The quota of each man, woman and child
in the Islands is about -0, and of this amount
not quite one fourth has been subs rihed.
How much will we, the citizens of Kauai buy
this week? ,
AVc have always come to the front before,
ami of course we will be the lenders in this
campaign. While all of us may not be aide

we will lend all lliat we can. So the main
issue is to buy Thrift Stamps. ixieen Thrift

every War Savings Stamp that you bay helps
just that much to win the war, not only by

It is an evident fact that our new Governor
means business. We 'a re glad that at last we
have an executive who will, when he starts
out to do a thing, do it, and not 'spend all the
time that he has allowed himself for the work,
to be spent in entertaining.
Governor McCarthy lauded at . Xawiliwili
last Friday morning and, after resting a few
moments, at once, proceeded on his way to
Waimea to give the land situation in that
neighborhood an inspection, This indeed
looks like business, and we sincerely hope that
lie will have time to finish up the work of the
survey of thedionieslead land on the Island in
the short time in which he has allowed .him

Governor McCarthy is a man of few words,
but wlien he starts out to do a thilig he us
ually does it and does it well, and when he
has finished with the Homestead proposition
here, and on tin; other Islands, we can rest
ass.ured lhat the job will have been done right.

No person in the I'niled States has a right
to make one cent more prolit out of any em
ployment that he would have made under pre
war conditions. "x
I do iol care whether this refers to the
fanner, to the laborer, to the manufacturer,
to the middleman or to the retailer. Every
cent taken taken beyond this standard is mon

the .American .people. ,
Extortionate prolits are not nuressary to se

American people in this war. If we are going
to adopt that theory, we have, admitted every
.. thing that has been charged against us of be
ing the most materialistic, the most avaricious
and the most venal. of people in this world.
If we are going to admit that the Govern-nuM.-
in order to secure the supreme ell'ort of
ils citizens in production, must bribe them
with money to this extra exertion, we have
admitted a weakness of American character,
of American 'civilization and of American

Do not mistake that I am saying that prices
and wages should return to the pre-war nor
mal, because the incidence of war before we
v joined it had Tilled our costs of operation, and
lliere must be compensation in every direction.
Nevertheless, I hold that any man' who has
imide, more than his necessary living out of the
co;l this nation is giving in the blood of the
boys we are sending to France should not stand
out as a benefactor to his community.

was therefore unwilling to be Invol
ved In a war over thla question. He
wished simply ns an honest broker,
to meditate between the two groups
and Bettlo difficulties. Thus he In
no wise placed himself on the side
of the entente (his allies) and dur
ing the negotiations, which lasted
about clgh months by virtue of his
good win and weighty influence, h4
contributed not a little toward bring
ing about concord and agreement.
Instead of taking a position similar
to that of the English, we Invariably
assumed the attitude prescribed to us
from Vienna On every point
Including Albania, the Serbian har
bors, In the Adriatic, Scutari, and the
definatlon of tho Albanian frontiers,
we were on the side of Austria and
Italy, whilst Sir Edward Grey hard
ly ever took tho French or. Russian
point of view. On the contrary, he
nearly always took our part In order
to give no pretext for war. It was
with his help ffiat King Nicholas was
induced to leave Scutari. Otherwise
there would have been war over this
matter, as we should never have dar
ed to ask our allies to make concess
Lord Greyc conducted the negot-
ations with circumspection, calm
ness, and tact. Whenever a question
threatened to become Involved,' he
would draft an appropriate formula
of agreement which Invariably proved
acceptable to all. His personality
commanded equal confidence among
all tho members of the conference
Once more -we issued successfully
from one of those numerous testof
strength which are characteristic of
our foreign policy. Russia had had
to yield to 'us in every point, so
that she was never in a position to
further Serbian ambitions. Albania
was created an Austrian vassal
State and Serbia was driven from the
sea. The result of the conference
..as therefore a fresh' humiliation for
British Concessions in Africa
Similarly when Germany sought
concessions In the Portuguese colon
ies in A.frica, England, as the protect
or of Portuguese interests In Africa,
assisted Germany in obtaining all
Hhe wished. "Thanks to the oblig
ing attitude of the British Govern
meat," Prince Liehnowsky writes, "I
succeeded in giving the new treaty
a form which fully concided with our
wishes and interests. All of Angola
up to the twentieth degree of longl
tudo was assigned to us, so that we
reached the Congo region Srom the
south; rtnd we received the Valuable
islands of San Thome and Principe.

therefore really bejong to the French
sphere of interest a fact which led
my French colleague to lively though
fruitless counter representations
Furthermore, we received th north
ern part of Mozambique, the Likunogo
forming the boundry. ,
The British Government showed
the greatest obligingness in behalf of
our interests. Grey wanted to man!
fest his good will toward us, but he
was ulso interested in furthering our
colonial expansion, it being the Eng
lish idea to divert the developing
German strength away from the
North Sea and Western Europe out
into the open ocean and Africa. 'We
do not begrudge Germany her colon
ial expansion,' said a member of the
Cabinet to me. Great Briton origin
ally proposed to include the Congo in
the treaty as well. This would have
given us a right .gf preemption and an
opportunity for economic penetra
Hon. However, we declined this of
fer, ostensibly out of regard for
giin susceptibilities:. Tie
eerily of the Iiritish Government in
its efforts to respect our rights was
shown by tho fact that Grey, even
before the treaty was completed or
igned, referred to us certain English
promoters seeking investments of
capital in the territories assigned to
us by tho new treaty and desiring
Brtish backing in the matter. He
dfil this with the remark that the
entcrprizo contemplated belonged
within our sphere of interest.
Britsh Concessions in Asia Minor,
Prince Liehnowsky continues: "At
the same time I was carrying on in
London negotiations regarding the so-
called Bagdad treaty. The real
purpose of this treaty was to devid
Asia Minor into spheres of interest,
although this expression was care
fully avoided out of regard for the
rights of the Sultan. Sir Edward
Grey repeatedly declared, however,
that, there existed no agreements with
France and Russia for the purpose of
partitioning Asia Minor.
Alter enlisting the aid of a Turk
ish representative, in the person of
llakkl Pasha, all economic questions
connected with German enterprizes
were adjusted essentially in accord
ance with the wishes of the Deutsche
Hank. The most Important concession
that Sir Edward Grey made to me
personally was the prolongation of
the railroad to Basra, for this point
had been given up by us in favor of
the connection to Alexandretta. Bag
dad had hitherto constituted the ter
minal point of Ihe road. An Interna
tional commission was to attend to
the navigation on tho Khatt-el-Arab.
