THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, MARCH 27, 1317.
LEARNED IN EA3I
A Honolulu paper contains the
following under the heading
"home rule (or Islands nearer":
Robert . Breckons, attorney
and Republican national commit
teeman, arrived in Honolulu yes
terday from Washington and had
many momentous things to say
concerning local and national is'
In Washington Breckons wit
nessed the proceedings of congress
from the time it convened to the
adjournment March 4. He repre
sented some of the liquor interests
in Washington as well as other
private interests and. took a keen
interest in matters generally af
fecting Hawaii. He stated yester
day that it was his opinion that
congress was prepared to broaden
the powers of the territorial legis
lature in several respects and sanc
tion any reasonable measure tper
. taiuing to home rule. Congress
did nothing in this regard at the
last session owing to the many
grave questions that came up. He
said that he believed the time
would soon come when congress
would put Hawaii on probation for
Breckons said that he believed
congress w ill act at the properime
and let Hawaii decide for hersslf on
the questions of woman suffrage and
prohibition. He stated that there
would be considerable opposition
in Washington to giving Hawaii
sole power over public lands. The
present congress seemed fo be of
the opinion that to grant this
would be too radical a move and
departure from the policy of the
United States in such matters.
Breckons thought that within
two years the bill providing that
federal officials, in order to hold
jobs here, must be residents of the
Territory, would pass. t
While in Washington Breckons
met McAdam, Honolulu's new
postmaster. He thinks that Hono
lulu people will like him. McAdam
he said, has had a lot of experience
in postoffice matters and is anxious
to make good in Honolulu.
Breckons found much interes
beiug manifested on the mainland
about Hawaii. From the outlook
over mere, lie said, it looks as
though the Islands wil become
the greatest resort in the world.
Although familiar with the sit
uation Breckons would make no
prediction as to whether Hawaii
would become dry. He stated that
the plan for a "petition-plebiscite"
was unwise and that with
unity of efforts congiess might
have passed a bill long ago giving
the legislature the right either to
pass a prohibition law or put it up
to the vote cf the people.
THE WAR AGAINST
THE BROWN CASE
In its report of the proceedings
of the House of Representatives
last Wednesday the Honolulu Star
Bulletin contained the following:
Representative Wilcox introduc
ed a petition, signed by residents
of Kauai, asking an investigation
of Henry W. Kinney, superinten
dent of public instruction, and the
department of public instruction,
in failing to reappoint Mr. and
Mrs. II, C. Brown as principal and
teacher, respectively, at the Wai
mea, Kauai, school, and that the
house take action" in accordance
with its findings.
Suit Still Pending.
Brown already has brought a
mandamus suit against Kinney
and the education commission to
compel them to reinstate him as
priiciial of the school, Follow
ing the failure of the board to re
appoirt Mr. and Mrs. Brown, sev
eral hearings of their case were
had but the liAnrd declined to
swerve from its initial action. The
petition in the house has been

Washington, D. C, March C.tli.
V Western Republican United States
Senator commenting upon the fail
ure to put through much important
egishition during the recent session
of Congress, asserts emphatically
that th failure should not be blam
ed upon the Senate.
"In the first place." hesaid, "the
House of Representatives has been
dilatory as never before. We did
not get the Army appropriation
bill until February 23rd. Itcartied
S25O.000.00O. end we Had no rea
sonable time in which to perfect
it, though we did add about J30,
000.000 where it was most needed,
and we made portions immediately
available, such as that part relat
ing to aviation items, etc. The
great Sundry Civil bill, covering
200 pages and calling for $150,000
000 was received February 28th.
in the morning, giving us less than
three days to offer the Senate
amendments, report it, get it up
for passage, send it back to the
House after passage where i t
would probably be disagreed, to ask
for conference a n d work that
through and get an agreement in
both Houses, and. get it to the
President for approval. The same
is relatively true with the Army
bill, only we had a few days' more
time, and got it reported out in
five days, or on the 2Sth. And
the greatGeneral Deficiency bill,
covering sixty or seventy millions,
reached us Saturday morning, Mar.
3rd! The Military Academy bill
(for West Point appropriations)
came over Saturday noon. It was
simply ridiculous and ludicrous!
The idea of their sending bills over
to us in that way! It would have
been almost a physical impossibili
ty for us to pass them, even if we
had not changed a word or letter,
on account of the messaging back
and forth in the regular legislative
procedure, when it is considered
that we had before us all of the
conference reports on other mea
sures and the finishing-up of al
most-completed legislation, and
were obliged to agree to the clos
ing resolutions, etc., incident to
the completion and adjournment
of the 64th. Congress.
"Then, furthermore, the Presi
dent insisted upon every pet mea
sure he had on his mind, being
enacted into law, and this held
everybody back in both Houses;
and finally when the Revenue Bill
came over it was rushed through
under whip and spur. Then came
the $100,000,000 credit bill and
orders to arm American merchant
vessels, etc., with but a couple of
days left notwithstanding the fact
that the President had been told
over and over again that it would
be impossible to get his legislative
program through, and especially
these two latter measures, if the
regular suppiy bills were to be en
acted and more especially when he
knew, and we knew, that there
was a group" of pacifists in the
Senate which included I. a Follttte
and his little semi-following of five
or six Senators.
"So now both Army bills (reg
ular, and West Point), the Sundry
Civil, and the General Deficiency,
have failen by the wayside, as have
the Presidential credit bill and the
arming-of-vessels bill. I under
stand that the President threatens
mat ne win not can an extra ses
sion of the 65th Congress, no mat
ter what happens. So there you
The following is from the anti
tuberculosis bureau of the Terri
torial Board of Health:
Although consumption is not
considered an easily curable dis
ease it is now possible to cure it
in a great many cases in which the
proper treatment is commenced
immediately after the disease gets
This is the basis for an appeal
by the nnti tuberculosis bureau of
the board of health to have everv
person who suspects himself of
showing svnitoms of consumption
to ask for an immediate examina
tion by a good physician and to
apply for treatment at once, if it
is shown that he is actuailv a vic
tim of this disease.
The best and most certain treat
ment is given only in a sanitarium,
but the tuberculosis nurse or the
agent of the board of health will
show the patients how to live in
their own homes as thev would
live in a sanitarium, in case it is
impossible for the patients to go
to the hospitals.
The main point to be observed
is that the disease must be taken
in hand in its early stages. Other
wise death is too often the result.
Representative Lorrin Andrews
has introduced the following bill
in the Legislature:
Section 1. The sum of five
thousand dollars ($5,000.00) is
hereby appropriated out of any
monies in the treasury of the Ter
ritory of Hawaii, not otherwise
appropriated, to be expended for
the perpetuation of dioramas of
scenic wonders of Hawaii, and
for preparing replicas of the same
for exhibition, and the painting of
additional dioramas and pictures

For Cake Making
There Is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp,
They are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vege

doughnuts, etc., merely by straining out the food
particles after each trying.
Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richness at smaller cost, It brings cake
making back to popularity. Butter bills are reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.

The board of health examined
the history of about four hundred
cases. It learned that onlv 107

these were made well again and
returned to work.
There were 180 who were mod

To show how necessarv it is to
take the disease early, the great
majority of those who were only
moderately advanced also died.
It is particularly important to
be careful if thete has been con

The fight against consumption
should commence when jt is at
least not more than two months
gone. The early symptor.s include
afternoon feyer. night sweats, loss
of appetite, tired feeling, or a
long cold, It is not necessary to
have all of these svmptons. Some
times there are not more than two
or so present.
As the disease goes on a heavy
cough develops and blood appears
in the sputum. It is then almost
too late to hope for success.
