It is not enough that the dust is removed from the -wheat,

We are pleased to print below in
full an article nppeating in the
Honolulu Kvening Hulk-tin, under
dale of June nth upon the success
ful work of the citizens of S.in
Diego, Cnl., in promoting their
city's interest and calling attention
to the opportunities which confront
us in Hawaii:
Business organizations able to
pave the way to and work out
original schemes are a most valu
able a-set for any community. To
do this requires a lively, united
community sentiment, men who
don't knock the proposals of others
because the originator may possibly
get a little more credit than those
who assist in carrying out his idc.i.
Failing in the promotion of
pioneer plans for the upbuilding of
a town there is a fund of examples
to draw upon that will put a spring
in the business boot-heel and phue
cities in the way of working out a
very acceptable salvation. Honolulu
(like Ililo) is a city of men and minds
that dwell variously on what should
he done. It does a good many
things but the sum total of civic ac
complishments .seem rather small,
sometimes insignificant and the
spirit of community action trem
endously weak when compared
with sister American cities with
less natural opportunity.
Getting together and working
for the town is a sentiment that ,js
growing throughout the whole
country. The hustling West did
much to start things moving but it
is echoing back to the Kast with
very good effect. In the tourist
business, for instance, we now find
Maine and Massachusetts, staid
old communities, going out into
the field as keen after the summer
business as California is ,for the
winter travellers. It is the Cham
bers of Commerce, the business
organizations of wideawake men
that areaccomplishiug these things,
organizations that furnish the ex
amples for Honolulu to follow un
til in the glory of our progress we
find that we have outstripped the
How one city has gone ahead is
briefly told in a recent issue of the
San Francisco Call, which gives an
account of some things the San
Diego Chamber of Commerce has
done. The life of the city has
been largely dependent in the bus
iness ginger this organization has
put into it. San Diego has climate,
it has harbor problems, it has had
booms like, worse indeed, than
Hawaii. San Diego had a harbor
which it wanted the Federal Govern
ment to improve. The business
men first put out a good sum of
their own money making dredging
tests. Then they did not sit down
and wail because Congress did not
appreciate the value of this water
way. They set to work in a bus-nc-s-like
way convincing Congress
that the improvement was worth
the price lo the nation and San
No modern city is complete with
out good sized and improved puk
areas. San Diego secured 1400
acres for thisptirpo.se and the first
thing the Chamber of Commerce
did was to call on the people to sub
scribe for its improvement. Popular

ian Yacht Club of Sun Diego to be !
raced for by the thirty footers of
the Pacific Coast. It was necessary
for Sun Diego to have yachts to
complete for the trophy as the
yacht club had none capable of pro
tccliug it. Leaders of the Chamber
of Commerce got up a syndicate
and bought a yacht becnusc the
races Would be an attractive thing
for the city nnd help the town.
Some Chambeis of Commerce
would nave nervous prostration or 1
an apoplectic fit at the suggestion l
of their leading members doing any
thing so frivolous. Their cities 1
don't go ahead; S.in Diego does.
1 nese casual items Iroin the re
eoid of the San Diego Chamber of
Commerce are examples that any
city and particulatly Hawaii can
consider with profit. The town
that is always waiting to do politics
to get public improvements wait
ing forsome otlmr fellow to go
ahead and do all the work or none
of it, talking well but still waiting
that town drags along at the tail
end of the procession while the
people whose interest in their sur
roundings, whose civic pride exists
in fact, not solely on piper re
putation, goes ahead. Honolulu
has splendid opportunities. It can
move forward as rapidly as any
city, Hast or West, if itspeople will
hustle in the same. style.

The following extract taken from
an article appearing in the issue of
Sunday's Advertiser, of June 12th,
from the editor's pen, will be found
amusing if not truthful. But since
the habit of exaggeration has be
come chronic with the Advertiser,
little less can be expected:
Ililo! For insomnia take Hilo.
As a cure for wakefulness it is
equal to a life-membership in the
Honolulu Chamber of Commerce.
I watched the stores slowly open
late one morning as if the owners
had gone, like the galley-slaves,
unwillingly to their tasks. The
ice which, in some occult way had
found a man to deliver it early, lay
011 the sidewalk melting at the
rate of a cent a pound. A horse
stood in the street awhile and then
fell down, while I waited to see if
he would curl up and purr himself
to sleep. (It was in Hilo where
Ross Browne made his famous re
mark that he never saw but one
Hawaiian doing anything and he
was falling off a house.) Along
about it a. in. I entered a store on
the main-street to make a small
purchase and was reminded of the
man who went into an Arkansaw
grocery for a squart of molasses.
The Arkansaw merchant got up
slowly and then sat down, shaved
off a chew of tobacco and droned
out, "Say ain't there no other place
in this ycr town Where you can get
those molasses?" Kven the Chi
namen who have brought the
blight of Asia to Ililo s principal j
street are drowsy and so must, be
the mosquitoes, for I didn't see
but one and and he was so tired he
could hardly present his bill. In a
