FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 1909
It is in a certain degree to be a
tharer in noble deeds to praise them
with all our heart. La Rochefou
cauld. Cutting watermelons appears to
bo one of the pleasant duties ot some
people engaged In the sugar busi
ness these days.

Every citizen ot Hawaii should
give what support opportunity may
place In his way to forward tho ex
tension of the reclamation service'
to these Islands.
Let's have a united community
behind the American steamship
proposition that will meet the de
mands for p.. ...angers as well as bid
for the freights and provide com
fortable stiilla for cattle, horses and
Russians nre on the way. Let's i
not meet them at the dock as the
Molokans were greeted. Preferably!
give them every opportunity to make'
good, and take them Into the family

From all accounts tho employers
of labor at Hollo have about as much
love for Immigration agents as Ho
nolulu once developed for the agents
coming Into this field. Our repre
sentatives, however, have the,, ad
vantage ot officldl approval back of
them, and In the long run the first
leception at Hollo may work out to
A passenger arriving by this
morning's steamer comments that
representatives of one of the through
lines don't Beem to care whether
people come to Honolulu or not.
This Is the way It will always be
with the through transportation
lines. They are seeking first the
through passenger, and Honolulu
plays second fiddle. Tho solution Is
tho building up of first-class local
steamship lines so there will be am
ple accommodation and nn exact
knowledge of what the tourist may
have (or (be round trip.
Guardians of some of our local
educational Institutions who allow
"harmless" hazing of students might
well direct their attention to the
fact that In. more than one first
class university of the mainland
students are beginning the year by
signing an agreement not to par
ticipate in hazing of any character
luring their stay at the Institution,
und violation of the agreement Im
mediately terminates their partici
pation in the privileges of the uni
versity. If this Is deemed advisable
for the advanced institutions, why
is It not pioper to follow the Bame
Ideal in preparatory schools?
Prosperity preachers of 4he main
land are disposed to hedge If the
latest circular of Henry Clews may
be taken as a criterion. In sum
ming up' the situation Clews Bays:
"The conservative spirit that Is
Bhowlng ItBolf in trade and indus
trial circles indicates, of course, that
our home trade demands for funds
will In large measure await the re
lease of' the crop money and that
there Is not likely to be sufficient
pressure for funds to cause stringen
cy. Nevertheless, it is qulto fair
to assume that money during the
autumn and winter will command
more profitable rental rates than
can be secured frnm iim in,.nmr...
ktahdard Investment securities at the
present price level, and there will be
be ft. disposition to abstain from ad
ditional, purchases even If n mntnrlol
amount of liquidation from this
source -should not ensue. The
liquidation of our' European loans
will also constitute a factor. Our
wheat crop does not promlso an ex
port surplus sufficient to supply
grain bills In anything like ade
quate proportions; our cotton crop,
as already noted, Is a disappoint
ment nad therefore will be a re
stricted factor In the foreign ex-

change situation; pnd fy'io uncer
tainties of our tariff relations with
France and Germany are calculated
to restrict' our export trade with
those, countries. Therefore the prob
abilities nre that our foreign indebt
edness must In large measure be
eventually paid by gold except so far
as foreign Interests may be Induced
to take the new securities that our
railroads will be compelled to Issue
during the next few months. These
have been tentatively underwritten.
The situation Is one suggesting
prudence. Investments should be
undertaken with gteat discrimina
tion and caution. 'The ups and
downs of the market should only be
taken Advantage for quick In and
out trading not for a long pull."
ANOTHER HATSON STEAMER
Captain Gent of tho Japanese liner
Tenyo Maru is quoted In one of the
local papers as very much In favor
of the suspension of tho coastwise
shipping laws in their application
to this port.
Wouldn't Capt. Rent of the for
eign liner be a "chump" if he wero
not pleased by a prospect of his for
eign ship securing the passengers
now carried by what little remains
of the American merchant marine?
Mention Is made of this alleged
happy prospect ot the foreign ship
operators with itho special purpose
of calling 'to the attention ot the
Matson Navigation Company the
opportunity it now has to step into
the; transportation breach of Hono
lulu, meet the demands of the peo
ple, gain their solid support and by
wiping out the need for 'talk ot
coastwise law suspension guaranteo
the upbuilding 'of tho American
merchant marine In these waters.
Increased business ot this port,
assured freight for tho Matson line
and the general call for better ac
commodations for tourists selecting
Honolulu as the centnal point for a
winter's season, all combine to cre
ate the feeling among leading busi
ness men of this city that the Mat
son Navigation Company should
place an older for another passen
ger and freight steamer as large or
larger than the Wllhelmlna.
Possibly some of the steamship
men will say that the public does
not know anything of the steamship
business. Possibly that is true.
Hut tho public does know that
the progress of this city and this
Territory will be largely gauged by
Its transportation facilities.
The public also knows that the
protected American lines now car
rying the freights should make am
ple provision for passengers.
It is further truo that the ''public
Is aroused as novcr before, and the
transportation managers who show
a disposition to look out for the pas
senger business will be given the
preference In the freights.
A good share ot tho people realize
that the only way to more
nearly approach entirely satisfac
tory conditions of transportation
for these Islands Is to de
velop a first-class lino ot local
steamers, so that the man who bujB
a round trip ticket will know Just
what ho Is purchasing, and will not
be subject to the uncertain bookings
ot a through boat.
Money Is available for Investment
In a new steamer. Local men of
means aro ready to put up their
snare in tho venture.
What more does the Matson Navl
gatlon Company desire?
Seattle Is to be given two of the
old freight-passenger liners on the
first of February.
If tho new Seattle-Honolulu trade
Is entitled to this consideration,
certainly the old-established trade
of the Honolulu-San Francisco run
should be entitled to two first-class
steamships, with the Improved Lur
llno thrown In.
There Is no denying tho fact that
the largo freight owning and freight
transporting Interests of Hawaii
have not hitherto given tho passen
ger accommodations the prominence
In their plans that has bean deserv
ed. Now that tho new era has
opened up, the newest of the ocean
transportation lines should set a

I would bo In trouble. I asked him It

I answered lilm as a gentleman: 'This

I can't be responsible for what will
happen to you.' I thought tho prcst
dento was running a bluff and I did
tot tako any particular notice ot what
hp said, and went about my business.
Tho presldento then went away and
i went into tlio town to look for a
house for an office. When I arrived
in the town I looked for my com pad re,

thought I would locato the office Ui-
on arrival there wo went up stairs
and left my two companions below.

uooiit renting tho house, I. looked out
of tho window nnd saw that my two

many men, This was about 6:30
o'clock In tho afternoon. I could hear
bad language against me. I finished
talking with the) owner or the house
about tho rent, and,l Went down stairs,
and called to my men to como and go

of men wero seen coming towards us
with a band and a Inrgti pout it, 'about
six feet by thrco feel, upon which' was
displayed. "Don't be fooled by tho

then that It was only fun, but when
