the Young Men's Christian Associa
lion. II spoke of the splendid work
done during the Hpaniah-Americaa war, j
which he salt) km really the beginning
of organized effort among the uni

cste today t a boom and a blessing to
the men on Oahn, It was greatly need
ed and the people of Honolulu who sub
scribed to the' fand for its purchase
did a plain and praiseworthy duty.
"I do not think that any former
l(l(i,0O0 spent in Honolulu will do as
much good as will the $100,000 spent
for this building,'.', said Mr. Kmith.
"The Y. M. C. A. ia a a' orgaaiaatien
without which our armies in the Held
and at home can never hope to attain
any great degree of efficiency.. The
minds of our soldiers must be kept
elenn and free from bad thoughts and
the religions work of the Y. M. C. A.
will see that this Is done.
"But we do aot dedicate the build
ing here today aa a memorial or be
cause the grounda are beautiful. We
dedicate it to a great work, to the far
renehlng power of religion. The Y.
M. C. A. cannot - live without the
breath of God in it, an1 take it from
me thnt if ever the soft-pedal is put
on religion in the Y, M. C. A. then
the organisation ., will die a natural
death. .
'We are in a period" of organisa
tions de lue," continued Mrrmrfh.
"During all my travela I have never
visited a city that can claim as many
societies as can Honolulu. - Many are
necessary, but many are hot. In sptie
of these organisations, however, the
Y. M. C. A. can lay claim to being the
most needful. . .
"Mv greatest hope Is, as tlie Army
and Navy Y. M. C. A. is this dny dedi
cated, that the men who have given
themselves to the services of their
eountry will trot up and down the
steps of this building so often that
they will wear the building out and
make it necessary for Honolulu to
build another one.
"But I want the men here today
to understand that the Y. M. C. A. is
the child of the church. Aad the church
is pot ia the business of running play
houses. Recreation. ' education and
physical culture are necessary, but
tier all are a secondary 'consideration
to the need of keeping God and hi
cosiel forever in mind. . To this end
the Y. If. C. A. la striving, spurred on
by the belief that the only way to win
the war ia to keep the soldiers enheart

If there was ever a War worth win
ning, it is this war, and if there was

of supreme sacrifices before we are
throogh, this one will mean that. ,
"It is my Arm belief that if the Y.
ML C. A. had bees a active in Russia
during the past three year as it baa
in England, France and America, the
Germans would be finding plenty to
occupy their attention on the eastern
front. But it is no wonder that the
Russian soldiers became disheartened.
For two year they were doing noth
ing but fighting, without - even the
faintest knowledge of what waa hap
pening in other parte of the world.
"In Vladivostok there are for two
miles huge supplies of guns, ammuni
tion an'd equipment which waa sent
to Russia, by America more than two
years ago. These supplies have never
been used. But had the Y. M. C. A.
been organised among the men, they
would be fighting today with as much
vigor a the British, French and Amer
icans." ; -1 - ,

Speaker Clark, faring forth far into
the Wiest, is talking about a session of
a year 'a duration. ' Chairman Fitxger.
alcf, of House Appropriations, ha re
eeatly been discussing appropriation
prospects, for, chiefly under his vise
eontrress vote the billion of fond

Chairinta Kitchin, of Ways and Means,
is presumably among the hardly Tar

Department Catch War Stride
1'iitonn the. departments have cer
tainly caught the war stride. Thev
are making good to a degree not real
ized heretofore.' ; The momentum of
preparation hss become sufficient there,
so that congress will be of very see
ondary import. . Ill other term the
moving spirits of the army ami the
navy will watch congress only out Of
the tall of the eye.' The funds will be
supplied. Revenue will be raised a
plenty. Ex-Heeretary of the Treasury
khaw, who dwell now, in Washing
ton, remarked the other day, a ha
stood at a local postofflee' window pur-
chasing a supply of I cent stamps, that
"the ..country, if need be, eould raise
a loan of $200,000,000,000 and then
some more." ; ' . r.
But officialdom and the government
at Washington - are already braeing
against a mighty prospective flow of
yawp. It will issue much from the
Republican side, where there are no
well defined policies and where eandi-.
datea for federal places are largely
making their own issues. One may
rest assured . that those senators and
represents tives, who v have . gone to
Europe, although they went unofficially,
will demand to be heard. 1 They have
a topic in which the people are inter
ested. They have been filling ,reper
torinl ears in Europe to the very brim
and getting much more attention than
they possibly could have had iq Wash
ington' where their measure was long
ago taken by colleagues. And, of
necessity, they will vex the air when
agnia they act foot o home soiL
No Tim for Economy
-' Presumably internal affaire will have
scant consideration, even . though con
gress may be in n spending mood. Old
Congressional Parsimony has a seat
way back in the scheme of things these
days. One erics 'for economy only in
a mighty din, where cars function in
distinctly. - But-, the money demands
are so enormous that waterways and
railway and public buildings and all
that must wait on war and war 'a en
terprises. And soon certain solona
there, will be who will fill in the time
scrutinizing and analyzing the course
of expenditures for war. Although
the. eountry ,will abound . in coming
moatbs with loyalty and patriotism,
tbefe will be many soon to tell bow
thing could have been better J done.
That promises' to be something of a
feature fbis winter. It will not be on
the program in the big tent but there
are politicians who will make it some
