hours, without coming inside, rortunatcly for
the r?enoral interests of the community, he did
not carry out that intention. But the proposi-
tion to do so, set us to thinking and enquiring,
and we found that there was really no obligation
to stop at Honolulu, but that it was left optional
with the contractors whether to stop or not.
Business men generally do what it is for their
interest to tXo, and in reckoning tlie proDaouuics
are not much affected by sentiment or by what J
others may think most advantageous. j

importance of the Australian line to us, and we !
have no hesitation in saying that it would be a i
misfortune to our agricultural interests (whereby ;
we mean the interests of the whole country) if ,

- 5 il, -
terests of the capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, ex
tend to the officers, men and marines of vessels of
war belonging to the United States, a vote of thanks
for " the invaluable services rendered in the restora
tion of peace and order," the gratification it brings
to those concerned is infinitely enhanced.
In behalf of the officers, men and marines of the
U. S. ships Tuscarora and Portsmouth, we desire to
convey through you to the members of the Chamber
of Commerce, our thanks and our appreciation of the
complimentary terms in which you have been pleased
to mention the service rendered.
We arc, gentlemen, with sentiments of great es-
teem and respect, your obedient servants,
I Geo. B. Belknap,
Commander, Commanding U. S. S. Tuscarora,
And Senior Officer Present.
J. S. Skerrett,
Commander, Commanding U. S. S. Portsmouth.
There is no question but that the present commer
cial situation is a grave one. Trade has been suffer
ing for a lonz time, and there is little prospect of
any chAnge foP the bettcn If thcrc is anjthing that
can be done to revive and increase the drooping
business of the kingdom, let it be entered upon with
out delay. We have some undeveloped resources :
ramie, manilla fibre and jute, offer great opportuni
ties. Valuable processes which in other lands are
tabool to the public by patent laws, may here be
carried on without infringment of the rights of any.
If vast and expensive enterprises in sugar produc
tion are found to be generally unprofitable, it may
be that small ones can be made generally profitable,
or that new systems of sugar culture in which many
neighboring land proprietors shall supply central- :
works owned by capitalists who shall manufacture j
the sugar on shares, or modifications of this princi-
pie, shall be found more conducive to success. Our ;
hitherto unprofitable rocky hill-sides aud crags, may
be peopled with Angora goats and a million rich .
fleeces added to our export list. These do not eecm
to exhaust the possibilities of our fresh young coun
try which has responded to the demands of but fifty
years cf civilization. More than all, we are suffer-
ing for the want of population, and nothing could bc
wiser than to press measures favoring immigration.
Under these circumstances the Chamber of Commerce
is naturally looked to fur suggestions and assistance .
. in nnn!Bin
and carrying out wise measures for the
. mi.vuvu,.U6 .u .,,,,
j public prosperity. From the intelligence cf tbe
; members cf that body the country has a right to ex-
; pect public benefit from their consultations. And it

i into American half-eagles, which subject is now ce-
I fore tbe Trivy Council. As the supporters of this
! scticmc nave discussed it DUt little in puoiic, it is not ;
ca?y to sneak of the grounds of the proposed change. ;
If any goo-J reason has been or can be given, I have j
not heard it. i
A law enacted in 1872 made American half-dollars,
! which are confessedly a depreciated coin and only
j intended to be used in paying small amounts, legal
ten Jer here for unlimited sums. French five-franc
! piece are allowed to pass here as dollars. These two
financial Llun iers, have paved the way for the prop-
csition in regard to sovereigns. The allowance of
depreciated silver as legal ten Jer without limit has
naturally had the tendency to keep away gold, and
now, in order to induce gold to return, instead of
correcting the old mistakes and placing our currency
1 consistent basis, it is propose J to

is further argued that the increasing tr,le with coun-
.. .7' .
tries where the eterluig currency is useJ makes extra
allowances in fiver of such currency necessary. This
an asscrtiwn bl anJ j, nasapporte.l by reason
, 1 J ' ,a "u-"i 1 1 au,
intelligent defense can be male in its behalf.
.An muwiration ol its natural results exposes at once
its utter fallacy. For instance : sovereigns worth
1 to any consiieraticn? Such a course, like all doc-
, innes ci iegisiauua cn vaaues, cow nappuy cxpiodeJ
j'in most places, couii mult ia nothing but increased
confusion and public inconvenience and ljS3. No
nation and no clai-s can ask with propriety that their
money or any msaey shall circulate anywhere ut
mure than its intrinsic value. This position is so
natural, sensible aad clear, that it is difficult to im
agine how it can be ignored. Under this principle,
it is unmistakeably wrensr f.-r us to pass sovereigns
i at four dollars getcnty-hTe cents ; but if we pass
J them at four dollars eighty-six cents, which change
oaght to be effected immediately, we will be doing
I all that any one can ask. As well might the Ameri
I can government be requested to enact that sover-
j eigns should be Torth five dollars in America as
oura tne tra,je between America and England be
exceedingly great and tbe same reasons existing for
such a measure as here.
It is easy to be confused in measures pertaining to
the principles of the various kimls of paper currency,
but ia regard to a currency of coin, its c fBce as a rigid
measure of Talue, exactly as a yard stick is a meas
ure of length, is to well understood and recognized
to be trifled with Walker, ia his " Science of
Wealth," speakin; of such a currency says: "Of
all subjects, this isone of the most simple, most free
from all complexitj and mystery. Xo one can fail to
understand it. GtTcrnment has not the slightest oc
casion to interfere with or regulate it. It obeys cer
tain natural laws, which cannot be improved by men.
All that Governmau can usefully do is to certify to
the weight and iueness of the coinage. It has no
further concern w.th money. The main point to be
borne ia mind ia station to coinage is, that Govern
ment does not determine the value at all, but simply
certifies to the weijht and purity." The principle is
fully established ly all the authorities ia political
economy, and caiuot be intelligently questioned nor
ever properly comi up under any circumstances as a
matter even of delate.
In regard to our need of gold, there is no doubt
but that it is a convenience, perhaps a necessity in
our foreign trade, but as we have discouraged its
presence by our ova legislation, the first step to be
takea to bring it bick to our circulation, is to rectify
such pernicious kjislation, not to carry it to irreater
lengths. The fact of exchange being against us for
a long time has kejt gold from coming here: but this
is a temporary circimstance, the present tendency in
trade being to maki exchange in our favor at aa early
period. For our internal circulation, we have not
the slightest necessity for gold, silver and silver cer
tificates being equal to all possible demands of con
venience or necessity.
There is no doubt but that travelers from Australia
and New Zealand would be greatly benefitted by the
proposed change. Speculators would have a chance
for profits, and a few business men here would per
haps find the new arrangement a temporary conven
ience. But for these trifling advantages, should our
Government wonni its own prosperity, impair its
contracts and thoio of its citizens, and injure its
credit, by the passage of indefensible currency regu
lations T S. B. Dole.
Was there no Danger ?
It was with surprise that I read the " leader " in
the last issue of the J"uhou, in which it was stated
that no "foreign armed intervention was needed"
to suppress the late election riot; that the Berious in
tentional rioters were neither " savage nor murder
ous," and that the publisher of the Juhou "felt
that he had no occasion to fear any personal as
sault." Who was it that went to the hardware store of
Dillingham & Co. on the evening of the riot, pur
chased a revolver and got Mr. Dillingham to drive

History repeats itself, and the imagination of the
great poet sometimes foreshadowed actual events.
When the sack-loving Jack sent his ragged regi
ment into the hottest of the fight at the battle of
Shrewsbury and stood in a secure position, where he
could scent the battle afar off, and where Douglass
crossed swords with him and Jack fell and feigned
death, and Prince Henry after he had vanquished
Hotspur and pronounced the eulogy on Jack, that
he could have " better spared a better man," it was a
dim foreshadowing: of a certain person on the. even,
mg v ot rt. Antr iue 0 utie wasover, lie camo
forth, soliloquized, stabbed and shouldered the dead
Percy, resolving to claim all the honor of his death,
and encountered Prince Hal :
" Prince Henry. Why Percy I killed myself, and
saw thee dead.
"Falstaff. Didst thou? Lord, lord, how this
world is given to lying ! I grant you I was down
and out of breath; and so was he; but we rose both
at au instant and fought a long hour by Shrewsbury
And so from his counterfeit position on the battle
field, he endeavors to make capital. It requires no
Plutarch to draw the parallel. Squid.
