VISIT OF PROMOTERS
Kauai lias heen inspected by and
lias inspected tlic Hawaii Promotion
Wo have heard at first hands
what the committee is trying and hop
Ins to accomplish, what the other
islands have been and are doing for
the committee and what the commit
tee expects of Kauai.
Wo like tlte committee over here.
Thy arc about as well rounded-out
specimens of jolly optimism as have
struck the beach in moons;aud their
visit, taken together with unpreccd
cntedly high sugar, has h IX us in fine
Just how much pood the committee
accomplished on its tout we are unable
to say at present; but the visit has
certainly resulted in a better under
standing at both ends of the line and
that is a great deal. Kauai is not,
nor has it ever been, oppost d to the
campaign for tourists, although some
members of the commit tee seems pos
itive that such was the question and
that, may have been mistaken for op
osition. And there is a reason for that apa
thy, i. e.; Not one person in a thousand
on Kauai, perhaps, is either directly
or indirectly seriously affected, or like
ly to bo, by tourist traflic. When we
have more men interested in hotels,
garages, resorts and the like we will
uav more boosters for tourists.
However, conditions here are chang
ing rapidly and what may be true now
may not obtain a year hence. Harden
The Hawaii case (of the murderer,
Molina) serves again to direct atten
tion to one growing evil in the territo
ry the carrying of concealed weap
ons. Something should bo done in
the way of sternly repressive meas
ures against, this practice. The Span
ish murderer was fined $1.", and allow
ed to go. In every case where a man
is caught with a deadly we apon lurk
ing about him, the police might well
make enough investigation to find out
whether ho is a desperado or a man
of some balance.
As the Slar-liullotin has said be
fore, sooner or later Hawaii has got
to take away these weapons from ir
responsible hands, and long ago ordin
ary intelligence in p()iiee affairs
should have taught the various coun
ty governments to stop the Indiscrim
inate sale of knives and firearms.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
There has been no change in the
condition of the egg market during
the past week. The demand is fairly
good prices steady. Duck oggs
have dropped le.
The demand for poultry in good con
dition is good, especially for roasting
The Island supply of cabbages is
still short. Sweet corn is beginning
to arrive in larger quantities, and a
few watermelons are coming in. Some
Iiermuda onions are being received
but the crop this year will be small.
Tomatoes, cucumbers and string beans
are getting more plentiful each week.
Some very good alligator pears rece
ived from Kona this week. Chinese
bananas are still a drug on the market
but are not quite so plentiful as they
were about two weeks ago. Large
Mexican limes are selling well at good
prices. The rough skinned Japanese
limes is a poor seller and should not
be planted except for homo use.
The Division litis been able to dis
pose of large quantities of beef and
veal lately at good prices. Some of
the meat has been rather poor and
consequently brought a lower price.
Shippers should not kill poor stock.
When shipping veal do not quarter
the carcass but leave it in halves.
There has been very slow sale for
pork during the last two weeks, and
shippers are advised not to send any
more until the present supply is sold.
There is good sale for live turtle at
about 2c a pound. The Division could
probably use a dozen of these a week.
Any farmer having sheep for sale
would do well to notify the Division
as we often have calls for sheep.
The Division expects to receive an
other large shipment of Soudan grass
seed on the 25th, which can be sold
at $15,00 per 100 pounds or 20c a
pound in smaller quantities. This
grass is gaining favor with stockmen
all over the Islands.

GRAVE ROBBERS ON KAUAI
The grave of the late All Chock, the
wealthy merchant of Kapaia who died
a year ago, was opened by some pet
son or persons unknown between
Thursday night and Sunday. The pol
ice have been working on the matter
but have thus far discovered no clue.
The circumstances indicate that the
persons opening the grave thought
that jewelry, and perhaps oilier valua
bles, had been burled with the body of
Ah Chock, and the miscreants were
alter taking it away. H is learned
that, nothing was there, however, sothe
would thieves were wholly unre
warded. Crave-rohbing is an unusual thing
in the Islands, and there is a law
against such acts.
Ah Chock was the founder of numer
ous business concerns in and about
Kapaia, and when ho died was worth
quite a little money. Garden Island.
A NEW YORK VRINKLE
Every school child of school ago at
tending tin- Ninole School will be re
quired to obtain a certificate from the
teacher whenever such child wants to
be excused from school for a day or
so and the police are warned to ask
for such a certificate whenever he sees
any child not tit tending school on
school days, fiy such a method it is
expected to lessen our absentees
rrom school if the police ollicer co
operates with the teachers and ofrces
every school child who does not show
his excuse certificate from the school
to attend school regularly. This meth
od is working very well in Honomu
and we see no reason why it should
not work at Ninole. Kohala Midget.

If the Federal Wireless Company
does enter into comnctition in Rend

dreadful crime. No competition want

to take any but an Inter-Island Steam

Kawaihae-by-the-ripiiling-tide is the
great finishing port of this end of the
Island; every night the graceful samp
ans glide into the harbor, with their
scent, of fish and gasoline blending
romantically in the still moonlight.
WASEDAS FAILED TO ARRIVE
The Waseda University baseball
team, which was expected to arrive
from Honolulu on Wednesday for
games with a local picked nine tomor
row and Sunday, did not come. Loc
al Japanese, who had been interested
in the plan, had guaranteed expenses
for the visitors from Japan, but word
comes that the team, altouch not
winning enough to be noticeable, are
still drawing down some gate receipts
in Honolulu, and hence cannot be
persuaded to leave.
WOULD CHANGE DATE
James D. Dougherty, an ex-director
of the Mid-Pacific Caunival, in tr,n
address before the Rotary Club, last
week, advocated holding the Mid
Pacific Carnival on June 11, instead
of on February 22, as at present. He
argues that the Islands do not need
this stimulus to bring tourists here
during the winter months, but do need
it during the summer, when the im
pression prevails that the Islands are
not a fit place to visit on account of
