1. In considering the possible parti
cipation of Havvnll in the Louisiana
Purchase Exposition, let us noto first
the real extent of this mighty Inter
national undertaking. Without ex
aggeration It can be said that it will
surpass the Columbian Exposition at
Chicago In 1S93 nnd the Tarls Exposi
tion of 1900. As we measure a financial
enterprise by the actual money Invest
ed, we likewise recognize the magni
tude of the St. Louis World's Fair by
the money that will tunc been expend
ed when Its gates arc opened. It Is a
conservative estimate that over $23,
000,000 will represent tho actual cost
when tho President of the I'nltcd States
shall set its vast machinery In motion,
That I am warranted In this obser
vation, I would nsk jou to keep In
mind these figures: The United States
Government appropriated by Act of
Congress 13,000,000; Congress lias Just
appropriated $1,GOO,000 more for build
ings and exhibits, making $0,300,000 tho
share of the central Government; tho
city of St, Louis has Issued bonds for
(3,000,000; the Louisiana Purchase Ex
position Company has Issued stock for
$5,000,000; the State of Missouri has
appropriated $1,000,000; the Philippine
Government has formally decided to
spend $300,000; Stntes and Territories,
according to legislative action already
taken or surely forecasted, will expend
over $2,000,000; foreign governments
will appropriate not less than $1,000,
000; concessions will exceed $1,000,
000. This makes a gtaml total In ex
cess of what was expended at Chicago
by several millions and nearly double
the cost of the Paris Exposition. An
Impressive Idea of the physical size
of the Exposition ran bo gained when
It is remembered that the grounds will
cover ocr 1000 acres, or 400 more than
wero occupied nt Chicago, The direct
frontage of the grounds In Forest Park,
St. Louis, will be ocr one mile.
Can Hawaii Afford It
2. The question now arises; Can Ha
waii afford to be represented on a
small scalo at such a World's Fair as
that to bo held In St. Louis? If she
should fall to do her part she would
bo the only one of the outlying pos
sessions of the United States without
worthy representation. The Philip
pine government at Manila, recogniz
ing tho Inestimable alue to those isl
ands of n comprehensive participation
which vs 111 Impress the people of tha
United States with tho resources and
possibilities of the Islands, has deter
mined to Increase Its original appropri
ation of a quarter of a million to a
halt million. As Governor Tnft said
! to me: "We Intend to make the peopln
of the United States go to St. Louis tn
sec the Philippine exhibit alone, Wn
win cilucato tho country nt largo
thiougli an exhibit that will astonish
every one who sees It."
Porto Rico has taken the bull of Its
own poverty by the horns and wilt
raise n large fund among Its lending
business Interests by subscription, tn
be supplemented by an appropriation
of Its Legislature. The Porto Hlcnns
are convinced thnt St. Louis affords
them nn unparalleled opportunity tn
educate the people of tho interior of tho
United States on the importance of re
specting the Interests of their llttln
Island. Cuba, not ours technically, but
ours morally nnd in spirit, has, through
President Palma, announced that It will
be creditably represented nt St. Louli
if It takes the last dollar In the treas
ury. Kcn little Guam and Tutulla out
here In tho Pacific arc going to parti
cipate in this vast competition of States
Hawaii's Direct Advantage.
3. What will be the direct advantage
to Han nil Is next to be noted. The St.
Louis World's Fair will gle Hawaii
her first opportunity under tho new
rcglmo of annexation to show herself
to the rest of the United States In her
true light. It will enable her to con
vince tho people of the great central
portion of the United States, and
through them their Senators and Con
gressmen, that her growing material
and polltliul interests must be recog
nized and safe-guarded In the legisla
tion of Congress. A comprehensive
and creditable exhibit of Hawaii will
bo described and pictured by the press
or tho entire Uultcd States .
On the other hand, If Hawaii Is not
represented nt all, or In a limited way,
adverse comment will be excited and
unfavorable comparisons will be mado
with other States, Territories and out
lying possessions, that will surely re
act to her disadvantage. Were this
exposition merely sectional, or limit
ed In plan nnd scope, with only a few
States and countries taking part, the
absence of Hawaii, or the presenco ot
n small exhibit, would not be particu
larly noticed. On the other baud, In
vlow of the undoubted magnitude of
the undertaking, Hawaii must bo there,
and In such a way as Is commensurato
with her wealth and with her growing
Importance as a magic land of the mid
Pacific. The Vaudeville Shows.
4. Assuming now ttlat Hawaii will bo
represented at St. Louis by an exhibit
of which she can be proud, wo can
consider some of its features. Let mo
emphaslzo here that It Is tho announced
determination of tbo Louisiana Pur
chase Exposition management thnt
discreditable, low-class vaudeville and
spectacular effects shall not be allowed
a place within the limits of this World's
Fair, It Is Its acknowledged Intention
to avoid those unfmtunato character
istics which havo been so prominent in
other expositions. In other words, wo
want Hawaii to bee seen, studied, and
admired at St. Louis In her legitimate
exhibits, rather than made an agent
for theatrical amusement In the form
of hula-hula dances.
That this may come home to you nil
the stronger, I might put It In another
way: Provided the business Interests
nnd the government of Hawaii will par
ticipate on a scale which will bo credi
table alike to the Islands and the Ex
position, the officials and citizens ol
this Territory can rest assured that
Hawaii will not bo disgraced by un
wholesome midway attractions. On the
other hand, If Hawaii should decline tn
participate and therefore not show
even as much interest as tho Exposi
tion management, the latter cannot be
blamed If In granting concessions, In
order to have some kind of Hawaiian
participation, some features creep In
which might not meet your approval.
What is Wanted.
G. Knowing personally and officially
the wishes of President Roosevelt and
the United States Government on the
ono hand, nnd of President Francis nnd
the Louisiana Purchase Exposition on
the other hnnd, I would urge upon you
to make such an Industrial, economic,
agricultural, educational, geographical,
ethnological nnd governmental exhibit,
ns will Interest and Instruct all who
visit tho St, Louis World's Fair, and ns
will react to your vast advantage. Let
tho pcoplo of tho United States sec the
old nnd tho new Hawaii; let them bo
able to noto your actual resources and
your methods of developing them; let
them havo tho opportunity of seeing
native Hnwallans In other than a. mid
way village and dance-hall. Let them
look at your sugar plantations and
their workings on a small but repre
sentative scale that will speak plainly
of what you have at staka In thit In
dustry; let them be convince of your
advance In educational and economic
lines; let them be taught there the
problems nnd conditions that confront
your government, go that you may havo
their sympathy and Interest to a gmu
er degree; let them look nt your Isl
ands In miniature, geographical repro
duction that they may understand tho
conformation and area.
Ways and Means.
C. In conclusion, I would make a
humblo recommendation on tho all Im
portant question of ways and means.
Recognizing that your government can
do nothing except by act of our
Legislature, whose next session Is yet
a long way off, I would strongly advise
that tho community at large, or
through Its leading organizations, such
ns the Chamber of Commerce, Mer
chants' Association and Planters' AS'
soclatlon, appoints a World's Fair pro.
motion committee, or a Hawaiian
World's Fair Association, to take pre
liminary steps and dcvlso ways and
means. Something of this kind I would
respectfully urge should bo done with
out delay, whether the Exposition is
to ,'e held In 1903 or U-Ot. If held Jn
the former year such proccduro Is Im
perative and Is the only way of secur
ing Hawaiian participation; If In the
latter year, there will not be ono day
too many In which to mnko tho neces
sary preparations for an exhibit of
which you will be proud.
Such a committee or association
could take steps for a popular sub
scription which, in view of your great
liuslncEs tntet ests here, should amount
to a lare Mini, uml 11 can nwak-n pub
lic Bcntlmcnt so that your Legislature
will feel duty bound to supplement such
funds with n Territorial appropriation,
More than a dozen States and Terri
tories In the United Stntes proper are
already pursuing this method. I would
advise enrly action furthermore so thit
there can be a responsible agency to
communicate at onco with tho World's
Fair management and safeguard tho in
terests of Hawaii in the preliminary
preparations at St. Louis and to make
necessary reservations of a suitable lo
cation for a bulcllng and of amplo
space for various exhibits.
If such committee, in conjunction
with tho government of tho Territory,
would In tho near future decide upon
some thoroughly competent man or
men to act as the Territorial Commis
sioner or Commission, whoso appoint
ment would be confirmed lfy tho gov
ernment of the Territory after tho
Legislature had acted, or to continue
to hold that position If the business
Interests alone carried through thn
participation, a long step would be
taken towards the successful consum
mation of n creditable Hawaiian exhi
bit at St. Louis. In other words, th
more perfect organization you can de
velop, without any taint of politics,
tho mnro you will accomplish ,

able to lay our finger on Just the right
kind ot men to take hold ot this, I
think It would be quite right for us
this afternoon to leave the matter with

theretoro movo that this matter be at
onco placed before the Chamber ot
Commcrco and tho Merchants' Associa
Representative Dickey seconded tho
Mr. Cooke did not qulto agrco with
tho mover. Tho Chamber of Commerce
and tho Merchnnts' Association mostly
consisted of the samo members. There
was another organization, tho Hawa
iian Planters' Association, nnd all
should act in cooperation with the
government "I think that something
should be done at this meeting," Mr,
Cooke concluded; "that no should go
on with some sort of organization such
as electing a chairman and secretary,"
Mr. Row en disclaimed having had
any intention ot cutting off tho ex
pression of views.
Mr. Cooper said It was n splendid
meeting, there being men picsent rep
resenting every Industry. It was a flno
opportunity to start the ball rolling
now, with a temporary chairman nnd
secretary perhaps. "Mr. Dillingham, 1
would Ilka to hear a word from you."
Mr. Dillingham, though believing It
was well not to defer anything that
ought to bo done, thought It would bo
wise to canvass the matter carefully
end chooso the right men. He rather
favored the motion but suggested that
a commttto of tho different organiza
tions tako tho matter up, and each body
appoint committees to report back.
Mr. Cooper explained that his Idea
was only to appoint a committee on or
ganization to tako up tho work .
Mr. Scluefcr was Inclined to vndorso

resentative bodies would ndvlse about

tho temporary chairman come from
among their own number.
Mr. Spencer moved an amendment to
include tho Hawaiian Planters' Association.
Mr, Athcrton thought the suggestion
of Mr. Dillingham a good one. If tho
chairman would accept the chairman

ter before tho threo bodies already
named, the matter would be put In such
shape that they could act without any

tho honor dono him. While he felt the
responsibility, personally nnd official
ly, ho realized the necessity of getting
to work at once even If tho Exposi
tion should be postponed until 1901.

Composition of Meeting.
Mr. Cooper, on tho cessation of ap

sioner General Rarrett's address, said:
"It seems to me that wo should not let
