AN OPPORTUNITY BEING LOST.
Why sonic enterprising person in
llilo. or capitalist elsewhere, doesn't I
slaita first class, up-to-date hotel
here, is the wonder of every tourist
who has seen the beauties about us
' and who has suffered the inconven -
iences of our present conditions,
A golden opportunity is afforded
the man who gets in first, for when
the conveniences for the tourist are
good and known to be good, then
will they begin to flock to our
shores. With beauti'ul scenery all
about us; immense opportunities
for scientifiq research on our out
skirts and with one of Natuics in
fernal machines within close prox
imity, there is ;io reason whv the
tourist should not linger in our
midst. An exploration of the,
burial caves of early Hawaiian
tunes; a trip through the sub-lava1
channel of the flow of 1881; or a
plunge into the maiden recesses of
the verdant tropical forests, are
subjects that would entertain the
average globe trotter if they were
only brought to his attention.
Now that llilo has a Board of
Trade,. whose interest it is to pre
mote the welfarevof the town, and
who will without doubt soon bring
to the attention of the public1, our
natural recourses as well as our
natural beauties, it is about time
that a hotel be started in order to
meet the exigencies of the tourist
trade that will nece.ssar.ily come.
We might remind tlie public that
there arc other sites in Hilo be
sides the present Hotel grounds and
there are other landloids besides
the Spreckels. There is consider
able available land that could be
utilized for hotel purposes a place
along the banks of the Wailuku, or
in the center of Putico or even on
Reed's Island. The man that
tarries too long will live to regret
it. It would also be within the
province of the Hoard of Trade to
place themselves in correspondence
with hotel capital or to use suitable
advertising in ilicitiug Eastern
OUR CHICAGO DELEGATES.
It is of course a matter of gital
regret to see the six Hawaiian dele
gates to the Chicago Convention,
who traveled at their own expense
some 4000 miles to represent the
Teiritorj in the deliberations of the
Republican Party, cut down in
their voting strength to the paltry
number of two.
There certainly must have been
a combination at work to have so
placed Hawaii on the shelf. We
are indebted to I he strong support
of Senator Koraker and also to the
i-liiuence of Chairman J. W. Mc
Kinley of the California Delegation,
its well as the plea made in open
Convention by our own Governor,
Geoigt- R. Carter, in having our
six delegates seated, even with only
)'h a vote each. As it was this
liberal concession only carried in
the Convention by a majority of
two. There's evidently n nigger in
the wood pile some where.
