surely come out of it. i

manifest destiny. If Kauai does not
build the road, some fine dav out
siders, attracted by the prospects,
will do so and will reap the re
wards. Kight now is the time to
think- and think seriously - re
gat ding the matter.
We understand that a movement
(not clearly defined as yet, how
ever) has been started to have the
next Legislature so amend t h e
County Act as to provide for the
appointment (in place of election)
of the countv attorneys throughout
the group, and ilso the county
It is argued in support of the
proposition that the county sheriffs
an 1 .itt i ncvs, as well as the courts,
should be independent of politics.
As the matter now stands, it is
claimed, ountv attorneys a n d
sheriffs ar placed in the unenvia
ble pos,ti. i of trying to please the
voters, w carrying out laws
which not infrequently bring the
officials in direct conflict with the
opinions or interests of their consti
tuents. However honest and tamest

Kai ai"s Duty To Herself
In approaching large public or
busines i questions, may it not be
that the people of Kauai are more
or less lisposed to h.ang back and
"wait f ir someone else?" It is a
fact (rn unfortunate fact' that
very neirlv all of our really large
enterpr ses were promoted outside
of Kami, i. e.: Outsiders did the
ligurinj. and drew the prospec
tuses; issued and subscribed tor
the stock; put up the money and.
set things in motion While ad
this wa going on, a few of Kauai's
wealthit r men became interested,
and K; uai generally has coiv.i
trailing along behind.
The l oint we wish to make is
that Kn.iai has novel been the ex
ploiter of her own business op
portunities and has lost thereby.
Others ha v.- been the piomoters
and the g . .nd-floor investors,
and hav: reaped the benefits. That
is all right fur a new country, for
a country dependent upon the pro
gressive p.oneer foi its develop-
Latest Labor Agitation
Probably no more inopportune
time could have been chosen bv
Messrs. Sheba and Makiuo for
starting a labor agitation in the Is
lands tb the piescnt. The timid
of the . , le world is ju-t now on
an infiir'elv larger and more im
portant subject; and neither the
people o f the Islands, nor the
people of the mainland, nor the
people of Japan nor anyone else
will feel disposed to view with
friendliness a "tempest in a tea
pot"lhat might be aroused by agita
tors here just now.
Another reason why the agita
tion is woefully inopportune is the
uncertainty ot the sugar market.
Only a few months ago the out
look was gloomy in the extreme;
and the situation was tided over
temporarily only by the interven
tion of a great war. The dark
cloud of free sugar is still resting
upon our horion, and it is only a
question of a short time when the
plantations of the- Islands will be
called upon to weather that terri
Something tells us, however,
that the laborers of Kauai, and
probably of the oilier agricu'l ural
districts, will not listen lo the
agitators and will not sanction
this untimely movement. 1 lie
laborers in the country districts
r.alie more fully than the agitato-,
s of Honolulu's old Chinatown
what the plantations have been
"up against", and something of
the disaster with which thov are
still threatened. And unless we aw
badlv mistake:!, they will not lis
ten to agitators ami trouble makers,
at least until such time a.-: the in
dustry from which they must all
obtain a livelihood is safe from the
storm which now threatens it.
That M.ik:no should be concern-
etl in such a movement is not sur
j prising; but it is a severe disap
pointment to Mr. c-dicha's manv
friends on Kauai that he should,
I in a critical time like the piescnt,
; become involved in any such enter
Night Schools Needed
While thinking of war sufferers
and subjects of charity in various
I parts of the world, might it not be
wed for us to pause a moment and
consider the crxit'g need of a con
sumption hospital right here on
our Cardeu Island?
The whole world is rushing to
the relief of the suffciers in Bel
gintu sufferers w ho, in a wav ,were
the authors of their own undoing.
No outsiders come to the assis
tance of the suffering and tlving
of consumption in out midst They
ale left to their own resources, oi
the resources of their friends; and
the meager attention of an imper
fectly organized governmental sys
The public health report of last
month showed an alarming con
dition of affairs on this island.
And it was but a duplicate of the
showing of the other nine months
preceding it in this vear. Con
sumption claimed far too many
victims; and for lack of scientific
segregation, treatment and atten
tion, the number is constantly in
creasing and will increase sa long
as the disease i s permitted t o
spread almost freely as at present.
Honolulu has a hospital for in
curables. Maui has a bespit; i for
consumptives. Both are doing ex
cellent work. Thov were started
by citizens, and their importance
became evident so quickly that i
governmental aid was obtained. j
