Many Gather At Pan
(Continued from Page One.)
A number of steamship men spoke,
and all dwelt on the importance of
getting ready for big business, and
of treating it right when its comes.
A number of the addresses had to
do with the free port idea, which was
explained at length by Fred Halton,
of the promotion committee, and oth
ers. Prof. Bryan, of the College of
Hawaii went farther, and advocated
having the entire territory made a
free zone for ihe handling, of the
Creating Racial Amity
The dinner at the Nuuanu Y. M. C.
A., on Monday evening was a great
gathering of races, and addresses
were made representatives of practi
cally all of the more important na
tionalities on the Pacific. The influ
ence of the Y. M. C. A as a uniting
influence was emphasized by most of
the speakers at this affair.
Tuesday, which was celebrated all
around tbe Pacific as commemorating
the discovery of the Pacific by Bal
boa, was the occasion of a very large
luncheon on the roof of the Young
Hotel. This was attended by some
5im persons, and the addresses were
again along the lines of getting to
gether. At this gathering representatives
of the various inlands or the territory
spoke of what their islands have been
doing in commercial and other ways.
Worth O. Aiken, speaking for Maui,
said that there is some effort being
made towards developing for the fu
ture. He offered the free port advo
cates Kahului harbor as a place for
developing the free port idea, and
was applauded for the suggestion. He
also advocated a wharf at Lahaina
as the first and most vital need of
Various other exorcises are plan
ed for the week. Alexander Hume
Ford, wno engineered the entire pro
gram, attained a very large degree of
success and co-operation. His plans
contemplate an even larger demon
stration next year, and hopes in time
to result in Honolulu's becoming the
central meeting point for a great pan
Pacific gathering, semi-official in char
acter, which shall meet annually to
consider the big things that effect all
nations bordering the great ocean.

How The "Blimps"
Are Employed To
An American Ballon Base in Eng
land, August 30 (Correspondence of
The Associated Press). The "Blimp"
is the nickname which the American
pilots have given to the little dirigible
airships which are technically term
ed "S. S.," or Submarine Scouts.
The gas-bag of the Blimp is about
150 feet long and 30 feet in diameter.
The lower structure is virtually that
of a scouling airplane of medium pow
er, so that the whole effect is that
i of a sort of a cross between airplane
!nni balloon. The crew is usually one
pilot and an observer, and. the speed
is about 40 miles an hour,
j The cargo is a load of bombs which
'work '.ike a destroyer's depth charges
exploding by watei pressure at a depth
j of 20 lo 80 feet. The carriage con-
tains steering gear, bomb levers, wire
I less apparatus, camera and observa
j tion instruments.
Hundreds of Blimps are constantly
Ion duty around the coasts of France
and England. American pilots and
.observers are just beginning to take
' up this work. It is the greatest U-
bo.it destroyer in existence if the
' men who work the Blimps are to be
I tdievei'.. One enthusiastic American
1 pilot who had been dropping bombs
up and down the Irish sea for a
; month, remarked to The Associated
; Press correspondent, "The Blimp is
not only one of the ways of destroy
ing U-boats, it is the way"
The advantage that the Blimp has
over the seaplane is that it can stand
still in thj air. If a U-boat dives
' down and lies out of sight on the bot
tom, the Blimp sits over it until )t
decides to move on or come to the
surface. If the submarines dies net
move, the Blimp is just as well con
tent, tor in the meantime the wire
I less ha-i been at work, and trawler3
j are coming up in the course of a:i
ho'.i or two with 'he necessary equip
ment to smoke Mister Submarine out
of, his hole.
If the submarine rises before naval
help arrives, the Blimp tackles it
alone wilh bombs. If the submarine
tries to move away along the bottom
of the sea, Ihe Blimp follows its
shadow until its comes, sooner or lat
er lo a shallow spot where it can be
; effectively dealth with.
Subject to Ihe Blimp fuel supply
and its "duration power" in the air,
there is little chance of escape for a
j U-boat once it has been sighted by
one of these handy little dirigibles.
! The sighting or spotting of the U-
; boats is the great difficulty, for the
seas around England are large places
and Ihe range of '.he individual Blimp
is comparatively small.
A larger type of Blimp is now be
ing used, known technically as the C.
P. or Coast Patrol. It carries a larger
crew and a greater supply of fuel and
is used for detecting minefields as
j well as submarines.
