Dentist For School Children
Tli'1 importance of tlic care of tin- ti-rtli of children is well undr
tood. On Kauai this matter is neglected, fur the rea.-on, principally,
that we have only one dentist and lie has his hands full with older folk.
S:methii)K must, however, he done for the children. Facilities must
he provided wherehy their teeth may he takeiv caiv of and saved.
This is a matter in which the Legislature should help out . The
jT'iverniiient pays salaries to physicians, and wo see no reason why den
tists should not ! maintained in the same way.
We hope our nieinhers of the I'gi.-laturc will take this matter up
and make a tiht which may result in securing sufficient care for the teeth
of the children of Kauai. Wo haven't it at the present time.
Act okmng to statements of Amhassador Gerard to the government
at Wa.-hington, Germany intends to carry on her sulnnarine campaign
independently of what the United States may desire or think. These
statements may lo ill-founded. Although diplomatic relations have
heuii liroken otl, the United States and Germany are not at war and may
never he. The two countries have heen friends since the founding of
the former and it has heen the hope of Americans that t hat friendship
would never lie hroken. However, the American policy is founded up
in justice and right. The Allies have recognized and respected it.
Germany lias not. apparently, understood it understood the unselfish,
humanitarian spirit Iwhindit; and, in place "of that, has fur a longtime
suspected America of inclinations and intentions which have never exist
ed at all. No man with two grains of gray matter in his hrain-pan can
suijpo-o a desire on the part of America to go to war with Germany or
any other European power. Our history for a lifetime of the oldest
people we ha vo sliows ijuite the contrary. However, as the old song
goes, referring to Old Glory, "She Has Never Yet Trailed On The
Comino i.hiwn squarely to hrass tracks, Honolulu and the Hawaiian
Islands owe a very 'reat deal to Alexander Hume Ford. No man has
given so much of his time, and so unselfishly, as has Mr. Ford, in setting
the Islands hefore the world. To say nothing of his previous, valuable
promotion work, fur sometime, he has heen publishing a magazine (The
Mid-I'acitie), which everybody knows has been of great value to Hawaii
and ha- quite probably been at a financial sacrifice to Mr. Ford. Un
selfish efforts, such as has been put forward by Mr. Ford, should be re
cognized in a substantial wav, not alone by our commercial bodies but
by our prominent cit'Zons who gain by the development of the Islands.
For instance, Kauai has received a very great deal of absolutely free ad
vertising through Mr. Ford's magazine. It has gone all over the Pacif
ic, mid has been read by thousands. We would very much like to see the
prominent men of Kauai. Oahu and the other island recognize the real
ly unselfish and valuable work of Mr. Ford more than they have in the
past, and in a more substantial manner.
TitKsK (,'ov.rkssionai. inquiries into the "food situation" form
the veriest hinmbug, Unquestionably the country has been imposed up
on by speculators, but there are laws on top of laws dealing with the
matter. The trouble is that the legal department of the United States
government has not performed its duty- If.it had there wonld have
been a different situation in the past and no problem ahead. Our gov
erninemital system is wonderfully shaped out, but a "fall down'', such
as in the present instance, leads easily to public embarrassment and
hardship. In place of Congress giving a lot of time to an inquiry it
should bring the legal department of the government up with a round
turn and compel it to " get busy."
Tiik last issi i; of the Hawaiian Forester And Agriculturist, report
ing the arrival of livestock at Honolulu, gives the following for the Niag
ara: S monkeys, 1 bear, 2 guese, J. II. Wise, pheasants. ',. Ib.llin
ger. This was quite evidently an interesting shipment, -although we
were a little surprised to know that Mr Wise and Mr. Ilollingcr had
been away from the Islands and, most of all, that they should b.; found
in such awful company.
It is very diflicult to say what effect the governmental upheaval in
Kussia will have on the war situation. W'e do not here know what is
behind it all just what inspired the change of government. It looks
as though it were :l plain case of lack of confidence in Czar Nicholas, al
though there may also be opposition to the war policy. The next few
days should afford important developments.
