The Fourth Of July
Was there not really just a little spirit of thanksgiving in yester
day's observance of tin: Fourth ot luly? Many of us took in baseball
and other sports, some went picuicini; and some wcie oil on junkets,
But if we had never before thought of the blessings ot out government
and its policy of peace nnd good-will, it is quite likely that some such
suggestion come to us yesterday; and we were thankful that the Stars
and Stripes float. over us. For. looking across to the other side of the
world to what is taking place, there war. brought home very forcibly,
even to the most unthinking, the blessings of our form of government.
It may not be all it might. There may be corruption and turmoil be
times, but even these things are belter than the wai -ridden condition
of the countries across the seas.
Expansion, the ambition to have the greatest kingdom or empire
on earth, the maintaining of the prestige and granduer of royalty no
better than other folk all makw for that disposition to seize, to grasp,
to conquer, by force of arms, -if no other way opens, which Ins now
plunged the other nations into war as it has done manv times before
We in America haven't that hunger. We don't want Mexico nor
South America noi any other territory, and the spirit toward the other
countries is not one of grabbing but ot a sincere desire to lend a help
ing hand. The American people are perfectly honest in 'his attitude.
There is no hypocrisy about it. There is nothing hidden; there is no
cloak with which to hide anything. It is all square, open and above
board before the world.
If in our Fourth of July celebration yesterday we did not think ol
these things, we should have done so. W'c can no longer take the
blessings we enjoy quite so much-as a mere matter of course and
ours merely by being born to them; but we now see more clearly, per
haps, how they came, what they stand for in life and the need for
them to be preserved.
Seeing as we now do every day the distress which the self-seeking
governments bring to those under their sway , we should pledge
ourselves anew to keep aloft those ideals which our forefathers entered
the wilderness to establish and fought to preserve, to 1 lie end that the
next and future anniversaries of the Fourth of July may find us en
joying that same sweet peace which marks our nation as the most con
spicuous example in the world today.
The Workmen's Compensation Law
The new workmen's compensation law promises to be a good thing
for Hawaii for the principal reason that it will systematize what has
hitherto been carried on in a more or less haphazard and unsatisfac
tory way. Under our laws employers have always been liable to the
expense and penalties of suits arising as a result of accidents; animosi
ties have been aroused between employer and employee, and the law
jers have shared most largely in the net results of the proceedings.
There is probably not a large business enlerpiise in this Tcrti
tory but is carrying on its pay-roll the names of persons drawing pen
sions for one cause or another. The sugar plantations have manv of
them. They arc persons disabled or injured in the perfoi innnce of
duty, or have grown old and unfit after years of service. But there
has been no system to the practice, with the result that it, as a whole,
has not worked out in a satisfactory manner to either employer or em
ployee. The new law clearly defines the responsibility of employer to the
employed, and vice versa; and sets out in minute detail what may
or shall be done in every eventuality. It systematizes the thing and
that is just what has been needed for a long time.
When the law is thoroughly understood and is in complete work
ing order we are inclined to believe that the public will be much pleas
ed with it. About half of the States of the American union have law;;
almost identical with the one which has just gone into effect here, a;d
the results are proving satisfactory. We are hopeful that the system
may work even better in this Teiritory.

The new regulation of the Kauai License Commissioners which
does away with the practice of soliciting orders lor liquor is the cul
mination ot several years ot agitation. Hie principal complainants
nave oeen ttie plantations, and the objection came from the practice of
liquor dealers soliciting orders and delivering their goods in the planta
tion camps. However, the regulation is a distinct restriction upon one
feature of the liquor business, and it must be admitted that it is a step
in tne direction ot piolulntiou.
Kauai nas tor years Had the most satisfactory liquor regulations
in the Territory. There are no retail saloons on the island, so th.-,r
bar-room drinking and "treating" are minimized. Liquors are sold ; loSaa, and loSh, upon the recom
