pnper Kdltorlul Comment.
Assessed value of Hawaii property was increased, approximately,
$ 30,000,000 by the 1912 Territorial assessment. The increase in taxable
values in the next three years will be still greater in proportion, because
ACTUAL property values will treble.
Over two million dollars worth of building is
in course of construction in Honolulu to
day, The Canal will soon be in -actual use and its
completion means an increase in Pacific
All the great gains in population shown by the
last census were in the West and
Hawa'i is a part of the Great West.
Gain in Pacific Coast population is
bound to show a future gain in Hawaii
Among tourists who visit us now, are many
future Hawaii residents, They see Ha
waii's great future, even though you do
After 1915 everyone who counts, will know
Hawaii as a Territory of the United
States and .not as the Sandwich-Islands,
for Hawaii will have a $150,000 exhibit
at the Great Pan-Pacific Exposition in
San Francisco. Hawaii from that time
on will be visited by more American
tourists than any other part' of the world
And they'll come from Europe, too,
Tourists are coming already in greater num
bers than ever before, H, P, Wood says
the 1912 summer travel here will be the
greatest we ever had,
Increased travel means a greater Honolulu,
and a greater Honolulu means a great
increase in Hawaii property values.
