"We nave formulated a new scheme and

We did not make a deal with Messrs

"To show how certain it is that the pres

Peck, "I need only say that I cabled n

"I will say, however," continued Mr.
Peck, "that a new ditlicully has arisen in

A Thing Needful.
Diir'niu the past week several different
private citizens have received letters of
inquiry from people in the States relative
to onnorlunltics for investment on the
Island of Hawaii. Some of these inquiries
are from men Having SJS.ooo to invest.
A proper organization in the city of Hilo
should be elfectcil at once to follow up
Midi inquiries with the necessary infor
mation. A Hoard of Trade with a paid
Secretary ought to be established here.
The usefulness of such an organization
would grow apace after oucc the wheels
were set in motion. A Ilureau of system
atic publicity for Hilo and Hawaii would
well repay the business men of the city.
Wiiliikoii Mission Concert.
The concert to be.giveu for the benefit
of the Waiakeu Mission will occur at
Waiakca, at a date undecided. The
ladies in charge have provided what
promises to be one of the most interest

program will be largely musical. The
Waiakca pupils are being trained and
will render choruses. The best local
vocal and instrumental talent will also be
on the program. The proceeds of the
entertainment will be devoted to the pur
chase of books for the mission library.

I, Kricksou, who has been in the Ha
waiian Islands for thirty years and who
has followed the carpenter trade with
success, Is thoroughly aroused over the
outlook for those who follow his trade.
In an interview with a TriiiUNK reporter,
Mr. Kricksou said: "I think there is
nothing for white mechanics to do, but
to ieave the country. We must emigrate
unless conditions change and change
quickly. White mechanics have had
practically nothing to (to lor ten mounts.
The work Is all going to Japanese. And
lu my opinion this accounts for dull
times In business. The Japs are taking
money from the whites and spending it
with themselves. If white labor was
getting this money it would go back to
the white merchant.
"I have recently figured on four jobs.
The Japs went under me every time,
althoucli I cut everything down to the
lowesunotch and figured tny own work
at 50 cents a day. I tell you a Nvhitc
man who works must make arrangements
for something to do prettv soon or buy a
ticket for a land where Japs can't be
found to underbid him."

Saturday night is for mechanics only.
All carpenters, brick ami stone masons,
