THE WOMAN'S LEAGUE OUTDONE
A prominent Honolulu man, who
was on Kauai a few days ago, report
ed that the servant problem inHono
lulu was rapidly growing no better,
His wife Is one ot the directors of the
Woman's League, and they had finally
become convinced that It was time to

Irwin In an opinion to the public
lands committee of the house, accord
