Personally 1 should like to see a
Village Improvement Committee.
We have signal advantages of cli
mate and natural beauty, and we
ought to make more of them than
we do. There are a few individuals
who have done excellent work and
who deserve great credit; fore
most among them are Mr. Walter
McBivde and Mrs. Isenberg, and
they dtserve the more credit be
cause thev have fought against a
sort of back pressure of public in
dilfcrence; if we would strengthen
their hands they, and others like
them, would do much more.

some assurance that the pictures
are of a desiiable character. My
youngsters, are keen t o go and
once in a while my wife takes
them, and comes back far from
enthusiastic in regard to the quali
ty of the pictures.
We can keep our children away
from these places, but the general
run o f children go night after
night, and are being educated, per
haps, into criminals.
An influential committee of this
organization, that would commend
food pictures and condemn doubt
ful ones, could unquestionally do
much to improve the tone of these
moving picture shows.
In another direction also w e
could go forward, big, in the line
of popular education.
For some years now the federal
government, iu conjunction with
the Territory, lsr ieen conduct

Editor Garden island:
In your issue of today I notice
this statement in regard to the so
called "cattle nuisance": "We
should like to hear from the other
side on this matter, if there be any
other side." There is.
Have any of the gentlemen who
leave their gates open and stud
cattle to the pound ever inquired
into the source of the cattle? Have
they ever thought of following a
stray cow where it came from? I
don't know any statistics on the
subject, and I don't believe any
body on Kauai does, but I'll wager

percent of the members of the
Kauai Chamber of Commerce have
a direct or indirect interest in a
It is the people of small means -mostly
Portuguese, I believe, - who
own cows on Kauai. Thev have
not sufficient pasturage to support
them, and would have to get rid of
them if the cattle were not allowed
to graze on the road, where the
grass grows luxuriantly in most
It is these poor cattle owners
who supply the automobile owners
with milic. Where would the milk
supply for Kauai's babies come
from if the cows were butchered

ownership of cows be looked into

cattle is passed by the Board of

We have on the island several
physicians of exceptional intelli

the prevention of disease, or sani

The Mokihana Club are arrang

Mr. President, these are random

up with the times.
Some Sugar Yields
McBryde now promises 16.0C0

above the original estimate.

8000 tons of sugar, will exceed
