RED CROSS JNSPECTION BUREAU
Tho Hawaiian Chapter of tho Ameri
can Red Cross has recently received
orders from Washington to organize
an Inspection Bureau in Honolulu,
where all chaptor work must be In
spected before being shipped.
As all. tho Hawaiian Chapter work
is now being sent to Siberia tho Hono
lulu inspection Is final and thus evon
greater responsibility rests on our
Chaptor than formerly, when inspec
tion bureaus In Washington and in
France hadd the right to Inspect our
Mrs. Beatrlco Castle, Supervisor of
Women's Work, for this Territory, has
appointed Mrs. Clifford Kimball, Mrs.
C. A. Rice's sister, to represent tho
eastern section, and Mrs. E. A. Knud

of tho Kauai branch on this Honolulu
E. A. Creovoy, vocational Instructor
for Kauai schools, expects big things
from tho school gardens this year. Ho
has purchased a fresh supply of vege
table seeds from the mainland, which
ho' intends to distribute to tho various
schools on the Island for school
Wm. Hydo Rico Is making a largo
planting of Bento's Hybrid corn on
his ranch at Haena.
In pursuanco with a call of tho
chairman, tho Board of Supervisors
of the County of Kauai, held a short
business meeting at Its offlco on Fri
day afternoon at 2 o'clock. Present
woro H. D. Wishard, chairman; T.
Brandt, J. F. Bottencourt Jr., and A.
Tho chair stated that tho object of
tho meeting was for considering the j
advlslblllty of continuing tho County's
present work on bridges and roads,
owing to tho present financial con
dition of tho County.
After general discussion had on the
matter it was decided by a unani
mous vote as follows:
1. That after the foundations for .
tho Wallua bridge havo been laid, ox-1
pcndltures for which work, not to !
exceed tho sum of one thousand dol-
lars ($1000) per month, and tho entire '
work made safe from floods, etc., tho j
whole work shall bo suspended until '
2. That each district In tho County :
bo allowed $800 per month for road
By another vote of the Board, Mr.
Moragne, the County RoaVT Engineer,
was Instructed to go to Honolulu and,
1. to confer with tho Public Lands
authorities regarding tho construction
of roads in Kawaihau, and in Lawal,
also in regard to tho expenditure of
tho present, appropriations for tho
(2) to make satisfactory arrange
ments with the Standard Oil Company
regarding asphalt sent to tho County,
sonio at Port Allen and others at Ha
nalel. At 3 p. m. tho meeting adjourned to
meet again at tho call of tho chair.
Tho homesteaders who expected an
authentic statement from Charlie
Rice contradicting that he advocated
a roductlon of 6 percent for cane trash,
were dlsapolnted when receiving
last week's "Garden Island."
His follow neighbors were sorry to
read that "M. S. Henrlques gets sore"
at a meeting reported. They trust tho
community will not think too harshly
of this young aspirant. Ho is yet
young and must expect criticism
when in the political ring.
The question of water is still worry
ing tho homesteaders of the last ser
ies. From tho first, two prominent
and public spirited homesteaders un
dertook tho duties of arranging for
tho care of the reservoirs and ditches,
also the distribution of water upon
condition that those who so benefited
would share tho expense of labor so
incurred. Now, after enjoying the
privllages of the water for some time,
somo of them are guilty of not coming
through with tho refund of tho neces
sary money; but aro still taking quan
tities of water to the detriment of
those who willingly meet their obli
gations. In one case tho owner of
tho land has evidently let tho entire
cultivation from plowing to harvest
ing to a gang of orientals under a
profit sharing agreement, who greed
ily take the water but "no pay dollar."
Wo doubt whether tho above men
tioned method of developing homo
steads would meet with tho approval
of the Government. There Is a credit
able community already around tho
section, which- naturally strongly ro
I senta such Interpretation of tho home
j stead laws. They havo built attractlvo
homes only to bo confronted with a
' bunch of shacks opposite them. If tho
itiwner Is not prepared to take up rest
' dence at the present moment there Is
no excuse, for him to "dump" a gang of
j orientals and permit them to erect
' such buildings adjacent to the main
road, from whence It is a frequent oc
! currenco to see naked children bath
ing in tho ditch. It Is to bo hoped that
any ono tempted to this sort of thing
I will realize that he must consider his
1 surroundings and harmonize his act
ion to tho standards and ideals of his
neighbors, and cooperate with them
to make an attractive community sec
tion. Mentioning Homestead laws, the let
ter of Manuel Correa In tho last Issuo
of tho "Garden Island" has already
, set somo persons inquisitive as to
I whether tho Homestead lots referred
i to aro legally held by tho present
1 occupier. Tho law especially states
I "after a person has onco taken a honie-
stead ho cannot take another in tho
Territory." Wo understand that at
'least one citizen is taking action.

It seems from data received from
Honolulu that Hawaii's proportion of
the grand total is to be tho trilling
decimal .0011275 per cent. If tho total
loan for the whole" country is six bil

about six and three quarter million,
and If the total is seven billion then
our share will be nearly nine million.
Just what proportion of those a

How the Schools Start

Tho opening of tho schools on Kauai
was marked by an unprecedented
shortage of teachers. Hanalel opened
with only tho principal four teachers

and ono teacher-s seven short. Kala
hco had only the principal and ono
teachor eight short. Tho High School
was three iliort; Kapaa, three short,

The present term of court bids fair
to have the smallest callendar In
many years. Even If tho Grand Jury
Bhould find a true bill In every one of
the few cases there wouldn't bo more
than half a dozen of thorn, and none
of them serious. The reason for this
falling off, especially In crimes of
violence where tho knife Is tho ready
instrument of passion, may be that a
great many of the Filipinos, who are
most given to that sort of thing, havo
been drafted and are keeping the
peace or disturbing It olsewhero.
It may be also that the reign of pro
hibition -and consequent scarcity of
Intoxicants may havo contributed ma
terially to this blessed result.
