more cordial reception than was ac

favorable action in Honolulu for the

THE WORLD'S FINEST CITV.
lloston Ilostoti of the effete East
has Bet out with the declared de
termination to make that city tho
finest city In tho world by 1915.
It was always supposed that llos
ton has thought Itself the finest city
In the world since 181G or before,
but for the purposes of present com
ment that Is beside tho mark.
To be the finest city In the world
by 1910 Is a splendid ambition jmd
It should appeal with especial foico
to tho peoplo of Honolulu. If lloston
has a right to aspire, why should not
I Honolulu get In line as a competitor?
Is there any other city on the faco
ot the earth that has more brilliant
prospects or that Is In a better pofl-
'n to becomo tho flnest city In tho
.Id by 1915?
That Is tho year when the Panama
Canal should be completed and this
e'ty will be tho center of the great
est traffic 'on the greatest ocean and
enjoying proximity to the greatest
naval center of tho world,
lloston lias a past tp overcome.
Honolulu has a future that Is unim
peded except possibly by ovcr-con-servaflsm.
Hut since lloston has set the pace,
It Is well to study Its articles ot
faith. Tho following Is what llos
ton has set out to do In five years.
Sixteen main propositions were In
cluded in tho (list draft ot tho "llos
(l) Expert accounting for the
city by 1910.
(2) Published accounts of waste
and other losses by city
(3) He?t public health depart
ment In world by 1910.
(4) An accounting ot the human
resources of the city nnd suburbs.
(6) Improvement in relations of
cmplojcrB nnd cmplO)es,
(G) Organized movement for ex
tension pt industries and Introduc
tion of new Industries.
(7) Determination of the capaci
ties of nearby cities and towns and
plans for their further development.
(S) System of education to Qt
boys and girls for life-work.
(9) Intelligent system ot trans
portation for city, State, and New
(10) Making ot plans showing
present and physical possibilities ot
(11) Publicity of tho "Doston
plan" by Illustrated lectures.
(12) Courses ot lectures on civil
government, health, business, etc.
(1) Increase of branches of pub
lic library with book circulation In
shops, factories, schools, etc.
(1) Circulation ot pictures by li
brary with nceompanylng Jectures.
(15) More music In public places.
(1C) Adoption of wagc-earnorb
Insurance and old-ago pensions.
The lloston plan originated from
the belief that lloston Is had. This
we refuse to accept for Honolulu.

Low, her owner, kept out of sight all

craft, was equally uncommunicative.
He was ready enough to tell nbotit
tho state of tho weather and to give
llko unimportant details, but he cm
phntlcnlly declined to say why tho
Concord went to Christmas Island.
Tho Concord left hero rebrunty 24
and nrrlved at tho Palmyra Island
February .10. After remaining there
for some tlmo she proceeded to Tan

and. It took her eight days to reach
