urged at intervals ever since by a few with imagi

nolulu has lost the jbppnrtuiiity it had to be a lead
er in what is now almost a national .demand for
the establishment of i system of "free "Verts."
When the proposal waa originally made in Hono
lulu' by Assistant Secretary of State Loomis, all
that the average big business man in Honolulu
. could fasten on in the matter was the word "free,"
a tabued wordwhich brought up visions of free
Migar and territorial disaster. ' Hence the sugges

that anneared tA be before it. of

' ' Later,' from tiute to time, others again advanced
the "free-port" idea and urged that it be at least
seriously considered,. Again it was refused a hear

merce'and of the administration having ho time for
" Today, along both coast lines
there is an active demand for the establishment of
"free ports?' one or two on each coast. The hoary,
, imnn-caien argument mat sometning snouia not
be done because it is not "American" has been dis-.
carded, along with a number of other equally, fu
tile and piffling ideas and arguments. The secre
tary of commerce has" embodied in his latest report i
to congress a number of arguments in favor of the
"free port" , plan and urges legislatiori to make
such trading points possible. The establishment
of free ports at strategic points on our coast, . says
Secretary Red field, "would be a potent factor in
maintaining and extending our foreign trade' '

THE ADVERTISER'S SE3-WTEKLY
Q NOW, driven before icy winds, : heaping uf
higher, drift . piling up on drift
making the mountain passes more, than "evef diffi
cult of passage, intense cold and extreme discom
fort were added incentives to the Austro-German
force's to redouble their efforts to break through
the Italian cordons to the. Bassano Plaint where
it would be possible to establish winter quarters,
avoid the more severe rigors-to which they are
ana irom wnicn tney mignt, as occa
sion offered, push on toward their new objectives.
' Had the ' Austro-dermans succeeded in -break
Bassano through Brenta Pass and
along the Brenta River, U would have fut the Ital
ian Hue so that it must precipitate a general retro
grade movement. It is indicated that such re
treat would be a long one, the next line of defense
to be established along the" Adige River on the
West and the lower Brenta River or more likely
the Bacchigbone River, on the East, below. Venice.
This "would give to the Teutons control of large
territory and mean the surrender of such import
ant cities as Venice, Padua and Vicenra and other
and towns. '
: The drive directly against Venice on the lower
Piave front was a failure front the. outset, ' the
Austro-Gcrmans being driven back T)ver the flood
ed lands with tremendous losses. , ,
-With such incentives 'and with great force of
numbers the Huns succeeded in gaining positions
on Monte Asajone which,. if retained, gave them
control of the entrance to the San Lorenzo valley.
To secure these vantage points thousands upon
thousands of lives had been given and many other
thousands had fallen wounded and maimed. But
the victory was short lived and the advantage was
not long retained for on Friday the well directed
counters of the Italian forces drove the Teutons
oflt and back' along a three mile front to a depth
of two thirds of a mile. 1A11 the Austro-Germans
had fought for during the earlier days of the week,
all that had been gained by, the immense human
sacrifices their efforts had entailed, was lost to
them. They were back where they had started
at the close of last week. '
Desperate .fighting has marked the week irj the
Italian war theater. Against great odds the Ital
ians and their Allies resisted ej ery inch of the way
against the desperate advance which their enemies

taiy as tney rcsistea tney were siowiy iorcca oacK

former positions. "-Cy .
' On this front losses have been by n6 meant' Cori
fined to the enemy, the Italians have suffered se
verely in their great resistance and subsequent
aggressive but the, enemy loss has been excessive.
t From the western front tjie news of the week
has been meager. Reports have told only of ar
tillery engagements and of raids that were termed
of minor importance. Indications are not want
ing, however, that' this apparent ' lull has " been
merely a period of preparation and it will not be
unexpected if the world interest in the great war
center in this theater, as it has re
in the Italian border, in the very
Admiralty reports last week telling of the sub
marine losses up to last Sunday showed the Hun
campaign to have been a little less successful than
in previous week. As the drives on the land
seemed to lose in vigor, so was there also indica
tion of a loss of vigor undersea.
Bolsheviki leaders appear to have discovered
something of the undependability of the 'Germans.
It is reported that they have been surprised to
have their cherished peace terms that were to
prove so satisfactory to the "proletariat" of the
nationsof the world, flatly refused by the Central
Powers. Thus, it is said, with no instructions to
go further, the Bolsheviki commissioners are tak
ing their goods back home. This is as was ex
pected and the forecast now is that Germany wijl
present counter peace proposals using the Bolshe
viki to give them to the world. What purports to
be an outline of such terms was received in diplo
matic circles in Washington and have been pub
In Russia the situation becomes more and more
perplexing to the outside world. The Ukrainians
now enter calculations as an important factor but
with so many factions in the field it is impossible
to more than venture guesses at the outcome.
Canada has returned the government, thereby
giiiig its support to conscription which will now
go forward. On the other hand conscription has
been beaten by a great majority of the voters in
Australia. Labor conditions in the antipodes are
said to be taking on a serious completion and to
have had much to do with the reversal of the
government, for the defeat of its conscription
policy was nothing less than a reverse.
In this country investigations of war progress
are going forward both as to" the army and the
