Christmas week hns ot courso been
quia; In many lines of business with
tho exception of those supplying the
public with gifts for the Holiday1
The, Holiday?, that started In tho
earliest and ns the best Honolulu
has ever known In tho retail trade,
have, .kept up the record to the la
day. Every business man of Fort
street, reports Increased business nnd
nearly all ot theni have been rushed
to the limit.
This city; hnsc n larger l'ort-strcct
buying population than It has had
since T9O0, and It should bo Bald to
the credit of our business houses
that the goods bought for nn dis
played this season ure more up-to-date
and attrnctjvc than over be
fore. Merchants nil seem to havq
sensed the coming of the good
times, laid In ample stocks nnd of
tho' best lines.
Honolulu's American population,
Is increasing steadily. Tho 1-Vdcrnl
operations ore bringing In a good
number .of skilled workmen. Assist
ant Secretory Cooper of the Promo
tion Committee reports that there
are more tourists In tho city than
ever beforo at this time of year and
enough ore coming to tax-tho trans
portation lines to the limit. In addi
tion tp this the present enterprises
of tho city are attracting or rnthcr
demanding a good timber of skill
ed and well paid employes. The
leading automobile garages Have
been constantly Increasing their
ctaffs, nnd, tho, class of men requir
ed are of the best skilled mechanics.
So It Is all over the city. The local
supply Is not enough, and with the
expansion that Is going on every
where a man hero and ono thcro go
to mnlic up n good sized total of
desirable new-comers, many of whom
Many express tho belief that after
the holiday rush ot business thcro
will bo a very decided slump. It will
bo quieter of course, but tho man
who figures that Honolulu has stop
ped growing and, business will fall
off In the future falls utterly "to
grasp the drift ot events. January
may be a comparatively quiet month;
Just enough to give tho business
houses time for stock taking. Hut
tbo business rush will bo greater
than ever .In tho following months.
Tourists will be coming to tho Isl
ands In numbers to test tho capacity
of the city accommodations. The
return of the Pacific Fleet for a
week In February wl keep, everyone
humming. And nbovo all other
things Is the steady onward march
of tho Federal work,' always moving
along very quietly, but always bring
ing In new men, and always build
ing something that, la permanent and
assuredly adding to tho cltlzon po
pulation or this island.
It becomes almost tiresome to ro
peut It, but tho fuct nevertheless re
mains that tho Fedora) government
has hardly started on tho margin or
Its work on this Island. That be
ing truo the business rush of today
win b(o t(io regular business detail
Tho coming year should seo a
good share or this great development
.work In full swing.. This not only
Includes the many features of mak
ing Pearl Harbor u, nuvnl butu but
coincident with that Is to bo tho
construction ot urmy posts and con
tinuation of- tho fortlflcutlons.

drop seven-and' eight dollars, n share

utterly foolish. Each of those pro

This could have been done and by

only as n legltliridYe business movo
but a very proper one. Mr. Damon
has not seen It that way however.
Ills financial policy has been to
build up rather than revive through
