Tim untimely passing
away of Ralph Wilcox, re
moves from our midst one of
the most valuable men of the
c o in m unit y, unassuming
eetitle, and generous to the
utmost, commanding the ad
miration of all with whom he
came in contact. In business
circles, his opinion was al
ways considered most valu
able, he being recognized as
the best posted business man
in the coinniunitv.
The same gentle disposi
tion which his business asso-
H ciates so greatly admired in
mm also s n e tt us miiu
ence among his home com
panions, among whom he
was a favorite. The lo-s of
such a valuable citizen is a
serious blow to Kauai in
general and Lihue in parti
cular since it can justly be
said ta.tl the Lord has taken

country is not prepar
ed, but we can hardly agree with
the statement made by some that
America cannot fight and that in a
war with Japan we would be de
feated for two years and our cities
burned and destroyed. It may be
true that our standing army is in
sufficient for warfare, but Ameri
can spirit is always sufficient and
every American is a soldier when
he needs to be, and we could turn
loose 10,000.000 soldiers in ten
days if it came to that. Our navy
may not be sufficient either, but it
is efficient. We might be avoiding
warfare by preparing for it, but
there is little danger of war with

would be acceptable to Ihe direc
tors. The present policy of the
paper has been in existence for a
little more than two and a half
years, during which time it has
been the prime and chief agent in
(1) Organized the Kauai Athle
(2) Originated the first track
and field meet ever held on Kauai.
(3) Agitated some means of
changing t h e flow of stagnant
water through Nawiliwili resulting
in a "ten thousand dollar tunnel.
(4) Had railroad crossings re
paired and caused Lihue Planta
tion to ptit up railroad signs.
(5) Advocated High School for

schedule, resulting in new sche
dule for principals.
(7) Was instrumental in bring
ing about an investigation of the
department of education.
(8) Raised several hundred
dollars for the Ohio flood victims.
(9) Brought influence to bear
upon the land department to the
extent of getting eighty-acre home
steads in Kapaa.
C10) Advocated Janitors for pub
(11) Caused sanitary measures
to be taken in the Lihue butcher-:
(12) Advocated a postoflicc and
police protection for Hanamauhi.
(13) And last but by no means
least, the policy of the paper has
never been to deal in personalities
unless the inteiests of the commu
nity have been the motives, and
then the matter has been handled
without fear or favor. The motto
of this paper is "hew to the line
let the chips fall where they may,"
and if any one basket has received
more than itssharc of chips, it isan
assured fact that the basket has
but itself to blame. We have spok
en right out in meeting, and have
not the least regret for so doing.
Further indication that the poli
cy lias given satisfaction, is that
the subscription list at present is
four times what it was at the be
ginning or our lease, and the ad
vertising has increased 1,000 per
cent. Furthermore, only three sub
scribers h a v e discontinued the
paper, all cases being where sub
scribers left the Islands. With this
excellent showing under the pre
sent policy which has existed for
nearly three years, it is difficult to
know just what kind of a policy
would suit the directors. Perhaps
they would prefer the former poli

evidence to give rise to the belie

in favor of the present policy of
