8 Money B act If You Say So! HE SMS HE Some men wear Just what they please; others wear what other men affect. There Is a certain style which most men regard em proper, and one must b5 Independently rich, or hopvlessly poor to utterly Ignore the dictates f fashion. One great point about our clothing which ought to appeal to very man who would be well dressed, is thai It Is so well made and sc entirely In accord with the right fashion without being costly. It has all the merchant tailor's distinctiveness; is, In fact, tailor-mad; but i much less expensive than tne ao -called coustom-made apparel.

USE THE BEST k And the Best is Bacchus Brand Yesterday a suit against W. W. Aha na, the Chinese tailor, was filed by the plumbing firm of Gehring & Butzke, to gether with a lien on certain property where they did a plumbing job for Ahana and charged him $1,018.95 for it. There Is still a balance of $641.45, so the firm alleges, due on the bill. They al lege that Ahana refuses to pay the amount, and Ahana takes the stand that he will not pay for work which was not done, or for material which was not furnished. The attorneys for the plumbers ask the court to give them Judgment for $641.45 and $250 as an attorney's fee, al leging that the same is. Just and rea sonable compensation for their ser vices. Magoon and Thompson are the attorneys. Brushing up against a plumbing firm like that of Gehring & Butzke has evidently been infectious when the attorneys have the temerity to ask Ahana to pay an attorney's fee of $250 on a bill of $641.45. In other words Ahana would be bled to the ex tent of about $S91.45. In the mechanic's Hen filed the plain tiffs state their position as follows: "Henry Gehring and Chas. Butzke, doing business under the firm name of Gehring & Butzke, claim a lien and privilege upon that certain building and Interest of the owner of said build ing in the land upon which the same is situated for labor performed and ma terial furnished them in the erection ; and construction of said building, de scribed as follows: "A two-story frame building and outhouse connected therewith situated on the corner of Kukul and River streets. "Said labor was performed and ma terial furnished by the said Gehring & Butzke for and to W. W. Ahana under a verbal contract with said Ahana, the owner of the building. "A particular statement of the afore said labor performed and material fur nished by the said Gehring & Butzke, the amount and kind of labor perform ed and of material furnished, and the prices at which and time when the same was performed a;id furnished is filed herewith and made a part of this claim. That the prices that are set forth in said account are Just and reasonable and In accordance with the contract hereinbefore mentioned, and as per ac count there remains due and unpaid for said labor performed and material furnished the sum of $641.45. 'That the said Gehring & Butzke file this their claim with the clerk of tha Circuit Court of the First Judicial Cir cuit of the Territory of Hawaii,, pursu ant to the provisions of section 1742 of the Civil Laws of 1897 of the Territorv of Hawaii." Both Gehring and Butzke swear be fore a notary public without stint, res ervation or blush at the exorbitant prices charged that the account in the claim is Just, true and correct, and that the material therein specified has been furnished and the labor in said state ment performed by them, and In lieu of Ahana's payment to them of the amount they allege Is due thev claim the building on which they performed work. The bill amounts in all to 1,018.95. The suit filed in the Circuit Court late yesterday afternoon against Ahana claiming the said $641.45, including $2.27 for verifying and fulfilling all thfe legal requirements In and for a lien, and for the further sum of $250 as at torney's fees herein, shows the grab-all propensities of the plumber. Plaintiffs .complaininer alleere: That within two years last past, to-wit, on or aoout the 4th day of August, 1900, at Honolulu, defendant was indebted to said plaintiffs for $641.45 for labor performed and material furnished de fendant at his special request and In stance; on the day and year aforesaid the defendant undertook and faithful ly promised the said plaintiffs to Day the said sum of money when he should be thereto afterwards requested. The plaintiffs allege the defendant has not fulfilled his promises to pay and has wholly refused to pay the claim. The plaintiffs allege that $230 on a suit for $641.45 is a reasonable at torney's fee to be allowed to plaintiffs In this action. HUTCHINGS ESTATE NOW IN COURT Widow of tha Late Well fcnowu Giocer Petitions Foi Administrator. Ethel Hutchings, widow of the late James Hutchings, the grocery man, who died on November 26, has filed a petition for letters of administration in the Circuit Court asking for the ap pointment of Frederick L. Waldron as administrator of the estate. ' She states that due search and in quiry have been made to ascertain if said deceased left any last will and testament, but none have been found, and, according to the best knowledge and belief of the petitioner, the de ceased died intestate. The estate is valued at about $7,576.52, consisting of the following items: Household effects and furniture, $800; stock in trade, $5,000; book debts, $1,000; wagon, $100; horse, $75; fixtures, $300; cash in Bishop & Co.'s bank, $301.52. The liabilities are said to be in the neighborhood of $3,000 or $4,000, as fol lows: Theo. H. Davles & Co., Ltd., about $1,000; T. May, $2,000 and other creditors, but their names and the amount owing to them are not known to the petitioner. The heirs are Alice Hutchings, 12 years old; Mabel Hutchings, 7 years; Ethel Minnie Hutchings, 5 years; George Hutchings, 3 years, and Ethel Gladys Hutchings, 9 months. The stock in trade of the late grocer is said to be of a perishable nature and a large shipment of goods and mer chandise is en route for Honolulu and due to arrive on the Zealandia on De cember 8th; that the good will, of the business Is of great value and will be almost the only asset remaining to the petitioner after the liabilities of the estate are satisfied. She asks that pending the appoint ment of a permanent administrator the lowed to continue and asks that Fred erick Waldron be appointed temporary administrator. The petition will be heard on Friday, January 11, 1901, at 10 a. m. Holmes & Stanley for petitioner. Give Him He will appreciate a good one, such as you can buy at Nolte's.
