BETTER .SERVICE WASTED
Tin overcrowded condition of
the Kinau these days, and the con
sequent dilncuitv of securing and
kind of accommodation, and the
discomforts of what you do secure,
emphasize afresh and with in
creasing force the need for a larger
steamer. It is no longer a matter
of an occasional crowded trip an
emergency that you can put up

if you don't like it you can stay
Frank l. Mi-Lain, Financii
Editor of the Philadelphia Press
published the following editorial
expression in the "Press' lues
day. May IS:
"Ituyiiuf Liberties for KvrpH"
'The whole list of Liberty bonds
may now be bought upon the same
principle that investment was
made in a small way in War Sav
ings Stamps. The stamps were
bought below par w ith a view of
having them paid at par at matur
ity. So now the Liberty bonds
may be bought far below par ami
if they are held to maturity the
holder will get one hundred cents
on the dollar. Take the Fourth
Liberty 41 js which are selling be
low S4. An investment of say
SS40 now will in PC'S bring a pay
ment of $1,000 and in addition
the bonds will pay annually $12. ."0
as interest, and if this interest is
deposiled when the coupons nrC
clipped so that it will be com ;
pounded there will be another j

the Liberty bond matures. Some
parents are making an investment i
of this kind for very young chil i
dren so that by the tune they
reach the age of twenty-one years!
they will have S-J.ooi)' of capital!
available which grew out of an
investment of SSI0 by the parents.
If the heads of 2.000,000 families
in the United States would adopt
this course the question of the
public absorbing the funded debt
would be solved."
One man. at least, was impress

safe to argue that thousands of
persons wiio reaii H were likewise
benefited. Ths man took the
trouble to write McLain as fol

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
Editor Garden Island:
Of course the people will expect you
to give them "full particulars" con
cerning the nominations, and of course
they will be disappointed by the little
you will be able to give or say so I
propose to help you by suggesting
"the nominations were the best and
and are the strongest that could pos
sibly be made," notwithstanding your
Honolulu rival was favorable, If not
pledged to the California mountebank.
The Senator from Ohio, and the
Governor of Massachusetts are not
men to be advertises in every "Who's
Who"; but I am able to help you give
publicity to an act of Governor
Coolidge that, in my opinion, entitles
him to our highest respect and re
gard, and shows him to be more than
worthy of the high office to which he
will be elected.
And as I had honor of being born
In the State of Ohioo I am ready to
pledge its honored Senator, Warren
G. Harding, to the best welfare of Ha
waii, so long as he remains president,
and sha remains true to her proper
rights, and in her proper place as a
Territory of the United States.
Despite the fact that the 2.75 beer
bill passed by the Massachusetts Sen
ate 2C to 6 and the House 145 to 31,
Governor Coolidge promptly vetoed
It, uttering these words of wisdom:
There is little satisfaction in at
tempting to deceive ourselves. There
is grave danger in attempting to de
ceive the people. If this act were
placed on the statute books of this
common wealth today it would provide
no beer for the people. No one would
dare act upon it. or if any one did he
would certainly bo charged with
crime. Similar laws in other States
are to dale ineffective. T am opposed
to the practice of a legislative decep
tion. It is better to proceed with
candor. Wait until the Supreme Court
of the United States talks.
Wo have had too much legislation
by clamor, by tumult, by pressure.
Representative government ceases
when outside influence of any kind is
substituted for the judgment of the
representative. This does not mean
that the opinion of constituents is to
be ignored. It is to be weighed most
carefully, for the representative must
represent, but his oath provides that
it must bo "faithfully and- impartially,
according to the best of bis abilities
and understanding, agreeably to the
rules and regulations of the Constitu
tion and laws."
The authority of the law is ques
tioned in these days all too much. The
binding obligation of obedience against
personal desire is denied in many
quarters. If these doctrines prevail
all organized government, all liberty,
all security are at an end.
