THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JULY 3, 1915.
5 v . i OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES I A IlHwnil'n population has grown to nrrordlne ot roconl rstiniHlcp: Imt If you 'iiih people by what they hnve iHiompllslicd, nnd not rounl them, Hawaii out-measurrs boiup of the ohtar Ktatr3. Kohula Midget. Secretary H. P, Wood, of the Pro motion Committer, smiles last; the last charge waj only a slzzer. Kohula Midget. The Promotion Committee has chap ped Wood, while he himself has been pawing It. The Service. Hill Sunday threatens to come to Honolulu next year. He can't come this year, glory he! But he hopes to f-llng his slang hero In 1916. The Ser vice. Hllo Is showing considerable spunk In establishing a promotion committee of her own at Honolulu; but after all that, seems to be about the only way the outside Islands can hope for their just share of the tourist business. The experiment will be watchod with In terest. Garden Island. What, was this work "the dele pate" did at Washington for which he received a fee of $750 from the Hono lulu brewery? The people of Hawaii have a right to know. Garden Island. Dark Outlook. That the outlook for a larger Ha waiian tourist crop this year than ever before seems to be simply fading iway to nothingness, is the opinion of those who Keep m loucii with such ques tions. The expected thousands of tourists do not seem to be materializ ing and the European war, which was fully expected to cause many trippers who usually visit Europe, to come to Hawaii Is now, through further com plications, having just the opposite ef fect. The war is so close to home row days and the situation Is so ticklish that people will not travel at least ofr the mainland. They cannot be blamed for this and, when the pros pect of being marooned In the Islands for months on account of not being able to secure steamer transportation back to the Coast Is also taken into consideration, the wonder is that ven as many tourists as have rome, have ventured to take the journey at all. It Is hard luck for Hawaii, as It was figured out. that a fair percentage of the people who visited the Panama Exposition 'Jould conti'.ue their excur sion to these islands. Hawaii Herald. H. W. Mist, of Davles & Company, Honolulu, is n visitor on Waul this week. FOR SALE. Large corner lot at Kokomo, with 7-room house, oven and ample stable1 fruit and shade trees. A bargain. See H. II. DEVINS, Attorney at Law, Wailuku, Maui. T. It. On the Other Islands Mormons May Buy Steamers. The building of a big sugar refinery at Por tland. Ore., Rnd the inauguration of a steamship line between Portland and Honolulu may be one of the early results of the visit to Hawaii last month of Joseph F. Smith, president of the Mormon church, and Ilishop Charles W. Nibley. If the refinery is built the Mormon syndicate plans the building or pur chase of a number ot steamers to carry raw sugar from Hawaii to Port land, and the extension of sugar enne culture by the Mormons In this terri tory. The investment of many mil lions of dollars is contemplated, if the project proves feasible. Berser Resigns, Kalanl Appointed. After 43 years of continuous service as director of the Hawaiian Hand, Capt. Henri Ilerger on latt Saturday tendered his formal resignation to Mayor Lane. Capt. Berger was pen sioned by the last Legislature. Peter Kalanl has been appointed to suc ceed him. O Potash From Sea Weed. "j. M. Westgate, director of the Ha waii Experiment Station, believes that It is feasible to extract the potash salts contained In all Kra weert nnH thus be independent of this important ten inzer ingredient, neretorore almost exclusively imnorted from Cernmnv The plan is now being worked out on Ihe Pacific Coast, and if the quantity of weed is sufllcient here, it should be possitue to obtain the local supply right here at home. Chinese Steamship Line Soon. At b.-ast five modern pastenger nnd freight steamers are soon to be put in operation on the Pacific by a Chinese syndicate, according to news received in Honolulu this week. The Chinese government has subsidized the new line heavily, it is understood. Fung Sul, a representative of the company, passed through Honolulu on Tuesday enroute to New York, where he hopes to secure at least two vessels suitable for the service at once. The new line will sail under the Chinese flag and will make Honolulu a port of call. o Freight Reduction Helps Hawaii. A voluntary cut of 20 per cent In freight rates on sugar between Cali fornia points and a zone with an east early boundary marked by Milwaukee, Racine, eastern Illinois, Iowa and southeastern Missouri, was announced in San Francisco by the Southern Pa cific Hallway Company on June 11. Thl 4 new reduction will mean a big saving in freight rates to Hawaii su gar planters in permitting them to compete with eastern refineries in middlo west territory. New Csmmana'ant Named. near-Admiral Clifford J. Boush has been designated to succeed Uear-ad-miral C. 11. T. Moore as commandant of the naval station, Hawaii. Admiral Boush is now in command of the 2nd division or the Atlantic fleet, his flag ship being the Utah. Advices to Admiral Moore, who re tires July 2!, state that he will be relieved about July 18. so the new commandant may he expected here about the middlo of next month. o Shriners Will Boost.
