lltlH V. Coke,
Does Mul The inonibers of the House from Ouliu ami Hawuii
Dictate? ought to combine to prevent Maui from dofealing
items in ilie appropriation bill from which their counties would
derive great and legitimate benefits.
To Oahu and Hawaii, it is of high concern, as the islands chielly
visited by tourists to keep the Promotion Committee in funds.
That Committee is beginning to show results; to hamper it now
might deprive Oahu and Hawaii, and incidentally the Territory, of
benefits worth many times the 25.000 which the Committee asks
for. The cut to $12,000 means $o00 a month for the biennial per
iod, which would just about pay salary and ot her office expenses of
the Promotion Committee, leaving nothing for the outside work
and special drives which tell in tourists.
It is amazing that Oahn and Hawaii representatives do not see
the Maui game and stand together for their own good and, through
them, for the general good of the Territory. It would not be half
so unfair to do so. an it would be unfair to the constituencies they
represent, not to do so.
And why should Maui twist the representatives of the other
islands around her linger? Are all the shrewd and smart men in
the Maui delegation? And are the. prejudices of a feudal hermits
to stop the movement which, in the end. may enrich the people of
Hawaii as it has the people of Southern California?
Oahu and Hawaii ought to compel the reconsideration of the
25,000 promotion item. Advertiser.
Does Honolulu at last realize that she has played the game cf
grab all to the limit and wishes now to make a fair division of
spoils between herself and Hawaii? Her greed for many years
has been of such a character that Hawaii was the first to kick and
it has been a great joke for the Honolulu members to refer to Hilo
as Kicker's villagu. Kauai was the second to see the game of the
metropolis but without the help of Maui she could do but little
against the combined efforts of the common enemy.
Now after Maui has seen her taxes go to building sewerage sys
tems and water works and a thousand other things that are of a
purely local character she has apparently joined the other two
islands in an effort to do justice to the whole Territory and we
glory in the good sense of the members not ouly of Maui but of
the other two islands, that have been the common prey of Honolulu.
Has Honolulu just discovered that she loves Hawaii? Does she
imagine for a moment that she can make even the most thick
skulled backwoodsman believe that she is actuated by a sense of
justice Hfter all the years of greed? We imagine not. Even the
school boys of Hawaii know that the Honolulu game is to get the
Territory to put up the funds for tourists and then every mother's
son in Honolulu does everything in his power to keep the tourists
from leaving the city limits.
The News believes the appropriation of liberal funds for promo
tion work could be made of great advantage to the entire Territory
but if the methods that have been in force for the past years are
to continue we see no reason why the other islands should pay the
bills. If Honolulu loses this groat revenue she has no one but her
self to blame for the loss.
The Honorable Gentlemen From reports from Honolulu it
Are Offended. seems that certain senators,
clothed with temporary authority and questionable honor have be
come offended at a just demand of the teachers of Maui.
The demand made by the teachers is that the Turrit ry fulfil its
part of a contract that was entered into by the Territory and its
teachers a contract that could be easily enforced in a court were
the parties thereto individuals. It is a just demand and one that
men of honor should heed. The teachers of the Territory were
employed at a certain fixed rate, to find later that the Territory
would not keep its part of the contract.
Even the Governor who ordered the cut did not defend his action
on the ground of justice but on the ground that the financial dilli
culties of the Territory made it necessary and promised that as
soon as the difficulties were passed the Territory would again ful
fil its part of the contract. These same over sensitive senators
with more dignity than common sense went on the stump and pro
mised the teachers the restoration of their salaries that jjstice and
the future welfare of the Territory demands only to treat with
scorn the plea of the noblest body of workers in the service of the
Territory. From the tone of the letters received from ul over the
Territory we do not hesitate to say the teachers are in earnest in
their demands and unless they are heeded some political caieers
will b9 cut short and a number of politicians will be relegated to
the shadows of oblivion.

It is the intention of the members
