Kauai In Case Of War
The possibility f war between tin- United States ami any other
large power, or eombinatimi of powers, bring "ut in startling relief the
question nf tin' position of Kauai in the matter of fond supplies. As
everybody knows this island is n.t self sustaining. It is anything else.
Tlii' only two things we have here which would keep loiy an. I soul l
our population together for a sliort time an' riee ami beef. Tlii.-i- would
run out, or t line so expensive in a short tinii- that the poor wmild be
unable to bu presuming that war cann' ami our usual supplies from
the coast were cut ofl.
With worM conditions so disturbed and uncertain at pr, -cut. wv
fci l that our plantation managers and land-owners should g-ive sonn
serious thought to this matter of making Kauai able to take ear.' of her
self in ease the worst conies. A good plan might he for the own. r .'f
land to turn over, for a period of a year, traits of. say. ten a' r. s. to
laborers that they know would act in good faith on condition that they
grow tlie necessities of life. Then let there be a general community de
termination to buy this produee fr,,in the local growers, even should the
war cloud disappear and the skies clear.
The danger of war is admitted at every hand. Should it come uel,
steamers as the (!rea Northern and the Matson boats would, in all human
probability, be taken by the government.
Honolulu would probably be able to get some rein f by .enmng small
steamers to the eoat for suppli"s, but Kauai would b. in a ofiy pie
kb', indeed. Tin danger could be oiTset. perl.ap-. by turning va.-mt
lands to faithful workers, as above stiKKitid, lor a y. ar or until Mich
time as world peace may come.
Credit Belongs To Kauai
In "Hawaii Educational Review', for February page is a letter
frmn Mr. A. P. Taylor of the Promotion Committee to Mr. II. W.
Kinncv, Superintendent of Public Instruction, notifying him of having
le.'-eivod a gold medal for the exhibit at San Diego Exposition in whh h
the exposition committee in making the award "particularize- the bun
galow school house as the dominant feature which cause.! th. in to maki
ih" a-var !."
The first bungalow school-house was designed and built by a Kauai
)nan ( i, Hnfgaard, of WVmica, and is still standing on the grounds
of Waimea school. Mr. Hofgaard was school-agent at the time. A n.-v
room wa needed but very little funds were available. A lot of oi.i black
boards were at ditY. rent schools of the districts so Hofgaard conceived the
idea of making the blackboards do for walls, l ave it op. n above the
blackboards, to save the expen.-c of windows and let the eaves project
sutheieiitly to keep the rain .-lit . and voila 11. fmii"i; o.n air seho..!
rooin. which he and others improved upon slightly aft. rwarls -o they
have now what is called the Kauai type and the Kain-i..' type.
The original open air school-room is the third room in the m..kai
row of open-air-bungalows in the Waimea school. They have eight of
them at Waimea school, and the originator has built -JO ,,f them between
Mana and Kalah.-o.
Tin: I.w.isi.ATrKK should really take up seriously the question of
adequately compensating district magistrates. As the matter now stand-
magistrates are barred from the cream of 1,-g.d practice, so that the tend
ency is naturally toward iueinVieiiey in the os-met courts We are not
referring to, or thinking, especially, of Kauai, for we have been fortunate
in hen, 2 able to s.-cure on this isian.l very emeu nt district magistrates
for the small -alaries provided by the legislature. But as a Territorial
proposition, the principle is wrong. A district mngistrat" should be paid
as much as a rirst-class lawyer could earn in any given district. In that
way, and in that way alone, can the -tan-lard and ii.t.giity .four initia
tory courts he maintained.
