--Dies at 70.
The unexpected news of the
death of George H. Dole, of River
side, California, on the 18th of
February, received in Lihue on
the 19th., was a painful shock to
his numerous friends and relatives
here. He died very suddenly at
his home in Riverside, death being
due to heart failure.
Mr. Dole was the elder son of
Rev. and Mrs. Daniel Dole, re
sidents of the state of Maine before
they came out to the Islands in
1841 as missionaries, and was
born the 6th day of June, 1842,
seventy years ago, at Punahou
College, near Honolulu, where his
father was the first president.
He grew to manhood here on
Kauai, at Koloa, to which village
his father moved from Punahou in
1854, and he has many friends
ho remember the up-right, whole
souled, enterprising young man
that he. was. He was,', always gen-
reaay to ao any, aci ui numanuy
- A - fV- t 1 il.--
f In August, 1867, he was united
in marriage to Miss Clara M.
Rowell a daughter of the Rev.
G. B. Rowell of Waimea, Kauai,
and this union proved a most
happy one. Mr. Dole is still well
'remembered by many who once
resided in Koloa, where he was
for several years connected with
the Koloa Plantation Company in
the capacity of head luna. In 1872
he moved t o Honolulu again,
where he was called to take the
principalship of the Honolulu In
dustrial School, over which he
presided with marked success for
In 1876 he became connected
rith the editorial staff of the
Hawaiian Gazette Company, where
he remained two years, leaving in
1878 to accept the appointment as
manager of the Makee Sugar Com
pany's Plantation at Kapaa, Kauai,
whither he brought his family of
seven children and remained at
the head of its affairs from the
time it was first organized by Cap
tain Makee up through its firm es
tablishment as a dividend paying
plantation, for eleven years to
1889. In 1887 he served with cre
dit a term as noble in the upper
house of the legislature of the
kingdom, representing Kauai.
In the year 1889, however, his
last year on the plantation, after
sending his two oldest sons to
college at Cornell University in
New York State, and b y that
time realizing that it would be
Ti very difficult to give all his chil
dren, now increased in number
to twelve, the education which he
desired for them, he gave up his
plantation interests and moved to
Southern California, where he es
tablished himself as an orange
grower in the city of Riverside,
and later conducted a real estate
and insurance business. One more
son wastorn here.
Mrs. Dole and their thirteen chil
dren, ten sons and three daugh-

granddaughters, survive him, and

HANALEI WHARF NOT
Hanalei Citizens Dislike The
Idea of Toting Freight
MRS. KANEHIWA DIES
The Ilima Club Gives Unique
Dance in The Makaweli
Special to The Garden IttanJ,
Hanauu, Feb. 29. If what is
said by those who profess to know
is true, the Hanalei wharf when
complete will be far from what it
should be. It seems that the
wharf will be but six feet above
the water which is said to be so
near that the waves will easily
flood it. Another objection to the
wharf is that all freight will neces
sarily have to be carried the entire
length of the wharf 550 feet,
there being no provision for any
railway track to the end of the
wharf. Under the o 1 d system,
freight was dumped on to the
beach, being taken and received at
the water's edge. The new sys
tem means a lot of freight unload
ed at the end of a five hundred
and fifty foot wharf from whence
it must be carried to wagons. On
the other hand it means that the
thousands of bags of rice and
paddy must be carried that dis
tance before it can be loilded.
What the people here would like
to see, and feel entitled to is a
railroad track on the wharf.

The decoration's were unique, the

thing out of the ordinary in dances
was introduced which added spice
to the occasion.
These included the moonlight

Kealia is Scene o f Enthusiastic Gathering To
Witness Kauai's First Floral Parade At
The Valley House
TWELVE BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED CARS IN PARADE
That Kauai can do things for
the amusement of her own people
was clearly demonstrated last
Thursday when one of the most
successful floral parades ever pull
ed off in the Territory was held,
owners from all parts of the island
participating. Hon. R. 1 and
Mrs. Spalding were the originators
of the idea, consequently the pa
rade was given at their beautiful
valley house, where participants
and spectators thronged to witness
the occasion. Not the least pleas
ing feature of the affair was the
fact that all entries were by the
ladies, each of whom had, entirely
unassisted, decorated her own car.
Those entering, together with a
brief description of the decorations
Mrs. Arthur Rice with her little
Hupmobile litterally buried in a
profusion of beautiful African dai
sies, received first prize.
Mrs.B.D. Baldwin, with dainty
Cherry blossom decorations, carry
ing out to the very last detail, the
Japanese finest artistic touch, was
winner of second prize.
Mrs. W. H. Rice Sr., winner of
third prize, carried pink rosebud
deqorntionsj'-which-were tastily ar
ranged, in the midst of which ap
peared a bride. A reproduction of
her big Locomobile was carried out
even to a miniature driver who oc
cupied the seat, all fitted out in
gauntlets and leather coat. The
completeness of detail in arranging
the decorations, was the motive for
much praise of Mrs. Rice's efforts
Mrs. Dr. Putman's car appeared
in a gorgeous Christmas array,
depicting Old St. Nick in all his
glory, and was the source of merri
ment and praise.
Mrs. Philip Rice's car with red
gauze and white flower decorations,
lent a touch of extreme delicacy to
the affair which elicited the admi
ration of everybody. A large but
terfly gracefully at ease among the
flowers, added much to the natural
ness of the scheme.
Mrs. J. H. Coney's car was
bedecked in red, green and white
garlands which, together with their
artistic arrangements, produced a
most pleasing effect.
Mrs. Purvis decorated her car in
Lavender and white. The scheme
was carried out to the last detail
and was productive of much praise.
Mrs. Ralph Wilcox had the dis
tinction of having the choicest of
all natural flowers in the parade,
her car appearing a perfect bower
of English daisies, violets a n d
maiden hair fern. The car was in
deed a beauty and a close candidate
for a prize.
Mrs. Gaylord P. Wilcox had
her car smothered i n Shasta
daisies and a generous supply of
pink, silk cushions, all which seem
ed to invite one in for a peaceful
joy ride. The effect was most
pleasing and indiciative of much
planning on the part of the origina

Miss Bemice Hundley brought
her car under the tape, wreathed in
small begonias and numerous
butterflies. Six pretty dolls were
receiving their first joy ride. Aside
from the very attractive decora
tions, much amusement was created
by the presence of the dolls.
With red geraniums on a white
ground, Mrs. Dr. Hofmann's car
came in for its share of praise, be
ing one of the prettiest cars in line.
Mrs. R. P. Spalding's car, with
a pretty combination of maiden
hair fern, shasta daisies and gar
lands, artistically clusteied t o -gether,
was the subject of m u c h
admiration and well deserving of
the many praises it received.
The prizes were composed o f
three small cups a n d as many
banners, the winners of whom
Mrs. Arthur Rice, first prize.
Mrs. B. D. Baldwin, second prize
Mrs. W. H. Rice Sr., third prize.
The judges were C. O. Smith,
Mr. deLacy and Ben Baldwin, and
well did they do there duty.
The affair was an invitational
one, being of an inpromptu nature,
Ms. Spalding having conceived
the idea but a few days prior to the
parade. She consulted Mr. Spald
ing who ordered his machinists
to turn , out twelve autos at once.
The autos finished, invitations
were issued, each being accompa
nied by one of these mineature
autos, and a request to decorate and
have it on hand at the Valley House
promptly at noon Thursday. Need
less to add that the invitations
were accepted Mr. and Mrs.
Spalding's hospitality being too
widely known to surmise any other
At 12:30 the autos lined up (on
the dining table) while the guests
were invited to pass in review and
the judges asked to decide the
winners. This over, the next on
the program - was awarding prizes
and banners. The latter bore the
inscription: "Valley House Floral
Parade, Feb. 22nd. 1912, first
prize" ect. Following this, t h e
guests seated themselves to a tooth
some luau which was the closing
scene on the first floral parade ever
held on Kauai.
Among those present were Mr.
and Mrs. Ben Baldwin and sons,
Miss Woodman, Mr. and Mrs.

Net Profit Amounts to Nearly
Half Million Dollars For
One of Second Best Written
Storries in Washington
Acting Manager Hansen of the
Kekaha Sugar Co. at the annual
meeting of the Company which
was held in Honolulu last week,
reported the production of fifteen
thousand tons of sugar within
the past season, being the heaviest
of any previous year and an in
crease of more than a thousand
tons over the estimated output.
The acreage Irom which this
banner crop was taken amounted to
a little more than two thousand, a
slight increase over the 1910 crop.
The 1912 crop estimated at 13500
is in course of production, more
than one third of which has been
ground. The amount produced so
far shows a yield of 6.84 tons per
acre, with a probability that the
1913 crop will equal that of 1912.
The loss of irrigating water
through seepage which has received
much attention by the manage
ment, will be remedied by concre
ting the .worst places as soon as
weather will permit.
A net profit tor the past year
amounted to S459.7lO.23, of which
amount S390.000 or 45 per cent on
the capitalization, was paid in
dividends. The total assets of the
company are given as $1,454,796.

George Washington was born on
February 22, 1732 near the Poto

several brothers and sisters. His
father own a plantation which had
animal, trees and flowers on it.
His mother had a fi-e young colt
which she loved xry much but
nobody could ridi- on it.
When Washington grew to be a
boy he was vl!;. fond of sports.
One morning Washington deter

to the meadow and, with the help
of some of his friends caught and
Then he sprang lightly on the
back of the animal. The frighten

his seat and in a little while the
colt fell down dead.
