In holding tho position that ficlght

ficlght favors lo bestow Khali go
to tho tiansportntlon company wil
ling lo lecognlze (ho passenger
needs of n glowing city.
This spirit of (o-oporatlon between
all Intoiests of this city nnd Terri
tory, this mandatory ntlltudo to
ward all matters hning to do with
tho public good, should hnvo pre

Honolulu Is In tho mldet of n
transportation crisis in more than
Wo need tho tiansportntlon, and
on the decision of tho business men
nnd tho transportation companies lit
tills time will depend tho speed with
which Hawaii 1km nines independent
cal Interests mid therefoio respoiislvo

in Its present wny, appealing to
steamship operators inning no par
ticular local Interests nnd therefore
lcnvliu Hawaii at the meic) of the
outsider m.l possibly tlio foiclgiicr.

light, both hero and oil tho main

ple mo doing to Honolulu Is not up
puclated by them, nevertheless (hat
liaun is far-reaching. The vested
Intci oats of the city seem to hnvo no

The merchants of Honolulu nio
