A Suggestion To The Historical Society
In addition to the very commendable work which the Kauai His
torical Society is doing, in the prist rvation of historical data, facts and
memories, we would surest that measures he taken to preserve the iden
tity of historic places. In the papers that was read at a late meeting
there were frequent references to Kikiula, Enmiasville, the Kellet place,
etc., and very few of those present knew where those places were; t ho
next generation will not know at all.
The Catholic Mission at Moloaa, the Brown place at Wailua, the
sites of the old Mission houses at Koloa.the location of the first churches,
the lirst r-ugar mills, the principal heiaus, the places famous in Hawaii
an legend and siory; these as far as possihle should he located and put
on the map, while the information is available, so that a future age,
which may be more interested in these things than we are, may be able
to say; these things happened here and here and here.
"Slackers Failing In Their Duty"
Under this head there is more or less caustic complaint of the indif
ference that is being displayed in these Islands in the matter of taking
,ip our share of the ''Liberty Loan."
It seems that ur share of this Loan, based on a population of 22S,
M)0. is Sl!l,l7!l.o()0, or a per capita charge ftf ?S1. 47. Now this is a
eery larg" per capita amount, sinet it means 81.47 for every man, wo
man, and child in the Territory, tli'- overwhelming majority of whom
ire not in any position to take up loans of any kind.
Hut of this J'JS.OOO only some '2i',000 are whites, including 11,000
i.MiiTs. Naturally and necessarily this must be mainly a white maim
mrdeu. On the basis of thi- more restricted population the per capita
amount w ill be 17:17; and when all the children, and most women, and
nany men, are eliminated, it mu.-t mean a fairly staggering' per capita
Three and a half per cent seems to us an exceedingly low rate of
interest on an investment; we have long been used to better things, ho
hat it seems much lower to us than to investors elsewhere, so low in
deed that it doesn't look like an investment at all. but like charity. And
doubtless that is the point of view to which we will have to come, and
the sooner we reconcile ourselves to it the better.
Give us a little time to adjust our minds to these unfamiliar things
and we will do our duty. Hawaii has never yet failed in the hour of
need especially in the. matter of money and she will not fail now.
Patriotism And Its Expression
At the last meeting of the Chamber of Commerce a resolution was
passed, unanimously and with spirit, calling upon all good people, es
pecially all citizens, to tly the national ensign. Apparently this response
vas, to a large degree, the ready indifference of the man in the parable,
'1 go sir, but went not.'" A good many, to be sure, meant what they
voted, and they are Hying the Hag, but many others are keeping mum
m regard to their patriotism.
Now some one objects. "You can be patriotic without flying a flag."
Quite right, you can, but it is the simple, and natural, and convention
1 expression of patriotism, for which there is every good reason, and
gainst which there is none. You can be courteous without lifting your
i.at to a lady, perhaps, but you dont get the reputation for it, and your
l.idy friends vote you "an old bear." This is the conventional expres
sion of courtesy which custom demands, and which may not be neglect
ed without some good reason, and without becoming the natural object
of invidious criticism. You can be offectionate without being respon
sive, perhaps; you can bank the fires of love in your heart, and look as
glum as a November morning, but what's the matter with a smile, as a
pleasant indication ot what is going on down in the depths of your be
ing. Of course if you feel mean and nasty, don't belie yourself; but if
you feel happy and kindly why not show it?
You can be patriotic without Hying the flag, certainly, hut the flag
is the emblem of patriotism, and the display of the flag is the customary
expression of patriotism; of course if you dont feel patriotic dont belie
our indifference, but if you do, show your colors that we may know
where vou stand.
