Honolulu couldn't ask a better fa
vor ot tho Government thnn to hnvo
the Federal building tnko In tho
whole block, nnd Undo Sam ran
never ncqulro the land at n mora
favornblo flguro than during theso
days when Honolulu is Just begin
ning to grow.
Wo point with pride to tho fact
that the Who's Who column of tho
visiting Congressmen shows that a
largo number arc or hac been nows
paper men. That's why It Is so gen
erally remarked that this delegation
of Congressmen Is qulto tho Cost
looking, most representative nnd
more nearly perfection when com
pared with any Congressmen Hawaii
has hitherto encountered.
Here arc a few figures of the du
ties collected In tho customs district
of Hawaii: 190.', $1,043,404.40;
190C, $1,218,761.13; 1907, H.I5S,-
843.48; 1908, $1,550,157.32. Every
dollar of this has been paid Into tho
' Federal Treasury, and every dollar
of It has been paid on goods utcd In
Hawaii. No better cvldenco could
bo given that this Territory is bear
ing its full sharo of whntcier burden
thoro may be associated with tho
support of the Government.
