STICK TO YOUR TASK.
A more mistaken policy could
hardly bo imagined thnn an abandon
nient of tourist promotion liecauxo
the present season, from one. cause or
another, has not been especially
To make such a move would exag
gerate whatever Injury might result
from the reputation of having two
of the leading hotels of tho city clos
ed, and bring on a stagnation that
would In reality do damage from
which the city and the islands would
be long In recovering.
To carry out such u program will
tend to bring about a condition thnt
will make It doubtful whether ono
hotel can be made to pay.
It Is not the part of a live and
progressive town to conduct Itself as
It It had scored u defeat, when there.
Is absolutely no occasion for to do
ing. The Promotion Committee Bhoultl
stick to the work for which It was
organized. To start off on side 13
fups, for the handling of which there,
lb a Territorial Hoard already In ex
istence, would bo like swapping
horses In the middle of tho stream.
Stick to the task, nnd carry It
through to success. Kill one hotel
nnd then ample space will be pro
vided for other travelors to como.
When one hotel Is filled Honolulu
merchants will prosper.
The cable dispatch of yestcrdav
announcing the i eduction of the dis
count rate of the Hank of England to
four per cent. Is the most reassuring
sign of the times that lias come to
the financial world since early last
The Hank of Kngland discount
rate has been not lower than four
ud one-half per cent, since mld-
ummer, and only a few months ago
it went to the record Ilgure of seven
These figures arc the best evidence
that could be offered of the shaking
down process having been completed,
no that nil the future movements of
business and Ilnancevmny be forwnrd.
Thls Is the spirit of tho circular Is
sued by Henry Clews on January 11
and conditions have Improved much
since that time.
Clows says of Wall-Street affairs;
"Confidence Is reviving nnd n muiti
greater degree of recovery has al-'
ready been established than could
possibly have been foretold n month
or six weeks ago, This improvement
Is almost entirely due to favorable,
developments In the monetary situa
tion. The premium on currency has
Anally disappeared and rates for time
money are steadily declining. Along
with this movement there lias been a
corresponding drop In rates for com
mercial paper, tho demand for which
has much improved. The derange
ment In credit Is gradually passing
away; liquidation has been severe
nnd has had the effect of releasing
large sums previously locked up In
high-priced securities. The return
movement of funds from tho Interior
has fairly begun nnd will now con
tinue for some time to come. Thero
Is an abundance of currency In tho
interior nnd a relative scarcity In
New York. This Is demonstrated by
tho last national bank statement,
which showed that the banks In tho
central reservo cities In order to
help during tho crisis allowed their
leserves to dccllno to 832,000,000.
below legal requirements, while the
country banks carried surplus re
serves of over 1103,000,000. With
the return of confidence and tho re
sumption of specie payments, thcro
should bo a very largo Influx of theso
funds back to New York and other
leserve cities, for this reason tho
deficit in Now York loterves must bo
nearly wiped out, and for homo time
to como rising uverages will probably
be tho rule. When it Is recalled that
the increase in circulation during the
last twelve months hus been ?19B,
000,000., of which nearly $70,000,.
000. was added In Oocember, It will
ho apparent that a very mnterlnl In
crease In the supjily of loanable funds
is Ifhmlffont'at thla center. It is nlso
JANUARY 24, 1008
to be roiiMdoicd that hoardings In
'.ill pints of the country, estimated at
over JuTo. 000,000., nro being releas
ed and will soon bo restored into cir
culation. In short, wo nro rapidly
running Into a period when the sup
ply of funds will bo more nearly suf
ficient for requirements, In view of
lower vrlco nnd smaller demands
than n year ugo. Ordinarily, u re
dundant currency acts ns n groat sti
mulus to stock-market values, nnd no
doubt this has been nn important cle
ment In hastening recovery."
There Is a rcverso side, however,
thnt acts as an offset to n too rosenlc
view of the future. Many railroads
nie seriously In need of funds and
their needs are presented nt a time
when railroads nro looked upon with
a certain nmount of suspicion. Of
the railroads and the commercial
lines Clews sas. "It Is nlso recog
nized thnt tho railroad situation Is In
many respects very unsatisfactory.
Already there has been n shrinkage
In the volume of traffic nnd n further
contraction Is anticipated. Expenses
meanwhile are running unavoidably
high, nnd profits of nearly all of the
railroads have suffered a serious dim
inution. This will ijc partly coun
teracted by u policy of economy nnd
retrenchment, but Wall Street Is
quite satisfied that wo nro In for u

"It Is Important to icmcinber that
the tendencies of the day urn to
wards recuperation, while a year ngo
they were clearly towards an Unpen
ning crisis. Our farming nnd manu
facturing classes hno been but
slightly Injured by the panic. We
have passed through n peilod of most
drastic liquidation, tlioioughly ic
moving weak spots nnd releasing
large sums of capital previously lock
ed up In pools and syndicates nt In

much Improvement In the commercial
