THAT suggestion that IIiv

POSTOFFICE have u postollico,
comment has been made, some of
which has been to the effect that
this paper "is in wrong" on the
subject. There i s always some
foolkiller who is found lined up
against progressiveness. The
plantation has expressed itself not
opposed to a postoffice in Hana-
maulu, and the people (not this
paper alone; want it and not only
tins, they are entitled to it.
It has been said that there are
no land owners in the district who
could bond a postmaster, and that
a location would be another con
siueration. As to a postmaster,
i. T T . I

nave stated that they would act
without salary if onlv a postoffice
could be given the district. As to
bondsmen: Is it not just as rea
sonable to expect the L,ihuc
Plantation to come to the aid of
the hundreds of its people in one
place as another?
We have been instructed to get
a man who will serve as postmaster,
secure a location, get a bondsman,
tnen get up our petition. How
much better it would be (and we
believe it will do so) for t h e
plantation to say: "if you want a
postoffice, we will help you by
putting it in our store, and bond
ing you as well. Now get out your
petition." This would be a system
which is usualy followed and one
which would be of lasting benefit
both to plantation and employees..
The question of freo -ral de
livery has been orth as an
argument against the establish
ment of a postoffice for Hanama
ulu, but when we consider that
the western march of free rural
delivery has only of late invaded
the middle western states and that
many yenrs may pass before we
are entitled to this luxury, the
ueiiying ourselves ot everv-dav
accomodations which are right
fully ours, seems a folly which is

POLITICAL diner from them in
SERMON politics. There is par
ticular dancer o f
this now, when political parties
are oeing rent asunder and realign
ment under way. What makes a
man worthy to be your friend is
not his opinion on the tariff or on
reciprocity, or the integrity of
Taft or Roosevelt or Wilson, but
his honesty, his integrity; not his
head-power, mainly, but his heart
power; his sterling manhood. We
have had no trouble in finding
such friends among Democrats,
among Socialists so-called, among
Catholics, among Protestants, and
among m e n affiliated with no
church. We plead with the dem
ocrat not to lose confidence in his
democratic friend who cannot see
his way clear to vote for Wood
row; and with the republican not
to lose confidence in his old-time
republican friend who thinks it
his duty to stand by "my dear
Will," or the one who feels he
must support "my dear Theo
dore." Friendship is too sacred a
thing to be sacrificed for a differ
ence of political opinion.
Don't imagine that this cam
paign will usher in the political
milennium. It is after all only a
skirmish in the age-long warfare
between right or wrong, in which
good men often get on the side
which they think for a time is
right, but which in the end proves
to be wrong, themselves being the
judges; and in which bad men
sometimes get on the right side for
the time being, and bring the
cause into disrepute. There will
be wrongs to right after Novem:
ber and after other Novemlers fof
hundreds of years, even until the
end of time.
Therefore, don't waste your
breath. You know it will be
wasted, if you but stop to think.
Don't lose confidence in your
friends who do not see it as you
do. Make u p your mind con
scientiously where your duty lies,
and do it "with malice toward
none and charity toward all."
