W.T. Irwin on Departing for Mainland Shows How Honolulu,
By Launching Improvements and Catering td Entertainment
of Visitors, Could Prove Paradise for Tourists
: A large amusement garden on the
beach at Walklki, a partial reclama
tion of the swamps now crossed by
the Rapid Transit system at the Mc
Cully tract to create an amusement
park for your annual fiesta and a spa
cious lagoon capable of staging an
elaborate aquatic carnival, . municipal
golf links either here or in.Kapiolani
park's spacious areas, hibiscus lined
avenues leading to a legion of attrac
tions that Oahu has to offer the tour
ist a greater development of the bun
galow life on the islands, these are a
few of a host of pertinent suggestions,
along the line of constructive criticism
offered by William T. Irwin, a leader
In financial circles in the middle west
ern states, who is. heavily Interested
in banks and similar institutions in
Cincinnati and other cities in Ohio.
Mr. Irwin, who has Just departed to
the mainland after spending six weeks
in the islands, is now thoroughly con
finned in his belief that Hawaii pos
sesses a charm which in his extensive
rambles over the globe is not'eclipsed
That capital will be available to car
ry out a number of projects along
the amusement line, following the vis
it of Mr. Irwin and his party, was the
prediction voiced today by those who
had assisted In the entertainment of
the Ohio multi-millionaire. -
"Tour carnival Is one of the big as
sets, therefore make it unique," sug
gested Mr. Irwin. "Honolulu is so
greatly favored climatically that an
event of the sort should easily surpass
similar attempts at- Venice, New Or
leansPasadena, Portland or St Paul.
February Js a logical time for holding
the celebration, with Its pagentry and
spectacular features. Mr. Irwin be
lieves as athletic carnival .should fol
low, with June 11th, Kamehameha
Day, as a central setting. The swim
ming meet might best be held at that
time. " . ;
The premises of the Outrigger dub
at the beach should be made available
for tourists in the opinion of. Mr. Ir
win. He-advocated an organization
such as the Hawaiian promotion com
mittee taking moving pictures of all
scenic attractions, the film being pass
ed upon as authentic; could be releas
ed to such exhibitors who might apply
for it There is need for a refresh
ment pavilion at Walkiki beach, more
particularly at the Outrigger club if
same is opened to the tourists, where
light lunches and soft drinks could be
served at moderate cost
Honolulu should send a delegation
of Hawailans. Japanese, Chinese, Kor
eans. and Filipinos to the mainland.
that it might be demonstrated to the
residents of the Eastern and middle
states Just what Hawaii had accom-
plised in its efforts toward an inter
mingling of the races, believed Mr. Ir
win. The United States, he said, needs
to be better educated in what is being
done over here.
"Tie unbeaten paths offer splendid
opportunities." he told his friends
here. "I was charmed with the Orien
tal section of Honolulu. I did miss
hearing Hawaiian airs. That is, at
least, one feature that II overlooked.
Hawaiian dishes are also scarce, few
tobe found on the better class menus.
There should be a splendid business
onenine for some one to establish a
strictly Hawaiian open air. cafe.
"A speedway for pacing and running
races, motorcycle and automobile
events would prove a big boon to
those seeking amusement of this sort
By all means cater to the golfing en
thusiasts. It is now a difficult matter
for the devotee of this sport to gain
access to the grounds now available
near Honolulu. "There should be mu
nicipal golf links. The city appears to
be well supplied with playgrounds for
Mr. Irwin was enthusiastic over the
possibilities for a Hawaiian settle
ment to be located preferably in the
amusement park near the beach. He
predicted it to be a financial success
from the start Splendid opportunity
offers for the sale of native wares at
such a place. Mr. Irwin contended
that Hawaii does not make the most
of the possibilities of its bungalow
life. He was shown types, which he
declared were unrivaled by " those
found in California. Architecture typi
cal of Hawaii in the home and the bus
iness block should not be overlooked.
KeeD Hawaii typically Hawaiian, he
The present acquarium is about one-
fifth the size it should be in the opin
ion of Irwin. The fame of the islands
has been spread broadcast over the
world through its brilliant pictorial
fishes. He praised the service main
tained by the street railway and show
ered compliments on the-courtesy of
the conductors and motormen.
Fun and stirring patriotism each
had its place at the Bijou theater last
night where the Monte Carter Co.,
playing to a packed house uproarious
with laughter, yielded the stage to
the Liberty loan and Judge J.
Banks, who announced that the em
ployes of the Consolidated Amusement
Co. and the Monie caner piayera
themselves had subscribed more than
$4000 to the loan. Deafening applause
greeted this announcement Judge
Banks, in his address which followed
was frequently interrupted to wait for
the house to grow quiet again. This
was particularly so when he said:
"The flag in whose honor you have
Just risen to your feet represents
freedom, right and liberty- It repre
sents America. It has never been
dragged in the dust of defeat It never
will be, and this time our boys wil
plant it on the high towers of Berlin.
Judge Banks closed his address with
an appeal for everybody to help fight
the war by buying Liberty bonds, and
the girls of the chorus pasted through
the aisles and collected the appUca
tlons that had been filled out .
Time and again the patriotism and
appreciation of the audience man!
tested itself in generous applause for
the speaker who by his glowing de
scription of America's pledge to up-w
hold at all times the principles o
personal liberty and political free
dom moved his hearers to a
deep-seated feeling of their responsl
bilities to aid the men in the trenches,
The Bijou management desires to
express Its gratitude for the efforts o
Judge Banks in making .Liberty nigh
a success.
