Book Early For
Record Crowds Likely To Tax Inter
Island Boats To Capacity Use
Of Early Boats Advised
Honolulu, May 29 People on the
outside islands who plan to attend
the Territorial Fair in Honolulu, June
10 to 15, are being advised this week
by the Fair Commission to make
passejnger reservations as early as
possible on the Inter-Island vessels,
as information received hero yester
day is that reservations already made
for boats arriving here June 8 and 9
have almost reached capacity.
In fact, many will find it advisable
to come by the boats arriving in Ho
nolulu the middle of the week prior
to the Fair, and if a large number of
tight seers from Hawaii, Maul and
Kauai hope to see the Fair at all
lhiy may have to eom- over immedi
ately after June 1.
The Fair's transportation commit
tee endeavored several months ago
to arrange fur special steamers to
end fom the other islands, to accom
odate the crowds, but the severe
thipping shortage which affects all
tte world today is equally stringent
in its limitations on island shipping,
and the extra facilities could not be
Reports from the outside islands
'.ndicates that, transportation permit
ting, record-breaking crowds will vis
it Honolulu during Fair week, and
holels and boarding houses are mak
ing provision for their accomodation
In a manner entirely at variance
with any demonstration that has been
held in the city in many years, the
Territorial Fair appeals to island
folk in every walk of life and the
men of every occupation. It is in
tended especially to attract the farm
ers, large and small, the stock grow
ers, the housewives who are serious
ly interested in new ways of food
saving, and business men interested
in the development of home industries.
It combines practical education and
wholesome, clean amusement in new
and novel forms. The commission is
hoping it will prove popular and
satisfying in every respect to those
who come to study and learn as well
as the greater number who will come
to be amused.

A correspondent of The New York
Times has unearthed a little blue
pamphlet of twenty pages printed in
Germany in ISO !. after the Kaiser,
then a comparatively young man, had
dismissed Ilishmarck from his coun
cils, but before be and Junkerthum
had gained that complete dominion
over the minds of his subjects so
apparent in the last decade. This
pamphlet is entitled: "Caligula; a
Study in Rinnan Caesar-madness." It
was written by Ludwi.!; Quidiile, a
German democrat and historian, at
present a member of the Bavarian
Landtag, whose only excuse for its
publication was the extreme neatness
with which it fitted the cloak of Cali
gula upon the shoulders of Wilhelm
The pamphlet does not mention the
Kaiser or make reference to anything
but the subject in hand, Caligula, the
most notoriously brutal, blood-thristy
and capricious of all that long line
of mad Roman despots v.ho ruled the
world and exacted religious adoration
Rut its chi'racteriz.ition of Caligula
so exactly described the young Em
peror of Germany that at liist the
censor prohibited it. Almost immedi
ately, however, lie -;is compelled to
rescind his ruling, because the author
insisted be had written about Cali
gula alone, and the censor didn't care
to recognize the likeness ollicially.
Thereafter the little book ran into
thirty editions or more, since the
German people of that day were so
anxious to learn all they could about
t at ancient Roman tyrant!
t;t!erula was called to the throne
while still : young man to succeed
his grandfather, the Emperor Tiberi
us. The people wondered about him;
they didn't know him well. Hut they
expected, of course, that in his yor.lii
and inexperience he would relieve
Marco, the famous Minister-ot State
and Prefect of the Guards, to whose
wisdom and guidance the imperial
house was already greatly indebted.
Instead Mateo soon fell into disfavor
and was dismissed. Caligula assumed
complete control of the affairs of his
empire, which comprised almost the
whole civilized world, and establish
ed a purely personal regime.
And then he became obsessed with
the desire lor military aggrandize
ment. Hut lie reigned during a period
of external peace which gave little
opportunity for beligerent campaigns.
Hence he played at war and executed
the most elaborate and ridiculous
army manoeuvcrs. He became the
thunderer, like Jove; the war-lord of
Finally he demanded divine adora
tion, and though the Romans of the
day recognized his derangement, they
hadn't the courage to rid themselves
of him, even though his reign sub
jected them to the most outrageous
tyrannies and cruellies, while the
German hordes without were knock
ing at the door of the empire.
The very word Kaiser it must not
be forgotten, is the German corrup
tion of Caesar, as Czar is a like cor
ruption in Rusitin form. And every
Kaiser, Czar or Caesar since the
great Julius who founded the order
has dreamed more or less seriously
of his mission to rule the world in
accordance with the traditions of his
caste. It is not at all surprising,
therefore, that in our modern Caesar
there should crop out that peculiar
insanity to which his ancient fore
bears were subject Caesar-madness.
Suppose therefore, we call the Kai
ser Caligula. Certainly no one in his
senses in this day and age would
hestitate to sacrifice his all to over
whelm a Caligula, to stive his country
men, tlie members of his family and
himself from being dragged through
the streets at the chariot wheels of
such a conqueror. The ordeal which
the Kaiser has in store for him and
his, if not quite so frank a display
of the principle that might makes
right ,is even more brutal and oppres
sive in the long run. If he can't fight,
let him save, save, save, that he may
invest to the maximum the fruits of

All that remain. intact of the his

was Stolen last autumn from the
tomb in the Kawaiahao churchyard,
is a silver lear, part of the name plate
and the silver ornament which rested
on th-i top ot the crown. The rest
has been melted down into a single
bar of silver.
)euty Sheriff J. W. Asch returned
this doming from Key West, Florida,
where he went to recover the crown.
His story or the chase, which finally
ended in the arrest of Albert Gerbode
and Tan! Payne, electricians in the
submnrine flotilla which was station
ed at Pearl Harbor, and the recovery
of tlv stolen property, throws much
new light on the robbery.
Sheriff Asch says that both Ger
bode anil Payne absolutely deny tak
ing any ot the skulls and bones from
the tomb, as was reported at the time
of thf robbery. He says that both the
naval authorities and himself are in

that others entered the tomb and stole

A southern newspaper contains the
following item: "Joe Odom was ac
quitted of violating the prohibition
law, and was sentenced to pay a fine
of $100 or serve three months 'at hard
labor; the balance of the fine to be
ui-ip.viJed during good behavior on

Specifically, let him earn more and
spend less and with his enhanced
surplus multiply his investment in
Liberty Bonds, with the proceeds of
which are forged the bars which con
fine our Caesar-Maniacs to the padd
ed cells of oblivion. The third Liber
ty Loan, will give every American
the chance of a lifetime to back up
his opinion of Caligula with cash.
