THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1918.
I 4th LIBERTY LOAN
Fy U. W. C. Wallace Petty.
We know that they would come
those long casualty lists. It was a
fact written on Friday, April 6, 1917,
by the hand of the inevitable. When
we voiced our protest as a nation
against the ruthlessnoss of the Hun
by hurling our regiments in olive drab
nt the war machine of the German
general Rtaff, we knew that the toll
of our loyalty to a world's liberty
would ultimately be paid in the crim
son coin of national sacrifice. Dur
ing these last days of exaltation, when
victory has crowned the heroic efforts
of our troops, there has been lurking
in the background of our minds the
somber realization that soon we
should know the cost, soon we should
have the account placed be fore us
written in the scarlet letters of blood.
And yet, in spite of the sorrow of
it all, what a wonderful story it is!
We know that those boys of ours
would acquit themselves like men.
We knew the fiber of their souls, the
courage of their spirits, the determin
ation of their heaits. And whefi our
allies refer to the American "con
tempt for death", and the marvelous
"audacious courage" of our forces, we
are not surprised. We are simply
humbly grateful that a land of free
dom has produced a type of men who
hold liberty above life and fear tyran
ny more than death. Posterity will
know better than shall we what a
boon came to the world when our
armies marched against the cruel
Hun. It takes time to shape perspec
tives. And tomorrow will write the
epic of heroism that today is bo.
ing enacted upon that gory stage on
True, it is hard to realize that
many of those boys who went away
with serious smiles upon their facet
will not return. In (he very prime of
their lives, before the sun of existence
had slipped to the meridian of high
noon, they dropped their tools and
Shouldered their muskets to hurry to
the defense of the dearest heritages
of our humanity. They did not bar
gain about the cost, they did not
hesitate in the face of the price. God
had called them: the world was in
jeopardy; the Brotherhood of Man
had been assaulted, that was en
ough. They have gone to make fht
world a safe place for decent men
and women to live in. They have
gone, that is the great fact .
And those who return not will live
on in the institutions for which they
gave their lives. They are not dead.
They have simply "gone West!"
Heads erect, faces steadfastly set to
ward the enemy of society, they
marched fearlessly into the sunset,
and on over the rim of the sunset in
to the Land of Eternal Sunrise. My
brethren, the sprig of acacia is our
comfort today. Wc know that just
beyond the dugout and the barbed
wire lies the House of Many Man
sions. The field of Honor borders on
the Fields of Asphodel.
Just around the corner from the
Hell of War is the Heaven of Infinite
Peace. They are not dead; for of
such is the kingdom of Heaven.
But there is a serious question that
will not down in the mind of every
honest man as he stands before the
altars of the nation, red with the
sacrificial blood of our boys. What
am I doing to help in these times?
Brothers, these men have died for us.
They have given their lives for our
.freedom, made the supreme sacrifice
for our liberty. Are we worth dying
for? Surely these are days when ev
ery true son of God ought to be
searching his heart to see If Its mo
tives are pure and its aspirations lof
ty. Selfishness and self-indulgence
are always bins: today they are
crimes against God.
Shame on the man who whines
about any little hardship that this
war may have laid upon him! Shame
on the man who is selfish of his dol
lars when the boys are so prodigal
about their lives! Shame on the man
who complains about giving and bear
ing hlg share in the maintenance of
our troops! A thousand shames for
the man who is yellow in his loyalty,
who is hesitating in giving whole
hearted, full-souled support to the
prosecution of the war waged in the
defense of human rights!
These casually lists bring with them
a demand for renewed consecration
by us still at home. They call for
new oaths of allegiance from the folk
of the second-line defense. Over the
preen mounds that marks the resting
places of our sacred dead we vow that
we will never stop until the last
wrong is righted and the last crime
avenged. We will carry on, carry
on till over the world shall come a
breaking the dawn of a better, hap
pier day; carry on till peace can be
had with honor and till the criminal
of the nations has been punished; car
ry on till those ideals and principles
for which our boys h:ivo died shall
be mado safe for posterity, and de
throned tyranny shall he relegated
forever to the scrapheap of time.
To do less is to prove false to ev
ery tradition of our American life;
to desert every principle for which we
as a nation have stood through all
our history; to violate our obligations
to God, shirk our responsibilities to
humanity, and break faith with those
silent heroes who today slumber In
the long sleep somewhere in France.
'Oh! awful, sweetest life of mine,
That man and God both serve in
blood and tears.
If on myself I dare to spend
This sacred thing in pleasure, lapped
What am I but a hideous idol smear

As to food the Allies have no reason
to fear the future, while (lie enemy

McCandlcss As A Campa;gner
in everything except politics one
positive is worth a thousand negatives
but in polities the rule works back
wards. For instance, it was easy to
tell that Hughes' campaign was a
failure. The voters did not come to
hear him and those that did come
went away unmoved. On t!i& con
trary, Bryan in all his campaigns
drew liiiKe crowds, liberal with their
applause, but when the votes were
counted Bryan was not present. It
was the same with Hearst, the last
three times he ran, whethe.r for Gov
ernor of New York State or M;iyor
of New York City. The people came
to hear him, but they refused to vote

vancies such as the number of pota

have been supposed to eat In the
course of a bury lifetime; but he
"puts it over;" he makes his person

and amuses his hearers. For a man
whose counterfeit, presentment more
resembles an angry mud-turtle than
anything else in the animal kingdom,
he contrives to wear-a surprisingly
amiable and engaging countenance in
the flesh. And he is adroit and plau

For every voter who listens to a poli

the Islands the composition of the
electorate is such that the contact be

is much more intimate. Such as it is,
the Territory probably is the last
surviving stronghold of political ora

newspapers or are able to read them.

Hawaii's draft work has gone
smnolhy along without a suspicion of
a scandal and with remarkably little
friction. The draft boards have been
of a caliber to command respect, and
even their differences of opinion have
been amicably and intelligently ad
justed. In Porto Piico, by way of
contrast, charges so grave as to
amount to a scandal havo been lodged
against the selective draft ollicials
because, it is alleged, well-to-do young
men escaped military service. A re

Less Glass On The Roads
Since the advent of prohibition
there has been a most commendable
falling off in the amount of broken
glass scattered along the public high
ways to the undoing of auto tires
and drivers' patience. Perhaps it
was only a co-incidence, the broken
bottles and the intoxicating drink
which they contained, and perhaps it
is also only a coincidence that the
prohibition of the latter has entailed
: falling off of the former, but it is a
natural inference. At any rate the
change is a welcome one whatever the
cause. Garden Island.
The Thing That Counts
It is not so much a question wheth

son is an alien enemy through no

however, whether the teachers eh

KING versus DEMOCRACY
By Rev. J. Charles Yilliers
Church of the 'Good Shepherd.
Ana .Samuel said unto
Behold I have hearkened
voice in all that ye raid unto me, and
have made a king over you."
These words are from a chapter in
he old T -stami'iit in which the story
is Wild of the beginning of a new
p.'xh in the national life of Israel,
'p to that time, after their deliver

i simple, self governing nation, led
y sii'iali appointed rulers, who
were known as "Judges". Of these
Midges, three were men of outsland
character and ability, Moses, Jo
!;.::, and Samuel. Moses was Israel's
i t 1 ailer, and it was he who start-

It requires no great stretch of im
gination for one to see in this trans

life of Israel some lessons for to-dav.
The causes which led Israel to choose

these was the desire for power.Not on
ly did they wish to be like the nations
around them, they wanted, in truth.
to be bigger and more important than
other nations. To use a phrase with
which in these days we are familiar,
they wanted "a place in the sun". To
form a correct notion of the kind of
ruler they sought we must clear our
minds of all ideas of what we now
understand as "constitutional govern
ment", in which the king is restricted
in his powers by the parliament of his
people. Israel had not the faintest
notion of such a ruler. A king to
them was one whose sovereignty was
absolute, whose authority, and whose
word, was final law. Few are the na
tions so ruled today. But there still
are a few nations whose mouarchs en
joy a monopoly of rights, and who aro
considered by their people as abo.'j

One of these imperial rulers said
some time ago, "There is but one
master in this country; I am he, and
I will tolerate no other". It was the
same imperial ruler who said to an
American Ambassador: "I will stanl
no nonsense from America". He is
fond of quoting, so we are told, tie
old Roman adage; making it read:
"The will of the king is the hifh-Bt
It is this conception of imperial
sovereignty which litis brought the
civilized world to its present plight.
It is often said that every modern war
can be traced to commercial selfish
ness. That is not true, ex.'ept i:S

personal and imperial ambit ijn The
present war is traceable to a lust for
an expansion of territory and world

thought, in the early days of the vrar,
in 191!3: "Germany is now to become
mentally, and morally, the first mi
tion in the world". "Not to live anl
let live, but to live and direct I he
lives of others, that is power. To
bring people under our rational In
fluence in order to put their affairs
on a better fooling, ..l.al is more te
rmed power", said anther lewler of
German thought, one of the found
ers of the Pan-German League. Max
imilian Harden, editor of "Die Ztt
kunfl", who wields a powerful pen,
-said, only the other day, that "the soul
of modern Germany Is dom:..ar.ed by
the idea of bondage", and H::'. the im
perative word of its impeii.i! ruler Is,
"Down on your knecj."
If the German peopi.i ai'3 wil ing to
submit themselves to such humllla

sons to resent it. But when the d r

of the world to its krees beicr-i him,
it is a different r.,atln'.

Permit me to quote from a letter
which I received a few days ago from
one who has spent nearly three years
on the battle front. He is writing of
the present need of man-power on the
scene of action. He says: "I feel that
no young fellow can, out of respect
to himself and those that come after,
afford to stand clear of this war. The
thing is too stupendous; too all-important.
Everything on earth depends
on its outcome. Its right or wrong,
God or the Devil, and we have cot to
decide which. There's no half-way;
I no compromise. The war is the only
thing that matters now, everything
! else fades into insignificance, and no
! man can afford to pass by on the oth
er side" He is right. America and
lur Allies are not only fighting for

racy is the will of the people moving
in the direction of the will of God.
Only as Democracy is alive to the
voice of God can it escape political
corrupt inn. A Democracy without
M'ifitual outlook, without moral
ideals, without human sympathy and
love, will meet with temptations which
it will not. overcome.
Now we cannot by the nature of
circumstances, by reason of age, and
so forth, all go forth to battle, but in
some way or other, we can all have a
part, in various ways, in pushing the
war to a successful issue for the cause
of liberty and right. Most of us can
buy Liberty Bonds, or War Stamps,
even though we may havo to make
personal sacrifices to do so. Our na
tional ideals are not militant. We of
America, and our Allies, aro not fight
ing because wc are actuated by un
holy pride; but because we dare not,
and cannot be recreant to the prin
ciples of liberty, right, and justice.
Becinse these are the principles for
which we are fighting we can come to
no terms with the enemy until the
cenflict is settled by the victory and
triumph of the Allied Armies. There
can be no compromise, therefore, we
must all do our duty in every way
