commendation nt the hands of the
general manager of the corporation
In dealing with the hnrbor of Hono
lulu Mr. Schwcrln said: '
"I have no doubt but that the
people of this Territory aro looklng.
Into the future. When tlio I'nnnmn
canal Is completed the water way is
bound to work n revolution In busi
ness conditions In Hawaii and par
tlculaily In the commercial Import
ance of the port. The conditions
nio such Hint Honolulu must become
a moat Important port of c.ill. Thero
is no doubt that joii have n splendid
hnrbor. This, tho western outpost

standpoint, Is bound to be visited by

Instead of water In your harbor.
Hongkong, tho greatest port in tlio
world, siloes not want piers; she
wants every bit of harbor that fiho
has. Lighterage is demanded that
the waterfront may not be taken up
"When a ship calls hero her cap
tain docs not want to lie out In the
ocenn. Ho wants a harbor where
be lias room to maneuver. You havo
seen the Mongolia or tlio Korea turn
In gin nur harbor. You know what
else in the hnrbor at the time some
thing must happen.
"You need moro water. If oil

area of wntcr In the harbor, nnd re
ducing the land, do so by nit means.
"You linvo probably noticed for
soma time past that the red lino on
our ships has been growing nnd
growing. It has reached tlio point
where the water ballast In our tea
sels Is greater than tho cargo ca
pacity. "When I came to the l'aclllc Mall
Comp.iny I found the ronecrn heav
ily In debt. Hiinkruptcy was staring
Hie company In the face. I began to
consider wnjs nnd means for send
ing American m.iuufactured articles
to the Orient. I took tho matter up
with Mr. Huntington nnd asked for
a largo ship. The experiment prov
ed successful, nnd we soon built up
nn enormous business. Then the
Inter-State. Commerce Commission
came nlong and said Hint wc were
"We could not comply with the
rulings of the commission In regard
to tho public itlon of notice of change
of rates, because tho change In the
Orient changed dally. Wo got a
ruling allowing us to chnngo rates
as often as wc liked, but we were
required to cable all changes to the
commission, and follow the cable
gram up with a letter, Just as soon
as the ship affected n ached ort.
"A new clerk fulled to mall tho
letter on the arrival of one of our
ships in San rrnuclsro, nnd the
commission pounced upon us. The
commission did not Indict me, but It
Indicted tho l'aclllc Mall. Finally
Judge De Haven dismissed the case
on the ground that the commission
had no jurisdiction.

Grape - Nuts:
QOME people have tried them and failed to
like them. Isn't that true of many good
things that you are fond of today? How many
people like alligator pears the first taste?
But most people like GRAPli-NUTS right
from the start.
And all people like them after a brief trial;
and, what is more, like the health results pro
duced by this great food.
GRAPE-NUTS arc made of whet, barley,
salt, and yeast, constituting a food containing the
natural nutritive elements of Wheat and Barley
thoroughly cooked by scientific baking. '

gctliei with the countiy equipment
will provide for the Installation or 28U0
telephones. Hut I anticipate that with
in n short time from tho beginning of
Its operation tho growth of the plant
will warrant additional equipment. In
fact, I shall bo greatly surprised If
within a 5 ear from tho time the uuto
malic system Is installed the Mutual
company docs not hnvc n thousand

bo furnished provides that additions
up to flvo thousand lines can bu made
without additional Installation.

that there can bu nothing finer than
tho new sjstoin wo lire going to in
stall. It Is the finest Hint money can
buy. The principal thing Is to pro
vide for the convenience of the public
and that Is what this new sjstem will

ninety dnjs for the equipment to be
shipped nml received here, nnd It will
tiiku three months or more to install
It. Mm will bu sent on fiom Chicago
to do the work and the) will begin as
toon as the material Is on tho ground,
There will bo virtually no Inconven
lenco to tho public In changing over
from ono 'phono to the other. Tho
automatic 'phones will bu installed In
the holism and tho old 'phones will
not bo taken out until after tho hjs
tern has been changed over. This can
no dono practically In ono night
probably on a Sunday night so as to
cnuse the least Inconvenience. It will
simply mean cutting out ono sjstoui

bo twenty swltchboirds, and It will
not tnko over four men In tho bvvltch
room to look art it them
"The automatic telephone has been
greatly Improved lately and that It Is
Impossible to get the wrong number
If tho right number Is called. Instead
of the big, cIiiiiibj instrument In use
In BOino other cities that have tho au
tomatic sj stem, the new 'phono is a
rmullcr and handler Instrument, with
a much smaller dial and on that works
much fuster than coes J ho old kind.
In fuct, there Is no appreciable hesita
tion In tlio working of tho dial.
"If liny 'phani gets out of order, tho
fact Is Immediately recorded In tho
rwltchroom so that tlio switchboard
man knows it bofiirn tho user of tho

straighten matters out. Thero nro buz
