one to thi man most concerned by Senator Shaf.

'' and ' Porto Kico, the committee through which the
homiuatloh was handled in the senate.
The prompt confirmation of the nomination of
: . Colonel McCarthy to the highest executive office
of the Territory is, we trust an augury of the ad
ministration sooq. trt 'Ai reported in The
' Advertiser, a. few days ago, not a protest against
- the 'nomination wis filed at Washington. In Jla
' wati there has been heard no open opposition to
. , the nomination. On the other hand there .has
"'. been wkle appreciation. All of which makes the
news of the confirmation most welcome and
' ' launches the new administration under circum
ftances most auspicious. , 1
' The entry of Governor McCarthy into tern-
torial affairs comes most opportunely. It is not
io be expected that he will be able, all at once", to
Settle the numerous urgent matters calling for
solution, the matters that have been piling up
: through the administration now dying amid gerie
,. ral congratulations. But it is certain that Mc
Carthy, working in the open, as he is expected to
' . do, will ,le able to unite the community behind
Certain necessary measures, one of which is the

McCarthy will be able to do this because the

the acres beinn abandoned of cultivation by the

management of Lihue, according to credible re
port, offered to continue the cultivation of the
V lands about to revert to the government, charging
actual expenditures 'against
time as it could be homesteaded,

,' - these to the first period of cultivation. This would
have ensured the continuity of

A patriotic executive, with honesty intentions
toward homesteaders and with a desire, to help
. he government by keeping up the- output of
sugar, wouldnever have allowed any of thU land
to become fallow and unproductive. So deep-root-ed
was the desjre to crush homesteading, however,
and so opposed was the administration to frank,
honest and open dealing in any matter touching
land and corporations, that the situation has been
; created where our full contribution .in the way. of
i food products towards the national need is im-
perilled. ' '
. Governor McCarthy can clear this up, because
. the people have confidence in his honesty of in-
tention,. If he. so saw fit he could secure, the war

fort will be to see that the prospective home

in such a way that the sugar production need not
i auffer He will do, to put it shortly, what should
' I have been done a year ago. Me will, in his own
'words, give the corporations and the homesteaders
each what is fairly theirs, and once this is made
,plain as a policy all serious troubles will end.
' . The egomania which has blocked the almost
', unanimous desire for such a charter for the Rapid
-. Transit as will enable it to extend its system to
meet legitimate demands will now vanish, along
? with the other combinations of personal spite and
: senile obsessions that have forced theTerritory to
mark time on a number of projects during the
' past five yean. The incubus that has made office
boys out tf executive heads of departments will
be lifted. The administration will turn and face
the future and the visits of men of affairs to the
; V Capitol' may be resumed, in the knowledge that
hour need not be wasted listening to maunder-
, ings that start nowhere and circle back through
X he .Philippine Islands to the same place. There
will be Jewer shabby imitations of royalty within
; old lolani but a whole lot more coramonsensc and
infinitely more business.
. We look for Action from the minute Governor
';. McCarthy takes his oath of office, and action that
will", bring us somewhere. Such an outlook is
most satisfactory from every standpoint. The
neW Executive has' always had 'the'trust of the
Community, and we confidently believe he will
continue to have it. The Advertiser congratulates
.. him most sincerely on his confirmation.

the Allies held splendidly at every point. The

the Allies were on the offensive and hurled back

This fall in line with the announce.
ment made io The Advertiser on Fri
day that practically none of the Haw
aiian raw anger of this year would go
to the Eastern refineries.
It 1 understood that there will be no
change ia tha price nor in the freight
rate and if such shall, prove to be the
eaae it will work a material saving in
freight rates for the companies here
whose augar may go to Canada. The
Vancouver refinery, owing to shortage
of freight bottoms has had difficulty
iq aeeuring raws to continue its oper
ations. Under the plana of the inter
national suar commission there is to
be a distribution of raws through the
medium of the Lnited mate sugar
committee. It has from the start been
evident that thio applied to Porto Rico,
Cuba and Hanto Domingo augars but
the possibility of diverting Hawaiian
sugar from its former sources bad not
come to mind.
While the taking by Canada of sugar
that would otherwise go East will be
satisfactory to the Island planters it
ia likely to raine a eonsiderabfo furor
in the East where already loud clamor
ing for more Hawaiian sugar has been
heard. On L'5,000 tona the saving in
freight over water charges to the bust
would le more than a quarter of a
million dollars and over rail rates, by
which route it would probably have to
go, the savinir would be about half
a million. It would ahso mean speedier
deliveries and return.

Woman Falls Into Deep Crater
and Lies There Forty-two
Hours Before Rescue
Mra. Hirsts, wife of a prominent
.Tnpanese of Hilo, was rescued from
death last Tuesdav afternoon after
falling 25 feet into an extinct crater
at Kapaho, Puna, in which she remain
ed for forty-two hours without food
or water ami suffering with a severe
scalp wound. The rescue waa effected
by Richard I.vruan and a party of Jap
anese who had been in search of the
ilr. Hirata had been visiting friend
in the neighborhood of the place where
she met with this accident and, upon
leaving for home, took a short cut to
where she expected to meet her hus
band. Woman ia Missed
According to the Hilo Daily Tribune,
it wan several hours afterward that it
was found Mrs. Hirata had not reached
her huxtiand. A searching party vil
at once organized but iu the darkneea
could not do much except eall out in
hope of the lost woman hearing tbem.
At daylight Tuesday the party resumed
the svurch, but all day there waa SO
sign of the woman. Just about four
o'clock Tuesday afternoon one man
found the track of Mrs. Hirata through
the high grass. The trail led to a deep
pit, into which the loading aeareber
nearly fell himself.
Guessing that the hunt had ended
the searcher called out the woman '
name and they were delighted to hear
her reply, though in a weak voice. A
volunteer offered to clamber down the
sides of the pit but this waa declared
to be impossible,
ratnta on Way Vp '
Mr. Lyman seut home for a long rope
and when it arrived it waa lowered
into the hole. On nundred aad twenty
feet of the rope wa played out before
the bottom was reached. Then one of
the Japanese descended to tha bot
tom of the pit and there found Mra.
Hirata in very weak condition. The
rope was made fast to the woman and
she was hauled to the brink of the cra
ter. When halfway up Mra. Hirata cried
nut for water and then fainted. She
was unconscious when brought to the
edge of the pit. There she waa treated
as well as the searchers eould and re
vived slightly. Later the womaa was
placed in an automobile and taken to
Hilo. She statod that in walking
through the tall grass she had sudden
ly fallen into the crater where aha lay
all Monday night and all of Tueaday.
Her escape from immediate death aad
her being found by the searching party
in time is thought remarkable.
