TASK NOW ALMOST COMPLETES STANLEY STEPHENSON'S TRYING x EXPERIENCE AMONG THE MOTLEY HERO. Surveyor Walt Thinks Honolulu Will Have a Better System of Number ed Houses Than Any Other City in America. "W- E. Wall of the survey depart ment, who has official supervision of the worfc of numbering the houses in the city, Is well pleased with the prog ress made by Mr. Stephenson and his corps of assistants. The work will be practically completed by the first of January. I thmk," said Mr- Wall, "that Stan ley Stephenson is entitled to commendation for the thoroughness of hi3 work. He has been patient and persistent, and as a result the city will soon have the finest system of house numbering in vogue anywhere. As soon after January 1st as the post-office is ready, free mail delivery mav be instituted." Mr. Stephenson admitted to a Republican reporter that he knew a thing or two about house numbering, and that incidentally he had added vastly to his stock of knowledge of human ture since he began .the work. "It would surprise you." said. Mr. Stephenson, to hear a small fraction of the catalogue of objections I have met with in my rounds, numbering the houses of Honolulu. One prominent retail merchant was bitterly opposed to the innovation because, as ne said, it would hurt business. This progressive, wide-awake business man argued that numbered houses meant free mail" delivery. Free mail delivery. he said, means that the people will stay at home instead of going to the postoffice. hence they will not be down town to buy goods. I don't know what will become of this merchant when the process is completed. Superstitious and Stubborn. "One fellow down on King street was the strangest combination of superstition and stubbornness I ever savT Over his door is an old tin tag with a numher on it. When he was approached with an official number he looked furtively at the old tin tag and said: " 'Change that, number? Not on your life; not for $5,000. That old tin ' tag is my mascot. To ' it I owe my rather comfortauie fortune. You may put up a new one, but don't touch the old, one.' "One economical Japanese confronted me w.in a bright piece of tin with the figures '160' painted upon it. To make matters worse he had nailed it iO the door upside down. I. exhausted my stock of Christian -grace on this fellow, to little purpose. "I instructed my help to be diplomatic. I told them every morning that swearing at anybody or in the presence of anybody would not be The boys have done noblv in the presence of the enemy, but I can't vouch for their thoughts or their language when in solitude. "At the office of one of the biggest concerns in town I listened with astonishment to this: 'Put a number on our door? Well, no. We are known throughout the United States and even in Europe. We are better known to the people of Honolulu than any other house in town. What do we want with your .numbers?' I felt sorry, sad find sick, and wanted to change my occupation. I walked awav, wondering if I -as in Hilo or in Wailuku or 'in Patagonia. Perversity of a. Banker. "One of the leading officers of one of the banks said to me: 'Oh, we don't need a number on our door. Everybody, knows where we are. The post- office boys can see our sign and we'll get our inail all right' It pained me much to be under the necessity of telling this banker that Uncle Sam would not deliver mail to houses without numbers. "The people that were most stub born at first are now falling over.each other to get numbers for their houses. The outlying districts are coming up better than the principal part of the city. The job will be practically done by the end of .he month. "I have found the Chinese the easiest class of people to work with. They have the proper 'savy' and I have exhausted more i.me with half a dozen 'wise white men than would be required to number a whole block of Chinese houses. The very nice letter I have from the Chinese consul was a greathelp. "The Japanese have been more cranky and stubborn spirited. Even the consul's letter failed often to convince them of the legitimacy of my proposition, and I often wished I was dead when haggling with, a gesticulating Japanese about a simple, sensible house number. "The Portuguese have caused the most vexation, excepting the whites. They are as inaccessible as Punchbowl hill would be forum elephant. and their perversity has often made me long for an earthquake or an irresistible tidal wave. She Was a True Christian. "One woman. God bless her, was the source of great comfort to mr little gang. We had been stemming the stiff current ol opposition and ridicule all dav and in the evening ranc the door bell at one of .the finest residences on eeretania street. The mistress of the mansion said: 'House numbers? Yes. by all means. Ill take half a dozen and hope you succeed in numbering the houses of all my neighbors for ten blocks in every direction. I have been used as a citv directory until my life is a burden. The telephone nngs everr hour in the dav by some one who wants to know if Mr. So-and-so dos not live somewhere In my neighbor hood.

"About five years ago I was troubled with catarrh of the lower bowel." says C. T. ,Chisholmf 4S4 Dearborn Ave.. Ccicago, "and although I consulted several eminent physicians who prescribed for me, I found their remedies failed. to in any way relieve me, and the trouble almost became chronic. After suffering several months, I one day 'concluded to try Chamberlain's CoMc, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and I beg to assure you that I was most agreeably surprised to find after taking two doses of the' remedy that I was relieved of the disease that had cost me' so much trouble and annoyance. I am thankful to say that I have not suffered from it since." For sale by Benson, Smith k Co., general' agents for Territory of Hawaii. Children, Photographs.
