WEDSKSDAY, FEBRDAIir 18. 16S5.
Tms "agreeing'' (tint silver is equal to
gold is useless and almost silly. iJYhcn
one reflects, it is like children making
lxjlievc," or "playing soldier." The singular
fact about their calling silver eqnnl
to gold is, tliat grown peoplo sbonld be
found who appear to think that there is
some efficacy in tho performance.
"N'c confess that we like to have things
called by their right names. Tho most
enthusiastic patriots can no more add
twenty per cent to tho value of silver, than
during the American civil war Uiey could
pell greenbacks at par.
We challengo the Government to publish
tho list of the names of those who
havo drawn gold out of tho Treasnry. Let
us know who it is that has drawn out tho
amount of $325,000, which from tho pub.
lished statement of tho Treasury was on
hand Dcccmlxr ICth. AVild rumors arq
running around of n "corner" having been
made in gold. AVc lielievo that no such
"corner' has been made; it is for tho Gov
eminent who started this ball rolling to
prove its truth. Trot out your statement
and your proofs Messrs. Ministers.
Now that Mark Twain has written and
pnblished in tho Century for February, his
story of "Koyalty on tho Mississippi," he
had defer for n while
Notwithstanding Mr.Twain's visit
with the Innocents Abroad, where he must
have seen a great deal of "Kings and
"Dukes," ho clearly has attainod no higher
conceptions of titled iersonat;cs than when
in his youth ho "marked twain" niton the
Possibly ho thinks that his Uippant, not
to say contemptuous manner of alluding
to The Great And Tho Good, may servo to
bring them down tohislovelof estimating
It is much to be feared that such tales
as we allndo to mav bo read by tho young
and giddy, who will thereby bo induced to
treat all such matters with levity. AVo
have, wo aro forced to admit it, heard
more than one gray haired person, men
who aro ordinarily as staid as "Leviticus,"
develop an unliecoming horse laugh upon
reading this rot af Mr. Twain's.
He M T. -may not heed our warning,
but wo give him tho chance.
DrxAjiiTX fiends arc and ought to bo
treated everywhere as enemies of tho hu
man nice. Xo civilized nationught to
hesitate to enact tho most strinjjent laws
agaiuht, any unlicensed person making,
using, selling, eiitorting, importing or
having in possession nn article so dangerous
to the community as is dynamite.
It would bo well also to enact that any
ship having dynamite on board bo con
tlemned and confiscated. With such n
law, properly enforced, every ship owner
and marine underwriter, every officer pn
board would liecomo a detective.
In no other way can this new horror of
tho nineteenth century be put down.
Extradition treaties oucht to bomadoas
soon as practicable in order to includo all
conceivable cases of infraction of such
laws as are above outlined.
Hawaii, at its next Lcrislaturo shonld
enact ana eniorce tlynannto statutes,
this dynamite business is not going
to btop in Europe, but might as likely as
not come hitherwnrds. With the rest of
tho worldj wo have need to protect ourselves
against irresponsible rascals.
To say that silver is not in excels, is to
ignore facts. Tho entire volume of tho
circulating medium in auy country is precisely
the nmount which jeoplo , (of
their own or others' money,) nnd do not
hoard or keep on permanent -deposit.
Vhethor that money bo in gold or silver,
or both, its volumo is tho same. All who
have to send money abroad would send
United States gold (if they havo it) rather
than pay over 1J per cent for exchange
But liishop A Co. cannot sell sight
at 1J per cent for Hawaiian silver
without risking heavy loss. Irwin ft Co.
even with their large exports to draw
against, cannot sell exchange for silver at
tho same rate with gold. This means that
peoplo havo too largo a proportion of their
money in silver.
Irwin & Co. s sixty day drafts at ono
kt cent for silver, aro equal practically to
charging three per cent for sight drafts.
If they did not know that silver is at a
discount, because there is more than is
required for the gold law, with too little
gold, they would certainly pay as much
lor the ono as tho other. If gold were not
at a premium, it would lie worth no more
for exchange than is siher.
The ways of our cabinet nrm lnsmitnliln
Tltey have a jiower which must equal tho
auiuni 'r iorce oi ismwers creation.
The Minister of Finance has been on
Maui. Ho left no (it! interim here, yet on
Saturday he authorized an order to bo
published in the Ilulletm relative to gold
INiyineuls. As tho Minister only relumed
to Honolulu on Sunday by tho Settle
it ,appea"rs somowhat miraculous that ho
could havo performed tho feat of being in
two places at once. To suddenly order tho
signature of a document in Honolulu and
bo in Lahaina at ono and tho samo time,
is a feat which few of us could accomplish
save tho distinguished gentleman in question.
But, tho solution, after much
thought has come. Xo doubt therois a
private lino of wire between Maui and
Honolulu and thus tho order has been
flashed into tho Finance Offico secret
ly. It is also in order to notice that tho
Oovernmcnl organ does not endorse tho
advertisement which was inserted through
"a misunderstanding by theofficerigning
them." Boor Mr. Pratt, according to tho
wording of tho document ho only did
what ho was ordered to do by tho blundering
Minister of Finance who was in Lahaina
at tho time. Bather mixed is it not?
There must be a very loose way of signing
documents in tho Government
Is spite of tho "Protest" of our Minister
of loroign Affairs that pestilent power,
Oenuany, seems lcnt upon a sehemo of
annexation in tho southern Pacific It is
really too bad that such a grandiloquently
worded document should liavo so soon met
with a mere spurn, in fact it is more than
a mero spurn, it is an ignoring of its ex-

they point to a gloomy future.
The British troops on tho Gordon relief
expedition aro doing superb fighting, but
Against frightful odds. Tho handful of
bravo men who aro sent to do this "work are
subjected to risks to which such men ought
?iot to be subjected. The mere momentum
of tho impact upon twelve hundred men,
of twelvo or fifteen thousand able bodied
troops, even if no better armed and disci
plined than aro tho Mahdi's forces, is too
muci for the small squares of the English
to bo expected to withstand." .
Tho ultimate success of Lord Wolsclcy
is undoubted, but it is too bad to place at
hisHisposal such inadequate means. Tho
flower of tho British army is sent across the
desert, with a certainty that tho loss of life
must bo severe in such hand to hand encounters,
and that n larger forco could do
tho work with comparative immunity. The
killing of nine commissioned officers and
enlisted men at Metomnch
shows how great was tho exposure. Coh
Burnaby's death, grappling nt tho throat
of his antagonist reveals tho desperato
nature of the conflict

Mendacious it is- -but that is nothing

for no ono hero could bo misled by such
stuff, nor any ono abroad who knows the
least outline of recent history in this kingdom.
It is plainly addressed to a foreign and
possibly ill-informed audience, but the
Government organ is not tho only Hawaiian
paper which is road in Washington as
well as in California.
Yet, there is ono lesson most forcibly
taught to readers abroad, and forcibly re
produced for .the consideration of readers
at home, and that is, that the Government
of this conntry is in direct and keen antagonism
with overy interest of the country.
Tho present Minister of Foreign Affairs
was scarcely installed in his offico, when
ho put upon record hishostility to tho producing
interests, he has now, after a long
desultory warfare, avowed hostility of tho
bitterest kind to tho mercantilo interests
as represented by tho principal houses of
Every other interest, tho mechanics and
retailers for instance, aro mainly dependent
for their earnings on tho employers,
tho planters, agents and general merchants.
With all classes'then this Government is
at open feud.
c are told that this is a Constitutional,
Bepresentative .Government- What becomes
of a Constitution whon n Government
is the most unprincipled law-breaker,
or whichis represented by a Government
at war with each and all of tho classes or
interests which it ought to serve.
in snort, whoso uovernmentis it!
The working of Chapter XXXV of tho
Penal Code, or what is commonly known
as tho "Sunday Law," is curious. Some
Chinamen were playing dominoes, an in
nocent gamo cnougn, Uiey wcro in their
own house, some of them wcro looking on.
Tho police sweep down on them and
tney are Hauled uirougli Uio streets to
vile. It is within the limits of the
law certainly, for the law reads in the sec
ond Section as follows:
Tho lard's dayi Is All worldly business,
amusements and recreation are forbidden on that
day ; and wboovcr shall keep open bis shop, store,
warehouse, or workshops shall do any manner of
labor, business or work except only works or necessity
nnd charity, or bo present at any dancing,
public amusement, shower take part in any came,
sport or play on the Lord's day, shall bo punished
by fine not exceeding ten dollars.
Much of this is of course a dead letter,
but tako tho portion of "or tako bart in
any gamo sport orplay," which deals more
especially with tho subject under review.
Wo will ask do no frames tro on on Sun
days, of which tho police or those in authority
over thopolico aro not cognizant
which go unpunished. But wo do know
of poker parties, we know of lawn tennis
playing, we know of chess playing, wo
know of many games, Bomeinnocent, some
vicious, -which aro played, and yet not a
word is said. It is not our purpose to
speak of tho morality of these things one
way or .another, but it is our purpose to
show tho glaring injustice of 'scooping
in vjiumuncn, anu allowing ouier nationalities
to amuso themselves to tho full of
Wo are no champion of the Chinese, wo
havo often placed ourselves on record
against tho Mongolians, but having them

these men should bo mado a catspaw of
Uio law. Something can bo got out of
them by tho understrappers. But tho latter
know that similar action with regard
to whites would bo squelched at once.
ano case is just tins: Money Bags arranges
his poker party, invites a Minister
or two, n prominent merchant or so, a pigeon,
a tout and a lickspittle, let them win
and lose a few thousand dollars, nnd you
will not find nn official, from tho Attorney-General
to tho latest enlisted policeman
who will seo what is going on. Lot how
over, Ah Goo tako to playing dominoes, or
let John Smith (to bring it homo to our mechanics)
play a-friendly game of cribbago
on his veranda with Tom Brown, whom
ho sees only onco in weeks, and oh! away
with him, drag him before tho Beak!
vucranatha! he is breaking tho law!
Oh, disgraceful 1 Etcetera etcetera. Tho
whole tiring is a humbug. Our worthy
magistrate interprets tho law as leniently
as ho can, but he can have no discretion,
ho must judge of tho matter as it is placed
before him and as tho statutes rule. Might
it not bo well to curb the polico in such
exhibitions of petty power?
The Hawaiian silver coinage was tin
necessary and probably a blunder. Itgavo
an opportunity which was not neglected,
for a pliant Ministry to allow a private individual,
on whoso then powerful influenco
they hoped to rely, to coin and introduce
tho money with largo profit
Tho conrso authorized bv the statute
was to sell tho coin on hand and replaco
ii wiui xiawaiian coin. Most ii not ail oi
the coin in the treasury was worth more,
in bullion value than tho now Hawaiian
coin. Tho "fivo franc pieces were worth,
compared with United States gold, 92 per
cent of their then current value, tho sovereigns
AG per cent, and tho Mexican dollars
8S per cent Theso were finally sent
out ot the country at somo expense, under
the provisions of the gold Act of 18S4. Ii,
as prescribed in tho coinago Act thoy had
been iised for buying an equivalent value
of Hawaiian silver coin, there would have
been a profit instead of loss made by tho
Treasury, and there would havo been no
glut in tho silver market AVith $500,000
less silver coin with which to start the
gold law, gold would havo already been in
general circulation. It is useless however,
to point ont errors in tho past, or to hopo
that they -will bo avoided in tho future by
the incompetents now in offico. They were
warned of ,the danger of delaying to obtain
an ample supply of gold, and of tho neces
sity of lessening tho volumo of silver, if
gold was to bo placed in circulation and
silver remain at par with gold.
No warnings were heeded. Tho only
way now to do is to have no further dealings
with them in currency matters. Tho
com deposits ought to bo drawn out, and
the outstanding certificates which aro
nothing but silver certificates, ns far as all
hopo goes of this Ministry redeeming them
in gold, ought no longer to bo taken, as
they are not legal tender, and to leavo the
coin deposits in tho Treasury is simply to
lend to that institution an unreal semblance.
It is tho money of the holders of
theso certificates, and now that it is demonstrated
bytho Government that silver
only will be paid out, tho sooner it is drawn
out the better.
Tho childish, talk, of tho Government
tho merchants being "conspirators,"
because, in tho futilo hopo of relieving
the Government they first agreed for
a timo to take certificates in lieu of gold,
and finally, on seeing that matters wero
going from bat to worse, gavo np the attempt
to give n gold value to that which
would not bring gold, is not worth notic
ing. Perhaps they will say that only "conspirators"
would presume to ask for tho
silver on thcircertificates!
When; tho coin .-deposits shall all bo
withdrawn from lhofteasury, merchants
must arrange among themselves what to
do with srirplus silver, antj how to get gold
Tor ourselves, wo seo no other way to do
this, than, to refuse, after say -two weeks
notice, lo take silver' except at SO
(cents on a dollar, ;f or i amounts of over- ten
dollars eachT That will caiiso tho hoarding
of ! unnecded silver, just as tho pres
ent condition of things causes tho
ingof tmneeded gold.
This course is especially reqnired, from
tho unfortunate fact that no ono seems to
feel certain in whoso actual possession and
control tho Hawaiian coin dies arc. There
would bo no more impossibility or illegality
in having moro Hawaiian silver
brought country than attended
tho coinago and introduction of tho first
lot Therefore, wo should say that by
giving that coin its actual gold valuo when
it is offered in lien of goldj tho gold coin
now hero may bo put into circulation, and
that exporters of produce would steadily
import gold coin, as required for their
The only alternative is to export and melt
down tho surplus silver. There is no use
in doing this unless there is perfect
that more silver will not be coined
and brought here.
THE TRUTH OF IT-
We aro Indebted to Messrs. Bishopi Co. forlhe
follcriHn? 'communication, shoving tho facts in
their dealings with tho Government about the currency.
A largo amount of falsehood may bo o seasoned
by s very little truth, or tho two may bo so interwoven
na to make it difficult for thoso not tally
informed to distincnish one from tho other.
Tho two articles in the AJnrlitcr, headed respectively
"The Currency" and "A review of tho
Currency question" are so spiteful, vicious and
personal In tone, as to put any reasonable person
on bis Kuard, and they prove oar -first statement.
They are evidenUr intended mainly for a I oreisn
market, partly to excuse tho action of ibis
as well as to show the zeal of tho .linrtittr
in the causoof its masters abroad.
Any disturbance of tho Currency is likely to bo
damaginc to business for a while, even if a cbango
It is well known by Ihojo acquainted with tho
firm of liishop & Co, or nt least with Mr. liishop
that ho was not satisfied with the Currency-law or
with the currency ns it was before the present
law was passed, that ho considered a change in-evitable:
and yet bad a dread of the transition,
and of the larpe expense of starting fairly on a
gold basis and then of maintaining it.
Since tho present law came into force, Messrs.
Bishop t Co. have, in a conservative manner,
worked steadily towards its enforcement but in a
On the 1st Dec. they had a largo amount in
Treasury Certificates, and wero owing, of course,
largely to depositors, so their interest in the freo
circulation of such certificates was a very important
They wero holding, also, in certificates, payAble
only in silver (10) considerably more than any
- By the mail which left on tho 1st Dec. Iboy sold
thousands of dollars of exchange nnd took payment
in silver. From that date cntil tho present,
it has been clearly for their interest to have tho
credit of the certificates maintained nntil a part
of the Hawaiiantsilrer could be exchanged for gold,
as they were of the opinion that if the Currency
Act was to be enforced, it could not very well bo
done without reducing tho amount of silver coin
which is not a legal tender and replacing it by coin
such as would be legal tender, a thing contemplated
and provided fur in the Act.
They felt the importance of getting mora gold
from abroad and of retaining in the conntry tho
gold already here and in order to do the latter
they overdrew their own account largely, and induced
others to do the samo, and thereby did prevent
some large sums from going away, hoping all
the time that the Government would try to carry
out the law, as for as possiblo by getting coin
from abroad to keep)thoir certificates current and
Messrs. Bishop it Co, could not control the action
of others nor prevent n demand for gold, nor
could they rof use gold to their depositors, but as
far as they could they made those demands as
light as possible. Whon exchange was scarce and
high, some ot our people ran into debt abroad,
and others saved np certificates of deposit, both
Tnitlng for the 1st Dec when exchange would be
lowor, or gold obtainableforsbipmcnt. The demand
for exchange Is said to havo been very strong over
since, so that there has been no surplus with which
to purchase gold and the Government has dono
nothing towards getting any, except for the
coins, but the Bank, C. Brewer & Co., and
Castle and Cooke, have each imported gold.
Bishop & Co. did not ship away the nncurrent
coin for the government, nor did thoy promise to
Import any gold coin before tho 1st of Dec. to bo
consigned to the government. They had a ono
third interest on the profit and expenses of tho
transaction with the parties who did mako
the shipment, and deposited Government bonds
as security. They shared in tho expense of all of
the gold imported for the Treasury, and they imported
all the gold that theyver engaged to import.
They gavo their certificates for $210,000
payable in Gold on demand, and did not watt to
have it demanded; but, being ready to pay it with
gold which they had in hand; took it (their certificate)
from the ltegistrar at tbo Bank on Dec 4,
paying him $100,000 in gold nnd ?UO,000 in Trca.
Ihoy would havo paid the gold oarlier had it
been required. They would then have sent tho
whole t210,000 in gold to the Treasury had thoy
been requested to do so, but they would havo
drawn half of it at least, the same day or soon
after, as they had a right to do, without violating
any promise or obligation.
They had not promised that nobody should
draw any gold from tho Treasnry for Certificates
or that they would not under anv circumstances
do so themselves, they had to guard their own
credit, and protect their customers.
It was expected that quito a largo nmount of
gold would be wanted immediately it could be obtained,
and that a considerable amonnt would go
away because of the scarcity of exchange, to say
nothing of tbe drain towards China.
But the amount wanted fur remittance was larger
than was anticipated. Three parties held ?160,000
which from choice or necessity thoy would send
away in exchange, if to be had on fair terms, or
otherwise in gold. Other largo amounts of extraordinary
remittances had also to bo nrovided
BiBhop it Co. arranged to satisfy all, and instead
of sending several parties to tho Treason) ty bring
gold, thereby giving the apDcaranco of creating' a
rnn for gold, they took tho certificates, nnd used
$110,000 in tho settlement of their own certificates.
In the main this was an unexpected transaction,
and was inconvenient to manage. Bishop &
Co. tried to keep the money here, by offering somo
good securities held by them, but did not succeed.
Those who know anything about banking do not
need to bo told that tho banker has not tho samo
control of his funds that a merchant or mechanic
has, but must bo ready to pay depositors when
they coll for their money, ami to piy in legal
tender if required.
Tho gold in tho bonk may bo slid tu belong to n
largo number of people, and any ono who lias
been thero often could eco that it was being used.
A .part of the community has beon trying to
carry out the law, nnd has been paying gold, and
all like to knew that they can get gold if they
ask for it ; but tho Government and its dependents,
and some of more consequence, havo J been
strongly opposed to tho enforcement of tho law,
and sccmod to wish that others might think that
black was white, or that non-legal tender silver
worth about 60 cents to tho dollar outsido of Hawaii
nci, was just as good and safe as U. Sj. gold
coin, the legal tender of this country, and good all
the world over.
What better proof .could Bishop it Co. hare
given of their wish to maintain tho currency of
the Treasnry Certificates than they gavo by taking
week before last f 25,000 in thoso certificates for a
collection draft on tho Government for immigration
account, to remit which thoy havo bought
exchange and paid gold for it, yd uhen they
asked for $10,000 in gold for tho samo
they could sot get It.
When they took thoso certificates they could
have claimed gold and should havo dono so. Had
it not been forthcoming, tho Government would
have been again dishonored, if such a government
cm be dishonored.
The memorandum of proposed agreement which
has been published was solicited by parties who
for weeks had been trying to find ont somo way to
educe the Government to relieve tho community
by an exchange of surplus silver for much wanted
gold nnd to-aid them in so doing Tho Document
was not submitted to a lawyer, but it seemed to
embody the spirit of the law and was so nearly like
what had been suggested by members of the cabinet
that it was offered for consideration. Instead
of being "rejected at sight" it was moro than a
week before the committee received an answer.
In tho meantime Bishop & Co, were conwnced of
the unfriendly disposition of tho ruling spirits in
the Government towards them. This made it imprudent
to put themselves in thepowcrof tho cabinet
and they had written to the committee withdrawing
Law breakers aro very likely to havo a hard time
of it whether they act as principals or as servants
and they often try to shift tho blame of their violations
oa to others.
Nobody con be more sihsiblc of tho inconvenience
and danger of tho present situation of affairs than
Bishop &. Co., nor can any one bo more desirous
of finding a proper way out of the trouble. If the
Government, however, belongs to a cliquo and not
to the nation and does not intend to help then
those in authority must take tho consequences.
Somo people seem to think it is the business of a
bank to take any kind of money, good, bidorirf.
duTtrent. Further, that it should always be ready
and willing to repay only awl money whatever it
may have received. And, lastly, that it is its business
to bear its own losses and those of everybody
else. It is to be treated as if it belonged to nobody.
Tbe.lirrrfirer seems unhappy' because Bishop it
Co, were not caught with a large sum in silver on
December, 1st 1861. That amiable sheet maybe
comforted. Tho enm which they did hold would
not seem a trifle even in tho Government vaults
or the P. C. AilctrluerU safe. It mav be still moro
comforted to know that Bishop and "Co, aro also
the nnfortanate holders of repudiated certificates
to no inconsiderable amount.
A full report of the state of the treasury of these
Islands would be interesting reading for the
Finance ministers in Washington, London, Paris
The following correspondence is published by
permission of Messrs. Bishop t Co. It needs no
comment, and is in itself an answer to the slanderous
remarks which have been made. The
schedulo referred to in the Minister of Finance's
letter has already been published by authority.
Hosolcxu, Dec. 13th, 1S84.
To Hit IZr. Join Af. Kapena, ilin titer of Fintitee:
Excellency will recollect that we
have m several interviews strongly advised the
iramtdiate conversion of at least $200,000 of the
current silver coin into U. B. gold coin in the manner
provided by law, in order to maintain equilibrium
between silver and gold; believing that
tending away snch an amount quickly would go
far to create confidence in the currency, and towards
reaching tbe desired end without depreciating
the whole silver currency.
In aecordAnee with the action of, tho Chamber
of Commerce, we are receiving and paying Treasury
Certificates of denominations auovo'ten dol
lars, as equivalent for gold coin, with the under-standing
that tbe gold coin in the treasury u held
for their redemption on demand.
Should there oe reason for any suspicion that
tho gold was being nsed for any ether purposo, so
as to make tho conversion ot such, certificates
doubtful, the latter will cease to circulate andwiU
be generally presented at the Treasury and "add
greatly to the embarrassment already existing or
Your Excellency must know of course, that it
would not be safe or as to receive silver coin
from oar customers except in the amount named
in the law, because wo could not oblige anybody
to take it from ns again, and we would soon be
flooded with it.
To the question frequently asked: "What am I
to do with, my silver coin?" we regret to be unable
to give Any satisfactory answer. Some holders
are willing to sell it at a discount bnt at present
we prefer to decline to receive it at all, to fixing a
value upon it below pay; though we may soon feel
compelled to namo rates at which we. will tAxait
for export and those rates most be what it will
net in San Francisco for sale aa bullion, for we do
not know what else we could do with it without
In order to prevent the export of gold coins
which are required here for curreney and as a
bails for the certificates, which are circulating as
gold, we have and Bar friends have also used their
foreign credit freely to provide exchange for this
mail and for previous mails.
We assure Vonx. Excellency, that the eommU"
tion houses and ourselves have done and are doing
all that is practicable to prevent embarrassment
in tho business of the country, and to carry out
the currency law with the least inconvenience
possible and we very much regret the failure of
His Majesty's Government to adopt what seems
to ns to be the only measure for relief from the
excess of a'currency which is not a legal lender.

GcrTLEXtES: Acknowledging the honor of receipt
of your favor: date of Dec 15th, 1881, and in
full appreciation of the Information therein con-,
voted, I hive caused a special deposit to be mado
of the sum of sixty-seven thousand five hundred
dollars to balance tho loss for converting the
silver into goId,'and of the further sum of
thousand seven hundred and sixteen
dollars and sixty cents, so that the certificates
deposit redeemable in gold are guaranteed by the
bullion value of silrcr nntil the Department obtains
the gold coin necessary for their redemption.
I refer you to tho enclosed statement by the
Department of the situation of tho Treasury on
the lGth of this month concerning the issuoof
certificates of deposit payable by the Government
in gold coin under tho currency Act, which I have
ordered to bo published.
I have the honor gentlemen to remain.
Most respectfully yours, etc,
Jorrs M. Kirral,
Minister of Finance.
Messes. Bisnor & Co.,
FiDiToaGizrrrE: llie attempt has been mado
by tho Government and certain parties in this city
to placo the blame for the present muddle in the
currcnev affairs of this Kingdom upon tho shonlders
of the bank of Bishop i. Co. and the merchants,
the chief sinners among tho latter being the officers
of C. Brewer & Co. (limited). By the same
course of unfair treatment, shop-keepers, artisans,
and laborers are led to bebeve that all the confusion,
annoyance and loss created by the changes
that have followed the passaga of the new currency
law are directly chargeable to that law, tho
bank and tho merchants.
Una of the charges made is .that the bank and
merchants drew the gold from the treasury and
boarded it. So far as the corporation of C.
Brewer. & Co. is concerned, I must say that the
chargo is unqmlifiodly false. As tho treasurer of
tho. corporation named, I can say that I drew in
three amounts the sum of twenty-five thousand
dollars in cold from the demsits nraint rortifi.
catcs, and that twenty-four thousand nine
ureu uouars in gold naro been sent to tbe estates
for which that Corporation is tho ogent, for the
purpose of paying tbe wages of artisans and
laborers thero employed. Tbe instructions to tbe
managers of estates nave been to conform to the
currency law in making payments and to err upon
tho side of paying too large a proportion of gold
rather than too small a nmnnrilnn.
This Corporation has also imparted ten thous
and uouars in goiu coin and has arranged with
tbo bank to take its exchange at a rate that will
jastify tho bank in making regular importations
of cold, nnd nnv tliinVinfy TwrsnTi mn ni1i!v tin.
dcrstand that this has only been dono at n considerable
loss to the Corporation.
I cannot speak positively, but 1 believe other
mercuonts nave been aoing the same.
The prime cause of the nnnoyanco and loss
which shop-keepers, artisans and laborers havo
experienced is unquestionably the casting unon
our community of tho million dollars of silver
coins. Any novice in finance nnd currency knows
that where silrcr and gold coins are used together
tuj cAtxas ui culver uevuim iuo amouni reqaireu
for. making change will act to displace the gold.
This was understood bv tho framers of the new
currency law and it was expected that tho Govern
ment wouiu lessen mo volume ot surer and increase
that of gold.
An appropriation of one hundred and fifty
thousand dollars was made by the Legislature for
the purposo of defraying the expenses of such
changes in the currency, and if this sum had been
wisely expended there can be no reasonable doabt
but that tho law would have worked beneficially
to all classes of persons in this Kingdom.
That tho law has not so worked can bo and is
only the fault of the Government.
A courso of reckless extravaganco of expenditure
coupled with diminished rovenuos, of which
tho Government was warned. has placed the publio
treasury in a sorrv condition, and nnlesa a radical
change of policy is brought about it requires no
gift of prophecy to predict that a still worso con-
uiuun oi anairs awaus us.
It is onlv to bo honed that in the reckless twist.
ing nnd turning for expedients to ward off what
seems now incretable the Government will not
attempt to repeal tho present currency law, for
such an act would bring npon ns a worso train of
evils than now prevail. J. O. CinTTB.
