Red Cross Shops A Big Success

Shops in Honolulu was remarkable
A man who has conscientious
scruples" against helping to finance
this war has no right to any Ameri

constituted as to declare our part in

worse than a pro-Hun. The man
who refuses to back with his money
the defenders of right against the
violators of every decency, every law
of God and man, every principle up
'ii which freedom is founded, is at
the very least a passive accomplice
of the rapist, the murderer, the baby
killer and the brutal pillager. The
pro-German has at leaRt courage back

nothing, neither courage nor sense.

United Action By The Employers
Shorn of a misleading and tho
roughly unfortunate paragraph, the
resolutions Indorsing Chinese labor
importation passed the Chamber of
Commerce yesterday and will be the
basis of an appeal at Washington.
The meeting of the chamber was
broadly representative of its member
ship, with a heavy proportion of plant
ers and other men of "big business"
in attendance. There was never any
question of the passage of the resolu
tion by such an assembly. These men
see and feel an acute immediate pro
blem and meet it with an emergency
measure. Probably no more repre
sentative gathering of large employ
ers could have been secured In the
territory. They are a unit in asking
relief from a labor shortage and a
unit In believing that the importation
of unskilled Chinese labor is the most
The deleted paragraph would have
placed the chamber on record as say
ing that "the cultivation of sugar,
pineapples and rice In a sub-tropical
climate is not labor attractive to any
other than Orientals." This' broadly
assertive statement, unsupported by
facts, has fortunately been dropped.
The bill goes to Washington at a
time when some congressman seem
disposed to lift the immigration bars
to meet the pressure of Industry
stripped of men by the war. Hawaii's
best chance of getting favorable ac
tion is to present the proposal with
out "lobbying" or an expensive propa
ganda program on its merits ana as
the appeal of agricultural interests
unable to find any other path out of
their difficulties. Star-Bulletin.

E PLURIBUS UNUM
By Rev. J. Charles Villiers.
Among the later prophecies of
Isaiah, most of which are, in some
way, connected with the deliverance
of Judah from her captivity in Baby
lon, there is a prophecy the larger
part of which is ir. the form of a pray
er. This prayer the prophet puts in
to the mouth of a minority of cap
tive Judah, a minority which later
ages have come tc- speak of as '"The
remnant of Israel." Why? Because
by its community of feeling; its gene
rous sympathy; its vicarious assump
tion of guilt, it made itself one with
that great majority of 'he nation who
had yielded to the inducements and
temptations of Babylon to forsake the
religion of their fathers. This rem
nant of Israel, has touched the imagin
ations, and warmed the hearts of men
in every age. But in thus associat
ing themselves with their sinful
neighbors and in making common
cause with them in confession of sin
they did but acknowledge what is a
great fact in human life.
While it is true, as St. Paul says,
that "Each man shall bear his own
burden," there is a law of life which
makes it also true that we must,
bear on? another's, burdens. We do
this sometimes unconsciously. If we
do it consciously, as at times we do,
we may do it with rebellion, and
without a spark of sympathy, or
generous feeling In our souls. It was
not in such a spirit that the faithful
remnant of Israel aligned themselves,
and made common cause and confes
sion with their sinful neighbors. They
did so in sympathy, and in the fullest
recognition of that community of in
terests by which a nation stands or
falls together. They were all mem
bers one of another, and must; not
only of necessity, but of choice, bear
one another's burdens.
This was the thought and idea that
lay behind the confession of the faith
ful remnant of Israel. "We all became
as one unclean, and all our righteous
deeds were as a soiled garment." That
is their confession. Their spirit
was the same as that of St. Paul when
in his epistle to the Romans, he wrote
saying that so great was his desire
for the salvation of his bretnren ac
cording to the flesh, that he could
wish himself anaihematized if, there
by, he could win them to embrace
the gospel of Jesus Christ. sucn
zeal is not born of fanaticism, but
only of deep-seated patriotism, broth
erly love and affection.
But while it mty be assumed that
the remnant of l3vael had been ordin
arily faithful to the great essentials
of their religious faith, it may also
be assumed that they had not been
absolutely so. Who is? They had
some share in the shame and sorrow
which they felt for their fellow-countrymen.
It has been finely said that every
man is made in some measure by the
company he keeps. Character is
moulded imperceptibly by a multitude
of circumstances. Yet is should not
be forgotten that character is not
wholly build on circumstances. It is
a fabric of human life, woven togeth-er,-warp,
web, and woof. It is a gar
ment of a thousand threads, put to
gether by countless stitches. It com
prehends not only the unconscious
mind, but also the conscious will. It
is not a thing of chance, but of choice.
It is a garden which, if left to itself
will produce weeds, but which, with
even moderate care and cultivation,
may be made to produce fruits and
Now the Idea behind the prayer of
the faithful remnant of Israel was
that their nation had been brought
into captivity, and was threatened
with extinction, because they, in com
mon with the rest of the nation had
failed to recognise God's rightful place
in their national life.
Is there not a lesson for our own
times, and for our own land, in this
chapter ,or page, from the history of
God's ancient people? I think there
are several deep and Important les
sons. One lesson it teaches Is
the unity of national life, and that
our place as citizens in it, is not
wholly determined by our own per
sonal merits, or de-merits. We are,
to use St. Paul's figure of the church
a gure true of the nation as well as
of the church "many members in
one body." If "one member suffereth,
all the members suffer with it, or one
member be honored, all the members
rejoice with it." If ever a truth should
be emphasized, that, surely, is a
truth that should be emphasized to
day. We should think more frequent
ly and more Intensely than we do of
America's national motto: "E Plurl
bus Unum" out of many, one," and
try to realize our citizenship not only
as a great privilege, but also as a
great trust and responsibility. It Is
not only ours for possession, but to
be used in the service of our country,
and, may we not add, for the service
of mankind. The burden which our
country is laying on our soldiers at
this time in asking us to provide it
with funds to carry on a war for the
eomcon good of humanity, should not
awaken rebellion in our souls, but
fire us with sympathy for the nation
and for th ecause it has espoused.
And our sympathy should not be
sentimental. It should be alive,
active, and, if need be, vicarious, the
kind that sacrifices, and serves, with
true community interest, that the good
end sought may be attained.
One hopes one is not misunderstood
when one says that God is judging
the world today by its sympathies.
We, of America, are glad that our
sympathies and war services are
with the Allies' cause.
SPARE THE FEED
AND SAVE THE FOWL
To correct a frequent source of loss
in marketing poultry, the food admin'
Istration requests producers not to
over-feed fowls Just before offering
thorn for sale. This practice is
especially bad in warm weather when
it often causes sickness and even
Feed given poultry closely confined
in crates should not exceed one ounce
of grain or other dry feed for every
two pounds of live weight. Persons
are sometimes tempted to feed fowls
heavily just before marketing, In the
hope of receiving poultry prices for
the reed contained in the birds' crops.
Hut in actual practice, this is a loss
both in money and food. Birds freq
uently die In farmers' wagons but
more often shortly after they are del
ivered. In either case a loss is sus
tained which is ultimately reflected
back to producers.
Poultry in crates is unable to exer
rise. More than that, the watering
cups are Fcldom adequate for all the
fowls in the crate, either from lack of
attention, evaporation, losses from
spilling or several of these causes
Feed consequently cakes in the
over-full crops, causing sickness and
death. In warm weather, heavy feed
ing also results in over-heating and is
another cause of mortality.
The food administration points out
the desirability of more water and
less feed for poultry Just before mar
keting. Experienced poultry handlers
have recognized the soundness of this
request and during hot weather give
their fowls an abundance of clean
water but a mere maintenance ration.
This practice has greatly reduced
loswes in handling live poultry.
