Other places go crazy but few
quite so quickly as Honolulu.
Guess thats a fact.
Now that Roosevelt's hat is in
the ring, what will he do for some
thing to talk through?
Four years ago Roosevelt did
not believe in a presidential pri
mary at least not out loud.
Now that the harbor matter is
settled it is up to the Kauai Rail
road Co., to come through with
that railroad extension.
A Correspondent writes us,
asking if we really "know what an
oiled road is." An oiled road, in
our opinion, is a mighty slippery
It isn't the cost of living that
hurts; it's the price of living. If
what we use was sold at cost, as it
should be, it would be cheap
The Annanias club has a new
member, a mysterious stranger
who approaches with the words:
"Under no circumstances will I be
a candidate," and "I will accept."
What about that press club that
was mooted some time ago? There
are a number of newspapermen in
town now, and a start could be
made on the project. Bill Lang

The long expected is about to
materialize Lihue is to get her
town site. Five acres are to be
devoted to a site for the County
buildings, while ample room will
be provided for all the necessary
dwellings which will be required
for some time to come. Plans and
specifications are being drawn up
and a map of the complete town
site will soon be given to the
The various demonstrations by
the Chinese in expressing their
pleasure over the outcome of the
Revolution which has given them
freedom and liberty, are events
which parall those which were
made by our fore-fathers at the
conclusion of the rebellion.
Every American's heart goes out
to the liberty loving people and the
citizens of this great, New Republic
can rest assured of the aloha of one
of her greatest sister Republics.
With the town site, should come
that Chamber of Commerce. With
a million dollar harbor knocking
at our door, and the many other
advantages w e have over Maui,
are we to sit idly by and let the
moss accumulate on our backs?
Its up to every citizen to do his
share of boosting for Lihue, and
he that does less, would better
change his residence to Honolulu
and join the "knocker" club.
We certainly have no place for
such a person here.
Tin; rumor that a hotel is to be
erected in the vicinity of the Olo
kele Canyon has not been confirm
ed, but in the words of the old
saying, "where there is so much
smoke there must be a little fire,"
there is hopes of some truth to
the rumor. The recent assurance
from a man no less than the well
known artist, Pillsbury, to the ef
fect that in no other part of the
world is to be found such won-j
derful glimpses of natural beauty,
would warrant more than a pass
ing consideration of a hotel pro
ject in this vicinity,
The Garden Island would
rather be in the minority and be
right than in the majority and all
wrong. Happily we arc generally
both right and in the majority too.
It is far from even the least inten
tion o f this paper t o unjustly
criticise any person or concern.
However, we will not shrink one
iota from discussing any subject
which we feel to be one of public
interest. The only way for those
who are so particular as to what
is said about them in these columns,
to avoid such publicity, is to so
conduct themselves as to give no
cause for unfavorable comment.
The Kekaha riot case, wherein
fourteen Japanese were indicted
charged with murder in the first de
gree, presents a condition of affairs
the like of which has never before
existed on Kauai. That some one
or more of those so indicted may
be innocent, is not altogether im
probable, yet there is no reason to
hold n-.iv ot llicin not guilty. The
delibeuKe btoniug to death of a
fellow countryman, and an official
of the law at that, is an act which
warrants drastic measures. Blow
ing out all lights and using a cll
for a riot, following this by cold
blooded murder, constitutes a state
of affairs, which, if permitted to
continue unchecked would very
soon lead to consequences of such a
nature as to be beyond ordinary
HOME TO ROOST
Col. Roosevelt was the first man
who ever attained the highest poli
tical position in the land, and the
first to receive the conventional
homage due to a gentleman, who
cultivated the habit of calling men
liars as if it were a manly and cou
He was successful in populariz
ing rough-neckism. Popular mo
dels for a hundred years have been
of a different sort. We have look
ed with interest at the figure in
buckskin, at the individual who
spoke in terms unknown to the
well bred; but always such figures
have been made to stand on one
side when the point of the drama
was being driven home, and men
who conformed to the rules laid
down for the guidance of gentle
men, occupied the middle of the
Col. Roosevelt's indelicacies of
deed and speech were indulgently
regarded as a species of native ro
bustiousness. His banal remarks
on the subjects of ethics and states
manship have been accepted as
sound and even undiscovered doc
trines. .His impertinences have
been called proof of a virile Amer
icanism. When Col. Roosevelt vi
sited countries in Europe in which
the much-ridiculed Col. Bryan
was remembered with respect, he
was recognized as a crude, rude
person who could not have been
rated highly by any save a people
who are noted for jumping to con
clusions. Now that this extraordinary
man has deliberately falsified his
own record, the word liar, which
formerly filled his admirers with
delicious excitement, begins to as
sume its proper significance.
