EVENING BULLETIN, HONOLULU, T, 11., TllUItaDAY, JAN. 7, 1909.
THE OTHER DAY when an Elderly Gentleman backed me up agakit the comer oigar itore and enquired if I was the "OPPORTUNITY" Mn. I admitted the soft impeach
ment and alio smiled widely. The E. 0, grabbed me by the coit lapel and delivered himself to this, effect: "There never was a gold mine. There isn't one today. There
never was a cent made in any kind of mining. The only reason a gold mine is called . gold mine is because people are foolish enough to dump their good gpld into it They
never get any out. And as often at. not there's no mine at all. He knew. He had invested in mining stock once. The thing was a fake, of course. No more mining stook for
him. Not in a thousand years." . - ,
Now, wouldn't that upper-cut yout Where his Nibs thought the world's present supply of gold oame from, gets me. Perhaps he thought it all came from Bishop's
Bank. The E. 0., nevertheless, is representative of a class of people who swallow the bait of any fly-by-night fakir, or wildcatter who peddles out cheap stock and promises the
earth, or at least a thousand dollars for every one put in. His proposition may be thewildesi kindof "-Wildcat," his roseate statements entirely unsupported, his "mine" a pipe
dream, and he himself belong in jail, but if his stuff is only oheap enough a cent or two' a share they will buy it Suoh people are not investors they are "suckers" buying
experienoe. But they hurt legitimate mining because ever afterwards they will keep on' telling how they "invested" in mining and lost their monsy.
With regard to the Elderly Gentleman, I steered him along to my Offloe, showed him ore specimens, photos, ohartsmaps, Government Reports, and statements of Honolulu
people who have visited the "MAYFLOWER." He revised his conviction about gold mining .to the extent that there was, at least, one gold mine, and that we owned it. Before
he flew, he broke-in for 1000 Shares. Other mining stocks and other Mayflowers can fce bought at leM'irices, but our Mayflower is the Mayflower Quartz & Channel Mining Co.
and the price is 25 Centra Share. Drive a tack in that fact.
Yes, our "MAYFLOWER" is the real thing, with assurances attached. Buy the Stock at 25 Cents. You're missing a trick if you don't. Be brisk and get in your order.
Buy it. It's a brilliant buy. BUY "MAYFLOWER" STOCK. BUY IT NOW!

Tho Mayor's refusal to rcrognlzo

that tho results ot prohibition, ns Il
lustrated In our country, aro wholly
disastrous nnd that nothing good Is
to ho gnlnod by tho further extension
of that doctrine. "All women In tho

CausliiB, while discussing tho wavo
of prohibition that has swopt over

"Wo must look nt results. Tho

"I have changed my mind about
