McCandless. 175: George R. Car
ter, 60; Palmer Woods., 60: Xotley,

that 1150 votes will be polled. If
more votss are cast, Rice's figures
will probably be enlarged.
Sometime ago the Maui Cham
ber of Commerce decided to with
draw its financial support from the
Hawaii Promotion Committer, and
now we hear that the Valley Is
lanc'ers will cjrr on a tourist pro
motion scheme of their own. by
Keeping a man in Honolulu for
the purpose of steering tourists
definitely to the island of Maui.
It has been observable for a long
time that the results of the work
of the Hawaii Promotion Commit
tee have been of pecuniary in
terest ou!v to the hotels, curio
dealers and chnffciirs of Honolulu;
the Hawaii branch of the local
steamship company; and the Hilo
Railway, Volcano Stables Com
pany and a couple of Greek eating
nouses on uawan. me ueneiits
received by West Hawaii, Maui
and Kauai from the tourist busi
ness lias been, ami is, more ot a
joke than a business reality.
Asked if we are in favor of the
Hawaii Promotion Committee as an
institution, we reply, unhtsitati.ig
1 yes. Are we in favor of pro
moting tourist travel? Yes, again;
But the point is that the
Hawaii Promotion Committee does
not meet the rcijuiremimts of the
Islands outside of Honolulu and
For the pur
poses of Honolulu, Hilo and the
Yulcano Hons--, it is a good thing;
and the out-in-the-coid districts are
glad of it.
We do not charge any luxi;ess or

Hawaii Promotion Committee is

It has, therefore, come to a Pa-si

seems to lie arrcgant condescension
seems to a!!;i t --oaie d' our Hono-
lulu friends nowadays when it
i comes to dealing with communities
i of the outside islands. A streak
I of it runs through the Hawaii Pro
I motion Committee, and there is a
still larger streak in the Territorial
'government. Wc are inclined to
the opinion that it is not apprec at-
edon Hawaii and Maui, nnd are jol
ly well satisfied that it is resented on
Kauai. An instance of this came
up last week, when the new super
intendent of public works made a
grand-stand play before the Harbor
Commissioners and in the Honolu
lu newspapers, the intent being to
create the impression that he w is
seeking to grant some great favor to
the island of Kauai, but could not
do so on account of the failure of
the Kauai Chamber of Commerce
to answer promptly his letters for
The great favor - the important
concession - of this wonderful man
in this wonderful department, was
a proposal to appoint two wharf
ingers on Kauai at the grand sala
ry of 55 per. month each!
This is merely a small case in
point. Put it illustrates the spirit.
Let Honolulu get out of its patro
nizing mood, and come right down
to business with the outside islands,
on the tourist and other proposi
tions; and better results will surely
Returning directly to the subject
of tourist promotion, we are un
able to see why Kauai and Maui
should contribute to the expense
of inducing travel on the Honolu
lu - Hilo route unless there should
be hope of more tourists ' 'seeping'
through into these localities than
have been in evidence in the past.
It would be just as reasonable for
the Hawaii Promotion Committee
to contribute to the support of the
tourist committees of San Francis
co and Los Angeles, on the ground
of the travel that might "seep"
through over there into Honolulu.
Suggest the latter proposition to
Honolulu, and Honolulu would go
"up in the air". And at the same
time Honolulu expects Maui and
K;Hiai to do that very thing.
The venture of the Kauai Cham
ber of Commerce into the field of
theatrical amusements has thus far
proved successful and s rtisfactory ,
and it is to be hoped that fur
ther efforts along the same line will
be put forward later on. Undoubt
edly the entertainments of the Ju
venile Bostonians have been much
enjoyed, and, coming at this time,
have given our people something
more pleasant to think and talk
about than the war and troubles of

Thr Harden Island wishes to
make one more appeal to the voters
of Kauai in the interest of the can
didacy of Hon. Charles A. Rice at
the polls next Saturday.
The voters of Kauai have sup
ported Mr. Rice in the past. It is
of more vital importance that they
support him now.
The Territory today needs more
than anything else an active man
in Washington. Kauai .needs an
active man there. A son of Kauai,
whose capabilities, energy and
honesty are recognized the Islands
over, has volunteered to assume
this great responsibility.
Kauai should take the lead in
his support, and should endeavor
to give him as near a unanimous
vote as possible in the primary.
Republicans of everv nationality
should vote for Mr. Rice; those of
independent affiliations should also
do so to a man.
The situation has been pretty
well gone over, and every voter
knows what it is.
The question is with vou: Will
you vote for Rice and competency
and activity, or will you vote for
Kuhio and two more rears of
failure and disappointment?
Hawaii And Sugar
Now that the war has brought
clearly to the attention of the Am
erican people the fact that they are
at the mercy of Kurope when it
conies to the important matter of
sugar, will not something be done
to place the United States in a
more independent position?
1 lie L nited states today pro
ducts only 800,000 tons of sugar
per annum, and consumes 3,300,
0C tons. It is easily to be seen
that 2.500,000of the sugar consum
ed on the mainland is imported.
Why i s that enormous amount
of sugar imported into a country
which in itself contains ideal sugar

which American sugar is forced to
carry, causing would-be growers
of beets and cane to give the in
du;try a wide berth. What, how
ever, is proposal under trie new

strangle the already far inadequate
American sugar industry, increase
the amount of sugar importations
and keep up the price to the Amer
