Intermittent rovlvnl of tho war
talk Involving tho names of the
United Slate.s ami Japan has brought
forth from a correspondent of tho
.Now York World a communication
thnt Is very sensible In some of IU
conclusions and suggestions. This
ommuiilcntlon, written by a Japan

quently oxprebsed by thoso In this
Icommuiilty best informed on the
commercial status of the two na
Itlons. As to tho effectiveness of

considerable difference of opinion,
but thero fceeins little doubt of the
litter folly of Japan going to. war

To the Editor of tho World:
Rev. Mr. Oleson riai published a
letter In which ho declnres what he
Intended to say on the prohibition
question and tho morning payer dur

The incident Is of Importance only
showing tho recklessness
which so many ot tho prohibition ad
vocates approach their subject, and
their departure from the usually
xai.n methods of thought nnd speech
when they are laboring under the
Intoxication or u prohibition brain
The morning paper appreciated
this when It said of Mr. Oleson's
original speech, "As, Mr. Oleson did!
not know what ho 'was talking
about, there Is no occasion to reply
to him." Judging from tho later
. men statement ot .Mr. uiesan, n

Wo doubt, however, that anything
near a majority of tho citizens of
the Territory of Hawaii can be so
misled, nnd It Is perhaps rortunato
for nil concerned that nn exhibi
tion of what prohibition enthusiasm
will do In tho way of liitoxlcr-tloit
has been mado while those who think
calmly on this very important mat
ter nro making up their minds on
what Is best for Hawaii.
(There Is one troublo about this war

Tho Japancso aro not all Idiots
Heaven knows wo have our share of

And then Japan Is not on exag

United States? Soma peoplo may
like to gp Into n light for the puro
and unadulterated luxury of being
beaten to death; wo don't. Neither

Why? He-cause, In tho first place,
we "can not afford to murder our best

could, which we could not. Nowa

In the second place, wo con not
fight because we havo not tho fight
ing machines wherewith to fight.
Our navy? Not ono of our ar
mored ships has tho coal cair.iclty to
steam 3441, miles to Honolulu and
put up a light for battleships with
out coal are more helpless than sail
ing vessels. Not even tho latest ad
dition to our navy, tho lD.lliO-ton
Satsuma, has a coal capacity 'exceed
ing 2300 tons. Why not repeat tho'
Hojestvoimkl feat of coaling the fleet
at sea? '
Hut why should Japan wish tile
fate of tho Suvoroft nnd her sisters
for tho slil pa of tho Nippon navy? '
If tho Husslaiis had not been top
heavy with the weight of coal even

not have shown to our guns so much

Impossibility ot occupying Hawaii
and establish there a baso with coal

what then? Then we shall be call

Impossibility. Wc shall bo forced

Now one mlraclo Is n little loo
much for the Nippon navy to per-
form at (ho present stiiue of its de-,
velopment, and tho adding of nn-
othpr Impossibility does not make
the solution any easier. i
In Bhort, before Japan could think
of fighting America sho must fight
geography: sho must fight the 'Pn-
clflc Ocean and conquer It. Usual-

entirely new to (ho audience, but it
superb beauty and brilliancy combined
with a most finished nnd nrtlstlc rend-;
crlng, gained n henrly recall. Owing
to n lengthy program, encores could
.not bo responded to ns frequently us
tho njidlenco would havo liked. The
only encoro tnken by Mr. Hnben was
tho "Klfln Danco ' of Jensen.
His next bracketed numbers wero
romance "Hhclnberger" (for left hand
only) and tho over welcome "Caprice"
by Paganlnl'Schumnnn. Hoth theso
numbers limo been mado known to
music lovers of this city. Tho pianist
was rccii nt his best in tho Homnnco,
has almost "titanic" left-hand tech
nique being remarkably evident, while
the delicate contrasts of tone color
wero beautifully brought In.
In tho second part Mr. Hoben brack
eted ICtudo In C sharp minor nnd
Scherzo In 11 Hat minor (Chopin). In
place of tho latter ho played "Air tin
Uallet." a very brilliant, very spark
ling French piece. Tho last piano
solo lo bo played by this distinguished
artist was "Irish Airs," nrrnnged by
Henedlct and partly rearranged by
Mr. Hoben. Theso piano solos wero u
superb treat, mid Honolulu audiences
will look forward to thu time, when
another concert ot such sterling qual
ity will bo arranged by local artists.
Mrs. Hobo, with her rich contralto,
made n marked Impicsslon, partic
ularly In "Aria," ono of Mr. dioben's
compositions, nnd which is considered
a very big concert pleco. Mine. Al-

nnd n great friend of tho latu Queen

plenty of spirit nnd was much appro-
! elated. Tho duet fioin Carmen by-
