' The man who has daily Inu
concentrated attention, energetic volition and self-denial in
unnecessary tilings, will stand like a tower when everything
rocks around him, and when h is fellow mortals are winnowed
like chaff in the blast. William James.
GREAT WORK FORJONOLULU CITIZENS.
While the morning paper i s devoting practically all of its
space to an effort to stir up f actional strife, and it is neces
sary for the B u 1 1 e t i n to set the people straight with a
fair statement of the plain facts.th ere should be no, general
diversion of the public from the facts' that Honolulu' has' big
problems with which it must deal and a great work to carry
on during the immediate months and years.
This city is in the midst of a world movement. Events will
not stop to listen to much political haggling in this particu
lar part of the globe.
If the people of Honolulu spend all their time talking pet
ty personal affairs and making faces at one another in or
der to -secure a little personal or political advantage, they
will simply be bowled over by the march of events. That's
If the people have not time for public affairs, if they are
not aggressively interested in the greatest of Honolulu's
problems of today, its improved sanitation, they will be
walked on and walked over first by some epidemic, and
then by some national authority stepping in to protect the
commerce of the Pacific, uphold the goodname of the na
tion and incidentally save a few lives and protect some
property in the city of Honolulu and the Territory of Ha
waii. '-''' ' u c
Honolulu people to keep pace with what is going on around
them must rise to a broader outlook than they have hitherto
known at any time in their lives.
TO BE NEXT DOOR TO THE GREATEST NAVAL BASE OF
THE COUNTRY AND PROBABLY THE WORLD, IS A GRAND
THING. By "virtue of being in such a neighborhood one of
two things will happen to Honolulu.
IT WILL EITHER WAKE UP OR BE SWALLOWED UP.
, Events won't stop to apologize. Honolulu will not be al
lowed to delay the progress of the nation.
Certain definite things are before this city to do. The
first is to prepare itself to receive the world's traffic that
will pass through the Panama canal. Many of us think of
the tourists this will bring. But the tourists "don't cut any
ice" in the national responsibility of this city, the world
scope of its activities.- But we may be sure that when Ho
nolulu does rjse to its proper, standard ,the tourists will come
- in droves.
To be ready for the Panama canal ,as well as the opening
of Pearl Harbor, means that Honolulu and its surroundings
must be as nearly sanitation
self, mis is not tne oase today, it must be the case in
the early tomorrow, because the trade of the world is com
ing this way, the troops of the United States will be quar
tered here, and Honolulu has GOT to be kept in shape.
This is a great work in more Ways than one; It is worth
t while. It calls for big men free from petty jealousies and
petty deceits. It calls for co mmunity action and commu-
nlty loyalty. It demands offic

drawn over again. This will be at
the expense of a further dely to say
nothing of the expense of new plans.
Because two or three departments
were LEFT OUT In the memoranda
given the architects that drew up the
plans, departments or bureaus, mind
you, that are already In the building.
Do you call that efficiency?
Let no one be led astray by the
statement that the so-called poli
ticians defeated the direct primary
law, the record of which for several
years passed Is admittedly a disgrace
; to tho Republican party.
The prlmury bill has been defeated
on each and every occasion by repre
sentatives of so-called wealth and In
telligence. The record on this point
Is absolutely clear.
Consequently It is rather foolish to
nsk business men why they will con
tluuo to put up money to carry elec
tions for machine politicians.
If the business men who contribute
largely to campaign funds were to in
sist or even quietly urge that the
primary law be passed, there Is no
doubt whutever of what would hap
pen. This Is mentioned merely by way
of enabling the people to deal with
the situation according to the facts.

LET US HAVE PEACEI
It Is cheering to the optlmlstto seo
with what an enthusiastic spirit the
world has taken up the peace idea.
There Is stilt faith In man, and
despite the croakers, the hope of unl
vernal peace abides in tho hearts of
Let us have peacel
A few weeks ago Ilaron D'Kstour
nelles de Constant gave an address
upon American and Kuropean co
operation of world peace, after pay
ing a warm tribute to the memory of
Edward Everett Hale, whose pupllt
"America's future is securo because
Its Inheritance is noble. I like to
think that the leaders of the revolt!
tlon in France and of the revolution
in America were actuated by the same
principles of freedom and progress,
and that America and France will al
ways work heartily together for the
peace and order of the world. I re
joice that President Toft, who is ne
gotiating an unlimited treaty with
Qreat Britain, is negotiating a treaty
of the same kind with France; and I
congratulate the American people
that, through the splendid effort of
their president; they are at this hour
leading' the world In the most Import
ant movement of the age! It Is pe
culiarly the duty of Churchss and of
religious men to support these pol
icies of peace. Tho Churches of
France have certainly not done theirs.
I rejoice that among the Free
Churches of America and England we
see so much that is better. What
churches need Is the spirit of that
great patriot and peace-maker, Ed
ward Everett Hale, whose constant ef
fort had been to keep the present gen
eration In America alive to their high
(A.t about this time came the 'peace
platform of the Lake Mohdnk' Con
ference. After reference to the pro
posed treaty of Mr. Tuft, the follow
ing recommendations were made:
"We call upon, our people for .such
earnest co-operation and expression
of public opinion as shall ensure the
execution of, these treaties In such
form that they shall not fall short in
any degree of the public declaration;
of President Tatt and of the just ex
pectations that these declarations
have aroused on both sides of the
Atlantic; and we urge the offer of
similar .treaties to all nations 'ready
to conclude with us.
"The Congress of the United States
has by unanimous vote authorized
the president to create a commission
Wo consider the pressing problem of
the limitation of the burdensome arm
aments of the world. We record our
gratitude and satisfaction at this res
olution of Congress in behalf of In
dependent American action.
"We welcome and endorse the pro
posal recently submitted to Congress
for a Joint agreement by the nations
of North and South America that In
case of war between any of thorn, no
taking of territory from one by an
other shall be permitted as a result"
Mr. Home, an active promoter of
the free religious movement In Lon
don, and a member of Parliament,
has welcomed President Taft's pro
posed treaty. At a mass meeting re
cently, held In London, he suld;
"First and foremost In the peace
movement of the world stands Presi
dent Taft, whose courageous advanc
ing of the Idea brought it down from
heaven to earth, materialized It; and
gave It practical shape. We are at
one of those crises that 'try and test
our Christianity. Some great cause,
Clod's new Messiah, Is verily sifting
Iout the hearts of men, and the next
few months will show whether the
church uvea, or whether she has only
a name that she llveth and Is dead.
Labor men see In the proposal for
peace and good will a promise of ma
terializing their Utopia. All parties
in the House of Commons and out of
It, are one in backing the measure.
The churches speak with one voice,
the leaders of our municipal life are
unanimous in their support and
eager in hope. There Is not a shadow
of doubt about the backing President
Taft, Sir Edward Gray and M. Bal
four may be assured that they are
not moving without the people. The
vote of the people Is for peace. Tho
soldier has ruled us too long."
A tremendous hubbub is being
raised over the fact that a score
or so of laborers were paid for
work they did not do on Clean
up Day. It is quite the proper
thing to see that the municipal
pay-roll should not be grafted
upon In this way, but what does
the small amount being paid the
laborers amount to in comparison
to the salary that haB been paid

' The sailing of the steamer aenerul
Hubbard from San Francisco for the
llawullun Islands has awakened con
siderable curiosity ulong the water
front. The question has been asked more
than once If the vestel Is en route to
Hawaii on a mission similar to that of.
the Pucltlc Coast, steamship Senator,
which endeuvored to get away with u
large number of plantation laborers.
At the naval station It Is said that
the tug Navajo at one time bore the
namu-tif General Hubbard.
According to a cable received this
morning through the Honolulu branch
of the Merchants' Exchange, the Gen
eral Hubbard, a steamer of some thir
teen hundred tons, sailed from San
Francisco, her destination being given
as Pearl Harbor.
Inquiry by n-Iliilletln representa
tive at the ortlco of the Hawaiian'
Dredging Company elicited the stute-j
ment that the ofllce has no knowledge
of any steamer huvlng been chartered
to come down to the naval station.
t'rom what can bo learned here, tho
eneral Hubbard referred to In the'
recent cable Is a steamer engaged In
the coasting trade and a vessel of suf
ficient tonnage to easily make the trip
across the twenty-one hundred miles
