In :i letter to the promotion com

A Misplaced Theory
'I have noticed liv the Honolulu
I u per that there has been a disposition
to object to continued encouragement
of tourist travel, on the ground that
if was unpatriotic, in r tint it inter
fered w ith the w ar.
"I do not ngree with this theory in
t lie remotest degree.
"Poring the past winter I was in
Florida for two month and I have
been in the Northwest lake section
for the pnsl two mouth.
"At von are aware, the two locali
ties mimed are among the leading tour
ict resort in the country.
"There hns been no diminution in
the advertising anil but little leening
of tourist travel.
Government Backing It
"Not only ia this o, but during thi
verv month the big dailies of this see
tion hnve been carrying numerous large
O'K in the names of railroads opera
ting neroa the continent, which are
now entirely under the control of the
I nited State Government, stating that
'1'iiclo Sum invite you to spend your
mention in his National Parks'; ac
remp.-inied by detnil deseriptiona of
the several pnrVs such us the Yellow
Stone. Ilia; ier I'ark, etc.
"Tin' mis also state that the Nation
al I'ark nuthoritie are seeking to atim
ul.ito travel to the parks.
"As von are aware, the National
Park organization is a bureau of the
department of the interior.
"Of in v own knowledge, through re
cent conference with the National I'ark
authorities at Washington, they are
B 1 1 hi; in accordance w ith the claims
of the said ads and are issuing litera
ture of the tegular promotion character
coiieei n i ng the parks.
"I cannot out mv hiiiid on one of
th.se semi official lids but inclose u few

being done by both individuals ami pro

" It take time to build up an nrgani

because of ! temporary difficulty sucl

"No one in Hawaii need, therefore
have any hesitation, from a patriotic
standpoint, in helping to Htmulutc t. ur

Fair To Ourselves
"It appears to me, from another
standpoint, thut it is actively patriotic
to stimulate tourist travel, from the
fact that so large a number of the p o
ole iu Hawaii derive a large portion of
their income from the tourist buaines.
If this business is broken up they will
have no surplus income with which to
issist the government in carrying on
the war and will even hnve difficulty iu

early in tho wsr there have been mini I
ber of Chinese with the French and
British armies in France not in the
lighting line, but in thst enormous army
of laborer which make it possible to
earrv on the war. Nearly a hundred
British in northern France, and more
than forty thousand wore are scattered
all over the country with the French
Now they are coming into the Ameri
can lines iu large number.
Most of these men come from North
em and Central China, and for the
same reason that many of our Amer
lean boys came to France befoie the
i'nited Htnfces entered the war. Some
of them were attracted by the high
pay and the chance to better their
own condition, some of them out of a
pure love of adventure, still other be
cause of their appreciation of what thi
straggle mean in their own future hi
And there are, too, not a few Chi
nese scholar and men of some distui
tion in their own country who have
been forced to leave for political res
sons, a well as young student from
Kngland or America. Thev are engag
ed in making ammunition, in tha con
strtiction of buildings, in paving road,
in loading and unloading ship and
tram in all the thousand and one
"w.tt Industrie" that have directly
and indirectly to do with the maintain
ing of the Allied armies in France.
Many Mlswnderstaadlngi
Mesely for the sake of efficiency, i
is of importance that a feeling of mu
tual understanding and sympathy
should exist between Sammy ana the
Chinaman who ha come to be his
neighbor. Official recognize its mili
tary value and have met with appre
ciation the effort of tho Y. M. C. A.,
which is carrying on the work In most
of the1 enmp were Chinese are located.
Tt was a big tsk that confronted
the few pioneer "T" ecretaries who
were fitted, through a knowledge of the
Chinese language, to undertake it, and
one desperately needed. So far as act
ual conditions went, the men were well
off. Tt ev were quartered in barracks ae-
commodating a hundred men each, they
were well paid and their food was pran
tlcally that provided for our own boys,
with concessions made to the peculiar
ities of Chinese taste or what American
quartermasters- believed to be Chinese
taste. But Imagine what It must be to
be a member of an army commanded by
officers not one word of whose language
you coub) understand and who, in vturn.
were unable to comprehend the slightest
thing you wished to tell them.
Most of the difhVultie were due to
this lack of understanding. For in
stance, a quiet, hard working Chinaman
hed some trouble with his eyes and
was ordered to the only place where he
could have protection from the light,
which happened to be the guard house,
no doubt Sammy tried to explain to him
on the way just w hy he was being sent
there, but bis efforts were not notice
ably successful. All that Ching China
man could comprehend, and all that his
friends could comprehend, was that he
was being abut up in the "Hei Wu
Tse" when he had committed no
offense'. Or, when the energetic dough-'
boy wanted to hasten along the deliber
ate coolie he would wave bis arms wild
ly in the alt and, with the idiotic in
stinct wc all ,have to believe that the
man who does not speak onr language
is herd of hearing, yell at the top of
his lungs.
Word ObJoet'ooaMe
"Come on, vou fellows, let's go."
I'nfortunMtely, however, "go" in
I Chinese mean dog, the laborers suppo
ed they were being "balled out for
some inexplicable reason, and there
might have been trouble had not a
"Y" secretary who had once heen a
missionary to China straightened things
out. it was. coolie and doughboy
went off together with grins on their
faces. Chinamen can appreciate u joke,
as well as Yankees, and a new word was
added to their vocabularies.
From the point of view of the Chin
ese themselves, the work is a most sutis
factory, as well as lucrative one. Al
though there are union; them men of
education who have had the advantages
of Knglish or American education as
well as all their own country could
give them, by far the majority are
illiterate. Not over ten percent of
them ran read and write the Chinese
language; the majority can not write
their owu name. As the' men quit
work at half past five in the afternoon
they have nothing to do until ten.
Generally they would speud their leis
ure hours in strolling about the villages.

Work of Education
There is. of course, large amount
Of educational work to tie done, which
i made as pleassnt snd as much like
plsy as possible. Ching must be taught
why he is in the war, and what the
part of the great laboring armies is.
He must have it explained to him what
are the advantages and the remsonablt
ness nf the army regulations, and why
he must be I iinorulated, which operation
he is inclined to look upon ns the marly
inations of a pnrtieular kind of Ameri
can evil spirit. And hi rharacteristiea
must be something like Sammy', after
all, for he ha the talk abont writing
to the home folk and about the necea

great need has been met in making it
possible for these men to send their

most of them who had been here from
