THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, APRIL, 5, 1918.
Thank God For Balch
Thank God for a man like Jack
Balch. Pray God that the Bplnless
imitation humans who have the ef
frontery to call themselves Amer
icans and voted to dodge the issue
raised by the charges against that
proven Prussian sympathizer, Louis
Weinzheimer, manager of Lahaina
plantation, are soon brought to Bee
that they can not serve God and
Mammon. They can not worship
gold and Liberty at one and the same
time. These are of the breed that
piake islaves wlhether cfr not they
born In this country they should have
seen the light first as German serfs
of the Hohenzollern.
It is the lasting shame of Hawaii
this action of the stockholders of the
Pioneer Sugar Company. Seventeen
thousand and some hundred shares
voted in favor of Weinzheimer. Three
thousand and some hundred showed
that they had not bowed the knee to
the brazen image of the Kaiser for
fear that they would loso a few dirty
What a contemptible exhibition it
was that meeting. No wonder that
with such things loose among us, the
Hun crowed aloud when told that our
country would enter the war and
laughingly said that "The Yankee
will never fight, he thinks too much
of his pocket book." No wonder
when the sloth and peacefulness of
the last few decades has spawned
such things as these that even the
most optlsmistic among us look for
ward with doubt and anxiety to the
future of these islands.
On the other hand there is Jack
Balch. He is a he-male beyond a
doubt. He traps the sycophantic
committee in a lie and says so. He
turns on Manager Bull of pro-German
lings in the past If not in the
present and calls him by his name
right out in the meeting "Cowardly
dog" is the term Jack Balch uses.
Let us see how many words Mr. Bull
takes to explain that he is not at all
what Mr. Balch called him. Hilo
If Secretary Lane is even, consider
ing a trip to Hawaii this summer, let
us extend to him the most cordial of
Invitations to make up his mind in
the affirmative. Mr. Lane is an able
secretary of the interior, a splendid
American, one of the bralnest mem
bers of the cabinet, and he is called
upon to pass upon a multitude of Ha
waii matters. Nothing could be
more beneficial to Hawaii just now
than a visit from this western stal
wart and an investigation by him of
some of the problems with which his
office must deal. Star-Bulletin.
The Third Liberty Loan
The pinch of real warfare is going
to make itself felt with the raising
of the Third Liberty Loan, the cam
paign, for which will open on this
coming Saturday. We have talked
a lot, some of us, about our patriot
ism, our willingness to serve our
country, our determination to "see
it through." Here then is our chance.
It is going to come hard for Hawaii,
both Territory and Island, to see this
loan through. It is going to mean
more than "doing our bit". It is go
ing to mean doing our very best,
pinching, saving, sacrificing our per
sonal comforts, our personal welfare
even, that the money may be raised.
Deep Into our pockets we will have to
go. The things we counted on will
have to be foregone, the pleasures
dispensed with; the clothes we be
lieved we needed, will have to wait.
All this is coming hard, for remem
ber, it is not alone the acual amount
of money put into this loan, that is
going to count, but the amount of
money you DO NOT put Into unneces
,lt has been !said over and ovefn
again, since this war started, but It
cannot be said to often, that when
we buy unneeded articles we enter
directly into competition with Uncle
Sam, who is "in the labor and material
markets of the world as a preferred
customer. This is elementary econ
omics, but we would do well to re
member it Save and buy Liberty
bonds. Save and buy thrift stamps.
To buy the bonds and the stamps is
Important but to SAVE, SAVE, SAVE
all the time now, is vital to the winn
ing of the war. Therefore, SAVE.
