NOT1 many of us know these Islands of oura;
we -may think we do but in reality we are
, in profound ignorance 6n many points that really
, count. Many, of us can reel off reams of informa
; lion on the beautiful scenery of the Islands, the
wonders of the Volcano, (fie beauties of Waimea
canyon, the ever changing charms of the Pali, the
greatest extinct crater, these and a dozen other
points of scenic interest
Some of us have seen these points, or most of
; ihem, and we have read of them in the literature'
to ably and excellently prepared by the promotion
committee that it at least seems as if we knew
them. This is interesting to the tourist, useful in
'attracting travel hither. .
4 Others of us can talk glibly on the sugar indus
try, the thousands of men it employs, the annual
output of the mills, the acres
V and still others are well posted on the growing
and the canning of pineapples. Yet all of us have
; been woefully ignorant about the things that we
inow find counts. We have not known what we
;. were raising in the way of food stuffs and what we
can raise. Yc know that some individuals and
companies are raising cattle, some raising swine,
but how extensive the industry or industries are
we are uninformed. ln other words we are gen
erally ignorant of our resources and have been sat-
; !sficd to remain in ignorance until now we find we
liuist depend largely upon ourselves for our sub
sistence. , '
There never was a better opportunity for the
residents of Honolulu and of Hawaii nei to learn
Something about themselves and their resources
than this week. There will not be another such
! for four years for Honolulu can always, as the
center of population,, furnish the largest and most

ress. For three years the fairs will be held on the
' other islands in turn'.""
..The first Territorial Fair not only ranks with
; the ordinary state fair but more nearly approaches
an exposition. One cannot see it in an afternoon
or an evening. It takes several visits and if one
will attend each day or evening from now until the
close he will not more than see it all.

Obligation to Labor
WHEN it comes to the control of the entire
, American railroad system by national au
thority; we are compelled to deal with large' figure.
- Congre, .has, appropriated, nearly a billion dollar
; for compensation and another half-billion or nec
essary financing. Already there are complaints
against the proposed increase in
2,000,000 employes amounting to $300,000,000 a
year, but as the Wage Commission points out, this
is to be compared with existing wage payments
aggregating $2,000,000,000.
On this point it may be well for air concerned
to consider carefully the sober words of thf com
mission. The $300,000,000, which is a wage in
crease of fifteen percent in the face of a higher
cost of living known to be much greater than that,
"is not", the commission says, "one dollar more
than justice at this time requires. It will make
hard places smoother for many who are now in
sore need. It gives no bounty. It is not a bonus.
It is no more than an honorable meeting of an
The men who attest this statement by their sig
natures are not to be disputed or discredited by
reactionaries or by the sjokesmen for railroad
bankers whose occupation seems to be gone. With
transortation in the hands of government for war
purposes, the first consideration aside from that
must be justice to workingmen whose interests
have been neglected in the scramble for gain by
more powerful combinations. Whether public con
trol is to be long or short, it cannot begin more
creditably than by meeting honorably an obliga
tion to labor.
w. s. s.
What Money Is For
THE object of all labor and effort, whether of
muscle or brain, and of the use of capital to
increase the results of their application is not to
get money for its own sake, but to get those things
which sustain our lis es and minister to our com
fort and enjoyment. What really matters is not
the amount of money we get, but the amount of
those things which money is used to buy, for it
is only a medium of exchange, something that we
receive for what we give in labor or the product
of labor, in order to pay it out for what we wish
to obtain in other labor or the product of labor.
The things really exchanged are the labor or ser
vice or their products, and the money only enables
us to bring about the exchange of what we have
lor what we want.
What wc get for our work, then, be it the work
of muscle or brain, is measured not by the number
of dollars received, but by what the dollars will
buy in rent for shelter, food and raiment and the
comforts, pleasures and enjoyments of life. If our
wages are low and the cost of these is correspond
ingly low we are just as well off as though wages
were high 'and costs were correspondingly high,
provided there js the same amount of production

Canadian Conscription
WE. talk of hardships and sorrow here in Can
ada. We have had hardships, and God
knows too much sorrow btuVwe have no concep
tion of, what going on in France at the present
time. Production is absolutely essential; and the
most commanding duty of the government is to s'ee
that it is carried on ; but if We waited for further
exemptions and our men were decimated and de
stroyed, iwhat kind of answer would it be to say
we had increased production?
So spoke Sir Robert Borden the other day in
answer to an influential deputation of farmers pro
testing against the cancellation of all exemptions
for farmers' sons of the ages of twenty to twenty
two. The following day an Order in Council was
passed providing for the registration of Canadian
boys of nineteen. Up to the age of twenty-two no
exemptions are being allowed now for those men
in Class One who are physically fit. This is the
government's answer to the wholesale granting of
exemptions in Quebec.
These drastic changes in the working of the Con
scription Law indicate that the Canadian govern
ment considers the war situation to be extremely
critical. Otherwise there would be no interference
with the youths on the farms. Ilefore these changes
were announced Canadian farmers were at a loss
to know where to find the labor for the harvest
of 1918. To take their nineteen-year-old sons is
to make a difficult situation seem almost impos
sible of solution. Naturally there have been pro
tests, but for the most part Canadians are willing
to accept their Premier's judgement that this fur
ther sacrifice is imperatively required. Canada has
no trace of the jingo spirit, but Canada will ''carry
on" to victory, no matter what the cost.
Incidentally, it is worthy of note that signs are
not wanting of a new spirit in Quebec. The French
province is submittiqg to the inevitable with a
somewhat better grace. The new regulations will
hit that province hard.

It is suggested that the Territorial Fair be held
for one day longer than scheduled and that the
last day be a free day. There are very many in
Honolulu who would be benefitted and instructed
by the exhibits, Wif" who cannot very well spare
the price of admission f$r themselves and their
families. The matter is respectfully referred to
those in charge.

last Saturday.
The only people who could even say
anything about the matter were the
Hilo Iron Works Company, and the
manager of that concern stated in a
communication to the bourd of super
visors that it was impossible at the
present time to obtain , pipe of the
necessary kind and that there is very
little chance of doing so. in the future.
From the mainland coma advices to
the effect that the supply of pipe of
all kinds has been commandeered by
the Government and that eighty per
cent of the material is being shipped
to Europe where it is badly needed
for water carrying and other purposes.
Muet Walt for Bain
The big mills on the mainland advise
their usual customers that there is no
hope of obtaining galvanized pipe of
any size and that the supply ahead
fVr s long time to come has been tuken
u' or.
This means that the Waiakea home
lot' purchasers will be left without
water for domestic purposes unless
they manage to secure some from the
roofs of their houses and run it into
tanks. Considering . the dry spell of
Inst year and the possibility of an
other arid period this summer, the
supply of water that might bo gotten
from the roofs would not be nearly
enough for domestic purposes, to ssy
nothing of the supply needed for ani
mals. That water of a brackish nature
can bo obtained by sinking a few feet
is known. On the Andrews ranch some
years ao, in the same trace of coun
try, water was obfained 'ln this man

took to it in fine fashion.

Human beings are said to be ready,
to use the water they may obtain by

nary, pata, gave a dinner in honor of
tho two graduates of the class of 1918,
the trustees, the faculty and a few
others, thirty-six in all being seated
at the long tables ia the dining room
of Baldwin Halt.
' , It was an unique event, for the ex
cellent three-course dinner 'was cook
ed, vent 1 rely by the girls and proved
the : best of demonstrations of their
vocational training nnder the direction
of the matron, Miss Hill. A most
rapid service of the different viands
was rendered by the sixth grade girls
clad in aprons and caps of waitresses.
An elaborate address of welcome
was most clearly given by one of the
older girls and Mrs. A. C. Bowdish
spoke in an interesting manner upon
''The Future Woman".
Later in the evening an amusing
play portraying the dream of a little
girl who rebelled against household
tasks was well rendered in the school
lanai play-house. The remainder of the
evening was devoted to dancing. It
was a most enjoyable end successful
Among those present in addition to
