E. B. Bridgewater Editor,
THE EDITORS' WORK.
What is doing more for tlie
rapid development of our Territory
than the local press thereof? Each
county has one or more news
papers, and what organ or insti
tution can do more toward bring
ing' out the good things we have
or portraying, so to speak, our
natural resources to men of capi
tal? Then, who is doing so much
to lift up our bailiwick socially,
educationally, religiously and phy
sically as the newspapers?
Who is doing as much to sup
press crime and the notoriety that
is being uselessly heaped upon our
heads as the newspapers? Who is
erecting any more school houses
than the editors?
Who is erecting any more
church houses than the editors?
Who is making any more good
roads than the editors? Who is do
ing any more to ameliorate disease
than the editors?
We of the' press toil laboriously
from early morn till midnight from
week's end to week's end lo do and
jo sav something that will result
in universal betterment. We drain
many a fountain of ink and wear
out untold numbers of quills each
year in return for the vulgar subs
cription price we get. It takes a
valiant and deep soul to stick to
what many scribes endure. Pray,
lead us to more philanthropic men
than the editors of the Star-Bulletin,
The Advertiser, The Freedom,
The Hilo Tribune, The Hilo He
rald, The Kohala Midget, The
Maui News, The Weekly Times.
The Paradise of the Pacific, The
Hawaii Shimpo, The NipVu Jiji,
The Hochi and the O'Luso.
Not a single one of this score or
more is making more than a decent
living, and, alas, some are not
hoarding u p such a fortune as
that. But they are all men, who
think more of mankind than of
man's kind. They arc florists in
this great garden of labor and ere
Ions their fruits will be known by
the flavor. It is sadly true that
some people are not considerate
and appreciative enough to give
us credit for what we do. Why
should such an apathy exist among
such an intelligent class of people.
It has been the opinion of manv
who understand the state of affairs,
f'atas soon as Ye Editor had hied
himself to other parts, the people
in Hanamaulu would get their
postoffice, police protection etc.,
but those who have the power to
furnish fliesc necessities allow time
to brand themj ust as big, unappre
ciative. ungenerous, tightwads as
they ever were. The common
people are alright to keep up our
dividends, but t o h-1 with the
rest of it. We have all we want
even to a private church, so we
It is interesting to know that
the Christmas turkey ought to be
cheaper, if it is not, for, accord
ing to an authority, the tariff is off
30 cents on a dead 10-pound tur
key. If the turkey is alive the re
duction would be 40 cents. This
being the case, the turkey should
not cost as much as it did last
year. As people buy more' turkeys
when they are cheaper, it would
seem to be a good thing to lower
the price, as long as the, reduced
tariff makes it possible.
Notice is hereby given that on
or about Thursday, the 25th. day
of December, it being Christinas
Day. according to the Almighty's
word and the edict of man's na
tural inclination, this shop will be
closed. And notice is hereby furth
er given that Ye Editor will accept
anv and all invitations to a ttrkey
dinner at any hour from 7 a. m. to
10 p. m. of that day, without de
falcation or discount.
