On Thanksgiving day services
were held in the church both in
the ' afternoon and evening. In
the afternoon an interesting
Thanksgiving program was carried
out at the Junior Christian En
deavor meeting.
Hans II. Gittel, representing
Hofschlaeger & Co., was at Ha
nalei last week on his farewell trip
as a traveling salesman. He has
been traveling for the past eight
years in the interest of the com
pany, and will now enter the firm

Mr. Jacobs will take his place on
the road.
The second and third grades of
the Hanalei school have caught
the spirit of gardening, and for
some weeks past have been pre
paring beds for seeding. A week
ago last Friday the third grade
boys planted their garden, and
last week the second grade boys
got their seeds all into the ground.
The first garden planted is doing
as well as could be expected; the
beans are blossoming, and some of
the radishes are large enough for
the market.
Monday night the Phllippinos
gave another exhibition i n the
Chinese club house, and the per
formance was even better than the
previous one. The show was well
attended each night, especially by
the school boys, who were not
only entertained by the acrobats
but were instructed as well, and
the free shows they have been giv
ing on the school grounds during
the week, and the way they made
their Indians and Pilgrims dance
the rope and cut other didos, when
illustrating their Thanksgiving
story, would indicate that they are
apt scholars in other things as well
as their books.
Woman's Suffrage
The adoption of woman suffrage
in California is likely to disturb the
balance of power throughout the
entire United States. There are
now six states in the union in
which equal suffrage prevails.
This provision has added to the
vote men cast, votes by women as
follows: California, 500,000; Co
lorado, 160,000; Idaho. 48,000;
Utah, 65,000; Washington, 120,
000; Wyoming, 35,000; total 928,
000. This vote of nearly 1,000.000
makes the result in the presiden
tial election very uncertain. It is
seldom that any president receives
a plurality as great as this. If the
women should unite on one candi
date, or if they should throw their
vote almost solidly to the Socialists,
there would be such a tremedous
political change as would amount
pratically to a revolution.
Although the Socialist party is
the only one in the United states
that has persistently from the first
declared for equal suffrage for wo
men, suffrage is coming by leaps
and bounds. There are now only
nineteen states in the union which
have no form of suffrage for wo
men, although some cities in some
of these states have that suffrage.
Kentucky was the first state in
the country to give women limited
suffrage; that was in 1836. Now
all the states in the union, except
Nevada, Texas, Missouri, Arkan
sas, Mississippi, Indiana, Tennes
see, Alabama, Florida, Georgia,
South Carolina, North Carolina,
Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania,
Rhode Island and Maine have some
of woman suffrage. In addition,
limited suffrage is granted in the
Isle of Man, New Zealand, South
and West Australia, New South
Wales, Tasmania, Queenslands,
Finland, Norway and Icelan.I.
It is estimated that the total
number of women in the world w ho
now enjoy a measure of suffrage
is 15,514,647. This is bigger than
any party in any country of the
A couple of good-roads stories
are going the rounds of the Pacific
Coast at present, which are oppor
tune, in view of the fact that every
body in this section of the country
is interested in the good roads
movement:
John Doe was on his road home.
His two-horse rig was plugging
along with its load. The barn was
only a quarter of a mile off, when
flop goes the front wheel into a big
bog hole and John went off his seat
into the mud. Spattered with mud,
and the axle of his wagon broken ,
John reached home in due time,
and after cooling down sufficient
ly, wrote his opinion of Supervis
ors, in general, to the county clerk,
and asked when the board was go
ing to get busy and put some gra
vel on his road.
Two or three days afterwards,
with no wagon, John had to saddle
one of the horses in order to go to
town. Returning homewards, the
horse stepped into a similar hole
and John left the saddle for the
more stable ground. Arriving
home he wrote a seco .d letter to
the supervisors with stronger opini
ons on the condition of roads, only
this time he did not want gravel on
the road at all. He wanted it up
holstered. This is a Mexican good road
story that may have a local flavor:
The American came back to the
states, a total wreck from its efforts
to construct a main highway from
one town to another. Said h-,
"They seem to have time to- burn
all the time down there, yet no
thing it done and no one can get
anything done." The nal shock
came when he tried to argue the
subject with a native official.
" Ho. v long does it take you to
bring a load into town?"
"About three days, senor."
"Well, if you had a good road
like I propose, you could do it in
less than a day."
"Si, senor, but what would we
do with those other two days?"
world. Womansuffrage is coming,
and Socialism, because of being
the only party in America that
advocates it, will receive a strong
vote from the women of America.
