Mr. Wilcox, in response to calls
for a "speech", said that he had
been thinking over the matter of

doubt in the minds of anyone as to
how the members of the Chamber
felt in regard to the matter.

and the meeting took up again the
matter of delegates to the Civic Con
vention, to be held in Hilo Septem

decided that members wishing to go

secretary and they would be proper

the service was excellent. Everyone
present considered it a huge success
in every respect.

of the Chamber, the first being upon
the retirement of President Rohrig,
the second upon the retirement of
president Putman and this upon
the retirement of President Avery.
