What about that "Seeing Honolulu'
tour for business men of the city?
That could bo going on white the onn
ltntlon Commission Is watting on the
Public Works office for maps.
Think of what the officers of the
United States nray and marine hos
pital Bcnlco did In Panama In three
years. Then cast your eyes on what
Honolulu has to do In two years, and
the speed with which the people tiro
tackling the Job.
t , The people expect the Hoard of Su
pervisors to asBumo nil the responsl-
blllty for street and road construction. Superintendent Campbell Is credlt
whether the work Is done by tho city ed wlth havlnE """do the statement
or let out to contract. That Is what
was meant by the election results f
Business men should hac nln8
In mind the fact that tho permanence
of prosperity in this city depends
solely on the success and speed with
which Us sanitation is Improved, liv
ery dollar and every moment given to
sanitation work is tlmo and money
Invested for certain roturns.
Honolulu has a number of big prob
lenis.to meet In tho Immediate future,
It is merely a question of whether the
men in charge will rise to tho occas
ion and show that they arc big men.
Panama had big problems handled for
a whllo by little men, and wo all
know tho result.
It Is mighty bad politics and mighty
bad government, because It Is too ab
solutely unnecessary to Jump a Fed
eral road expert onto the Counties
just at a time when tho peoplo of tho
Counties have been nrouscd to tho
point of placing their road construc
tion In tho bands of competent men
who thoroughly understand local con
ditions. David Lloyd George said to an Eng-
llsh audience, "I would treat tho man
who receives rents or ground rents
from Insanitary dwellings which kill
little children I would treat him as
I would the receiver of stolen prop
erty." Is there anyone in Honolulu
ready to talk like that, and then act
' ' ' ' .t
Perhaps the Kopaa land business
Is .to be handled in such a way that
whatever happens, it will be messed
up Into such a maze of complications
that all persons having anything to
do with it can tell a different story
and. each one tell tho truth. Tbo'pub
lie meanwhile would like to sco soino
ono.who can and will settle tho whole
thing In a short sharp buslncssllko
manner, and leave out the long story.
Honolulu Republicans made a hard
light last fall to put the local gov
ernment In such shape that they
would elthor control nil or nothing
and be hold responsible accordingly,
Th'ey wcro placed In a position to
control all tho Important woiklng de
partments of tho government and

Birabic. Hut certainly nothing Is
Bn'ned by paying out money for a
inan to como to .the Islands from
abroad, when tho road Bystems on
all the Islands are In charge of com
petent engineers who understand the
conditions under which, and the ma
terial with which tho work has to be
done. The public has paid for the
education of qulto a number of peo
ple connected with the road construc
tion In these Islands, Let's work with

know and enre little, but comment of
this character gios strength to tho
feeling on the Island of Hawaii that
the head of tho public works depart
ment gives nioro attention to the per
sonal phases of his position than is
Justified. Tho county engineers of tho
Territory are all emclent men. Tho
Superintendent of I'ubllc Works has
enough and moro than enough to do

which there Is not tho slightest doubt
of his authority to direct.
HONOLULU HARBOR SIXTY. YEARS
AGO AND NOW.
Present day interest in wharf con
struction for Honolulu harbor to meet
tho demands of steadily growing com
merce Is u constant reminder of tho
development of this port as the cen
ter of trado fbr tho islnnds and tho
common meeting point of tho trans
A moro ImprcsBlvo reminder Is to
take a look back sixty years and noto
what tho citizens nnd government of
ficers wcro doing then. And we may
at least assume that Honolulu will
grow as rapidly In the next sixty
years as It has the moro than half
An editorial In "The Polynesian" o'f
May 25, 18S0, Is undoubtedly a fair ex
pression of tho business atmosphere
of Honolulu at a tlmo when the peo
ple wero beginning to realize that the
future held something more for this
port in. the general commerce of the
Pacific than was represented In the
trade of the whaling fleets.
We quote liberally from the edi
torial of "The Polynesian" as It sets
forth so well the present-day little
ness of tho things that were great In
thoso days only sixty years 'ago, In
"In connection with the commerce
of Honolulu wo havo for some time
past noticed a want which Is dally
becoming greater, and that Is,, of in
creased facilities for discharging ships
with dispatch," says Tho Polynesian.
"New wharves nro greatly needed,
and those too of grenter capacity than
thoso thnt now oxlst. Bhlps now havo
to -watt for one another, or discharge
In boats and scows nt great disad
vantage. And not only should wharves
be built of greater breadth and ca
pacity, but they should also be run
"You Bay tho olopement was sort of
forced upon you?
"Yes; after sho came down the
ropo ladder her father pullod it up,"
Pa I greatly disapprove of that
young Smlthson, nnd ono particular
reason Is his lack or Industry In his
Daughtor HIb calling why he calls
seven PVPningH in tho week!
Into deeper water. Nono of those now
In use will admit a ship of eight hun
dred tons, loaded, without grounding
at low water; while tho depth of wa
ter but n few feet further Into tho
harbor Is ample for tho largest.
"From tho greatly Increased com
merce of Honolulu tho necessity for
moro nnd bettor whnrves, is too ap
parent to need much argument; and
we believe that Blmply calling atten
tion to tho subject will Bot the ma
chinery to work ns Boon as possible.
And so large a proportion of tho rov
enuo of the government is derived
from commerce It is surely no more
than Just to provide nil reasonable
facilities for Its accommodation.
"Should tho present ratio of In-
creaso continue for a year or two
more, tho entire wntcr front of our
small harbor will bo required for
commerce nlonc; nnd no alienation of
this property to other purposes Bhoutd
ho permitted. The old Fort should be
removed, and tho rubbish of which It
Is constructed employed in filling out
to tho channel. 'This would greatly
Increase tho water front for whnrves,
and afford accommodation for largo
ships, or for tho steamers wo hope
to sec before many months, resorting
to this port ob a resting place nnd
depot In their voyage across the great
Pacific. Some of these Btcamcrs nro
from two to threw hundred feet In
length, and will requlro long wharf
accommodations, nnd now Is tho time
to think of providing them.
"Tho Asia, tho new steamer of the
Cunard line, recently Inunchcd nt
Greenock, is thus described in the
'Tho Asia is 2G5 feet in length,
.17 In breadth, depth of hold 27
feet and measures 2226 tons, n. m.
being 400 tons larger than those
last built for.her owners. She is
17 feet longer and 4 wider. In
her construction every applica
tion of skill and sclenco has been
combined that could contribute
to her strength and speed. Sho Is
the property of tho British and
North American Steam and Nav
igation Company, and Is to bo
commanded by Capt. Judklns, bo
well known nnd popular In tho
trade. Sho is to proceed to Glas
gow in a few days to receive her
engines nt Mr. Nnplcr's estab
lishment; and we have no doubt,
that when finished, sho will sus
tain nnd Increase tho illustrious
and world-wide churacter already
bo well earned by hci eminent
builders and engineers, and sup
port against all comers, tho famo
of tho enterprising company by
whom sho ,1s owned. Her model
Is much admired by competent
Judges, and .sho is expected fully
to sustain tho reputation which
tho vessels of tho Cunard lino
havo achieved for the rapidity
and punctuality of their voyages
across the Atlantic. Tho Asia
will bo in New York In tho courso
of a few weeks.'
"Tho belief that Bticli steamers ns
tho above will bo employed between
tho American coast and tho Bast, is
no visionary dream. Tho enterprise
and Indomitable energy that Is now
cutting through tho continent, and
laying the Panama railroad track will
accomplish It Let us bo ready for
them; and have the requlslto accom
modations prepared ere they arrive"
Wo amllo when we rend of tho Asia,
265 feet In length, referred to as a
large steamer, thinking of course of
the tremendous strides In steamship
construction that wcro never dream
ed of sixty years ago.
At that time Honolulu was prepar
ing for tho traffic that bid fair to bo
increased by reason of the construc
tion of the Panama railroad.
Today wo should be preparing for
the traffic of the Panama canal
through which ships will pass from
ocean to ocean In five years at the
very latest, and possibly three years'
Wo know that tho monster steam
ships of the Atlantic will soon be ply
ing tho Pacific alld In tho natural
courso of events stopping at this port.
Are wo any nearer meeting tho de
mands of today than tho peoplo of
1850 were to meeting what they had
before them? Yet wo havo the ex
perience of tho past nnd moro cer
tainty as to the future on which to
base our activities.

lulu today to muko a hotter record?
