HONOLULU STAR-BULLETIN; WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1917.
rf -if tm mmm i JSIX wumtm RILEY H. ALLEN EDITOR I WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 24, 1917, Have You a Liberty Bond Have you a LiUrtv Bond in your boim-? If eo you are taking a turn at the thumb kivwh that will effectually brin? this calamitous reign of barbarism and savagery by German kultur 10 im mediate i nd. and that end will lie hailed with j.ro found thankfulness by the civilized nation of the Morld. In following the chronicles of this war, more especially the part played by Germany, it is almost unbelievable that human beings, even in a state of semi -savagery, ould Ik m debased, so brutal, so absolutely diabolical as the Prussian and his allies have been. The record written is of a war such as lias not lecu seen since the world bogan. It is a i:rw'iwr revelation to the world on the part of t ci - - certain of God's creatures supposed to be endowed I with culture, training, humauitariauism, gentleness, j. high character and fineness of feeling, but found to be devoid of every instinct that goes to make a man. The whole civilized world has raised its hands in J. abhorrence at the atroeijjics and diabolical actions of the German army. ; During the first month! of the war. when reports 3 -came across the ocean telling us of the deviltry of iho Iluns, we said that there must be some exaggera tion: it could not be true. The horrible stories charged German soldiers with slaying noncombat ants in accordance with a cold blooded decree to kill men, women and children as a means of obtain ing military advantage. This decree sent a thou sand innocent people to their death in the sinking ! of the Lusitauia; this atrocity, or more properly speaking, cold-blooded murder, included many little I 'children. While the Savior said, "Suffer little chil- J dren to come unto Me," it is not thought that he in j tended they should be sent via German Lultur and several miles of salt water. Think of it! Little ! "children, drowned, murdered, and their murderer still lives. The world stood aghast, horrified, pnbclieving and .'demanded proofs. These were furnished by the ! most important and most responsible committee the '.world has ever called together. This committee says: " "It Is proved ; "1. That thero were in many rarts of Belgium del- ; Iberate and systematically organized massacres of the I civil population, accompanied 'by many isolated mur - ders and other outrages." i -2. That in the conduct of war generally innocent civilians, both men and women, were murdered in large numbers, women violated and children mur dered. "3. That looting, house burning, and the wanton destruction of property were ordered and counte : nanced by the officers of the German army. That ' elaborate provision bad been made for systematic in- cendiarism at the very outbreak of the war, and that ! the burnings and destruction were frequent where no ' military necessity could be alleged, being, indeed, part - of a system of general terrorization. M4. That the rules and usages of war were fre quently broken, particularly'by the using of civilians, I Including women and children, as a shield for advanc ; ing forces exposed to fire, to a less degree by the killing and wounding of prisoners, and in the frequent i abuse of the Red Cross and the white flag." i Add to that the sinking of hospital ships at sight, t 'the murder of Capt. Fryatt, the execution of Nurse ; Cavell, the cruel deportations of men and women from Belgium and France; these and other atrocities have opened the eyes of the world to the corrupted soul of Germany, and compelled a united and universal con- detonation of Its aims and policy, its ambitions and spirit Have you a Liberty Bond in your home? ' This is Liberty Bond Day, and the opportunity offers for you to put yourself on record. , t Where Does Honolulu Stand? Now the secretary of the Tiavy adds his appeal to "the citizens of the country that they use every effort ' to keep their towns clean and thus protect the men of the navy from the destruction wrought by vice. ' This follows the declaration of the president and ihe appeal of the secretary of war. I What further can be required to arouse the citi zens of Honolulu to a realization of the' fact that "any failure to fight vice at every point is a distinct jmd well understood failure to attack the enemies of this country? It is elackerisin of the worst type. ; And what are the people of Honolulu going to do .about it? What is the grand jury going to do about it? The grand jury acting under a special charge from Judge Heen. . : :y " What is the police department going to do about it?; - . What 6ort of an aggregation of American citizens Oiid officials have we here in Honolulu, anyway? ; Have they moral courage and are they honest and square? ., '. Or, are they cowards and practically if not actu ally in league with vice? It is a fair question. Your country calls. ! What i your ; answer?--, A Japanese American Opportunity The Star-Kulletiu has a Migestion for the JapancM'-Aincrirans f ''''s 4,,.v ;HM' f 111 " 'emiory iti connection with tlx m-xt -ampaiu fur the third Liberty Loan dotation that will no doubt follow, on or before the tirst of the new year. This paper believes that the American citizen of Japanese parentage should organize a Mib-coinniit-tco of the Liberty Loan force.6 and go out into the campaign with the dotinite purpose of presenting the American side of the Libertv l&nml purchase to the Japanese speaking people. Indications are that the rank and tile of the .Japa nese are apathetic about the Liberty Honds. This ought not to be and it need not continue if the leaders of the city will take the subject iu hand and tackle it with vigorous force and mat 11 re. judg ment. Japanese officials and Japanese business leaders have cooperated at every joiut. This work could be broadened and made more effective by a Hying squadron of Lilerty Bond en thusiasts loaded with information and sincere pur pose. The Liberty Loan needs aggressive advertis ing and enthusiastic salesmanship among the Japa: uese speaking people. The men best fitted to undertake this phase of the campaign arc the young American citizens of Japanese parentage, graduates of our schools, allied with the present and the future of the islands and our common country. It is an opportunity for the young men and possibly the young women, and anyone who has attended the graduating exercises of the local high schools knows that the men. the women and the intelligence are available. It should be borne in mind that the war has just begun. The two Liberty Bond sales are but the preliminaries. The real campaign has yet to come. Therefore, the ground work should be laid on the broadest possible basis and every American citizen should be brought into action. The service is not only for the country. The man who does the work gains much more than he gives, rie adds to his own self-respect, he better understands the honor and duty of Americanism. if a V o 4 HOW ABOUT IT, CHARLEY? THEV'RE telling this one about Charles G. Heiser, Jr.. of the Trent Trust Co.. and y.hi'c the story may not te frur, it's too coo'l to ras-' iH. It teems that a rather lretty young uoman dropped into the Trent Trust Co. office the other morning and Charley's desk being right near tlie door she turned to him and in a very business like manner said : 1 wish to set a Liberty loan bond tor my husband."' Now Charley was busy and as hU glasses were on the table, instead of f'cing on his no.- lie did not note the beauty of the customer, other wise he probably wouldn't havo answered in such a disinterested business-like tone. "What size, please?'' he asked. Why, 1 don't believe I know ex actly," replied the fair customer, "1)1: t he wears a 1" collar.'' Inspecting Street Work At the annual meeting of the Automobile Club held recently the statement was made that Super visor JJott-Smith has employed at his own expense an inspector to observe the character of the work being done on the street construction jobs of the city. Froni time to time, the suggestion has been made that proper protection of the public requires that some civic organization should employ an inspector of its own, an 'indeieudent inspector" so-called. The report of the Manoa Improvement Club com mittee indicates that the people of thai district would have done well to be careful before as well as after the roads were built. Itut the exhibition of a supervisor employing his own inspector is an eyeopeuer which indicates that either independent inspection or a reorganization of the city and county management is a necessity. If it is possible to secure inspection that is inde pendent would not the Chamber of Commerce be the projer organization to undertake a well-financed and carefully-planned scheme under whicli the road construction of the next two years shall be assured "independent inspection." Or, is the Chamber of Commerce tied up to bitulithic and other forms of 6treet material so that even its judgment is warjed? If the Chamber of Commerce can't the Automo bile Club should. If Japan had done nothing more than score a toll of forty submarines in the Mediterranean she would be entitled to high position among the allies for world freedom. This number of undersea en gines of piracy wiped out means an enormous ton nage of shipping saved. That the latent power of Russia is not all lost to the cause of liberty may be inferred from the fact that the government of that country is removing the munition factories from l'etrograd to "soiue 0"' lesjs exiosed to possible danger. V PATRIOTIC SEW -YORK REPUBLICANS. 1 . . - ' The Republican county committee of New York tity. lias repudiated the man nominated for mayor at the Republican primaries and given its support to the .popular candidacy of Mayor Mitchell, who runs on a nori-partisau ticket. Why dot' the ..Republican committee break frJ5u the regularity of ihe primary resuit? For the plain patriotic reason that the members oMhis organization place the honor of their city above the rule of thumb that is attempted by mani pulators of iK)litice, who aim first to serve their selfish ends through' regularity, and then look after the welfare of the city, -if-if happens to be ccuvc- Ilalf of the Liberty Loan subscribed before the dawn of Lilcrty Day is fairly good assurance that there will be no deficiency tonight. Big capital comes in at the heel of the hunt, as every minute saved means interest gained. Russia has plenty of food for two years, accord ing to Red Cross Commissioner Billings. She is also giving new evidence of possessing some fight."' MUTTON FINDS NEff j LICENSE INSPECTOR fZ II lil.T-! TON lias added a new3bokYJ tm library.

Baron von Rcchlinghausen, even without his Sinn Fein dupe, would have been a pretty good secret service catch for oue dav. Think over the bond question.

The other day a soldier at Shatter called up the inspector's of fice and informed him that he had gotten hold of a startling -book, re vealing tho innermost secrets of a moonshiner's alcoholic life. It would bo worth the inspector's while, said the soldier, to take a look at the book, The informant hinted that it con tained a startling formula which might aid the inspector in his hunt for "blind pigs," So Mr. Hutton collected some of his squad, and proceeded to Shatter to get the book. The soldier greeted him at the barracks, and placing his finger cn his lips, Bitnaled for silence. Tiptoeing their way into the big room. the men came to a cot. Lifting the jillow the soldier revealed a large book, bound in black leather. On its cover was the legend. 'The Life of a Moonshiner." Tho inspector grabbed the book and opened it. Imagine his surprise when he discovered that there were no pages in it. The inside of the book wag hollow, like a cigar bos. and where the story of the tragedy of a moonshiner's life should have been written, reposed a squat, ugly lookinR bottle, labeled, "This If the Life. Alongside the bottle was a glass, with tlie inscription, "Have One on Me The bottle was empty. 'Some stunt." said Inspector Hut- ton. "Why. that book would fool a minister. An old bootlegger could go into church with it under his arm and no one would ever know the differ ence. I'm going to add a librarian to my staff-of moonshine chasers. If there are any more books like that in circulation we'll need deputies with literary tastes to help us. Now you see what we are up against when it comes to hunting educated bootleggers." WATCH MOSQUITOES IT happened out at Schofield Bar racks, One of tho officers of the -fth Infantry, who refuses to allow his name to be used, could not sleep one night last week because of tho mosuuitoes. After several hours of restlessness his bunkic yelled "Watin ell's wrong?" "Mosquitoes biting my arms," he replied. "Well, that's simple, my dear Wat son. Take that luminous wristwatch off and the mosquitoes won't be able to find your wrist." No sooner said than done and since then there has been no more bites. GUARD TROOPS FOR EI1PME E DESIGN.

HUDDY IS CALLED BY DEATH Mrs. Hattie Kaonohiokalani Huddy, wife of James Huddy of Kilauea plan tation, died at Moloaa, Kauai, last Friday, October 19. She leaves a hus band and four young children and tho following brothers and sisters: James K. Trask of Koolau, Kauai; John Trask, Jane Trask. Nancy Trask, Mrs. Samuel Apo and Mrs. Grge 1'. Miranda, all of Honolulu. A brother. David Trask. died a few months ago. The 13th Company, Oahu. at Fort Kuger, has surpassed all previous rec ords for small arms practise by qual ifying 69 marksmen out of a company of 98. Due to the high efficiency of the non-commissioned officers of the organization and the competition made by the older men of the outfit with the recruits who just arrivei from the states leaving their respec tive colleges to jon the colors and have entered the competition with all their energy making success for them selves and giving the company tho record of the most marksmen ever made in a coast artillery organization. The 5th Company, Oahu, claimed the record a few days ago with a total of 68 marksmen. A marksman in order to qualify must make a total of 150 out of a pos sible 200 and the company average for all its men was 153, with a percentage of 74.95. The above record also speaks well of Oahu where the winds are always steady and the light perfect all day. The men all wish that Washington would take cognizance of them and pick them all out to go to France. DR. LYMAN OF KAUAI IS DEAD Word has been received here of the death of Dr. Francis A.
