volved should be, and is, sufficient
to do much towards undoing a
reputation of efficiency to which his
good work might have entitled
From afar off comes a cry that
the numerous school buildings
which are now under course of
construction, are be
CltlZetl ing built by Asiatics
Labor exclusively. That
not a single citizen is being em
ployed on the entire building pro
gram. If such were true, it would
be strange indeed, if it could be
shown that any discrimination has
been made against citizen labor.
From a prominent man, one who is
in a position to know, yet who is
not concerned any further than to
see the work completed as soon as
possible, we learned that the kick
is groundless in at least one in
stance, to his personal knowledge,
and that in his opinion, to use his
expression, "it's all a blame lie."
As a rule, carpenters are always
in great demand, the supply at all )
times being entirely inadequate to
the demand. This means that all
carpenters who are capable, find
steady employment with planta
tions, etc., and as a consequence
when special work is to be done
they do not feel disposed to give
u p a permanent place for a
temporary position even though
better wages are held out as an
inducement. Therefore, when a
building program of the magnitude
as the present school situation pre
sents itself, some extraordinary
means must be resorted to in order
to expedite matters, and to this
end, it is very likely that the
County has been forced to the fine
tooth method in gleaning carpen
ters to meet the emergency. It is
hardly possible that the County
Fathers would prefer non-citizen
labor if they could procure citizen
help. However, if they have re
sorted to such tactics, those who
are accusing them should produce
facts and not "whip the devil
around the bush."
Voters of Kauai County, you
men of moral worth, be sure to
cast vour vote with men who aro
willing to adminis-
AttontlOn! ter the County's
Voters affairs for the best
interests to the
largest numbei of its citizens and
not to the exclusive interests of a
small majority o f any powerful
taction as is often the case.
The people cannot rule if we
vote for men to make laws who
will vote against "County Unity'
or who vote to keep a "unity
law" in the hands of a commit
tee." Remember, that every
Ameiican citizen enjoys the high
privilege of casting his vote at the
general election where he can do
so, believing it will be for the
betterment of the whole people,
and not for the sole aim of satis
fying some domineering, despicable
click of professional politicans.
Thus far, Kauai has been free
from such conditions and such re
sults can only be maintained by
the proper use made of your un
tramled rights at the voting booth.
Therefore, choose your man, and
let no opportunity slip past, to
further the chances of his election.
The indefinite postponement of
the hearing of the damage suit
against the Kapaa land agent is
unfortunate as the
case is one in which
a violator of the law
is pretty sure to be
given a lesson he so richly de
serves. A peculiar phase of the
case, is the part which our county
attorney is taking in the matter.
Generally we would expect to find
the prosecuting attorney arrayed
against law-breakers, and not in
the role of prosecutor of those who
are endeavoring to uphold the law.
Prosecuting Attorney Kaeo who is
associated with Attorney Kauea
kua in prosecuting Miss Hundley,
should remember that the voice
of the people placed him where he
is, and that it is the voice of these
same people who demand that the
law which he has sworn to uphold,
be enforced and that the same peo
ple behind these voices are those
upon whom he must depend for
re-election in the present campaign.
The County Attorney's depart
ment has been conducted by Mr.
Kaeo in most cases in a very satis
factory manner, but such instances
as the one in which he is now in-
It is manifestly plain that the
violators of the stock law are
backed by a few self-assumed
leaders who practically
Shame say to us, that the
law shall b e sup
planted by rulings according to
their interpretations. T h e time
is at hand now when the people
are prepared to repudiate this self
assumed leadership by a select
few. We might just as well look
the conditions squarely in the face
lhere can be no compromise so
far as the matter of removing the
cancer of pretending to carry out
the laws. There is no half-way
place. Under the present condi
tions law means nothing. It is a
phantom and an hallucination.
