Victor Berber in his speech sup
porting old a tfe pensions said: ;
"Fveryhody in America readily j
knows why soldiers are entitled to
pensions. Soldiers render s e r
I vice on the field of battle consid-,
end dangerous to life and limb.
But very few people realize that
the number of wage earners killed
and injured on the railroads mines
and factories, aud other industries
in our country, is approximately
tual to the number of soldiers
killed and wounded in any one
I year of our great civil war, with
'. all its terrible battles. Thfc work
of the soldiers of industry is in
! finitely more necessary than the
bloody work of the soldiers on the
battle field. Most of the labor per
formed must be continued everv
1 day and every hour, or our civiliza
tion would stop. The aged work
ing men and working women have
'therefore, a claim on society . that
is even better than the claim of the
! soldier. The average, earnings of
i the wage working class in this
country is about S-kK). It is abso
lutely impossible to save anything
tor okl age on sucn a wage. l.very
toiler produces more than lie is
paid, otherwise he would not be
employed. It is a condition of the
capitalist order of society that the
employer must get the lion's share
of the product. The old age pension
bill which I have introduced is,
therefore, a measure o f simple
justice. Nearly every so-called
civilized country on the globe has
such a law, except t h e United
States. Under the terms of my
bill the cost of this measure would
approximate $347,000,000 yearly.
This snm may be staggering to
some good folk who believe i n
cheap government and in everybody
taking care of himself, but if our
nation can pay yearly $131,000,00(1,
for a navy, $95,000,000 for an
army, and $155,0()O.OOOforpension
ing war veterans, a total of
$381,000,000, it should certainly
be able to pay an equal sum to
pension its veterans of industry.
Remember, that these destitute
aged men and women have from
their childhood aided in creating
wealth which makes possible the
pa -incut of such large appropria
tions for the navy, the armv and
the war pensions. The old men and
women are entitled to a living out
side of the poor house and without
the aid of private charity."

ASK YOUR GROCER FOR THEM
(Special to the Garden Island)
Too late for last issue.
Mr. Chas. S. DoleofLihue came
up to Hanalei Saturday cn one of
his flying business trips and return
ed Sunday, lie was a guest at the
Mr. and Mrs. White and family
of Kilauea, spent Sunday visiting
with their parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Last Sunday three of the teach
ers o f the Kealia-Kapaa School,
made an excursion in an automo
bile. They visited the power house
at Wainihaand the caves at Ilaena.
As they passed through Hanalei,
they called on Mrs. Alii, the pri
mary teacher of the Hanalei School.
Last Tuesday Mr. F.J. Libby of
Magnolia, Mass., who is making a
tour of the world, came over to the
Hanalei School, much to the de
light of the pupils, and took pic
tures of the school grounds with
the pupils assembled around the
flag, and also a view of the school
Friday, November 3, the Japa-
i nese ot Hanalei did lull justice to
I the celebration of their Fmperor's
! birthday. At n o o n a Japanese
feast was spread, towhich theteach-
ers of the Hanalei School received
a cordial invitation. In the after
noon, names and races were a part
of the program as well a s fire
works. About fi v e o'clock the
people departed for their homes
and returned in the evening to wit
ness a grand display of fire works.
The Junior Kndeavor meetings,
which are attended each Friday
afternoon by a company of interest
ed children, bid fair to become
quite a factor for good in the Ha
nalei neighborhood. Last Friday
afternoon Mrs Alri chose for the
subject of her lessOn, "Kindness to
animals," which she made interest
ing by illustrations and stories as
well as by emphasizing the practi
cal side of the question.
If you should like to see things
grow just stand at one of the
school cottage windows and look
out upon the boys' Vegetable gar
den. Before scarcely a runner had
made its appearance the boys pro
vided tlie beans with poles. This
seemed to be such an encourage
ment to the beans that thev imme
diately sent forth their climbers,
which are so industrious that one
can fairly see them reach up ami
twine around their support.
