As to the disposal of tho property

Ono of our lommltteo Is flimly In

DOWN TOWS CLUB
Honolulu, Nov 8th, 1907.
Mr. 7. K Mjers. President Onliu
'Central Improvement Commit
Dear Sir Your (ommltten np
potnled to 'tnke ch irgo of tho or
ganizing of a down-town club" beg
to make the following report
After duo consideration wo bellcvo
It would not be to the best Inteiest
cl the Improuinent Clubs ns n w hole
to organize a separate club lu addi
tion to the largo number of differ
ent associations nnd rlubs now ex
isting In tho down-town district
most of which nssoclntlons ul reach
bnvo difficulties in getting n quorum
nt their meetings
It is tho opinion of the committee,
however, that it would bo practical
fur tho Oahu Central Committee to
enlarge Its present work by taking
chnrgo of tho down-town impiove
incuts or in other words for It to be
como tho down-town club nnd ut the
same time not to bo released ns the
governing body of tho suburban
In making tho above recommenda
tion wo would respectfully suggest
that a special meeting of tho Othu
Central Committee bo called, at
which time. If ncted upon favorably,
special committees could bo named to
take charge of tho work as might bo

W. A. 11UYAN.
Z. K. Mjers spoko ns follows:
It Is with n feeling of encourage
ment that we review tho work of
tho past )car. Tho great amount of
interest that has been shown by
thoso who havo been Invited to at
tend our meeting and the hearty re
Fponse to our request for pipers and
suggestions, also tho active Inteiest
that Is being taken In improvement
matters by the Kllohnna Art League,
tho Civic Federation, and other ns
roclutlons und societies, encourages
us to believe thnt such efforts will
eventually bo tho means of bringing
forth a general movement towards
beautifying tho city.
More enthusiasm, how over, should
be shown by tho locnl clubs, nnd, If
tosslble. they should bo stimulated
to greater action. Special effort
chould be mado Just now to revive
nil tho clubs that wcro organized
fonio time ago
From a map which has been pre
pared by Mr. I S. Dodge, bhowlng
tho boundaries of all clubs ot rec
ord, wo find thero aro several dis
tricts whoio new clubs should bo or
ganized, and this map also shows tlio
udvlsablllty of consolidating several
cf the smaller clubs Into larger nnd
more Influential clubs. '
The wonderful results which have
nlrcad) been accomplished by tho
active clubs should also bo tho
means ot stimulating nil ot the
clubs to grenter activity. Tho ques
tion of organizing a "Down Town
Club" will bo considered nt this
meeting This Is ono of several mut
ters which have been mado the sub
ject of careful Btudy, ana will bo
leported on by special committees
Tho general clean appearance of
our city has been favorably com
mented upon by visitors rrom tho
mainland, unci the greatest efforts
should be mado to maintain our rep
utation of having a clean city, and
In this connection tho property hold
ers should not forget to do their part
in assisting tho ltoad Supervisor lu
his efforts to keep tho streets nnd
Mr. C D. Wlllard, who recently
visited our city, and who hus been
to prominently connected with this
Impiovcmont work lu Southern Cal
ifornia, makes tho statement that
nowhere has ho seen such an im
provement spirit as Is shown hero
In Honolulu, and In this work an
Interest has already been created
greater than what has taken thorn
many jears to accomplish In tho
city of Los Angoles, but Mr. Wlllard
has certainly struck the Icoy-notc,
when ho says, "You will have to
keep persistently at It,"
The following ofllcors wero elected
for tho ensuing jear: John Kldwell,
president; (lovernnr Trcnr, ico pres
ident; C. II. Dickey, secretary, tien
cial Davis, treasurer; L. A. Thurs
Kldwell took tho chair and made
a few remarks, calling attention to
work which should bo done, as, for
instance, tho consideration of the
cemetory question, tho restriction of
cattle-driving through tho streets, '
On motion by Mjers, tho reports
