"That's' how much Interest thcro Is
In Honolulu and how much tonndenco
San Franciscans have In Its future,"
he snys. "They think that tho opening
of tho canal Is going to make this clt
grow faster than any city on tho Pa
cific, and penplo who nro watching the
situation believe It, too.
"Every class of Honolulu real cs
tato Is In demand. Of rourrc there Is
nlwnjs n big demand for beach prop
erty, In fact, more of a demand than
a supply, but all kinds of residence
property Is wanted. I believe S,in
Francisco people would Inrest In resi
dence property hero quicker than In
their own city.

Snn Francisco. It means a tremend
ous Increase In Investment ami u re
