Already has the wanting gone forth through the

that the Germans have not ' recovered all of the
ground,; they had previously been compelled to
abandon.' Wave upon wave of serried troops have

Each, during the closing years of his life, could
look about him and see thefruitlon of the toil of
his brains. Each had the practical, daily demon
stration of the truths of his conception.'- and the
realization of the benefit of the dreams he
made come true.
Mr. Dillingham fought his way toward suc
cess against difficulties, agaiust obstacles that to
all but him appeared insuperable. Nothing but
his personal determination carried some of his
development projects over the brink of the hill
and to triumphant realization. The Oahu Rail
road, which threw into cultivation, one of the rich
est agricultural sections in-the entire world, was,
known a "Dillingham's .Folly." It was a folly been' thrown' upon the - Allied '.defenses. Like the
that resulted in miles oi smiting cane fields, in a waves of the pecan against a strong sea wall these
score of prosperous villages, in the development . va have been broken and dashed high in spray,
of a trade that brought Honolulu from a South .H place! the wall has been battered and shattered

has the main buttress been broken or weakened.

into Hamakua, the latter through a district ot
such engineering difficulties that the Hawaii Con

great mountain ranges 'of the 'tiiafolarid and are
able to appreciate the1 financial courage of the one

great credit for the achievement 'will ever belong

means at times failed to equal his desires. When
that rime arrived when h'. was able to give as his

the acid test of a practical, business man's investi

The Baltimore Speech
PRESIDENT: VILSON ' has furbished this
' country and the world with wore remarltable
state papers and with more menjorable . public
utterances, probably, than has any other , living
man but the words which he spoke at' Baltimore
on the launching of the Third Liberty ".Loan will
stand forth ever as among the' tnost, memorable
and remarkable that even he has utterefll i, . '
The President lias the faculty giytdldjtyt eo
of speaking clearly, plainly and lucidly and of
bringing' nofne forcibly to hearers and to' .readers
the idea which he desires to convey. ..,
President Wilson practically admits that in the
early days of the war he had illusions a to Ger
many and its war objects and purposes fpr he said
he is now completely disillusioniied. Then he
proceeded to dispell any illusions that others tytay
have had as to Germany. '

his references to the course pursued in Russia, the

This sjecch is one that rings sound and true

"Is it to'be another Verdun?" The question is
answered. It is a second' Verdun that is
mumpJico -and magnified, it is a neeniess and a
needless- throwing away of human life. It is a
display of rfathlessness against the very subjects
of the kaiser.
Meantime the world is awaiting 'the counter
offensive of the Allies. There are many observers
who had expected it would be. launched ere this.
It will eome soon and. this is indicated in , many

there cin b no-other result than a general falling

of German manhood.
When this offensive was launched it was said it
would possibly be the critical battle of the war,
would certainly' be Unless Germany secured an al
most overwhelming victory. Germany has not
yet secured that victory and the indications are
she will not, she canno.
American troops are now at the front in great
numbers, how great is not told. Perhaps they are
actively participating. Perhaps they await the or

longer preparation alone. It has reached the stage
of actual accomplishments. We have confidence
in American manhood and in the results that man
hood will play an important part in achieving.
Perhaps tomorrow or maybe a few days later we

James B. Castle
JAMES BICKtfELL CASTLE, the news of
whose sudden vdeath early Friday morning
came as a shock tO'the community, was in many
ways not only -one. of the leading citiens and
Kainaainas of Hawaii but THE leading citizen.
Oa Friday his body was cremated into ashes, but
today and through the years to .come his presence
will be felt in these Islands in a thousand useful
monuments he' has left behind.
"Jim" Castle prospered in Hawaii, but never at
the expense of others and never in any enterprise
that did not crry along with it other to suc
cess. Not 'alwsy lid hiirnfeises fmttieed,
because he ventured into fields of development
that did not always promise direct returns, but
which did promise ultimate benefit to Hawaii and
the people of the Islands. In these enterprises,
Mr. Castle nearly invariably assumed the greater
share of the risk and in many of them he assumed
the entire liabilities when experiment ended in
He wrought less for his own immediate profit
than for the ultimate good of the many. He pio
ueered the way along many a dimmlt commercial
trail, opening the way for others to follow and
reap where -he had sown. He was an idealist in
commerce, fiercely honest, always fair. He never
stooped to a crooked bargain nor took advantage
of another's embarrassments
"Jim" Castle had a knightly outlook, using his
great talents and his many opportunities to help
others. His vision was fixed upon a better Ha
waii of greater opportunity for the average man,
and to that goal he worked.

SOME STILL THINK

PARIS, April (Associated
Preaa) W5iile belief at the 'Pat Of

kne-v during- thi we.'k br h was Ul,
end none .of tlicin ren'icl yesterlav
morning that his condition was critical.
But shortly after two o'clock yeeter
day afternoon his earthly life ended.
In the earljr hours of Tueslay Mr.
McTsggart was taken with a suddeii
attach of what appeared to, bo appen
dicitis, but he seemed to respond to
treatment On Friday, however, h.
was taken , to -Queen Hospital, where
he" was operated on that afternoon. Tln
Immediate cause of bis death was peri
tonitis. Long Time Resident
Mr. McTsggart was fifty-eight year
of age, and first came to Hawaii twente
years ago. He waa a native of the
province of Ontario, Canada, having
been born near Beilville on May 7,
IHflO. There were eight sisters and
three brothers In the family.
By trade a mechanic, he found hU
way to Southern California during the
"boom days" of ISRfi. But in San
Diego, where he was working, the V.
M. C. A. needed a secretary nnd young
McTaggart was selected for the' task.
Here he spent four years, during which
lime he waa married to Miss Mary
Elizabeth Fu Inter.
From Ssb Dieiro he came to Honolulu
and entered the employ of the Oahu
Hallway ami Land Co., working under
John A. Hughes in the car shops. In
1900 he went to Hilo for the Hilo Rail
road Company as master car builder. It
was nnder him there that the rolllnir
stock of the line was constructed.
Ooes To Vancouver
In 1903 he went to Vancouver, and
spent two years with his brother ,ln
business. But the call of the Islands
was too strong, and he returned to his
former employer, the Oahu Railway and
Associates Express Regard
The high regard of the companv for
him was expressed by many of the rail
road men yesterday when the news of
his death was received. "He was a
good man," said Superintendent lVn
iiison, " uood in' everv way. He never
failed to command the respect of all
classes, his fellow employes just ns
absolutely as the nianaircment, " It
was this latter qualitv that took him to
the position which he held during the
last vears of his life.
Work For College
The College of Hawaii was looking
for a man to take charge of its shops,
and Mr. McTaggart had the qualifl. a
ins of technical skill, high character
and attractiveness to young people to
make him the ideal man for the place,
'resident Dean of the College said yes.
terday:, MKor about ' eight .years John
McTaggart has "been iai charge of the
shops' work at the College of Hawaii.
We have held him in high esteem, not
only because be was an efficient man
and a valuable teacher, but also because
of his character and influence. In him
we all recognized a Christian and a
man, one who lived his Christianity in
a simple, straightforward, practical
way which made every one of us better.
We have experienced a great loss, but
no one can measure the good that will
flow from his association with the suc
cession of students who have worked
in the shops at the College of Hawaii."
Of Simple Ufa
Born a Quaker, no title ever seemed
quite appropriate before his name.
Much of the simplicity and directness
of the Friends remained with him
throughout life. This formed quite a
part of the charm of his character. But
from youth he was associated with the
Methodist Church. He was among the
most prominent and devoted members
of the local congregation, and was pc
euliarly loved and respected by" them.
Not infrequently he addressed the
Sunday congregations, and always with
profit and edification to his hearers.
But especially it was a delight to him to
bring the power and comfort of the
gospel to such gsoups as those at the
Leahi Home, the Kalihi Detention
Home, and the jails. Here his kindly,
wholesome life made the messages that
he brought always effective. Prof. J.
M. Voting often said of him that he
was "just the kind of a man to have
with hoys." But he was quite as
popular -with girls. Long deeply inter
ested in the Susanna Wesley Home for
(iirls, he never went to the Home with
out the girls flocking around him as
they were supposed to have done tc
the Fied I'iper of Hamlin: Few will
mourn his loss more than these orieutiil
cirls front -the plantations.
Three boys were born in the Mc
Taggart home. The oldest died in in
fancy, and is buried in Han Diego,
where the ashes of the father wijl re
pose. The others are well known here,
Clenn McTaggart of the Hawaiian
Trust Company, and Karl, a aenior at
McKinlev High School and also em
ployed at the Y. M. C. A. These, with
Mrs. MrTaggart, form the immediate
home circle. Mrs. H. N. Dennison is
