WITHOUT going personally over our property you can gain but a very slight con
ception of the immensity of our project now being daily and hourly worked
out hy us on Palolo Hill and Ocean View a project whereby we are laying the
firm and substantial foundation of a Greater Honolulu! We believe in the pro
cess of granulation in real estate development as well as in surgery. We do not confine
our improvements to one spot on our magnificent property, and have it grow Up like a
mushroom in a single night, but we have scattered our germinal points of development far
and near over the broad and beautiful landscape, so they will gro.w together into one
mighty whole of vast and varied completeness. To fully realize and appreciate all we
have done and all we are doing, you should go out Sunday and spend the day making a .
study of our work our great project our success in moulding and forming a beautiful
suburban city. But you must not think that you can inspect in a one day's outing all the
splendid developments we have made east of Honolulu. It would take you several days to
do so. The field of our project covers an enormous territory, and includes large areas ot
the most choice residential and agricultural land on the Island of Oahu. The magnitude of
our enterprise can be better understood when you 'know that the sphere of our influence
extends from the nearest beautiful home in Kaimuki to the farthermost grain of fertile soil
in Leahi, and irom the outposts of Diamond Head to the cloud-kissed bowl of Palolo Crat
er. And what have we done within this sphere of our influence within this vast field of
our project? Within two years we have placed upon the market our five grand subdivi
sions Kaimuki proper, Ocean View, Leahi Farm, Palolo Hill and Palolo Valley and from
end to end of these our improvements have extended to the amount of thousands upon
thousands of dollars. The. result of this expenditure has been the awakening of Kapahu
lu to the unparalleled home-building opportunities that lie before it. We have developed
miles of splendid macadamized streets, cleared lots, destroyed old shacks, encouraged and

Thu principal fenturo of this bright

this year havo witnessed the greatest
activity In the building line in tho
history of the city. Since tho Urst of
July building permits to the value of
$11:1,000. In round numbers, have been
Issued, and thu woik is under way or
lias been completed. According to
the penults Issued thero have been
forty buildings started since the first

and will bu started before the munth

Kaimuki, assisted in getting extensions of electric light, telephone and transportation utili

army of home-builders rear their citadels of peace, comfort and happiness along the trails
we have blazed through the wilderness. In two years we have seen every lot in Kaimuki
proper sold all but a few remaining lots in Ocean View sold! And now on Palolo Hill the
lots are going houses are building beautiful avenues are climbing the hills magnificent
terraces are under construction artistic stone gateways arc beginning to guard the en
trances to picturesque driveways parks are being planned a' beautiful clubhouse is
under way a tennis court is designed above the clouds a band pavilion will be erected
in a few weeks, with concerts twice a month a splendid public school will be built oppo

the pure artesian water from the Kaimuki Reservoir will be pumped to the summit of
Palolo Hill the waters from the Palolo .Mountains will be piped down from the lofty water

telephone service is spreading all over the, Hill many people are planning to build in Ocean
View the waterpipe extends to the Leahi Farm Tract, and 5,000 feet more are being laid
along various streets. Churches will be erected and a temporary fire station established
and the best is yet to come. Under the stimulus of all this development the electric
traction line must extend. Can you find any other section on the island that is advancing
with such rapid strides toward the goal of prosperity? No, you can- not. Go out and see
our great project. We are world-builders. We are home-builders. We know what our
