One of the great wants of com
merce in this city is a reliable
broker's shop. Foreigners stopping
off in Honolulu are subject to con
siderable embarrassment and some
times to heavy exactions owiug to
the impossibility of exchanging for
eign coin for its equivalent in Ha
waiian specie. A city of extensive
commerce and lying as il does in
the highway between the American
and Asiatic continents, it would be
expected that facilities would be
provided for the accommodation of
foreign tourists having money to
spend in the place, so that they
could do so without yielding to ex
orbitant discounts. A considerable
amount of local buying aud selling
is anticipated from the new arrange
ments of the Paciliic steamship com
panies shortly to come into opera
tion. An olllcer of one of the Aus
tralian steamers staled to a repre
sentative of this paper that no pas
sengers in transit would spend any
moncy in Honolulu that they could
possibly avoid, while their English
shillings and sovereigns arc refused
or taken at an enormous discount
silver about 20 percent of the real
value. It .certainly docs seem ab
surd that a coin representing be
tween 2d and 25 cents, gold, should
not be taken -on a par with a coin
worth 21 cents. Next to the oldtimc
Mexican dollar, the English shil
ling is the best silver coinage in the
world, having an intrinsic value that
is not necessary to increase into a
nominal value 20 percent greater,
by the arbitrary fiat of statute law ;
and yet these coins, twenty of which
arc equivalent, by par of exchange,
to S-1.8-J -1-0 United States gold,
cannot be available by travelers In
this city, for more than 20 cents.
IJefore we can expect to reap any
great harvest from the stay of Aus
tralian steamers at this port, some
enterprising money owner must
open a good broker shop where
English, as well as other coins, can
be converted, at reasonable rates,
into Hawaiian currency.
AMERICAN GRATITUDE FOR IMPERIAL
SULTAN AND I.KCTUKKIt.
Major Henry C. Dane, a learned
and well-known America citizen,
whose interesting lecturers are highly
appreciated in the United States, last
year visited Greece and the East on

of his Imperial Majesty tho Sultan,
being peunitted to visit the Imperial
.Treasury, the old Seraglio kiosks,
tho palaces and monuments of this
capital, accompanied by a special
aide-de-camp of his Imperial Ma
jesty. In return for this kindness,
he has lately sent tho poetical works
of the national poet Henry W. Long
fellow, with the autograph of the
author, to be piescntcd to his Im
perial Majesty tho Sultan, as a
token of his sincere thanks for the
attention lie received. The books

monies at tho Imperial Palace of
Yildiz, by Mr. D. N. Demctriades,
the first interpreter of the consulate
general of the United States, accom
panied with n letter fiom the Honor
able G. II. Heap, the consul-general
of the United States. Munir Pasha
received tho books ami presented
them to II. I. 31. the Sultan who
accepted them and expressed his
satisfaction which he wishes to prove
to the thoughtful donor in any way
that may bo suggested. Major
Henry C. Dane is now at San Fian
cisco, California, lecturing on his
impressions and recollections of the
East. Eastern Express, Vomtan
