Sound Advice to Hawaii.
HONOLULU, November 21. The
twenty years light between the citi
zens of Los Angeles and the Southern
Pucific railroad and the final victory
of the people over the corporation in
the matter of a free harbor was re
lated in an iutensely interesting way
before the members of the Chamber
of Commerce at their regular bi
monthly meeting yesterday afternoon
Charles D. Willard, of Los 'Angeles,
beiug tho speaker.
The theme of Mr. Willard's address
was to point out the advantages that
may accrue to Honolulu through the
completion and opening up of tho
harbor at San Pedro, through which
two transcontinental lines will seek
an outlet to the Orient. Ue prefaced
his remarks hy statiug that he was
speaking in no official capacity, but
at tho request of FI. P. Wood, a man
to whom it was extremoly difficult to
Houolulu today is in about the same
position commercially speaking that
Los Angeles was twenty years ago,
when the harbor fight began, slated
the speaker, not twenty years behind
the times, but in the same relative
positiou as au isolated commuuity.
Los Angeles then and Houolulu now
were in the position of a good store
ou a btck street, a place which had
things to offur but which had to ad
vertlse to attract those who would
buy. Then, tho flow of travel was
past Los Angeles, just as it is past
Honolulu. I3ut the Los Angeles
people, through their Chnmbei of
Commerce, had advertised, freely to
the extent of a million dollars, and
the result has been remarkable. The
struggle was a long one hut the
people thcro realized that advertis
ing was a long range proposition, the
results of which could not be seen at
The advantage of Southern Callfor
nia, the same as Hawaii, was climate,
but the community had to overcome
the same idea that will have to be
overcome in Hawaii, that it was a
rich man's country, a place where
large ranches and farms could pros
nor buf. which did not have advan
tages to attract the small farmers
and the smaller enterprises, tho real
backbone of prosperity to r.ny coun
try. This idea is gone so far as
Southern California is concerned.
The Los Angeles Chamber of Com
merce worked industriously in bung
ing in und interesting settlers, and
laid down as a cardinal principle tho
rule that the farmers and manufac
Hirers should raise and make for
themselves everything that was need
cd in the country that could be made
there, and the good money that had
been going out of the country for
these things was kept and added to
the prosperity of the cotnmunitv.
And all the time the work of adver
tising the city of Los Angeles was
kept up, until It lias now become
known as one of the best advertised
cities on the continent and to which
people, tourists and settlers at
pouring in all tho lime.
Mr. Willard then told many inter
esting details of the struggln between
Collis P. Huntington and the Los An
geles Chamber of Commerce. The
former wanted to secure Federal
appropriations for the development
of a harbor at Santa Monica, while
tho latter, backed by the State's re
presentatives in Congress und nil the
important commercial bodies of Cali
fornia, contended that. San Pedro
should be developed as being a free
port. With the various threats made
by Huntington, the bribes offered by
him, the intriguing in Washington
and the other details of the long
drawn out fight, the speaker dealt.
The tight was now over. The people
had won and within eighteen months
ship and rail would be brought to
gether at San Pedro. The result of
this on Hawaii will be an increase in
the number of 'vessels touching at
tl ese ports and an immense increase
in the tourist possibilities. The toun
ist trade now brings to Los Angeles
from five to ten million dollars a year
and from forty to fifty thousand peo
plecomo yearly. From Southern Cal
ifornia Hawaii had much more to ex
pect in the way of tourists than from
Sau Francisco, while tourists would
prove to be the forerunners of sot-
tiers for the country.
Mr. Willard concluded his address
bj expressing the hope that the com
pletlon of the San Pedro harbor work
would bring the relations of Los An
geles aud Honolulu, commercially and
socially, nearer and nearer.
Grinding Season Begins.
On Tuesday afternoon the great
Puunene mill of tho Hawaiian Com
mercial and Sugar Company was

The mill was "set in motion by man

Tho crop that this mill will grind

It is one of the largest mills on
earth and is capable of turning out
more sugar per day and at a less
cost than almost any other mill on
During the present year Mr. W.

Charles Creighton Pushcb Awny
Charles Creighton, a practicing
attorney in Honolulu for over twenty
two years, died suddenly, at nine
o'clock yesterday morning, at the
home of h's mother. He had been
about town'on Sunday. The end came
in convulsions, to which he had been
subject for many years. His mother
and a sister, Miss Agnes M. Creigln
ton, are his only relatives known here.
His father was tho late Robert U.
Creighton, for two or three years
editor of the Advertiser and in 1880
Minister of Foreign Affairs, who came
hero with his family fn.m San Fran
cisco early in 1885. Previous to his
residence in Sau Francisco tho elder
Mr. Creighton was in public I'fo in
Now Zealand, whero Charles was
born somewhat over forty years ago.
The deceased attorney was a gradu
ate of Hastings College, Sati Fran
Cisco. Tic was a keen and clever
lawyer, able in handling witnesses
and juries, a hard but fair hitter. In
criminal business there were few who
outclassed him when he was in good
form. Even in his most, depressed
periods a natural geniality oozed out
hi his demeanor. In tho stormy leg
islative session of 1892, he was a
mrmber of Queen Liliuokalani's cab
inet, as Attorney General, just for
the fifteen minutes it took tho Legis
lature to pass a vote of want of con
fidence after that, particular nw
ministry was announced.
The funeral will take place from
Williams' undertaking parlors at 3
o'clock this afternoon. Star.
