To Have And To Hold ,
(ip of the most wllVy rond novels
In a Rfnorntlon in America, "To Have
and To Hold", by Mary Johnston, Is
related In photoplay form by the Jesse

Mae Murray, the famous Btape beauty
and star in the leadinR role. The pro
duction will mark Miss Murray's debut
as a Lanky star on the Paramount
Program. Wallace Held, a favorite of
the screen will appear in Miss Mur
The story of "To Have and To Hold"
goes back to the days of the early 17th
century when a few sturdy English ad
venturers had the fortitude to brave
the dangers of establishing a settle
ment in Virginia.
In contrast to them was Jocelyn
Leigh, a beautiful lady of the Eng'.iBh
court, who fled from England to es
cape the prospects of an unhappy mar
riage. Captain Percy, a Virginian set
tler, marries Jocelyn but his right to
her hand is challenged by Lord Carnal
who followed Jocelyn from England.
Thereafter, is a series of exciting Inci
dents in the effort of Captain Percy to
exercise his right "to have and to

favorite of patrons of the William Fox

Gypsy" tells the love story of a girl of
Romany blood, but gentle breeding,
for a man whose being appeals to her
even to the sacrifice of her highest
hopes and ambitions.
Among the rugged heather-grown
hills of old Scotland, The Little Gypsy
l'ves out her romance and ultimately
attains the happiness for which she
has long strive. l. She defies conven
tion but in so doing satisfies the long
ing of her heart. Altogether a mas
terpiece of photodramatic craftsmanship.
St. George Temple, an aristocratic
old gentleman lives in his fine old
home in Kennedy Scniare, and is liked
by everyone. Harry flutter tells him
of his love affair and his troubles, and
the old gentleman acts as peacemaker
between Rutter and Kate, daughter of
Hon. Douglass Seymour. It proves a
thankless Job, and after a duel in the
Rutter home, between Harry and a riv.
al suitor, Harry is put out of the house
by his father and comes to live with
St. George. Things go from bad to
worse, when St. George Joses his mon

a ruby mine, the young man returns to
find the old gentleman living in pov
erty; and makes full restitution. This
time St. George acts the part of peace
maker successfully and Kate and Har

For The Defense
No star of the legitimate stage, who

that has come to Fannie Ward, the
famous American comedienne. She
is now the star in the Paramount Pic

the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Com

a great tragedy. By an accident she
becomes the sole witness to a murder
for which a young man, unknown to
her until he later assists her.is accused.
When this man, who has kept secret
from her his true identity is 'ater ac
cused of crime, none but the little
French girl is able to prove his inno
cence. The scenes of "For The De
fense", are laid in New York, and in
the beautiful West. It is a story of
great suspense from beginning to end.

Voluntary Limitation Of Sales
The Best Strategy
Once let a preponderance of the in
fluential Army officers stationed here
be enlisted in the cause of prohibition
for Hawaii, sore trouble will he In
sight for those who have money in
vested In the business.
Of all the national Interests center
ed in this archipelago, its importance
as the first defensive outpost for the
Pacific Coast of the United States is
absolutely paramount. So far as these
islands are concerned they are a loss
financially to the United States. What
money the nation derives from its diff
erent sources here is more than re
turned through the various military
Hence should a preponderance of
the officers high in command of the
soldiery here get the impression that
'he morale of the troops' was suffering
excessively or needlessly through the
consumption of liquor, cause for con
siderable worry to the dealers would
This being the case ,lt would look
like good strategy on the part of the
liquor dealers to voluntarily limit
their-sales to men of the service or
anybody ese, for that matter, by his
capacity to conduct himself with law
The yery best strategy consists of
anticipating the intentions of the op
position and beating the opposition
to It. The Service.
Some of the most delicious strawber

near the Volcano, yet Mr. Kretzschmar

The Civic Convention
The civic convention next year, will
in the natural order of things, be held
in Hono'ulu, and we are inclined to
the opinion that, for quite awhile at
least, future sessions of the body
should be convened in the city. There
is practical work for the civic conven
tion and out of it may be developed
practicad results, but before that can
be accomplished we must modify the
pleasure jaunt aspect which has dom
inated the civic convention in the past
and let straight business have a swing
for an indefinite period. Theorists
and "hot-air merchants" who hunger
for new worlds to conquer may take
issue with this view, and the jaunter
undoubtedly wills but the majority,
aiming for results and unmindful of
the gilded fringe which has intruded
itself upon the civic convention Idea
will concede that the recognizd objects
of the organization may best be pro
moted by concentrating thought and
endeavors upon the pura'.y business
objects of the Institution.
The first civic convention, held at
Hilo, accomplished nothing of real val
ue, and the same may possibly be said
of the affair on Kauai last year. At
Walluku the previous year a bold ef
fort was made and some genu'.ne good
probably resulted . Aside from that,
however, the civic conventions held in
the outer islands have proved little
more than pleasure jaunts, and we
have no hope that they will ever Im
prove. A compromise might be made to the
end that each alternate convent ion be
held away from Honolulu, or that ev
ery third year the affair be turned Into
a pleasure jaunt as in the past, but we
certainly hope that the present
scheme will be abandoned at least
for a number of years. Garden Island.
The Chamber Of Commerce
The Kauai Chamber of Commerce
now has a membership of 130, an in
crease of 23 for the year, after de
ducting members who have left the
island or have dropped out in other
ways, or for other reasons. This, we
believe, makes it the second largest
commercial organization in the Terri
tory in point of numbers, being exceed
ed only by the Chamber of Commerce
of Honolulu. In its membership Is
included men in all walks of local
business and professional life, thus
making it representative In the fu'lest
A strong, well organized and perf
ectly keyed commercial organization
is a valuable asset to any community.
It is worth while. It should be sup
ported to the limit, and be kept alive
and awake and "on the Job" at all
times. The co-operation of the offi
cers and committees and the members
and their alertness at all times are
necessary. Given these essentials,
even greater success than in the past
Is assured for Kauai's commercial org
anization. Garden Island.
It is about time that the eight-hour
law was made a fact in America. In
the most democratic country in the
