They stepped into the breach at a most opportune moment. The Fair and Racing Association would probably have arranged a one day racing card for the Fourth. The senior league would have had four games in two days ,its regular schedule, but that is about all that would have been undertaken. By comparison it can be seen bow much the Foresters have done. In staging a carnival such as is "Make Happy" there is to be encountered all the work of preparing for a county fair except for the departments of exhibits. The exhibits are instructive and in teresting but it is the amusement features preeminently that draw the crowds within the gates. That is the part the Foresters have played. They have put on a county fair without exhibits and in so doing they have stimulated several branches of sport besides break ing the midsummer dullness. Another thing that should be said for the Foresters. They did not go to the Fair and Haeing Association asking for the use of the grounds nor did they start haggling or dickering over costs of secur ing the grounds. They came forward with a straight out and clear cut proposal and were generous in their offer. They agreed to take The outsanding feature of the market for bonds during re cent months has been the heavy buying for permanent in vestment. Notwithstanding that this demand has resulted in a sub stantial advance in prices for bonds in general, the present outlook indicates a gradual trend toward the level which pre vailed some years ago, particularly as applied to issues of the better grade, which still yield a liberal return. It is doubtful if it will be possible for several years to pur chase bonds at prices which will yield the return now pos sible. WATERH0USE TRUST CO., LTD. HONOLULU. R.
