That news from Washington, secured by the Democratic secretary of
the Republican Goernor of Hawaii would be reassuring, if it were not so
obviously handled by the head of"tlie class in the Mutt school. Under
the chaotic conditions that exist, in mainland politics no man knows what the
next day will bring forth. All that Hawaii is certain of is, that its six votes
are solid for Taft and will stay in th- scrimmage till the last vote is counted.
BACKING HONOLULU'S WORLD BEATER.
If Honolulu wants lo know what ta do about Duke Kahanamoku, it
liquid well turn to Southern California for an example.
Ve all recall May Sullon, the tennis pla)cr, who was such a headliner
th.r-u-jh the country for sccral seasons Miss Sulton was a splendid player,
and it the same time the live men of Southern California were quick to see
the opportunity in making the most of a world-beater as a means for draw
ing 'avorable attention to their section of the country.
(vihanamoku is a wonder. Properly handled, he bids fair to take first
he .nrs at the Olympic races. Under any circumstances he is in the high
est rink of American swimmers. He is a worthy type of young Hawaiian
America; he is a good sportsman with none of the characteristics of the
Honolulu has a great opportunity to not only advertise itself most favor
ably, but give assurance of success in a world's contest lo a young man who
i most deserving.
When we have a world-beater wh not help him make the most of it and
incidentally help ourselves.
CONSERVATION OF OUR ROADS.
Road conservation Is a subject fre
quently discussed in this city Roads
are built and then allowed to
pieces. Waste Im the result.
We often hear of what is done

cities have turned to us as magnificent!
examples of what ought to be. True,'

there were no lcp.iir gangs at work,

ilde far on any road In France or Go-,
many, or even In Italy, without (Hid
ing a fovv, perhaps only one or two,
road repairers at work. The traveler,
here, hardly ever meets the repairer
at work. He comes from time to time
to a bar across the road with the
warning, "Rond closed. Under con
struction." Which method Is the better and
sounder of the two? Shall we con
tinue to build roads under contract
nnd then leave them to their fate, or
shall we limit somewhat our plans for
road construction, husband our re
sources, and retain a part of the
money that could be used for con
struction In the-vork of-conservatlon?
Construction without conservation Is
futile What measures should be tak
en to protect localities from the un
wise use of Its funds? In the first
place, It Is necessary that the public
should be educated to the needs of
the situation. The tux-pa) urn must
take an interest in the road question
In each locality. They must see to It
that they have men of probity and dis
cretion as rond masters. They must
Insist that an adequate measure of the
amount of the budget In each locality
be used for woik of conservation. Ac
cording to tho laws of the locality in
which they live, they should Inform
themselves as to what body Is re
sponsible for the condition of tho
roads, and such person or body should
be held strictly accountable for their
stewardship. Unless some such course
Is followed, we shall probably see lit
