UiJiiuit: My attention Having been drawn to your issue cf the 22 J ins:., re "Hawaii at Omaha," mav aK your muugence lor space in vour valuable paper to express a few thoug-hts bearing upon a matter which cannot Dut 'De regarded ot immense importance to our National interests at this time. The proper representa tion and exhibit from Hawaii at the Trans-Mississippi Exposition at Oma ha, in June, will mean much to this land that many love so well. All well-wishers of this country will concede that never in our history has Hawaii stood so prominently before the American people, or "before the world, as at the present time. Yet it may b-e justly ventured taat the mass es of the people of the interior and middle States of the great Republic know comparatively (little of this Isl and Republic or its people. At the coming Exposition is presented a splendid opportunity for Hawaii to make herself more fully known to the people with whom she is seeking closer relationship. Nor would any exhibit made, or information furnished, effect only the people of the middle States4 or of the United States. Canada and Olir new method Of d0in2f foreign countries will be represented and tourists from all countries will Qe in attendance. Hawaii will have an opportunity to stand side by side iwitlt the progressive Nations and demon strate her right to the respect and re cognition of all by a djsiplay of her products of the soil and a showing of the wonk of her educational institu tions. By making known the grand eur and beauties of her scenery and climate she can win the pleasure lov ing tourists to our shores. By declar ing our agricultural, industrial and commercial resources as affording lands and homes for the farmer and settiler induce more of the Anglo-Sax on, ueutonic and Scandinavian brawn and brain to come to our shores, settle in our beautiful valleys and cultivate our fertile slopes, and so offset, and equalize, the influx and agressive set tlement from the Orient. To those who have their all in Ha waii nei and have made this the iland cf their adoption, have their homes and families here, to sucih the future welfare of this country is a matter of great interest. Nor can we dismiss the possibility of having to stand be fore the world upon our own resources as an independent Nation. We need therefore to avail ourselves of every event to give out knowledge of our own imerits and value and to obtain the good opinion of the great nations of the earth, to attract capital and to start the flow of travel and settlement hitlierward. This brings me to note the appropri ation made iby the Senate of $3,500 td defray the expenses of the '"Hawai Exhiuit iProper" at Omaha. With all due difference to the judg ment of those who fixed upon tJaat sum, the writer, wno nas no axe to grind," but only an honest desire that what is done in this matter be done thoroughly, respectfully suggests that tfhe sum is inadequate to make tha dignified and proper display ibecomin and called for from Hawaii at the present time; and the following rea sons will support this view, a tew extra dollars expended now will be the best investiment the Government can make in this direction, and I believe would be more cheerfully endorsed by every intelligent tax-payer. First, tlet no mistake be made in the selection of the representative for this important post; for there never was a time more urgent when the welfare of Hawaii required that" the wisest choice be made when the commissioner from this young Republic should re present us to the world. Our appoin tee should be one who -has grown up and (been identified .with the country's frr-Ti-f Vi ond Im'iilrvnmDnt a m Q n ivVinco U IT Lli U11U UV-XVyJ 1-1-1 AJl LC 111 C4. U I IT 1 1 W VJ interests are identical with Hawaii; a thorough "kamaaina;" to such tha trust could be committed with full as surance of beneficial results. Let our wise Legislature, now in session, makes the appropriation ade quate, say set aside $10,000. AppoinS a capable and experienced commission er, the right man. can surely 'be found. Sudh, a man as the late Commissioner of Agriculture, Mr. Jos. iMarsden, or Mr. J. F. Brown, 'Mr. Allan Herbert, or a man of like stamp. Pay him well, as he would deserve. Then select with him some well qualified, educated as sistant of Hawaiian blood. Let them go to work immediately and gather products and data together. Out of the fund use a proper portion to have everything labelled and arranged in the most attractive and tasteful man ner, 'furnisili a full supply of pamph lets of information that can be ob tained, that they may be disposed of. Collect the samples of sugar, rice, coffee, taro, pia and fruits and have them put up in attractive and preservable forms. Drawr from the Board of Education for a fu'il exhibit of work from the schools. Let the Survey Department furnish its quota of maps and geographical in formation, our photographers and ar tists their best, efforts from camera and brush, depicting Island scenes and scenery. Call upon the museum and iprivate collections for their con tribution of articles of historic inter est such as could be readily handled and returned. Procure articles of Ha waiian skill and handicraft, if obtain ed in quantities, arrangements could be made to dispose of them. Let there" be a full collection of specimens of our beautiful native woods, an tae rough and polished state. Coffee should be secured of unques tionable quality and in sufficient quan tity to be dispensed to the public as the genuine product of Hawaii, and if the pure Kona and Puna be served its fragrant aroma will linger with the epicures and 'business men and a de- mand will be created which no other can satisfy. Canned fruits, preserves, jams, honey should all be obtained and could be sold to the credit of the manufactur ers at tJae close of the Exposition if not bought out and out from them. The above are simply hints along the line of what could be done under the direction of our active, experienced "kamaaina" who alone is qualified for such an important undertaking for not only should the commissioner be per sonally acquainted with the historical, agricultural, educational, political and commercial conditions which exist, bui he should have a knowledge of our laws and customs and be able to pre sent and represent to the enquiring thousands the true character of our Islands nation and its inducements as a land ready to welcome the tihriftv wage-earner and the honest heme seeker. Surely a matter of such -broad interests and vital importance calls for the most deliberate consideration. hat is done now should be done to the very best of the Nation's ability and the ablest, and best man for such an unuertajving oe secured, i-'or as a matter of national pride and a Gov ernment measure it sQould be shown of all appearance of individual specu lation.
