What Promotion Means
To The Ordinary Man
BY J, M.
There is I believe a widely pre
vailing misconception that i t
doesn't mean anything at least
It means something perhaps to
a favored few who extract a profit
out of the tourist. The hotel man,
the auto' man,' the baggage man,
the curio dealer, the steamship Co.
but the ordinary' man looks on
with indifference it doesn't mean
anything to hiu
Now this is purely all wrong.
Prosperity is a thing that can't be
confined within narrow limits, and
though these interests may receive
the first distribution qf the benefits
they cannot monopolize them, they
quickly flow to the whole com
Take any one of these interests.
The hotel. The tourist pays the!
hotel man, let us say $100. This
31 00 is divisible into two factions
running expense and profit. I don't
know what the profits of the hotel
business nre compared with the
gross receipts. Let us assume that
" - - v.. ,
$10.00 is all that the hotel man
can pocket out of the transaction.
Now let us see what becomes of
this $10.00, like the test of people

and they insist on his bearing a

she proceeds to put on more style,
his children find it out and spend
more money. Or if he is too
thrifty for that aiuj wants td build
up a fortune, he makes iuvesti-

In a decision which will prove
of general interest throughout the
territory because it has a direct
bearing on the retail and whole
sale liquor business in tj'.e islands,
the supreme court reverses the
judgment of Circr' ludire Lvle
A. Dickev, of Kntrm, ' orders the
conviction and judgment set aside
and the defendant discharged in
the case of Manuel Reis.
Rejs, acting as traveling auent
for Rosa & Company of Honolulu,
a wholesale liquor firm, was fined
$100 and costs by Judge Dickey
las July "for distributing for sale
intoxicating liquors,' a t Lihue,
Kauai, on May 23. Judge Dickey
did not deny the agent's right to
solicit orders for liquor, but in
this particular instance Reis, at
the request of the purchaser, re
ceived the shipment for him when
it arrived at Lihue from Honolulu
and delivered it. The shipment
consisted ot a barrel of beer con
signed to a Japanese storekeeper
a t Nawiliwili. Afterwards Reis
collected for the liquor, also for
his service in receiving it at Lihue
and delivering it at Nawiliwili.
Judge Dickey held that Reis
violated the law in that he did not
have a license to distribute for
sale, though he did have a license
permitting him to solicit orders
for the Honolulu firin?

The unique opportunity has
been realized by the people ot Ha

The tropical areas which have
been added to the domain of the
United States, t h e Phillipines,
Hawaii and Porto Rico are calling
for a large, force of younsr men
trained in tropical agricu'ture.
A few years ago it was pro
phesied that there would be an
overproduction of graduates from
the colleges of agriculture on the
mainland. As the number has
grown the demand has increased,
and there ari today more ooenincs
for the hundreds than there were a
few years ago for the tens.
These young men are demanded

wishes to enter the field of tropical
agriculture as a business, at the

a strong and liberal education
