There is a romarknbly cheerful
loue pervading tho iiuuucial tirti
lo of tho Foroign and Colonial
Importer and British Trade Ho
Wow, London, of latest date to
Sand. It represents trndo as con
tinuing to expand and the domand
for money to inoroase. Tho im
provement in trado is chiefly duo
to tho great prosperity of tho
JSast and also of the Continent.
India is having more now rail
ways built thau nt any ono timo
previously. In this connection
ibo articlo says, "How iuadoquato
iaa beon tho lailway mileage in
India in tho past may bo gathered
from tho fact that tho United
States, with a population only
about one-fourth .of that of India,
lius a railway mileage approxim
ately four times as great."
Vith tho expansion of trado thoro
i also noted ohoapnoss of money,
for -which some of tho causes are
given. For instance, eleven and
half million dollars of tho Gov
trnmont's floating debt was paid
tho other dny, setting in circula
tion that largo amount from tho
.custody of tlio Bank of England.
Thoro was a tightnobs for a week,
when mouoy had to be borrowed
from tho same bank at two per
acnt., owing to monthly settle
jBOiits for Juno and tho issue of a
3arge number of now companies.
Dividends paid on the funds early
in July, however, eased tlio money
suarkot. As an indication that
wimey is expooted to remain ab
normally cheap for a long timo to

placing of a milliou of treasury
bills by tho Government, in ro

In ro tho editorial entitled
"Japan "War and Religion" in tho
Advortisor of yesterday morning,
tho Bulletin has received a com
munication from ono of tho most
influential Japanese business men
of Honolulu, in which ho douies
all of tho statomonts mado in tho
morning papor. In Japan, ho
says, in Biibstauce, the porcontago
of tho inhabitants who havo om
braced Christianity is so very
small as to bo insignificant. "No
one, practically, of tho moro intel
ligent claBB," says ho, "havo in
any way thrown aside tho tenets
of Buddhism. Tho recruits aro
from among tho lowest orders; tho
coolie olomout." Those mon ho as
sorts, protend to ombraco tho
moro modom religion from pure
ly merconary motives. They aro
no moro Christians at heart than
I boforo thoy hoard of tho Christ.
Hie one reason, he maintains,
why OhriB'ianity is not well re
ceived in Dai Nippon, is because
of tho vast number of profligates
who uso that religion as a cloak
to conceal their present oiul to ox j
cuso their past misdeeds. Thoro
can bo no question of reformation
amongst this class. Thoy do not
and novor did desire to roform. '
By a protonso of conversion from
the oldor faiths an opportunity
is given them to secure an
English oducation for n merely
nominal sum. Monetary advant
ages aro arrived at and in various
ways tho hypocritical convert ob
tains what he sought when ho
claimed or confessed conversion.
Tho gontloman is a man of un
doubted business and social in
tegrity, and is in direct touch
with members of the Imperial
Japanese ministry. Haviug givon
tho mattor much study and liaving
a very extensive knowledge of his
own country his statements are
without doubt based upon fact.
Tho correspondent speaks further
of tho misleading reports sent to
tho Homo Board by missionaries,
deploros buck action and ut tho
eauio time expresses a deep sym
pathy for tho wearisome efforts
mado by tkom and wkick kavo
proven fruitless. Commercial in
terests ami a desire to advance in
various ways, caused by tko know
ledge gained from the foreign
mercantile class, are tho causes of
Japan's forward movement. Re
ligion, ho says, has had nothing
whatever to do with it.

A dispatch of August 3 from
Seattle reports ono of tho series of
sales ut auction, in different
places, of tho proporty of the

to tho reorganization of the

Tho report states that Special

sale, said that ho would first offer

" YOUR HOUSE IS ON
This may be the warning
cry to you some night.
-Whether it refers to your store,
factory, mill, office, or resi
dence, it means that all of your
valuable account books, secu
rities, deeds, insurance policies,
notes, receipts, mortgages, etc.,
will be destroyed if not pro
tected by a fire-proof safe.
Can you afford to run this
hazardous risk? The loss of
an insurance policy alone in
nine cases out of ten would
cause you endless trouble and
expense in going to law to se
cure a settlement, and then
your chances of coming to a
satisfactory adjustment with
the insurance company would
indeed be very slim. It is a
duty that you owe to your
business, to your family and
to yourself to protect these
things against both fire and
thieves. That old tin box or
drawer in which you have
been in the habit of keeping
your papers, would be of no
service whatever in case of

four hundred have already
