IK PRINCE By Henry Waiau Prince Kuhio a Republican Can-' date to Congress made an appear ance before a mass of Lihueites and made very interesting remarks concerning the future -interest of the Territory last Thursday. t Kuhio based his remarks chiefly upon Americanizing Hawaii. -To Americanize Hawaii is to im port European people, for they will produce better American Citizen than the Asiatics. The allowing o f the aliens t o work on the plantations will allow the ounger generations of whom h e stated that in ten years hence will control two thirds of the majority of voters o f . the Territory. To depend on younger generation o f Jaliens it o work on the plantation ' in the future will be a theory of doubt, for Hawaii is educating them and to go back irjto the plantation and work will onlv be a menace to their' proper education. W.h a t shall they do? They will leav. the plantation and start 'Other business that will injure the work ing capacity of the American peo ple, i , The failure of introducing classi fied people to this Territory was due to . p o o r administration. Ten years since annexation, the administration o f today is just the ( same of ten years ago. No improvement has been made there upon. We are to fight for better administration that will treat the rich and the poor alike. Administration that will encouFi aged homesteaders. We are t6 fight for better administration to place this little Territory in a rec ord that they can rule themselves. Now we are certainly net to be blamed by Congress for thia poor administration, because they have appointed the man where we have no right to do it. We are to fight for the protection of the sugar in dustry that makes this little Terri tory. The administration of today gives poorjresults to homesteaders the distributing of the three, four, five, more or less acres to home steaders of today is considered a failure. How canany man or men make a living on three acres of land. Why isn't the full adminis tration of the Territory enforced Notice to Parents I will be at the Lihue Public school on Wednesday Oct. 23, at one o'clock for the purpose of 1 vaccinating all children who have not yet been vaccinated. I will be at the Ilanamaulu school, Thurs day, Oct. 24, at one .o'clock, for the same purpose. Parents are hereby notified to have their children in attendance. Dr. Thompson, Lihue, Kauai, Oct. 16, 1912. - NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS In accordance w i t h the postal laws governing second class mail matter i. e., "not more than three copies of any newspaper can be mailed to any unpaid subscriber etc., we beg to inform subscribers to the Garden Island that ten days after the receipt of a bill for their subscription, if the amount is not paid, the paper will 1m.- discontinued without further notice. The Editor. AT THE LIE ILL to its full extent. The homesteads law requires each .homesteader to acquire 85 acres of land doesn't it. The law is a vefy good one but what . 'about the" administration, Docs it enforce the law? Its a won der that to introduce good class of people in this Territory proved to be a serious problem, whose facts was wholly due to poor adminis tration. . . ' - Tile latest, pitiful event that occurred witli tlie Portuguese at Punchbowl, proves to be a very mean piece of woik, that was per formed bv the governor. Instead of giving time to homesteaders he cut them up and sold Ihem to those who can afford t o pay for them. To protect thejnterest of the home steaders, it is absolutely necessary to constitute a body of commission that will make definite charges, to equally share the profit between the homtsteader and the mill owner or plantation. The sugar tariff that was endorsed by., the Democratic party is very bad for it will hinder the progress of our sugar industry. vc want to have people like our selves, fiyit will support theinterest of the TerrTtor in every way like Americans.. .'.Andt4 be able to do this, we are to fight to.. better'' ad ministration tha't wilt support everyone . - the. satnea.ii d like. manner and by doing so we be able to be class with classified people and we dont have to depend altogether on the aliens for further maintenance of our sugar ndustry. ' A question concerning the con structing o f Nawiiiwili Harbor was answered by" Kuhio. The in troducing of the bill for Nawiiiwili Harbor four years ago was a fail u r e in e a c 1 and every time the bill was presented. The troubje was due to the Kauaites. They kept on nagging and chew ing for two place s and consequently the work was delay ed. The allowing- of an appro priation permits engineers to in vestigate the Nawiiiwili suppose harbor a few months ago. It is this one thing that Kauai ought to do, get together, pull together and by have a unanimous approval on one certain port, you will get it very quick. But to keep on fight ng for a place to build your har bor it will take a long rnn for; it.

The world is buckling on the fine armor -of modem research and knowledge and is sending its combined strength into the field against ttilierculosis. Tuberculosis, an ancient enemy o f mankind, which for thousands of years has ruled master over the fate of thousands of lives has been an in exorable task-maker with the power o f the high justice, the middle and the low, and there has been no appeal. Armed insur rection against it is an incident of modernity, a. matter of only a few years. I wish to impress you with the fact that in Hawaii, the board of h e a 1 t h,' the Anti-Tuberculosis League, private institutions and private philanthropy have combin ed to muster their forces against tuberculosis. Fet-hlp n e nft. tVu-' amis Hawaii has : to offer against tuberculosis the invasion of the . white plague, these, bodies ' have hopes of attaining a moderate sue- , cess, of checking the invasion, of saving many lives and ot prevent ing the searing of many others, eventually.' to place the people 'of Hawaii in a position where tuber-, culosis. will find scant welcome and bad fare. The work against this disease in the Territory has been growing for several years. A number of valuable points have been gained and advances 'have been made that help assure to Hawaii an Ul timate' complete success. 4 Briefly the , stage ti o w. reached is that where responsibility s hTTt s ' Shoulders.' If X iay term the ardor with Which certain individua's have de voted themselves to this work as a fanaticism of philanthropy, I will say that fanaticism has taken the Territory as far as it can. Enthu siasm is the force that must move it hereafter and enthusiasm is a weapon ot tue masses, just as tulerculosis i s a disease of the masses. So the responsibility rests now upon tnose who constitude the mass of the people in this Terri tory. It is a cosmopolitan popu lace to which the anti-tuberculosis workers now appeal, a mass of many alien component, but w e hope that the enthusiasm that must come to the assistance of the now active workers will be the stronger and more direct because it will be shared by numbers who have little other ground in com mon. Tuberculosis, it may be re marked, considers all grounds common to its activity. The point is this. All nations of the globe which amount to any thing are joining in what may be the greatest popular crusade since that limited Christian one which had for its purpose the attaining of the Holy Sepulchre. Is Hawaii to share this spirit, which is the spirit o f generosity and human feeling, or will it wait until the other independent states straighten up trom their tasks and after a moment's rest point the finger ot housewifery at us and say, "Now we must clean that place?". I do not think that Hawaii will wait once the people here become out wardly educated a n d inwardly conscious o f what the crusade against tuberculosis means to all of us. Tuberculosis is a peculiarly in timate thing. Is resides at our doorsteps and when it is not kill ing our neighbor's children it is killing our own. It does not prevent that terrible form which like plague or cholera casts its black shadow across human minds, striking terror into the hearts of men and moving them to frantic endeavors to rid themselves of the awful burden. Tuberculosis comes as silently and as inviduously as unconsciousness to an injured man, remains quietly and goes away as noiseless and as sure as a hearse. The Great White Plague is a terrible thing It offers no grip to the struggler. It took great minds and the essense of human patience of bent through its ghost Continued on page 2.
