Persons lcquiring extra copies of
any issue of the Daily Bullliik,
should send their orders to the odicc
not later than one o'clock of the
date required. Those desitous of
securing a file before the sailing of a
mail steamer, can have such pic
served for them and done up in a
strong wrapper ready for address
ing, by leaving their names al the
ollice at the earliest date wanted.
This intimation we find it necessary
to give, -fioin the frequency with
which orders arc lcceivcd for papers
after the issues are exhausted. A
file of daily papers sent to friends
abroad will give tlicin a better idea
of life in this group than man'
reams of paper consumed in letter
writing. CHINESE ACCOUNTS.
The Gazette, in its haste we pre
sume, considers the articles that
have appeared in this paper upon
Chinese accounts were written under
an "entire misconception of the
subject." It says that the Act to
compel Chinese merchants to keep
accounts in one of the established
languages of the country, only denied
the privileges of the bankruptcy law
to those who failed to keep such
accounts. Granted ; but as our
articles, communicated and editorial,
regretted the defeat of the Act in
question on account of the fraudulent
bankruptcies of Chinese merchants
due to the want of such a law, it is
diflicult to sec where the misconcep
tion comes in. But what can be
said of tho following sentences that
our contemporary's article contains
in the order given ? Thus :
"To make it a penal offense for
a Chinaman to keep Chinese books,
or to fail to keep English books,
would be a kind of legislature
legislation? which would make a
Hottentot laugh. A law which
would make it a penal offense to
giro over twelve months' credit to a
Chinese ilnn having no assets except
the goods sold to them on credit,
prohibiting foreign merchants from
selling over $f,000 worth of goods
on credit to a Chinese cook, would
have sonic sense in it, for here the
real trouble lies."
These passages ccitainly convey a
new idea in commercial juiibpru
dencc, being no less thau the princi
ple that roguery is to be abolished
ty punishing tho victims of plausible
rascals for allowing themselves to
be I'hcalcil. When the law affords
protection against business chicanery
niul duplicity to those who choose to
avail themselves of il, it goes us far
as civilized codes can and stops a
safe distance from irksome inter
ference with private liberties. Such
an object was contemplated in the
Act tinder discussion, and if it had
been passed into law crcditois of
Chinese merchants would not be
compelled to occupy tho helpless
position in which they have lately
been exposed day after day in the
Kupicmc Coml. The Chinese them
selves in sonic cases openly chuckle
over the facilities for making frau
dulent bankruptcies which their
accounts, unintelligible to other peo
Furthermore, the Gazette ridicules
the bankruptcy laws of this King
dom, llcforc it docs so, it should
say wheic a perfect model of legis
lation upon that subject can bo
found. Bankruptcy is to-day one
of the most puzzling questions that
civilized nations hare to deal with,
and there are countries that have
tried sundry elaborate measures for
many years, and yet have come back
to methods almost indcntical with
those in vojmc in this Kiimdoni.
In this issue we give a statement
of the gold coin importations since
Dec. 1st, the date the gold standard
came into effect. Including a ship
ment due by next steamer to Messrs.
Bishop & Co.. the total standard
gold coin imported lias been SG31,
G59.59, of which the firm just named
In ought nearly one-third. There
has been a very great demand for
gold, Messrs. Bishop & Co. in one
day having paid out $38,000 of il.
There is little doubt that if the
Government had tried in earnest to
have the law carried out, and
the business community stood
firm for its enforcement, the
gold standard would by thjs time
have been satisfactorily established.
Even as the maltci stands, hopes arc
entertained by competent authorities
that the measure will before long be
woi king well. If a portion of the
silver coinage was held in reserve
until, at least, lcviving business
would determine whether it was all
needed for its legitimate purposes in
brisk times, there need, we think, be
no fear of the law not being carried
out with satisfaction to all just in
terests. But the pioeess must be
slow if the Government continue to
lclcasc the silver deposits by redeem
ing certificates in that metal instead
of the legally prescribed gold.
