THE- SUCK LAW
Editor Gardkn Island,
My attention has been called to
,your article "stock stfll runs at
will" in vour last issue. I herewith
wish to quote you the law on the
subject. Act 12 5 Session Laws
1907-Section 15. "On public roads
lauds, ff any animal shall trespass
Or stray upon any government
roads in and around the citv of
Honolulu, town and district o f
Hilo, Hawaii ..towns of Wailtiku
and Lahaina Maui., or upon any
government road HOUNDED ON
DOTH SIDES BY A LEGAL
FENCE, or upou'any government
'land, in this Territory, any police
constable or such person or persons
as in a y thereunto authorized 1 n
writing by the Hoard of Supervisors
or road authorities of the county,
are hereby authorized to take up
such animals audi to impound the
same in accordance with the pro
visions of this Act."
The government roads referred
to by you. namely that of Kawai
hau and Kalaheo are not bounded
on both sides by a legal fence.
Section 10 of the same Act defines
a legal fence. "Every fence shall
be 'deemed a lawful fence which
shall bj made of stone, pdsts and
rails,, posts and boards, posts and
iron wire, "or other suitable
materials, provided it be not less
than four and a half feet in height,
substantially built, strong a n d
close to turn all stock excepting
swine, and in good repair. The
sea, rivers, ponds, and natural
bluffs, whenever impassable, sliall
be .legal fence;." The Police De
partment of this County has no
legal right -to take up any trespass
ing or stray animal on a govern
ment road unless the said road is
legallv fenced o n both sides,
according to Law. The question
at issue was years ago submitted
to the Cbuutv Attorney, Ssby me,
and his verbal opinion was that my
dopartmeut'had no legal right to
make'the urtests of stray stock un
' less the road was properly fenced.
. In f.iirrfess to the Deputy Sheriff
fo( Kawnihau, I request that you
publish the above.
' Wm. Henry Rick,
' Sheriff, County of Kauai.
The stretch of road referred to
in the above article, (or at least
the' road referred to bv this paper)
extends from Mr.' Neifson's resi
dence to the Wailua school, and has
the race track fence on one side
and a stone fence on the other,
which for all generalK purposes
might be considered by most peo
ple to be a "legal fence."

Dear Editor Gardkn Island:
Permit us' to say a few words
and we thank you honorable editor
if you will print same in your good
We see time again remarks con
cerning 'loose animals on our pub
lic highways and a nuisance to
Autoist who travel the high ways.
Our common people's opinion is
this those who drive autos are men
and are supposed to have sense. If
these people would think a moment
,and not believe . they are sole
owners of the highway we think
the highways will be pleasant to
travel on. -f
Can't they ease up a bit and
save a little gas while approching
a duin senseless animal and give
them time to get out the road,
don't the owners of these sense'fess
animals pay their taxes which pay
for the highway and pay properly
tax besides and then they have " no
rights to tresspass the highway.
By Common People.
Thanks to ve editor.

A Punch of Carnations
A bunch o f Eleele musicians
whose .-prowess as such is too
favorably known to require intro

name of the "Carnation Quintette."
Just where or how the bojs came
to adopt this flowery name for their
club has not been fully explained
but it is sort of whispered that a
certain young lady whose favorite
flower is the carnation, was some
what instrumental in naming the
club. The members of the club
are John Gonsalves, Manuel Nunes
Autone Pcreira, Joe Leaudio,
Inenoo, with John Gonsalves as
the director. The Club has had

When asked what guarantee the

The proposition to furnish
Janitors whose duties wouid be to
care for our schools and grounds,
is, according toone parent, at least,
a step in the right direction. In
discussing the matter with a re
porter the parent said: "I contend
that to compel school children to
grovel around through germ-laden
grass tor the sake of picking paper,
etc., which in many cases con
tains spit filled with germs, is
equally as bad as puioiely ex
posing the child wherein a disease
is known to exist.
Children cough and spit as they
plav, unmindful of the fact that a
barefooted boy or girl who might
have a sore on the feet might easily
become contaminated through the
source of contact with the germs
thus deposited among the grass.
We are a t present waging war
agdnst the white plague, and in
my opinion a rule by the dtpart
m e n t of education prohibiting
children from "yard cleaning"
would be a great help to our
authorities who are engaged in this
battle for public health A much
better plan would be to see that
everychildwhothrows banana peels
etc., onthe grounds, picks it up at
once thus keeping the yard free
from rubbish and making the prei
sent loathsome habit only a thing
It only requires a full realization
of the dangers of the present ruling
upon the part of the parents, to
Show them the great risk to which
their children are subjected.

Japanese Girl Attacked
Within a hundred yards of
houses ablaze with lights, little
ten-year-old H u s a Morimoto
daughter o f a Hanamaulu rice
planter w a s attacked while en
route to the Japanese school about
six o clock last Tuesday morning.
The girls frantic screams were
heard by neighbors who hastened
to her aid, but on reaching the
scene, no signs of the assailant
could be found. According to the
girl's story she supposed the dark
object which came toward her to
be a cow, until the man rushed to
ward her. She managed to escape
his grasp and screamed, for help at
the same time running into the Ha
namaulu school grounds where she.
was met by those who had answet -cd
her appeal for help. On Friday
evening shortly after dark, a little
Portuguese girl called at a neigh
bor's and reported that some Fi
lipinos were in the road and she l
was afraid because they were us

neighbor saw her home, but as
