whin it i- over. That may be a Delphic prophecy;
tut it i tin only sensible and patriotic prediction
that people should heed. When war broke, H. G.
Wells, who had the greatest fallowing of any lit
crarv m iu as a "prophet", said "throe months"
;ind wr..te articles to prove it. Mr. W ells, after
renewing Ins miess generously from time to time,

when i.crmanv is beaten and that God only
knows when that will be. Till the time comes,
patK'tu e' The patience that is patriotism.
The war must on. It is the first ditty of
Amcriean patriotism to shout to the ears of our
leader- " l ight on fight on and on ! Lo, we are
with ou always" '
And the piestion of why Foch docs not come
on with his grand offensive is one for military
experts rather than those of tis behind the battle
lines wholh unversed in the multitudinous influ
ences and c onsiderations that bear upon the judge
ment of the generals. Those most competent to
have an opinion are confident that Foch knows his
work, tli.it his judgement is dependable, ati(J that

were routed.
l och ha- -aid that he can strike a counter-blow
in 1 ' 1 if America gives him two million soldiers,
and that at all costs he will guard Paris and pro
tect the heart of France; that he will not swerve
from Ins plan, even if it be necessary to sacrifice
the channel ports. And he is right. This world
war revolves around Paris. It was a boast to keep
i dinner engagement there that led the Kaiser to
storm I'clgium. Foch's job is to make sure, first
of all, that the defense line of Taris cannot be
overmastered.
William Howard Taft says that it will take five
million American soldiers fighting in 1920, not
I'M', to win the war. Other leaders of observa
tion ami information have their opinions and ten
tatively hazard guesses. But the main thing is
that the war must go on, and that the American
people must he patient. For patience today is
synonymous with the best patriotism. Patience
todav. uatience tomorrow, patience in all the
dreary tomorrows of a long, long war. The wars
..f our past American history have been compara
tively short. We were accustomed to think- of the
Civil War as one of almost interminable duration;
the Mexican and Spanish wars, by their briefness,
spoiled our perspective of mind.
As yet America, though generous, has made
comparatively little sacrifice in this war. Our dead
are still numbered hv the hundreds instead of the
hundreds of thousands. Our cities have been free
from attack, our land is unsullied except by the
occasional footprint of a spy. So impatience would
ill become us in the face of England's bulldog
grimness. of Belgium's tenacious desperation, of
France's unshakable fortitude. Perhaps if we. too
had been under the Kaiser's hoof or stared up at
1 is bomb raining Zeppelins or seen our gutters
run blood we would not have war's ending so
much on our lips, but would speak more often of
victory come when it may.
JSiit America is not weak-hearted, nor is Amer
ican impatience more than superficial. All along
we have rather hall expected that the war would
be over before we had to throw our full weight
into it. But the full weight is needed. The dream
of an early peace is a delusion, fostered and nour
ished by Prussian generals who wish to create the
very impatience and discontent that comes from
expecting and not finding peace. America is into
this war to help w in it ; and to the end her guns,
her men, her money and her food will be given
gener-jiisly and sa riticially. America w ill suffer
all things, endure all things, deprive herself of all
things, TO Till". FN I). She will eat soggy bread
and llooverizc cheerfully. She will go broke if
she has to. She will back up the President and
congress to the limit. She will not grumble at the
food administration and will take her orders from
the departments without a murmur. Her fighting
patience is up, and it shall know no ending nor
s-hadow of turning. No government ever had vvithl
it or behind it a more unified, resolute, loyal and
patient press and people. Germany must and will
be crushed. "No ipiarter", said the Kaiser to Bel
gium ; and be i-- answered by the echo of his own
words. There .-hall he no quarter and no respite
for Germany until -he crumbles, her sword brok
en, her mailed list mangled and helpless as the
withered left arm of the monarch who loosened
the dogs of war upon mankind.
W. 8. 8. '
A Milo correspondent advances the suggestion
that the school teachers forego their "unearned'
salaries, paid during the summer vacation period,
giving this back to the government for Red Cross
or to purchase a residence for the Governor. It
appears that miiiu- people do have the idea that
school teachers should not be paid for every month
in the year, a rather surprising idea, if any thought
whatever be given to it. However, the teacher of
Hawaii do not draw any "unearned" salary. A
casual study of the salary scale would incline the
majority to the opinion that they do not com
mence to draw even all that which they earn.
As Expected
APPARENTLY the Shingle Rill, conceived for
the laudable purpose of continuing the maxi
mum production of sugar in the Territory, has
died a borning. It was a case of infanticide at the
hands of its overly eager parents. It was strangled
to death in advance of its birth by those most
anxious to see it appear on earth as a lusty, healthy
youngster. I hose wrto siaugnterea trtis tinhorn
legislative babe are now attempting to place the
blame upon others. Naturally.' It would be hard
to imagine those who bungled their work so badly
ct the start having the good judgement now to
recognize their own bungling and acknowledg
ing it.
The Shingle Bill was legitimately conceived,
but with the surrounding circumstances all tend
ing to brand it with a bar sinister embossed in
raw sugar.
It happened to be the last of a long line of sug
gestions, each of its predecessors being an open
attempt to give homesteading in Hawaii the coup
de grace. For five years the administration has
been doing its best to discourage further home
steading and prevent existing homesteads from
succeeding. In this the administration received
plenty of secret encouragement. Who in Hawaii
does not know of the "vacation" trips that wound
up in the office of the secretary of the interior?
Then came the Shingle Bill, a bill that was wel
comed in principle by those who desired to find
some method whereby the war needs of the nation
for a maximum sugar output might be met and,
at the same time, the inherent right of the citizen
to become a homesteader with a fair chance to
succeed recognized and protected. ' The Shingle
Bill was aimed at only the one object, however,
that of sugar production by the plantation. All
incidental protection for homesteading was over
looked. Immediately the glaring defects of the
measure were pointed out, both in the press and
on the floor of the senate. There was no opposi
tion to the announced design of the legislation,
but there was, at once, strong opposition to the
phrasing of the bill, more from what it omitted
than to the clauses that appeared. It was an
nounced, forthwith, by its sponsors that these
faults would be remedied.
What happened? The bill was turned over to
attorneys representing the corporations interested.
No spokesman of the homesteaders was invited to
present their interests. The result was a redraft
of the bill that magnified every advantage given
the plantations and completely ignored every right
of the homesteader. The "improvement" of the
bill consisted in giving the plantations a mile
where the original bill gave them an ell, and in
nothing else. . , , , ... ,
The objections voiced to the original bill were
renewed and made stronger against the revised
version, whereupon a single clause was inserted
providing that the homesteader would be protect-
i ed in the sale of his cane crop, but without any
pretense that he would be or should be protected
in any way while bringing such cane to maturity.
If those back of this bill had been sincerely
desirous of securing justice for prospective home
steaders, why did they not invite some recognized
representative of the homesteading interests, such
as Judge Metzger of Hilo or II. W. Broadbent
of Kauai, to appear and speak for the homestead
ers? If is ridiculous to suppose that the average
prospective homesteader would appear before a
legislative committee to face the legal battery of
the corporations.
The result was a bill sent to the house so one
sided that it would have to be completelv redrafted
to ensure fairness, sent in that form despite ad
vance protests from the representatives and in the
lace of the generally adverse criticism of the pub
lic. That the house has indefinitely postponed
consideration of the measure is only what might
have been expected.
You can't fool all the people all the tune, espe
cially when you try to fool them about the same
thing in the same old wav. Am fair measure
would have passed as an emergenev bill, because
the house members are ju-t .is patrioticallv anxi
ous to ensure the sugar supply as are the senators.
When patriotism appear- onlv as a plain cloak,
;s it did in the bill presented, however, invoking
it is naturally resented.

Unyielding Hearts
nnHE WAR," says Secretary Baker in Haiti
A more, is not about a hill or a line or a
sector. The line may break, but Germany will
not win. Germany can win only by breaking the
hearts of France, and the I nited States. That is
entirely impossible.-"
Secretary Baker is an able and eloquent man.
One does not have to travel to Baltimore, how
ever, to hear the fact whiih he so finely expressed
put in words of identical meaning and of the same
uiiiet elomience. One heir- it cerv where. "Have

Baker tells us. not a I rcin Iiumii had bet n driven

Product Which Is Great

The resolution proposed la the house
by Representative William E. Mile
that the Board of Public Works should
investigate th.,poibility of, making
cement-on the Islands for the uae'in
government project, called attention
to the possibility of developing a new
bailing-industry which will prove
great saving to the Territory. Maui
has beenr making a very good quality of
eement for some time and there are at
present private companies on Oahu and
Hawaii who are investigating th possi
bility f going into similar project on
those island.
The aneeeea of the eement business
on Maui haa not been very widely
known ia the Islands, but it i claimed
now that cement can be made by the
Maol Agriculture- 'Company at their
plant at Pairn for one-third of what it
cost to ship the product from the
Coast. While the Maul plant i small
and produce barely enough for local
use, it haa proved the feaibility of
eement manufacture in the Island. At
first the produet waa not of a good
grade, but later it waa found that th
one ingredient lacked waa silica. This
added, a first grade eement wa pro
duced. . Now t Haiku and Paia plan

Much Agitated and Interminably
Delayed Waikiki Project Prom
ises To Become Reality
With the passage of Senate Bill 23
in both houses of the legislature yes
terday, legislation for the reclamation
of the Waikiki swamps, agitation for
which has extended over a number of
years, haa come to a head and in the
event that the Governor signs tb meas
ure, work will be oommenced shortly
on a public works- project that mean
much to the heaita an, sanitation oi
this city as well as enhancing the
beauty and landscape of the Waikiki
district.
This bill, which passed the senate
yesterday, after having been amended
alightly in the house, carries an ap
propriation of 41MJ,U(, which is es
timated will cover the payment of the
first unit, of the work, shortly to be
commenced.
Hurveys have been mado by the board
of public works aud all that remains
for this project to become a reality, is
the advertising pf bids and awarding
of contracts.
The project calls for the dredging
of a cliunnel from the sea through the
Fort De Runny property and thence to
a point annul a mile mausa oi xvaua
kaun Avenue through the Waikiki
swamp. Tin- channel will ultimately
be 25l feet wide and thirty-six feet
deep. The material taken from this
excavation will be used to fill in the
adjacent land and raise it above sea
level. It is estimated that more than
700 scrci of Innd will thus be reclaim
ed. In addition to its being a much
needed sanitary measure, the projoct,
when completed, gives unlimited possi
bilities for one of the most beautiful
pnrka in the world, as a miniature
Venice eould be easily constructed with
a net work of minor canals, which
could be dredged at little expense.

Basement Floor Being Paved
With Concrete and Numerous
Minor Repairs Made
Work on the national guard armory
costing approximately $6500 is now
being done by the department of pub-
lie works. The principal feature of
the work is th paving or the base
ment floor, which heretofore has had
no paving but dirt. In this work some
.10,0110 square feet of concrete is be
ing laid. Repairs and improvements
are also being made in the omces and
in the main hall of the armory.
The concrete work has been going
on under difficulties ns the basement
of the. armory is filled with equipment
which , can not well be moved from
the building, so has to be piled from
one side to the other while the work
is going on. The concrete flooring
will be a great improvement, as up
to this time it hos been impossible
to keep equipment in good shape when
stored in the company room ia the
basement because of the dampness.

"I hope you have a big entry list
and are going to have a fine show,"
Bradshaw writes. "I am wondering
how many of my old friends, who ex
hibited in the last show at Honolulu,
will be in the coming event."
Very Busy Lately
Bradshaw, as already told in these
columns, has passed upon the merit of
canines in at least three big kennel
shows on the Coast this spring; the
first at Los Angeles in March, the sec
ond at Golden (late Park, Han Fran
cisco, early this month, and the Van
couver exhibition, which he has just
left to come to Honolulu.
Kntries are coming in for the Fair 'a

known that many owners have not fil
ed their lists yet. All are urged by
Hocretary Sharp to send in the entries
as quickly as possible, so that the com
mittee will be able to muke a good
report on show prospects to the Coast
expert on the lutter's arrival here.
Want to Know? Ask Sharp
If owners liavp any questions to asV
concerning rules or premium lists or
methods of handling the dogs they are
urged to get in touch with the show

House Tables Senate Bill ' But
Take Action To Keep Propo
sal Alive For Regular Session
While o further cbnrire exists that
anything siil W dore at the spcriul
jessioa of the'legis'ature toi-ard hiving
the Territory quire Washington Place
as sin executive amiisioii, for th sen
ate's bill to buy the property ns
killed promptly in Cue house yesterd.iv,
af move is to be made at the closing
session tomorrow to keep the project
alive until the regular session. It is
planned to do this in a resolution that
will be offered by Representative An
drew providing, for an investigation of
tho. title of the property, the right of
the Domini minors, and other ques
tiorr of the kind.
The hill that was passed in the son
ate provided that Washington Place
should be acquired at an outlay that
should not exceed 30,000. The bill
came in for opposition from Repre
sent stives Andrews and .Tarrett when
it reached the house yesterday. It was
contended that the purchase of the
property could not be regarded in the
light of emergency legislation and it
was also held that the bill had been
held back ton long and that nd action
should be taken until a full investigfl
tion of the matter had1 been made. The
house then tabled the bill.
Neither favoring nor opposing ine
project, Representative Andrews sniil
afterwards that he felt the proposal to
buy Washington Place was one worthy
of consideration and said he intended
to introduce at the closing session a
resolution drawn to have a full in
quiry made of all facts in connection
with the property so that the informn
tion could be placed before the legis
lators at the next regular session.
Action that the legislature has taken
in the matter probably means thit hope
of ending litigation over the Queen's
estate out of court is now gone. Prince
Kuhio, who is seeking to have the
Queen 's will set aside and break the
Liliuokalnni trust, was one of the prime
movers in the project of having the
government take over Washington
Place as an executive mansion and as
a memorial to the Queen. He said
that if the trustees of the Lil' iokalani
trust would give the property to the
Territory for these purposes and make
certain other property settlements with
him, he would withdraw his suits, which
are scheduled for hearing next week.
As the property was not transferred.
however, it is understood thnt the
court fight will proceed.

Women Don Overalls
Io Kao District
To Help Win War
Nearly every woman in Kau district,
Island of Hawaii, has donned the ser
viceable overalls and is engaged in in
tensive gardening and small farming
to increase the output of food prod
uts. Miss Bertha Ben Taylor, super
vising principal of the school depart
ment for West Hawaii, has reported to
the food commission thnt the entire
district is unusually enthusiastic over
the food conservation and food produc
tion campaign.
One of the reasons for women adopt
ing the overalls was the necessity for
a local production of nearly all food
products for home consumption. This
resulted in a rush of the women to
the plantation stores and the Oriental
haberdasheries to buy the familiar blue
denim working clothes.
Down in Kau they were not fastidious
about the cut of the overalls. i r
whether they had slashes here and
frills there. They just wanted the
roomy garments which the men we:ir
in the machinery sections of the milli
nnd on the railroads, overalls vith
plenty of room, no matter whether they
looked "nice" or looked well from
a mirror standpoint.
Miss Taylor reports that more garden
truck has been planted throughout the
district in the last three months than
Among the improvements to be made had been planted in eighteen years hi
a,t the present time is a concrete fence
at the mauka end of the armory, shut
