HONOLULU AND THE NAVY The meeting of Honolulu's selected business men With Admiral Very thid afternoon will be watched with much interest. The inspiration and the purpose ot ihe meeting are at present as much an unknown quantity as the result. It Is a new move for selected busi ness men of the city to be invited to a conference with the commander of the Naval Station. On the face it It, the Idea of the Navy Department thus test ing the temper of the community is a good one. It will be possible to discuss the sub ject when the people know the drill of events which the officers of the na tion wish discussed. Citizens of Ha waii are not disposed to stand in the way of the development of naval strength in the Pacific and especially on the Island of Oahu. The questions at issue seem more matters for the action of the American Government. COLLEGE PROGRESS Regents of the College of Agrlcul- ture and Mechanic Arts have. made a 'good move by decideding to go ahead with what offers, provided they can not obtain just what they want in the way of a President for the insti tution. The man who is offered the re ; sponsibility of starting this Institu tion, at a salary . lower than the J' high priced professor with a reputa tion, may not feel highly compli , hiented. Nevertheless a man with jt die right spirit, who recognizes that : he has a reputation to make and this is a first class place to lay the ' foundations and build the structure, 1 such a man may prove to be the best In the end. The college should at all hazards S go forward. Moth and rust will cor " lupt the best scheme on earth that i remains inactive, waiting for things to come its way. NUUAND DAM MANAGEMENT i Are they making Howland the I ' goat" of the Nuuanu dam? ',' This is a natural query arising from the renewal of the Nuuanu dam campaign and the published conclu sion of one contractor that the man in, charge of the work Is of no use t anyway. The Bulletin is not in a posl s tlon to dispute the word of the con tractor. This paper is forced to agree ; with most any man 'who says that the Nuuanu dam has not been a buc- cess. Yet two experts have been paid a high price to look over the , job and the criticism has not been tierious. Again when the contractor ' interviewed lauds a former officer of tho Public Works department to tha j, Kkles, it recalls the fact that when the man referred to was hi ofneo, he was the object of very generous crit icisms from nianj sides. It is there tore necessary to stop and tlilnk a moment on whether the Public Works department Is especially In competent us at prudent officered, or it is impossible to obtain ofllcers to suit. The more this dam business Is dis cussed the more one is reminded that there are four sides to some ques tions the inside and the outside, as well as the right side and the wrong side. In the present phase of criticism, this paper believes that It Is unjust i.nd evidence of-, personal favoritism to hold one officer of the department more at fault than another for the failures scored against the Nuuanu dam. There can be no just division of responsibility between llowland and Holloway. llowland is the engi neer in charge but he is subject to the orders of Superintendent Hollo way. Any fair minded man would hold that either the present team should carry the work to completion or a clean sweep should be made of tho whole outfit, and a new Public Works administration put in charge. If the project were in the hands of a private corporation, it would go forward right or the managers would know the reason why. There is no good reason for the Nuuanu dam construction being handled with less speed and com petence than would be required and secured by a private corporation. MAY NOT BUILD (Continued from Page 1) tens property, which is to be used as the temporary quarters for the Agri cultural College, and which it is pro posed to move over onto the lots of Cecil Brown adjoining, will be moved as previously decided, the Governor says. This is probably on account of the fact that the moving of the build ing would not be an action which could not be remedied in case the de cision of the United States Supreme Court was adverse to the Territory. In such case,' the building could be Tiioved back again. But it looks very ranch as if Hono lulu will have no. new high school this year. PROFESSOR CRAWLEY HAS MANY ASSISTANTS. Professor J. T. Crawley, for many years well and favorably known In these Islands but at present director of Cuba's Agricultural Experimental Station at Santiago' de las Vegas, has gathered about him six assistant ex perts on the line of work, in which he is engaged.

Si Brown Declares For Transportation Honolulu should own Its & K Si K i8i St 18! '& iS , s .si "M !S '& m K m m 'si iJ IK own passenger steamer, and transportation is the thing." This is the opinion of W. E. Brown, whom President Mor gan has appointed as the new member of the Hawaii Promo tion Committee to represent the Chamber of Commerce. "I would like to have the Honolulu community own its own steamer,", said Mr. lirown, "The city of Honoluju has money enough and busi ness enough to control its own steamship line and I think that is the end towards which we all ought to work. We need the people here and they will come if we give them the transporta tion. , 1 , ' ,. "It pays to be careful, just the same. When Honolulu goes into a steamship proposi tion, it should be certain of having the right steamer. An error at the start would ruin tho whole thing and keep it dead for a good many years to come." m x h h m tai s ;w m m si b FIMIV StTTLfD On account of the settlement of the difficulties previously existing between Land Commissioner Pratt and the Thompson Settlement Association the t;uit of I,: S. Thompson et al., members of the association, has been discon tinued. The trouble arose over some Kau. lands which Pratt wanted to cut up into 25-acre tracts while the as sociation dertiauded that the parcels be of 100 acres each. Pratt visited Hawaii recently and a compromise was arrived'at by which the Land Commis sioner agreed to divide the land into parcels of about 40 acres each. The famous Walter art collection, valued at $100,000, is being brouit from the East and will be exhibited in the museum at Golden Gate park. t SALE OF Laces, Embroideries, Appliques, etc., NOW GOING ON From our Window Display vou can get an idea of the low prices that will prevail.

EHLERS Whose Sales OLD KAIMILOA BELL WILL SOUND WAELUKU FIRE ALARM The old "Kalmlloa bed" will reBound the echo of long ago. W. J. Coelho, who has been in town on business connected with the fire i department of Wailuku, will return to his home on the Claudine this evening 'st 5 o'clock. He succeeded in getting 1 the famous bell of tho old Hawaiian . war ship "Kalmlloa" for tho tower of , his fire department. . I President Kennedy of the Iiiter-Iis- tind Navigation Company was ap proached by Coelho with a request that the Kalmlloa bell be given for the use of the Wailuku Are department. It nas been under consideration lor some time, and Kennedy, who saw that th? lequest was for a good purpose con sented and gave the bell to Coelho. "I am going away today with my oU nnd historic bell," said Coelho this morning. "I have about thirty boy v.ho are always ready to resuond to tho fire calls. While here I spent 'some :l my time in getting instructions from fire chief Thurston. I am thank lul that many generous Honolulu peo- jlc have assisted me In my effort to get some things for my district. Among other things, I have been very fortunate In getting from Gover nor Frear and Superintendent Hollo way the consent of extending our wa ter main' at' Wailuku. This has been a great plllkia with us over there. The appropriations for such purpose which passed the previous Legislatures were for some unknown reasons held up and uence the Wallukuans were greatly In convenienced. As soon as 1 found that Frear had taken office I came down ticro' immediately, knowing fully well at the time that he would judiciously consider our proposition. After he had carefully looked into the whole thing he agreed with me and promised to utilize the appropriation provided for the extension of the water main. This is great news to the Wailukuans, and 1 am glad to' say that we have a good ilovernor who can, look to the needs of he poor as well as the rich." i YOUNG FILIPINOS i c()iing ' ' .
