Kauai's Idea of Topic
"Civic nighteousness" Is the chief
topic of discussion for the Fourth
Civic Convention, to be held on Kauai
September 2G and 27. Rev. J. M. Lyd
gate, chairman of the program com
mittee which chose this theme, has
given his Ideas of what it means in
the following statement:
"There have of late, In these Islands
been some very disturbing revelations
of official corruption and inefficiency.
We hear complaints of the wide-spread
prevalence of vice and lawlessness,
scarcely concealed by the thinnest
veil of outward decency, and worst of
all perhaps, of an easy, almost Jocular,
indifference on the part of the general
public to this condition of affairs.
"These things, if so, cannot fail to
be of vital moment to us; we should
know the facts; ihould clearly recog
nize the situation and make some at
tempt to apply the remedy.
"In view of these things "Civic
Righteousness" has been .chosen for
the main theme of discussion at the
coming Civic Convention to be held in
Lihue September 26 and 27, with in
tent to diagnose the condition and sug
gest a remedy.
"One speaker will inquire into the
facts, and set them forth fairly and
impartially. Is there ground for alarm
or is It mostly newspaper talk, for
sensational effect? Is it all smoke, or
is there a considerable basis of file?
"A second speaker, accepting the
diagnosis of the first, will proceed to
J suggest a remedy, if one be needed.
He will probably do to along the lines
of experience elsewhere in dealing
with similar conditions, modifying the
remedy to suit our circumstances.
"A third speaker will emphasize the
need of a civic onscience, and will
trace home to the everyday man of
the street a large measure of respon
sibility for public dereliction, as the
result of public indifference. At the
same time he will doubtless empha
size the special responsibility of the
public servant to render such faithful
and conscientious service in his pub
lic capacity, as he would in any pri
"A fourth will present the obla
tion of an oath of office, the solemn
contract of honesty tnd efficiency, too
often lightly taken, and indifferently
treated, as a mere matter of form.
"Another will treat the relations of
civic efficiency to politics, showing
how a public servant Is sometimes,
apparently, more anxious to please his
voting constituency and retain their
favor, than he is to administer the
duties of his office without fear or fa
vor. "Still another speaker, perhaps, win
deal with publicity and civic efficiency,
indicating how a fearless and inde
pendent press may let the light into
shady corners, and do much to reform
civic corruption and inefficiency, by
simply showing it up as it is.
"In all this discussion we hope that
two main issues may be kept steadily
in view, viz: 'diagnosis' and 'remedy.'
That we may, know what's the matter
with us, and how to get relief.
Such a discussion turely cannot
fall to be both interesting and profit
able, and may be very spicy.

Many Bananas From
Hawaii Are Wanted
Manager Anderson Hopes Maui May
Be Able to Supply Some Would
Net Grower 70 Cents Bunch.
There Is a good demand in San
Francisco for Hawaiian bananas, and
if Maui growers can furnish any the
Hawaii Marketing Division will be
very glad to know about it. W. A.
Anderson, who is representing the
Division on the Coast has writen Prof.
Krauss, of Haiku, concerning the mat
ter, and Mr. Krauss will be glnd to
hear from anyone interested. Com
munications should be addressed to:
"Extension Division, Hawaii Experi
ment Station, Haiku, Maui."
In his letter Mr. Anderson says:
"I have a dealer here who Favs he
can handle up to 300 bunches of Chi
nese bananas per week and would like
very much to get Blueflelders. The
price on Hawaiian bananas is at pres
ent $1.2.r a bunch in San Francisco,
freight from the Islands. $.40 !fss a
rebate of $.10. This would net the
grower in Kahului about $.70 a bunch.
"If you could find any of the grow
ers at Makawao with good bananas,
bunches ranging around 40 pounds
each, and can get them to wrap the
bunches properly and shipped by the
Lurline and Manoa, we will be clad
to get them and they can be assured
of their returns, as this is a thorough
ly reliable firm, with whom we are
doing considerable business on pine
apples. The bananas can be shipped
through the Marketing Division, mark
ed W. A.. San Francisco.
"At present one firm is handling
most of the HawatiaiT bananas in San
Francisco. The firm I mentioned is
handling Mexican bananas and have
not bpen ab!e so far to get anv Ha
waiian bananas. I hope you will find
some one or any number of growers
who would like to ship under these
