of Governor of Hawaii. Wo cannot

It does seem that a man who says

might say just a littlo bit more, and
tell us who is going to bo District

Ex-Gov. Carter Coming
Hon. George R. Carter is expected
to arrive on Kauai tomorrow morn
ing, to open a Red Cross campaign.
Mr. Carter has always been a leader
of men, and has been in public life for
many years. Ho is -probably ono of
tho most successful campaigners Ha
waii has ever known. He Is probably
one of the best Red Cross boomers the
United States can boast of. His whole
souf seems to bo in tho work, and he
puts an energy Into It that very few
have at their command, either for that
or any other public cause.
Vlr. Carter, says: "Next to wearing
Undo Sam's uniform, I find the besU
thing is to work for tho Red Cross.
Nothing gives mo moro exhlllratlon,
nothing feeds my soul better."
Mr. Carter has been promoting Red
Cross activities on Hawaii and Maul,
and our exchanges speak Very highly
of his efforts.
Mr. Carter expects to arrive on
Kauai tomorrow, Wednesday. Wal
ter McBrydo has been appointed as
manager of the campaign He has
appointed committees and sub-committees,
nad has formulated the fol
lowing itinerary, which, however, it
may be necessary to changu in some
This, it should bo understood, is a
preliminary visit by Mr. Carter, for
the purpose of meeting the various
committees and Red Cross workers,
and making preparations for pic cam
paign, which will open on May Gth,
and end on May 11th.
Mr. Carter's itinerary for his pre
liminary visit is as follows, subject
to minor changes:
Mr. Carter arrives on Kauai Wed
nesday morning. On Wednesday af
ternoon will meet tho Red Cross work
ers at Kealia.
Wednesday evening ho will show
some war films at Kealia.
Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock, he
will meet teh Red Crops workers and
general public at Hanalel, and at 3:30
p. m. ho will meetn tho workers and
citizens at Kilauea.
Friday afternoon, at 4 o'clock, he
will meet tho Red Cross workers and
the general public at the Armory, in
Lihue, and in tho evening ho will show
the war Alms at tho Tip Top theater.
Saturday afternoon he will meet
Red Cross workers at Makawell.
Saturday evening ho will show tho
war films at Eleelo Hall.
On Sunday ho will rest.
On Monday ho will meet Red Cross
workers at Waimea and show tho war
films in Waimea Hall in the evening.
Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock ho
will meet Red Cross workers at Koloa.
Mr. Carter will bo accompanied by
Mr. Rath of the Palama Settlement,
who is said to bo one of Honolulu's
It is said that tho war films are of
Intense Interest. It takes an hour to
run them, and they havo been well
received everywhere. Theso will bo
shown for tho benefit of tho Red
Cross work, and tho admission on tho
other islands has been fifty cents, or
a dollar for reserved seats. The films
are the last word on tho war, and the
best pictures that havo reached us
from tho scene of the great battle
field of Europe.
Maui and Hawaii have made some
very large individual contributions,
and Kauai hopes to make as good a
showing. Small, individual subcrlp

A meeting of homesteaders took
place nt tho court house in Kapaa
last Sunday afternoon for tho purposo

homesteaders, and to elect delegates
who will go to Honolulu tomorrow
for tho purpose of Interviewing the
Governor and tho Superintendent of
Public Lands upon the question of
water for Irrigating purposes.
Tho haolo element, for somo reason
of other, was conspicuous by their
absence from tho meeting, tho major

called to hear tho report of the dele
gates to Honolulu.
All Seem Satisfied
The new steamer schedule seems to
give universal satisfaction. Arthur
Buchholtz, manager of the Koloa
Plantation Store, says: "Yes, that
seems fair to me. Two steamers on
this side, and two on the other sldo
will give us mail four times a week.
That's good enough. I remember
when we got but one steamor a month.
It seems very advantageous, this new
Says Manual R. Jardln, of Kalaheo:
"Yes,I don't soo but what tho now
schedule is all right. It seems to me
that it ought to bo satisfactory to
Karl Roendahl, manager of Mciirvdo
Store at Eleele, says: "It looki.- to mo
like It ought to satisfy everybody. I
am not quite clear yet as to tho Mauna
Loa, but It matters little. Wo get
will get good servlco."
J. I. Silva, of tho Eleelo general
merchandise store, said: "Yes, it
seems to be all right. I havo not had
time to study the now time table
much yet, but It seems to give us all
a square deal."
There are no bettor kokuas on earth
than the Hawaiian women. Thoy aro
generous, good hearted, and' willing to
sacrifice for any ono .who Is in need,
no matter of what nationality. The
Hawaiian women of Waimea havo
formed a section of the Western unit
of tho Red Cross on Kauai, and have
been active In promoting Red Cross
work, as well as In endeavoring to
relievo distress wherever found.
Tho society Is known as "Hut Kea
Ulaula o na Makuahlnot Hawaii o
Waimea," which means the Red Cross
Society of tho Mothers of Hawaii and
Tho society is now planning t- give
a real Hawaiian concert at Waimea
Hall on Saturday, tho 13th, ut which
many of tho old-time melea and melo
dies will bo given by Hawalians who
aro skilled In that lino. Some of their
songs are very plaintlvo, and very
beautiful, and thero aro a number of
flno singers in tho Waimea district.
Tho tickets will cost ono dollar for
a reserved seat, and fifty cents for
general admission. Tho net income
will Jjp entirely devoted to tho Inter
ests of the Red Cross, and It is hoped
that tho noble efforts being put forth
by theso loyal Hawaiian women will
bo encouraged by every person who
can possibly attend or pay for tickets
for others. Thus an opportunity will
not only bo presented to hear real
genuine Hawaiian music, but at the
same tlmo help the government and
bring comfort to our bravo boys who
aro fighting for us over in France.
Remember the date, and plan to go to
tho Red Cross concert at Waimea on
the evening of tho 13th.

Let Lower Lights be Burning
There was walling and gnashing of
teeth In Waimea last Thursday. Dep
uty Sheriff Crowcll saw an auto going
through the street like a streak, one
night, without a tall light. Ho not!
fled the policemen that the law must
bo obeyed in regard to head lights
and tall lights. He thought it was
better to avoid wreck nnd disaster ly
prompt action than it was to feel sorry
afterward, and every man who passed
through tho town after that fof sev
eral nights without having the beacon
light burning, was promptly arrcsied.
Thero were nine men !n court on Fri
day trying to explain to Judge ITof
gaard that, honest to goodness, they
had forgotten their matches, that tho
Prestollte tank was empty and they
didn't know It until it was too late to
remedy it, that the storage battery
wasn't working right, and that petrol
eum didn't seem to be quito so good
in somo ways as It used to be. Hof-
gaard is a humorous soul, and while he
shedding tears of sympathy for the
poor fellow who forgot Ills matches,
can smile at the man who doesn't know
that the sun has gone down, and yet
can fine a man who doesn't obey the
law. So there were a number of dol
lars collected as fines, gladly (?) paid
Into tho exchequer by those who for-
It Beems to bo a fact, it is a fact,

will go out after they aro lighted, and
honest, well-meaning people may be
caught when their tall lights aro nut,
through no fault of theirs.
Social Service Workers
It has long been Increasingly evi
dent that Llhuc Is well awake In all
matters of social welfare As an ad
ditional evidence of this fact it may
be noted that the Lihue Union Church
has been conducting a series of Pas
sion Week services devoted to various
aspects of Social Service. One day
was dovoted to National Social Ser
vice, with food conservation interests
represented by Miss Elsie Wilcox, and
Red Cross work by Miss Mclntyro.
Another day was given to social ser
vlco for children, with instructive and
inspiring talks by Miss Kuhllg on child
wolf aro work; by Judgo Dickey on tho
court and tho children, and by Mr.
Lydgate on Camp Sunday Schools.
Another day still was given o Social
Servlco for Adults, with an address by
Mr. Loomis on Rural Y. M. C. A. Work,
and by Mrs. Lydgate on Domestic
Aid for the Camp Home.
Theso addresses had tho advantage
of being first-hand presentations of
facts and conditions by those, who
'wore personally familiar with them,
and who knew what thoy were talk
ing about, and this gavo them an In
teresting and convincing quality of
vividness which such presentations
