FRIDAY MORNING.
NOVEMBER 30, 1917.
"A Rich Man's War"
THE nost vicibusand contemptible piece f
demagogy used by the Socialists' to weaken
the country in the face of the enemy is the ny
that thii i a "rich man's .war." The men wl"
make this assertion can belong only to two varie
ties, the man obsessed with one idea which
sttires and distorts his reason and the man w l'o
doesn't care what he says so long as he gct the
votes.
Any one with any common sense, any one whose
theories or notions have not abolished all percep
tion of human nature and human motives can per
ceive that if this is a "rich man's war" the rich
men are the stupidest class in the world. Accord
ing to Socialist demagogues, they are far from
stupid when it comes-to their own selfish interest.
Yet we are now asked, in spite of this charge, to
believe that these shrewd, powerful, Selfish capi
talists have put this country into a war which
is conscripting their sons for the army and their
wealth for the ii;antic destruction of warfare.
That commercial and financial .Influences have
entered into the foreign policies of European na
tions no one disputes: They have entered into the
policy of that huge system of military force v hich
we call Germany and which the Socialists are help
ing to prevail. It is true, also,-that financial and
commercial interests in America are involved with
British financial and commercial conditions--also
with German. But the charge that American cap
italists' who were prospering hugely while we e
mained out of the war were foolish enouglr'to
precipitate the United States into the war to "save
their investments" is asinine. The present price
of stocks is an answer to that.1 The vast taxation
is an answer. The rich men's sons in France today
and at the cantonments and training camps are an
r.nswer. -
The laboring men and women of England and
of France and, we believe, the laboring men and
women of America know this charge is nonsense.
What would, be the result to the British worker
with Belgium held by Germany? What would be

because he de
the result to the French worker with Germany
in control of the Briey mine fields? What would
be the result to the workers of every European
country and of our country if a Germany organ
ized for war, drunk with success, convinced of its
destiny to conquer, rule, and Germanize the whole
world, should rise from this war to dictate the
commercial conditions and threaten with a perpet
ual armed might the independence of every other
people?
"A rich man's war," yes, perhaps; and a poor
man's, too. The American Bolshe-Yiki wants us
to make" peace with the rich man's system of Ger
many, the worst of all rich men's systems, for it
carries a sword and makes war its business. Chi

THE ADVERTISER'S SEMI-WEEKLY
One way of helping Germany is by damning the
method pursued by the Allies the allies, if you
please, of America. There are a lot of traitors, in
the United States, some bearing German names,
pome hiding their Teutonic lights under a bushel,
who are more than ready to use any excuse, for
aiding llunnish barbarism. The Machaevelian
crookedness of this lreed of traitors is well exem
plified when they corrupt the pulpit, the press and
all other branches i f activity in an attempt to
prove the justice of Germany's cause
Los Angeles is having a proud time announcing
hat within its limits arc 351.1 square miles, while
New York only covers 2H5 square miles. What
pigmy cities these are compared to Honolulu,
which stretches south to Johnson Island, three
hundred miles, and wet to Ocean Island, an eight-hundred-mife
sail. V hen it comes to acreage,
we're It, even though the greater part of our area
is not real estate.
Superintendent JiuM of the board of agriculture
and forestry has more nerve than most of us. He's
going to close down the retail department of the
Territorial Marketing Division in the face of the
protests of the women of the community. It's a
good thing for him that we don't have woman
suffrage in Hawaii.

All Canadian residents of the United States who

Half an hour before the official newt

Camp, at Bchoficld Barrack, of the
results . of the army board 'a recom
mendation for . the ninety-two stu
dents, the men were In receipt of the
information and knew who were tue-
eessful. It Wat a leak which spread
the newt throughout the camp. , When
the men lined up to bear the official
report, signed by Brigadier-General
Wisser, Which bad been hurried out to
the camp by Captain Pepin of deptrf

ply a. confirmation of what they al
ready' knew. v , ', J
It all happened thia way. Half an
hour or Dicirt before the oder ar
rived by motor ear, the students were
paid off, it being their last payday for
the training tamp period. After de
ducting various account the amounts
to be paid each were about H6.67, re
maining out the 100 a month author
ized by the war department.
The pay amounta were reeeived and
then it waa discovered that some men
were getting .more than other. They
wondered until the thought struck one
of the supposedly abort-changed men
that the fellow who bad larger
amounts ' were getting "travel allow
ances," in addition to their pay, and
(his meant' going "home" for those
who failed to pass the testa. Some re
ceived $87.67, and thia meant a dollar
extra for as "travel allowance" to
Honolulu for the studenta who regis
tered from the capital. There . were
some 'who received $03, nd it was
figured that thi was H0.(17 pay, plus
travel fare by ateamer to other islands.
Thus those - who failed really knew
their Tat before Major Ioaard read
the order from General Wisser. 1 Those
who were given commission, did not
receive "travel", money. '" ' V '
Yesterday most of the student! re
ported for doty.. Some asked for a
short leave '. of absence, particularly
hose living on the, other ialands, to
return home and arrange their affairs
finally before getting down into the
thick of army life. Many had come
to Honolulu from Maui, Hawaii and
Kauai not knowing .exactly what the
future spelled for them, and naturally
their affair were left in mora or less
unsettled state. As a rule such appli
cants received leave until next Mon
day. Capt. A. I,. C. Atkinson, Q. M., U.
