BUTTE Hasanyone ever stopped a mo^^ment to figure what a credit bus^^iness leads to^ It is estimated^that in certain large houses in^this city that S5 per cent of their^business is done on credit, pre^^sumably to be settled on the next^pay day. From a conservative^estimate, based on 15 years' ex^^perience in a retail house doing^a credit business, we can correct^^ly state that fully 20 per cent, of^our credits weie lost entirely,^and fully 10 per cent, were out^^standing over one year before^they were paid. Does this pay^^Cannot any man or woman pos^^sessing an ordinary amount of^common sense see that in order^to do business at all they must^make some one pay the accounts^of the 20 per cent, that arc lost.^Who is it that pays this^ Why^it can only be those who pay^cash for their poods, for although^there may be a threat many who^do not pay, there are none who^do not intend to pay when thev^get the goods, and it you attempt^to charge these people more ior^their goods they will not buy^them. It therefoie stands to^reason that a house doing a^strictly cash business as we do^can and does se'.l goods at a^much smaller margin than a^house selling on time, for if we^did not we could not get the^pationngc of any 01 the S5 per^cent, who buy on ciedit and the^other 15 percent, would not be^sufficient lor us to exist.

Gibraltar,March, 18.^Detail* re^^ceived here of the loaa of tbe British^steamer I'topia indicate the distiller was^more terrible thun at first indicated. It^is now said the Utopia carried 880 Italian^immigrants, and the collision was with^the British iron-clad Alison. Tne panic^on the ill-fated atcamatiip after the colli^^sion is described as appalling, men and^women being beside themselves with ter^^ror, and mulling about tbe decks shriek^^ing and praying. Tbe culmination of^the catastrophe came almost immediately^and the Utopia sunk ill Ave minutes ufter^th^ colli*ion, carrying down her living^freight by the hundreds. The boats of^the British iron-clad and oi the^Swedish man-of-war Prcga did their^utmost to care tbo victims strangling in^the water.and succeeded in rescuing many,^but it is feared the greater part of the^Italian passengers were drowned. One^report places the number of lostatOUU,^uud this estimate is probably not far from^the ucttial number. It la thought very^nearly all the ofUcera and crew of t he^Utopia are alive and this fact is taken lo^indicate they paid but litUa attention to^the passengers, and only endeavor, d to^save themselves, Diversand the boats' crews who have^been at woik all day in ^ (Torts being made^by the iiri'ish naval authorities to recover^us many as possible of tho bodies of the^passengers and crew of tbo sunken^steamer l'io;iia, have at this hour re^^covered ii1 iMKlies. Among those saved^from the Kinking vessel by the bouts of^the uian-oi-war wore 'JO of tho Utopia's^crew. ('. M. l-lavis of Boston, a saloon^passenger, is among those reported mns-^iug. Petersen,the Swedish rpiartermaater^who had been steering the t'lopia a short^time before the collision, says just before^the vessels came together he went below.^While there he felt the shock of the col-^lltion ami rushed fr.im below. Just be^^fore he reached the main deck the Utopia^bail gone broadside upon the spar of the^Anson's rum. The commander of the^Utopia, Captain McKeague, according lo^Petersen, was on the steamship's bridge^until the last moment. Petersenadds that as the Utopia was^chased by tho Anson's ram he clambered^up the davits of one of tbe steamship's^bouts and cut the ropea hold.ng it. lie had^no time, however, to lower the boat, as^the boats of the Utopia hud passed ho-^neutli the war ship. MM ufter, tiie boats^of the Anson having Iteen promptly low^^ered, one of the man-of-war's cutters ran^alongside the Utopia and Petersen man^! aged to jump into her. He says while on^board the t'lopia, after the collision, he^was surrounded by a terrible muss of hu^^man beings, fighting their way desp r^at. ly uud savagely, regardless of sex or^age, towards the boats. Men, women and^children tumbled and climlM-d over each^oilier in that horrible light for lifo. tinepoor woman w ho was rescued by^the Anson's lilue jackets went ruving^mail when she was convinced her chil^dr.'ii wi re drowned. 'I here were similar^distressing incidents by the score, the^must awful of nil occurring w hen the Uto^^pia with a linul desperate lurch sunk with^her hum..11 freight cling.i g about her,^und drew hundreds of living |^rsons^down with her. Many of those who^sprung into the sMM they saw the steam^ship could 1101 llo.it many momenta longer,^were then also drawn down in the awful^whiripiHilcaits.il by the Utopia's dtsa|^I euruuee. Some came to the sur^^face uguiu lor u few moments^before sinking dually to their watery^tomb. Oth^r^ more luck'.' were uhle to^cling to pieces oT wreckage, floating^spir-, oars, gratings, hutchways, boats,^life Im'Hh, etc., and this kept them above^water until rescued by tho war shin's^boats, hut, us usual in such cases, the^weaker succtimlied more readily. Shri -k-^ing, pray.iig MM sank to rise no more,^will their tenithd . i! pi.ng clasped to^the r breasts. Children clung to their^parents so desperately at to in several^cases cause dtath to both where they^might have escaped had bet ter judgment^been use I. At8at) p. m. It was announced that the^olllfial n port of the MaV of MM^on Ixiard the Utopia sbows that when she^left Naples the steamship bad 8^(l souls^on board including the passengers and^crew. (If this numb, ronly 311 have been^saved. Thus 5*19 of tbe passct'gi rs und^crew ure either drowned or misting. TheAnson's boats were lowered imme^^diately after the collision, as were also^bouts from other vessels of the British^channel iqundrou, the Swedish man-of-^war I'nga und the ship Amber, and the^ironclads turned their powerful electric^seurcb lights on the scene of the disaster^to assist the rescuers. (In shore the news^of the disaster spread quickly. An enor^^mous crowd soon gathered on the parade^and great ^ xcitt incut prevailed. The sea^was so heavy the lioais of the rescuers^could not with safety approach ttic wreck,^so they were c mpclled to ho to the lee^^ward, where they picked up |^eople as^they were swept from the deck.^As the Utopia aettled a terri^^ble scene was witnessed ffMI^the boats. Those still on board the sink^^ing steamer made a sudden rusk en^masse to the rigging, struggling for their^I ves and vainly se. king places of r^ fug^.^Twenty MM later the Ion-castle was^suhm^ rged and a large number of p. r- por-ohs ga'.l.. rel there. who h.,d ; daredto leap overltoard with a hop. .^being peked up by tbe Ixtats ami who^Ii n^ failed in their efforts toasc. nl '.^rigg ug were curried away by tbe ways.^A steam pinnace rescued all the oth. r-^wbo had taken refuge in the main rigging buttbe last ones were not taken off until^11 o'clock at night. Whilethe st. am pinnace belonging to^the British ironclad Immortalo IHen^^gaged in the work of rescue her eelx-sr^fouled and she drifted on the rocks. Two^of the sailors were drowned. The re^^mainder were rescued. Tho total num^^ber lost is now placed at 578. Officersof tbe Utopia, in talking about^tbe catastt optic, say they will never for^^get the scenes that followed the collision.^Tbe Italians were thrown into a state of^complete and cowardly panic. Tiny^yelled frantically and fought lo reach the^forecastle, A few of the married men^brought their wives with them, but the^majority of the Italians acted more like^beasts than men. Presently an explosion^w itli a deafening report occurred in the^forecastle, killing many and throwing^others into tbe sea. Luckilytbe masts held and remained^some yards above the water as the vessel^touched bottom. From 4'J to sO persons^were rescued from the masts. Amongthe acts of valor at the height of^the gale was that of a British middy, who^put off alone in a dingy for the purpose of^rendering aaaistanco to persons clinging^to tbe wreckage. Another hero was a^seaman on tbe ironclad Rodney, Who^plunged boldly into tbe sea, and after a^desperate struggle aurceedsd in saving^one of the women struggling in the sraarr. Diverswho went down to-day report^tin re aie hundreds of bodies in the steer^^age aim between the decks. Many bode^came ashore to-day. UNCLESAM'S MILLIONS ThaNfwa In Washington.
