The promotion ' committee letter,
which was addressed to Mr. MeClellan
before he left the Islands en rout to
Washington, elaborated on trnvel sta
tistics between San Francisco aod Ho
nolulu. The data showed that -it-was
realised, locally, that tonnage was be
ing taken out of the Pacific for good
and sufficient war reasons,, but at tha
same time mainland people atill planned
to apend their vacations . away from
home and, being unable to come to Ha
waii because of the disturbance of
steamer conditions, wr4 now traveling
to Florida and other competitive points.
The committee said, also, that many
foreign steamers were passing through
Honolulu, to and from the Coast, with
a. rommodntious for passengers, but un
filed from here. Hevrral steamers were
mentioned as traveling with light lists
of passengers and large passeuger .ac
commodations untakeu, as for instance,
the Hiberin Maru with room for eighty
additional persons; Nipou Maru, sixty
six; Venezuela, seventy nine; Colombia,
fifty six; Niagara, one hundred eight.
The total of these untakeu accommoda
tions indicated that about 5110 persous
could have beeu accommodated out. of

previous time In which the shipping
Companies eaa advertise . that they
have accommodations from Xan Fran
cisco to Honolulu. The committee sug
gested, to. obviate thia difficulty, that
permits V be given for six ' months'
periods. It waa even suggested that
the CanadianrAnstralian liners be giv
en coastwise permits to call at Seattle
on both the Inward aad outward bound
voyages to land and take on passengers
at mainland domestic port. ... -
Mr: Berndt said that within the hour
Mr.. Avery had told him thnt unless ac
tion takeni' by the shipping board was
favorable Mo the suggestion for per-
mits for longer periods, his company
could ' not, very .well engage In the
coastwise btiishess. If such favorable
action were taken it would be up to the
T. K. K. and other foreign lines to re
arrange their affairs to meet the privi
lege given under the permits. ; .
vThe speaker said that Mr. Aver waa
fnt in full poesessiwn of statistics re
garding travel to and from tha Islands,
or the imssibitlties included in making
use of tbe coastwise privilege, auu
was astonnded that he had had to coma
all the way to Honolulu to obtnin this
information. ;;
, Mr; Berndt ndded that Mr. Avery
had been summoned to Washington aad
would be there before the end of Jan
usry, and while there would be able
to bring together much valuable In
formation' concerning California-He
waiian steamer uae.
He also' presented a motion thai the
directors endorse tbe plan outlined in
the promotion letter mid that Mr, Mc
Clcllan be directed, immediately, to
get to work on that bnma.

' It waa agreed that there waa a favor
able trend to the movement under dis
cussion, whifh, if taken advantage of
by the chamber and handled vigorous
ly by McClcllan, would bring tbe re
lief to Hawaii sought for.
' The -ehamber alio discussed a pro
gram of action which would guide Mr.
McClcllan, generally, at Washington
concerning other matters of interest
not on,v t the chamber but to the Is-
anas generally. It waa decided to
leave the routine mattera to the con
sideration of the president and secre
tary in connection with the committee
of the chamber which haa jurisdiction.

Fourth Cavalry, atationed at ftchollald
Barracks, Honolulu, comes 'a ' request
for. arrangements to. J), made to have
Hilo'a best baseball thine linej up to
fucet 'hrt lirvaslon of the troopers.
It may be remembered that ia Sen-
tern ber last most of the cavalry boys
were in nuo on a visit to the Volcano
and thnt while here they made an ex
cellent reputation for themselves. They
were also much taken with the island
as a whole, consequently they are de
sirous of making another trip across,
or at least the ball players are, hence
this letter. r , - .
In bis communication Sergeant Ray
mond asks whether we in- Hilo would
be iaterested In series of ball fcnmea
In the near future between tha cham
pions of Hilo and picked team of
all-stars from the Fourth Cavalry. The
BKregation be la massing Is not, in
n sporting eenhe, a "bunch.of dubs"
but, on the contrary, a live snappy
team whtcb he ia sure would play
Hilo's representatives a very interest
ing series. ; -
Further, ' Serpen nt , Raymond soys
that they are not figuring on making
this a money-making proposition but
would like to have their expenses met.
The proposition haa been, referred to
President Charlie Oreen, of the Hilo
Lenguc, and be is warmly in favor of
having the cavalry boya make the trip
but no gunrantea as to expenses rnn
be made off-band. .
A reply to Hergeant ..Raymond 'a in
quiry is Wing made,' ia which the
amount required to meet -expenses it
being asked and it may be that ar
rangementa will be made to have the
team brought - along. Baseball has
been dend. in Hilo for some time" past
but that does not mean that .there is
no interest taken in tba game. - If the
amount requisite to par the expenses
of tbe visiting team, which ahould not
be very high, ia obtained by public
subscription the visit will undoubted
ly be mnde. . . ..
