JOHN BARLEYCORN LEAVES
Midnight tonight marks the hour
that old King John Barleycorn will
make ht3 exit from tho Territory, to
take a vacation for the period of the
balance of tho war, and It Is to be
hoped for all time.
The sale of liquor was supposed
stopped on July 1st on Kauai, but In
some unforseen manner the. sale of
beer was made possible and this has
continued from that date until tonight
midnight, When the Islands become
bone dry as far as the sale of any
kind of Intoxicating liquors are con
serncd, except those that are used as
for mechanical, scientific, sacramental
or for medicinal purposes.
This bonedryism means that our
little group of islands will be more
prosperous than ever before, that our
people will have more money than
they have had previously, and that the
citizens of this section of our great
country will make all the better cit
izens, now that they have gotten rid
of the serpent that they have been
nursing in their bosom. It means that
the ones who used to come home on
payday night with but a portion of
the money that received for their
labor in their pockets, will now come
home with all of it and that these same
households will have the things that
they need, instead of a few bottles
Whun you hunt; out the colors spare

The eyes of an unhappy world are
watching your flag with steadfast
faith that a lonesome seaman reser
ves for his star. It has given new
hope to the proud and to the poor
everywhere in this world. It Is the
symbol and the achievement of the
two noblest human attributes
strength and compassion. It springs
from the enduring good that there Is
in the heart of humanity. It stands
for the liberation of all men.
And it can never fail, It can never
be humbled, because that motive lies
deep in every human consciousness, as
permanent, as sure, as inevitable as
tears or laughter or hope or faith In
God. Philadelphia Evening Public
DO NOT BORROW TO BUY
The Federal Reserve Bulletin says
that one of the most encouraging and
gratifying features of the Third Lib
erty Loan was that apparently there
has been little use of bank accomoda
tions for the purchase of the bonds.
It estimates that probably more than
80 per cent of the bonds aro already
fully paid for.
The financial statements of the va
rious Federal reserve banks indicate,
according to the Bulletin, that not
much borrowing from the banks was
done by the subscribers to the third
loan. They either paid cash or bought
on the installment plan.
This eases a great deal the burden
of the banks, upon whose shoulders
rests the financing of the business and
industry of the country.
THE PRESIDENT ON MOB SPIRIT.
"I have called upon the Nation to
put its great energy into this war and
it has responded responded with a
spirit and genius for action that has
thrilled the world. I now call upon
it, upon its men and women every
where, to see to it that its laws are
kept inviolate, its fame untarnished.
"I can never accept any man as a
champion of liberty either for our
selves or for the world who does not
reverence ami obey the laws of our
own beloved kind, whose laws we our
selves have made. He has adopted
the standards of the enemy of his
country, whom lie affects to despise."
- l'residi-nt Wilson.

AMERICAN AND GERMAN
In view of the fact that there have
been several wild stories being circu
lated among the plantation laborers
that there is niruse of buying War
Savings Stamps as they will be worth
less after the war, and that we will
never be able to cash in our Govern
ment securities, at par value, it would
be a wise thing for the people who are
doing the circulating of these stories
as well as those who are buying the
Government securities to read the
following report from the Treasury
Department in regards to our finances
as compared to those of Germany, and
then they can decide for themselves as
to whether our Government has the
cash and will be able to pay off this
indebtednes or not
The total resources of the United
states are estimated at about $250.
000,000,000; our annual earnings are
estimated at about $50,000,000,000,
Our national debt, including the third
liberty loan, may be put around $12,
Before the war our Government was
spending about $1,000,000,000 a year.
When the war is ended, Interest
charges, less the interest collected
from our loans to our allies. Govern
ment insurance expenses, and other
necessary expenditures growing out of
tho war may be conseratively be esti
mated at something like $1,000,000,000.
We are confronted, therefore, when
peace comes, with raising only a couple
of billions a year revenue, a slight task
for a Nation of such tremendous
wealth, capacity, and resources.
The resources of Germany before the
war were estimated to be $80,000,000
000. The annual expenditures then of
the Imperial Government were about
$800,000,000. Her debt now is $30,000
000,000, and her resources and man
power have been severely impaired.
After the war she is confronted with
additional expenditures growing out of
the war totaling some $4,000,000,000.
Tho interest of her war debt, even
if the debt grows no larger, will be
about $1,500,000,000. Although she is
niggardly in her pensions to private
soldiers and their families, $1,000,000
000 a year would hardly suffice to pay
even small pensions to her injured and
the families of her soldiers who have
been killed. Her war debt must be
paid sometime and a sinking fund of
5 per cent would add $1,500,000,000 to
her annual taxation. Here is a total
increase of $4,000,000,000 all due to the
Of course both the United States
and Germany may greatly increase
their debts, but the increases will not
change the relative statements.
The German Government has drain
ed the German people of their gold,
even their jewls and heirlooms, and
yet the Imperial Bank of Germany
now has but little over $500,000,000 of
gold in its vaults. The United States
ka3 made no special effort to obtain
gold, has made no call upon the peo
ple for the precious metal, and yet to
day has in its Treasury vaults prac
tically $2,500,000,000 of gold coin and
1 Golf vs. Gardening
There was once was a man and
this was long -before there was war
or rumors of war who had belonged
to a small town golf club where his
daily game had become first habit and
then necessity. This man moved to a
city where the golf dues were prohib
itive to one of his moderate salary.
For a few weeks in early Spring he
practiced in his own back yard with
mldiron or putter, or stood poised over
an imaginary ball and waved hla arms
in mid air in a vain effort to keep vp
his driving form.
One day his wife said to him: "Why
don't you put that physical energy into
a garden, Bob?"
"Why not?" thought Bob scratching
his head and surveying the possibili
ties from out of the kitchen window.
During all that summer, 6 p. m.
found Bob with sleeves rolled up and
hoe in hand. The dinner hour was
pushed forward to seven thirty so that
two good hours could be spent in the
garden befpre that time.
Gardening proved Just as good an
appetizer as a game of golf and .much
less expensive, besides furnishing the
table with fresh vegetables all summer
long and a surplus for canning.
Such a substitution for golf or ten
nis this summer should make a broad
appeal when there is the added incen
tive of patriotic duty.
Interest in sports has changed even
as have other things, nothing is "as
usual." There will be less golf and
tennis and more hoeing this summer.
Instead of turning straight to the
sporting page of the paper the mas
culine world will belook first to see
what the infernal boches are doing to
the Western Front and then to see
that the weather report indicates and
how that applies to crop conditions.
For the women, interest in the fash
ion sheet has lagged. There is first
the casualty list to scan, a thing read
with dread and yet which cannot be
passed unread. Then there is the col
umn on home canning for her war
garden is so promising that she is
sure there will be much to be put up
for the winter's use.
