Citizens and firms who were the largest contributors to the' entertain ment fund have been tho first to urge that the needed money for this pur pose shall be appropriated. I Tho people of Honolulu want njen of the Fleet to enjoy themselves. They want them to have all there Is tti bo had, within reason, for nothing. They want tho Men to be suro of a good time. The officers will have am pto prlvnto entertainment If the gen eral entertainment Is not enough. 'The Admiral has said and everyono litis icported that the free car-rides afe most appreciated by the enlisted nicn. i Supply tho funds nnd open the doors wide, whether we have sixteen battleships or one. I "-' GOVERNOR FREAR'SLiND POLICY. i The last man In the Territory to use his newly outlined land policy as ii weapon for taking n slap at the European Immlgrunt would be Clov-e-rnor Frcar. ; That his very commendable schemo should be taken as such a cudgel Is ridiculous In the extreme. It serves no other purpose than to furnish campaign material for mainland ene trilea of Hawaii who have been active In Congress and will continue to bo active In Congress to accomplish the defeat of the Administration policy In these Islands. tj Governor Frear's homesteadlng jiroposal as It appears on paper bears fiiery promise to serving tho end fur .which it has been framed an easy way for the honest homesteader and a complete, blockade for the land speculator. One of tho most commendable fea tures of the Governor's plan Is his wiping out of the Interest charge made against the homesteader. There Is every reason why the man who necks to make a home for himself by developing land which he cultivates bIi'ouM not be loaded down with an Interest charge as well as his pur chase price. Tho commonwealth will reap a splendid profit from the In dustry of the homebullder and his way should be made as easy as pos sible. ! The ten-year period for obtaining title .j tho land will not work a hardship on the mnn who goes upon the land to establish a home. It he does not wish to be a permanent set tier, he Is not wanted. The Territory has had enough of tho law-dodger, the speculator and promoter whose chief aim Is to get possession of land In order to "make a turn" and get out of the country, or become an ab sentee landlord as the chief benefl clary of an incorporated "small farm" worked by gang-labor. The proof of the pudding Is the eating. The schemo looks all right Now back It up with Action, so that the citizens of this Territory and those attracted from abroad may make their start. i Meanwhile the campaign for the European immigrant will move stead' lly forward. The laboring element of the Islands will become better bal unced. The day of servile labor will pass uwuy, and the more ambitious of tho new arrivals will speedily obtain independent homes. There will be an end of the false policy of making a loud noise regard Ing the Americanizing that is going on when as a matter of fact a secret and continuous duplication of the un desirable features of the great sugar estate is being brought about, to the detriment of all things American. Governor Frear's land policy, tak en In conjunction with the known Federal and Territorial Admlnlstra tlon determination to obtain the Eu ropean Immigrant for tho Islands, is thoroughly honest. MAINLAND BUSINESS SHOW REVIVING. Hawaii will nc to acknowledge with thanks the charge laid against It of being, at the present time, one of the most prosperous places on earth. Tli- no zc-nij at times to be very s!o-v In becoming distributed from the hands of the few Into the pockett uf the many, but with the present course of affairs It cannot be a matter of many months before the good Influence, by crops nnd good prices, will be more forcibly felt nil along the line. The same can hardly be said of the mainland. The banking circulars which e9tcrdny predicted a long nr ray of good things anil good times, appear tomorrow with reasons why It has not worked out as expected. One is impressed with this by fol lowing the Clows circulars, which re flect the ntmosphero of Wall Street. And, say what we may, Wall Street Is the heart of things In financial Amer ica. It is true that the outlook ,1s better, but the revival Is not as speedy as many were led to expect. Clews in the latest circular says: "We are now approaching the pe riod of usual summer dullness; nnd many operators are absent on vaca tions or disinclined to activity until political and crop uncertainties aro cleared away. The crop outlook, as a whole, continues encouraging. Oc casional damage has been done by ex cessive rnlhs, but as a rule such In juries are more than offset by high conditions In wheat, corn, oats, and -i- lNli3r -&i-t-iAiM e-vibw . cj6noMvill,i FOR SALE.

Then dividends began to decline, nnd now tho companies find themselves in n toniewhat seitotis itllemmn, out of which there 'are only two ways of es cape, cither n recovery In earnings through business Improvement, or u still further retrenchment In ex penses. Should the latter bo neces sary, It means a cut-ilo'wn In wages, or n withdrawal of the advance grnnted to labor In 1900 and 190. It Is to be hoped such n step will, not be necessary, nnd that a satisfactory solution will be found In business re- vlvnl. There has been serious talk of an advance In freight rates, but this would be unwise iollc , since it would check rather than stimulate traffic, and revive public hostility to railroads, which after having done sufficient hnrm Is now really nbattng. The most favorable feature In the railroad situation Is that tho number of Idle cars is beginning to decrease. It is to bo hoped the railroads have experienced the wotst of the depres sion, and will before long begin to reflect the Improvement In general business. Clearing-house returns are nlieady making better exhibits; tho declines now running In the vicinity of 15 per cent, compared with 20 per cent, and over a few weeks ngo, and this In spite of diminished specula te activity." liny reported In other sections. Corn Is tho only exception, being somewhat backward; but this Is a crop which develops rapidly, and would quickly respond to a few days of hot weather. So far there U no reason for concern In regard to the crops; on the con trary, there Is still every reason to look forward to comparative abund ance nnd good prices for the fruits of the earth; conditions still- being so high as to lenvo ample margin for ordinary deterioration during the next two or three months. 'In the business outlook there is little change, nnd a very quiet sum mer for nil lines of Industry is In prospect. It Is quite evident that a further period of rest will be neces sary for convalescence after the EC' ere crisis of last October. Recovery will require more time than some I in patient people will admit. The sit uation is steadily Improving, and the outlook Is certainly hopeful; but this Is not a time to bo over-sanguine, nnd moderate anticipations aro much more likely to be realized than those of oer-enthuslaBtlc prosperity boon! ers, whose wishes nre too often fath er to the thbught. Tho uusatisfac tory condition of railroad affairs Is still an element to bo reckoned with. Latest reports of earnings continue unsatisfactory; the gross returns of railroads reported in May Bhowing a loss of over 24 per cent, compared with less than 20 per cent. loss iu April, 14 'per cent. In March, 10 per cent, in February, and 9 per cent, in January. It hns thus taken seven months for the railroads to feel tho full consequences of the panic. Thoso consequences have grown steadily worse. The first effect was to render it Impossible for the railroads to raise money for carrying out projected Im provements: the next effect was a de crease In earning power, and a com- Another $25.00 Excursion To KILAUEA VOLCANO -iV---jt - HIsTW xMMwklUaiQ FOR RENT.

LITTLEFIELD SCORES ROOSEVELT RESULTS CHICAGO, III., June 2C. Con gressman Charles B, I.lttlelleld, whom the Administration saved from defeat at the last election In Maine, held President ,ltoosevelt up to ildlculo and scorn today In a speech before the Illinois State Uar Association, at the convention In the Chicago Ileach Hotel. Ills topic was "The 'Sherman Anti-Trust Act and Its Proposed Amendment." The 200 or more members of tho association present leaned forward in surprise to listen when Congress man Llttlcfleld unllmbered his bat teries on tho President. The first In dication of It enmo when he leferred to Senntor Lodge's assertion at the Republican National Convention that "lloosovelt enforced anti-trust laws." "I thlnk" said tho Congressman from Maine, "that this enforcement has been a matter of proclamation rather than performance.
