"If 't Is wrong for the Hrewrry cor
poration to spend money to influence
legislation In its behalf, and I believe
it la." said L. L. McCandless in an
Interview, "it is also wrong for the
pugar planters to do the same thin?."
"As I see it there Is a principle at
stake. An Individual may spend his
own money as he pleases, so long as
he does not attempt bribery, or In
other ways overstep the law, he has a
right to use his own money to create
public senttment, or influence the
opinions of others for or against any
measure that he may deem fit. with
a corporation it i. different. Tbe use
of a corporation's money for political
purnor.es Is wrong.
"It does not matter that the direc
otrs may have authorized the mana
ger of a company to use company
funds in a legislative campaign, or to
create sentiment favorable to thi bu t
ness in which the company is engaged
unless that is done openly and above
board," McCandless said. "The man
ager would only be using his own per-
tonnl judgment and the directors
would only be exercising their person
al judgment, they might all be wrong
they might all be taking the wrong
view of the matter. The point I make
is that they are trustees of other peo
pie's money and they have no right to
use other people's money in that way.
Hawaii's Loss Maui's Gain
In the departure of Prof. Clowes
who goes to take charge of Lahaina
lune school, Hilo and vicinity suffer a
loss. Mr. Clowes is an enthusiast in
his work as an agricultural expert,
and in the experiment station at Glen
wood he has done splendid work. His
transfer to Lahaina is a striking ex
ample of the changed policy of the
Department of Education under Sup
erintendent Kinney. Under the old
system the Lahalna school has been
mostly a portion of a plantation, about
the only thing Its students did being
to raise sugar cane. Professor
Clowes will make it really a school of
diversified agriculture. Those who
have watched him in Hilo and know
his heart is In his work believe that
he will make a success of the new
policy. Hilo Tribune.
Note. Prof. Clowes comes as as
sistant to Principal MacDonald. Ed.
