WHAT'S THE USE
of doing without the comforts of life that cost no more than the
necessities whose place they take? Why do without good lights,
for instance, when they are no more expensive than poor lights?
is a luxury that costs no more than the poorest kind of light.
Wouldn't you say, off-hand, that any one is foolish to use any other
light? See us about having your house wired for electricity.

As the result of tho arrest of a

Atcherley by an agent of tho Hoard

FOR SHORT PERIOD
House Committee's Report On Ha
waii's Appeal for Passen
A Hill to Amend the Laws Con
cerning Transportation llctwccii
the Ports of tho Territory of Ha
waii and Other Ports of tho
He it enacted by tho Scnnto nnd
House of Representatives of the
United States of America in Con
That for n period of six years from
the passngo ot this Act, passengers
may be transported without penalty
In foreign vessels between ports of
the Territory of Hawaii and other
ports of the United States: Provid
ed, however, that the provisions of
this nct.shall cease to be operative
whenever a new line of nt least three
steamships of tho United States shall
have been established from the Unit
ed Stntcs to Hawaii.
This Is the bill reported favorably
to the llouso of Representatives by
Congressman Llttlefleld from thp
Gogumlttce on Merchant Marino nnd
Plshcrlcs. The report follows:
Tho Committee on the Merchant
Marino and Fisheries having had un
der consideration tho bill (II. II.
134G5) "to amend tho laws concern
ing transportation between tho ports
of tho Territory of Hawaii and other
ports of the United States," report
the same with an amendment and
the recommendation that tho bill do
pass as amended,
Tho purpose of this measure Is to
afford temporary relief to, and addi
tional facilities for, passenger travel
between tho linwkllMi Islands and
tho mainland of tho United Stntcs.
Owing to tho discontinuance nt the
Oceanic Steamship Company's service
to Australia, and the law prohibiting
foreign steamers which mako Hono
lulu n port of call from transporting
passengers from Hawaii to San Fran
cisco, the people of the Hawaiian Isl
nnd have three less passenger steam
ships available for travel from tho
port ot Honolulu than they had when
the annexation net was passed ten
years ago. Tho present conditions
arc an additional hardship because
of tho fact that the volumo of pdV
tongcr travel has meantime Increased
more than B0 per cent.
During tho past year there have
been numerous occasions whoa the
tlmo between sailings of American
ships' haH been from eight to twenty
ono days, with Intervals, of ten or
twolvo days a frequent occurrence.
In numerous cases the American
steamers calling nt Honolulu en
onto to San Francisco from tho
Orient, have not been able to provide
cabin spaco for moro than from 10
to CO per cent, of the passengers book
cd for those steamers.
Tho people ot Hawaii say, with
much reason, that It was never tho
purposo in annexing those Islands to
tho United States to mako communi
cation with the mainland moro dlfll
cult than It was when they were a
No chnngo of tho law as regards
freight transportation Is nsked, nor
aro lower steamer fares sought; tho
purposo Is only to secure tho physical
possibility ot travel when business or
personal reasons demand It.
Inasmuch ns Hawaii has no alter
native of land travel, the application
of tho coastwise laws to those Islands
has created a total inhibition at trav
el for tho varying periods between
American steamer sailings, such ns
