For The Times
(Continued from page 2)
which to observe much, because a
thing they absurdly call wind seizes
you, . and if you are not hanging on
to the iron railing thoughtfully fit
ted to the rockaide for the purpose,
you will be flung on your face and
tossed like a dead leaf Into the Be
yond. It In, of course, no wind, but
a devil of much potency.
It is the most staggering business.
The wind we will humor them by
calling It so comes at you like Ni
agara. It Is solid, irrestible. And It
never ceases, day or night, some
times raging more furiously than at
others, but always, as I said main
taining an adequate supply of gales
for the rest of the world.
After a few minutes you are able
to regain some control of yourself
you feel like a flag in a hurricane
and you cautiously crawl to the edge
of this, one of the strangest places
in the world. The cliff falls sheer
down to a plain rich in fields and
gay with houses, a counterpart of
what you have left. Beyond these
lies, in limitless expanse, the blue
Pacific, studded with islands. Be
low you, both before and behind, Is
peace; but on the knife-edge to
which you cling live, as I said, . all
the devils of the winds. The caves
of Aelous were sitting-out places for
delicate dancers compared to this
A Flowery Road.
It was over this fearful place that
nearly 130 years ago.: Kamehameha
the Great, the invader from the sou
thern island of Hawaii, drove head
long the remnant of the defending
army of Kalani, King of Oahu, so
establishing his dynasty over all the
islands. Grisley relics of the Oahu
warriors who made their last stand
around their king here at the head
of the pass have been found at the
foot of the cliffs, far below, within
Then comes the long slow slide
down the flowery road back to town;
and I had more time now to look a
bout and make sure that I was not
dreaming. I would like to tell you
of all the trees and flowers, but how
is one even to catalogue them here?
Crotons and polyganums and . dru
cena. alamanda, bignonia, asters,
plumbago, gladioli and gardenias;
oleanders and hisblscus; palms ' and
bamboos, papyrus, algaroba (el car
ob, and so-called pepper-rees); bou
gainvillean poinsetta, splendid poln
ciana, "Golden Rain" like monstrous
laburnums; mangoes and breadfruit
trees, bananas, pawpaws, guava and
pineapple: the list is endless, and
the glory of them bewildering. Thru
an unspoiled jungle, wild but with
the tidy wildness of rhododendrons
in a park, the road runs, a perfect
surface of tarred macadam. It is the
only thing which (such is your im
pression) gets any attention. The
rest seems to be just there of its
own or nature's will.
And so we dropped back into gay
little Honolulu, with its Japanese,
Chinese and the rest of them. I must
not forget the tall American sol
diers and white-capped sailors. When
I think of India, Egypt, Gilbralter,
and other places where our soldiers
and sailors are and have been stand
ing to attention for many long years,
I rejoice that Uncle Sam is, to use
his own expression, coming into the
We do our share, and more besides.
LABOR RELIEF BILL
WILL BE APPROVED
Frank Baldwin, upon his arrival
from the mainland expressed confi
dence in the passage of the Hawaii
an labor relief measure. He said:
The bill will pass by and by ac
cording to what people say in New
York and Washington. In discussing
the .project with business men In
the east, I listened to comments that
you people in Hawaii have accomp
lished the impossible. You have made
everybody In the United States see
the logic of your situation and I am
convinced that we are going to get
what we went after,
Baldwin continued by saying that
the future of the sugar industry de
pends udou the outcome of the
Washington conference. It it is suc
cessful, he says the sugar Indus
try will swell with all other Indus
tries and if it falls, then nobody
