The beautiful new church a t
Hanalei, the gift of the Wilcox
Brothers to the local community,
was dedicated Sunday morning
Oct. 20th. There was a large
audience from all parts of the Is
1 a n d in spite of unpropitiotts
A corner stone service prcceeded
the dedic'iy-'. in connection with
which Rev. W. B. Oleson gave a
brief resume of the history of the
church. A hermetically sealed
copper box containing the current
newspapers of the day including
Tin! Garden Island was placed in
a recess in the corner stone and
cemeiited in by Mrs. S. V. Wil
cox. The program of the dedication
was as follows:
Hymn by the Congregation
Reading of Scripture Rev. S.
Prayer Pastor Rev. J. A. Akina
Anthem by the choir
Transfer of the keys by Mr. S.
W. Wilcox to the Trustees
Response from the church. Rev.
D. P. Mahihila
Sermon Rev. Wm. Kaniati
Dedicatory Prayer Rev. I. K.
The church was beautifully de
coratec'&r the occasion by some
of the liities of Hanalei.
'Khe absence of Mr. and Mrs. A.
S. Wilcox owing to serious illness
in the family was a great disap
pointment and was more to be re
ytftted as the gift was in the first
.nstance due to his generous initia
tive. The new church is in every way
a credit to the donors being com
modious, artistic comfortable and
thoroughly well built.
The old church will be used
henceforth as a public ball but

According to a story told by a
returning Kauai citizen from Ho
nolulu the other day, an excited
man rushed up to a moving pic
ture theater in Honolulu one night
last week and breathlessly informed
the pretty ticket seller who stood
at the window, that his wife was in
the theater with another man, and
that he was going to shoot them as
they came out.
A crowd gathered and the young
lady beat it back to notify the man
ager, who, to avoid bloodshed,
mounted the stage and announced
to the audience that a man outside
was wailing to kill his wife and
the man with her. He suggested
that the couple leave the theater
by the rear exit, and within five
minutes, no less than eleven pairs
had hurried from the theater bv
the back door.

T h e Socialist organization of
Hawaii is an organic part of the
Socialist partv of the United States.
It is in harmony with the princi
ples of the International Socialist
movement and endorses the princi
ples stated in the platform of the
national Socialist party adopted
at its convention in May, 1912.
The Socialist party is the politi
cal expression of the economic
needs o f the workers. It is a1
manifestation of the class struggle
which has its cause in the conflict
ing economic interests of t h e
capitalist and working classes.
The present, or capitalist system
of production is a complete failure
in as much as it is incapable of
providing for the needs of society,
as is shown by the decreasing pur
chasing power of wages, the mil
lions of unemployed, the property-
less wage-workers, the exploita
tion of women and children, and
by the fact that more than one
half of the people of the United
States live in poverty and want,
while enormous accumulations of
wealth are concentrated i n the
hands of a few. These few own
and control most of the land and
the instruments of production.
By virt tire of this ownership they
hold the working class, which
constitutes the vast majority, in
a state of dependence, 'lhey ap
propriate to themselves three-
fourths of the product o f the

Convention At Hanalei
The Seini-Annual Association of
the Kauai Churches met on Friday
morning Oct 18 at Hanalei instead
of Lihue where the convention is
generally lielU. The reason for
the change of place was the dedica
tion of the new church which took
place on Sunday in connection
with the work of the convention.
The Hawaiian Board was repre
sented by the presence of the Sec
retary Rev. Wm. B. Oleson and the
Superintendent of the Hawaiian
Department. Rev. J. P. Erdinan
and Rev. Akaiko Akana represent
ed the interests of the Sunday
Schools and C. E. Associations.
Among other matters of import
ance tlie toiiowing are ot special
A special delegation arrived
during the meeting from Niihau
representing the people of that
Island. This is the first repre
sentation from tliere in modern
times and much interest was de
veloped in the graphic and elo
quent account oi the old deacon
who looked with more or less of
suspicion o n tlie amenities and
new fangled notions and customs
of the modern church. According
to his story they cling tenacious
ly and fondly to the ways of- the
fathers a u d eschew modern in
novations. Attention was ealleu to t li e
somewhat precarious situation of
some of our churches under Amer
ican Law b y virtue of the fact
that few of them are incorporated
bodies. As such tney Have n o
legal standing and may not legally
acquire and hold property. Such
churches are earnestly advised
either to incorporate or to make
the Hawaiian Board their Trustee
to act for them in all legal matters.
Furthermore many churches have
no constitution and by-laws and
are accordingly being very irreg
A good deal of warmth was
generated by the failure of the
Japanese churches to be represent
ed in person,. In order to save
expense in transportation, enter
tainment, etc., the ministers o f
these churches acting under ad
vice, staid at home, sending how
ever written reports ot t li e l r
churches. There was a strong
feeling that these reports should
not be accepted and that the send
ers ot tneni snouiu ne severely
reprimanded or even punished in
some wav. Any tentlency to
economy is exceedingly reprehen
sible to the Hawaiian mind; they,
the Hawalians had whacked up"
their automobile hire like men and
they didn't see why the Japs
couldn't do the same. And if this
sort of thing was going to continue
soon we would have a convention
made up of report blanks instead
Finally, however, when the
squall nau blown over, a saner
Advices from London would in
dicate that the woman suffrage
movement has reached the limit,
the latest nation in the campaign
being a nation of starving people.
They show a slight indication of
good taste however, in setting the
data for the beginning of a pro
longed starvation period after the
Christmas holidays. Suffragettes
throughout England have volun
teered to join the hunger strike.
Circulars explaining the propo
sition are being widely circulated
and many prominent suffragettes
say it is a fine idea and declare
they will conform tn it. They
evidently hope by starving, to call
the attention of the world to their
cause. It will no doubt do them
good after the holiday gorge, in
fact it sounds pretty good to the
hen-pecked husband, who finds it
impossible to hold his own with
his better half. All that -will be
necessary for him to do will be to,
encourage her to be true to her
cause and in less than six months
he can rest assured that he will
have about all the physical strength
of the family. Her complexion
will be gone, a nervous wreck will
be her lot and Mr. Henpeck will
without protest, become the ruler.
The woman suffrage cause may
be all right, but when such ex
treme measures are taken to gain
sympathy for their cause, as will
injure the health, the advocates of
such measures are doing that which
cannot be reconciled with common
sense in the eyes of inteligent
people. By taking such a stand,
they show at once, their inability'
t o think seriously upon affairs
which would necessitate their as
sistance as voters, were they given
the privilege. There is no country
in existence where woman is more,
universally respected than in the
United States, and if such a stand
as that which our English cousins
have taken, should be inaugurated
here chances are that these con
ditions would suffer a radical
