THE KAUAI DISTRICT MAGISTRATES
The rumored contemplated action of the
chief justice of the supreme court, the lion.
Etnil C. Peters, in removing district magis
trates C. B. llofgaard of Waiinea, and J. L.
lljorth of Lihue, after years of efficient ser
vice and replacing them with appointees of
Hawaiian origin, lias been received on Ka
uai with amazement mingled with indigna
tion aud everything possible is being done
to stay the apparently erring baud of the ap
That long years of efficiency in the admin
istration of office should count for nought
seems incredible and it seems si ill more in
credible that men of unknown merits and
with doubtful knowledge of law and proced
ure should be slated to fill the important
offices of district magistrates of Waiinea aud
If carried out in spite of the protests of
the jteople of Kauai, the day will surely
come, when the appointing power will realize
its mistake, that will prove a boomerang and
that can only reflect on scant wisdom."
Both judges are at present holdovers,
their terms of office having expired lately.
It is exacted that the chief justice will
be on Kauai soon to take final action and
that will 1k the time for a united Kauai
to show him where the jteople stand aud
that their wishes count for something after
FORD'S XEWEST STUXT
People will watch with interest the newest
move of Ilenry Ford in the industrial world.
His plants at Detroit closed down September
16, throwing 80,000 men out of work in that
city. Hundreds of concerns in other cities
make parts for Ford cars everything from
lamps to tires. These, of course, also would
have to reduce forces or shut down entirely.
So, altogether the closing of Ford's plauts
would mean close to 2,000,000 people thrown
out of work. Ford declares coal, steel and
railroad officials are robbing the taxpayers
of this country of millions of dollars annual
ly by profiteering, and that many labor lead
ers are allied with them in the graft. He
says he doesn't propose to be "held up" any
longer, so will shut up shop. It's an awful
price to pay in an attempt to stop profiteer
ing, this thing of throwing two million peo
ple out of work. But if stops profiteering
who can say that it isn't worth it?

The basis of American prosperity is ag
riculture. When the fields and the forests,
the flocks and the herds are producing, new
wealth is being created from the soil, the
source of all wealth. When they are not pro
ducing the people must live on what has been
produced until a new crop can be planted,
harvested and distributed.
According to the Department of Agriculture,-
our crops this year will be ample for
prosperity. The July report on winter wheat
gave an estimate of 5(!9,000,000 bushels
against a total of 587,000,000 in 1921. The
spring crop in the northwestern states wlli
have a bumper yield per acre and the total
will !e higher than last year. The prospects
for European demand for wheat are good.
Outside of Russia, Europe will produce be
tween 90,000,000 and 100,000,000 bushels of
wheat less than last y&ir. What Russia will
have, no one can say. But with this shrink
age in production and with Canada produc
ing her biggest crop since 1915, the Ameri
can farmer is in good positiou to supply not
only domestic needs, but most of the foreign
demands as well.
The corn crop is in good condition and
promises to yield some three billion bushels.
The oat crop is poor; the hay crop is large,
and the amount of dairy products being pro
duced and now held in storage is large. Fruit
generally is in good shae, and a record
breaking crop in many sections is reported.

SOMETHIXG IS WROXG
When we reflect that Judge Land is is
getting a salary of $50,000 a year as the head
of national baseball leagues, and Will Hays
is drawing down $100,000 as chief executive
of the moving picture interests of this coun
try, we turn to school teachers who are draw
ing down a measly $1,200 a year and college
professors getting ?2,400, and we know some
thing is wrong.
Take the average school teacher on Ka
uai and if he or she receives a salary of more
than $25 a week they can count themselves
lucky. And when a preacher of one of our
churches receives as much as $2,000 a year
he is said to be head of a "wealthy charge."
We are not begrudging either Judge Lnndis
or Mr. Hays their good fortune. If we could
swap jobs with either of them we'd do it be
fore morning. But we are deploring a state
of affairs which makes such salaries possi
ble and so out of proportion with those paid
men and women who are doing a million
times more beneficial work. What Judge Lnn
dis is doing is not going to help the youth
of tomorrow. What Will Hays is doing is
not fixing it so one single man or woman in
America can earn more or enjoy more com
forts. But the teacher who fits our boys and
girls for a place in the world, and the min
ister who labors to fix us a place in a better
world are forced to exist on next to nothing
while fabulous salaries go where they do the
The salary system of this country is go
ing to prove a mighty serious proposition
some of these days if we do not look to it a
little closer. And the consequences are going
to be terrible to contemplate.
Commercialized baseball is failing to hold
the interest of the public, and golf is coming
into favor, and today two millions of Ameri
cans are playing golf. Golf is growing in fav
or faster than ever baseball grew and bids
fair to supplant baseball in public favor.
People do not take the same interest in the
players who are in the game for the mon
ey there is in it, as they do in those who
go into the game because they love it and
the fame they acquire thru earnest endeavor
to win laurels for their home team.

Addressing a meeting of daily newspaper
editors some time ago, A. P. Sandles, for
years head of the Ohio State Fair board, ut
tered the following sensible remarks:
"The country editor has never made a
million dollars. As a rule he makes more do
nations to the community than any other
half dozen folks. A town is always on the
map if it has a real, live news sheet to make
a noise, advertise its merchants, and make
people think. The weekly newspaper is a pow
er that is recognized by the political boss
more than it is recognized by the home folks
or even the home merchants. The clubs,
lodges and social events all want space in
the home paper whether the subscription price
is paid up or not. The profit in a country
paper is often the money that is credited on
the books of the editor and never collected.
Everybody ought to have the home paper,
even if only to be sure of a good funeral no
tice. But it ought to be paid for."
More than one man can tell you his hon
eymoon was over the minute he pulled out
his chewing tobacco.
