I PEARL HARBOR OPENING.
Culling the channel through the reef that has for so manv
years closed Pearl Harbor to navicjation, is a task so quiet
ly Jam! withal so speedily done, that half the people of Ho
nolulu have come to think of the great work in that section
oi'lhc island as a part of the day's routine.
- .It takes the snapping of the ribbon, the passing of the
first warship, the salute of welcome and a little "hurrah
boys" to stir popular enthusiasm and arouse people to a
realization that the passing of the armored cruiser Califor
nia into the harbor today signals a glorious victory in a
struggle that has lasted for more than fifty years.
'The first Americans who came to this part of the world
picked Pearl Harbor for the part in history it is now begin
ning to play. Statesmen and citizen have fought hard and
r in 'face of the most discouraging odds of public indifference,
touring about what we arc now so fortunate to celebrate.
iWliat effect this new harbor will have on the future events
ofjthe world no one can exactly forecast. But we do know
that this harbor will be a pivotal
biuuiua ui u iu vvuiiua niaiui y will iuvuivu.
'Pearl Harbor will be the assembling place for great fleets
of 'warships. Let us hope that never during the present cen
tury will these fleets be called upon to go forth to battle, but
whether they do or not, may they at all times be the barrier
of protection for an ever-increasing American influence and
an ever-expanding American commerce carried in American
Pearl Harbor means much to Ihc little town of Honolulu
aifd the little 'Territory of Hawaii, but our interest is infin
itesimal compared to what Penrl Harbor means to our na-
,liqn and to the whole world.

The holidays will soon be passed, the Governorship will
soon be settled and the new year will be upon us with the

events. Honolulu needs the help and advice of successful
business men in promoting efficiency in municipal managc

They have looked on, perhaps given the hasty suggestions
of the busy man, and no doubt criticised liberally. The re

more nearly approach the efficiency in government of which
it is so much in need.
Come into the open of public life, gentlemen. Don't sit
back and try to "name" your representative who can be
"depended upon" to do as he is told. Don't sidestep the re
sponsibility that presents itself to you.
Dr. Scuddcr has learned that the Citizqns' Sanitation
Committee, acting with the Federal and Territorial health
authorities, is doing a great work and has made less mis
takes than he thought. This is what everyone finds when
they take the trouble to get down to the facts. The con
tinued criticism is neither just nor in any sense patriotic. It
hurts the town and delays its progress. Dr. Scuddcr will no
doubt have the good judgment to now join with the workers
and help Honolulu along in its splendid campaign for a clean
city. This is what should be done by all citizens who believe
in Honolulu and are willing to cooperate in making it the
model town of the Pacifjp.
If Governor Frcar finds that he can make water power
now running to waste, useful in promoting the progress of
the town of Hilo, he should by all means grant the license
asked by the electric railway iicoplc, taking care of course
that the interests of the people arc fully safeguarded. Don't
give something for nothing just because it is the Government.
On the other hand don't delay development by standing in
the way of legitimate private enterprise
