who arrived in this city on .the steam

Taylor declares that the work of

for the exhibit are to be submitted to
the Legislature at its next session.
He is confident that. $150,000 will be

To Show Wonderful Scenery.
"Our plans contemplate a display of
Hawaifls wonderful scenery in dio-
ramlc effects, showing the . Volcano
of Kilauea, the Nuuanu PalC rugged
coast scenes, and the deep gorges- of
the Island of Kauai, which rival those
of the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately,
t he last Legislature in passing a
measure for the appointment - of . a
Fair Commission, did not appropriate
funds for: preliminary expenses, and
the commission's work for some time
was perfunctory. Funds have been
placed in the hands of the commis
sion, and comprehensive plans' are be
ing worked out.
Transplant Native Charm.
"I doubt If .there is a part of the
American mainland which has scenic
attractions to; equal those of the Ha
waiian Islands. There is a peculiar,
subtle charm about the Hawaiian Isl
ands which appeals to travelers, and
those charms we expect to transfer
in some form or another to San Fran
cisco in 1915."
