WHAT THE BIG EUROPEAN
ALLIANCES REALLY IAN
FOR M PERIOD
Tom Cunn Heard From
The following repot t f the
financial outlook for Hawaii in tli
present war comes from Honolulu:
The bankers of Honolulu were
of the opinion vestcrdav til t Hi
waii is in good financial shape and
can weather any storm.
The local banks nn! ti tM coin
panics have an abundant supply of
currency, There is no immediate
probability that there will be seri
ous interruption of the ordinary
course of commercial business in
this territory, irrespective of condi
tions that may arise on the main
land. All speculative investment
will have to maik time until the
situation adjusts itself, and in the
meantime, until the mainland con
ditions are readjusted local inves
tors will have to bide their time
BANKERS ARE CONFIDENT
Everyone of the bankers in this
city expressed themselves as hav
ing absolute confidence in the pres
ent and future prosperity of Ha
waii. All securities will be difficult of
sale as long as the tremendous
European pressure to sell contin
ues. London, Paris and Berlin are
scrambling for gold, and enormoti
volumes of American and foreign
stocks and bonds have been dump
ed on the American market. The
closing of the New York, Chicago
and San Francisco stock exchanges
yesterday was simply a matter of
self defense, like raising an um
brella in a thunderstorm, to pie
vent being drowned out.
Tom Guiin, the Chinese aviator,
who attempted fligl ts near Koloa
last January, is heard from in Mani
la, it -appeal int iiiat he gave up
his lour ot China. Of him u press
clipping has the lolluwing:
'i'oni Gunn, Chinese aviator, well
known to lloiiululans is at present
showing h.s skill as an airman to
the natives of Manila. He is also
eonstrueting two biplanes to be us
ed in eonnevtiuii with an aviator
school ut Manila and promises to
jgive several tights in them as soon
las they aie completed.
Leans Best The Fats

of baseball a t Makaweli the
"leans" trying conclusions with
the "fats." It would have been a
draw but the "leans'- piled up runs
too fast, and the fats got out of
wind. '1 he seoie somewhere along

In view of the attitude of some
of the powers in the present Euro
pean struggle, with respect to i heir
relations w i t h one another, it
should be interesting lo know just
what the "Triple Allidiice". be
tween Germany, Austria, and Ita
ly, and Ihe' Trtpple Entente", be
tween France, Russia and England,
really are. Of the two the World's
"The Triple Alliance, was form
ed in 1883 between Germany. Austria-Hungary
and Italy for the pur
poseof checking encroachments by
Russia and France. By its provi
sionsthe three Powers were bound
to support one another in certain
"Its terms were made more defi
nite in 1887. The exact provisions
of the Alliance have not been di
gulged, but are said to have been
modified as to France and Italy in
1893. The alliance was renewed
In 1902 and in 1907, for certain
periods, and the period of its last
renewal extends to June 14 1914.
It has been reported, but apparent
ly from no authoritative source,
that the alliance has been renewed
without alteration for a term cf
twelve years. It would appear
that the recent demands of Italy
against Turkey, followed bv Italy's
declaration of war were assented
to by the alliance. For in a u y
years Great Britain, while not a
party to the alliance, was closely
linked with it through apprehen
sion on French and Russian aggres
siveness, but later, becoming dis
quieted by the growth of the Ger
man naval power, adopted in 1902, capacity .
a decided change of policy with a
view to seeking in the Balance of
Power greater security against invasion.
"In pursuance of this policy !
Great Britain entered into an a-1
greement with France in 1904 and,
with Russia ia 1907. The aims f:
the Triple Entente, so called. Great ;
Britain, I-ranee and Russia, were
substantially as follows:
"l. The Balance of Power.
"2. The strengthening of the
treaty law in the interests of peace
and status quo.
In some directions this policy
has met with considerable suc
cess." The editor of the World's Alma
nac, writing some nine months
ago, then adds:
"In the improbable event of a
war between the powers of t h e
Triple Alliance and those ol the
Triple Entente (England, France
and Russia), the land forces of the
Entente would exceed by probabl
a million men those of the Alliance,
but it is doubtful whether the vast
army of Russia could be promptly
assembled for service in the theater
"The strength of the combined
navies of the Entente in ships, ton
nage, armament and number of
men would exceed the combined
naval strength of the Alliance.
"Comparing the number of air
ships, the Alliance has a total
number of 39, with 11.086,000 cu
bic feet capacity, against 35 for the
Entente, with 6,001.000 cubic feet
