ON VAN KIRK CASE
LessonsDrawn From Local
Affair What Other
Editor Evening Hulletln:
There are some things ono would
nsk permission to present bearing
upon tho Miss Van Kirk Incident
of so recent occurronco In our mldit.
Tho exceptional feature In this
case I regard not to bo the fact that
there has been Bitch nn occurronco,
nnd that hero In Honolulu, but iho
fact that tho. nttcntlon of tho publl'!
wns so early nnd so forcibly drawn
toward It, nnd public sentiment
awakened regarding it.
Tho fact Is still to bo regretted,
however, wo believe, that tho end
of it seems little better thou tho be
ginning. A .lady comes to Honolu
lua city noted for Its hospitality,
and ns possessing exceptional advan
tages for needed rest and quiet and
benefits to health yet almost Im
mediately upon her arrival sho finds
herself under most embarrassing nn-!
hnrasslng circumstances, because ot
n peculiar physical ailment; circum
stances calculated to but oggravata
tho causo of her sufferings, and en
tail upon hcr.further misery and suf
fering; nnd now, without sufficient
time to rally even In a measure, sho
must retake a Beven-day voyage, nn.l
this without her own expressed wish
in the matter so far as wo yet know,
or such direction given, oxcc'pt to
herself, by friends at a dlstnncc.
If such decision comes from friends
who know tho lady best, tho pro
ceeding is a Justifi'nblo one, but If
not, does not tho action justly Incur
severe criticism both hero ana
abroad? Wo beltevo it does, nnd
thnt the whole conduct of the cacc,

Yhe first movo In this direction
has already been suggested by the
Hulletln, viz., the establishment
of n receiving station, or nt Uus. a
detention room, and a matron.
Tho great need for thoso Is cer
tainly apparent now, In tho luck
of these, It would seem that for an
emergency ense the. humane officer
would have been willing- to be call
ed upon, a woman of Intelligence,
and within tho precincts of the po
lice station; or the Associated Char
ities bo called upon; or n nurse de
tailed from one of our several hos
pitals; or tho Woman's Exchange bo
notified of tho need. From atiy or
all of these wo are suro thcro would
have been "prompt response and the

Honolulu, T. H., Teb. 21, 1010.
So much Interest has been shown In
regard, t6 tho credltablo manner In
which tho Mallhlnl Judges awarded
tho prizes at. tlio Floral Ibiradc, that
a brief statement ns to how these
judges performed their work bo Im
pai Daily will bo of Interest.
Each owner of a car, entered for tho
pnrndo, received n printed card on
which ho write his namo, tho, occu-j
pants of tho car, the color sclicmo, and
tho class tu which tlio' car. was inted.
These cords wcro handed to tho judg
es' ot tho rcspoctivo classes, I. o. alt
curds marked class A. 'went to tho
judges of that particular class.
Tho Judges nlto wcro supplied with
cards, arranged In tho form of poorfl
sheets. There contained blanks to bo
filled In by each judge. Tho points
wcro awarded for conception of do
rlgn, consistency color fclieino, com
pleteness and cunsonanco of occupants.
Tho htgho3t possible number of
points that could ba obtained wero
ono hundred. Twenty polntB woro tho
highest to bo awarded fur each ot
these flvo special features. Tho thrco
Judges of each class worked Indepen
dently and noted down in their cards
tho exact number of points they con
eldered ench feature dosorved.
After tho thrco Judges had each not
ed down on their cards tho number of
polntB they considered each feature
was worth, they compared their notes,
nnd took an avorago of tho number of
points nwnrded each feature. Thus,'
If ono judgo noted down on his card
15 points for consistency, tho second
Judgo only gave 10 polntB for that
particular featuro nnd tho third judgo j
UUUbiUl'tuu u nurui 1110 iuu uuiouui,
viz; 20 points, theso thrco nwards
wero added together nnd tho nvorago
This plan was followed out In each
featuro and after tho averago had been
t.iken for the wholo flvn features nor.
talnlng to each car, thoso averages'
woro added' up and tho total compared,
with tho totals' of tho averago taken
In otlior entries nnd the car having
tho highest number of points was
awarded tho prize. I
In this way tho Judging was ab
solutely Impartial and has been much
appreciated by tho thousands of pco
plo who witnessed tho Judging. It In
hoped thnt Mallhlnls will bo nppolut-j
cu next year to act as Judges ns this
year's nwards havo glvon so much satisfaction.
