The Republican District Conven
tion held in this city last Monday
was a harmonious body. The del
egates, came together in caucus dnd
adjusted their differences after
amicable debate and careful consid
eration. There was no jobbery or
tricks apparent. The resulting
nominations should have the undi
vided support on election day of
everv Reoublican voter and of
enough voters who have not hith
erto voted the ticket, to insure their
The Hilo nominee for the Senate,
S. I. Desha, is perhaps the most
gifted Hawaiian in the Islands.
He has a fine education, is a man
of rare eloquence and enthusiasm.
He has the best interests of Hawaii
and Hawaiians at heart and will be
one of the best forces in the upper
house next winter. His colleague
on the ticket, J. D. Paris, is known
to Hawaii and the Territory. His
record in the Senate two years ago
fits him to be a most useful mem
ber in the next session.
The representative ticket is
strong. The two Hawaiians, Jim
Lewis and Kauwila are practical
headed men and popular. They
have the confidence of the white
voters in the Island and among
Mr. Paty is not so widely known.
But he is a gentleman of unques
tioned integrity and in his own
community has the warm endorse
ment of men of all parties. Mr.
Pritchard of Honokaa is a man
who will do good work in the
House. He has all the qualities
which go to make a good legislator.
In San Francisco money is easier
at low rates on real estate than it
has ever been before. Real estate
is counted good security for
amounts almost equal to its value.
San Francisco poses as the entre
pot of the Orient to the United
States, and her merchants look with
envious eyes toward any competitor
that challenges their exclusive right
to the new markets of the Pacific.
If San Francisco capital were as
jealous of its legitimate territory as
the merchants are of their cus
tomers they would have a closer
knowledge of the needs of Hawaii.
The more prosperous this Territory
becomes the greater are its contribu
tions to the prosperity of San Fran
cisco. In flush times Hawaii is a
prodigal buyer. At all times she
is a liberal buyer. Her prosperity
is worth cultivating even by those
whose headquarters are 2500 miles
As stated by Mr. Batchelder,
Hawaii is San Francisco's legiti
mate field. It is not only her field
in which to sell goods but it is her
field for financiering. San Fran
cisco capital should study the needs
of Hawaii as much for Hawaii's
sake as for her own. The sounder
our industries become, so much the
better is Hawaii as a tributary in ' her needs and the needs of this Is-
the enrichment of San Francisco. ' laud so many many times that he

Prior to the reciprocity treaty of
1877 with the United States, the
independent state of Hawaii pro
duced about 20,000 tons of sugar,
and after its enactment the industry
grew rapidly until it reached its
present proportions, with an annual
output of 350,000 tons and over.
It was claimed bv business men
of former days, that the output
would never exceed 150,000 tons
annually and sanguine individuals
venturing such outspoken opinions,
were called visionaries. Yet judg
ing from results twenty-five years
from the date of the reciprocity
treaty, these expectations were
dwarfed by results that are realized.
It has all transpired through the
protective tariffof the United States,
protecting and stimulating the in
dustry to its most possible limits.
Hawaii at the present day, has a
modest output of 25,000 bags of
coffee annually, and the claim is
made that with ample protection,
this industry would also make most
wonderful if not a greater showing,
than the former has. Why should
the output not reach from three to
four million bags annually?
It is not claimed that Hawaii
alone could ever supply the entire
markets of the United States, but
we are not asking it for Hawaii
alone, but also for the other tropical
American Territories. I he require
ments of the whole nation would
Again has Hilo and Hawaii the
opportunity of presenting her claims
to the attention of men high in the
councils of the nation. There will
be grievances aired before the com
mission which deserve to be heard.
There will be criticisms of acts per
formed and duties neglected on the
part of Territorial authorities.

happened that is wrong should not
interfere with Hilo's build-up policy.
We want harbor improvements,
including a breakwater. The com
mission will be piloted about Hilo
bay and their own eyes will testify
to the apparent necessities. Two
of the members, Messrs. Foster and
Mitchell are Pacific States Senators.
As promoters t)f the commerce of
the Pacific and upbuilders of Paci
fic cities, and Pacific shipping, they
will be inclined to readily recog
nize the justness of Hilo's demands.
There is 110 politics in Hilo's need
and demand for'better public build
ings and better harbor facilities and
the commission cannot fail to make
recommendations in accordance
with the facts in the case.
GOVERNOR DOLE FORGETS.,
It was just like Governor Dole
to go before the Senate commission
and in his enumeration of subjects
which he thought they should con
sider, make no reference to Hilo or
the Island of Hawaii. The Gover
nor's range of view covers a radius
of less than one mile. When he
was giving the commission the cue,
he did not think of Hilo. He rarely
thinks anyhow. He was perhaps
afraid the Senators would come to
Hilo if he mentioned such a place.'
He did not know what kind of a
mare's nest they might find over
here, so he didn't even mention
Hilo. He was probably afraid they
would go back to Frisco by the
Enterprise and that's what they
should do iuste.ad of pottering back
The facts are that Dole just for-
got it. He has forgotten Hilo and
eventually come from her own pos

to the Federal coffers of the Gov
ernment, and can it not be presumed
that she should receive some bene
fits from her mighty and powerful
Is it not supposed, that in the
time of a national conflict, we could
muster hosts of loyal citizens, who
would defend the flag of these tropi
cal shores? If this be so, then we
must populate our mountain lands
with a vigorous manhood which
can be made possible only, by the
building up of an industry, permit
ting people of a Saxon or Latin race,
to win a home and profitable exist
ancc in the healthy zone of the trop
ics. Countrymen: Are we to lie for
ever supinely on our backs, and
not urge an appeal for benefits
which are due us as a part of the
American commonwealth. The vis
ion of a grand and glorious de
vclopement awaits us, quickening
the pulse of our future social and
commercial wellfare, if this object
can be obtained.
Therefore let us send forth car-
nest and persistent pleadings ior
protection to the coffee industry,
and have them strong enough that
their reverberating echoes will
resound in the halls of Congress

creation of a new and great source
of wealth lies at our doors.

THE WORLD NEWS GO.
P. O. BOX 97
The Chinese of this city will publish a weekly paper
called the WORLD NEWS. The object of the journal is
to spread wisdom, practical knowledge and the news of the
day among the Chinese people. In China there are few
newspapers, which is largely the reason why the Chinese
people are so far behind the times compared with Eu
ropeans and Americans.
For this reason the leading Chinese merchants of the
Hawaiian Islands have formed a company for the publi
cation of a Chinese paper at Hilo.
Mr. H.Jackson, a gentleman of superior talents and
education has beccn employed
year's editorial experience at Honolulu.
The offices of the newspaper arc on Front Street, Bow
Wong hall. Advertisers will communicate with either W.
K. Akana or Hop Warn Co.
The officers of the new publishing company arc W. K.
