It has come at last. Prominent
citizens, some nineteen in number.
have filed a petition
THE with Sheriff Rice, ask
STOCK ing that some definite
LAW step be taken in regard
' to our stock law. As
suggested in this paper in our last
issue, this seems the proper
course to pursue, and one which
will most likely be productive o f
results. There are many who dis
refiard the present antequated
stock law which provides that all
fences shall be a certain height be
fore loose stock can be impounded.
There is a new law, however, the
effects of which will probably be
felt by these violaters before they
can ba convinced that the public
road is not a general pasture Re
ports of damaged cars from having
come into contact with stock on
the public highways, are almost of
daily occurrence, and if the present
law is inadequate i n stopping
these conditions, the board o f
supervisors might try their hand at
an ordinace that would prove

PIGGIES would do well to turn
? i its attention to the
Lihue coffee shop, the
immediate vicinity from which
emerged a beaiuiful speciman o f
insobriety the other Sunday, who,
only by the aid of an assistant on
either side, was able to navigate
up and down the street, a walking
advertisement not only for t h e
notorious joint, but to the com
munity as well. About the same
conditions are said to prevail in a
certain coffee shop in the i m -mediate
vicinity of the Hanamaulu
Store, the same being also1 under
the supervision of the Lihue Plan
tation, in so much as the property
belongs to the company.
It is a clear case that a demo
cratic delegate is not wanted as a
Hawaiian representative in Wash
ington. And why? Well, we are
told that if such is the case, that
it will stamp Hawaii's approval on
the tariff bill. For the love of Mike!
Would it not be advisable to hold
our horses awhile? At least until
we have positive proof of t h e
ruinous schedule? It is a bad policy
to cross a bridge before we come to
it. We republicans have no corner
on grey matter, and it strikes us
that all this talk is rather prema
ture. That the republican party is
sorelv in need o: reorganization,
we must admit, but to let out
a howl such as some of Honolulu's
disgruntled are doing at present,
is showing both weakness and fear,
neither of which there is any reason
to believe really exists.
"No stairips will be allowed the
teachers from now on," says a let
ter from superintendent of schools
to principals. Gibson is certainly
looking out for the financial cud
of his department, since the fur
nishing the teachers with stamps
must amount to at least a con
siderable s u m each year. This
means that each principal must
furnish the stamps for her month
ly report to the department, who
hires her, another one in her re
port to the board of health, and
still another to the board of super
visors. That the department is too
poor to allow the teacher her due,
is regretable, but o n the other
hand, it is well that the teachers
are all wealthy as the result of
such princely (?) salaries.

When the Hanamaulu people
are compelled to sit in a corral
formed by a wall tent, and along
side of an offensive stable, in order
to attend a moving picture show, it
is high ime that they were entitled
to some sort of a show hall as well
as a policeman and postoffice.
There is but one reason why such
is not provided.
We have been told that if we
had common sense, even, we would
not criticise such a beautiful piece
of art as that represented in tin '
"obstruction" at the corner of tiu
street in front of the Lihue Store ,
We would remind our critic, that
we are possessed with "uncom
mon" sense, hence the henccs.
