We loam from Ihe I Imioliilu
pnpoPM that a big iidverl ising cain
jiaign is being launched on the
Mainland with a view to i 11 1 crest
ing llie traveling niblic in Ihese
Islands. To tins end ads will lie
carried in !l!t of tlie lailtv iKipi rs
and in '21 leading magazines of
Ameriea. Tlie estimated cost of
tbe eamiaign is about Sl'UO-OOM.
We trust that Kauai will not be
forgotten on this program.
We have no living volcano; we
have no amazing llaleakala; we
have no "On the Ueach at AVai
kiki ;"' but we have the Oardcn Is
land, the daintiest, prettiest, most
compact, most varied and most
fertile Island of the group.
We have more scenery to tin
sipiare inch, and better roads to
see it by, than any of our neigh
bors and the interim spaces be
tween sights are shorter and less
The beauties of Kauai can he
seen as in a single reel, in a day
a continuous vision of delight
or weeks may be devoted to 1hem
with ever increasing pleasure and
satisfaction. People, have come
for a few days of Meeting visit and
have stayed for years.
It is not for nothing that we
have won and held the title, "The
Garden Island;'' and it has not
been the advertising afterthought
of some wide-awake promotion
committee to beguile people into
coming here; it has been our con
ceded right for half a century or
more; and never, so richly deserved
Our places of interest, natural
and artificial, are both more not
able ami more accessible than eer
before. Kauai was the pearl of
the Pacific when Cook saw it first,
nearly l."0 years ago it is much
more the pearl of the Pacific as
the tourist sees it today.
We cast no stones at Honolulu
or Hilo; we don't berate the Peach
at Waikiki or the Coral Gardens
at Kaueohe; we don't decry llale
akala or Iao Valley or the Dileh
Trail they are allright ; but any
tourist who goes home to any oili
er place on earth without seeing
Kauai, the Garden Island, has
missed the cream of his opportun
ities and made a serious mistake
that he should not fail to remedy
the very next season.
Meanwhile we are wailing for
him with everything in older and
at its best.
U7.7.7; U ; 117,, FALL
No considerable share of any
possible benefit from the campaign
ill adveitising the Islands abroad
is eer likely to accrue to Kauai
until we have belter steamer serv
ice. The tourists may llock to
Honolulu in ever increasing num
bers and liixl their way to Hawaii
and .Maui, but they will turn a
deaf and declining ear to the at
tractions and inducements of
Kauai. "No thank you! J have
heard about that terrible sea trip
in a dinky little steamer; none of
that for me '." And only occasional
ly one of the very hardy uiviiMy
u ill lm.ke the t rip.
We do not wish to make any
invidious criticism of the I liter-Island
as to its eii'ipiiienl. and pas-
sen;:vv sei-v ice: it is a si rid ly bus
iness enterprise' with no philan
thropic weakness that we have
!eon ;die to discover; it will reply
hat tl ere is no pres; nl juslilica
-ion for a b"tler service, and no
money in it. And that being the
ase wo know what we will have
to expect. So long as the Inler
Islaml is run along these canny,
conservative- old fogy lines, we
will lose the tourist, and thev will
lose the trade. We can advertise
until tlie leavens laii. ami we win
get no returns therefrom. Tin
tourist will go to Hilo and Man
and forget t!-at there is any sucl
place as ihe Garden Island.
If we are to get any adequate
share of that wealthy tourist trav
el, we must have a very much bet
tor steamer service.
CHILDREN SUFFER FROM
SHORTAGE OF WATER
Tim public .-ichol nl llonokaii is in
u very unsanitary condition, accord
ins to tbe report of ('liief-SaniUiry In
spector Clifford Charlock. Jinny of tlie
children are suffering from sore
caused by dirt, and tin; shortage of
water has prevented some of them
from bathing for several weeks. The
health oflieials arc endeavoring to cx
terminate all of the many c'ogs of
the district although it is stated that
the shortage of water is the real
cause of the outbreak of sores. Star
