cess He believed the Honolulu Utiles could
be depended upon to stand together to the
last m defense of the principles enunciated
on the 30th ot June There was not in his

ThejEuglish public and Parliament seem to
have been concerned over a rumor that the
Hawaiian Government purposed the repudia
tion of that purtioa of the loan which was
flo iled in Loudon By this timo they will
probably have been definitely informed tint
all the Hauaiiiin Government will insist upon
is a foun of bond according to the law so as
to be under oblg ltiou to repay no more than
is borrowed also that tins country will bo
