J.'K. Gandall "Honest John"
Answers Last Roll Call
Saturday
Mr. J. K. Gandall,
n-icn i n a precarious
lor some weeks, passed
who had
condition
away on
Saturday morning and was buried
on Sunday afternoon from the
Union Cjburch, which was most
beautifvly decorated- for the
occasion. The services 'were con
ducted by Rev. J. M. Lydgate,
and were most fitting a n d im-pre-sive.-
The music was rendered
by "the Hawaiian church choir,
strikingly 'appropriate -ivl har
monious. Mr. J. K. ..Gandall was one of
the honored landmarks of a time
gone by, whose importance we of
this later generation do not fully
appreciate perhaps.
A carpenter by trade, he served
the Lihue plantation in that capa
city for many years, and there
gained that intimate knowledge of
the 'sugar business, which fitted
him ultimately for the position of
head 1 u n a on the Hanamaulu
plantation, under Mr. A. S. Wil
cox. This responsible position he
held until the amalgamation of
this plantation with Lihue.
During the period of political
unrest and upheaval, when it was
exceedingly important t o have
good .m.e n in Legislature, and
when too, it was difficult to elect
good men, he was prevailed upon
to run for the Senate, was elected
byatorge majority, and served in
thauc-ipacity for several years,
V proving an excellent and valuable
man because of the general res
pect which he conynanded for in
tegrity, temper, and judgment
, and because of his skill in hand
ling the large Hawaiian contingent.
As a political speaker appealing
to the Hawaiian vote, he has per
haps had no equal, certainly no
superior, in modern times. His
use of the simple, graphic, homely
Hawaiian of the older time, is said
to have been a revelation of the
power of the language.. It is an
art of which he was one of the
last, as well as most giiteu mas
ters.
Personally he was a man of
many rare and admirable qualities.

courteous he commended himself
to all who met mm. A simple,
honest,
t, 'large hearted man, He
man, h e
carried his character in his face so
that you felt that you wanted to
know him from the. first moment
'that you saw him. And those

sincere in. their respect for him.
By a Friend
J. K. Gandall, better known as
"Honest jolm," and one of the
? most highly respected citizens of
Kauai, -died at his home in Lihue
i iustSaturday morning at eleven

kidney'trouble. Funeral services

and' the Lihue church, the former
" taking place at half past two and
the latter at three p. m., iuter
"ment taking place in the Lihue
cemetery.
Mr. Gandall was considered one
of the best Hawaiian orators in
the Territory, having until but
p recent years been known as one
of the chief political live wires of
the community. He served as re
" presentative fpr,one term, and was

term from 1905-1907, distinguish

Escapes by Knocking Assailant
Down and Making a
Get-a-way
An attempted hold-up occurred
on the public road near Hanamaulu
about six o'clock Sunday evening,
and but for the suppleness of the
would-be-victim the attempt might
have proven successful. Yama
guchi, a laborer on the Hanamau
lu Plantation had been to Wailua
-for the purpose of collectiiiK some
money, and as he approached the
ironwood trees on his rcturji. he
was attacked by two Filipinos with
whom he grappled and succeeding
in knocking one of the,, assailants
down, he managed' to extricate
himself from the other. after which
jhe escaped by juiming. On reach
ing the camp Yamaguchi reported
the matter to his friends who up
on returning to the place-- of en
counter, could find no trace of the
Filipinos. ,
Some of these days these loafers
will shout at the wrong "girl, peep
into the wrong window or attempt
a hold-up on the" wrong persoy.
Morgan Thornton
The Hanamaulu school cottage
was the setting for a quiet wedding
at 5 o'clock last night whe'n Miss
Jessie A. Thornton a u d Harold
Morgan were united in marriage,
Rev. J. M. Lydgate officiating. It
was a private affair, only a few of
the most' intimate friends of the
couple being present. The bride
is a native of Ohio, and a recent
arrival in the islands,, having been
on the Hanamaulu teaching staff
since September, while the groom
is our popular County treasurer
and assistant cashier, of the Lihue
Bank. Following the ceremony a
bridal cake was cut and light re
freshments served. Mr. and Mrs.
Morgan will make their home
temporarily at the Hotel Fairview
Tin; Garden Island joins thsir
many friends in best wishes for a
happy and prosperous future.
Kauai Gets Theaters

various islands, has completed ne
gotiations for play houses in every
plantation from Kckaha to Lihue,
uid to a reporter, Mr. Iernandes
stated that negotiations pointing
to satisfactory arrangements for a
theater in Lihue were well under
way, and that as soon as it were
possible, he would have buildings
in Kcalia and Kilauea. Once the
circuit is started, it is his intention
to secure some of the good show
talent which comes to Honolulu for
his theaters.
We understand that Mr. Fcrnan
des is receiving geneious support
from the various plantations, who
are said to be putting up his build
ings. The public has been stung
about as often as it can stand, and
Mr. Fernande's coming is hailed
with delight. Thk Gakdhn Is

Light On The Subject
A plan is foot which seems to
have met general opproval, is one
which will give the community a
lighting system second to none in
the Territory. Supervisor Wishard
is quoted as hvoring the scheme
from the county's point of view
in case the expense will not
amount to more than one hundred
dollars per month. The scheme
would provide wires from Hana
maulu to Nawiljwili, with lamps
at intervals which will light the
road from end to end. The idea
is a bright one and it is to be hoped
will materialize.

Koloa Sugar Direct t o The
Coast By Big Hawaiian
Freighter
The Kauai Railway Co., has
received by the Alaskan, ten big
regulation freight cars of the box
car type which will be placed on
the run from Koloa and McBryde.
Heretofore the sucrar has been
conveyed in open cars which
while a trifle more convenient for
speedy handling, was n o t so
satisfactory otherwise. The rail
road nas been placed under the
interstate commerce law and there
fore must conform with the re
quirements, hence the additional
stock of modern carriers. . '
The cars were bought from
Orenstein Arthur Kappel Co.
Pittsburg, Kappel, Pa., which is
one of the largest railway equip
ment plants i n the States. H.
Hackfeld & Co., Honolulu, aro
the general agents through which
the sale was made, while the popu
lar local representative Fred F.
Lacks engineered the sale. The
company is a 1 s p adding two
modem Baldwin locomotives t o
its rolling stock.
Koloa Ships Direct
Arrangements have bean per
fected between H. Hackfeld & Co.,
and Alexander & Baldwin, agents
for the McBryde Sugar Company,
whereby the output of the Koloa
plantation, adjoining the McBryde
plantation on Kauai, will be
handled by the American-Hawaiian
Steamship line, the sugar being
loaded on the ocean going wcssels
at Port Allen.
The Koloa is a 7,500 ton planta
tion, and its sugar heretofore has
been handled by the Inter-Island
vessels, bringing t h e cargo to
Honolulu, where it was re-shipped
on the larger vessels bound for the
Pacific or Atlantic coasts. Under
the new arrangement the sugar
will be transferred direct by rail
from the plantation mill to Port
Allen, loaded on the big ships and
sent direct to the mainland, thus
efTecting a large saving for the
producers.
Popular Girl Returns
Miss Agnes O'Connell, sister of
Mrs. A. D. Hills, and an accom
plished San Francisco teacher who
hasbeenspending an extended leave
of absence as Mrs. Hill's house--guest,
left for Honolulu last week,
from whence she sailed for her
home in San Francisco. While,
here, Miss O'ConncH's pleasing
personality won her hosts of
friends who regretted her de
parture. Miss O'Connell was the
motif of a number of delightful
social functions and like every
body else who comes to Kauai,
was enthusiastic over the beauti
ful island and its hospitable
people. She was accompanied to
Honolulu by Miss Mary Erhorn,
who had been the guest of the
Hills for the past three weeks and
Mr. Hills.
Main Street Macadam
Engineer Moragne with his
gang of expert road builders arriv
ed from Wailua yesterday after
noon and for the next two or three
weeks, will be engaged in re-ma
cadamizing the Main Street. The
recent donation by the Lihue
Plantation to the County, of a ten
foot strip o f land fronting the
new town site lots has added
sufficient width to make Main
Street one of the most desireable
driveways in the Territory.
Fire In Koloa
Last Friday night about ten
o'clock, fire was discovered in a Ko
loa cane field, which fortunately
w a s extinguished before much
damage was done, about an acre
of cane in all being destroyed.
