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.
The top-notch of excellence, the low-water mark In prices; that's th
way It is In our splendid furnishing department. As typical of values here,
we note today a strong line of MEN'S SUSPENDERS, made of ceUnt

USE THE BEST
k And the Best is
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

outhouse connected therewith situated
on the corner of Kukul and River
"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

same was performed a;id furnished is

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

'That the said Gehring & Butzke file

propensities of the plumber.
Plaintiffs .complaininer alleere: That

The plaintiffs allege the defendant
has not fulfilled his promises to pay

In this action.
NOW IN COURT
Widow of tha Late Well
fcnowu Giocer Petitions
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,
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
