Mr. Shelby Swett of Washington thlnlu repealing
cf th free-tolla law will "burden the people ot this '
country with un Justifiable f re lght ; rates in the in
terest of the Pacific railways. , This seems so true
ca the surface, that it is; rather laughable ta find
Low absurd it is" beneath the skin almost as' absurd
cs Champ Clark's champings about theTailways' alii-
cnce wlth Great Britain and President Wilson. Of
c o urse the canal tolls of $1.25 a ton 'will make : no
I.Terence whatever; in railway ; rates, " Water 'rates :
average about three-quarters of a cent' per, tra-mil$. H
At this rale the average on cross-continent freight '
ly rail cannot be 'cut to 'less 'than something like V;'
1 22.50 per ton. By the canal the ships could carry
t!.e traffic for a third of that sum and make money.
. It ii perfectly obvious that the toll of 11.25 on the
i hJps tonnage cannot : enable the railways to com-"l
lete At alL As a matter-of . if act, tbe Railways wilL-
r.ot try to compete by cutting rates. All the freight
hlch Is t adapted to . water transportation will go r
ty water if there are free wharves and independent ,
thips to accommodate It. The tolls discussion is a
red herring across the railway trail, and tends to.:,
tlorken counsel . .When the railways 'make the at-4
tempt to beat the canal traffic, if they ever do, rest
assured they will not do it in any such Insane man-?
r.cr as by the cutting of railway rates down to within
51.25 of the competitive water rate. They will have
c trick worth two of that . ' v

Everyone knows the printer's business.
J?o well is this estaldished that the "average

piece of work, immediately responds.
"Oh, that s too high, and forthwith goes to an
other printer and asks him to do the same work

"Dear Sir: We wish to compliment you on your
ability to determine the correct price of a piece of
printing. . Your ability must have been gained by
-a great many years of experience in the printing
business as we have been engaged in this work for
over 20 years and freely admit that we cannot cor
rectly judge the price of any job until executed in
our plant Oar cost system gives us the accurate
cost of every Job that goes through our office, and
we depend absolutely on it
The printers of Los Angeles meet once a month
for educational purposes, and I am sure they would
be pleased to extend an invitation to you to address
them t one of our regular meetings, as I am. con
fident you could enlighten us alt " 5
"We showed you our cost sheet and every cus
tomer is gladly shown the cost sheet on any of his
.work. Jf you can prore that it cost us 1 cent fess,.
we will gladly receipt our Invoice, as by such proof
we would be able to learn something that would be
worth much more to us than the amount of . the bill
rendered. - -: . .
"You say our cost sheet means nothing whatever
. to, you, and that you consider it poor argument' on
our part to try to impress you with the fact Qlat we
. even dropped our profit on the Job. We would hate
to think that you guess at the selling price of your
; merchandise, without knowjng what it cost you, and
as for showing our customers he cost of goods, we
- note that you, as well as other merchants, always
mark cost with characters, so that your customers
can have no Idea of the profits you make.
: "It; would be interesting to the writer to know
just what the $60.00. suit his wife recently purchased
' from your store cost you. In this connection we
might say that we; have spent $5.00 with you for
every dollar that you have paid us for printing. We
now hesitate to make- further purchases from your
' store, for if your selling price is figured according to
? the way you estimated on our printing, we. know
you must be losing money on each article sold, and
" we would dislike to be a party to such a transaction.
"Referrlng-fto your cost calculation on the job in
-question- you overlooked one Important operation,
that. of folding. Perhaps In your printing experience
folding costs nothing. This would be a good point

we; continue to do printing,- we will invoice ajecord

been proven correct not only here, but all over the
V United States. Some printers in Los Angeles may
perhaps do your printing at any price you wish to

WILL ADVERTISE THE
1914 KAMEHAMEHA DAY
With a view to giving prominence
to the celebration of Kamehameha
Day, which will be observed June 11,
the Promotion Committee is sending
to railway, , steamship "and tourist
agencies throughout the United States
circular letters In which are con
tained the details of the proposed pa
geant The committee is sending this
letter at the request of the joint com
mittee of the officers of the various
Hawaiian societies, recently chosen
to take charge of the affair.
The letter follows:
"During the days of the monarchy
the 11th of June was the great an
nual holiday throughout Hawaii Nei.
For a number of years past, however,
the general observance of the day
has practically ceased. The leading
Hawaiian societies have again taken
ud the matter and are preparing to
celebrate June 11th this year (1914)
in a noteworthy manner.
"Prior to the holiday the statue of
Kamehameha In front of the judiciary
building will be regilded and draped
to be unveiled the mornfng of .lune
11th. when it will be surrounded by
100 stalwart Hawaiians in the garb
cf old time warriors. A large and in
teresting procession of Hawaiian so
cieties and school children accompan
ied by a strong guard of Pa-u riders
will march to the statue where Hawai
itn songs including Aloha Oe, Hawaii
Pcnoi and others will be sung by
many hundreds of voices. Following
the unveiling the crowds will gather
in the palace grounds to listen to or
ations on Kamehameha the Great and
his times. Thousands of Hawaiians
are expected to be present. It will, in
tact, be the greatest gathering of old
Hawaiians seen in many years. In
the afternoon there will be a splendid
ly arranged pageant at the seashore
in Kapiolani. park representing the
ceding of the Island of Kauai by King
Kamaualii to Kamehameha. Old court
Jurist Returns from Island Do
main Reporting Land of
Beauty and of Ptenty
Enthusiastic over the beauties and
resources of his island dominion,
Judge Henry E. Cooper arrived home
yesterday from Palmyra Islands after
an absence of about five weeks. With
him came also the two other members
of bis party, his son, Francis D.
Cooper, and D. Howard Hitchcock,
the artist All are deeply tanned from
exposure to sun and weather, and all
are In the best of health and spirits.
The voyage in Judge Cooper's
schooner, the Luka, was a most en
joyable one, both going and coming.
"We had beautiful weather and fair
winds all the way , said the Judge
this morning. ."And the return trip
was the same until a few days ago,
when we wera becalmed off Kauai.
We finally got wind and made Wa
mea, where we left the schooner and
returned to Honolulu by steamer. The
Luka will be brought up to Honolulu
tonight or tomorrow by Capt Elmer
E. Piltz, navigating cfilcer of the ex
pedition." It had been the intention of Judge
Cooper to leave a colony of-some 20
Tahitians on Palmyra to develop the
resources of the little group, hut thl3
plan was changed, partly - by reason
that It was found that tho schooner
would be short-handed for the return
without them. However, it Is atUl
his intention to carry out the coloni
zation scheme. On Just what scale
this will be done will depend upon
the results of laboratory . - tests of
samples of phosphate- Jrock "U'fclch
were brought back for analysis.,
'The islands seem more beautiful
and interesting than every," declared
Judge Cocper, In telling ; about his
trip, "and this time we had more op
portunity to make a better survey and
inventory of the resources than be
fore. We spent ,12 days on the isl
ands, and we brought back with us
several barrels of fish . and a cargo of
cocoanuts, many of which are sprout
ed and read for planting." .
D. Howard Hitchcock is most ven
thusiastic In his description of the
beauties of the little Island group. He
made a large number of sketches of
still life and feels that he has been
able in large measure - to reproduce
the unusual coloring of the land and
ssa. He was particularly Interested
In what he calls the "luminous col
ors" to be found there. ; -
The Palmyra group, which Judge
Cooper purchased a few years ago, is
995 miles to southward from Hono
lulu. It- is said, to be rich in copra,
and it is believed also that- the phos
phate deposits will prove valuable.
