SATURDAY, KH11. 0, 1S8G.
Among other iniquitous schemes
that may bo expected from the
"victorious" party in next Legisla
ture will be an attempt, at least, to
repeal the gold law. This is the
currency policy foreshadowed in
this morning's Advertiser. The
leading article is replete with the
flsttul fallacies with which the readers
of that paper are already familiar.
The article is headed "Our Cur
rency," but consists of an introduc
tion in which tlic " debts of the
country" are willfully, for purposes
of misrepresentation, confounded
with the debts of individual persons
and linns. We were as well aware
as need be that Hawaii " is to-day,"
commercially, " a creditor and not
a debtor," but we have never had
the wool over our eyes, so thick, as
our contemporary lias, not to see
and know that the debts of our
business men abroad are not paid,
as the Advertiser recklessly alleges,
"by our produce expoits. What we
do know and what every merchant
and mechanic in this kingdom knows
to his cost, is that the currency of
the kingdom is not really a legal
tender for the thousand and one
imported ai tides of every day con
miuiption that may properly be de
signated the necessaries of life.
Goods arc imported into the king
dom by dry goods men, grocery
men, machinists, carriage makers,
harness makers, printcis and other
mechanics; and these goods are
hold in the currency of the king
dom, but exchanges in payment of
foreign invoices arc purchased at
heavy rates of discount. Our con
temporary, in citing Canada as an
illustration of its views, knocks
away most etfcctually the very
ground it tries to stand on. Canada
certainly lias little or no gold in
circulation. So far Canada and
Hawaii are alike. Another simi
larity is that the legal standard of
currency value is identical with
that of Hawaii the United States
gold dollar. The money in cir
culation consists of treasury and
bank notes of tlic denominations of
SI, S2, S'l, 85, 810, Si'O, S.JO and
$100, with Canadian silver coins,
for purposes of change, of oO cents,
2ii cents, 10 cents and !i cents, and
bronze coins of 1 cent. Silver and
paper are legal tender, according
to denomination, for amounts vary
ing by a giaduatcd scale. And
here is where the illustration intro
duced by tlic Advertiser shows the
fallacy of our contemporary's argu
ments, and destroys its case entirely.
Canadian "rag money" is con
vertible, to any required extent, and
at any bank, into United States ex
change, dollar for dollar, and into
English sterling exchange at tlic
usual rate of 81.87 per pound, at a
very small expense. Can this be
said of tlic Hawaiian currency?
"While the Hawaiian silver dollar is
identical in value with the American
silver dollar, why is it, reasoning
from the Ad cert iter's point of view,
Hint one hundred Hawaiian dollars
cannot lie passed at any bank in
Honolulu to meet one hundred
United States dollars on the face of
a San Francisco or iiostou invoice
of goods, as they certainly would
do, less a trilling brokerage, if our
currency were on a sound commer
cial basis? It is well enough for
our contemporary to say, "Our own
business men and politicians would
do well to profit by tho example of
Canada," but he fails to show how
they can do so, with a surplus circu
lation of 8000,000 silver coin over
and above what tho requirements of
tho population would bo, provided
the Canadian system of currency
would be adopted. Withdraw 5000,-

No iiuther legislation on cither
monometallism or bimetallism will be
needed. The credit of the King
dom will lie nt least "12 percent"
better abroad. At home, danger of
the repetition of a collision between
the justiciary and llnance depart
ments of government will bo obviated.
Judges of the courts and olllcers of
state will not bo obliged to force the
Government to accept the degrada
tion of being compelled to pay
salaries in legal tender.
Onr Chinese residents do not seem
to know when they have had enough

ordered to cease their cracker and
