can easily guess that this editorial

What Helps One Helps All
Agitation, for harbor "preparedness"
if. stirring up other partn of the is
lands besides Honolulu. The Maui
News in its issue of last Friday
quotes nt some length from the state
ment by J. H. Rosseter, director of
U. S. Shipping operations, published
in the Star-Bulletin .and asks: "Has
Maui nothing to expect from a great
boom of trade in the Pacific?"
Maui has a great deal to expect
from the trade boom after the war.
So have Hawaii and Kauai. From
eml to end of the Hawaiian group
there will be almost immediate bene
fits from the boom in the Pacific
provided the ports and cities are
ready to take care of the business
It is logical to expect Honolulu to
tret most of the increased shipping.
Rut the. results of that Increase! ship
ping the vastly increased freight
and passenger traffic will benefit all
the islands. Honolulu would be
short-sighted to plan for harbor and
wharf improvements merely to help
out this city. What helps any city
or town, in Hawaii helps Honolulu,
and vice versa.
Increased business for one is ben
efit to all. And all the people of all
the islands should get together and
work for harbor and wharf improve
ments in every port where these are
declared necessary by competent au
"ority. If it is a matter of territorial
construction, then all the communi
ties should be willing to stand their
equitable share of territorial appro
priation, through taxo3 or bond is
r.ued. If it is a matter of federal con
struction, then all the communities
should back heartily such a request
in Washington as the federal engine
ers have decided is justifiable. Star
Bulletin. One Language
Speaking of languages in the
schools, no one can hear the hybrid
poloyglot of tho streets without the
immediate conviction that tho most
important thing is to teach the cor
rect speaking and writing of English.
That is, English with American mo
difications (in another half century
we may be calling it the American
French, Spanish, Russian all well
enough; all desirable. After the war
there is almost certain to be a re
establishment of German courses,
optional with the student. But far
more important for Hawaii than the
teaching of foreign languages is the
perfection of our own tongue. Some
of the draft officers at Fort Arm
strong were reduced almost to des
pair at the apparent stupidity of
draftees brought before them young
men who had at least several years
of "study" in tho grammar schools.
Rut it was not stupidity it was in
ability to express themselves in Eng
lish, or even clearly to understand
the questions. They were inarticul
ate, almost cjumb. With the English
language thoroughly mastered, the
first pre-requisite to success is won.
Rut the ex-schoolboy of Hawaii who
speaks defectively and writes poor
English, in seven cases out of ten
has mastered no language, not even
that of his nncestors. He is forever
A graduate of Kamehameha schools
who has achieved substantial success
in his own particular vocation paid
the other day, "When I was at Ka
mehameha, we had a club where no
thing but English could be spoken. If
we spoke Hawaiian, we were fined. I
never progressed faster nt anything
in my life than in learning to speak
English fluently and correctly. I
have always appreciated that train
On The Other Islands
Urges Free Port For Honolulu
J. I). Mclnerny, returning frnm San
Francisco this week, tells of an In
terview which he and Waller Dilling
ham had with J. II. Rosseter, U. S.
director of shipping operations, in
which Mr. Rosseter expressed the
greatest confidence in tho future of
Honolulu as a shipping renter follow
ing the war, and urged Hawaii to get
ready to take the place that, awaits
her In this respect Ho strongly re
commended that steps be taken to
have Honolulu declared a free port,
at which vessels from any part of the
world might, r-top and transfer cargo
for other points for storage, duty
free. Ships bound for the Orient
would leave part of their cargo for
transshipment to Australia, for in
insl uue, taking on perhaps Austral
ian products for the Orient which had
already been left for that purpose.
He compared Honolulu as a shipping
ccnt-r with Chicago as a railroad
Honolulu Milk Being Regulated
A committee of the territorial food
commission has recommended that a
retail price of 11 cents per quart for
unskimmed milk be the fixed price,
and. that skimmed milk be sold at not
less thru 5 cents per quart. It is
said that 1 his is the present price of
milk in Los Angeles and other coast
itie. The plan of the Dairymen's
Association heretofore of selling two
snides of milk is to be discontinued.
"Fire Day", October 9
October 9 wi'l be set ando as "Fire
Day" by Governor McCarthy and pro
claimed by him as a territorial holi
day to be officially known ns "Fire
and Accident Prevention Day". It is
expected that a program dealing with
fire preveention will he arranged and
explained at a public meeting. The
C.overinr says the public must be
"Mien tort in th" matter of reducing
firo and accident hazards.

Honor Cystem At Industrial
School Highly Successful
In a recent talk before the Ad
Hub Superintendent Frederick An
derson informed the businessmen that
the Boys' Industrial School had 32
representatives in tho army. This i3
the result of the military . training
now given by a retired non-commissioned
officer pt the school. Mr. An
derson stated that 90 percent of trou
ble that caused boys to be sent to tho
Industrial school was due to improper
homes with either no parents or
drunken parents. Ho also went on
to nay that the self-government plan
which, has been in operation at the
chopl for the past two years has
been highly successful. The boys
dect. a president, vice-president and
twelve members of congress. They
''.ve their own court and judge t'aeir
iwn offenders. They now no longer
'lave thr- dormitory system but have a
lories of honor cottages which will
ho. re 20 boys unler home conditions.
The boys have a very fine trades
building in which are complete out
fits for a wood mill, a complete ma
chine shop, a blacksmith shop, mo-
lent team laundry, mechanical tailor
department, a one ton ice and refri
gerating plant, two 50 h. p. oil burn
ing beikrs with complete exhaust
v-tem, a povr and fighting plant.
The building was built by the boys.
Island Troops Not Likely
To Be Called Away For Duty
Statements made lately from de
partment headquarters, are to effect
that there is little likelihood of a
change in policy by the war depart
ment with regard to local national
guard troops. These regiments will
doubtless be kept intact on Oahu for
garrison duty relieving other troops
which will be sent to the front.

THE SIN OF HYPOCRISY
By Rev. J. Charles Villiers
(Church of the Good Shepherd.)
The twenty third chapter of St.
Matthew's gospel reports a discourse
of Jesus with much greater fullness
and completeness than either of the
lot her two synoptical gospids. This
; fact has led some biblical scholars to
I pfMinl.iitd thnt it rahmilri not ho roirard-
ed as an address by Jest's on a given
.lcrariiin, but as a collection of his
saying against the Scribes and
Pharisees uttered at various times,
p:it in the form of a single discourse
or summary of his terrible but cour
ageous indictment of them. While
such nny be the fact, the oompldo-n-KS
of the apostle's report of these
vcrd.c of Jest! is in itself presump
tive evidence that they were spoken
by him on an occarirn when not only
the multitude and his own disciples
were present before him, but a con
siderate number of the Scribes and
Pilaris: es, also. Analysis of the ad
dress shows that Jesus first spoke to
the multitude, then to his own dis
ciples, and finally to the Scribes and
Pharisees. To these last, he ad
dressed himself in terms of strong,
severe, and one might, perhaps, truly
say, sarcastic speech, filing them, in
language of rishtoo.vs indigna'icn, the
salutary, but bitter truth about them
selves. That Jesus should have expressed
himself in such strong, vehement
evms of denunciation of the hypo
crisy, inquity, and supersition of the
Scribes and Pharisees has been a
cause of astonishment to some peo
ple. That ir. due, perhaps to the fact
that they fail to recognise the full
orbed character of Jesus and do not
take into account sufficiently his in
finite moral grandeur, and intense
regard for purity and righteousness.
Their chief, and, it may be, their only
thought of his character has been
that it was mildness itself, mildness
even to the degree of condoning sin
ra'her than "to hurt anybody's feel
'nTs." This, surely, is a foolish no
lon, and a perversion of the truth.
Righteous indignation at sin in such
ways as the Scribes and Pharisees
were guilty of it was a3 much, a part
o" the character of Jesus as was pity
ing love. He had no sympathy with,
nor covering grace for the hyprocrir.y,
inquity, superstition, and sinful sop
histries which the Scriber and
Pharisees committed. Ho abhorred
all can't and insincerity. There is
rin vhich calls for pity, and sir. that
calls for blame. There is Fin also
which calls for righteous indignation.
Such is the sin of which tho hypocrite
is guilty. If Jesus had condoned the
hypocrisy of the Scribes and Pharise
es: if he had not rondemne'l it an be
did, he would have shown himself
lacking in that moral earnestness,
and in that love which is the very
essential in the Savior of men. Ter
rible ns are the seven "Woe unto you,
Scribes and Pharisees," of Jesus, re
ported by Sf. Matthew, they were not
uttered by him in any spirit cf vitu
peration, or without his all-embracing
love going cut to those people in
whose moral and religious interest
he gave expression to them. Love,
as well as justice and sjneority, to
the Scribes and Pharisees required
that he rhould speak to them as he did.
The Scribes and Pharisees thought
themselves religious above all men,
and regarded themselves as the very
conservators of religion. Jesus show
ed them that in experience they en
tirely lacked in knowledge of religion
as communion with God, and true
service to their fellowmen.
What is it that our Lord condemns
in this discourse on hypocrisy? False
hood and deceit in religion, and what
soever divorces religion from that
realm of ethics and morality to which
it is united. He shows us by this ad
dress that utterly abhorrent to the
Eternal Mind is n religion which has
greater regard for the public eye than
it has for the eye of God. It has been
said that the relation between ethics
and religion Is a difficult subject. But
no man of average intelligence,
familiar, even in the most elementary
way, with the teachings of Jesus
Christ should fail of knowledge of
the fact that God, who i3 Righteous,
requires of men a righteous motive
and aim in daily life. Though moral
conduct is not the whole of religion
it is part and parcel of it, and he
whose religion does not relate itself
to his moral conduct is far from be
ing in a healthy religious and mora)
Our Lord did not condemn the
Scribes and Pharisees because they
were imperfect, but because they
were in sincere.
