To prevent loss by crediting nnd collect

tcctlvo Union, vvhlcli is nn organization of tho
wholcsalo nnd retail merchants of tho District of
Columbia for mutual protection (against persons
who do not pay their debts.) Tho plan or opera
tion is as lollows: Members aro divided in two
classes participating and nonpartlcipating.
Tho participating members pay two dollars (S2)
annual dues and fifty conts (50c.) lor monthly
nnd special reports, but nothing for collections.
Tho nonpartlcipating mombcrs pay percentage
on collections, get no report, and aro not pro
tected by tho association. All members aro fur
nished with n form of circular letters, which
calls tho debtor's attention to his obligation (to
tho creditor) and tho necessity of his making
Eomo arrangement for settlement of samo within
a specified time. Should tho debtor fall to re
spond to first letter (which is known ns tho cred
itor's letter) in tho timo Btated, tho creditor will
send Eccond letter, (known ns tho association
letter, signed by tho manager,) informing tho
debtor that unless he settles in soma satisfactory
way within time mentioned in second letter his
name will bo placed on record ns being that of a
person unworthy of credit, and tho record fur
nished to members of said union monthly, In
order that ho may bo known to them and credit
denied him thereafter. Should n retnll merchant
bo found giving credit to parties that havo been
reported to him ns unworthy of same, tho said
retail merchant will bo roportedto the wholesale
merchants, that they mny know what risk thoy
take in giving credit to said retail merchant.

now in northern Euiopean waters, will visit
Lisbon very soon, in accordance with orders is
sued at the timo sho started from New York
with tho remains of Ericsson. The futuro
movements of tho Baltimoro aro as yet unde
termined, and sho goes to Lisbon simply because

signed to her. At tho Stato Department it was
said that tho Delegoa Bay Railway matter is
now the subject of arbitration at Bero, and
that it is hardly possible that any of the
countries concerned will resort to war-like
measures pending tho peaceful settlement of
tho questions at issue.
