The news of Pinkhani's selec
tion as our next governor, came as
a thunder-bolt from a clear sky.
W,h e n we had
sufficiently r e -covered
equilibrium t o
speak, we tumid
ourselves saying, "well, and why
not?" Of course the Advertiser
had been firing hot-shots into him
for the last few days, but its at
titude towards Mr. Pinkham is so
well known that anything it might
have said concerning him, would
ordinarily be given little credence.
But now he is in, and in reviewing
his work during the term of his in
cumbency in office as president of
the board of health, we find many
improvements w h i c h commend
h i in to the element of earnest
thinking people of the Territory.
It will lie admitted that the new
governor, like all of u, is not per
fect, but the good h e has ac
complished for the best interests
of the Territory is certainly de
serving of highest praise and every
knock from a two-by-twice news
paper man like Thurston, will be
taken by any sensible person as a
"boost." In selecting Mr. Pink
ham, the president has evident! v
endeavored t. name a man who
could command the support of the
democratic element a s a whole.
Had he selected any one of the
other numerous candidates,
(though each and evervone of them
is perfectly capable) a factional
fight would more than likely have
ensued, resulting in a complete
split in the democratic party as a
local body. Let us all get right
in, (even the Advertiser,) and for
get all personalities and work in
dividually and collectively for the
best interests of the Territory and
thus materially aid the new gover
nor in his task o f putting our
Territorial house in order.
H11.0 is conducting a big ad
vertising campaign with a view to
exploiting what the island of Ha
waii has to offer the tourist and
prospective homebuilder. If the
leadiug business men o f Kauai
would only get together a n d
organize a commercial body, there
is no doubt but that the Garden Is
land could be made to yield as
much attraction to both the above
classes as the Hilo people have
succeeded in sectoring for the big
island. It only requires a little
"get-together" attitude upon the
part of our public spirited men
of whom we have many and pies-to-change,
the organization is com
plete. With our hotel accomoda
tions both at Lihue and Waimea,
there could be no question as to
sufficient hotel room for tourist
travel. Then, loo, there is the
gorgeous scenery. - valleys, moun
tains, canyons, miles of bouleVard
and other fascinating attractions
too numerous to mention, which,
with the proper public spiiit be
hind a well planned campaign of
advertising, would easily make the
Garden Island the most sought-for
spot in the Pacific.
A suggestion has reached this
office, purporting to be from a
prominent Lihue man, to the effect
that the proposed floral parade for
Kauai be so arranged that it take
place in Lihue, the line of parade
to include a trip around the block
and through the Lihue park where
a judges' stand could be erected
which the line of parade could
pass in review. It is contended that
the roads at best are always more
or less dusty and that a long line
of automobiles would create a fog
of dust which would make it mighty
unpleasant for everyone but those
occupying the tiont car. By con
fining the parade to the Lihue
block, the county sprinkler could
be put m commission if necessarv,
and the road placed in first-class
shape. Any one or more who may
have a desire to express themselves
on the subject will be given the
necessary space in the columns of
this paper, at their convenience.
The Honolulu Morning Adver
tiser, in taking the stand in favor
of "qualification" ranking first
in the consideration of the Terri-
tonal teaching staff, expresses the
views of about every man who has
the best interests of .the public
schools at heart. A gootl teacher is
,ti good teacher, niarriod qr single,
! and to dispense with the, services
I of a competent teacher for any
j .cause; serves to cripple -the effici
ency ot '.ne education!) system
just so much. If those at the-head
of- the department oj : edudation
would confine themselves more to
the real good they might accom
plish h-v improving other lines
rather than indulging in fanciful
dreams, better results would acme.
The act of trampling the ;'Stars
and' Stripes under foot, by the
Mexicans, is one which should not
b e allowed t o g o unpunished.
What greater insult is necessary to
bring the American people to their
sense of duty to their country.
Since the British flag was also
trampled and torn to shreds, per
haps the two offended nations, in a
combination of efforts, c 1111 1 d
possibly inject a little common
sense into the hot-headed fanatics.
Marching and cheering under the
Japanese flag has no further
significance than that tiic crazv
mob simplv, (if possible,) made
further asses o f themselves and
their country. .
. .. .1 .
Evidently realizing the utter
impossibility of carrying on a suc
cessful war with the United States
on her own hook. Mexico has
m.ide ocrtures officially to the
Japanese government with a view
to bringing t li e latter into the
turmoil Japan h.is wisely awl
most dtci-ively declined the over
tures, with theresult that the Mexi
can government i'.l find it neces
sarv to do some diplomatic manip
ulations of a rather high character
to avofd serious complications with
her northern neighbor who has
patiently stood by while its sub
jects have been butchered and
driven from their homes'.
It is reported that one of the
tastideous married ladies of this
district, kneads her bread with her
gloves on. This incident may, seem
peculiar but there are others. The
editor of this paper, for instance,
needs bread with his pants on, and
unless some of our delinquent sub
bribers pony up before long he will
need bread without a darn thing
on, and the Garden Island is
no Garden o f Eden when cold
weather sets in.
In a recent speech before a large
religious gathering 111 a New Jer
sey town, Vice-president Tom
Marshall made the following timely
remarks concerning our laws and
the observance of them:
"There are three types of law-abiding
citizens, those who obey the law bu
caw they are afraid of the sheriff, those
who obey it because it is the law, and
those, far too few, whom' I like to call
'automatic citizens,' who never think
what is the law, but pimply do right."
.One of our leading citizens got
"stung" the othen day through an
swering an advertisement appear
tug in a magazine. Aiorni: uo ousi
ness only with those who patronize
your home paper and satisfaction
is guaranteed. Try it. and you'll
see we're right.
The case of the purloining of
a wheel at Hanamaulu is further
evidence of the justice of the re
quest for a policeman in that dis
trict. Are the members of the board
of supervisors to go on record as
subject to the dictation of a "one-
