THE GARDEN ISLAND
lnued Every Tuesday

TUESDAY ; ; : ; : : ; : ; : MARCH T, 1922
Another accident happened at Calamity
Corner, at the junction of the Grove Farm,
Lihue and Koloa roads last Saturday' nftcri
noon. A haole aud an oriental had a sort of
head-on . collision. Both earn being flivvers,
the damage was slight. But the possibil'ty
of a real smash-up still remains.
That corner, as it stands at present, is
good for only one institution on this is
land. That institution is the Garden Island,
the paper jou are now reading. A paper
must have news f it is to keep up its circu
lation. That corner has been a tremendous
help to us in the last year or so. but it has
been pretty hard on a bunch of cars. It has
given a 11 of people some badly frayed nerv
es. It almost gave some of them a oneway
ticket to Valhalla.
If some little ridges or slight ditches
were put in each of the three roads a few
yards in front of the .corner, some marvelous
results could be obtained in stopping acci
dents at that junction. Make the ridge or the
ditch just high enough or just deep enough
to toss a man through the top of his car if
he attempted to cross it at 20 miles an hour.
In a short time everybody would approach
that corner slowly. And if they did that, not
one of the present accident in twenty would
FOR YOUR BENEFIT
The attention of the motoring public is
called to the parking lineH that have been
painted in the street at the side of the Li
hue Store. These lines are placed there for
your benefit and protection. Park your cars
between the lines and you will always be able
to get out without trouble.
You will also note that a red and white
triangle has been painted in the center of
the street at the Lihue Store corner. This is
also placed there for your benefit and pro
tection. Always keep to the right of this tri
angle and you will keep out of trouble. Cred
it for this good work is due Messrs. F. Jen
nings, R. F. Middleton, C. A. Baggott and
CRUELTY TO ANIMALS
Cruelty to animals is not only inhuman,
but it shows that the man, woman or child
guilty of it does not appreciate the value of
animals to the human race. Occasionally we
have seen a man kick a dog, or lash a horse,
and we. wondered if he could possibly realize
that even the old, uncivilized races of prehis
toric times had more sense than to do so.
Thousands of dogs, especially trained to
the sound of cannons and the crack of guns,
carried messages, sought out injured and
played a wonderful part in the recent world
war. Ilorses by the thousands pulled up ar
tillery and conveyed food to the troops. Even
the familiar house cat was put to work
catching rats in the trenches. Camels by the
score died hauling heavy guns over rugged
roads and trails and pigeons carried im
portant telegrams from one post to another,
hundreds of them being shot dead or so seri
ously crippled that they had to be killed.
Animals were great friends of mankind
on the battlefields, and we ought not to for
get that they did their bit as best they
could. When we kick a dog to one side or
throw something at a cat or unmercifully
beat a horse, there ought to be within us a
sense of shame that would punish us in like
proportion for being unmerciful to a creature
that ltefriended us at a time when we were
glad to have even the dumb creatures for our
'KEEP IT OUT"
Almost every day we get a request to
"keep it out of the paper." And we want
to say to the people of Kauai that while the
same thing is heard in every newspaper of
fice it . is a great mistake. Full and free
publicity on anything is a help to it. There
is no more effective way of stopping false
rumors and conjectures than to have the
straight, of it printed in the newspapers.
And, on the other hand, nothing makes trou
ble quicker and causes more misunderstand
ing than "keeping it dark." Our experience
Las proved to us that the plain statement
of fact is not only due the public, but it is
the only safe plan. We believe in this policy
so much that we are certain of anything
should happen to us, no matter how disas
trous it might be, the first thing we would
think of would be to see the newspapers got
the straight of it and got it at once. Any
thing but "keeping it out." It's bad enough
for the people to know about it, but to
have them conjecturing and guessing and
surmising is a thousand times worse.
I'M FOR BALDWIN
The managers of Harry Baldwin's cam
paign to land that place as a delegate to
Congress, have adopted a slogan. It is "I'm
We'll adopt that slogan, too. We're for
Baldwin. Certainly! But it is not for any
love that we bear for him per se. It is be
cause we know that he is the right man to
represent Hawaii in Congress at the present
And we don't mean by the above para
graph that we have personally anything against
Mr. Baldwin, or anything for him. This
proposition it isot on a personal basis. It is
on a patriotic basis. We believe that Mr. Bald
win, a 'staunch Republican, can do morn for
Hawaii in a Republican Congress than L. L.
McCandless or any other Democrat could do.
We believe that he knows Hawaii's needs and
that he can present them to Congress in a
convincing, businesslike way. And we believe
that he could get for us as many of the things
Hawaii vitally needs as any Republican we
could send to Washington could get and
more than any Democrat could.
This is a time, when Hawaii is facing
a mighty critical page in her history, when
all parties, or the clear-thinking men and wo
men of all parties, should forget party pre
judice. They should all vote for the man that
cau do most for this territory. There can
be no doubt but that man is Harry A.
A GOOD RESOLUTION
In conversation with a well known local
man a few days ago he told us that he made
but one resolution at the beginning of the
new year, and that was that he would take
more pride in Lihue during the months to
come than he took in the months already
We believe it is the best resolution that
we have heard of. And if all the citizens of
the island would resolve to do the same thing
just think what we would have to point to
a year from now. The greatest trouble with
smaller towns and cities today is that they
contain too many citizens of the "don't care"
type. That is, citizens who are satisfied to
let things take their course. Sooner or later
when things do not go to suit them, they
develop into knockers. And we all know how
quickly a town or community loses the re
spect of everyone once the knockers get to
swinging . their hammers. But in the town
where men aud women do care, where they
"take an interest in seeing that streets and
walks and gutters are kept in repair; that
school buildings and public buildings and
the churches are spik and span, inside and
out there the knocker finds his seed of
discontent being sown on stony ground and
lie quickly moves on to. some other communi
ty, or learns to keep his mouth shut.
It is the easiest thing in the world to
take pride in your home town, and to stop
for a few minutes talk every day with your
neighbors about what more is needed to
make it still better. It doesn't cost anything
to boast of your town's advantages to a stran
ger, or when you are in another community.
All these little things count in the course of
a year, ami especially when we are all doing
it. Boosting the home town gets to be con
tagious, l'retty soon you'll find outsiders
joining in and doing the same thing. The
returns are too great to be estimated. So
that's the reason we believe the resolution
to take more pride in your home town this
year than you did last year is the best one
you could make.
THAT IS OUT

of the fellows we call princes only need a

It's a strange world. Some boys long
to be president and others only long for a
chance to carry water to the circus elephant.
Some fellows contend that prohibition

They say the cost of living is changing
but to us it still costs all that we have.

Not one of the thousands of employers who came to grief
as a result of the dishonesty of employees during the past
year suspected a dishonest streak when the men were hired.
If it had heen suspected they would not have heen hired and
there would have been no necessity for this ad.
Unless your employees are bonded, and bonded all the
lime, you are in constant danger of a loss which may be
large enough to cripple you financially. Would it not be
(he better part of economy to spend a few dollars a year for
bonding your employees than to run Ihe everlasting, nerve
