Peace On Barth.
AGAIN are we at the threshold of another year- Again has the
tvrinl rolled round when we are brought face to face with the
divine message which has been handed down through the centuries,
and which has retained all its effulgence and beauty-" "Peace on Earth,
Goodwill Towards Men.' This message seems to permeate the hearts of
Men at this time of year whether they wish it or hot. There seems al
wavs to be a feeling of brotherhood, among individuals and among
nations. As the years roll by the message of the divine master is sink
ing deeper into the hearts of men. The battle cry of Christianity seems
to be taking on a new significance. The great cause of universal peace
is marching on. Governments and Emperors, and Kings and Presidents
are discussing peace as the great practical policy of all nations.
The late King Edward died with the song of universal peace on his
lips. The new King George caught the refrain from the silent lips of
his ancestor, and gave it new volume. The martial Emperor of Ger
many returned home from the funeral pomp of the English King to
breath the .spirit of peace. The peace societies of America and Europe
are unfurling every banner that pulses the practical suggestion-of peace.
The spirit of universal peace is in the sentiments of thinkers, iq the
intelligence- of . nations, in the hearts of men. If the public opinion of
the great nations of the world can be directed to the leading of this great
movement, all other nations will follow swiftly and joyously, and we
shall see the consummation of the angels' greeting when Christ the child
was born nineteen hundred years ago.
The Hilo Herald is greatly alarmed at what it terms our bitter attack
on the present school system. It also accuses us of bringing a religious
fight into .the late election. This is about as near the truth as the
Herald ever gets to anything. The editor of the Maui News Aas been
influenced from the outside, as the Herald declares, but that influence is
nonn othfir than the manner in whicli the present Superintendent of
Public Instruction has flouted the expressed wish of the last Legislature
If the Herald can bring forth any reasonable excuse for Mr. Pope taking
the money which was voted for School teachers' salaries and applying it
to paying the salaries of his supervisors, against the expressed command of
the Legislature, while there is not money enough to supply teachers for
all the schools, then we will agree that the Hilo editor knows what he is
talking about. At present his utterance resemble the attempts of appll
parrott to imitate his master.
There seems to be considerable dissatisfaction among outgoing passen
gers, as to the charges being made by the physicians for certificates. Of
course it adds quite a little to the cost of a ticket, but on the other hand
it must be remembered that the physicians are giving up considerable of
their regular work, in order to accommodate those who of necessity must
have these certificates. In speaking of the matter, a local physician Bind
he would be glad if the Board of Health would send a special agent up
here to issue the certificates and thus relieve the local practitioners of all
responsibility in the matter. It is a disagreeable, task at best, and t,he
monetary gain at $2.50 per examination is not considered by the physi
cians as enough to offset the attending responsibility and unpleasantness
The Star of Bethlehem.
BACK toward Judea turn the battling hearts .
Of men in these the creed and canon days;
From' soaring spires and armaments to where
The Nazarene once walked the fretted sea ;
From gilded domes whose crass magnificence
Hides not the1 hovels in their shades to where
Tlfe Master lay that Galilean night
Beneath the stars; from velvet pews and gold
And silver glittering to where He said:
"To visit them that suffer and are sick
Is true religion, undefiled. Whoso
Shall rightly worship God must worship liim
In spirit and in truth."
The world doth tire
Of hollow show and sounding litanies
That echo from the bannered plains of War,
Of vestments crusted with the gems that mock
The starving bodies and the hearts of men.
It longs to hear the simple gospel: "Love
Ye one another. Whosoever gives
A cup of water to the least of these
Shall give it unto Me." World weary souls
Are turning from the bliisphemy of Pride,
And b;ick across the crimson centuries
They go, back over fields of hate and Htrife,
Back over pathways red with blood
And lighted with the fires of stakes and gleam
Of swords until at last they see the Star
Of Bethlehem and stand beside, a holy Child.
And there, beneath the sky where angels sang
For joy, the story of frwo thousand years
Is blotted out. Upon the new command
No bloody seal is set. "Goodwill to men
Aui peace on earth," the geMtlu ttfetsage runs.
The Kula pipe-line will be com
pleted about the 1st of the new
year. 1 he ten days of north storm
during the hist of November and
first of December shut off all work
and hence delayed the completion
of the water system. The' storm
was unusually severe. One day's
rainfall at the water-head in Wai
kamon gulch registered between
fifteen and sixteen inches and at
the Olinda end. seven inches. An
other day the rain gauge at Waika
moe allowed twelve inches and at
Olinda, four inches. Then the gov
eminent has been obliged to assume
the work of laying the pipe as Con
tractor A. II. Landgraf was unable
to complete the conditions specified
in the agreement. But now all the
work is well-nigh finished. The
next legislature will probably be
asked to appropriate an additional
sum of 135,000 to extend the line
two miles farther into the forest,
from Waikamoe gulch to Pohaka
moa gulch which has a much heav
ier flow of water than Waikamoe
Unless this is done it is now feared
than in case of a prolonged drought
the Waikamoe stream will not be
sufficient to supply the demand
of the Kula-Makawao people. If
appropriated, the total sum will
amount to $135,000 which is not
excessive for so important an enter
prise. . F. E. Harvey, the engineer
in charge, is now engaged in com
pleting the laying of the pipe into
Makawao so as to take advantage of
the last $1,000 of the original ap
propriation before the expiration of
the time-limit set by the legislature.
Since the advent of -diphtheria
into the' district the science of bac
teriology is held in more respect
than formerly by quite a number of
Makawao people especially among
the Portuguese residents. The first
case of the sickness was that of a
young child of Antone Vierra of
Kaluanui which resulted fatally. A
woman relation of the family who
had been caring for the sick child
took the gfnns of the disease into a
Makawao family where it caused
the death of the little daughter.
Attendants at the funeral of this
child carried the bacilli to Hania
kuapoko, Kula and Wailuku. From
Hamakuapoko. they were taken to
Paia. Not only can every case be
traced to the first one (that of the1
Vierra child,) but the names of the
people who scattered the disease can
be quoted. The deduction to be
drawn from the story of the spread
of this sickness in' Makawao is that
adults without being effected them
selves - can convey diphtheria to
children especially very young
children with whom they come into
direct contact It is also probably
true that the adults who carry the
disease must themselves have come
into direct contact with the victims
of it. .' . , ; ,
The Makawao telephone subscrib
ers will present a Christmas gift of
$33 to Miss Jennie Kalino, the po
pular telephone central of the dis
trict. Miss Kalino has been prompt,
patient and obliging in rendering
the duties of telephone operator and
merits this recognition of her ser
vices to Makawao residents.'
There are four cases of infantile
paralysis in Hana under the care of
Dr. Deas, and those afflicted by it
are all recovering.
Weather: Cool and delightful.
