THE KAPAIA ROAD
TW Wednesday. H. D. Sloggett, president
of the Kauai Automobile Club, asked the-
RnntM nf Supervisors to cive some attention
to the daneerous Kapaia hill. Mr. Sloggett
iminte.1 out the fact that tlio hill is in a dan
gerous condition for autoists, when the road
l wet and slippery and that the fence is
almost gone, so that a car could easily go
to the bottom of the gulch should it start
The work on the fence has already start-
p1. While the structure probably would not
stop n heavy car if it should crash headlong
into it, it would detain a car skidding to tne
side and might prevent a serious accident.
The repairs are well worth while.
While the good work is going on, it might
be well to consider some means of corrugat
ing the road so that skidding would be al
most impossible. This kind of work is be
ing done on the mainland and it is just as
WILCOX MEMORIAL LIBRARY
Last Saturday's mail contained several let
ters from grateful Kauai people, to Mrs. A. .
Wilcox, of Honolulu. Mrs. Wilcox has an
nounced that she will give a fine, new pub
lic library to the Garden Island as a memor
ial to her husband, Albert S. Wilcox.
It would be very hard, indeed, for Mrs.
Wilcox to select a more suitable memorial
than an appropriate library building. This
library will be open to all people of the is
land. Every paper, every book loaned, will
be a silent tribute to his memory.
BEING AX EDITOR
Most any man can be an editor. All
the editor has to do is sit at a desk six days
in the week, four weeks in a month, and
twelve months in the year and edit such
stuff as this:
"Mrs. Jones of Maua let a con-opener slip
last week and cut herself in the pantry. A
mischievous lad of Waimea threw a stone and
cut Mr. Pike in the alley last Tuesday. Joe
Doe climbed on the roof of his house last
week looking for a leak, and fell, striking
himself on the back porch. While Harold
Green was escorting Miss Violet Wise from
the church social last Saturday night a sav
age dog attacked them and bit Mr. Green on
the public square. M. Suzuke, of Hanapepe
was playing with a cat Friday when it
scratched him on the veranda.
Since the world war royal weddings have
lost much of their magnificence. In fact they
are not as common as formerly, and the time
is not far distant when they will have no
place in a civilized nation. Royalty has had
its day. It is now in the afternoon of its
dazzling brilliancy. Its sun is well night set,
and another generation will see it in the dis
card forever. The past decade has been a hard
one for royalty. All over the old world
thrones have tottered and fallen, dynasties
have come to an end, and the people, their
necks freed from the yoke of autocratic sur
veillance, have taken upon themsleves the
duties of free citizenship. Crowns are now
junk of curios, titles of little consequence,
und manhood, character and education have
become the standards of measurement in de
termining the value of a citizen to the com
munity. The titled drones must go to work
as tlher men do, aud by the excellence of
vi r achievements they v, i:l be known and
vu; by the escutcheon of hereditary titles.
A discovery of gold near Denver created
a craze that equalled the old time
rush for a new eldorado. In less than 21
hours the newly discovered gold field was
staked. Samples of the gold, running as big
as 1 1,300 to the ton, have raised the excite
ment to rever heat .Between the unpreceden
ted flow of the oil wells and the new gold
discoveries, the western country is receiving
an amount of advertising that bids fair to
put some new cities on the map for the next
AMERICA SHOULD COLLECT
Senator Borah went to the point when
he said in a recent speech that the allies
should provide for the payment of the inter
est on the debt of some !f 11,000,000 which
they owe the United States. Withholding
this interest, to say nothing of the principal
is a rank injustice. The allies owe money
to the United States, and they owe the inter
est as part of the obligation, and it is nothing
more than right that they should pay prompt
ly and in full.
The military establishments of Europe
are eating too large a hole in the resources
of those countries, and it is not in the line
of justice to ask the American people to
maintain thoes establishments, and that is
just what we are doing by iermitting the
allies to withhold payment of their just obli
gations to this country.
The majority of the allied nations are in
favor of forcing Germany to pay in accord
ance with the terms of the treaty obligations
and if it is right for Germany to pay what is
demanded of her it is right for the allies
to pay what they owe to the United States,
and especially .so, for the reason that it was
American money and American flesh aud
blood that saved Europe from a terrible fate.
America, of all nations, should receive
due consideration, and the rights, the sacri
fices and the philanthropy of the American
tax payers and the American sympthizers
with Europe's afflictions should receive at
least thoughtful consideration of what
should be an appreciative people, for not only
we've loaned Europe money but we have sent
her valuable contributions in money, mer
chandise, medicine, food and clothing, and
further more, we have sent them thousands
of nurses to minister to suffering humanity.
So far, the American people have been
ignored, and instead of showing due appre
ciation for American aid, Europe maintains
her expensive standing armies and pays no
heed to America's needs or her just dues.
Men clothed in uniforms and bearing
arms are not producers. They are leeches in
times of peace, burdens upon the state, ob
structions in the way of industrial progress
and demoralizing to the economic adminis
tration of government. They are not such of
their own volition, however, for they are in
the military service because of the curse of
conscription that takes men unwillingly from
productive labor to become burdens upon
their fellow men;
Europe can pay her interest and her
principal just as easily as Germany can pay
the indemnities that have been assessed a-
gainst her, and should be made to pay with
just Mich measures as are being applied to
Germany to force payment when payments
When the nations, that are struggling
under excessive burdens of debt throw off
thwir military burdens and go to work they
will find it easy to pay their debts; but
just so long as they continue their suicidal
policy they will have trouble and to spare.
Exchange will be against them, industrial
ism will avail them little, as they conduct it;
for the strength of their young manhood will
not be productive but burdensome.
Compel Europe to pay and she will find
ncans of doing so, even if it becomes neces
sary to abandon militarism in order to re
cover from the depths of financial misfor
tune, and put to productive labor the strength
she is now wasting in needless military and
East Weymouth, Mass., is no place for
a nervous man. It has been discovered that
fully 25 per cent of the population of that
town are addicted to at least one musical
instrument. The disease has been diagnosed
as "Musicalitis." Bands, orchestras and in
dividuals combine to make the old town a
dream-land of harmony.

Try a Definite Plan
Most of the people of the United States plan to accumu
late money and many actually try. A fairly large number
succeed. The majority fail.
With the exception of those who have met unfortunate
circumstances, those who do not accumulate money usually
fail because they have not adopted a definite plan of building
up financial independence.
If you are one of those who have not yet started on the
road to financial ease, would it not be well to try definite
plan and stick to it?

Radical socialists who were sent to Rus
sia soon recover from their dementia and
long to return, converted to Americanism. It
is best however, that they remain long enough
for a thorough convalstence, and yet a few
years to impress upon their minds the dan
ger of yielding too readily to the germs of a
disease that will unfit them for the associ
ation with the mentally healthy citizens of
the United States. Some have been sent
away as incurables, and those pitiful cases
of mental and moral degeneracy should nev
er again be permitted to set foot upon the
soil of free America.
Dancing Masters' Association and the
Federation of Women's Clubs have declared
war upon jazz. It is about time for such
action, and it is now hoped that we may soon
have some real music, something that is har
monious, pleasing, restful to the nerves. Jazz
has no place outside of the bugg-house.
