OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES I

Hill Sunday threatens to come to
Honolulu next year. He can't come
this year, glory he! But he hopes to
f-llng his slang hero In 1916. The Ser
Hllo Is showing considerable spunk
In establishing a promotion committee
of her own at Honolulu; but after all
that, seems to be about the only way
the outside Islands can hope for their
just share of the tourist business. The
experiment will be watchod with In
terest. Garden Island.
What, was this work "the dele
pate" did at Washington for which he
received a fee of $750 from the Hono
lulu brewery? The people of Hawaii
have a right to know. Garden Island.
That the outlook for a larger Ha
waiian tourist crop this year than ever
before seems to be simply fading iway
to nothingness, is the opinion of those
who Keep m loucii with such ques
tions. The expected thousands of
tourists do not seem to be materializ
ing and the European war, which was
fully expected to cause many trippers
who usually visit Europe, to come to
Hawaii Is now, through further com
plications, having just the opposite ef
fect. The war is so close to home row
days and the situation Is so ticklish
that people will not travel at least
ofr the mainland. They cannot be
blamed for this and, when the pros
pect of being marooned In the Islands
for months on account of not being
able to secure steamer transportation
back to the Coast Is also taken into
consideration, the wonder is that ven
as many tourists as have rome, have
ventured to take the journey at all.
It Is hard luck for Hawaii, as It was
figured out. that a fair percentage of
the people who visited the Panama
Exposition 'Jould conti'.ue their excur
sion to these islands. Hawaii Herald.

Mormons May Buy Steamers.
The building of a big sugar refinery
at Por tland. Ore., Rnd the inauguration
of a steamship line between Portland
and Honolulu may be one of the early
results of the visit to Hawaii last
month of Joseph F. Smith, president
of the Mormon church, and Ilishop
Charles W. Nibley.
If the refinery is built the Mormon
syndicate plans the building or pur
chase of a number ot steamers to
carry raw sugar from Hawaii to Port
land, and the extension of sugar enne
culture by the Mormons In this terri
tory. The investment of many mil
lions of dollars is contemplated, if the
project proves feasible.
Berser Resigns, Kalanl Appointed.
After 43 years of continuous service
as director of the Hawaiian Hand,
Capt. Henri Ilerger on latt Saturday
tendered his formal resignation to
Mayor Lane. Capt. Berger was pen
sioned by the last Legislature. Peter
Kalanl has been appointed to suc
Potash From Sea Weed.
"j. M. Westgate, director of the Ha
waii Experiment Station, believes that
It is feasible to extract the potash
salts contained In all Kra weert nnH
thus be independent of this important
ten inzer ingredient, neretorore almost
exclusively imnorted from Cernmnv
The plan is now being worked out on
Ihe Pacific Coast, and if the quantity
of weed is sufllcient here, it should be
possitue to obtain the local supply
right here at home.
Chinese Steamship Line Soon.
At b.-ast five modern pastenger nnd
freight steamers are soon to be put in
operation on the Pacific by a Chinese
syndicate, according to news received
in Honolulu this week. The Chinese
government has subsidized the new
line heavily, it is understood. Fung
Sul, a representative of the company,
passed through Honolulu on Tuesday
enroute to New York, where he hopes
to secure at least two vessels suitable
for the service at once. The new line
will sail under the Chinese flag and
will make Honolulu a port of call.
Freight Reduction Helps Hawaii.
A voluntary cut of 20 per cent In
freight rates on sugar between Cali
fornia points and a zone with an east
early boundary marked by Milwaukee,
Racine, eastern Illinois, Iowa and
southeastern Missouri, was announced
in San Francisco by the Southern Pa
cific Hallway Company on June 11.
Thl 4 new reduction will mean a big
saving in freight rates to Hawaii su
gar planters in permitting them to
compete with eastern refineries in
middlo west territory.

near-Admiral Clifford J. Boush has
been designated to succeed Uear-ad-miral
C. 11. T. Moore as commandant
of the naval station, Hawaii. Admiral
Boush is now in command of the 2nd
