having licked Russia while it
was drunk, Japan has felt its im

ponese now propose to dictate to
the sovereign state of California
just what kind of state "laws it
must pass. With a sunreine im
pudencc the Japanese aiybassador
at Washington says that Cal for
nia must make changes in the
Alien land bill which has passed
the legislature of that State. I.ucki
ly there is a president at Washing
ion wno recognizes tne nglits ot a
state to make its own laws, nro-
vided that they do not conflict with
the federal constitution and Japan
is barking up the wrong tree.

The Garden Island is in re
ceipt of a letter from the' Christian
Unity Foundation Society in New
York, asking us to co-operate in
the union of the Christian and
Episcopal Churches. We don't sec
how it can be done. The amount
of water required for a "comelite"
would drown an Episcopalian.
There is a good deal of mis
apprehension in regard to the pro
visions of the income tax. Many
people think that if a man has an
income of $4,000 per year, he must
pay one per cent of it to Uncle
Sam. He must pay on the earnings
in excess of the $4,000. For in
stance, if you have an income of
$4,100, you pay one per cent of
$100.00. This provision is a lucky
thing for Ye Editor as his salary
is just $4,000 when he gets to
dreaming right good.
"Viit the jH-ople put on their backs

The idea of the president of the
United States making such a course
remark t-o offend the cultured
gentlemen who dictate the price of
food and clothing i s something
outrageous. The country has cer
tainly fallen into mighty common
ways when the chief executive
feels it incumbent upon himself to
worry about what the common
people eat and wear, or rather,
what thev want to eat and wear.
The law-makeis and breakers
arc home again, having acquitted
themselves with the faithfulness
which is always the standard of
Kauai's public men. Our new rc
nresentatives got right down to
business and stretched their traces
along with the "old" horses, and
the disaster predicted by the sever
ranee of "Kauai's Big Four," fail
ed to materialize. A close obser
vance of the daily doings of the
legislative session will indicate the
fact that aboul everything that was
worth while cither emulated o r
was carried through bv the Kauai
delegation.! Rest on your oars

It will be observed that in the
school fight in Honolulu, no
teachers other than those in the
city of Honolulu are greatly con
cerned Just why this is the case,
the ordinary observer cannot say,
bitt it is probably indicative of
sonic influence at work. That the
investigating committee was com
posed of prejudiced men is entirely
erroneous. Kauai's representative
member on this board was Hon. R.
P. Spalding, a man too well known
as one of Kauai's leading citizens,
to allow of any such charge being
brought against him.
T h e other members, Messrs.
Paxson and Peiihallow, are also
known by the writer, personally,
and are men of excellent judgment.
The superintendent in his reply to
the committee's report, stated that
only witnesses antagonistic to the
department were summoned , As
the writer was cue of those sum
moned, h e takes exception t o
this statement. We have no per
sonal grievance with the depart
ment, but we do contend that those
responsible for the present im
practical salary schedule, and the
theoretical course of study, could
have, and should have given both
subjects ear-marks of a little more
common sense. The investigation
in so far as we know, was of an im
personal nature, Mr. Pope's name,
as near as can be remembered, not
being mentioned during our hear
ing. Our evidence was confined to
"salary schedule and coarse of
study," andthere was no iudica
tion whatever at any attempt upon
tne part ot tlie investigators to
deal in other than an absolutely
lair manner with all concerned. It
doesn't do the department officials
auv good to accuse such men as
R. P. Spalding of being other than
men incapable of the "get even
spirit, intcli accusations can enn
nate only from a narrow-minded
ness which is entirely foreign to
those who are capable of directing
departments of the importance of
the Board ot Education.
