Railways and Telephones-Society Business Meeting-. Addresses were made for the Young Men's Research Club at the home of Rev. I). P. Birnie last evening by John Cassidy, Superintendent of the Mutual Telephone Company, and Stearns Buck, Superintendent cf the Government Electric Light Station. The general subject was the use of electricity as power. There were about thirty young men present and all were very much interested in what they heard. Much concerning the handling of electricity that could not have been made plain in an3' other way was brought cut clearly by the speakers. Mr. Cassidy explain ed carefully the generation of the cur rent, the differences between, or rath er perhaps the similarity of motor and dynamo. In illustrating certain points concerning armature, etc., Mr. Cassidy used a magnet and some filings. Mr Cassidy spoke of the fine field here for an electric street railway, calling attention to the favorable climatic con ditions and the absence of heavy grades, lie told also about induction effect on telephone lines and gave the remedy proposed metallic circuit. There was surprise over the showing of the leakage or loss of power both in the conversion of coal and the trans mission of current. In conclusion Mr Cassidy said that Honolulu seemed to offer a most profitable field for an electric railway. Mr. Buck, who is but a few months from the States, told of various electrio railway systems, explained lucidly the trolley, the storage, the underground conduit and the third rail systems. He thought that the particular under ground system might be adaptable to Hawaii. The objection to the under ground wire or trolley was the expense of both construction and maintenance The storage is the ideal system, bui is not yet perfected. It was Mr. Buck's opinion that at least a portion of the new line or lines for Honolulu should have conduit transmission of power. In speaking of the induction to tele phone lines, Mr. Buck said that in the cities in the States where there were no metallic circuits for the telephones any electrician could put his ear to the 'phone and tell just about what business a car was doing on the dis turbing line. For one thing if the buzzing stopped a considerable period a lady was bidding a friend good-bye before embarking. Mr. Buck added much interest to his discourse by dia grams on a blackboard and as well passed about some photographs and tracings showing portions of the equip ment of an electric railway A number of questions were asked and answered, after which (Mrs. Birnie intervened and presided, while refresh ments were served. The new constitution and by-laws of the club were read, and with slight amendments adopted. An election of officers was then held and resulted as follows: President J. T. Crawley. Vice-President Ed Towse. Secretary and Treasurer D. H. Chase. These officers, with two members to be appointed by the president, will constitute the Executive Committee. There was warm support of the sug ge tion that Rev. Mr. Birnie be rekuest ed to address the organization on some evening before his departure for the nited States. Mr. Birnie will choose his own topic and may tell the young men something of his travel and il lustrate the account. In accordance with the wish of Mrs. Birnie the next meeting, which will be the last of the season, will be a ladies' meeting. The program has not yet been made. The meeting of the Research Club last evening was one of the most beneficial and interesting since the inception of the society. A number of those who wrere present will continue, in one way or another, the study of electricity, the practical use of which was commended less than half a century ago. Church Notice. ST.

As the news spreads, so our groceries spread al over the city, from Waikiki to Palama; from the wharf to 'way up the vallej- There is only one conclusion to be drawn, and that is: that the quality o goods must be right not only that but the prices are right, the attention is right, and the goods are in the right condition. Everyone knows of the American Biscuit Company7 and the class of goods they make. The following are a few of the many styles of crackers tha we carry: Graham Wafer, Honey, Pop ular, Oyster, Cheese, Noah's Ark Ani mals (for the little ones), Pretzel- Butter, Showflake, Milk, Wine, Water Gluten Wafer.
