People of Hawaii havo been
busy saying that this is no Okla
homa and now they seek to make
themselves believe they did not
speak advisodly. Thoy did speak
advisedly, howover. Hawaii has a
solid business basis to built on
Aud tho industrial structure has
by no means reached a rangnitado
whero thoro is danger of the thing
toppling ovor. Sugar may go
down, labor may po up, but those
who say this will happen have no
more to baeo their assertions on
than thoso who assert the rovorsc.

who have shown capacity for
moetiog serious depressing condi

cause for a lack of coufulenco in
tho commorcial and financial pro
gress of the territory.

One hundred thousand tons of

the part of wisdom both by the
