THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, MARCH 28, 1916.
AGAIN TO FRONT
(Special Washington correspondence of "CHE
Washington, D. C. March 9th:
Senator Chamberlain of Oregon,
today offered amendments to the
Rivers and Harbors bill providing
for an appropriation of $200,000,
for the improvement of the "re
served channel" to the extent of
providing a channel 800 feet wide,
and 35 feet deep at mean low wa
ter and extending 1000 feet from
Honolulu Harbor along the re
served channel towards Kapalama
Bism; $200,000 for constructing
a breakwater at Nawiliwili Harbor
in accordance with the repoit of
the War Department published in
the 62nd Congress, and permitting
- . . .
ine secretary to enter into con
tracts to prosecute the work on
this project to an amount not to
exceed $886,000. exclusive of the
$200,000. proposed by the amend
merit; $100,000 for constructing
the West breakwater at Kahulu
Harbor, and authorizing the
Secretary of War to prosecute the
work to an amount of $150,000
exclusive of the $100,000 proposed
by the amendment.
it tne senate Committee on
Commerce, to whom these amend
ments art reterred, should open
up the Rivers and Harbors bill for
new projects, it is possible that
one if not all of the Hawaiian pro
jects will be included in the bill
Some doubt is expressed that
there will be a Rivers and Harbors
bill enacted into law during th
present session, or if there should
be it will be in the form of a reso
lution providing a blanket sum to
be placed at the disposal of th
War Department for continuing
work upon projects upon which
work has been commenced.

If we enjoy life thoughtlessly will it not be worth
while to discover, if we can, the laws that make joyous
life a possibility? Then nothing can take this joy fiom us, for law
is unchangeable. A mere ephemeral sense of joy in life might be
swept away by disaster. A joy that is built on a foundation of un
changing cause cannot be shaken.

For many of our soundest thinkers do tell us of the ecstacy of life
They are not people who use words merely to make pleasant phrases
They would deem it unworthy of themselves not to express their
honest convictions. And they firmly believe that living, and by this
they mean true living which is the only real life, is joy.
This is what one oi them says, The right sort of education
would make life not a mystery but an ecstacy; not a puzzle, but a

it be well in these days of meditation to seek for these reasons so that
ephemeral joy may be lasting and gloom become gladness?
Each one will reach the desired end by a different route. Each
one must "work out his own salvation," for each has the problems of
his own nature to wrestle with.
But will it not help to take up these problems one by one and
dissect them and see what is the substance in them that is keeping
one from finding life an ecstacy. These problems need picking
thoroughly to pieces. Thev are often many sided. But if we will be
honest with ourselves we will find often there is not a shred in them
of anvthing substantial to stand between us and the joy of life.
And this is true because life itself is essentially joyous and har
monious; and if it is not so in our experience it is because we have
built up obstacles to its thus expressing itself, For it is our spirit
after all that determines what we get from life. And we can rule our
spirit if we will; or rather, our spirit or our sejf has the power, if we
will exert it .to know the fundamental truths of life and to take from
them and make our own, their joy-giving essence.
To make partial application of all this, take for instance the
problem that troubles many of us, the lack of money. If we haven't
enough money, we can know primarily by searching the "deep thing
of good," that the mere possession of money does not necessarily
mean happiness. But we can furthermore pick fully to pieces this
problem of why we have not all we need and in so doing will very
probably find a remedv for this condition. Mind, true mind, can
overcome inharmonious conditions, and if we would use our intelli
gence fully, many of the things that seem to shut out from us joy in
living would melt away.
And what is true of ihis one problem is true of all problems. We
need to go at them honestly, earnestly and with all our mind. And if
we do so, joy in life will come to us in much greater measure than we
have it at present. For it is "good that worketh in us to will and to
do of its own good pleasure."
