Tub result of .the French minis

allegation that certain generals en

showed themselves totally incom

devolved upon them, has just been

Tub triple series Soccer League
is now an established fact with the
Makaweli, All American, and
German teams competing. The
series will carry the games into
February, thus furnishing an in
teresting round of clean sport dur
ing the winter months.
Transportation has been very
readily arranged for through the
generous interest taken in the
winter sport by Mr. Baldwin,
which largely enabled the series to
become an established fact.
This is a good clean sport
which deserves nil the interest
which any series of field games
have a right to. We hope to hear
of a trophy for the winning team
of the coming contest.
The Fair to be held at Lihue
hall is now at hand. Scores of Li
hueites are devoting a great deal
of time both in furnishing the most
beautiful articles conceivable, and
in planning for the success of the
affair. Next Saturday will see
everything complete for the event
of the season. It is even whisper
that Kauai's star chef will preside
over the cuisine which assertion
alone, as all must concede, is well
worth a trip across the island.

well planned by Mrs. W. H. Rice,

The splendid manner in which
General Funston has responded to
the request of the Carnival Com
mittee to place troops in the line of
parade, bespeaks the interest and
enthusiasm which is being taken
by that branch of the service, in
the plans for the fete.
The Brigadier-general has ar
ranged for every man who can be
spared to be encamped in or near
town in order that he may have
the opportunity of seeing every
event form the 18th to the 23rd.

The massed band concert under
the leadership of Captain Bcrger
will undoubtedly prove one of the
star features of the festivities, any
one who has ever attended a con

what an immensely impressive
volume oJ sound may be attained
when called for.
Last but not least, the im

Tames D. Dougherty Director
general of the Mid-Pacific Carnival
was on the island last week, giving
some valuable pointers to our
Chamber of Commence in regard
to plans for the festivities and re
quirements o f other islands for
entries. Mr. Dougherty has re
cently visited Hawaii and Maui
where he. has put the matter of
entries both in the Princess Parade
and float procession, before the
civic bodies of those islands. The
Carnival Committee, M r .
Dougherty says, i s exceedingly
well pleased with the way they
responded, having immediately
fallen in line with the spirit which
will help to make Honolulu the
veritable Mid-Winter resort of the
whole Pacific. Just as Nice with
its mild winter climate is the
Carnival centre of the whole con
tinent a s well a s England, so
might Hawaii become the Carnival
centre of the whole Pacific. This
necessarily involves the co-operation
of all the islands, each of
which can not only be helping to
make a more imposing Carnival
but also advertise itself in an
Easthe'tic manner and thereby see
the return of its expenditures by
added Tourist traffic.
It now behoves Kauai to top the
line with the rest of them and
show that though she may be "A
bashful retiring maiden" she is
not any slower than the Valley isle
nor the Big Island.
Though not able to address the
local Chamber in a body on the
subject. M r . Dougherty has
through personal talks with many
of its members aroused their in
terest in the Carnival matter and
at the next meeting the various
points will be discussed.
Mr. Lydgate's suggestion that
Kauai furnish a "Legendary float"
in the parade is a very good one
indeed and finds great faor among
those who have discussed the ques
tion informally. Such a float em
bodying Hawaiian history and pub
lic or domestic activity will appeal
much more to the average visitor
to the islands than the alreadv
much worked over Diversified In
dustries Exhibits which have here
tofore held their sway. The
tourist can see pineapples galore,
and any amount of cane sisal etc.,
on his first trip around the island.
The Hawaiian play given at the
Elk's Carnival two years ago in
which Hawaiian life was depicted
in all its primitiveness proved to
be x)f the most vivid interest to
both Malihini and Kamaaina, not
a single declaiming comment or
unfavorable expression being offer
ed to the natural scenes and limit
ed costumes. It was simply taken
in the spirit in which it was meant
to be portrayed. This part of the
entertainment, at that time was
probably the most patronized of
the whole affair.
The tourist nowadays has but
little opportunity of seeing any
thing of the domestic life of the
Hawaiian, and any public ex
hibition of this phase of Hawaii is
bound to be thoroughly appreciat
.thanksgiving passed in quiet
manner, beautiful weather being
enjoyed all over the island, form
ing a great contrast to previoua
day s uncertain conditions.
Announce Mr. Dougherty's visit
to Kauai within the next few
weeks, when lie will take pleasure
in showing the many beautiful
article recently :ol ed fiom ,the
eading artist jewelers, and gem
merchants of America and Europe.
