The Lihue Armory
If enthusiasm is to lo kept up in the Lihue companies of the Na
tional Guard the armory proposed and partially planned for the hattalion
must be provided without delay, Wet weather prevails many evenings
in Lihue and it is asking too much of men to drill in the mud or on
damp, slippery grass all the time.
We hope the donors of the money for the proposed armory, r their
representatives, tyul the Board of Supervisors may get together .on this
matter at Wednesday's meeting of the latter and reach a conclusion
which will result in the early completion of quarters for the local mili
Woman At The Bottom Of It
As the dust of the recent political battle on the mainland clears it
becomes more evident that women played an important part in it ami
brought about, directly, the re-election of Mr. Wilson. It may
be an ast6nishing fact to some of our readers to know that 2,CXX),
(KK) women voted in the recent election in one-fourth of the States. The
fact that seems to fasten the re-ch;ction of the President upon the vote
of the gentler sex is, however, that only two States in which they have
woman suffrage (Illinois and Oregon) gave a majority to Hughes, while
ten suffrage States (Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Mon
tana, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming and Washington) swung into the Wilson
column. Of course some of those States are nominally Democratic any
way, but a majority of them have always been figured asjvasonahly safe
Republican territory; and the "hand that rocks thecradft" undoubtedly
rneked the lluehes "boat in that territory.
"lie has knit us out of war" and the shadow of Roosevelt bejjind
.Tudue Ilimhes were the principal factors which influenced the policy of
the women in the suffrage States, and it is now clear, in the light of
fuller details which have come to hand, that they carried the election.
The labor vote did not do it. That is plain, for the reason that the
great labor States, almost without exception, gave their electoral votes to

A wihki.kss mkssaok the other day announcing that the great housr
of II ackfeld & Company had decided to go out of the liquor busines-s
created surprise on Kauai and many were inclined to doubt the state
mcnt. We have assurances; however, that the report is correct. Years
ago the elder Paul Isenberg objected to the liquor end of the business of
he great house. Others of the larger owners have been coining to his
view with the result that the decision referred to has been definitely
readied. The example of Messrs. Ilackfcld it Company may be followed
by other large concerns, anil the departure of the big house from the
business will doubtless prove a wet blanket upon a considerable 'portion
of the liquor concerns.

The artist labeled his unique achievement A Close Shave."
Annoi'Nckmknt is made by the International Paper Company, which
supplies, either directly or indirectly, practically everything used by
newspapers m the Hawaiian Islands, that the price of news print papers
for 1917 will be a cent a pound higher than in 1916. The Federal Trade
Commission, on account of the outlook, has requested the large Sunday
papers of the lag cities on the mainland to reduce their sizoun order to
conserve the supply of news print paper and possibly prevent the BUS'
pension ot numerous small publications.
