THE ADVERTISER'S SEMI-WEEKLY
EXCUjSES NO HELP TO HONOLULU NOW
THERfe U plenty of truth la what Mayor Fern I least, in the matter of army booze ahd vice. Even
hat aaid in hia reply to the ultimatum of 'now, as set forth in General Wisser'a. ultimatum,
General WW that Honolulu must either clean 9 proposed to lend any assistance, by the
. ' jliL i2 , . . army, although elsewhere the army has offered
up or shut up. A tht mm time, the palpable and w Mp 1.
! attempt to "pass the buck" only adds to the shame Butf recogniing the fact that there has been
4. Honolulu should feel over the existing situation 'apathy on the part of the United States district
It is true that there has been no ettort on tfte( attorney and something more' than apathy on the
part of the local representatives of the department
of Justice, to enforce the federal laws dealing with
part of General Wisser, Honolulu has no valid
excuse for the moral condition Into which the city
the illicit sale of intoxicants or the various statutes ; has been allowed to lapse, allowed in the face of
relating to vice. Whether this is the fault of the repeated disclosures, in all the knowledge that
United Stateg' district attorney, and the united constant reiteration in the presa could supply, in
States marshal, as very many believe, or is. the
fault of the department of justice, in the instruc
tions given to Mr. Huber and Marshal Smiddy, as
some claim, we do not know. We do know, how
ever, that at no time in the history of the Terri
, tory has there been more apathy and less atten
. tion paid to complaints in the police and prosecut
ing departments of the federal court.
..It is equally true that during the past several
months, since the departure of General Strong,
there has been no continuous effort on the part
of the military authorities to help the civil officers
of the law. For a few weeks,-until he had reached
that stage In his work where results were in sight,
one young officer did excellent work. So well did
he work, as a matter of fact, and so close did he
get to some of the things going on, that he was
hastily recalled and some anonymous substitute
put in his stead.
The surface appearances were that the higher
ups in local army circles were neutral, to say the
the face of things that no man with open eyes
could avoid seeing.
Honolulu has been satisfied with it filth. Other
wise it would not have reelected Charley Rose as
sheriff or Arthur M. Brown as city attorney.
To our shame it iflust be said that our condi
tions are just as we have permitted them to be
come with open eyes and in full knowledge of all
the facts. We have voted for rottenness. We have
not only condoned it but we have encouraged it
We have refused to face the situation. We have
imagined that we could afford to capitalize our
shame and. get away with it. We have balked at
our duty and denounced those who have attempt
ed to awaken us, shouldering the "reformers"
aside as noisy nuisances.
Now we Are getting exactly what we have com
ing and what we should have known would come.
We are today being advertised throughout the
Union as a place without public conscience, aa a
strumpet city which has to be forced to be decent.
To Young America
By WILLIAM G. M'ADOO, Secretary
of the Treasury.
Nations have their childhood and their clays of
hard lessons just as children do. One hundrM
and forty years ago; when the first American
;Army marched to battle, our Nation was younger
"'. unong nations than you are among your fathers,
your mothers, and their friends. Our Army liad
drummer boys in those days, real boys of ten and
'. . twelve who marched as bravely and as proudly
into cannon fire as their great chief, General
. -V Washington, himself. Our Nation had little girls,
who laughed and cheered and loaded muskets, fpr
vtheir fathers, who fired through loop-holesiiy,Jpeir
cabin homes, when the painted Indians charged
' to the very doors.
Where many schoblhouses stand today Ameri
can boys and girls may have helped to fight and
to defeat the enemy, when our Nation, too, was
We arc in the greatest war of the world's his-
tory, and we must win this war. We can and we
t: shall win, if the boys and girls of America say
; go, and mean it, and feel it, and live it, as the boys
; and girl of 76 lived and felt and helped.
. ' The Nation needs that sort of boys and girls
. today. Not to beat our drums, nor to load our
muskets, but to start a great work which must be
done. It is the part of boys and girls today to
'; give an example of self-denial and sacrifice, to
teach fathers and mothers, to teach the grown
people of the Nation, that we still have in every
- ; young heart the spirit of 76, when-boys led our
soldiers into battle and girls fought beside their
i fathers at the cabin walls. The lesson is "Thrift"
; ,v saving to the point of sacrifice self-denial of
. V . If every, bov and eirl savs at home tonight, "I
will fight in this war", "1 will save every penny
and loan it to my government to help save the
, li;es f the big brothers of America", "I will try
1 to teacii every American I see to do the same",
' then 20,000,000 homes, the homes of all America,
will-be fill 1 with the spirit of 76, the spirit of
' "the drummer boys, of the brave girls of those days.
v America will -win again, as it has always won,
. Lvihrough the splendid strength, courage, and sacri
fice in the hearts of youths, that today will teach
, the Nation the lesson of saving and serving, which
it must, and will learn, through the message which
jhk, school children will carry home.
, Through saving your pennies, nickels, dimes,
. 11 quarters, and buying thrift stamps, and then war-
savings certificates, you will help your country
and its gallant armies to win the war.
:.' I know you will help.

'i. way. First he drops in ior a trusteeship on the
board of the Bishop Instate and now he is selected

The Plattshurg Spirit
WHAT Honolulu needs , today among our
army friends appears to be. "the Plattsburg
spirit", as described in a recent New York Times
article by "one who failed at Plattsburg, lost a
$12,000 job but finds himself a better man, men
tally, spiritually and physically". This writer
Rut perhaps the most remarkable part of the Platts
burg spirit in the high moral tone of the camp. It
pimply isn t the thing to be a rounder here, or, what
)m even more aurpriaing, to talk' of having been
one or of liking to be one.' This is due to the influence
of Colonel Wolff ami Colonel Raer, end their astound
1 ing thoroughness in carrying out the order of the
Secretary of War in clearing np Plattsburg. How they
closed saloons ami houses of bad reputation, how they
drove out gambler and peddlers of whiskey and
bottled cocktails, would make a story ia itself. For
when !olonel (then Captain) Baer started to make the
camp surroundings decent, United State Avenue, on
which the post borders, was reminiscent ofintt frontier
days; the thoroughness wrih wit.1 Ileal lMufU ;wro J
.removed, ia an evidence of the J'lattburgsjsrii.
The Park Job .
IT will be a matter of regret to very many that
the good work done for the city by A. K.
Yierra, as park superintendent, has not been
recognized by the majority of ffle board of super
visors, but that the political Campaign waged
;igainst him, and through'jhim at Supervisor Hol
linger, has been successful. It throws upon the
municipal government the same shadow that the
late Chief Justice Robertson declares has been
cast uxm the territorial judiciary that service
weighs nothing as compared to political expe
diency. It is fortunate, however, that the affair has been
delayed long enough to secure for Honolulu so
i-llii ic-nt a man as Wilbur C. Woodward, formerly
of the department of public works. Mr. Wood
ward is a capable executive and a man with a
reputation to sustain. He is one in whom the com
munity may have full confidence. The one fear
we liae is that the same olitics which made the
retention of office by Yierra impossible will mili
tate against the full efficiency of Woodward, per
haps so much so as to disgust him with the job
and the jobbers and force him to throw up the
position within a few months. Then the position
will become an opening for a spoilsman and all
the good that has been accomplished will be lost
There is danger of this, if we read the signs
aright. It is up to the "efficiency" men of the
I oard and the good citizens of the city to see that
the new superintendent is not made the early vie
urn of political nagging.
Fortunately the response of the representative
nun of the community to the Liberty Ioan re
quests of the government, the magnificent way in
which the Red Cross is being locally supported,
the generosity with which Honolulu came to the
front in the cause of the fatherless children of
I-ranee, the prompt response to the draft registra
tion, the manner in which so many have stuck to
the national guard through all its ups and downs
and the large number of men and women who
hae sailed away for war service show that all
.Honolulu cannot be included among those who
have made it necessary for the army to warn up
;hai our city is unlit for decent young Americans
from the mainland. And now is the time for this
I atriotii-, decent element to assert itself. The bat
