that of some business men on Kauai.
TitK fact that any wrong per
petrated by a person of wealth
should b e considered excusable
due to such wealth is no longer
tolerated by the people of our en

And yet we hear ot the superiority
of man in all tilings political.
A ganCi of murderously drunken
joy-riders dashing down Queen
Street at 2 a. m. last Sunday morn
ing greeted the multitude of pas
sengers disembarking from the S. S.
Kinau arriving from Kauai. Madly
they dashed in and out among
other cars and vehicles which filled
the street, missing several by a
hair, the maudlin fiends, with
derisive drunken shouts of vulga
rity passing on in the direction of
the citv jail where it is hoped thev
landed. Kvidentlv the police force
had retired for the night as there
were none in sight. Honolulu may
have good laws relative to regulat
ing the speed limit, but without
officials with sufficient nerve to en
force such, these laws don't amount
to a duru.
The bull which the various re
publican candidates passed out to
Kauai's voters during the last
campaign will not go far in the
next campaign once the fact be
comes known that the Ilanamaulu
voters are denied the simple re-qtu-st
of police protection. It
might be well to insert in their
platform, that "we will pledge our
selves so and so, providing, how
ever, such actions meet with the
approval of the Lihue Plantation
management. ' '
During last election coinpaign
one could hear Irom everv source,
(and with absolute truthfulness)
that there was not a reliable demo
crat to be found on the islamr, who
would run for office. The question
now is, are the men whom we elect
ed on the republican ticket any
better than the democratic materia1.?
Is it a wise policy to further stand
by a bunch of politicians who ap
parently accept a dictatorial policy,
rather than fulfill their promises
to the voters who elected them?
Most emphatically no. It has been
said that "I don't want a police
man in Ilanamaulu," and the
dead .silence among the officials
whose business it is to move in the
matter, c a n indicate but o n c
thing "we are at your service."
Ilanamaulu has asked nothing
unreasonable. Xo a t e in p i at
burdening the county with extra
expense has been intended. The
people simply ask for police pro
tection for their homes and have
suggested a transfer of one of the
present policemen from Nawiliwili
