in tho strong arm of the law, exem
plified by stone walls and iron
barred doors, before they had more
than gained a glimpse of Wailuku, is
evidence that Maui is able to make

Business Men Confident Hawaii Has
Great Opportunity to Gain In
creased Tourist Business
(Special to Matt Nhws.)
Honolulu, August 0. In a state
ment issued by James I). Dougherty,
director-general of the Mid-Pacific
Carnival, tho declaration is made
that, under no circumstances, will
the lOlocelobration of Washington's
Birthday bo postponed' on account
of the present war situation in
That the time has come for Ha-,
waii to gain increased prominence
as an all-the-ycar-roiind tourist re
sort, is the opinion of local business
men and commercial organizations.
Thousands of tourists who will bo
unable to go to Europe during the
coming winter and next spring will
seek other lands in which to spend
those months. With the Mid-Pacific
Carnival as an attraction next
February, it now is believed that
these tourists may bo headed toward
Hawaii if the proper promotion
work is accomplished and the
islands adverstised to a greater ex
tent. The Honolulu Ad Club has com
menced a campaign to secure more
subscribers to the fund of tho Pro
motion Committee. The Promotion
Committee, in turn, is giving every
possible assistanco to the Mid-Pacific
Carnival Company, and the car
nival company is sparing no efforts
toward producing in February, 1915,
a carnival which will cover a greater
scope, and which will be more elabo
rate than any othor event of its kind
over held in tho islands.
It is now an assured fact that
thousands of tourists aro going to
visit the islands this winter and
next spring. Hundreds of Austra
lians, en route to the exposition,
aro going to stop over in Hawaii,
take in the carnival and then tour
the islands. As one Honolulu busi
ness man has said :
"Hawaii's golden opportunity is
at hand and miift bo grasped.
