The Japanese are celebrating just at
present one of their regular annual
festivals and the big, flapping, red fish
banners now displayed in front of go ,
many Japanese houses are an important
part of the festival. This is the cele
bration of manhood, and th3 fish, so
proudly displayed, is a sign to the
world that in that household the stork
has left a male child during the year
just past. In Hawaii the celebration
is only a subdued copy of the real
thing. Here none of the fish banners
are larger than about seven feet long
and many of them are little fellows,
as small in some instances as six inch
es. In Japan the croud father, if he
is wealthy, spreads to the breeze
banner a hundred feet long and cost

In March last the women had. their
festival, celebrating the births of
daughters by decorating their door lin
tels with paper flowers and perching
a gaily dressed doll among the blos
soms. But this celebration is a minor
one. What counts with the Japanese
is the arrival of a son and heir and
to him belongs the big fish totem, the
Japanese emblem for good luck.

the delegate of the Hawaiian society
to the National Convention but such
has not as yet come to hand. Although
we appointed a full delegation but one,
Compatriot Charles Montague Cooke,
was able to attend.

Sidney Miller Ballou, as registrar,
made the following report:
"I have the pleasure of reporting that
during the past year there has been
a larger increase in membership in
this society than in any pear since its
first organization. Twenty-nine mem

and while some of the more recent have
not yet been approved by the National
Society, yet for the greater part they
have joined upon the services of an

the approval of the National Society,

they will be admitted. Against this

The matter of appointing delegates to
attend the citizens' meeting called by
the Governor to arrange for a Fourth
of July celebration being before the
meeting, Judge Kingsbury said he con
fessed to being old fashioned, but to
his mind the only proper celebration of
the Fourth of July was by a public
gathering at some appropriate place,
where there should be the reading of
the Declaration of Independence, or
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address or some
other appropriate selection, and a pa
triotic oration. The afternoon should
be left to games and sports and the
evening to fireworks.
These sentiments seemed to meet the
approval of all those present.
The following were then selected to
attend the meeting called by the Gov
ernor for tomorrow morning: John Ef
finger, Judge Kingsbury, P. C. Jones,
General Edward Davis, Col. Sam Par
ker, J. S. Low, J. P. Cooke and Dr. C.
The officers of the past year were re
elected for the ensuing year John Ef
finger, president; L. A. Thurston, vice
president; Lyle A. Dickey, secretary;
George P. Cooke, treasurer; Sidney Mil
ler Ballou, registrar; and WT. R. Far-

President Effinger presented to Gen
eral Edward Davis, on behalf of the

THE WHOLE SECRET
of the success of the Automatic Tele
phone System lies in the elimination
of the girl operators. It cannot be
denied that most of the troubles and
much of the expense in the manual
system (where operators are used) can
be charged to the operators themselves.
all operators are not faulty all the time, but some off them are at all times and all of them
are sometimes. But "a chain is no stronger rhan its weakest link" and the average telephone
subscriber judges the entire service by the poorest he has received.
IN THE AUTOMATIC TELEPHONE SYSTEM,
the fallible human operator has been displaced by an infallible machine, a machine that pro
duces perfect. telephone services. With the human operator disappear her faults and Ivr
expense. The former are many, the latter not inconsiderable.
THAT IS WHY
the Automatic Telephone System, having no operators, can produce a perfect telephone ser
vice, prompt, accurate, absolutely secret, at a much lower cost than for inferior manual ser
vice. That is why. it is a profitable investment to put your money into an operating com
pany that uses the Automatic Telephone System, which is a financial success in a hundred
cities on the Mainland. . p
