TAFT TO ft m ELK S SPECIAL CARNIVAL EDITION Hello 9 mm 'M JlM.- ,A ttmmamtnmrm imuna wuimteyt? eSv t I '" 1 ' President Ready to Open Elks' Carnival Tuesday Night. Will Open Carnival Do you who will probably see the lighting of the Elks' Car nival at seven o'clock on the evening of February 21st really appreciate what it all means? Can you actually make your self believe that by the mere pressure on a push button in the city of Washington, at about 1 a. m. Wednesday morn ing a fete will be started in Honolulu at 7 p. m.'theday be fore? Astounding as this may be is it not more astonishing that the ruler of nearly one hundred million people, at the behest of some three hundred of Honolulu's Best People On Earth, is going to do just this very thing? President Taft after his day is over will be in direct connection with Hono lulu, his finger on one end of a telegraph wire with the eyes of multitudes in Honolulu on the other end waiting to note the exact moment when the President's finger will push the lit tle button on his desk. For possibly five minutes Honolulu will have the right-of-way over the whole world on the Pacific Cable Company's lines. This means something more than a mere message. It means that no matter what business may be in a hurry, no matter how important a message must be sent from any one of the hundred million people in the United States, it will have to give way Jo the President's message to Honolulu Lodge No. 616, B. P. 0. E. This does not mean so much to the Lodge as it does to Honolulu. The mere stoppage of the work of the cable for just five minutes for a clear line will certainly make thousands who have never even heard of Ho nolulu or Hawaii sit up and take notice. Mention of the fact of Taft's message will be printed broadcast over the world wherever newspapers are printed. It will be the longest, di rect wire ever used for a purpose of the kind by any human being. Honolulu is to be congratulated on the fortunate sugges tion made several months ago that the President be re quested to do what he is going to do. There was a unanim ity of opinion on the subject that there was no gainsaying. Honolulu got what she asked for and at a good deal more personal inconvenience to the President than would be the sending of a nomination to the Senate for confirmation. "There's a reason," also a moral. MINERS FLASH ALOHA FROM SHIP James S.

NO DISBURSING AGENT IN THE TERRITORY TO HAND IT OVER Who is to pay out the Federal fund appropriated hy Congress for this ses sion of the legislature? Last session Secretary Mott-Smith acted as dls-j horsing agent, and everything was ready for 'itc penlng of the Legisla ture. I It seems that snmeoti" has slipped cog this time and the rm.nibors of the Senate and House will have to wait' for their mileage, and the officers and clerks of the Legislature will not re-! ceive their pay today, as was expected. The money bus not come, neither la. the disbursing agent here. Congress made the appropriation this year $;iO,O00. This goes for the inci dental expenses of both houses, the pay of the officers and clerical assist ance. Whether the Secretary, who Is re turning to Honolulu on the Siberia, which arrives here on Wednesday next, has the legislative money In his Inside pocket or not, Is not known, but it Is hoped that Is so. Falling the ar rival of the Federal' money, the clerks will be paid out of the Territorial funds appropriated for the expenses of this session. UN0NSL1M HOURS.
