GEORGEF. HENSH ALL M A.NAGER SATURDAY NOVEMBER 13, 1909 1 NATIONAL INJUSTICE TO HAWAII. r It was quite h shock to most citizens of Honolulu to hear dispute 01 the proposition that steamer travel from the Coast here had been co badly congested that intending passengers could not get booking. Today The Star prints a letter, over the signature of the general pas senger agent of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company,, which settles the matter beyond any possible question. Not only has there been congestion, but there -is congestion now. To an applicant who, wants passage, the agent of the steamship company writes, under date of November 4, that a steamer sailing December 21st, "is the first steam er on which we have accommodations" When this letter was written, three big Pacific Mail steamships the Siberia, China and-Manchuria, were scheduled to sail, and they tvill sail, from San Francisco this way before the steamer of December 21. In view of the argument that has been made, to the effect that the overbooking at San Francisco is only apparent, not real, because peo ple book for several different steamers, it is wortfi while to note the explicit language of the steamship agent. He docs not say merely that the steamers a month and a half ahead are "booked" full; he does not encourage this man who wants to buy a ticket to put his name down and take a chance. 'He simply says, definitely and beyond all equivocation, that there ARE NO ACCOMMODATIONS until December-21. And he wrote, as we have stated, on November 4, with three of his steamers to leave before December 21. The inadequacy of steamer facilities was fairly plain before. It is demonstrated now. What are the merchants of Honolulu going to do atout it? We submit that if they have the spirit to properly call the attention -of Congress to the fact that annexation has cut off from 'America these islands it was supposed to Americanize, relief will come pretty quickly. Think of America annexing a group of outlying islands and cutting ofl" travel of its own citizens to and from those islands, while at the same time talking of Americanizing them! The proposition scarcely! needs arguing, that Hawaii is entitled to immediate relief. "MALICIOUS ANIMAL MAGNETISM" OR KAHUNAISM? cent of the city's present liquor bill.

But read this: "For hours daily, and if not daily, every few days, Mrs. 'Stetson, according to Mrs. Gilbert, who in turn received her information from the old practitioner, sat with others of her followers, and bv means of thought current- rlirprrprl nt Mr, McClellan in Boston,, surely but slowly began his effaccmcnt. "But for the fact that Mr. McClellan learned of attempts , on his life, according to Mrs. Gilbert, he could not have with stood the forces. However, he is said to have discovered the plot and brought the charges of ,'malicious animal magnetism' against Mrs. Stetson, thereby depriving her of the opportunity V to work upon him, thus saving his life. "According to Mrs. Gilbert the method of electrocution through space by thought waves was for the operators to sit in a darkened room with their eyes closed. Then one of them would say: 'You all know Mr. McClellan. You all know that his place is in the darkness whence 'he came. If his place , is six feet tinder ground, that is where he should be." " 'Then,' said Airs. Gilbert, 'all present would concentrate' their minds on the one thought McClellan, and six feet un der ground. The practitioner of whom I speak told me that 1 this was kept up for days. I did not know about it myself, but I have his word for it, and he is an honorable and well know in the church.' " This is from the New York Mail's account of an alleged malicious attack upon Mrs. Eddy's chief adviser in the Christian Science church, by a prominent member who recently seceded and tried to form a new church The parties to the quarrel, those who make the charges, the victim and the person accused of making the magnetic attack, are all persons of high culture and education, prominent in a church which has in a very short time achieved a most wonderful growth among intelligent people. Christian Science, of course, is no longer laughed at. Tn some one of many forms, its principal ideas as re gards healing have captured a great deal of the medical profession as well as the rest of civilized peoples.

Although no large deals marked the history of the week's business there was a stream of trade of sufficient vo lumo and Importance to make the period a memorable one. The banks have been busy, shipping has been ac tive and the retail stores have come in for their full portion of the harvest A number of establishments have held clearance sales, the object In most cases being to make room for Christ' mas novelties, in all such affairs busi ness has come fully up to expectations. Houses not announcing these bar gain sales, withal, have, apparently, not fallen behind but have, on the other hand, profited by the stimulus to trade afforded by tho bargain-counter impetus. A feature of the week around town has been the early preparation for Christmas. 'Already great boxes of holiday goods are being opened up and the novelties are beginning to appear In the show windows. H is a start, to be sure, but some of tne more enter prising dealers seem to feel that the situation justifies It. There Is no dis counting the fact that the merchants of Honolulu have ahead of them the most prosperous Christmas season they have ever had. Everything points to it; every present circumstance con- (Contlnued on Page five.) HOT TIME COMING IN CHICAGO. The biggest and most spectacular temperance campaign the world has .ever seen is about to take place in Chicago. A campaign is be ing planned to carry the city against saloons. It has over 7000 saloons now. Never before has an effort been made to carry such a com munity, and it is safe to say that the fur will fly when the row begins. The Prohibition forces are aiming at the saloons, rather than at adop tion of an absolute prohibitory law, and they rely upon temperate bsers of liquor to carry the day for them, evidently realizing the stra tegic fact that a vote merely of the total abstainers would land them nowhere. The following announcement shows a shrewdly calculated campaign ; "The great majority of the people of Chicago, including, men, women and children, and more than a majority of the voters would welcome the abolition of the liquor traffic. T.o understand rightly what prohibition would mean in Chicago, these facts must be recognized ; ' , "Nine out of every ten men who drink at the saloon bar would welcome prohibition either on their owifaccount or that of their families or friends.
