'Phe following additional informa
tion came in the mail this morning
concerning the wireless plans of Sec
retary Daniels arrivirg after other
matter on the same subject in this
issue had been put into type. It is
from the secretary of the Honolulu
Chamber of Commerce:
' "I am in receipt of your various
wirelesses indicating Jhat you have
asked for postponement on hearing
of Senate bill,717S.
"The initiative was taken in this
matter by the wireless telegraphy
company on receipt of Senate bill
747S which was briefly digested to
you under cover of our letter of the
ISth. I do not know how much
you may be able to gather fioni that
brief digest, but the Mutual Tele
phone Company here feels that if
the Senate bill and like bill in the
House should become law, it would
absolutely scrap the entire equip
ment of the Mutual Telephone Com
pany as u-cd at present on account,
more particularly, of the length of
wave which is prescribed. Another
interference with tho-inter-island in
tercourse would be tin' alternating
service between commercial inter
ests and the government. The gov
ernment also regulates rates, regu
lates operators in that it would pre
clude the possibility of the Mutual
Company taking on any but opera
tors licensed by the government
and the government, acting through
the Denartmentof Commerce, would
have absolute jurisdiction over the
service. Our strong point will be, 1
feel reasonably sure, that if it is in
the interest .of the governinent to
regulate the coastal wireless stations
that the bill be made applicable
only to the continental territory of
the United States where means of
communication, other than wireless,
is available and not. handicap us in
those islands where our only means
of rapid communication is the wire
less syMem." t
