THE CHAMBER OF
. COMMERCE MEETING
A special mooting of tho Chnmbor ot
Commerco was hold In Llhuo Saturday
nftcrnoon to take action In regard to
raising tho Kauai quota ot tho Fourth
Liberty Loan and one or two other
The president reminded tho Cham
ber that about a year ago a committee
had been appointed to act in conjunct
Ion with a similar committee ot tho
Planters' Association in these matters.
Mr. Wishard suggested that this com
mittee bo reappointed to act In nil
such matters of war activity during
the present Chamber of Commerce
year, with tho understanding that a
now mcmbor bo appointed In place of
Mr. W. D. McBrydo, who was out of
the Territory and would not be able
to servo. Being put as a motion this
was carried, and the president named
Mr. P. A. Alexander for the vacant
place. Tho committee now consists
of Messrs Crawford, Brandt, Alex
ander, Wolters and Larson.
Tho treasurer presented the name
of Mr. John Naleimallo of Koloa for
membership. IIo was duly elected.
Tho president suggested that there
wore several matters which should
receive the early attention of tho
Chamber, among which wore deep
sea harbor selection and construction;
tho question of an Annual Territorial
Fair, and the surprising action taker!
by tho Forestry Commission in regard
to camping sites nnd summer outing
lots in the upland country back of
Waimoa. Gut as the time of tho pres
ent session was so limited, it would
J scarcely be feaslblo to take action on
them on this occasion.
Mr. Moragno forcoably expressed
his disapproval of the hold up prices
which had been placed on the Kokeo
lots. He said, "they were unreason
able and would result in keeping out
tho people who needed that sort of
outing tho most."
Mr. Lydgato suggested that there
were several important matters call
ing for tho early attention of the
Chamber, matters that could scarce
ly bo allowed to go over to the next
regular meeting in October. Accord
ingly ho proposed that a special meet
ing be called to deal with them at an
earlier date, to bo set by tho presi
dent. The president accepted this
suggestion and will act accordingly.
Mr. Brandt then introduced Mr.
McDlll, who was making a hurried
tour of tho Islands in tho interest of
the coming Y. M. C. A. drive to raise
a largo fund for war work.
Mr. McDlll is a pleasant and effect
ive speaker, easy and fluent as well as
direct and forceable. IIo spoke in
part as follows:
"Tho American military authorities
havo laid hands bodily on the Y. M.
C. A. They havo conscripted it as
they havo their armies. Tho moving
impulse- and tho ontiro policy of the
Y. M. C. A. is to help our soldiers
wherever, whenever and however It
can. It takes him from his home sur
roundings and follows him all along
tho lino until ho gets back to them
again. Y. M. C. A. secretaries or
ngents personally conduct the troop
trains and ships, and render assist
ance in ovory way they can. And that
this association is prized is shown by
such incidents as this: 'A Y. M. C. A.
man on the Pacific Coast just happen
ed to pick up a train of marines and
J traveled with them a few hours, re
turning to his home, in Southern Cali
fornia. Before the time came for him
to leave them, tho boys took up a col

Everywhere along tho line, both at

"In tho trenches tho Y. M. C. A

"In the matter of campaigns for
funds for tho Y. M. C. A. and similar
