WE WANT RILEY ALLEN
T lore is a more or less persistent rumor go
ing urouud that Governor Farrington intends
to appoint Kiley H. Allen, former editor of the
Uoiolulu Star-Bulletin, Territorial Secretary.
We liope the rumor is well-founded. For cer
tail ly we know of no one who could fill the job
R !ey Allen is a man big enough to bv Secre
tary of the Territory of Hawaii. .His training
fits him for the position; his ability is unques
tioned and his friends are legion, lie made
decidedly good as editor of the Star-Bulletin,
as t le editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
and as a major in the United States army in
charge of relief work in Siberia.
Vc. don't know that Allen would take the
job. Le is much in demand in other quarters.
But wc do know that he lias much Aloha for
Hawaii and we believe that he would come if
possible. At any rate, let's give him the oppor
tunity. We certainly can't lose anything by
trying to get him.
KNOCK OUT OKOLEIIAO
There is probably not a district in the Terri
tory where a couple of dollars and a wink or
two won't get you a bottle of okolehao. Our
mountains seem to be made on purpose to hide
distillers of that rotten stuff that the "ol'
timers" think they have to drink. And of all
the poison, vile, filthy slop that men take into
their systems, okolehao as it is usually made, is
There seems to be some relief in sight though.
UndT a bill passed by the senate last Friday
the territorial district and circuit courts of
Hawaii are given jurisdiction over the viola
tion of the prohibition laws. We will at
leasl know whom to praise or whom to blame if
the violators of this law are given such a jolt
that they prefer work to distilling or if they
continue to make and sell their poison.
ROUND UP TEE CURB
nilo is starting a drive to round up and put
out of the way and out of their misery all the
unlit iised and homeless dogs. The policemen
are all responsible for the stray dogs on their
beats, and they are carrying lassoes now to
bring them in.
That might be a good thing for Kauai. We
have seen some of the scrawniest, mangiest,
most disreputable looking whelps around the
post office and Tip Top building lately that we
ever were permitted to see. When we saw
those canines scratching themselves against
the trees or the side of the buildings we had
about the same reaction that we have when we
see -somebody yawnk Only in this case we
"aorta" unconsciously started scratching. Yep,
we'll be glad when they are rounded up.
TJIEIR BUSY TIME
Summer is the busy time for the mail order
man. ne realizes merchants in communities
like those on Kauai are apt to let their business
drift a little as the long, hot days come on, so
they flood the mails with new offers, and spend
thousands of dollars to tell you that "prices
are going up before fall you'd better lay in a
supply of this or that while it is cheap." Don't
be "easy", as the boys say. Just remember
that these .fellows make their hay while the sun
shines hottest. And to the home merchant
we would say don't let them put this stuff
over on you again when, if you keep tip your
advertising through the summer mouths the
same as in the winter months, you can make a
very large part of their efforts count for
naught. Tell the home people what you have
to offer them now for their future needs, just
as the mail-order man is telling them. And
nine times out of ten they'll believe you before
they will the catalog man.
Eighty out of every one hundred automo
biles in the world are American made. The
automobile has cut deeply into the profits of
the railroads, and will cut deeper, unless the
roads reduce their rates of transportation so
that railroad traffic will again fee within the
limits of an ordinary man's income.
Statistics published by the savings banks of
New York state show that married men save
more than single men, and that widows are
more thrifty than married or single men.-

causes of tire trouble
When a tire is cut, dirt and
moisture work in between the
layers of cords weakening
the tire and causing early
Michelin Tires offer maximum
protection against such injuries.
The exceptional toughness and
thickness of the Michelin
tread prevent many cuts from

penetrate the injury is min-'
