Give Them Good Lands
There was a pretty general concen
sus of opinion, voiced by Cheatham,
Sahr, Horner and others, that the
lands given to the Hawaiians should
be . good lands, not the second and
third class lands which it was pro
posed to give them. They would have
trouble enough making a success of
the good lands, the poor lands would
be a mill stone round their necks.
Several halting resolutions were
suggested dealing with the matters
involved but failing to meet with
general favor they got no favor, the
feeling being that the whole matter
was not sufficiently familar to war
, Rehabilitation by Education
J Mr. McClusky called to the fact that
this rehabilitation scheme would in
; volve large expenditures of money
i r.nd many officials, some of them com
' manding largo salaries, and the crea-
deal of light on the whole matter, and
gave tangible matter for discussion
and action, but also made it evident
that careful consideration would be
necessary, which would take more time
than was thetavailable.
C. A. Rice then moved that a special
evening session of the Chamber be
held to consider the matter carefully
and to take such further action as was
then deemed advisable. This was car
ried end Saturday evening of May 8th,
was set for that purpose.
In order that the members should
be as well posted as possible, the secre
tary was authorized to have printed
copies of the synopsis of the proposed
Bill Btruck off and distributed to the
members. It was also suggested that
intelligent Hawaiians be Invited to at
tend this meeting that the Chamber
might have the advantage of their at
titude toward the measure.

Lost at Sea
Some considerable time ago, a
Kukuiula fisherman, one Sogoro
Wada. went to Honolulu by sampan
to see his wife, who was ill there.
Returning, he set out alone in the
sampan, u gasoline power boat of
comparatively small size, his compan
ion remaining behind In town. Noth
ing has been seen or heard of Sogoro
After a week or. so his friends at
Kukuiula became anxious about him
r.nd various sampan expeditions were
mado to find him, but thus far, in
vain. Even under the best of cir
cumstances it was like looking for
the traditional needle in the hay
stack, and as the days have run Into
weeks it is a foregone conclusion
that he has met with some disaster,
or been hopelessly lost.

also involve the breaking In of adults
to a new condition of things, and a j

were not prepared, which, like the I

Various motions were proposed. That

we petition Congress to hold up any

P. H. Rice said that apparently a-'

by number. The American Legion

furnished with an outline of it which '

use non-skids on rear wheels and smooth-treads or
"driving" tires on front wheels.
This is necessary because the
sharp projections on some non
skids make steering difficult.

versal. Its tread is so broad
and flat, it steers as easily as
a smooth tread.
Use Michelin Universals all
around. You will thus secure "
protection against the, danger

against the rear skid; and -at
the same time you will avoid
i the necessity of carrying two
kinds of spares.
Remember that Michelins are
unsurpassed for durability
though moderate in price.
