THE GARDEN ISLAND

WHEN YOU subscribe to n Liberty Loan you sub
scribe to the sentiment that the world nnist be
made safe for democracy and subscribe to the fund
that is to make-the world safe for democracy.
You subscribe to the belief that innocent women
and children on unarmed ships shall not be sent to
the bottom of the sea; that women and children and
old men shall not be ravished and tortured and
murdered under the plea of military necessity; that
nurses shall not be shot for deeds of mercy, nor hos
pital ships be sunk without warning, or hospitals
and unfortified cities be bombed or cannonaded with
long range guns.
You subscribe to the doctrine that small nations
have the same rights as great and powerful ones;
that might is not right, and that Germany shall not
force upon the world the dominion of her military
WHAT YOUR SUliSCRIPTIOS ME AS 8
Yon subscribe, when you subscriln' to a Liberty
Loan, to the belief that America entered the war
for a just and noble cause; that our soldiers in
France and our sailors on the sea are tighting for
right and justice.
And you . subscribe to the American sentiment
that they must and shall be powerful, efticient, ami
HAD SEWS FOR HER LIS
THE WAR NEWS from the eastern frout these
days is bad news for the German people. Quo
tations from German newspapers portray the gloom
that overhangs the people in the large cities. That
the people in the small towns and country are equal
ly, depressed is not to be doubted.
The Liberty Loan bond buyers of the preceding
loans have their share in Ihe success of the entente
allies. They furnished the sinews of war not only
to fight the U-boats and to build ships, not only to
raise, equip, and send our soldiers over, not only to
supply them and our allies with food and munitions,
but more than $(,000.000,000 of their money has
ltecn loaned to our allies so that they may prosecute
the war with vigor and strength.
We here at home have an opportunity to send
the Germans some more bad news. The Germans
have great respect for money; they know its vital
value in waging war. They know, too, that the
support the American people give a Government
loan measures largely the support they give their
Government, the moral as well as the financial sup
port they give their armies in the field.
A tremendous subscription to the Fourth Lib
erty Loan will be as distressing to the German
people as a defeat for them on the battle field, and
it will mean as much. It spells their defeat; it
breaks their morale; it means power to their ene
mies. A subscription to the loan is a contribution
to German defeat and American victory.
PROHIBITIVE RESTAL of
KOKEE CAM PISa SITES
IN HIS ADDRESS in connection with the
inauguration of Governor McCarthy, Secretary
Lane commented on the value for us who live
in the tropics, of suitable mountain houses or
places of retreat for a short period at least
during the summer. "As the man of wealth,"
be said, "now wisely has his hill house and his
seaside house, so there should be reserved for
those of more modest means some opportunity
to gain the advantages of the rarer, cooler air
of higher altitudes."
In pursuance, presumably of this wise
suggestion, the Kokee camp scheme has been
developed, and some forty seven camp sites
have bevn located, varying in size from 0..1
acre to 2 acres.
Thus far this is very commendable indeed
and very hopeful. Hut just note the conditions.
For unimproved camp sites an annual rental
on the basis of twenty-five dollars nn acre will
be charged. With the permit each occupant
will 1h required to furnish a bond of five hun
dred dollars to insure faithful compliance with
the imposed conditions.
The permission to occupy will be for a
period of five years only. Occupancy must be
gin within six months and must be exercised nt
least fourteen days each year. Improvements
to the amount of one hundred dollars must be
made within eighteen months and such im
provements must be kept in good order. Upon
the termination of the lease only thirty days
fs given for removal of improvements. A thor
oughly sealed cesspool must be constructed of
adequate size to care for all bath, sink and
waste waters. The lot must be cleared of lan
tana or other noxious weeds, and must be kept
clear of them.
Twenty-five dollars an acre rental for ab
solutely unimproved waste land fifteen or
twenty miles from anywhere; land that here
tofore has been rated at a fee simple valuation
of twenty-live cents an acre. Whence has
sprung this sudden and trenienduous jump in
valuation, from 25 cents to say $ 400.00?
During all the long years of private con
trol of these lands, during which these lands
have been exploited in the interests of wealth,
the public has been looking forward to the
time when they would return to the control of
the Government with the confident assurance
that the man of moderate means could get a
little foothold there for a nominal sum, but it
now begins to look as though we had got out
of the frying pan into the fire, and we are
almost ready to wish ourselves back under the
monopolistic but fairly generous control of the
This exhorbitant rental, "shameful and
outrageous," as one camper puts it and the
various annoying conditions seem to indicate
the policy of the mercenary Khylock Jew rather
than that of a fair minded public spirited
department of a democratic government.
RA FJSE IDEA
ED CROSS headquarters in Washington
have recently cabled a request for 5000 scrap
books from Hawaii for use in the army and
navy hospitals in connection with the war.
The books will be furnished by the Federal
authorities and are to be filled by school child
ren with pictures cut from magazines, books,
We would like to suggest that as far as
possible these pictures should be illustrative
of Island scenery, life, conditions, industries,
etc. In this way they can be made not only
more unique and interesting but they will also
serve as a most effective means of advertising
the Islands. The convalescent in the hospital
who jacks up a scrap book that ia distinctively
Island and therefore fresh and novel will find
it much more interesting than one full of famil
iar pictures from American magazines which
are an old story to him. He will study the un
familiar and attractive pictures. They will
give him a favorable impression of the Islands,
and someday that impression may be translat
ed into a trip to them for himself or bis friends.
Five thousand such books continually
circulating will be studied by many times
five thousand men, and contain great possi
bilities for making Hawaii known throughout
all Allied civilization.
LESS GLASS OS THE ROADS
Since the advent of prohibition there has
been a most commendable falling oil' in the
amount of broken glass scattered along the
public highways to the undoing of auto tires
and drivers' patience. Perhaps it was only a co
incidence, the broken bottles and the intoxicat
ing drink which they contained, and perhaps
it is also only a coincidence that the prohibition
of the latter has entailed a falling off of the
former, but it is a natural inference. At any
rate the change is a welcome one whatever the
A general order addressed to all employees
in the railroad service service of fhe United
States has been issued by McAdoo enjoining
the utmost courtesy and consideration towards
the traveling public.
It seems that the idea was spreading that
railway employees, being in a sense government
officials, could afford to be more or less inde
pe'ident and indifferent to fhe general public
after the manner of government officials in
McAdoo has called down this misconcep
tion in no uncertain tone and will do his
utmost to correct it.
"The public be damned" policy will in no
circumstances be tolerated on the railroads
under government control.
Every employee of the railroad should
take pride in serving the public courteously
and efficiently.' Courtesy costs nothing, and
when it is dispensed, it makes friends of the
public and adds to the self respect of the em
ployee." This is mighty good doctrine for any de
partment or for any walk in life and may be
well considered a first pre requisite for success
in public life.
In view of the wide spread reform which
will be wrought by this injunction we are sorry
that we are not living in a section of the
country where Uncle Sain runs the railroads,
but there is room even here for increased cour
tesy and consideration and we hope that this
McAdoo injunction may filter in.
According o Hindenbiirg a salient is a
military vantage point a general takes because
he does not want it, and gives it up in order lo
make the action victorious. Svntllr Ptmt-ln-ivlliuyrncvr.
WAILUA RICE CROPS
The rl e landa bordering on the
Wailua River will yield a total of
more than 8000 bags of cleaned rice
for 1918. The crop is not as big as it
should bo as the weather conditions
were not entirely satisfactory for rice
growing this ye.ir.
Ida Takido's rice plantation at the
head of navigation on the south branch
of Wailua river yielded very poorly
this year. Instead of a yield of thirty
bags to the acre", as expected, he re
ceived an average of only twenty-two
bags from his first crop.
There is a total of 240 acres of rice
l.ind and 40 acres of taro land under
cultivation, bordeding both branches
of the river. Very little Idle land may
l.e found In this region, but the plant
ers say they are very Bhort handed
and that double cropping Is impossible
with the pre.scnt shortage of labor.
COME OF THE DITS YOUR
LIBERTY BOND WILL DO
It you buy a $100 bond of the Fourth
Liberty Loan you are lending the
United States Government enough
money to feed a soldier in France a
little more than seven months. Or
you have furnished enough money to
i Kive him a complete outfit of winter
and summer clothiii:;, including shoes
j and stockings, and slicker and over
coat und blankets, with enough left
, over to arm him with a t;ood revolver.
: You have Cone that much to beat back
It takes $35 more to arm. him with a
rille with a bayonet on it. and if you
I buy a second $100 bond you furnish
him this rifle and 1.000 cartridges tin
' it; and there will still be enough of
' your money left to purchase a good
' sized bomb to throw in a dugout, or
l demolish a machine gun together with
' the Huns operating it.
