S. S. FAXSON.
Home Buying is
Beneficial to All
(I'roni Thursday Advertiser.)
Ono of tho two able papers-lead at
tho "Homo Huying" mass meeting-last
night was contributed by S. S. I'a&sou.
It is worth careful rending nnd 'is hero
given iu full. Mr. l'nson said:
Tho subject of "Home Huying" or
mirchnsluir from local merchants is a
mutter which should bo of vital
est to etcry ono in this Territory, es
pccially to those who have some
for our country und dosirp to see
It is most natural for people to say
when Homo Hujing is mentioned; "Oh.
that is a subject for" the merchants. ''
If thoro aro.any here whb cling to this
idea, please allow lis to ask them to
shoulder their sharo of H10 responsibil

be.i Jinny cities point with prJdn to
their beautiful retail stores
should be able to do tho same, lint
it is impossible to do so without thu
cooperation of cuih and etuiy icsideut
of this city.
The Honolulu of today is .quito dif
fcront from what it was even lito
years ago. Old methods have been,
and should be, ubulished, us tve must
keep abreast of the times, if we would
succeed in making our city what it
should be. Kor many years a businers
jealousy existed among the merchant1)
of Honolulu, but this condition is rap
In considering this subject, our
minds naturally turn toward the general
merchandise line. This being tho
case, wo will tako tip this phase of tho'
question first: '
I would first diviilo mainland catalogue
houses into two classes, Vir.:
those issued liy legitimatu business
houses nnd those issued by houses
which I do not consider such. Xo doubt
tho latter part of that statement appears
to bo strong language; however,
1 want to ay thut 1 do not consider
tueh houses as Scars, Itoebuck & Co.,
Montgomery, Ward & I'ouipauy, tho
Cash Huycr's' Union nnd ninny others
of the same class throughout the mainland,
legitimate business houses and
my reason is simply this a customer
can not possibly see what he isMiuyiug
until he purchases tho article and pays
for tho same.
Tho uboto mentioned houses are located
in Chicago, and they absolutely
refuse to' sell any goods iu their stores
and will not allow tho public, admittance.
They sell by mail order only.
Then we liavo tho other class of business
houses such as the Hmporiuin, The
White House, Shrote S. Co., of San
Prnncisco; Jieieri Crank, ot Portland,
Oregon; John Wnnaninker, of Philndel
phin; Tiffany & Co., of Xew York, nnd
hundreds more iu different parts of tlio
mainland who issue catalogs 'nnd ills-tribute
them in various ways.
Doing Local Business.
Theso catalogs do get a lot of business
from our Territory, especially in
tho dry goods mid jewelry hues.
