Visit Of The Promoters j
Kauai has been inspected by and has inspected the Hawaii Pro- j
motion Committee. j
Ve have heard at f.rst hands what the committee is trying and!
hoping to accomplish, what the other islands have been and are doing
for the committee and what the committee expects of Kauai. j
We like the committee over here. They are about as well round-;
ed out specimens of jolly optimism as have struck the beach in moons: :
and their visit, taken together with unpreceder.tedly high sugar, has;
left us in fjne hurnor.
J not how much good the committee accomplished on its tour ve are
unable to ay at present, but the visit has certainly resulted in a bet
ter understanding at both ends of the line and that is a great deal.
Kauai is not, nor has it ever been, opposed to the campaign for tour
iits. although some members of the committee seemed positive that
such was the cav;. There has been and is, however, pronounced apa
thy on the question and that may have been mistaken for opposition.
And there is a reason for that apathy, i. e.: Not one person in
a thousand on Kauai, perhaps, is either directly or indirectly serious
ly affected, or likely to be, by tourist traff.c. When we have more
men interested in hotels, garages, resorts and the like we will have
more boosters for tourists.
However, conditions here are changing rapidly and what may be
true now may not obtain a year rjenr(..
The Lihue Armory
It has been found that the armory which Lihue wants and should
have will tost at least 14, Wj in place of This increase i
partially due to an advance in the cost of material, but principally to
additions made necessary if the building is to be all that had been ex
pected of it.
The total amount originally raised for the Lihue armorv was
11,500, but when bids were called for on the plans drawn they ran
all the way from f 14,00 to more than f 18,000, and some of these
tenders were not for everything apecified in the full plans.
A new effort has been made arid up to now Jl 1,000 have keen
subscribed, with a little more in sight to be used in a pinch. This
will not be ruite enough, although it would justify placing lumber
contracts and going ahead with the work by day labor, perhaps.
The -mbjett it mentioned today for the reason that two or three
thousand dollars more tan be used handily, and anyone wishing to
come forward with a part or ell of that amount will confer a favor by
notifying Colonel liroadbent at onte.
WhilT the Lihue armory will be used principally by the three
Lihue companies, it must always be remembered that it belongs to
the Fourth infantry and not to any company or battalion; and will be
the center for regimental gatherings and maneuvers.
Iln.o is turning heaven and earth to make of the forthcoming
Civic Convention the biggest and most successful affair of its kind
ever attempted in the Islands. As we understand the- announcements
'rut out, the effort is being made to have u record attendance, und if
that be so wc cordially wish Hilo every suet ess. It is a long swinr
from Kauai over to the second city, but with the enthusiasm of the
last convention to back up the movement wt are inclined to feel that
Mtiite a delegation may be hooked from our local Chamber of Com
merce for the trip.
Tim CiiAMHi'.iM.AiN military bill, which was rushed through the
Senate last week , will give to the United States appioximatly 201 ,000
men in the regular army, 280,000 in the National Guard and 750.000
in hc reserve army, or u total of 1 ,250.000 ready for immediate ser
vice. This will give to America the largest force of fighters in time
of peace ill the history of the country, und should be sufficient to
withstand attack fim any source and hold the fort until other armies

Chamber of Commerce Thursday afternoon dears the way for the sup
ervisois to begin woik again and complete the improvement without
delay. As we have remarked before, this small diversion of funds
(if such it may be called) need not delay work on the belt road at all
in fact there should be a harder, longer, stronger pull together than
ever before for completed highway from Wainiha to the Harking
Governor I'inkhani is now at woik upon this matter of water
rights, which is a whole volume of tangles in itself. The territory's
proposal is just taking shape. With the governor's stand that he- is
attempting to save to the tenitorv valuable lights which might pass
under plantation control without adequate value in return, time can
be no quarrel. The detail of the Governor's endeavor to get this ade
ipute i ct ii i ti will be watched with interest.

Motor oil made from asphalt-base
crude gives best
lubrication with least car
bon. Such is the testimony of
motorists and experts alike. As
Lieut. Bryan, U.S.N., puts it: "Oils
made from the asphalt-base crudes
have shown themselves to bemuch
better adapted to motor cylinders,
as far as their carbon-forming pro
clivities are concerned, than are
paraffine-base Pennsylvania oils."
Zerolene is scientifically refined
from selected California crude
asphalt-base not only made from
the right crude but made right. Dealers

THE VIRTUES OF
THE TORIC LENS?
The Toric Lens is the one that
is shaped so that the outer edges
of the glass are juft the same dis
tance from the eye as the center
This not only gives you a
Much Better Appearance
but, what is more to the point, it
gives you a
Very Much Wider Range
You can see through the edges
with the same distinctness that you
can see through the center.
