Fly The Flap!
Do ns wcsny, not nn we do, for we arc Ruing to lo better! .lust as
soon as the Gakhkn IsI.anh can get hold of a Hag and n pole to fly it on,
we are going to "hold up" every man we meet, and insist that he give
evidence of his patriotism by Hying the nation's colors.
We notice that many of our Japanese friends are Moating the Ameri
can Hag over their homes and places of business; where are our native
(iood bunting Hags we understand can be got for three or four dol
lars; every man should have one and the island should blossom like a
rose garden in spring.
This is the way we are going to talk when we get our Hag, and then
we are going to throw in the expletives!
From The Attorney General
Editor Tin: Garden Island.
Enclosed herewith I beg to hand
vou a copv of n letter received this
day from the Attorney General.
Publication of the same in your

The Mokihana Heads The Way
Tiik lames of the Mokihana Club feel very much set up over their
prospective admission to membership in the General Federation of
Womens Clubs of America. The Mokihana is the first club on these
Islands to take this stop, and it, indicates the intelligence and progres
sive spirit of this club, that it lends off where all the rest will doubtless
This atliliation with other chilis throughout America will bring our
local club into closer touch with the great el ill) movements of the world,
and will give them fresh inspiration and added dignity as well as much
valuable club information.
United States Marshal,
You are hereby directed to give
full publicity to the following
"No German alien enemy in
this country, who has not hitherto
been implicated in plots against
the interests of the United States,
need have any fear of action by
the Departmeni of Justice so long
as he observes the following warn-
Tiik Mokihana Ciab has been an active and progressive factor in
the social and intellectual life of this community, and in a sense of the
whole Island for the. last years. There have been times perhaps when
the men, some of them, kind of held their breath and had nightmare
visions of the sufTragette campaigns, and the wresting of the sceptre of
control from the hands of men, but as we have listened to the reason
able propositions, and nave wateneu ineir good results, we have tor
gotten our fears, and have more and msre been willing to give over into
their hands the things which we ourselves perhaps ought to have doiu .
And, though we may be a little shy about admitting it we are really
very proud of our organized wives, sisters, sweethearts and daughters.
What Is This School Survey?
The purpose of the proposed school survey, as outlined by competent
authorities, will be to examine into the whole matter ot public eduea
tion on the islands, and to test its fitness and elliciencv. It will deal
with the course of study, its flexibility and its fitness to the require
mi nts of the Territory; the text books, their adaptation to the compre
hension and the needs of the children; the qualification of the teachers
to do the work required of them, and the kind of work done; the cqiiii

It is expected that a commission of experts will come to the islam
headed ly Claxton.tlie I. S. commissioner ot education of Washington,
and will spend several months here; long enough to become thoroughly
familiar with our conditions and needs, so that they will know what
they nre'doing when they make any suggestions.
The cost of this work to the Territory will be nominal, we under
stand, as these men are under salary by the federal government, am
only expenses while here will he borne bv the Territory
Such a commission can scarcely fail to give us very valuable results
and we should hail its advent with sat ''faction.
As To The Growing of Rice
Chinese are. the best growers of rice, on the small areas availabl
here on Kauai; Japanese the next, ihe industry has been ruined by
scarcity of men, high wages, high rents, and Hoods that destroyed tin
dams and waterways, in a number of valleys, i. e. Wainiha, W'ailua. am
Waimea. lo restore them, money and material must be available. With
paddy at even 4lc. Japanese and Filipinos cannot be attracted from
the bonus-paying sugar plantations.
With the decline of the industry, buildings, flumes and bridge
have been removed or gone to ruin.

Will The Government Go Into The Sugar Business?
Wholesale Liquor Dealer
Telephone No. 102.
Rather a radical bill has been introduced into the Legislature by
Lyman of Ililo, providing for the Government ownership of a Cent nil
Sugar Mill near llilo, and the establishment of others in Puna, north
llilo, and Hamakua.
Apparently the plan, to start with, isto take over the Waiakea Mill
property on the expiration of the govern mi nt lease, now near at hand,
and conduct it as a Government enterprise.
The ostensible object of the move is to protect the interests of the
We would recommend the Government to go slow in any such pro
position; it has troubles enough on its hands now without sugar.

It transpires that the situation at Hanalei is complicated bv tlx
presence of sejiticaoiuia, or blood poisoning, eoneiirienl vith anthrax,

Septicnomia, as we understand, though a serious disease is not a viru

nor threaten to be particulaily fatal.
In view of the fact that this disease was known to be present, and
seemed to aeeoimt for t he dea t hs ; and in view of the farther fact that
anthrax had never been heard of on these l.-lands. it seemed not onlv iim.-t

cognize ii a such, hideed there is every probability that the early fata
