Clinton Scollard, in Columbian Magazine. : Happy New Year. Remember also that the year is largely what you make it. Begin to plan for your entry in the Floral Parade. This is the year for this town to make a great showing. That blizzard came along at just about the right time totlrive main land residents to Honolulu after en joying the holidays at home. Hysteria seems to be the proper word to apply to the opponents of the arttiy and navy appropriations and other war-preparedness movements now.olng on. REPUBLICAN MANAGEMENT. Selection of Chairman Cooper to carry on the necessary between-sea-son work of the Republican party was the natural and sensible thing to do. It is first assumed that Mr. Cooper has the time and willingly devotes it to the important task in hand. The Chairman of the Territorial Commit tee is the logical man to keep the or ganization in working order but so many of those who have held the of fice plead "private business" that they draw all the emoluments to be gained from party' position and give little in return. In other words they expect the organization to run itself. Mr. Cooper has come into political activity as one of the products of a successful fight for a square deal in partizan affairs and honest represen tation of the people. To make a success of the position he has accepted, Mr. Cooper has only to carry into practice the principles the lack of which made the Manoa in surgent movement necessary and victorious. ' It should take two sticks to accom modate the number of notches to be cut registering the prosperity events thftt will materialize during the com ing year in Hawaii. i Bank . statements thus far issued give a good start for the new year. Keep your money at home, boost for Honolulu, and you will have no cause to worry about hard times on ac count of the low price of sugar. I We hope everyone stops to think of what a wealth of good will the city owes, Hon. S. M. Damon for providing the Moaiialua field as a public play '"grflund. Without this field the avia tion exhibition would be impossible within reach of the general popula tion of Honolulu.

Langton, as sociate editor, and C. J. McCarthy, business manager. This new feature of an old and standard publication of the city enjoys an array of talent that gives promise of producing an inter esting journal. THE NEW CITY GOVERNMENT. Five Republican members of the h Board of Supervisors have agreed on a course of action in connection with the city government. In view of the controversy that has arisen over committee chairmanships these five men are practically should ering the responsibility for the effici , ency of Honolulu's government. They will be the objects of attack from the '.disgruntled ones and be held for most everything tnat goeg awry jn the gov ernment. "'?On' the other hand, by giving the people a thoroughly progressive and efficient administration they will .-gather a full share of the honor and . satisfaction that is enjoyed by honost and successful officials. '' Generally speaking the people want results, and If the Supervisors do as public officers what they promised to ' ,,l0 t-R. candidates, we do not believe the average citizen will spend much time" figuring whether the work done ,; is the product of a solid five or a ) sol fa' Seven. t It should be remembered that the people despise controversies when i the 'bickering retards progress, and j delays public business. For ''.the year 1911, the titizens of Honolulu expect a city' government honestly, efficiently and economically conducted. r Tha't is the task before the Repub ' lrf ari'-major'ity of the Board of Sup ervisors. We believe they can de .llvftr the goods, if they will keep their minds centered on the main issue. : ""'" l rd vear in the history of tire A KAiMUKl BUNGALOW FOR SALE House and three lots.

BETHEL STREET WW How many people realize or even stop to think cf how iu- finitesimally small is the prosperity and total production of the fields of Hawaii, when compared with the totals of the crops of the whole United States. Secretary Wilson in making the last annual report of the Department of Agriculture, brought out the tre mendous totals of our farm products in a' popular style so that the average reader might form some conception of what a great people we are, though, as the Secretary says "Nothing short of omniscience can grasp the value of the farm products of this year." "At no time in the world's history has a country produced farm pro ducts within one year with a value reaching $8,926,000,000, which is the value of the agricultural products of this country for 1910. This amount is larger than that of 1909 by $305, 000,000, an amount of increase over the preceding year which is small for the more recent years." There is nothing in Hawaii that would Bupply an ordinary yard stick for the measurement of these great totals. The value of one crop, corn, is fif teen hundred millions of dollars for 1910. Secretary Wilson in his report tries to make pent-up city dwellers understand how much money this is. He writes: "One billion five hundred million dollars, a sum sufficient to cancel the interest-bearing debt of the United States, buy all of the gold and silver mined in all of the countries of the earth in 1909, and still leave to the farmers a little pocket money. "The corn crop is a national asset in more than one sense. It is not merely wealth in existence for the time being, but it is an asset of per petual recurrence. Year after year, throughout the ages, a stupendous amount of corn, with incredible value, can be produced. "The cotton crop, including seed, is worth this year only three-fifths of the value of the corn crop; the wheat, crop only two-fifths, the hay crop 1 less than one-half. All of the cer- j eals, except corn, are together worth only three-fourths as much. The great allied iron and steel industries had in the latest census year for ' which results have been published, 1904, a production worth only CO per cent of the value of this year's corn crop " j Talking of hayseeds the hay crop of 1910 is worth $720,000,000, and the crop is short at that, only 60,11(1,000 tons. But the amazing fact, to the average man, is that the hay crop is worth $95,000,000 more than all the wheat raised on countless acres. There was a magnificent crop of oats, ( too, more than a billion bushels, I worth. $380..00(000. And $:!2X,787,0O0 New Crop! Fresh Pineapples!

In summarizing his compari sons, the truthful Secretary Wilson adds: "The value of the farm products of 1910 shows both gains and losses in comparison with 1909. A sain of $130,000,000 is made lor cotton lint and seed, $30,000,000 for bay, and $3,000,000 for barley. A loss was suf fered in wheat, amounting to $104, 000,000; corn, $98,000,000; oats, $26, 000,000; potatoes and wool, $23,000,000 each. "The farm value of the cereal crops declined $230,000,000 in 1910 from 1909, and the value of all crops de clined $119,000,000. A gain was made, however, in the value of animal pro ducts, amounting to $424,000,000 It has been a year of high prices for meat and animals, for poultry and Exnibition of Oil Paintings by Theodore Wores at GURREY'S Ait NEW YEAR ; MESSAGE BY Wireless i bust RING Vp'lHi AND A' BOY WILL CALL FOR THE MESSAGE eggs, and for milk and butter, and for these reasons the total ! value of all farm products increased in 1910 $304,000,000 above the estimate for 1909." When referring to the coffee con sumed by the country Secretary Wil son touches a topic of immediate in terest to Hawaii. Without making any direct statement, lie at the same time shows how foolish it is to as sume that free trade will make the price of one of life's necessities less expensive to the consumer. Mr. Wilson goes out with ar axe after the middlemen in the coffee bus iness. He says: "In the fiscal year 1910 four-fifths of the coffee imported into the United States came from Brazil, 17 per cent fom other countries in South and Central America and from A'exico, so Waterhouse Trust Real Estate for Lease Makao Beach Lots, Koolauloa, Oahu We offer these desirable beach lot? situate on the windward side of Oahu for lease for a twenty (20) year term at a moderate rental.
