K. B. Bridgewater Editor,
Militant suffragettes have cost
Eiiglaudyheniatter of thirty milli
on dollars' in- daiffages. Probably
would have been cheaper to give
them the vote.
Pinkham according to his latest
correspondence is getting sick of
the dawdling over h i s appoint
ment. It reallv would be interest
ing to hear of his final confirmation,
quite a piece of news in fact.
Mrs. Pankhurst refused a propo
sal by Dr. Henry S. Tanner, of
Los Angeles, the champion faster
of the world. Too bad; they might
have established a record in "pen
sion" economy, would they but
decide to unite.
One of the Hilo Marriage Li
cense Commissioner's first official
acts was to issue a marriage li
cense to a white girl aged 15 an
ten months and her Japanese lover
Yanagihara Kinichi. In spite of
the girl's parent's objections the
couples were spliced in due form.
Conkling and the courts still have
to be heard from on the subject.
Uncle Sam is showing Mexico
the greatest patience eyer shown by
any great Republic to any smaller
one. At the time of writing Mexi
co still has a last chance to settle
her internal affairs. The southern
republic has become a chess-board
with the powers as spectators; look
ing on, watching every move, each
ready to protect her own people
and leaving the United States to
force a n y move whic' she may
deem to have become necessary,
Columbus, Ohio, now has an a
gency whickhas for its purpose the
tracking o fall night husbands"
and near-married men. Any wife
or sweetheart who suspects her hus
bands or fiancee's habits may ob
tain the services of a detective who
will track the suspect. Charges are
made very reasonable we under
stand buc if all the ladies should
develop a suspicious turn of mind,
its puzzling to figure where all the
detective are coining from.
Truly discourteous is the remark
made by the manager of the Ha
waiian Hotel when after telling
some lady tourists and their guests
that they must stop their music, it
being ten o'clock i m. and after
sumarily turning out the lights, in
fact totally at variance with all
courtiousness and civility was the
remark that "People should not
expect such service at the Hawaii
an hotel as at the Young or Moaua
because the rates are lower at the
first named than at the latter two.
This is the kind of treatment which
drives Tourists away.
The Maui Chamber ot Commerce
recently held a meeting at which
the 1914 civic convention was dis
cussed, the Vnllny Isle being the
next place of gathering. James
Dougherty Director of the Floral
Parade and lames L. McClean Vice
President of the Interis'.and Steam
ship Co., were also piesent urging
Maui to do her share as heretofore
by entering the Princess Parade
and sending' decorated autos and
floats to the coming Carnival.
A splendid idea should be if
each island were to include at least
one large float depicting on a mi
niature scale its characteristis fea
tures of scenery.
One continues to hear of delays
and irregularities in the mail ser
vice. Only the other day one of
our prominent citizens received
word from the coast stating that it
had taken eighteen days for his last
letter to reach San Francisco, read
trig the Knuai and the Bay Citv
date stamps. Apparenty too; at
the time there were ample oppor
tunities for immediate connection
If such is the case at ordinary
times what is liable to happen to
postal matter during the Christmas
rush, when congestion must neces
sarily hamper quick expedition.
Post early must indeed be the mo
tto for the coming holiday season.
IN view of the increased activi
ty being put forth and the wider
scope of interests which are being
brought to bare in the coming Car
nival, it behoves each of the islands
to also take added interest in the
The Hawaiian Princess Parade
is of course a standing and very
beautiful feature of the celebration,
exhibiting an extensely Aesthetic
phase of Hawaiian iife. which al
ways meets with great appreciation
from both Malihini and Kamaaina
There are additional ways how
ever, whereby the islands might
add to the artistic value and in
crease the pretentious qualities of
A well planned float representing
each island, and possibly a few de
corated autos would greatly add to
tne interest and beauty of the fe!c.
This might be a possible subject
for discussion at the next meeting
of the "Chamber."

Women's Non Partism Poli
tical League of Spokane, is pro
pounding a list of sixteen questions
for male candidates for office to
answer. The questions relate to
matters of immediate and vital in
terest to the women themselves,
their homes, husbanda and child
ren, and some of these matters are
of a nature ruling masculinity did
not think they knew about o r
dared to speak out loud about.
Abolition of the third degree, res
triction of the social evil, saloon
closing and regulation, enforce
ment of the laws against gambling,
compulsory water meters, reduc
tion in cost of gas and electricity,
a universal transfer system o n
street railways, street improve
ments, disposal of household gar
bage without cost, inauguration of
a system of weights and measures,
nomination of women to member
ship in Park, Health and Street
Cleaning departments and also es
tablishment of a Free Employment
Bureau for Women, interest the
new feminine electorate. The wo
men intimate that .-in affirmative
answer to their wishes will be as
good as a nomination, if not an
election. They even want appoint
ments of women as police officers,
matrons for the city jail, and a
municipal home for men and wo
men! This is progression with a
vengeance not that is too radical,
but because the likelihood of get
ting those desirable improvements
is now greater than ever before.
What the women want, they are
almost certain to get.
