Peter And Paul, Again
The following is tlic main part of a lill introduced in the Legislature
hv Representative. Lyman:
"Section 1. The Treasurer of the Territory of Hawaii shall advance
to the several Counties and to the City and County on the last day ol
each month a sum equal to one-tittecnth ot the. amount coiiecieu 101 men
use, on account of the real and personal taxes during the preceding
"Section 2. The said sums so advanced shall he made by warrant ot
the Auditor out of any monies in the general or current funds, and the
AtuTUor shall make a ehartie of 2'' per annum as interest on the a hove
advancement from the date of the advance to the dale of the sf mi-annual
settlement of the tax collections with the several counties and ihe City
and County." .
It is hard to understand why a prosperous community like tins I er
ritory should Ik-"in the hole" at any time in the matter or finances,
hut it appears to have hecome a habit in certain places. W'e have had
wonderfully good times in all lines of business, and surely then' should
be some way of working around this idea of "borrowing'' and 'ad
vances.'' Of course in the above proposed measure the money would he
borrowed from the Territory by the counties, when needed, so that it
would be a case of from "one pocket to the other," in a way. Hut ihe
principle is not right ami we hope effort will be made to abandon it.
The following from the Wall Street Journal is of interest and impor
tance. It has the ring of "buncombe," but coming from the money
center . if the United States it cannot he overlooked. The Wall Street
Journal expresses the- opiniovs of enormous wealth. The editorial reads
Next to the invasion of l.clgiuni perhaps the most costly mistake
made by the Kaiser in his early plans was his contempt for the ilritish
iirniv. ' He should know lx-tter now, but seems not to have learned by
experience. Looking at the American army, not nearly so large as that
swl.in nut into the field, he iniirht say America is unprepared. So it is
from the viewooint of the drill sergeant. Probably we would fall down
if we tried the goose step. . ,

If the short sighted Kaiser sees nothing out a mobilization ol un
trained men behind our little army, he makes his last and greatest inis-
tnl-i. Well in the forefront is a mobilization that can begin at once to
feed finance, and furnish the Knteiite Powers and in such an avalanelu
as to give the 'War Lord"' a dose of war which should cure him and his
militarist bodyguard forever.
The Christmas Pictures
Lihue is highly favored in the matter of art exhibits. 1 he latest ir
the Christmas exhibit now on at the Lihue Hall. J he display consists
mostly of water colors of much interest and great beauty, mostly of i.
land scenes, many of familiar Kauai subjects.
There are two particularly filie ones of Hanalei under unusual am
strinkingly favorable conditions. With surprising facility and ilaiine.
the artist lias caught the vivid coloring that scares some people, but, t
our mind, gives the special charm to Island scenery.

The Case of The Czar
The most startling development of the week in international circle-.
has been the overturning of the govermnant of Czar N'u-liolas in Lu. -sia.
Yet, why startling? The Czar of Ihtsia has l een the veriest ninny
ever since he came into power. 1 he people ot Lussia accepted liim ;i
their ruler because, on account of the system in monarchies, he was
legally entitled to the place; but he was never more (it for it than a Texas
jack rabbit. Just what Russia will do in establishing a new government
cannot now be foretold, but it is to be hoped that something belter than
a monkey on the throne will he developed out of the present upheaval.

I r was unfortunate that tlic ball of the National Guard had to be
pi t poued for a week on account of had weather. Everybody imdi-istands
the extraordinary circumstances, however. One of the severest rain
.-tonus in j ears has prevailed throughout the Islands and Kauai has
( aught its share of it. However, the weat her man has promised much
hi tler conditions for next Saturday night, and it is hoped that everybody
will lie present to assist in dedicating the new Lihue armory at that
time. The Lihue armory, by the way, is far and away the laigest hall
on Kauai and i- something the whole island should be proud of. The
opening Saturday night is going to be one of the leading event- of years,.
