' Now tl; lulu has ai; been ir.ade THE FEDERAL SITE. the quo-faun of the federal building site has been reopened, Hono ;,cr opportunity to live up to the reen:mendations that have jt a more beautiful city. The old arguments that were ad vanced in favor of the s-eWtiMti f the Irwin site are as good today as they were at first, and it is very probable that thy ca-n now be better appreciated and understood. The beauty of a city is one if its chief a?set s. First impressions are al ways strong and hard to eradicate. The visitor to a city who finds it uncouth, slouch- and ill-arranged gets a poor opinion of it, an opinion which he may never lose. Fine buildings scattered hit-or-miss throughout the city lose their impressiveness. especially when surrounded on all sids by nondescript types of architecture. If arranged with some view to order, according to some care fully thought out system, they produce an iniprt.-s.sion of stability that tends to make visitors want to stav and make their homes iu the city. My Ln-ar Boys: You want n;e to tell you something about Inmagritiou and the Labor question? I will gladly do so. The 4 'labor question'' las been a live isue, in Hawaii ever since the cultivation of sugar cane began. It never was more important than it is today. I'rinee Liholiho, at't r war is . Kamehameba IV., in an address to tbe Agricultural Society in spoke of cultivate small crops and fruits or cof fee, and raise enormous families of bright sturdy children the most desir able crop of all in a country like Ha waii. Without some artificial stimulus, the influx of white settlers promises to be exceedingly small. And yet permanent prosperity and the solution of the grav est political and soeial problems , that confront Hawaii depend upon just this sort of immigration. When white fami lies have once settled in the Islands e super. n- lon.ln tv? i.i thev belb-ve. Will t'Lit a ! different light upon the situation with in another weetv. Cap of the Marines. The adoption of a new cap bv th and have become acclimated, thev find Marine Corps is being given serious con sideration. There will practically be no difference in the appearance of the new cap, but it will Lave a softer crown and be more adjustable to the head. Any attempt to make a change in the appear ance of the Marine Corps cap would meet with violent opposition by the older officers of the corj.s. Marines are opportunities, especially in the field of j known the world over by the catty ap- of their i . :, much :s contributed The revival of coffee farming would th desirability ot securing laborers from the north of Europe.

Dur ing that time torpedoes were fired at appreciation of the fact. The 'apitol with its beautiful aivl spacious grounds, and the Judiciary building with its simple and handsome lines form a nucleus around which should cluster other imposing structures. Fortunately it has al ready been decided to erect the Carnegie library near the Capitol. To a disinterested observer the Irwin site would seem the natural location for the fine federal building that is to be erected. On that site the structure would not be hemmed in by squalid wooden shacks nor would the occupants of the buildings have -to look out upon a prospect of back yards, stables and other unsightly objects. The site is large enough to accommodate such a build ing as Honolulu needs, and the open spaces around would add greatly to the appearance of the structure. The site is centrally located only three short blocks from the corner of Fort and King streets. It is just far enough away to be out of the heat, dust and noise of the business section and yet so near that anyone who is downtown can walk to it in a very few minutes. It is even closer to the; heart of the city than are the Capitol and the Judiciary buildings, and no one ever complains of their being out of the way. The Mabuka site is entirely too small for the sized building that is needed, and it is evident that if the entire block is to be acquired, it will have to be through long, tiresome and cumbersome legal proceedings that may delay the construction of the building for years. If another site is to be chosen, it would certainly seem the part of wisdom to select a site that has the advantages that the Irwin site offers. town Portuguese that one meets in Ho- : to help build up the Territory, its com nohilu or Iiiio differ in no essential re- ' merce, its civilization, and its political from intelligent foreign-born c tt 1-: status toward Statehood. ing, and i: is said to constitute a record for continuous submergence.

Perhaps Mr. MoClel!an, the lone Democratic supervisor, expects to be re elected on tbe strength of the fact that it is he who is chiefly responsible for the asphyxiation of the building ordinance.
