Col. Charles J. McCarthy takes u) the reins as governor with the
good-will and confidence of the people of Hawaii generally. More
over he has heen fortunate in heginniiig his administration with an ac
quaintanceship with the Secretary of the Interior and thus in close
touch with the federal government.
Ciovernor McCarthy is no carpet-haggi r or w hining political hang-er-oii.
He is known and respected in these islands for what he is a
man with a mind of his own. who at the same time is level-headed,
clear headed, and fearlessly outspoken. It is asurtd that he will he
a truckler to nobody while at the same time he has shown his ability
end desire to work with anybody for the general good of Hawaii. When
President Wilson appointed Charles McCarthy he strengthened the
conhdence of the people of Hawaii in the sound judgment and honest
purpose of the national administration towards these islands.
SECRETARY LAXE OX IIOM ESTEADIXG
Secretary Lane takes no half-way stand on homesteading. Like
wise he insists that the lands of Hawaii shall produce every pound of
sugar of which they are capable. In short, he does ml believe that
homesteaders and sugar are essentially antipathetic. He has taken
steps which guarantee that no sugar lands will be idle while the world
is crying for food, but at the same time he has opened the way for the
honalide seeker of a home to not simply secure one, but he has indicated
that the whole strength of the administration, both national and terri
torial, will be used to help that man to make good.
Secreary J.ane has held out a challenge or perhaps. a warning when
he declares "If this territory is to be and continue an intenjral part
of our nation it must live in the constant thought that men arc woven
into the nations fabric by beiih identified physically, morally, spiritual
ly and industrially with its life 'This part of our common
country should tjivc an opportunity to the man of capacity and enerj
to secure a home for himself, a home off 'which he can earn his own
living, a home in "which he can raise his own family, a home in "which
.wlf -respect wdl be developed, out of which can come sound judgments
as to the welfare of the nation. A people with spirit and independent
judgment, laws that are just and wisely administered, lands as widelv
distributed as is computable with their hiihest use these are essentials
in our scheme of national life.
Secretaiy Lane is a big man. lie has had wide experience in
handling big things. His judgment is generally sound. And he has
impressed the people of Hawaii with an appreciation of these facts.
There will be those who do not agree with his conclusions, but there
are none who heard or have read his address at the inauguration of
Governor McCarthy a few days ago who will fear for the welfare of
the Islands at his hands.
The mystery of the workings of the military mind is always with
these days, and as ever, is past finding out.
The latest example of this is in the following notice published last
Saturday by the naval authorities:
Io Whom It May Concern:
"1 .mi authorized bv the Secretary of the Navy to pay One Tlmus-
nd ($UKX).(X)j Dollars to any person who furnishes authentic inform

GEXTLEMEX, MAUI THAXRS YOU!
A notable thing occurred m Maui this week. A grand jury was
impaneled which actually has done some of the things that grand juries
re supposed to do hut seldom do do. 1 his Maui grand jury examined
the cases ot law violation brought lietore it by the prosecuting attorney
and the police, and returned the usual indictments.
Here is where most grand juries stop. Put this particular jury
had hardly got started. It took up the matter of the dangerous Las
hama landing, which it had been particularly requested to do by the
tourl, and made recommendations concerning it. I hen it seems to have
started with a muck-rake and gone right through the county govern
ment with the result that a number of unpleasant things were exposed.
It is true that none of these things can be considered of very mom
entous importance. No hot-beds of corruption were uncovered. No
serious reflection is cast upon any head of department. Put the light
of inquiry did disclose evidences of a relaxed discipline that was not
If the recommendations of the grand jury are carried out, one or
Iwo county employees stand to lose their jobs. That will be all, except
that it is safe to say there will be a general bracing up in a number of
departments that will be salutary.
It is not what the investigating body actually found, that is most
important. It is what it possibly prevented from happening that really
THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE SCHOOL QUESTION
The Maui News has heretofore pointed out the desirability from
the standpoint of national unity, tjiat all foreign language grade schools
should be barred from the United States. In commenting upon the
regulations now in force in some slates prohibiting the use of any but
the hnghsli language in any schools or public gatherings, the Mar-Pul
letin, of Honolulu says:
"The war has brought sharply home to the United States how the
persistcnceol loreign languages m some localities has held back thorough
Americanization of the immigrants. Hawaii has the problem in an
acute form, and some day we may expect to see a territory-wide rule
abolishing loreign-language grade schools. Such a rule would greatly
strengthen our public schools ot the lower grades m the 'melting-pot
There is nothing unreasonable in this. Any nation has the right
to protect itself from any influence not calculated to further its own
unity. Children who are taught during their most impressionable years
in a toreign language come to even think in that language and it
doubtful if they ever get entirely away from the habit. The serious
l ess of this becomes apparent in times of national crisis when the very
existence of the nation may depend upon the unity of its populace.
HAWAII'S COMIXG FIRST CROP TOURISTS
More than one third of Secretary Lane's address last Saturday
uas devoted to Hawaii's scenery and climate as a territorial assest
I: was not at all the usual tlowery rhapsody m which visitors to the J
lands are wont to indulge for their ow n gratiheation or to tickle the ear
of their hosts. It was much more than that. It was a strong and con
vincing pointing out of Hawaii's destiny. That our climate, our sea
shores, our mountains should be placed ahead of our sugar and pine
anoles in a cold consideration of dollars and cents, does not sound so
wild as it once did. And when a man of Mr. Lane's hard common
si use drives home the same old story with sledge-hammer force w
,-;re forced to think perhaps the promotion committee has been rigl

great that he will not have a chance."

May Start Pig Club
i Continued Xrom Tage One.)
Fassoth Is Urging
Planting Of Gardens
nish the pigs to the boys and girls
of Maui in case such a pig club is or
ganized here. He will he willing, he
says to sell the pigs to the children,
taking their notes in payment. The
pigs supplied would be high grade
Berkshire or Hampshire breeds and
would be delivered just after they
were weaned. It is very probable
that other breeders will join in the
movement if it is started.
Goes Well With Gardening
The fact that gardening has made
such great progress on Maui makes
the pig club idea particularly feasible.
Many of the children through their
gardens now havo sufficient feed from
Hvoet .potato tops, cull vegetables;
etc., together with kitchen waste
ivailable to easily feed a pig, and to
make such use of this refuse is the
best possible kind of conservation,
The plan is to have a committee
appointed of tho Maui County Fair &
Racing Association to organize the
club. This committee would start by
enrolling the applicants. Those who
could show that they could properly
care for a pig would be recommended
and would be permitted to buy a pig
apiece, giving their personal notes
for them. At the end of six or eight
months (or whatever time should be
decided upon) the pigs would be
brought to centrals points where they
would be weighed and judged. Suit
able prizes would perhaps be offered
to the owners of the best pigs.
Warning that Hawaii is facing a se
rious rood shortage and that every
resident of the district should plant
gardens at once was given a few days
ago by John I'assolh, manager of Ki
pahulu plantation, Maui, to 400 res
idents of the Kipahulu section as
sembled at the plantation hall.
Fassoth has offered land rent free
and will also give seed free to all
prospeel ive gardeners who will first
rlivr ihe land and demonstrate their
determination to plant a garden. He
distributed seed some time ago, but
most of ihe people did not heed the
advice then given
