government having made de
fault In executing the gold law
might not be incomprehensible, but
bitter opposition to the measure
undertaken on behalf of the Govern
ment can only be explained upon
grounds discreditable cither lo the.
fidelity of the administration or (o
the discretion of its champion.
Those for whom the Advertiser
affects so much solicitude would
only bo too glad to find gold for any
lawful demand upon them for Mich,
provided thereby the present tin
settled and unsettling condition of
tilings could be brought to an end.
Some of them sent large amounts of
gold coin into the planting districts
with that object in view, but their
operations in that Aay were neutral
ized in effect by Hoods of silver sent
out by parties interested in making
the law void. Those parties arc en
abled to carry out that policy simply
on account of the Government re
fusing to redeem the certificates
according to law, and by the supinc
ncss and want of cohesion of the
business community, shown in its
failure to stand by the deliberately
chosen gold standard and solemnly
enacted Currency Act.
The Anglican Church Chronicle
following the Friend in deprecating
the extension of the licensed liquor
traffic, shows pretty effectually the
attitude of the religious clement
toward the question.
Chinese gamblers would not have
gold in such profusion, to deposit as
bail when caught, if Chinese mer
chants were compelled to pay their
debts in gold. 13' the business
community weakly submitting to
have the Currency Act ignored, the
very evils predicted without reason
to follow the adoption of the gold
standard arc being brought upon the
Dame Gossip usually waits till her
victims get within bight before as
sailing them, but, in the case of the
company of players now visiting us,
her tongue outstripped her vision.
It is doubtful, however, if the chaste
and meritorious performance of the
opening night, or the disclaimer of
the manager, was necessary to assure
sensible people that the defamatory
rumor preceding the company's ar
rival was unfounded.
A MONGOLIAN MILLIONNAIRE.
In a beautiful portion of Honolulu,
Hawaiian Islands, embowered in
towering palms and luxuriant ferns,
lies hidden from the vulgar view of
the pedestrian the pretentious rcsi
denee of Mr. Afonjf. From its
roomy balcony, through the inter
stices of the tiopical forest, glimpses
of the famed Nuuanit Valley may be
caught the valley of which it is
truthfully said that it is never with
out a rainbow. To the far right the
towering mountain ridges, with the
Punchbowl, an extinct volcano, in
the front, may bo seen in all their
beauty, while the hum of the busy
town floats up with no discordant
sound. Mr. Afoug, who is vouch
safed this elysium, is a full-blooded
Chinaman. With his native island
spouse and a numerous family of
little ones, he leads an ideal life.
Mr. Afong is a solid merchant, with
u stone-front store on Chinatown's
chief business street, and is credited
with the possession of a million or
two acquired in honest trade with
his numerous countrymen on Oaltu
and its neighboring islands. He
adheres to the characteristic Mon
golian accoutrements, although
mingling with the most important
and wealthy of Hawaii's merchants,
and disdaining to interfere in tho
varied changes in attire which Hono
lulu fashion dictates to his family.
Mr. Afong lias five daughters, rang
ing in age from about 17 years to 5.
The mother and the daughters main
tain a rigid adherence to the rules of
fashion, and appear in the dress of
whito ladies and girls. When occa
sion demands, the lady and her older
daughters are clad in as elegant
raiment as is the wealthiest lady on
tho Islands, and the demand, It may
bo explained, is not by any mentis
infrequently made, as the family is
received cordially into the best
nrtMr in Hnnnlnlii. Tim fnmllv bn ,

Caucasian. Tho children arc all le
ceiving tuition, and thu eldest
daughter, n modest and not unat
tractive young lady, has advanced

ho rapidly as to be considered well
educated. The Afong family is a
curiosity in its way to the unpre
pared visitor from San Francisco,
and, although there are many
wealthy Chinamen in Honolulu and
on the other islands- it remains the
sole instance of Chinese progression
in many repects. ,S. JP. Call,
THE ORIGIN OF ROLLER SKATES.
In view of the fact that roller
skating has played such havoc with
theatre patronage, it will bo inter
esting lo the stage profession lo
know that it was out of the demand
for stage effects that roller skating
was invented. Mr. Kobbe writes
to the French press to say :
"I am told by Ilcrr Hock, the
stage manager of the Metropolitan
Opera House, that all who enjoy
roller skating arc indebted for their
sport to the famous composer,
Meyerbeer. When his opera 'The
Prophet' was produced in Paris it
was almost decided at one time to
cut out tho skating scene in the
third act, as the manager saw no
way of converting the stage into a
sheet of ice. In this crisis an in
genious stage hand came forward
and suggested that ordinary skates
might be placed on whcols. The
Grand Opera House at Paris, there
fore, was the first roller skating rink
the world has known.
