Mans's Feet Becomes Entangled In Rope
Is Dragged For Some Distance By
C. E. Society Has Meet
M. Y. Fernandes Accepts Position
The Makaweli Store-Hanalei Vege
(Special to the Garden Island)
Moi.oaa, July 16. A Japanese
lies in the Kilauea hospital literally
hacked to pieces as the result of
being dragged for several hundred
yards by a frightened horse
attached to a plow. The unfortu
nate man's feet had become entan
gled in the rope lines and together
with the plow, he was hurled along
the Moloaa hill at a terrific speed
until, on rounding a corner, a
Japanese who had seen the acci
dent, managed to stop the horse.
Joseph I, the Hanalei Mail carrier,
happened along at this juncture,
and cutting the rope from the man's
legs, loaded him into a wheel bar
row and conveyed him to the house
of a near by neighbor, who at once
summoned medical aid. The man
was unconscious and bleeding pro
fusely. He was later removed to
the Kilauea hospital, where he is
reported to be in a critical condi
tion. The injured man is a rice
planter in this community.

Et,Kiii.K, July 16. M. V. Fer
nandes, who has been chief clerk

year and a half, has resigned to
accept a position with the Maka
weli Store. Mr. F e r u a u d e s ,
through liis successful efforts to
please the many patrons of the
Eleele Store, has made hosts of
friends who regret to see him leave
and who extend their best wishes
for his success in his new field.
Mr. and Mrs. Fernandes have taken
much interest in the social doings
of the vicinity during their resi
dence here and it is sincerely hoped
that they will find time to at least
continue their interest in the
monthly Pedro Club.

ciety held one of its customary an
nual socials on Saturday evening
last, to one of the largest assem
blages ever seen here, fully eighty
people gathering to take part in the

and games, which were indulged in
by old folks as well. One of the
most laughable incidents of t h e
evening was a game Marching to
Jerusalem." i n which Mr. Hen
Vickers carried off the honors
which entitled him to a free trip to
the old country with the latest
stock of foot-wear.
After two hours' of merry mak
ing, light refreshments were served.

The desk and telephone in Judge
Dole's Court room were reduced
to ashes and the side of the room
and ceiling badly scorched Friday
night at about 11 o'clock
Mr. W. Ilobron was the first to
notice the fire. He was looking
out of the window at his home,
when he noticed a light in the
Court House. Deciding that some
thing was wrong, he sallied forth,
armed with his pistol and accom
panied by his little daughter, to
the Court-House. Here he saw
that the flames were blazing up in
a way that meant business. He
hurried down to the jail and re
ported the matter to Peter Malina,
the jailer. Mr. Malina released
the prisoners and the company
rushed to the Court House where
they battered down the door,
formed a bucket brigade and soon
succeeded in extinguishing the fire,
the origin or cause of which no
one seems to suspect. Like the
Gakdkn Island Fire, it is com

Some Interesting Notes
Of Waimea Doings
Waimka, July 9. Miss Virgie
Silva is still drilling her basket ball
team and it is possible that a series
may be formed at the expiration of
the present base-ball series.
Inspector Cook is in Waimea on
official business connected with the
board of health. Manv shacks are
to be replaced with new ones and
there is every likelihood that Wai
mea will soon be reckoned as t h e
cleanest town on Kauai.
The Makaweli Plantation shut
d o w u to-day in memory of the
death of Hon. H. P. Haldwin.
G. Kamauoha, of Kona , is the
guest of his son in-law, Deputy
Sheriff W. O. Crowell. He will re
turn next week, after having made
atrip to the many different points
of interest on the island.

A Fine Of Five Hundred Dollars For
Shipping Pears To Coast-Important
(Special to the Garden Island)
Waimka, July 9. For the first
time within a year, the Waimea base
ball team crossed bats with the Ke
kaha nine on the Kekaha diamond
to-day the result being a "Water
Loo" for the Waimeas, the score
being 8 to 7, with one of the tight
est games seen here for many aday.
With Ah Fong and Kasu for Keka
ha and Joe and Waterhouse for
Waimea as batteries, the visiting
team led by a very close margin,
thus creating a great deal of excite
ment. In the sixth inning, Ku.
an old time ball tosser, sent Ah
Fong into the air stranding his op
ponents. Both teams played classy
ball with a tied score in the ninth
inning. With hands down a n d
first and second bases occupied,
Kaila drove a bee line to shortstop,
which passed every one who tried
to block it. This allowed the Ke
kaha man to reach home and the
game was Kekahas. A fair crowd
visited the game and much credit
was given to the umpiring of Louis
Kekiuhi and the scoring ot Keola
Makini. The time of the game
was one hour and forty-five min
utes. Italian Labor For
Pl ins are now on foot to import
Italian labor for the can.: fields, ac- i
cording to what is considered au-1
thwiitic reporl. The large corpo
ration, csp.-eially the railroads, in
the states are in manv instances,
almost entirely dependent unon the
Italian laborers, and if thev make
successful labor in such instances,
it is very probable that an attempt
to supply our planters with a sat
isfactory class of labor from this
source, would prove a paying ex
periment. Bugs Are Reported
To Be Killing Beets
It is rumored that a reason f o r
the sharp advance in sugar can b e
traced to a bug, which has gotten
into the beet lands and is destroy
j ing the crop.
K. A. A. Is Now
! A Branch Of A. A. U.
One of the most important meet
ings ever held by the members o f
the Kauai Athletic Association was
that which was held at the Hotel
Fairview on last Saturday evening,
when the directors voted to become
a branch of the A. A. U., and to be
known in the future as such. This
action upon the part of the direct
ors, puts the required endorsement
on the records which were made
here on the Fourth, which are now
to stand as the first track meet re
cords ever established in the islands
under the auspices of the A. A. l
Another interesting feature of the i
meeting was the treasurer's report,
which showed a total collection of '
S723.15; bills paid, S530.25; unpaid
bills. $225.50 and cash on hand to
the amount of S192.90.
Owing t o his departure for the
coast within a few weeks, Treasur-'
er Smith tendered his resignation,
the same to take effect at once. Mr.
Smith has served as treasurer o f
the Association since its organiza
tion, having discharged his duties
in a highlv satisfactory manner, '

Sox tried to even up but all they
could get was one run T. Pacheco
sent out to pitcher to first. Huddy
struck out G. Akana singled and
reached second on a passed ball.
Kerr made a safety on a wild throw
and Akana scored. Werner died
short to first.
"in the ninth inning Lihue came
j near making a run but it was
disallowed because after two had
l been out a man on first and one
' on third the runnel going to second
interfered with the called ball ac
cording to the umpire. With the
exception of a few close decisions
the game was the best played this
year being nip and tuck all the way
through with no team having
a walk away.
