"BY THE PRESIDENT-' OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
A PROCLAMATION. , u ,
"It has long been the. honored custom of our people to turn In the fruitful
autumn of the year in praise and thanksgiving to Almighty God for His many
blessings and mercies to us as a Nation. That custom we cam follow, now,
even in the midst of the tragedy of a world shaken by war and immeasurable
HisaKtpr. in the midst of sorrow and treat neril. because even amidst the
darkness that has gathered about us. we can see the great blessings God has J
bestowed upon us, blessings that are better than mere peace of mind and
prosperity of enterprise. i
"We have been given the opportunity to serve mankind as we once served
ourselves in the great day of our Declaration of Independence, by taking up
arms against a tyranny that threatened to master and debase men every
where, and joining with other free peoples in demanding for all the nations
of the world what we then demanded and obtained for ourselves. In this
day of the revelation of our duty not only to defend our own rights as a
nation, but to defend also the rights of free men throughout the world, there
has been vouchsafed us In full and inspiring measure the resolution and spirit
of united action. We have been brought to one mind and purpose. A new
vigor of common counsel and common action has been revealed in us. Ve
should especially thank GocF that in such circumstances, in the midst of the
greatest enterprise the spirits of man have ever entered upon, we have, if
we but observe a reasonable and practicable economy, abundance with which
to supply the needs of those associated with us, as well as our own. A new
light shines about us. The great duties of a day awaken a new and greater
national spirit in us. We shall never again be divided or wonder what stuff
we are made of. ' , . ,
"And while we render thanks for these-things, let us pray Almighty God
that in all humbleness of spirit we may look always to Him for guidance;
that we may be kept constant in the spirit and purpose of service; that by His
grace our minds may be directed and our hands strengthened; -and that In
His good time liberty and security and peace and the comradeship of a
common justice may be vouchsafed all the nations of the earth
"Wherefore I Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States of
America, do hereby designate Thursday, the twenty-ninth day or November
next as a day of thanksgiving and prayer, and invite the people throughout
the land to cease upon that day from their ordinary occupations and In thir
several homes and places of worship to render thanks to God, the great ruler

Failure by he commissary department to provide food for the Fili

harder to bear. Tears and laughter
and good-luck wishes intermingled
and thousands remained on the pier
waving farewell to the little specks of
fluttering handkerchiefs on board the
Maui long after the ship had passed
from the wharf.
The pier, was dense with people
shortly after 9 o clock, on hand for the
occasion, and it was with difficulty
that the 22 members of the congres
sional party were able to make their
way through the crowd to the gang
planks The lei sellers did a land office
business and some off the legislators
almost staggered under the burden of
flowers and wreaths placed about their

during the half-hour prior to sailing
time shaking hands with the. numer
ous friends they had made during
their brief visit.
It was not until the two sharp blasts
of the whistle warned them to get
aboard that they hurried forward to
the gangplank. Here Governor Lucius
E. Pinkham, representatives of the
territorial, civic and county govern

navy were on hand for a final hand
shake and well wishes. And when the

PATRQL SHIPS FAIL TO
FIND THOR'S CREW
Official reports, received by the
Star-Bulletin late this afternoon from
the naval authorities and other offic
ial sources indicate that patrol ships
have not yet picked up any survivors
of the foundered steamer Thor, which
wirelessed for help last Friday night.
Earlier reports this afternoon were
to the effect that a patrol 11 ship had
found the second boatload of survivors
?nd had fanded them on Kauai. This
eport is apparently unfounded and
'incorrect, according to : later advices.

Is It our tauil mat we are in ine
