OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
Another Community Tree
The Community Christmas Tree
will be something quite out of the
ordinary line ;nnd the plans are now
so well in hand as to insure an un
doubted success. A larpe natural
tree, brilliantly lighted and beautiful
ly decorated, and choral slnKinK of
Christmas carols and hymns; these
will be the essential factors; but
there will be many IntcrcstinK and
There will he fine choruses by (he
Hawaiian choir; similar rendering!!
from the Ilaole choir; motion songs
from the little Japanese tots in their
kimono costumes; illustrated carols
set forth in living p'rture illustrations
done by the little children of the Li
hue Union Sunday School; some very
characteristic. Filipino children's sing
ing, etc., together with some really
inspiring mass singing. All at the
armory Sunday even-ng, Ilec. 23 and
nil free. A voluntary contribution
will be taken for the Red Cross. Car
Inter-Island Banishes Liquor
The Inter-Island Steam Navigation
Company has issued an order Hint will
meet with the commendation of every
person in Hawaii who is i.n favor
of that better mode of living which
avoids indulgence in spirituousliquors.
An order has been issued by the as
sistant manager of the Inter-Islaiid
forb'dding the sale of liquor upon any
of their vessels plying between the
islands. No equivocation, no excuse,
no hesitation. Henceforth no l'quor
will he sold on the Inter-Island ves
sels. It is not necessary to speak
directly of conditions which have pro
vailed in the past. We are concern
ed with the future. And the manage
ment of the Inter-Island steamers
have banished from their steamers the
sale of liquor. The Tribune feels
the company has thus gained many
friends. We believe that their act
will be upheld by the public at large,
and that the volume of travel will be
increased, rather than diminished.
This company has added very materi
ally to the prosperity of every island
in the group. There have been oc
casions when complaints have been
made by individuals concerning the
service, but the public at large knows
that the company has had to meet
many trying conditions.
This new rule will win many friends
for the Inter-Island company. Hilo
The Land Situation
That was a wholesome rebuke given
by Senator Myers of Montana on the
land situation, in these islands. What
can we offer to these young people
as compared with the ordinary in
spiring chances open to youth on the
maiuland? If land is not open to
them what can they have in view
but a clerkship, a small store or an
automobile stage, or, on the other
hand, a day wage or a tenantry on a
Senator Myers hurts the priri-j ot
those of us who have been maintain
ing '.hat we have a real bit of true
America in our islands. He notes
the lack of middle-class owners of
land and builders of homes, com
pares us to Russia and Mexico, and
warns us that the 6ame lack in those
countries has produced the present
conditions of revolution, strife and
anarchy. He says our land conditions
are more like those of a monarchy
than a republic. Does he do well to
score us thus? He does well. We
must acknowledge that he has spoken
bravely and truly. The Friend.
"Circumstances Alter Cases7"
The President recently addressed
Congress upon the necessity for the
unification of railways, looking to
better, more economical, and more
efficient management. Yet a few
years ago when the railroad com
panies wanted to do that very thing,
their managers were denounced as
plotters and schemers against the
public good. It proves once more
that men of thought and initiative
often have to fight to introduce, to
attain, and to maintain, efficient busi
ness methods. Hilo Daily Tribune.
Its Own Reward
Chief Justice Robertson in a state
ment given to the press of Honolulu
deplores the fact that the bench is
being "dragged more and more fre
quently into shabby politics." He
also records his belief that judges re
ceive no gratitude or appreciation for
the work they do. The learned juris'
is probably right about the last. It
is doubtful if judges are properly re
garded in this world for all they do,
but for that matter which one of us
is? The judge should remember that
judges are supposed to be well paid
for their jobs and that in addition to
the money they receive their ways
are made easy in many oilier direc
tions. Incidentally they have always
at hand the possibility of so living
and doing that like virtue their
jobs are their own reward. Hawaii

Editor Maui News:
Arrangements are in process of be
ing made by the Territorial Market
ing Division to pay immediately on
receipt of Maui Red beans at the
market $3.00 per bag on account. It
is proposed that the beans will then
be sold as the market will absorb
them and the final account sales
rendered when all of the beans are
It is estimated that a cash pay
ment on account to the grower as
soon as he ships his beans will en
courage him to get them to market at
the earliest possible moment.
There will be no charge for storage
at the Territorial market. There
will, however, be the other usual
charges. All beans shipped to the
market should bo carefully graded
and fumigated before shipment to
They should be shipped in good
sound bags to prevent loss and shrink
age in transit.
If this arrangement is consummat
ed, due noticewill begiven to the press
and to all known shippers of beans.
We would thank you to give this mat
ter as much publicity thru your paper
as possible, because the Food Ad
ministration is desirous of obtaining
the largest possible price for the
grower for h's beans, so that he will
be encouraged to grow more beans
The Maui crop of beans will not last
the Islands more than 3 months if
they go into consumption immediately
and take the place of imported beans,
which it is desired they should do.
By the Territorial Marketing Division
of the Government handling this pro
duce it will tend to stableize prices
and eliminate what is commonly
known as the speculator and unnec
essary middle man.

I received your letter a short time
ago and was more than glad to get
it as it was the first I received since
we left. In fact it was received on
Columbus Day and I hadn't received

to hear of Chas. Dillingham's death.
I would like to tell you all about
our trip and the country we are in but
we are not allowed to give any news

am feeling fine and have put on a

beautiful country; where we are locat

see the little villages below us in the
valley, and in the morning It is cer
tainly a pretty sight to see a small
village in the valley, all the small
houses showing through the trees and
the slate roofs shining in the sun and
the smoke curling up from the chim

mostly fagots and small branches of

people have kneeled for probably
generations and worn them down.
I am learning the language very

we come back.
We are not near any place where

tastes different from the same stuff

"Front And Center"
All of the registrars for the selec
tive draft, who were on duty recently,
will be called back into service on
January 7, to assist in getting the
"questionaires" filled out properly.
It is assumed that one or two will at
tend at the booths each day.
Sheriff Crowell yesterday received
the following wireless from Captain
Francis J. Green in regard to the mat
ter: "Make public tjle f.ic that to assist

January 7 all registrars who were

A Blithesome Profession
From a paper read in San Francis
co: "The true funeral director Is serious
but not gloomy; dignified, but not
morose; gentle, but not fawning; self
possest, but not self-conscious; quiet
ly masterful, but not bossy; alert,
but not fussy; watchful, but not ner
ous; pathetic, but not lacrimose; a
k'udly, unassuming master of cere
monies." Boston Herald.
