Old Nineteen Thirteen, while he hit Hawaii mauy a wallop was
yet more considerate -of na than of almost any other part of the
world, and little Nineteen Fourteen, who has taken up the business
of the world this morning, promises to be even be.tterrthan hta dad
ao far as Hawaii is concerned. It would be an exaggeration td say
that the New Year dawns with. the usual Hawaiian oertainty of
treat prosperity, but at least it .finds this Territory sitting tight
confident and ready to meet whatever may come, satisfied that
nothing worse than the experiences of the past twelve months can
be crammed into an equal b?riod of time. We have had free sugai
legislation, drought, democracy in power, adverse world's markets
a deprivation of influence in Republican national councils and a cut
ting off of Kuhio ' return ticket to Washington, but we have es
caped pestilence, war, famine, flood, fire, industrial disputes and
congressional visit. Un the whole we have done not badljy com
tared to the balance of the world." '
. Generally speaking the year just closed has been one of good
business in Hawaii. Looking ahead, 'the prospects for good btisi
nesa appear even brighter, and the soup kitchen, the bread line am
the street or plantation not is as far away : as ever. ' I he tonna
business is growing week by week. The indications are for. bette.
u gar prices in 1914 than in 1913, while the Hawaiian crop will b
bigger one. The continued developments of the naval and mil.
tary works on Oahu, in themselves, 'ensure a .pood business yeai
: while the growth of Honolulu will continue on the same good line
as last year. The plans already laid guarantee this. , . .
Despite the pessimist Hawaii had a good year in 1913" the peoph
of the Islands having fared better than almost, liny other portion p:
the United States. Despite the pessimists Hawaii will have an evei
better year in 1914. . v ' '
Remember, the worst of onr troubles are those that never happen

ORIENTAL MARKETS FOR HAWAIIAN GOODS. '
The Greater Chamber of Commerce should send a Hawaiian -rep
resentative to the Orient as a member of the 'delegation of Wea
Coast business men who pass through Honolulu on the Mongolii
next March. Hawaii will find, a big market for everything producer
in these islands in Japan, Manchuria, Northern China and Westerr
Siberia. , A very large share of the Hawaiian coffee crop now goe;
to the Philippines. : The market for pineapples has only just beer
touched. It has even been suggested that there is going to be r
big market for Hawaiian washed yellow sugars in the lands. to thf
west of us. Hawaii is two thousand miles nearer the new market
than any. other American post. .Eastern manufacturers are making
. great plana for getting their share of oriental trade after the open

- PROTECTION FOR AMERICAN BREAD WINNERS.':
There are twenty-six million wage earners, , men and women, in
the United States. They are the bread winners of town and citv and
on them first will fall 'the effects of the business depression caused
by reductions in the tariff. It is 'more difficult for the workers it
American factories to maintain the high standard of living to which
they are accustomed when the home market, which in the longmn
is the best market, ia thrown open- to the free competition of the
whole world. .:,? ''"; , ' ... .'. '' : '; ,) :
The principle of protection is to keep the, home market for the
American laborer and farmer. , This ia what the .Republican party
has stood for for sixty years. - The results of the withdrawal , of
protection, are immediate and tangible. ' The Republican party has
no apology to offer for the principles of protection, but there are
twenty-six million bread winners who will be demanding something
more than an apology from the theorists who say that the: foreign
market is the best. ', ;' . . ' ;'.; t-o- .:-,.-:r. .

" GOOD ROADS. ! ' lli '- i
It is said that between twenty and thirty tourists who have come
to Honolulu this winter intending to remain for from one to three
months have gone back to the. Coast in a very disgruntled frame of
mind after being bumped aronnd for a week or. two over Honolu
lu's widely advertised "beautiful automobile drives." 'If there in
any one thing that this country must have it Is good roads, "and if
there is any one thing that we cannot afford to do it is to advertise
advantages that visitora find when they get here we only have in
our mind's eye or. on paper. , . ; f ! . n j .';
Hawaii 'a climate is the best in the world, winter and aummer.
The gorgeoua acenery of the islands is unsurpassed..' We have an
inexhaustabje gold mine in them) two assets aloiie if properly ad
vertised and exploited. . No one can ever take them away 'from .us.
But the reputation of not being able" to deliver the goods a some
thing that the community cannot, afford to have. - Hawaii needs good
roads. : : ' '
Mr. .Carlsmith of Hilo is still opposing'the carrying on'of the Ha
waii probe in the way deemed best by the legislature. He flooded
Honolulu with wireless protests against the bil creating the probe
commission when the suiii.e was before the legitUuture, Now he op
poses an appropriation to complete the work, the justification of
which has been shown to the tune of sixty thousand stolen dollars
paid back to the county treasury.' Mr. Carlsmith; 'a opposition in the
first place excited surprise his opposition now is more surprising

GOVERNOR PINKIIAM'S POLICIES j r
Governor Finkham's first extended statement as'to the pollcyVof
n .uiiunmii oiivn ,B nivrn io mo peopie 01 me. t erruorjr in miq issue
of The,Advertwer. It ia an amplification of the outline giten to the
representative of this paper in Sun Francisco and sent to. Honolulu
by wifeless,- but includes as well a number of new noints.. As" a vro-
gram it is promising; in its strong announcement of non partisanship
it if encouraging as. an indication that the way is being opened at
Washington for a further presentation of the cause of the Hawaiian
sugar grower, the announcement may be regarded as the most en
couraging information. that has come-to Hawaii sine the passing
of the Underwood Rill. j, , , ' J . V,-i-. v; .
The one important exception in the announcement concerns immi
gration. - Upon this point the Governor is silent. ? :
In connection with the future of sugar in Hawaii the. words of the
Governor are: "No normally established sugar plantation can at
present suffer from legislation The Hawaiian situation will,
In due time, be better presented, understood" and considered. The
result cannot now be predicted." . -.-,
We take this to mean that the Executive believes that the one
cent rat4o become effective after March 1 will afford an -adequate
aegree 01 protection to ine sugar industry and tliat, before ..May 1
116, When the free sugar" provision of the law becomes effective.
there will be Vin eirort made by friends of the nathmal administra
. c : . . . .. . i . i m ii . . ... . .
inm---iiiiiiiuiic itmiiiiie cnarge 01 lonoying lnsiaiousiy to retain a
5uiiicieui ucpree.oi protection to prevent tne coup de grace to the
main industry of this Territory. The Governor sjjys that the resnll
annot be predicted, but the fact that he draws attention to the pos-
, ability, cominort he does direct from a discussion of Hawaiian
affairs with the President, brings the first real sun - ray from the
tariff-clouded , sky of democracy. . ' . ; '' , . .
't Perhaps the most radical section of the Governor's announcement
Is that dealing with the public lands question and the intimation thai
the time has arrived when it ia not in the best interests of the whol
people to have any great amount of arable land tied up and held idle
lor-speculative puposes: Vlhe Territory has not an arable acre
.vhich public-' Welfare can permit to lie idle," say Jhe message, and
'your Governor will bear this in mind.'! ,. :; ,i , . ; . '
,: The Governor goes on record as being prepared not only to back
the forces working for the promotion of the tourist trade of the Isl
nds but to lead in further development along proniDtion lines. He
will safeguard the public health and take such Bteps as wiH prevent
inaue puouc aiarm concerning tne neaitn situation, which has here
;ofore crippled the work of the promotionists. , lie will assist thsi
ho are endeavoring to create a More Beautiful Honolulu and will
help bring Hawaii into her place as the mainport of the great clima
tic route across the Pacific for the -vessels using' the Panama Canal.
.There ia a hint of warning in what Governor Pinkham says con
erning commission government - His words imply that the political
status of this Territory depends upon "sound political and economic
government" and that Hawaii, in its territorial and county govern
ments cannot attord to run counter to accepted ' American ideals.
There is also the suggestion that the: relation of Hawaii to national
defense must be , considered in any , discussion of th possibility of
the establishment ojt a federal commission government,' and that in
this connection the question of the preservation of. the public health
and its bearing upon the health of the garrisons is a live one.
That there must be a United Hawaii and that in the union there
must. bd included the Americancitizens of all.races.and colors is,
the contention of the Governor, whose. attitude t)Wrfc "tlie Japa
nese is made plain in his reference to "those of alien; 'antecedents
but local birth" who Vwill become '. : almostJa dominant poli
tical factor.' These must be accepted for what, fh'frf art,- American
citizens, with rights equal. To them must be eterild.the' hand of
American-fellowship in order that they may bec.bm hloulcat4 with
I'loyaUy and a single devotion" to the United States.. L, . -'
In closing, Governor Pinkham aska-Jor a community support! In
no'line of his address is there a auggestion that BeJ slands' W!aVy
political faction or for any one.part of the community,: wid. jjq ,thns
.leiiominating himself as a Governor of all Hawaii he deserves the
support of all Hawaii. ; Ills address ia so devoid of political' bias that
it ia natural to suppose that those politically biased will be disap
pointed. It ia rather plain .to see, that the spoilsmen who have count
ed upon the change of administration in- Hawaii to!, throw open the
gates tof the land of easy pickings will fail to be satisfied with what
Governor Pinkham has evidently in view, and it is safe to predict
that -the Governor will,, at a very early date, become the target of
a faction of democracy made up of those who are QlamorinjjTf or jobs
without any of the ability to fill any of the responsible positions. ,,;
When this commences it, will' be, the .duty of the , "good citizens
and, friends of. the Territory of Hawaii,; upon whom the Governor
calls to give him the backing that any man must have who intends
to stand for -economy, for legitimate progress and for fair play to
everyone. J;-;; ' . , ; . - : . -:, .. ;v-.; ;: .;: " -

done nothing to "entitle hira to any praise from Hawaii. . lie has, on
the' other hand, gone out of his way to treat these Islands with a con
tempt that appears to have been .born in ignorance and kept alive in
egotUni. While IJawaii niay not reasonably hope to1 have national
policies shaped to fit our insular conditions, at least we have every
right to expect that our insular conditions will be considered in the
shaping of national policies. Thi is a part of the United States and

. ' i HAWAII'S INTERL3T IN PANAMA. ;
With-one feature, of the ''Miaugural address" of Governor link
ham, delivered at We formal reception in the Throne Koom yesterday
morning,' the community should find itself tn thorough accord, that
being thej stress laid by the. new Executive upon , the. importance of
preparing' in advance for the opening of the Panama. Can"': , "ov
ernor Pinkham is very clearly of the opinion tha Hawaii will reap
great advantages from the new, transpacific trade routes to lie open
ed within the next few months if Hawaii is in readiness to grasp the
opportunities to be presented. That one aim of the pew administra
tion is to prepare the Islands for what should comt is 'something in
which ilovernor Pinkham should have undivided ahd 'unlimited up
port. ';".,' ':;. ;' a , - . . ''' , -; . -i ; '"!"'
- The making of the port Teady for Panama Tjusihess is something,
in which everyone can help. .The calling of liners and freighters is
not wholly dependent upon deep channels,, 'harbor dues or port
charges. - These things are important, but they are by,n means ev
erything. "Honolulu,, for one thing, must be known as a port free
of epidemics of contagious and:quaranttnable di,''8''t',, an(' w't'1 8
population not only rejidy but eauer to back np the health author
ities in all precautionary steps. Honolulu must he known as a City
where ships' supplies may be purchased at fair prices, us a-city worth
visiting, with adequate public' utilities, offering advantages for
social entertainment to nt rangers and, In general, a place where it
is not only safe to.come but pleasant as well.'. And in the accom
plishments of these (things eveione may help: !
This is what Governor Pinkham has in mind, we suppose, when he
urges, the development of the natural beauty of Honolulu and the
augmenting of what Nature has done for lis by the things we shoulc
do for ourselves. A city ia not doing itself justice when it compels
the visitor to swallow mouthful of dust when taking an automobile
drive. ' It is not showing a pride in itself when its citizens limit theii
expenditures within: their property lines and refuse to supply side
walks forkpedestriatia. It is failing to rise to ita opportunities w;heri
its front gate-tjie waterfront is either a morass of mixed water
elay and street sweepings, er a vortex of choking and unhealthy dual
r louds. Bumpy roadbeds and unkempt gutters cannot be wholly for
gotten in the enjoyment f, balmy alra and prodi gal verdure.
; ' The selfishness of .individuals that prompt hostility to community
efforts for tho reclamation of swamps within' the city limits; thf
iarborance that fights advance; in sanitation the sections jealousies
that prompt hostilities to local improvements, 'anf the racial prej
udices that are played, upori hy unscrnpuloua self-seekers have ho
nart in the united action that' must be if Honolulu is to come Into
her own and if HawBii is to 'profit as it should from.the general ad
vance of Pacific Ocean ' trade.'- ' v-
; Hawaii should-be, even jf we have not heretofore given very great
evidence of knowing it, "the most interested spot in this readjust
ment of the world's commerce" to come from the opening of thi
Panama Canal, and the thinking part of thd community will he bad
of Governor Pinkham in awakening that interest.

; " ) THE COFFEE INDUSTRY TO THE FORE.
'.' There is work for' everyone to' do in Hawaii While awaiting im
provement in sugar conditions the best thing for all who are nof
actually engaged in the industry, ia-to try to produce at least some
wealth on their own account. Evijry dollar counts. Coffee was pro
fitable jn some measure, when it was selling at ten cents, and now
that the prices have-risen from forty. to sixty per 'cent the planters
are not aaying yery much about hard times. The Hawaiian produc
tion is increasing every year. -. The growth of the industry has been
slow. but sure, and it is predicted that in 1934 there will be man)
times as large a production as now. ' -'
The Olaa coffee boom commenced twenty years ago. The indua.
try Went through the promotion, stage, was officially declared to be
defunct and a failure,, but insisted on liviffgl Now,' at the beginning
of 1914, there is leaa coffee talk than there was in 1904 and hardly
one per cent as much as in 1894, but the Territory ships two-thirds
of a million dollars' worth of ooffeeer annum.
A, curioua feature of Hawaii's successful coffee industry is that
there are only a few coffee companiea, arid stocks in them cut no
figure in the Jocal exchange. -There have been no recorded sales of
coffee shares by Honolulu stockbrokers during 1913. Yet Hawaiian
coffee ventures have probably yielded more, aggregate return in cash
dividends during the last five yeara' than any ten oil well concern?
or gold mines into- which Hawaiian 'investors" have poured their
silver in ten years. ;, " " ; " ', :' '
; The' moral ig that fliere are good opportunities right here at home.
Coffee, pineapples, roselle, onions,, peanuts, tobacco, ginger, cotton
rubber, are all. plugging along, aaying little but doing much. Some
day the home people wholiaye dumped their dollars into Mexican
coffee and rubber plan'tationa, wild-cat copper, silver, gold, diamond
and hot-air mines and drill-holes, will wonder, why they didn't nose'
around a little in the home paatnrea flrh.
