Will Play In
the Gnat War
(Continued Xrom Page Two.)'
While a service of the press is the
creation of such public opinion re
garding terms of peace as will make
peace terms certain that are democrat
ic and right, the censorship rules given
out by the committee on public in
formation at Washington last month
contain this most significant suggest
"Speculation about possible peace
Is another topic which may possess ele
ments of danger, as peace reports may
be of enemy origin, put out to weak
en the combination against Germany."
That pronouncement is at variance
with an earlier one: "Blessed are the
People Should Have Voice
Such a prohibition, if carried into '
effect, as of course it cannot be yet
thank God in this republic, would
mean, as another has said, that "the
administration alone could conclude
peace when it was ready and not be
fore and on its own terms, and that
both opinion as to the wisdom of its
course and information regarding it
would be wthheld from the public."
With such secret diplomacy no real
friend of democracy can agree. "Peo
ple who pay for and fight the war have
a right to know on what grounds it
may be ended and when. They should
have a voice in the restoration of peace
and in the dictation of the terms upon
which that peace may be rightfully
won." We must prepare for the day
not far distant, let us hope when
"The tumult and the shouting dies
The captains and the kings depart."
The war may last for years. It may
end, as it came, overnight. However
this may be, now Is the time for the
press in every proper way to enlighten
and educate a public opinion that will
make the world safe for democracy
and assure genuine democracy for the
world when the war fortunately comes
to a close.
I congratulate you as members of a
profession having large responsibility
at a crucial time in the world progress.
I speak to men in whose hands is, to a
large degree, the making of a world.
We are building a world house anew.
Blood-stained bricks enter into its con
struction. Let us see that the blood
is not shed in vain. Let us see that
the new house of humanity has in it
ample room for all peoples, room to
grow to the fullest stature of individ
ual and national strength. Macaulay
said with truth: "There are only two
forms of government government by
public opinion and government by the
sword." Let us see to it that govern
ment by public opinion dominates,
making unnecessary and impossible
government by the sword. Holding in
largest measure the sources of pub
licity under our control, the output
of raw material out of which public
opinion is manufactured, let us with
courage and patriotism and love for
all humanity do our "bit." Thus and
thus alone may permanent govern
ment by the sword be averted and an
enduring rlgtheous peace prevail.
All Journalists In Same Boat
What I have said of journalism as
a weapon for democracy applies to
small newspapers as well as to large
newspapers, to the rural weekly as to
the metropolitan daily, to the man in
humblest position as to the man in
the most conspicuous place reporter,
editor, publisher, alike. We are all in
the same boat. We cannot leave the
rowing of it to other hands. We are
all members of the same noble profes
sion. Responsibility for its dignity,
its honor and its high service rest up
on us all. If there be those amongst
us who, through indifference, coward
ice or unpatrlotism, are recreant to
their trust as journalists of America
in such a fateful hour as this, let us
seek to win them back to paths of pa
triotic courage and devotion by mild
and gentle words or, failing, let us
scourage them with whip of small
cords from the temple of journalism
Ideas, not navies, still rule the seas.
Ideas, not armies, yet dominate the
land. It Is increasingly and ever true
the whole quotation makes the
meaning clear that "In the hands of
men entirely great, the pen is mighter
than the sword."
The ship of state is upon a new and
uncharted sea. Information as to the
voyage, as to the officers and the crew,
is needed. It is for us to supply this
information. It is needed to steady
and keep In heart those aboard so that
the bunkers may be filled with coal
and the pantries with food, and that
each may carry on. Constructive crit
icism of the conduct of the voyage is
needed to see that the helm U not
shifted wrong nor the course changed
under specious plea to an unknown
port far from the desired haven of
democracy. Enactment of right rules
of travel and obedience thereunto
may even the readjustment of the
ship's accommodations may be neces
sary in order that the ship of state
flying colors of freedom may be habit
able for all alike, not some perpetually
condemned to the steerage and some
permitted always cabin life. Unto
such management, for such ends, those
truly serve who only stand and write.
Thus the war itself, frightful as it
is and more frightful, may serve the
ideal of democracy which Pasteur
dreamed where each man has a
chance to make the most and best of
himself, and as far as peace and law
and honest wage and aggressive broth
erhood can make it so, an equal chance.
To aid unto this good end to make
the world safe for democracy and to
keep democracy safe in our lands is
the challenge unto you and me today,
impossible so long aa our hearts are
impossible sol ong as our hearts are
young and our faith sure and there is
"before our eyes the vision high and
splendid nothing is impoinil)le to
men engaged upon and genuinely in
terested in the profession of journa
lismjournalism, the fascinating,
great, unfinished new adventure.

HONOLULU. July 13, There has

A few of Maul neans have been re

not yet arrived. The potato market
is on the down grade and a little lat
er when imported potatoes begin to
come in large quantities, the price
will be still lower. However, the few
bags of potatoes received .from Maul
had little or nothing to do with the
drop in price. The 100 sacks of pota
toes recently received from Hawaii
are of much better quality than the
Maui potatoes and brings better prices.
Hilo is sending down, large ship
ments of the best Isabella grapes the
Division on has ever received. As
these grapes will sell for 6 cents a
pound retail, housewives would do
well to buy them for putting ud in
jellies and jams.
