THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY AUG. 26th. 1913 Issued-Kvery Tuesday. Entered at the post office at Lihtie, Kauai, as second-class matter. Subscription Ratks S2.50 Pkk YltAR, Si. 50 POR SIX MONTHS IN ADVANCE Advertising RTfiS, 75 Cknts An Inch Pur Month. E. B. Bridge water, Editor K. C. Hopper, Manager If the majority of our girls vote as well as tuey look, there will surely be some voting in the future. Now that we have our chamber of commerce, let us lose no time in planning tha't Floral Parade for Kauai. There are so many things awaiting this live wire body that there is some danger in the desire to bite off a bigger mouthfull than can be thoroughly masticated. Much has bem said of late con cerning the epidemic of fatal auto accidents in Honolulu as the re sult of careless, mad and furious 'joy riders, and truly, it is fright ful the way this bu:?,i! uf lunatics are premitted to dash through the city s crowded streets. of point, including an assortment job faces. ' The new printing plant will oc cupy a home two story building constructed on plans for its special purpose, having a floor space of nearly five thousand feet. The plant will handle three papcrs "The Kauai Semi-Weekly Inde pendent," a Japanese weekly and a Filipino weekly, and the job de partment will be one of the most complete and up-to-date in the Tet ritory.Sgj Kauai's new paper will recog nize no single political faction, taking under all circumstances, making competency its motor for progress, dealing fearlessly and with constant aim for the upbuild ing of community interests and the wellfare of the people in gene ral and the district of Waimea in particular. "Squareness" is to be our motto as it has been during the time we have been connected with The Garden Islnad. .It might not be such a bad idea if Doctor Olaisyer could manege to inject some of his hog cholera serum into a few of Kauai's little bund wigs, thus rendering them imnnins from the terrible strain under which they labour as the result of the rigid police pressure. "If I should treat my customers as you do yours," remarked a local business man to Ye Editor the other dav, "I would soon have no business." Y"e will bet a package ot peanuts that if tins same gentle man were to ad pt the frank and straight forward policy w h i c h makes this paper so popular, for about twenty four hours he would enjoy the best nights sleep he has had since since oh, well, about ten years, at least. On, no, there is no blind pig on Aiain street, Koloa! That report about the forty dollar cut glass set, the monogrammed gold watch, and the ruination of two of Koloa's prominent young business men the latter two incidents occuring within the last six months by con tinued orgies is all nousencical rot, manufactured in an attempt to attact the "spotless" character of Mr. Abby. If you don't think so inquire of the latter gentleman. Commenting upon a recent arti cle appearing in these columns concerning our worthy County Attorney, S. K. Kaeo's attitude in the presentation of cases under his supervision, a prominent Lihue citizen said, "yes, we all under stand the situation quite well, but, how are we to make matters bet ter?" He might also have added: "Plow could we have made matters worse?" If the county attorney has a corner on the legal gray matter, and the intellegent voters of the island the rest of the substance of this nature should be sent parcel post to the Morgue in Honolulu. The deputy sheriff of Koloa and a part of his police force has taken the cue from Waimea de puty sheriff and launched out to the Moving Picture Industry, hav ing leased a local show house from "Friend" Abby. Sheriff Rice should see to it that his deputies either keep out of business asso ciation of t'-is nature or else turn in their commission as police offi cers There can be no objection to any Deputy Sheriff engaging in a line of business which can be con ducted apart from individuals of a savory reputation, but there is, in the minds of all who are possessed with a grain of grumption, con siderable room forcritizism in such instances as we have before us in the "Crowell-Blake Moving Picture Enterprises." If it be true that under the pre sent Liquor Law a wholesale deal er can supply goods by the barrel or in any other large quantity to an individual, and to such and as often as he maj like, even though lie may be positive that his custo mer is a blind pig owner, and such dealer feeling that i,iing to this law which he can not but know he is breaking, he is beyond the pale of conviction, then it is high time the law now enforced should be corked up in a bottle of rum and set afloat. A dealer who will sell to a cus tomer, in such large quantities and then say he docs not know whether or not the purchaser conducts a blind pig, does not only lie but also knows perfectly well that he is dishonest. It is a well known fact that the liquor dealer pays in proportion to other license hold ers a verv large license and that he is therefore entitled to all pos sible leniency. We believe that in the case of the county of Kau.iis this leniency is practically unli mited, the liquor commissioner, being men possessed of broad ideas and opposed to haggling methods. We also believe that there are honest men among our liquor deal ers as well as men of other trades. The point, however, is this; that if the agreement necessary to be sign ed before securing the much covet ed license, cannot be honesty liv ed up t o then why should the license be accepted at all? The acceptance of the condi tions under which the license is granted by those securina same justifies the commissioners in their belief that the conditions are satis factory to all concerned and have faith in those to whom these licen ses are granted, fullv believincr that the conditions imposed can be faithfully full filled. If. after a dealer procures his license he finds that he cannot, with out dishones ty, meet these conditions it is cer tainly no credit to him to have their affrontary to brazinlv state that he does not know that a customer who buys booze by the barrel is a blind pig owner.
