mittees on the following subjects:
Finance Transportation, D o r in i -tory,
Commissariat, Music Recrea

Mr. J. M. Kaneakua in collating
the reports of the churches very
. forcibly called attention to many
discrepancies and defects indica
ting that these reports were not
made up with the careful atten

fore they were not as valuable as
they should be.
Mr. Oleson, Secretary of the
Hawaiian Board explained t h e

The July Convention In Lihue
The meeting of the general as
sociation of the Congregational
churches of the Territory, -July 10
at Lihue, will be an event of much
more than usual importance to
this island. The convention will
be by all means the largest '' ever
held on this island and probably
the largest ever held in the Ter
ritory. Over one hundred chur
ches will be represented by dele
gates which will probablv aggre
gate 600 persons. This great bo
dy wilJ include half a dozen races
and languages, and will be made
up, on the whule,-ok the flower of
the communities from which they
come. This will be.especially true
of the Hawaiians who will form
the great majority of the body.
This great Association will be
the guest, not alone of Lihue, but
of the whole island of Kauai, and
it will doubtless be a matter of
island pride and island unitv t o
stand together in dispensing liberal
hospitality. This is not a matter
of class or section of church or
creed. It is a matter of the broad
interests which make for well-Ue-
ing and harmony; it is a matter of
the good name of Kauai. It is to be
hoped that none will stand aside and
say lhat is no affair of mine!
but that we may all do our share
to insure the success of the aftair.

WAIMEA SCHOOL SURPRISED
The gift of a fine new Victor
phouogrr.ph from Hon. Francis
Gay, was a delightful surprise to
the cmldren oi this school, and a
joy to all the teachers. Marching
is a delight, gymnastics move
smoothly to its strains, and Folk
Dances and other delights become
possible through its use. Plans
for National Folk Dances, bv which
the traditions and memoirs of the
parents from other countries are
recognized and preserved, will
now materialize and will help to
cement the bonds of friendship be
tween the nationalities here.
Two cords of wood have been
cut by the boys, the proceeds of
which will go towards the records
needed. Many children, too, are
looking for chances to earn five
cents each so that different grades
may buy records for their own uses

With Big Dance, Saturday,
The second entertainment of the
Neighborhood Club was a neigh
borhood dance, given by Mr. and
Mrs. E. W. Broadbent on Satur
day evening and enthusiastically
enjoyed by the members of the club
and a few specially invited guests.
Iheir commodious house lent
itself most comfortably to the de
mands of the evening. Two fine
rooms swept and garnished und
polished for dancing, a quiet lauai
room for the devotees of cards,
and a large verandah for the men
who preferred a quiet cigar to any
more exciting recreation, and a
novel and most attractive, cozy re
treat, was the stairway where the
conditions were favorable to remi
niscence and the recall of gallan
tries and tendernesses of other stair
ways and other days.
1 he music was furnished by the
Grove Farm orchestra and was the
kind that when you hear it, you
must be up and doing. The re
freshments were most varied and
lveVyone had a'thoroughly good
time in an unconstrained way, and
one yonnglady when she got home
discovered that she had danced
two holes i n her stockings' and
two blisters on her heels.

entertainers were Mr. and Mrs. De

A subscriber writes asking onr

"blind pig" is a place where liquor
is unlawfully sold, which naturally

FRUIT FLY RAVISHING KAUAI
Many arguments both pro and
con have been heard as to whether
or not the Mediterranean fly really
exists on Kauai. To settle the
question once for all, we will say
that it not only exists but does so
to such an extent that it spreads
over a territory (in so far as we
personally know) from Waimea to
Ilanatnaulu. Much has been done
locally to prevent further spread,
but so far, there has come but little
if any aid from Territorial sources.
