By his achievements the Secretary of War has attained an emin ence in the affairs and the confidence of men which entitle him to every mark of respect, and every hospitable courtesy we can extend to him. In the party is the President's eldest daughter. To her as a woman, and the daughter of the President, Honolulu offers every duty of hos pitality and every tribute of chivalrous respect and admiration. Were 'herself or her station unknown, her qualities and graces would com mand this service. While she is our guest we shall consider ourselves hostages to her pleasure and her safety. The Taft party is a notable one both in its personnel and its objects. It is an embassy of peace and good will to the people beyond seas who own our flag and arc a part of our national greatness, but who have not yet been a part of us long enough to get into the national ways, or "become familiar with the national traditions; with whom likewise we arc not yet perfectly familiar, but with whom we want to be. While it is an embassy to the Philippines, we may look on it, too, as an embassy to us, and in so doing bear in mind the importance and greatness of the nation whose embassy it is, and of which, happily we are a part. It will not be invidious to speak of one member of the party, among so many worthy by what they have done to be spoken of at length. But the bond of sentiment between Hawaii and Senator Ncwlands, is a close one. It was Senator Ncwlands who prepared and introduced the Joint Resolution by which Hawaii was annexed, which put an end to the perplexities and uncertainties of five years of national suspense. Only those who knew the burdens and difficulties of those years, and shared in theni, can appreciate the relief that annexation brought. The Newlands' Resolution was but one of many testimonials the Senator from Nevada has given, of his friendship for the islands, and now that he is here, we shall have the satisfaction of showing him in some de gree our appreciation of his friendship. It is the crowning merit of this great embassy from a great nation to its newest possessions, that it is representative and national, and not partisan political. It goes, representing the nationality of the Am erican people, and not their political divisions or differences. The Phil ippines have not become a part of the, territory of the great American Republic without strong differences of opinion as to the wisdom of the acquisition, and our duty to the peoples and the lands acquired. Patri otism and honesty have actuated every divergent opinion. But in this embassy there is no token of these divisions. There arc senators, and representatives in congress, holding different views on these subjects. But they are not put forward. Each, holding sincerely and honestly to his views, goes with open and candid mind, an American with fellow Americans, to sec and know that of our new brethren, which he shall be able to see and know. That immense benefits to the country will accrue from this embassy there can be no doubt. That everv individual in it will get the same im pressions, or see things in the same light, or even that each will get absolutely correct impressions of conditions and institutions, is not to be expected. But out of all the views and impressions there will come that wonderful composite, which so often reveals primary truth and tendency. Interest in our new possessions will be stimulated every where, and everywhere there will be the desire to do them good. It is a Red Letter Day for Honolulu. There is nothing here but sentiments of cordiality for the Taft party. We feel honored by their presence. We desire to show every courtesy in our power, and to ex tend the hospitality for which, we are proud, Hawaii is noted. o Japan And The Pacific tl' V be the final terms upon which Jap an consents to make peace," says the News, "one may assume that it will not accept any settlement which docs not give it absolute immun ity from the menace of future Russian aggressions. This will be the only logical attitude for it to take at the end of a war in which the issue was so plainly marked and the victory so overwhelming. "Considering these facts there is every reason for crediting the sug gestions already thrown out by certain Japanese ministers as to the terms which Japan will exact. It will demand that its paramount posi tion in Korea and southern Manchuria be recognized and will require the cession of Sakhalien island. In addition, Vladivostok, if Russia is j to be permitted to retain it, must be dismantled and left unfortified. These conditions would be only such as any victorious power might I rightfully exact, yet if fulhlleu they would have the momentous effect of establishing Japan as the dominant power in the far east, if not in the Pacific. North of Vladivostok there are no Asiatic ports worth considering, those in northern Siberia and on the Kamchatkan peniii' sula being ice-bound most of the time. So far as concerns the coast of China, Japan, through its dominance as leader of the oriental races, will be equally free from dangerous rivals. From the foreign powers holding isolated colonial territories it has little to fear. "Perhaps the most important immediate result of the war is this fact that from the arctic, circle to the southern boundary of China, Japan will be master of the situation. The entire Asiatic seaboard, from Siberia to Indo China, is screened from the open Pacific by the great chain of islands beginning with Sakhalien on the north and including Japan, the Ryukyus, Formosa and the Philippines. Of this great stra tegic frontier to the mainland, Japan will hold everything but the Phil ippines. With its new prestige, its hegemony among the yellow races, its supremacy along the Asiatic coasts, both continental and insular, Japan has indeed taken a long forward leap as a result of the war." o i T A Notable Woman from the iirst, and their economic and industrial welfare is now receiving attention. In the Taft party is Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, who is on a mission, unique, but important. She is making a study of the industrial and moral condition of women and children, primarily in our new possessions, and secondarily throughout the world. That such an object should appeal to the conscience of 'America, is American, and highly crcditahle. That it will throw light on other problems is unquestioned. That it will do good, goes with out saying. Of Mrs. J. Ellen Foster herself, the work she has done, the influence for good she has wielded, the recognition of that work and of her Honolulu today welcomes tlm Taft party. Secretary Taft himsclt is not altogether a stranger to us. He was a guest within our gates once before. Wc have had more than one occasion to appreciate the sincere friendship he entertains for "Japan and the Pacific," is the title of an editorial in the Chicago Daily News, in which it is pointed out what a tremendous step as a world power Japan is taking as a result of the war. "Whatever may The political welfare of the peo ple of our new possessions is not the sole consideration that weighs with the American people. Their spiritual and educational welfare have been objects of consideration Mir. What a luxury to bathe when you have all the Hot Water you want.

It is a curious fact that while sugar plantation stocks in the local market may weaken with each reduction in the prico of sugar, sugar plantation bonds almost ns Invariably strengthen. It may be that people who have money to Invest hesitato to put it into stocks when the price of sugar Is going down, but in their desiro to keep it invested compete with each other for bonds and so drlvo the prico up.
