It is most gratifying to the is
lands to have our. baseball teams
return from the mainland with
such a splendid record. Our boys
have done a whole lot of unasum

order, their slate since leaving the
islands being of the cleanest, and
their baseball record hard to duplicate.
Our crack bowlers showed their
metal last week when they put it
over the Honolulu team with a
margin of 196 to the good, in the
first game of the series. The
chances of their winning the pre

expected that a much higher ave
rage will b e maintained in the
coming games to be playeM off.

made at Thursday's meeting at the
extremely small attendance of
members located between Koloa
and Kekaha, onh two members
being present from that side. Sure

some matter of considerable im
portance to bring up before the
Chamber for its consideration, and
why.' delay? ' ;'
The shrine of Bacchus univer
sally admitted to be located some
where within the dimmer recesses
of that most delectable sanctum
next door to our worthy town bar
ber continues to emit some evi
dently true and faithfull worship
pers whose blind and loudly pro
claimed faith in the renouned vin
tages of questionable age may easi
ly be noticed by the densest and
most casual passers-by.
Our hotel managers are to lie
complimented ui the public spirit
ed way in which they have offered
to faciliate matters for the Cham
ber of Commerce by entertaining
its photographers at their respec
tive hotels free of charge.
This is in line with the "get to
gether" spirit which is needed to
push matters through, and the idea
is .aii example which should be
followed' up by all who can thus
lend n helping hand.
The members in their capacity
as merchants and officials, "will be
the first to leap the harvest,' from
the coinineii.ial bodies wisdom, the
island in general ' will show in
creased prosperity, the traveling
public will benefit ly the increased
facilities, and greater comforts,
which must follow on the heels of
insistent promotion work and con
sequent denser tourist traffic.
Alreadv the Kauai Chamber of
Commerce is feeling the need of
substantial support, from other
sources than its otyn coffers, lhis
is no new discovery, as it would be
hard- t o find a self supporting

the stories of eve witnesses of the
lecent assault on a Korean are to

TiiF.late.st fad in art wc learn
is the experimentalist's school su
perseding that of the Cubist's, and
even more radical than the latter.
We sincerely trust the photograph
er don't take a notion to follow
this school of artistid execution,
or our physiogonomies may b e
hard to recognise, especially as we
are told that at a recent exhibi
tion, a well known art critic in
commenting on a work depicting
an impression of classical music
said: ' It looks like a lot if delecta
ple salads being tossed about in
swirls of wind."
Wft understand that' ' a subsidy
of one hundred dollars per month,
will be allowed the Promotion
Committe of Honolulu, b v the
County of Kauni, t o help that
body 'in its work. Present indica
tions would show that this sum
could be used to very great ad
vantage right here by otir own
commercial body and if the above
mentioned sum still stands and is
considered a well placed expendi
ture; surely a like amount awarded
by the county to our' local body
which is barely getting on its feet,
would not bet at all amiss.
Second onl'y to the "'Titanic'
disaster within recent years, is the
loss of the 'Volturno' in Mid
Atlantic caused by fire, with its
attendant toll of 136 lives. The
President of one of the foremost
seafaring unions of the United
States declares that incompetent
labor had a great deal to do with
this sad death roll. This is merely
another demonstration of the slow
working of revolution in anv field.
Gross incompetency in handling
the Titauic's life boats in perfectly
calm waters was plainly brought
out at the investigations held after
the', sad event and if steamship

Tiny latest o f the, Interislaud
Steamship Company, that of tax
ing their patrons additional
charges for the so called better
berths; on some of their steamers
savours very much of adding in
sult to injury. This we under
stand applies only to the steamers
running to' the islands' of Kauai
and Maui, the traveling public of
both these islands notably the
former; already being relegated to
has been steamers "which could no
longer be used on the run to the
big island The berths we
Kauaians are "allowed" to rest
upon have so little resemblance to
the luxurious cots of patatial
liners, taxed with some degree of
fairness, that '"First come first
served" is about the only way in

difference i n quality of "Our"
steamer's berths could be justly
disposed of. As our morning con
temporary quotes. "Let us hope a
