"The Garden Island gives a
better account of our baseball
games than the Honolulu papers
do," said one of our prominent
ball players. Thank ye sir.
There is altogether too much
criticism thrown at our umpires.

When you find yourself dissatis
fied, it is best to go off into some
quiet retreat and have it out with
yourself. There is no room for a
grvmbler anywhere, much less at a
good ball game.
Johnson has signed that anti
alien land bill, evidently not givin'
a continental hoop what Japan
thinks about the matter. Guess he'll
sign the free sugar bill next.

out the educational requirements.
He is going right ahead with his

It is said that among those who
are signing up for homestead lots
in the Kapaa lauds, are men who
have declared their intentions to
become citizens but who are un
able to write their names. That
there are some of these same men
who will probably never become
any more of a citizen than they
are today. It strikes us that about
the only man who should be re
cognized in the deal, is the full-
fledged, dyed-in-the-wool citizen.
It appears now as if about everv

are very few people who will be
convinced of a cause which is taken
up in the manner in which the
crusade against Mr. Frazer was
conducted. If the tfuth were
known, it would no doubt reveal
the fact that many statements
accredited to the Honolulu women,
were of a somewhat doubtful
nature. A good, manful light is
always appreciated, but one i n

In dealing with the Hanamaulu
postoffice situation, The Garden
Island considers itself sponsor for
the best interests of the citizens of
Hanamaulu. For months past, it
has modestly endeavored to keep
the germ of expectation alive in the
hearts of its citizens, and it feels
that the plantation has been given
ample time in which to declare it's
intentions in the1 matter. This, for
some unknown reason, it has not
done, probably desiring to allow
the matter to drag along as did the
'crossing" campaign. In our con
tention for a postoffice, we feel that
an effort is being made for the best
interest of the people, and under no
circumstances will we swerve from
this course so long as we are so
firmly convinced of this idea. We
recognize no influence which has
for its motives, other than the
welfare of the citizen at large
This paper has no grievance with
the Lihue Plantation nor with any
one connected therewith. It i
simply the fact that it rests in the
power of those at the head of the

favor to its employees, without the

their ultimate intentions.

up about it.
