Sleimi the number of Questions that
there are to lo considered by tho Board
of Health, it is extraordinary that no meet

understood at tho last meeting that a new

Attorney General from Lahaina: but that
gentleman has been back some time and
still no meeting has taken place
Tho President of all the Boards con
tiuues to make appointments, raise or

if tho gentlemen comprising tho Board
are satisfied with this btatc of things, are
content to delcgato their to their
President, it is their own look out Hold
ing place on that Board thet are respou
siblo for what the Board does, and it is no
shelter for them to snj "tho President did

by members of tho Boards of Health and of
Lducation If gentlemen accept positions
on Boards they ought to do their duty on
them, nnd the arc not doing their duty
unless the.t hat e every matter connocted
with lh.it Board's work laid before them
These hole and corner dismissals of com
jctenl men are things that ought not to
be done-If a man is incompetent let him
lie dismissed, but with tho consent of the
Board If ho is competent ho should be
kept, the Board of Health ought not to
becomo n place for pandering to tho all
grasping Jlinister's taste for tonal favor
Tut importers of the Spreckels silt er and
their dependents and supporters thought
proper to attempt personal abuse of those
who ventured to opposo the importation
of that coin The curbstone imprecations,
the dire threats, not to be sure of shooting,
but of other terrible things, with which
guests at a social entertainment were regaled,
havo ceased. Long continued ' cus
sing" will tire out anyone
Tho solid gronnd however on which tho
silter people have stood from tho first is,
that all objections to tho introduction of
that coin were based on political motites
A desiro to injure tho good namo or business
interests of thoso concerned is also
charged, accompanied with considerable
This was a peculiarly unfortunate
method to adopt H a regard forpolitical
interests means, as it ought to do, a regard
for public intewsts, no one can bo mal igned
by the accusation that ho is acting for
what he deems to bo for tho public benefit
If personal hostility is charged as tho
motitu of thoso who opposed tho coming
of that silver, buch charge will not for a
moment bear int estigation. As well chariro
the Got eminent with being influenced by-personal
hostility to Sir. Spreckels and to
itself, in advocating and approving the
gold law, and from the fact that it has led
off in discounting that same silver fourteen
The contract by which Government gold
bonds were to be sold at twenty per cent
below par was an illegal contract, which
would not bear judicial inquiry. Af tcrits
trial in tho Supremo Court, it was appar
ently jnven un bv mutual con-sent Hut
tho public injury was nevertheless allowed
to bo uone, by conceding to private persons
the right to introduce, without payment
of duties, and put into circulation,
that large tolume of silver coin. If the
duties required by law had been collected,
the Government would to-day be at so
much less loss in replacing the gold, for
ten tcr cent on a million dollars is one
hundred thousand dollars.
It ought to bo plain that tho motives of
Sir Spreckels in this transaction, or of
the Government in supporting it, however
plain they were, arc of comparatively no
consequence to tho public. Itor aro tho
motives of those who by fair proceedings
in a court of justico sought to prevent that
business of the slightest concern, tho real
question then being, the public benefit or
harm which would result That question
one must admit is no longer open. It
was a very harmful transaction to allow
$1,000,000 in silver coin to bo brought hero
for tho benefit of private persons, and to
remit tho duties which by lawweroleviable
on that coin, besides paying seme ninety
thousand dollars for dies, coining, commissions
and freight for this precious coin.
II tho same coin had paid into tho Treasury
for tho sold bondf, o tho Hawaiian Gov
eminent, tho expense of exchanging it for
gout to meet mo, jrruircments ot mo gold
Act would hate, been a heawtas on tho
community, so that in cither case it was a
bad job, mo moral of which is that law
makers and smardians oucht at least to
.pretend toobfiy the law.
The agree ment of Uie Chamber of Commerce
to lrxe silver certificates in lien of
.ml.l mn Tin uinrn sao the country from
tho final necessity of obtaining the gold
by exporting silver, than would an agreement
to dispense in Honolulu with the of
law of gravitation change the specific
gravity of bodies
If that agreement (to take certificates)
'nlled tho Cabinet into a sense of security in
in relying npon silver, and tho non presentation is
of tho certificates, it would be
better to have let tho law take its course.
Tho depreciation of silver was a neccs
sarv consequence of keeping too much of of
it, and of having too fittlo gold for tho
purposes of the currency Act H tho coin
exchange had been fully made by Dec. 1,
tho Hawaiian silver remaining would have
been in full demand, so that there would
bo no occasion for tho Financo Office to
publish it at 1 1 per cent discount ; no cause
for meetings of tho Chamber of Commerce
to consider whether tho time had come to
declare tho bullion valnc of that silver a
no talk of what the Chinese or nathes or
mechanics may do if left high and dry
with nothing bnt So cent silver dollars in of
place of tho gold to which tho law entitles
them. It is unwise, it is folly and mad
ness. to wait for mntterings from tho crowd,
for Chinese pressure, to induce tho authorities
to set thintrs nffht Thoso are not
the influences to which this communitv
should. een by inference, seem to appeal it
for its rights, for it is an unsafe preco
"We appreciate the responsibility of the
Chamber in declaring tho actual value of
the silver as the valuo they wnll accept
Wo trust thcro may be no necessity for tho
step But that bodj took upon itself a
grave responsibility in causin" tho certifi
catcs to bo withheld, leaving the Treasury
deposit to bo used for many olier purposes
besides its legitimate one of redeeming
certificates, and inoro than all, we fear,
inducing tho Cabinet to put off tho per
fonnanco of their duty of providing more
Tognoup such agreement now would
set gold circulating, and demonstrate to
the Cabinet that they cannot with safety
to themsehes or tho Government longer
defer a thorough compliance with the currency
An immodiatc, but certain and legular
deijortation of silt er and bringingmof gold
will straighten out matters beyond doubt
Just now Hawaiian siher is liko Humpty
Dumpty on tho wall, if he is allowed to
All the King's Lories, all the Kins 8 men,
Could not put Humpty Dumpty to RctUcr flRiia.
Tnr recent publication of a so called report
of tho Commissioners at largo in tho
South Pacific demands attention, not from
tho intrinsic value of the precious docu
ment and its appendices, but from the
utter absurdity of it and from certain
extraordinary statements, which iiw tuo,
tho Got eminent apologist has managed to
group around his central idea
In the first place the statement is mado
that criticism on this affair emanated from
the 'enemies of tho King." Wo doubt
very nnlch indeed whether this idea of in
tcmewmg petty chiefs of half started
islands emanated from His Maiest t 's mind.
Tho idea originated in tho fertilo and
Eastern imagination of that one of tho
Ministers whose opinions dominato thoso
of the rest Granted however, that the
King did originate the folly, why should
thoso who criticize it bo regarded as enemies
of tho King Can a King not err Can
he not commit folly ? Is he different from
other men and is folly not to be laughed
at. Wo trow not
We criticize our friends, tho shafts of
wit and of satuo aro found beneficial in
social life, why shoild they bo withheld
when such legitimate game as the South
Sea Annexation scheme came on Tho
men who satirized that schemo and the
members of tho expedition wcro far moro
tho King's friends than thoso who went
upon it, or who first planned it "King's
enemies!" the phrase is absolutely absurd
Tho opponents of this stupid scheme but
pursued a legitimate course in laughing
at a hjige joko which tho unfortunato tax
payers will hat o to foot a bill for If satire
Is legitimate between private individuals,
it is legitimate against sovereigns no mat
ter how lofty or how lowly they may be,
whether they rule all tho Uussias or
whether they dominate tho head of a bar
id floating in a southern sea. The King's
enemies are his Ministry which has mado
mm thoroughly unpopular
Tho next statement wo woidd like to
retiotv is that as tho report of Capt Tnpp
camo too late for embodying in tho F. O.
lteport to tho Legislature, the implication
is that tho leport could not therefoio bo
put before tho country As an act of clem
eney, and thanks to tho efforts of that truly
unofficial organ which bo ably mirrors the
wishes of tho Government, tho information
is put forward about nine months after it
was received It is absolutely absurd to
gull people that it could not be supplied
before Tho fact is that as long as u trial
was hanging over the heads of the Cabi
net they dared not publish it becausothey
knew not what might be elicited, but the
chanco of a trial having disappeared from
their horizon, they were then xirepared to
"cook" their story to suit the Hawaiian
palate, nnd hau produced it This is tho
result that most peoxlo come to when thoy
set to work to think about the matter
Tor results of this expedition,
we hato a wrecked vessel and a bundlo of
letters, signed by half a dozen unbrceched
barbarians who, thanks to the educating
mfluenco of tho Hawaiian Envoy, burst
forth into full blown Kings That mighty
potentate, "by tho Grace of God King of
Butaritan," who was visited by tho "God
of Gods" while away in "one of the pro
tinces of his kingdom," and "ended Ins
work in this world to rest in tho other
world," wo find on examination dwelt on
an island exactly six miles long by ono
half to a milo wide! Wo must criticize
tho Hawaiian Eutoy. ho has not taught
the lesson properly Tho smaller tho ter
ntory, tho greater should bo tho assumption
of titles Thcro w as onco a territory
twelto miles in circumference, inhabited
by pigmies six inches high, whose mon
arch understood how to assert himself.
In a celebrated stato document which has
been preserved, fortunately, to our own
times ho styled himself:
"Golbnsto Momarem Eolamo Gurdilo
Shepin ilully 2f ully Gue, most flighty Em
peror of Lilliput, delight and terror of tho
Uniterse, whoso dominions extend fito
thousand Uwtrtngt (about twelvo miles in
circumference) to tho extremities of tho
globe; Monarch of all ilonarchs, taller
than tho bons of men; whoso feet press
dotvn to tho center, and whoso head strikes
against ihc sun; at whose nod tho princes
of tho earth shako their knees; pleasant as
spring, comfortablo as summer, beautiful
as autumn, dreadful as winter."
Xow hud tho Mighty Monarch of Makin,
or Butaritari started his letter something
after tho above mould, wo should have felt
that tho expedition had not been in vain,
that tho light of literature had begun to
shine in the South Pacific, that civilization
woidd bpread among tho isles of tho bea,
and that to Hawaii's brow another laurel
woidd hato been added. Alas! that so
golden an opportunity has been lost. The
next Hntoy that goes southwards should
not forget to tako a pocket edition of Gnl
liver along with him. All will then go
Accohdino to the official stntemcut of
tbo Itcsistrar of Public Accounts, thera
were SfOlOjGDO of certificates of deposit
outstanding on uio ibui instant, wliicli by
law nro redeeinablo on demand at tbe
Treasury in "United States gold coin, and
sOi.alU oi ten dollar certilicates, in like
manner redeomablo in silver coin.
By tbo &amo statement, tbe amount of
"United States gold coin in tbo Treasury
at that date was $323,000, or ?323,C90,less
'than is required for redeeming tbo certifi
cates wliicb arc jiayable in gold.
Tbo Registrar also announces that tbo
Treasury lias sufficient silver coin to ro
ileem tbe ten dollar certificates, and, esti
mating tbo Hawaiian silver as worth SG
cecnts on a dollar, that tbo Treasury has
S3.3,40G CO in silver coin as tbe equivalent
oE Uie SKBSWJU dehcit oi gold coin.
"Wo commend that officer for thus mak
ing public tbo condition of tbo Treasury.
Nothing is so likely to cans distrust as
tbo attempt to conceal, or exaggerate, com
bincd as it usually is, with ostentatious
defianco of the public right to havo correct
and iull information on iucb matters
As ho bas however, placed an official
valuation upon Hawaiian silver coin which
is considerably abovo its actual market
vnlno. na liulbon. tbo nublic will use its
valued by tho bank of California at 85
dollars. Bar silver by latest quotations is
worth loss than it "was then Xhebullion
valuo of tho coin in Honolulu varying ac
cording to its proportions of dollars and
fractions of a dollar, can onlj be shown in
tho mode provided in the currency Act, by
advertising for tenders to purchase it for
exportation, with tho condition that it bo
melted down in San Francisco, and not
sold thcro for re-importation.
It is not our desire to treat this question
the gold deficit in a way tending to
cause unnecessary alarm. Wo are aware
that in tho opinion of a few, there is no
danger in relying upon tho present supply
mo .treasury, as long as silver enough
kept there to represent, at its bullion
value tho amount of gold for which tho
certificates call. Thosowho entertain that
opinion base it npon tho fact that banks
issue are not expected to hold, and for W.
usually do not hold, at any one timo
enough gold to redeem all their
ng notes, and that Got ernments do not usually
keep on hand gold enough to pay all
their bonds, before they become payable.
This argument is unsound and eminently
unsafe. Banks authorized to issuo paper
money make their profits largely because
tho law permits them to issue notes with
specie basis less in amount than tho vol
ume of their notes. Such banks arc required
to givo securities or hold riroporty W.
valuo equivalent to all their notes, their
olhccrs aro to some extent liable, and tho
banks themselves, as corporate bodies, aro
liable to the suits of individuals, and to bo
placed in a receiver's hands if their notes
arc not paid on demand.
Bnt a government cannot bo so treated.
nas no securities ior its ooiigauons, ex
cept tho good faith of its officials, and their
unswerving obedience to tho law of the
land. These certificates of deposit aro not t
bonds payablo at a future date, they aro
not given for money lent, but aro simply

Tho San Francisco Mail Service
Tor some timo past a strong desire has been
manifested Among the business men in tho colony
that tho Sin Francisco mail should be hastened,
and there seems no ruisou why this should not bo
accomplished by tho company lor their own credit
lho matter has been many times discus&cd, and
recently tho subject was brought before tho at ten
tion of the Auckland Chamber of Commerce by
by Mr J. Milcn 'Ihe result of tho consideration
was a letter which was wntten to tho Postmaster
General, to which he in duo time replied, 'lho
following is n portion of tho corrcsponccnce thus
" 7 Oar commtttco consider this matter of suffi
cient importance that steps might be taken, if ncc
cssiry, during tho present session of Parliament so
that ample time may bo given for arranging a new
contract before tho present ono expires. S. Oar
committee aro of opinion that in renewing
tho contract further timo would gained, and tho
service shortened, by omitting to call at llonolula,
as the Government of tho band wick Inlands makes
no contribution towards the snbMdy, and tho
steamers, by treaty with another company, havo
ceased tot rado there. I havo the honour to be,
fair, your obedient servant, John ICcid, Chairman.
In answer, fair Julius Vogel, the
sent the following reply:
To tho Chairman Cnambor ot Commerce, Auck
land General Post Office, 18th November, 1SS1.
Sir, I havo to acknowledge tho receipt of your
letter of tho 31st ultimo, offering suggestions by
your Chamber for improving the mail service
between New Zealand and United Kuijdom by
way of Sin Francisco. Many of tho points to
which jour Chamber draws attention were well
considered by the Government of tho day, when
arranging for tho renewal of tho service up to
Nov. lt5 XXX. Yon are no doubt aware that the
contract time between ban Francisco and Auckland
from next month is to bo shortened by 21
hours, and I would remind you that oven now the
mails are delivered at Auckland in considerably
nndcr J2 days (lho present contract time) from
San Francisco 'Ihe service may bo capable of
improvement, but nothing further m this direction
can be done during tho currency of the existing
contract, lam not aware thatthero is any
ocean mail service in the world carried out at a
speed of sixteen miles nu hour; and I think it will
be some time before the colony is likely to have
its ocean malls earned at sucn a rate of speed.
Tho Canard steamers are not now considered tho
swiftest vessels pljmgon the Atlantic. This is,
or has been af late, coacedol to tho Gnionlme;
bat even the average speed of the Atlantic steamers
has considerably under sixteen knots an hour.
The direct moil steam service by tho New Zealand
b hipping Company's fleet, between New Zealand
and the United Kingdom, which which will be
maugurated next month under contract with the
Government, will provide a regular alternative
fortnightly service with the ban Francisco line.
lhis nrobablv. was not contemplated bv vour
Chamber at the time when it discussed tho question
of tho mail service. The direct service will
afford a quicker and cheaper means for the transit
of mails between the colony and the mother conn
try than by the J3rindisi and Suez route, which it
should almost entirely supplant ns an alternate
mail lino for New Zealand. I have, Ac, Julius
Darin the last three mouths a Ionr battle has
been proceeding between New South Wales and
New eakind regarding the ban Francisco mail
service, nnd it is at length settled satisfactorily
for New Zealand. The latd Government of New
Zealand, entered into an arrangement for the service,
by which they agreed to pay 31,250 per annum
against IS,7.V) paid by New South YV ales;
although the latter was to have the benefit of tbe
terminus of tho line. For a very little moro tho
New Zealand Government could havo had the
terminua in New Zealand. They not only did not
tako advantage of such an opportunity, but they
consented to New South Wales having a power to
withdraw during tho lost twelve months ot the
contract, though New Zealand was to continue
bound. Of course, sack a provision gave the
power to New South Wales to pay what it liked
for the ycarss service, as the boats wcro still to
continue to run: to bydney. It might, however,
at least havo been supposed that New South Wales
would divide with New Zealand tbo benefit of any
reduction. This, however, they showed no disposition
to do. They gave the requisite notice of
withdrawal from the contract, intimating the
same to the New Zealand Postmaster General,
and adding significantly that this would not preclude
them from considering fresh proposals from
the contractors. Thcro was evidently an
not lo loso the service, but to obtain a reduction
of the cost; indeed, the- contractors sub
sequently admitted wuat amounted to an under
standing of this nature. The Government were
so annoyed at the manner in which it was pro-
A"W IU" fc.t4 alt" MUlimw UB ml) UVKIUIIUtU
that the contractors at least should pay for it.
In order to do this they treated the withdrawal of

IICM UUUIU MtUCa IU aUUU), ouu UUU EVUU1.0I IV
provisions xa the Post Office Act which prohibited
steamers under contract to New Zealand from
carrying the mails of other colonies without its-consent.
Accordingly, when tho Postmaster-Gen
era! of New South ale? announced later that ho
had arranged with the contractors for a reduction
of 7000, and to rejoin as a contractor subject to
New Zealand's consent, the Postmaster-General
positively refused such consent, gave notice of the
clauses in the Post Office Act, and declined to
allow the ffitJls of New bonth Wales to ba carried
unless a prior arrangement was made with him.
He informed the contractors ho would not agrto
to their arrangement with New South Vi ales unless
the made a corresponding redaction of 7000
to New Zealand. The contractors refused to mako
any allowance whatever to New Zealand, where
npon the Postmaster-General gave them formal
notice not to carry the Ncwboutli Wales mails
without his consent. Lengthened negotiations
followed, and have resulted at IengtU in that
cjIouj agreeing to pay New Zealand 700(1 for the
cartiBgeof its mails. "New Zealand will also get
tbe whole of the amounts: from the other colonies
for tho carriage of their mails. The net payment
to New Zealand wQl be about 9000.
