Nov. 16, 1911.
Editor Garden Island ,
I want to tell vou how much I
admire the policy of our local paper.
The people on Kauai are to be con
gratulated on having a paper edited
by one who speaks out fearlessly
and truthfully concerning the live
issues of the day. The promptness
with which our splendid little paper
takes up the scepter in the cause of
justice and common sense, is a
pleasure to its readers.
The servant question, dealt with
in your last issue, is one which
concerns many of us, and the frank
statemeut of facts, may sting some
what, but will nevertheless do much
towards putting a stop to a habit
which is said to exist. Again, the
war for justice which you are con
ducting in 1ehalf of the teachers
of kauai, rings with truthfulness
and the statement of tacts are so
forcibly put as to convince your
readers that to The Garden Is
land the teachers have every cause
to be exceedingly grateful as a
champion of their interests.
Honoiulu is stung again. She
has once more indicated her
gullability in the present yellow
fever scare. It is not intended as
a reflection on the Hoard of Health!
to say that the order to destroy
banana trees was without doubt ;
the most ridiculous thing which
ever happened to Honolulu.
Going back to hardpan, the
whole affair hinges upon the neg-:
ligence of the doctor in charge of,
the quarentine station, whose per-j
mission, or neglect both being s
equal allowed the infected guard i
to leave the station. ;
Upon this doctor, whoever he is,
and he only, rests the entire blame
for the present state of affairs. i
A man in such a position, a man j
upon whom the very lives of thou
sands depend, a man in whom the
government places every confid
ence and indicates that confidence
by placing him in such a very re
sponsible position, a man who will,
intentinually or thoughtlessly, be
tray that trust, especially in such
instances, is guilty of criminal
neglect and should be given only
consideration sufficient to properly
and effectively apply a No. 10 boot
in the immediate vicinity ot Ins
solar plexis. Not only should he'
be immediately removed from1
office, but there should be a law
enacted whereby men who would
endanger the lives of so many
people by neglecting his duty,
should be punished. In this instance
there .seems to be a clear case of
criminal neglect from the head
official of the quarentine station.
There are those who blame the
unfortunate Hawaiian guard, but
such reports, when investigated,
generally originate from those who
never b.aine the higher-up so long
as there is an under dog.
It i not for us to pass judgment
on the correctness of the doctors'
diagnosis. In fact, they are re
putable men ami are to be be
lieved. While this is a fact, how
ever, we have the privilege of U--licving
that the doctors who arc in
support to the already widely pre
vailing belief that the case in Ho-,
nolulu was not yellow fever.
The enormity o f the blunder
made by the quarentine doctor, can j
be partly realized when we consider j
the damage which has been caused
by the wholesale destruction of
banana trees, the amount of time j
and money spent on sanitation etc. ;
all of which might easily have been j
avoided had one single individual I
realized the gravity of the situation j
and attended to business. And
thisindividual is not any ignorant
Hawaiian guard by a long shot, j
It costs a country newspaper
money every time it takes a stand j
on any question. Almost any
citizen besides a newspaper man
can do so without injuring his
business or losing money. If the
editor advocates improvements the
soreheads go after him and some
times stop their paper. If he op
poses improvement the progressives
get on him and call him a
knocker and a back number. If
he publishes politics the opposite
gets into his hair, and if he doesn't
then ho is afraid to stand up for
his opinion. If he condemns mail
order houses there are some persons
who tell him to mind his own
business and that they will trade
where they please. If he publishes j
a mail order house advertisement
the merchants are after his gore, j
No country paper can come out j
squarely without making enemies ;
and losing money and in the run j
! of a year or more will incur some i
I criticism from everybody. T h e j
newspaper man who undertakes to '
please everybody will please no-1

thoughtful, the public will respect
