Judging War News
GO fiV'-the map'TBther than by the headlines,
advises the Saturday Evening Post. One
may agree with expert. military opinion that recent
operations in France fiare been fully as important
a the First Battle df the Marne, which saved
France and the Ally cause. But the First Battle
of the Marne occurred nearly four years ago. One
may entertain no doubt that the title has definitely
turned; but the tide was in flood for forty-eight
months". Its ebbing may be a very long process.
We make these remarks because every now and
then we meet some one who believes that this Ger
man reverse nttifct bring peace the current year.
There is no warrant at this writing for such an
opinion, and there is no doubt that a lelief in
taar-by peace1 tends to relaxation. It is human
to look ahead, and if we think we are looking at
inn we
peace three months off we let down a bit That' . ' . -V. r,nnrt
would be- a play into the hands
" turned out that" peace was nearer to three years
' off than to three months.
The mip tfhows Yhat 'the German armies have
.given up some French territory. Measure what
they have given up by the extent of territory that
. frtill separates them from the Rhine, and base your
plans on that.
We believe it would be a shocking mistake to
encourage any idea tharxtbe end of tie" wnt "Vf'
initely in sight. Every plan now laid aWd Wery
motion now made in the United States should be
shaped by the strong probability that American
' soldiers will be fighting in Europe one year from
this date twice as many as are there now, and
fighting twice' as hard.
Those American soldiers are making the name
' of the United States shine with a new luster before
the world. They are splendidly justifying our
faith and pride in our country. The next Liberty
Loan drive is only a month away. When it comes
' time to subscribe see that you just individually
you prov'c worthy to be fought and died for. Do
your part as they are doing theirs.

A Japanese View .
THE strength of the United States is in her
patriotic citizens, and it is in taking a stand
for what is right rather than for what is expedient
that true American loyalty now asserts itself. Such
Is the opinion of Editor Soga of the Nippu Jiji,
who draws t the attention of the Japanese of
Hawaii the recent action of R. JI. Trent as a sam
ple of the Americanism that makes America great.
What this Japanese editor has tt) say to the Japa
, nese of Hawaii is well worth the reading of all
ethers in this Territory. Mr. Soga writes:
The complete unity of tfie people of the I'nited Htates

bitterly in politics iu time of peace have buried their

We can cite with case scores of examples to show to
our fellow countrymen why our respect and admiration
: ' for the loyal citizens is profound. Hut the most re
markable examples is the step taken !v Richard

that Mr. Trent's atiou is the most fitting ouh of all

Mr. Trent, when ukti to run for the senate as a
Democratic cuuiiidaic, refused to do so if Mr. Mr
Candleaa should remain at the head of the Dcinocrntic
ticket, Mr. Trent accuses Mr. McCandless of falliug
far abort iu doing his duty toward the country as an
ordinary loyal citi.eu at a time nlieu the country
faces an emergency, anil declared that it is Ins, Mr
Trent 'a, intention to refuse to become a candidate on
':; the Democratic ticket as long as Mr. McCandless rc
, mains in the race for a public position.
We aee that Mr. Trent's motive in taking t lie stand
' against Mr. McCandless ia above being personal or n
' mere political affair. He must have thought that tlie
eouutry's welfare ia something more than a person's
welfare. His action is one taken to help the couutrv
ad at the same time to save the good name of the po

For England, the Honorable H. A. I.. Fisher,
president of-the English board of education, who
is in charge of pending educational legislation of
fundamental significance, is quoted :
At the beginning of the war, when first the shortage
of labor became apparent, a raid was made uKin the
schools, a great raid, successful raid, a raid started
liv a large body o'f unreflecting opinion. The result of
that raid upon the schools haa been that hundred of
thousands of children in thia country have been prema
turely withdrawn from school, and have suffered an
irreparable damage, a damage which it will be quite
impossible for us hereafter adequately to repair. That
is a very grave and distressing symptom.
Final place on the broadside is given to a report
of the Iinglish Committee on Juvenile Education
in Relation to lunployment After the War, which
says :
Any inquiry into education at the present junc
ture is big with issues of National fate. In the
yreat work of reconstruction whi)h lies ahead
there are aims to be set before us which will try,
no less searchingly than war itself, the temper and
enduring qualities of our race; and in the realiza
tion of each and all of these, education, with
stimulus and discipline, must be our stand-by. We
have to perfect the civilization for which our men
have shed their blood and our women their tears;
to establish new standards of value in our judge
ment of what makes life worth living, more whole
some and more restrained ideals of behavior and
recreation, finer traditions of cooeration and kind

pursuit of the investigation which he
has made concerning the origin of life
ia aud the peopling of the Islands of
the Pad dr. Tonight tt the Miasion
Memorial, beginning at seven-forty five
o'clock, Professor Brown will tell much
of what he has seen and learned dur
ing those long journeys of tbe "Peo

which Honolulu has felt and displayed
a deep Interest since early In the world
Teacher To Traveler
ft is a long hark from the teaching
of classics and Knglish literature in a
New1 Zealand university to. becoming
me acknowledged authority on th peo
pling of the Pacific, but this is what
Prof. J. Marmillnn Brown lias done.
TVrul far as wn the enll it was almost
as nothing to the immense distances
over which his pursuit of knowledge
has left nun.
It was in 1004 thnt Professor Brown
was .led into an investigatton which
grew into his life work. Interviews
to the newspapers on a visit to the
home of the Msoris in mountain nl
mosrMever before visited by Kuropeans,
led an editor to make him an attrac
five offer for a series of articles on
the Polynesian. From this grew his
work entitled "Maori and Polynesia."
He has ever since continued his
sSudies nnd has esch year visited
some of the reion of the Pacific. A
comparatively sinnll part of his research
work has been gathered into hook form
Investigation Broadens
Professor Brown went through the
islsnds of Japan and spent much time
With tbe Ainu, the pre Japanese resi
dents of those islands, especially, in
Hokkaido. Thence he traveled through
Korea and Mancburis nnd into various
proviures of China. He went through
Chi f ii ami KianJrhau and up into
Shantung, huh on -the Hoang ho. From1
Peking he went beyond the great wall
ami then went south to the Yang tse,
railing up to I chang, and visiting the
moat scenic parts of China. Thence
he went to Hongkong and "Canton and
north to-thsJ fouirtlUit hskd-hr Chinese
immigration, Fu Kien. ' v , -Crosses
Next he turned his attention to
South America, studying Spanish first
in Spain. From Buenos Aires to Cuzno
he traveled overland, thence to Lima
and thence north through Peru visit
ing the ruined cities of the nboriginal
iuhnbitant of South and Central Ani
ens and MexirA). He went 'to the
Soloninu islands, revisited Samoa and
the Fiji lalanda. went to the German,
colonies, Bismarck Archipelago, German
New Guinea, the Caroline Islands, the
Marinunes and the Marshals. In 1914
he traveled through the New Hebrides
ami Banks groups and in 1!H5 he went
through New Caledonia. Next year
he visited the Klise anil Gilbert roups
and in 191 7 was in the Society group.
Austral and the Gambler Islands the
I'aumotus and Marquesas and this year
his research work has brought him here.
Stoddard and similnr lecturers have
not traveled as has Professor Brown,
who is withal, the student and the ot)
server, not the lecturer and the sight

Tbe reason for tbe "knsw" was the
fact thst the bill waa Incurred by
Wharfinger Lovell and was certified to
as correct by Wharfinger Lovell.
When MeUger raised the question of
the regularity of thia "sweeps" bill,
because the man to whom the money
was to be paid "O. Ked" it, Com
missioner Watkins recalled tkatv the
wharf Inspector who had put in the
bill for ii.Oli for carfare had done
the same thing. Thereupon ensued a
learned dissertation as to bills, certified
and uncertified, or certified without
being properly certified, or otherwise.
Taken on Faith
Commissioner Watkins held that all
these Certifications had to be taken
on faith by the board when pasaing
on bills, anyway.
Commissioner Metrger said that this
was all right, but it was bad practise
for the board to pasa on bills certified
to by the employe who performs the
alleged service for which he is to be
paid. Home officer should be respon
sible. Watkins suggested that the chairman
certify to such bills before being pre
sented to tbe board, except where the
hill was incurred under the jurisdiction
nf an engineer or other responsible
officer. Metzger added that someone
beside an employe who sweeps wharves
should certify to bills.
Chairman Lyman H. Bigelow' held
thnt thia' certification by officers was
nil right in Honolulu, "but 111 have
to accept the world of a wharfinger in
Kauai as to the correctness of a bill,"
he added.
Mnst Be Certified
There followed a comparison by Wat
kins of the audit, systems followed by
'government departments and big priv
ate firms. He said that the Audit
Company of Hawaii would not accept
thtl' receipt of "a clerk ' -wlthossf the sig
nal ure of an executive officer. .
It was suggested by. Cnmmissioaer
Metzger that the agenta of the board
on the other islands should be respon
sible for all bills. He accentuated the
fact that it was a bad precedent for
the board to set s division of authority,
and added that all hills to the board
should come through regular channels
to the board.
After considerable discussion as to
how a bill certified to as correct was
sure to be correct, a resolution was
finally passed to the effect that all
bills hereafter, coming before the board
for approval and signed by an employe
having no official standing, be certified
to by the chairman or chief clerk of
the board. .

War Signs Found By
John Effinger
All Oyer California
Pertinent signs regarding war gur
Hens, saving food, aliens and local con
ditions were found all over California
luring John KtHnger 's recent visit to
the Coast, one of which was not only
put out by some of the war councils
but adopted by the Key Houte ferry
cars iu the San Francisco transbay sec
lions, referring to seat for tired men.
This card was addressed to the
"Indies," aud by inference suggested
thnt they finish their bridge parties
and go home early, thus permitting
tired worker an opportunity to ait
instead of standing in cars. The card
was as follows:
"Plea- shop early. If yo will go
home before live o'clock, the Mred
working man will have a chance for a
scat. ' '
The War0aVdes Council had this
'aid on display:
"HiiutHhe Hun without n Gun;
I'laut em,
' ' Weed 'em,
" Kut 'em."
Another reud-:
' ' Don t muck rake,
' ' Hand ruke. ' '
Still another was:
"Stop! Aliens! You must unt rome
nto this store "
There is more than one disappointed
youth in Hawaii today because of in
ability to volunteer iu the service of
I'ncle Sit in.
Marine posters displayed iu many
different points iu the city are in a
Kciise misleading. To judge from these
posters one would think that it i ail
ml v ei t isi nieut to join the Marines but
its only vulue is that of u patriotic
picl inc.
Since the uriny ruling reached local
liciiiiiiiHitirs putting a bun ou eulist
incuts the only way of gettiug into
the veriice is by the draft. With
regard To the marine one can get in
ofiljr' if lie' is reenlisting.
