Tho Holomua protends to aim at
n higlior ideal than tho other non
descript political shoots of its class.
Yot it shows it has no raoro digni
fied oxomplar than Ka Leo of un
savory roputo. It evinces tho same
affectation of wit in boorish fami
liarity with respectable people's
names. Tho brace of goniusos who
concoct its contents botweou thorn
have heads big enough to contain a
little of tho originality that their
products aro scanned in vain to discover.
THE RAG MONEY BILL.
In this issuo our readers will find
a letter from Mr. H. F. Glade, re
printed from tho Advertiser, in which
some errors occurred in tho print
ing. It is a clear and torso e. isure
of some of tho fallacies of He iiier's
Banking Bill. Possibly tho article
may now bo too late for its purpose,
as at this writing tho bill is hurry
ing to a decision by the House. The
passage of tho bill through all its
stages would be a grave calamity at
this iuncturo. Indeed tho news that
it camo up in tho House and was
not instantly killed, which wont for
ward to tho outside world by yester
day's steamer, may prove disastrous
to tho negotiations of tho Oahu
Eailway & Land Company in Now
York for tho introduction hero of
hard coin to develop our latent re
sources. Tho business community
has been too quiescent in presence
of this threatened danger of placing
the Kingdom in tho wake of almost
numberless examples of overwhelm
ing disaster as tho result of follow
ing the will-o'-the-wisp of fiat money.
Mr. Hornor has not yot, in all his
voluminous writing and copious
verbal disquisition, produced ono
example where paper money,
not backed by tho power as woh
as the promise to pay in haru
coin, produced anything but
financial distress and, in most cases,
ultimate crashes of whole national
systems of finance. Should tho pre
sent measure pass into law, it will be
perfectly justifiable for the business
community to combine, as they can
easily do, to prevent its over going
into operation to hurt many people,
except tho immediate injury its an
nouncement would work to tho pub
lic and private credit of the king
dom. That injury could soon bo
remedied, however, when it becamo
known to tho world that tho people
wore wiser than their Legislature
and would have none of tho finan
cial ompiricism of tho farmer from
H. B. M. S. DAPHNE.

H. B. M. S. Daphne arrived this

It is said that every particle of a
human being is changed each seven
years. Hawaiian Lodge, F. & A. M.,
hasn't changed so completely as
that in twico seven years, as tho fol
lowing data will show that sovoral
of its prominent members to-day
were in it fourteen years ago. The
Lodge has sold its building at Fort
and Queen streets to Mr. James
Campbell, and is laying tho founda
tions of a more glorious tomplo (al
though thoro are "no llios" on tho
old ono) at Hotel and Alakea streets.
Tho comor stono of tho now edifico
will bo laid on tho 27th inst., St.
John's Diy, with tho usual Masonic
ceremonies. It will bo at tho north
east corner, oil Alakea street. Bo

and Mr. b . A. bchaofor a 5ulletin
representative was permitted to

order in which thoy were turned
The stono was laid on January 3,
1879, according to tho dato of Lodgo
Thoro is a copy of tho Constitu
tion and Regulations of tho Grand
Tho Hawaiian Annual and Al
manac for 1879. It contains a speech
by Hon. "W. M. Gibson boforo tho
Legislature of 1878 on tho Comme
moration of tho Centennial of Dis
eovory, in tho course of a debate
that resulted in 810,000 being voted
for tho bronzo statue of Kamoha-
meha I. now standing in front of tho
Government Building. An item
states that tho first bteamer over
seen in Honolulu was tho British
warship Cormorant, arriving from
Callao on May 22,1810. Tho An
nual has a revised libt of tho Birds
of the Hawaiian Islands by tho pro
bent Justice S. B. Dole of tho Su
premo Couit. In tho Retrospect of
1S7S a reference is made to the great
lire on tho Esplanado in 1S77, which
destro3cd property to tho value of
25S,7U0. Tho first crop of sugar
marketed under tho reciprocity
treaty with tho United States is
mentioned, also tho inauguration of
a Peru and China lino of steamers
calling hero in addition to tho calls
of tho P. M. S. S. Co.'s lino to tho
Pioceedings of tho M. W. Grand
Lodgo of California is another pam
phlet. Tho Pacific Commercial Adver
tiser, published by J. H. Black (at
present in Robert Griovo's printing
otlice), is represented by tho issuo of
January -1, 1879. There is in it a
London letter of December 1, 1878,
which speaks of a rumored contract
of the French Government with tho
Pacific Mail Steamship Co. for regu
lar steam communication between
San Francisco and Noumea, Now
Caledonia, adding, "It is also hoped
that a submarine cable botweou Sau
Francisco and Honolulu may still
further slibrton tho distance" that
is for getting news, in which thoro
had l)eon delays caused by tho war
with natives in Australia. Tho
paper mentions tho starting of a
telephone system thus early in Ho
nolulu, when it was only beginning
to bo used in tho larger cities of
America. Even then thoro had boon
a dolaj' in starting it owing to tho
loss ol material on a vessel. Tho
Diamond Head signal service had its
terminus in "Wildor's store, where
the public could uso tho telephone,
and it was to bo extended to H.
Hackfold & Co.'s store.
