Four year-" tign, the repub
lican party was virile, aggressive
and seemingly invincible.
Today i is wiped out of ex
istence simply because it defied
public opinions and public de
mands. And does this mean a
long lease of power for democracy?
Not a bit of it. If it takes a back
ward step, it will mean a pro
gressive president in 1916.
Wilson was elected because the
real progressives democrats and
republicans thought that he repre

I am enclosing the heading of

half the cost of getting the wire

very largely to the same.
If you take immediate action
on receipt of this, I feel sure that
it will take only 1-2 a day's work
to see us on an up-to-date footing
with the rest of the world, as it
was a disgrace to our Island pride
to have the news withdrawn when
only such a small sum was involv
ed, and so many denied the usual
privileges of civilization.
Thanking you in anticipation
I beg to remain. Sir,
Yours very truly,
The matter of furnishing wire
less news to our readers has re
ceived our careful consideration,
and as we could see no commercial
value in doing so, have passed it
up. As to the Maui News, etc.,
we will enlighten our correspon
dent on that score. All other is
lands have a daily mail service,
which enables their papers to pub
lisn the wireless news in a daily
form, thus getting some returns
for their outlay. Again, the Maui
News is owned and ran by planta
tion interests to whom the matter
of fifty dollsrs a month, is of small
concern. The best arrangements
we could get with the wireless
people, was fifty dollars per month.
We have done precisely what our
correspondent ask s telephoned
to various managers, without any
definite results. We have agreed
to relay the wireless messages to
the various plantations, free o f
charge, which, to our mind i s
about all that might be expected
of a firm in a position to realize no
monetary benefit from handling it.
Were we to publish the wireless
news, our reading matter would be
stale when the paper reached the
readers, for all such news will have
been read in the Honolulu papers
We regr t as deeply as anyone, the
discontinuation of the daily wire
less news, and stand ready to take-
up the matter of reopuning the ser
vice for the public at once, but
to expect this paper to expend the
sum of fifty dollars, or anv part of
said sum, under the present cir
cumstances, is simply out of the
question. However, we will act
upon "Herald's" advice and
see what can be done.
on the Board of Supervisors. Don't
it beat h--l? In thcfiist place no
attack has been made. I n the
second, place, if the supervisors
were so inclined, they have no
power to do either. In the third
place, if the double salary ques
tion is chocked up as a bluff, it
will prove one of the biggest
boom-er-rangs the gossios have had
to masticate for some time.
The time has come when the
people can dare say what they like
concerning governmental adminis
tration, and when an opinion is
expiessed in these columns, which
differs from that which vou may
have, please do yourself the credit
of having better sencc than to in
dulge in silly prattle until an in
vestigation proves you are right,
for it is almost alwaj'S an assured
fact that an editor is pretty sure
of what he is saving before he
says it. Investigate our statements,
and if we are found on the wrong
side, we will back peddle on the

the best interests of the island.
We do not believe that the Board
countenances Mr. Gay's inatten
tiveness to his duties as a super
visor any more than the ordinary
layman and in saying this we do
not wish to appear in the least
antagonistic toward M r . Gay,
whose value as a citizen, is too well
known to require further commen
dation from this paper.

Rebelling against what it styles
"almost a national disgrace," the
Clean Language League of Amer
ica has come into being as an or
ganization whose chief object is to
stop so much "cussin." Ours
is a God-fearing nation we are as
reverent as most people yet we
are naturally a profane country in
speech. In every part of the land,
swearing is almost too common. It
seems to be a national trait. We
are glad to see a nation-wide move
ment started against profanity.
It's a damn shame the way people
swear, anyhow, for it adds , noth
ing to the beauty of language or
the force of argument and con
sumes bieath unnecessarily.
Complaints have reached this
office regarding the apparent over
sight of the Lihue Plantation reU
ative to establishing signs for its
railroad crossings. There is no
law compelling the establishment
of such, yet the plantation has the
privilege of the use of the public
road for crossing purposes and
therefore to place conspicuous sign
boards at each crossing is a duty
it owes the public. The crossing
below the Hotel Fairview i s a
particularly dangerous one, it be
ing impossible to get a view of the
existence of a railroad until one is
so near the track that were a train
to be passing at the time, disaster
would surely follow.
The Garden Island has just
received a second article from Dr.
A. N. Sinclair, director of the
Anti-Tuberculosis work in Hawaii.
It is, if anything, even stronger
and more powerful than the one
which was published in this paper
some months ago and which was
commented on generally throiigh
outthe Island. It will be published
in next week's issue and the editor
recommends it to the earnest
study and attention of the readers
of The Garden Island.
The sermon by the Rev. J. M.
Lydgate at the Union Church last
Thursday was one of the most
timely addresses ever made i n
Lihue. Besides being unnique, it
dealt with such plain every day
facts in such a plain, every day
way, that every word with its full
meaning, went to the point. The
sermon in full appears in another
column and no reader should deny
himself the pleasure which a close
