any other way." The same author,
in telling of his grea- fight for
civic rights in New York City,
says that often, when he felt sad
and discouraged, he would go and
look at a stonecutter hammering
awny at his rock perhaps a hun
dred times without as much as n
crack showing in it. Yet at the
hundred and first blow it would
split in two. "And" he add4. "I
knew it was not that blow that did
it, but all that had gone before to
We, the people of Hawaii, want
the very best in government, in
moral standards, and in social pro
gress, Our presence here shows
we are in earnest, and some day
we shall see a very definite result.
The people oi. Kauai have al
ways been ready to take the initia
tive in matters of community in
terest and can show results that
are tangible and real. In plans
for wider improvement we want to
do our part.
In closing, I wish again to as
sure you that Kauai is very, very
glad to have you here.
We have been attending this
morning a sort of social clinic at
the bed-side of the body politic.
We have made a careful diagnosis,
we have investigated some of the
complications, we have suggested
remedies, now before we close this
discussion the practical question
rises what are we going to do about
it? . ,
I take it we are not here to do
civic slumming as a pastime. The
serious discussion of so virtual a
theme by so, many intelligent and
earnest men implies some action-
Now, we will be met at the out
set by objections. The man of peace
will say, "don't stir up a hornet's
nest! Let sleeping dogs lie! Don't
engender bad feeling and strife
that will set the community by the
ears and leave an aftermath of bit
terness that years will not heal,"
If peace is the one thing to be
desired in this world at any price,
then that may be a valid objec
tion, but we should realize just
what it means. Just as soon as it
becomes evident that peace is in
dispensable, and that you will pay
zay price for, it, then peace be
comes the club with which you are
beaten into line with ever increas
ing insolence, and ever increasing
encroachment until you are left
naked, destitute and shivering in
Translate these conditions into
the practical affairs of personal in
terest and the sophistries of objec
tion fade away like smoke. . Let
any man or body of men, what
ever uniform thev wear or commis
sion they hold, lay violent hands
on your personal possessions, your
stocks or bonds in the bank, your
crops in the field, your goods in
the store, even your chickens in
your backyard, and all this talk of
non-resistance, of the futility of
stirring up strife, of the aftermath
of bad feeling would vanish to the
four winds, and every man of you
would grit his teeth and stand to
Now, I realize that sometimes
resistance is futile, that sometimes
the only thing we can do is to
throw up our hands and "deliver
the goods," and the less fuss we
make about it the better. And of
course it that's the condition we
have come to in civic affairs, that
looters and procurers have "got
the drop on us" then there is
nothing for us to do but to ac
quiesce, with as good grace as pos
sible. But surely wt haven't come
to that pass as yet, though we may
be drifting thither.
However, we are dealing, not
with theories, but conditions, so
that the practical question is al
ways this; "Can we accomplish
anything, or will aggressive action
make matters worse ? The boy
who tackles the hornet's nest is!
st:rring up a lively time for him- J

haps he had bettei let it alone. If
the men whom we have put into J
sworn to administer these trusts
faithfnllv, and who hold these
places by our concurrence, it these
men have so hypnotized us that
we can't do mvthin2, then I sup
pose we had better keep still and
take whatever they give us.
Yet. ever so, no victory was
even won without the risks of
feat. The boy who never dares to
tackle the hornet's nest will surely
never deniolisli it. The only way
ever to do anything is to try.
Shall we try ? It la a commend
able thiiu to conduct this discus
sion, to applaud these sentiments,
tosav, "Bv George that's right!"
but that doesn't get anywhere! I
can easily believe that the devil of
unrighteousness, civic or other
wise, rejoices in just such enthu
siasm as has been shown here this
morning because he says, "that's
a mighty good wav to blow off
sttain! They'll think they are
doing something and they'll go
home satisfied!" I hope you will
We are members one of another.
We cant't stand off and go our
own independent ways; our inter
ests and our responsibilities are
bound up together. By electing
the various officers of government
to their various duties we haven't
escaped responsibility entirely, we
must co-operate with him, we must
hold them to time. Not generally,
I believe, in anv critical or censori
ous way, but in the spirit of help
ful interest and sympathy.
Except in the most flagrant
cases the lapses from the path of
honesty have been the result, I be
lieve, very largely of public indif
fence. Nobody knew what was
being done. Nobodv cared. The
incentives to efficiency and honesty
were relaxed, the opportunities for
graft were increased, the natural
The way to secure honest and
efficient service anvwhere is to take
an interest in it. Our mistake, as
a people, is to allow our public
Servants a long tether of negligent
indifference and then bring them
up suddenly with a round turn.
The resuls is disastrous. And while
the fault is largely theirs, it is abo
The best watchman is a bright
light. The best safeguard against
corruption and graft is the spot
light of interest and intelligence,
kept right on public affairs all the
time. We are fortunate in the en
dowment of a fearless and disin
terested press, which goes far to
protect us from the evils of corrup
tion but here again we are apt to
transfer our responsibility, and
weaken our power. We must co
operate with the press and stand
behind it for the highest standards
of honesty and efficiency.
Now this Is an eld story, worn
thread-bare in the telling. Then,
why don't we do these things? Be
cause it costs too much in time or
attention or energy, We are too
busy with our own affairs. We
would sooner put up with a reason
able amount o f corruption than
devote the time and interest to it
that might be needed to correct it
and so we let it run on. Not until
we are ready to devote personal
attention, and time and energy to
public affairs at a sacrifice if need
be can we expect a better condi
tion of things. Not until we are
ready to stay with it as we stay
with our own personal affairs from
month to mouth and year to vear
can we expect any very great im
provement. THIS RESPONSE.
