Let every citizen organize hlmtc't
Into nn association for the advance

That scientific convention will ar

what tho Now Honolulu will be.
No one has jet called at tlin police,

M. S. Orlnli.ium always has a good

One burglar caught and ono burti

one burglary and no burglar caught
Prosperity Is tho best promotion,

People will continue to travel. The
Italian disaster will send the tourist"
over the Pacific routes whero Ave
would hnvo gono under ordinary cir
cumstances. San Francisco's disas

Sicily will divert It toward us.
Let tho scientists have their way
flat up to tho present moment there
has been no report of exceptional
volcanic action accompanying the Si

there has been .nothing approaching

recognition as the convention city fo
tho 1010 meeting of the American
Association fur the Advancement of
This1 Is the first step In a new lino
of development. It will not bo tho
last, for tho peoplo of this city will
iiiako the 1910 meeting such n no-
jtnbla success that Honolulu will be
looked upon as available for other
conventions of other National organ
izations. The first great value of this con
vention will bo to Impress the world,
and especially tho peoplo of tho main
land, that Honolulu Is not so far out
of tho world as they think.
It will bo new to mnny of our oth
erwise Intelligent citizens to know
that Honolulu has the hotel accom
modations for n convention of any
lc. Tho wife of acclamation Ex
pert Newell planned to remain on
board tho steamer during tho clay of
her husband In tho Islands! And if
jlio had gained such nn impression of
tho comforts for travellers this city
contains, there Is no telling what tho
average run of peoplo on tho main
land think of us. ,
Tho convention will have a broad
ening Influence on our own people,
It will give them something now to
think about. It will tako them away
fiom themselves, nnd, bring them In
touch with tho nblest and most brll
Ilaiitmcn of tho country.
Aside from tho beauties nnJ. tho

been In accord with their theory, ,lt
may bo posslblo that this declaration
has been hastened, by tho recent Irre

Tho International nvowal between
tho two nations most Interested In
the trado ot tho North Pacific wlll'slppl, through the Canal, via llono
put to rest any nervous npprchon

between tho two peoples. It Insures

One somctrfkrV 'hears a, vociferous
exclamation, wno is to commercial'
ly "domlnnto" tho Pacific? This lit'
qulry usdnllj comes from thosp know
ing llttlo of present commercial con
ditions and, nothing of tho past. It
may bo' truthfully asserted thut no
nation, nor nations, will dominate
tho Pacific. Tho groat Pacific Ocean
Is not n "ma,ro clausum.". Tho com

Thero Is a sense, however, In
Which n nation or nations mav bo

In competing with other nations In

Reverting to tho recent diplomatic
understanding between Japan nnd
the United States, then, regarding
their Intent, purpose, and policy In
tho Pacific, It-Is ns sure as anything
human can bo that a reign nf peace
ful commercial activity, will perma
nently prevail In this great ocean,
nnd that, wha'ovcK. nation nmV have
tho most ships engaged In transpor
tation, tho United States nnd'.lapan
will furnish most of tho goods trans
ported. As nn earnest of tho commercial
future, let us rovcrt to n brief pe
riod In tho past. ,
In tho year 1870, Japan Imported
from the United States merchandise
to tho amount of $000;000, chiihIsI
Inc chiefly of kerosene nnd lamps. l:i
tho year 190C, tho Imports from tho
United States nmountcd to tho round
sum of $00,000,000, As lato na
1891, tho Import and export trade, of
Japtin amounted to a little less than
$100,000,000, and In 19uG, It reach
ed tho colossal sum of $110,000,000,
nearly nnc-linljf of "which vaa with
tho united Htnlcs.
It mny bo affirmed,, I think, with
out any color of boasting, that In tho
future, Japan Is certain to hold tho
Industrial nnd commercial hegemony
of Kantcrn Asia. Sho must of neces
sity, Import much of her' raw, partly
finished, and finished goods fiom
America, both In her dlrectund In
direct trade, Tho completion of tho
Isthmlnn Canal, giving quick access
to tho great Mississippi Valley, will
vastly lncrcaso tho trade activities of
tho two nntlono. Thcro nrn thoso
now living who will sco great Japan
ese and American freighters load on
the great lakes, go down tho Missis-
lulu, nnd discharge cargoes nt Yoko
hama, Kobe, NngitBiikl, Shanghai,
and many other ports In Kastcrn
Asia. No other country In propor
tion to Its size, population, nnd In
terests Involved ought to bo moro In
terested In tho American-Japanese
Understanding than tho Territory of
Hawaii. She, In n peculiar sense, typ
ifies tho necessity of peace, friend
ship, and good-wllll between tho two
great nations, nnd pcoplcH. Jnpan

ties of human 1 1 to. A largo number
ot Japnncso children havo been born
In this Territory, aro being educated

will know. Whnlovcr may betide,
these children will grow tip, nt least
many of them, ns patriotic Jnpanese
Americans. They will tako prido in
the peaceful nnd progressive achieve
ments' of tho race, ot tholr descent
nnd of tho rnce Into which they havo
been adopted. Prophecy is danger
ous. Tho wisest man cannot divine
tho future. Hut If present events
and tendencies cast their shadows be
fore, Hawaii will reap the greatest
reward from the nssurcd tranquility
resulting from tho last, and, perhaps,
tho gieatcst diplomatic triumph be
tween America nnd Japan; nnd tho
tlmo seems not distant when Hawaii
