WEEK OF XEW NESS I OX
The Waiakea Homesteaders'
League is in a quandary, owing
to tlie opinion expressed "by (Sover-
uor McCarthy that lie considers
the homestead lands under valued
rather than over-valued' savs the
llilo Tribune of Jan. 4th.
"We ciiniuit anlicipatc that any
thing further will be done by the

tary M. de F. Spinola, yesterday.
"All that we can hope for.js that
the Legislature will take action
as soon as the coining session
opens, and that is a slim chance.
The Legislature is open on Feb
ruary 1!) and on the 27th the lots
will be drawn. There is a week,
of course, and in that week much
might happen. All it needs is a
joint resolution to stay action
until the lots can be re-appraised,
or until the matter is thoroughly
'rift; is Absurd: Ninnola
"The members of the Legisla
ture from East Hawaii are cer
tainly in favor of reducing the
price of these lots, and I think
we can count upon the support of
those from West Hawaii, also the
members from Kauai, but Oahu
members may fight against us.
"It is all very well to claim that
these lots are worth !250 or more
an acre, but this land is not sold
outright. What chance has the
poor man to obtain laud, if he has
to pay the full value of the land?
lie hasn't the money to start
witu; he wants to go on the land
to earn it, and with the strings
which are attached to these lots
it is absurd to ask such a price

l'LEXTY OF WILD GAME

Wild game is plentiful at l'uu
Waawaa, Island of Hawaii- ac
cording to II. 1. Mariner, who is
now on a business trip around the
island with II. V. Fatten, says
the. llilo Tribune. They saw a
number of bauds of animals from
their car close to the government
"We saw a number of bands of
wild goats," said Mr. Mariner,
"seven bands of wild sheep, and
any number of bands of wild pigs.
There were four Hocks of wild
turkeys seen, which must have
numbered at least KM) in all."
The game was all sighted in
traveling through Puuwaawaa on
the way to the Keamoku slice)
station. Mr. Mariner and Mr.

REPORTED ISV IllXTER
That Land Commissioner Ber
tram Fivenburgh is in Washing
ton if he is there at till for the
purpose of secuuring a position,
is the opinion prevailing in capi
tol circles, says the Star-Bulletin
of .Ian. Nth. It is known that
Fivenburgh has many intimate
friends among the "big men" in
Washington, and because of this
fact some of his local friends are
inclined to think he will not re
turn to the islands.
Before leaving Honolulu on a
two mouths' furlough without pay
Kiveuburgh made the statement
that if he could secure a position
on the mainland he would not
return to Honolulu, owing to the
ill ell'ect of the local climate on
Mrs. Kiveuburgh 's health. Be
cause of his wife's condition Fiv
enhurgh stated he did not feel
that he could maintain an estab
lishment here and another on the
mainland. He intimated he would
inform his friends definitely by
February 1st whether he would
return or not.
A story to the effect that Kiveu
burgh is after the position of col
lector of customs is held by some
of his friends to be without foun
dation. OTHER 1SLAXDS WILL

Child Welfare for Kauai
The mainland is very widely
waking up to the vital importance
of child welfare. The children of
todav are the men of tomorrow.
If we want sturdy, intelligent, ef
ficient men and women for ihe
future we must take care of the
children now. Hawaii is never
far behind in any forward move-
and so we are beginning to hear
of the plans that are afoot for the
benefit of the children in our
This work is being coordinated
with similar efforts on the main
land under the Council for Nat
ional Defense, ami the local offi
cers and agents for the same are:

the work on the island, and with

The life oT the child gathers al
most exclusively around those two
universal agencies, the home and
ihe school. Whatever is to be doue
for the child must be done
through these agencies; whatever
is to lie done for the child can
most readily be done through
these agencies. Accordingly child
welfare work will be directed
along these two channels.
Home conditions will be stir!
ied. The first fundamental n.oc
for betterment must always be the
realisation of the need. And that
involves the knowledge of present
condhtions. This will reveal the
weakness, or Ihe shortcoming of
the home, and that will suggest
the remedy. It may be over
crowding, bad ventilation, unsani
tary conditions, insullicient nour
ishment, poor cooking, had food,
neglect of children, ignorance of
simple rules of hygiene, etc., etc.
Most of which can be easily be
remedied by a little instruction,
and a little' object -lesson help.

rather than so called charity,
haniled out by the pound, or doled
out by the dollar.
In the school, the saint! policy
will be pursued. An ell'ort will
be made to determine wherein, if
anywhere, the work of the schools
an be supplemented- especially
ilong physical and moral lines.
Do ihe children need more and
'letter facilities for recreation,
day grounds, athletic guidance
and e-piipmcnl ? Do theili eyes
and teeth and throats ami heads
need al tent ion? Are they suffering
from skin diseases, etc.? The find
