If the price of beet continues to

The average tariff is cut from
43 to 32 per cent in the democratic
tariff bill. And this little old 11
per cent is scaring the poor old
"interests" to death.

It's always the man who begins
life at the bottom of the ladder who
lords i t over his less fortunate
brothers when pure luck and brain
is responsible for his elevation. It
is impossible for such men to real
ize that others have any rights.
Champ Clark pays dearly f o r
his fame. They are naming babies
for him, and this is fraught with
aangerous possibilities. There is
more than one George Washington

Lincoln in the penitentiaries in this
This rjaner is in reeeint nf nn nr1
vertisement announcing the open
ing of a new bank in Honolulu and
the gentleman who sent it says that
we can publish it if we think it is
worth while. It is certainly worth
while. It is worth about S5.
tion every Sunday evening. Make
it a good, cold stein and cheese
brother, and you'll have no diflcul
ty in having full houses. Of course
there'd be many among your dear
bretheren who might prefer the
same secrecy as is maintained at
present, but give them time to be
come frank and honest men and
they will no doubt develop into ar
dent church workers. The aver
age sermon now-a-days has u
tendency to drive one to drink,
anyhow, and a well filled cold-sto
rage plant conveniently arranged
in every church would keep many
a man outot tlie saloon.
We would like to suggest that
th j new superintendent of public
instruction adopt some more satis
factory way of marking teachers.
A teacher has a right t o know
how she is being marked and any
supervising principal possessing a
spirit of justice to teachers, can be
in no degree opposed such to pro
ceedure. Show a teacher wherein
she fails and in nearly every case,
she will improve. On the other
hand, keep the markings in the
dark until the time for the se
lection of teachers, firing all who
have unconsciously been blacklist
ed by a supervisor who knew his
duty to the teacher, or else didn't
know and cared less either being
easily possible and at whose sug
tion teachers are let out without a
word as to cause, etc., simply a
supervisor's markings and its all
to the bad with the teacher. Tea
chers should insist upon a squau
deal from superintendent to princi
pals and the latter should stand b
and work in perfect harmony With
Scientists are now claiming
that a man's thoughts are visible.
We'd hate for anvbodv to see our
thoughts when things go wrong
in the press room while the paper
is being printed. They wouldn't
fit in well with this christian ?
The editor has been asked how
to write a pretty poem on "June."
This is easy. Anybody can write
a poem about June. All you have
to do is to go through the dictio
nary and find words like coon, loon,
moon, noon, soon, spoon that'll
rhyme with June, then go right
ahead and write the poem.

Pay o f those mysteries
which always will be debated. In
the business woild, salaries are de
termined by the amount of busi
ness which the recipient makes for
his firm Because what he does
goes down in black and white, the
proper compensation for his ser
vices is comparatively easy to de
termine. When it conies to intel
lectual labor, there is no such sim
ple method of calculation. Tke
exact worth of any intellectual ef
fort is hard to determine. In some
cases the law of compensation is
the determining factor. Salaried
men and women of this class who
hope to better their own condition
keep an eye open for other places,
especially if they happen to know
that other employers e paying
more for the same kind of work
they are doing. The schoolteacher
is an intellectual worker, who lacks
in the freedom of movement which
redeems the lot of so many salaried
employes. Of course it is possible,
and teachers do, frequently move
from place to place, but it it is not
expedient. Most cities have par
ticular standards that takes years
to learn; most teachers have local
connections that they dislike to
sever. The teacher's work, like
that of most intellectual workers,
is one that is difficult to figure in
dollars and cents. Certainly it is
to he admitted that an incompe
tent teacher can do an untold lot of
harm, just how much harm, is a
conjecture. A thoroughly efficient
teacher, on the other hand, can
raise the irioral and mental stand
When one considers that under
the present condition it costs about
S4.000 to graduate a Kauai boy
from the Punahou college, it be
comes apparent that there's urgent
need for the establishment o f a
high school on Kauai wherein the
preparatory work might be accom
plished at much less expense than
present conditions will admit.
You can't sometimes always tell
In 1896 W. J. Bryan and R. L.
Metcalfe were editorial writers on
the Omaha World-Herald, and G.
Hitchcock was its owner. Today
Hitchcok is a senator from Nebras
ka, Bryan is secretary of state and
Metcalfe is governor of the Pana
ma Canal Zone. You just can't
keep us newspaper fellers down.
The case of Principal Morse of the
Hanapepe school, to which refer

Board our last issue, has
Re-enstates been looked into by
Morse Kauai's commissio
ner of education, re
sulting in the re-iustatement of the
deposed principal. According to a
statement by Mr. Brandt, he had
taken it up immediately upon
his return from Honolulu and that

of Mr. Morse.
Now comes a minister who pro
poses to furnish sandwiches and
coffee or tea, free, to his congrega-
ard of scores of pupils.
