Tint desire of the members of the
Board of Trade for a greater mani
fest interest in its work on the part
of the public found voice at the
annual Mectine. The efforts of
such an organization as promotcis
of the public good, commercially
and otherwise, certainly ought to
have the support of every man who
has interest in the welfare of his
community. That a board of trade,
or similar organization, is important,
iu a necessity, indeed, in an am
bitious town, scarcely admits of
argument; it is a universally ad
mitted fact. On the mainland, from
cities down to aspiring towns, all
maintain such au organization. The
public is personified in the board,
in effect, if not always in fact, and
through it the public has voice and
action. In no city can this kind of
a public organization be more useful
than in Hilo. Our board is per
forming valuable service for this
community, and is a necessity here
for special reasons. The men who
have been serving on the board
have given not a little of their valu
able time to its work and as in
dividuals their service is recognjzed.
The Hilo board is broadly represen
tative of the business interests of
the place; all should unite in giving
it co-operation and support.
Tim fruit industry has had slow
growth on the island of Hawaii.
The iack of adequate shipping
facilities has hampered it and this
from no fault of the transportation
companies. Stcamcis do not come
where, there is no business for them
and, on the other hand, fruit will
not be produced where there is no
means in sight of getting it to
market. It will require a getting
together of producer and carrier to
make the business, and this may be
a slow, process of commercial
growth. The era of more rapid
development of the islands seems to
be at hand. With the moVe im
proved facilities for handling fruit
industry will take new life.
For the immediate future, money.
which is life blood of all business,
it is believed by those who have
been making the subject a study,
is to be made in canning the pine
apple. In this issue, the Triiiunb
publishes the conclusions of a long
time resident of the islands, which
have been reached after making an j
exhaustive and intelligent study of
At a recent meeting of Chinese
guilds and American merchants
held at Canton, China, twelve
changes in our exclusion law were
formulated, the granting of which
would, they thought, end the boy
cott on American goods in China.
Among these was this: "That
Chinese laborers should be admitted
into the Hawaiian and, Philippine
Islands, provided the local author
ities were willing." The Outlook,
New York, in this case as usually,
is in accord with the administration
view of the question. It says: "We
may well give immediate heed to
most of these demands: not to all,
certainly not to the one which con
cerns the admittance of Chinese
laborers to the Hawaiian and
Philippine Islands, a request which
'ignores the supremacy of the United
States over these insular posses
sions." The Outlook is wrong, in this
at least, in including the Hawaiian
Islands amongst the "insular posses
sions," for they are part and parcel
of the United States; their citizens
are voters and the islands have
been designated by an act of
Congress as the "Territory of

The chief topic occupying the

decided upon building.
l'Icn for Defense of tho Islands.
It is sincerely to be hoped that
the present session of Congress may
witness some practical action look
hig to the development of our naval
and military defenses in the Ha
waiian Islands. One project which
is specially urgent is the dredging
of Pearl Harbor, which, in the
nature of things, is destined to be
come one of our most important
naval bases hi the Pacific Ocean.
The required improvement of Pearl
Harbor has already been too long
neglected, and should receive im
mediate attention if we are to re
tain our naval prestige in the
Pacific and gain our proper propor
tion of the crowiuc commerce of
those waters. Lying midway be
tween our Western seaboard and
the Philippines, Hawaii occupies a
position of extraordinary import
ance to naval and commercial inter
ests in the Pacific. Properly forti
fied and provided with a naval base
capable of affording shelter, repairs
and supplies for our warships, Ha
waii would be a powerful factor in
the whole system of national de
fense, but if Oahu is left undefended
it would be a source of weakness
rather than of strength, offering an
attractive invitation to attack from
the enemy's fleet.
Pearl Harbor is peculiarly adapt
ed to the needs of a great naval
base, and with the proposed im
provements it will be one of the
most important:, strategic outposts
in the Pacific. The first need is to
dredge the harbor, and that should
be done without further delay. The
dredging of the harbor of Hono
lulu at a cost of $400,000 is now
approaching completion, and wheu
it is finished the three big dredges
in use there will be available lor
similar service at Pearl Harbor, so
that it will be possible to do the
work without having to buy a new
and costly outfit. Lieut. Commander
Albert P. Niblack, U. S. N., in
charge of the naval station at
Honolulu, is deeply interested in
the proposed improvement of Pearl
Harbor, and has labored most zeal
ously to enlist official interest In the
project. He believes, as do other
careful students of the situation,
that our future, in a naval as well
as in a commercial sense, is bound
to center largely in the Pacific, and
so believing, he feels, as do all our
officers, that enlightened self-inter-estrequirestheprompt
development of our defenses in Ha

From a letter addressed to Gormau
D. Gilmau of Boston, by Governor
Ctrtcr, treating of labor and finan
cial conditions in Hawaii, and made
public, the following extracts are
"So far as immigration is con
cerned, I am not yet convinced but
that there may be a solution to it
withoiit the necessity of congress
ional action. There are a few here
who arc mincing every enorivio
, . . rp . .
work out their own solution. Tuts
would be far more simple if only
our immigration laws were con
strued to permit the Territory itself
to assist in securing people from
some foreign country who could
become citizens. How can we in
crease the population of these
islands and thus develop them, iso
lated as they arc In the middle of
the Pacific Ocean, without provid
ing the means of transportation."
"As these islands are an integral
part of the Union, they arc subject
to all laws passed by Congress, and
our Federal legislative machinery
is of such magnitude that it is al
most impossible to make Congress
realize that tropical conditions in
Hawaii require that she be excepted
and exempted from the operation of
many laws which are passed, with
sound reason, to meet conditions
which exist on the mainland. And
if success is to crown American con
trol of Hawaii, these facts must not
be lost sight of, and as she can not
for some time be admitted as a
state, then she must have, because
of her unique position, special leg
islation from time to time "
"Hawaii's main industry and her
principal source of wealth is the
production of sugar, aud from the
wealth so obtained she has in the
past secured the means for Iter
progress and advancement.
Whether wisely or not, she built
up on industrial system by using
the machinery ( brains and capital
of the Occident in combination with
labor from the Orient, and sh&Jus
tifies such a course by pointing 'p
the fact that no other ttopje 1
country in 'so short' dperioVt u
time has made such a record."
"Unless an increase of population
can be obtained from some source,
the excess of departures over ar
rivals among the Orientals will sap
the foundations of our industrial
"Thus the first thing needed is a
modification of our immigration
laws by which ve can in some way
build up the population of these
islands and re-enforce the supply of
labor that is now slipping away

High Sheriff Henry will sum
marily discharge the jailor at Wai
alua, who was absent from duty
and intoxicated when he was
wanted in the Johnson murder case.
When Johnson was arrested for the
killing of the little Wharton boy
the jailor was not to be found at his
post of duty and there was no one
to look after the prisoner. Investi
gation showed that he was out
with a jag negotiating for more
booze on credit.
"I regard that as good and suffi
cient reason for a summary dis
charge," said the high sheriff this
morning, "and the jailor will have
to go. It is very difficult to get
men who are fitted for such posi
tions as that of jailor."
