Hi: HAS FAITH IX HONOLUM'
" The battleship Hawaii!
" The idea is not an especially new ouc.
been previously before the public.
; Hut we 'do not mall that the project has ever been
presented to the men who uame the hit bv siu li a
fair pleader a I'rintKH Abigail.
; Of course we wish to have the next battleship of
the new navv named the "Hawaii." Of eourne we
hare a right to thin diHtinrtion. This in one of the
matter on which the icop!eof thin inland and all
the other islands ran absolutely nimninious.
If there is anything to Ik done that will promote
a Kpeedy sicreptam-e or te propositi, tne ii:en ana
the women of Hawaii should reiond immediately.
TVe are wire they will resjsind.
Hecretary Daniels reply is one of the regulation
non-comniital tyje. Hut the fart remains that con
stant rejfetition, constant reminders of what Ha
waii wants and what Hawaii should be allowed to
have, will eventually land the prize.
The battleship ''Hawaii bound to wiu. for the
strongest argument in its favor is hv should not
a battleship be named Hawaii?''
, People who opisse it are on the defensive. The
initiative, the drive and the forceful pleaders are all
on our side, ;
lV have the battleship "Hawaii."
v Do, yon ever doubt that this town is bigger, grow
ing bigger every day ? 7 Let some of the recent kawa-
ainaa think not very far back when the change of
commandants at the naval station was a town event.
It did not stop business but it was the feature of
the day. Now it causes hardly a ripple. Not be
cause Honolulu thinks any less of the commandant
of the TCaval Station, but rather on account of the
people having ho many other things to do. The man
vlio tries to keep this town in its old fashioned state
und complains because it does not stay, is asleep at
'the Witch.'-- U ,. .. " - . ; .
It isn't ; any ofhe Rtar-Hulletin's pigeon, but
revert nelens a fact that every time National Com
mit teejiian John Wilspn declares that Governor
Tinkham is not a Democrat it strengthens the gov
ernor's position with tbe'authorities in Washington
It demonstrates that at least some of the politicians
with'which the governor hai to' deal are f the' pale
grey ass variety. And iione are so quick to see, it
cs the trained politicians of Hie mainland who en
deavor to carry themselves so as to gain support and
keep Jn line with the administration. r
':''rm ' t ' -
Curious isn't it that recent history should repeat
the record of officials going into office on practically
a iactTprograui becoming the leading factor in set
ting a new mark for preparations against war. It
Was during 0 rover Cleveland's administration that
the great white squadron was started, andflrst steps
taken toward getting out of the wooden' fishing boat
class. But Secretary Whitney was a far." cry from
Secretary Daniels.- Whitney initiated the program.
Daniels has done it because the president requires it
us a part of the administration policy.
Hir Douglas Haig, commander in chief of the
British armies in France, in an interview with the
Associated Press t-orrespondent said, ''England will
r:ot achieve her full strength on land, however, until
::ext Bummer. This remark at the end of a state
ment showing that the Allies now have the whip
Land, does not lend much strength to the argument
of the man who : expects the war to end this fall un
less he assumes that the Allies can win without
Ilritain putting her full force in the field.
In. all kinds of. weather and at all times of the
year, Hawaii holds the palm for climate that just
i aits discriminating humanitv.
This is a true story the story of a Honolulan
who has faith in his city.'
A rumor reached the Star-Hulletin that a frtain
busim'ssiiiau who has both downtown business prop-
jerty and outside residence projerty. as well as a
home on the liencli. was planning to sell his boarh
' residency to a hotel syndicate. He. was askM re
gard ing the rumor.
"Not going to sell and my projierty is not fur sale
at all."' he said .laconically, and t hen -proceeded :
"I : bomzht such-and-such a corner .t downtown)
for certain reasons and have held on to it. I'm go
ing to hold on to it. 1 lsught such-and-such a tract
in few miles from the business centers for certain
reason and I'm going to hold on to that. I bought
my place at the beach for certain reasons and I'm
going to hold on to that. None of them is for sale.
It's no use to talk price."
He continued :
"I often think that Honolnlnns haven't einuijrh
faith in the city's futnre. I have. That's why I'm
holding on in spite of offers made to tempt me to
sell at a tine price at a big profit. I lwlieve Hono
lulu is going to grow a whole lot more. I believe
in investing my money here."
This iolicyf he says, has made him prosperous. He
intends to stick to it.
Some people think Hawaii should stop advertising
becauso it is getting so much free loosting. Their
thinker is on the wrong tack. This is the time when
the organized advertising directed from Hawaii
should take every K)ssible advantage of the opjor
t unity to drive home facts when the public is in a
receptive mood.' The field is in erfect condition.
Now go ahead and make the most of it with definite,
controlled and intelligent presentation f climatic
and scenic truths. .

DIRECTORY OUTl SUMMER RESORT
Road Maps, Directory and
Motor Hints Make It Best
Publication of Kind
Tho ilnnnl-.ilii fsf ar.Riillt in has hist
'issued the Hawaiian Islands official
automobile and motorcycle directory.
Th.s lKok covers the islands of Oahu.
Hawaii. Maui and Kauai. In addition
to publishing a complete list of regis
tered automobiles and motorcycles,
showins name of owner, machine and
coirect number, the directory contains
much other valuable information.
One of the oig features of the di
rectory is the road maps of the four
islands. Roads are outlined and stars
are placed where the motorist may
rurcnase gasoline. These maps are
certain to be a big help to all automo
bile owners of Hawaii. The maps
weie all compiled, drawn and en
graved by the Honolulu Star-Bulletin
Many new points that have been in
corporated into the directory this year
are tha "Helpful Hints to Autoists."
These include startin? the car, driving
hints, rpecial pointers, washing the
car, lubrication rules, locating trouble,
removing carbjn from cylinders, care
of tire?, spark plugs, and getting long
er mileage. Altogether there are sev
en pages of information on automo-;

Would it do Honolulu any harm to hold a "clean

hurt the back yards to have their face washed or
the front vards to be treated to a hair cut and sliave.
