The citizens of this Island at the
present moment are very much in
terested in the fate of the appro
priation passed by the Legislature
for a wharf at Hanalei.
For a number of Sessions an, ap
propriation, or bill, has been under
consideration for the purpose of
erecting a wharf at this famous
beach, but not withstanding the
reputation of our Kauai Legis
lators and their ability to "do
things," until the last Session
they were certainly "done"- out of
landing the means to provide for
Within the last two years
necessity for this wharf has

its construction having been met,
it was hoped that by providing for
it's erection out of the general ap
propriation bill, next winter would

Recently the reports that have
come from the Capitol by word of
mouth, and newspapers, in refer
ence to many public questions, are
of such a nature as to cause us
Garden Islanders to drop our hoes
long enough to listen for not only
the buzz of the Mediterranean fly,
but with ears to the ground to get
a line on whither the course of
Empire is tending.
We are told that our high offi
cials are contemplating an attempt
to thwart the will of the people as
expressed by their representatives
in Legislature assembled.
Being simple rural people, we
are inclined to doubt the existence
of any grounds to warrant even
the intimation of such "goings on"
at a time in this political age when
the primary law, the initiative, re
ferendum and recall are meanacing
the downfall of anyone or any
thing which is not "of the people,

Burglars entered the Koloa Plan
tation Store sometime Saturday
night, gaining an entrance through
the office. The burglars were evi
dently frightened in the early stage
of the game, as a kit of burglars'
tools consisting of a crow-bar, a
pick, several knives, and an electric
flash light were found. Goods to
the value of about sixty dollars
were taken, including a quantity
of perfumery. Some little change
which had been left in the money
drawers was also taken. A monkey
' wrench which had been taken from
the show case was found lying near the
be- I safe, and it is thought an attempt
anQ" i had been made to open the safe. No
clew was left by which a trace
could be found of the burglars.
This is the third attempt at rob
bery within the last six weeks.
