Honolulu, May 14. S. C. Allen,
one of the best known business men
of Honolulu, mid an old knmaaina,
died suddenly at bis Richards street
home late last night. His death
comes as a great suocjc to all tits
friends as it was entirely unex
pected. Mr. Allen was at his office yes
terday afternoon, attending to his
business as usual, and apparently
iu his usual health. Late in the
ntternooti be went out for his usual
drive and returned to his home for
About nine o'clock in the even
ing he suddenly became unwell.
Dr. George Augur was telephoned
and arriving quickly at Mr. Allen's
residence found the latter pacing
the floor of his drawing room.
Within fifteen minutes Mr. Allen
was dead. Dr. Augur pronounced
his death to be due to heart failure.
Friends and relatives of Mr.
Allen were quickly summoned and
arrangements were made for the
funeral which is to take place from
the Allen residence at four o'clock
The late Mr. Allen has been very
prominently identified with the de
velopment of the Hawaiian Islands
in a commercial way. He was not
a politician and devoted his whole
energies to building up large busi
ness enterprises. At the time of
his death he was a member of the
well known firm of Allen & Robin
son, prominently connected with
the lumber, sugar and shipping en
terprises; president of several plan
tationsV and a director of many
others, and also president of the
Samuel Clessou Allen was born
at New Salem, Mass., on May, 17,
1 83 1. He was the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Frederick H. Allen. At an
early age he removed to Bangor,
Maine, where he attended school,
and later attended the famous
Abbott Family School, at Farming
At a very early age he went to
Boston and became a clerk in the
wholesale dry goods house of Wil
kinson, Stetson & Co., in Milk
street. He left Boston in the spring
of 1850 on the American ship k,Lo
Clioo" for the Hawaiian Islands,
arriving here in the fall of the year.
Soon after his arrival in Hawaii
Mr. Allen joined with Mr. W. A.
Aldrich in a general merchandise
business and has been actively en
gaged in large business enterprises
ever since. At different times he
was a member of the firms of Allen
& Co., Aldrich, Walker & Co.,
Walker, Allen & Co., and lately
with the big lumber and shipping
firm .of Allen & Robinson. He
took a prominent part in the early
development of the sugar planta
tions and shipping business here.
In 1865 he married the daughter
of James Robinson. His widow
survives him, but he has no chil
dren. His nearest other relative
here is his cousin, Col. W. F.
Allen, but he has other cousins liv
ing in New England, and leaves a
great many relatives by marriage
here through the Robinson family
Mr. Allen's friends have always
expected that his end would be
sudden as he has been a great suf
ferer from asthma aud this affected
his heart, but his death last night
was a great blow to them owing to
his apparent good health earlier in

Members of LcicMiiliirii Think Cnr
tcr linn Too Much lo Do.
Honolulu, May 12. It has been
learned that the secret of the real
opposition to the item of $20,000 as
brought into the House by Mr.
Harris in the form of a resolution
and referred to a committee of three,
lies in the fact that it is propnsetl
that the advertising of Hawaii aud
the consequent expenditure of the
money shall come under the direct
control of the Secretary of the Ter
ritory, should the amount be in
serted in the bill according to the
.terms of the resolution.
For some reason or other, this
does not seem to meet with the ap
proval of the majority of the mem
bers of the Lower House and the
matter was brought to light by the
amendment proposed on the part of
one of the representatives to have
the money in charge of a commis
sioner whose duty it would be to
attend to the wholr question of ad
vertising the country. In this way
it is thought by the members who
shy at the item on account of jts
ultimate destiny, that there will be
a strict attention to the business iu
hand and the advertising matter
that goes abroad will not cast the
shadows of any Government officer.
It is further thought by those
members who shied this morning
that the Secretary of the Territory
is really too busy with the onerous
duties of his office to be able to
superintend the work of advertising
the Islands, a matter which re
quires clear aud unbiased thought
and plenty ol it. Advertising Ha
waii is looked upon as a non-political
venture something that shall
represent the Islands aud the var
ious components that go to make
up the population of the country,
just as they are.
The native members are afraid of
a continuation of the old methods,
such as those which were flaunted
before the American public in 1893
by Iorriu A. Thurston, when it
was considered, perhaps conscien
tiously, that the way to attract
tourists was by having the hula
danced iu public by native women
with scant raiment. They have
had enough of this kind of thing
and they want to be sure before ap
propriating any money that there
will be at the head of affairs, a man
or men who will represent Hawaii
as it is instead of magnifying the
bad and minimizing the good.
A proposition was advanced this
morning by one of the members of
the House to the effect that there
be one each chosen from the Cham
ber of Commerce, the Merchants'
Association and the Builders and
Traders' Exchange, subject to the
approval of the Governor, who
shall act as a tourist committee
into whose hands the money appro
priated by the Legislature shall be
paid, this committee to attend to
all of the work of advertising of
Hawaii. It is presumed that this
committee will serve without com
pensation, since it is to the advan
tage of the merchants and others
doing busines iu the Territory that
there shall be an influx of tourists
from the Mainland. The member
states that he would rather trust to
the disinterestedly interested dis
crimination of three business men
than the interested interesteduess
of a very busy official.

Time and Money. Sickness
causes a loss of both time aud
money. You lose the time and
have the expense of medical atten
dance, entailing a double loss. This
can be avoided by using some re
liable remedy at the first stage of
the sickness. The purchase of a
bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy often
proves a profitable investment, for,
by its use at the first appearance of
of any uuusal looseness of the bow
els, a severe attack or" diarrhoea or
dysentery may be averted, that
might otherwise compel a week's
cessation from labor. Every house
hold should have a bottle at hand.
It never fails and is pleasant to take.
Get it to day. It may save a life.
