The text, of Secretary Taft's i. ll'er
to Senator AUi-on is as follow.-.: "I
write to urge r, you that the a I pro
iir.ation for Pearl llar'-or In' made
Stt.'iU.OOO instead of il00,000. We can
certainly expend this iu the next
ear, and there i- every reason why
the fortilieatioi.s of Hawaii should be
made ready'. Will you not brii.g th s
to the attention of your committee
and the Sunat ? The inclosed state
unlit from the National Coast De
fense Board, recently ai. pointed.
siitnvs the facts. I send it to you at
tin' suggestion of Senator Perkins."
The report of the National Coast
Defense Board, referred to by the
Secretary, was made lo the Pr.-si
dent and by him traii-uiitted toLmi-
gress a year ago. In sending it the
president himself strongly indorsed
the board's recommendations, winch
included a. sweeping revision of the
plans of the olJ Endieoit Boa.d iie
signed to apply modern methods jc
tlie Coast Deferse p ans. The board
n i.les a strong urgumenl for the
construction of fourteen inch guns, a
type now unknown in the service, in-
s'ead of the twelve inch guns, for the
fortificalion of these points, u, view
of the wide chant. els to be nrotected.

The defense board says: ''Pearl
Harbor is of such strategic, and Ho
nolulu of such material, importavce
that the National Coast Defense
Board arranges for such a first class
ilefense, stating that these places
can not be held unless fortified before
the outbreak of war. Today not a
juii is mounted to defend either.
Thery are related in such a way that
the fall of one involves the loss of the
other. Defenses should be immediate
ly installed at both places."
THE CHRONICLE'S COMMENT. I
San Francisco Chronicle: The on
ly objection to large appropriations
for fortification of both Hawaii and
the Philippines is the ubsued specu
lations of the Eastern and foreign
press ou the possibility of war be
tween the United States and Jap; n.
W ith a people fo sensitive as the
Japanese appear to bo we do not wish
to appear to be raisiifg our bristles
just at this particular time. Never
theless, and without regard to the
possibility of trouble with any parti
cuiar country, so far as we have out
lying possessions we should get rid o!
them or make them impregnable.
We are not likely to ever get rid of
Hawaii, and it is to be feared that
we can not shake off the Philippines.
Consequently we mu-t fortify ihem.
So Ion" as they remain undefended
they are aa invitation to war with
anv naval power which may at any
