S Nationalisation looms in -the British cotton tnduJstry. Thl Is the fifth dar of the lockout, and there has been no alg-n of the employers ana empioy mm -Mmfn. in an agreement. ' Two and a half mjlllon dollars are spent weekly on the operatives Jn the shape, of unemployment Insurance and poor-law relief. This money comes directly out of the taxpayers' pockets. ; But this loss tremendous national loss. Cotton ia GresJ Britain's chief export business.. i Since the stoppage all the British mills client have been compelled to place their orders Jn Bel-Blum, France and Germany. All these countries are extremely anx-. tous to keep permanently their temporary customers, and It Is reported that many foreign cotton Industrialists have accepted new orders on binding long term contracts. If the lockout In England continues It is extremely likely that many customers will be lost permanently, and the English cotton Industry win never be able to recover. Th arivarnmaht Is for the time being powerless. The cabinet has discussed ins situation iur ihn rlava axtenaivalv. and has hopes that the employers and op eratlves will come to an under 'standing soon. ..- ' If this doe, not happen. It u understood that Premier JUacDon i,t 4a falra draatlo meas . ures. He has already obtained the consent of his colleagues to ask ''the king to summon an extraordl-, nnrv short session, and after ex- nl.lnlnv in hnth hnUSS the Ser- lousness of the situation, he will demand power to take over ana op- erate the cotton mills until the employers and employee have come to an understanding. The cabinet is reluctant to take' such drastic socialistic measures, but H sees no-other way out. , , (Oopyrlrbt. 1988, for Tha TKIBPH8.) Radio Station Asked v By Monterey Airport . MONTEREY, Aug. 8.

Then you see only the beauty and charm of these play-tropics. So one boosts, and contributes free advertising to the Hawaii tourist bureau. Fortunately, boostinir for Hawaii Is boosting for California, too. Whatever visitors vie lure of Hawaii may help attract it draws thorn through California. In the tourist business at least, we are 'partners. O O & FORTUNATELY, ulso, Hawaii Is, like California, both a summer and a winter resort. Not that you can start any aloguti, "It is cool In Hawaii." It Isn't, That, in summer, is a monopoly of the California coast. Hawaii, at this season, is warm, but not too warm for enjoyment. And it is becoming the "smart" thing to visit Hawaii, summer as well as winter. A few years a.Ko the summer list consisted mostly of CallCornians, who came because it was near. Now the passenger list of the Malolo this trip consisted mostly of Easterners. Hal las, Texas, and ' New York City were next In number to home-coming Honolulans. O 0 J TO the common question, "When Is the best timo to visit Ha-- me iiimwer is vvnen ever jou can. it depends, too, on what you want. If it is contrast with the frozen east, the best time of course, for both California and Hawaii is whenever the east is worst. That, fortunately is also the time when Hawaii is clirmiti. cally most perfect. Hut if it is to see the real beauty of Hawaii, the summer time Is better. If it is for sports, for aolf. for ewlmmlnir unH surfing, fishing and yachting, everytlme is best. JUST now, Honolulu is gorgeous with bloom. The principal nowers of tne tropics, be t remembered, grow in trees, rather than in bushes and herbs. The ponciana regla Is a great mass of scarlet; the yellow spikes of the monkey -pod anil the long panicles of the goldon shower are at their best; the hibiscus hedges, which bloom all the year, are now a mass of blossoms; the hau tree, their glant'cousln, Is in bloom; the pink and white ehower and the rainbow shower give variety to the blooming trees, and you can Bee half a mile of high-blooming cereus break into 20,000 blossoms In one night. All the conseryotorles of Europe and America could scarcely show that number in a lifetime. a o a 'HERB may soon be roses in Honolulu again. There are roses on some of the other Islands, notably at Hllo, but on 1 H" ' 'HIS- Is written the first dayoff6ahu they have been destroyed by the rose bud beetle. Now they are importing other parasites to destroy the beetle. If that Is effective, the roses will bloom In Hono lulu gardens. They are also, Incl aeniany, experimenting with- a cannibal mosquito, which destroys tne larvae of other mosquitoes and does not itself bite men. WAII has learned caution In tnportlng strange creatures. I'he mynah bird, imported to comoat certain pests lr, tne cane fields, has displaced mure useful and attractive nntlve bird;.. The mongoose, imported to fight rats kills chickens and destroys birds and bird-eggs Instead. The lantana set out as a garden plant, escaped Into the fields and became an almost uncontrollable weed, until a parasite was found which attacked its seeds. In this genial climate, the wrong thing grows too fast, O 0 O UNFORTUNATELY, no effective enemy has been found for the Mediterranean fruit fly. The fly, happily, does not Infest pineapples or bananas, the Islands' chief fruit exports. But It makes Impossible the export of alligator pears, mangoes or papal, all of which would be profitable, an dit prevents the development of a citrus industry, which,, In some places, like the middle slopes of Maul, might otherwise be feasible. 0 0 0 '"PWENTJr-TWO banks, V.ie wire I less reports, with deposits of SSS.OOO.OOO, have closed in Florida since the Mediterranean fly quarantine. It is a high price to pay, but the price of not taking these summary measures would have been higher. If the pest can be confined to a email district in Florida, and finally eliminated there, it will be worth Vvhatever It costs. To allow1 It to spread over the country generally would amount to staggering billions. 0 0 0 JV YOU want to know the natural color of the white race, come down to Waiklki beach. There you will see the human Integument, In its most expansive display, and the color Is a bright brovn. The ordinary tinge of a blonde young lady who has been here as much as two weeks-Is exactly the same as that of an Indoor native Hawaiian. The "beach boys," themselves exposed to the sun all day, are of course darker. Hut it is clothes and walls and roofs that make the white man wnite. The white woman, out for a inn, discards both. And the vertical sun, once a thing to be avoided, is now a 'thing of health ana neauty. As to the costumes inst winter s mode has already left off nearly everything. This sum mers fashion has eliminated most of the little that was left.
