.There is a damage case pending
in our local courts, wherein a

to recover dnmages from an official

A New Specie of Dog
Mrs. Harold Morgan, wife of
oiu- efficient county treasurer, re
ceived by Friday's Hall a French
poodle -the first of this variety of
dogs ever brought to the Terri
tory. It has been confined in the
.animal quarentine station in Ho
'nolulu since September, during
which time dog fanciers in Hono
lulu have greatly admired the lit
tle fellow. The dog is about two-by-twice,
a n d is probably the
snialfcst known' bleed except the
famous Japanese pug-poodle. It
has a coat off long, curly hair,
vhie as,.the driven snow, and
-'curled upon a sofa cushion (where

Increase In Moonshine
'Moonshing" according to the
annual report of the commissioner
o t internal revenue, continues
without the least sign of abate
ment. During the fiscal year
1912, 5465 illicit distilling plants
were seized, about the same num
ber as in the previous year, and
the report carries with it an ad
mission that the government did
not catch all violators of the law.
The report gives 298,352 as the
number of distillers in operation
with a capitalization amounting to
$60,607,138,925, and an aggregate
income of $3,213,707,247. Capital
stock increased over 1910 by more
than $?, 180,708,000.

BLOWN TO PIECES .
Y GIANT POWDER
While under the influence of
.liquor u n a r 1 l e t,ong, a resi
dent of Wainiha and an employee
of the Wainiha Power Co.. was
htterally blown t o pieces early
New Year's morning while a t -templing
to celebrate the birth of
the New Year with a box- of giant
powder which he had secured from
the power house store room. Hs
had been requested to remain away
from the powder house, when it
was learned of his intentions. It
seems that one stick h a d been
discharged, but evidently the un
fortunate celebrater thought this
too tame, and accordingly brought
forth an entire keg of the explosive
and with the aid of firecrackers,
set a greater part of it off with the
result that some of his limbs and
head, were almost Severed from
the body. Lacerated as h e was,
however, he lived for a short while
after the accident. '
Happiness reigned supreme at
the delightful New Year's Eve
party given b y Rev. and Mrs.
Hans Isenberg to the Lihue
children at their beautiful home.
Many of tlie children were mem
bers in an orignally composed
play by Rev. J. M. Lydgate,
which fact alone vouches for its
success, l n e numerous, witty
hits o n local firms brought forth
roars of applause. Light refresh
ments consisting of ice-cream and
cake were served during the
evening which was relished by the
grown-ups as well as the juvenile
guests, The number o f invited
guests numbered nearly a hundred.

NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS
The annual luaus to skilled plan
tation labor given by Mr. and
Mrs. Weber of the Lihue Planta
tion, have become a social event
looked fprward to with happy an
ticipation. And so might it be,
since each year's reception excels
the previous one. The luau given
by this popular couple, assisted
by their charming daughter, Miss
Lulu, last Tuesday evening was
one of the most brilliant affair of
the season. The tables were ar
ranged in the vard 'neath the
spreading branches of statily
monkey pod trees, hud appeared
in a sort of semicircle. The de
corations in a major part were
green, being artistically inter
spersed with blending color
schemes. D.irectly over the center
of the enclosure formed by the
table arrangement, a" semicircle of
various colored electric light bulbs
..sent forth their shining splendor,
spelling the word "aloha." The
tables' fairly groaned with luau
delicacies, while a stringed or
chestra ensconced on the big lanai
rendered sweet melodies during
the dinner hour, at the conclusion
of which decks were cleared for
the terpsichoreau artists. Tho'se
enjoying the h spitality of Mr.
and Mrs. Weber were: Mr. and
Mrs. Rohrig, Mr. and Mrs. An
dermann, Mr. and Mrs. Christian,
Messrs. Carls Crawford, H. D.

Plaze In Kapaa
Kai'AA, Jan. 1st. About mid
night last Monday fire was dis
covered in a kitchen in the rear
of the main residence of'a Japanese
residing on main street b"t the
discovery was made too late to
save the building. According to
reports, the owner was in the
habit of retiring and leaving a
lighted lamp in the kitchen, and
that the fire must have originated
in the lamp being overturned. The
prompt and combined efforts of the
neighbors prevented the spread of
fire, which-, had there been a wind
blowing, might have laid the en
tire town in ashes. The house
was the property of Miura.

FOLL OF FUN
One o f the hottest contested
bowling games ever pulled off in
the history of our local bowling
alley was that of last Wednesday
afternoon when a large number of
the members gathered to enter the
free-for-all contest for ten prizes
It was a battle royal from start
to finish and when the smoke of
battle had been wafted away on
the New Year's breeze C. Maser (as
usual) stood at the head of the win
ning list. Then followed Winters,
Wolters, Hills, Hopper, Malm,
Anderniann, Rohrig, Grote, J r.
and Carls The highest score by
winners was 182 by Maser and the
lowest, 135, by Carls.
The first prize was a silver bread
tray, captured by Maser, who will
now be able to serve as a waiter by
a little more practice. The second
prize a lanai rocker, was annexed
by Winters who has agreed to rock
himself to sleep in it as long as
zero weather continues. The third
prize, a tabacco jar, was lassoed by
Wolters who has agreed to let any
one smoke out of it who will fur
nish the tobacco. The fourth prize
a leather collar box, was collared
by Hills, who declares it just the
thing i n which to preserve his
paper collars. The fifth prize, a
dozen doilies, was the portion of
Hopper, who it is reported took
them home and was later forced
to give them to his wife. The
sixth prjze, a koa ash tray, be
came the property of Mr. Malm,
who will probably learn to smoke
so he can use it. The seventh prize,
a beer stein, surrendered itself to
Mr. Andermann, who from the
very outset in the game had de
signs upon it. He was considered
a very lucky man. The eighth prize,
a candalebra, was knocked down
to our popular merchant, Mr. Roh
rig, who declared for a little light
on the subject when so closely
beaten in the race for the stein.
The ninth prize, a pair of suspen
ders and a pair of Boston garters,
were stretched out to our esteemed
bowler, Grote, Jr. who'll make an
afidavit that they are sure enough
suspenders, since they were pulled
too short, thus allowing them to
suspend about three inches above
the waistband of his trousers. The
tenth and last prize, a thermos
bottle, was presented to Mr. Carls,
who is to be congratulated on hav
ing attained the means of having a
receptacle in which he can keep
"hot stuff" hot and "cold stuff"
cold. Thus each winner of a prize
was handsomely rewarded for his
efforts and the less fortunate rivals
got as much pleasure out of the
contest as if they all had leceived
SCHOOL BOYS i
ON A JAONn
One of our contemporaries calls
attention to the great need and the
large field there is in the com
munity which it represents for a
handy man who will make regular
house to house tours through the
community to fix the hundred and
one little things which go wrong in
every house. Such a gifted and
useful man we are sure would be
more welcome in Lihue than even
Santa Claus himself. Someone who
could oil the doors and windows
that squeak, fix the hooks that
don't work, ease up the doors that
stick, renew the broken pane o f
glass, glue in the loose chair rungs,
the man who could meet these
t i m e 1 y requirements would
minister to the peace and happi
ness of the community, and for
that matter to the advent of the
kingdom of God, by means of the
strong language he would pre
vent. Here's to the advent of the

Twelve boys and girls from
the Hanamaulu school chartered a
truck on Saturday and loading up
a tenting outfit went to HanalSi
where the boys pitched camp and
remained over night.. Early on
Sunday morning, they sought the
finny tribe with rod and hook
and succeeded in filling two large
water buckets full of little re'd
weoweos before breakfast time. In
the. afternoon they succeed in
getting up a practice ball game
with the Hanalei boys, whq kindly
loaned theni two players in order
to fill up' the team. The Hana-"

to the advantage the other team
had as.', to size. It was a Kood
game, However, and was witnessed
by quitea browd of local admires
of the profession. The happy,
tho somewhat tired youngsters
reached Hanamaulu on their return
about seveii o'clock. The party
was composed of Isami, Masau.

Hanalei Roads First
It is to be sincerely lfdoed that
when the 1913 roadwork begins,
the Hanalei district may not be
forgotten. A start should be made
at Kilauea the work extending in
both directions towards Lihue as
far, at least, as Pilaa, and the
road completed into Hanalei. It
is not an uncommon thing to see
from two to a dozen autos pass
over this almost impassable stretch
of chuck holes, daily, and the
completion of this much of the
Hanalei road, seems to be the
greatest desire of that part of the
public whose business and pleas-,
tire necessitates a trip to Hanalei.
Lent Late This- Year .
Lent this year will cover one
of the shortest perjods on record. 1
Social activities must be suspend
ed only for a few weeks, for the,
season starts on February 12, and
Easter will fall on March 23,, one
day latei than the earliest possible
date upon which Easter may fall,
that being March 21st. Lent begins
earliest this year than since 1818.
The custom 'established, by the
chuiches decrees that, Easter shall
fall on the first Sunday following
the first full moon after March'
21st. "Easter," a church official
said, "and with it of course, the
ending of Lent, is a movable least
and is fixed by the ideal moon,
adopted by the churches hundreds
of years ago, when they, were at
tempting to settleiip'on a fixed
date for Easter."
