A PRECARIOUS VICTORY
An analysis nf the election returns indicate that Kuliio won in spile
i-i hi- weakness, ami thai MeCandless lost because of the feeling on
.h. part (t a great number of independent voters that anyone was
1 i curable in him. In lmrt there were hundreds of citizens who voted
1m- Kuhin not because they favored him, but because they favored Fink
.MeCandless gained strength on the whole since 1916 but he did it
:.' a peculiar way. 1 1 is gains were in parts of the territorv where he
a citizen were least well known, namely on Hawaii
"trength greatly in Honolulu and some parts of
ana in- record as
r '! Kauai. I le lost
There is only one way to figure it MeCandless would have stood
a good show of being elected but for his record as a rice profiteer and
the feeling that his private interests always hold first place in his con
On the other hand Kuhio lias lost most of his old time strength as
evidenced by his dwindling vote on Hawaii and Kauai. In these dis
tricts the electorate is largely Hawaiian but Kuhio has lost his power as
an alii and a Hawaiian to hold the Hawaiians.
'here is every reason to believe that had Kuhio been opposed by
d man of intelligence, of unquestioned public spirit and patriotism, and
who was acqainted throughout the territory, Kuhio would have been de
feated last Tuesday.
Kuhio announced in his campaign that he stood uixm his record.
It was because he had to stand on his record that his support is now
so precarious. He has another chance to redeem himself. If in the
next two years he will take oft' his coat and show the people that lie
rcallv has the will to work for Hawaii and not simply to pose as a relic
of a defunct rovaltv, he may be able to "come back". But without some
such evidence it is extremely unlikely that, in the light of recent events,
.he republican party will be willing to risk another election with him
st the head of the ticket.
NO TIME TO SLACK UP
Because it seems impossible that the war could last very' much
longer, some persons seem to feel that is time to let down on all kinds
of war endeavor. Such ideas are wrong. Moreover they are highly
dangerous to the nation, and patriotic citizens will not only keep their
own" shoulders in the yoke, but will do their utmost to keep others up
to the scratch.
If the war ended tomorrow it would not change these facts:
That , ...
The people of the United States must supply Europe with
about 50 percent more food products than they have this year;
That , . . ...
It will take longer to bring our soldiers home and to demobilize
n;-r armies than it did to create them and get them to Europe;
That , , . .
Millions of dol'ars worth of contracts for shipping, munitions
and other supplies must be completed ;
That , ... , ,
We are certain of at least one, and more likely two, more
That ,. . . .
The Red Cross work must go on without diminution for many
months after the last gun is fired;
It will be America's duty to sacrifice to the utmost to help
rehabilitate war-desolated Europe.
In short it is no time to stop and rest. Rather are we to be put to
the test in more severe degree than ever before in proof of our patriotism.
PRACTICAL HOME PHILANTHROPY
The Home Sen ice branch of the Civilian Relief, Red Cross, is
. , vf-rv valuable factor in the lives of the soldier boys
f,f the work of the local branch from June 22 to
November 1, shows that 77 cases have been helped in various ways and
covers 6 nationalities. Over 577 packages ot civilian doming retumcu

We can admire to the full the work of the thousands of young and
nddle-aged men among the troops under such circumstances, but what
ords of praise are adequate to suit the case of the noble girls of the
alvation Army, who daily penetrate into the firing lines, armed onlv
ith their now world-famous doughnuts, and brave the horror and the
histhng death that the "boys" may not go without the material com
irts and the cheery word they so greatly need in their nerve-racking
Such deeds as these, carried out by young girls, are writing a chap

he work of the seven welfare organizations is indeed the brightest
age in the chronicle of the war, for it has provided for the soldier and
ic sailor, everything that the Government regulations do not admit
t furnishing for help and comfort. Its effect upon the men is shown

as lent its wealth freely to the Government. That was no sacrifice ,for
it was an investment of idle capital. NOW we are asked to GIVE,
and here again we arc to receive a return for our money, and a return
of infinitely greater value than the return of our cash plus the dividends ;
we are asked to give in order that we may ensure the return of our
heroes to their homes and loved ones; that the world may be made fit
to live in, and that American ideals and American honor may be made
clear to all the peoples of the earth.

Correct Lubrication for the
Valve-in-Head Type Motor
The Valve-in-head-type en
gine illustrated here, like all
internal combustion engines,
requires an oil that holds its
lubricating qualities at cyl
inder heat, burns clean in
the combustion chambers
and goes out with exhaust.
Zerolene fills these require
ments perfectly, because j'rs
correctly refined from selected
California asphalt-base crude
The Standard Oil for Motor Cars
It Keeps the EngineYoung!
Experts agree in recommending ZEROLENE because
it keeps the engine young, full-powered, smooth-running,
and economical in fuel and oil consumption.
The majority of motorists are now using ZEROLENE,
because they have learned by experience that there is
no better oil to be had.
Correctly refined from selected California asphalt-base
crude, ZEROLENE gives perfect lubrication with less
wear and less carbon deposit. Less wear because ZER
OLENE keeps its lubricating body at cylinder heat.
Less carbon because, being made from asphalt-base
crude, it burns clean and goes out with exhaust.
ZEROLENE is the correct oil for all types of automo
bile engines. It is the correct oil for your automobile.

tency for your car.
