WHY M'C AND LESS SHOULD BE DEFEATED
Senator II. A. Baldwin, in a letter to the Maui News, printed in
i.noihi-r column of this issue. X)ints out sonic of the tricks which Link
MeCandless. is using in his fight for the dclcgateship.
Of course McCandless has no other object than to deceive when
he claims to he the only friend of homesteading in the Islands, or when
he tries to make the voters believe that Kuhio is trying to keep the peo
ple off of government lands.
This may fool some of the people but it should not fool many,
becau-e the Delegate's record on the homesteading question is too well
i nn en to be the subject of any doubt as to how he stands on that sub
ject. Whatever may be argued against Kuhio no one who is honest
and who knows the facts will attempt to attack him on his homestead
Everybody in Hawaii knows, or should know, that the greatest
rpponcnt of homesteading Hawaii has ever had was a democrat Ex
Governor Lucis E. l'inkham. And there is no secret about the way
Mr. l'inkham and his administration sought to throttle all initiative on
the part of the people in having government lands opened for settle
ment. Kuhio did introduce a bill in the Congress to strike out the clause
in the Organic Act requiring the opening of land on application of 25
(itiens, but the bill was plainly marked as introduced by request, and
it was at the request of the then territorial administration. The bill
was later killed in committee on motion of Delegate Kuhio after Land
Commissioner Rivenburgh had had opportunity to urge its passage.
Link's effort to discredit the Delegate on the matter of the federal
Farm Loan Act, is another piece of raw camouflage and nothing more
T here is probably not a single district in all the territory in which the
farmers could benefit by this act were it extended to include Hawaii.
Nor would it help any homesteader since a man must own his land in
crder to borrow from the government under the act ; and he must more
over have 24 neighbors also borrowing and joining with him in furnish
ing security. Hawaii perhaps had her remedy in the territorial farm
loan bill introduced in the last legislature, but which was killed bv one
or two votes in the senate. But Kuhio did not, in any sense betray
the Islands in his stand towards the federal act.
Were there no other reason for defeating Link McCandless .at the
polls next Tuesday, the fact that he is deliberately trying to fool the
x oters that lie is telling them things he knozvs are not facts should
be sufficient to condemn him. A man zvho is willing to hi'st records
for his ozvn gain is not the kind of man to be trusted to look after the
interests of Hainan in 11 ashmgton.
ARE YOU THINKING AND LIVING IN TERMS OF WAR?
The United States Food Administration says:
WAR NEEDS Govern Exports America is giving up wheat to
!p it to maintain the Allied and American armies in prime fighting
WAR NEEDS Govern Imiorts America is limiting her luxuries
and getting down to plain living to release shipping for war.
WAR NEEDS Govern As a military necessity a War Measure
Americans arc eating potatoes instead of wheat, putting the sugar bowl
out of sight, wearing their old clothes, saving their incomes, investing
in war securities, setting the clocks an hour earlier, raising home gardens
canning and drying, eliminating waste and working like beavers.
ARE YOU EATING, LIVING, WORKING IN TERMS OF
REFLECT UPON THIS
The cost of the United States Food Administration for its first
ear's work was less than two cents for every person in the United
States. It's work with the cooperation of patriotic Americans, has
saved the Allied nations from starvation, as evidence by expressions
irom the iood controllers of France, Italy and Britain.
And now a wail comes from Ililo that her parks are going to the
dogs because of prohibition. The old-time supply of prison labor has
ia'.led because there are no more drunks to recruit from. I his is sen
..fits,, and. .will i certainly be one great argument for voting back King

tracts of government land for home
steading when twenty-five or more
qualified persons make application
for the opening of same and he drewu
attention to the fact that our delegate
introduced a bill into Congress last
ear to ami nd the land law by strik
ing out this clause, citing this to show
that Mr. Kalanianaole is not in favor
of homesteading. Hot h are misrep-
esentations according to my informa
"I understand that Mr. McCandless
is present when the law was fram
1 and that he suggested that it be
ade the duty of the Commissioner
to open up land if fifty or nior? make
ipplication; someone else suggested
that the number he ten, and finally nC-
r discussion those who had the mat
ter in charge compromised at twenty-
five. This clause was an amendment
to the original Organic Act passed in
1908 and our delegate was a member
of the committee which had the nisit-
r under consideration and gaee his
ipproval to same.
Regarding the bill introduced last
ear by our delegate to Congress to
strike out the twenty-five applicant
lause, 1 wish to say that the bill was
Introduced at the instance of certain
prominent Democrats and that plain
ly printed on the bill was this: "In
troduced by J. K. Kalanianaole by re
quest." He introduced the bill so
that its sponsors might appear before
the committee to which it was re-
red to present their reasons for
idvocating the amendment to our
iws. The bill, I am informed, was
iter killed in the committee by mo
tion of the delegate and the letter
from Mr. McCandless to Representa
tive Judge Houston, as printed in the
McCandless leaflet, was not read to
'I am also informed that Mr. Mc
Candless represents to the people
that it is because of the neglect of
Delegate Kalanianaole that the "Farm
,oan Act" of Congress was not ex-
nded to include Hawaii and that if
Hawaii were included in the provi
sions of this act the homesteaders
here would be greatly benefited there
by as they would be enabled to borrow
funds from the Federal riank to build
homes, stock their farms, etc. My
understanding of the Act is that it is
not applicable to this purpose at nil
as borrowers under this law must
own their . farms in fee in order to
put them up as security for the loan
ind homesteaders do not get title to
their lands until after they have built
their homes there and have farmed
the land for a term of years. A bor
rower under this Act must also be
something of a capitalist as he must
own stock in the Federal Bank that
is provided for in Ihe law.
"It seems to me that Mr. McCand
less is not playing the game and is
trying to secure votes by misrepre
senting his opponent.

Doing Heroic Work
In Letter To Honolulu Friends She
Gives A Glimpse Of The Kind Of
Help Our Women Are Doing Close
The nature oi the work being done
by the Salvation Army lassie.t on the
fighting front is illustrated in the fol
lowing interesting letter, a copy of
which was recently received by one
of the Salvation Army staff in Hono
lulu is from Ensign Margaret Shel
don, who has for many months been
stationed close to the firing lines.
"Today I made 35 pies, fioo dough
nuts, mended socks and clothes, talk
ed with the boys and did many other
odd Jobs around the hut. I am very
busy and tired, but to see the faces
of the men as they eat our home
made food, and to hear them say
"just like home" is worth all the
weariness one is apt to feel. The
other day one hoy came in and asked
me if I could make him two pies by
supper time. I told him yes, but he
came in four times to see if they were
done. I gave them to him and he
carried them around the whole after
noon he wes afraid some of the oth
er boys would get them away from
"The General of the Division gave
us a talk at our last meeting and a
splendid talk it was. He finished by
saying, I want all my men not only
to have their names upon the 1 oil of
honor in the United States of America
but also upon the Lamb's Book of
Life. There is no doubt, that the Sal
vation Army is popular with the boys
and is much thought of here.
"It is almost eleven o'clock" the
letter continues, "I have a candle but
no fire and am half frozen with the
cold. We have just had an alarm ;
the boys were fixed up, dressed and
armed and out in the front trenches
like a flash. Heaven bless our brave
boys; they are the best ever."

world during the war and at the same
time prepare to rebuild the world's
