I "TED"V ESD AY" Tbe stockholders of the Volcano House Company held an adjourned annual meeting yesterday morning to discuss businees matters and elect new ofllcers. Tbe following gentlemen were elect ed: President, w. It. Castle: Vice- President. John Kda; Auditor, C. L. Wight; Secretary, 8. B. Kose; Treas- urer, IS. c. aiaciarlane. Treasurer Macfarlane'" report for the past fifteen months was read and showed that tbe real current gain for this period amounted to $3997.30, or a dividend of nearly nine per cent, on a capital 8 lock or Soo.uuu. mis is a re- markale showing for tbe new board of management as tbe concern was on the verge of bankruptcy but six months ago. Tbe trouble was averted, However, ana from present appear ances it looks as though tbe stock will soon be considered gilt-edged. This satisfactory state of attairs was brought about by the new board of directors, who took bold when every thing was in a terrible state of conru sion. The treasurer's report is an elabo rate one and shows that great care and much labor had been spent in its pre paration. The indebtedness of the Company, as shown by tbe books, June 30th, 1894, was $10,529.67. In speaking of this Mr. Macfarlane says: "As the resources of the company were inade quate to prompt settlement of same, It was decided to issue bonds to an amount not exceeding $10,000, payable In five years, and any portion or all at the option of the company as pro vided in the terms of the bonus them selves. Tbe coupons are payable semi-annually at the rate of eight per cent, per annum. Ihe bondholders were secured by a trust deed of tbe Volcano property to J. F. Hackfeld, trustee. "The credits to coupon account are refunds of interest by subscribers to bonds to enable holders to draw full coupons on January 1. 1893. These refunds are owing to bonds being taken after July 1, 1S94. The total subscriptions to bonds aggregating 6900. Coupons to the amount of four per cent, of the same will be paya ble January 1, 1&95." Regarding tbe prospects of the com pany the report says: "Indications point to a great Increase of both tran sient and tourist travel. The past three months have been the most profitable since the inception of the company. The management of the company's hotel by 1'eter Iee. leaves nothing to be de sired. He unites all tbe qualifica tions necessary for bis very peculiar and arduous position. Half-fare tic kets to children under twelve year3 of age are now under consideration. It is probable that all parties interested will consent to such an arrangement. "A new departure in the details of bookkeeping has been inaugurated. From and after October, 1894, the books will be kept at the Volcano House, and will include in entries all transactions in Honolulu. An elabor ate report, financial and statistical, the joint production of Messrs. Thurs ton and White, will be rilled out and rendered quarterly." In conclusion, Mr. Macfarlane says: "It will be seen from my report that the company has cancelled a portion of its indebtedness by issuance of bonds to the amount of $G900. The balance of the Capital Stock untaken nearly reaches these figures. It is ap parent that no effort should be spared to sell the balance of stock. Nor should this task devolve alone on the treasurer; an active canvass should be made bv the friends of the company in this direction. 'I have been immersed in a large foreign correspondence, and have lost no opportunity to supply Volcano lit erature and information or advantage to intending tourists. As a result three Cook Tourist Excursions will visit the islands in the near future. MI. B. Bice, our passenger agent in California, is also pushing tourist travel in this direction. A corres pondence conducted with the Union steamship Company, and the lavish distribution of information demanded for them, will undoubtedly result most favorably for the Company inter ests. In short, the outiooK lor ine year 1S9-5 is a bright one." Thanked for Their lVork. At the eighty-fifth annual meeting of the American Board of Commis sioners for Forelcrn Missions, held at Madison. Wis., on October 10, the following resolution was passed "Besolved, That the Board place upon record its thankful appreciation of the invaluable service done by r. and Mrs. Bingham in giving to the people of the Gilbert Islands the en tire Bible in their own language, re cognizing in their accomplishment another illustration of the value of patient scholarship in missionary work.
