LIHUE, KAUAI, TERRITORY OF HAWAII, TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 3 1914
Mrs. C. II . Bishop and her
daughter, Miss Ethel Bishop, have
been most welcome guests of old
friends in this neighborhood for
the past ten days. Daily functions
of one kind or another have been
planned by the ladies of Lihue in
their honor; and, despite the un
kindness o f the weather, these
affairs have been much enjoyed.
The ladies are the house guests
of Mrs. W. II. Rice, Ir. On Mon
day of last week a card party in
their honor was given bv Mrs. De
Bretteville. On Tuesday Mrs. Albert
Wilcox entertained at luncheon,
while Mrs. C. A. Rice and Mrs.
Weber entertained in the same
way on Wednesday and Thursday,
respectively. Thus it has pone on,
from day to day.
The occasion at Mrs. Wilcox's
was in tlie nature of a "poi lun-
ciieou, and tne color scneine was
vellow Those present, besides the
hostess and the guests of honor,
were: .Mrs.. C. A4 Rice, Mrs. F.
Weber, Mrs. H. Wolters, Mrs. C.

Miss S. Purvis.
Mr. C. H. Bishop owned the ori
ginal Li live store from which de
veloped the present emporium
bearing the same name. He was
one of Kauai's most successful
business men, retiring, however,
a short time prior to his death
with the intention of devoting his
time to other investments.
This is the first visit of Mrs. Bi
shop to Lihue since the departure
of the family from Kauai about
twelve -ye a r s ago. Miss Ethel,
however, had visited here once
since then. Thpjfamily owned and
occupied the "resent home of the
Wishards, and that house, by the
wav,' is the birthplace of Miss
Mrs. Bishop and her daughter
reside in California.
Henry, the 12-year old son of H.
S. Padgett, broke his right fore-arm
last Thursday while cranking an
automobile, the break being be
tween the elbow and the wrist.
R. W. Shingle, of Honolulu, and
Ghas. A. Rice, of Lihue, were Ma
kaweli visitors near the week-end.
A leading event in Makaweli
during the week was a buffet supper
given by Mrs. B. D. Baldwin on
Saturday evening in honor of Miss
L. O'range, whose engagement to
Mr. J. X. Rankin was recently an
nounced. The affair throughout
yas most enjoyable. Among those
present were: Mr. and Mrs. F. A.

Merchant to Hospital
'Ah Chock, t h e well known
Chinese merchant ot Kapaia, was
removed to the Lihue hospital" near
the weekend, it being the opinion
of his physician that he could receive-
more systematic attention
there than at home. He has not
been well in quite awhile, but not
uiitil lately did his symptoms call
'for more careful treatment.
RESULTS IN TIE
The football contest Sunday
afternoon between the Makawcli
and All American teams on the
Lihue grounds was probablv the
hardest fought battle of the season.
Both sides went into the game in
a weakened condition. Makaweli
was minus several good players,
and had to play substitutes; while
the All Americans were short in
the same wav and had to add the
same number of men to make up
their team. This knowledge of
weakness, however, as sometimes
happens, caused the men to play
with unusual determination, s o
that there was real ginger in every
part of the game.
In the first period Richardson ,
of the Makawehs, and Hill of the
home team collided, and the form
er was laid out bv a nasty cut
acoss the shin, inflicted bv Hill's
shoe. The accident was unavoid
able, as could b e plainly seen;
and no one manifested more regret
for it than Mr. Hill himself. Dr.
Putinan hastily diessed the wound
and the injured man was removed
beyond the side-lines in order thai
the game might proceed. (
With the loss of Richardson,
the Makaweli eam was so weaken
ed that defeat seemed easily possi
ble. It was then that the soccer,
spirit of the visitors showed itself
Every man from the smallest up
to big Ilayselden fought like a

ranged from fiftv cents to a dollar.
These features, together with a se

E B. Bridgewater, who returned
to Honolulu bv the Kinau Satur

f..vesterday afternoon, had the
following to sa of the matter:

against him is to be made on a

the motor was returned to him, it
was taken away from him by the
real owners, who proved to him
that Bridgewater had never had
title to it, but had only been al

"Prosecuting officers say there
is a possibility of other charges,
falling under the head of gross
cheat also, being made against the
editor. So far Bridgewater only has
one warrant against him."

Mr. Bridgewater had been over
here for a week or ten days, spend
ing most of his time around Ha
nainaulu and Lihue. He was aware
of the charges (it being reported
that others will follow the one
made bv Canario) being worked
up against him at Honolulu, but
expressed confidence that he would
be able to explain matters to the
satisfaction of everyone.
. Before leaving for Honolulu,
Mr. Bridgewater, at th request
of Tuk Gardun Island, wrote
out the following statement of his
case ashe'ithen understood it, for
the information of his friends on
' Concerning that which the Ho

know that though I've failed to
