It Pays Bigger Profits and Gives More Satisfaction
THAN OTHER PAINTS ' :
Kvery business man is in business to make money, and the underlying principle of money-making now-a-days
is to ALWAYS give the people what they ask for. The merit of the article is to be judged by the user.
If it's GOOD It SELLS.
Itecause we toll people the simple truth about Paint and Pure Raw Linseed Oil, they ask for " KIINLOCII."
Kccmise Kinloch Paint is Good they Buy it. Because it pays the dealer a better profit, he handles it.
15cOMU.se the goads are attractive, he displays them. Because ' KIINLOCII" IS ALIVfi, a satisfier, a
salos maker, a winner. Because it's advertised in his Town, in his County, in his State. That's the reason,

Talk Of Revision Of Election
HONOLULU, May S-lt. is said
that Governor Carter lias imi'.ci' con
sidcration a plan to uppoiul a com
mission for a complete and thorough
revision of the laws -after the ad
journment of the Legislature. It
will be remembered that the Govern

tion of the legislative body to this
need, the laws beirg in far from
satisfactory workiug condition, but
nothing was done in this direction at
the regular session and, of course,
nothing can be done at the extra
The matter, under the provisions
of the Organic Act, is entirely
within the province of the Governor,
and it is said that the plan is to have
the commission revise and codify the
law, and then submit the result to
Congress for action next December.
In this way a good system, free
from complications and nearly ap
proximating the model California
law, could be in working order m
time for the next general election.
Under a revised election law, bas
ed on the California model and passed
by Congress, there would be no need
for any moie election scandals. In
fact, it was an attempt to appro
priata and apply the C: lirornia law
which led to the troub.e about the
so called numbered ballots. Ilallots
are numbered under the California
system, but the numbers are torn off
before the ballot is cast, in the sight
ot the voter, and there is not even a
remote chance for IdcntificAtio'.'.
Also, the California electorate is

Kinloch Paint Co., St. Louis, Mo., U. S. A.
Gentlemen: Kinloch Taint lias been used on office buildings and
residences here with perfect satisfaction. One difficult job completed
some time ago is an eleven room resilience of hewn stone with which
the painters, Juan Buigos y Nable, are particularly pleased. It was
given only one coat of grey, with steel color fcr trimmer, and looks
as bright and ns solid and fast as could lie desired. The wail and
paint dried together perfectly hard and smooth and you may use this
statement as yon like for it is perfectly true.
Yours very truly,
Island Possessions to Work To
gether. HONOLULU, May 6 Among the
matters which Secretary Atkinson
is taking up on his mainland trip is
the coffee tariff proposition which
is regarded "as possibly of vnst im
portance to this Territory. The se
cretary iu his former trip had some
discussions of the proposition, among
those with whom he talked being
Governor Winthrop of Porto Rico,
who is also interested in the propo
sition. It is planned to have Hawaii,
Porto Rico and the Philippines join
'n a movement at Washington to get
the desired tariff.
Before leaving for the coast Secre
tary Atkinson wrote a letter to
Governor Whithrop, suggesting cer
tain lines of work to be followed.
The letter said:
"I am just as enthusiastic as ever
over the possibility of getting a duty
put on coffee, and the matter is being
worked up at this end of the line
very speedily. I have been very
much encouraged at what I have
heard, and articles that appear in
the papers from time to time seem
to show that more than likely some
action will be taken at the next
session of Congress.
I believe, in this matter, that our
interests are identical and I want
to keep in touch with you and your
work on this subject, as I believe
that ncithsr of us should make any
radical move without knowledge
of the other.
"In the first place, I think that
wc should get a strong recommenda
tion from the President in his mes
sage to the next session of congress,
asking for say 5 cents duty on coffee,
then we may be able to take the
matter up with some of the Re
publican leaders and get them
interested 011 the theory, that
to put ttis duty on would raise
enough morey to overcome the
deficit which the country is now
facing. With a good substantial
duty on coffee we would not only use
and develop every ccffeo tree grow
ing, but in five years or more we
could multiply our present crop,
t If the Philippines could be encour
aged substantially to go into coffee
then this howl over the tariff on
sugar, which brings up opposition
from mainland .planters and beet
growers would cease. It would, no
doubt, take some time before the
tropical possessions of Uncle Sam
could produce enough coffee to sup
ply the home demand, so in the
meantime the duty realized would
help the deficit and give us all a
chance to develope our coffee planta
tions. I believe the imports into the Uni
ted States during the year 1901 was,
roughly speaking 1,000,000,000 lbs;
so it would take a number of years
before we could any way approach
this figure. Still as far as we are
concerned while we are now market
ing 3,000,000 pounds, I feel sure
that in ten years with the price
of sixteen cents, we could produce
100,000,000 pounds and perhaps
double that amount.
"Before next fall I expect to get
our coffee men ogether, under some
organization, so that we may be able
to worfc consistently. I think our
chance is coining now, so far as
coffee is concerned, and I hope that
you will find time to interest your
self in this matter, so give me your
deas. if you please."

The Kinloch Paint Co., St. Louis, Mo.
Gentlemen: It is now six months since we commenced handling
Kinloch paint, and we feel assured that the showing made in the
elapsed time augurs well for large sales of our good9 iu the future.
Our sales have made it possible to now order this carload of Kin
loch which is probably the first carload shipment that has been made
to any one dealer in this city.
Our success has been due to the readiness with which the painters
took to the Kinloch argument, atid partly to the severe climatic test
that it has been subjected to here.
