some dry clothes and "rest up."

all right, but that was the last seen

duty of everybody in the present war

principles. This banner was, "upon
advice, taken down.
The gratifying news is brought that
any possibility of an open strike is
past and that all differences will be
determined by the courts.
The trouble at Hana, between the
plantation and the contract growers
of cane, started several months ago,
when dissatisfaction was expressed
by the latter with the agreements
under which they were growing cane
for the mill. It developed in time that
some of the growers had no contracts
at all, and were operating under ver
bal agreements oaly. However, they
nil agreed to make common cause of
the matter, and a near-strike came
about. In course of time matters
quietted down, and the questions in

Leadership Of Lincoln
"The Leadership of Lincoln" was
the sermon topic at the Makawao
Union Church Sunday morning. The
Rev. A. Craig Bowdlsh said in part
that there are three phases of Lin
coln's leadership which - stand out
with treat clearness. First, mat
any faithful home may furnish a lead
er of the neoole. The log camn in
which he was born and which is now
oreserved as a memorial is a symbol
of democracy and the worth of hu
manity. Second. Jthat his mother,
Nancy Hanks, was a large factor In
Lincoln's early history and getting
started right in life. His fundament
al principles of morality and Justice
he ealned from her. She was from
an obscure family, but a woman of
noble purpose which she was able to
impart to her son. She represents
the type of friendship, of comradeship
which gives right Inspiration and
direction to young life. Third, that
as the years go by there is a greater
appreciation of moral and spiritual
leadership of (Lincoln. He has a
sane and simple analysis of life that
rings true in all his varied activities,
Whether splitting rails or keeping
store or studying law or as captain
in the Blackhawk war or -in public
speaking. For high principle he was
willing to fail of election to tho legis
lature. It was the same when
Stephen A. Douglas defeated him for
the United States Senate. He was
inflexible for the right. In time the
nation saw it and claimed his leader
Other men have been in high favor
for a time, but have been forgotten
later. Not so Lincoln. No one else
perhaps has been so much quoted
during this Great War by the British
leaders. Britain herself has chosen
the leader for her hour of crisis from
a little known Welsh home. Mr.
Lloyd George has time and again
quoted from and referred to Lincoln's
career and his writings. Lincoln's
patience, his calm insight, his sense
of Justice and mercy, were never
more appreciated than today when
the spirit, the morale, the noble pur
pose of a race or people mean so
much in the international questions
and struggle of the' world.
"The Grestett Thing In The World"
The text for the sermon, preached
by Rev. J. Charles Villiers, at the
Church of the Good Shepherd, on
Sunday morning, was taken from the
epistle for the Sunday before Lent,
I Corinthians, chapter 13, as he said,
a remarkable chapter, in a remark
able epistle. The text was the last
verse of the chapter: "And now
abideth faith, hope, love, these three;
and the greatest of these is love."
There are some texts of scripture that
are infinitely greater in their own
simplicity of statement than any ex
position of them, by modern priest
'or prophet, could ever make them.
That might, perhaps, be said of any
text chosen from this thirteenth chap
ter of St. Paul's first epistle to the
Corinthians, whose teachings if sin
cerely believed in, and practiced, by
every member of the Church would
have A. WfMldorflll. mnral effort nn a
multitude of men and women, who.
at present, pay no serious heed to the
Church. In writing as he did in this
chapter, St. Paul beautifully exempli
fied his own teaching, for the treat
ment which had been accorded him,
by not a few members of the Corin
thian church, had been as might well
have turned his thought from "faith,
hopei and love" to Idoubt, despair,
and hatred. The secret of his will
ingness, and power, to write as ho
did, is in the love of which he writes.
To feel love in our hearts, is to
be able to express it in our lives, In
word, and in deed. When love is in
the soul, God is, and when God is in
the soul, then the spirit of His will,
is, also. It is when we Steel our
hearts against love that we become
wrong-headed, as well as wrong-hearted.
