Cost of the World War
The estimated cost of the world
war, to date, is, approximately
$90,000,000,000, a sum almost be
yond the comprehension of the
average individual, It means
per capita' cost of about $55 for
every man. woman, and child on
earth. That expenditures for war
purposes are not growing less, in
the aggregate, is seen by the fact
that the daily cost to all belligerent
is now about $117,000,000. Thi
compares with about $105,000,000
six months or so ago. Now that
the United States has entered the
conflict, it is probable, from thi
time forward, that the expenditures
will increase much more rapidly.

The Freight Situation
Lihue, Kauai, Sept. 21st 1917
Editor, Garden Island:
The attention of your valuable
paper ami the general public is res
pectfully called to the anomalous
conditions existing to clay in our
freight service from Honolulu.
The grinding season being over,
the S. S. ' Mauna Loa's" extra trip
on Monday has been withdrawn,
causing eongestion all around; this
is alright however, but who can un
derstand for what reason the "Ma
una Loa," when she arrives at Na-
wiliwili early on Friday morning,
lands only passengers, mail and
perishable goods and then skips out
and returns nobody knows when,
sometimes on Saturday, sometimes
even on Monday and tiien dumps
the fieight on "the wharf.
Merchants from far away places
are congregated Friday morning
eary to receive their freight, men
and trucks "are waiting, but in vain.
as no notice has been given "of this
arbitrary procedure, and noone'ean
tell when the boat will be back, the
whole resulting in loss o f time,
money, labor and temper, besides
raising a large crop of disgruntled
customers, who are wondering why
they are not served,
Nawilwih, being the first port oj
call, has always had service first
and is entitled to it; but no. the
rich corporation who is serving us
without competition, alas, simply
ignores us, not even having the gract
to notify its customers of. its action.
An outraged public has neaily
readied the limits of patience and
active steps are to lie taken to end
these intolerable conditions by put
ting the case before the public at
large and the Public Utilities Com
mission, hoping thereby that i
speedy end may be brought to this
outrage and normal conditions
again be brought about by the
guilty parties being brought up
witli a sharp turn.
Thanking you in advance, Mr.
Editor, for publishing this expose,
