JUDB HERVEY'S TALK
IN THE MASONIC HALL
A Most Impressive Presentment Of The Problems
Of Today, With Reference To Past History
A Long Lecture That Was Enjoyed From Be
ginning To End And Everybody Wished It Was
A large gathering of central Maui
people crowded Ihe Mnsnnjc Hull, Ka
hului, Tuesday night to hoar Judge
llervey of Los Angeles, California,
.peak on the war. The Judge is a
high Mason and the local lodge open
ed lis door;! to the public to give all
an opportunity to listen to a most
patriotic talk on the part that our
Government must do to win the war.
Mr. Hugh Howell introduced the
speaker of the evening, staling that
the Maui lodge felt that it should
give the members of the community
an opportunity to hear Judge llervey
and, therefore, the lodge room was
thrown open to the public.
The Judge's theme for his evening
address was the finances of war. So
Maui audience for pome time has
listened with more interest than did
the people asseniblej to hear Judge
Hervey deliver a masterful account of
the importance of finance to win the
war. Tin Judge is a thorough student
of history as his listeners soon learn
ed and he had the attention of all
for more than two hours. He told of
the wonderful work of those assist
ing the llc.H Cross and thP.t their pro
dint was worth IGO.OOO.OOu each year.
That the Red Cross felt that this
work could not be duplicated for any
such expenditure. He lauded highly
the patriotic effort of all that were
giving their time and effort to such
The Judge spoke of the colossal
work of the Y. M. C. A., and how it
aided the boy from the time he en
tered the training camp until he was
in the front line of (he trenches. How
it guarded him from the temptations
Biirrounding camp3, how it gave him
recreation, how it served as a "liig
Hi-other" for the loyal American Sol
dier. Few of his listeners had realiz
ed that this wonderful organization
was such a vital force in the training
and care of the American fighting
men from the time it met them at the
start until they were wounded and
taken by the Red Cross. .
He emphasized the Importance of
the individual person doing Mr. share
or service for the Nation r.t this time.
The Government called each and ev
ery one to assert hiniBelf for his
of the finances of the na
tion the Judge said, "The general
ship of raising finances for a nation
at war are no less in importance than
the generalship of soldiers.. "A
State goes down to defeat through
a failure in its finances. "The cafety
of all we possess depends upon the
safety and integrity of the nation.
"Greece fell because the people of
wealth would not come to the support
of the nation."
"Wo have many lessons to draw
from early history that we must not
disregard at this time. Let us not
forget that without the support of all
we are in danger of losing all that
the Nation stands for in land and in
"The early history of our Country
brings to mind many financial experi
ences of the early Colonists. "The
success of raising money for the Am
erican Revolution was nothing less
than remarkable and we do not re
alize the important part that such
men as Morris, Franklin and Hamil
ton played. "As a matter of fact h-
story plays Hamilton a sorry trick.
He was a giant among men and it
was his wonderful executive ability
that assisted the Colonists to victor'
nv.l liberty. '
"For this early war we borrowed
money from Holland, France and a
little from Spain. We were unable
to raise money as a nation and de
pended upon the individual states for
men and money. If they failed to
assist, the nation as a whole could do
very little to support the armies and
to wage a successful war."
"Many methods were tried to raise
money; even to lottery; however, tin
wonderful genius of Hamilton was al
ways present and to him much credit
is due for the finance of the
country at the time and the final out
come of these debts which were all
met in full; much to the credit of the
The Judge discussed and told, with
exact figures, the successes of the Na
tion in raising money for the wars
down to the present. His familarity
with all the historical facts surround
ing the raising of funds for war pur
poses by the United States was fol
lowed most carefully by all present.
Seldom does one listen to such a
fluent speaker on such interesting
present day problems.
Judge Hervey pointed out the radi
cal change in the individual political
status of every citizen. "Now that
the Nation is at war we must give
all we have for the good of'the State,"
he said. "Our boys have been taken
away to face the hail of steel and we
must give nil that we have so that
the Nation will not fail. "The na
tion may, if it so desires, conscript
our wealth. "The state must be per
petuated and the individual cannot be
considered except for the good of all."
Explaining the methods used by the
country to raise finances, Judge Her
vey said, "There are two choices
open to the nation to raise funds
first; taxation, second; selling
bonds. For business reasons It is
best not to levy taxes for all the sup
port of the country at war. "This
would discourage and destroy bust
ness." "We have raised an enormous
sum of money so far." "We have at
ready raised more than the nation
spent in all the time since the revo
lution. "We hoped that the people
would do better with the War Saving
stamps than they did. "However, the
sale of these stamps has brought in
a great sum of money but the nation
needs more and thus we have this
sprint? the Third Liberty Loan."
"Wo will reap, some Denems irom
this war, the Judge said in closing.
"and America's part will be no small
one till the end." "We have always
enjoyed periods of prosperity after
every war that the United States has
ever engaged in and this one will be
the same. "We must bear in mind
that we are fighting for the same
principles for which we have waged
war before; in that we stand for de
mocracy for the people of the United
States of America." "Two forces are
at swords pointed; and although we
sometimes regret that it has come in
our time it was, nevertheless: cue
"We must determine now which we
shall have for the next five hundred
years Aristrocracy or the People,

each exhibit be accompanied with a
written explanation. For example, if
you have had success with a crop,

land, what fertilizer was used, what
time of year it was planted, what
poisons were used against pests, or
a,ny other point that will help your
neighbor to grow that crop success
fully. We hope for exhibits of desirable
types of live stock to help us all to
form an idea of what our live stock
should be. We want, especially, good
