surest mid speediest way of securing a satis
factory and lasting peace is to keep our war
activities going to tlie very fullest measure of
eflieiemy. Whenever we begin to relax our
eneniiesVill iiunieiliately take fresh heart, ami
inaugurate some new cll'ort which will serve
to postpone the day of actual peace.
Farthennore. even if a satisfactory peace
were assured and immediate most of the war
activities would still have to go on for months
until all the vast war machine could he dis
mantled, ami the hosts of men transported
hack to their homes and disposed of in other
lines of service or employment. This will take
months, and during this time there will he the
same or even greater need for all kinds of war
work act ivit ies.
The time to let up is not yet ; indeed in
stead of relaxing just now, we should redouble
PHOTIXTISV THE HUUITS OF LAItOll
WE would call attention to an article in
another column in regard to the service
rendered by the Accident Insurance I'oard
under the Workman's Compensation hiw. This
law has been in operation for somewhat over
three years to the eminent satisfaction of both
employer and employe. It is a matter of satis
faction to the employer to know just what his
liability is, and to deal in case of dispute, with
a fair-minded, practical Hoard. And it is a
similar matter of satisfaction to the employe,
often helpless and ignorant, to know that the
Hoard will see that he gets justice.
It is very creditable to the large employers
of labor that they have from the start rendered
a ready and willing compliance with the re
quirements of the law, and have been fair to
the point of generosity in the treatment of
victims of industrial accident. This is' doubt
less good policy in the long run, but it is also
good ethics, and is worthy of all commendation.
X Monday next will commence t lie
drive for funds for the seven ureal war
welfare work organizations recognized by the
tiovernment at Washington. It is hardly
necessary, at this late hour, to recapitulate the
details of the priceless worth of the work of
these societies. The Y.M.C.A.; the Knights of
Columbus; the Y.W.C.A.; and the .Jewish Wel
fare I'oard, have carried out their self-imposed
and merciful tasks with the same unselfish
and loyal devotion that lias characterized the
work of the War Work Community Service;
the American Library Association, mid the
Amid the unspeakable horrors of this war,
now, thank (!od, drawing to its close in the
triumph of.riglit over wrong, these seven orga
nizations have been the one bright spot, and
have succeeded in their mission of carrying
the honie-intluence even into the hell of the
bloody tields of ravaged Europe.
Their ministrations to the lighting men
have been carried on in the face of appalling
dilliciilties : their transport has broken down
time and time again under the stress of the
great military movements, but supplies have
gone forward by man power in every ease in
which motor or other transportation has been
impossible: their slogan has been "carry on"
through thick and thin, and they have never
failed. Their workers are found in every vil
lage behind the lines, and at Hie great points
of debarkation; their huts and (lug-outs dot
the ruined villages close up to llie trenches,
and their brave men work unceasingly in the
front line trenches themselves, not hesitating
to go out into Xo Man's Laud to help and
succor the wounded and helpless.
X'o man with any red blood in his veins:
no man worthy of being called an American
citizen; no man with any love or pity in his
make-up will neglect the opportunity offered
him to help carry on this work by contributing
largely from his means. Money is needed, and
surely money is a paltry gift in comparison
with the sacrifice of those brave boys of ours
who have left their homes, their dear ones, and
their all, and have gone forth to light, and if
needs be, to lay down their precious lives
that we may continue to live in security and
comfort. The opportunity to prove our sin
cerity iind loyalty has come to us in the form
of next week's campaign. Let us be worthy of
the occasion and not only make up the small
quota assigned to us, but go, at least a hundred
percent over it. The Territory has risen to
every call hitherto, and has lent its wealth
freely to the Government. That was no sacri
fice, for it was an investment of idle capital.
NOW we are asked to GIVE, and here again
we are to receive a return for our money, and a
return of infinitely greater value than' the re
turn of our cash plus the dividends: we are
asked to give in order that we may ensure the
return of our heroes to their homes and loved
ones; that the world may be made fit to live in,
and that American ideals and American honor
may be made clear to all the peoples of the
We cannot falter: let us go on, mid give
with thankful hearts to God for" the opportun
ify vouchsafed to us in our day of testing.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Editor, Garden Island Accept my
sincere gratitude for your editorial,
"Lest We Breed Slums," which appear
ed in the last issue of the Garden
Island. If your paper will give this
matter more space, a great deal of
good will be done along health lines
in many of the communities.
At this time when lumber is quite
high, so many of us are forgetting
sanitation, fire laws and the general
progress of our village. So many of
us are here for just a limited time,
until we get enough money to sail for
other lands, and so many of us are
no caring how the town looks ten
year3 from now. We need "live issue"
laws on buildings as written in the
article mentioned above.
Thanking you again,
Editor, Garden Island On your paper
issued on October 2!ith, 1!18 under
the heading of "Not Responsible",
stating that the Kapaa school would
like to have it distinctly understood
that the seedy, unkempt tract opposite
the school grounds is a public park
anil not a school play ground, and
that the school is not in any way re
sponsible for Its neglected condition,
and that if it was once put into shape
the school would endeavor to keep
same in good condition.
The County of Kauai has once plow
ed and cleaned up the , said public
ground and I believe that the said
public ground is again in the same
condition as before the Hoard of Sup
ervisors took action in having it put
in good condition.
Should the Hoard of Supervisors
take it up again it means twice and
not once as sated on the request
Hoping this will make the public
clear that the Supervisor of Kawai
hail or the Hoard of Supervisors of
Kauai are not blamed for such com
plains on the said public ground.

Supervisor for Kawaihau.
LETERS FROM OVER THERE
Dear Dad: Am dropping you a
few lines to let you know that I am
well and hope you are the same. I
received your letter about four days
ago and did not have time to answer
as I just got back from Paris.
Paris la the most beautiful city I
have ever seen. You can see all
kinds of soldiers in uniform. While
I was there I took in all the sights I
could see. I saw the guns that were
captured from the Huns, and airplanes
and all sorts of other things. I saw
the bed that Napoleon the first died
in and his place I went through.
I 'd like to tell you everything we
are doing over here but we are not
allowed to. You asked me to write
a little story of my experiences over
here. We left New York about a year
ago. I am on a patrol boat doing
patrol duty. We went from- New York
to Bermuda and from there we started
across the Atlantic ocean. We were
out nineteen days. We all suffered
hardships. We were wet all the
time and we could not eat off a table
at all. We were short of water and so
we could not take a wash whenever
we wanted to. We were allowed a
half bucket of water a week to wash
ourselves and our clothes.
When wo arrived at the Assore is
lands we had a good time. We stayed
there about two months doing patrol
duty, such as answering S.O.S. calls
from ships that were torpedoed. We
were in a ninety mile gale off Horta.
tayal, once and we did have a hard
time of it then.
When we left the Azore Islands we
went to Port Lixoes, Portugal, where
we stayed a few days and got supplies.
Then we sailed for France. We arriv
ed at our base on the 2lst of
We have all kinds of excitement
over here. I have seen a few ships
while we were with them.
We rescued a few survivors ot the
It is starling to got rough now and
I think we are going to have a hard
time of it tirs winter fighting the
submarines and looking after the
cargo ships so that the boys at the
front will have enough to eat.
I think this war will he over nevt
year, as the Americans are driving
the Huns back and giving them a good
beating. The French people think a
whole lot of the Americans over here.
Our oMicers treat us hoys tine and they
give us all the liberty they c:m so we
can go ashore to see the movies
at the Y. M. V. A. Hut.
We are out ut sea now and have
orders to stand by as there was a
ship just got sunk not far from where
we are now. I like to see some fun.
as we hoys over here call it, so we
can sink u few submarines.

we should, either as

to start to save and
that time is NOW.

I hope all the boys at home will do
their share in this war for freedom
and liberty. I would like to tell von
what the Germans did to the poor
Belgian people and all of the women
and children in France that thev
captured as I have seen a few boys
that were adopted by the regiments
of American soldiers. I think I will
close my letter now with Aloha Nul
to all. Tell sister to write to me.
