It s ene't-l:y admitted that the representative of Kauai in the
K :: 1 rvn.,.i'.wi: Committee should lie s man thoroughly acquainted
with the is'.tnc and i'.s attractions, should be personally interested in
the velfr.rt of Kauai and should be what is popularly termed a "fight
er.'' Moreover, he must lie so situated that h can attend all meet
ings of the Comur.ttee at Honolulu. We remarked last week that it
would be d fhcult u- tmd a mat: fitted :n all these respects, but v.e be
lieved that he could be found with reasonable efiort.

Stock Markets of Europe
The current and future of stocks in Kurojie has for a long time
entrusted the attention of world financiers, and a puzzling feature to
many is how the various countries at war have managed to weather
tiie situation so well. The Christian Science Monitor makes the fol
lowing oiiservolions on the subject :
Though tiie future of the stock markets is admittedly dim ;nd in
distinct, and the best opinion looks for lower prices both before and
after tiie war is over, yet the European stock ejichawges show at pres
ent a wonderful elasticity and buoyancy, Business is nearly univer
sally done for cash, and so there are few or no "bull and bear" ac-j
c-ouuts. but the complementary processes of liquidation and invest
ment are considering all the circumstances, in fair equipose. This1
s.'u'.'ws, of course, that though there a.re a great many former spec u la -Vrs
