He added that the services wer not n memorial but rather were hold t do honor to him and to realize th m lemlid example he gave, especially i the younger generation. He had 1 wonderful vision of mind. To the speal er, who hud read the life work of jB r. Dillingham in Honolulu, there wer three tliiug in his life which stood Ou clearly and distinctly. Kind, he came from New Englaai' There was something of that part o America which put its stamp upon it m'iin even to the third and fourth gn erutioiiH, leaving an indelible integrit of character and an unflinching tenSc ity or purpose, which, be felt enable him to hold on in undertakings whei other would have given up. Second, there was the element of th kiii, which ho often entered into th .

I means beneath all these things the gi! of imagination, that quality which i imbued with the assurance of faith. Challenged the Unknown That was symbolic of the life o It. F. Dillingham, he sold.

He was informed that The vdvertiser's Washington correspondent 1 ad tipped off tke secret to the people' ii xiawan. But he had nothing to say. "I can't ay anything about my trip to Porto tico or why I went," he said when :e learned that the trip was no secret lere. He added that the report of bis rip and what he had ascertained, both a Porto Hico and on the mainland, lust be first submitted to the directors t the Hawaii Sugar Planters' Associa ion. But Mr. Mead, who left for Porto tico about the time it was announced hat the federal government was con idering those islands as s source of ibor for the mainland, said labor is lentiful there. "Porto Rico," he:iid, 'has a population of 1,200,000 and is o larger and does not produce any ore than Hawaii " I Mead said that Porto Bico's draft uota had been placed at 12,000 men, ho were now being trained. To the question of whether there was ny legal obstacle, draft regulations, mmigration regulations or opposition in the part of the Porto Bican govern lent, Mr. Mead answered that he knew lone which would prevent Porto Kiciwi 'aborers being brought to these Islands He would not, however, give any in 'ormation as to how the planters danned to get ships to bring the labor ws here, probably the only unsettled iroblem involved in the prospective in 'anion of Porto Bican laborers, unless tome unknown objection arises here in lither the plan tens' association Or in organisations of the present plantation 'aborers.

As has been th case with former simi lar reports, it is made very plain that climate has less to do with the percent " of attendance than would general ly be thought. Thus the lead is taken by the Haualei district of Kauai, which is exceedingly wet, while some dis tricts winch hav a very much more dry cliinnte fall, far below in their at tendance record. As a matter of fact, the floures speak for themselves. They are as follows: Percentage Dintrict of Attendance Average for Territory . .. 95.38 Hllo Town ilfl.20 Hilo 94 .34 Puna 95 41 Kan 95.83 H.
