Visit of the Congressional Party
This coming week we will welcome the Congressional party to our
shores. Somewhat smaller in number than former similar parties have
been it gives promise of being of high quality, including men of national
reputation, and 'members of very important committees such as Educa
tion. Public Lund's1, Conservation, Xaval affairs, Pacific Islands and Ter
While the visit will be too short to enable us to make much of an
acquaintance with our guests, or for them to become familiar, save in a
very supeificial way with our island and our needs yet we will certain
ly endeavor bv hospitable and courteous treatment to make all the im
pression we can on them, and we will also endeavor, by a respectful yet
emphatic setting setting forth of our interests, to influence them in our
favor. At anv rate when thev depart we trust that they may be able to
distinguish Kauai from Hawaii, and remember that it is a harbor we
want, and not a concrete road to the volcano.
Food Conservation Reports
The churches throughout the length and breath of the land are be
ing required by the Food Conservation Hoard of Washington to collect
and forward weekly reports from their respective parishes or rood cen
servation accomplished in those parishes.
Cards are to be filled out for each household and forwarded to the
minister, who will collate the information and transmit the same to
These reports will give the number of "wheatless" meals, the num

week. These cards are to be made up as of Saturday night, and must
be turned in at church Sunday morning, or to the local committee that

With the increasing shortage of transportation facilities and the
consequent compulsory elimination of all but the necessities of existence,
it is a question how lone gasoline for automobile use will te allowed.
If cement and structural steel for building purposes are considered
non essential and denied transportation, will gasoline, for other than
business purposes anvwav, fare any better? If the automobiles them
selves are not to lie allowed transportation, will not the gasoline to run
them fall under the bann also?
A fuel commissioner will probably be appointed for the Territory,
and he will doubtless take action in the matter.
Not unlikely it may end in a rigid discrimination against the use
of gasoline for any but strictly business purposes and the elimination of
all "joy riding" and the use of the automobile for recreational or social
The New Income Tax
The new Federal income tax will interest a good many people who
heretofore have not bothered about an income tax.
If you have an income of $1,000, unmarried or of 82,000 married,
it means you. You are required to make a tax return on or before
March 1st 1918, and such income will be subject to tax as follows:
Normal Tax. over 83.000 unmarried, or 84,000 married 2.
Specific wai tax over 81000 unmarried, $2000 married 2.
Incomes over $5000 will have to pay an additional sur-tax ranging
from 1 upwards.
Dividends will be deducted and an allowance of $200 each for de
This is the time for America to correct her unpardonable fault of
wastefulness and extravagence. Let every man and every woman as

duty, as a dictate of patriotism which no one can now expect ever to le
