The New War Secretary
; S5 imperitoRi (0k mM&M
President Wilson quite eridenily has idea all hii own in regard
to caterial for secretaries of war. Secretary Garrison wai in a treas
ure. " 'discovered " by the Presided, for certainly no ore outside of
executive circles, perhaps, had ever thought of Garrison for a cabinet
portfolio. Be that as it roar, the late secretary did reasonably well in
exceedingly trying times.
But if when the former appointment was made people were in
qu;ring. " Who is Garrison?" what have they now to say cf the rew
appoiT.ee. Mr. Baker? There are lots of Bakers in our great country,
of alj colors, kinds and degrees; but if anyone were asked to name a
Baker of Cabinet caliber, he would probably be stumped. i
It .ppears. however, that the real and genuine Baker the man
who will bring fame to the Baker family, whose name extends modest
ly from the first pages of Webster's old blue-black spelling book to
K:j it appears that this Baker, we say. is a man of real note. He
was a pro'.ege of Tom Johnson, the great leforra mayor of Cleyeland:
i.rA for two terms, up to 1915, was himself mayor of that interesting
city. He is of boyish appearance, but an eloquent speaker and a man
of deep learning. Just what about him impressed the President with his
fitness for the war portfolio we are unable to state, but presume that
this ruling qualification will disclose itself later on.

Road Building In Florida
Although when appropriations are being made we may gather tLe
idea that a very laige amount of money is being expended upon the
roads of this territory, we are really not doing anything extraordinary
in that line at all. Besides the State appropriations for general road
bu:.d:ng and large sums lor the Dixie Highway, counties and tewns
of Florida voted in the last eleven months of 1915 the enormous sum of
fiv, 000.000 for roads. Single counties of that State voted and raised
in those eleven months more money for highways than the entire Ter
ritory of Hawaii has produced for roads in two years.
hor reasons which are hard to explain. Kauai has not had a
serious road problem in several years, and we are not interested di
rectly in the subject of large appropriations for road-building pur
poses. We are indirectly interested, however, in better roads for
Oahu and Honolulu, and would like to see the work undertaken in
a rtally large way, as they do in Florida and in other parts of the
United States; thus getting through with it in place ofletting it drag
a'.cr.g over a period of yean.
In the passing of Hale Hooni theater building last week there
was swept away a structure which has played a part in three epochs
of Lihue's development. It was a great day many years ago when
this building was thrown open as Lihue Store. Next came the day.
wnen, too sma.2 and out of-date for modern needs and ideas, it was
replaced by the present, fine Lihue Store building, the old structure
beir.sr remodelled into a theater. As a motion picture house it served
a good purpose and well; but progress, which has ever stalked on the
trail of the old store building, caught up with it again, and now it
has been wiped away; and in its place a modern theater will appear.
This new theater will in itself mark an epoch, for it will be the firt.

Dxclakatio.vs of war between Germany and Portugal will
harciy cause a worse nutter tnan we nave already been experiencing
these twenty months past. Something was expected of Italy when
that country essayed to crush Teutonic influence along the Adriatic
but the Italian army came to some little creek in the up country above
Trieste and apparently went down it, Portugal cannot reach Ger
rr.any nor can Germany get at Portugal, so the war between them will
likely not even reach some river but will probably consist merely of a
battle between the cartoonists in the newspapers of the respective
The reappointment of Justice Robertson to the head of the
supreme bench is a recognition of fitness and successful administration
in the past. In the Federal court Mr. Horace W. Vanghan may sue
ceed to the position vacated by Judjje Dole, but he nor no other per
son can take the place of Hawaii's Grand Old Man in the hearts of
the people of these Islands.
v prinking in these Islands were permitted only upon prescrip
tion of responsible physicians, as is proposed in one of the measures
now before Congress, there would be precious little drinking here.
Liquor is a social proposition and a luxury, and figures so little as
medicinal necessity that such a restriction as is proposed would be i
tantamount to outlawing it.

The o;estion of whether or not Kauai people follow the sugar
quotations in the Daily Wireless was answered yesterday in the af
firmative. The type made the morning quotation 4.46 in place of
5.46. Well it started a seemingly endless string of anxious inquir
ies. Yes, people do read the sugar quotations.
We are LiSTBNino fer a noise like the organization of that mill- j
tary baseball league. It is time some of the teams were being lined
up, if the season is really to start about May 1. j

Vii.i.a Might profitably recall just now that it was General Funs
ton who went after another bandit named Aguinaldo in the Philip
pines a few years ago.
It is sincerely to be hoped that these questions with European
powers will be settled before the baseball season opens.
