Wo cannot bollec that C. C. Ken

had It to do ocr again.
There's no doubt that Hawaii 111

They are necessities of American

It now appears that, according to
iaw, Dr. Cofcr should have the mynlf
lcent salary ot the President of the
Hoard ot Health thrust upon him,
or he should thrust himself out.
If they want their ticket to repre
sent a untied Democracy, they should

ticket with Bran For twelve )oara

What ot the Fouith of July? Is
this J car of the cuu...ig of the Fleet
to be the first In half a century that
the pcoplo hae not nBsemblcd to

Hllo Is not the only one. Hono
lulu has a few, and apparently more,
of them, although It is possible that
they don't know better.

Supervisors to provldo for nn Increase

band during tho stay ot the Fleet,
falls short of tho Kennedy letter only
on account of the fact3tbat the com
munity has come to expect more or
less peanut-politics business from tho

The local band should by all
means be recruited to its full strength
during the period when this city and
Territory are to act as tho hosts for

What sort ot a pin-head Ideal Is
the Territory of Hawaii coming to
that Its supposedly representative
people and supposed representatives
of the pcoplo have to waste their
time and breath in such discussion
and wind up by bringing the com
munity out at the little end of tho
horn so far as Its reputation for
unselfish hospitality Is concerned?

THAT KENNEDY LETTER.
We cannot agree with Mr. C. C,
Kenned that his letter to the Enter
tainment Committee, in charge of tho
ball for the officers ot tho Fleet, rep
resents the sentiment of tho citizens
of Hllo. If It docs, the people of our
sister city should Immediately organ
ize nn Ancient Order ot Sour I)all,
and mako Kennedy president.
Since, however, Mr. Kennedy Is
known to bo such a powerful busi
ness and financial factor in tho town
ot Hllo, it Is hardly possible to pass
his communication as tho thoughtless
utterance ot an Irresponsible person.
From the standpoint of Territorial
boosting and community unity Mr.
Kennedys letter Is quite tho-limit.
If ho Is not misunderstood, he
wishes the pcoplo bf Honolulu to
Know that they can tako their old
Fleet nnrt go to blazes with It. They
may dance and pay tho fiddler; no
ono In Hllo wants to come. From
Mr. Kenned 'a lou point, Hllo is
ory glad to lime tho pcoplo of Ho
nolulu get together and promote suc
cessful excursions to Hllo and tho
Volcano, and more excursions to Hllo
and Its Fourth-of-Jtily races, but he
can't see why the people of Hllo
should bare the slightest Interest in
either coming to Honolulu to see the
Fleet or bu)lng tickets to the ball for
tho officers of the Fleet.
Wouldn't that Jar You?
What if tho citizens ot Honolulu
had said to Mr. Kennedy nnrt his
Mlllo friends, when tho fight for .
breakwater was going op, "This
breakwater will not help us particu
larly, do jour own boosting, put up
our own coin for breakwater pro

Should it bo true that Mr. Ken
nedy expresses tho solid sentiment of
Hllo the real truth of the situa
tion thero Is but one thing for the
Entertainment Committee to do:
Send them a letter of sjmpathy.
Any community that has so toured
that It looks out upon tho world with
such a wry fnce and Indulges In such
unhappy thoughts Is entitled to nil
It gets. It Is in a mighty bad way.
It needs Smpathy.
When It comes down to a question
of brass tacks, Honolulu is not in
tho slightest need of assistance from
Hllo or Mr. Kenned). It can run tho
Fleet ball, mako It wldo open, and ex
tend a cordial Invitation especially
to Mr. Kennedy of Hllo to go In
free. Hut It was supposed that such
an Important ccnt as tho entertain
ment of the great Atlantic licet oi
America would bo looked upon as a
Territorial affair, and tho pcoplo ot
Hllo would be glad to participate.
Wo are inclined to believe Hllo
nlans will come nnd enjoy them
selves, Kennedy to tho contrary not
withstanding. Honolulu has had no moro to do
with tho ordering of tho ships of this
Fleet to one placo or another than It
has with trips to tho moon. That li
entirely In tho hands ot tho Admiral
and w III so remain. Up to dato, how
ever, Honolulu has been urging nn
excursion to Hllo and tho Volcnno
while tho Fleet Is In port,
work will go on despite the Kenned
letter, Mr. Kennedy Is such a busy
man thnt ho has no doubt tailed to
noto that tho Fleet will stay In Ha
waiian waters only long enough to
coal, The program Is not all play
by any means.
Perhaps the least said of the mat
ter the better. Perhaps the best placo
for the Kennedy letter is in tho Wall
op Museum as n curio of hospitality
and community lifo in Hawaii. Een
as ix peach, It Is In a class by Itself.
