TO CURTAIL CREDIT.
Doubtless the dull limes are to
thank for the influential movement
just set on foot for the abatement of
the credit system. When the pipes
of prosperity sounded loud in the
land, the newspapers occasional! at
tacked the credit system of Hono
lulu, but they never tackled a more
unresponsive subject. Now, how
ever, when profits have diminished
owing to decreased sales fiom hard
times, the business community can
not afford to carry the amount of bad
debts on their books which once they
allowed as a mere incident of trade.
Ttiere was no use in individuals at
tempting to kick against what the
notice of to-day's meeting called
"the old timeworu quarterly payment
system." Organization to secure mut
ual adherence to a monthly credit basis
was the only remedy, and now the
preliminaries for organization have
been auspiciously inaugurated. It is
to be hoped that the organization will
go a step further than the objects
mentioned at the preliminary meet
ing, and do something for the promo
tion of the cash system. At present
many business people rather discour
age than encourage the payment of
cash, seemingly from the notion that
credit holds regular custom. There
is ceitainiy no encouragement to peo
ple's paying cash on delivery over
the counter, when the dealer is com
pelled by the presence of credit cus
tomers to make credit pi ices to the
cash buyer. Some dealers do en
coinage cash 011 delivery at bouses
by making a substantial discount to
the customer. If, as the callers
of the late meeting truly say, quar
terly credit has engendeied an extra
vagant mode 'of living, it is propor
tionately true that monthly credit
does not stimulate economy. Let
the goal of the mercantile guild be a
cash basis, and the results will be
only good to the whole community.
In your report of the interviews
with the Collector General of Cus
toms, and his Deputy, in yesterday's
ishtie, I notice some vaiiutious from
fact no doubt unintentional on their
parts, which should be corrected,
Mr, Boaidman is made to say that
there was "proof of witnesses that
the people (defendants) had landed
in an irregular way." There was no
evidence as to how or where they
lauded, or whether they had or had
not been born and always lived on
Maui. Mr. B. further refers to a
capture of opium made by Mr. Chil
lingworth, Deputy Sheriff of Maui,
No mention of such capture was
made on the trial. Both gentlemen
refer to the trial as a preliminary
examination, where the duty of the
Judge was to commit defendants for
trial before a jury. Such was not
the fact. The defendants were on
trial, and the Judge was obliged to
And tlieui either guilty or not guilty.
He was silting in the capacity of a
trial judge and jury not as an ex
nmjning uiagistiate. The opinions
of those learned laymen upon the
law of evidence, will no doubt bo
appreciated, at their full value, by
the legal profession. Mr. Boardinun
ttstilied on the trial, when called to
identify the contents of a box as be
ing opium, that he had "handled a
great deal of opium." That was no
doubt title, but the wonder is that
he and his chief now know so little
about the law pertaining to opium'
and its importation. Let's see, what
is that old adage about the cobbler
sticking to his lust?

AGAINST LONG CREDIT!
Unnllil) Instead or 0,unrterly Pay.
A representative meetiug of mer
chants this forenoon took steps to
form a permanent association for
mutual protection and for effecting
a change from quarterly to monthly
The meeting was held 111 the room
of the Chamber of Commerce. There
were not enough chairs for all who
attended. Mr. T. Rain Walker was
elected chairman, and Mr. Geo. F.
Caslle secretary, with them being
present Messrs. W. W. Hall, J.G.
Spencer, C. O. Berger, C. M. Cooke,
G. W. Smith, M. A. Gousalves, L.

G. E. Boardman, C. J. Waller, W.
W. Wright and H. von Holt.
Mr. II. Davis read a paper on the
objects of the proposed organization.
Messrs Waller and Lewis were
asked to give their views on the prob
able results of a change from the
quaiterly to the monthly system of
rendering accounts, and they made
Mr. T. J. King moved, seconded
by Mr. Castle, and it was carried,
that an oigani.atiou be formed in
accordance with the paper read.
Mr. Hall spoke of discussions had
at different times in the Chamber of
Commerce of the proposition to adopt
monthly collections, but an effort to
accomplish the object by mutual con
sent bad failed. The organization
proposed, witli the obligation of
members to report bad bills, would
prevent people running up accounts,
one after another, iu different stores
in one line. It would also be a valu
able means of looking up the finan
cial standing of strangers. The pro
tective association plan woiked well
in other cities, notably iu San Frau
ciaco. The chairman in closing a few re
marks called for information from
any who, might have had experience
of the working of such organizations
Mr. T. J. King was connected with
one in Oakland, California, and testi
fied to its successful working.
Mr. Davis said the 01 ionization
was nol intended to dictale to any
body as to fit subjects for getting
It was decided on motion to elect
a committee of five to draw up a
scheme of organization and leport.
The following names were put in
nomination ; T. J. King, W. W. Hall,
G. W. Smith, T. F. Lansing, H.
Davis, F. AI. Swanzy and J. F.
Mr. Swanzy at this stage stated
that he was at a complete loss to
know what the committee was expect
ed to do.
Mr. Hall said that was for the
meeting to say.
Mr. Swanzy What I may be al
lowed to ask is, what arc we here
Mr. Hall gave an explanation of
the purpose of the meeting, adding
that he supposed it was mainly fur
the benefit of the retail trade.
Mr. Davis said tho proposed or
ganizatiou would' enable its members
to know about a man's credit.
Mr. Swanzy was in favor of any
system thai would do away with the
rotten credit system that had long
been iu vogue in Honolulu, but he
did not think any system of boycot
ting would be a success. Pei haps
the intention was to start a little
Mr. K. C. Maofarlane agreed
largely with the remarks of Mr.
Swanzy. He had thought the object
of the meeting was to change the
ei edit from quarterly to monthly.
Mr. Castle thought there was
nothing in the paper read about boy
cotting. The main object was to
change the miserable credit system
from three months to one month.
The chairman said there was noth
ing before the meeting except the
nominations. He regretted that the
few piovious speakers had not spoken
before the passage of the first motion.
However, the committee to be elected
could turn the remarks just heard to
good account. He mentioned some
of the functions of the Trade Pro
tective Association of England for
the further benefit of the committee.
Mr, Swanzy was glad to have been
enlightened by those who had given
explanations, us he could now see
the utility ot the proposed organization.
The balloting resulted in the elec
tion of tho following committee:
Messrs. Swanzy, Hall, King, Davis
On motion the meeting adjourned
subject to the call of the chairman of
committee on organization.
THE SCOTCH YACHT.
The city front was crowded vester-
day afternoon to witness a trial of the
new Scotch yacht. At'J:30 o'clock the
yacht Hclene left her mooring and
went cruising in the bay. awaiting
the stranger. Ten minutes later the
yacht Hawaii the premier of local
yachts came out, followed by tlie
new yacht. Then off the squadron
went. The Hclene had" a stait of
about twenty -five yards and the Ha
waii five. The stranger with two
jibs sailed out from the Fishmarket
wharf after the Hawaii. In the open
water she raised her mainsail, in
creasing her speed. At the light
house she overtook the Hclene and
the flotilla went out the passage side
by side. Fassing the bell buoy the
Helcne was forging ahead, while the
Hawaii was lagging. Off Waikiki a
tack was made for home, the Hclene
still leading. At the can buoy the
Hclene ran to the Kwa side of the
channel and in tacking to leeward
she lost her position, the Scotch
yacht crosssing her bow. Making
some very (puck tacks the stranger
came in first. She ran up to the
Kinau wharf and slewed round, mak
ing for the Marine Railway. Near
the tugboat wharf she made a beauti
ful tack round a buoy, causing a
cheer. When the yacht was passing
the British ship Benmore W. W.'
Hall, who was on the yacht, proposed
three cheers for the Benmore which
were given by the yacht's people.
The sailors on the Benmore responded
with three rousing hurrahs, and the
cheers were acknowledged by Judge
Dole, who was on the yacht. The
now yacht crossed the bow of the
Hclene near the O. S. S. dock and
the cheering was deafening.
Mr. W. L. Wilcox handled the
tiller of the new yacht, while Fred.
Whitney maneuvered the Helene.
Hon. W. G. Irwin, who was on the
Helene, maintained that they led all
the way and off Waikiki they crossed
the new yacht's bow and dipped
their colors. W. L. Wilcox said that
they had a board fastened on the
keel of tho new yacht, to keep her
fiom walking away from tho others!
Those on the cutter said they
went farther than the Hawaii and
tlelenc, and this is confirmed by Dr.
Trousseau and Dr. Henri McGrew,
who were in a steam launch follow
ing the yachts.
Wong Kwai was appointed guar
dian over C. Cun Lai and C. Ctin
Hin, minor children of the late C.
Alee, Chinese Coiiiincicial Agent, 03'
Judge Dole, 3'esterday, under sepa
rate bonds of 1000 in each case.
Judge Dole also heard the motion
for a new trial in the famous pine
apple case of P. G. C.unarinos vs.
Jno. Kidwell. The motion was
denied. F. M. Hatch, who appeared
for defendant, noted an exception to
the ruling of the Court.
To-day Judge Bickertou overruled
the motion for a new trial in the case
of B. Kaaua vs. J. Mima. W. C.
Achi for plaintiff; F. M. Hatch for
Dogs upiooted tho body of a Jap
anese, bearing evidence of having
been murdered, at Olowalu, Maui,
last Sunday. The body was identi
fied as that of a laborer named Yam
am.Ho Ynzo, and on examination a
bullet hole in the back was revealed.
Two Japanese are under arrest under
suspicion of being the murderers.

Here is an incident from the South
-Mississippi, written in April, 1890,
j Ust after the Grippe had visited that
country. " I am a farmer, one of
fhose who have to rise early and
work late. At the beginning of last
Winter I was on a ti ip to the City
of Vicksburg, Miss.fWlietc I gotwell
drenched iu a shower of rain. I
went home and wnssoon after seized
with a dry, hacking cough. This
grew worse every day, ttntil I had
to seek relief. I consulted Dr. Dixon
who has since died, and he told me
to get a bottle of Boschee's German
Syrup. Meantime my cough grew
worse and worse and then thcGrippe
came along and I caught that also
very severely. My condition then
compelled me to do something. I
got two bottles of German Syrup. I
began using them, and before taking
much of the second bottle, I was
entirely clear of tin Cough that had
hung to me so Ion;,, the Grippe, and
all its bad effects. 1 felt tip-top and
have felt that way ever since."
