WHAT TO RKK OX KAUAI
Tin1 Los Angeles ("handier of Commerce
has written to the Kauai Chamber of Com
merce, asking about landing f:'.iililies on Ka
uai, what there is to see, etc. ,
It will le necessary for tlie Kauai Chant
ber to juiswer inquiries in about tliis man
"Dear T.os Angolans:
'The landing facilities on Kauai at pres
ent a v rotten. It really is too bad tliat your
trip isn't coining in I'.rjo or llfli instead of
tliis year, as far as landings ere concerned.
We are now building a breakwater at Xu
wiliwili. As soon as 1 lie breakwater is finish
ed, ami by tho way tlie work is progressing
rapidly on it at present, and we have a .dele
gate to Congress that has pledged himself
to io all he can to. boost tie proposition
along as fast as possible, the piers ami
wharves will be built. Then it will be pos
sible for any big boat to come right up to
our docks and you can land in comfort.
lust now, you will have to get off your
big boat into a little row boat and be towed
to the wharf. If the weather is smooth you
will be alright. If it is rough, and we 'sorta'
hope it will be, you will go back to Califor
nia, and instruct your Congressmen to do all
they can to make Kauai's appropriation for
wharves as large and as speedy an possible.
"Hut you also asked about scenery. That
is where we excell. Kauai is called the (Jar
den Island, not because it is so small but
because it is a veritable garden in the luxuri
ousuess of its vegetation and its crops.
"We have a couple of canyons that are
second only to the (fraud Canyon. Our can
yons are not quite as large as the (Jrand Can
yon but they are move colorful and they are
worth seeing. We have a Hanalei valley that
we can't adequately describe. You will have
to see it, that's all. You might read our de
scription sometime sifter you have seen the
valley and then our literary powers would
rat far below par with yours.
"When you have seen our scenery, you
will readily understand why we hesitate to
trv to describe it."
IJIYI'T TO Ml l'RKll
(J resit Kritain has at hist decided to give
Egypt virttiiilly oniplete autonomy in her in
ternal siffsiirs. but otherwise, the Egypt isms
Avill be left to work out their own salvation.
The conditions under which Egypt, is given
iiutononiy included the protection of Uritish
investments in that country, cortsiin con
cessions regarding the Suez Csiual, and a
control over foreign relations that will safe
guard British inierests. Thus, wiile Egypt
is to be practically free, there will be a string
to the sigreenient, which practicsilly amounts
to si proleclorsite.
Egypt has si history that goes hsicfc into
the misls of antiquity and is lost in mytholo
gy and tradtion. The first recorded dynasty
dales back to ."( t J?. ('.. and sillowing that
civilization had so far sidvsiuccd sit that
time that the people had organized forms of
goyi-nnicnt and were sible to work-on stone
sirnl metals, build cities and monuments
that have not been obliterated to the present
day, tells us that there must have been a re
ins: .kable degree of intelligence in Egypt
ins.ny thousands of yesirs before thsit era;
for msuiy yesirs hsive elapsed before prehis
toric man was so far advsinced in the arts
ami sciences sis to build or construct from
stone the nisignificent monuments thsit sire
the wonder of modern scientists.
Pestilence. Wiir sirnl conquest hsive creat
ed such havoc in the life ami destiny of
Egypt thsit the high civilizations of the psist
hsive gone from ilie fact of the earth, ami
the Egyptian of today is a much inferior be
ing to those who made Egypt great, not onlv
a military power, but wonderful in architec
ture and psiiutiug. Egypt w;is a hind of re
source. the center of lejirning for sill ihe
world sis wsis then known. Her richness was
her undoing, for during the succeeding cen
turies other great powers si rose to over
he!':i her, and conquest sifter conquest
changed the chsirsicter of her entire people.
She has been divided into small principal;
ties, ami she lists been united sind her power
extended over vast areas. .Many tuitions hsive
paid obeisance to her king; yet today she is
but a remnant of her former self, emerging
from the bonds of centuries of bondage.
Egypt is again on si road to si future.
What will i be? There is little pioliability
thsil she will ever rise to the importance of
hev ancient glory; but that she is practically
free to govern herself is a worthy sot on the
part of ileal J'.ritain.
The territorial affairs committee of the
Chamber of Commerce of Honolulu has
pledged itself to an exhaustive study and
analysis of the tax question in relation 'to
this territory. It realizes the enormity as
well as the importance of such a subject and
for that "reason is asking the. co-operation of
the chambers of commerce of the other in
lands, suggesting that perhaps the various
chamber committees handling such matters
could make recommendations to the Honolu
lu committee as to any particular changes in
the present scheme of taxation which might
be desired by their county or for the good
of the entire territory.
When a group of resil business men Nit
down to carefully study ami analyze the tax
proposition as these men are planning to do,
they sire pretty mire to arrive at some import
ant conclusions. And their idesis will un
doubtedly be listened to with respect by the
There are undoubtedly some inequalities
in Hawaii's taxes that can and should be ad
justed. More j ower to this committee. As
George Ade was wont to say, "May they all
live long and prosper."
THAT IS OUT
If they cut the standing army too much

The bonus seems to strike some of our
statesmen as just the thing, if some way can
be arranged for not paying it.

No little boy ever got his picture in the
Hall of Eame for saying: "Mother, I'm sick;
please give me a dose of castor oil."
Pretty soon, now we'll hear the story
which starts: "I had him to the top of the
water and he must have weighed ten. pounds
Something also tolfs us that if there was
as much honesty in the world as there should
be pes.ee t resit ies would be unknown.
It sort of tsikes siway the sting to receive
a bill printed on good paper in a neat and
attractive way. Ami it might not be amiss to
