Honolulu, March 27. After four
years of discussion relative to the
manner of payment of endowment
funds to widoWH of inemtiers, the
San Antonio Society, composed en
tirely of Portuguese, made a rule at
a large 'meeting held on Monday
night, to pay each widow the' full
amount due her ninety days after
the death of her husband, ami in
future each member of the society
will lump his dues and other as
sessments into a monthly payment
of 82.50, or 8.n0 per year. As there
are between 1700 and 201 X) mem

society by this means will amount
to between $.")0,000 and I30,000.
