to work for first-class badges while
troop III (Wailulfli) has just taken its
second class test very credilably. This
is one of the chief standards upon
which scouting must be judged: i. e., a
progressive improvement m mo noys.
In the midst of the hikes and usual
happenings of good scouts two pieces
of work stand out conspicicuously
during the year: the scout play given
at Makawao which did much to ad-
vert'se the movement, and the work
of the boys during the County Fair.
In recognition of this last service the
executive committee have written a
loiter of appreciation and sent a check
of fifty dollars for enu!pment.

I susuest that commissions be grant

sooner or later, take up the work of

that each member of this counc'l pay

also suggest that each member of the
council contribute not less than one
dollar to be used towr.rd defraying
the expenses of the work on Maui.
If this counc'l will cooperate most
heartily with whomever you may sol

may be extended and improved on

Government Control of Wireless
Last week the Kaunl Chamber of
Commerce received a wireless rppeal
from the Honolulu Chamber of Com- j
merce to protest to Delegate Kalnnia
ole against the passage of the bill in
Congress which provides for the Vn;t-
d States government taking over and
operating the commercial wireless
ysems between coastal points of
America, and ships nt sea: and, wit li
nt doiinM.e information as to what
ihe bill really was, and confidence In
the good judgement of the parent
ommeroial body at Honolulu, the
head of thov local Chamber complied
ilh the rennest, recommending to the
Delegate that the bill be "held up"
if possible until Kauai could be hoard
Since that time the condensed state
ment of contents of the bill, printed
elsewhere, came In: and upon read
ing it many people W'iJl doubtless
ondor if the scheme might not real
ly be a good thing in place of a detri
ment. The government handles the

teamship enterprises. There are

ment necessities and rules, but the
suspicion Is probably far fetched.
The Mutual Telephone Company
is earned and deserves the appre
ciation of all the Islands for (lie ex
cellent w'reless service which it main
tains, and Kauai, first and foremost
of all, perhaps, wishes to add to its
reward in place of lessening it. At
he same time it occurs oi ce in a

fess that we are just a little kanalua
as to whether or not this is one of

Support Promotion Work
The Hawaiian Promotion Commit
tee deserves the utmost support of
ihe wbole of Hawaii. The committee
is run by keen, level-headed busi
ness men, who know what they are
about and realize the worth of a pub
licity bureau of the nature of the Ha
waiian Promotion Commute.
The policy of the Honolulu board
of supervisors who voted to cut out
the appropriation of $250 per month
which has been pnid'to the promotion
committee for ninny years past, is a
backward move and one that is only
made possible by either personal ani
mus or a real bone head play. The
supervisors of Oahu should pet busy
and remedy their mistake as soon as
possible. The solons must admit
that for twelve years the promotion
committee has been working to ach
ieve results that are now beginning to
be noticed very vividly. The decision
of the supervisors of Honolulu to with
draw their monthly stipend is a move
backwards. Do the solons want to
see Honolulu as it was ten years aco
a small village which went to sleep
at eight o'clock every evening or do
they want to see the up-to-date, spark
ling town of the present continued?
Tgurists made Honolulu what she is
and, as lime goes on the present man
ner of town will be enlarged upon and
tourists will come by the thousands
where they are now coming in hundr
The Hawaiian Promotion Commit
tee has brought thousands of tourists
to the islands and has w-tll paid its
way and justified its existence. The
crippling of the body in any manner
would be a catastrophe and it is to be
hoped that the solons of Oahu cot a
change of heart very Quickly. Hawaii
