THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1915.
OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
Two Great Companion Evils.
Drink nnd idleness nro companion
incentives to crime. Tlio presence of
either one or the other in a commun
ity Is a certain indication that the
moral tone of that locality is below
standard; and where you find both
you also find busy criminal courts and
crowded Jails. Drink is the arch evil
in this territory; idleness Is his sturdy
twin brother. IJoth combined caused
the murder and suicide In Manon val
ley, Honolulu, two weeks ago. Idle
ness caused the awful tragedy In Ka
lihiwal valley in Juno and probably
murdered the school girl in Kohala
district last month.
The two evils work hand in hand.
Encourage one and you assist the
other. Destroy one and you deal a
heart blow to the other. Drink is the
giant. That evil has for ages with
stood the most determined assaults.
Idleness does not fight back. It may
in some cases barricade itse'.f, but it
will yield. These being facts, might
it not be moral strategy to campaign
against Drink, the greater evil, by
striking at Idleness?
It is easy enough to say that the
Filipinos are bad, the I'orto Ricans
are troublesome, or such and such
boys are hoodlums; but do we try to
find the cause? If we did we would
probably discover that Idleness is at
the bottom of it. No, we do not mean
that such are loafers. They work
in work hours, and probably are indus
trious in those hours. Ilut it is "at
evening, after hours, when they are
idle, that their minds and hands turn
to mischief. And right there the duty
of all men who would improve the
situation begins. That duty Is tp
provide study for those who wish to
learn, athletics for those desiring ex
ercise and healthful amusements for
those not inclined toward the first two
The thing needed on Kauai and
throughout the Islands is the athletic
night school. They should be estab
lished in every town, and in every
large camp; and when they are, it
will be noted that the evils that conic
from Drink and Idleness will lessen
and may ultimately be reduced to a
very satisfactory minimum. Garden
Island. j '
Instinct of Revenge Mob Law Motive.
Such outrages as the one recently
committed in Kohala by an inhuman
brute is what arouses the wrath of
the people of the southern states and
causes them to take the law in their
hands and summarily and severely
punished depraved degenerates. Not,
as many people often seem to think,
because those who resort to mob law
are of an inferior state of civilization.
Kohala residents will now appreciate
the state of mind of an otherwise good
citizen who, infuriated by some awful
crime, wishes to inflict horrible tor
ture upon a ravisher and murderer.
And they will be the first to recog
nize that this is not a justification of
mob law, but a realization that the in
stinct of revenge to pay pain with
pain, torture with torture, horror with
horror is pretty deeply planted In
every individual, whereever he lives.
The only difference between the South
and Hawaii is that in the South it
is customary to do so; in Hawaii it
is not. I!ut now' that the first white
heal of passion has passed in Kohala,
the citizens of that section will be
content to let the law take its course
sure in the belief that such a dast
ardly crime cannot go unpunished,
slow as may be the devious ways of
constituted authority. Hilo Tribune.
All Hawaii feels proud of Sergeant
Evans who won the rifle shooting
championship of the United States
last week at Jacksonville. Hawaii al
ways shows up well in every depart
ment of sport and athletics. With
the champion swimmer and the cham
pion shot of the world in our group,
we can look around with some kind
of pride on the rest of the world.
The hand that rocks the cradle in
the Eastern States will have to keep
on rocking for a while, judging from
the election returns yesterday. From
the results in New York, Massachu
setts and Pennsylvania, the Bong the
voters chorused as they marched to
the ballot box was: "I Didn't Raise
My Girl To lie a Voter." Advertiser.
Dentists For Schools.
It has been, and is still is the cus
tom, that a doctor shall visit every
school at least once every school term
to vaccinate the school children; but
the time has come when a dentist
ought to be paid to visit every school
once every term, and inspect the
children's teeth, as a good number
of absences are caused by the chil
dren having bad teeth.
I am sure that some of tin. den
tists are willing to give a half of a
day each month, or term gratis, to
inspect and report to their parents the
condition of the school children's
teeth, with such recommendations or
comments as may be necessary, so
that the parents may know then what
Will not our next Legislature see
that something is done in this respect,
and a law passed provfrg a dentist,
or dentists, to undemTke the work
and be paid the same as the doctors
who do the vaccinating? Who wjjl
"start the ball rolling?" Kohala Midget.
Republicans Win In
Suffrage Snowed Under Everywhere.
Ohio Votes Down Prohibition
Tammany Carries New York City.
NEW YORK, Nov. 4. Samuel W.
McCall, republican, was elected gov
ernor of Massachusetts over David
Walsh, the democratic incumbent. In
this state Tammany Hall carried the
election for the democrats in New
York City, but the state generally
went republican, and the legislature
will be republican. The democrats
elected Judge Edward Swann, district
attorney. Emerson C. Harrington,
democratic candidate for governor of
Maryland, won from Ovington E. Wel
ler, the republican candidate, after a
hot battle. In Ohio, prohibition was
definitely defeated, and in New York,
Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts the
equal suffrage amendments were
LIGHTNING DESTROYS TWO
MILES OF TELEPHONE LINE
The county telephone line between
Halawa and Brown's ranch, on Molo
kai, for- a distance of two miles, was
put out of commission last week by
the thunderstorm which visited that
island in unusual violence. Accord
ing to District Overseer Eugene Dev
auchelle, who has made a requisition
for two miles of wire and two new
Instruments, the lightning struck the
line and not only destroyed the in
struments at each end, but burned up
the line wire as well. Owing to the
rarity of lightning damage in these
islands, practically no measures are
taken in telephone work here to pro
tect lines from this source of injury.
RAINY WEEK ALL OVER MAUI.
General rains are reported from all
sections of the territory. During the
past week all parts of Maui have had
more or less rain with the possible
exception of the southern side of the
Islands. Lahaina has had some good
showers, and heavy rains in the moun
tains. Wailuku has had rain almost
every day. East of Paia, in the Haiku
district, the weather has been too
wet to admit of much farm work be
ing done, and the roads are getting
bad. This is also the case' throughout
Makawao, where travel is being seri
ously interfered with.
