SATUItD.iY, NOVHMUnn 11, 1899.
One ui tin; most important event!
locally in the near future is the re
Milt of Mi ibter Lansing's wrestle
with the surplus.
The Advertiser says that as rep
resentative of the Honolulu Cham
ber of Commerce W. O. Smith
represents practically the whole isl
t anils'. Has Hilo been heard from i
MINISTER OF FINANCE.
The appointment of Tlico. F
Lansing to the post of Minister ol
Finance at last gives the Executive
branch of the local 'government n
full working force at a time, when
activity is particularly needed. Mr
Lansing's , high standing in the
business community is well known
and as on previous occasion when
he assumed the duties of the
Finance department, (he people
have full confidence in his capacity
to properly administer the office.
His first duty will be to lend his
influence to placing in circulation
at an early day the large amount
of surplus coin in the treasury.
This money is needed by the pub
lic and it is to be presumed that
Mr. Lansing, coming fresh from
business circles will make an effort
to meet the present demand, so far
as is possible under a liberal ad
ministration. As to the political phases of the
appointment, the people can draw
their own conclusion. It is well und
erstood that in accepting a position
in the Cabinet, Mr. Lansing does
jiot withdraw from his support of
principles, which are well known to
the people of Hawaii. Mr. Lansing
lias bten classed with what is known
locally as the Opposition and a po
sition in the Cabinet cannot change
his position toward the large per
sonal political following which he
Mr. Dole has shown good judge
ment in his selection and a progres
sive administration of the Finance
Department may be anticipated.
1 lie objects of the Chamber of
Commerce, as outlined by" the Ad
vertiser, which evidently speaks for
V. O. Smith, are "to promote the
commercial prosperity of the port of
Honolulu and the Hawaiian Islands
generally, by procuring and dis
seminating statistical and other in
formation and by the employment
of agents or otherwise. It may also
ascertain, from time to time, what
legislative or diplomatic arrange
ments would conduce to the com
mercial advancement ofthe Islands
to the end that recommendations
may be made and information fur
nished to the several Departments
of the Government, and mav also
provide for the determination by
proper committees of all disputes in
commercial matters between its
members or other merchants of
Honolulu, who may see fit to submit
the same to arbitration, and gene
rally it may do nil acts and things
not inconsistent with the Constitu
tion and laws of the country to pro
mote a regular and economical sys
tem of trade and uniform and exact
proceedings in business." It is ap-
parent from this that the work'of
the Chamber of Commerce's repre
sentative is to give his undivided
attention to the commercial and'in
dustrial affairs of Honolulu and Ha
wiiit, Certainly there is enough
In this to occupy one man's entire
11 ne and thought. Thus there can
he no question of what is expected
of Mr. Smith and any deviation
from this course, which the advo
cates of qualified franchise seek,
will simply result in failure of the
mission. We believe Mr. Smith is
keen enough to appreciate the situ
ation, although some of his friends
do hope he will indulge in political

A member of Co. K, 13th Infantry, U.
S. A., who vus nl ono tlmo n member
of the Gordon Highlanders, writes to
John McLean the following Interesting
detail of army life and tho lnospects
for American mechanics:

Tho vi'iacn from Honolulu was un
eventful, occasional schools of Hying

had to break the monotony of tho tiln,
and after n vojnge of a trllle over
twenty ilayn, we dropped anchor in tho
bay of .Manila, at 2:30 n. m. At day

on our starboard tho Leon XIII, n

taken ashore in cascoes (primitive af
fairs of bygone days), landing In Ma
nila about 0 p. m. Shouldering our
arms we mnrched to the Lunetn, a
spacious camp ground situated in one
of the moBt pleasant parts of the city,
where wo halted, and, putting up our
small, individual shelter tents, we
turned Id for tho night.
Tho next day tho largo tents wero
brought ashore and then commenced
the work of laying out the streets for
tho different compnnlcs. The day was
warm, but wo all turned In with n will
and soon had them up 'In nice even
rows. I'M n ding tlmo hanging heavily
on my hands 1 procured a pass nnd
proceeded to see Manila. Tho city,
both old and now. Is under tho most
strict martial law and ono can scarcely
walk down any street In Manila with
out finding barracks, or quarters utilis
ed as such. The buildings of New Ma
nila are mostly of the old Spanish
stylo of nrchltectuio nnd ate, for tho
most part lira very dilapidated condi
tion. Tho city Is now In name only,
and on the whole n dlitler place would
bo hard to And.
Leaving tho Kscoltu (the principal
street of Manila), and turning down
any of tho streets which lead from It
ono Is greeted by tho cries of numer
ous vendois, who, displaying their va
rious waies, nro very persistent In
tlnlr efforts to mako thoVmerIcnns
purchase their goods, but ono needs

kind lurks In tho nlr. Thero nro many
pleasant, wide, clean streets In Manila,
but for the most part they1 nro narrow
end uncleanly and totally unfit for hu

opinion, the only means of paving tho
way to cleanliness in Manila is to fix

a now stock, nnd n new barrel).

After a march of two hours wo reach
