ToIUInI HtlslllPM I'll) Hi
"Tourist business to Hawaji has
added nearly $150,000 a month to
the circulating medium in and
about Honolulu and the islands in
general. Another year the Promo
tion Committee hopes to see this
increased to $300,000 or even
That statement, made by Secre
tary Wood of the Promotion Com
mittee at a recent meeting, will
bring to the realization of those
persons not accustomed to watch
passing events with close attention
a fact that is perfectly well under
stood in those communities which
have been accustomed to profit by
the exploitation of their attractions
x'or the visiting stranger.
The touristy business does pay.
Witness the case of Ios Angeles,
which has grown within the mem
ory of men now living, and not old,
from a small Mexican pueblo of
adobe houses to a large commercial
city, with railways radiating to all
points and with all those things in
its hands which make cities great.
Santa Barbara, ten years ago, was
a mission village with beautiful
surroundings, a fine climate, and
perhaps three thousand people
most of them too sleepily inatten
tive to passing things to take much
heed of whether the world moved
or whether it did not. The South
ern Pacific railway wanted a tourist
point, and selected Santa Barbara
where, when the sleepy people did
awaken in the old days, it was
only long enough to put up the pe
tition, "Give us this day our daily
stranger." Santa Barbara was ad
vertised, and it is a thriving city of
12,000 now, and does a lot of scien
tific promotion work on its own
San Diego, when the Southern
California boom collapsed, was
looked upon as hopelessly dead, as
a city and yet under the stimulus
of promotion, San Diego is begin
ning to revive.
The tourist business pays. Not
a doubt of it. The mercantile com
munity of Honolulu has exper
ienced it actually within the past
few weeks, and will have more ex
perience of it as time goes on and
the results of work now being done
become apparent in the coming of
strangers. Honolulu has more
capital to trade upon, too, than
many a "mainlaud city that has
grown great through the tourist
business. Even the handicap of
distance from the centers of popu
lation, which is the chief difficulty
to be overcome in inducing tourists
to come here, will cease to be a
bugbear in time. And the ocean
voyage southerly is of itself, an at
tractive thing to many people.
The time is soon coming when
the tallest structure on earth built
by the hands of man, will be a New
rYork sky-scraper. The Sincer
manufacturing company will now
build a square tower at the corner
of Broadway and Liberty street, 40
stories high, and this will be 40 feet
taller than the Washington monu
ment, and about 80 feet taller than
the spires of the Cologne cathedral.
Only one structure on earth will
still o'ertop this new building, and
that is the Eiffel tower. A structure
in New Nork higher than the Paris
showpiece will surely arrive at an
early day, and then there will be
nothing to do but build something
higher than the Himalayas.
The first high building in Havana
and Cuba is now being erected by
the National bank of Cuba, at Cuba
and Obiaspo streets. It is a six
story building and called a sky
scraper. The wise old building
laws there have not permitted
structures of over three or four
stories, but in some way permission
was becured by which the additional
hight was allowed. A letter from
Havana says: "It is the first of
the large buildings of the American
style, and marks a new era in
Cuba." It is to be hoped not. It
would be a great mistake for the
Cuban capital to permit its building
regulations to be changed or over
ridden. -Springfield Republican.

Keeping Tab on Kilnurn.
While the crater of Kilauea is
indulging in its rather undignified
periginatious, it cannot escape the
watchful eye of the Territorial Sur
vey Department, which for years
past has been keeping an eye on
"There is no doubt but that the
crater of Kilauea is moving," said
Surveyor General Wall. "This is
caused by the fact that the crater is

constantly crumbling down on the

compiled at various times and by
comparison of which the wander
ings of the crater could be figured
out. It is thus shown by compar

Dodge, with the assistance of Mr.
Wall, in 1892, and the latest map
of the crater, made by E. D. Bald

period the crater has moved about
The Kapapala land certificate, by
which a certain tract of land was
given to the Bishop Estate, in its
description of its boundaries has
the following reference:
"Thence east 5,140 feet to the
south lake of the crater of Kilauea,
The "thence" refers to a trig.
station on one side of the crater,
and as there is a similar station on
the other side of it, the Survey De
partment can keep track of the
wanderings of the lake by the
means ot these two fixed poiuts.
Mr. Wall does evidently not take
much stock in the contention that
as the lake, being a boundary
mark, moved along to the south
ward, tue boundaries of the Bishop
Estate lands move with it.
"That is a question of law,"
said Mr. Wall; "but a bull roving
about on a field would not be
thought much of as a boundary
Uhlnn Only for Chinese.
A Chinese boy born in the Ha
waiian Islands and educated, of
course, in the public schools, went
to China about two years ago at the
direction of his father to obtain a
Chinese education. The young
writes to his teacher here that he is
anxious to come back to Honolulu.
China may be all right for some
people, he says, but not for Hono
lulu people and they wouldn't want
to live there any more than he does.
"China is only good enough for
Chinese to live in," he concludes.
The little fellow has evidently be
come thoroughly Americanized.
