Tragic EplBOdo of War'Rocallod,
She-was a dainty littlo miss, fnr from homo and mother and leaching in a
XDYcrnracnt school on tho Garden Island. She loves Kauai, because tho people
are "so nice" over there nnd she dearly loves to hear tho Harking Sands and
llaw on the Spouting Horn nnd tho other " stunts" that mallbinis do on tho
rfcn Island, but she writes tho school department that sho really must bo
jiTen another school. Sho claims that tho pupils, individually nnd collectively,
IkTe hurt her feeling from the topmost curl of her pretty head down to the
Ttst bit of nearsilk in her holcproofs.
It appears that she was struggling to Instruct her pupils in "lnnguago"
and had stood up beforo her class to furnish the illustrations. Tho lesson hnd
proceeded as far as the -word "ornament" nnd it was necessary that
should bo ablo to dcflno tho term. "Now, children," sho said, "I have
taiuEv'n my hair. Can anyono tell mo what tboy are!"
Sho. hnd reieronco to tho fnncy hairpins, with tho rhincstono tops, and who

School teachers are at a premium in Hawaii just now and I wonder that
tie politicians havo not taken tho situation and "viewed with alarm" or
"pointed with prido," as tho caso might be. I know two good teaching
thnt nro going, bogging, despito a great deal of work and porsuasion on
She part of Chaplain I'rudcn of tho Second Infantry. The school is ono to
if established at Schofleld Harrncks just as soon as tho teachers can bo
and thoy will bo engaged just as soon as tho gcninl chaplain can And
Swo ladies, with tho necessary qualifications, who nro willing to tnkc sixty
t?llars a month each, with free house, fuel and light, at tho big military poBt.
Tlio question of educating tho childron of tho officers and men of tho
soon to bo quartered hero is something tho territorial authorities will
iave to tako up at tho noxt session of tho legislnturo. It is certainly tho
ifeiy of the local government to make Hawaii as attractive a placo as possible
for the soldiers, becnuso tho ofllccrs nnd men and their families nro going to
3orm a big part of our population beforo long and becomo ono of tho great
3ttors in our wellbcing and development. Because tho soldiers havo no votes
a not a reason why thoy should not receive a great deal of consideration from
war lawmakers, Binco it is no certain thing that wo will havo votes either in
a-short while if wo do not do tho square thing by the rcprosentntivcB of Undo
3in who wear his uniform. It is doubtful if tho fodoral govcrnmont would
aver expect tho Territory to build any schoolhouses on tho reservations, but
iherc. is no reason why tlio Territory should not furnish tlio' teachers and seo
tl it that there nro plenty of ncconiniodations for all tho children who want
Ja go to tho public schools oft" the reservations.
If there aro to bo fifteen thousand troops on this island, it will mean that
atveral hundred, children from the posts will bo hero. At tho present timo,
aeadi1 tn go to school, thoro nro childron nt Loilohua in addition to
So score or so from that post attending private schools in tlio city. Oahu
3ust prcparo fon them. Wo must also prcparo to put up immediately at least
two more big school buildings in tho city for tho children now unable to find
accommodations in tlio existing schools.
1 am told thnt thoro aro nt Ienst thrco hundred children of school ago in
Honolulu who aro receiving- no education whntovcr, tho parents of each
that thero is no room for them, whilo four out of every five of tho schools
aro badly overcrowded.
This is something wo must remedy at once, whilo wo should prcparo nt
diis first session of the legislature to look after tho new children coming to
31awxii. School conditions hero nro not keeping up with the general growth
tt the community. If it wcro not that thero aro nbout twenty private schools
3n. Honolulu, the lack of public school accommodation would bo very apparent.

The Republicans, in tho county platform, havo agreed to provide) payment
jot prisoners used on territorial or county work, such pay to bo given to tho
.lamilics of. those prisoners who havo families and to bo saved up for tlioso
prisoners who havo not, to bo tlirncd over to them nt tho expiration of their
enns. This platform plank lms a humano sound and is undoubtedly intended
so remedy conditions, but, like n good many othor things taken up by tho
goljticians, it fails to go fnr enough. In tho first place, is it intonded that
aajpiisoncr should work nt all unless ho is paidt Cleaning up his own cell,
sweeping tho prison yards, cooking tho prison meals, monding his clothes nnd
all sorts of such things are well included under the heading of "territorial
or county work," but it is surely not tho intention of the Republicans to pay
ior this, unless tho prisonors put in their whole timo at it. What tho law
should be is that every mnu sent to jail should hnvo to .perforin n certain
nmount of labor each day, to pay for his board and lodging, and should then
"AiffnllQwed pay for whatever extra work ho performs for tho municipality.
It is all nonsonso tho way wo aro compelling ourselves to - provide f rco
5olrd and lodging for a lot of lazy whelps who go to jnil juBt to nvoid tho
leccjslty of working. Thero nro several such in tho jail at tho present time,
aren -who absolutely rofuBO to work. These men, who havo repeated sentences
icorcd up against them, should rcceivo "hard labor" sontcnecs and bo mado
to, break rock in tho prison yards, work in tho quarries, tako caro of tho public
and grounds or perform soino other useful work, nnd when they aro
aken out to work they should bo mado to work, not, play baseball in tho
paries or practito glees along tho waterfront.

3Tonry Allen, to Illustrate what I mean. Patrick broko into tho police court

Dr. A. .1. Derby, who has been on tho Island of Kauai for nbout six weeks,
returned to Honolulu yesterday. Doctor Derby is a ltcpublienn, but is indignant
over what ho terms is n despicable trick to hurt L. Li. JlcCundlcss as
candidate for Delegate to Congs. When seen last evening Doctor Derby
"Just before 1 left Kauai a wireless message was received thero from
Mr. Shingle to the effect thnt 'Mr. MeCundlcss realizes his defeat and is now
oxeiting his energies toward securing tho Governorship.'
"Tho territorial nnd county ticket on Kauai will probably bo a clean
sweep for the Republicans, but Kuhio will trail the ticket, with a possiblo
chanco that Mct.'andless will carry the Island of Kauai."
In tho Fight Up to the Last Ballot.
"Word has been brought to mo that stories havo been spread in
the other islands by wireless thnt I have withdrawn Jrom the race as
a candidate for Delegate to Congress, with tho expectation of becoming
a candidate for Governor, should Governor Woodrow Wilson bo
olcefed President next Tuesdaj".
"Such stories of my withdrawal aro made out of whole cloth and
arc absolutely without foundation. Iu fact, I desiro to nssert nt this
time and in the most emphatic manner possible, that I am in tho fight
to stay nnd will be in it up to tho moment that the last ballot is counted.
Any such petty political tricks to 'hurt my candidacy by tho retail,
ing of palpable campaign lies is liablo to prove a booinernng to thoso
who have countenanced such work." (Signed) L. L. McCANDLKSS.
Shingle Denies Sending Messages.
Robert W. Sbingle, chairman of tho Republican Territorial Commltteo,
entered uu emphatic denial last night to tho charge that ho had sent tho
wireless messages to othor islands, to tho effect that McCnudless had withdrawn
from tho raco for Delegate and was bendiug his energies toward
"1 seut no message of tho sort," said Shingle, "nnd if nny such was
sent from headquarters, it was without my knowledge, und you may mako
this denial ns strong as you like."
When told that one of tho messages purporting to como from him was
reported to hnvo been received by Charles itiee of Kauai, Shinglo snid: "I
sent no mesBiigo of the kind to Rice, or anyono else."
Democratic Committee's Denial.
"Mado desperate by tho apparent defeat which Kuhio is facing in his
rucofor congress, his campaign managers havo resorted to tho grossest trickery
in a last vain effort to save tho dny, Wireless messages havo been eout
from llopublicau headquarters to tho othor islands stating tlio palpablo falsehood
that Ij, h. MeCundlcss bus withdrawn from tho rneo for Delegate ou
tho Democratic ticket and will bo a candidato for tho governorship should
the 'Democratic party win in the national election.
This barefnred untruth can only bo mot with Jho statement that L, I
McCundlens is n candidate for Delegato on tho Democratic ticket, and is not
a ciindMuto for Governor. Ho is confident that ho will bo tho noxt Delegato
from Hawaii nnd that tho underhand dealing and knavish acts which havo
nmrkodtho fight of Kuhio against him, will hut result iu drawing to him
the votes of thoo who believe in hnnestv nnd fnlr play.

it bocamo necessary, for the first timer
in tho history of tho United States,
to appoint a woman as doputy marshal
to bo tho guard, to bring tho prisoners
down every day and to tako back in;
tho afternoon any whoso time hnd expired.
Because of tho national1 law it
is necessary to releaso the prisoners
within tho district, so Miss Wilson
must get ihem safely across tliei lino
beforo her responsibility for them and
incidentally tier day's works ends.
Miss Wilson is a Kentucky girl, nnd
it is a source of wonder to nil who
meet her that a girl with her advantages
of birth, breeding nnd education,
is ablo to adjust herself to a position
so fraught with responsibility, to say
uuuniig pi unnger.
Tho duties at tyest nro essentially of
a nerve-racking nature and tho contact
with such derelicts of society is far
from edifying, paiticulnrly as some aro
in a positively loathsome condition, and
often start in to be noisy and disorderly.
Moro often they aro suffering
the pangs of rcmorso and bowail tho
fate that sends them, down on tho
"far.ii." Many times they aro hysterical,
and then Miss Wilson has
plenty to do.
To her many friends she is nothing
short of a wonder. She was formerly
a school teacher, but because of failing
health came to Washington in
search of somo governmental position
which would tako her out of doors.
It is a far cry from teaching children
to handling criminals, but probably tho
sumo qualities of character aro neces
sary in each caso.
Miss Wilson was very highly recommended
and when it was decided that
she should bo appointed to her present
position it was some littlo time beforo
sho could make up her mind to break
tho news to her family back in Kentucky.
WIiqii sho did sho was ordered
homo immediately. But she is made
of tho stuff that outers tho composition
of pioneers and boing tho pioncor
iu this field, determined to stay and
mako good. In tho timo she has been
deputy marshal sho has carried down
moro than a thousand women to servo
sentence, and has neve r hud ono escape,
though sho has had some very trying
experiences. Being only a very young
woman nnd attractive alio is subject to
much attention und women less well
balanced would find it disconcerting,
but sho has a splendid dignity, perfect
self-control with calm temperament
and a firmness which oven tho most
unruly of her charges quickly appreciates.
Thoy havo learned that whilo
sho wastes no unnecessary words upon
them that suo will uso her authority
