I OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES f
THE "CTOCKTON PLAN"
Response to the suggestion i,n this
paper yesterday that Honolulu should
Invite California hlph schools to s;nd
teams here n-m year or in 1017 as
Stockton '.lijtj school has done, vinies
with gratify.n? emphasis and un
animity? The Stockton boys in their brief
stay here have made a fine impression
of young manhood. They are pood
students and good sportsmen. They
won their trip by scholarship and athl
etic ability, with scholarship the first
Other high schools of the stafe will
undoubtedly be glad to Bend teams
here as Stocks!? has done. It is a
good th'ng for the boys and for the
schools, and for Honolulu. To get
the best results from such visits next
year or the year after, it would be
wise to have the coast lads here all
at the same time with a big inter
scholastic track and field meet a
swimming tournament, an entertain
ment and perhaps other features,
heartily supported by the local
schools, the city and the commercial
The possibilities along this line are
almost limitless. It is suggested for
instance, that, the biggest interschol
astic track meet ever held could be
staged In Honolulu, through invita
tions to 200 or more high schools in
the United States, each being asked
to send six men here. This feature
is discussed fully by the sporting edit
or of the Star-Bulletin on the sports
Even if only the California schools
be included, the possibilities for all
' Hawaii are enormous. The publicity
that would result from such a plan of
bringing high school groups here
would be remarkable. Mr. Amos El
liott, who is in charge of the Stockton
visitors, proposes another feature well
worth attention. . It Is that each al
ternate year Hawaii should send a
team to California. This scheme
could be worked out in conjunction
with that to bring here a large number
of high school boys.
Stockton has shown the way. Stock
ton's school authorities, public offici
als, businessmen, backed the trip,
realizing that both in preparation for
it and in its actual enjoyment the Idea
Is inspirational, educational.
Honolulu should lose no time in
deciding to Invite the high schools of
California or of the whole couutry
If, upon consideration, that seems
feasible to carry out the "Stockton
plan" In 1917 or 1918. Star-Bulletin.
WHERE THE SHOE PINCHES
The volutuous plantation bonus is
demoalizing labor generally, in the
District, and hitting some of the smal
ler employers of labor on the point of
chin. If the sugar magnates had delib
erately planned to bankrupt every
other industry in the islands they
couldn't have hit the nail squarer on
the head. Of course, in the cities and
towns the Itch for sudden wealth by
".he bonus route doesn't probably work
is great hardship as in a country
listrict like Kohala. Every cook,
yard man etc., has a brother, or
cousin, or aikane (best friend) who
has drawn a 60 per cent bonus, and
instantly he sees the glittering gold
pieces, his own steady pay looks like

copper cents, and he makes a raid on
his employer, couched something like
this "Boss, me speak I like bonus alio
same." And they expect back-money
for the whole of last year. Kohala
..It is announced from Honolulu that
the bonus system of 1916 will be cont
inued by the sugar plantations
through 1917. We believe it to be a
mistake to hold this bonus and pay
out at one clip. Let it be paid by the
month. The laborers will be better
satisfied and they will realize more
of value from the money. The 1916
plan of filling the pockets of the lab
orers with money in a day has had a
demoralizing effect, and should not
be repeated. Garden Island.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
It is rather amusing to hear the
concern affected by some over the
near possibility of a substantial American-Japanese
vote in these Islands
and at the same time note the abso
lute unconcern paid to the fact that
very soon there may be a bigger
Filipino vote here than that of the
Japanese, Chinese and Portuguese
combined. The prospective Japanese
voters are American in birth, educa
tion and interest; the Filipinos are
assisted imm'grants, poorly educated
and with a criminal record here that
is appalling. On Maui, during the past
two weeks, one hundred and twenty
Filipinos applied for their first natur
alization papers, and here are four
hundred others on the Valley Isle
preparing to apply for their first
papers this week, a total of 530! The
total Maui Vote last month nvhs 2872.
If the Japanese plantation laborers
are sending some of their bonus mo
ney to their home country, what
about it? Are the Japanese the only
people who send their surplus cash
either to their relatives in the old
country or for investment there? The
laborers don't, at any rate, send their
money for investment on the main
land in wild cat mining and oil stock,
as do a large number of other na
tionalities. It is their money and they
surely can do what they like with it.
Big New Matson Liner
Is Successfully Launched
The new Matson liner "Maui" was
launched last Saturday morning at
the yards of the Union Iron Works,
San Francisco, in the presence of a
big crowd, according to advices re
ceived here. The launching was in
every way a success. Mrs. Wm.
Matson was sponsor for the big craft,
which will make her first run to the
Islands in March. It is understood
that already a large part of the pass
enger accommodations have been re
served for the maiden voyage. Among
those to come will be Chas. M.
Schwab, the steel magnate, who is
coming for a vacation to the Islands.

neighbor, Col. Vaughn.
Across a rugged barkground of
frontier life Is woven this sweetest
love story of Stalwart Davy Crockett
and dainty Eleanor Vaughn. She
(lances beside him when he visits
his traps, learns from him the art of
woodcraft, and in turn reads to him
masterpieces of literature, particular
ly his favorite hero, I.ochinvnr.
Eleanor goes to England to bo edu
cated; returning, her father d'es at

control of Col. Royston, who through
a weakness for gambling, has com
mitted forgery and involved the
Vaughn estate to Oscar Crampton, a
professional gambler. To save him

the marriage of Eleanor to Oscar
Crampton's nephew, Neil.
Eleanor walks blindly into the net
and Davy looks on sore at heart.
Eleanor's awakening begins when she
is lost in the mountains wilh Nell,

Donald Brian, the popular stage
favorite, returns to the screen under
auspicious as well as thoroughly
amusing circumstances in the Famous
Tlayers Film Company's comedy
production, "The Smugglers." The
The laughable series of comic traged
ies which results from the attempt
of John Iiattleby Watts, who has made
millions by converting hay into break
fast food, to recover his wife's $20,
000 pearls which he has carelessly
lost, and for which he has substitut
ed bogus pearls, is presented with
much humor and many thrills. The
culmination of Watt's trials
at the Customs House, when he at
tempts to smuggle in the bogus pearls
in order to avoid the exposure which
would result from his declaring them
at their supposed $20,000 valuation.
In spite of his efforts, however, the
indignant Mrs. Watts learns of the
substitution of her pearls. In the fol
lowing scene Watts learns that the
belief that "pearls are made of tears"
is composed of more truth than im
agination. "The Serpent"
Theda Bara is at her best as Vania
Lazar, a beauliful Russian peasant
girl. Betrayed and debauched by the
Grand Duke Valonoff, she leaves the
country and with naught but hate in
her heart for all men deliberately sets
forth on a career of devastation. High
or low degree, it matters naught, her
prey is man, and In the city in which
she has taken up her abode, she
leaves a trail marked by ruined lives.
The war has broken out, wounded
soldiers are arriving from the front,
and "The Serpent" watches in glee
as the broken men file past her
window. A Russian officer is carried
She makes inquiry and discovers that
the wounded officer is Prince Valon
off, son of the Grand Duke. She
helps nurse him back to health and
he, too, falls victim to her charms.
Shortly after their marriage the
Grand Duke sends word that he is
coming to visit his beloved and only
son. The Prince is called away be
fore his father's arrival. Vania greets
the Grand Duke, who does not recogn
ize her. He makes love to her after
she has lured him on.
The Prince returns, and finding his
wife clasped in the arms of his own
father, commits suicide. The last
drop of venom from the "The
Serpent's" fangs has found its mark.
"Britton of the Seventh"
"Briton of the Seventh," Vitagraph
Blue Ribbon Feature, employs the
services of the famous 11th Cavalry,
known for their valor in all cam
paigns, and now engaged in the Villa
hunt in the wilds of Mexica. This
feature was written by Cyrus Town
send Brady and is a gripping military
drama. Lieutenant Britton of the
Seventh sent with his command to
arrest an Indian chief wanted for the
massacre of two white men, members
of the Seventh Cavalry. Britton brings
back the murder and jails him and
started one of the prime causes of
the Custer massacre, all of which is
vividly pictured in this feature.
