in last issue, it must be understood
that if a newspaper is to do its
duty bv the public which it serves
it is under the frequent necessity
of printing news of importance to
the public that subjects it to at
tack. The risk that a newspaper
assumes in doing this is part of the
day's work, and is accepted cheer
fully by every editor who recog
nizes his obligations to the com
munity. It would be much easier.
of course, to play safe and refrain
from giving publicity to news that
is likely to arouse anger and resent
ment, and to lead to litigation.
But such a policv would be un
worthy o f any newspaper that
assumes to deserve public confi
dence. Every responsible publi
cation feels keenly the need of
using the utmost care not to do
individuals a n injustice in its
columns. It feels just as keenly
however, its obligation not to be
frightened out of doing justice to
society by suppressing news of
vital importance. A n apprecia
tion of these facts by the com
munity, as well as by the news
paper, is essential to the preserva

the press which is so important for

The following pathetic little
letter reached the editor's desk
Saturday, having been mailed in
Lihue Dec. 16, 1912, and by some
ill-fated turn miscarried. We re

ever, even a t this late hour, i n
answering at once and thus pro

our great gratification that its

Virginia, your little friends are
wrong, lhey do not believe un
less they see. They think that
nothing can be that is not com
prehensible to their little minds.
All minds, Virginia, whether they
be men's or children's, are little.
In this great world of ours, man
is a mere insect in his intellect as
compared w i t h the boundless
world above him. Yes. Virginia
there is a Santa Clans. He exists
as certainly as love and generosity
and devotion exists. Alas! how
drearv would this world be if there
were no Santa Claus. It would be
as drearv a if there were no Vir
ginias. There would be no child
like taith then. We should hav
no enjoyment except in sense and
sight. Not believe in Santa Claus?
You might as well not believe in
fairies. You might get your papa
to hire the entire Lihue police
force to watch for him. but what
would that prove? It is true that
nobody sees Santa Claus, but that
is no sign that there is no Santa
