We Iiave no wi.-h or desire to keep ur. a profitless discussion regarding the terms upon which the two million loan has been placed in London. The joint at issue can be satisfactorily bet at rest by publishing all the documents relating to the loan. Meanwhile we abide by tin position we took in our article of Tues day last when discussing the oints raised by our morning contemjxjrary, there being no statement of fact in the lengthy communication which apreared in the "Herald" yesterday by way of re joinder to call for comment. It does not in the least degree answer the specific allegations which we male, but inferentially admits their truth. When any responsible agent of the Lon don syndicate comes out in defense or explanation we tdiall bo prepared to deal with him as the necessities of the case may require. Meanwhile our posi tion is not in the least degree weakened, and for a very good and sulficient reason it cannot be. gres;e a state of pe..f..e can remain in crystallization from irenera- tion to generation.

N-jw ileas necessarily demand an extended vocabu lary, and tin's i-s derived from two dis tinct sources. Terms relating to changing soc.'al usages spring up colloquially; ".hose which are the! outcome of new discoveries, new '. development of social or experi- ; mental science, ;ire generally in more ' scholarly hands. It is of the former : clas that tin- trie . arice hold- e.od, and ' since the innovation are .-p: -ntaneous ' and in voluntary, originating no one ' knows where, it is not ea-y to define, an ' e;fectual remedy. Educational pnvre..-, j if directed with this special object, w ill j exeit an indirect influence to this end. I OX THE PLATFORM. iatavlisemcnls. ? f HOW TO MAKE CERTAIN THE SUC CESS OF A LECTURE.

The appointment of Mr. David Day ton, to succeed Mr. Eickerton as Police Justice, in announced in our "By Au thority" column. This apj)ointment was a surprise to not a few, who did not ex pect the official lightning to strike in that quarter. Naturally enough the sur prise is accompanied by a measure of disappointment, but what the general public is concejned to know is whether this lias been a judicious exercise of the gupxinting yower by His Excel lency the Governor of Oahu. We are inclined to think that it will turn out to te an excellent selection. It is quite true that Mr. Dayton was not "bred to the law," but he has had long and varied exerierice, as Deputy Marshal, in the conduct of criminal cases in the Police Court, and he is well verced in legal forms and procedure. In short, his long training, virtually a prosecuting attorney of the Police Court, should qualify him for the discharge of the dutie.-j of Police Justice in a way to ma t acceptance with the bar and pub lie. There is little fear of a miscarriage of justice in his hands. Having said this in deference to the criticism w e have heard upon the appointment, we shall conclude by congratulating Mr. Dayton upon his promotion, confident that his career upon the bench will most Effect ually vindicate the wisdom of hie appointment. a meeting of Mystic Knights of Pythias, held last evening: Geo.

Beginning with the new year, this butter will 1h delivered once a week throughout the city in quantities to suit. CORRUPTIONS OF THE LANGUAGE. An American paper laments over the numerous inelegant innovations con stantly introduced into the English language. Having their origin among the masses in the shape of slang terms, they gradually find their way into the newspapers, and some of them even into the less evanescent literature. Dif ferent peculiarities are grafted in differ ent localities, forming local dialects, and the fear is hinted at that before the Uto pia of a universal English language is realized, it will of itself Itav be come disintegrated into a babel of tongues almost as diverse as those already existing. It cannot be denied that there are good grounds for complaint. Our modes of expression are fast deteriorating among a large class. But that there is any good reason for the ultimate apprehension is less clear, for a counteracting influence is ever at work and every year becoming more jotent. j Provincialisms, as they were originally i called, have less congenial soil for their j propagation to-day than at any time in j tue past, for the several populations among which they are generated are constantly intermingling, so that the cor ruptions daily growing u are to a great extent auia'gamated. It is a patent fact that the language of ni prj- Oilifin a'ln. On Tuesday morning, at 11 o'chxk, Captain Luis A. Goni of the Chilean corvette Pile mayo, accompanied by Mr. F. A.

Gibson, Minister of Foreign Affairs. Ciritiuia Kiilcrlaiiiuient. The Christmas entertainment of the Bethel Fnion Sunday-school will be held this evening at the Lyceum at 7 o'clock. Besides the children of the Sunday school, their parents and friends are cordially invited to be present. ) Out of some years of experience I ven- ture a few suggestions that if followed ! will enable the hearers to get all the light and enjoyment contained iu any public ad dress, and that every time. One thing even the most careless will see The addresa that is a signal success i to-tiight can not 1 a failure to morrow ! night if the condition, the unrounding the same. Halls, churches, audiences, expectations change: the language of the lecture does not materially change, and only as he is chilled by empty seats and the shivers of a cold stove, or opposed by the echoes, will his delivery change. If it be clear, charming, thorou-h!red to-night, to-morrow night on a platform as cosy and before as many people, it w ill not be cold and half-bred. Having secured a speaker, you will be lieve will please the people, of course you wish to do all you con to help him please. The first question then is that of an audience-room. A frequent mistake at this point is the dream that the larger the room the more people will attend, the more money be gained, and the preater the success every way. Of course you should know enouph of the temper of your people to form an idea of the number you and the speaker together can "draw'for you can count on the fingers of one hand the American names that, unaided, will draw a fair house, and those you must pay into the hundreds to get. CHOICE OF A ROOM. Better choose a room a little pinched than much too large. Overflow the regu lar seats, fill up the aisles, and you lift your speaker up to a point whereon, if he be a mental athlete, he will lift the people. There is eloquence in a row standing againat the wall No man ever admires himself or the audience while speaking to fifty people and 500 chairs. In the average town of 1,000 to 2,000 people you do well when ou get 200 to pay their way to a lecture; and a small room will seat that number. Having determined how small a room will fit the audience, look for the room that has the best reputation for ease in speaking and hearing. Where it is hard speaking it is hard hearing, and you never thoroughly liked anything you worked , hard to listen to, yet missed parts of it. Between the hall and the church of suitable size, etc., always take the church. ; It Is generally better lighted, seated, warmed, and ventilated, and Infinitely cleaner, quieter and more in harmony with right sentiments, even when fet to the music of humor. The average hall has a high naked stage, with wings and curtains that check the sound of the voice, a bare, ; dirty floor, hard, soiled seats, dingy walla . and windows, tobacco on the stove and the stairs painted with it. Your minstrel patrons like to go there, but they don't go : there for the lecture with a moral pur- l pose and pay their way; and even when ! free they only lounge in and out to the an- 1 noyance of all listeners. Your best, clear- j minde-d thinkers and workers your men j and women with whom the good thought ' is seed sown in good ground do not like I to enter such holes up stairs; food for j brain and heart does not relish well there. A good thing is improved by being enjoyed iu a good place. And the free lecture in the down-town hall, if it has any delicacy of wit and sentiment, is ruined by the con- ! stant tramp over bare floors by boys and ' loungers who can not digest a thought in public. It U a mistake to bid for such there; they must first be trained in the ,' schools and by conversational inter- : course. TO "WORK UP AX Al'DIEXCt" When you want to "work up an audi ence" you say: Well, the way to do it is to work, at leas when entrance means ' money; and often it requires skill to get a I good free house. Haviug engaged a ; speaker begin to build up an interest in ; him and his theme. Get into your local ! paper a brief sketch of the speaker, or : anecdotes, etc,, about him, and perhaps something about the lecture, its age, nutu- ; ber of times given, etc. Anything in this ! line that has the flavor of a news item ; your journals commonly will insert with- : out charge. Then when you ask the peo- ! pie to buy tickets the name is familiar, and they more readily respond. Keep the people awake to the coming lecture as an important event. Speak of it to all you meet everywhere, except at a funeral. Good personal talking is the most paying advertisement. And you may be sure that the more earnest you are to get an audience, tee more enthusiastic will peo ple be to attend. If it is a lecture chiefly for entertain ment, nn admission fee should be charged; and then to get an audience, pay ex penses, and have somet hing left, you mut sell tickets in advance, and the further ahead the better, for the ticket-holder be comes a friend inviting others to attend. And don't leave the canvassing to chil dren; tlit y are easily put off. Send out, by districts or streets, jour best-known and esteemed mem tiers those whose good will everybody likes to share. The people you want are the thinkiug, read ing, souls capable of a pleasant evening at home; and to get them out you must convince them of something good to come. Simply the announcement of the time and place and the deposit of tickets at Smith's store will not so convince them. That method may do for a minstrel show, for the spirits it caters to don't know how to be happy at home, but are on the watch for some clownish evening resort. Jamea Clement Ambro in Inter Ocean.

But a few years ago this one was a gToeer, that a reporter, this an employe in a refining factory, that a haekman on the str eets, this a cobbler, that a stone mason, this a petti fogging lawyer, that a ne'er-do-well, living from hand to month; to-day every one rich beyond the dream of boundless avarice, com petent to purchase sites, the cot of which would have seemed to them in j-ears gone by an unattainable price, thereon to erect houses, residences, mansions, palaces, with furnishings sump: uous in detail, magnificent in design, w ith w alls on which are displayed pictures worth display, with drawing rooms and parlors fitted with every indication not alone of extreme wealth, but of tasteall witnesses to the abundant opportunity af forded in this great country to the -xorest and the humblest, so long as in his head are born ideas and in Lis bands rests that great quality, that enormous quantity, industry, perseverance, indomitable energy.
