FEDERAL BUILDING CONDEMNA
Issuance of orders for tho con
demnation of the property necessary
for the enlarged Mahuku Federal
building site, means that the tux as
sessors and taxpayers are to have a
llnul rating placed on tho value of
business property In the heart of Ho
It Is the hope of everyone Interest
ed In the development of the city that
the condemnation will proceed with
the greatest possible dispatch, nnd
not be marked by u continuous war of
technicalities, the practical result or
which Is to delay the verdict, but not
Tho proceeding from tho Govern
ment's standpoint Is n move to estub-
llsh the value of tho property, nnd It
Is difficult to understand how the
property owners could profit by any
tactlcB that might delay the heurlng
and tho final verdict.
Although there aie differences of
opinion ns to the worth of the Fort
street block wanted, wo question If
there Is a single taxpayer of Honolulu
who would havo the owners forced In
to ncceptlng less than the full legiti
mate value of their holdings. This Is
trim notwithstanding the exhibit of
the record that the land and buildings
nre held at higher values than nro
shown to have been returned for tax
ation purposes, nnd taxes ure sup
posed to bo paid on full values. We
cannot believe thnt the taxation re
turns of tho past fow years will not
have an Important bearing on the
Ilut let the verdict of 'the Jury bo
what It may, the valuation placed on
the property should be accepted us
If the price under the condemnation
should como within the amount ap
propriated by Congress, It should be
accepted by the property ownors.
If the property Is worth more thnn
Congress has appropriated, the differ
ence should he mnde up by an appro
priation either from loap or orient
funds by tho city of Honolulu.
Under the most favorublo pro
cedure, months must pass befoio we
can secure a decision. Should
the crdlct of the court be

GEN. WOOD'S FLEA FOR AN
Whether Gencrul Ieonnrd Wood Is
a more efficient head of tho army or
not he seems to be ablo to get a more
general discussion of what our army
needs than many of his predecessors.
It may be thnt the Generals trained
to the strict secrecy characteristic of
army discipline do not appreciate tho
value of publicity in dealing with the
business of the army. They may be
like the politician who expects the
people to think ns he dues because he
knows It Is so, und any fool ought to
see It and do us he Is told.
General Wood appears to havo had
eiiojiglrexperlenco In civil, life to take
an aggressive position In' presenting
the common sense propositions of
urmy necessities. The recommenda
tions made In his annual report have
been widely published und he bus

One of tho points of especial Inter
est locally Is General Wood's urgent
request that provision be made for
twenty additional regiments of In

serting that "tho calls upon tho In

ture, Inddent to tho garrisoning of

mus of Panama."

In this connection company com

one of the greatest causes of Ineffi
ciency of I n fan try troops In the ileld

nfter tho feet of their men."
The report Invites attention to tho
efforts being made at various places
to do away with target practice with
the big guns on the ground of Injury
to the ndjolnlng houses nnd property.
Gen. Wood recommends that the re
quests for the discontinuance of this
target practice bo disregarded until
Investigation shows whether or not
these complaints uro worthy of seri
ous attention. He adds that gcnernl
suspension of target practice at many
batterles will seriously nffect the effi
ciency of tlio Coast Artillery, ns It
would be difficult to maintain bat
teries In first class condition wjien
the troops assigned to them kno-'

trained troops nt manoeuvres. Tho

inese, pius sucn manoeuvres ns we
may be able to have, where the troops
opposed to each other will consist of
nt least one full 'division, furnish the
only opportunity our general officers
will havo to prcpuro themselves for
tho handling of troops under condl
tlons simulating those of war.
"Wo must not forget that service

ganized native enemy In which the
number of troops engnged Is smnll
nnd the opposition weak Is not n prcp-
nrnttan of nny particular valuo for

remarks made on board the ship es
terday. During the time lie. wns In the Phil
ippines tho Governor General's yacht
was" placed at his disposal to tour the
southern Islands and In thnt way he
lulled piaccs thnt would have been
difficult to reach otherwise, and
looked Into tho trade possibilities
After transacting a little business
nt the office of tho local ngents yes
terday morning, Mr. Bchwcrln was
taken In tow by Colonel Snm Parker,
who was nt-the steamer to meet him,
nnd the remainder of tho day was
passed at tho Parker place at Manon
After Ills return to Manila from the
trip to the southern islands Mr,
Schwerln In nn Interview said that he
was disappointed to see the small pro
portion of the foreign trade of the
Islands handled by Americans nnd the
United Stat.es. This ho said he thought
due to the lack of euro exercised by
American manufacturers In catering
to lorelgn trade.
As nn example of what ho meant,
Mr. Schwerln showed the Cnblenews
representative n cracker box, such ns
Is used by American llrms for ship
ping their products to tropical coun
tries. On opening the box, he called
attention to the fact that a strip of
tin about a quarter of an Inch wide
remained around tho top of the box,
which served' us an Impediment on
removing the contents, often breaking
them. The covering provided for the
opened box wns also Inadequate, and
the box Itself wns not Impervious to
moisture, Australian nnd lmgllsh
shippers of the same product, Mr.
Schwerln says, provide n perfectly
moisture-proof box, with u top which
when removed leaves no Jagged edges,
and provides n good covering for the
Mr. Schwerln, then pointed to u col
lection of canned goods, and called
attention to the fact that the foreign
goods all came In small tins, while
the American tins were nil of Inrger
size. This, he said, accounts lo n
large oxtcnt for the popularity or the
foreign brands. As another example
of American backwardness, Mr.
Schwerln pointed out, thnt while Jap
anese shippers of pickled goods wero
using a small barrel fastened with a
special kind of wire-null, such as is
popular In foreign countries, the
American shippers were still cling
ing to the Inrgo barrel, using the Iron
nulls for fastening.
Mr. Schwerln took ri number of for
eign packed articles with him from
Manila, nnd will try to convince
American shippers, that tho methods
and customs of one country can not
always be Imposed upon another, even
