A FUTURE ASPECT
The other day a pebble was
cast in the ocean of international
politics causing a ripple to appear
out in ever widening circles until
its outermost ring had puffed the
surface of the earth s most hidden
It meant that Californians, alone
of all the nation realize that the
day will finally come when the
white race will find itself against
the wall fiRhting not for life, but
for racial individuality.
Occasionally our imagination be
stows a thought on the days when
the enervated Roman legions with
feeble arms a n d feebler heart
sought to stem the teeming hordes
of Goths and Vandals that even
tually overflowed the ramparts of
the nation checking the progress
of western civilization for nearlv a
We may laugh to scorn at the
suggestion that the lordly Cauca
sian should ever be in peril of arm
ed conquest bv Asia with its popu
lation of nine hundred millions.
Certainly not, Asia will never
conquer us by the sword. Asia will
conquer us in a more peaceful
manner; through the medium of
commerce, by far the more effective
Far sighted as California may
be, she is hopelessly powerless to
ward off the inevitable fate that
controls the destiny of nations.
For surely laws and treaties can
only delay but temporarily, the
dropping of the bars which sep
arate the great shifting -movement
of races ever toward the
West." Japan, excluding aliens
for centuries as she did, had at
last to open her ports to the occi
dental influx. Korea the Hermit"
kingdom is a dependency of Nip
pon. The mysterious city of Lhasa,
which was a puzzle to the nations
for decades finally had to open,
her portals to young Husbands
column, thus subduing the grand
Lhama and ail his fakery.
Former immigration problems
will be as nothing compared t
those that will confront the Unit
ed States before the end of the
twentieth century. Uncle Sam
wonders how he is going to assi
milate the Hun, the Sicilian and
the Jew; when the greatest of the
continents has not yet begun to
take its place on the map of the
The old trail which was travell
ed before the dawn of history will
be abandoned and the new one
struck, no longer the west-bound
route but the trail which brings
the Jap, and John to the mainland
Suppose this great migration of
Asiatic? be directed against Europe
as well as America what forces
can the white race muster against
this inroad, i he world's popula
tion is estimated at 1.500.000.000
Of this 150,000,000 are negroes or
negroids: 600.000.000 are Montrn-
lian and 300,000,000 are Asiatic
Caucasians such as Armeniens mul
Hindus, speaking a tongue akin
in origin to that of most of the
European peoples but i n re.nlitv
as alien to the western races as
are the blacks of Africa.
This leaves 450,000,000 as
pgainst 1,500,000,000 more than
two to one of black, brown and red
as against the combined Caucasian
blood of the Americans, Europe,
South Africa and Australia.
To illustrate how material pro
gress is taking hold of China, a
recent press dispatch stated that a
number of lepers were found in a
certain provincial town the repub
lican governor of which immedi
ately had a large pit dug, and the
bottom of this was covered with
faggots. The unhappy lepers were
assembled and shot by soldiers,
after which the bodies were cre
mated in the pit
There is cold practical logic in
this and this same cold practical
logic will lead China to forward
her commercial relations with the
United States and Europe. In the
end at its best, it can only be either
sacrificing our business relations
with China o r abrogating the
Chinese Exclusion Act.
It is said that Japan will have
more ships to send through the
Panama Canal than the United
States and she has only been build
ing her merchant marine service
during the last ten years. How
long will it take China to work to-1
ether a merchant marine service, i
,. Is it not possible that commerce
after till may prove to be the alka
li which will cause the oil and
water to mix? II. V.
It is gratifying to know that we
are about to take up an advertising
campaigns What is it tha.t makes
such cities as Spokane, Seattle and
Los Angeles, but the, energy of
their citizens in exploiting their re
sources. If you are not familiar
with conditions, you are very apt
to say that the location, climate,
etc., are responsible for their rapid
growth. But this is not so, for
every one of the above cities is
badly located for a city. Spokane
is hundreds of miles inland, on a
desert, where farming is only pos
sible through irrigation. To build
Seattle it has been necessary to
practically remove mountains, and
even then the city is a succession
of hills a most unlikely spot foi
a great commerical center. Los
Angeles is inland and for years
people insisted that it could never
become a city.
But these places were made m
of energetic citizenship, men who
do things, who refuse to admit the
impossibility of achievement and
the result has been the coming
forth of mighty cities. It is useless
to sit back and say: "We're all
right, we have the location, tin
climate, the resources, the natural
advantages, the world knows of
us; if the people want to come to
Kauai, they will come, and if they
do not want to come, they won't."
That is not true. That has been
the argument of San Francisco, and
the result has been that Los An
geles, Seattle and Spokane have
been getting the newcomers and
growing with wonderful rapidity
while San Francisco has been
worried to hold her own. In eight
years Los Angeles has grown from
100,000. to 300,000; Seattle from
50,000 to 230,000, and Spokane
has sprung from 45,000 to 208,000.
These cities maintain fine dis
plays of their resources. Thev
spend large sums in advertising.
They send millions of pamplets
and folders and pictures all over
the world. They maintain press
bureaus and send newspaper articles
to the papers of the world. What
is the result? When men from the
eastern and middle states start out
for a trip to the coast, they plan to
visit Los Angeles, Spokane and
Seattle. Why? Because they have
heard so much about the places,
they involuntarily turn to those
cities. A city or town will not
build itself. It takes energy and
study and hard work. The same
can be applied to the proper ex
ploitation of our resources and the
upbuilding of the Garden Island.
IN WONDER LAND
The mouth-piece of the real
editor of the Morning Advertiser
was made to say in a recent issue
of his paper, that The Garden
Island i s sometimes a wonder
journalistically and typographi
cally." We are not alone in the
wonder class as will be observed in
some of the statements found in
the Morning Rag. For instance
such slush as the report of the
wholesale murder of the Ah Chock
family, no explanation ever having
been made of the inaccuracy. How
ever, the most wonderful feature
in connection with the morning
paper, is that it's editor hasn't the
foresignt to have it printed on
narrow strips of yellow tissue pa
per, properly perforated, sterelized
and put up in packages at ten cents
each or three-for-a quarter. Put
up in this manner, the morning pa
per would b:stow a greater degree
of comfort upon its patrons and
eventually find its way into every
household in the Territory, with
the added distinction of being the
most necessary paper on file and
in its own little room.
Those who suggested that our
public schools should remain in
session during summer vacation,
must have forgotton that such a
program would be impossible with
out the "belles'
The man who doesn't advertise
because everybody knows him, like
the man who says his wife doesn't
powder, takes a lot for granted.
That the Advertiser drifts with
the wind, is indicated in its atti
tude just "before" and "after"
the nomination of Mr. Pinkham.
The reception to Hawaii's new
governor, will probably be in the
nature of a "pink tea" and "ham"
