THE GADEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1915.
The directors of the Ililo Board
of Trade had n meeting set for last
Tuesday, but there chanced to be
not a quorum present. However,
certain communications were read
in order to get them before the
public, among them being a letter
from Dr. H. B. Elliot respecting
the Civic Convention. It view
of the immediate interest in this
matter here, the letter is repro
duced in full herewith, bein as
To the Directors of the Board of
trade of Hilo,
I beg to submit the following
suggestions relating to the organi
zation of the annual civic conven
tion to you for your consideration.
(1) . The 1st Annual Civic Con
vention was organized b y this
Board, and certain civic organiza
tions were invited to participate.
The purposes of the convention
were clearly defined by myself in
an address opening the convention.
(2) The organizations w u i c h
were represented at zhat'time were
The Honolulu Chamber of Com
merce, Honolulu Merchant's As
sociation, Maui Chamber of Com
merce, Kohala Civic League, Ko
na Improvement Club, and the
Board of Trade of Hilo. Invita
tions were issued to individuals
upon the island of Kauai, there
being no organization upon that
island then, but none were ac
cepted. (3) . The purposes of the con
vention were defined to be develop
ment of mutual and harmonious
co-operation between the various
sections of this territory by afford
ing in these meetings an oppor
tunity for better acquaintance
ship and free discussion of common
(4) . The fact that two of the
organizations which took part in
the first convention are practically
ignored in the invitations issued
for the fourth convention to be
held on Kauai this month despite
the tacts that they are still thriv
ing organizations and have con
tinued to give steady and enthu
siastic support to the convention
movement each year suggests that
it is most desirable that the con
stituent organizations entitled to
the privileges of the convention
shall be specifically named.'
(5) , Further, if the original
pur; oses for which this convention
was called into existence are still
considered desirable it ir very evi
dent that any limitation ot attend
ance is a limitation of the useful
ness of the convention. Obvious
ly if we are to fulfil these purposes
in the fullest degree every mem
ber of each participating organiza
tion should be encouragtd to at
tend, and if anv limitation is con
sidered necessary it should only
apply to voting delegates,
(6). The ideal meeting place
for these conventions is the city of
Honolulu wheie there is ample
public accomodation for any num
ber of visitors, and no necessity
exists tor accepting private hospi
tality, It would appear to be in
the best interest of the convention
movement that this fact shall be
recognized in future and that all
meetings shall be held there, If
it is still considered more profit
able that some meetings shall be
held on the various islands, then
each alternate convention should
be held in Honolulu.
(7). The convention exists for
the benefit of all of the partici
pating organizations, and eech one
is entitled to a voice in the ar
rangements made for each conven
(8). The necessary expenses
for the management and entertain
inent should be paid by contribu
tions from each organization, as
sessed proportionally upon annual
(9). To put any suggestions

along these lines into effect it is
absolutely necessary that some
form of permanent organization
must be created for this purpose.
(10). The form of organization
should be as simple and unobjec
tionable as possible. I suggest
that i t will take the form of a
written constitution covering the
(a) . Definition of purpose.

agement consisting of representa
tives from each organization and
defining its powers and duties.

ceive the approval of the Board of
Trade I further suggest that a
communication embodving them
be sent to the Honolulu Chamber
of Commerce, Ad Club, Kauai
Chamber of Commer e, Maui Cham
ber of Commerce, Kohala' Civic
League, and Kona Improvement
Club with a statement that the
Board will introduced a resolution
at the coming convention asking
for the appointment of a committee
to draft a written coustitution for
the future government of these an
nual conventions with instructions
to report to the convention of 1916.
Yours verv truly,
H. B. Elliot.
Frank J. Sheridan, commission
er of the Bureau of Foreign And
Domestic Commerce, accompanied
by his two assistants, Messrs. Mills
and Mead or, completed his work
on Kauai today and will sail in

The investigation being made by
Sheridan into the sugar industry
was not brought about altogether
by the recent tour of this Territory
by the Congressional party, but
is beng made under an act of
Congress of 1912, or more than
three years ago, which requires
that investigations be fully made
into the effect of tariff legislation
upon business of any kind. Of
course it is generally understood,
however, that the discussion of the
harmful effects of free sugar and
the prospect of the law going into
effect in less than a year, has hast
ened this particular investigation.
Mr. Sheridan and his assistants
landed at Waimea last Wednesday
morning and first became the
guests of Manager Baldwin, at Ma
kaweli, They investigated conditions
o n the Hawaiian Sugar, Mc
Bryde, Waimea and Kekaha plant
ations. 'and then came to Lihue,
where they were the guests of Rev.
Hans Isenberg. Koloa, Lihue and
