the momentary showers that drove
across the reviewing grounds at Ka
piolani park, and the discomfiture
from the few drops that fell was not
at the actual rain but at the prospect-that
it might last. The arrange

Fitting Exercises In Memory
On the afternoon of February
22nd, tlio faculty and pupilB of
Maunaolu Summary held appro
priate exercises in honor of
Washington's birthday. All pre
sent wore badges of red, white and
blue, and small paper nat diets, on
which a hunch of cherries was
On the wall hung the pictures of
Washington and Lincoln draped
with the Stars and Stripes, while
on the blackboards could be seen
Hues which portrayed the noble
traits of character in each.
It was evident from the- enthu
siasm which was manifested
through the exercises that Mauna
olu Seminary was not lacking in
the true spirit of patriotism. .
Soon after tho conclusion of the
program a Tennis Tournament was
in order. It, was a contest between
classos. The first set was between
the fourth and sixth grades, the
players being Charlotte Gibson
and .Young Kin Lair. Ho acainst
Sarah Kalawaia and Ebie Crowell,
then played Mabel Naoneand Rose
Noah of the seventh grade, and
were again the victorious, ones.
The victors then played a set of
singles, and after a hard fought
battle the prize was awarded to
Elsie Crowell, as the Champion of

Sir: I have the honor to express
to you in this way my appreciation
of your work during the encamp

have been characterized by enthusi

at all times been intelligently
directed. The detachment of the

drilled, well diciplined, and well
instructed and show the results of
conscientious work. To your energy
and constant attention to details is
largely due the excellent sanitary

and School Age.
The proposition made by Senator
W. 0. Smith to set the age for be
ginning school attendance at eight
years instead of six as at present
sounds like a bid for more jail room
and reformatory schools.
In this progressive age when, the
desirability of having kindergarten
schools made a part of the public
school system lias been and is being
discussed by world leaders in educa
tional work, the proposition of Sen
ator Smith sounds more like a sug
gestion to snuff tho light in order to
save the Candle, and to try to read
by firelight which is hard on the
eyes, and is a losing and wearing
proposition all around.
If the drain for school work is
straining our slender financial re
sources near to the breaking 'point,
why not relax the strict educational
laws a little and permit Japanese
and Chineso to send their children
to' private schools where Japanese
and Chinese are tought, thereby re
live the public schools ofswne of its
work? Why compel these aliens
who prefer their own schools to send
their children to the public schools?
If they want to let them stay by
their own language and customs,
and why bar our children from
public schools until eight years of
age to make room for aliens who
don't want to?
Matters of Interest Before
the District Magistrate.
The charge of assult made by a
Japanese woman against officer Ka
ilianu -of Waikapu was dismissed by
Judge McKay Wednesday morning.
County Attorney Coke objected
vigorously at the way the matter
was being carried forward over ' his
head through the employment of
private counsel by complaining wit
ness to prosecute defendant. Judge
McKay stated he wanted to examine
the evidence before granting the
nolle pirns asked by the County
prosecutor and cut off further dis
cussion by dismissing the charge. It
is said the complaining witness in
tends to bring the matter before the
grand jury next month.
Alfred Rodriques of Waiehu is
charged with larceny in the second
degree. The complaint was made
by the Wailuku Sugar Company. It
is alleged the defendant had stolen,
various pieces of lumber belonging
to the company, and the principal'
witness for the prosecution was the
defendant's step-son, a boy about
ten or more years of age. The de
fendant, Rodriques, runs a small
milk dairy business with his wife,
formerly Mrs. Correa, and the stol
en lumber formed part of a cow
shed recently built' by defendant
near the beach at Waiehu. When
brought before Judge McKay the
defendant, represented by Correa
and Vivas, Attorneys, asked for a
trial by jury and was duly com
mitted to, the next grand jury term.
A hold up man, a Porto Rican
named Salvador Lopez, was arrested
on complaint of Owe, who accuses
defendant of robbing him of .flU.oO,
at a place this si'de of Waihee where
the cane flume crosses the public
road. Lopez .vas accompanied by
another Porto Rican who is willing
to testify for the prosecution. Tho
defendant indignantly declares he is
no robber, and that he had merely
touched the Japanese carpenter Owes
for a loan as a friend. The case will
bo heard today.
Mr. Keawo of Kahakuloa Com
plains that John Ereitas of Waihee
had stolen 'his pig. The ease will
be tried Monday morning, the pig,
a little serawry thing of the razor
back type, was found in possession
of the defendant at Waihee, and is
in the custody of the police to be
presented as evidence in court, if
not entirely eaten up by fleas before
the hearing takes pliyce.
Mr. A. Borba Jr. and Mr. Fergu
son, earo taker of Mr. Marshal's
Makaliua homestead, are having
some differences over iMiundary lines
and fences. Recently Mr. Kanaka
Utii, the government surveyor, went
over the ground and relocated the
boundaries sustaining, so it is claim
ed, Mr. Borba 'h contention. It is
said Mr. Ferguson has threatened to
uphold his claim by force and keep
Air. Borba from removing tho fenc
ing objected to, and the latter has
appealed to the County Sheriff to
protect him in the exercise of what
lie claims to be his rights.
THE GUM TIIEATIJB.
The program presented by this theatre
during the past performances 1ms been
up to tht high standard of excellence.
Nothing out ot the way is ever shown at
the Geui ami nothing that one need hesi
tate about taking his wile or daughter to
see. There is always fun galore nt the
Gent and just enough of the sorrowful
kind of pictures to act as a foil to the
more hilarious subjects which are- shown
on the sheet.
Dou't forget that the Gem is now locat
ed in the Aluli building, Market street,
where they will perform every Saturday
and Wednesday evenings, Tonight's
program is well worthy of a visit, Ad
