Christia4ls.;:;-v;;:',:J;;;; : - ; "McCandlcss For Governor" L. U McCandless, who aspires to be governor of this territory, is notorious for his blocking and at tempted blocking of public improvements. The city attorney's office now is preparing a letter to McCandless declaring that unless be pays the frontage-tax assessment for the paving of Beretania street, action will be taken to sell the property at public auction. McCandless fought the Beretania street improve ment by every means in his power, but the obvious welfare of the city and public sentiment defeated his obstinate efTorts to kill the improvement project. McCandless may secure the indorsement of "the party" at a' Democratic luau run by his henchmen ; be may secure the indorsement of party committees made up largely of men controlled by him and his henchmen; he may have the backing of the politi cians whom he has largely supported for years but what indorsement does Hawaii as a whole give a man who tries to put himself above the law and community improvement? PATRIOTIC WORK BY THE SCHOOLS. "7 A high school of the territory which is combining book education with practical patriotism is the Kauai High and Grammar school at Lihue, Kauai, Here the" progressive -principal, Mr. W. C. Avery, has stimulated interest In many healthful activities, from gardening to soccer, from baseball to flag drills, and the academic courses have not suffered. In fact, judging by the results, the combination is a benefit ; Mention of the graduation exercises in Kauai cor respondence on Page 12 today shows the up-to-date nature of the program. Patriotic songs and drills had. a prominent place upon it. President Patter son of the Kauai Chamber of Commerce delivered an address on Patriotism" and Lieut Oonser, the regular army, bfflcer who is a national guard in structor on the island, gave a talk to the boys on the importance of physical and moral discipline. As one of. the features, there were presented the Certificates ' of Honor won by the school and by Manuel Oouveia, a pupil for excellence of work in the Star.Bulletin,s 19lf School Harden Contest These certificates, won by a large number of schools and pupils throughout the territory, were sent out in time to reach the schools just before the close of the tern, and their presentation has been one of the happiest and most notable features of the entire gar den contest ; It the Kauai High closing exercises, the award was a popular feature, Comparatively little is heard about the work be ing done by" the schools outside Honolulu, yet there are many fine achievement! to. their "credit. They are doing theft sliare, sometimes humbly, in out-of-the-way spots; for. the upbuilding of Hawaii. To every teacher j&dd every pupil doing his or her part painstakingly; I conscientiously and patriotically, there belongs credit for the advancement of the ter-ritory.V;-,' ,.a' :; - -- ' - A WAR-TARX DENIED. The Associated Press takes occasion to deny a story recently current in Japan, and to some extent hr the United States concerning probable use of Japanese troops in Siberia. The. story, which eman ated from Russia, was that if Russia made separate peace with Germany, Japanese troops would occupy Siberia. It was prominently printed in the Japa-. nese, press and promptly characterized as absurd by the Japanese foreign office." , ' . ' Z The Japanese press thinks that the report was probably fabricated for the purpose, of suppressing the peace movement brewing among Jhe Russian pecleVk;:'';-.:Vr;;'; :: ,:::." " ; The report declared ' that if Russia relaxed her military efforts sh&' would be threatened with seri ous danger from Japan l and that according to a treaty -concluded with the Entente powers Japan would have the right to occupy all Siberia as far as the Ural mountains. .

HONOLULU JAPANESE TO DO THEIR 'Bir BY AIDING U. 3. RED CROSS That they be allowed to help the United States by donating a large sum to the Red Cross fund, was the request made Monday afternoon by leading Japanese businessmen at a meeting held with the Pan-American Union at the Laniakea. The spokesman for the Japanese was T. Hada, who said that as the Japanese could not fight for the Unit ed States they had chosen the Red Cross as the best means of giving aid. The meeting was presided over by former Governor Walter P. Frear. while W. R. Castle, vice-president of the Pan-Pacific Union, acted as spokesman. The Japanese delegates beside Hata were M. Kawakatsu. manager of the Sumitomo Bank; T. Horinichi, pineap ple grower, S. Takahashi, merchant, and T. Ishii, who raised 960,000 tor the Red Cross during the RussWap anese war. The Japanese were assured of the support of the Pan-Pacific Union by W. TL Castle. He said E. D. Tenney had called a meeting for today to for ward a request to Washington that a branch of the Red Cross be establish ed in Hawaii and in view of the Jap anese request they certainly would be made a unit of the proposed Ha waii branch. The old University Club building on the Hawaiian. Hotel grounds was then offered to the Pan-Pacifia Club by W. A. Horn, through Alexander Hume Ford, and accepted, and following the luncheon the meeting adjourned to this building. The front part of the building will be devoted to Red Cross men workers and the lanais in the rear to the women, who" are preparing material for. the hospitals and sol diers. . : E. W. Christmas later in the day announced that half the. money from the sale of his pictures in the coming artists' exhibit would be given to the work. ' GOVERNOR STILL ESIRES CENTER Within a, few days Governor Pink ham intends to make public an ex pression of his opinion as to the pro posed removal of the circuit and sup reme courts from the Judiciary build ing and the conversion of that struc ture into a city hall. Letters sent to Chief Justice A. G. M. Robertson. last week contain the emphatic protests of Circuit Judges Ashford, Kemp and Heen against the proposed removal, and also against the proposed plan to erect a circuit and supreme court building in the Capitol grounds. Governor Pinkham declares that he still adheres to his former plans for the creation of a civic center -in the vicinity of the Capitol and jHdfciaryi buildings, i but-says he proposes to' wait until, he sees, the plan for the- new rederal Dutming neiore laaing further step forward. , LITTLE INTERVIEWS f PURSER H.
