The linear stability of thin Keplerian discs of weakly ionized polytropic plasma embedded in a mixed (toroidal-poloidal) axisymmetric magnetic field is studied. The effects of the central body on the equilibrium state of the discs are modeled by an axial total current and a dipole magnetic field. Studying the amplification of high-frequency waves shows that Keplerian discs can be destabilized due to combined effects of equilibrium density stratification and poloidal magnetic field. By considering a boundary value problem in the limit of strong Hall effect, it is shown that whistler waves which are free of direct influence of compressibility, rotation and gravity, are amplified along their trajectory while other modes of wave propagation do not change their amplitude.
