OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
The Oahu electors who put the
, "Honorable" D. M. Kunlhea In as a
representative, must feel very proud
of their efforts In his behalf at the
polls. The other representatives who
sit with the "Honorable" gentleman
when makinR and un-niakinn the laws
of the territory, must feel the dignity
of their positions. They should, at
leas;t, take some steps to either re
move themselves or the "Honorable"
Kupihea from the House of Repre
sentatives. It should be impossible
for any man with a sense of decency
to associate with the "Honorable" Ku
pihea. Hawaii Herald.
The Larger Poll Tax. ,
Governor Pinkham's recommenda
tion of an increased poll tax is one
suggested a monlh ago in these col
umns. In the following paragraphs of
his message he gives unanswerable
arguments in favor of such a policy:
"We are extraordinarily generous to
Ihe Asiatic, for we collect in taxes
$324,183.84 from the Japanese .ind
Chinese and return them $402,9(17.56
In the form of education alone;-from
the Hawallans, $206,409.12, and return
$193,605.72 in the form of education;
and collect from the Latin races $90,
593.42 and return $181,127.76 In the
form of education alone.
"Logically the Asiatic and Latins
are not holding up their share of the
cost of the advantages they enjoy.
"It se-ms to me when they under
stand the fact they constitute sixty
four (64) per cent of the curse of
tuberculosis, they will not object to
the additional proposed poll tcx. Other
nationalities I feel sure will not.
"We publicly expend in educating
the Oriental more than twice the am
ount of money he pays in taxes. The
Hawaiian does not receive in educa
tion the full amount of the taxes paid
by him." Hilo Tribune.

FARMING AND FARM PROGRESS
Things Being Done and Attempted' in the Agricultural Field.
Poultry and Eggs Advancing.
The Marketing Division reports the
demand for poultry, particularly broil
ers, exceptionally good durin the
past week, due no doubt to the car
nival. Biggs have also advanced a
few cents, due to Increased demand.
Papaias and Oranges In Demand.
Papaias are very scarce and prices
good, says the Marketing Division.
The division can use several hundred
pounds a day if the supply is regular.
Island oranges are also scarce.
Family Garden vs High Cost of Living.
With a view of demonstrating what
can be done by almost any family tow
ards keeping down the high cost of
living, F. G. Krau.ss, superintendent
of the federal experiment station's ex
tension work, has laid cut a small
plot of land at Kuiaha which will be
developed as a "family garden." Mr.
Krauss slates that anyone with a few
square rods of land should be able
to supply the family table with an
abundance of delicious fresh vege
tables at all seasons of the year. The
details of this experiment will be the
subject matter for a bulletin to be is
Outlook For Bean Crop.
The so-called Kula red bean seems
best adapted to conditions on this Is
land ,and BhoufU be profitable to
growers this season. Last year the
price in Honolulu was pretty unifoi in
ly 4 cents a pound. According to re
ports from the mainland speculators
have been buying up beans of all
kinds anticipating very high prices
which the growing shortage of food
stuffs in Europe will cause. This
would seem to warrant the belief that
prices for Island beans should not be
less than they have been in the past.

The Futility of Fireworks.
Fireworks are all right in countries
where "artificial sunshine" comes as
a boon and a blessing, and where pyro
technical brightness gratefully Illum
ines the gloom of a long, dreary win
ter. In Hawaii, 'and of the rainbow,
and home of earth's most wonderful
Funrises and sunsets; land of diamond
dawns and golden-fruited skies, fire
works are nothing but a waste of mon
ey and an affront. Thousands of dol
lars will be taken out of the country
by the purveyors of the Carnival pyro
technics. Could not this money have
been spent to much better advantage?
Are fireworks in Hawaii, even though
they be of superlative quality, quite
worth while? Tropic Topics.
Kauai Taking Notes.
Hilo may open a "promotion" of
fice of her own in Honolulu, keeping
a man there for the purpose of meet
ing and steering tourists Hawaii-ward.
It occurs to us that that is a good
move for the big island. The tourist
business is a considerable item in cal
culations over there, and the only cer
tain way to get that business is to go
after it. Maui is just now doing some
serious thinking alons the same lines,
and if the Haleakala road were nearer
in Fight, would probably undertake a
similar work. Kauai has thus far not
had sufficient experience with the
tourist business to know what It is
like, but Is in a position to "be shown"
both as to the desirability of the busi
ness oy wholesale and the wisdom of
spending money for it. Garden Island.
Honolulu buyers at about 3 cents f.
o. b. Kahului for all they can secure.
According to estimates, the Kula
red bean should produce under favor
able conditions, from 2000 to 3000
pounds per acre. The cost of produc
tion should be about $50 per acre, in
cluding cost of bags and freight to Ka
hului, which at 3'6 cents would net
the grower between $20 and $50 per
acre. Inasmuch as beans are produc
ed in about three months, this is con
sidered a satisfactory profit. Besides
the bean tops are worth for stock
feed perhaps $10 per acre, and the
soil is Improved for other crops by
this legume culture.
Make Your Chickens Work.
Next to clean quarters probably the
most Important thing In getting satis
factory returns from chickens is a
scratching pen. This is very often en
tirely overlooked here in the Islands.
For a small Hock, an enclosed space
10 by 20 feet square will do. Boards
set on edge to the height of at least
2 feet should enclose the space in
order to prevent the litter from being
scattered. Rice straw Is probably the
most satisfactory scratching material
that can be obtained in the islands
as it is light and does not pack into
a heavy mat. Grass, leaves, or shav
ings answer fairly well. A foot and a
half of loose straw is not too much and
all the grain the chickens receive
should be scattered in this litter. The
litter will not be satisfactory if it be
comes wet. Hens will work Indus
triously in this litter all day long, and
the results of this exercise in increas
ed egg yield will be observable almost
at once, if other conditions anywhere
near right. Flocks that are confined
of course respond most markedly to
the scratching pen stimulus, though
wte.lhave found that it pays even
where the fowls have open range.

undesirable location upon the govern

strong effort is taken to prevent it.

to whether or not to interfere in the

Approve Haley's Appointment.
The appointment and confirmation
of John F. Haley to succeed Charles
A. Cottnll as internal revenue col

political reasons, but this was derided
against. Mr. Haley has for a number
Lent and Its Purpose
Rev. J. Charles Villiers.
The observance of Lent, if not
strictly of Apostolic origin, has held
a place in the life of the Church from
very early time, and, certainly, the
Ideas and ideals which the Church
associates with the Lenten season had
a central place in the teachings of
Jesus Christ. Some people, and not
a few, seem to think that the Church
puts her emphasis in Lent wholly, or
nearly so, on fasting, and on fasting,
not as a means to an end, but as an
end in itself. In this they are niis-
It is not the idea or aim of the
Church to promote the spiritual life
of her communicants -through ex-
remes of physical mortification, but
by a season of wise restraint, not ouly
in the matter of foods, but in the
matter, also, of pleasures and amuse
ments, to recall to the memory of her
children and to revivify therein, the
great truth that it were no profit to
man if he should gain the whole! world
and lose his own soul. The Church's
purpose In observing Lent i3. thereby,
to teach and emphasize a truth which
ommunicar.ts of the Church, aa well
as others, hot Church communicants,
,ire very likely, to fo-.-get, in these
days when the temptation of life is to
fail to put "first things first." Life's
ruest interests a,-e heft p'niotcd,
not by the things of pleasure and pas
time, but by those things which de
mand of us sacrifice and service in
the name and spirit of Christ.
Some years ago a son of the writer,
who had noticed his father's occa
sional lapses of memory, said to him
n words of child-mind coinage, "li-
ther, you have a good "forgetter." If
ever, in the uiBtory of the Church,
there was need of the observance of
Lent, surely, there is such a need to

great truths that belong to the life
that is life, indeed. The world in
which we live, with its atmosphere of
materialism, pleasure and amusement.
tends to religious neglect, moral and
