THE KNOCKER CAMPAIGN
People who loturn from Snn l'ran
cisco urn! the State of California may
Lay all they pleato of tho "plague in
'Frisco," tho worry of tho banks and
tho lending business Interests that
aie thinking hnid on v.liat and with
whom they may fill their new blocks.
They may croak na they will, hut
tho citizens of the district ot Hono
lulu and tho Territory of Hawaii
would profit mentally anil morally
nnd financially if they would tako an
example from tho "spirit of San
Francisco," which refuses to look up
on or to know tho dark sldo.
It Is nut to be doubted that Snn
Kranclsco Is having n hard struggle
nud Is putting up a bravo fight. Hut
Mich a phrase is "give up" Is not to
he found In Its language for business
men. There ls.au eternal campaign
of "boost" nnd it Is paying. This Is
not a campaign of misrepresentation
but rather n working out of tho doc
trine of determination to win.
Kor this reason, tho reading of the
literature sent out by tho promotion
committee with headquarters In San
Kranclsco is a pleasure and nn edu
cation. There will bo plenty or
croakers perhaps to say that the pro
motion literature, overstates tho sit
uation. Perhaps so, hut wo doubt It.
