Delegate Kalanianaole today in

vides that when any federal judge
has held his commission for ten
years and has attained the age of
seve lty years while holding such
commission shall receive the full
salary of such a judge for the res
idue o f his natural life. This
bill was considered by a sub-committee
of the House Judiciary
Committee today when arguments
in its support were made by the
Delegate, Territorial Senator Coke
and Judge Ballon. It is believed
the bill will pas9 the House in the
form introduced today.
Congressman William Kettner,
of California, who was here with
the Congressional party, has writ

I have the cablegram signed bv
yoursell and Paul Isenberg con
cerning the wrecks at Port Allen
and the added necessity for action
at Nawiliwili. I have insisted that
every project that the engineers
have reported favorably should be
put into the Bill. Unfortunately,
a few davs ago, they beat us in
the Committee on including new
projects in the present bill, but
the fight is still on and I shall do
everything I possibly can for the

The Stay-at- Home Girl And Her Salary
A mother was complaining the other day that girls
nowadays do not want to stay home and learn house
keeping, that as soon as their schooling is finished their
one desire seems to be to get out into the business world
and secure a position. She .'.aid it was little reward for
all the care and training a mother gave them, and that
instead of having a companion and helper in the home,
the modern mother was apt to have in her daughter
only a boarder.
Without doubt there is a good deal of truth in what she says.
But isn't there something to be said on the daughter's side? Isn't
there a factor in the situation that the mother and possibly the father,
if he takes any interest in the subject, hasn't thought of.
And isn't the factor the question of salary?
To be sure, it would seem as if a daughter ought to stay home
and help her parents without the question of money entering into the
matter at all. And hundteds and thousands of girls all over the land
are doing it. They are plentifully supplied by father and mother
with all they need, and they think no further about it.
But not all girls are constituted alike. Some like to have their
own money, money they have earned. Money given to them, no mat
ter how generously, is not quite the same. Others believe if they do
certain regular work in the home day in and out. they should be paid
for it. The old doctrine that a woman ought to find sufficient reward
and hapoiness in doing the wcrk of the home because it is her home
does not appeal to them. And still others as thev see friends and
brothers putting away goodly sums in savings banks have an envious
feeling and are dissatisfied that all their labor goes for naught.
And so they go out into the world to earn money of their own
and the mother is left to carry the burden of the household work; or
else she takes what the daughter contributes and employs some one to
help her. But down in her heart, she is often keenly hurt that me
daughter seems so anxious to get away from home.
One family met the situation this way: The boys were earning
good salaries and each putting by each month a certain amount in a
building and loan. When the daughter, who was bright and ambitious
finished school, she felt that she, too. would like to be saving some
thing, and she knew she was quite as capable of doing it as lior broth
ers. So she put the matter squarely up to her parents. Her mother of
course was anxious to have her stav at home. She wanted her com
panionship. She needed her help. Thev all talked the matter over
and it was decided that in addition to what wns necessnry for her
clothing, she should have a sufficient amount to permit her to save
what her brothers were saving. The course was justified in later years
when a serious illness overtook her, and her savings enabled her to
take a trip that meant the restoring of health to her as nothing else
would have done.
There was no quarreling or bickering about it. The arrangement
was arrived at amicably. But the father was just enough to see that
if she turned into the home the services that could earn and save a
certain amount of money, this money was due her.
Not all parents are so iust. not all parents will take the trouble
to look into the matter in so businesslike a wav. Not all parents per
haps could afford to pay the daughter for her home services.
But if there is dissatisfaciion, if the daughter wants to get away
from home, see if this desire to have some money of her own is not a
the root of it. And if it is possible to pav her a salary for her work
it seems only a matter of justice that she be given it.
