The suggestion by Promotion
Commissioner Z. K. Myers, to the
eftct that the promotion commit
tee should have a representative
on each isl&ad, is one of the best
promotion ideas that has ever bten
brought out. There may not be
grounds for t h e tnanv charges
that Honolulu knocks the out-
sine isiauoe, nut tne tact remains
that there is not much doing in
the tourist business outside o f
Hilo and Oahu, This, t has been
charged y jwetty good authority ,
is due in a great measure, to the
lack o f interest gnx-n the islands
in question by the members of
ine promotion committee. AVitn a
member of this body on Kauai,
the people w o u 1 d have every
reason t o expect better results.
Not on account of the apparent
'lack of interest which it nov.-shown
by tho committee, but such a man
would be in the field and would
mereiore ne in a position to see
that we got fair play. The diffi
ciilty in the selection of the Kauai
juemiK-r, howe-er, would be con-
sioeraoie since mere are so many
men qualified for the work. An
ainajidmenl to Mr. Myer's sugges

asks an exchange. Well, we are
in a position to answer definitely
in wv negative lorm in so tar as
one particular school is concerned
and if the editor of the exchange
will investigate matters iubt a bit
closer than he is in the habit of
doing before he pursues the sub
ject further he will find that if the
rolls are "padded" that the teacher
will not be found to be so much
to blame as the department of
public instruction At the end ot
the last school year, orders were
issued to the principals requesting
them to round up every child of
school age in the community of
th'.-ir respective schools, with the
view to increasing the enrollment
to a certain limit in order to secure
larger appropriations for the com
ing year. As a result, m a u y
principal, iis is only natural to
suppose, in their desire to carry
out the instructions they had re
ceived, probably gathered in a few
who were not yet of school age, o r
we will say, six years of age. At
least such was the condition in the
school referred to above, at the
opening of the fall term. As soon
as the discovery was made, the
present principal sorted out those
concerning that counter-petition,

petition in question, while they'
are not known, are said by one!
of our representatives to be ibos- t
of irresponsible parties. That the i
plantation k oomg its utmost to
bead off the homesteading scheme 1
is thereby sufficiently indicated to
emphasize its stand in the in -.t'er.
Xaturallv enough, this a.t:tud'.
upon the part of the plantation
interests, is, from its point of vi.v .
very good and well, but what are
the homesteaders to do in the '
matter? Sit idlv by and allow cor
porations to run the officials whov
duty it is to carry out the wifhes'
of the people in preference to a
few frenzied financiers?
If J. P. Cook, or any other i;di
vidual takes it upon himself to'
shape the destiny of our people,
he will find that the undertal ing
is far beyond any expectations
which his little mutt can imag ne.

To learn that those who signed
the counter-petition are "irrespo i

since ordinary intelligence will

another could not. The laud com
