HONOLULU AND HIGH CLASS
The people of the city of Honolulu

are so fickle that tho local manager

History has too often recorded that
Honolulu will turn out In the nilddlo

Madame Arral Is Quito the finest vo

Honolulu has had so many "other en-'

Still they say that local managers
have no courage, and Honolulu dc

NOWADAYS PERILS OF MER

store, nowadays. Is that It will get
into a rut. The merchant who Is
afraid to make a nolso; who dreads
the day his bills fall duo; who Is
afraid to spare money for advertis

watching little things, to worrying
about trifles, ho'ls In danger.
In effect, he Is trying to found and
build a store on his fears, not on his
aspiration; on misgivings, not on

Editor Evening Bulletin;
In answer to our friend, who fortun
ately had the good graco to write
nnonomously, nnd who should have
headed ids article "Sidelights of a
Failure," I wish to say that his re
marks with regard to Americans be
ing mndo unwelcome In Australia Is
without foundation as tho largo tcpro
pollution of 'commercial Interests In
tho commonwealth well know.
Australia ns a country can speak
for Itself and tho writer's version
hardly agrees wfth'tho following clip

"Tho thoughtful stranger who visits
Australia for tho first tlmo Is most Im
pressed by the extraordinary possibil
ities of tho young commonwealth. The
fcouthwestern country contains mil
lions of acres ot fruitful land which
can grow almost anything, and whlct
aro still practically undeveloped. Here
Is room for great micoii und cntllt
lanches, for farms whoso rich virgin
soil has not yctibcen scratched by tho
hno or cloven by tho plow. Even such
great cities as Sydney and Melbourne
i-acu Willi a population " muro man
half a million souls, represent only a
beginning. Tho samo is still more
truo ot Adelaide, and Hnbart, nnd Brisbane.-'
