THE BOXUS AXD THE WHY DID WE FALL DOWXt
FUTURE The final proceeds of the Roosc-
The annual plantation bonus i velt Memorial drive for Kauai, so
balance due Oct 3, will be parable reported, are $2,270, which
throughout the Islands from now
on until December.
In order to facilitate the pay
ment of the very large amount
that will be required, Oahu and
Maui will make their payments
this month, and Hawaii end Kauai
The large sums that will come
into the hands of laborers will
more or less upset their equilib
rium, so that their will be a good
deal of shifting about, and a more
or loss unsettled condition ' of
: t'.T some time. Some think
. i- !:.br r. rest, and the vari
:i i, cut demands for higher
.. bi js. running from 2.30 to $.1.00
;r d.iy, portend serious strikes
' d a bitter fight that will be
: l ie or less disastrous to the
c ind other business interests,
!. ile others do not take these
multerings seriously they are
Inutf and bluster, put forth to test
ilie temper of the plantations and
other employers, just as has al
ways has been the case in the
premises. They always talk big
iiml take what they can get.
On the other hand, with any ma
terial advance in the price of sug
ar, such as seems pretty well as
sured, labor will naturally feel en
titled to a very considerable share
of the extra profit and will be
fairly entitled to it and will
probably get it in some shape.
Doubtless a fairly satisfactory
arrangement will be made by
which the large profits will be di
vided between labor and capital,
and things will run along swim
mingly until a fall in prices in
volves a reduction in wages. Then
it will be like drawing eye teeth
to get them down. Then there
will be trouble, and bitterness,
and even strife and may be vio
lence. Beware of that time.
THE GOVERXOR'S VISIT
We beg to commend the direct
personal method by which Gover
nor McCarthy deals with matters
of public interest and welfare in
the difficult parts of the Territory.
He deals with them personally and
on the spot. Prompt and efficient
in the office, he is also promt and
efficient in the field. It would take
reams of letters to secure the in
formation and the grasp of the
situation that a few davs of per
sonal investigation will secure,
and in addition there is that in
stinctive sense of fiitness and ex
pediency which conies only from
feeling the public pulse by person
And when any vital problem
conies up we are glad to see that
he takes a hand, at the source,
and not by way of passing on the
reports, even of those who are ex
perts. And we will be glad to
trust his common sense, as over
against the wisdom of the experts.
Furthermore, we believe he is not
U" ian to allow even the experts
!o ' ut one over on hnn." e be
means that we are short some f 7110
on our quota of ?3,000, or about
25 ner cent.
Thil is a discredit to our Island
which we all ought to regret and
resent a discredit which we be
lieve does not indicate any want
of patriotism or of appreciation
for the splendid qualities and
sterling character of Roosevelt,
but a lack of organization, ana n
failure to adopt and carry through
the business methods that have
been no successful heretofore.
The public have been educated
to these effective methods and have
waited for them. Failing these
they have neglected to give the
money that they meant to and
were ready to.
However, any explanation, even
the best, is a poor substitute for
an over the top accomplishment
ENEMY ALIEN APPLIES
FOR DENTIST LICENSE
"Dr. Herbert Clemmen, dentist, who
last year, was taken from Honolulu to
Port Douglas, Utah, and Interned aa an
enemy alien for the duration of the
war, and who recently returned to
Honolulu, has made application to
Governor Charles J. McCarthy for the
renewal of his license to practice den
tistry. The Governor has referred the
matter to Attorney General Harry
Irwin." News Item.
As an exhibition of gall and
nerve, this takes the plum. Here
is a man who is not only an enemy
alien, but was sent to Fort Doug
las and locked up because he was
found to be too dangerous to be
allowed to run at large, calmly re
turning to his old haunts, expect
ing the public to forget a little
matter like that. The question is :
Will the public forget?
LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
Editor Garden Island Noticing your
article in regard to the contributions
to the Roosevelt Memorial the part
regarding the public schools I think
it would be interesting if you would
print a list of the schools and the
amount contributed by each.
From all reports the schools of the
Island seem to have done more than
their part, but perhaps I have been
Waimea school collected from the
pupils a total sum of $44.70 and has
over 346 members of the Association.
This sum, counting the enrollment of
the school, makes about 10 cents per
Very truly yours,
WILLARD V. HUBERT,
Principal Waimea School,
(This Is quite right. The schools
have done more than their share, and
have done It in spite of misunderstand
ing and adverse conditions. They de
serve a great deal of credit. Ed.)
