POSTAL SAVINCS BANKS.
A Pennsylvania paper adduces
tho failure of savings banks, with
widespread loss to depositors, in that
Stale, as an argument for the insti
tution of national savings banks in
connection with the postal system.
The plan had been recommended by
nearly every Postmaster-General
since 1S70, and a bill establishing
the system was favorably reported
by Congress in 1882, but failed to
reach a final vote. Consolation for
the delay in establishing the system
in the United States is obtained
from the fact that the matter was
agitated for more than half a
century in Gicat Britain bcfoic it
was taken hold of by Parliament.
Such a parallel, however, would
never be accepted as an excuse by
business men, for the failure of
American manufacturers to take ad
vantage of an important mechanical
invention, once its utility had been
proved in another country. As to
the undoubted success of the insti
tution in Great Britain the following
statement is given in the paper above
referred to :
"Savings deposits were first re
ceived at the post ollicc of the
United Kingdom September lGth,
18(51, and on that day -loo accounts
were opened, and 135 deposits made
amounting to $i,loG.57, an average
of slightly over 10 each. In fifteen
months the deposits had swollen to
GU),'MG, aggregating 810,298,-138.-03,
and at the close of 1880 there
were 2,1S1,972 pass-books, repic
senting deposits to the credit of de
positors of 101,330,382.19. That
the arrangement is mutually benefi
cial to the Governmeut and to the
depositors tlieic is now no question
in the minds of the British people."
It is the part of true statesman
ship in any country to avail itself of
economic experience wherever that
may be found in any matter of polity
wherein a need for action arises.
The copying of legislation by one
nation from another is very com
mon, and once a problem has been
satisfactorily worked out by any
country, it will in most cases pro
bably be only a waste of energy for
other countries, under conditions
approximately similar, to begin the
solution of tho same question by
entirely original methods. This
seems to have been the view taken
by both the Congress of tho United
States and the Legislature of Ha
waii, regarding postal savings banks.
Both pronounced the tiling good.
There the American statesmen
paused. Whether they delayed giv
ing elfect to their expressed opin
ion, through indisposition to disturb
vested interests of shareholders in
existing institutions for husbanding
the savings of the people, or for
other reasons, is beyond our know
ledge.' The Hawaiian legislators,
however, carried their ideas out to
the point of consummation so far as
their power went. They passed, at
tho last session, an Act providing
for the establishment of a postal
savings bank in this kingdom. 1 lore
there was no vested right concerned,
for the one bank then in existence
had abandoned its savings branch,
in anticipation of the inauguration
of the postal system. The Act ww,
approved under the royal sign
manual nearly sixteen months ago,
but as yet nothing has been clone
by the Executive toward giving the
law effect. Therefore, this must bo
added to the category of matters in
which the Government has assumed
to please itself as to whether the
carefully deliberated legislation of
tho people's representatives should
oo carried out or ignored. Over
and over again have the Ministers
been publicly asked for an explana
tion of their courao in regard to this
law, but uot ft word Itavo they
yielded iu response. One of tlio
My Dn.vn Kuiuxus On Sunday
next, acting on the suggestion of a
large body of the members of the
Church made in a memorial pre
sented to me on October 3rd, I in
tend to hold the Cathedral services
in English, at the hours of !) :30 a.
m. and G i m.
It is hardly necessary to remind
you that the preparation of that
memorial was necessitated by the
action of the members of the Cathe
dral Building Committee, who, as
suming a function for which they
were never elected, got up a me
morial, lated August 25th, request
ing leave for the English-speaking
congregation to be formed into a
distinct society. The memorial was
presented in the name of the whole
English - speaking congregation.
Hence, it must bo evident to every
thinking person, that if the signers
of that memorial had represented the
mind of the whole English-speaking
congregation, the noble and benili
cent design of Kamchameha IV. and
Queen Emma, in welcoming and
fostering a branch of the Anglican
Church planted here in its integrity,
would be brought to naught. If
before that stage in its development
is reached, when the Cathedral
(Jmircli will be acltiiinislcrcu by a
duly constituted Chapter, you re
move it from the immediate and
personal control of the Bishop, you
destroy the Cathedral idea and re
duce it to the position of any other
Parish Church in the Diocese. I
am pursuaded that many who were
induced to sign the memorial of
August 25th did not know its real
purport when they wrote their names.
Some, I am told, signed it without
even reading it. How far it was
from representing the mind of the
whole congregation was made clear
by your memorial of October 3rd,
deprecating any change in the exist
ing order, and expressing your re
solve, should any change be made,
to stand by and support the Cathe
dral Church, that it may be tv bless
ing in the land.
The signers of the memorial of
August 25th justify their action by
refening to what they call "the
stationary, if not retrogressive con
dition of the foreign congregation,"
and "are strongly of opinion" that
those who did not sign that memo
rial "would be willingly and far
more usefully attached to a portion
of tho Church which we believe
would increase in numbers and
active usefulness than to one which
has not shown such increase."
It is thus plainly intimated that
freedom from tho incubus of the
Bishop, as Dean of the Cathedral,
will relieve the stationary and re
trogressive condition complained of.
Certainly it is a serious allegation
that the Bishop's control of the
Church, as Dean, has been the
great hindrance to its development.
But if it is true that fourteen of the
best years of my life have been
spent iu vain in giving the largest
share of my ministrations during
that time to tho English-speaking
congregation ol the Cathedral, with
out any charge upon its funds, it is
right that the truth should be
spoken. But at the same time, I
can say with the Apostle, "To me
it is a very small thing that I should
be judged of you or of mail's judg
ment. He that judgeth me is the
Whatever fault may bo found
with my administration, for which
I am responsible to tho Great Head
of the Church, one thing is per
fectly clear, that if the promoters
of tho memorial of August 25th
would have asked for a candid and
unbiassed inquiry into the causes of
the condition of things complained
of, they would have found that onu
great bar and hindrance- to develop
ment has been iu the appropriation
ol the seats of the Chinch to a few
families. Botli llawaiians and the
poorer class of foreigners have been
kept from the Church through fear
of taking a place in which a vested
interest was claimed. From hence
forth, at the Cathedral services, the
King's seat alone will bo reserved.
Saving this regard due to the King's
Majesty, there will be no respect of
persons in the House ol God.
Whether you have 810,000 a year
or only 50 cents a day, you will be
equally entitled to the first. unoccu
pied place in tlio Church.
1 have given my consent to the
signers of the memorial of August
2Dth, to become n separate, congre
gation ns soon an the existing linbili.
ties to the contractor are dischaged.
It is ananged that the Ilov. G. Wal
lace be their Pastor. Although they
cannot become a distinct congieg.i
lion until the above mentioned con
dition is fulfilled, yet I have signified
niV intention to give up the services
at 11 and 7:30 to tho Kev. G.
Wallace, and at once make the
services at 0 :30 and G the Cathedral
services in English.
Let mo state in conclusion that
my mission here is to build up the
Anglican Church upon the basis of
the Doctrine and Discipline of tho
Church of England, neither adding
thereto nor dininishing therefrom.
Tlie fourteen years, during which I
have carried out this aim among
you, ought surely to give you con
fidence that the truth which this
Church has inherited from ancient
days is the foundation on which 1
shall continue to build. It is not to
please men, but to gather them into
the body of Christ that they may
be saved, that the Church is planted.
In this work we do not look for im
mediate success. But if you have
confidence in your Bishop as the
Chief Pastor of the Diocese and
Dean of the Cathedral Church, you
will now make it plain to all men
that the Bishop is not the cause of
the stagnation complained of.
Come on Sunday next to the Cathe
dral services at 9:30 and G, and
from that day forth fill the Church
with an earnest hearty congregation,
as it lias never been filled before,
wipe away whatever causes there
may have been for reproach, and
unite heart and soul with the Bishop
and Clergy in making the Anglican
Church a praise in the Islands.
