MILITARY TRAINING IN SCHOOLS.
Hawaii has ever been quick to
grasp new ideas and, in manv instanc
ps, has been anions; the first to make
practical use of them. Thus we may
anticipate that, the movement for mili
tary training in the public schools of
the country will lie seriously consid
ercd in these Islands before Ions.
in coining to the point, however,
certain peculiar conditions are to be
reckoned with. For Instance, the
American mind from the beginning; of
our history has been trained to rebel
against compulsory service, and com
pulsory training in the schools is so
nearly akin to that, that it is more
than likely to "start something", and
in "high places" at that. How long
this predudice, or objection, would
continue is problcmat ieal. If rapidly
made general all over the country,
objection might give way as the pub
lic, became better acquainted with and
used to it.
New York has taken the lead In
this important matter and undoubted
ly other states will follow in rapid
succession. There has been introduc
ed in the New York Assembly, with
the approval of Governor Witliman, a
bill providing for the standardized
physical training of all boys over eight
years of age in the public schools and
for military training for not less than
three hours weekly during secondary
Military matters in general have
been given a tremendous boost ahead
in the past eighteen months In the
United States. New military schools
and training institutions have sprung
up like mushrooms. If to this aval
anche of fundamental "preparedness"
is to be added military training in the
public schools, is our much-loved
American democracy not drifting to
ward the schoals of dreaded militar
ism? We are by no means clear on what
the results of this agitation maybe
probably no one is. Military- training
is not a bad thing. The danger lies
in having bo much of it that it may
call for huge armies, enormous forti
fications and the war spirit which
seems to dominate a considerable
section of the world today. I
There is general tendency nowa
days to agree with the importance of
training men in the military art (if
it may be called an art), but when
it. comes to a question of instilling the
same principles into the susceptible
minds of the youth of the land, there
may be a reason to stop and think.

In making an early start on the
preparations for the Fifth Civic Con
vention, Hilo is showing a lot of com
mon sense. The sooner all the ar
rangements are made the better the
convention will be. If the men who
will attend as delegates are Informed
in advance of what all the discussions
will be about, a lot of snap judgment
will be obviated and much more good
wlil be accomplished at the conven
tion. And that feature is just what is
planned by those in charge of the
coming convention. Hawaii Herald.

Maui hears that the main reason for
the appointment of Philip Pali as dis
trict magistrate of the Lahaina dis
trict was to secure his necessary
resignation from the doard of super
visors in order that Governor Pink-
ham might appoint Dr. J. II. Raymond
to the vacancy. Dr. Raymond is a

under the circumstances and the talk.
It would be deplorable if the impres
sion that the local magistracies are
to become political footballs is to gain
seeming confirmation. The legisla
ture, in transferring the power of ap
pointment, from the chief justice to
the Governor, did so on the frankly ex
pressed idea that politics are" not
wanted in the judiciary. The position
which Magistrtae Pali has accepted
carries a salary of $100 a month, dou
ble that drawn by him as supervisor.
Maui reports point to the extra fifty a
month as the price Pali receives to
make way for Raymond. The Gover
nor can stop that kind of talk very
promptly by filling Pali's place with
someone other than his friend, the
doctor from Ulupalakua. Advertiser.
Those who are worrying under the
impression that Germany, should she
win out in Europe, would reach for
the United States with the clutch of
conquest, seem to lose sight of the
fact that Germany would require a
mighty army or two at home to keep
down her defeatcd(?) opponents. This
is no argument against preparedness.

There is very good demand for all

Green vegetables are getting back
to normal again., Cabbage, however

good prices. Those received to date
have been rather small.
There are a few alligator pears in
the market but these are not very
good. The high winds we have been
having during the past few days has
blown tho blossoms from the trees
and this year which bad promised
to be good for this fruit will probably
turn out to be a poor one. There
are some very fine pineapples in the
market now. Some of them weighing
as much as 12 pounds. Strawberries

Due to the fact that the steamers
are unable to accept all of the bana

is the best season for the sale of ba

pity that the producers are unable to
get space for their fruit, at this time.
There has been no improvement in
