If no other way offers for doing It,
Honolulu could null afford to take up
a subscription for the construction of
tho I'uutna road Just as an expression
of appreciation for what tho Federal
Covcrumeiit Is doing tonnrds guar
anteeing tho value of etorythlng' that

All of which did much ,lo clarify

Supervisors on their part must feel
gratified at the Interest taken in pub
lic nflalrs and their readiness to ac
cept suggestion uud practical assist
mice will proo their good faith.
It cannot lie denied (hut tho officers
of the municipality of Honolulu lmo
a cry large task on their hands. Tho
city is growing, and therefore the de
mands nro pressing. As was pointed
out by Mr. Ulbb tho demand for labor
is iu excess of tho supply nnd conse
quently the return given for a wage
Is not so good ns when competition
for work Is keen.
The whole situation as regnrds tho
construction of city streets hns been
icudutlonlzod by tho automobile.
This means that a new sjstem must
be devised for the construction of tho
loads nnd nlso for pa) lug for the now
work. Street Improvements must bo
carried through at this tlmo as u
money paving measure on account of
Iho rapid advance In property values.
The town must be kept clean with an
equipment It hns outgrown. And on
toil nf .this the peoplo object to pay
ing mine taxes than they havo ever
paid In the past.
Honolulu must udJtiM Itself to
growing conditions. It is llko u grow
ing boy whose clothes do not fit him.
Tho best sign of tho limes is that
business men rcpiesentlng business
organisations arc taking n personal
lutciest with nil Idea of helping rath
er than Just complaining.
I,et the spirit or cooperation und
plain speaking continue, let tho busi
ness men get around to meetings of
the Supervisors and occasionally out
on the roads with the Supervisors or
tho city engineer, nnd there cannot
fnll to bo great changes for tho bet
ter In the whole municipal situation.
Tho main trouble Is that everyone
Is bo busy that two-thirds of tho peo
ple don't know what the other third
is doing, nnd havo tlmo for only a
kirk Instead or holding out n helping
Keep up tho good work. We'll havo
a community spirit that will bo at
once u Bourco of prldo nnd n mighty
Iricslstable power for progress.
