Matter To Be Considered Next
Thursday Time Now Very Short
Owing to the absence in Honolulu

of the chamber of commerce, which
would have been held yesterday, was
continued until Thursday of next
week. The most important, business
to be considered will be the matter
of holding the Civic Convention this
Mr. Case, who returned home Wed
nesday night states that while the
Honolulu chamber of commerce, Ad
Club and Rotary Club have voted in
favor of the convention, he did not
find any great enthusiasm over the
matter in Honolulu. The Japanese
chamber of commerce, he states, has
joined with Hilo and Kauai in op
posing the meeting this year. Other
organisations throughout the territory
have not taken the trouble to express
an opinion one way or the other, not
having answered the committee's let
ters on the subject.
Secretary Raymond C. Brown, of
the Honolulu chamber, while strong
ly of the opinion that it is a mistake
not to hold the convention, stated
that it is now probably too late to
get a program prepared even if it be
decided to 1-old the meeting.
