there Is a largo number ot citizens
on the mainland who have voted the

Secretary Wood Wants
Several Important matters were
discussed at jestcrduy's, meeting ot
tho Promotion Committee. After
Acting-Secretary Cooper had read
tho minutes of the previous meeting,
the question of having the 'National
Editorial Association visit Hawaii as
a sldo issue was brought up.
Ir. Raumgartncr, editor of the
Santa Anna Register, Is desirous of
bringing a party of editorial writers
to Hawaii duMng their visit to Cali
fornia, when tho association will
meet this ear. Tho Promotion Com
olttcc considered this matter of such
Importance that they thought the
Clumber ot Commerce, Merchants,'

Major and Supervisors should take
the matter up for discussion, and
extend a r Ration to this associ
ation. vhcn tl. ed'toria! association met

After a letter from Major Win

A letter wns received from Secrc
tary Wood, In which It wns stated
that tho steamship Queen of Iho Pa
cific Coust Steamship Company would
In all probability be sent to this
city during the summer nnd later to
Hlto vvltli a bpccIqI excursion n board.
Tho Queen' will be dispatched from
rort I.o Angelei or Redondo, and
the visitors will ho given nn oppor
tunity ot visiting tho volcano.
Several letters wcro read from
Secretnry Wood, written from San
I'ranclsco nnd Ixis Angeles, In which
it was stnted that a direct lino of
steamships from Vancouver, 11. C,
to 'Hawaii will probably bo establish
ed In the near future. Secretary
Wood also wroto that he thought
the Territorial government should
appropriate 50,000 through Its Leg
islature to maintain a profcr exhibit
for the Hawaiian Islands at tho Pa
nama Canal Imposition to be held
either In New Orleans, f.oc. Angelw,
Salt Diego or Washington, I). C, lu
191ft, whichever city Is chosen. Sec
retary Wood stated that ho consid
ered an appropriation ot $100,000
would not be any too largo a sum
to expend In Hawaii's exhibit.
A letter was read from W. M,
Milne, manager ot tho Los Angclca
Kxamlner excursion party, which
will visit .this dty In August on lu
way to the Tar Hast, nuking what
rates for meals and automobile rhlri
could bo mado fur n party uf 200,
this being the number he expected
to conduct on tho tour. A rate of
S2 per plato for a lunch had been
quoted by Mr. Hcrtschc of the Mo
ana, which he considered exhorbt
tant. J. r. Rush moved that the
acting secretary be Instructed to
confer with Manager Hertsche and
ascertain tho lowest rato ho would
be willing to charge per capita for
lunch to these excursionists.
Mr. Milne stated that the hotels
St. Trancls and Palate, uf San I'ran
clsco, had quoted him n rato of tl
per plate, nnd he considers that i
fair rato nnd Is willing to pay that
amount; but that Jl! a plato he can
Dot, iiid will not, pa).
The Promotion Committee thought
that this excursion party should nut
be held up, as It would be the cause
ot much unfavorable comment by
the members ot this party when they
returned to the Coast and spoke of
the hotels of this city as charging
12 a plato for Just nn ordinary
The acting secretary was Instruct

R. II. Trent stated that as he was
