HAGEY CURE MISSION.
An expedition is on tho oo of
Ipiiriug Honolulu for tho lauds
under1 tho Southern Cross, which
is in the natuie of a philanthropic
niihsion and thus deserving tho
best wishes of all good citizens.
Heforouco is had to tho Hagoy
Institute company that has pas
sago engaged by tho steamer Ma
riposa due within thirty-six hourB
fiom San Francisco bound to tho
Colonies. This expedition goes
to establish in thoso lauds, begin
ning with Now Zealaud, similar
institutions to that which has
done a great service to humanity
in Honolulu, lii tiio few mouths
that it has boon in eiisteiico hero
it has cuied, including the patients
now undergoing the Iniof coin so
of tteatmcut, about one hundred
and thirty men of tho diueaso of
inebriety. Tho exceedingly few
rolnpxos that hao taken
place, it is learned, hai been of
patients who would not confoun
to tho uecossaiy discipline. Many
of thoso who have been lestored to
tho blessed condition of having
sound minds in sound bodies aio
men of nioro than average skill
and tuleut in their vocations, but
who for long periods, befoie avail
ing ot the benefits ot the Institute,
had been incapacitated by subjec
tion to tho drink habit from use-'
InliiHrtK to themselves, their famt-'
lies and tho community. That
the stiaugers who founded the
Hsgoy Institute in Houolulu
have thomselves confidence in tho
peinianoney ot its work, and hold
good faith toward tho community
now at their departure, is evi
denced in a conclusive way by
their roliuning h laigo proportion
ot tho capital stock of the enter
prise foi it is conducted on strict
business principles also by tlioir
subscription of a consideroblo
nuiouut to its peimaiient building
fund. Uiudlieaded business
men of the community havo
evinced similar coufidonco in
tho work ot tho Institute by
co-opoiating with the founders in
forming n joint stock corporation
for tho perpetual maintenance of
the Institute, together with the
full development of its social
features thot havo proved a most
important auxiliary of tho cmo
proper.' Thoro is no reason to
doubt that the Hagey Iustituto
will coiurnond itself to tho coun
tenance of tho best .people in tho
couutiies to which this expedition
is destined. Whatever successes
may bo nouiored by tho company
in its travels will reflect a degrco
of credit upon Honolulu, as two
of its members arc bright aud
keen men of buBinoss hailing
from this city in midoceun.
Some idea of the bold step in
currency reform boiug taken by
Japan may bo gained from tho'
particulars of tho measure givou
elsewhere-. An Oriental exchange,
tho Shanghai Mercury, gives the
opinions of several papors, both
English aud native, in Japan on
tho subject. Thoso that oppose
tho present odministration make
vaiious objections to tho measure.
Japan should have awaited action
on tho part of western nations, or
sought advice from them, beforo
moving. Sho ought also to havo
consulted with China and Corca so
as, if it were possible, to havo thoso
neighbors tako concuircnt action
with herself. These things they
say, also that the standard adopted
gives a gold coinago inflated, re
latively to .silver, by seven or
oight yen in the 200. Moreover,
it is held by tho objectors that
the national loans should bo read
justed beforo the now currency
comes into voguo, for there is no
reason why Jnpau should pay
fivo percent on Lor bonds after
tho gold standard is adopted. On
tho other hand, tho Government
piess urges tho Cabinet to disre
gard any clamor raised by the
opposition papers. They on
deavor to throw discredit on
tho scheme lest tho adoption
of gold monometallism should add
to tho stability of tho Matsukata
Cabinet. The only course open
to tho Cabinet is to rosolutoly
carry out tho schemo. It does
seem exceedingly courageous,
almost to tho point of foolhardi
uess, for Jnpau to exactly double
tho ratio of silver to gold, from
tho standard that holds in tho
United States currency. Her
ruling statesmen may, howevpr,
havo taken thin high ('round nftei
an uHtuto survey of tho universal
situation, fiom which it might
easily be concluded thot inter
national binii'tallism is doomed
for nu indefinite penod to be
inoioly on ncadeniic proposition.
They may also, it can be readily
imagimd, have counted upon
Japan's action as landing materi
ally to tho prolonged relative de
pression of silvei, so that the
standard they havo adopted should
bo likely to bo truo to market
values, to all visiblo intents and
purposes, permanently. Japan in
this currency revolution is cer
tainly to bo admired for hor inde
pendence. Hor statesmen could
see that tho most prosperous na
tions aro thoso maintaining a gold
slandaid, ul .hy .-dmuM Ua
not adopt it as a moans of en
suring their own country's good
financial standing ? And while
they vvoro about its adoption thoro
seems no reason why they should
havo invited financial troublo,
joined with ground of political
dissension, for tho future
by . giving their subsidiary
coinago a fictitious value
simply because other countries
had found that currency of theirs
depreciated in tho silver dolugo.
The Japanese Government, how
ever, ought oven at n saciificoto
the national tioasury provide, in
conjunction with tho uow gold
stnuduid, protection against loss
to its people upon their holdings
ot old currency silver at the pass
age of tho eiiactmeut. It will bo
seen that provision is made for
oxchango of tho old currency for
n limited period, but it is not
clear flint people of small iupiuih
nro safeguarded against cinching
by capitalists in tho process.
An insertion in ado in the call
for tenders for constructing tho
Pnli road indicates a now do
parturo that will bo hailed with
satisfaction by all friends of tho
Government. It is a condition
that fifty peicent of tho unskilled
labor must bo either white or
nntivo. This, it may bo hoped, is
the beginning of tho oucl of cheap
John work for tho nation at largo.
