work Is thoroughly nml IntelllKUitly

of the lumber jards was of Itself
enough to ouup the time of one well

Usson to be draw n from the disaster

The destruction of the splendid new
building of 13. O Hall & Sou this
morning Is a public calamlt) that
teemed almost Irreparable. The lire
was hardl) under control, howexer, be-
foro the progressive corporation lie'
Bin Its plans for a new building on
broider lines than the Itrst The pro
gressive spirit of the old (slabllshed
liuslnesH holies of the cltj ns well as
the new ones is not to lie overcome iiy
u little thing like a lire. Onl au
iruptlon of Punchbowl or a tidal wave
that will wipe out tho city can stay

business community gcncrullv Even
thin if there was nny one left they
would prohtbl) begin building a new

THE GALLIll) JADE.
The Advertiser this morning puli
llshes what purport to bo the record
of newspaper sales nt the Oahu rail
wa newsstand These figures are
given with n view to discrediting the
Ilulletln not a mw pastime
of the morning organ and elide ioi
to boost the Evening Eilm to n pusl
tloti lu the circulation schedule which
It cannot maintain
The figures glvin by the Advertiser j
are not. unfortunately, accompanied
b the usual oferlng o. Affidavit Pear
son. presumably because Lewis has no
connection with tills effort to mislead
the buslniss men of the city.
It Is well for the buslniss men to
remember that the Advertiser Is can
till not to publish that an emplovo of
, the Advertiser office controls the
Oahu railway newsstand from which
the figures are taken.
Tho Ilulletln Is prepared to prove
that the newsboy emplovcd to sell pa
pers on the train by this omplovo of
the Advertiser huir given especial at
tention to pushing the sale of the Star
to the direct disadvantage ot the Ilul
letln. that passengers on tho train
havo had to as); this newsboy employ
ed by an emplojo of the Advertiser If
ho had Bulletins, as this joung man lu
crjlng his newspapers made special
effort to secure sale for tho morning
organ's evening echo, the Star.
Tho Ilulletln Is aUo prepared to
provo that tho gentleman emploed
by the emplojo of the Advertiser to
run the Oahu railway newsstand has
sunt to tho Ilulletln office requesting
the management of this paper not to
issue so early In the afternoon, as me
newsbojs from this office get to the
early afternoon train Borne time lie
fore departure and thereby reduce tho
sale on tho train, presumably tho sale
of the Star, since this emplojo of an
emplojo of tho Advertiser appears to
havo no Interest In any other paper
than tho Advertiser's evening echo.
Theso facts tho Ilulletln can estab
lish, accompanied by an affidavit, as
the Advertiser apparently Iiuh a pen
chant for affidavits Among business
men, however, the word of tho Hut
letln has never been questioned
The Advertlsci has taken up tho
circulation question and It finds the
Ilulletln ready. 'Iho Advertiser
"claims" that It has "nearly three
tlmoB tho circulation of the ilulletln."
"Claim" Is good. "Nearly" is also
good. TIicbo words cover a multitude
of Bins This "claim" has been often
repeated, and as often has tho Ilulle
tln ouered to open Its books to a com
mittee of disinterested citizens. And
tho Advertiser has had nothing moio
Tho Advertiser being so ready to
publish tho figures bearing upon tho
circulation of the newspapers of HiIb
city, we commend tho figures of tho
Ilulletln street sales to Its attention:
Averago street sales per month
of tho Ilulletln for tho flvo
monthB ending July 31st 9,235
Street sales of tho Ilulletln for
the first four dajs of tho pres-
O w 'out month 1 1,9 18
Streot sales of the Ilulletln Mon
day, August Sth 540
How many of these street sales
have Interfered with the sale of pa
pers at the Oahu railway newsstand
controlled by an emplojo of tho Ad
vertiser, wo are unable to state.
Doubtless tho Advertiser can, as its
employe seems to object to tho wile of
the Ilulletln to pabtengcrs awaiting
Tho Ilulletln has proved itself nn
advertising medium superior to tho
Advertiser In every Instance whero
merchants havo taken tho tumble to
mako a Just comparison A Railing
dry goods merchant voluntarily stated
to tho Ilulletln management tlmt he
has secured better results from liU
advertising In the Ilulletln than from
nny other piper In the city.
Tho superiority of the Ilulletln bb
nn advertising medium Is first, be
muse It publishes the news and has
the circulation It holds Its advertis
ing apaio at a higher figure than tho
Advertiser, preferring tho smaller ad
at a higher price, thus 'giving more
spaco for reading matter and bitter
position for the advertiser
The Advertiser holds Its spico at a
low figure, and publlshis a mass of
stuff In lieu of news. In which the
business man's advertisement Is lost
No one reads the advertisements In
tho Advertiser, its advertising make
up Is nothing more or less than a pon
dermis collection of posters, and be
speaks a po!lc that dties not find en
dorsement from any capable new spa
per man or advertising agent.
Tho whole dllllcnlty with tho Ad
vertiser Is that It Is constantly coming
In contact with the ste-idlly growing
popularity of tho Ilulletln as a pro
gressive American newspaper and
thereb) becomes Impressed with Its
own unpopularity and debased stand
lug In the community. Tho shoe
pinches, lie nee the ponderous effort
of the organ to bolster Itself by quot
ing from the returns of newsstands
controlled by one of Its cmploves

As to the safe In the shipping de
partment, the tinkers nre not so sure.
It Is not a vcrj good one and It Is fear
ed that some ot the papers have been
kstrojed. However, it Is hoped that
the writing will be plain enough so
that It can be read.
Gangs oi men from tho Hawaiian
Electric and Mutual Telephone com
panies are at work today putting up
new poles on King street In place of
the ones that were burned. As soon
us this Is done, the wires will be strung
up ngaln and then tbe people In the
vicinity who have bceu forced to go a
block awaj todav to send a tclcpuouo
message, will he able to use their own
instruments once more.
People Vtlth cameras have been busy
all dnj taking pictures of the ruins
from all poslsblc points. The first man
on the scene was Frank Davey and he
succeeded in getting a Hue view of tho
fire, arriving as he did shortly after
the Are engines.
A number of mounted and foot police
have been stationed about the building
on Fort and King streets nil day keep
ing people from approaching too closo
to the building. Tho dangerous wall
on Port street that might fall on tho
appearance of n strong wind, will ho
torn down this afternoon. Mr, Hall
has alreadj made arrangements for
this part of the work. As soon as the
ruins are cool enough, men will be set
to work clearing away tho debris.
The work of the firemen this morn
ing goes to show that Honolulu has an
efficient department anil lire chief. The
men worked like Trojans and deserve
the greatest credit for the way they
protected the surrounding property. No
tren could have worked more willingly
oi with greater zeal, 1 he city has rea
son to bo proud of her lire laddies.
Tho Hobion Drug Company had a
narrow escape. Some of tho celluloid
and rubber goods In tho uper Btory
of Hie building cuught tire, and, had it
not bciii for the timely appearance of
one of tho clerks, tho llnmes would
surely havo spread. As It was, ho
put out tho lire nnd saved tho whole
place. Tho damagu Is estimated at
The Oolden Hullo liazaar calculates
Its loss at about $100.
