GET TO BUSINESS.
Honolulu should lose no time In
getting Itself In business shape for
the entertainment of the Fleet.
This does not mean preparation for
extracting dollars fioni the sailors.
It does hao refeiencc to tho Im
mediate necessity for shaping a defi
nite and permanent program of en
tertainment a scheme to work to
In order that when the ships arrive
off the port our people may be ready.
It s.eems even now that our citizens
do not realize the Iniinormlty of this
Two months will elapse before the
ships arrive, but even that Ipng space
allows no spare moments for quib
bling. The committees and tho peo
ple must get down to business.
They have not only to tako care of
the men of the Klcet, but. If the work
Is properly done, this town will con
tain the largest number of people
from the outside Islands ever known.
The entertainment In n big prepo
sition and It should bo conducted on
broad, liberal lines.
FOR EUROPEAN IMMIGRANTS.
An Interview of particular signifi
cance to tho peoplo of this Territory
was given by William It. Wheeler,
the newly appointed Assistant Secre
tary of Commerce and Labor, while
off his way ti) Washington.
Mr.. Wheeler, our readers will re
call, Is a California man, and, while
being In touch with the sentiment of
the West, he should undoubtedly
gauge his public utterances by the
. known policy of the department nf
' which he Is now a leading factor.
Mr. Wheeler is quoted as follows
"It Is my conviction that the
substitution of peaceful agricul
turists from southern Europe for
. Chinese and Japanese laborers
will eventually settle one of the
great problems of California. '
("Vlth the completion of 'the
Panama Canal the tide of Immi
gration that now sweeps Into New
York City will be partly diverted
to the Pacific Coast, nnd-dcslrablo
farmers, will bo landed on4 theso
chores In large numbers.
"As ft long- resident of this
State I'reallzo Unit the employ
ment of Asiatics has caused se
rious complications. I believe tho
whole question can be settled
amicably and surely by the Intro
duction of Italians and others of
the Latin races who tuke kindly
to agricultural pursuits.
"Fruit-growers and other em
ployers of labor assure me they
will employ white men In prefer
ence to Japanese and Chinese If
they can be obtained. The estab
lishment of immigration bureaus
in some of our large cities would
aid In placing many immigrants
. on -the soli."
This naturally appeals to Hawaii
because it Is more or less In line with
what this Territory is striving to do
In order to bring about a better bal
dancing of racial elements In the pop
ulation of the Islands.
The time may come when Hawaii
can cooperate with California-In this
project, and tho tide of European Im
migration be turned In this general
After hearing the evidence in the

Charges of battery were not sus

Members of the Committee on En

been planning for an elaborate ball,
to bo given the Fleet whertMt arrives
here, expressed their sentiments very
frankly at a meeting this morning
In regard to the opposition which
this plan met with from the chali
men of other committees.
Fred. L. Waldron, the'ehnirman of
the Entertainment Committee, was
much worked up over the antago
nism, He said that the chairmen of
the various committees had had am
ple opportunity to offer suggestions
during the discussion of the Fleet
ball Instead of making such 11 stiong
opposition to the work of the com
mittee. After a general discussion, no final
action was taken on the ball matter.
At tho .meeting of tho Entertainment
Committee next Wednesday morning
the members expect to receive sug
gestions relative to the form and way
of entertaining the Fleet during Its

out to some point from which to view

peaks that oiorlook the bay, or wore

had gone far down tho coast to accom
pany the battleships as they entered
tho bay. ,
"With tho first Bhot from tho guns
that fired tho welcoming salute in tho
Presidio, thero was 11 commotion of
suppressed expectancy among tho
Jieople. Lunches wero forgotten.
rjien tho Connecticut with a torpedo
boat abeam enmu Into view U the
hundred and fifty thousand ptaplv
waiting In tho Presidio. Strango to
say, there was llttlo shouting. What
tho battleships stood for and what
their visit might portend seemed to
Bilenco tho throjig; they stood gazing
down to tho mouth of tho bay with u
look that in spite of Its curiosity, con
tained much that was reverent owe.
Ono father advised his boy to shout
"Hurrah for Hob Evans." Anothei
man In his excitement was. murmur
ing, "Oh, why don't Bob Evans bring
his boats nearer; wu want to sco them
bo muclij" But those who wero talk
ing wero In tho minority.
"Excepting tho bark of tho saluting
guns and )he nuswers from thu pass
ing elilps, a mantel of slleucu seemed
to havo dropped upon thu hills sur
rounding the bay. Tho mighty thiong
paid their respects to tho coming llect
with a Balutc that was mightier and
older than that of shouting they
stood In silence.
"As tho Atlantic fleet passed Alca
traz Island the Pacific fleet dropped
Into lino Just behind tlio visitors and
accompanied them to tlio nnchorage
station off. Folsoiu street wharf. Tho
Sightseers at thu Presidio and Land's
End began then to try tojnako their
way bads'! to town and dywn.to the
Ferry building beforo the fleet fin
ished Its iroyngo and dropped anchor
The' attempt in tho majority of tho
cases was futilo, for late.that night
tho cars jlownward bound'wero filled
with belated sightseers Just getting
back to tho city.
"Tlio Connecticut first camo to a
stop and the rest of hu ships of the
two united fleets then passed In col

flagship' 111 to flvo columns of eight
ships or more In this formation thu
battleships steamed on down to their
nnchorngo borth. whero they will re
main until tliS order for the routlnu
nnco of the cruiso is given.
"Tho combined fleet leaves and
makes its strongest Impression
through the falry-JIko spectacle It pre
sents when lit up at night. Electric
lights aio strung f 10111 tho bow- to tho
stern; up and down over thu masts,
yards and smoko stacks, In perpendlc
ular and horizontal lines. This cre
ates a picture that leaves a vivid
memory of a multitude of mystically
lighted crosses suspended In tho air.
Thousands cross over the ferries on
tho nights when tho fleet It lit up In
this manner, mid hundreds of small
craft carry out other thousands who
wish to view tho sight at nearer
range; but tho view Is better from a
distance; all tho mj story of tho lights
Is eliminated and the hard warlike
background of tho battle ships stand
nut In bold fontrast to tho lights."
