MEN WHO BELIEVE IN HAWAII
. ' r-t ,
Honolulu has seen examples of
men who have mado fortunes In
these islands and, having full confi
dence In the future of Iho Territory,
hnvo turned about and rc-lnvcsled
their surplus, their capital and
"mortgaged their life" to go Into
other new enterprises that make for
,ther development of Hawaii.

other to speak of sttcji men in un
coTnpllmenlnry language. "Conser

It Is worth noting, however, that
Hawaii has gained its greatest pros
perity through tho energy and the
courngo nnd the determination ot
Jnst such men. If It were not for
them, inls would be a Territory ot

would be In a position to quietly
fold their tents and depart for other

There Is a use for ovcryono In
this world, nnd the ultra conserva
tive has his place, but just at the
present time his Influence Is being

money sapped from this market by
Investment to further assist "out
