In connection with the fact that the
time for the resumption of normal
financial conditions Is no longer a
matter of conjecture, may well i.mse
the iieoplo of Hawaii to take n most
optimistic view of the future this su

The conditions presented today

Having been mi rieentlv through

One of the factors that lias un
doubtedly operated to bring about
tho present sharp mlvancc In New

It makes the fake-farm schemers
squirm to point to dishonest home-
steading which there Is every reason
to believe is the under!) Ing factor In
the purpose of ono of the exponents
of the alleged campaign for tho
"Americanization" of Hawaii.
Merc suggestion of the dishonest
seeker after land tho man who
wants it merely to turn It over to a
corporation employing servile labor
acts upon tho excitable nature of
tho faKe-farm promoter In a most ex
traordlnarj manner. A paranoiac Im
pelled by the liveliest enthusiasm of
his mania would not throw a moro un
happy fit than the individual, ob
viously aiming to throw public lands
on the maiket In such a manner that
tney will shortly be grabbed by cor
porations and "settled" with Orient
als. The system Jias been worked so
frequently on tho mainland that Ha

Tho campaign opens with all tho
appearances of tho best purpose In
the world. Public lands are thrown
open to settlement and persons who
cannot till the lnnd and liao no In
tontlon of cither tilling tho lands or
making a permanent Homo thereon

tiers." Irt due courso of time these fako
farmers perfect their titlo nnd dls

labor from the Orientals. Tho

RADIUM CAN CHANGE ELEMENT-
AL METALS INTO ONE
Chicago, 111 , Jan. 4 That tho
changing of elemental metals Into

ctnrtllng claim mado yesterday by
Professor Herbert N. McCoy of Die
University of Chicago, nt the final
meeting of the American Association
for the Advancement of Science.
Tho nnctcnt dream of tho separa

tho wholo sclenco of chcmlslrj, Is be

and the effect of radium emanation,
it is ulleged by tho chemist, who read
n paper on "Tho Inlcr-Kelntlons or
the Elements." Tho now theory Is
based on orlglnnl Investigation Into
tho naturo of the atom nnd experi
ments believed lo nlmtter many fa
mous scientific hypotheses.
In support of his statement that
the elements may no longer bo con-
i Idcrcd Immutable, Professor McCoy
told of the pioduction uf different
metals from elements In Ills own la
boratory. Tho presence of rndlo-oct-lvo
conditions In tho ntoms Is held
responsible for the ehangci.
The chemists uf tho inlddlo ages,
