Ratv did, she didn't, would
ahout describe the hide-and-go-seek
method which is being employed in
handling the Nawiliwili Harbor
proposition in Washington.
It might not be a bad idea for
the county fathers to do up that
Koloa hill grade and present it to
retiring Engineer J. B. Keigutley
that he might take it to China with
him as a sort of testimony of
his ability (?) in running grades.
Thk Garden Island is indebt
ed to Mrs. Hundley for the pre
sentations of a bunch of the finest
onions we have ever seen. Mrs.
Hundley grew them in her garden
and informed a reporter that she
had grown a large quantity of
Quite a piece of land has been

A good plan by which to settle
the "teachers' schedule" would be
for the teachers of each island
lo'tdect delegates to the May meet
ing of the Board of Supervising
principals, whose duty it would 1 e
lo assist in the formation of a suit
able schedule. A schedule 25
years old is to antiquated for our
It is estimated that 23 new school
rooms will be necessary to house
next year's enrollment. All who
have used the open air rooms have
had nothing but praise for them,
and as the expense of construction
is so small, it is not unlikely that
this style of architecture will be
Among the various laws which
go to make up the rules by which
we are kept out of jail, is one which
prohibits the ru?ning at large of
stock. For some time pa-t covs
have been annoying neighbor- in
the vicinitv of- the Lihue camp. Re
peated requests were made to the
owner-, of these cattle to k-.ep them
out of other peopLs' premie-. ! ut
these requests have apparently f li
en on unheeding ears. Oik iii.ni
has complained to the Garden Is
land that his entire crop of vege
tables had been destroyed by bov
ine invasions and stated that if fur
ther troubled, there would be some
thing doing in the pound master's
The appointing of a policeman
whose sole duty consists of running
in stray stock seems entirely su
perfluous. Does not the regular
police officer have the authority .
to do tins very same thing? If so'
then why can't he be made to see
his duty and do it. It strikes us
that the "cow officer's" job will
be a bully good one.
That diptheria cannot be
stamped out is not to be wondered
at when such laxity is shown bv
those left in charge of ouarentined
premises. From authentic sources
it is learned that persons are
allowed to come and go almost at
will; that a parent will beg to be
admitted just for a moment and
thai permission is usually granted;
that the big hearted guard can't
say no lo his pleadings. With such
conditions prevating it is not sur
prising to see the disease spread.
Editor Garden I.m.anj :
That Koloa hill grade is one of
the worst specimens of grade mak
ing I ever saw. I sincerely hope
that Mr. Moragne will be able to
return and have t h e grade re
arranged, before the macadam is
placed, for unless such is the case,
the present incunbent, who is res
ponsible for this grade and who
lias no interest in the future con
dition of our roads will continue
this piece of work in a manner to
his own liking and to the disatis
faction of the public.
The plum handed out to Harold
Morgan by the county fathers this
morning was certainly well meri

One hostess who lacked tact at
dinner placed a learned and some
what deaf college professor beside
a debutante. The girl found the
professor very unresponsive, but
finally she noticed a dish of fruit,
and in desperation asked if he liked
After being asked several times
to repreat the question her voice
being raised each time, attracting
the attention of the whole table,
she was horrified when the learned
man riveted her with a disapprov

ctly: "My dear young woman, I had
hoped that I had misunderstood
your question: but, since you per

Mr. Marmiu. the contractor for
the Hanapepe school with his gang
of men has arrived and dirt has
been flving for the lust few daws.
He will commence the concrete
piers this week. He has ordered
all his lumber, iron roofing, doors
and windows from Seattle. This
material will arrive soon on one
of the American-Hawaiian steam
ers. He runs a camping and board
ing outfit right on the ground.
Why not fix up the short cut
road and put it in passable shape?
Nothing has been done on it for
three vears, and it is in a wretched
There is much wagon travel on
i t as the road shows, probably
more than on the main road since
all the through Eleele-Lihue travel
takes the cut off.
Since the main road has been put
in good shape for autos this road
has been neglected for wagon travel.
Mr. Gay has looked over the
new Hnnopepe School grounds to
see what is needed to put things
in shape for September. Mr. Mc
Hryde lias done the same.
This is local government and
beats the old umhope Territorial
form by a mile.
