KEEP BEACH CLEAN
Editor Evening Rullotin:
Dear sir: If space will permit I
should llko to say a few words nbout
the Walklkl Reach. And In the
first place I will say that while this
beach is in many respects one of tho
finest In the warld, it still leaves
very much to be desired. And one
ot the most objectionnl features Is
the-, large amount of coral that U
still to be found closo to tho shore,
and against which peoplo aro con
ttantly getting hurt.
I will Bay that I know of a grcnt
number of persons who have been
badly hurt, there, and there Is said
to be one person in the hospital now

badly hurt 'from this cause.- And -1
will say, from my own experience,
that 1 know ot men who are kept
lame about half their time from
kicking against this coral and other
substances. And I know ot one
thnt got badly hurt from running
against an iron rail which Bomo one
had carelessly thrown .Into the sea.
Tliere are other objectionable sub-
ctnnces, such as limbs ot trees that
get thrown Into the sea nnd get Im
bedded In' the sand, but ii is' mainly
tlio coral that causes the most
trouble. Now, I would like to ask
If there Is no help for this stato of
things, and if nothing could ho done
to clear (he beach of these objec
tionable things. Some persons
think the prisoners could be set to
work there nnd dig out most ot
them, nnd which would certainly he
a good plan if it could be done.
Others think that 'tho hotel people
and clubs could do something to
wards clearing' the beach of some of
this coral and other material.
Certainly something' should be
done to prevent people - from throwing-
uiu -uotiien, obi ironrmu'iicH aim
ether rubbish into tho sea, which U
likely to hurt peoplo If not co-it them
their lives. SOmo of the members of

I-et them build for themselves tlio
vessels they need in order not only
to take care of tho present trade but
to Increase tho trade to possibly many
times Its pretcnt proportions.' It la
not unlikely thnt steamers which
could make tho trip from San Fran
cisco to Honolulu In four and a half
days would greatly Increase the
tourist travel. Two boats would glvo
a weekly service both ways. I have
myself prepared plans for a fast boat
which would give tho necessary ac
commodation, speed, And comforts re
quired by the kcrvlce. Such vessels
would cost about 11,250,000. each.

The points raised bring to lights
tho Incongruous nature of tho Unit;
cd States naturalization laws'. In
the first Instnnco courts held that
only freo whites of the European
nnd American continents at the tlnio
were ellgllilo for naturalization,
were eligible for nautrarallzatlori.
During thoso days the .Caucasians

Then came tho Civil War with tho
passionate championship of 'tho ne
gro, in the effort to prove tho South
a terrible wrong-doer. Resulting'
from this conflict and the negro
question. Africans Were made ellgl
blp as citizens. Thus tho Europeans,
nnd Africans may enter upon privi
leges ot citizenship, but Asiatics nro
excluded on the ground that their
Institutions hnve not taught the'm
sufficiently In the principles ot free
dom. Mr. McCourt protests against ac
cepting Ellis on mcro racial grounds.
His argument is that ot early tradi
tions. Assyria, being a subject coun
try under Turkey, has given Its peo
ple no opportunity to grasp'the prin
ciples of free government. Ellis Is
conceded to be a white, man. He Is
also said to bo of good moral charf
ncter, and lu every respect worthy of
citizenship. Theso facts will be ad
vocated in his behal't by Attorney
Wright. Also, it -is said, that tho
fact will be adduced tlint'Ellls-has
