BE SURE TO VOTE
Next Saturday, March 25th, is election
day. Ou that day we are going to elect u man,
maybe a woman, to represent Hawaii at
Washington. The position is an important
one. We ninst elect the right man.
The right man is the one that is in a
position to do most for us al the capitol. We
believe that man is Harry A. I'.ahlwin. We
have told, several times, why we think so.
Others, however, may thinU differently.
Unt whatever his or her belief may be, it
is every man ami woman's duty to vote. The
privilege of voting, of electing our own re
presentative and lawmakers is one of out
most sacred tights. If it should be taken
away from us we would raise 1he very skies
in our protestations. Hut, just the same, now
that we have that right, many of us stay at
home on election day and hi the other foil
elect the candidates.
Study this proposition carefully this
week. Take the candidates and sum up their
good and bad points. Consider the training,
education, party affiliation and the possi
bility each has of benefitting us in Washing
Ion, and then go to the polls Saturday and
cast your vote. If you do this, if you really
take the time to think this matter out, Ha
waii will be well represented in Washington.
And we have a hunch that Harry A. Hahl
win will be the representative.
BUY YOUR TICKETS
The Inter-Island has promised to take
Kauai folks around the Kalalau side of the
island April S. providing 125 tickets are sold
lief ore April .. That desn't mean that they
are going if three hundred people promise
to go. The men running this excursion are
business men. They know that one bird in
hand one ticket, sold, y' understan', is bet
ter than a half dozen in the bush or seven
teen unfilled promises to go.
So if you want this excursion to go thru,
buy your ticket now. (Jet it from Mr. Tick
ard at Nawiliwili, or from C. 15. Hofgaard at
Waimea. If enough tickets are not sold and
the excursion has to be called off, your mon
ey will be refunded. If 125 people do not
buy in advance, no one will get to go.
MORE BLOCS COM ISO
Kauai people are hearing a good deal
these days about agricultural "blocs" and
for the benefit of those who may not under
stand the meaning of ''bloc" we might say it
is a term used to designate a combination
of men who are personally interested in see
ing that the rural interests of the United
States get just legislation, and needed legis
lation, and get it where and when it is need
ed. Recently one of these blocs has served the
interest of farmers of the country pretty
well in Kansas, and while it has not succeed
ed to any great extent in having beneficial
legislation passed, it has succeeded in pre
venting the passage of several measures that
do not appear destined to assist rural Am
erica, in the event they ever become laws.
We are going to hear a good deal more
about "blocs'' during our elections this year
and next. They are not going to sweep the
country in the shape of a new born political
party, if indications can 'lie depended upon.
Rut they are going to have sufficient influ
ence" to make the old time politicians sit up
and take notice, and govern their actions ac
cordingly. The men composing these blocs
are among the most substantial citizens in
the country. Their interests in the farmer is
not mercenary. They are honest men, and
their attempt In get farm prices on a better
basis is sincere. That is why we are going
to hear a lot more about the blocs they re
present; that's why the old time politicians
are even now changing the line of talk I hey
have so long been handing out to us..
Do you listen to scandal? Do you en
joy the tearing to pieces of good reputations,
the besmirching of characters, the wrecking
of human lives and human hopes' l you
listen with ears ami mouth open to the poi
sonous words of the scandal monger, and
worst of all, do you peddle that scandal to
your neighbor and your friend? If you do,
have charity. Seek the truth ami take no no
tiee of the vile things you hear until you
verify them, and then be charitable.
In the old fashioned novel they married
on the last page and lived happy ever after;
in the new fashioned novel they live unhappy
until they get a divorce in the last chapter.
Some of our supervisors are getting a'
little suspicious of us. They say "Here you
start a big howl for bumps at the drove
Farm, Lihue, Koloa corner to prevent too
much speed and accidents at the junction.
We listen to you and put them in. Now ev
everybody is jumping on us for putting them
in. They don't like to get pitched thru the
top, of their cars." '
We don't like to get bumped off our
seats either, as we did the first time we
drossed those bumps after their installation.
Since we don't like the skyward toss we are
going over those pesky things slower than
we ever did before. And we are just like
you and everybody else. One or two trials
convince us that speed is not the proper
thing at lhat point.
A little less speed at that junction and
a few humps are infinitely better than a lot
of accidents, accidents lhat may prove fatal
sometimes. So, even if you do feel a trifle
sore at first over the installation of the
"thank-you -moms", think how much good they
may do, how many accidents they may pre
vent. Then tell your supervisor that it is a
good idea. Otherwise he may take them out.
THAT IS OUT
Taken all in all, those; Arbuckle juries,

Every girl should refuse at least one
lover before accepting another. Then she
can spend the rest of her life telling her
husband how happy shee MIGHT have been

We notice in an advertisement in a city

dropped from S cents to (! cents.
We've never yet met a man who didn't

We notice in the press reports where a

The Financial Outlook
The demand, throughout Hie mainland for high grade in
vestment securities, which has developed as a result of the
gradual lowering of interest rates, exhibits no signs of slack
ening. As a result, bond prices are steadily advancing and it
appears that the time is drawing near when the opportunity
to purchase high degree investment securities at prices which
yield liberal returns will have passed not to return, in all
probability, for many years.
It will soon be true that the investor who had foresight to
accumulate conservative investment securities at present pric
es will be in a position to point with pride to tho wisdom
of his judgment.
