motion of Mr. Broadbent, which

Mr. Broadbent thereupon intro

"Whereas, The mcst urgent
public improvement at present re
quired by this county, that will
be of the greatest benefit to the
greatest number of citizens, is the
completion of the macadam road
from Kekaha to Hanalei; and
"Whereas, Considerable funds

spent to macadamize a road that
when completed will serve com

"Whereas, It is estimated that

New Store Building
The Mill Branch of McBryde

tablished in a commodious, new
building near the office of the Mc
Bryde Sugar Company at Wahia

on the structure for sometime and

being put on it.
Mr. Wishard amended to the
effect that the committee be ap
pointed to co-operate with the
Territory, the Legislature or both,
in the entertainment of the Con
gressional party while on Kauai,
and the President of the Chamber
to be chairman of that committee.
The chair stated that anticipa
ting the wishes of the Chamber,
he had already selected a commit
tee of fifteen members, composed
almost entirely of plantation men
(as the Congressional party was
coming to investigate sugar con
ditions), and had asked Mr. Hans
Isenberg, President of the Lihue
Plantation Company, to accept the
chairmanship of the committee.

Another large addition is to be
made to the hotel at Waimea, it to

cottage will be two stories and
will contain fifteen rooms. Work

The following bill relating to
county attorneys has been intro
duced in the Legislature:
"Section 1583. Advises super
visors, etc. The County Attorney
is the legal adviser of the Board of
Supervisors. He shall attend their
meetings when required, and at
tend and oppose all claims and
accounts against the Countv when
he deems them unjust and illegal.
He shall not appear or act as
counsel for any party in any civil
case in any court except to appear
for the county of which he is the
County Attorney in all cases in
which such County is a party,
Every County Attorney who shall
appear or act as counsel for any
party in any civil case in any
court except as aforesaid, shall be
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor
and shall, on conviction, be fined
not less than One Hundred Dol
lars ($100 J nor more than Five
Hundred Dollars ($500.)."
Letting The Best In Us Unfold Now
Some of us have come to see what we call develop
ment is simply unfoldment and that instead of striving
and straining to perfect ourself by building on some
thing from the outside, all we need to do is to let the
good already within, unfold. In other words, we need
to remove rather than add, and then the flower of life
will blossom forth perfectly because the perfection is
already in it.
Browning tells us something of this in one of his
poems when he says all that a man is, already is
his within. What he needs to do is to clear away the debris that is
This thought is growing rapidly in popular belief today and the
miserable sinner and worm-of-the dust idea is losing ground. But
even among those who believe that all that a man is, he already pos
sesses, are many who still cling to the theory that the best of those
faculties are to be unfolded hereafter. They think they must step
over some intangible barrier into enternity before certain qualities iii
them can blossom forth at their best. They seem to think that con
ditions in the Hereafter will be more favorable to perfect unfoldment
than they are here, They look forward to the Heareafier as a place
where temper will be unknown, where selfishness will disappear,
where envv will no longer exist, in a word as a place where in the old
parlance, "their wings will have fully sprouted." They can be angels
there, but they can't be angels here,
But why this sharp division between Here and Hereafter. Are
we not in reality just as much in eternity now as we ever will be?
Are not all these divisions man-made, and does not the fact re-
effort and money were expended! main that we are now in this great illimitable thing, eternity, thatsur-
on side roads and by-way proposi
tions of secondary importance.
Mr. Wishard remarked casually
that it was sometimes desirable
and fair to numbers of tax-payers
to pay attention to side roads.
No road statistics showing how
and where money for roads had
been extended in the past nine
and a half years.
Judge Hofgaard agreed in the
main with the
thought it should provide for ma
cadamizing the road between Ke
kaha and the Barking Sands.
Mr. Crawford objected to that

So why not let these faculties unfold fully in us now instead of
waiting for the Hereafter to see them at their best? Why not let
kindliness rise to high tide without ever the mark or scar ot on un
generous thought to mar it. Why not lei honesty come to perfect
fruition here, so that one stands to every one who knows him as a
synonym for fair play? Why not quell that temper now and let the
sweetness and gentleness which every one reallv possesses blossom
out? Why not let the love that seems only a spark, spread its wings,
and that in all you know in a great overwhelming desire to do good to
