What The Exposition
Means To Hawaii
BY LOYD CHILDS
It Is safe to say that no bther or
ganization In the United States Is
carrying oh, at tho present time, n
moro extensive or effective advcrtls-
Ing campaign throughout the world
than Is the Promotion Committee ot
Honolulu And so It Is that, in n
wny, we arn lko tho merchant who
follows up his advertisements with
his traveling man, to show the goods.
We will, at the Alaskn-Yukon-Paclflc
Exposition follow up the promotion
work and show the goods. Wo wilt
place before tho two million or more
visitors to the Exposition our prod
ucts; show Uiciu our educational ad
vantages, entertain them with Ha
waiian music and moving pictures of
scenes ot Hawaiian life, nnd finally
we will- serve them with our tropi
cal fruits, for the test of the pudding
Is the eating thereof.
we win snow mem liy practical
demonstration that Hawaii Is not
only a grout sugar-producing sec -
Hon of Uncle Sam's domain, but that
our pineapples are nil that we claim
for them, and our papains, avocado
pears, and mangoes ara wonderful
fruits of such merit that they ought
to te found In every market of the
Coast and Middle West States, and
that our coffee Is, as experts say, "thu
Host." Not only this, but wo wltl
show them that although Hawaii will
always be a great sugar-producing
country, she is many thousands of
acres suitable for n great variety of
crops, the vast possibilities of which
