Organization Is Completed mid ON
ecru Kleotcil for First Ycnr.
The Federation of Allied trades
of Hilo held a meeting last Satur
day night and completed its organ
ization. A constitution and By
laws were adopted, officers were
elected aud the first assessments of
dues collected from the members.
The organization has adopted
some wholesome rules for the regu
lation of the conduct of its members
in business. Drunkeness and fail
ure to live up to contracts or any
flagrant neglect of duty, renders
the offending member liable to sus
pension from the federation,
thought by the leaders that
provisions will raise the standard of
workiugmen in Hilo nnd achieve
benefits U) the employing public as
well as to the members. One clause
in the regulations binds members
to complete any job they may
undertake and sets torth no reasons
or excuses, which will be considered
justification for abandonment of
contracts once begun.
The iron clad core of the By
Laws is a short sentence in which
all members, whether contractors
or sub contractors bind themselves
not to employ Asiatics.
The meeting Saturday night was
a success. There were over sixty
to step forward and pay their first
dues. The meeting was called to
order by chairman Katidcl and in
the absence of C. L. Clement, A.
R. Hancock was appointed secre
tary In the election of officers,
Herman Ludwig and Wm. Todd
were appointed tellers and John
Bohnenbenberg Judge. The elec
tion resulted in the unanimous
choice of the following officers: H.
Kendel, President; James Cameron,
Vice President; Secretary left vac
ant, E. Wery, Treasurer; George
A general committee of fifteen
was appointed which will be divid
ed into a Board of Arbitration, a
Finance Committee and a Member

ident was escorted to the clair amid
applause and made a ringing speech

Insurance Companies Arc Opposed.
San Francisco, Cal., April 9.
The bill before the Hawaiian Legis
lature proposing to require a $25,
000 cash deposit by insurance com
panies doing business in the Terri
tory, has attracted serious attention
of the San Francisco companies
doing business in the islands.
Conferences between the com
panies having agencies in Honolulu
or writing insurance from the local
agencies have been held and the
situation thoroughly discussed.
These companies have decided
that they will withdraw from the
Hawaiian field if the deposit law is
passed in its present form.
