SATUIJDAY.'MAKCII 5, 1892.
The Advertiser has two Ministers
of Finance published in a column
put porting to bean "Ollloial Direc
tory of the Hawaiian Government."
No wonder it speaks as with author
ity on "treasury balances"! The
directory, however, is u fraud, as
there is nothing ollloial about it.
The Portuguese colony seems to
have irrecoverably lost wght of the
motto, "In union Is strength." Iih
fnctoral wars in the courts and in the
press hnvo become tiresome. The
Huuxn.v must promise its readers
to sivt bounds to the present controv
ersy over rival Portuguese papers.
A "last ictort" from tlio other Bide
to that having the say to-day may
be allowed but no more.
The irresponsible chatter of the
. . Advertiser and Ka Leo has frequent
g. reference to the now dredge audits
.8uppo8cd delay in getting into oper
Cation. Those malcontent allies should
' 'inform themselves of the conditions
' . of tlio contract, one of which is that
i& fho 4nnt rntttrwti clitill run tlw. ili.-
Kfpr thirty days. The Government
phuB not yet taken over the machine.
Until It has Ka Leo tititl Its imitator
the Advertiser only display their
ignorance and their vulgarity by,
throwing nicknames at the Minister
of the Interior in connection with
the dredging contract.
When the Advertiser attracts the
attention of hungry eyes like its own
to balances in the treasury which it
believes should bo expended to the
last dollar, it should be speeillu and
state what those balances are while
showing how it is in the public inte
rest to have them expended. "The
money is in the treasury unil the bal
ances arc on the books," with charm
ing naivete remarks the Adveitiser.
Without waiting to investigate the
true state of affairs there are several
observations that naturally occur In
response to this remark of the Adver
tiser. Some of the balances are
doubtless, like that for dredging the
harbor entrance, going to be ex
pended in due time. Others are
bound by conditions in the Appro
priation Act which preclude their ex
penditure except in cases of unfore
seen emergency. Some, again, nre bal
ances of excessive appropriations, in
the cases of which pledges have been
given to the Legislature, that, in the
familiar phrase, "if the money is not
all needed it will not all be spent."
Not to go any further than such cases
as those just mentioned, enough is
therein found to account for balances
of a laige aggregate amount. The
country could not approve of the
cleaning out of these balances,
which would mean the starting out
in the next period with a bankrupted
It is well-known that the appro
priations made by the Legislature
were far in excess of the highest
estimate of revenue. This is one of
the evils of the old regime which,
unfortunately, has been perpetuated
under the new Constitution. It is
due to a very imperfect realization
of the principle of Ministerial re
sponsibility. No Ministry since the
constitutional change has had the
courage to make a linanoial budget
and slick to it in the face of the
Legislature. The Legislature has
taken the bit in its mouth aud, by a
system of mutual log-rolling by re
presentatives of different districts,
boomed appropriations up to an
aggregate away above high-water
mark of the revenue. In addition to
working on borrowed money, the
proceeds of several direct loans, the
past two Legislatures have author
ized tbo boi rowing of the savings of
the people from the Postal Savings
Bank. Thus a large home as well
.13 foreign debt has accrued, so that
the interest bill of the country alone
is now something formidable. This
interest as well as the principal it
must be the aim of wise financiering
to meet whenever any part of it be
The people through several parly
channels have at every election aince
June 30, 1887, demanded economy as
one of the cardinal points in the ad
ministration of affairs. The Legis
latures elected by them, however,
have adopted the economical princi
ple with their tongues while rejecting
il with their show of hands. Il is all
the more the duly of a patriotic
press, therefore, to steadfastly direct
the public eye to the polestar of econ
omy. This country cannot afford
the paternal policy ot expending
money simply to furnish work for the
unemployed. It must be just before
it is generous. The inconsiderate
scattering of treasury balances on a
socialistic theory would be an act of
menace to the nation's creditors.
Even in the case of necessary
sei vices, at this closing stage of
the liuancial period, a conservative
administration of remaining reve
nues should be endorsed by pub
lic opinion. While there may be
balances of some items, even to an
aggregate of hundreds of thousands
of dollars as the Advertiser says,
there are at Die same time balances
against the troueuiy in other items.
These latter should bo paid Justus
soon as the Legislature can vote the
amounts, but if the treasury he
cleaned out now, as foolishly advised,
the orcditors of the Government will
have to wait many months for the
settlement of their claims. If hun
dreds of thousands of dollars remain
in the treasury, mtiuli of which Is
bonowed money, all tlio circum
stances of the country at the present
time should dictate that as much of
the amount uh possible should he

SPANISH STORIES REVIVED.
Thr IMNPOvory r Unlit In tlio Choc
taw .llountnln Ilnnci.
News that gold had been found bj
a party of prospectors in the Choc
taw Mountain range north of Tuskn
homa, the Choctaw capital, was re
ceived at Paris, Texas. No ono had
an idea that prospecting had been,
going on, and the faut .Uiat-n'strlkc-hud
been made was only made kuown
by accident, the parties having made
the find being very leticent, It belne
their desire to secure all mining rights
under the Choctaw law. The fortu
nate prospectors are working under
Mr. Randall, of Denlson, Texas,
who by marriage has citizenship rights
in the nation. The exact location of
their "llnd" is known only to them,
rite miners have prospected a vein
of gold-bearing quartz until they arc
well satisfied of its value. They
were led to the final discovery by a
"find" of placer-gold in a stream.
For years there has been more or less
unprofitable prospecting In the moun
tains which cover the eastern Choc
taw country adjacent to the Atkansas
line. Since the days of the earliest
settlement there have been traditions
of gold and silver mines somewhere
in the mountains north of the Red
River, which were known to the
Spaniards two centuries ago. The
story of these mines has been re
peated from time to time since the
earliest settlements of this country.
Che pioneers learned it from Indian
traditions. It has been believed by
some and rejected by many. There
have been those who have gone quiet
ly into tho-c mountains and searched
for what they believed were once rich
mines of gold and silver.
History tells of an expedition that
set out from the north provinces of
.Mexico, and made its way after a
long journey, in which many hard
ships were endured, to Red River, at
a point as nearly as can be calculated
where the old fort was discovered.
There a colony was planted, but it
was lost, and no trace of it was ever
found. These unfortunate people
had evidently been attacked by hos
tile Indians and destroyed. Many
stories have been told of traces of
these mines that were said to have
been found by bold ndventurers.
Some years ago a party of hunters in
Ihe wild and unfrequented region
east of the Kiamitia found on the side
of the mountain some pieces of pot
tery and cpoking utensils. It had in
the long ago evidently been a min
ing camp. Around it were a number
of old gun-barrels of an ancient pal
tern, well eaten by rust. There was
also an old cannon. Around the
camp, which had once been fortified,
were evidences of a desperate and
sanguinary struggle. Human bones,
almost decayed, were found abol
Ihe place. There was also an old
smelter which was in the ruins. It
bore evidences of having once been
worked. A large amount of smelted
rocks lay scattered around. Two
years ago a young gentleman of Red
River county discovered in Red
River bottom the remains of a fort
long ago reduced to ruins. It en
closed about fifty acres, and its
boundaries were well defined by a
ditch that extended around it. One
side was along the bank of Red
River, and the other ran along a
creek, from which a ditch had been
cut into the fort, evidently for the
purpose of supplying it with water.
Inside this were a number of mounds,
some large and some small.
The young man dug into some of
these mounds, and found in all of
them human bones, pieces of broken
dishes, skillets, pots', etc. They all
showed evidences of having been dc
stroyid by fire. There were charred
wood and straw in them. The young
man who made this discovery was
well acquainted with the legends of
the mines in the nation, and believed
that this old fort had once been a
supply station for the bold and en
terprising men who went into the
country beyond Red River two cen
turies ago in search nf the precious
metals. There are well authenticat
ed facts in support of the young
man's theories. It is well known
that what is known as the old Span
ish trail that crossed the Trinity near
Dallas lead, through this country.
That trail went directly to where this
old fort was found. St. Louis
