'endorsement by -the) war de'partmtnt, it is said to'
be .'unlikely that the chief of staff for one of the
large Army departments and the general in com
mand p(.a-,nar bxfntonmenf, would be so vigor
ously voicing their vi4'flt they felt their
.official sujitfiors 'were friendly oWeidca. Indeed
Secretary of VV'ar Baker has recetly-, stated hi's
acceptance of features of 'universal trainmg, at
though he dissented promptly and vigorously to a
llan favored, according to reports, 'by Represent
tative Kahn, of California, for universal training
for all ages from eighteen to. forty. The strong
objection to this, at the present time, is 'on indus
trial grounds. The countryijedpf workers in
divers fields is so conspicuous now that the war
department is unwilling fo"sancionany" sugges
tions for taking an unnecessary number of youths
from employment for militay purposes.
But the revived interest in universal training
will probably grow measurably' between now and
the new year, by which, time congress will be con
sidering military matters and by which time, also,
efforts to obtain action upon some of the universal
training bills now pending or to -be introduced
anew, may be expected. The newspaper comments
on the proxsition, of late, continue to be very
encouraging. These seem to indicate as never be
fore k general and increasing sentiment for some
legislation. The propaganda which General Young
has launched in New England will be urged in
other cities and sections'. ?v .

Booze and The Hawaiiqns
VITAL statistics for the montli of October, just
. ' issued by the board of health, tell the same
tale that is told month after month in the Islands,
the gradual disappearance of the native Hawai
ians,: . In October, there were' an even hundred
deaths recorded in the city of Honolulu, of which
twenty-five were of Hawaiians and twenty-two of
part-Hawaiians, or a total of forty-seven out of the
hundred of those of Hawaiian and part-Hawaiian
blood.' . '"'"',..",." .' ,'
This i enormously out ' of proportion, to the
numbers of Hawaiians in this city as compared

witnessed by the' -
with 'the total population. The latest estimate of
the; population of Honolulu, that of the chamber
of commerce, is 63,000." Of these, the pure Hawai
ian number 7800; or approximately one-eighth.
The deaths are one-quarter, twice the general
ratio. The part-Hawafians number 7100, or ap
proximately eleven percent. The deaths number
twenty-one percent. '. . '
That is. during October, two Hawaiians or part-
considerable uro-
Hawaiians died
bers to every one of the rest of the community.
The Hawaiian death' rate was twice; what it
eh6uld be. . . . , ,'
Of the hundred who died thirty-six did so as
the result of tuberculosis, and of these thirty-six,
if the general, average" held, at least thirty were
Hawaiians.' , ,
The Advertiser believes that the wholly dispro
portionate death rate among the Hawaiians and
part-Hawaiians is due directly to the use of in
toxicants. Tuberculosis, among the Hawaiians is
the result,,to a very large extent, of the use 'of
intoxicants. The Hawaiians as a rule drink to
excess, women a,s well as men. They use' cheap
and fiery liquors. Their earnings,, rarely more
than those of 'a laborer, go too frequently for booze
instead of food. As a result, the constitution; of
many of the men is undermined, while the children
are frequently underfed or improperly fed, leaving
them easy victims to the white plague," . . ' ,7
The Advertiser hopes that the congressmen here
will have the opportunity of consulting health .'of
ficials, police and circuit judges, social workers
and others who have knowledge of the drjrtk sit

cunncLiiui is an

uation here' as it affects the Hawaiian race. Con
gress has been repeatedly approached during the
past few years in
hibition for the Islands. Further attempts will be
made and it will be well if those senators and rep
resentatives now here can acquaint themselves at
first-hand with the facts as we all know them and
as many are' willing to recognize them.
Something is killing the people here of Hawai
ian blood. , That it is the use of intoxicants may
be denied. Poverty, improper feeding, improper
housing, lack of knowledge of sanitation and. per
sonal hygiene and such may be advanced. Un
doubtedly every one of these things will be ad
vanced to explain the month by month and year
by year excess of deaths over births among those
of pure Hawaiian blood and jthe disproportionate
number of deaths of those ..oar-Hawiian Mood.
Hut The Advertiser submits that the poverty', lack
of knowledge and all the rest of the reasons regu
larly advanced spring from the use of alcoholic

and what Hawaii ' needs now are, par

ture have become prominent in the

Among these are increased' military
and naval appropriation for the fur

establishment of a fish hatchery; pro
tection of Hawaiian-grown coffee; com

relation between Hawaii 'a progres as

of sugar and the necessity for main
taining a teady supply of laborers on

and! last but not least, -the early estab

the Hawaiian National Park, to include
Kilaue and Mauna Loa volcanoes on
Hawaii, and "Haleakala, the extinct
crater, on Maui.
The last subject I regarded a one
of the mpst important by many local
people, owing to the many year of pre
paring for the establishment of the
park area to be governed by the Bureau
of National Park of Washington.
After appropriations are made for its
development, care and superintendence,
it become one of the link in th chain
of national parks; and can be devel
