It is probable that a care taker for

be employed at least for the next
few months . The rest house commit

walls of the house need waterproofing
against the driving rains, that a shel

with which the house is supplied.

Judicial reform is needed in Hawaii
in the lower courts. A very large pro
portion of the cases appealed to the
circuit, courts would never have gone
higher if we had a better class of dist
rict magistrates. The lower court is
I he "poor man's court". The poor man
wants justice and If he knows he can
get it there ,both parties to the aver
age run of petty civil suits would take
the judgement of the magistrate as
A reform which would be a genu
ine one would bo to Increase the sal
ary of the district magistrate, placing
the emolument on a par with the aver
age earnings of members of the bar,
so that the best lawyers In the prof
ession would accept service in these
positions, for the honor of the appoint,
ment. Tut the best judges we can get
on tho district magistrate's bench,
and tho cost of running the circuit
courts would not be by a large sum
what it is today. It would also relieve
the higher courts of a mass of cases
they ought never to be called upon to
try. Advertiser .
A battalion of National Guardsmen
from each of the islands , of Hawaii,
Maui and Kauai might add consider
ably to the military feature of Carni
val week in Honolulu, preparations
for which are now being gotten under
way. Lack of transport facilities
would probably render it impractica
ble to move larger bodies of troops,
but a battalion from each island might
bo handled without difficulty. Gard
Kauai singers made another brave
effort at Hilo to wrest the first honors
from the veterans of Molokal, but
without better success than on former
occasions. Perseverance almost invar.

longer the delay the greater will be
the honor when tho banner at last

:ecretary Lane's Attitude Towards
Hawaii's Public Lands.
Chairman M. C .racheco of the Dem
ocratic territorial central committee
returned from the coast in the Manoa
Tuesday. Mr. racheco predicts that
the land policy that Governor Pinkham
is following in the Territory will be
come the big issue in tha coming polit.
ical camiuilgn in Hawaii. Mr. rache
co is of the opinion that Secretary of
the Interior Lane is responsiblo for
the idea of leasing public lands in the
Islands rather than to open them foi
homestoading. We gather from what
we have heard that if such an atti
tude as this does exist in the mind of
Mr. Lane it is because of his distrust
of corta'n gentlemen who have gained
a name locally as land grabbers.
Conditions are rather unfortunate
in Hawaii . It must be admitted that
there have been a great many persons
in the islands who have been compell
ed by circumstancs that they could
not control to abandon, lease or other
wise dispose of the tract of land on
which they had settled in good faith
with the intention of making a home.
Conditions here have made it imposs
ible for these people to do otherwise.
The deplorable attitude that some of
the plantations have taken in the
past toward the small farmers has
been responsible for most of
these difficulties. This attitude, it
would seem is passing . It cannot
pass too soon, we are certain for the
good of the territory .
It is a great pity that Secretary
Lane cannot Ppare the time to come to
Hawaii. Judging the reports brought
back to us by the returned delegates
to be true, we cannot altogether wond
er that the authorities at Washington
have a queer distorted idea of things
in the territory. Mr. Lane told one
of his visitors that half the people who
come to him from Hawaii tell him that
so-and-so is a cut-throat and a thief,
and the other half want him to make
a judge of the same party. There has
been such a calamitous amount of
bickering displayed over every quest
ion of national import .that we cannot
altogether wonder that Mr. Lane "can
not take tho word of "anybody from
However ,let him come and seo the
islands for himself and then let him
judge whether or not they are worth
preserving as an American common
wealth. O. Luso

The story hinges on the custom in a
section of rural England, that the eld
est daughter wear a pair of green
stockings at the wedding of her young-j
er sister , Celia Faraday had already
donned a pair at the marriage of
Madge, and when rhyllis, her young
est sister shows symptoms of being en
gaged ,it creates a disturbance in the
Faraday household. Celia plans to
aid l'hyllis by claiming she is engaged
to a fictitious Col. Smith, with his reg
iment in Somaliland. After eight
months of letter writing she causes a
notice to he published in the paper of
tho death of Col. Smith. Later Celia
is perturbed by the appearance of Col.
Vavassour, who claims to have been a
friend of Col. Smith's. Col. Vavassour
and Celia fall in love and he discloses
his identity to be the Col. Smith to
whom she was supposed to have been
Miss Ward appears as "Tennessee''
a waif of the plains ,a child of the
desert. The story opens when "Tenn
essee" and her parents are making a
trip across the continent in a prairie
schooner. "Tennessee" mother de
serts her husband who in turn is shot
in tho chase. "Tennessee" Is then
brought up in a mission by her father's
friend, Jack Hunter who "Tennessee"
for many years believes is her father.
When the girl grows up she starts in
seach of 'her "father" is kidnapped,
held for ransom and finally escapes
to understand the true state of affairs,
after many excitiiig happenings.
Island eggs are scarcer this week,
and the price has advanced. .
The market is well supplied with
poultry but prices are steady at last
week's quotations .
VcgHlables are not as plentiful ns
they were last week and several arti
cles have advanced in price . There
is a good market now for cabbage, Ir
ish potatoes and yellow corn. A few
farmers who are sending potatoes and
corn to the market are getting the
best prices in years. The sooner
they can get all of their crop to the
market the better it will be for the
price is sure to drop ns soon as the
strike in San Francisco is settled.
The market is particularly good for
sweet potatoes and producers having
them on hand should sh. at once.
Alligator pearr are plentiful and
cheap and large shipments will prob
ably arrive by the Mauia Loa today.
Chinese bananas r.re a drug on the
market due to lack of shipping facili
ties, rnd rre being sold as low as
l.'c a 'mn.'h. Figs and grapes are
plentiful with prices low. The lime
market is practically bare.very small
shipments having arrived during the
past month . The height of the water
melon season peems to have been
reached and the price has advanced
There has been no change in the
live stork, dressed meat or hide mark
ets and feed quotations are the same
as last. week.
The retail vegetable and butcher
departments are showing very satis
factory increases and as soon as
all the equipment is in working order
it is expected that the sales will be
more than doubled. It is found that
these two departments are helping
considerable to sell the produce re
ceived on consignment.
A. T. LONGLEY,
July, 17, 1916.
An extraordinary Paramount Tict
ure produced by the Famous Players
Film Co. gives Pauline Frederick an
unusual opportunity for tho display of
her amazing talents ,as the subject
presents her in two diversely opposite
roles, Valerie St. Cyr ,a notorious
raiis'.an beauty and her deserted
daughter Joan. In impersonating
these dual but distinct characters, the
superb emotional artiste performs
miracles of character interpretation
and of dramatic portrayal. The tre
mendous power of Miss Fredericks'
art and the wide range of her screen
capabilities were never so forcefully
illustrated as in her compelling delin
eation of this unique emotional drama.
The Song Of Hate.
Petty Nansen is a big local favor
ite and was a prime favorite in Europe
before she undertook to visit America
and join the Fox forces.
In "The Song Of Hate" at the Haw
aii, Fox has discovered in the role of
La Tosca a part that might have been
made to order for Nansen. As the op
era singer, who is loved of and who
loves a young artist w no is also loved
by the prefect of police, she is given
every opportunity for a display of the
emotions. When the artist is jailed
and the prefect names the price of his
freedom La Tosca she does not
hesitate but quickly agrees to
The lover is released, and the pre
feet would claim his reward.
Tosca pays but not in the coin
had been expected . Cold steel is used
and in one of the most thrilling of ell-
m.ixe.? she drives the dagger to the
heart of her persecutor.
