THE GARDEN ISLAND

What It Means
With the Departure of the Kinau from Fort Allen on Friday instead
of from Nawiliwili on Saturday as heretofore, Ave for see the transfer, in
a measure, of the sseptcr from hihue to the Waimea side of the Inland.
The Saturday departure from Niiwiliwili has for long vears heen. in
a sense, n weekly soeial event, where people from all over the Island met
and exchanged the courtesies of life, and kept more or less in touch with
pne another and, always vaguely, vet inevitably, as the guests in a way
of the Lihue people. They were it.
This gave Lihue more or less of a soeial pristige, and more or less of
an advantage . In a measurable degree this advantage will lie lessened
hy the transfer to Fort Allen, and we somewhat question whether this
full primacy of Lihue will be restored by any contingency short of the
realization of the Nawiliwili deep-sea harbor plans. .
We do not Tesent or begrudge the ttmporary change. It is a con
sideration and an accommodation which are due to the Waimea side of
the Island, and we trust that it may prove entirely statisfaetory and be
So far ns any loss to Lihue is concerned we would assure our friends
of the other side of the Island that we rejoice with them that our small
loss is their great gain.
Food Conservation Reports
The food conservation weekly reports instituted throughout our Is
land communities a few weeks ago are exerting n very salutary influence
already. ' These reports of wheatless, meatless and wasteless meals week,
by week, give every indication of being made very carefully, and very
honestly; and that being the ease the ambition to make a good showing
is significant of results. Some leftover, that under ordinary circumstances
would have gone into the garbage can, is carefully saved in order that a
clear record may be possible at the end of the week.
Even the children take an interest in these report cards and are
ready to help make them as neaily ideal as possible by cutting out waste
or reducing on wheat or meat.
We dont know just what use may be made of these, card reports in
Washington, whither the results are transmitted, but at any rate they
have a very considerable use here in stimulating economy, patriotism
Waimea Red Cross Activities
Two cases of Red Cross hospital supplies have been forwarded to
Honolulu by the Western Kauai Unit which will go forward with other
similar cases from other sections of the Territory as soon as liossible.
The ladies of that side of the Island all tlfe way from Eleele to Ma-
na arc most faithful and assiduous in their devotion to this great humane
cause. They have'nt sounded the trumpet over much in regard to what
they have done, but we have reason to know that they have done a lot
and that much credit is due them for their tireless and self sacrificing
There will be a special meeting of the Kauai Chamber of Commerce
on Wednesday to take action on one or two important matters that call
for immediate attention.
One is the postmaster-ship of Lihue: that we may protest against
the appointment of a throughly incompetent, unworthy and unweclome
candidate who is in a fair way to'be saddled on us useless wo ate will
ing to put up with a grossly inefficient, bungling and humiliating ser
vice we had better speak up and make ourselves heard and that right
The United States Government fs taking elaborate anil wise precau
turns, to keep the soldiers it is making away from drink. It knows that
drink does nothing but harm to a soldier.
If a soldier, why not a. munition maker? Or any other kind of a
worker? Or anybody?
Three Of A Kind
The soldier who refuses to fight.
The rich man who refuses to buy bonds.
The citizen who refuses to vote.
