THE INTENT OF THE PAPER
Tho Finance Committee of the
Legislature, to whom was referred
the bill "to prevent the issue of
commercial paper as a circulating
medium," lias reported to the House
its opinion of that measure, recom
mending the adoption of the bill with
certain amendments pioposcd by
it. After layiug down the pro
position that "the subject of cur
rency is a very important one and
should have the close attention of
the Government," a proposition
which nobody is disposed to dispute,
the committee presents the bill
amended to read as follows: "Any
person, corporation, or company of
persons who shall issue any note,
bill (other than foi eign bills of ex
change), order, check, or certificate
of deposit, in any sum of money
with intent that the same shall be
circulated as currency, shall be
guilty of misdemeanor, and shall
for every offence be punished by a
fine of fifty dollars."
The committee stops at a very im
portant point; just like the average
preacher, who, after leading you
with polished and elegant sentences
up through a discussion on some
profound subject, passes over the
point on which tlio whole argument
turns with some such sentence as
this: "I am aware that sceptics and
worldly-minded men, indeed, say so
and so; but, my beloved brethren,
Holy Sciipturc is so vei- plain on
this point, that it is unnecessary for
me to detain you by," etc. The
committee makes no attempt to de
fine tho meaning of "with the intent
that tho same shall be circulated as
currency," probably, like the par
son, thinking it quito unnecessary,
the bill being so plain, etc. Now,
it seems to the ordinary mind that
"intent" is a very important point
for the purposes of this projected
Act. "Will not the Court hold, in
the absence of definition, that tlio
fact of an order, check, etc., being
circulated as currency is cidence
that such was the intent of tho
issuer? If not, cannot a poison
accused of issuing paper which is
circulated as currency escape the
ponalty sought to bo imposed, by
swearing that it was not his intent
that it should have so circulated?
- Whatever may have been the in
tent ot.ttie introducer of the original
bill, or whatever may bo tlio intent
of the committee ju the amended
measure, if that mcatvxre becomes
law it is calculated to cause incon
venience and work mischief. Th
custom of plantation managcts has
long been, and still is, to issue
orders on their agents in Honolulu,
with the knowledge that these orders
will be circulated as currency, if not
definitely with that intent. Others
in the country districts do the same.
To bo able to do so is very conven
ient. It is a fact that these oi ders
of ton circulate ns cunenoy, and pass
through many hands bofoio they
reach the portions on whom they aro
drawn. For instauco, a mechanic
docs work for a plantation ; he is
paid by order on an agent iu Hono
lulu; tho vnoohanlc buys n hoi so and
gives the same order iu payment;
the seller of the horse passes it on
to a store keeper in exchango for
goods, etc. Is anybody injured by
this order eirculating as cuirenoy?
Is it not a convenience to be ablo to
use it in that way?
And yet the Finance Committee
recommends a measure which len
ders tho issuance of all such orders
illegal. That is, illegal if the fact
of circulation is to be taken ns proof
of intent to that effect on tho part
of the issuer. And if not, then,
for anything to the contrary in the
bill, any person, firm, or corporation
can issue 1. O. U.'s which may, it
tho public do not object to so using
them, circulate as currency without
limit. The issuer has simply to
say ; "This is not money, but merely
au acknowledgment that 1 owe you
the amount on its face, which 1 will
pay you on the presentation of this
piece of paper. If you like to pass
it aiound as eurrencj', and people
aie willing to receive it as such, that
is none of my business, and that is
not my intent?"
Let us ask. Is it the "intent" of
the Finance Committee to abolish
plantation otdcrs, promisory notes,
etc.? If to, why so? Has the
usage been a curse to the country?
or is there any prospect of its be
coming a ciuse? Do those con
cerned the only persons who have
aii"htto object desiic abolition?
"Why not do away with foreign bills
of exchange as well as inter-island
bills of exchange? If it is not the"in
tent" of the committee to abolish
this class of commercial paper, it
had better take back that bill and
reconsider it, otherwise the effect
will assuredly be greater than the
AVe have a suspicion that the real
"intent" of the bill, the introducer,
and the committee is aimed at the
banking house of Sprockets & Co.,
and the intent is to stop the circula
tion of that firm's bank notes. It
we are mistaken, we shall be glad
to be corrected. Until proof to the
contrary is produced, however, we
shall remain under the influence of
this suspicion, and under it we ask,
what is the matter with Sprockets &
Co.'s paper? Does anybody lose by
it? Is anybody likely to lose by it?
lteincmbcr, gentlemen, there is no
law which compels you or anybody
eUe to take it, if you and they do
not want it. You are at perfect
liberty to refuse it any day in the
week, if you would rather not have
it. 11 ut most people prefer the paper
to tho coin, because it is more con
venient than the com, and they have
confidence that the coin is behind
the paper on demand. If your own
clique weic issuing the same class of
paper, would you recommend the
passage of that bill? Yes, just in
as big a hurry as Hawaiian Minis
ters tcbign their portfolios!
AVc should probably feel a little
respect for the proceedings in the
premises it tlic gentlemen would
come out manfully, and designate
the measure "An Act to prevent
Sprockets & Co. issuing bank notes,"
and go straight to the spot intended
to be touched, instead of scatteiing
around and injuring gcneial interests
for the bake of getting iu a dig at
one man. Why don't our legisla
tors drop the old nairow prejudices
of the family compact, and legislate
in a broad and liberal spirit for the
good of the country? Such Little
Pcddlinaton proclivities and proceed
ings are enough to make a sick mon
ROADS IN THE LEGISLATURE.
Noble Halduin wants 15,000 ap
piopriated for constructing a road
from Lahaina to AVailuku, on Maui,
and there is no doubt that gentle
man's constituents' wants run in the
same channel. Members' actions
arc not always in accord with the
wishes of electors. Hut this is an
instance in which it in safe to say
thut there is perfect harmony.
Moreover, tho honoiable Noblo and
his constituents have a good case.
The highway between Lahaina and
"Wailulvii is certainly a hard load to
travel, and the people who iibe it
cul pay their taxes reguhuly to
Government have cause to bo dis
satisfied, as long n8 money is voted
for poi houses, clcaric light for pri
Mile uses, etc., and Hint, dieadful
road is left untouched.
Mr. llalwin seems to have slightly
modilled his views touching tho pio-
posed Punchbowl Hill road sinco
last week. A trip to tlio top of that
eminence has had the effect of mel
lowing his heait. Hut ho wnnts tho
Maui road flist, anyhow. Ho may
be sure of Hub one thintr, that If tho
two appropriations linally pass, and
it is ultlmataly found tlmt tho
amount iu the treasury is insulUcient
for both undertaking?, his road will
stand a slim chance.
The two Nobles fiom Ililo, Mr.
Hitchcock and Mr. Townsend, aro
not so easily mollified. They do
not like so much money being ex
pended on Honolulu and Oaliu,
while the other islands get so little.
This is a legitimate and reasonable
dislike. One of theso unruly mem
bers had the audacity to intimate
that there was log-rolling going on
in the House. Now, that is a very
unkind thing to say about a "Ke
form" Legislature. But it is quite
true all the same log-rolling and
mutual back-sciatching all the time.
That "net" scheme of the Minis
ter of tho Interior a road to tlio
top of Punchbowl is perfectly
sound, provided the money is not
taken fiom necessary pui poses.
Besides, it is in its nature a purely
Government work, which piivatc en
terprise would never think of touch
ing. Herein it is totally unlike the
poi factory and electric lighting.
Both these are enterprises of a to
tally different nature, and private
parlies are ready and willing to take
WliY, I SH0ULDLIKET0 KNOW.
Eimoit HuLi.i.iix: In looking
over yesterday morning's "Ad
vertiser," I notice among the edi
toiial "Till Bits" an item which
docs not at least appear to be just
oi fair to the class of people called
Why, 1 should like to know arc
the folks, (who not only ciooio to
keep Satin day as their Sabbath,
but also have the supreme satisfac
tion of knowing that they have the
Bible to back them) to be classed
as foolish, etc.
If, on the other hand, as the
same writer observes, "the govern
ment has no right to legislate in the
interests of any sect whatever,"
then I would ask, why try to force
(by law) all classes to observe Sun
day as a day of rest?
Why not tcpealall laws relating
to either Sunday or the Sabbath,
and let everyone have pei feet free
dom of thought or deed in all mat
ters of ieligion, and give our preach
ers, Pilosis, and Ministers a chance
to put foi th and leach their differ
ent ideas of woi ship and make all
the conveits they can, and leave
the observance of any particular
day (or none at all) a matter purely
In conclusion I would say that
possibly if there was moie blraighl
Bible taught and less beer and
cards in home schools on the con
tinent of Europe, they might (even
if the' did not teach that the ".SVu
cnti" day is the "Sabbuth" of the
Lord thy God) at least convey the
idea that every man has a perfect
right to believe and think whatever
he chooses, and to act in accordance
with his views, and no law should
be made to foicc him to believe and
act in accordance with other men's
views, simply because they happen
to lie in the majoiily to-day.
