KAUAI MAY GET HELP THE BAND- A NEW HOME
QUARANTINE IS jC. E. HOLDS A
OWN WIRELESS: ITS YOUR DUTY!
FOR WIRELESS ANCIENT HISTORY
Rumor to Effect That an Independent Stc- i
tion be Built Kauai Telephonic Co.
May Take a Hand.
Whether the Kauai Planters are
jointly, collectively or individually
responsible for the rumor that
Kauai is to have an independent
wireless system, no one seems to
know, but this much is known,
however, that on January first,
the Kauai Planters will discontinue
their support to the present com
pany in so far as a monthly
stipend for the "daily news" is
concerned. To a reporter, Man
ager lialch expressed himself as in
darkness as to any reason the
planters might have for taking
such a stand, and added that the
"press" would also be cut out,
unless it wished to come through
with fifty dollars per month for
wireless privileges. Now as the
"press,'.' in this instance, means
"us," we feci it incumbent upon
"us" to tell where we stand. The
cutting out process could be ap
plied without a ripple, but who
ever heard of an editor having
fifty dollars (during his life time)
much less each month.
We appreciate the advantages
which the wireless affords, but the
class of news which is dealt out
to the Kauai press daily, if pub
lished in detail, would make suit
able matter for a comic supple
ment. As an illustration, yester
day's wireless contained the won
derful statement that "Teddy says
he won't support Taft or any other
candidate, that he will not be a con
didate himself." How interesting
this is to Kauai! This sort of slush
is dished up to the Hawaii and
Maui papers in four column doses,
.sometimes seven days old, but this
is Kauai, and a search through the
columns of Kauai's paper, will fail
to reveal any very large amount of
space devoted to "wireless news."
We arc aiming at a strictly local
news disseminator and arc not the
least dependent upon the present
wireless system only as a space
filler. As to the possibility of an inde
pendent wireless plant, the sugges
tion seems to be an excellent one.
The present local Telephone Co.,
for instance is in a position to con
struct such a plant, as the grounds
in the rear of the central office
would afford ample room for the
mast. Another advantage this Co. ,
would have over others would be
that it would have its exclusive
telephone service over which to
transmit its messages.
The present Wireless Co. , is said,
to realize from two to three hundred
dollars per month from Kauai busi
ness. With the expense of erecting
the station and the salary of an
operator, this income would offer
sufficient inducement to cause in"
vestors to give the suggestion of an
all Kauai Wireless Station, more
than passing consideration.
Grove Farm Tries
Grove Farm has set the worthy
example which will doubtless be!
largely followed of using re-in-forctd
concrete fence posts. They
are about 4 in. square with a
slight taper which gives them a'
very comely aspect. The -wires,
are attached by a very simple yet;
ingenious fastening devised b y '
Mr. E. W. Broadbent. The result
is a very neat and very durable
fence the cost of which is very
little greater than that o f the
ordinary wire fence, '
Every Citizen Should Show His or Her
Appreciation of Our Local Band With
a generous contribution.
The Lihue Rand has issued its
annual invitations to our citizens,
soliciting donations towards the
support of the band.
It is the duty of every citizen to
contribute his mite towards aiding
this splendid organization. Like
everything else on Kauai, our band
takes second place to none in the
territory, From a very wee begin
ning, the band, through the gciie
rou.sityof our citizens and untiring
efforts of the members of the band,
has grown to its present importance.
The appreciation of our band is
largely portrayed in the beautiful
band stand, a piece of architecture
far surpassing anything of the kind
in the Territory. Further apprecia
tion is shown in the purchase of a
set of new instruments a few months
ago, at a cost of nearly thirteen
hundred dollars, the amount being
furnished 'by volunteer coi.trita
Let us be as generous, if not even
more so on this occasion than any in
the past. Let us show the band
boys that we appreciate them and are
more than willing to contribute to
the maintenance of our band. If
we cannot give a large amount, let
us give all we can. If you have re
ceived the formal notice, take stock
of your cash on hand, and see just
how much you can spare, then see
how quickly you can spare it.
