Thinks Special Homestead
Legislation is Needed
In preparing bills for the corning
legislature our new lawmakers should
give attention to the subject of relie
nieasuies for hon.esteaders in various
parts of the Territory. In the past
years homesteaders and homesteadin
have been unusually hard pressed,
and unless something is done, the Is
lands stand to get a very black eye
on account of it. We believe that th
situation is such as to justify drastic
and specific legislation of a charactc
helpful to the homesteader, and we be
lieve the public will stand behind sue
measures. Garden Island.
Postal Savings Banks
Get Boom By War
The war in Kurope Is proving a big
boon to postal savings In this coun
try. From the very day hostilities
opened across the seas postal-savings
receipts began to increase by leaps
and bounds and withdrawals fell off.
Thousands of people, largely of for
eign birth, accustomed to Bend their
savings abroad, are now patrons of
our postal-savings system, and enor
mous sums of actual cash have been
released for commercial uses among
our own people at a time when need
for every available dollar is pressing.
On July 1, when affairs were run
ning smoothly here and abroad there
was approximately $43,000,000 of pos
tal savings standing to )he credit of
about SS8.000 depositors. Since then
over $10,000,000 of deposits have been
added and the number of depositors
has increased enormously. The net
gain in the last three months is larger
than the gain for the entire fiscal year
191 1. A number of the very largest
banks in the country, which have
heretofore declined to qualify as de
positories lor postal-savings funds,
are now among the eager applicants

Bennett Now Commands
Capl. W. O. Rennet was In command
of tho Inter-Island steamer Claudine
hen that ferryboat arrived at Ka-
hului last Tuesday. That the erstwhile

that on the down trip of the Claudine
ast week, the mate had been in com
mand, and that he tendered his resig
nation shortly after reaching Hono
lulu. There was considerable specu
lation, however, as to who would get

as it is understood that Captain Ren-
nett's appointment is permanent. lie

Capt. Sachs being placed in command

tains and mates.

Married on August 14, reparated
on September 23, and divorced
on November 19, all in the
same year, Is the rapid-fire matrimon
ial adventure of Rhilomena Souza Ka
haleihol and Kapunl Kahalehol, of

corded In Wailuku, on Wednesday
night, and considerably more than
this amount fell at Kahulul during the

lightning. It was rather remarkable
in that it was largely confined to the
Kahulul and Puunene sections, the
rain being comparatively light east
The weather on the Lahalna side
during the week has been quite
stormy, though little rain fell. Heavy
ind but no damage was reported.
SYMPATHIZE WITH ROSECRANS
Friends of F. P. Rosecrans, the pop
ular manager of tho Paia Store, are
ympathizing with him in his present
sore affliction, due to the too close an
inspection of a job of Japanese lacquer
ing being done at his place of bus!
ness. Tho dope being applied by the
Japanese artisan, it seems, possesses
qualities closely in common with those
of poison oak or ivy to persons bus
ceptible. Those who have seen Mr.
Rosecrans have no doubt as to his
