Mr. Kent's warning may civo
liitn an opportunity in tlio far ilia
taut futuro to say "I told you so."
But it isn't warrantou by condi
tions thus far.
It is rather strange that tho first
ones to inako a row with tho Amo
rican military forcos should be
tho inou in tho ollicial forefront
asking for American control.
It is refreshing to seo tho high
political hand of tho Only Ones
called down. Tho peoplo hero

Undo Saru seems to bo a capable
Tho roason tho officials cannot
bold tho Executive building from
Presidont McKinloy, as thoy did
ngaiust Cleveland's orders, is that

pooplo bopan to talk "boom." To
day it stands as an ovidenco of
"Btoady growth." The Jndd block,
for instance, is not a speculation
in "futures." It is tho response- to
a marked demand. Tho timo was
when tho Quoon Hotel was spoken
of as an elephant on tho owner's
bauds. Is its occupation as a pub
lie ho8tolry,a boom product, or tho
rosult of steady growth in popula
tion and local business circles ?
Most cortainly tho latter.
Annotation has not brought
about boom values. Tho business
stability which it brings has, how
ovor, increased tho number of peo
plo holding thoir property. It has
unlocked thousands of dollars pre
viously held back for foar of "what
might happen." It has increased
tho desiro of peoplo to buy in, at
low pricos, property near tho cen
ter of town and on tho lino of pro
sent and futuro railway sysloms.
While- now conditions aro bring
ing into tho country a sharo of
that class who Book somothing for
nothing, tho honest settlor
with capital is also hero. Tho ex
travagant boom poriod experienc
ed iu tho Wcstorn States has not
been reached or oven approached
iu Hawaii. Noithor tho sugar or
tho real ostato men liavo mado ad
vances which tho presont progross
of tho isliimls docs not justify. It
may bo that sugar will tako a slump
and Honolulu will go to tho bow
wows, but there has yot to be any
good reason givon to justify a
mon. As civil authorities thoy aro
practically seeking to ombaraBS
tho men who havo como hero to
protect Amorican interests. Thoro
is neither justico or a scintilla of
courtesy in tho attitude of
tho Exocutivo, if thoy aro tho ones
supporting tho idiotic contentions
of tho Advertiser. It is uu-Ameri
can from start to finish and is
condemned by tho Amorican son
timont of Hawaii.
Tho establishment of a savings
bank by Bishop k, Co. will bo re
ceived with gonoral satisfaction.
This movo assuros an incomo to
tho peoplo who cannot find funds
to go into tho big deals that at
tract public attention, and fosters
a spirit that plays no small part
in tho wolfaro of tho territory.

Thoro is no question that Gen

It is a notable fact that the warn
ings that an unnatural boom is now
on iu local business affairs como
from organizations sacking to ob
tain lands and stocks at a prico bo
low tbo prseut markot value. The
men howling "boom" on tbo streets
aro f juud to bo mon having raouoj
in thoir puckots to buy up tho lauds
of tboiio thinking thoy ought to boll
before the "boom breaks."
That Hawaii is in tho midst of a
real ostato and stock boom hns yot
to be proved by facts and figures.
Tbo present high prices of stocks
are ruled by tho dividend capaci
ty of tho various corporations aud
the prospects of good corps. The
largo boldors, tbo mou on tbo in
side, aro not uuloading. Why? Bo
cause thoy can seo ahead for at least
two years the ability of tbo plan
tation managers to turn out good
crops that will assure sufliciout di
vidouds to mako good tho presont
stock prices. When Cuban and
Porto Itican sugars como on tbo
markot thoro may bo achango, but
it is easy to fitniro ahead for this
