Such Would Promote Thrift
in the Territory.
Honolulu, November 19 The
trustees of the Chamber of Com
merce yesterddy adopted a report
in favor of the establishing of pos
tal savings depositories throughout
the Territory, along tha lines of
the recomendation of the Postmas
ter General. The committee sub
mitting the report, Messrs. F. M.
Swanzy and E. D. Tenney, decided
that no action need be taken with
another recommendation to the ef
fect that t lie parcels post system
should be extended. The renort.

"Regarding postal savings depo
sitories, your committee believes
that the establishment of branch
postal savings banks in country
postoffices throughout these islands
would do much to promote thrift
among our poorer classes, as it
would afford them an opportunity
of placing in a safe place their
money (from 10c. upwards), for
which they had no immediate use,
and as many country postoflices
are in the immediate vicinity of
the plantation offices, from which
large sums are paid out in wages.
a fairly good business would no
doubt be done in many such branch
postal savings banks.
"At present Japanese laborers
send large amounts of their sa vings
by postal orders to Japan. If con
fidence was established among
these people which it would be as
soon as they fully realized that the
local postollice was as safe a depo
sitory as though it were the trea
sury of the United States itself it
is quite possible that they would
not send their money away in such
quantities and would keep it more
in the country. If the establish
ment of country postal savings
banks hud this effect, it would be a
good thing for our Territory.
"Since the abolishment of the
government postal savings bank
which flourished before annexa.
tions the four local American banks
and the Japanese bank have estab
lished savings departments, so the
needs of the city of Honolulu seem
to be well provided for in the way
of savings depositories, but the
country districts are not provided
for except in certain centers not
always readily accessible to wage
"It is quite clear to your com
mittee that the general principle of
postal savings depositories is an
excellent one, and although it is
hardly probable that any recom
mendation from your Chamber will
have effect in either precipitating
or retarding legislation on a mat
ter of such importance, your com
mittee believes it would be proper
for you Chamber to lend its sup
port to the measure, as set forth in
the Senate Bill 6484, GOth Con
gress, 1st Session, entitled 'A Bill

Out of the wreckage; washed

these were made into fish-hooks to

messages written in pencil were
