Hail At Several
Places On Island
The west end of Maul was visited
by quite a shower of hail at 2:30
Tuesday afternoon. The shower came
on suddenly and lasted for fully ten
minutes. At Hana the grass and
roads were covered with the stones,
and there was great fun after the
shower gathering them up. The
stone3 were of various sizes, most of
them being about the size of a pige
on's egg, although some were larger.
When tne snower siarteu peuim- m
tho open darted for cover. Then
there was a rattling upon the roofs
which brought everybody to the doors
to see. Many had never seen hail
before, and to them it was a wonder
ful sight. The shower reached all of
the neighboring settlements.
Vegetable gardens were beaten up
slightly, but the damage was very

central Maui, being heaviest, perhaps,

Honolulu Mayor Fern replies to General Wisser and pledges his
fullest co-operation in carrying out the city's part of the duty in keep
ing temptations from the path of soldiers, but states that a majority of
the allegations complained of are Federal offenses. Officials refuse to
do their full duty, while the army now likewise declines to give the
necessary assistance. He says that the General is saddling upon the
municipality the blame for failures of Federal officials to carry out
the law and for the failure of the army to co-operate with the police,
lie asks Wisser to inform him what the army is doing and what as
ristance may be expected. He wants to know why Wisser regards
soldiers as above doing necessary police work when the safety of other
soldiers is involved.
City Attorney A. M. Brown says that his and the detective depart
ments are ready to proceed with the work of cleaning up the city, even
if the supervisors refuse the appropriations asked. The municipal af

Motherhood, And The Home "t
With motherhood and the home as
the theme of his sermon last Sunday
morning, at the Church of the Good
Shepherd, Rev. J. Charles Villiers,
after dwelling on the home environ
ment of JeRus, in Nazareth a place
that was a perpetual temptation to
wrong thought and wrong doing,
said: I am led to press motherhood
and the home as a centre of a true
environment, because we are living
In an age when much is being said
and written in disparagement of
motherhood and of the home. Even
in the name of religion, and morality,
suggestions are being made in one
quarter and another, which, if put In
to practice, will militate against the
best in motherhood and the best
in the home, and, ultimately, under
mine and destroy society, itself.
For years, the ultra-socialists of
our own country, nnd of others, have
been advocating the abolition of
marriage; of the home; and, of the
family. For marriage they would
substitute "free love." Instead of
the home and the family life for chil
dren, they would have children rear
ed in public institutions, at the ex
pense of state. When men advocate
such things they show a misconcep
tion of things fundamental to the
social fabric. In saying this 1 have
in mind not only what is being sug
gested, and, put into practice, aa a
public policy, in Germany, but, also,
those revolutions in domestic life,
scarcely one whit behind the policy
advocated in Germany, ,whioh mon
who regard themselves as social lead
ers, and educationists, in America and
England, advocate, because they re
gard marriage, the home and the
family as stumbling blocks in a pro
gressive civilization. Their theories
are a blight on right thinking and
I know of no clergyman who holds
these theories, but I know of some
who think that the "old fashioned
home" has eone forever. nnd who
say that the fact is to be regretted,
but only with sentimental, and emo
tional regret. If the old fashioned
home, which, to my way of thinking,
is the true home, the home of mutual,
unselfish, sacrifice and service, with
which is bound up the very best Ideals
of human life, and inspiration for al
truistic service; if ths kind of home
has gone, or is going, then civlization,
and society is in the process of dis
integration, and humanity is slowly
sinking back into barbarism, or worse
Napolean, of France, we are' told,
said, many years ago, that France's
greatest need was a nation of moth
ers. I 'presume he niieant mothers
who know how to rightly bring up and
train their children; for motherhood ,
means more than bringing children
into the world. It means the train- '
ing of the child religiously, morally,
and in all such ways as to fit it for
those relations in which it is to live,
and move, and have its being.
Perhaps Napolean had in mind,
when he spoke of te , spirit of
"Race Suicide" .which'. had.
even in . ins uay, us grip upon
the French nation. A French writer
has recently said that but for tho
deadly grip of "Race Suicide" on the
French nation, for the past half cen
tury, France would not, at the pres
ent hour, be struggling, against Ger
many, for her existence. To quote
his words: "As late as 1850, the popu
lation of France surpassed that of
Germany. When the war broke out
it had become inferior by 27 millions.
"It was", he says "to this fact the war
was really due. If the Germans had
had before them GO miilions of French
instead of 39, they would have hesit
Be that as it may, the condition
into which the French nation had
come, before the war, in this respect,
was one which no nation should
covet. And, yet, on the plea that
"quality justifies it" much of the best
native American and English life
seems likely to fall victim to it.
Society, and, indeed, civilization, as
a whole has many problems before It
to solve. The solution to them, how
ever, is to be found in any theory
which tempers with marriage, the
home, or family life. These bring
moral influences into play which, we
they non-existent, would be wanting.
