I am pleased to congratulate you on

Editor Garden Island:
Allow me to congratulate you upon the good appear
ance of your paper. Tiik Gardkn Island is a credit to
Kauai it would be in a community numerically much larger
than Kauai and composed entirely of English readers.
Typographically, the paper shows expert oversight not
often found outside the large population centers; the news
service seems to be good and I judge completely covers the
field. And what counts most in the financial analysis, the
business community seems to be taking substantial notice
of the paper, for its columns are at least proportionately
filled witli announcements that metophorically spell dollars
I have published both city and country papers myself,
and I know that a country paper so creditable as The
Gardkn Island is, is not produced in a week of play
I wish for you abundant reward for your painstaking
labor, and I believe the people of Kauai recognize and ap
preciate your effects, and will see to it that you are justly
Another contemporary writes.
We have noted the marked improvement in The Gar
dkn Island. Eroin beginning a miserably printed, un
interesting sheet, it has become a fine paper, typographi
cally, and has splendid news and editorial departments, and
oodles of ads. It is easily the best paper outside of Hono
lulu and deserves all the success it is enjoying since the
present energetic manager and able editor took it.
A Teachers' Gommitee Writes:
"I want to tell you how much we ap
preciate the policy of The Garden Is
land. The war for justice which it is
carrying on i.i behalf of the teachers rings
with sincerity and the facts are so clearly
put as t convince your readers that to
the G rden Island, the teachers have
mu , reason to feel grateful as a cham
p: .of their interests."
Those who have been instrumental
in placing the Garden Island on the plain
that it now occupies deserve consider
able credit. The Bulletin extends con
