MONDAY. KKB. B, I88B1
aTroposal TO BURY THE HATCHET.
Kditok Hn.i.iriN: Now Unit (he
election contest is over tuul the re
sult known, 1, who in common with
others hnvu looked on from the out
side, desire 11 little space to say 11
word or two rcnardiiux what I be
lieve would hu the Also and com-luon-sense
course now to adopt. The
Government parly has won the day:
the Opposition is 111 a minority. The.
successful side is naturally jubilant
imd the other as naturally disap
pointed. The Government made n
viuouius light to maintain its posi
tion and power, and the Opposition
entered into the struggle in the inter
cuts of reform and retrenchment.
The former is sustained by the popu
lar vote and the latter rejected.
During the campaign the air re
sounded with extravagant and ex
airnerated statements from the press,
the platform, and the stump. Any
one credulous enough to believe
one-half of what was uttered by
either party could not have escaped
the impression that the other was
the concentration of badness. The
success of either party was said by
' the other to he synonymous with the
irredeemable ruin of the country.
Now the struggle is over it is to be
hoped the victorious party will be
satisfied with its victory, and cease
its unworthy abuse of iU opponent,
and that the vanquished party will
take its defea with magnanimity
and make the best of failure. I
cannot believe Hint the Government
supporters and sympathisers arc so
corrupt, so unprincipled and un
scrupulous, iisrcpiesented. Neither
can I believe that Oppositionists are
nil nliieo-hunters. bullish and un
patriotic, striving to "rule or ruin."
If there were not some in each party
whose motives and aims are question
able, it would be remarkable in
deed ; but to place all, or cveiij.a
majority, in the same category, is a
rellection on the national character
too monstrous for an unbiased mind
to accept. Uelioving, then, that the
good of the country and its people
is the desire and aim of the two par
ties, although they may differ in
opinion as to how this objeet should
be effected, all bitterness of feeling
and hardness of language should
now cease, and the vanquished lend
all assistance in their power, con
sistent with principle, for the accom
plishment of the common purpose.
KNOWLEDGE THAT IS PAID FOR.
Kditok llui.urix: You arc, no
doubt, the best exponent of what
you mean by "a currency that will
not pay our debts abroad;" but
there arc many others in this com
munity who have a full experimental
realization of the expression in the
sense that any ordinary reader would
take it. I, for one, have paid for
the knowledge that we have not a
currency that will pay my debts
abroad, and that if we had had a
currency that would have paid my
debts abroad I should have been in
a less impecunious condition to-day
than, I now am. Probably many
others possess the same knowledge,
and have purchased it at the same
price and in the same way. Con
cerning the theories of finance and
financiers I know but little and care
still less ; but of the actual opera
tion of civimr coin in exchange for
other commodities, including the
necessaries of life, I have been
compelled to learn something, and
this small something embraces the
fact that my purchases abroad can
not be paid for in the currency of
this realm. The Advertiser's ideas
may look pretty ; learned political
economists may pronounce them
sound; the editor may be earnest
and conscientious in advocating
them ; but all this does not alter the
fact just now stated. A man may
aiguo most energetically and con
clusively that black is white, but
unless he can produce a transforma
tion in my eye, to me black is still
black. To say that our exports
exceed our imports, and therefore
the cost of exchange for abroad
must be trilling, does not lessen its
cost to me. 1 wish it did. Perhaps
it is reasonable to suppose that it
should be so ; it looks as if it ought
to be so ; but as a matter of fact it
is not so. I have nothing to do with
what should be, or what ouyU Co be,
hut what is. When the incarcerated
sailor was assured that he could not
he locked up, Jack said, "I am
locked up." Ho was conscious of
the fact, and no amount of talk
could convert it into a falsehood.
So I am conscious of the fact that
I have had and have to pay my
liabilities abioad in other than the
currency of this kingdom, and, as I
receive nothing in my business but
Hawaiian currency, the cost of con
version is a serious diminution of
my small profits. 1 also know that
jf my creditors abioad would rcceivo
payment in Hawaiian currency, I
could send forward the coin for very
jnuch less than I am now compelled
to pay for exchange. To tell me
that 1 can obtain exchange for my
silver at a low rate, by applying to
tho proper source, affords mo no
ponsolation J because I have applied
to t!i iiullentcd sourco tune Pftnr
Umu without. Bitucessi Oilier nrny
have, been IllorU fm lliwte. lilt
certainly hnvo failed. I don't cart!
ono straw nbout the currency of
Canada or any other country. I
simply want a currency for Hawaii
by which I can meet my liabilities
beieand elsewhere. Gold coin is
the currency for me. It is accept
able to creditors abroad ami not re
jected by thoe at home. This in
place of the depreciated silver
tokens would render me independent
of bankers, produce-exporters, and
the whole caboodle of soulless money

SHIPBUILDING ON THE CLYDE.
The shipbuilding liado 011 the
Clyde has been much deputed
during the past year. Two hundred
and forty-one vessels, of an aggre
gate tonnage of UKIIoS tons have
been launched, which shows a fall
ing of 0:i,'l()0 tons as compared
with last year, and it is by far the
lowest return since 1879. The best
year ever known on the Clyde was
J - . . j t i.r trn
188II, when tlie tonnage was -isu,uuu
tons. The prospects for next year
are fairly good and there arc signs
of a revival hi trade, as a large
number of orders, have been booked
in the piineipal yards, including an
unprotected cruiser for the Spanish
Government, which is to attain tho
amazing speed of twenty-two knots
THE C0NC0 RAILWAY.
The agreement between the Gov
ernment of the Independent Congo
State and II. M. Stanley and James
V. Ilutton, M. P., acting on behalf
of the Congo Hallway Syndicate,
which was concluded 011 Thursday
last, marks a very important step
towards the effective opening up of
trade with a most populous part of
the Congo basin. The list of emi
nent and practical men who have
interested themselves in the scheme
of the syndicate ought to be taken
as an assurance that serious work is
meant. Tho scheme is to unite tho
Lower with the Upper Congo by
what is described as a State railway,
to be built under the auspices of the
Congo Government, and under a
Royal Charter, the company, how
ever, being registered under Itritish
law, and to hare its scat of adminis
tration in London. The capital is
to be "from 1,000,000 to tl',000,
000 sterling, and subscriptions are
to be opened in the capitals of all
the fourteen Powers who took part
in tho Berlin Conference. It may
be presumed that in all this con
nection with the State there is im
plied a State guarantee. What this
may be worth in the long 11111 will
probably depend upon what may
prove to be the need and success of
the r.iilway itself. The enterprise
is one of undoubted boldness. It
is a most desirable one in the inter
ests of both commerce and civiliza
tion." Leeds Mercury, Dec. 2(i.

1st The Society issues all the approv
ed forms ot assuuince, including Ordt.

licics. It Is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi
dcnils and a sut render value; me indis
putable after threo years and payablo
immediately nflcr proof of death.
Ud Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy mo the same as on the Ordiuury
Lite, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in the event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of tho reserve and the nccu
undated profits in rash at the end of a
anted period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years nro past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an oidinnry policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that the return
paid, in cuhh on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
nmofht of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of the
assurance will bo only about the Interest
on the premiums.
5th Tontine policies, like others, aro
paid in full in tho event of death at any
time during the term of the policy, and
aro incontestable after threo years, and
payablo immediately after due proof of
0th Experience shows .that the mor.
tality is lower among Tontine policy
holders, as the better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
able souicc of profit.
7th Tontine policies will be made
non-forfeitablc under tho laws of tho
State, if so desired at tho timo the as.
suranco is effected.
8th Tlie Tontine system is fair nnd
just; its accounts aro accurately kept,
