INTER-ISLAND MAY PUT BIG
BOAT ON THE RUN TO HILO
Within a short time Hilo may
have another, steamer half as big
again, and swifter than the Mauna
Kea on the Honolulu run; further
more the interest of tho Inter-Island
Company in the Volcano House may
induce that company to take a hand
towrad building a hotel there large
enough and fine enough to copo with
tho traffic. These are the high lights
of what C. P. Morse, vice president
and assistant manager of the Inter
Island Company, told a representative
of the Post-Herald.
In the course of that interview Mr.
Morse said: "Tho Directors of the
Inter-Island Company, realizing that
the tourist and other traffic by the
S. S. Mauna Kea has outgrown the
capacity of that vessel. and being
desirous of encouraging by every
means in their power the development
of a large tourist traffic to the Island
of Hawaii, are now seriously considc
ing the construction, at an early date,
of a new vessel especially designed to
cater for such tourist traffic.
"While, plans have not yet been
drawn, it is the wish of the directors
to have a vessel at least half as largo
again as the Mauna Kea built with a
special eye to roominess, veutila
tion and comfort. It is probable that
she will have a greater speed than the
Muuka Kea, and she will be in every
way fitted for the typo of traffic she
will be called upon to handle. It is
expected that a further announcement
may be made very shortily, but the
directors of the Inter-Island Company
are keenly alive lothe Importance of
the rapidly developing tourist traffic,
and will exert every effort to provide
an adequate service to handle it."
Questioned as to whether there was
any possibility of the Muuna Kea
being placed upon the Kona run even
tually, Mr. Morse replied ho was not
in a position to look so far ahead.
It would depend entirely upon tho de
velopment of tourist and other travel
from and to that side of the island, but
he felt that under the working of the
interchangeable ticket a large in
crease of travel would be forthcoming
in time and was extremely sanguine
as to the future of that section of the
Mr. Morse, commenting upon the
occasional overcrowding of tho Vol
cano House in which the Inter-Island
Company is interested as a stock
holder, stated that the directors were
in close touch with Mr. George Ly
curgus, and stood ready to endorse
any plans he might eventually sub
mit for the enlargement or even re
building o the hotel.
"It is increasingly obvious." said
Mrl. Morse, "that we may look for a
heavy increase of patronage in tho
near future, as tho National Park
develops, and we should certainly
look for a method of providing ade
quate accommodation for visitors.
Mr. Lycurgus is fully cognizant of the
changes that are taking place in the
tourist travel to the Dig Island and
is in agrement with us us to the
necessity of making increased provi
sion to handle it. It is probable also
that he has similar plans for the en
largement of hotel facilities in Hilo,
and that the progressive pace now
being set by the Crescent City in the
form of new organizations such as
the Hotary and Golf Clubs will result
in greatly increased travel to Hilo
by the class of visitors who will desire
to remain in Hilo to enjoy the facili
ties for amusement tho city Is now
"I am very greatly impressed by
the showing of the past year, and
fully realize that our country will be
doing the right thing in making pro
vision for still greater developments."
SHURMANN WILL REOPEN
FIGHT FOR LOST CITIZENSHIP
Dr. F. H. Shurmann. whose citi
zenship was revoked by Judge
Horace W. Vaughan in the IT. S. dis
trict court here, because of alleged
disloyal utterances contained in his
pamphlet, "The War Through Ger
man Kyes," says that he intends to
leave shortly for Washington, where
he will seek to reopen the case in the
C. S. supreme court. A previous ap
peal carried from the decision hero to
tho U. S. circuit court of appeals in
San Francisco went against him.
