COUS TY WORK AND, ALIEX LABOR
Keports are being circulated that the
reason one contractor on Kanai has been
able to secure most of the contracts that
have been let by the supervisors recently, is
that he has been employing alien laborers
and paying them considerably less, than the
standard wage that is demanded by citizen
artisans and laborers.
If this condition is true, it should be
corrected at once, for it certainly is not fair
to contractors who use citizen labor, and
who pay standard wages, or to our citizen
labor and at the same time is not in keeping
with the law.

The report of the census bureau reveals
some interesting fads concerning the life
of man. It shows us that the average has
been increased and that it will undoubtedly
continue to increase as people live closer to
hygienic rules. It reveals the fact that men
and women are living to an older average, but
that the span of life has not increased.
This conclusion may be surprising to
many, but it is based upon the statistics
gathered from the last three censuses. The
most of us have taken it for granted that
the span of life was lengthening and that
the man of the future would have a longer
lease of life than those of the past, and
while that may be the result of modern sani
tary living it has not made a perceptible dif
ference in the age allotted to man. Individu
als are living' longer. That is: more men
and women are Hearing the age limit; but
the limit has remained stationery. It shows
that the race is improving physically and
that while more will approach the limit and
that many, as heretofore, will exceed it by
many years, that the design of the t'reator
was not or is not that mankind shall live to
a greater age, 'such as the scriptures tell
us was lived by some great progenitors of the
children of Israel. The grand terminus stands
where it has stood for many thousand years,
at "three score years and ten."
If the life of man is to be extended and
a greater age limit fixed it will be necessary
to reduce human existence to the scientific
principle of "the survival of the fittest," for
if by increasing the average of life the world
becomes more crowded there will be a ne
cessity of reducing the population to save
the lives of the races; for if the world should
be populated beyond its ability to feed, reduc
tion will be an absolute necessity.
The time is coming when the question of
population will be a serious one; when only
the most perfect will be permitted to live,
and this, hard and cruel as it may seem, in
the interest of the whole. There will be no
escaping of this problem. Wars and pestilence
may check the increase, but based upon the
statistics of the world's increase the time
is not so very far distant when it will be
come necessary to scientifically cull or per

Huge sums of money have been appro
priated by the government for use in the
promotion of extension and vocational edu
cation. Another bill is before Congress the
Towner Sterling bill which proposes other
appropriations for Americanization, for re
moval of illiteracy and other educational
Hawaii is not included in these appro
priations in spite of the fact that this terri
tory pays more in taxes, from which these
appropriations are drawn, than several of
Whether this was an intentional over
sight or not is not known, but the fact re
mains that Hawaii will not benefit by these
appropriations unless the local members of
the National Education Association, now in
session in Boston, can wield enough influ
ence to have t lie bill changed.
The Hawaii delegates, of which Miss
Elsie Wilcox is the Kauai member, is work
ing hard on this matter ami have presented
Hit; following resolution to the convention:
Whereas, the Territory of Hawaii is and for
nearly twenty-five years lias been an integral politic
al, economic and industrial part of the United
States of America, and
Whereas, the people of Hawaii for many years
have been grappling with problems of education
which are unique owing to the distance of Ha
waii from continental United States, and to its
relatively large proportion of residents of origins
not distinctly American and to its peculiarities
of industrial organization due to reasons of cli
mate, soil and local history, and
Whereas, Hawaii contributes to the general
revenues of the United States, greater sums of
taxation money, both absolutely and relatively in
proportion to the respective populations than
several of the states; and
Whereas, the Smith-Lever law and the Smith
Hughes law appropriates from these same revenues
large sums of money to promote extension edu
cation and vocational education in the various'
states, the need for which forms of education are
greater in Hawaii than in other parts of the United
Whereas, the Towner-Sterling bill proposes
from these same revenues further large general
appropriations for Americanization, for removal
of illiteracy, and for other educational needs that
exist in Hawaii to an extent equalled in no other
part of the United States; and
Whereas Hawaii is deliberately excluded from
the benefits accorded the various states under the
Smith-Lever act, the Smith-Hughes law and the
Towner-Sterling bill; and this exclusion is an un
fair discrimination, an injustice and unnecessary
hardship to which the people of Hawaii ought
not to be subjected:
Be it resolved, that the National Education
Association hereby instruct its Legislative Com
mission to urge appropriate legislation by Congress
to include the Territory of Hawaii in all federal
appropriations in aid of education on the same
basis as the states.

FENCE WITH RUST
yoi'j: only rapier in fencing with rust is Armco
Ingot Iron. With Armco Iron you can parry
the thrusts of this enemy of fence builders. With
a fence of Armco rente Wire you can rest assur
ed that it will not readily fall before the destruct
ive attacks of rust. That is because Armco Iron
is U'.I.Sl per cent pure and pure iron presents no
weak spot for rust to gain a foothold.
