I'nique Dinner Planned For August
21 Chamhcr 01 Commerce Mem
bers To Give Wives Object Lesson
Something unique In booster din
ners will be the one that has been
decided upon by the civic convention
committee of the Maul chamber of
commerce to be held on Tuesday
evening, August 21.
In the first place it will be a "mixed
doubles" affair. In other words for
the first Vine, perhaps, the chamber
of commerce members will be at liber
ty to bring their wives or other ladies,
as well ns men guests they may care
But the most original idea is that
the dinner shall be an entirely home
grown affair from soup to nuts not
even excepting condiments. Just how
the committee plans to carry out the
idea is the com in' t tee's business and
has not been divulged. The members
declare, however, that they will have
a menu that will tempt the most
fastidious epicure, and be absolutely
Maul produced. The committee con
s'sts of D. II. Case, J. J. Walsh, nnd
W. O. Aiken.
It is also understood that the Roost
er Club, of last year's civic convention,
has come lo,life and will be prepared
to do a little appropriate crowing
when the d'nner date arrives.
The dinner, ns has previously been
stated, is with a view of preparing for
holding up Maui's end in the sixth
civic convention which meets this
year in Honolulu on September 16, 17,
Head Of The
Though Absent From His Post Major
Charles Forbs Will Receive His
HONOLULU, August 4, Consider
able speculation has been indulged in
of lute relative to the position' of
Superintendent of Public Works, still
held by Major Charles R. Forbes, who
is absent on the mainland serving his
country. In Honolulu, the question as
to whether or not Major Forbes was
entitled to his pay for the month of
July has been generally discussed
and it has finally been referred to Act
ing Attorney General Sm'th for an ex
pression of opinion.
Legal Opinion Withheld
From the Capital City, it has been
reported that the acting attorney
general will hand down no opinion in
the matter at present, for he has been
asked by the Governor to hold up his
opin'on until the Governor hears per
sonally from his cabinet officer. This
means, practically, that in failing to
hear adversely from the acting at
torney general. Auditor Hopkins will
issue the month's salary worth in
avor of Major Forbes, and probably
many more to come.
Still Await Resignation
It has been learned that within a
few days Major Forbes' resignation
will be received by the Governor, but
that the chief executive will not ac
cept it. He will hold it in abeyance
until the officer returns from the
mainland. As the Governor's term
of office expires in December of this
year, and Major Forbes will not re
turn before then, it is expected that
Major Forbes' connection with the
Territory will cease at the same time.
Hobby To Act As Substitute
Forbes' resignation was expected to
be in the hands of the Governor the
first of July, but a month has gone
by and it has not been offered. The
Governor, it is confidently expected,
will, when Mr. Forbes' resignation ar
rives, probably in a week or so,
grant the official a leave of absence.
This being the case, Charles R.
Forbes will continue as superintend
ent of public works, plus all ihe other
positions which emanate from the
office. The salary will go on, and it
is expected that W. R. Hobby will con
tinue as acting superintendent of pub
lic works and acting chairman of the
harbor board ad finitum.

Team And Wagon
One Horse Killed, Another ITurt,
And Driver Sent To Hospital As
Result Of Runaway In Kuiaha
Through the breaking of a brake
on a wagon hcnvlly laden with pine
Apples, a serious runaway occured In
the Kulahn homestead district a week
ago laxt Monday. The outfit was the
property of the Haiku Cooperative
AsHodHtlon. As a renult one horse
was killed, another badly hurt, and
the driver, a Hawaiian mimed Iniaole
I'alu, Injured so seriously that he Is
still in the Pala hospital. He Is suffer
ing from divers cuts and bruises.
The accident occured on a grade at
the foot of hlch is a very sharp turn
acropt a bridge. The team was un
able to make the turn and crashed
through the rail into the ravine some
fifteen feet U low taking Ihe wagon
with them. That the driver was not
killed Is considered almost a miracle.
Advertising The War
It has been truly said that only a
small percentage of the people act as
the result of Intellectual processes,
and bo it la to a large nmjorlty of the
population that the advertising of the
country's present alms, conditions and
necessities must be addressed the
great mass or well disposed, easy-going,
entirely unaroused men and wo
inent of our big cillea and the couutry
sides. To them must the issues of
the war be advertised as iiwch of
necessity as the advantages or a cer
tain make of motor car or breakfast
food must be advertised to prospective
consumers. These people, who must
be aroused, must be approached by
"the outward and visible sign" by the
most direct attack on their eyes and
ears the parading bands, the march
ing troops and the appealing posters.
England did it. England finally
made the wide and varied advertising
of the war a distinct part of the work,
to the immediate betterment of enlist
ments, and 'he arousing and enl'ghten
ment and guidance of those who could
not enlist; and we need just that here,
where the actualities of war are not
with us to open our eyes. It is not
enough that our men and boys go to
wont and give their services and
their lives; we have got to be in the
war as a nation, and as individuals
with our hearts and souls, and that
this may be, everyone must under
It is not a complicated appeal that
must be made in this campaign of
education. The Issues are simply:
we are at war, at war to uphold the
right and to down the most heinous
wrong that the world has ever seen.
That is all. It is so great that it is
But when that is done there la an
other thing that has got to be advertis
ed, the power that every man and wo
men has to help along by showing
enthusiasm. Under the conditions of
the war we cannot have the soul stir
ring If heart-breaking spectacle of men
marching to the front, but the men
parade now and then a little com
pany goes by with a band at its head
and a group of new recruits stepping
proudly if irregularly behind them,
but the hand clapping is absent, the
bit of recognition, of encouragement,
that would come from ringing applause
is denied, and every block that such
a parade goes unencouraged, and al
most unnoticed, deters men from join
ing the colors.
Cannot we help by putting just a
little bit of enthusiasm into what is
being done? The most e very-day
business needs enthusiasm, the most
faithful employee works better for a
bit of commendation. "The smallest
service is repaid by thanks." Can't
we show the men that we are back
of them by giving them encourage
ment in the only way we can? Fame
saw a company of marines swing by
one day not long ago. About twenty
people lounged to the curb, not one
of them lifted his hat, not one ap
plauded. A woman faced them and
asked, a bit fchakilly, "Can't anyone
