CAPT. J. A. KINO.
Honolulu to-day pays its trib
ute of respect to tbo memory of
the lato James A. King whose
yeaia of activity in business life
won for him tbo high placo given
tho honest man and whoso official
career was over tbat of a faithful
trusted servant of tho people.
Captain King was a bard workiDg
man whoBO highest aspiration
was fulfilled in doing bis duty at
a citizen and an official. Person
ally bo did not seek preferment by
a play of politicsvbut he was never
found to shirk a responsibility,
peraonal or official when called
upon to act in any capaoity.
Gapt. King's education in deal
ing with men and affairs waB
gained in tbo harsh experience
that falls to the lot of men who
in early life are forced to shift for
themselves. He dealt witb con
ditions not theories; gauged bis
ways by a keen knowledge of hu
man nature, a knowledge tbat
gives Bcant recognition to the the
orizors. He was not a leader in
tbo usual acceptance of the term,
nor did ho seek to force bis
opinions on unwilling minds, but
his counsels wero often sought
and hold in high estoom by reason
of their postivo straightforward
Whether friends doserted him
or not Copt. King kept on in his
own qaiet, postivo way indifferent
to chicanery of enemies bdcI al
lowing bis aonstant faithfulness
to speak for itself.
McKINLKY'0 WK8TBBN TIUP.
President McKiuIey's western
trip bas been marked by an en
thusiastic welcome from tbo peo
ple all along the line. Though the
calamity howlers have exerted
their most calamitous howl to em
barass tho nation and desparago
the patriotic effort of the Presi
dent, the greeting accorded tho
chief executive, rings true with
confidence in the statesmanship of
the man and honest support of the
national policy which ho bas
Nor have the threats of anti-imperialists
and other traitors to the
nation end its flag caused the Pre
sident to lose confidence in tho will
of the people that no responsibili
ties thrust upon the nation shall
bo shirked and in no part of tbo
globe shall onr flag represent a
hallow and unpatriotic policy.
Wo find the President reiterating
-with renewed foroe the principles
which marked bis words during
the notable trip following tbo
Spanish war. In tho bailiwick
whore Bryan, in two hours of
forensic display sooght to create
calamity from progress the Presi
dent voiced the popular sentiment
" Tho bum of industry has
drowned tbo voico of calamity,
and tbo voice of dospnir ib no
longer beard in tbo Unittd States,
and tho orators without occupa
tion here aro now looking to the
Philippines for comfort. As wo
opposed them when they wero
standing against industrial pro
gress at home, wo oppoeo them
now, as tbey are standing against
national dutj , in our island pos
sessions in tbo Pacific."
Again tt the great Chicago ga-
thering tho President said: "You
have not only been my friends,
faithful and unfaltering at all
times, but, what is of more mo
mont and what is much nobler,
yon bavo been at all times faithful
to your country, true to the invio
lability of public faith, standing
always for honest government and
honest money and forever stand
ing for the honor and integrity of
thb flag wherever it floats, carried
by our soldiers or our sailors on
land or on sea."
The onemy finds its greatest
pleasure in cresting a meaning
loss flag and placing a low esti
mato upon tho loyal support of
patriotic principle, but they hear
no answering echo of tboir trai
torous sentiments w tbo words or
acts of Presidpnt McKinley.
ADVANTAGES OF THE CANAL
8aD Franoisco,October 5. Com
mander B. H. McCalla, United
States Navy, wbo brought the
United States steamship Newark
around the Horn, has just answer
ed a series of nine questions ask
ed by tho Chamber of Commerce,
thrnnuh its vice-president, George
A. Nowball, on matters of vital
intnrost to promoters of tho Nica
ragua canal. Tho information
sought through this medium cov
ers tho length of the trip and the
cost under tho present and possi
ble faturo conditions
After stating tbat the Newark
in making the trip from Now York
t San Francisco traveled 16,086
miles, and tbat it was estimated
that could the vessel bavo come by
the Nicaragua canal, 8070 miles
would have been saved, Com
mander McCalla added that the
coal consumed amounted to 4187
tons, and tbat 211b tons might
have been saved by the other
route. Ho showed that nothing
would have been saved in labor,
as all the men were enlisted for a
period ef years, and that tho daily
pty of the ship's complement was
$388.02, In answor to a sweeping
question as to the entire amount
whioh could bavo been saved had
the canal been open, Commander
" I do not see that any allow
ance for a war Bhip is necessary,
since it ought to make a very
slight difference, whether sho
steamed a long distance or a short
distance, if the boilers and engines
were in good condition when the
ship started and if tbo officers and
men were officient. I beg leave to
add tbat, from a military point of
view, the possibility of re enforc
ing the fleet in the Pacific or At
lantic by units from one or the
other is of the greatest import
anco, and as the canal would en
able us to more quickly re-enforce
tbe Jfaoino or Atlantic fleet, suuti
a waterway would enable us to
rest satisfied with a smaller Navy
than would bo required without a
" Tho value to tbe United States
of such a canal as the one propos
ed across Nicaiagua cannot be es
timatod in dollars, because tbe
absence of snch a means of com
munication may easily mean de
feat with sad and humiliating
consequences. Un tbe ground
alone of Bound naval policy the
canal should already have been
in operation, and before national
interests, those of corporations,
perhaps largoly imaginative, are
" To point tbe moral we mnst
consider the longth of time whioh
the battleship Oregon was com
pelled to take in re enforcing tbe
Atlantic fleet in 1898. Wa must
also realize the undoubted and
very great advantage whioh tho
Suez Canal affords to Great Bri
tain in her communication with
her Indian Empire; and the in
creased strength which Germany
Kossesses in being able to unite
er Baltic and North Sea fleets in
eighteen hoars by means of tbe
