Let Us Get Busy
The most important incident of the week to the people of Kauai is
the appeal, appearing on the first page of this issue, of Delegate Kuhio
and Robert W. Hreekons (the latter voluntarily interesting himself in
the matter) for local support in the fight for Nawiliwili breakwater and
PLEASE READ THE CORRESPONDENCE CAREFULLY AND
WITHOUT A MINUTE'S DELAY RESPOND TO THE APPEAL FOR
LETTERS TO SENATOR MARTINE OR ANY OTHER CONGRESS
MEN WITH WHOM YOU MAY BE ACQUAINTED. THE MORE,
LETTERS. THE BETTER.
( i ET YOUR LETTERS IN THE MAIL BEFORE FRIDAY IN
ORDER THAT THEY MAY CATCH THE FIRST STEAMER OUT
THE NAWILIWILI BREAKWATER MATTER WILL COME UP
EARLY IN FEBRUARY, SO THAT THERE IS NO TIME TO LOSE.
ACT AT ONCE.
The Kauai Chamber of Commerce has done all in its power. For
tunately the people of the island are personally acquainted with many
Congressmen, and the "per'sonel appeal" is at this stage the power that
will swing the appropriation and give Kauai the safe harbor which is so
vital to every interest here.
Don't let any man hold back through modesty or a feeling that
some other citizen, or citizens, mav have more influence than ho. Take
a "trv" at it; and do so at once.
We are entitled to this breakwater for many reasons. e want it
for the protection of American shipping and American lives. We require
it for the promotion of American homesteading.
Since annexation Kauai has paid into the United States treasury
several times more than this, breakwater and wharf would cost, while this
vear (1917) the reeeints from United States income taxes, internal re
venue, etc., would go a long way toward paying for the entire project.
Although receiving our revenues, our government has not, in seventeen
lorn venvs. exnemled nnvthine lu re for public improvements. This Na
wiliwili breakwater proiwsition is our fir?t and only appeal made to Com
Kress, and surely, as a matter of plain justice, if for no otlicr reason
(and there are many other reasons) we are entitled to this appropriation
without a particle of hesitation or delay.
iA-t us put the matter squarely up to the Congressmen who were here
and who know something of the unprogressive, un-American state of our
shinuinc arrangement at Nawilwih. Delegate kuhio, we are satisfied,
is doing all in his power. All advices from Washington indicate that
But he 'needs In In. He needs our help. He has appealed for it.
t.kt k-rmo HAVE YOUR assistance, in the way he
HAS SUGGESTED. BY THE VERY NEXT MAIL.
DO SO, AND THE COMMODIOUS, SAFE HARBOR AT NAWI
LIWILI WILL BE OURS.
Secretary C. P. laukea
The appointment of Colonel Curtis P. laukea to be secretary of Ila-
wiiii has met with a most, or mute, universal approval on Kauai, we
know of no objectors, and doubt that there are any. It was conceded,
of course, that the appointee would he a Democrat, and there was not,
perhaps, in the ranks of the " Wilsonitus'' a man more popular than the
Colonel. : ',
Colonel laukea has been in the public service, in important capaci
ties, many times and under different regimes. He had years of experi
ence in" the land department, was head of the police department, ami
was. un to December 31. a senator. In fact Ins experience lias been so
extensive and varied in governmental matters that he is exceptionally
well fitted for the olhce to which he has been called.
By recognizing the Hawaiians in the second highest, local ollice the
nimnintini? power has conferred a deserved compliment and we believe
"II n l m x.
that it will be generally appreciated.

Cheap Loans To Farmers
The Haiku Farmers' Association, of Maui, will recommend to the
Legislature a "rural credits bill" by which it is hoped that it will he-
possible for agriculturists to obtain long time loans at adventageous rates
of interest through the banks and trust companies, but witn the lerri-
tnvial I'overnment aetinc as intermediary. The object is excellent and
the theory emiallv as good: but, of course, the banks and men who have
money to loan will have something to say. We remember a State which
a number of years ago passed a law making the legal rate of interest in
that State two per. cent. The banks and trust companies, naturally,
transferred their business to other States in which the rate of interest
was higher. The result may easily be imagined.
Money follows the most advantageous grooves. It is folly to try to
bring it below its standardized commercial level, and to do so is to fright
en it awav and leave conditions worse than they were beiore.
The small farmers of the Hawaiian Islands have public
with them, and that is worth more than the results oi any enorts they
mav make to obtain cheap loans from the banks and trust companies.
The former is an advantage; efforts in the direction of the latter might
so is to fright- j
D. Howard Hitchcock, Hawaii's own, famous artist, has been here
and personally made the sketches for the diorama of Wannea Canyon,
about which so much has already been written and said. The fact that
Mr. Hitchcock has the work in hand is a sufficient guarantee that it will
be done light and that Kauai will be proud of the diorama when it is
completed. As an advertising proposition this diorama idea promises to be
the best yet put forward and it seems a pity that kauai could not have
several in the Pan-Pacific building in Bishop Park at Honolulu in place
of the one.
Tut uii.lhkd and armory at Lihue will be finished in six weeks,
work on it having been started with a rush on Wednesday. This struc
ture should prove a great help to the first battalion of the Fourth Infan
try, which has heretofore been without a suitable home.
Automobile owners cannot be too
careful as to the quality of gasoline and
lubricating oil they put tn their cars.
It is not wise to stop your car at
- first one filling station and then an
other. This gives you mixed grades
of "gas" and oil and plays havoc with
We handle only the best grades of
gasoline and oil. And our prices are
lower than you have often paid for
