OUR DELEGATE TO C0XGRE8S
Every citizen of Hawaii should take a
very great interest right now in the political
situation. A delegate to Congress must be
elected next month and there never was a
time when it was more important to elect
the host man. The lig question for the in
dividual voter to decide is, "Who is the best
In the light of the present critical con
dition in which Hawaii finds herself in regard
1o the sug;!r situation, and since the Presi
dent, the Senate and the House of Represen
tatives are all Republicans, there can be but
one answer to that question. The answer is
HARRY A. BALDWIN.
Some people may hesitate to vote for
Mr. Baldwin because he is one of the big
men in the sugar industry of Hawaii. Rut
that would be very shortsighted reasoning.
All Hawaii and every resident of Hawaii is
prosperous or hard hit as our sugar industry
prosKrs or suffers. A clear thinking, broad
visioiu'd man like Harry A. Baldwin who
can ami will bend every effort towards the
saving of the industry, must be elected.
The sugar tariff always has and always
will be a big factor in Hawaii's prosperity.
Hawaii wants and 'badly needs a reasonable
protective tariff. That is Ihe Republican idea
and has been for ages. The Democrats have
fought tariff tooth and nail, in the past., and
there is no reason to think that the Democrat
ic party or a Democratic delegate would do
otherwise now. Cuba is spending many dol
lars in trying to eliminate that tariff. , In the
name of common sense, let us send a man to
Washington whose personal ideas ami whose
party principles are for us, not against us.
The fact that the President and Congress
is Republican is something to seriously con
sider. They would be much more apt to listen
to a man from their own party than they
would from an outsider. Link MeCandlcss
said that himself when he was running dur
ing the Democratic administration days, and
there is no reason to think that principle has
changed any since.
Every voter of Hawaii who takes time
to stop and reason this thing out will vote
for Baldwin. Regardless of party affiliation
or former belief, all must now work for the
Accidents like the one occurrin g at Lihue
school corner last week, will have to stop as
the public will not stand for it any longer.
The irresponsible and reckless drivers will
have to be eliminated by being deprived of
Iheir license to drive, and given such other
punishment as our courts may see fit to mea
It should be the task of every true citi
zen to report immediately any infringements
of the rules of the road and it is also sin
cerely to be hoped our new county ordinaii e
will soon be whipped into shape and applied
to guard a long suffering public.
IT DESERVES WELL
We want you good pint tie of Kauai to
take just a moment and read this statement
from Wright Patterson, one of the greatest
authorities on newspapers in the world:
'The country press deserves well of the
people of the nation, and especially of the
people of the country communities. Individu
ally, these newspapers may not be large in
size as com tared with the city papers, but
quantity is not Ihe measure of their value.
They are worth both directly and indirectly
far more than their subscription juice. For
that price they bring you each week the news
of your friends and acquaintances. To those
who have left the country home to go either
to the city or to some other country home,
the country newspaper is a welcome weekly
letter that keeps them in touch with friends
and former associates. To those at home it
carries the news of friends and neighbors. It
records the births and deaths, the marriages,
the comings and goings of those in whom
you are interested. It furnishes the medium
of publicity through which work for a better
and stronger community is maintained. It
is Ihe paper of, for and by the itoople of the
village, (he towns ami the small cities.
"No country newspaper worthy of the
name ever seeks the support of its communi
ty on any other ground than that of giving
more than full value for all that it receives.
You aid yourself, your community, your state
and the nation when you support and read
your own home town paper."
Home decoration is all right, but most
wives draw the line at embroidered dishrugs
and hand painted coal scuttles.
A TUESDAY UqAT
Kauai really needs a mail boat leaving
for Honolulu on Tuesday evening. At least
that is what the Chamber of Commerce thinks
and the chamber is composed of represen
tative business men from all over Ihe island.
Most of the boats leave Honolulu i'tr
the coast on Wednesday morning. A beat
leaving Kauai on Tuesday afternoon just
made connections and got our mail to the
coast almost as soon after it was written as
Honolulu's Wednesday morning mail.
But now mail that leaves hero Wednes
day afternoon must wail in Honolulu almost
a week before it starts for San Francisco.
And that is entirely too long for important
letters to be held.
The Chamber of Commerce passed a mo
tion to ask the Inter-Island Steam Navigation
Co. to remedy this inconvenient program. But.
as we all know, the Inter-Island doesn't do
things just, because somebody happens to
mention that such a thing would be nice. So
if you want your mail to go a little more
promplly and if you have no way of con
vincing the officials, just drop them a note,
or a bomb, whatever you happen to have most

The Washington conference has accom
plished more for civilization than any other
like meeting of the delegates of nations since
history began. It has opened the way for
the future peace and harmony of nations, the
abandonment militarism, the junking of na
vies and melting of war materials.
The conference has brought the nations
together upon a common level. They have
learned that there is a better way than to
spend the life blood and treasures of their
nations in military training and burdensome
expenditures that profit them nothing unless
it be the satisfaction of seeing their best
blood shed for the so-called honors of war,
which, whether their military operations are
terminated in victory or defeat niton the bat
tlefield means defeat from an economic stand
point. (Iu the great world war the allies won
what they called a victory over Germany,
but the cost of that victory has impoverish
ed Europe, demoralized its industrial system
and brought numerous powerful nations to
the verge of bankruptcy.
Generations yet unborn will need to
struggle and pinch to pay the heavy burdens
that the war has entailed. Rivers of tears
will be shed and millions of hearts are bleed
ing. Millions of heads bowed in sorrow, and
millions of hearts are torn in anguish be
cause the promising son gave up his life in
Nations have met in council upon many
previous occasions to put an end to war, but
never before have they thrown their problems
openly upon the table and discussed them
frankly and honestly and with a sincere de
sire to form a compact that meant justice to
all peoples and a reduction of military and
The "balance of power" has been a
stumbling block. No nation has had the
courage to abandon its armament and trust
its neighbor to do the same. Each has waited
for the other to act and the result has been
the strengthening rather than a weakening
of the burdensome military power.
This increase has gone on until it can
proceed no farther. The people are unable to
bear the burdens. They must have relief or
all perish together.
As a result of the Washington confer
ence the most powerful nations in the world
have agreed to naval limitations, and will
scrap hundreds of thousands of tons of war
ships and limit the size and number of war
craft that will be built. They have agreed
to limit the use of submarines and poison
gasses; they have agreed to fix the status of
the Pacific ami a Chinese tariff, and have
disposed the Shantung question in a manner
satisfactory to all, or as near satisfactory
at the present time. Future developments
will bring about changes that will adjust
the Chinese question upon a-basis of justice
In ihe accomplishment of this agree
ment there have been no threats of war; no
endeavor upon the part of any nation to do
minute another, or to seek a settlement ih.it

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
STILL ON THE JOB
February 22, 1"J?2.
To the Editor of the Garden Island,
Tt occurred to me that a good
many friends and patrons of mine
on Kauat would not understand that
my business will still be carried on
in Just the same serviceable way
while I am here in Honolulu. For
that reason I am writing to you
;tnd asking that you publish this
letter, if you see fit, in the columns
tho Garden Island paper.
have found out through the
months that tho Kauai Drug Co.,
lias been in business that a valuable
asset would be a man stationed here
in Honolulu that could' take prompt
care of requests from our custo
mers in cases where our stock could
not meet the demand.
With times slack as they have
been lately I thought it a mighty
(rood idea for me to try that plan
out and at the same time reduce
Ihe overhead of our company. S
1 am with tho Hollistcr Drug Co.,
here in Honolulu, and being so lo-
ated, I can keep in constant touch
with my business on Kauai.
It has been a hard pull to keep
our business going during the past
few months of business depression
lint we believe that tho people of
Kauai want a drug store and we
are going to ride through in spite
of hard pulls.
Just remember that I am still on
the job and now, in cases where we
do not hive in stock the things
our patrons want, I will take care
of their wants when the orders come
