E. 13. Bridokwatuk, Editor
K. C. Hopi'Kr, , Manager
Kauai's Judge is coining, but
Tun Lihue Plantation has a
gang of men irrigating those Li
hue town lots.
Anyhow t h e Kauai C. E's
can sing, even .though they did fail
to capture the banner last night.
Say- .what you please but the
fact re'maius that the County's got
a drag on that county building
'Tijntino to-night" is' said "to
have been the evening hymn of a
large number of visiting delegates
to the convention.
That Kam. Glee Club perform
ance at. the Hall Saturday evening
was a musical treat which would
easily stand a repetition.
Amisuica won 7 first prizes in
the 100 meter dash at the Olympic
games, which is conclusive evi
dence of the dash characteristic of
the American athlete.
Thk bountiful rain which fell
last Saturday might not have beeir
too pleasing to baseball enthusiasts,
but certainly found an appreciative
bunch' of sugar growers.
Among- the delegates to the con
vention are representatives of three
news-papers, which indecates that
at least three of our craft are head
ed in the right direction, anyhow.
Whkn we can hustle up an ex
cursion crowd of five hundred
people right here in Lihue, it is
about time the promotors of that
belt railroad should get busy with
hammer and spike.
Eivk hundred intelligent people
in our midst, with never acarefor
the high cost - of living would
make a third party who adds this
plank to its plat form, look like
Thi; county Auditor's report
appearing i u this issue is one
which should Hot escape the at
tention of our readers, as it shows
a very satisfactory condition o f
our County's business.
With the additional christian
SDirit which the fliiirri r1i1 pun tr
brought to Kauai, to-gether with
that w h i c h already abounded
among our good people, ought to
get" some of us into telephonic
. touch with St. Peter's headquarters.
And now Barney Joy threatens
legal proceedings against a Maui
paper for saying nasty things about
him. As the paper could not have
referred to him without "joy," it is
difficult to see where the kick
,'It is to be hoped that a valuable
lesson has been taught those who
make a practise of practically sell
ing their daughters, in the self
'sacrifice of a young life rather
than ' submit tti an arrangement
wjiereby She might be bartered
for at her parents will.
Miss Warriner. representing
the Friend, succeeded in getting
some excellent views of the con
vention people, and as this clever
little writer is an artist in thia line
as well, we can naturally expect
some interesting views, pictorial
and otherwise, in the Friend when
it makes its next appearance.
Wis hasten to congratulate the
Hilo Herald on its up-to-dateness
in appearance under Editor Giles, j
The front page make-up which is
patterned after the front page of
Thk Garden Island, is especially 1
attractive. Keep it up, Gilesiej
old boy, just continue to com-1
methods, and your readers will
finally get an idea that you'r onto
' 'Hi'll tell you w'at's a fact,
this is the finest place I ever seen-.
The people are just as fine, too.
Thus spake Johnny Martin, dele
gate from Honolulu, representing
the niethodist church, as he pre
sented his card to the editor with
a threat of libel for slander, owing
to a recent article alluding t o

Editor Cowan of the popular
little Kohala Midget, raid who is
attending the convention as dele
gate from Hawaii was a welcome
visitor to our sanctum sanctorum
last Friday. Brother Cowan is in
the field for larger presses, having
decided to equip his office for an
enlargement of his paper. With
the popularity the Midget enjoys,
and the ability and determination
of Editor Cowan to turn cut
first-class paper, the success of the
new and bigger Midget is assured
May the Midget become a giant is
the wish of its Kauai contemporary
WaltKK D. McBrydi;, Member
of the Liquor Board, Secretary
Kauai Loan Fund Commission,
Member Board of Supervisors
Collector o f Ports, Laud Agent
and all around promotor of home
steading, and innumerable other
public benefactions, has fostered a
suggestion for more wholesale
liquor houses on Kauai. Thesug
gestion will no doubt meet with
considerable support, as the onlv
opposition to be expected will
come from Honolulu wholesalers
who furnish illicit dealers and such
dealers themselves. A further
suggestion by some that three more
licenses be granted and that they
be for Hanalei, Homestead and
Kekaha, while mere rumor, is by
no means beyond the pale of pos
sibilities. Take Hanalei for instance. Scar
cely a steamer arrives at the
ports of this district but brings a
cargo of booze; never a liquor
salesman making this island, but
pays his respects to this district.
Assuming this to be true, then,
is it not to be considered to the
best interests of the county t o
grant a license to some reliable
man who would be willing to pun
gle up $1,000 for the privelige of
conducting a legitimate business
in that district? Does the county
derive revenue from the wholesale
liquor traffic which is now going
on in the Hanalei district? Em
phatically, no' Then is it not a
little unusal to compel one man to
pay a thousand plunks to carry on
a business and not attempt to cor
ral those who are enjoying an
equal share" of business without
costing them a bean? The es
tablishment of three more liquor
houses would not, in the estima
tion of some who pretend to know,
increase the sales, but would sim
ply mean the legitimate sale of
the large traffic which is now go
ing on under a shroud of secrecy.
Holy Ghost At

Jas. Edwards, one of the brt
known mechanical men on the is
land, and for the last four and n
Jialf years, assistant engineer for
