Kauai Retains Her Good Sense Yet!
The primary election returns are reassuring. The scramble of the
unaccredited candidates who rounded up for the running raised some
little doubt as to the assured sanity of the Kauai electorate; but the re
sult seems to show that they can le trusted to retain good men and tried,
and not to make any rash experiments with unknown and doubtful can
There is now every assurance that the right men, on the whole, will
be elected and that we will be fairly secure for another two year peril d.
Apparently the Kauai electorate is not as green or as gullable ns
some people seem to think; witness Ilanohano of Kawaihau who went
through all the agony of a political campaign for the scant recognition
of four votes.
How About A Market?
With hat in hand, respectfully, ami with all humility, we would
like to know if it would not be feasible, in our comunity, to establish an
r-pcn market, which would be a sort of general clearing house for the sale
of food products grown here. And we would farther like to, know wheth
u' this would not be a convenience for all concerned. The raising of food
products is only one half of the problem, the disposing of them is the
other half. To be sure the)'1 are peripatetic peddlers of a few common
vegetables that mostly come when you don't want them, and mostly
" ring the things that you've no use for. and yet feel that you must take,
;"or fear that may never come again; but these peddleis dont by any
means cover the needs of the community, either the buyers or the growers.
The other day in a secluded corner of a nearby valley, we ran across
half a bushel of tine peaches; we cornered them on the spot, much to the
ioy of the Jap that owned them, and still more to ours. He didn't know
hat to do with them; it would'nt have paid him to enter the peddling
-ts against the regulars; but if he could have taken them to a central
market it would have been an easy matter to dispose of them. The ordi
nary buyer can't poke about in secluded valleys for hidden peaches, and
so does nt get them.
A lady has a dinner party on hand for which she wants some partic
ular vegetable, or some particular fruit; -the land may be full of
it but she doesnt know where to get it and so perhaps she has to do with
out it. If there was a market she could ring up, and have it inside of
of ten minutes
The arguments that justify a store as over against the old time tramp
peddler, with his way-worn pack, are the arguments for a market as over
against our present mongrel system of hand to mouth peddiing;- there
c: n be no comparison between the two methods; the only question is,
ire we far enough along to want the new, or shall we say "the old is
The Foe Within Our Borders
Drink is the enemy within our ranks, more deadly than the foreign
foe. If we are going to tight effectively abroad we must cast out the foe
within. It wastes our resources, it uses up our food stuffs, it saps our
vitality. Whatever may be said about any other time, a nation at war
has no use for drink. Russia learned it, France learned it, England
1 arned it. Shall we learn it now, or wait until it has undone us some
more? Prohibition is the crv!
