Arguments In Fa?or of Organization
of Merchants of Honolulu.
Business Mem GIto Their Views by Request-Planting
Is Not tbe Only Interest
Example ot Sao Francisco.
.Something In lino with tho march of
Honolulu to commerclnl greatness,
which tho Bulletin has begun the ad
vocacy of, Is tho matter of organization
of tho purely mercantile Interests for
mutual benefit. To promote this ob
ject nothing can bo better than tho
publication of tho views of merchants
John CI. Hothwcll, manager of W.
C. Poncock & Co., Ltd., being known to
lmvo given somo thought to tho mat
ter, was asked to allow tho public the
bonoflt of his cogitations. Mr. Iloth
wcll readily responded to tho follow
"Wo expect before very long to have
tenitortnl homo rule, with u system of
municipal government. In view of this
expectation, It seems an appropriate
time to agitato for organization of tho
merchants. Tho Idea is that it is nc
jpssary for self-protection. It would
secure recognition of tho views of tho
purely mercantile clement upon mat
ters relating to the welfare nnd pros
perity ot tho community. Such an or
ganization would net on similar lines
to thoso pursued by tho district Im
provement leagues now Inaugurated.
"I was very much Impressed with the
lnllucnco capablo of being exercised by
such an organization, while In San
Francisco lately I attended the
annual dinner of tho Merchants'
Association. Among several disting
uished speakers on tho occasion were
the presidents of tho two universities,
who delivered very interesting nd
drcsscs. Their remarks on thu Import
ant of special mercantile education
were of great value."
Mr. Itothwell does not ndvocuto hasto
In tho movement. Before stops are
taken for organization lie would like to
have full data from San Francisco for
guidance In formulating the basis of
E. A. Mclucrny, senior partner In
tho business established by his late fa
ther about forty years ago, is In favor
ot tho project.
"I think such an organization as you
mpntlim." Mr. Mclucrny said to a re
porter, "Is necessary and would bo of
croat ndvantngo to tho smaller mer
chants. Whllo tho Cnnmbcr of Com
merco has unuoubtcdly done much for
tho country, there nro u gicat many
matters of vital Importance to retail
traders which that body scarcely takes
any cognlzanco of. A Merchants' Pro
tective Association, or whatever It
might bo called, would certainly supply
a want thnt Is distinctly felt by tho
H. E. Mclntyro, of 11. May & Co.,
Ltd., said: "I think It would bo a good
thing, but you can't get tho business
men hero to hold together. Vou re
member tho fizzle of tho thirty days'
credit scheme. Nothing but plague or
fires, which will make them poorer,
can keep our merchants together. Still,
I bolleve It would bo tho right thing If
It could bo done. They have It down
to n fine thing In San Francisco."
W. W. Hall, of K. O. Hall & Son,
Ltd., objects to tho multiplying ot or
LMinlzailonB. "Tho Chamber of Com
merce," Mr. Hall said, "Is supposed to
represent every firm In town. They
nro asked to Join," ho answered to a
statement that somo complaints of
excluslvencss ngnlnst that body had
leen heard. "There wuk a committee
bent around lately to Increaso the mem
bership, and about n dozen now mem
bers havo been elected as tho result."
Regarding n prevalent feeling that
the planters dominated the Chamber,
Mr. Hall said that about nil business
men now owned sugar stock, and every
member of tho Chamber could get n
hearing for any matter that lio desired
to call to tho attention of that body.
deo. W. Smith, president of Benson,
Smith & Co., Ltd., when asked for his
opinion, said: "I suppose you mean
a Board of Trade In fact. I am very
much In favor of such an organization,
and . ve been so for moro thnn n year.
It Is badly needed In Honolulu, and 1
should give tho movement tho moat
Fred. Lewis, ot Lewis & Co., had not
given tho matter any thought and
would not caro to glvo any opinion as
yot. The firm belonged to tho unam
ber of Commerce. Still ho believed
that tho proposed organization ought
. to bo useful. "It would bo a good thing
to bring tho merchants together," Mr.
Kd. Lewis, brother nnd partner ot
tho merchant Just quoted, spoke hearti
ly In favor of tho proposition. He
thought It was Just what was needed
at tho present time.

HEALTH BOARD MEETING
Yarions Hatters of Importance Trans
Communication From Kauai Citizens Discus
sion on Street Cars Final Action In Hllo
Matter Health Agents Reported.
At tho regular meeting of the Board
of Health yesterday afternoon there
wcro present tho following: President
Wood, F. M. Hatch, Geo. W. Smith, F.
J. Lowrcy and Dr. Emerson of the
Board; President Dole and Minister
The first business brought up was the
matter of tho application of W. O. Ir
win & Co. for n permit to havo tho
Santiago, W. H. DImond and Maunn
Ala haul up to within six feet of va
rious wharves for tho purpose of dis
charging machinery and the like in
order that tho grain and hay beneath
this can be placed In clean vessels In
tho stream. President Wood stated
that this had been allowed In tho enso
of tho Blocmfontcln ho himself hav
ing taken the responsibility. Tho
Board decided to allow the threo ves
sels to discharge as asked, making It
as n provision thnt they lengthen their
cables nt night nnd move fifteen feet
from their respective wharves.
A communication from H. L. Scott
asking that ho bo given the right to
uho tho fences In Chinatown now being
put up by tho Board of Health for ad
vertising purposes, guaranteeing to
glvo the Board fifty per cent of what
ho should make, was acted on unfavor
ably. A communication from Health Agent
Lydcckcr announced thnt tho 'busses
of tho city had been placed in a sani
tary condition and could now bo safe
ly allowed to run.
Dlsscusslon on tills matter brought
up the question of the street cars.
President Wood was of tho opinion
thnt when theso were put In sanitary
condition they should bo allowed to
run. He explained that Manager Pain
had been seen by agents ot the Board
of Health relative, to tho matter, but no
satisfaction had been secured. Dur
ing tho morning Secretary Wilcox had
received a communication from Mr.
Pain asking that ho bo given tho va
rious actions tho Board had taken re
garding tho street cars.
President Dole "How are you going
to keep tho cars clean after they havo
onco been cleaned?"
Mr. Hatch "That Is very simple.
Have them cleaned onco a day."
President Dole "I don't think tho
Board should worry about tho street
cars. I think It would bo a good thing
to havo them stop running for a while.
This would keep In tho outer districts
undesirable people who now nro con
tented to remain there rather than
walk. If tho street car people do not
consider It necessary to keep their cars
clean tho Board has certainly dono its
duty. 1 do not bellovo tho compnny
wishes to take tho troublo to follow out
tho regulations of tho Board."

placing this over u nail on tho wall,
bent his knees under and deliberately
strangled himself to denth. Had ho
