You must have the Bu 1 1 e t i n to get the news. The
Bulletin gave the people the first and exclusive news on
the charges against the Governor by Delegate Kuhio. Get
ting the news and getting it first is one of the many good
reasons for the universal comment that "the Bulletin is
the best newspaper in town." Popular and influential with
the people, it is naturally a superior medium for progressive
business men who advertise.
"SEEING HONOLULU IS TO BELIEVE.
If you had any lingering doubt of the educational business
value of the B u 1 1 c t i n's scheme for "seeing Honolulu"
with the health officers as guide and counsel, We would Urge
that you read the remarks published in this issue of the
members of the Chamber of Commerce who spent two hours
yesterday afternoon getting acquainted with some facts re
garding conditions in the city.
"Seeing is believing" for the busy man of mature years
as well as the small boy, and now that the movement toward
acquaintance with home surroundings has begun, it should
not be considered complete till at least every member of the
business organizations has "seen Honolulu."
The practical result of one of these trips is that every
right-minded man becomes an aid to the health authorities.
He can see what should be done for the protection of the
homes of the city, and when the workers of the health de
partment speak to the public on subjects of sanitation, he
knows what they are talking about and seconds the motion.
He also knows that all the improvements, pressing though
they may be, cannot be made at once. But the man who has
been on a "seeing HonoluIu"trip is in a position to help in
telligently when a timely opportunity offers.
President Spalding of the Chamber of Commerce sums up
the duty of the citizen when he says that the conditions one
encounters on one of these trips should inspire every man to
become an active member of tne forces at work to place
capable, and reliable men in office.
There's great work to be done in Honolulu and a "seeing
Honolulu" trip is a splendid reminder. Take one. The guides
and the transportation are at your disposal.

one to believe that the failure of the

on the world's nffulr than Is repre

sugars of Hawaii arc marketed. Few

era and plague times, said Inst even
ing; "I founei tho situation n thousand
