That Polo Came.
The News has received a lengthv
and vehement disclaimer from W. O,
Aiken, Secretary of the Makawao
Polo Club, of the sentiments and
statements in last week's News, re
lative to the inter-island polo match
While the News published the
article upon information which it
deemed perfectly reliable, yet Mr.
A iken's letter puts an entirely new
light on the matter, and it is with
pleasure that Uhe : News- learns' and
states that there was really nothing
in the charge thnt a scheme was put
up to tire out the Maui horses.
In tuis connection, the members of
the Maui Polo Team desire to bo put
upon record ns to the eminent fair
ness'of the Oahu Club, as well as to
their excellent management in all
matters connected with the recent
Honolulu Will "Mke Good."
It was a pardonable prido at.d am
bition which has led some of the res
idents of Honolulu to build business
blocks and business enterprises
larger than present neeas call for,
but Honolulu is on the eve of ''making
good," and the twenty years which
are supposfrd to be needed to get
reudy for these buildings and busi
ness ventures will dwindle down to a
scanty five years within which itmaj
be safely predicted that, Hrnolulu
will double in population, and even
the Young building will be a paying
One needs all the lingers of botli
hands upon which, to count the good
things that are eomi.ig to Honolulu
and the Islands, the leading ones of
which are the swinging of local pol
itics in line with national politics,
the undoing of Wilcox and the home
rulers, the approaching cable, the
certainty of an istliman caual,
the increase in the price of sugar,
the proposed payment by congress
of the lire claims, the excellent
material composiug our next legis
latire, congressional appropriations,
iu fact the enumeration of the list
becomes tiresome, but they are all
good things, and they are coming.
Notwithstanding the present scar
city of money, Honolulu is making a
tine Christmasdisplay, and doing a
good Christmas business.
Along some business lines, things
are quiet, but improving, and within
six months Honolulu will be in line
with the mainland so far as business
activity is concerned.
The worst business feature of Hon
olulu is the lack of a merchants' li
cense law, aud the next legislature
should reimpose a good, still license
on all merchants throughout the Isl
ands. Those who can afford to oav
the license will be benefited by the
driving out of a lot of irresponsible
hucksters, who are simply barnacles
on the busiuess interests of Hawaii:
The Honolulu hotels are doing a
fair business, and the Hawaiian uiir
der charge of Mr. Wills, its new
manager, ably assisted by Mr. Doty,
the head day clerk, is now bv far
the most popular hotel in town.
No definite time has been fixed for
the opening of the Young Buildiug
hotel, and the work of furnishing it
has not yet begun. The Moana and
the Waikiki Inn are both now under
popular managers, and cater to a
Shippers in Houolulu are watching
with much interest the struggle be
tween San Francisco and Seattle for
the transport business and there is a
'rowing conviction that Seattle will
capture the plum. It is claimed that
at least 12.00 a ton can be saved to
the Honolulu merchants, by trading
in Seattle, and this may prove an
important factor in determining
whether Seattle or San Fraucisco
will handle the bulk of the Island
The Cable is Coming.
The Zealandia brought the good
news that the Silverton reached Sau
Francisco on Dec. 4. The shore end
of the cable, as well as the instru-
mentvpr working and testing the
cable, were landed on the day follow-
gi the n ival of the Silverton in
Ssn rauclco, and relittuig was at
onee cuimne&cad, for the trip from
San Francisctt to Honolulu.
According to. the plans and calcu
lation'of -tb6 Cable Company off!
cials, th Silverton was to have left
San Francisco last Saturday, Dec
13, aud should be a week out today.
It is believed that liio mishap oc
curt, the cable ship wnJ reach Hon
olulu in 12 or 15 days from the date
of her sailing, so that she will be due
in Honolulu about Christmas Day.
Airangemeuts hi Honolulu are be

Honolulu will be completed, so that

and four British cut'ers cnulured

went alongside the Venezuelan ves

British and German forces seized the

Two of the vessels, which were under
