Tho net result was about $46.00 and
the attendance was good, under the
existing weajther condition.
The Interest in tho Red Cross work
was shown by cash contributions and
tho purchase' of many tickets by tlmse

foglio's efficient effort contributed
greatly to this success.
Tho interest and fatlhfulnens of tho

commendation. Thoir work is chiefly
tho result of ambitious personal effort.
It was not possible to give each one
the instruction and supervision need
ed, but they helped each other, school
irls taught their mathers , and
mothers helped neighbors. Each one
cheerfully "ravelled out" when mis.
stakes wero pointed out to them. It
shows a strong, loyal sentiment when
you find in a neighborhood every fam
ily trying to do their "bit" and willing
out -of their meagre resources to con
tribute both cash and effort. Time for
effort is often as scarce as cash.

Over 1500 People Listen
We Have Learned From. "One Year at War"
To an audience which filled tho
Aitnory to over flowing the Rev. A.
W. Palmer gave an address on "What
we havo learned from Ono Year nt
War" at Lihuo on Sunday afternoon
last. ' .
This meeting was a celebration of
of the fact that Kauai had raised her
quota of tho "Third Liberty Loan" and
that tho "Honor Flag" had been re
ceived. There Is no doubt but that
Kauai will have the great honor of
Two flags as the Loan quota is more
than doubly subscribed.
The program started with a prelim
inary, music furnished by the Band
which was very ably rendered.
At three o'clock promptly the aud
iencorose and .sang "America" as one
person being directed by the Rev. A.
Akana from Honolulu. Then followed
Patriotic Exercises by the ,Hana
maulu School Children and a prayor
by William Hydo Rico.
A beautifully rendered solo by Mrs.
Willie Rice with tho chorus sung by
the Lihuo School Children was next
on tho program.
A collection for the Red Cross of
Llhue Chapter was taken up at this
point and $217.40 was given by the
audience for that noble work.
The Lihuo School Children followed
with exorcises and it was good indeed
to hear them say "we are American
citizens, we love our Country, our
Flag and our President, becaus.0 they
aro tho best, the greatest and tho most
noble on earth."
Address by Rev. Palmer
Then came ono of the most inter
esting addresses that we have heard
for some timo by Rev. A. W. Palmer
pastor of the Central Union Church
of Honolulu, dealing with what we
have learned from One Year at War.
We have been sadly dis-lllusioned
Ho said In brief: "That we had boon
sadly dls-illusloned by tho Imperial
Gorman Government, first by the Zlm
mormann Note, whereby Ambassador
von Berlistorff had plotted while at

Word "camo from Washington yes
terday that the war department is
planning to call out a quota of-draft
men from Hawaii for tho National
Army. Tho figures of the draft aro
now all in the provost marshal gen
eral's ollice, having been forwarded a
short time ago by Capt. H. Gooding
Field, selective draft officer for -Hawaii.
Captain Field is in possession of no
Information from Washington as to
what the draft call will bo but when
ever it comes tho number of men asked
for will be furnished without delay, as
every man in Class 1, has beon physi
cally examined and qualified for serv
ice, and tho address of each of tho
71G3 men is correctly recorded.
It is understood that tho action of
the war department in planning to
call a quota from the Islands is In
esponso to tho patriotic desires of tho
people. It is known that Dolegato Ka
lanlanltolo hns been persistent in his
offoits to have Hawaii included in tho
present call for quotas from tho States.
Furthermore, It Is understood at
Washington that tho Delegato and
other territorial officials, havo demand
ed that tho credit for volunteer en
listments in the army already made
from Hawaii be waived, and not bo
considered any part of the man power
which Hawaii can still furnish.

his post in Washington as a repre
sentative of a friendly nation; then by
Ihe Argentine Scandal and later thru
the Mexican revelations which have
shown us that a great deaf of our
troubles with that country have been
caused by German propaganda, also
on tho manner in which Russia has
been treated while they lay at the
Inercy of the German Imperial Govern'
ment. All in all the first thing wo
had learned in this our first year in
war was that .we had been sadly dis
illusioned in the German Government.
American citizens with German names
He spoke very feelingly on the pat
riotism of the American who bore
German name's and quoted an Instanco
or two" of tills loyalty to "Our Flag,"
ono in particular- was of a man, a
successful lawyer, who gave up pract
ice, everything, to become a soldier,
and who, when asked by n friend why
he did these things replied 'I have
children who will bear this name
of mlno and I want then! to be perfect
ly sure of their father's patriotism in
this our most trying time, and the
best way I-can do this is to offer my
life if necessary to the cause of Lib
erty and Freedom."

and had his audience interested from
tho very start and hold them spell
bound to tho finish of his address.

A few remarks was made by Mr.

The audience was dismissed with

ing that America is in this war till a
