Californians must have poor faith
in their courts of justice, when thoy
resort to barbarities of mob law to
vindicate justice. Tho hanging by
a mob of two men held for murder
at Redding is a disgrace to civiliz
ation. It would bo appropriate for
tho poniry-a-linors of tho San Fran
cisco press to refer their chestnut
about opera botiu"e, so unfailingly
used in discussing Hawaiian affairs,
to their own institutions.
Somebody referred to the Kahultii
Railway tokens as money created 1)3
liat. Thoy are only money so long
as their owners will take them for
faro or redeem them in lawful cur
rency. Just so would it bo with
paper 11101103'. Whenever tho Gov
ernment failed to exchange gold or
silver coin for the notes on demand,
their purchasing power would col
lapse and their holder bo swindled.

THE RAG MONEY BILIi.
If there was anything in tho rag
11101103', with only a backing of mud
and sand hills, a measure bringing it
into existence should still have been
drawn up by a person skilled both
in financial matters and in tho con
struction of laws. .Mr. Horner is not
skillod in oithor. His compositions,
before boing edited in a newspaper
ollice, would not pass examination
in a third primary grade of aii3'
graded school in Honolulu. Mr.
Horner is only a tiller of tho soil, a
most honorable, perhaps tho most
honorable occupation. Ho is up to
and 111113' ' "Ijovo tho average in
general information, but ho cannot
construct plain English correctly,
much less fraino a statuto of any do
greo of intricacy. His bill is full of
absurdities apart from tho principle
of it, absurdities which have boon
pointed out in this paper and else
where, but without drawing any de
fense from Mr. Horner, who kept on
tho oven tonor of his way, grinding
out stale platitudes, without aii3'
reason 111 them, on tho false doctrine
that 11101103' can bo created as easily
us circus showbills. His measure is
simply unworkable oven if it was
based on sound principles. It can
not bo patched into any sort of sym
motr3', notwithstanding Mr. Asli
ford's opinion that it can bo straight
ened out and polished. Like Paddy's
inuskot, it needs a now lock, stock
$ Mr. Horner has earned a reputa
tion for honest 3 If ho preserve it
after his remarks of yostordny, it can
only be at the expense of his reputa
tion for intelligence. When he
speaks of paper money having been
a success in America from 1801 to
1872, ho either deliberately tried to
mislead his less sophisticated "breth
ren," as he loves to call his Hawai
ian colleagues, or he proclaimed
himself an imbecile in the capacity
to estimate the examples of history.
The paper lfioney of the United
States called a success by Mr.
Horner was an expedient of war,
just as the drafting of men f 10111
peaceful occupations to serve on the
tented field wits. It was a success
but at a price that men do not want
to pa3 in peaceful times. A success
for the Government was it, but a
fearful tax on tho people. The peo
ple wore never fully released from
that tax, either, until several years
after the war, when the Government
was empowered and ready to redeem
tho greenbacks. It was a success
for speculators with capital to mani
pulate greenbacks, who made for
tunes by watching tho fluctuations
of the stuir. Those who were in tho
power of the speculators could not
have regarded it as a success.
Mr. Ashford affected to believe
that tlio proposed paper mono'
would bo as good as gold because it
was secured by double its face value
of real estate. Suppose that tho
real estate will not realize half its
pledged value if tho necessity come
to foreclose on it, as the bill antici
pates such a necessity arising as a
matter of course by the provisions
made to meet it. Or suppose tho
real estate will not go at an price.
What value then would tho rags
possess? Tho trouble on this point
would be that real estate of tho most
undoubted permanency of valuo
would not bo pledged for paper
money, because nioro than half its
valuo in gold could bo got at any
time for it; while the Government
would bo loaded up with real estate
composed of desert and rocks and
swamps which would not bo worth
The measuro now pending is
fraught with the most disastrous
consequences, to tho poor first and
then to the capitalists who keep the
wheels of industry and commerce
moving. It should bo opposed to
tho last ditch 113- tho whole business
community acting in concert. A
mass meeting to pass a resolution,
pledging all who participate in it to
have nothing to do with tho shin
plasters if the bill pass, may be tho
best means of averting the catas
trophe. "What can bo done should
bo done quickly, as tho situation in
tho Legislature is very critical. It
is an outrage in an' case to spring
such a measuro on tho country,
when it has never been seriously
advocated by anybody except its
hobby-riding and infatuated origi
nator. "Fiat Monoy."
No greater mistake can bo mado
than to hold that there is such a
thing, or that there can bo such a
thing as "liat money."
When the treasurer of tho Govern
ment passes through the window of
his ollice a ten-dollar bill ho simply
borrows for the Government ton
dollars of t ho person who receives
tho bill. That is all thoro is of it.
Nothing olso can bo mado of it. It
makes no diU'oreneo as to this essen
tial characteristic whether thoro is
Ion dollars in coin in tho Treasury
to meet tho obligation or not. Tho
piece of paper is simply a promise
to pay and no more.
When A, who received tho bill,
passes it over to B, ho simply trans
fers the loan. If the bill has been
mado legal tender then it is simply
a forced loan on the part of tho
Government. No other explanation
can bo given of tho transaction; no
other principles can bo applied.

of paper currency would realize that

Thrown From a Horse,
A Chinaman was thrown from a
horso on Queen street a little before
noon to-day. Tho Chinaman was
riding along quietly when tho horso
ho was riding suddonly shied at
something or other and turned
around. John was unseated and fell
on tho ground. Ho struck tho
ground on his head and lay thoro
unconscious. Willing hands picked
him up and ho was convoyed stiu
into the ollice of Hon. J. I. Dowsott.
After being administered a little
water ho camo to and was taken
homo. At last accounts ho was
doing well, his injurios not bo
ing serious as thought at lirst. Be
fore going out on the horso ho was
advised to inako his will. Ho laugh
ed at this and said it was made al
ready. John, who lives on J'uiuili
bowl street, is confined to his bed.

Everybody Thoroughly Satisflod with
Tho Steen-Smith entertainment of
last night deserved a larger nudioneo;
there was nevertheless a fairly filled
house, ami those who were thoro
enjoyed a really clever and instruc
tive hour and a half, for it is not
often that an entertainment of the
same character is given in Honolulu.
Mr. St con at tho star! informed
his audience that he did not protend
to any supernatural aid, yet he would
undertake to duplicate any perform
ance which has over been given by
spiritualists, using only sleight of
hand and deceptions which tire sim
ple in themselves "when you know
how thoy aro done." By those means
ho was prepared to prove tho so-
called spiritualists and professors of
the occult science to bo frauds and
impostors. With this bold stato
nieiit, Mr. Steen proceeded to collect
a committee of six gontlonion, whose
duty it was to watch him and Mrs.
Steen and to bailie them in every
way possible. Hon. J. Marsden led
off to tho great satisfaction of the
audience, and was quickly followed
by five others whom he named from
among tho audience Hon. W. J.
Smith, Mr. Whiting, Messrs. Sproull,
Eassio and F. Spencer. Mr. Steen
now hit rodueed Mrs. Steen, who was
blindfolded and placed in a chair
facing tho audience. Each of tho
committee was then handed a piece
of paper on which ho was requested
to write tho year, month and day of
his birth, enclosing it in an envelope.
These woro then collected and re
tained by one of U10 committee with
in sight of tho audience, not boing
handled b' Mr. Steen in au3' way.
Ono of them was selected from tho
pack and placed on the top of Mrs.
St eon's head. She instantly said it
was of tho gentleman who was
second from tho foot-lights, Mr.
Marsdon, and then proceeded to
givo tho 3'oar, month and day, all of
which woro correct, as Mr. Marsden
admitted. When sho wont further
to givo tho hour and minute tho
audience were enthusiastic, but Mr.
Marsden could not be sure. Soveral
others woro in a like manner correct
Two blackboards were now pro
duced, 0:10 being covered with
names, the olhor with figures, by
two of tho committee. Tho boards
were placed behind tho lady. Mis.
Steon now added up tho figures and
road the names, naming also every
figure and name which was touched.
Mr. Steon then exposed two favorite
spiritualists' tricks and this brought
tho performance as far as the Sleons
woro concerned to a close.
Tho audience throughout paid
great attontiou, and the performance
may bo considered as lirst-rato.
What method Mr. and Mrs. Steen
possess of collusion, whereby he
telegraphs information to her, re
mains a profound mystery. It is
sulliciently wonderful to make his
statement that ho can duplicate any
occult performance feasible.
Tho ontortainmentconcluded with
a very amusing and clover ventrilo
quist, Mr. Oscar Smith, who with his
dummies and distant voices brought
down the house.
The next appearance of the com
bination will bo on Saturday night.
It was announced that the matinee
would bo post poiied till Monday,
