No general appeal has been made

From the cables and letters place'd

"QKORQI3 R. McCLELLAN."
Accompanying tho letter received
from Kuhlo on the last mall another
one was received from McClellan by
tho Chamber of Commerce which
read as follows:
"Dy this mall tho Delegate la writ
ing the Chnmbor In regard to tho pos
sibility of securing the remainder of
the Mahuka block for the Federal
building site. Blnco our conferenco
we havo taken tho matter up hero and
there and nre trying to work out
some plan by which we-can securo
tho lnrge additional sum necessary to
bring about this very desirable result.
"As soon as the Pearl Harbor Items
were struck out by the Senate Com
mittee, the Delegate nnd I nt onco
took-that matter up with the-members
of the committee nnd with other
friends In the Senate. We'thcn'went
directly to the President and werot
nble to enlist his aid, so that In the
end the Items wero restored In the
exact form wo desired.
Tho Organic Act bill has now
passed Congress, and we are doing
our best to get a vote on the suspen
sion bill before the session ends."
The matter was discussed briefly
by the chamber trustees but- action
on the matter' was referred until fur
ther advlce.was received, it being tho
opinion ot the meeting that there was
nothing the body could do at pres
ent In one of his letters Kuhlo stated
that Hawaii was getting considerable
moro In Its appropriation for tho
building, than was allowed for Fed
eral buildings on tho mainland.
The remaining time ot tbo meeting
was devoted to routine matters, the
Visit of the National Editorial Asso
ciation being discussed at length, be
ing brought up by'tho reading of let
ters from Secretary Wood ot the Pro
motion Committee and President
Baumgartner ot the association.
President Baumgarten wrote that
he had the association In lino for tho
trip hero but that detailed Informa
tion was wanted about what could be
done for them In tho way of enter
tainment, etc Ho stated that what
over was given toward the exponscs
of the excursion would bo more than
returned In free advertising In the
columns of tho papers represented by
tho members ot the party.
It appeared the opinion of tho meet
ing that it would be a fine thing to
have the newspapermen here but
that there were possibilities o't barm
as well as ot good In their visit and
that the party should bo taken care
of assiduously during Its stay In ord
er that the right Impressions ot the
country might be gained.
The matter was referred to the En

ot tho Chamber, and about $5000 will
