SATURDAY. - MAY 20, 1911
Japan and the Panama Canal.
FROM the earliest days the sea has drawn the nations into com
mercial rivalry. The ships of Tyre strove with those of northern
latitudes for the supremacy of maritime trade. The more distant
the goal, the more persistently the mariners of old sought to prove their
prowess. Oceans enabled small countries to share in traffic opportuni
ties; the little country with its fine coast facilities frequently outdid its
large but less favored neighbor. Scandinavia is an example of how
smaller nations send their merchantmen into the most distant ports,
and the flags of Norway and Denmark are still among the most con
spicuous in the world's harbors.
In modern times the opening of the Suez canal was the epochal mari
time event It not only brought England and the Mediterranean into
direct touch with the Indian ocean but it pointed the way later for
Japan, the rising maritime nation of the east, to send ships into Euro
pean waters. Since the rise of Japan as a maritime power has been
steady and noticeable, it is not strange that the mercantile marine of
Nippon is now anticipating the completion of the Panama canal by
making ready to share in the profits that will accrue to the users of that
waterway. Japan, however, apparently expects to gain in more than
one direction when the canal becomes a fact. Indications are that the
island nation not only expects the canal to facilitate trade between her
own possessions and the world, but that she will be in the market as a
common carrier through an entire new fleet of merchant vessels.
Part of the scheme calls for the construction of twenty ships of about
6000 tons each. Japanese shipping circles evidently forsee the time
when water communication between the Atlantic and the Pacific will
bring an enormous volume of business. The greater the business
development on the American continent, the bigger chance for success
in the domain of navigation. The effect of improved internal water
ways should be felt also in increased ocean business. The ships that
seek the trade first will undoubtedly be elected first. If the United
States desires to benefit to the fullest extent by the canal it is a reason
able supposition that American ships should enter for traffic between
the east and west coasts. North' America and the Latin-American
countries have such extensive coast lines that the Western Hemisphere
alone seems likely 'to call for more ships than will be immediately
Jingoism can find no encouragement in what Japan has in view. A
great maritime nation cannot afford war'. And if anything were need
ed to show the pacific intentions of the Japanese, the move to establish
new steamship lines might be sufficient. When men-of-war become
obsolete, merchantmen apparently will offer the chief competition for
A Bit of Truth.
IT is my observation that the only people who ever get any holiday
are the "public servants." The Governor "has" to go to Washing
ton. The Secretary "has" to go to his beach resort. Marston
Campbell "has" to go to the coast. And so on!
Damme they get enough money for their easy jobs! Why this habit
of paid public servants making a bluff about being overworked? How
can they be overworked?
It is the same way, though, generally, throughout the run of jobs
The boss" is the man who gets the holiday while his underlings do
the work. An editor who doesn't know from day to day who is work
ing on his paper, tells the owner that he is overstrained moulding pub
lic opinion, while the man who has worked for the rag a dozen years
can take a holiday and be fired. The manager of a business firm who
has nothing to do but watch the card index system takes a holiday,
while his bookkeeper for twenty years can slave or be bounced.
It is absolute, premedetated rot!
There are a lot of dubs in Honolulu who pretend that they can't do
a year's work unless they get a couple of months' holiday, and it is
high time that this form of petty graft was stopped. A man in public
office, head of the public works, land commissioner, or what not,
does't work any harder than the average stevedore. If his work is
strain on his brain, then God pity the lack of brain. Will Sabin, in
Paradise of the Pacific.
We note with satisfaction that the unsightly fences are gradually
coming down. Two more disappeared the past week: This in itself
shows that Wailuku is progressing.
lf Love Were Always Laughter."
' (By Annie Johnston Crim.)
IF love were always laughter
And grief were always tears,
With nothing to come after
To mark the waiting years,
I'd pray a life of love to you,
Sent down from heaven above to you,
And never grief come near to you
To spread its shadow, dear, to you
If love were always laughter
And grief were always tears.
But grief brings often laughter,
' And love, ah, love brings tears!
And both leave ever after
Their blessings on the years;
So I, dear heart, would sue for you
A mingling of the tvo for you,
That grief may lend its calm to you,
And love may send its balm to you
For grief brings often laughter
And love brings often tears.

It looks as though the storm that
has been brewing in the vicinity of
the camp of the Honolulu Amuse
ment Co., is about ready to burst
and impressario Scully may fail in
his attempt to control the destiny
of the company. It seems that
when the consolidation of interests
in motion picture theaters was first
broached Scully held back until he
had assurance that he would be in
control of the whole works. Of
course it required a heavy interest
to obtain this and he had little.
He gave his note for something over
two thousand dollars and some cash
and received in return thirty eight
hundred shares in the corporation.
Then the lien on the Savoy Had to
be attended to because it was agreed
that each interest had to be free of
all incumbrance. His shares were
deposited with a trust company as
security for money loaned and for
the payment of the lien of seven
thousand dollars. For months, or
to be exact ever since the corpora
tion papers were filed, there have
been dissensions in the camp. First
one partner was sent to the coast
only to be discharged on his arrival
and then another. The discharged
partner was drawing two hundred a
month and he didn't want to slide
off so he demurred. A cablegram
replaced him in his position and
after he had enjoyed the fog and
the great white way of the Bay City
for a month he returned to 'again
become active' in the management
of the shows. Here he was balked
by Scully who holds the title. Then
there began a series of investigations
and with each discovery came chari
table deductions, some of the part
ners decided that they had better
have a Receiver appointed. This
was staved off until Joe Cohen re
turned from the coast the other day.
Then the Waterhouse Trust Com
pany, by its treasurer, felt that it
should realize on the security it
held for the note and lien. Morgan
has the note and it is advertised
that the security is to be sold Friday
at noon. If it is not and the note
is not paid the postscript to this
may tell what happened. In so far
as things go and have gone since
the combination first drew breath
the public would be better satisfied
to go back to the old regime. I
understand that the affairs are bet
ing focussed so that the change that
is to take place in the management
and directorate on June first may
now be seen through the large end
of the glass. Mr. Scully, who was
popular as the owner of a saloon
and at one time recognized as one
of the Two Jacks, has not proven a
prodigious success as a theatrical
manager and he will retire at the
end of the month to be succeeded, I
think, by William Daring Adams
Will knows something about the
business having been in front of a
theater for as many years as he was
behind the "foota." He knows to
the very hour when the ghost
should walk and has an envelope
full of workable excuses for the
times when that mythical, but use.

There is to be a clean-up in
Honolulu as soon as Governor
George gets through vacating on
Kauai. Harking back to the days
when Carter was governor of the
islands, and incidentally everything
else, seems strange that he would
allow a desire to visit the folks on
another island to interfere with the
work which he has been asked to
direct. There was a time when he
would go without his luncheon in
order to investigate the methods of
a jailor in a back country district.
But that was when Teddy's eye was
on him, and his on Teddy. Mr.
Carter was so thorough in his work
as the chief executive that the peo
ple have great hopes that when he
gets his force cleaning up such a
change will be wrought that one
may eat a meal in the Winston
Block, or any other of the odorifor
ous sections of the town and keep it
The agitation that is ' disturb
ing Honolulu just now is that
which may determine the loca
tion of a federal building. How
some persons change. It seems
only yesterday that there was a
mass meeting, and blood near spill
ed, before the very men who now
oppose the Bite were so anxious that
the Mahuka site be selected. They
would accept no compromise. There
were many reasons why the Irwin
site would not suit the purpose and
to my mind those same reasons are
alive today. If it is to be surely a
civic center it occurs to me that it
will be necessary to dispense with
the opera house and get that ground
under a portion of the building. It
seems to me that there was no
thought of a change until Henry E.
Cooper broached the subject in one
of the federal officials in Washing
ton and as Cooper was at that time
attorney for Irwin it is reasonable
to suppose that the change was
brought about in an attorney and
client way. There are those in
Honolulu who believe some men
have been won over to the change
by the fee route.
