Former Editor of Advertiser Is
Glad to Be Once More in
- Honolulu
rFrom Saturdays Advertiser
Walter 0 Smith is back he Arrived
i tho Sierra yesterday Whilo this
roturn undoubtedly means something
to Mr Smith it means more to Hono
lulu Mr Smith is very much inter
ested in tho people of Honolilu ho has
a great many friends here and tho
greetings ho received yesterday per
sonally and by phone probably made
his groat heart beat just n little faster
But then the people of Honolulu aro
greatly interested in Mr Smith And
there you arc
Mr Smith is apparently the same
old AVnltcr G who acquired tho
belief a few months aero that ho could
leave- tho Islands for good but lie has
como back successfully Tho only
difference in him and this does not
show to bo noticed is that ho is a
grandfather Nobody would suspect it
at tho flrstglance but that is becauso
ho is naturnlly a modest man Yet it
is a fact and ono which should mako
tho alohas doubly deep with which ho
is greeted
Symbols of Homo
For tho time being Mr Smith has
taken up his hcadquartors at tho Young
Hotel His window looks out toward
the Waianao mountains Their sil
houettes of deepest bluo cut the azure
of tho sky lino above the dark green
cane fields of Bwa liko the dream
mountnins of ones youth To Mr
Smith thoy -were ns n symbol of homo
Years ago ho remarked in a low
reminiscent tone when I thought I
was leaving theso Islands forever X
spont tho last hour of my Btay photo
graphing in my memory through my
eyes those beautiful mountains And
now I nm greeting them again greet
ing them as old friends always tho
same and with a smile of kcrrrtfelt
meaning ho gazed out of tho window
nnd over the roofs of the tree-embowered
city to tho rugged playground of
tho shadows
Hero to Boost
Mr Smith is hero to boost Hawaii
and Honolulu As editor of tho Ha
waiian Star ho will feel thoroughly nt
home for Tho Star is ono in that bright
journalistic constellation through which
Mr Smith hnB passed on his orbit nnd
pnsslng added to tho lining of life In
tho strenuous days of the early repub
lic he started tho paper on tho broad
American principles which ho is euro
to continue Its the nature of tho
man
Well I dont know just exactly
Star Tho truth is I would liko n littlo
timo to look around to sizo things up
a bit Back on the Coast I wns
troubled with a touch of rheumatism
but now why I feel liko n young mnn
again and all trace of my rheumatism
is gone I tell you this cllmnto is won
derful it is certainly wonderful
And so it was that Mr Smith sat in
his comfortable chair looking thorough
ly at home breathing deep draughts of
tho sunshlney air talking of old friends
to bo met again of new friends to bo
discovered telling of old days in tho
Islands of other days on tho main
land in tho Orient and upon the sea
Certainly Not
Bjt of work Of routine Of tho
dullness of life Certainly not they
wero subjects foreign to what that win
dow in front of him framed
Its truo I couldnt keep away
iNobody enn who has lived here I
think Hut tliero aro others who have
gono away moro often thnn I have to
stay yet have just as often come back
X am willing to bo a member of the
Como Back Club but I hardly think I
doscrvo tho presidoncyj no I think
thero nro sorao others who better do
scrvo tho place But thats a good
idea about tlio Como Hack Club it has
attracted a good deal of attention and
tho membership should bo largo
And during nil this timo tho inter
view was punctuated by phono calls
from friends who had heard that Wal

Quaid took up tho entire day yesterday

well known people of tho city wero im

Tho prosecution attempted to draw
from McQunid the fact that ho had
several times accused his wife of mis
conduct before Driver entered into his
homo and broke It up Its object wns
to show that McQuaid distrusted his
wife long before the main incidents on

threatened divorce thus weakening tho

Their Cute Move
A number of rising young gcntloman

The big police wito was kept busy
going tho rounds and gathering up tho
contributions from each show making
