(Continued from Page One.)
Before the entry of the United States in the war, the attitude of
many among us w as to look on the war as something of a sporting event.
There were those who sided with the Central Powers, and there were
others who sided with the Allies. Both partisans had their reasons for the
position they took, and both were insistent on the righteousness of their
point of view. In this ante-war discussion the invasion of
Belgium was hotly denounced by one side only to be defended by the
other as having been done for good reasons.
Now after a period of somewhat strained neutrality the United
States has entered the war, and among the many reasons for this step, Mr
Wilson includes that of defending democracy from the assaults of the
Prussian military autocracy. With millions of our countrymen lined up
in defense of the flag a new situation has developed. Out and out
Americans would denounce any one who docs not uphold Mr. Wilson's
war policy, as a traitor to the country, but the war partisan feeling long
fostered by the pre-war days of uncertain neutralitv will not die over
night, but linger on, ethically outlawed, though it may be.
Remote as this Territory is from the scenes of war and war activi
ties, the seriousness of the situation is not yet completely realized. To
some the fact of the war having been entered into contrary to the ad
vice of George Washington about entangling foreign Alliances, is a
justifiable excuse for lukewarmness and contrariness.
The fact that Mr. Wilson was forced to draw the sword in the de
fence of American lives and American property against the German
policy of rightfulness on the high seas as practised by German sub
marines is by these of our countrymen looked on as somewhat em
barrassing but not provocation enough for setting aside its policy of
peace, and as an issue that might somehow be temporized as Norway or
Holland and other neutrals have temporized over the sinking of mer
chant shipping and the killing of seamen in the war ravaged seas of
Europe for the sake of peace. After all peace is very much to be de
sired ; all things considered, it is only human to give anything but not
everything for peace.
With the call to arms, the sons of our neighbors and even some of
our relatives have left their peaceful callings, to don the habiliments of
the warrior, on their way to the blood soaked battlefields of Europe
to tight the battles of the Republic. This of itself ought to make us lay
aside our petty differences and the least we could do is to root for the
home team. For in all seriousness they are going to light for us (the
sorry stay at home) to defend us from unseen war terrors reaching
forth to seize us and to engulf us in its horrors, and the very least we
should do is to be loyal to the cause for which the boys from home are
. going forth to battle, and to die if need be.
In these times of trial, before the casualty lists begin to appear in
nrint. we should drop all our small differences, look to the safety of
the nation as a whole and stand solidly behind that. It is true no armed
enemy is nearer than ten thousand miles from the shores of this iern
tory, but nevertheless the war menace is in the air. Eet no one harbor
any thought comforting to the enemy of the nation, least when we rind
the names of those we know written on the casualty lists we be shamed
for not haviiifif supiorted morally at least the detenders of the nation
Let no voice be heard in the land save that of cheer and faith in the
cause for which the youth of this sea-born Territory are gathering to
battle for the common good.

lias arranged that the ladies shall

kuapoko unite in this unit, bring their
lunch and tea is served by the Semin

of the shipment to Honolulu from Ka
hulul consisted of 120 nightingales,
2S suits of pajamas, 12 pillows, 22 eye
bandages, 12 wash cloths, and 6 pairs

A very timely and important lesson along Food Conservation lines
can be gleaned from the following taken from the Country Gentleman :
Suppose you were to read such an advertisement as this in your
daily paper :
For sale, for cash on delivery, fat for frying, $4.05 a pound. Goose-
fat. $3.36 a pound. Duck fat lA pound, SI. 1.5. halted goose leg VMc
each. Larded goose breast, $2.08 per pound. Fresh fowls, $1.01 per
pound and up. Young country laying hens, $3.32 each. Well-fed,
snow-white Emden giant geese, $11.01 to $19.00 each. Horseflesh, 53
to 86 cents a pound.
These are exact quotations taken from advertisements in German
newspapers during last June. Of course the advertisements are ad
dressed more particularly to the rich. Even horseflesh has become a
luxury beyond reach of the common people. Evidently the scarcity ol
fats has not been exaggerated in reports trom other sources.
The agitation started by Delegate Kuhio against putting the Nat
ional Guard of Hawaii in the stay-at-home class seems to have borne
fruit, for the latest wireless news received indicates that the Guard is
to be mustered into the National Army very soon. The drafting of men !
for the army from this Territory waits on the completion of the regis
tration lists of Oahu and of the County of Hawaii. Very soon the
boys will be marching away, and with that act will come home the real
ization that the nation is at war.

The Territorial Food Commission is handing out to the public some
advice on what to eat and where to put the brakes on the eating habit.
A perusal of the official leaflet gives the impression that the eating
restrictions are intended for Caucasians only and those who have ac
quired the eating habits of that class. The Asiastics, by far the largest
element of our population, are left to enjoy their bowls of rice and tish
unwarned of the dangers of a food shortage to arise from unrestrained
ly satisfying the cravings of a normal appetite.
