OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
Midget Out With Roast.
WeTiave the proceedings of Ihe last
Civic Convention, at Wailuku. The
printing is flno, but if the importing
is all like that on one address for
which we are responsible, the less said
the soonest mended. If we are guilty
of uttering the utterances which the
official stenographer has charged us
with, we should be taken out against
the wall and shot ; if we did not speak
the sentences alleged, then the alle
gator should have ills skin punctured.
'e ask our readers to read our speech
as printed in The Midget of issue fol
lowing the Convention, before they
condemn us. Kohala "Midget.
Some day Hawaii may have lines
of real "fruit" steamers steaming into
Honolulu and Hilo harbors. Then will
the shipment of bananas, pineapples
and other fruits begin In earnest.
From Suva and other Fijian ports
there are shipped hundreds of thou
sands bunches of bananas each month
to New Zealand and Australia. That
was made possible by adapting steam
ers so that the fruit could be con
veyed a couple of thousand miles with
out becoming overripe. Some day
Hawaii may do the same thing and
then the fruit industry will boom.
"Who's to blame when the chair
man of the board of supervisors and
a preacher get pinched for speeding?"
asks an island exchange. We hazard
the guess that it Is the gasoline speed
bug. Hilo Tribune.
The people of Maui seem determined
to have Kihei made the port of call
for Inter-Island steamers on this is
land, and, although through having
McGregor's Landing cut out, there
would seem to be every probability of
people having to travel to Lahaina in
order to catch a steamer, that state
of affairs must, of course, be altered
in the near future. To call upon
travelers to journey to Lahaina from
Makawao, Paia, Kahului or Wailuku,
and then find that, through bad
weather, the steamers could not stop
at Lahaina, is a tritle too much for
the citizens of the Valley Island. They
worked hard for years to have the Ki
hei wharf added to and repaired, so
that steamers could call there and
then, when this was all accomplished,
the announcement was made that ten
thousand dollars would be expended
on McGregor's Landing and that the
Kihei wharf would not be used.
Maui has a real port at Kahului,
and it is the only one in the Islands,
outside of Honolulu and Hilo, where
a steamer can dock alongside a wharf.
But that port and wharf are of little
use to people who wish to travel on a
good steamer to Honolulu. The Mau
na Kea does not go anywhere near
Kahului and most) o the peoplo who
travel to and fro between Honolulu
and Maui want to patronize the best
The people of Maui have worked
hard to secure the touching of steam
ers at Kihei and, if as stated, the en
trance to the big bay is not properly
lighted and that there is a shoal di
rectly in front of the wharf, those
matters should be attended to at once,
or else another site for a wharf should
be secured. Tourist travel to Maui
is increasing and, besides that, the
people of Central Maul should be con
sidered and not asked to travel any
thing from twenty-two to forty miles
to catch a steamer at Lahaina. Ha
tance. If the coastwise shipping laws
were made non-applicable to Hawaii,
we should have large carrying Inter
ests vying with one another in bid
ding for the business of transporting
not only passengers, but Island pro
ducts, and the result would be the sti
mulation of all sorts of industry here.
The United States Congress has not
been fair to this Territory. While it
has reaped a golden harvest from its
' custom houses here, It shackled our
development by restricting our labor
supply. It debauched and destroyed
the natives, both by changing the re
quirements of the franchise so that
it should no longer encourage thrift
and by opening the floodgates of al
cohol. It throttled our growth by pre
venting free travel and necessitating
' high freight rates. Of course, we who
live here must expect capital invested
in the protected shipping lines to howl
when the demand for freedom of Inter
course between Hawaii and the main
land becomes so acute that silence is
npossible. But for the sake of the
future of the Territory and for our
growing population, every freedom-
loving citizen ought to join loudly in
the appeal for Justice and liberty.

Good Cane Crop Profit
- Approximately $9000 was received
by the department of public Instruc
tion last week, the financial fruit of
the Lahainaluna school's cane crop.
The school, an industrial institution
wCere about 135 boys are -taught agri
culture and manual training, had thirty-five
acres In cane, which was tend
ed by the students.
The Pioneer Mill Company harvest
ed the cane and paid the customary
rate, according to tonnage, sucrose
content and the market price of sugar.
The department realized $3000 more
than it had expected. This was due
to the higher price of sugar resulting
from the war.
The institution is not self-supporting
yet however, as the biennial appropria
tion set aside for it by the legislature
Is $50,000. Advertiser.

A Military Conception.
One of Ihe pet conceptions of mili
tarists has always been the Idea that
there must be no social intercourse
on an equal basis between the en
listed men and the commissioned offi
cers of the army. If it was expected
to maintain discipline. And still, in
a current magazine, a British writer
makes the statement that the French
army is the most democratic of all
armies: yet he cannot help but express
his admiration for the efficiency of
the French fighting forces.
This Britsh writer poorly conceals
his amazement that it is possible to
have good discipline when friendly,
human intermingling Is common be
tween the eoldiers and their offirors.
He tells how in the party which es
corted him to the wf;t front there
wat a high Btatf officer, another offi
cer, a sergeant and a corporal. "Dur
ing the expedition we all shared the
same mess," he writes. Used to the
"side" of the oflicers of bis own coun
try, and himself, evidently a believer
in the necessity of social distinction
between the ranks and the commis
sioned oflicers, he tries to explain how
such a thing were possible by telling
who the non-commissioned o?icers are
in civil life.
The explanation is not convincing.
We incline to the belief that the
French commanders have learned that
a precept in civil life, which holds no
man is a good executive who does not
cultivate the acquaintance of the men
under him, can be applied with good
effect to the army. The result is the
French army is surprising the world
with its fearless and uncomplaining
stand against an Invader with super
ior numbers and equipment.
Some day it may be generally real
ized that the present snobbish social
chasm between the enlisted man and
the officers is a detriment and not an
aid to fighting efficiency, and that it
is founded only upon a misconception.
Then the commissioned officers, with
their superior training for their du
ties, will actually be the commanders
and not theoretically as ' now, for, as
an army saying puts it, "the top ser
geant is really the company command
er." Hilo Tribune.
That a single line of ships, with the
support of the few capitalists who own
stock therein, should be able to de
feat a great reform is typical of our
age. Years ago the unjust, indefens
ible and intolerable restrictions upon
liberty of travel imposed by accident
upon Hawaii and maintained simply
because the Territory has no voice
in Congress were about to be, not
abolished, but somewhat mitigated,
when a tiny coterie of those financially
interested by a coterie of those finan
cially Interested here by a ruse pre
vented the Federal Senate from doing
a part of its duty by the people of
these Islands. There is no honorable
reason why persons desiring to enter
or leave Hawaii should not be free to
do so, using any conveyance at hand.
If Americans cannot afford to do the
carrying, let those who can make the
business pay do it. Two hundred
thousand people ought not to be mar
ooned at sea 2000 miles from the main
land in order to enrich a mere hand
ful of business men. No great Amer
ican industry, is at stake in this ins----)--
Protection For The Children.
Now that the schools of Kauai have
entered upon the autumn term, we
hope, some attention will be given to
the matter of providing lockers in
which may be kept changes of cloth
ing for children arriving from a dis
tance on wet mornings.
Most of the pupils of Kauai walk to
school, many of them from quite a dis
tance. During the rainy season (which
happens to be more than half of the
school year) they arrive there with
their clothing damp, or even soaked,
and not having the facilities for chang
ing, sit in their wet garments for
hours, contracting colds and laying the
foundation for more serious disease
Wtih suitable lockers provided in
the school buildings, the children
could keep changes of clothing there
and the problem of changing wet
clothes for dry garments would be a
mere matter of school routine on rainy
We are pleased to hear that a few
of the schools have done something
along this line on their own initiative;
but we would like to see it taken up
generally and systematically through
out the island. And right now is the
time to start in. We can expect only
a few weeks more of fairly, dry weath
er, and then will come the rains which
continue throughout the winter mon
ths. Let preparation bo made in ad
vance for the wet season. Garden Is

And Pears at Olinda
The slopes of Haleakala need not all
be waste land, for perfectly good
peaches and pears can be grown there.
Secretary Taylor of the Hawaii Pro
motion Committee can testify to this
as yesterday he received a box of
peaches and pears fnftn W. O. Aiken
of Paia, Maui, a member of the com
mittee, and while they are for exhibi
tion purposes, some will never see the
windows of the promotion committee

Can't Tell Why F4 Was -Lost.
The real cause of the loss of the
submarine F4, off Honolulu harbor on
March 25, will probably never be defi
nitely known. While, refusing to go
into details as to the findings of the
board of inquiry, Bear Admiral C. J.
Bousch, chairman of the board, stated
this week that they have secured all
available data from the wrecked craft,
but still are unable to tell why the
little vessel failed to come up on her
last fatal run. The general belief 1s
that a leak in the hull permitted sea
water to find its way into the storage
battery cells, resulting in the genera
tion of chlorine gas, which asphyxiat
ed the crew.

New Buildings Planned for Capitol
Plans for improvements to the capi-
tol grounds in Honolulu, calling for
an expenditure of from $125,000 to
$150,000 have been made by Charles K.
Forbes, superintendent of public
works, and will be sent to the terri
torial legislature when it next meets,
accompanied by a request for an ap
propriation of this amount of money.
The plans provide for concrete
buildings, two in number, on the Ewa
side of the grounds. One of these
will be two stories in height, and will
lie just mauka of the road which runs
In from Richards street. The other,
a three-story building, will be erected
across the mauka side of the first.
The first building will be used bb a
place for meetings of various territo
rial boards, the second will house the
department of public works.
Will Build Trail Up Mauna Loa.
Up to the present time the sum of

Hilo railroad, is the authority for the
good news, and he says that he will
