When old business houses pass out
of existence It leacs nn opening for
I lie men of energy and courage to
eel In ninl malic n place for them
selves. Honolulu's opportunities nro
'Increasing every day and they will
multiply more rapidly miring tuc
Honolulu has every ronton to ren
der all the assistance possible to the
San l-'rn n cIsco suggestion that tho
Pacific Mall may put passenger boats
on tho Honolulu-San I'ranclFco run.
This city should commend every man
who will start the big American
steamship operators thinking along
the local line.
THAT $480 TRIP.
It is ridiculous Indeed that tho
Governor of tho Territory of Hawaii
should pay four hundred dollars for
tho privilege of tra cling on n for
Also it Is not true that no Ameri
can steamship offered on which tho
Governor of tho Territory might
make his trip homo within n tea
Thnt makes the four hundred dol
lars grand stand flubdub all the
lly waiting three days the Govcr
i . could hae traveled on tin
American steamship nnd arrived In
this illy on January 7, whereas by
I tying four hundred dollars ho trav
els In "gilded luxury" under tho
dnpanesc Hag and gains three days.
There Is no telling what remark
ably important matters may bo call
ing tho Governor back with such ex
treme haste. lYom nit Incilcnttons,
locally, there is nothing on the
boards that could not wait. Suroty
the Territory Is not justified In pay
ing ono hundred dollars a day to
gain threo more days of tho Chief
Kxecutlve's time, though always
glad to have him nt home.
If Intended as n spectacular move,
the four-hundrcd-dollar-fino trip Is
n lizzie. It will not have tha slight
est effect on San lYanclsco or Con
gress. If It has tho virtue of necessity,
thcio must ho something very excit
ing going on of which tho peaceful
citizens of Honolulu know nothing.
Indeed, "Hell must be poppln.'"

It Is In this fact thnt the authori
ty of tho Scientific American sees
tho cause for tho fovcrlsh hasto of
Gormnny to build n powerful

dcslro to challenge tho supremacy of
Great Uiltaln. "The short-sighted
