WHKRR TREASURE IS SAFE.
Bow Mnssra. Jones Take Care of
Precious Documents and Valua
bles P. 0. Jouos and E. A. Jones, father
and son, aro associated in lh. Ha
waiian Safe Deposit and Investment
Company, with offices aud vaults at
408 Fort street. They provide safes
of various sizes for rent by the
mouth or year. Stock broking is
alo part of their busiuoss, as may
be seen by their advertisement, but
what the presont writing has to do
with chiefly is the safe deposit busi
ness. Thpro aro two rapacious vaults iu
tho company's offices. Ouo of thorn
contains two hundred and fifty-six
steel boxes of four different sizes.
Theso boxes range in sizo from 2tn.x
Sin. to Sin.xlOiu., all being 18in.
deep. Each box has two keys. The
company gives up both keys to tho j
porson routing a uox, yei nououy .

fore tho holder's key will unlock his i
box. Tho master key will not open
tho box of Itself, but the necessity of ,
its intervention prevents tampering .
with the box
by any unauthorized
person. Holders can take out the
tin boxes coutaiued iu tho locked
I steel recesses, earrjing them to their
own oflicen when the day's business
- begins aud back to tho safo deposit
at its close. If a box-holder alllictod
with nervousness or absent-mindedness
rushes away without closing
i his box, the steel door will not clos
but bo hold open by a spring, so
that one of tho firm will see the mis
take aud notify tho holder.
Tho prices of the Im.xcs rango from
$12 a year to $16, $20 aud $:), ac
cording to sizo. In the box vault
there is an electric lamp, which bo-,
ing on tho end of a free insulated
wire may bo moved to any corner, or
carriod to tho outside. Alongsido
of tho vault containing tho boxes
for rout is another vault where tho
' firm stores its own documents and
i treasure, which has room and is
i utilized for storing valuable por-
, soual property of customers who,
i for Instance, may bo leaving tho city
I or tho islands.
j Each vault has an iusido and out
, side door. Tho iusido door is fitted
j wit h an ordinary combination lock,
whoso secret is knowu only to tho
I firm. However, this makes little dif
ference, as.it is arranged that ouo or
: other of tho firm is in tho otllco aU

is a time lock on tho outside door,
which is set to opou at 8:15 ovuiy

the lapso of half an hour, ouo hour,
or any time up to forty-olg.it hours
after closing, only it must bo wound

I E. A. Jones nhowud our roportor
j how ho closed up tlio vaults. Tbu
lock bulng net and wound aa roquir
od, ho BwuiiK tho iuaivH door to,
explalniuK with illustration It bu-
ing closing tluio that an tixposod
combination of lovers had to bo
manipulated to complete tho oper
ation. There was n resonant click as
tho bolts entered their holea aud a
system of tenons onunged their dove
tailed mortises. Mr. Jones said a
' similar sound was omitted when the
clockwork released tho oiiK&goinouts
at tho lapso of tho sot time, jot tho
I door did not open until tho operator
manipulated tlio lovorngo provlously
mentioned. When tho timo lock had
done Its duty, however, there was
still tho inner door combination to
bo workol bofnro access could be
had to either of the vaults. Even
! aflor that thero was required tho in
tervention of both the master key
and tho key of tho box-owner before
a box would yield its contents to ex-
amiuation or removal. '
"If a fellow came in hero and un
screwed all those bolta fastening tho .
hinges," said young Mr. Jones, "ho '
could not get iuto the vault." He J
showed how the edges of the heavy
door dovotailed Iuto the casement, '
to prove this assertion of positive I
security to box holders. Tho vaults '
are not only burglar-proof to tho '
greatest reasonable doirroo, but they
are fireproof as well if auythiug iu
this world is proof against what j
tho reporter is prone to call the I
"devouring elomeut." Thoy rest
upon seven aud a half feet of solid
concrete for a foundation. Thero is
a wide air space between their outer
and inner walls. They aro lined
with half-inch chilled steel, and the
boxes for customers are of steel.
Two and a half feet of concrete and
brickwork covers tho vaults.
"It was proved in the great Bos
ton fire," said Mr. Joiihb the elder
to whom that disastrous eveut was
not much moro vivid in memory
than to his Interviewer who passed
over the ground a year ufterward
"that uothiug withstood fire so well
as brick. I was astonished iu Boston

fresh element of motropolitau pro- ;
Kress to Honolulu. Safo deposit

I Hl)''' which is among the securities
1 ou tliuir periodical lists, but without
assurance against libel suits except
ing by special arrangement. Tho
upper floor of the Safe Deposit
building is occupied by the athletic
lawyrs, Carter & Carter, and by C.
B. Riuloy, the architect of manv fine
I buildings in Honolulu. It is a
; building of striking individuality,
that will make tho stranger crano
his neck out of his carriage to tako
a second look at, as he is driven up
town from a foreign steamer. It
wears a protuberance on the front
which some people addicted to mak
ing comparisons conceive to be a
symbol of the result in the human
form divine of dieting in eatly life
upon Boston baked beans and New
England pumpkin pies.
If you have fire or life insurance
policies, deeds or other important
documonts, or portable treasure of
any kind not in present use, it will
j be the part of wisdom to rent a box
in the vaults of the Hawaiian Safe
Deposit Company. And if you
would bo in liaste to grow rich,
peruse the stock list issued by tho
proprietors. Perhaps, if you ilo not
care to become rich too suddenly,
i you had better not buy shares in the
