PROTECT YOUR FAMILIES.
It is the duty of every man, married
or single, to insure his life. If mar
ried he lias his wife and family to
provide for, and every unmarried
man has some, relative or friend need
ing assistance. How much benefit
and relief from poverty can lie as
sured, to those who survive us. by
the weekly expenditure of one or
two dollars in an insurance policjr.
The thirty ninth annual report of the
New York Life Insurance Company
has just been issued, and our readers
should carefully read the following
extract from the Commercial World
and IT. 8. Exporter.
"The report shows cash assets of
$55,5-12,00.72, an increase of S-l,-7-12,505,90;
and a divisible surplus
at four per cent, of 5,002,511.17,
an increase of 853,072.38, By the
New York State standard of four and
a half per cent, the surplus would
exceed 10,000,000. The revenue
for the year was S13, 001,350.06, an
increase of SI, 710, 702. 87. The
amount paid in dcatli claims was
2,203,092.20, and the total dis
bursements to policy holders were
0,099,390.40. The investments arc
of the most desirable character,
chiefly consisting of United States
.and other first-class stocks 'and
bonds, the market value of which in
excess of cost is 2,005,052.83.
During the year the amount returned
to Tontine policy holders was 072,
215.12, and the Tontine fund aggre
gated 2,230,000.08. The number
of policies issued during the year
was 15,501, covering insurance of
52,735,501, an increase of 3,383 in
the number of policies and 11,-110,0-1-1
in the amount of insurance.
The whole number of policies in
force on the first of January, 188-1,
was 09,227, covering insurance to
the amount of 108,7-10,(M0. The
prudence with which investments
have been selected appears fiom the
fact that the excess of interest over
death losses was 1-10,771. CO.
Such an exhibit as Hie above
proves that the financial solidity of
the Company is secure against all
probable contingencies, and fully
justifies the public confidence which
has placed this in the front rank of
the most prosperous life insurance
institutions in tho country. The
management is characterized by such
prudence and sagacity, combined
with enterprise, liberality and
straightforward dealing as have ac
complished results that are scarcely
paralleled in the history of the life
insurance interest. Tho officers and
trustees are gentlemen of great experience-
in financial matters, of the
highest integrity and most prominent
standing, and their names arc an
ample guarantee that the important
trusts confided to their keeping will
be guarded with the most watchful
and jealous care."

pany is Mr. C. O. Bergcr.

Mr. J. Richardson gave evidence
that the plaintiff, with other Portu
guese, had been arrested for break
ing the Sabbath ; that bail was re
fused by the sheriff and the district
judge, lie offered 100 bail for six
men but it was refused because the
day was'Sunday. He had a message
from Mr. Dayton to bail them out.
Jose d" Aruda testified tnat lie
was in prison for two days and nights.
His wife and child were compelled to
go to a friend's house. He did not
work on Sundaj.
L. Kahlbaum offered bail which
was lcfused. Tho Portuguese were
excited and threatened to break
down the prison. He had been ar
rested for .shifting a flume on Sun
day. J. P. Kama, for the defence, tes
tified that lie was not present when
the men were locked up. lie was
going on the following Monday to
try the men but felt satisfied they
would not be there. Nothing was
said about sueing him if he did not
take bail, lie did not tell the sheriff
not to take bail, he only showed
him the law.
Judge Dickerton, in giving his
decision, said tho case was impor
tant as it affected the rights of all
citizens. He quoted from Chap. 50
of the Penal Code, sections 2, 5 and
0 pointing out the duties and discre
tions of a magistrate. There was
no law against taking bail on a Sun
day. The amount tendered was 40
in excess of the lines that could be
imposed, and if they had not ap
peared they could have been brought
before the Court and fined in addi
tion to losing their bail. A Govern
ment officer must not consider the
trouble to li'inisclf, he was paid to
take trouble and he must carry out
the law. He was satisfied that the
counsel for defendant would not
have acted in such a manner not
withstanding his argument. He (the
Judge) considered that a grave error
of judgment had been made and he
fined defendant 820 dnmages with

THE TV0 TELEPHONES.
EniTOit Bulletin : In common
with some other people, 1 cannot see
how it is possible for two telephone
companies to operate satisfactorily
in a small place like Honolulu.
Monopolies are said to be injurious
and competition beneficial. , Yes,
but even competition may be carried
to extremes, and then, somebody
gets hurt. How competition in tel
ephone wires in a small town is to
benefit anybody I do not perceive.
In fact, it appears to me that the
opposite effect must be the result.
Ono company has been in operation
for some time, and its wires and in
struments arc now in almost every
house that cares to liavo a telephone,
so that a second company has no
unoccupied field to work upon. The
houses that need, or will he willing
to pay for, two telephones, cannot

Honolulu) A man may patronize a
half dozen bakers, or butchers, or
milkmen, or grocers, to satisfy his
wants, and that without increasing
his cost of living; but lie cannot
patronize two telephone companies
without unnecessarily augmenting
his expenses. Then if sonic people
have connection only with one cen
tral and others with the other only,
it is easy to see the inconvenience
arising therefrom. If the first com
pany charged extortionate rates, 1
could understand tho public giving
their support to the opposition ; but
no reasonable objection has ever
been raised on that ground. Unless
I am under a false apprehension,
when the new company was first
projected the principal slock of the
old company was owned and con
trolled abroad, and the idea was to
have a company purely Hawaiian.
This was reasonable enough, and
public sympathy went with the new
venture. Since then things have
changed, and the .stock of the old
company is now owned by our own
people, and along with' this change
has come a change in the people's
enthusiasm for a new company.
In view of this altered condition
of things, and also keeping in mind
the disadvantage to the community
of the co-existence of two separate
telephonic systems, what would be
the most rational, wise and satis
factory thing for the two companies
to do? I am entirely ignorant of
the views and intentions of the com
panies themselves. But I have an
opinion of my own, and that opinion
is in accord with the expressed views
of several others: it is this, that it
would be best to amalgamate best
for the companies and best for the
general public. The first company
has its wires erected, its instruments
placed, and its system in operation ;
but has no central office of its own,
and the one it holds and occupies on
the tenure of a lease is in a dilapi
dated state. The second company
has land of its own in a good loca
tion, on which to erect offices, be
sides instruments and other ma
terial. By combining the property
and capital of the two companies
the deficiencies of eacli would be
supplied and one strong company
constituted. It appears to me that
such an arrangement should be sat
isfactory to tho shareholders of both
companies, and would undoubtedly
serve public convenience.
