otherwise, received here, probably
more than 100 delegates would
have come to Lihiie, although it;
is to le remembered that first fig
ures are alwavs considerably re
duced. The Hilo board of Trade, and
the Hilo newspapers, had been
boosting for a large attendance.
The former issued a circular let
ter, printed in large type, which
ran as follows:
Ho! for Kauai!

ty to see Hawaii P'irst.

A short time later the leading
editorial of the Hawaii Herald i
ran as follows- iind it will doubt
less be a matter of general local
regret that the news from Kauai,
alloting only eleven delegates to
the big Island, arrived just in time
to throw a chill upon such gener
ous and kindly enthusiasm:
It is up to the citizens of Hilo,
the residents of the country dis
tricts and every possible soul, to
boost for the Fourth Civic Conven
tion that is to be held on Kauai
September 26-27. The Island of
Hawaii must be shown to be fully
awake and a repetition of the Maui
fiasco, when fifteen or so Hilo peo
ple made Hut trip t o Wailuku.
must be avoided. Hilo is gradual
ly coming into her own anil her
citizens owe it to the town they
live in to see that this island is not
again disgraced by so small a dele
gation to the convention.
Francisco, fter a res: lence o f
years in Hawaii, and have not
known one another even by s'ght.
Men have lived in Hilo for years
and yet do not know a Kohalaman
by sight except it be by seeing
him carry around a copy of the
Midget. That sort of thing should
not be, and the surest wj.v to meet
and greet fellow citizens of Hawaii
is to attend civic conventions and
not be backward in speaking to
everyone met there. It is the "get
together" spirit that will count in
the long run, and it is only by per
sonal touch that that desired ob
ject can be obtained. All the news
papers and letters in the world
cannot accomplish as much in the
making of a personal friend as a
trip on the same steamer, a gather
ing under the same roof and a talk
about things of mutual interest.
As far as the Kauai convention
goes, there is also the added at
traction of the delegates seeing one
of the fairest islands in the group.
Men who will make the trip for
the first time will be delighted with
what they see and do on the Gar
den Island. Kauai i s indeed a
garden and even those old-timers
who hnve visited the island before
are beginning to fel excited over
the prospect of or.co more visiting
charming Liliue, beautiful Waimea
and not to be surpassed Hanalei.
The people oi Kauai are most
hospitable and thev will carrv out
their program in the manner that
dear old Maui did last year. It is
to be hoped that the Kauaians
have the pleasure of welcoming as
large a delegation of people from
this island as attended the second
convention in Honolulu in 1913.
(Alas! Since the above editorial
was written the news has arrived
that Kauai only wants eleven dele
gates fioiu the island of Hawaii.
However, let us hope that eleven
men do make the trip, Fd.)
The Maui News, of Wailuku,
was probably a little more forunate
in not having its "booster" editor
ial set up in type when the noti
fication of the allotments reached
the Valley Isle, and the following

Kauai is entirely justified in
limiting the attendance at the Civic
Convention to the number she has
accommodations for, but neverthe
less it again raises the question of
holding the conventions every year
in Honolulu in the future. The
matter was discussed during the
Maui meeting last year, but it was
thought that the convention would
soon lose its interest to the islands

follow, while on the other hand
there is a real danger that bv limit
ing the attendance to ten or a doz
en from each island, the greatest
good possible will not be attained
from the meetings. Maui was oblig
ed to fix a limit on the attendance
of last year, and probably would
again; but the idea is not right.
The more citizens tlut can be in

greater value will come out of
