Patriotic celebration in the Armory
this afternoon at which the powers of re
joicing will be turned loose. Address by
A. W. Palmer of Honolulu; singing by the
school children; demonstration by every
one. Dance in the evening at the Armory;
an overflow of satisfaction and a wonder of
a good time for everybody.
A special rush meeting of tho Cham
ber of Commerce waa called Monday
afternoon to consider ways and means
of fitly celebrating the news of the
Armistice and termination of tho war,
and a largo and enthusiastic attend
Just as they were getting down to
business a wireless of tho terms of
tho Armistice was handed in which
tho President read amid wild demon
strations of enthusiasm culminating
at tho end in three rousing cheers,
given with a will. Then they settled
back to business, but in a desultory
and preoccupied way, slowly crystal!
zing toward local demonstrations in
each district according to their in
dividual liking. But before this was
definitely decided on, one of tho
members walked across tho room,
picked up the wireless, and was im
mediately bombarded by a storm of
"Read it out, read it out." And tho
second reading seemed even moro
significant and satisfying than tho
firsf, an(1 again led to three rousing
cheers It was finally concluded to
make the various plantation managers
heads of local committees to handle
tho local celebrations, with tho pro
sumption that these celebrations
would bo hold at a few of tho moro
prominent and moro central places.
It was taken for granted that the
schools could bo depended on to as
sist in any celebration, until some
one reported on good authority that
a school holiday was not to bo given.
Thereupon it was determined to send
a wireless to the governor requesting
such a holiday, which was dono by
"Napoleon", the world famous chim
panzee actor, is the rarest of anthra
pold apes. Ho is direct from the
moving picture studios of Los Angeles.
Napoleon and Sally, his mate, are
the only chimpanzees in tho world
appearing in motion pictures. This
1b a chance of a life time to show tho
children a real live chimpanzee.
With him is "Congo", another motion
plcturo actor from darkest Africa. Ho
is a member of the tribe of Wander
bo's, and the only one of his kind
outside of Africa.
STARVING CHIDREN HERE AT

ful applicants for homestead lots of
the 4th series, Kapaa, havo an oppor
tunity of securing some of the lots
which aro now liable to forfeiture.
There aro quite a number of lots upon
which improvements havo not been
made, according to the terms of the
Wo wonder whether somo of those
Honolulu applicants entered into tho
agreement in sincerity, considering
some offered to transfer their lots for
a cash "consideration" within a few
hours of their allotment. These
speculators deserve to forfeit their
payment; thoy havo been tho moans
of depriving several prospective genu
ino homesteaders of taking up and
working tho land, to them can tho
finger be pointed as being "slackers"
for hindering tho productiveness of
tho land. Others havo erected good
homes and havo a large portion of
their area woll under cultivation,
either In pines, cano or corn, etc.
These aro tho people showing tho
right kind of patriotism. May success
reward their efforts.
