TO (HH'stiiiKinforniHtion on
ORGANIZE the organization of
lalinr in this Territory
in re the rumor of a recent attempt
by coast agents. From the best
information we have at hand, we
learn that the right of organization
on the part of labor is not recog
nized by the laws of the United
States. However, if capital can,
and does organize, then it stands
to every standard of reason we
ever heard of that anybody else
who has a legitimate object, mav
organize, and there should by all
means be an absolute equality in
regard to that right.
We d o not mean t o defend
anything organized labor has
done. Organized labor has
been unwise in many things, but
that is anothei story. At present
there seems no legal right to or
ganize. Of course the law must
regulate what capital can do with
its organisation, and we will all of
us agree that the law ought also
to regulate what organized labor
can do with its organization. The
dealing of one great body of men
with other bodies o t men is a
matter for public scrutiny and
should be at all times, a matter for
public regulation.
AFTER INFORMATION
writer kindly requested the mem
bers of the Board to build a sepa
rate cottage providing such would
not prove too expensive. After
due consideration, the Board
granted the request, and a cottage
costing an even thousand dollars,
and containing two small bed
rooms, a bath, a kitchen, a very
small dining room and parlor, has
been partly completed. That
is, the carpentry work has been
completed, but as fundj are now
exhausted, there can be no
plumbing nor painting clone until
after the first of the year. In the
meantime, six teachers occupy a
four room cottage and a tent in the
yard, facts which apparently failed
to be observed by Mi . Observer.

The Garden Island is always
willing to oblige its friends by
printing society announcements
which will be of interest (not for
money making enterprises) es
pecially when those friends have
helped to maintain the paper by
paying for it and by their ih-
fhience. Such friends are usually
thoughtful enough t o bring or
send such notices early i n the
week when copy can be handled
with convenience. But when
those who never liad enough in
terest in The Garden Island to
subscribe and pay for it, ask us to
leave our work on press day, take
dictation over the telephone, lick
their stuff into shape and pay for
having it put into type, delaying
other work well, language (Eng
lish, German, sacred or profane)
is simply weak aud inadequate.
Friends, we have quit doing that
sort of thing.
Editor Garden Island,
Dear Sir:
Having observed a decided ten
dency upon the part of your paper
to speak frankly on public affairs,
I beg that you will find sufficient
merit in the following few lines to
grant them space in its valuable
columns:
Being a taxpayer, and general
observer of things as they go,
must account in a measure for
my views in regard to the manner
in which the county fathers are
administering affairs in so much
as our public schools are concern
ed. It has been brought to my
attention more than once,
that the Lihue school receives first
consideration in every instance
In other words, the impression
that the above school gets about
all it asks for, seems general. If
any school improvements are to be
made, cottages to be built, new
furniture, etc., Lihue school can
always be counted on to the last
detail, while other schools are
forced to put up with "we cannot
furnish all just yet," or some
other excuse equally as satisfac
tory (?). I do not know, nor do I
say, that the Board of Supervisors
do or do not show partiallity in
such instances, but the fact re
mains that the Lihue School is
furnished with single desks while
not more than 18 miles distant,
schools are using old wooden desks
which indicate by lines and gashes,
the dates when the fathers of the
present school population were in
school. I note also the fact that
the grounds of the Lihue school
are looked after by county em
ployed labor. I mention these
two specific facts, as matters of
personal observation, desiring to
be absolutely just in my conten
tion. There is also a school in
Hanamaulu where the Board elect
ed an additional two rooms, and
t h e n changed i t s Honorable
opinion and built a thousand dol
lar cottage. Is this fair to the
other districts?
Observer.
Editor's Note:
As to the Lihue school getting
the big end of the bargain in re
gard to equipment, etc., we will
not discuss, but as Ye Editor has
the honor of being the principal
of the Hanamaulu school, he natu
rally feels that it devolves upon
him to correct as far as possible
auv misconception of the real sit
uation which readers may form by
reading the opinion of Mr. "Ob
server." The Hanamaulu school has six
rooms, thus ne essitating accomo
dation for as many teachers. The
teachers' cottage lias but four bed
rooms, and at a meeting last
summer, the board decided to add
two additional rooms.
Feeling that it w on Id be
pleasanter to be able to enjoy a
greater degree ot privacy than all
living together would permit, the
The workiugman groaning un
der the burden of the constant
increase in the cost of living com
modities, is finally rebelling
against the thread-worn cry o f
the. greedy monopolists, that the
high cost of living is due to the
fact that our population has in
creased faster than our production.
Can these blook-sucking trusts
even imagine the working men
are to be fooled any longer by
such rot as this? Not on your
trust-ridden life. The people have
their eyes opened at last, and they
are going to tear up this gigantic
robber system, root and branch.
While many of the republicans
are prophesying that the country
will go to the bow-wows under
democratic rule, they should .re
member that it has been none
other than republicans who have
employed tariff duties as a means
of fostering special privileges. The
forces of our nation are asserting
themselves against every form of
special privilege and private con
trol. No group of directors,
economic or pol'tical, can speak
for a people. Our government
has much more to do than merely
to set the house in order.
Now that Roosevelt is recover
ing, we may be pardoned if we
refer to an important omission on
the part of the obiquitous report
ers who disclosed to an anxious
public the surroundings attending
the Colonel's detention at the
Mercy hospital in Chicago, the
names and personal description of
his nurses and other minutiae of
absorbing interest to a waiting and
pulseless world. The reporters
failed to tell us what kind of a
night shirt the Colonel wore.
IIoNoi.n.r society was recently
given a sermon from one of its
leading pulpits on "how to choose
a husband or wife." We ken not
the scheme the Rev. Gentleman
offered a feller who wislied t o
claim a wife, but its buttons to
fish-hooks if it can be worked
successfully, i t will skin every
patent right granted His Satanic
Majesty, by a mile.
It is reported that a man in
California was fined $15 for kiss
ing the arm of a suflragette while
the latter stood in a line at the
polls. It strikes us that the arm
of the law was just a trifle too se
vereunless, of course, the arm
was a pretty, round, plump one,
in which case the fine is rcdic
ulously low.
