Mrs. Augustus P. Knudsen, c(o Mr.
William; Peachy, Florence Court,
Washington, D. C.
My dear Mrs. Knudsen: You hao
been kind enough to suggest that I
might send through J oil to the women
of the Hawaiian Islands a word about
their sharo In tho great movement for
forost protection which Is now sweep
ing over tho wholo country. I do bo
with tho keenest pleasure, because Hid
part of tho women in this great move
ment has ovcrywhero been not only nn
Important one for tho present, but tho
essential part when wo como to con
sider tho future. It Is Just bb natural
for tho women to occupy themselves
mainly with tho condition of tho Na
tion In tho future, when tho children
of today will hao taken chargo of tho
Nntlonal affairs, as It Is almost Inev
itable that tho men will give their
principal attention to tho questions and
docjslons which wo must make now,
Theso questions and decisions concern
tho future not less than tho present,
but after all those who control tho
children control the Nation of tho fu
It has happened oer and over ngaln
that tho women liavo taken the lead
lng part In ostaullshlng' forestry In va
rious parts of 'tho United State. 'In
Pennsylvania tho wholo movement be
can with tho women; In Minnesota
they took tho laboring car In estab
lishing tho Minnesota National Forest.
And tho growing Interest in forost
preservation on the part of llio Fed
cratlon of Women's Clubs, Tho Na
tlonal Mothers' Congress, and other
great bodies of women, Is one of thy
most nopcrul things or nil or us who
nro Interested In securing for tho future-,
so far as we can, some benefits
froni tho forests which we enjoy to
You in Hawaii liavo a peculiar In
terest In this question. Nowhere dre
forests and water supply more Intl
mutely connected than lit tho Inlands,
and very few communities have made
such progress as jours toward prac
tlcnl forest nreseration There rn
malnfl, of course, a very largo wprk to
bo done. You are fortunntc In having
to good a, man ns Mr. Hosmer ns your
Forester tq assist )ou In tho work.
More Important still Is your Interest
In public questions, which led ou to
send jour representative so admirably
chosen, to the meeting of tho Rivers
ond Harbors Congress and the Joint
Conservation Conference. I welcomo
tho opportunity for cooperation with
you for tho Forest Service, and I as
sure ou that 'tho service will always
welcome tho opportunity to do, what
It can to help along. One of the thing's,
I want most Is a chance to visit tho

My dear Mrs. Knudsen' I wish to
express my pleasure that it was pos
sible for )ou to como to Washington
from J our far-distant home on Kauai
to attend tho conservation and other
meetings held In Washington. Tho of
feet tins been excellent In stimulating
other women to take up tlin matter nnd
In arousing n moro general Interest In
the larger economic subjects.
I trust that It will bo practlcablo up
on your return to get together some
of tho active women of tho Islands and
continue the discussion of these mat
ters and maintain a continuous Inter

A Clergyman's Opinion
TIME WAS when men were aslamed to admit that they owned an Interest in a mining proposition. They bought mining stock on the sly and kept it dark from their friends
and families because they regarded their investment as a pure speculation, a bet and a gamble, and a long chance. Eat times have ch anged in recent years, and so has
mining. The mining businsss has advanced just the same as his the sugar business. Men of national importance, identified with banki ng, insurance, railroads and the lead
ing industrials are now interesting themselves in mining because mining has been reduced by modern methods, a knowledge of geology, and the expertness of modem engineers to
a science and a sure thing. Mining k today a very important and basic business and it's a good deal safer than most businesses according to the tale of tell-tale statistics. Also
it is one of the cleanest businesses under the sun. A Methodist minister was recently reproached by one of his flock for identifying himself with a gold-mining proposition, and
this was his retort, in substance, in an open letter published in his local broadsheet:
"Conscientious scruples AGAINST buying stock in a gold mine? I have no such scruples. I purchastd my stook as a matter of principle. The Sermon on the Mount and tho
"ten commandments don't come into the matter and theology needn't. The fact is, I admire a miner's wealth. It is clean. There is no blood or orphans' or widows' tears on it. It
"is acquired away from the scheming and cut-throat competition that characterises ordinary ventures, where the success of one man so often means the disaster and downfall of some
"other man, or, perhaps, a number of men. Nobody has been pinched; nobody has been- wronged. The miner who digs a fortune out of the ground has the satisfaction that he
"hasn't robbed a soul, even though he becomes a hundred times a millionaire. As-I look at thei matter, there are few producers of wealth. The many live on the fewThe only man
"com"rable with the miner is the farmer. He gets what he has direct from nature, but he, produces perishable Wealth. While he meets a want, his contribution to the world's
"wealth therefore is not a permanent one like the miner's. The gold miner is today the king wealth producer of the country, and I honor him above all others, .It is no dishonor; it
"needs no apologv to emulate his examnle or assist him in his efforts. That is the whole question in a ndfjhtl." .
And who shall say that this clergyman wasn't right, be his critic a Methodist, an Episcopalian, a Catholic, or a Chinese Confucian?
Apart from being the cleanest business, mining is one of the best and safest and soundest and most conservative businesses .under the s un PROVIDED you get into the right
mine with the right people. ,""
The "MAYFLOWER" Mine is a proven gold mine, and certified as such by the U. S. Government, the Nevada County Promotion Committee who are on the spot, and by
several Honolulu gentlemen who have been on' the spot, and it is in the hands of honest and honorable men. lis guiding spirit is an American who located and developed by his
genius one of the greatest mines that exist in Canada the "Sultana" a man who was honored on his last visit to Europe by being elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical So
ciety of England, and that honor is not conferred promiscuously on Tom, Dick, Harry, or your uncle Annie. Enough said. BUY MAYFLOWER STOCK. BUY IT NOW!
