THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, JULY 17, 1917.
THE GARDEN ISLAND
Issued Every Tuesday Morning

Kauai at the Fair
The recent legislature made provision for an Annual Territorial
Fair, representative of the Resources and Industries of the Islands.
Preliminary arrangements are now being made for this Fair, which
will le held in Honolulu,, presumably in the month of Novr-mlr, It is
expected that each Island will respond with a representative exhibit,
that will do credit to its resources and industries.
What kind of a showing will Kauai make in such a Fair? A mighty
poor one unless we get a move on and that right speedily!
It would lie a most inglorious humiliation for the Garden Island toj
orinj; up me lau 01 ine procession wiui u poor nii-Hsiy rxiuou, uencieni
in ran and meagre in quality. Yet that is just what will haDpen un
less we wake up to the situation and bestir ourselves for results.
At best we are behind in the running. The other Islands are far
and away in the lead of us, both in the matter of equipment and ex
perience. We have lost time to make up; only by special effort can
we do it. -
A County Fair
If we are going to participate as an Island in a Territorial Fair
ought we not to do as the other Islands have done, organize a County
Fair first; but improve on our Sister Islands by, in a way, combining
the two Fairs in one, and thus killing two birds with one stone.
We will have to prepare our exhibits and get everything in order
for the Territorial Fair; why not ourselves get the benefit of it oh our
shores just before sending it to Honolulu? This would give us the ad
vantage of a double appeal to enthusiasm it would enable a great many
of our own people to enjoy it who otherwise would not be able to do so,
and at the same time it would give us some much needed experience in
handling such an affair.
Food Commission Publicity
We are in receipt, each week, at the hands of the Honolulu Food
Commission, of a good deal of interesting and useful matter which we
' would like very much to publish just as it comes; but the limitations of
space and the proper mission of a country paper to give its constituents
the local news, warn us against long solid colums of more or less acade
mic matter. This is a newspaper and not a Trade journal or a special
interests organ ; accordingly we find ourselves under the necessity of cur
tailing this matter however interesting and important it may be; which
must be our sufficient justification to the Food Commission, and to any
of our readers who would like to see more of it.
Straw Of Indication
An intelligent observer returning from an extended tour through
the towns and villages of the Pacific Coast comments on the striking im
provement that the "dry" States of Oregon and Washington already
show over the still "wet" California.
Every city, town and village in the dry region bears witness to the
change in the most unmistakable signs of prosperity; finer buildings,
cleaner streets, trimmer parks, better dressed men and more evidence of
comfort, thrift and respectability on every side
Seattle, which a few years ago, was a nest of saloons, blear-eyed
frowsy, dilapidated and generally down-at-the-heels in large sections, is
now, in those same sections, alert, active, prosperous and self-respect-tine
