Honolulu Is bound tn crow, nml
Us pcopto want (lie United Stales
Congress to merely keep pace, with It.
Apparently Hawaii's prosperity
'lost none of Kb steam by tlio two
days' vacation ot the Stock Ex
change. This would be an upportuno sea
son to turn the first shovel of earth
for the construction ot tlio IV.irl
Harbor naval clock.
Hawaii regrets that nuiro Con
gressmen did not como. They will
be the losers, iim they may never
know what they missed.

To tho Congressman who asked
first, What Is tho scoro? wo would
respectfully respond that Honolulu's
teams play almost as good ball as
Our battleships set the paco for
the world for going through the
water, and our merchant marine Is
beating all others In an apparent
race to get out ot It.
How many legltlmato smalt farm
rs have they in Kau now? And
how many purchasers of land who
arc sub-leasing their property to
some sugar plantation?
Hawaii's messngn to nil visitors Is:
If you don't &eo what ou want ask
for It. Congress, ot course, recipro
cates, but sometimes tho answer Is
a long time on tho way.
Tho message that tho Congress
men conveyed to the Pacific Coast
from Speaker Cannon will make ono
of the happiest dnjs In tho history
of Hawaii If It comes true
Congressional Wsltors may note
that the program offered them has
Just enough of tho serious bIcIo tn

If every driver of nn automobile
will do his best to observo the pro

the people will bo pleased. After n
short experience with tho practice ot
observing tho law, they may bo
granted the right to criticise.
Mr. Atkinson's dcpartiiro today
for a tour of investigation In tho
wilds of Russia recalls tho fact that
the Hoard of Immigration has not nl
lowed Mr. Campbell to escnpo from
the secret flics, so that tlio people
may know what progress Is being
made toward securing European Im
migrants from Southern Europo.
Tho Chronicle sajs: "San Fran
cisco is always glad tn rccelvo dele
gations ot Congressmen, but wo havo
learned by cxperlcnco thnt none aro
moro ready than Eastern Congress
men to grant nil reasonable demands
of the Pacific Const when they
realize their necessity."
Honolulu seconds this motion with
enthusiasm, particularly as tho cablo
reportB stated that tho Congressmen
aid before leaving San 1'ranclsto
that Pearl Harbor is the most Im
portant naval station In tho Pacific.

It Is n plcusurc ns welt as an hon

to Keep tho members of Congress

To do this tho Islands must havo
the right kind of assistance from tho
United States Congress. Wo aro
willing to bear nil tho burdens that

SHIP SUBSIDY AND MERCHANT
Itcport comes from tlio steamer
bearing tho Congressional visitors
that whilo tho party wcro In San

until they wcro tired ot It, and ship
subsidy became almost a joke.
It is a fair warning to tho Con-,

lives on tho shores of tho Pacific mil
