TO THE EMPLOYER.
VOU have a duty to perforin to society, your neighbor and your
self. Perhaps you are performing some duties already, such
as serving on various boards, commissions or public bodies, to
which you give part of your time, and some little thought, and think
that you are doing enough for the community in which you live.
You are to be commended for anything you do for the
common weal, but if you are not including in your thought
and performance the interests of the great body of free
wage earners, you fall far short of doing your share in perpetuating
freedom of action in industrial affairs, which has been so menaced of
Society, united by a common bond of welfare adopts laws and rules
for its guidance, amongst others the right of the individual to labor
when and where and for whom he pleases. If, through your supine
ness, this right of the individual is menaced by and with the effort of
any organization, by a partial or total curtailment of such right, you
are to blame. Your neighbor may endeavor to maintain proper rela
tions between himself and his employes by fair treatment and right con
ditions surrounding the laborers under him; yet in spite of that may. be
forced to accede to the professional trouble breeder by reason of your
apathy and inclination to let tomorrow take care of itself.
There is no one question at the present moment that is so vital, and
calls for so much thought as our present industrial and economic con
ditions. Each one must help out by thought, resolution and action to
assist his neighbor in the right solution of this problem, thus assisting
society and preventing the disintegration of our form of government.
The person, who is actuated by envy and malice toward those who
have acquired, often by much self-denial, study and hardship, is men
tally unfitted to lead. The cheap politician, who always has his ears to
the ground, listening for the' loud-voiced maunderings of this chap, is
his natural ally. The business man, who thinks he must cater to the
demands of the walking delegate in branding his wares with a label of
allegiance, by. such action makes the effort required just that much
If the citizen, whether employer or employe, will not analyze and
reason out for himself, and act accordingly, relegating the envious, the
professional politician, and the thoughtless business men to their Nat
ural sphere of activity, then may we all fear for results, for in that case,
liberty in jeopardy will have to be regained by resorting to methods of

The public should cheerfully co-operate with the Chamber of Com
merce in their efforts to prevent the introduction of the fruit fly on
Maui. This is the only island in the group that has so far escaped, and
all the precautions which it :s possible to take will go for nothing, un
less the citizens generally take a personal interest in the matter, and see
to it that infected fruit does not get in. Everyone is vitally interested.
This is not a matter which interests the plantations, but the individual,
and it is the most deadly meuance to vegetation which has ever infested
these islands. Reports come from Honolulu that the fruit trees there
will soon be absolutely barren, and so far nothing has been found to
thoroughly exterminate the pest.
The Board of Supervisors will have a table set aside for" the newspa

doubt as to which member of the board belongs the credit for this in
novation, but as each member lays claim to it, we take this opportunity
to thank them all individually and collectively.

Where the Scarlet Pjppies of Passion Grow.
vBy Wil'. Salmi.)
'HK rounded face of a church clock loomed
Like a watchful eye in the curtained night.
Like a shifting scene the clouds passed c.i
And let in a flood of the pale moonlight.
And this, in the frame of my window small,
I saw as I tossed in the sleepless gloom;
Then I answered the call of the midnight's lure,
And, wrapped in a mantle, quit my room.
A liovering hand, unknown, unseen,
Reached out for my feverish finger-tips,
While close to my ear I felt the thrill
Of a whispered word from ghostly lips:
"You shall not sleep till your s6ul has known
"All that the Imps of Impulse know!
"Come to the Field of All Alone
"Where the scarlet poppies of passion grow!''
I went to the Field of All Alone,
By a waveless sea and a silent shore,
But a Memory kept me company.
And a single flower there I saw
Its heart was gold and its petals white,
'Twas a flower that only true loves know
All other blooms were lost to sight
Where the scarlet poppies of passion grow!

MR. CLARKE'S SOUVENIR BOOKS.
The artistic-souvenir books of Mr. Clarke, for sale in the theater,
contain representative photographs of the actor in a number of favorite
roles and a short sketch of his career as well.
Although one of the younger actors, there is probably no comedian
of today who has played a greater range of parts than Mr. Clarke, who
excels in useful comedy roles, in eccentric old men plays and in that
subtle union of comedy and pathos that only a few are born to adequ
ately portray. The excellent photographs give ample evidence of his
extraordinary versatility and his mastery of the art of makeup.
