THE HISTORY OF BUSINESS.

business 8)8tcm Is a fluctuating one;
that progress goes In waves; that
prosperity Is alwn)s followed hy nd

Clews Is talking of mainland con
ditions, whfch are confessedly unsat
isfactory. for the benefit of Hawaii let us
read: It must be recognized that
our business ustcm Is a fluctuating
one; that progress goes In waes;
that adversity is alwa8 followed by
prosperlt; that expansion follows
contraction, and that low prices must
bo succeeded by high prices.
It Hawaii, after Its period of con
traction, is not on the verge of pro
gressive expansion. It never has been
and never will be.
A COMMUNITY FLEET FUND.
Collecting money for tho enter
tainment of tho Fleet is ono impor
tant detail of administration that is
occupying the minds of tho Execu

- The executive men are presumably
sizing up the situation and may fol
low the usual plan of: first, deciding
what Is needed; second, making a
list of the "regular" business houses
of the city; and, third, "apportion
ing" the amount fo be raised.
While tho executive man la doing
this the business man Is wondering
how much he will be asked for and
how he will meet it.
The business men of tho city of
Honolulu aro not "small," They nro
not parsimonious in their treatment
of the men who must ralso money for
a big event. They have a great many
calls for contributions, nnd moro
than one says "Yes" when ho knows
he should say "No," simply becauso
he feels that he must come up to the
mark that custom has Bet for him.
Since this Fleet visitation Is a mat

largo and small, citizen and resident,
la Interested, the suggestion has been
made to this paper that it propose a
general subscription for Ihe Fleet
We believe tho idea a most excel
lent one and would recommend it to
the committee, with the assuranco
that it meets a community sentiment.
A general public subscription to
the Fleet fund should strlko a popu

out the Islands. It would enable the
people to demonstrate thoir good-will
toward a celebration that Is to ex

they would not be considered becauso

Include the Honolulu element on the
other side of Nuuanu, tho other Isl
ands, and the people who could glvo
only a dollar or two, at most.
Some may remark that Borne other
occasion would be better for making
a change In tho fund-rnUIng custom.
If there was ever an affair in which
all Hawaii Is interested, this Is the
one, and there Is no time like tho
present to recognize that both sides
of Nuuanu and the population of tho
other Islands enter Into our commu

Merchants' Association, Honolulu.
Dear Sirs: Please accept my
thanks for tho very kind telegram of
congratulations over tho passage of
my bill for tho development of Pearl
Harbor. It Is very pleasing to know
that the amount mailable this vcar
has been increnscd to $1,000,000 nnd
that the total expenditure will bo
from $3,000,000 to $4,000,000.
My personal Inspection of Pearl
Harbor a joar ago impressed me
with its Importance. It was there
fore a plcaBuro to report the matter
from the Sub-Committee on Navy
Yards, of which I happened to be the
chairman, nnd also to urgo tho mat
ter through the House.
The very high standing of nur
Delegate helped much In tho matter.
Mr. McClellan has been constant In
season and out of season from the
very first and has worked Incessant
ly and Industriously for tho passage
of this bill. In fact, I received from
him many suggestions which wero
