HORNER'S BANKING BILL.
Alt. .1. M. Uornei was, long boforo
ho became an "assistant lavwnakei"
as ho calls himself in his pamphlet,
"Sonic Suggestions on t lie Hawaiian
Banking Act," a persistent advocate
of paper or "rag money. Homer s
Hanking Rill is little moio or less
than a measure to provide a papei
ettticncy for this kingdom. Whether
that cuirenc would be redeemable
or irredeemable does not depend one
iota on Mr. lloincr's theory or the
Oal of the Legislature. 11 depends
on the laws of finance, with which
plain, evciy-day people can only be
made acquainted by common-sense
discussion. Thus, in the United
States, the last few months have
witnessed a decided setback to the
free silver agitation in the United
States, which setback is attiibuted
no doubt concctl to the very gen
eral discussion of the question.
Fallacy cannot endure against plain
facts with intelligent people.
There are some points in Mr. llor
nor,' bill and treatise thereon which
seem inconsistent with each other
and at vaiiancc with sound policy,
on a merely casual leading of the
provisions and the authors conimen
taiy. The bill broadly speaking
contemplates an extension of the
Postal Savings Rank's functions to
those of a general commeieial bank
of issue. This new bank, to be
called the Rank of Hawaii, has no
capital and no properly on which to
base its issue. It is to issue notes
based on the properly of those to
whom it loiu- the said not' s. Those,
the boi row cis, are bolh the Govern
ment and private pcisons.
One of the most glaring inconsist
encies of the commentary with the
measure itself will lie seen in the
following quotations. The treatise
says: "The objection uiged that 'if
the Government had a bank of then
own f i om which to diaw money, they
would abuse that right and soon run
eveiv thing into the giound.' Such
objectois have never examined into
the mciils of this bill oi 1 1103 would
have seen that the Government could
only bonow of this bank bypeiniit
of the Legislature; the amount to be
bonowed nnist be specified, and the
security also provided by the Legis
lature." That is what the author
sas of the bill, but the bill itself on
thai scoie uiengerly says, section 2G,
"The Government is hereby empow
ered to borrow money fiom the Rank
of Hawaii by depositing as above
the necessary amount of lis own law
ful bonds as security." "As above"
only indicates a pieceding gcneial
provision preseiibing Government
bonds as among the securities to be
accepted by the bank for loans. The
bank, it must be lcmembcicd, has no
money but its own notes until the
public deposits hard coin to compose
a more truslwoithy medium. There
fore, the query arises as to what
sense there is in the Government ex
changing one of its promises to pay
(its bond) for another of its pro
mises to pay (its notes).
Mr. llorner sets great sloie by the
history of the American greenback,
which wii3 employed as a means for
raising funds to piosecute the war
against the seceded States. The
greenback set foilh in effeet that one
3 ear after the close of hostilities the
bearer would be paid the amount
liieicin specified at the national treas
ury. As the foi tunes of the Union
lose or fell so the put chasing power
of tho gicenback inei eased or de
cieased. Theic was nothing behind
il but the credit of the national Gov
ernment, and when that credit suffer
ed from reverses in the field the
Government's promise to pay was
coircspondingly discounted. After
the war, when the national industries
had revived, and solid money ac
cumulated in the treasury, payment
of the Government's notes in specie
was resumed, when they immediately
jumped to n parity with gold. So il
is only the substantial value behind
il which gives paper currency of any
kind a purchasing power and a value
as a medium of exchange. This
leads to an examination of what is to
bo at tho back of Mr. nornei'shhin
plnslers, which would extend the
present 111 tide to undue length and
lb theicfore deferred. Refore leaving
the subject of this paiagiaph, how
ever, il is pciliueut lo ask Mr. Horner
what has become of the Gieenbaek
I'aity in tho United States? If it is
extinct as an independent entity, how
has it become so? Suicly, if its
principles weio bound, so pcoiluss a
nation in intelligence as the United
Stales would have afforded it iiiuturo
into a powerful factor in national

I road with interest in vour paper
of last evening the hiicf account of
the annexation of Johnston (orCorn
wallis) Island to the Ciown of Gieat
lbitain, on Hie IDth inst., and also
tho Proclamation 'of Capt. Unoke, K.
N., carrying tins in.i'Mition into
effect. These circumstances call lo
mind anolhcr Proclamation which 1
recently found in the "Polynesian"
of .Inly 31, 1858, which I send jou
without comment, and simply as an
item of local interest. It reads as
Wheicas on the I I lb day
18,)8, Cornwallis Island in

3!l West from Gieenwich, and on
the P.llh day of the same month of
Juno, 1858, Kalama Island in Lati
tude 1G IP North, and Longitude
1G!)3 21' West, were taken posses
sion of, with tho usual foimalities,
by Samuel C. Allen, Inquire, he be
ing duly authoricd to do so, in the
name of Kamehaiiioha IV., King of
the Hawaiian Islands: Therefore,
this is to give notice that tho said
Islands so taken possession of are
henceforth to be considered and res
pected as pail of the Domain of the
lung of the Hawaiian Islands.
Pubhshod pursuant lo an older by
the King in Pi ivy Council, on
the 27th day of July, 1S."8.
The island referred lo was oiigin
ally called Cornwallis Island, al
though more lecently it has been
known as Johnston Island. In the
chait of the Noith Pacific Ocean,
edition of 1888, published by the U.
S. Hydrographio Olllec at Washing
ton, it is called "Johnston or Corn
wallis" Island. In "The Ameiican
Practical Navigator," by Nathaniel
Row-ditch, page 5b2 of tho edition
of 1S88, published at the U. S. Gov
ernment Punting Ulllcc, at Wash
ington, it is also called "Johnston or
Cornwallis" Island. According to
this woik tho island is situated in
North Latitude 1G IP 18" and
West Longitude Hi!)0 31 .VS". A
Hag-staff is also said to have been
elected on the island. Lieutenant
Riooke, U. S. N., is named in
"Row ditch" as the authority for
these last named facts.

is that a largo bust of the late King
be placed in that niche. It would be
a prominent and propel position foi
