There will, no doubt, le more or less objection to this bill on the
ground that women, as a rule, are not the equals in intelligence of their

The wealth of flowers and tropical vegetation at Kukuiolono park is
a revelation of what can be done by intelligence and skill.
A few years ago it was supposed that, as a bare and wind swept hill
top, Kukuiolono was useless. Nothing would grow, .-specially nothing
would grow without a plentiful supply of water. Yet it has been trans
formed into a veritable paradise of beauty.
We bow in admiration for the talismanic touch which has wrought
this miracle of transformation.which is doublv valuable to us; first as
an accomplished thing of beauty, an assest, which we may enjoy every
day if we will; and then more significant, we trust, as a suggestion and
inspiration for what may 1m done along similar lines in other places.
May Kukuiolono be the worthy object lesson that may lead to many
similar creations. '

There is considerable complaint abroad about the unjust discrimina
tion against the men who have given themselves freely, and often at
much sacrifice, to the service of their country. This unfair discrimina
tion is evident in this, that they are restrained from buying booze open-

brethern in plain clothes may buy and drink themselves to perdition if
they want to. .,,,.
Evidently this is unfair. If booze is a bad thing for a man in uni
form, why isn't it also a bad thing for a man in plain clothes.
The ordinance is a confession, of what every one knows, that liquor
is incomuatible with efficiency and reliability; and if this is so in the
Army and Navy it is none the less so in all tho walks of life.
It is a mighty good move in the right direetion, but it is an unfair
discrimination; make it universal, then it will be alliight.

Marguerite Clark in "Snow
White" proved a strong attraction
at the Liberty theater and the big
play house was packed at each
performance. Marguerite Clark is
one of the reasons, the rest being
the excellence of the film drama,
probably the greatest spectacle and
most elaborate extravaganza ever
sent to Honolulu without being
billed as "special." There are
several maniintith reels to the offer

given the most careful attention by
