Judge Jacob Hardy, whose first
, appointment is dated January 6th.
1854, and w h o has served a s
Kauai's Circuit Judge for thirty
four years consecutively, has ten
dCAjd his resignation to the presi

Hardy has established a Territorial
record both as to the highly satis
factory administration of justice
and to the greatest number of years
on the bench. Indeed it is very doubt
ful if his record can be touched in
the history of the United States.

Mr. and Mrs, H. D Wishard
entertained at an informal dance at
their beautiful home last Saturday
evening in honor of Miss Winstead,
Mrs. Wishard's sister, a charming
young lady whose home is in L"S
Angeles, but who will be the guest
of Mrs. Wishard for severalmonths.
The decorations were superb in
every detail. The spacious lanai
was a bower of ferns while the pink
color scheme was effectively carried
to a climax in the main reception
room where a profusion of pink
carnations greeted t h e eye. A
second reception room, appeared
gta bower of daisies which were
a&stically banked and intertwined
with dainty asparagus fern, which
formed an extremely pleasing com
bination. The large dining room
had bean tastefully decorated, the
color scheme here being yellow and

COL FRENCH IS DELIGHTED WITH KAUA
Col. Geo. French returned to
Honolulu on last Tuesday after
finishing what he states was the
most successful series of meetings
ever held by him on Kauai. Ar
riving on Friday's boat, accom-
.-nied by Major vviuis oi uu
Wlu, they climbed on the mail
' stage for Waimea and held meet
ings there in the Hawaiian Church.
On Sunday morning the Colonel
spoke first to the Hawaiian Sun
day School in Lihud, then to a
union meeting in the L,ihue Foreign
Church, his remarks at both ser
vices being of great interest to the
congregations. Saturday evening,
Sunday afternoon and night, ser
vices were held in Koloa, the Hall
there being filled to its uttermost
capacity. The closing meeting
Monday was a musicale, in which
Dr. and Mrs. Waterhouse, Mrs.
Henry Blake, and tlie Koloa uurcn
choir ably led by Judge Kapahee
and a Filipino orchestra took part.
The Colonel then gave a report of
the Army's work in the Territory
during which he stated that the
work had advanced on all lines
since his last visit, and read the

It is not often that I travel, not
even as far as Honolulu and so I
am not very familiar with the ways
of the Inter Island steamers.
But when I do spend a night on
one of them certain simple ques

That the state rooms are small,
uncomfortable and badly ventilated
may be one of the inevitable condi
tions of sea faring.
Freight carrying space is too va
luable to waste on passengers; but
why is it that only 3 small hooks
are allowed to one of these rooms
accomodating two or even three
passengers? When the unfortu
nate inmate gets ready to retire
he finds that he has a difficult pro
blem on his hands to dispose of
his apparel for the night. Hat,
coat, vest, collar, cuffs, shirt,
trousers, etc., must all find a place
on that one hook and a half, so as
to leave a fair division of the space
for his room mate.
Naturally the hook and a half
is over worked and more or less of
the clothing assortment falls onto
the floor, and more or less of it is
trodden under foot of men.
I suppose it simmers clown to
a question of dividends. You
can't have dividends and hooks too,
and the ordinary man prefers to
take his in dividends. Count me
as a crank if you will, but why
not take a very thin shaving off a
dividend and put it into hooks in
the cabins, wheieon the tidy pas

'No water for drinking pur
poses, bathing o r fighting fire,
making poi or for any other of the
thousand and one things, for days
at a time, with the superintendent
p mauka doing carpentering,"
was the way one prominent busi-
ess man described the water situa
tion in speaking to a reporter one
ay last week. We Waimea peo
ple" he continued," pay our water
rates, but much of the time not a
rop of water can we get. It has
reached the point where something
must be done. We get no assist
ance from the superintendent, who
replies to our request for better
ervice by saying that the planta
tions cut us off. The plantations
when seen say that all Mr. lone,
has to do is notify them when the
water is cut off and they will at
once order it turned on again from
the niauka ditch. So there you
are. We are tired of the humbug
and won't stand it any longer."
Numerous inquiries were made
for the purpose of substantiating
the above assertion and we them re
gret to say that in every instance
e learned that the speaker had
oiced the sentiment of the entire
community. If the present sup
ply of water depends entirely on
the generousity of the plantations,
it can naturally be seen since the
continued drowth in that section,
why they are so particular about
letting go what little they have
n storage. It would probably be
ery expensive to go in for a
private water source for Waimea,
but under the circumstances it
would appear to be about the only
course to pursue. The Board of
supervisors will probably take the
matter up at their next meeting
and in some way, bring about
relief. People must have water
and that the matter will receive

HANALEI'S BEAUTIFUL CHURCH EDIFICE
In Waioli, the beauty spot of
the Garden Island, a few yards to
the left of the old building, a lit
tle church is receiving its finish
ing touches. The building of this
structure has been the center of
attraction in the coininuuity ever
since the Christmas holidays; and
last week while Mr. Haynes, the
carpenter, was putting in the win
dows, every passer-by was drawn
by an irresistable impulse to halt,
and linger in admiration of this
exquisite creation of art and skill.
I he building is modern and up
to date, the style of architecture
being Gothic with a Roman Doric.
The main front, which is a gable,
is largely filled with an immense
stained glass window with a point
ed arch. To the right is the
belfry, below which are two en-J
trances, one in front and one at
the side, above each being a
Gothic arcji of stained glass. To
the left of the main front, and a
few feet back, is another front en
trance like the one just mentioned,
but smaller; and in the rear, at
the right, is an entrance consist
ing of a single door. Easy cement
steps, which the most aged can
ascend without fatigue, lead up to

FEET OF STAVE
A wood Stave pipe 7 ft. in
diameter and 1000 ft. long is be
ing constructed in ths mountain
back of McBryde as a lining for
the so called"Farley" tunnel. This
tunnel which leads the water out
of the Wahiawa Stream to the
Reservoir system, has been caving
in and washing out for years and
this pipe is to remedy this evil.
One of the serious problems involv
ed has been back filling the great
voids around the pipe where the
material had been washed out. The
work is in the competent hands of
J. L. Robertson.

It was a happy inspiration of the
President which transferred the
Special Meeting of the Mokihana

principal parts being taken by Mrs.

Lydgate, Miss Kaui Wilcox and
Miss Lulu Weber. Following the
reading delicious refreshments
were served. It is said that a very

hue in the color scheme is a rich
walnut brown, the doors, ap
parently o f real walnut, being
somewhat darker; while the same
color several shades lighter, serves
for the trimmings. The walls from
the windows down, and inclosing
the foundation, are dark-brown,
reflecting a faint suggestion of
purple. Shallow niches i n the
belfry above the portals, are done
in a dull cherry, harmonizing nice
ly with the surrounding color;
and the neatly shingled roof is
finished in a dainty slate color.
The windows, all of stained
glass, with Gothic arches, are
works of art upon which the eyes
ever delight to feast. As viewed
from the outside, they present a
beautiful sight, reflecting the va
rious shades of green and blue and
brown, blending pleasingly with
each other; but as seen from the
interior, with their background of
light from the outside, they are
simply gorgeous, reflecting all the
colors of the rainbow intensified.
This beautiful structure is the
gift of Mr. A. S. Wilcox to the
Hawaiian church of Hanalei. Mr.
Wilcox has taken especial interest
in the building of it, and has given
it a good deal of personal super
vision from first. Long may he
live to continue to bless humanity
with the wealth of which God has
made him the steward!
