Profits by San The great catastrophy that oc-
Francisco's Misfortune. curred in San Francisco on the
18th of last April seems to have been of less harm than the evil
conditions that have since confronted that stricken city.
Under ordinary circumstances the San Franciscans would have
sooq built a new San Francisco that would have been more magni
ficent than the former oue but such a combination of efforts on the
part of these who care for nothing but their own interests has
taken place that it will be many months before any great era of
building takes place. As it is now building cost fifty per cent
more than it does in any city on the coast,.
This was brought about by a combination of the material dealers
and labor leaders who sought to profit at the expense of the
Manufacturers agreed to employ union men exclusively and put
union labels on all material and contractors agreed to use only
union material and to employ only union men and the union agreed
to boycott anv concern not in on the deal and as a consequence all
competition was stifled and building is practically at a standstill.
The inside workings of this villainous scheme is being brought
out by the attorneys in a suit now pending before one of the courts
in an action entitled the Union Lumber Company vs. The Build
ing Trades Council. Many of the members to this combine are
beginning to see the error of their ways and regret the course
they have taken for the reason that nothing but temporary ouild
ings are being erected nor will they be in the near future for the
reason that the cost is too great while the other large cities of the
coast are forging ahead at rapid strides and will gain a per
manent foothold that San Francisco cannot hope to overcome in
many years if at all.
While many would doubtless have returned to the trade of San
Francisco if she had been able to meet such demands in a reason
able time they cannot be expected to hold their orders for her in
In the mean time Seattle and Oakland and Los Angeles are for
ging ahead at a rapid rate, especially" Seattle and will hold much
of the trade that formerly belonged to San Francisco.

For Hawaii'' mercial Advertiser of Honolulu proceeds
to roast Kuhio in the most scathing terms. Although admitting
the motives of the Advertiser are commendable and that the paper
is seeking to attain the best interests of the Territory rather than
the interests of an individual it is a matter of regret that the at
tack was made at this time. Kuhio was the unanimous choice of the
best element of the Territory at the last convention and was elect
en by an overwhelming majority, tie lias not yet begun ms ser
vice for the term to which he was recently elected and doubtless
no uood will result in an attack on him at this time. If his work
was such a failure during the past as our valued contemporary
would have us believe, then we are to blame for nominating him
and electing him to the office. If his present term is not satis
factory it is our duty to put forward at the proper time a succes
sor who will meet the requirements of the office.
We believe the office should be filled by a Hawaiian and we know
they have many men who are eminently fitted for the position who
would fill the office to the satisfaction of the public and with credit
to the race.
We feel that it would be the wiser course to await the result of
th9 work of the Delegate before condemning and if his work for
the term is not satisfactory then put forward the name of & suit
Lane on Jobs in Legislature.
Senator Lane, speaking nf appoint
ments in the Legislature says:
"Members of the Senate have not
been caucussing in regard to appoint
ments to be made in the upper house.
I am of the opinion, and many are of
my mind in the matter, that it Is up
to the executive committee of the
Republican Territorial Central Com
mitteo to make recommendations as
to whem should be appointed Presl
dent of the Senate, Speaker of the
House, clerks, interpreters, chap,
lain, messengers and sargent-at-arms.
"I have received letters fiomMaui
suggesting that Maui should get the
appointments for chaplain and mes
senger. Oahu those for clerk and
sergeant-at-arms and Hawaii, assis
tant clerk. It may be well to distri
bute the appointments that way, but
I think that recommendations should
come from the Territorial Central
Committee of the Republican party.-'
J. A. HARRIS
The Need o! One of our readers has sent us a com-
Fortifications. munication this week belittling the idea
of fortifying the Islands.
In view of the unanimous opinion of the most learned of our
army and navy experts that such fortifications would strengthen
our position it seems that their opinion rather than that of a
layman should be accepted as the better of the two.
Our correspondent maintains that without a powerful fleet no
fortifications that could be made could hold the forts against a
strong blockading fleet but seems to forget that there is a very
longdistance between the island and any coal base and consequently
a blockading fleet would very soon be helpless and of no force or
effect. As to the ability of a fleet to take one or more of the other
islands than the one fortified we admit that it is possible but fail
to see any advantage for the reason that there being no - coal base
the attacking party would soon have to vacate even if not opposed.
While it is probably true that we ave in no danger of being attack
ed by any power at the present time it is the strength of our pos
ition that prevents an attack more frequently than any other rea
son. An unfriendly power thinks twice beJore attacking u strong
foe. Let us prepare for war and thus avert it rather than await
an attack and find our selves in a defenceless position.
