ThntoMlnnnll Described und Scion
" Katnelmraeha," the correspon
dent of the Washington Star
from Honolulu, in a recent letter
has the following explanation of
Hawaii's equable and temperate
"So, as you know, Hawaii has ex
traordinary attractions to draw
tourists, and they are beginning to
pour in upon us, so that we arc
being put to our best energies to
provide quarters and transportation
for them. But the greatest attrac
tion of all, when understood, h
bound to be Hawaii's unique and
marvelous climate. It is not yet
commonly understood that we pos
sess the only climate of the kind on
this globe. It is not a tropical
climate, but mildly and uniformly
subtropical. We never have torrid
heats, nor ever have chill weather,
except at high altitudes. Your
summer nights in Washington and
New York are simply terrible to us
from Hawaii, where we never
know such a thing as a sweltering
night and generally need a blanket
on the bed all summer. While
there is a difference between our
winter and summer, it is very
moderate. In Honolulu between
January 1 and April 1 the mercury
ranges between an extreme mini
mum of 52 degrees and maximum
of 78 degrees. Between August 1
and November 1 the extremes of
the mercury are 70 degrees and 88
degrees. Please to observe that
our summers and winters are each
a full month later in the year than
elsewhere in the northern hemis
phere. Now, ior each of these pe
culiar facts there is a definite reason
growing out of very singular ocea
nic conditions which do not exist
elsewhere on the globe. I will ex
plain them, begging close attention,
because our rare climate may seem
"It is a well-established fact, re
peated in all the night school geo
graphies, that the coasts of Oregon
and California are constantly wash
ed by a copious cold current of be
tween 35 and 40 degrees. This
remarkable current maintains a
constant extreme coolness through
the whole summer for many miles
inland, so that overcoats are a neces
sity in San Francisco summer after
noons, ana iyos Angeles enjoys
constant summer coolness. This
singular summer climate of the
Pacific coast is unknown elsewhere
on tho. globe just as the Hawaiian
climate is, and from the same cause.
For that peculiar cold ocean cur
rent turns to the southwest and
drifts down to Hawaii, cooling our
otherwise torrid climate. That It
does so drift is proved by the fre
quent deposit of trees and sawlogs
on the eastern side of our island
borne from the forests of the Paci
fic coast. The velocity of this cur
rent is probably about twenty
miles a day, so that it is between
three and four months in reaching
Hawaii. Of course, it absorbs con
siderable heat from the sun during
its long summer passage, but it is
still cool water when it reaches us,
and very greatly reduces the nor
mal heat of our tropical latitude.
With an ocean temperature around
us ranging probably 55 to 75 degrees
at different seasons of the year, it
is impossible for Hawaii to share
the unvarying torrid heats of islands
to the west, where the sea is be
tween 80 and 95 degrees all the
year. Neither the East nor the
West Indies know any such cli
mate as ours. These are the veri
table Fortunate islands, cool and
"And why are both winters and
summers pushed backward more
than a whole month? This is simply
because our friendly cold current
is so much behind time in arriving
here. In early summer it has
failed to get duly warmed up on its
passage, having set out in March,
while winter cold still prevailed.
In early winter also it still brings
some of the sunshine of the August
where it started. In actual fact
Hawaii for climate is a colonial
dependency of the Pacific coast as
it has lately become politically a
dependency of Uncle Sam's dom
inion. "The coasts of Oregon aud Call;

never has a hurricane, and rtlr'ly d
really severe gale. Yet "typhoons'1
every season scourge the seas of
China and Japan. Hurricanes
smite the Caroline aud South Sea
Islands in the central Pacific, aud
occasionally one rages two or three
thousand miles east of us. But all
of these nearer seas are exempt:
they are of the true Pacific, as they
gave its name.
"This gift of sweet, gentle cli
mate is Hawaii's best asset-better
than scenery or volcano. This
true "paradise of the Pacific," with
hir eolddu days and balmy nights,
wlnningly invites America's child
ren who are ever wrestling with
sweltering summers and withering
winters. Your climate may give
the strenuous vigor; in Hawaii is
comfort aud rest. Come and try it."

SPECIAL ATTENTION IS CALLED TO THE FACT THAT
CUMMKNT UN UOKKY.
Russians Think Amcrlnius Are
Much interest has been aroused
in St. Petersburg by the cabled ac
counts of Maxim Gorky's fall in
public estimation in the United
States on account of the disclosures
of the fact that the woman who ac
companied him to New York was
not Mme. Gorky, but the actress,
Many Russians, among whom
quite a different code of morals is
accepted from that which prevails
in the United States, seem incapable
of comprehending the American
point of view, and there is much
surprise at what is regarded as the
intolerance of Americans. This is
especially the case in revolutionary
circles, and particularly among the
students, who, in the battle for free
dom, went from one extreme to the
other, regarding liberty as emanci
pation from all legal restraint.
Maxim Gorky has reason to be
bewildered at his reception in Am
erica. Jtie was heralded as a revolu
tionary. He was known to hold
revolutionary opinions upon ques
tions of government and equally
unconventional views upon social
questions. His domestic arrange
ments were an open secret.
Americans are right in 'reverenc
ing the marriage institution. The
family is the basis of the republic
and the unit of society. But it is
too firmly intrenched, too strongly
guarded, to be successfully assailed
by one revolutionary agitator or en
dangered by free speech and fair
play. New York World.
