The Kauai-Maui bowling con
test which took place Saturday
afternoon and evening the Maui
team playing in the afternoon and
the home team in the evening
was the first contest ever pulled
off between these two Islands, and
consequently created much inter
est. Considering the amount of prac
tice the Maui team has had their
scpre is a very creditable one,
while on'the pther hand little can
be said' in way of an excuse for
the home team's fall-down. It
was a case of interest running high
and scores, running low.
. A few minutes to eight o'clock,
the crpwd having about all show
ed up. the team lined up and at
eight, with Paul Schmidt as judge,
C. Maser sent the first ball over
the line and the contest was on.
The g'a.irie was marked with
much enthusiasm despite the ap
parent inability to,.strike and spare
nt will, the bovs makintrdeteriuined
efforts to the verv last inning to 1
do- their utmost. Fate was
unkind to them however and
wJrile) jthey had not yet heard of
Maui'sSGore,4thcy felt pretty sure
that their own would not be diffi
c tt 1 1 to beat. A wireless re
ceived Sdnday morning announced
the Maui's score, which also signal
ized Kauai's defeat.
A feature which greatly added
to the contest, was the offer of a
beautiful stein by the Kegel Club
W the player getting the highest
score during the contest. H.
Wolters captured this handsome
troph ' with the score of 152 4-5.
A number of visitors were pre
sent among- whom w ere Paul
Schmidt, Mr. Waggoner and Mr.
Howell. Mr. Schmidt as judge,
acquitted himself with distinction,

TRUANT LI CAUSE
Reprimand From Court and Suspension of

In Each Case-
MAIL IN BREAKDOWN
Accident Partly Due to Dangerous Rail
Road Crossing Which Should Have
Judge Dole's court was the scene
of much activity last Thursday,
there being the heads of three
families of our Portuguese popu
lace up for an opportunity to ex
plain their contempt and apparent
disregard for the "truant law"
The cases were in connection
with the Lihue school, con
sequently Miss Mumford was there
for the prosecution and so well
was her case established that a
plea of guilty was rendered by the
offending trio who in turn were
each given a suspension of sen
tence for thirteen months.
Supervising Principal Brodie's,
presence was also found helpful,
as he was able to explain a few
minor points in connection with
The Portuguese parents, as a rule,
do not fully realize the importance
of education. They are too apt to
mis-state facts in connection with
the age of their children, that the
child may sooner become a bread
earner. The Portuguese children are
naturally bright, and the attitude
of their parents in regard to their
education, blights the prospects
of many a promising young lad.
It is only when one hesitates long
enough to consider the fact that the
present school boy is our hope for
the future upholding of Territo
rial affairs that the gravity of the
offense of these thoughtless parents,
itself in the proper eight.
A BIG SHIPMENT
OF KAUAI CATTLE
Two hundred head of prize-win
ning yearling Sussex heifers were
delivered on board an Inter-Island
steamer here last week, being pro
ducts of the W. II. Rice Ranch,
and destined for Lanai. This is
the largest bunch of cattle disposed
of here at once for some time.
MAIL CAR MEETS
WITH BIG PILIKIA
Waimea Mail Car No. 38 while
bound for Nawiliwili the other
evening began skidding when the
driver applied the brakes with the
result that the car turned complete
ly round, the right rear wheel com
ing in contact with the embank
tnent with such force that the axle
snapped off near the inner rim of
the wheel. Ihe driver was ap
proacinng tne rail-road crossing
below Hotel hairview and was ap
plying his brakes for such when
the accident occurred.
This crossing is the worst on the
island and whoever is responsible
for its condition, would do well .to
give it their attention.
TO BIRD SHOW
W. H. Rice, Jr, will have sev
eral choice birds in the Hawaiian
Poultry Show this year. Satur
day' s Kinau carried a coop of
Orpingtons which surely should
give the tirst prize winners a close
rub. Mr. Rice is becoming quite
a chicken fancier, the various
specimens found in his pens, be
speaking most excellent judgment.

It seems that the Japanese enter
ed tne Kapaia pool room, and
after attempting to provoke mem
bers of a crowd of Filipinos who
were playing pool, to a "fight,"
he pulled a wicked looking table '
knife from his clothes, gave it a
wild brandish and with a vile ex
pression flung himself out through 1
the door. His conduct while in I
the hall had been such as to arouse j
curiousity without, and among
those who had gathered outside'
was a Filipino boy, who unfortu
nately was standing close by the
side walk, and as the drunken brute '
passed, without cause, whatever, man' C!lsts ,lu-' -Silie persons-and

manner as to permit the blood to .
pass directly trom tne lung to the
surface. The would-be murderer,
secreted himself in a near-by build-
ing where he was later found by
the police, who had hurried to the
scene of trouble.
The Filipino was taken to the
hospital, and the Jap to jail.
Much excitement followed im
mediately upon the murderous at
tack. .Missiles otevcry descrip -
tion were hurled at and through
the window, leaving the building
very much of a wreck.
The Japanese is a member of a1
gang of loafers who is said to ex-:
ist chiefly through this gambling'
propensities and whose nefarious,
work has been carried on with a
greater degree of success since the '
establishment of the pool room.
To a reporter, a prominent neigh
bor said that Kapaia had always '
been a nice place to live in until
the opening of this pool room.
I hat his opinion is shared by
by the community in general was
evidenced by others who spoke in
the same strain. 1 he officials will
probably investigate conditions and
if they hud grounds for action in
the matter will, take steps to re
medy the cause.

TO MEXICO'S LAW
Mexico is threatened with a new
menace. This time it is the red
skins. They are up in arms chief
ly on account of actions upon the
part of the Mexican government
in dispossessing them o f their
. lands. They are in open rebellion
and repudiate the existinir ai'rei-
nient with the government, and
ask tor the return of the land As
a rule the Yaqui Indian is a
peaceful individual, b u t being
possessed with a high degree of
justice is quick to resent anv at
tempt to encioach upon his rights
hence the periodical uprising of
this fast diminishing tribe.
A beautiful new, modern church
is in hand for Hanalei to be erect

old church. The building is to be

will be Gothic in style, the plans
