Honolulu, Jan. 15. In view" of
the unusual scarcity of tourists lor
this time of year a state of things
which Captain Houdlette of the
Sierra says is unprecedented Col.
Macfarlane bs written a letter of
inquiry to the agent at Los Angeles
of various local hotels and the inter
island steamship lines. Following
are extracts from this communica
tion: "If you have any suggestions to
offer at any time with regard to
pushing forward the work of pro
motion, we shall always be pleased
to consider same. You are located
right on the spot where the busi
ness of attracting tourists has been
carried to a very successful issue,
and you should therefore be in a
position to know how the thing
was done there, and what methods
vPfere found effective. The stream
of wealthy tourists which goes out
from all populous centers in the
United States seeking where they
may be entertained to their liking
is an ever increasing one, and the
opinion of the writer is that they go
for the most part, just where they
are influenced to go. We have at
tractions here which certainly com
pare favorably" with those of most
of the tourist resorts, and yet these
crowds of people do not come to us
in any numbers. They seem to
prefer other places. Can you ex
plain it? How did Los Angeles
manage to carry out the work of
promotion so effectively? Are we
adopting the same methods which
your people adopted, or are we
omitting anything whicli they
deemed essential? It is urged by
some that the steamer fares are too
high and the means of transit too
infrequent. No doubt it would
help us if rates were reduced and
greater regularity of service estab
lished. These are things which
weigh with a certain class, but not
with all, as there are crowds going
past us to Japan every year, and the
various resorts in the Orient are
thronged. What we want to do is
to ascertain the reasons why these
Islands are not attracting the tourist
class, and if we have not begun to
apply the proper remedy, to find it
and apply it without delay. We
should be glad to have your ideas
on this subject, as well as some ex
pressions of opinion as to whether
you think our promotion committee
are going to work the right way."

I'lnn Petition to Kuhio to Down
Honolulu Jan. 15. J. A. Mc
Candless, formerly Superintendent
of Public Works, was seen flying
about the streets today with a paper
in his hand. Close inquiry was
made and it was found that Mc
Candless, at the instance of the
opponents of county government,
was going the rounds of the business
men with a petition to Delegate
Kuhio that he drop the County Bill
matter where it is and allow the
obnoxious thing to relapse into
It goes without saying that some
of the business men will sign but
it also goes without saying that the
great majority will not sign. Al
man who knows what he is talking I
about said .this afternoon: "I do
not believe McCaudless will get a
dozen signatures. I know for a
matter of fact that the Administra
tion has not been informed of this
action on the part of the enemies of
the County Act. The Governor
does not know a thing about it and
it was only this morning that Sec
retary Atkinson sent a cable to De
legate Kuhio stating that the Ad
ministration urged the passage of
the County Act."
It is rumored on the streets this
afternoon that, as a result of action
taken by McCaudless and others,
another town meeting will be called
to protest against the action of
whomever McCaudless may get to
sign his petition.
The report in the "Coffee Shop"
of last week's Herald, purporting
to be a report of a conversation
over the telephone between myself
and S. Iy. Desha, was incorrect. It
contained several lies. I did not
change my mind on any proposi
tion discussed. It was stated by
Desha that if Kaeha was not favor
able to the Supervisors that Naai
kauna should have the place. Mr.
Desha understood that I favored
this, and I see no reason why he
should have misquoted me.
Now as to Naaikauua splitting
the Republican vote, I claim that
the editor of the Herald did more
harm to the Republican ticket than
any other man in the county. Our
precinct returns compare favorably
with the results elsewhere.
