Something like two
weeks ugo, tliir office
was inforinod that all the
on the public school buildings un
der construction, were orientals-
not citizens. A n investigation
proved the assertion to be a mis
take, and in so far as- this paper is
concerned, the matter was dropped.
However, a well founded report
is now in circulation to the effect
that the man responsible for the
charge agauist the county, was
and is. no other than a Link Mc-
rnmllps stool-nieeon. It will be
remembered by nearly all of us
and by Link more particularly
that in the last campaign, his per

teams of the
1st. and 2nd. series which pulled
off their first tie game on the Mc
Bryde diamond last Sunday were
greeted by a bumper crowd that
had gathered with the expectation
of seeing these two bunches of big
slabbers contest for the 1912
championship. Nor was the crowd
disappointed for the game through
out, was all that could be desired
to make it an interesting game
save, however, the fact that the
.visitors were dangerously close to
the vicinity of the whitewash pail
when the McBrydes, in the 9th.,
annexed two runs. A s it now
stands, the Kilaueas have the ad
vantace, since their opponents
must necessarily win both of the
remaining, games to entitle them
to the coveted prize. This, they
surely will strain every effort to
accomplish and though the Ki
laueas are known to be among the
leading big stickers, this fact will
not have any effect on the am
bition of the McBryde's t o do
their best, and it will not pay the
Kilaueaites to do other than their
best regardless of the fact that
they have a leg on the champion
ship. May the best team win.

to look after the school repairs ot

with our buildings that we have

nothinc has been done. Had the
county carried out the proposition
sutrircsted bv this paper last vear.
everything would have been in
tin-top shape for the fall term of
1912. There is sufficient repair
work to keep a carpenter constant

it doesn't seem unreasonable to
propose that a county carpenter be

sands of desks arriving, the local
department of education presents
a scene of activity which betokens
the progressive spirit of the Kauai-
ans. New teachers are appearing
on the horizon, and the former
ones are beginning to reassemble
their belongings preparatory t o
their coming year's work. A
transfer here, a change there, etc.,
have caused some little delay in
the final assignment of teachers,
but this has about all been arranged
to the satisfaction of all and when

as Attorney Kaneakua
savs, the Hoard ot supervisors is
the only power behind the throne,
then why does it not amno
rize the enforcement of this law at
once? Does the Board imagine the
people can be hoodwinked into
inactivity? Take the Kawaihau
district, for instance. Why, .every
tree which has been planted, has
been eaten down. During the after
noon and evening the road is lined
with horses and cattle. This is,
however, no exception, for the
same can be said of the public
roads around Lihue and between
Lihue and Kealia.
It is very evident to the people
all over the island, that those re
