THE ARABIC ARRIVED
Off port at 1 i. m. and was imme
diately boarded by Pilot Babcock,
Dr. Henri McGrew and Custom
House Officer Mom". The Aiabic
has 1,400 souls on bonvd; there are
COO male Chinese, 17 women and 15
children for this port, and about GOO
merchants and traders for San Fran
cisco. Dr. McGrew reports no sickness
on board at present hut there lias been
one death from plcuro-pneumonia.
Mr. Morrill, actiug under instruc
tions from the Collector General of
Customs, informed the captain of
tho Arabic that he would only be
permitted to land twenty-five Chi
nese. Mr. Pflugcr, of the firm of
Messis Ilackfeld & Co., went off to
the Arabic in the Kapiolani.
The latest information is that the
Chinese are to be permitted to land
and that the Arabic will sail at nine
o'clock to-morrow morning.
The City of Pckin is not coming
THE P. M. S. S. CO.
Wo regret to announce that Messrs
Ilackfeld & Co. , agents of the Paci
fic M,txl S. S. Co., have received in
structions from San Francisco and
New York to take neither freight nor
passengers at this port for shipment
to San Francisco. The same step
has been taken in America and no
passengers or freight will bo received
hero, by the P. M. S, S. Co.'s boats,
from San Francisco. Their steamers
will call here as UBual, taking and
bringing mails. They will also con
vey freight and passengers to and
from the Colonies, Messrs Ilackfeld
& Co. arc not aware of the reasons
that have led to these orders being
issued, but are merely obeying their
instructions. They will, in the
meantime, ship their sugar to the
Coast by sailing vessels.
THE MUTUAL TELEPHONE CO.
Met this morning at ten o'clock,
1980 shares being represented.
Mr. Jaeger, tho secretary, read a
letter from tho Hawaiian Bell Co.,
forwarding the resolution which was
published in yesterday's BuuuriN
The letter was icccivctl with cries-
of " war."
Mr. A. J. Cartwright said that
neatly two months ago, actuated by
an earnest desire to serve all who
were interested in telephones, Mr.
W. G. Irwin and jMr. II. Water
house wcro appointed to confer with
representatives from the II. II. Co.
about amalgamation. They made
no propositions and no demands.
The reply of the 11. II. Co. had been
read and discussed bcfoic. They
talked now of concessions but none
were asked or granted. Wo only
ask for cheap telephones and ask
them to guarantee to" fix the rates
for a certain time. Wc lcfuscd the
25 per cent, advance on our stock,
wc don't want it. If wc sought to
make money, as Mr. W. O. Smith
had stated, wc wouUl have taken
that offer and not tried to prevent
them from raising the rates. Wc
are honest and don't want to squeeze
what we can from the public. Mr.
Cecil Brown has stated that I own
the property. It has been paid for
by our company's money and will be
transferred at any moment. It was
placed in my name to facilitate the
assessment of lost values through
the widening of Merchant streets.
Mr. Widcmann said that when he
read the Butlctin he intended to
make no reply, to what seemed to be
a personal attack upon himself,
made by the II. B. Co. lie could
carry it all on his back better
than they could pull him down.
He would not have gone into the
company but to obtain cheap tele
phones and not make money. They
allege the value of their stock at
SGO,000 which, I thick, is a purely
imaginary value. Mr. Bcrger and I
started that company and corned it
through successfully. Their actual
paid up capital was $G,000, of which
the Honolulu shareholders paid S4,
900. The II. B. Co. furnished an
invoice for SI, 200 for which the'
received 510 shares. When I left
the company their earnings, over
and above the running expenses that
had been paid, were S83,000. lie
would bet that they had not spent
827,000 since as only a few new in
struments had been put up. Ihcre
is no reason why our 830,000 capital
should not increase and have the
same prosperity as the II. B. Co.
Mr.Cassidy is the electrician of the
II. B. Co. I am not an electrician,
but the bulk of our instruments are
the same as those of the II. B. Co.
Wc have a few of another make, one
of which I lent to Dr. McKibbin who
required a second, being a plrysi
cian, and could not get one from the
II. B. Co. for four months. Our
electrician said that M Cassidy
wouldn't undeistand it as there was
something new in it, and he didn't,
although he examined it for two and
a half hours. These new instru
ments were made specially by a firm
who wanted to secure our trade.
The cables I purchased are in con
stant use in the Eastern States of
America. How long they wi'l last I
cannot tell, but the Pateison cable
has not yet been introduced to San
Francisco. 4 Mr. Cassidy assumes to
talk of ouv property which he has
riot seen; the cables are not un
packed and the key to open the
cases of insti oments is in my safe.
On motion of Mr. Cartwright,
seconded by Mr. J. II. Paty, the
following resolutions were passed
Resolved. That the Board of
Directors bo instructed to give notice
to the Minister of the Interior, in
confoimity witli the provisions of
tho chatter, that this Company in
tends to increase its capital stock to
50,000 in all.
Resolved. That the Board of
Directors, in due time, open sub
scription lists for the new stock to
be issued,, and issue the same when
On motion of Mr. Dayton it was
Resolved. That the Directors bo
insUucted to go on with the work as
fast as possible.
The meeting then adjourned sine
LIBRARY AND READING
A joint meeting of tho Board of
Trustees nnd the Entertainment
Committee, of tho Honolulu' Library
and Reading Room Association was
held yesterday afternoon, at tho
J Reading Room.
Mr. Marques having tcndeicd his
losignatiou as Chairman of tho En
tertainment Committee and Member
of the Board of Trustees, the meet
ing confined its attention to the con
sideration of Mr. Marques' resigna
tion. Tho feeling of all present was
that Mr. Marques' services had been
invaluable to the Association, par
ticularly in conjunction with tho
arrangements for the coming Fair,
that his services could not be dis
pensed with, and that he should bo
asked to reconsider his decision and
withdraw his resignation.
A committee, consisting of Mr.
Cartwright, Dr. Hyde and Mr. Par
melee, was appoiirtcd to convey to
Mr. Marques the wish of tho meet
ing, and the following resolution was
unanimously adopted: "That the
committee be instructed to assure
Mr. Marques of the unabated con
fidence of the Board of Directors in
his individual management of the
arrangements for the fair ; also that'
of tho Entertainment Committee, to
whom the matter was especially as
signed ; and that we earnestly re
quest him to withdraw his resigna
tion, with the assurance that we
deeply regret any misunderstanding
should have given seeming occasion
for any such action."
The meeting then adjourned.
