THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY. APRIL 2, 1918.
Magnificent Red Cross Work
"The Hod Cross was founded to re
lieve sufforinfi and to save lives in
war. Hi.t its activities have grown
and extended with enlarged vision in
a progressing world. Its field is as big
as the needs of humanity. It Is the
embodiment of world-wide neighbor
All that has to do with relieving
distress, imposed by dljester, and
making individual and Commuuity
life safer, happier and more efficient
is within the scope of the Red Corss.
This statement of the American
Red Cross War Council shows how
great is the work of the Red Cross
and how great our part In it must be.
Less than a year ago the American
Red Cross was little more than a
name to most of us. Today it stands
for service, active Bervice in which
you and I and all the others who can
not be "over there" share. It stands
for an organization through which the
spirit of our patriotism and our sym
9 pathy flow.
Less than a year ago the member
ship of the A. R. C. numbered a few
hundred thousand. Today it numbers
over 22,000,000. T-venty-two mll'ion
men and women, of all nationalities
who call America their home, united
in this great humanitarian service for
the soldier and sailor of many lands'
who Is pouring out his life blood for
his country, united in service for dis
tress and suffering the war has spread
The past year has been a year of
reorganization for the Red Cross.
America has been divided into four
teen divisions, each division giving
its fullest measure of devotion to the
cause. Hawaii, with the other terri
torial and insular possessions, makes
up the fourteenth division. Maui, Ha
waii, and Kauai each form a branch
of the Hawaiian Chapter.
A summary of the articles shipped
by the Kauai branch since Oct. 15,
1917, will show how the women and
children of all nationalities from
Koloa to Haena are doing their "bit'
for their country.

true patriotism means unselfish ser
vice for others.
All knitted articles are sent directly
to American soldiers and sailors. The
surgical dressings, pajamas, hospital
shirts, etc, are sent to Red Cross
hospitals in France.
Every boy leaving Hawaii to serve
his country is to be given a warm
The Invoiced value of these finished
articles is over $9,000. Some time ago
it was estimated that the volunteer
Red Cross work of the American
women had amounted to over $14,000,
000. So we realize again that "they also
serve who must only sit and wait."

How Kauai Did It
With Oahu going "dry" on April 10,
the Island of Kauai did not desire to
be made the dumping ground for
"wine bums," "bootleggers" and a
large quantity of liquor from the
metropolis; so the Kauai liquor board
decided it would renew no more li
censes. This is the manner in which the
Kauai prohibition situation is summed
up by Eric A. Knudsen, member of
the board of school commissioners
from the Garden Island, who is in
Honolulu on a brief business trip.
"It was decided that the only way
out was to make the island dry," says
Mr. Knudsen, "and I am convinced
that the residents of the island are
standing firmly back of the action
taken by the board. Here is an in
stance where the board of license
commissioners has made 'bone dry'
regulations. It seems to me that the
same thing could be done as regards
the island of Oahu." Bulletin.

Goodhue Says McCarthy Aole
Dr. Goodhue writes from San Fran
cisco to say that he is confident prohi
bition will surely pass, And that it will
be made to apply to the whole terri
tory. He thinks there is not much
chance for the appointment of Charley
McCarthy as Governor, as he thinks
that no one who is not in favor of
strong moral restraints for the terri
tory, will stand any chance to be ap
pointed. He says the suspicion that
McCarthy will not stand for prohibi
tion is enough to eliminate him as a
possibility. He says also that he is
convinvced that the next governor of
Hawaii must be unequivocally pro-ally,
anti-Prussian, and radically antl-sa
loon. He say Washington is very prO'
nounced in its prohibition attitude, and
that those who stand for liquor will
have no standing at Washington.
