tho snap and precision with which tho

brought forth round after round of
applause as tho difficult and artistic
pyramid stunts woro pulled off. Tho
boxing exhibition was tho basis for
lots of fun and tho boys went tit it
with a vim that was contagious, Tho

did not encourago boxing although It

At tho Chamber of Commcrco
meeting yesterday afternoon, a very
Interesting nnd Instructive address
was delivered by Murston Campbell,
Superintendent of Public Works, on
"Harbor Improvements and Various
After tho minutes of tlto previous
meeting had been read by Secretary.
Wood, J, V. Morgan stated that,
owing to tho resignation of i:. 1
Illshop ns a trusteo of tho chamber,
another trustee had to be elected.
Upon a mutton being made by, Mr,
Cooko and seconded' by Mr. Hoogs,
A. W. T, Ilottomloy was nominated
',. K, Myers, who goes to Iltlo to
nccept tho management of tho new
Hawaiian Trust Company, has also
resigned, and his resignation was ac
cepted with regret.
J. F. Morgan introduced Marston
Campbell. Tho speaker, without any
preamble, entered upon his subject
by stating that It was to bo a heart

cqnslderg that: governments act slow

Speaking of ' Honolulu' harbor,
which Is thought my many to be ono
of tho most expensive, harbors in the
United States, Mr. 'Campbell said:
"Honolulu harbor Is ,oPq, of tho
cheapest In tho, world. The pilotago
charges are one-third cheaper than
those of San Francisco. Honolulu
charges two ccntB 'per registered ton
for every twenty-four bourn; San
Francisco charges Ave cents per
,on'" , '.H,
In regit id to the water supplied
to ships, Mr. Campboll stated that
the waterfront-charges are S2S00 per
million gallons.- Tho citizens of this
city aro charged fcyon and a half
centB per thousand 'gallons, accord
ing to meter rates, and think they
are being robbed because they aro
getting water 'its' cheaply as 9G per
tent, of the water works, of tho Unit
ed StntcH rhurgo nt that figure
"Tho water suppllod to shipping
to June 30, 1909, amounted to S1C
505.30, and from that' date to De
cember 31, 1909, tho water supplied
to shipping amounted to $17,473.96,
or, roughly speaking, eomo 134,000
for tho year. -
"Honolulu consumes 400 gallons
