Kinney On War Path
'' The moHt pestiferous sample of the
m mis homo is the mule of the HpocieM
mIio haunts Honolulu hnArdinj! hoiion
: n,l knocks the outside islands to the
in ' teachers, '
some heat.
,:1 l - .:k 1
saol Mr. Kinnev, with 1
" These silly but harmful pests toll ,
these teachers that thev should not );o !
to this ,,r that place and (ive a lot of
reasons which are far from the truth.
They simply senre the j;irls and have
I n the cause of several refusing to I
teach unless thev are located on this
island. 1
"The department has not and nil,
not send nnv woman teacher to any lo
cahty which is unfit and extra pains
are taken to place, particularly the new
1111 1 n li n,l teachers, in location which
v ill be congenial for them even more
o than such environments to which
thev were accustomed on the mainland.
"I intend to take this matter up
with the promotion committee, the
chamber of commerce, and other bodies,
for this knocking of the outside dis
tricts has got to stop. I have a few
of these knockers in mind and if they
do not change their tactics I shall take
the matter up personally with their
employers and see what comes of it."
Favor Increase, In Pay
" Do you think, Mr. Kinney, that the
coming territorial legislature will do
nnvthing toward increasing the pay of
teachers in some manner commensurate
with the higher cost of livingt" the
siiperinteiiilent was asked.
"Well. I don't know, hut I hope
something will be done,'' he replied.
"The tendency throughout the main
land is to increase the pay of teachers
in a manner that thev will be able to
meet the large increase in the cost of
practically all everydav necessities. In
spite of the ten percent raise voted
bv the legislature a ear and a half 1
ago many I in al teachers, particularly
the mote poorly paid, find it almost
impossible to meet expenses and one;
must consider that teachers, in order
to be more effective ill their calling,
must live up to certain standard" less 1
required in some other walk:' of life, I
I am of the opinion that something
more should be done for them. However.
Mms is something the teachers are toi
hilo' ut, themselves, probably through
their district organizations.
" The legislature has never been nig
g.'inllv 111 a pprnpriat huh for the school
1 fi'tment and if the proper facts are
' rt hconi 1 ng I ame sure the coming sen
s.on will do what is proper in the piem

few weeks ago, formerly opened the
consulate offices in the Klite building
on September 1, and i at preaent
gathering data on the commercial and
shipping facilities afforded by the
Inlands, together with the output of
sugar, pineapples and other commodi
ties, which will be compiled for official
reference to hi government at Havana.
The new consul looks forward to the
conclusion of the world war for the op
portunity to establish close relationa
between Havana und Honolulu, via the
1'anama Canal, believing that the great
tourist travel which will pass from the
Atlantic to the l'acific, and vice versa,
will bring the two capitals into close
commercial communion.
Tt was for this purpose that Cuba
has begun the establishment of a china
of consulates throughout the l'acific. in
eluding Jnpan.
In a letter which the ctinaul has just
sent out to all business firms he says:
"I hhall be glad to supply you with
any data and information that will
tend to bring you and my country into

ON FIVE YEAR WAR
A five years' war is the basis for all
cnii serv a t ion and other war plans in
Washington says Col. Howard Hath
away, collector of internal revenue, who
has returned from h mainland tour,
during which he visited his former
Inline in Lveretj Washington, and the
natinniil capital ' ': ''
" TW ilinf'of the uaf'U; put lo,,kf,,
for until lil'J'l, although there is always
the hope it will end in 11)(1," he says.
Colonel Hathawsv returned from his
summer visit to Washington with the
nsseition he would never again coin
"biin of the heat in Honolulu. He
says it was so hot in Washington that
von could fry a beefstak on the side
"alls, ''it- von were esreful to turn
it over before it burned."
The internal revenue collector savs
that profited ing is to be made a very
iincoin f ortalde profession during the
remainder of the war. He thinks the
li-v revenue bill will follow the lilies of
the nrescnt ad, but will double the
ImutncN und excess profit taxes. He
snvs the greatest increase in taxes will
be placed upon those who are making
great deal of money out of the
world's conflict,
