Let us quote you rates on a Policy. The Baldwin Bank, Ltd. Kahului Insurance Department Wailuku central committee. In all of the counties the party organization has been perfected by electing to the county committee members from the various pre cincts. In each precinct there is one or more man who is responsible for seeing that the voters are registered and that they get to the polls to cast their suffrages. Experience everywhere in political elections shows the necessity of having such workers at every polling place. The proposed change would disrupt the present organization which, on Maui at least, is working well. It would place the responsibilities for the carrying of the elections in the hands of a few men who, in the County of Maui, would have a much greater territory under their supervision than they could well look after. Aside from the political wisdom or unwisdom of the proposal it is open to objection as being contrary to the idea of county self government. In legislative and governmental affairs there is the tendency to take away from the counties powers that should be their's. The proposal means the carrying of that idea into Repub lican party affairs. The criticism is advanced that it would put party affairs in the hands of a small "political oligarchy," too. Attempted political innovations have not worked out well else where nor have they worked out when copied here in the view of many. There are not a few who feel that the old convention days were far and away preferable to the direct primary system. No matter how well satisfied one is with his environment he always wants change in his pocket. tt tt tt Tennis can hardly lose popularity Bince it doubles so often and love enters into its scoring.

There arc those who believe lie is opposed to some of the provisions iu the pending measure, especially those that throw a great burden on the banks and that he will veto it if it passes, that is permit his party to redeem its promise of passing the legislation and take on himself the onus of its failure to become a law through to. That is only a surmise, but there is a strong be lief that Harding is a big enough man to place his obligations high above his own political interests if the necessity arise.

IMPORTANT STRAW ELECTION In its issue of July 8 The Literary Digest announces that it will make a genuinely national test of the sentiment as to prohibition and the soldiers' bonus proposal, that such a poll is now actually under way. Those who remember the accuracy with which the poll made by that publication in advance of the last presidential election two years ago showed political sentiment will feel a keener interest in ; the new "straw vote. The first tabulation is to appear m the is sue of July 15 and it will be continued weekly until the final returns are in. Ten million ballots are being distributed by Literary Digest, it says, to all classes of voters in all the states and communities of the nation. Millions are sent out by mail, one in each envelope and other millions are distributed through the great industrial plants. An un-1 hampered and unbiased count and report of the result of the vote is 1 assured. As to-the ballot on prohibition there is a sufficiently wide scope for views given to make sentiment clear, three expressions being presented but as to the soldiers' bonus the result will not be so in-; dicative for it is only "yes" or "no" that can be answered and there are many who, like President Harding, favor a soldiers' bonus but want proper provision for raising of funds first and do not approve of the project as it now ponds in congress. j On prohibition the voter is asked "Do you favor the continuance and strict enforcement of the Eighteenth Amendment and the Vol stead Law?" "Do you favor a modification of the Volstead Law to permit light wines and beers?" "Do you favor the repeal of the Prohibition Amendment?" As a forecast this paper will predict that a preponderant num ber of votes will be for continuance and enforcement of the amend ment. This view is the result of observation of resubmissions of con stitutional amendments and laws in various states of the Union. There are many men who formerly enjoyed the use of alcoholic liquors, some of whom still want it for themselves, who believe that in a generation or two the results will be such that their own self denial now will be warranted. The writer has seen a mining com munity vote wet and when the dry amendment was passed vote dry by the same majority for a stronger constitutional prohibition. It may or may not be an indication of the result when it is re ported that the Manufacturers Record took a poll of 1500 persons "in various fields of activity and Sf)1 percent favored continuing prohibition. No matter how Literary Digest's poll may go, it will have a tendency to clarify the atmosphere and the magazine is to be com- Ip'' mended in its undertaking. The ordinance to keep children from playing and loitering on public highways has been passed. It should be enforced at least as , strictly as has been the traffic ordinance since passage of the latter, j All Maui motorists are delighted at the elimination of glaring head-1 lights that has resulted from the latter county law and no longer does 1 one ever see a car turned in the middle of the blocks between Mar-! ket and High streets on Main. The traffic ordinance is surely a joy forever. WE'RE TELLING YOU AGAIN THAT THE PACIFIC MUTUAL FIVE-WAY POLICY PAYS: Clip and Mail the Coupon for Additional Information. WATERHOUSE TRUST CO., LTD.

The most recent indication is seen in the reports of his response to criticism of his proposals for settlement of the coal strike and for keeping the mails moving in the railroad strike. In re gard to "commandeering" labor to keep the mails moving he is quoted as having said that the worst that could happen, if lie should pass what the law might interpret as his rights and powers would be to impeach him. It is such an attitude as Harding takes that wakens admiration no matter what may be the views of his opponents. The country has small use for the political opportunist, the man who places his own possibilities of future success over what he considers right and wrong. Should Harding commandeer labor to move the mails he would arouse bitter enmity from the more radical laborites but in the public generally there would be awakened a strong admira.ion. The President on previous occasions has been decidedly out spoken on the subject of Soldiers' Honus legislation and has indicated that he wants satisfactory ways and means of meeting payments FENCE WITH RUST YOUR only rapier in fencing with rust is Armco Ingot Iron.
