And now Johnny Rockyfeller
is accused of causing the revolu

What has become of the motion

Rain within the last few days

The New York Police Gazette,
the recognized leader of sporting

Little drops of water

The growing sentiment in favor

Those who are advocating a
Chamber of Commerce for Lihue
should get down to concrete facts.
All that is required is the first step.
After that, everything will be easy

The Garden Island leads
others follow. Until last year a
George Washington composition
story was unheard of. This year
however, Honolulu comes through
with an exact duplicate of our con
test. Moral: For new ideas be a
reader of The Garden Island.
The Kau.-nl'ort of Entry ques
tion is rapidly resolving itself into
a "Mnhukusite" proposition, each
side producing an argument in fa
vor of its particular locality. The
Delcgatetakesa noncommittal stand
in the situation, evidently realizing
the fact that he has gained publici
ty enough as it stands.
What he docs say, however, is
something to which every Kauaiau
should hearken, viz: "That no mat
ter where the port is finally situat
ed, I want a port on Kauai." Kau
aians should remember that after
all, this is the real object, and
throw aside this eternal bickering
which lias marked Honolulu as an
object of ridicule from Washington
Our Hanalei citizens are perfect
ly right in their request far dock
railway shipping facilities Ne
glecting to include such in Unori
ginal plan of the wharf is only an
other instance wherein the B i g
Chief in the Department of Public
Works displayed his incompetency.
"Why does such an important
island as Kauai have no Express
Office?" asks a subscriber. We'll
be-diug-bustcd if we can say, un
less its for the want of interest on
the part of the express companies.
It certainly cannot be clue to Kau
ai, for it is an established fact that
she gets about anything she goes
The fact that a Chinese, a Por
tuguese and a Japanese were win
ners of the three Garden Island
composition prizes last week, indi
cates a rather encouraging future
citizen outlook. Such familiarity
with the details of the lives of
men like Washington, f o r m s a
foundation for Americanism which
is difficult to over-estimate. May
the good work continue.
Kauai has put one over all is
lands outside of Oahu this year by
having its -own floral parade. The
Kealia parade was necessarily on a
small scale, figuratively speaking,
yet, undoudtedly equally as sue
The Evening Bulletin in a re
cent issue informs i t s readers
through i t s social section that
"the engagement o f Miss Neu

of California who is a rising young
civil engineer," Wonder how
George felt when it was announced
"to" him, miles away.
The same paper in speaking of
a certain nuptialistic event des
cribes the bride thusly: "The
bride was a picture in a pale-blue
silk, heavily embroidered in a con
ventional design." Let is hope
tnat she was a life size, life-like
Mrs. J. B. Martin, a New York
plutocrat's wife, has hired a French
chef to cook exclusively for Mrs.
Martin's Pomeranian dog, Bobby.
A dispatch from San Francisco
says that Mrs. Templeton Brocker's
original ball, recently given there,
in which the women appeared in
pantaloons of lurid colors,' was
a great success. The hostess wore
mauve pantaloons, and a pearl and
saphire coronet flashed from her
At a dinner given by Mrs. An

table was set in a "vista" of im

of lions, tigers, giraffes and ele

abounded. T h e cruests annerf
