The Time For Patriotism
We have been living in tlio midst of cosmopolitan, or ptn nlien in
fluences ho louR tlint we liave forgotten more or less wliat patriotsm
means Perhaps nome, brought up here, never knew ami have the lesson
all to learn.
These are the days to recover it, or it need be, to learn it from the
start. With our County at war, calling loudly for loyal service and seek
ing to place its real friends, this is the time to tly our colors and show
where we stand, unmistakably, by both word and deed.
And if there are any neople anywhere who ought to be loyal and
patriotic to the United States it is surely we of Hawaii. We owe to them
our very existence as a people; we owe to them our ideals, our civiliza
tion, our prosperity our safety.
For nearly half a century now the American has been pouring bene
fits into our midst with an unstinted hand. We have been made from
the ground up by this generous poliev, surely we cannot afford to
forget our obligation. Having enjoyed the bounty of America during all
these years we cannot be daf to the call of allegiance or recreant to the
demand for service in the hour of need. Henetieiaries in prosperity, we
surely cannot be slackers in emergency. And we vfill not; Hawaii will
hold her own in loyalty and patriotism with any like community in the
land and will do her share in the forefront of all the rest.
Join The Red Cross
We beg to call attention to the notice in another column, in regard
to the Red Cross Campaign to secure at h ast "()0 member for Kauai.
And then having read the same, we beg you to ready for the fail
solicitor who shall wait upon von for your membership, and that of your
family and your' servants.
This is an every-iruwis affair. There are are other ways in' which
the well-to-do classes will bear their special burdens and make their
special contributions; you may not be able to get in there; this is Un
democratic opportunity. For the very small sum of $1.00 you can par
ticipate in this most vital and most indispensable service to your country ;
no one should fail to get in on it.
An ideal suburban village has been growing up just outside of Lihue,
almost unnoticed it may be, for the housing of the Grove Farm Labor.
.Contrary to the common hit-or-miss custom of many Plantation in by
gone days, these houses are being built according to a most careful and
intelligent plan, and in keeping with the best requirements of sanitation
The houses themselves are neat, artistic and convenient. There are
cement cooking ranges and washing sinks for each house; stationary
cement tubs in batteries for laundry purposes; concrete fitted baths
with hot writer appliances of the kind so dear to the heart of the Jan:
an abundant water supply, cool and pure, from the mountains, laid on
in each house; careful sanitary provision for drainage by means of open
cement drains that can easily be Hashed clean ; every thing open and
clear for easy inspection, ('onerous litrie gardensurround these cottages
that are already showing flowers and the promise of shade and fruit
trees. And l ist of all these ideal cottages, already some 50 or so in
number, are ranged along a broad macadamized street, so that they will
enjoy more or less ot the social amenities ot Inc.
This is practical philanthropy and good business at the same tinn
Surely such generous treatment ought to go .far toward making labor
contented and happy, which must also mean clheient and reliable.
