All things being equal, the delegates
Hawaii sends tovn Natlonnl conven
tion should favor the man having nn
intimate acquaintance with tho Pa
cific and especially the territory of

Taft fills this bill particularly well,
although Uncle Joe Cannon, If the

be a close second.
GIVE IT A TPIAL
The proposal that Manager
Schwerln has made to this commu
nity is worth a fair trial.
Dried)- put, the I'aclllc Mall man
agement proposes to reserve a stated
number of first-class rooms on
Its ships so that the round-trip pas
senger to Honolulu or the stop-over
passenger from the Orient shall have
first choice. This will be done pro
vided tho people of Honolulu or any
icsponslble business house will don
bent to It or act as a buffer between
the company and the local passen
gers who might feel they wcro sub
ject to discrimination.
The point to be gained for this
town is, to wipe out the constant
complaint, and resultant injury to
tourist travel, arising from inability
ot transient visitors to get nway
from tho Islands on a definite date.
As tt stands now, tho passenger nn
the Pacific Mali boat can reach the
Islands but ho has no assurance when
he books for a through boat of a cer
tain date that ho can obtain passage
Schwerln's plan Is to reserve a def
inite number ot rooms to that the
visitor may book In San Francisco
on a particular return steamer with
absolute confidence that ho will e
. euro accommodation.
, No doubt In turning this question
over It will be possible to raise a
great variety of arguments about the
discrimination against the local pas
sengers. It Is easy to nag. Hut It
oil comes down to tho fundamental
proposition of whether the peoplo ol
the Territory of Hawaii want to pro
mote tourist trado or not, and wheth
er In so doing they nre willing to
take n chanco at making sacrifices,
That Is all there Is to It.
The prevailing Impression In this
city Is that tho steamship companies

' Considerate or not, hero Is a defi

pany running definite ships. The
only unknown quantity is the atti
