to the communication recently received
by the Governor, nnd iy him
turned over to thp commercial bodies
of the city, which came from tho State
Board pf Trade of California. It asked
Hawaii to cooperate with tbe Western
Coast States in preparing suggestions
on tariff revision,

On Saturday afternoon tho Governor

Thero are institutions nnd objects,
educational, and charitable, in Honolulu
and all over tho Islands, that can only
bo kept up by voluntary subscriptions,
and this ussistnnco frequently comes
only through the personal porsuasions
of (hose who nro furthering such work;
this Is not nlways pleasant, nor in results
as effective as tho objects merit.
For illustration, I will name a few of
such objects: Oahu College, tho leading
educational institution of tho Islands,
has a constnnt struggle to keep going;
it needs a large endowment, nnd has a
debt now of over $90,000.
Mid-Pacific Institute, being
of Kawaiahao 8cminaryrand
$ills Institute, together with the
and Korean educational work, Is,
through tho genoroslty of ceitaln
persons, erecting its new
buildings in Msnoa Valley. Thero Is
much more needed for construction and
grounds, Then will come tho never-ending
struggle for funds to carry on
tho work, which nn ondowment would
greatly relieve. ,
Hawaii has an excellent and deserving
educational and Industrial institution
in the Hilo Boardlne School: this
needs assistance and endowment. There
are also other such institutions scat

ucpondent upon private assistance, nil
