RAYMOND THAT !AU - WITH "SYC Assorting that he Is conducting, u, campaign In bchal of the Demoodticq: party In Hawaii, as well as lor secur ing the Democratic nomination as can didate for delegate to congress, at 'ho primaries, Dr. James II. Raymond, Bald emphatically yestorday that dur ing his recent campaign In Hawaii ho had not attacked the plantations, nor has ho criticised Sonator Baldwin, of Maul, any more than a public official has a right to be criticised for his public acts. Ho does maUo the ac cusation, however, that certain per sons on Maui are suffering from f "sycophantosis." So far as his stand toward L. L. McCandless Is concerned, Doctor Ray mond announced that ho had not and does not intend to use any personali ties In the campaign. He said that ho proposes to outline his policy fairly and squarely and to criticise the Rep ublican delegate to congress for Uis official acts and thus indicate to tho voters who Is tho best man to be sent to Washington. Doctor Raymond came to Honolulu Saturday from tho Big Island where ho made a campaign tour of the Is land and mado a great number of speeches. Speaking of the stories printed in Hllo In which he says he was charged with "knocking" individuals and tho . sugar plantations, Doctor Raymond said: "I have never at any time during this campaign said anything which could be construed as abuse of my op ponent, or anyone olso. At no time have I mentioned the name of Mr. McCandless or brought into the dls custon any criticism in connection with his stand in the campaign. My campaign speeches have been clear of such criticism as I do not believe in that sort of thing anyway; and my interest is entirely in the Democratic party. "In regard to unduly criticising the plantations, it is entirely without f foundation. All tho way through my campaign over there the text of my argument has been based upon a cam paign of education, especially in re gard to the principle of homestcading. I'havo consistantly advised the poor classes of people who want to home stead tho public lands to cooperate with tho plantations, to have a mutual understanding with the practical sugar plantation men and to harmonize any differences which may arise so that both parties to the agreement will benefit. Homesteadlng Chief Issue "As I have said before, tho prin cipal Issue in this campaign is that of homestcading the public lands. I have found this Issue a live ono and tho pcoplo greatly interested in its suc cess and insistent upon tho present ad ministration carrying out its program of opening up tho public lands to homesteaders. "There is ono point particularly which I desire to make perfectly clear and that Is tho fact that I havo not indulged in personalities. I have, how over, criticised tno administration of public offices, and in my' referenco to I tho Prlnco I havo mado it clear that my criticism was of his administration as a delegate to congress. Tho same can bo said of Senator Baldwin of Maul, who is a public official and whose public acts in the Senato and out of tho senate ore subject to criti cism, as, is every public official; that is, if there is anything to criticise. "This campaign will be no different from any other that I have participated in, and if I find that I have to refer to tho record of any public official in order to bring homo to my audienco tho forco and point of my argument, I " shall avail myself of tho right to throw light upon the administration of any official and to criticise him if I see fit to do so. "Tho great trouble with tho Island of Maui is that we have a disease known as 'sycophantosis,' tho cardinal symptoms of which are as follows: Some person who has a desire to in gratiato himself with tho higher-ups is possessed with a wild obcesslon to talk and is over anxious at all times to tell something; if ho Is unablo to hear ASSERTS SUFFERING OPDANTOSIS" of anything that he thinks would In- IcrVsst tho boss ho is prone to manu facture somo interesting yarn. ,1,'IIho unfortunate part of it is that tho men who are supposed to havo common sense and a knowlqdgo of worldly affairs do not seem to realizo tho danger or contagiousness of the disease and fall victims to it them selves; if not, they are prone to ac cept as gospel truth all that may bo said by this particular person. -Sycophants Cause Trouble "In every campaign that I have been engaged In a sycophant has play ed tho most important part in the game and has caused all the trouble that I have experienced on the Island of Maui. I have been accused of mak ing unkindly remarks about my op ponent, and even the dead; all of which havo been malicious lies. But for somo reason or other these indi viduals have been believed, and I have been held up to scorn without cause. "I wish it to be distinctly under stood that I boar no feeling of malice or of ill will toward anyone, and that no enemies on the Island of Maui; that is to say, that there is no person on the Island of Maui that is justified in accepting those statements of my hav ing attacked Individuals as being truth ful and I defy any person no matter who he may be to produce an iota of evidence to support tho charges which havo been mado against me, political or otherwise. "Lot me say again that I ain not against the plantation interests, or any other Intcrsts of Hawaii; on tho con trary, I am largely interested in Haw ail, and if I am elected a delegate to Congress I shall prove to tho peoplo that my interest lies in promoting har mony and all measures which would bring prosperity to tho Territory, also I will represent all the people faith fully and honestly, to tho best of my ability. "I am candidate on the Democratic ticket and I shall abide by tho Dem ocratic platform: And I would say fur ther, that if I am elected I would not introduce any measure in Congress without first having fully consulted with my party and tho representative peoplo of Hawaii. There will bo no possibility of my introducing any bill or supporting any legislation inimical to tho best interests of Hawaii." Doctor Raymond will start next Thursday to make an agresslvo cam paign on tho Island of Kauai. Ho will bo accompanied, it is stated, by Sena tor Makekau, of Hamakua, who Is ex pected to arrive from Hllo on tfto Mauna Kea today In Honolulu. j Doctor Raymond has overy claim to coming of old American stock, for his ancestors came over to Beverly, Mass-! achussetts, in 1C34. Ho was born' In Charlton, N. Y November 23, 18GG, but i his father moved to Saratoga when his son. was five years old, and it was ; there -ho received his education. Ho , was graduated from the Rush Medical ' College in 1893, and was at onco ap-1 pointed instructor In surgical path-1 ology on his record of 100 per cent i plus. Doctor Raymond came to Haw- J all In 185 1, and has been hero every i since, practicing inedicino in Honolulu 1 where ho was president of the board : of health In 1S9S, and later president ' of the loan fund commission On Maul ho is owner of tho Raymond ' Ranch in partnership with Mrs. Ray mond. :0: I COLLEGE OF HAWAIIi ANNOUN- ! CES DELAYED OPENING Tho opening of tho collogo year is postponed from Monday, September 0th, to Monday September lGth. IMS, on account of tho establishment at the College of a Student's Army Train ing Corps Unit, and on account of the delay In transportation for returning members of the Faculty. This will not affect tho short course In Sugar Chemistry, which will begin on Tues day, September 3rd, as already an nounced, JOHN MASON YOUNG. Acting President . I AVIATION CLUB 10 BE ORGANIZED Kauai is to have a place in tho 1000 Club which has recently been organ ized on tho mainland. This club is composed of tho young men who nro Intorstcd In aviation and who will pledgo themselves to do everything In their power to malto "Amorloa First In tho Air." Chick Evans, ono of -America's foro most golphers has been appointed as Captain and leader in this new move ment and Is doing everything that ho can to mako it a success. It is the opinion of Mr. Evans that the war has awakened tho world to moro possibili ties of tho nlrplano than would have been done for some time and ho firm ly bollevcs that after tho war, thcro will be great planes which will swiftly carry passengers and freight from point to point, and that these planes will displace the trains of today. There will bo no great expense in this project like there is in tho build ing of railways as tho alrlanes are free and open to all and practically tho only cost will be the building and maintaining of the flyers. Some fac tories are already turning out com pleted machines while others are working on standized parts. It will be a, wonderful thing to seo several of these machines carrying freight and passengers from and too our different islands and tho best of it all is, that tho plan Is perfectly teas able. We would then be able to go from hero to Honolulu in an hour, run over before breakfast as it were. Just at present the main thing is that wo must get the young men in terested in this and that they must learn the rudiments of aviation. A local club is to bo organized at Eleolo under tho direction of Mr. H. T. Ishi mura, who has made somewhat of a study of this subject and it will pay the young men to get la touch with him and find out moro of the parti culars. NINE. SONS KILLED KAISER IS GRATIFIED Ono word In tho lvaiser's letter to Frau Meter after she had lo3t nlno sons in tho war strikes the majority of non Germans with amazement. It has been often asserted by our enemies that the world outside their borders does not think as do tho Germans, and the rebuke is accepted as praise, but when the Kaiser writes the bereaved mother that he Is "gratified" by the oxtent of her sacrifice thcro is seen to be a depth yet unplumbed in tho Emperor's psychology. Americans in stinctively place alongside this strange messago of sympathy the letter that Lincoln wrote to Mrs. Blxby, and tho two men seem to stand out in a clear er light: The Kaiser's Letter "His Majesty the Kaiser hears that you havo sacrificed nino sons in de fense of tho Fatherland In tho pre sent war. His Majesty is immensely gratified at the fact, and in recognition Js pleased to send you his photograph, with frame and autograph signature." Lincoln's Letter ' "Dear Madam I have been shown in tho files of tho War Department a statement of tho Adjutant-General of Massachusetts that you aro tho mother of fivo sons who havo died gloriously on tho field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so over whelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you tho consolation that may bo found in tho thanks of the Republic that thoy died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuago tho anguish of your bereave ment and leave youonly tho cherish ed memory of the loved and lost, and tho solemn pride that must bo yours to havo laid so costly a sacrifice upon tho niter of freedom." Literary Digest -:: M. S. Ilonriqucs, Democratic candi date, has commenced his campaign with a vigorous attack upon corpora tions, ospocially towards tho Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co. and pledges himself to support a bill for a thor ough investigation relativo to their earnings and tariffs. This is an old controversy which has already been tho subject of several enciuirius by commissions and committees. Why not start something novel? Young brains should havo young ldoas. BACK TO IHE LAND FO HIS A back to the land project, fostered by S. Kclllnol, and having for Its ob ject the persuslon of Hawaiians to take up arable acres and plant them In taro, rlcj, etc., has been put up to Food Administrator Child for Indorse ment and ppproval. ' The Haualel Food Product Company wnlch Is the namo of the Kclllnol en terprise, proposes to purchase or lease DO acres of wot land from tho Prince vtile plantation and put 30 acres in taro and 20 Into rice. It is proposed to put 2! acres of the land Into the hands of four Hawaiians who have expressed a desire to plant taro; while threo Chi nese and one Chinese woman aro to farm the other 25 acres, 20 of which will be planted to rlco and fivo to taro. Kclllnol estimates that tho company can make $4000 profit in 15 or 1G months, on an investment of approxi mately $G000. :0: FORMER LI HUE TEACHER MARRIES HONOLULU MAN Tho marriage of Miss Marjory Cates and Mr. Clyde Drury Evans took place today at high noon at tho Llhuo Union Church. The bride was given away by Hon. Wm. Hyde Rice, the brides maid accompanying Miss Cates was Miss Gertrudo Fishor while Ernest Kahl acted as best man. Rev. J. M. Lydgato said the simple words that linked these two lives together "till death do us part." The ushers at the church were, Charles A. Rico, Wm .Henry Rice, Mortimer Lydgate, Harrison Rice and Henry Wcdemeyer. A wedding breakfast waB served at Helenanl, tho home of Mr. and Mrs. Win. Hyde Rico.

YOU MAY GET YOUR PERMITS TO TRAVEL STEERAGE FROM THE FOLLOWING NAMED MEN Any male passengors wishing to travel to Honolulu via the steerage class will havo to secure a permit in the future to do so. This permit will havo to bo secured before they can purchase tickts and they must havo It to flo so. ! You may secure your permit from the following: Local Exeption Board, Lihue Kauai.

Kuhns, Kealla. Captain Leavltt, Port Allen. :0: KAWAIHAU NOTES A petition of the Kapaa Homestead ers Is being presented to a certain Lihue financier, asking him to sub scribe for a $20,000.00 Bond issue sanc tioned by Act 215 of 1917 to provido a domestic water supply for tho 4th series. The erection of an independent mill to grind their cane is tho ambition of tho Homesteaders at Kapaa. It is understood that certain Honolulu ' banking interests aro willing to assist in the financing of tho same. Tho scheme is an old one, and has fro-! fluently been brought forth in several districts contingent to Homesteads throughout theso Islands, but so far has never materialized. The last ef-1 fort was a project about two years ago at Laupahoohoe, Hawaii, which, liko j Its predecessors, novor passed tho paper stago although great details and , promises wero mado for tho successful I promotion. In vlow of the present prices of materiul and uncertainty of : delivery It would not appear to bo an ' opportune time to give serious thought to such a proposal. I Mr. Thomas Evans, Territorial Sur-1 veyor, is, now employed In laying out the land reserved as town lots oppo slto tho Kupaa school, which are short ly to bo sold by tho Government. There should be a big demand for these sites, situated as they are, with Ideal locations, macadamized roads and County water supply. It would appear that tho only convenience lack ing aro electric lights. I Went to Walalua, In the Interest of tho Territorial Market. There will bo a large crop of peanuts at this place. Am forwarding samples to the Ter ritorial Market to obtain a market price for them. Tho Japanese are dis posing of peanuts locally anywhere from $6.00 to $10.00 a CO pound bag. There will be moro peanuts than the local market can consume when the main crop comes in. Water mcllons at Waiapouli and Kapaa are being marketed locally. Growers recolvo four cents per pound. The melon fly has been less destruc tive than usual this year. Won't to Mana to inspect Pah On's 300 acre rlco plantation. Mr. Pah On has GOO acres of rice and has only enough water for 300 acres of rlco under cultivation, This land used to be a salt marsh and through his ef forts it has now become a very pro ductivo rico plantation. Mr. Pah On leaser this land from V. Knudsen who in turn leases It from tho Government, in 1920 tho lease expires. Pah On's buildings are in bad shape and he would mako repairs if ho were cer tain he could renew his lease in 1920. Joe Bonto the farmer at Lawal, who raised some exceptionally fine corn, is harvesting somo of his corn becauso it is suffering from too much moisture. He was advised to double his corn, turn tho stalks over so that the cars would hang down, thus shedding tho rain from the grain. Mr. Bonto will havo about fivo tons of shelled corn from his five acres, he is going to leave some of his corn unshcllcd and mark this -for seed. Mr. Bcnto's corn is a native hybrid resembling tho Cuban corn, but forming a much super ior ear. Persons desiring seed of this variety may mako application through tho County Agent at Lihue. Mr. Bonto will sell tho seed for $G.OO per cwt. un shellcd. This will enable tho planters to test tho seed ears. Ho finds this variety a disease resistant. Visited tho Japanese produce grow ers at Waialua River. One farmer here has been raising sweet potatoes on the same, piece of land for 11 years. Advised rotation with peanuts and beans. Okamura will havo a shipment for tho Territorial Market In the near future. He is peddling his crop now and would appreciate a mnritet wlioro ho could sell his produce In bulk. He raises only sweet potatoes and dovoles COUNTY 6 MAKES REPORT fivo acres to this crop. j Klrls now employed and that upwards At Opeeopeello a Japaneso fanner oI 5000 wt)re working on all of the Is has some very lino Irish potatoes, j lands. Ho stated that tho badges of tho They are being harvested and mar , Uoy's Working Reserve were as highly keted locally at $4.00 por bag. j l''zod over on this Island as was tho Chas. Rice of tho Lihuo Ranch Is CroIx do Guerro in Franco, and that going to try velvet beans. Ho has 1 1110 children all seemed to realizo that purchased 1,000 pounds of seed thru thy woro doing their bit In tho war tho county agent. Ho also intends i b' holp.ng piunt the eropb with which to plant 100 pounds of black-oyc beans. Ho had good success with them last year and found a ready market for his product among tho Japaneso who aro very fond of them. If plant ed In October, black eye beans are not troubled with aphis. Mr. Kcllnoil of Walmea called to take up tho matter of taro production. Ho has tho labor and land for 30 acres of taro and 20 acres of rice if he can get tho c p:tal to carry out his plan. Ho Is very anxious to get Hawaiians back to the land and has a proposi tion which ought to work out woll if the men whom ho has organized aro dependable. I havo Investigated the schemo and Miss Elsie wilcox will financially back him if ovorylhing that he has claimed turns out to bo teas able. If ho can plant 30 acres of taro ho will increaso tho acroago of taro on Kauai by almost 1-3 and help out tho food situation considerably. . j : BOARD OF LIQUOR COMMIS- SIONERS MEET AND PLAN Tho Board of Liquor Commissioners boarded tho steamer Claudino for Ho rnet at the County Building last Wed- nolulu whero they will make thoir nesday morning to consider the rules homo. Maul News, and regulations prescribed by Gov-, :0: ernor McCarthy for the sale, transpor tation, Import and export of Intoxicat ing liquors in tho Territory for mech anical, scientific, sacramental and mo dlcinal purposes. The board appoint ed A. G. Kaulukou as inspoctor-in-chief, who will handle all matters per taining to the granting of licenses, etc. WANTS SCHOOL OPENING DELAYED Efforts to have this season's open ing of the schools of Hawaii postponed from' September 17 to October will bo made by Food Administrator J. F. Child, following n long conference which that official had unlay with Charles A. Rlco, deputy food com missioner for Kauai. Mr. Child will reopen the subject at a meeting of the Territorial Food Commlslon on Wed nesday and endeavor to Boeure from that body a plea to Governor Mc Carthy, who has full power to uct In Hie matter. According to Mr. Rico, there is every reason in tho world why tho postpomnent should be ordered and few if any arguments against It. Up wards of 0000 children, ho estimates, who aro now doing splendid work on the plantations of tho various islands will be withdrawn Just when thoy uro greatly needed to take tho pluuoa of those workers who huve been called into niUitury srvlce. "If these children are left to work in tho lioids until lite lust of October," says Mr. Rice, "thoy can clean up the rest of tho planting and bo directly re sponsible for the production of up wards of 12,000 tons moie sugar than can bo started if they uro taken awuy and placed in the schools. "Owing to tho scarcity of teachers, many of whom I understand to bo de tained on the mainland owing to tho lack of paseuger accommodations on island-bound ships, tho instruction to bo given to the children during the first two weeks will be practically nil, each class being too largo to properly handle. "By October 1 most of the teachers will havo arrived In the Islands and school can then be started in some thing resembling a normal way. Then by either cutting tho Christmas noli duys a. weok and teaching fivo Satur days, or by teaching on ten Saturdays conveniently scattered through tho school year, the time which the child ren will lose now can be easily mado up. "Tho children are all eager to finish up tho planting of tho cane nnd earn tho bonuses which the plantations pay to those who work tho full twenty days of each month. Thoy seem perfectly wllliim to make up the lost timo by at tending school on Saturdays later in tho year when the cuno is all planted and oveotn.ng is in good shape." Asked us to the number of children working on Kauai, Mr. Rlco estimated that there were some 1500 boys and 1 tho war Is to bo won. ' Mr. Rlco hoped to see Governor Mc Carthy on this matter, but Is compoil cd to leave lor home before tho chief oxecutive returns from his trip to Ku- ' noolawe. Mr. Child, therefore, has un- I'dertahen to present tho matter both to the food commission and to tho gover nor, upon tho latter's return. :o:- FORMER EDITOR TIMMONS MARRIES MAUI GIRL At tho homo of Mr. dnd Mrs. II.
