In Charles J. McCarthy, Hawaii has had a
cajiablc, fair, level headed governor. ' In Wal
lace R. Farringtoii she will have a worthy
BiiccesNor to him. Many people in many parts
of the Territory, speaking of Governor McCar
thy have said, "He has been our best governor."
And we believe that Governor Farrington will
have as many and as staunch supporters when
his time of service is up.
Governor Farrington is a progressive man.
It lias often been Haid that he is not a "party
man." Perhaps not! The best of parties
make mistakes at times. And it is not a sign
of a big man to be absolutely unable to see mis
takes in one's own party. Nor is it the sign
of a sincere man to refrain entirely from point
ing out those mistakes to a party when they
The Republican Central Committee did not
support Mr. Farrington in his campaign, if it
may be called that, for the governorship. But
the leaders of the Committee are now willing
to back him, to kokua in every way. Governor
Farrington is still on the mainland aud has not
had an opportunity to answer the Committee,
but we know that he will work with them for
the best interests of Hawaii.
Whatever our party, whatever our previous
preference for the governorship, we are now
squarely behind our new governor. We be
lieve that under his guidance the Territory of
Hawaii is going to have an efficient, business
EUEROEXCY TARIFF BILL
Friday is a lucky day for Hawaii. On Fri
day, May 27th, President Harding signed the
Enu rgency Tariff bill which goes into effect at
ouct? and continues for six months. It is ex
pected that by the end of this time a perman
ent tariff bill can be brought before Congress
The part of the Emergency Tariff that ben
efits Hawaii is section 2;?, relating to sugars,
etc. This section reads, "Sugars, tank

of one cent per pound additional, and
fractious of a degree in proportion: molasses

above SO degrees, 7 cents per gallon ; sugar
drninings and sugar sweepings shall be subject

KEEP YOUR EYEU OPEN
We want to warn Kauai people not to grow
into the belief that because we are not at war
dangerous propaganda has ceased. For some
time several correspondents in Washington
have been sending out a lot of stuff destined to
poison the public mind, just as they did before
we we went to war. They're trying iu a veiled
way to create sympathy for Germany, believing
American sentiment can be made to say; "They
are asking too much of Germany." They are
trying to work up a feeliug, too, against Eng
land by having the papers declare: "Ireland is
not getting a square deal." Most editors are
throwing this stuff in the waste basket, but
there is danger of some of them overlooking it.
So be on your guard, and take everything you
read along this line with n grain of salt. The
correspondents are paid to work up sympathy
for a foreign nation. Take no stock in it.
Remember that you're an American, and a good
American keeps his hands off of the affairs of
The Convention of the 'League of Women
Voters, that has been in session in Cleveland,
Ohio, was held for the purpose of formulating
a programme to compel the legislatures of the
several states to recognize the rights of women
and their babes. They demand a restriction
of profiteering and an investigation of the con
ditions under which women work, especially in
the factories. The women are out for fair
play and the justice that should be accorded
them under the intent of the law which gave
them the right of suffrage.

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
Editor, Garden Island.
In the issue of the Garden Island
of May 31 there appear two Items re
garding my connection with the De
partment of Public Instruction. One
states that I asked to be transferred
to another Islend for the next school
year, the other that the Department of
Public Instruction announces that I
shall be transferred to a position in
the Territorial Nofmal School.
TheBe items are both misleading,
and in order to keep history straight
I desire to state through the Garden
Island that I did not ask to be trans
ferred to another island and that I
have not yet accepted any position for
the next school year.
Thanking you for this space, I re
main. Very truly yours,
Principal, Kauai High School.
