THE MAUI NliVVS, FRIDAY, UCl'OUliK 21, 1915.
OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
Miss Charlotte L. Turner lias Just
laid down her work In Wailuku after
thirty-four years of unlinking devo
tion, ine story of this long service
cannot adequately bo told. Dining all
mis interval Bne has been the ner-
sonal friend of large numiier or Chin
ese men and women for vhose wel
fare she ha3 spent, herself unreserved
ly. With the advent of the Japanese
she opened her heart and life to take
them In and has wrought anions them
with exceeding faithfulness. Her long
experience l'as given her great wis
dom and we are glad to report that
she will not be lost to Muni, where
she will coutinuo to live as emeritus
missionary, giving tne benefit ol what
her scrvicis hay taught her to the new
workers who are manning the field.
We believe Bhe will wield eter en
larging Influence and are happy that
her health Is no food that she will
be able to eonti Unite in many Im
portant ways to the work which she
so much loves. The Friend.
Col. Samuel Johnson Is In a class
by himself when it comes to stirring
up enthusiasm for the national guard.
He's a whole recruiting campaign.
The challenge, or invitation, which
ever way it be taken, contained in
Chairman Kauhane's proposition that
the Broad of Trade visit the county
oflices and verify his claim that the
County of Hawaii has the best gov
ernment system of all the county sys
tems, is worth taking up. It cannot
in fairness be ignored. It is a fact
that some business men of undoubted
capacity are of the opinion that Kau
hane is right. Either this is so, or
it Is not. Isn't it about time for Ha
waii county to quit knocking Itself,
if Kauhane's challenge is anything
like made good? Our county is prob
ably doing a little better, on straight
business propositions, than any of the
counties, unless it be Kauai, which
has so much money in proportion to
its needs that it can hardly get into
any difficulty and which is under such
scientific and easy baronial manage
ment that it need not he considered
as an experiment in self government,
which is just what the 'Mg. sometimes
lumbering. County of Hawaii is. U:Io
Why on earth is there such a howl
went up in Honolulu about a few Chi
nese who would rather gamble than
eat, playing a game of che fa? The
Celestials are born wooers of chance
and what on earth harm are they do
ing when they gather for a little quiet
game among themselves? How many
haoles are there who should be pinch
ed under the same circumstances, but
are not? The cry to the effect that
young clerks are led astray and caused
to become embezzlers by the che-fa
games is too far fetched. The stock
exchange has, according to reports,
caused more young fellows' downfall
than any other gambling institution.
No more salutary thing has been
done in Hawaii in years than Gov
ernor Plnkham's pardon of Richard
It is not that a penniless and friend
less Filipino is the object of execu
tive clemency; it is not that for one
individual the justice of the court has
been tempered by the mercy of the
capitol. It is that with a stroke of
the pen the governor has centered
the already blazing light of public
opinion upon a judicial act which he
terms "discrimination among classes,"
and has rebuked that discrimination.
Anything less than a full pardon for
Ramos would have failed of the need
ful effect. Ramos may not have de
served immediate freedom. But the
governor's action voiced not the de
mands of public conscience in the Ra
mos case it voiced the demands of
public conscience in the shocking in
cident made up of the Hoogs, Abrams
and Ramos cases. And it voiced these
demands of public conscience in tones
that now cannot possibly be mistaken.
On the Other Islands
Murders Wife and Slays Self.
Ella Long, aged 20, and a nephew
of E. A. C. Long, Jack Long, and An
tonlo Long, Killed his youn;? wife by
stabbing her in the throat, wounded
his uncle. Antonio, and then drove
the knife. Into big own body, dying
a few hours later. The tragedy oc
curred in upper Manoa Valley, Ho
nolulu, about 10 o'clock last Friday
night. It followed a drunken carou
sal. Long has a bad reputation. He
and his wife had quarreled violently
just preceding the stabbing.
Three Murderers Pay Penalty.
Three Filipinos, who brutally mur
dered several members of a Japanese
family on Kauai some months ago,
and almost succeeded in murdering
several others when they set fire to
the house after committing their
dastardly assault, were hanged at the
Territorial penitentiary last Friday.
They were Feliclano Hlrano, Juan
Coronel, and Ponciano Colaste.
Edgar A. Brooks of Peoria, 111., will
be the new manager of the Associated
Charities of Hawaii succeeding Miss
Margaret Bergen, who was sent here
by the New York Society. He will
arrive the latter part of November.
That Hon Sanford B. Dole, the vet
eran judge of the local United States
court, will retire upon the expiration
of his term next month, and that he
will be replaced by Horace W. Vaugh-
Something Like It.
With the Great Northern on the
run to take care of the immediate pas
senger necessities and hold what tour
ist trade we have, and a new liner of
the Matsonia class to be built for the
Increase certain to be, Honolulu will
be substantially looked after. It is
good news for Hawaii that Captain
Matson, has evidenced his determina
tion to add yet another modern steam
er to his fleet, and news such as Ha
waii expected to hear from and of
Captain Matson. The recent announ
cements made in his name that he
would abandon the Hawaiian trade if
the residents here undertook to voice
their just and reasonable ideas con
cerning the Inequalities of the coast
wise shipping laws were not the ex
pressions looked for from the man
we have long known Captain Matson
to be. Advertiser.
On Being Too Optimistic.
In an article on page 6 of this issue
a well-known writer discusses in a
very interesting way the subject of
over-optimism in community affairs
and points out that optimism is some
times and under some circumstances
as hurtful as pessimism. The point
Is well taken.
The "kicker" is not a desirable as
set to a community. But, mind you,
what is a "kicker?" When you come
right down to it, the species that
may be properly designated as "kick
ers" are comparatively small in num
ber. " Because a man (or woman
either, for the matter of that) finds
fault and complains we call him a
"kicker," or a "crank." But is he?
We respectfully submit that he may
not be, and, on the other hand, by
his "kicking," so called, may accom
plish more of genuine good in the
community than a dozen of thosTe
very excellent, smilling and over-optimistic
gentlemen who carry their
heads in heaven's blue and take no
notice of the injustice and iniaultv
around them as they pass through
Even the pessimists admit that we
have on Kauai a reasonably well-ordered
citizenship, a reasonably good
county government, reasonably good
schools and churches, reasonably good
public conveniences and that every
body is reasonably prosperous and
reasonably happy. But our danger
lies in that very feeling of satisfac
tion with ourselves. There is, in the
very nature of things, too much to
guide us toward a dangerous degree
We need "kickers." We need peo
ple to find the faults in our system
of government, our schools, our pub
lic works and even in our churches
and newspapers; and to point them
out to us. Criticism should, however,
be of a constructive character. It is
useless to harp on things that can
not be bettered, and hardly fair to
complain about matters unless we are
able to present suggestions looking
Tnere probably never was a commun
ity and probably never will be one
without its selfish men and women;
and conscience being a more or less
elastic attribute, such people, be
times, stretch it to very near the limit.
This Is true in official as well as in
private life. We have the fault right
here on Kauai lots of it. Are we to
close our eyes to it, and go blindly on
in the sweet satisfaction of our pp
timism? Let us hope not. Garden Is
land. If the old saying that "Two wrongs
do not make a right" be true, then
surely the situation is not improved
any by adding a third wrong. Hoogs
and Abrams may have been sentenced
lightly by Judge Ashford in the First
Circuit Court. We fall utterly to see,
however, how that justified Governor
Pinkham in pardoning the third man
who had been found guilty and sen
tenced for a similar offense. If the
principle and reasoning are right, why
did the governor stop at pardoning
one man? Why did he not make a
jail delivery of all the embezzlers and
forgers to be found in Oahu prison?
THINK MAUI COUPLE
FOOLED HONOLULU COURT
Either the mere presence of John
Kaluna is fascinating or he plotted
wilfully with his wife to get free faro
to Honolulu from Maul. Court officials
have not decided which is the case.
Martha Kaluna appeared a few days
ago and complained that John had
deserted her. He was brought back
on a . warrant and then appeared
before Judge Monsarrat to answer a
charge of wife desertion. Martha was
present, but instead of prosecuting she
wept over John and they arranged to
go back to Maui together. The county
paid . Kaluna'8 transportation back
here, and since his wife withdrew the
charge there is an idea existent that
