The Engineers of Kauai are res
ponding heartily to the call of the
Committee in charge of the Mill
Engineers Convention to be held
in Honolulu in October, under the
suspices of the Hawaiian Engine
ering Association. Nearly all of the
engineers of this island have signi
fied their willingness to attend the
meeting and the managers of the
Estates have entered into the mat
ter of aiding the engineers toward
attending the meeting in a .very
gratifying manner. The represen
tative of Kauai on the Committee
is Mr. H. S. Truscott, who is do
ing more than his share toward
having this Island well represent
ed at the convention. The parti
cular subject which Mr. Truscott
will handle at the meeting i s
"Labor Saving Devices," and from
his past efforts in this direction, it
is safe to say that no engineer in
the Territory is better qualified to
handle the topic. Much depends on
the success of this first meeting
for, if the plans work out well,
such meetings will become annual
affairs similar to those of the Plant
ers' Association and of the Che
mists. We learn from the Chair
man of the Committee that much
of interest aside from the meeting
itself is being planned for the en
gineers, and this feature will help
to round out a very interesting
three day's program. It is hoped
that nothing will deter any engi
neer on Kauai from attending the
meeting, for the Territory is en-tering--upon
ff'very serious peridd
of two or three years of depression
and whatever can be done to assit
the plantations to better face the
situation, shoud receive hearty

After a six weeks recess the
Lihue church opened once more last
Sunday. A special service was
held in the evening to inaugurate
the new electric light installation
which was recently made through
the generosity of Messrs Albert
and G. N. Wilcox.
The lighting scheme consists of
a large multi bulb chandelahra
in the centre of the congregational
part of the building; while large
frosted globe ceiling lamps take
care of the Sunday School portion.
Back of the minister's Dais hang a
number of artistic bell shaped
lights, giving an appropriate dim
A very plensing form of choral
service had been arranged by Mr.
Lydgate in which a large congre

The choir though all but dis
banded for several weeks still
showed the same high class talent.
Just before rendering his sermon
Mr. J,ydgate asked tlie congrega
tion to join in a rising note of
shanks to the generous honors of
the splendid lighting system,
which was duly responded to.
Mr. Lydgate also asked the con
sent of his flock to postpone next
Sunday's service 'until the follow
ing .Sunday in order that he might

week, having been especially urged
to -epresent Kauai at the meetine

Invitations were sent out by Mr.
C. Maser last week to attend a
meeting at the Bowling Club house
on Sunday, for the purpose of or
ganizing a football club. As a re
sult quite a large number of en
thusiastic voung sportsmen gather
ed together to dicuss the matter.
It was decided that two teams
should be formed in Lihue at first;
as evenly matched as possible, and
possibly a second eleven at some
Officers were elected as follows:
President, Mr. A. Siebel; Secre
tary, Mr. H. Reichelt.
Mr. Siebel is an old football en
thusiast having played in a crack
university team in Germany, and
the club is assured of an able and
efficient leader in him. A number
of bladders and casings direct from
Birmingham are already on hand,
and the field on Lihue park
grounds; will be attended to im
mediately. It would be gratifying to see
some of our other plantation cen
tres follow suit in this respect;
then we might hear of some chal
lenges issued between rival teams
or even a cup to fignt for.
Burglary and Stabbing
Affray at Eleele
The accustomed serenity of Ele
ele was jarred considerably Mon
day night b y the occurance of
three attempts at burglary, a cut
ting affair in connection with one
of the house-breaking stunts; the
arrest of one of the burglars, and
escape of the other, with the police
in hot pursuit at press hour in the
neighborhood at Makaweli'
At Eleele one of the burglars
was grappled with by a Japanese.
He drew a cane knife and inflicted
an ugly, through not dangerous,
wound across the side of the neck
of his would-be captor. This man,
whose name is Zauito Rodrigues,
escaped in the direction of Maka
weli, and is the one the police ex
pect soon to have behind prison
Two Japanese houses were en
tered, At one of them the Japanese
occupants succeed in capturing one
of the burglars, turning him over
to plantation policeman Louis A.
Cabral, who in turn delivered him
to officers sentt over from Koloa
by Deputy Sheriff Henry Blake.
This man, whose first name i s
Rodrigues (surname unknown to
the police at this writing) is now
in the jail at Koloa.
The burglaries, and close ap
proach to murder, emphasize the
need of a policeman to he regular
ly stationed at Eleele, to watch
out for an element of dangerous

As a result of extended experi
ments carried out in the Cincin
natti public schools; it has been
demonstrated that on the condition
of the public's teeth largely de
pends how the pupil will succeed
in school. The results have been
so much in favor of pupils with
sound teeth that more than six
thousand children of Cincinnati's
public schools receive free dental
treatment and in a short time every
child in the town attending a pub
lic school will have sound teeth.
The school supplies each pupil
with a new tooth brush and a tube
of paste once a month the occasion
being accompanied with a free
luncheon at which proper masti
cation is advocated.
The children are taught to clean
their teeth twice a day, and it is
claimed co-operate very well in
this new training.
Mr. W. II. Rice, Jr., and family
returned Friday from Haena where
together with Mr. and Mrs. Lyd
gate and their family they had
spent a pleasant vacation. Sheriff
Rice also spent a few days enjoy

The baseball season of 913
culminated i n a most elaborate
luau given by Mr. B. D. Baldwin,
at his residence at Makaweli last
The guests of honor were the
Makaweli team, the officers of the
K. A. A. A. umpires, during the
season, and people of the district
supporting the Makaweli team.
A large platform had been erect
ed, capable of holding tables for
200 guests which was aftei wards
utilized for dancing. A separate
bower was arranged for the Lihue
band which discoursed sweet
music from 6 p. m. until 1:30 A. m.
Wires wre strong all around the
spacious grounds making a
veritable fairy garden.
Promptly at 7:30 the guests
took their places at the tables at
which every variety of Hawaiian
dishes had been placed, and for the
next hour or more full justice was
done to Mr. Baldwin's hospitality.
following this, Mr. Baldwin in
well chosen words and few, a s
President of the K. A. A. A. pre
sented Capt. Joe Fassoth, with the
1913 trophy. Joe for once in his
life seemed unable to say anything,
and it was not until he was stimu
lated and assisted by being told to
close his eyes and imagine he was
talking to an umpire that he could
express his feelings and thanks,
alter which, t o quote his own
words, he "slid for home."
Following this Mr. S. K. Hay
seldon manager of the Makaweli
Club, on behalf of the team,
thanked Mr. Baldwin for his
Short speeches were made by Dr.
Glaisyer and Mr. Wishard, follow
ing whom, Mr; H. S. Trflscott in
inmitable manner, on behalf o f
Makaweli people, in general,
thanked Mr. George Krue of Ke
kaha for his work as pitcher during
the season. It was recognized that
he deserved the lions' share o f
"bringing home the bacon."
He went on to say that in ap
preciation of his services a sub
scription list had been started two
months ago, win or lose, for the
purpose o f procuring a suitable
moments o f this feeling, which
took the concrete form of a hand
some gold watch.
This was presented to Mr. Kruse
by Mrs. B. S. Baldwin, in a few
Mr. Kruse then proved his abi
lity as an orator as well as a pitch
er. This concluded the ceremonies
and the tables were removed and
dancing was in order.
Among the visitors from the
other side of the island were noted
Mr. and Mrs. Weber, Mr. and
Mrs. Wishard, Dr. and Mrs.
Glaisyer, Mrs. McQueen, Misses
