FREE OAR RIDES.
Tree street-car transportation for
the men of the Fleet Is the most pop
ular proposition that the Fleet Com
mittee has ever presented to the peo
ple of the town.
Citizens and firms who were the
largest contributors to the' entertain
ment fund have been tho first to urge
that the needed money for this pur
pose shall be appropriated.
I Tho people of Honolulu want
njen of the Fleet to enjoy themselves.
They want them to have all there Is
tti bo had, within reason, for nothing.
They want tho Men to be suro of a
good time. The officers will have am
pto prlvnto entertainment If the gen
eral entertainment Is not enough.
'The Admiral has said and everyono
litis icported that the free car-rides
afe most appreciated by the enlisted

battleships or one.
GOVERNOR FREAR'SLiND POLICY.
The last man In the Territory to
use his newly outlined land policy as
ii weapon for taking n slap at the
European Immlgrunt would be Clov-e-rnor
; That his very commendable schemo
should be taken as such a cudgel Is
ridiculous In the extreme. It serves
no other purpose than to furnish
campaign material for mainland ene
trilea of Hawaii who have been active
In Congress and will continue to bo
active In Congress to accomplish the
defeat of the Administration policy
In these Islands.
tj Governor Frear's homesteadlng
jiroposal as It appears on paper bears
fiiery promise to serving tho end fur
.which it has been framed an easy
way for the honest homesteader and
a complete, blockade for the land
One of tho most commendable fea
tures of the Governor's plan Is his
wiping out of the Interest charge
made against the homesteader. There
Is every reason why the man who
necks to make a home for himself by
developing land which he cultivates
bIi'ouM not be loaded down with an
Interest charge as well as his pur
chase price. Tho commonwealth will
reap a splendid profit from the In
dustry of the homebullder and his
way should be made as easy as pos
sible. ! The ten-year period for obtaining
title .j tho land will not work a
hardship on the mnn who goes upon
the land to establish a home. It he
does not wish to be a permanent set
tier, he Is not wanted. The Territory
has had enough of tho law-dodger,
the speculator and promoter whose
chief aim Is to get possession of land
In order to "make a turn" and get
out of the country, or become an ab
sentee landlord as the chief benefl
clary of an incorporated "small farm"
worked by gang-labor.
The proof of the pudding Is the
eating. The schemo looks all right
Now back It up with Action, so that
the citizens of this Territory and
those attracted from abroad may
make their start.
i Meanwhile the campaign for the
European immigrant will move stead'
lly forward. The laboring element
of the Islands will become better bal
unced. The day of servile labor will
pass uwuy, and the more ambitious of
tho new arrivals will speedily obtain
There will be an end of the false
policy of making a loud noise regard
Ing the Americanizing that is going
on when as a matter of fact a secret
and continuous duplication of the un
desirable features of the great sugar
estate is being brought about, to the
detriment of all things American.
Governor Frear's land policy, tak
en In conjunction with the known
Federal and Territorial Admlnlstra
tlon determination to obtain the Eu
ropean Immigrant for tho Islands, is
MAINLAND BUSINESS SHOW
Hawaii will nc to acknowledge
with thanks the charge laid against
It of being, at the present time, one
of the most prosperous places on
Tli- no zc-nij at times to be
very s!o-v In becoming distributed
from the hands of the few Into the
pockett uf the many, but with the
present course of affairs It cannot be
a matter of many months before the
good Influence, by crops nnd good
prices, will be more forcibly felt nil
along the line.
The same can hardly be said of the
mainland. The banking circulars
which e9tcrdny predicted a long nr
ray of good things anil good times,
appear tomorrow with reasons why
It has not worked out as expected.
One is impressed with this by fol
lowing the Clows circulars, which re
flect the ntmosphero of Wall Street.
And, say what we may, Wall Street Is
the heart of things In financial Amer
ica. It is true that the outlook ,1s
better, but the revival Is not as
speedy as many were led to expect.
Clews in the latest circular says:
"We are now approaching the pe
riod of usual summer dullness; nnd
many operators are absent on vaca
tions or disinclined to activity until
political and crop uncertainties aro
cleared away. The crop outlook, as
a whole, continues encouraging. Oc
casional damage has been done by ex
cessive rnlhs, but as a rule such In
juries are more than offset by high
conditions In wheat, corn, oats, and

pulmiry cut-down in expenses. Then
dividends began to decline, nnd now
tho companies find themselves in n
toniewhat seitotis itllemmn, out of
which there 'are only two ways of es
cape, cither n recovery In earnings
through business Improvement, or u
still further retrenchment In ex
penses. Should the latter bo neces
sary, It means a cut-ilo'wn In wages,
or n withdrawal of the advance
grnnted to labor In 1900 and 190.
It Is to be hoped such n step will, not
be necessary, nnd that a satisfactory
solution will be found In business re-
vlvnl. There has been serious talk of
an advance In freight rates, but this
would be unwise iollc , since it
would check rather than stimulate
traffic, and revive public hostility to
railroads, which after having done
sufficient hnrm Is now really nbattng.
The most favorable feature In the
railroad situation Is that tho number
of Idle cars is beginning to decrease.
It is to bo hoped the railroads have
experienced the wotst of the depres
sion, and will before long begin to
reflect the Improvement In general
business. Clearing-house returns are
nlieady making better exhibits; tho
declines now running In the vicinity
of 15 per cent, compared with 20 per
cent, and over a few weeks ngo, and
this In spite of diminished specula
liny reported In other sections. Corn
Is tho only exception, being somewhat
backward; but this Is a crop which
develops rapidly, and would quickly
respond to a few days of hot weather.
So far there U no reason for concern
In regard to the crops; on the con
trary, there Is still every reason to
look forward to comparative abund
ance nnd good prices for the fruits of
the earth; conditions still- being so
high as to lenvo ample margin for
ordinary deterioration during the
next two or three months.
'In the business outlook there is
little change, nnd a very quiet sum
mer for nil lines of Industry is In
prospect. It Is quite evident that a
further period of rest will be neces
sary for convalescence after the EC'
ere crisis of last October. Recovery
will require more time than some I in
patient people will admit. The sit
uation is steadily Improving, and the
outlook Is certainly hopeful; but this
Is not a time to bo over-sanguine, nnd
moderate anticipations aro much
more likely to be realized than those
of oer-enthuslaBtlc prosperity boon!
ers, whose wishes nre too often fath
er to the thbught. Tho uusatisfac
tory condition of railroad affairs Is
still an element to bo reckoned with.
Latest reports of earnings continue
unsatisfactory; the gross returns of
railroads reported in May Bhowing a
loss of over 24 per cent, compared
with less than 20 per cent. loss iu
April, 14 'per cent. In March, 10 per
cent, in February, and 9 per cent, in
January. It hns thus taken seven
months for the railroads to feel tho
full consequences of the panic. Thoso
consequences have grown steadily
worse. The first effect was to render
it Impossible for the railroads to raise
money for carrying out projected Im
provements: the next effect was a de
crease In earning power, and a com-

When you think of setting a Refrigerator, ask these
questions, and get at the rifjht answers;
Docs the Refrigerator "Make Good"? Does it do what
its makers claim, or onlv part of it?
Does it utilize every ounce of ice to the best advan
tage? Is it easily cleaned, strong, durable?
We would be glad to have you investigate the
after this manner; and you'll be wise to do it.
