y Ai 1 am stationed In the city of
Honolulu. I am not entitled tc a vote
on the proposal ol having an enlisted
men's clubhouse or something simi
lar at either Honolulu or Schofleld
liaracks,' but I desire to explain why
I think that this city is the proper
place for anything of that kind.
"In the first place, there are about
. 3000 troop stationed on the Island,
' . .who are not located at either Schofleld
O Cjstner, so if the clubhouse was to
- be situated at Schofleld. the man lo
cated kt other posts could not parti
cipate In its benefits, owing to the
distance to be traveled and the travel
ing expenses attached -
MI also believe- that the men at all
the posts have sufficient' en tertain-
- men t of the sort that can be had on
a military reservation, as, there are
moving picture theaters, post ex
changes and athletic sports at all
V posts on the Island.
"The principal difficulty now ex
perienced 4s the one-sldedness of the
r . attendance and participation at. these
affairs and events,, the 'gatherings in-
- variably censlei of nothing .but sol
diers, consequently entirely masculine.

dellnqulzcles of several of the enlisted
. men here, . . "
"Now I believe that if an Impartial
Investigation were made it would be
' discovered that the military . part of
this or any community on an average,
compares,, very favorably in character
'with that of the rest of the commu
. nlty. Allowing that to be the case, it
appears that the enlisted men should
be. given the same opportuntty to
' prove his desirability as a member of
. society as that usually given, to a
. lately arrived civilian, who, if his con
duct 'Is circumspect, after some ob
servation and Inquiry, is accepted as
a full-fledged member of the commu

ledges. ' . - .

Is much to be desired the reception aclhas beeri hard at the work of rehears-
corded the soldiers here no definite
proposal has been made concerning
what they desire; now I would like
, to submit this in connection with that
of the Chamber of Commerce:
?lf an enlisted men's club could be
had In this city under the joint su
pervision of ' civilian and military
committees, the club to be supported
wholly by dues assessed from the en-
. listed members. The purpose of the
civilian committee would be to assist
the other committee in promoting
agreeable social relations between the i
emuicia uu iu uTiuan portion 01
our community. . Admission to mem
bership could .be restricted to soldiers
who could show a good character after
a strict investigation. Of course this
plan could be changed and elaborated,
as desired, but I believe that It covers
to a great, extent the desires of a
majority, of the enlisted men on the
laJand, who desire a fair opportunity
of coming In .social contact with the
people of Honolulu far more than any
additional entertainment among them
selves. - "Sincerely yours, '

The other preparations for Jonlght's
entertainment have also been complet
ed. Mr. Priestly has finished his work
of training the boys and 'girls from
Punahou for the parts they are to take
this evening. There are 17 of these
young men and women, and they have
entered into the spirit of the thing
with a vim that has made the work
of the instructor and stage manager
comparatively easy. ;

tee men, Special efforts have been
made to avoid the mistakes made by
the fireworks shows of past years,
and instead of confining themselves
merely to pyrotechnics, the committee
has Insisted that other features shall
be introduced. ' So the fireworks dis
play is to give a vivid representation
of the battle of Manila Bay, showing
the battleships at work hammering

ADMIRAL BAXTER SAYS
U S. NAVYRANKS THIRD
WASHINGTON," D. C. Feb. 23.
That the general board of the navy
had for years teen suomitting plans,
estimates and suggested programs to
the navy department to build up the
navy to its requirements was stated
yesterday before the house committee
on naval affairs by Rear-Admiral Bax
ter. In 1903, he said, the general
board planned to secure a total of 48
first line battleships by1919, aiming
to make the American navy second
only to that of Great Britain and well
ahead of the German navy.
The admiral pointed out that the
United States is fitted today to build
only two battleships a year.
Admiral Baxter said that today he
classed the American navy as third in
strength. France Is fourth and Japan
behind both France and the- United
States, but progressing rapidly and
overtaking the United States.

that the liners are unarmed. Germany
will " contend that what is character

discussion of what constitutes defen
