SPRING SALE OF STAPLE STOCK

' May is The
At This Store.
NEW GOODS MUST BE SOLD TO MAKE ROOM FOR OTHER NEW GOODS
Usual business has failed to lessen our stock sufficient to make room for 'the 1912 stock, of which we bought heavily early in the year. A big stock of staple
lines must stand the cut of the profit-slasher, as there is no way to increase store space. Rather than pay storage rental for the goods that are coming, the
Honolulu buying public is to be given an opportunity to secure dry goods at prices that make even wholesalers gasp.

Mr. Du Pont. Mr, Fresldont
Hawaiian Islands are 1200 miles, at
their closest point of tontact. from
the l'ncllic Coast; they pro nearly half
ns far nwny from us as Is the const
of Ireland; and If wo Rot Into n wnr nt

Islands, wo would h.ie to di

tinental United Stntes and thus weak

fleet for continental defense In order
to defend the Hawaiian Islands nt all,
except In no far us they wero defend
ed by fnrtlllentlnns nnd by land troops.
They havo Increased the necessity for
soldiers, and they hnve Increased tho
necessity for n lleet. Ilefore that wo

Mr. IlrlgKs. I should llkn to ask
