F1UDAY, JAN. 29, 1897.
Minister Datnou has issued tho
treasury statement for December,
1896, compared with tho corres
ponding month in 1895. At tho
first of the month tho current
nccouut balance was 22,301.32,
against $9100.98, an iucrcaso of
812,894.34. Tho loan fund ac
count balanco was 8214,890.20, an
increnso over Novembor 30, 1895,
of S17G.751.57. Tho ordinary re
ceipts for tho month wero 8591,
890.80, against 8409,102.80 in
December, 1895. NoGovoruinont
bonds wero sold this last Decom
ber, while- 818,000 worth went
off tho last month of 1S95.
From tho Postal Savings Bank
v"" 2t1.22 was received in Decern
b-., 1893, and S37.209.7G in tho
corresponding month ot tho pre
vious yoar. Most of tbo items
show an increase, the most uotablo
being that of tho Post Oflico, whoso
receipt woro S12.131.31 against
8C743.90 in December, lhW. Tho
ordinary expenditures wore 8520,
501.92, against 8450,073.48, an ap
parent incroaso of 801,491.44. As
one of tho items for this last mouth
was a transfer of 829,539.14 to cor
l.... previous enor, tho actual
incrcaso for tho month would be
$34,952.30. Tho most uotablo
ir.cr-c.e is of intorost paid,
which was S107,2G1.04, compar
od with S71.991.22 in Decomber,
1895, a difference of S35,2o9.82,
more than accounting for the au
tual inorease. Support of the
military cost about 87000 less
than in December of the previous
year. It is to bo hoped that sue
ceediug months will witness fur
ther shaving down of this item.
Payments of 810,000 on treasury
notes wore mado tho correspond
ing month of 1895, nothing in
December last, but total payments
under loan wero 800,073.20 in
December, 1890, against 841,073.
45, including tho 810,000 un treas
ury notes, in Decombor, 1895.
Current account balanco, Decem
ber 31, 1895, was 822,490.30, and
loan fund balauco, 81G.729.4C, a
total of 8C9.225.70, against current
account balanco,Decerabor 31,1890,
of 893,027.20, and loan fuud bal
ance of 8221,505.90, a total troasury
balauco of 8315,193.10. Tbo graud
total under head of expenditures
for December, 1895, is 8500,972.09,
and for the samo month of last
year 8895,831.31, an increase of
$32S,S5d.G5. Tho net indebted
ness on December 31, 1890, was
83,914,008.35, against 83,701,335.

If thore is ono thing moro
gratifying than another, in tho
currout activities of tho Govern
ment, it is tho progress of road
making on Hawaii, tho largost
island of tho group, also tho ono
with tho most available land for
- nu'iicnltural settlement. These
fl"-- a largo proportion of tho
. news in the iiilo papers is in re-
gnul to the stnges ot work on loiul
building contracts. Last week
tho Government gavo out con
tracts amounting to $2G,G10 for
now roads in North and South'
Kona. It promises to bo soon
that "tho big island" may bo
thoroughly toured on wheels
including bicycles ns a matter
of holiday pleasure, instead of
having oxtouaivo areas as dow
only within visiting reach upon
horseback, under hardships maui
fold endured from sheor business

An Opinion Unit the llrltlxli Scheme
lMIIMilctrnck ,ll Othori.
Tho following is from tho Com
mercial Journal, whoso editor is
iu a position to bo well informed
on this subject:
There nro porhaps fow people
in Hawaii who aro nwnro of tho
oxact position of the Pacific cable
question iu tho United States and
Canada. Iu former issues wo took
the position that tho cable from
Canada to Australia would bo laid
and controlled by tho Canadian
Pacific Telegraph Company, sub
ject to certain govornmout res
trictions, and from tho uiongro in
formation at hand as to what has
been agreed upon by tho Colonial
and Imperial cable commissioners
our information has boon confirm
ed by tho representatives of tho
G veruments interested.
At first thought it may bn asked
uy some: vimt lias ununan or
the Canadian Pacific TVlogiaph
n ,i ...in. ..ut..Di.. '.:
ness iu tho United Sates ? Tho
roply to this question ia that
whilo .Canada has perhaps no in
fluence over cablo matters iu
Amorica, tho Cauadiau Pacific
Telegraph Company has from tho
fuct that many of its largest
stockholders are Americans and
also from its close business re a
tions with tho Postal Telegraph
Company. As a mattor of fact it
may bo said that tho proprietor
ship and management of tho Ca
nadian Telegraph Company, tho
Postal Telegraph Company, tho
Commercial Cablo Company, the
United States aud Hayti Tele
graph and Cablo Company, are
practically ono and the same ex
cept as rogards heads of working
departments. Mr. V. O. Van
Horn, tho president of tho C. P.
By. Co. aud O. P. By. S. S. Co. is
the president of tho C. P. B. Tele
graph Company, operating iu
Cauada aud vice prosidtiut of tho
Postal Tolograph Company of the
Uuitocl Otntos. .Mr. John W
Mookay is president of tho latte
Compauy aud heavily interested
financially iu both. These men
with their associates control tho
Commercial Cablo Company and
thp United States and Hayti Com
pany. They without doubt form
tho strongest telegraphic comhiim
tiou iu the United States aud
their manipulation of tho cable
scheme from Now York to South
American points aud tho success
ful inauguiation of tho latter ser
viceintho faceof what was intended
as an exclusive franchise from the
United Statos Congress to tho
Western Uuiou Company goes to
prove what thoy can accomplish
when thoy undertake a proportion.
These aro tho mou whom Mr.
Spalding and all others seeking
aid from the American Congress
for Pacific Cuble schemes from
America in opposition to tho
British lino havo to contend
against. These men realize the
necossity for tho Canadian-Aus
traliau lino, and also realize that
it will bo many years boforo more
than one cablo eutorpriso can be
successfully operated across tho
Pacific. When tho Canadian
Australian lino is open for busi
ness it will undoubtedly bo oper
ated iu connection with tho com
bination of companies enumerated
abovo. Tho British line will be
complolod within a yoar to
Norfolk Island, from which
point branch lines will be laid to
the Australian colouios and also
to Japan aud China. Wo under
stand a proposition will be sub
mitted to tho Hawaiian Govorn
mout by tho British promotors to
leaso a small island for cablo pur-
poses, which wo sincerely nopo
may bo satisfactorily arranged, as
it will bn tho only opportunity
this country will havo to securo
cubl3 connection for many yoars
to come. Mr. Spalding and his
friends havo absolutely no possi
ble chance of Bucccoding oither in
Coimrcss or'with capitalists against
the foregoing combination.

W'nve In Honolulu.
A vessel arriving from tho other
sido of Oahu sighted n big spar,
and on running closo up it was
found to bo tho north polo. Tho
polo was covorod with ico, and a
fow soals and whaloa woro sport-
, ing about it. On closer oxamina
I tiou, bullots with tho private
I marks of explorers who have been
trying to swipo this old stick for
' centuries gone by woro found. Tho
' polo huntors probably got cold feet
boforo getting near tho big stick,
so tlioy shot at it at long raugo
out of spite. Tho continued
' shooting of bullets at tho polo
I very likoly loosened it from its
I position in tho dreary Arctic
regions, which explains why
Peary and Nausen failed to find
tho blamed thing, it having float
ed slowly out of tho Arctic Ocean
into tho Pacific. People havo
been wondering why wo havo had
bo much cool woather latoly, and
tho foregoing is the reason. Iu
daytime- tho sun gives us so
much warmth that wo do not fool
the cold as we do whon he has
retired in the west. Howevor,
tho ico is molting gradually, and
the polo itself is drifting toward
its southom brother iu tho An
tarctic, so leas cold nights will bo
hero again. If any of the good
people iu Honolulu don't believe
this story, let thorn go down and
see tho mariner who discovered
the tiling. Why I tho old salt
shivered so while- telling his tale,
that five falso teeth dropped into
tho bay, and ho is now tryinc to
