Ever since the inauguration of
the Lihue Library, some 12 years
ago, it has been its custom, once a
vear, to come before the public,
hat in liand, and beg the favorable
consideration of its generous
patrons. Heretofore it has done
this generally in conne'etion with
a Fair, or Bazaar, or Play. This
year bjjJay of change it comes
with a flirect appeal for a cash
subscription. And it does so with
out hesitation, and with the confi
dent assurance of a favorable hear
ing. The membership is small, and
the annual fee very small only
$1.00, so that only a trifling income
can be counted o n from this
source. And other similar libraries
charge commonly $5.00 for the
annual fee and have a very much
larger patronage. On the other hand
in delivering the books to the
homes of its patrons, it does more
than other libraries undertake t o
do. It depends on funds raised
by special effort, and is worthy
of assistance on such occasions.
It is a benefaction which must
appeal to all the intelligent
classes of the community alike. We
may differ in regard to some other
forms of philanthropy,' but good
books we will all recognize as a
most valuable asset and most
iiljfVinj? influence in a community
Accordingly I commend the
Library to your kindlv considera

OPPORTUN T ES
If old Jehu of ancient renown
for speed could come back in these
later days, and sec the way some
of his modern descendents among
the chauffers g o flying round
corners and through other danger
ous places h e would hide his
diminished head ill shame. And
some of these modern descendents
of his will c o tn c to grief one
these davs on soihc one of these
dangerous places here in Lihue.
And then I may have the satis
faction of saying "I told you so!"
I would just like to register my
prophecy and point out where it
will be. The exit from the Hotel
gate which i s so obscured b v
bushes and trees that you have to
divine what's coming you can't
sec the railroad crossing below
the hotel where a rushing loco
motive and a train of cars are
liable to fall upon you out of the
covert ambush of the adjoining
field o f high cane; the school
corner, where the fragrant thicket
of oleanders crowds over onto the
narrow way and conceals the im
pending danger, rapidly approach
ing just round the corner. The
little blind trail at the back of the
school yard where the children
come pouring down into the road
like an unrestrained avalanche
with all the back pressure o f
school behind them, as heedless
of danger as the winds of heaven.

By Doctor Sinclair
In a previous paper i n The
Gardkn Island I called attention
to the campaign against pulmo
nary tuberculosis, or consumption,
the impetus being given it and the
necessity of public interest Before
that is entirely out of mind, per
mit me to add to it a further sum
mary of its relation to the public.
Statistics are handled with diffi-
cuty. Asa means of conveying a
clear impression of a subject they
are not always satisfactory. For
the use of the active workers
whose duties lead them t o the
study and analysis of conditions,
statistics arc a necessity but not
to the casual reader who is here
in h i s subject today and from
whom the subject has gone to
morrow. I would prefer to call
your attention to a less tangible
phase of the tuberculosis campaign
than that set forth in statistics.
A modern problem that has
arisen through modern methods of
business is combining public senti
ment. San Francisco considered
its Panama-Pacific Exposition as
it would a distinctly commercial
enterprise and makes it possible
by the way its" leaders have united
the city, painting on the popular
mind with a few broad, masterly
strokes, a clear perspective of
everything that the exposition
means to everyone in the city. The
picture they created was intimate,
its details attractive to the rich
and humble alike; its answer was
such as to flatter the most exact
ing of artists. .
If public sentiment in Hawaii
could be combined with equal suc
cess as regards the figlit on tuber
culosis which is no less a distinct
ly commercial enterprise, results
would soon be as apparent as they
are in San Fran-isco regarding the
fair. It will be just as impossible
to Wipe out the disease in this
Territory without combined in
terest as it would have been in tha
Golden Gate City to build fifteen
million dollars' worth of exposition
palaces without it. It was n o t
enough to awaken interest in the
pocket books of that portion of the
city's population whose business
might be expected to increase dur
ing fair prosperity. It was neces-v
sary to excite and enlist the sym
pathies of the humble hack driver
to whom it meant but a few extra
fares or the saloon hanger on pick
ing up odd drinks who might ex
pect nothing but disadvantages.
The commercial barons might
have built the palaces; the loyalty
and enthusiasm of the rest of the
city was necessary to send a tele
pathic wave out of ban prancisco
that assured the world that the
Fair would be a success. It will
be the second element, not the
first, that accomplishes the almost
impossible feat. It will be that
element, that air of preordained
success that will enlist enthusiasm
in the cause against tuberculosis
in the Territory.
For that reason, by the slow
processes that must be used, pub
lic interest in Hawaii in the anti
tuberculosis campaign must b e
aroused. The sanatariums and the
government officials might be able
to cure tuberculosis. It will 'not
altogether be wiped out until the
whole Territory's figurative shoe
is set down upon this single blot
with all the firmness and deter
mination with which the ordinary
individual would put his brogan
on a scorpion.
For obvious reasons this task of
awakening public interest is hard-

Elsie Wilcox, Miss Ayer, Mrs.
Hills and Miss O'Counch. The
last scene in particular was very
well rendered and very effective.
The work committee deserve a
great deal of credit for the results
they attain under most adverse
circumstances, not the least o f
which is. scarcity of books.
