become district headquarters, as it is
to be the largest coast artillery post
on Oahu, with at least four companies
to man the batteries, and possibly a
mine "company as well. However,
there is nothing but a 12-inch gun
battery and partially completed mor
tar pits at the Pearl Harbor post at
present, and it is hardly likely that
the cenior officer of the corps will
consider camping- there with the 6Mh
and 70th companies. Ruger, with its
two companies, is only a major's com
mand, and it seems probable that De
Russy will be made temporary district
headquarters. According to the origi
nal plan of coast defense, the present
engineer post was to have been head
quarters of the artillery district, but
under the present scheme Fort Ka
mebameha, with its big guns, mortar
battery, and secondary batteries
guarding Pearl Harbor, is to be the
main post of Oahu.
General Wood Coming?
Why all this rush of troops to Oahu
on short notice, before there is a roof
to shelter them? A high ranking offi
cer of this department who has made
a good many accurate guesses up to
date, answered this question as fol
lows: The War Department is throwfns
all the troops it can lay hands on and
transport toward Hawaii," he said, "in
order to make a command large
enough for General Wood to take
when he goes out off office as chief
of staff March 4. It has been the plan
of the general staff for some time past
to make Hawaii an independent divi
sion, as everyone knows, but the work
being hurried up on Wood's account.
He has had about all the big com-p.-ands
that a major general can hold,
but be is no dair warmer, whatever
else people may say of him, and he
has done some splendid ftnlngs for the

Honolulu has 201 on the brain. For
the past two or three days "201
January 10" has been popping out all
over the city. Window cards, bear
ing the mystic numbers have appear
ed in many store windows. Street
rigns flash it at almost every comer
and the newspapers emblazon it in
their display columns. Many of the
oldest inhabitants who thought that
they might escape the "201" by at
tending the moving picture shows
Saturday night, found it starine at
them from the big screen whenever !
a reel of pictures had been complet
ed. But at last the news is out and
the mystery solved and many may be
relieved of suspense. The . Young
Men's Christian Association has.
taken this novel method of advertis
ihg to let Honolulu know that it pro
poses to pull off the biggest member
ship campaign in the history of the
association in the islands, and 201
new members to be secured on Janu
ary 10 is the plan laid down by the
membership committee. Publicity
Manager Charles It. Frazier has seen
to it that everybody will know about
the campaign, and the slogan which
has been adopted is one which has
so mystified Honolulu "201 Janu
dred new members with the present
equipment for which the money was
raised by the citizens of Honolulu
three years ago. The different de-'j
partments of the association are now
in full running order and everything
is now waiting for the two hundred
and one new members. The campaign
will start off with a rush on' the
morning of January 10, and solicitors
will cover the city, ferreting1' out
every prospective member. The head
quarters of the campaign manage
ment will be near the center of town
and! the ' new members, as they are
received, will be-announced on a bul
letin boaraVJ Those in charge of the
campaign have-'secured the co-operation
of the Honolulu merchants, who
will give their time, to help make the
Campaign a success." '
Three army transports will be in
port at the same '"time, about the
fourteenth of this month, and a new
mark is sure to be set for military
activity on Oahu. The Logan and
Sheridan arrive from San Francisco
with the Fourth cavalry, Twenty
sixth infantry and three companies of
coast artillery. The Sherman ar-;
rives from the - Philippines and will
convoy the Sheridan on its return
trip to the coast with the Fifth cav
alry. It is necessary that two trans
ports travel in consort when a full
regiment is being carried, in order
to comply with the new lifeboat regu
lations, and for this reason the sail
ing of the Sherman from Manila was
delayed so that she would arrive here
at the same time as the other two

FREAR FOR RECLAMATION
EXTENSION TO HAWAII
WASHINGTON, Dec. 27 Hawaii
has enjoyed greater prosperity and
progress during the last year than
'during any other in its history, ac-
cording to Governor W. F. Frear's an-
! nual report, submitted today to Sec-
retary of the Interior Fisher,
The preceding four years had been
notable for their prL'sjerity. says the
Governor, but this year witnessed
even greater strides forward.
In commerce, homesteadin:; im
provement in class of immi;?rants.
betterment of transioi (a'ion facili
ties, construction cf public works.
public health, administration ami
school facilities, there uaJ been
inarkod .ulvaine. i
! That the I'nited Stares reclamation'
art be extended to Hawaii is one of!
the Governor's recommenUations. He!
says there are large areas which!
should be made available by irriifa-'
tion for settlement by Americans in
colonies of considerable size.
Irr ports and exports of t Tie islands
during the year totaled $S4.1o.ik..
an increase of $14,680,000 over the
preceding year. The increase was
chiefly in trade with the I nited
States, which constituted more than
nine-tenths of the total. The Increase j
;n exports from the territory was
twelve times as much as tnat in thei
imports, being $13,500,000 against
180,000. The exports totaled $55,400,- j
000; the imports $28,700,000. j
Governor Frear reports that "the
percentage of homesteads taken by !
Americans and other Caucasians has I
been much larger this year than
During the last two years the de-j
parture of Japanese steerage passeu- j
gers exceeded the arrivals by 489.
Our December advertised sale of 30 Pianos
