BUILD UP HAWAII.
In this period when the business
men of the city are beginning to find
themselves and come to a better knowl
edge of what organization and cooper
ation can accomplish, the description
of what the Business Men's League of
St. Louis has done should carry en
couragement to the merchants nnd
traders of Honolulu. The general scope
of the St. Louis organization as shown
by its standing committees ought also
to contain valuable suggestions for
framing our efforts In tho future
No movement Inaugurated In these
Islands has given greater promise of
becoming a real power for aggiesslvo
unity of purpose and sound progiess
than that which has brought the Mer
chants' Association and the Dullders
and Traders' Exchange Into existence
Tho central thought of these associa
tions of active business men Is the
prosperity of Honolulu. They urge
measures In tho broad spirit which
recognizes tho fact that pioapcrlty for
individual members means piosperlt)
for the community. These bodies do
not foster antagonisms. Theli aim
Is to get the people Interested and make
their power felt, conserve honest ener
gy and develop all tho possibilities for
local expansion -hlch our resources
Tho Merchants' Fair as the first ac
complishment Is furnishing an example,
which nono can discount. It has In
creased enthusiasm and brought tin
people in touch with rcsultB.
Next on the list for Immediate atten
tion Is tho Merchants' Association
tourist campaign and the Builders and
Traders' program for propertly pre
senting the demands of the community
before the Senatorial commission. Doth
these organizations are dealing with
matters of vital Importance to every
citizen and resident of tho Territory.
Benefits to be derived do not accrue
solely to tho mercantile houses, the
builders or the trades. Prosperity for
these factors means prosperity for all
nnd an era of good feeling that will
wipe out forever the petty bickering
responsible for Hawaii's reputation as
a hot bed of dissension,
We want Federal money spent In
Hawaii We want our share of public
buildings. We want the tourists In
search of a pleasant outing summer or
winter and wo want such a city and
such a Territory that Congress will
readllj grant our Just due nnd every
tourist will become n walking adver
tising medium for the beauties, tho
comforts and the pleasures of Hawaii
We want every man, woman nnd child
to realize that they can assist In build
ing up this Territory by making their
homes ntti active, by expressing their
totally to this city and this Terrltor),
by showing In word and acts that there
Is a great force of energetic unity be

people and good money here nnd keeps
