MISSION OF OUR VISITORS.
A more juat statement of tho needs and deserts of Hnwnli, or a mora correct
presentation of the significance of the Congressional party's visit, than that
reproduced in this issue from tho Washington Star could not have been written
by tho most astute publicist or theinost ardent promotionlst in Honolulu,
Also, though unintentionally no dpubt, the arrival of such nn expression from
a leading journal of the national capital could not have been better timed. It
says very aptly and nently tho very things thnt our people who mny bo privl
agricultural purposes, tho unused, upcountry reservation, of about 14,000 acres."
It must be remembered thnt the statesmen we cordially welcome today
arc not a grievance fishing commission, like the notorious Mitchell-Burton
outfit, to sit in Inquisitorial judgment on public men and policies, with special
deferenco paid to the evidence of adventurers, malcontents nnd Borcheads. If
anybody is detected in "knocking" to tho visitors, let him bo promptly
knocked down with a club.
HAWAII'S DIVERSIFIED INDUSTRIES.
When the visiting statesmen travel over these islnnds they will especially
note, not only tho prosperous look of the sugar plantations, but the vnst smiling
fertile vacancies, where nothing gTows but bushes, weeds and scrub cattle.
And they will probably wonder why the untitled areas aro not divided up
into farms especially when they learn how aiany kinds of salable crops, besides
sugar, nre producible here.
When our guests ask questions about these things they will hear all sorts
of pleas against diversified farming. An influential landed class, fearing thnt,
if farmers come, there will be competition for labor nnd land leases, will say
that nothing can be profitably raised in Hawaii but sugar. That is. a proved
error as to bananas, coffee, pineapples, tobacco, sisal and dniry products; nnd
in the opinion of the experts of the United States Experiment Station, nil
forms of tropical merchandise enn be raised in theso islands to ndvnntnge.
We havo tho soil, climate and market and wo havo rcasonahlo land laws. The
spirit nf colonization is growing. Only in ono particular, now recalled, do we
need the friendly assistance of Congress. And that is in providing tariff
jrotection for coffee.
Hawaii is able to produce the fragrant berry in enormous quantities.
Everything in air, sunshine, rainfall, soil and shade, unites hero to mako a
coffee of nearly the highest class. What wo now export is chiefly used in
blending, to bring up tho quality of poor coffee. But our berry has to compete
with that poor coffco tho pauper products of Brazil and Central America
and instead of having hundreds of lino plantations hero wo have only, two
thnt arc at all notable. With thnt economic safeguard extended to coffee
which Congress has thrown about so many other Amcrlcnn products, notably
those of the 'orth Tcmperato Zone, the Hawaiian group nnd Porto Itico could
eventually control the home market to the advantage, not only of themselves,
but of tho American coffee consumer.

1 " HAWAII AS A FORTRESS.
For the economical protection of coast cities and of American commerce
in this ocean, Hawaii should bo iiuule tho Malta of tho Pacific.
It is not contended that tho coast cities could not protect themselves from
naval attack; but it is clear that to do so against n Hawaii in hostile, hands,
would cost a sum enormously greater than that required to mako theso islands
impregnable. Economy demands that American possession hero be uiailo abso
lutely secure. That condition having been reached, nothing extraordinary in
tho way of defences or garrisons, would be required in California, Oregon nnd
So long ns Hawaii remains unfortified or fortified inadequately, Japan will
feel that war with the United States is within the sphere of practical politics.
Possessing this baso and protected hero by floating mines, mortars, siego guns
such ns sko could easily transport and mount Japan could muko herself n
dangerous , enemy. Without it she could not do much on this sido of the ocean
nnd probably would not venture hero except with her eominerco destroyers.
It should bo remembered that, in tho war with Itussin, tho Japanese navy
refused to give battle far from its base, though they might have taken
unawares in Madagascar waters or in the straits of Malacca.
A beginning has been made townrd fortifying Honolulu and Pearl Harbor;
but what the Advortlser wants tu prpsg upon the notice of its visitors is the
fact that the entire1 program, when) completed, will not prevent tho landing of
hostile forces, clHcTently convoyed, mi tho other side of tho 181111111. Batteries
of heavy guns are nearly as requisite there ns here; and there ought to bo
provision for n largo garrison. Malta is tho example; we should emulate that.
Konn will bo n revelation to tho Congressional party beeuom it is the
section of the Territory uenrest approaching the Amcrlcnn idea of small farms.
They will have an opportunity to noto tho effect of tho system
of the Territory, for, at the side of small patches of luxuiiuiit cotleo trees,
in blossom and in berry, the guests will sou thousands of acres of
land allotted by the owners and lessees to lie idle rather than lease it
for a reasonable sum to actual settlers or tu sell tu those whu would deulop
tho country on American lines. Kona has the laud for the purpose and the
ltousoelt Idea of settling the country in that way could bo carried out wuro
tho uw tiers of tho land ugrceablo to tho change. This section of the Territory
is rich lu opportunities, needing only tho helping hand of those who control
the soil, Pineapples will bo seen growing in Koiin second in extent only to
Wiihliiwu and tho only obstacle la the way uf success of the enterprise is the
cost nf tniimportatlon. Tho only ulmtudu lu the way of having that district
thoroughly Americanized is the control of tho luud.

Tho ConerrMlonnl vlsltnm are beginning In realise thnt one mutt go in A
country In know what It U liter. Tber Is lint man In the llgitinn who lim
not rend many books on Hawaii, nnd tftlbml la many people ennrrrning its

who wn prcpitred lu find In this remote rfroiip nf Islands, the moat distant of
nny In the world from other land, nnd the most tainted part of America,
such n strung and steadfast spirit of the truest Americnnlsm. It is nn lustnnco
of thr blood running more wnrmlv In (he extremities than about tbn heart.
Willi many nationalities concentrated In n nnrrow nrea, t litre have been no
race feuds, no rnco wnrs, no such violent nnd Insane conflicts between capital
and labor, ns nro now convulsing Ban Francisco and 'New York. Tho Asiatics
here, who nre necessary to tbe well-being of the nro greatly in
the majority, yet thoy voluntarily yield to the judgment and guidance of the
white man whoso knowledge nml oxperlenco they respect. Csi the other hand
the white man ban dealt fairly with Ills Oriental brother nnd with the Ha
Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, Americans, Scotch and English nil nttend tho
public schools nnd there tins never been any suggestion of segregation. The
children of tho territorial schools nro not only schoolmates, they are friends.
What that tuny mean in promoting universal pence n tho future, who can tell f
Orientals and natives have had justice and protection in the courts. They

Though our plans for the reception ami entertainment of tho visitors aro jan8 positions of tnist land responsibility in all the departments
concentrated on giving them a welcome and an entertainment that they will
never forget personally, the fact must not be lost sight of that tho Congressmen
aro here on a high political mission even if wholly voluntary in
lesponse to a friendly, invitation from the Legislature of Hawaii, It Ib proportionately
as much of a practical errand they enmo upon ns was the Taft
expedition through here to tho Philippines year beforo loot. 'The Washington
Star, as will be seen, recognizes this fact.
Thcro ought to be competent spokesmen enough among all who will meet
and help to entertain tho visitors, to give the members of tho national legislature
clear and cogent argument upon "the needs nnd deserts of Hawaii,"
informally and casually, nlong tho lines of the Wellington Star's statement
nnd of the suggestions presented yesterday by the Advertiser, namely:
'' I. The need of a navnl station nt Pearl Harbor,
" II. The value to the army of a camp of acclimation nt Kahauiki.

It Js gratifying to note thnt the suggestion made some time ago by this
paper ns to enlisting the school children in tho (work of cleaning up tho city,
is to be carried into dffect. It is practical training jn civic responsibility.
Tho conveniences furnished them by the thought and labor of their elders
are too often accepted by tho iyounger generation ns their simple right. It
of that upon which 'the comfort and convenience of the wholo community
Patriotic sentiment is not to' be despised, but there Is a suspicion thnt
training in this direction has been expressed too profusely in words, and
tho importance of deeds not sufficiently emphasized. Tho duty of tho coming
.'itizen doos not lie wholly in reverencing the flag as a mere abstract symbol,
it is, in reality, the onward and visiblo sign of lawfully instituted authority,
nn nuthority that should bo reverenced by young and old, by great and small.
To waken the interest of the child In public order, beauty, cleanliness, to
ask his aid in bringing about and maintaining such conditions, is to begin the
training of tho futuro citizen and tho future legislator, in the right and only
way. Taught in childhood to consider the public weal, the impulse, once
awakened, will grow with his growth nnd strengthen with his strength. To
respect the rights nnd property of his school-fellows, of his neighbors, of his
community, is to lead him, by easy stages, to a recognition of national rights
nnd international prerogatives. Tho mere repetition of patriotic nphorisms
will effect very little lasting good. Let the sentiment be coupled with requirements
that call into play tho best'rqualities of citizenship, the basis of which
ib regard for and the caie of public property. ,
HOW TO GET STEAMSHIPS.
The statement of Mr. Giffard, a few days ago, that thero did not seem to
be business enough in sight to keep the Sierra running, struck the friends of
Hawaii most unpleasantly. At the same time it ought to Inspire them to
greater efforts to increase the agricultural output so that, in the nenr future,
no such complaint could justly 1 'be made. Wo have, on Oahu alone, cargo
possibilities enough to keep the' whole Oceanic fleet busy transporting pineapples,
.coffee, sisal, bananas, small fruits and other salable merchandise; and
in the demands of a population engaged in creating these values, a guarantee
of return enrgoes. It is evident that sugar is fully served by tho old means
of transportation and that no grcrit expansion of this industry is to be looked
for, hence, if cargoes for new steamers aro to be haiL they must come of nn
culnrged population of farmers junlcss, perchance, n temporary demand fdr
cement, granite and other fortification material, comes to pass.
It very often happens that when 11 city wants somo special advantngo in
transportation, it buoyantly ignores tho needful preliminaries. A cnucus of
promoters, asking for steamships or railroads and cheerfully promising help,
means very little unless back of it is a resolute guarantee of enough business
to make tho proposition pay. Thoro is more latent power in the land policy
of this Territory to get now comibctions with the Const than is in tho
Chamber of Commerco and tho Merchants' Association combined nnd we say
it with entire respect to thoso useful bodies. Ono farm put into the hnnds of
n man who will produce fifty bales of sisal, or five hundred bunches of bannnns,
or ten tons of arrowroot, or 1000 enses of pineapples, would bring new steamships
appreciably nearer; and nny general development nf susceptible lands
throughout tho Territory could nbt fail to mako .Hawaii tho objective of
several steamer lines. We should not have to beg for moro transportation
then; it would como of its own accord. '
WIRELESS MGR, CROSS

Editor Advertiser: We read with
some Interest your article In tho issue
of May 2 entitled "Held Up the Wireless,"
and, considering It was written
from a wireless point of view only, on
information furnished entirely by Mr.
Cross, It Is perhaps ub near the truth
as could be expected.
The statement that the Hllo and Hawaii
Telephone and Telegraph Co. are
holding up the Wireless Company's
business Is entirely untrue, as can be
proven by Mr. Cross' agent on this
end of tho lino, Thut we did refuse to
act as tlie'r agents ufter May 1 without
1111 Increase In compensation i
coriett, and wu think our demand for
1111 Increase was Justifiable. Up to May
1, 1001, we wcro receiving J75 per

It Is a fact that the wireless system
has become a necessity to our business
Interests, and should this or any
other company do anything .to tie that
business up they would work a great
hardship on, the public and would be
soverely condemned. This Mr. Cross
Is wel) aware of and Is using the
knowledge for his benefit and to the
publ'0'8 detriment. Otherwise he
would get his instruments In proper
repair and handle his business by telegraph,
as the public have a right to
expoet. The fact Is, tho public have no
Idea of the enormous profits made by
Mr, Cross und put up with nny kind
of service simply because ho won't pay
