If Mr. Do Young has opened the

thirl Manager Schwerin of tho Pa-

tho leaps and hounds by which not
only tho presont business of tho port
of Honolulu has developed, but will
certainly develop In the future.
This paper does not wsrh to de

doubt that this community will bear
with his company and will Indeed

Wo have this suggestion to make,

Mr. Schwerin will cjalm that no
one knows his business ns well ns
he dot's. This Is n thousand times
true. Hut we beg to suggest thnt ho
has to mako his plans on broad and
progressive lines If ho Intends that
his company shall keep pneo with
the growth of tho business In this
port. He Is finding that It Is good
business to look more closely Into
the trmlc of this port. Ho will find
It betltr business to keep everlast
ingly nt It, even to tho point of put
ting on a local passenger liner nnd
catering to the business of these Is
lands direct and not ns Incidental to
the trnns-Paclflc trade.
Among other gratifying things
that Mr. Schwerin snld was the re
minder to tho short-sighted citizens
ot tho town that n suspension of tho
American coastwise shipping laws
means to this Territory nn exact
duplication In transportation ot
what has happened In the labor con
ditions. Make no nilstnke on this
point. Mr. Schwerin speaks from
tlons on a root like 'taks.' Tnko
back, tnko off, tnko up, pull In, pull
bnck, get In, get hold, got nway,
push, shove, knock out, spread out,

these words tho teachers rigged In

with bean bags that could be hoisted
to tho celling, lowered, gripped,

The practical result of this In
struction Is that tho employer has
n more efficient nnd responsive force.
It also serves to prevent many of tho
serious and fatal accidents that aro
due directly to tho men not knowing
tho language nnd therefore unable
to quickly heed the wnmlngs given.

"A further roferenco to tho cases Is

EDUCATING THE IMMIGRANT.
On every hnnd throughout tho

of greater care for the welfaro of
'n Immigrant. Tlio inspiration Is

the work appeals to tho employer of

Ono of the very Interesting move
ments In this direction to which at
tention Is called by the recent num
ber of the Outlook Is the labor enmp
schools started by the Society for
Orent numbers of Italians aro em
ployed by the contractors on tho
great constuctlon projects of New
York City and Stntc. These peo
ple form communities that live, in
shncks. nmld the most depressing
and Insanitary surroundings.
When Mes Snroh Wool Mooro of
the Society for Italian Immigrants
first suggested that night schools
should be started In these enmps,
she met with great opposition nnd
direct refusal from tho majority of
the employers of labor. Many of
them thought It was not profitable
to glvo the workman too much cdu
cation, besides they had got nlong
nil right In dnys gono hy, why
should they adopt nny new-fnuglcd
ideas? Finally, however, ono large
employer ot Italians allowed the
night school, or ramp school, ns It
Is commonly called, and the succcbs
was bo marked that tho plan has
been extended nnd the work has be
come recognized as "good business"
for the employers of Kuropean labor
other than Italians.
Miss Moore has prepared nn Illus
trated text hook in Italian based on
the conversational or Savcur meth
od, in which the lessons, vocabulary
and Illustrations deal with tho tools
nnd the working experiences of tho
scholars, At tho great Ashokan
dam a kindergarten for tho little
Italian children has been established
which means everything to the chil
dren, nnd is, ot courso, a grent help
to the women of the camp.
Ono of the practical phases of tho
work Ib the Instruction In the words
nnd phrases the men meet In their
every day work. "Wo hnvo a les
son," says Miss Moore, "wnicn we
call 'working In tho hole,' which
means building out of concrete, deep
under the river bed, tho core wall of
the dam. Some fifteen men for each

spread out the liquid concrete. The
empty bucket, hoisted nnd trundled
off on n raliln from fifty to a hun

many times a day. A close record

analyzed, forty-two verba used nnd

"Tho administrator having appealed
from the decree assessing tho tnx, two
questions nro presented for considera
tion, namely, (1) whether tho Inherit
ance tnx statute (Act 102, S. I.. 1005),
Is unconstitutional In that It Is con
trary to iiio fifth nnd fouitccnth
amendments to the constitution, nnd, If
not, (2) whether shares of stock In
domestic corporations owned y n
non-resident decedent nro subject to
the provisions of the statute.
"The second and main contention Is
that shares of slock In domestic cor
porations owned by a non-resident do
cedent nro not propeity within this
Territory und consequently not sub
ject to the provisions of the statute.
Section 1 of tho Act piovldes that
"All property which shall pass by will
or by tho Intcstntc laws of this Ter
ritory, from nny person who may die
sclrcd or posesBcd of tho same whllo
t. resident of this Territory, or which,
being wltldn this Territory, shall so
pass from any person who mny so die
while not a resident of this Territory '
shall be subject to tho Inx.
"Tho question, In brief. Is whether
tho shares refeired to are properly
wllhln this Territory. That the shares
cro property Is of course clear and Is
conceded. Counsel for tho appellant
nlso concedes tho power of thu Legis
lature, to provide for n tnx on n suc
cession to such shares of slock hut In
tlsts that It hns not done so. The fic
tion that personal property has Its
situs at tho domicile of Its owner Is
i.ot rolled on, as It Is conceded that
tho act covers personal property of a
nonresident which Is tanglblo und Is
physically Bltuatcd within tho Terri
tory. It Is argued that Bhnres of stock
tiro Intnnglblo property nud hnvo no
physical situs whntovor In tho nbsenre
of a prolslon to tho contrary In tho
Act. In tcctlon 21 of tho Act "prop
erty" Is defined to mean "tho renl nnd
