When at the unveiling of the For
rester's Service Kins in Honolulu
i.ist week. Delegate Kalauiuuaolc
made some uncomplimentary re
marks about the various and differ
ent "Commissions" which the Prest
dent has appointed, and talked alto
sethcr in a strain which sounded
very much like ft disloyal or a diB
contented child would, he should
have been stopped on the spot, not
that the people; who read and think
on these subjects will be misled
ibout the; conditions, but for the sake
if those who do not understand the
.ondit ions. Some might say, Well, he
has been to Washington and must
know what he is talking about."
The Delegate said that he had no
intentions of criticising the men
handling the prosecution of our part
in this war.
Immediately after making this de
claration he commenced to criticise
every thing that has been done V)r
that will be done by the United
He said that the Shipping Board
had failed to deliver the goods.
(Secretary Daniels of the Navy, says
the Shipping Board program is a
The delegate then declared that we
have but a handful of men in France.
(Secretary of War Baker announces
that we have more than half a mil
lion there now.) We would also call
attention to the fact that Americans
are holding the third longest line on
the Western Front.
Again he says that the Liberty
Motor is an absolute failure. (The
best engineering talent in the Coun
try declare it to be a marvel of tech
nical skill and a huge success..
The "Scientific American," a maga
zinc which is recognized as an an
authority on all things mechanical,
and one that is absolutely trust
worthy, says in regard to this motor,
and the delays in the airplane pro
duction: ".Vow with regard to the Liberty
Motor and the oft repeated statement
that the "Motor is a failure" and that
"quantity - production has broken
down." we take this opportunity to
say that both these statements are
absolutely false. It Is true that the
work of bringing the motor to the
stage in which it would be ready for
production in quantity, and provid
ing the machine tools, gages, etc., for
quantity production have taken long
er than was suggested. liven at
that, the time consumed in propor
tion to the difficulty of the task that
lias been accomplished, has been re
markalily short. The public dissa-
pointment has been due to over-sun
l.uine prediction by men who did not
know, men who were nof familial'
with the magnitude of the task.
Speaking from first-hand know
ledge after a personal investigation
by members of our staff conducted
at Washington and at Detroit, we are
in position to say, first, that the
Liberty Motor, as it stands today, is
a distinct success; secondly, that its
production in quantity has commenc
ed and is proceeding at an accelerat
ing rate; thirdly, that these motors
as turned out by quantity-production
methods, are shinding up to the Gov
ernment tests, which, by the way, are
more severe than those to which
the best type of foreign motors are
subjected; and lastly, that, not only
will our avaition service possess the
lightest motor for its power, but
more; powerful motor than any other
in existence to day.
Therefore, we are glad of this op.
poitunity, speaking with first-hand
knowledge, to tell the American pub
lie that, though the delay, amounting
lo about three months is greatly to
l.e deplored, the country will witness
from now on, a rate of output of mot
ors and planes, that will go far to
lompensate for past dissapointments.
It is gratifying, moreover, to learn
that the necessity Tor regarding this
; s a one man job has been recog
nized by the appointment of J. II.
Ilyan of New York and Montana as
Chairman of the Aircraft Production
Hoard. Mr. Uyan was formerly the
bead o the Amalgamated Copper
Company and later became President
of the Anaconda Copper Company.
The worthy Speaker then came
forth with the statement that the
Hawaiian people were starvng, be
cause of the lack of I'oi and lice.

If necessary to rip out work it is well to wind the yarn

thousands of acres of rice and taro
land that are not now in cultivation.
That the majority of the Hawaiians
depend upon the Chinese to raise
these food products for them instead
of doing it themselves. That they
migrate to Honolulu and the other
larger towns in the Islands and ex
pect to make a living there in the
already over crowded labor circles;
live in the tenement houses, where
rent is next to nothing, work just
enough each week to supply their
actual needs and loaf the balance of
One example of this was seen in
Honolulu, where there are . in the
neighborhood of two thousand steve
dores, or so called ones, that applied
for water front passes to one firm,
when only about eight hundred could'
actually be given steady employment.
This shows the fact that we mean
as for example one of them was ask
why he did not try and get another
Job and he replied, "they pay me
more as a stevedore, and if 1 get an
other job, I can't do this." The rec
ords showed lu this case that he was
able to secure about two or three
days each week at stevedoring and
as this kept him after a fashion he
was perfectly satisfied.
What's the matter of some of these
men who eke out an existence in
Honolulu coming to the country and
raising taro and rice, as well as oth
er things that are eatable. There is
plenty of land which can be had al
most for the u-sking.
If they really are starving, which
we very much doubt, then they must
learn to help themselves a little and
not depend to much on Others.

Honolulu, May 27 Captain Peque

tingent, who is in Hawaii on fur
lough, will have charge of the mob
singing "Btunts" at the Territorial
Fair on the evenings of June 10th
and 11th. Island people will have an
opportunity to hear and learn the
famous songs of the British, Cana
dian, Australian and American forces
overseas and of the American and
Canadian training camps.
Several troops of soldiers from the
Oahu cantonments will be grouped
around Captain Pequegnat, in front
of the grandstand, and will aid him
In the rousing choruses. The noted
Canadian army officer has consented
to take the place of Chaplain Lough
ran, who organzed the Knapsack
Circuit among the Oahu canton
ments and had offered to give the
two entertainments at the Fair but
was given sick leave recently and
ordered to the Coast for treatment.
Captain Pequegnat served three
years and a half on .the west front
with the Canadians, finally being put
out of commission by a boche gas
attack which laid him out uncon
scious for five days. He does not
figure that he is out of it entirely
however, and plans to return to the
lines when his furlough ends.
He is declared to be an entertainer
of rare power, and certainly is one
of unusual experience. He assisted
