" ' fllOV MUCH IS MY SHAKE Of WAR COST?
If everybody iaiil his share of the cost of the war, no more or no
,1-ss, the following tahle will show the percentage and amount that
families of different incomes should pay in taxes of Liberty l'.onds of
iliis year's cost of the war. The table is compiled from a pamphlet
recently issued by the Hankers' Trust Company of New York :

Since there will be a certain number of slackers in this form of
duty as in others, no one should be afraid of going over the percentage
shown in the above table.
SPENDING MONEY TO SAVE MONEY
One of the most important things to be saved these days is man
power. No more can Maui afford to do things the slow way simply
to give a deserving voter a job. The deserving voters all have jobs
now that are worth while, or if they haven't UncleJSam isJikelyto be
.Minting)" knTnv The reason. There is a job these days for every man,
woman and child.
There is tangible evidence that our county supervisors are not
asleep to these facts. Road work which a few years ago was usually
done poorly by the pick and shovel method is now being done well, and
a hundred times faster by machinery. The sight of a tractor pulling
a road grader, and the whole outfit handled by three or four men, is
coming to be a commonplace sight. And the county roads are probably
in better condition today than they have ever been before.
The contracting of road maintenance to person's who have a special
ii:' crest in having the roads in best possible condition, has also proved
a big money-maker for the county. Nor has any voter been hurt in
.lis time-honored perquisite of signing a county salary warrant every
Of course the tractors, road graders, motor trucks, etc.', cost money,
and it costs money to maintain and operate them, but money so spent
.. . . .'I . t 1 I'l l a'
pays big in results accomplished under a uusiness-iiKe auminisirauon.
In the county of Hawaii they are evidently working along the same
lines. A modem oil heater and spreader for road building has just been
put in use up there which is said to do the work of several dozen
men under the old plan. Perhaps Maui could profitably invest in a
similar one. Almost anything that will save man-power these days is
a good investment.
There is llun propaganda at work on Maui. When you observe
a man or woman who a short time ago was earnestly working for the
Red Cross or investing in War Savings Stamps, suddenly grow luke
warm, it is up to you as a patriotic American to find out the cause, if
It is positively known that some person or persons on Maui are
. . ... . f f - 1...1V.j . -
iiisiiluously poisoning the minds ot some oi our peopic in inc interests
of Germany. The result has been apparent in a number of sections in
the dropping out of Red Cross work of women and girls formerly en
thusiastic helpers. Enough is known to show that this is no accident
to practically prove that fear in one form or another has in some man-
in t been instilled into their minds.
W hat is needed is proof. Y'ou may be able to help. If you hear
of any stories as reason for not supporting Red Cross work or other
war activities, even though they may seem absurd and childish, make
k your business to trace their origin if possible, and report what you
learn to some one connected with the Maui division of the Vigilance
Corps. You may be able to help remove from Maui a very positive
.ii-d real menace.
There is an alien enemy in Honolulu who has written a book that
the government has suppressed; who not only makes no secret of his
p-o-Germanisni, but has the affrontcry to strut the streets with his face
and moustache manicured to best of his ability in imitation of the
i-aiscr's; who has the nerve to attend a moving picture show based on
Ambassador Gerard's "My Four Y'cars in Germany," and then to de
fiantly leave in the midst of the performance.
And nothing has happened to him.
And in the face of such forbearance we arc told by Washington
that" wc arc "persecuting" our enemy aliens!
The Tioneer Mill Company is to be commended for its efforts to
make the Hoys' and Girls' Working Reserve mean something more to
the youngsters than just dull work. The picnic arranged for the Fourth
ol July,. with accompanying truck ride and abundance of good things
to cat, was thoroughly appreciated according to all reports. And this
appreciation will undoubtedly be shown in better work and a spirit of
loyalty than mere wages cannot buy.
George M. Reynolds, president of the Continental and Commercial
National Bank of Chicago, says: "If wc get to be a Nation of wise
savers we shall also be a Nation with a more certain business future."
Are you grateful that 2,000,000 of our boys, enlisted in our Army
and Navy, are giving us security at home? If you are, turn your
gratitude into War Savings Stamps.
It is cheaper to spend a lot of money to win the war than not to
I end your money as freely as our boys arc giving themselves.

THE POLICE AND THE AUTO LAW VIOLATOR
Following up the hint of the late grand jury the police department
is showing some praiseworthy activity in connection with violations of
the automobile ordinance. The matter of un-dimmed lights is getting
some attention and a few arrests have been made for speeding. But
1 ill there is room for improvement. Many of the so-called dimmers
fail to dim or safely deflect the light downward and there are daily and
tightly flagrant breaking of the speed limits.
In most places on the mainland if a motorist tries speeding in pres
cribed areas he is promptly overhauled by a motorcycle cop and taken
to a police station. The policeman has timed the offender with a
speedometer certified as accurate, and his testimony is all the evidence
necessary to convict. The same motorcycle cop watches for dangerous
Here on Maui it seems to require the setting of an elaborate trap
to catch a speeder, with an electric device concealed in a cane field, two
men and a stop-watch or two. The result is that the trap is only set
omcc or twice a year, and in the intervals everybody ruus as he pleases.
The police complain that they have not the time required to catch
automobile offenders and to attend to their other duties. If this is
i rue it is up to the supervisors to find out and to remedy the trouble.
