vtk TEIRIT0RY 0F HAWAII i:JM
The following appfeciatlTe estimate
ot Hawaii as a ..Colony" of the Unit
ed States is from a Australian Jour
nal 1st Adam McCay. We take It front
the Literary Digest
Territorial development, to the
American mind, does not mean rough
without pioneering by men of strictly
means, who struggle on till their old
age without escaping the risk ot final
failure. They spend big money wkh
an almost unerring certainty that tho
it has been laid out lavishly it is
going to yield lavish returns. In the
establishment bf industries or in their
development In the Hawaiian Islands
there has been no sign of Investors or
colonlzersbeing satisfied with what is
second best. Honolulu is handsome
and modern, with Irst-rate roads and
up-to-date electric cars; It Is equipped
with light and power as tho it were
the first instead of one of the latest
of American cities. The factories.
which grow to bo huge in sitef have
the last apprtances in effective plant.
I don't know of any place in the
world where people, brown or white,
live more ' easily than In America's
two colonies in the Pacific. Salaries
are good for the white man and for
the white girl. Living is not costly In
either place. In Honolulu I met a
business man's secretary, a girl, whose
salary was 400 a year, and she could
live as cheaply as auy girl typist or
clerk in Sydney, A good stenographer
is hardly likely to recieve less than
the equivalent of 5 a week, and ehe
has a mighty pleasant ' time, because
tho Island is lovely, the social life is
happy, and the percentage ot automo
biles to population is -very high. Ha
waii is by weans a bad place to be
poor in, but it is hard to find any one
who has to be poor.
This condition is not brought about
by Government or anybody else spend'
Ing a whole lot ot money wastefully
and without return. The working pop
ulation of Hawaii does take a rake-off
from resident millionaires and from
free-spending tourists, but it makes
most ot Its money from the results of
its industry. One great fact in devel
opment which citizens of the United
States understand is that money spent
on essentials is bound to pay itself
back. A new city has got to have
proper light and water, and trams and
railways and roads, and well-built
streets, and recent telephones, and
substantial harbors, and warehouses,
and bridges. It can not go ahead fast
if it slommicks itself into a lot ot Chi
' When you look at Honolulu, with all
its beauties and Its conveniences, its
modern-paved streets, its handsome'
parks, its schools and playgrounds
for the children of many nations,'
please do not ask yourself, ''How could
the colony afford all these things?
Those are the things which pay for
themselves; not in the first five min
utes, maybe, but in the course of a
little time they always give back their
The population ot the Hawaiian Is
lands Is Japanes and Chinese and
Filipinos, and a good number of Por
tuguese, and some negroes, and the
American over all. The Japanese are
the most numerous individual section,
and they are not loved by any of the
others. For one thing, they suffer
from the uneasy truculence which has
been develop by their countrymen at
One learns from the common ple
beian of Hawaii that his unpleasant
friend, the Jap, is fond ot boasting
that before long he will own the is
lands.As a national boast this is ridi
culous. The suggestion ot Japan
stepping forward to offer violence to a
mighty giant like the United States is
wholly absurd; but the every-day Jap

For 20 years or more this natural
alloy was broken up in tthe smelting
into its ingredient parts because they
didn't realize that the combination in
its - natural tate was more valuable
than anything that could be made out
ot it by breaking up.
It can be easily understood that its
uses are manifold almost beyond num
bering where rust or corrosion cut
any figure. It is specially valuable in
these Islands where the atmosphere is
so heavily charged with the salt and
things rust so easily. As compared
with iron, of course it is expensive,
but it spells economy in the long run
and unquestionably it will be used
more and more..
