PUBLIC OPINION AND OFFICIAL WASTE
' This comment comes from the report of the
commission that investigated Hawaii county's
financial tangle. It refers particularly to the
inexnisahle waste of public funds and the pos
sihle restriction on this waste:
Finally, we would say , that ; the most potent re
striction of all Is an enlightened and" Infortoed pub
lie opinion.- The basis of this is good methods of
reporting and full publicity At the right, time, v Re
strictive measures only fulfill their, purpose ade
quately in the presence of a watchful and .alert
v citizenship equipped with knowledge of essential .
details and, therefore, in a position to criticise per
formance' and demand results Intelligently.
- The observation is pertinento the situation
on Oahu in; view of the fact , that' the present
board of. supervisors has .spent hundreds of
thousands of. dollars in the last two years on
alleged street and road improvements.! 4 -
THE NAVAL SITUATION ' ON THE :
WILL PROVE THE TERRITORY'S
The little German cruiser Geier now in port
does not appear particularly formidable, but
the British cruiser Minotaur, fi fairly new and
powerful ' ship of 14,000 tons: was : ordered to
hunt down the Geier if possible before the tiny
German craft could get away from the Chinese
coast. The llampshire and the Minotaur were
. nt to Yap in the Caroline islands to bombard
the German wireless station and on their re
:rn the Minotaur made a detour to look for
;;ie Geier but failed to locate the German.
There is evidence that the presence of Ger
r.n warships in. tfje Pacific is especially dis
.licting to the admiralty offices of the Allies.

GUnAlT ATF.O CITIES DENIED.;
The territory's move to build some home
stead roads on Maiii by the use of territorial
prisoners is u move in the right direction. The
main reason why prisoners have not been used
in numbers for road-work in Hawaii before
this is that county and territorial officials con
sidered the matter from a political standpoint
fearing to lose votes if the electorate thought
citizen laborers were kept out of a job because
prisoners were set to work on the highways.
The fallacy of this .reasoning; is apparent.
Shortage of funds for road-work is a. fairly
chronic condition in Hawaii and under this con
dition the citizen laborers are out of work any
way. Many months ago this paper advocated
the use of prisoners on the roads where no cit
izen labor would be displaced. ; ?
Maui needs the highways desperately! there
is no; question about that. The homesteaders
have staked their future on the hazardous ex
periment in Haiku district. -A failure of this
experiment would not only ruin many if not
of the small farmers, but would give to the
territorial homesteading system a black eye
would discredit, the sincerity of Hawaii's ef
forts to build up American communities.

Sir: Do you consider It is fair to
supply the German warship now in
port with Australian coal, specially re
leased from ' Australia on account of
friendly relations existing between
Australia and America, snd more es
pecially in view of the fact that the
German warship is accompanied by a
collier and is not destitute of coal?
Do youfonsider It is fair to supply
meat to a German war vessel, in view
of the appeal made to Australia by the
United States re island mert supply,
and the exception made by Australia
in our favor Would not Australia be
justified in cutting off, without warn
