Plans of Kauai Committee Taking
Shape Strenuous Two Days Pro
The fourth annual civic convention,
which meets on Kauai this year, on
September 2C and 27, promises to he
a very busy nffair. Reports indicate
that a pretty big program is being ar
ranged, nnd this must be gotten into
two days insfrad of three or four as
heretofore. However, It is quite cer
tain that tlmo will not hang heavy on
the hands of the delegates. In speak
ing or the plans of the program com
mittee, tho harden Island says:
"It wns decided to have ono gen
eral theme toward which the conven
tion would bear, the set speeches be
ing of a character to come under it.
The general subject practically decid
ed upon was "Civic Righteousness."
It Is understood that the committee
has developed from this subject num
erous lines of discussion which will
prove of immediate interest to every
island in the group.
"The decision was reached that the
seven latera's to this subject should
he handled by seven speakers two
from Hawaii, one from Maul, two from
Oahu and one from Kauai.
"Of course in addition to this feat
ure of the literary committee, there
will be reports and the usual other
bii3lness of the convention, besides a
lot of new business.
The liternry program committee was
of the opinion that tho convention
should proceed at onco to business on
the first day, despite the fact mat it
is Sunday. They favor siarting work
at 9 A. M., perfecting organization and
jotting through with as much work as
possible by 1 P. M., adjourning then
for lunch. The afternoon would bo
devoted to sightseeing and then there
would be a reception in the evening.
Monday morning would be given to
business, the afternoon to sightseeing
and entertainments of various sorts,
and Monday evening to a public re
ception and final "jollification" prior
to the departure of tho excursion

that ho was held in San Francisco on
charge of manslaughter, on account of
an nutomoblle accident, will bo glad
to learn that tho accident was not so

up the hospital immediately on arrival
at my office to find out the extent of
the injury of the man. They had pot
yet completed examination. A plain

him to call on the Chief of Police.
There they searched me and locked
me up, pending reports as to whether
or not the man would die. This was
Saturday afternoon and when I recov
