A Democratic Fourth
We question wlietlier Kauai lias ever peen a more live ami democra
tic Fourth than that eel. bntted this last week.
All da-se. ami conditions anl from all quarters' of tha Island were
gathered in Lihue finm an early hour in the morning till near sundown,
and the enthusiasm and good fellowship of a democratic occasion was
evident on all sides and in many ways.
The out -door Hportn, morning and afternoon, riveted the attention of
the knowing ones who understood the intricacies of the game and could
tell why they ran and why they didn't, and the rest of us, who were all
at sea, found unfailing interest and enjoyment in watching the crowd.
The patriotic exercises at the Tip Top were perhaps a surprise as to
what is possible in the way of a thoroughly democratic assembly. The
theatre was crowded to overflowing with all kinds and conditions, and
vet there was the utmo-t reverence and good order throughout the whole
afTair, in spite of the fact that mu"h of what was said and done went
over the heads of a great many.
Tho- who didn't catch the words caught the spirit of Patriotism,
and there were interesting ami hopeful indications of a crystalizing na
The addresses were excellent and appropriate, and were received
with much enthusiasm. Jt was very fitting to recognize the advent of
the new elements in our citizenship by giving them a prominent place
on the program. The singing of the "15attle Hymn of the Republic"
by Mrs. It ice gave just the needed variety and finishing touch to the oc
casion. We are moving onward!
Divided We Fall
There may be some justification for divided counsels in the time of
peace and prosperity; in' the time of danger and disaster there can le no
such justification; we must recognize the compulsion of a stern necessi
ty and pool our counsels as well as our interests, and stand together as a
man in defense of them.
Whatever differences of opinion we may have cherished in the past,
when we were free anil could do a little friendly scrapping among our
selves if we wanted to. the time has now come when we must bury our
differences and stand together in support of the common good and in
vigorous pro-eeution of the righteous cause thai we have undertaken.
IT; that putteth his hand to the plow and looketh back is not worthy
of the kingdom, and generally he that putteth his hand to the plow and
looketh back comes to a disastrous end. As a matter of National pride
and honor, but also as a matter of National safety or even of existence,
it is up to us to stand together and go forward with no uncertain mind
and no wavering determination.
Nor is this far away, academic and in theory only, but a very prac
tical issue here find now.
We who are Americans need co jvictions, and need to stand bv them.
We are in a pitiable condition if we are so badly at sea that we don't
know whether we are right or wrong, and don't know whether to pull or
lie down in the harness. Heaven preserve us from much of that sort of
wandering in the fog or we are undone!
