One of Hie first pre-rcquisits for an elicit
ive enforcement of law is a definite and em
phatic public sentiment. As long as (lie public,
specially t he intelligent and inlluential public,
boMs back or lies down in the traces, 1 lie en
forcement of law, in a country like ours, is
weak and inellicient.
This is particularly true of the Prohibition
issue. So long as the reputable public stands
by with indifference, or covertly pats the law
breaker on the back and bids him "go to it," be
cause they, themselves like a little of his pro
duct at limes there is no solid ground from
which to enforce the law.
It is notorious that a law is a dead letter
which is not backed up by a virile, aggressive
public sentiment. The men who want booze,
even in the "respectable" dress-suit form of
cocktails and mint julips; tin; men whose sym
pathies, if not their appetites, go out to the
moonshiner they are not going to do anything
to enforce the law, and they are not going 1o
hold up the hands of the authorities who are
trying to do so.
(Srauted that the responsibility does not
rest solely, nor even primarily, with public
opinion to enforce the law, it does finally settle
back there. Ami in the present issue of Prohi
bition, we will never get any very effective en
forcement of the law until there is a rising tide
of public opinion that demands it. And this
means that there is a burden of responsibility
resting upon us all every rial American, every
lnjial citizen, every man who believes in law
and order, every man of character and integrity
we must rally to the defense of this consti
tutional law, and make it most emphatically
evident that we want the law enforced.
LEAVE IT THERE !
W ho "has it in'' for Nawiliwili? And why
this backward step 1o take her light away from
her and leave her in darkness?
That light was put there years ago, after
careful consideration, by intelligent men who
presumably knew what they were about. It
was put there because it was needed. And now,
when the traffic is probably twice what it was
then, and the dangers of midnight disembark
ation are increased in proportion, the need for
that light is greater than ever.
In behalf of Nawiliwili and the travelling
public of all Kauai, and thb other Islands as
well, we protest agaiust the loss of that light.
THE RED BLOOD OF BU8IXES8
Newspaper advertising is the red blood of
business. It is the power that puts the mer
chants goods into the homes of the people. It
is a necessity in modern business methods.
Advertising revives a sluggish business and
puis new life into the atmosphere. The news
paper is acknowledged by all good business
men to be the most profitable medium in which
to advertise, for it goes into the homes of the
people you want to reach your home people
people who know you, and who know when they
read your advertisements in their home paper
that you are talking facts, and that you are on
the premises to back up and make good every
statement. They know you mean what you
say, and you also know that they are governed
in their purchases by the statements you make.
The "(iardeu Island" goes into the homes
of practically every family in your locality,
and you know that every adult member of the
family is eager to read the local newspaper.
In your home paper you can say whatever
you wish, as much as you may desire, and when
eer you want to tell the people of your commu
nity that you have something, fresh from the
market, that will fill their wants or satisfy
Your home paper is your partner in busi
ness. It works for you when you are sleeping
and keeps you busy when you are awake. It
is the medium through which you can have a
heart-to-heart talk with the people of your com
munity and keep them informed regarding the
commercial progress of the world, so far as it
interests them and you.
You may think that long residence in Ihe
community and your reputation for the square
deal is sufficient; but the fact that you are an
old resident and are well known is all in
your favor as an advertiser; for the people who
know you and admire your stilling qualities,
will believe every word you say in your adver
tisements, and when you announce the arrival
of new goods, or that you have such and such
things to sell, it puts them in mind of the fact
that they need or soon will need the very ar
ticles which you are offering, and they will go
to you because you have advertised the thing
The bet Mr and more favorably a business
man is known in his community the greater
the value of ndwrtising to him; for his an
nouncements are back"d up by his good reputa
tion. The columns of ihe "(iardeu Island" are
yours for the price. Let no out-of-town adver
tiser draw away from you the business that is
yours for the asking, and which will be yours
if you keep Ihe people of your community post
ed in regard to what you have to sell.
ALLIES SHOULD PAY
During the past year or more nuilierous
feelers have been thrown out with a view of
ascertaining American sentiment in regard to
the cancellation of allied debts, which amount
to the enormous sum of $10.01)0.1)00 in loans
made to life -allied nations during the war.
England has made such a proposition to the
1'nited States, which is the greatest creditor
and occupies the position of being the only one
of the alies that will receive no indemnity from
(Jermany, while England, France and all others
will receive a share of the spoils, and in this
case England's share will offset her loans and
If England or any other nation desires to
cancel these obligations it should be their pri
vilege; but Ihe Fniled States will be playing
the most senseless game of modern financiering
if she accepts such a proposition. America
stands o be the loser, whatever she does. She
has loaned the people's money to the allies with
out regard to payment, and she went into the
war with a big flourish and a most prodigal
display of philanthropy and now the debtor
nations, who will receive indemnities would
cancel and reieive from Germany enough to
pay their loans, ami more, while Ihe United
States would be out. all out.
It does not seem that we have men at the
head of our national affairs who would enter
tain sit' li ;l proposition ; yet. judging from past
experience, we have little to hope for in the way
of good business acumen in the conduct of our
national affairs. If (Jermany can pay S:!0,fl(lll,
000,000 to the allies they ought certainly be
able to pay Ihe 10.000.000 they owe the Unifed
Stales, and if rood judgment prevails they will
do it too.
The United Stales government is after the
fraudulent oil promoters, and has started a
campaign of prosecutions that will land a lot
of them behind closed doors, and where they
will not need to worry about the rent of the
apartment. Investigations have been going
on for five months, and now the harvest will
be gathered and disposed of as (he merits of
the cases may require. The list is long, and as
these profiteers have been using the United
States mails for the prosecution or their frau
dulent schemes, they are really in bad. One
company is known to have sold n2(),IIIIII.(iuo ,,r
its worthless paper, ll did not own a pint oT
oil or a fool of land, yet the people poured their
good money into the coffers of the swindlers
wthout stint, expecting big returns upon some
thing the value of which they did not lake the
trouble lo investigate. Slocks have been sold
right and left in colorations that did not exist.
One gusher was claimed , 1. producing M
barrels of oil u day. ;m,i investigation proved
that the well did not exist.
Socialism, so far as it has progressed
Jiiissia, is a dismal failure. There is no indica
lon that the liussi.m people are reveling in
riches or laughing w ith the joy of living. Rus
sia once liad grain lo export, wool to manu
faclure clothing, and the cotton fields of

1 see In the "Harbor Notes" of the j
Honolulu Star-liullelin of July Sth that
about Sept. 1st the Nawiliwili 1G0 j
candle power w hite light Is to be
moved to Makahucna Point (which is
the most southerly point oC the Island)
.ind the 50 candle-power fixed red light,
which Is situated at that point is to
be moved to Naw iliwili. This is a long
step backward-it the red light on the1
Makahiunn Point Is not Rood enough
for that place It is very much less I
suitable for Nawiliwili where most of
the pasengers for Kauai are landed in
the niglit. 1 do not blame the powers'
who are working for the interests of;
Port Allen for trying to get u better i
light. I thing there should lie a good 1
light on the south point, but I do
ilame them for being willing to do so
it the expense of the safety of the tra-
veliuf pudfile of Kauai.

I'.'itnr The Harden Island Sir: In
closing oar work for the year, we w ish I
to thank the kind people who have j
helped to make the work in this little ,
school so much better than ever be
Firiit of all, the teachers and com-!
inanity are more than grateful for the
complete kitchen outfit w hich was
given to the school by Ill's. Senni.
Coming as it did just after the flu
wave, when the children greatly need
ed exra nourishment, the gift helped !
the child's weak struggle for better
health. Not only was this gift a kit-''
chen set complete in every detail, but
food (cream crackers, chocolates.!
cream, malt, sugar and a whole ease
of kerosene oil w ith the lovely now j
stove) was sent along with it which
lusted many weeks and did wonders
for the underfed children. These un
derfed pupils were given a daily lunch
and after the donated supply was ex
hausted, the board of health furnished
the same each mouth. This gift will
never be forgotten by the school and
mothers who learned a great deal
This community has made very
very rapid progress in home and per
sonal sanitation thru the help of Miss
Geyer, the district nurse. The good
work was started last year by Miss
Pepper and continued by Miss Geyer
so thoroughly that a marked change
is noted in ihe child at school and in
his home surroundings.
For months we have appealed to the
fathers of the village to take charge of
an evening club for the. boys out of
school. Picture twenty-live boys with
nothing to do every evening and no
place to gu. W'.) are at last, success
ful in geting one father to take up this
work. We thank Mr. Geo. Ewaliko
for keeping the boys and training them
every evening in army and Scout work.
The school has made a noted ad
vance in athletics' and we wish to
thank the teachers and people of the
village for attending: to the financial
part. The second volley hall was giv
en to the school by the whole village
and is now us.eil by old and young.
Thanking you for your valuable

REV. L. G. DAVIS PREACHES
AT LIHUE UNION CHURCH
Silva's Toggery, Honolulu.
At the present pi ice of c.-ililiac one would
scarcely expect to purchase a ci-ar for a nickel.
The liev. Lloyd G. Davis, of the
Honolulu li i b 1 e Training School,
preached most acceptably to the con
gregation of Lihue I'nion church last
Sunday, taki'ic: f.-r his text "The com
mon people heard him prailly." The
preacher brought out the distinction
between 1 he self-constituted aristoc

all social stations. "Jesus, the Master
Teacher, understands sympathetically
all men: the open minded of all ages
receive! Him gladly."
Mrs. Win. II. Kice. Jr. and Rev. Bay
lei. s sang a sopi-'no arid tenor duet eu
titled "Hock of Ages." The church
