ARTIST TO PIT
L. M. Hale, a scenic artist, en
gaged by J. H. Coney to paint the
Spouting Horn for the Kauai float
intheFloral Parade, cameup ona re
cent Kinau and returnedby thesaine
vessel to Honolulu. His object
in coming was to personally view
the scene and prepare a picture
from actual sight, from which the
painting will be made. For that
purpose, in company with Mr
Coney, he visited the Spouting
The artist is not an islander, but
has visited the group many times.
He is a Californian and a man of
note in his line; and the promoters
of the Spouting Horn feature for
the parade feel themselves quite
fortunate in having secured his
services almost by accident.
As now planned out, natural
stone will be used to set off the
painting of the Spouting Horn,
and will be so arranged on a dray
as to thoroughly represent the
scene about the curiosity. The
float will be decorated and as a
whole will be a striking feature of
A good deal of time has been ex
pended by Representative Coney,
Rev. Mr. Lydgate and others in
developing this idea, and it is al
ready apparent that they will score
a big success with it. About all
the money required for expenses
has been raised, so that, with the
securing of the services of an artist
and arrangements for a suitable
conveyance a t Honolulu, the
feature is now well under way.
College men will be interested to
know that Charles Lathrop, busi

sity, has resigned from his office.

In reply to your inquiry, we
beg to say that all cabin passeng
er s travelling on Inter-Island
steamers arriving at Honolulu on
Saturday, February 14, 1914 and
continuing up to Saturday, Feb
ruarv 21, 1614, and departing
from Honolulu between the above
dates and u p to and including
Friday, February 27th, are enti

From all Kauai ports to Hono
lulu and return $8.00.
This rate applies only to the
cheaper rooms on the steamer
"Kinau" and passengers occupy
ing berths in the best rooms on
that steamer must pay $l.G0 ex
tra each way.
As far as we know at the pre
sent time, the regular schedule
of our Kauai steamers will h e
maintained with the exception of
the steamer "Kinau" which we
intend to have arrive at Honolulu
on Saturday, February 21st instead
of the 22nd.
The Kauai Telephone Company
will be Included in the investigation
of the Public Utilities Commission
now being carried on among public
utility corporations throughout the
islands. The investigation proper
commenced Monday, February 2,
with the Inter-Island Steam Navi
It is the plan of the commission
to take one water company , one
electric company, one telephone
company, one steamship company,
one railroad company and so on
down the line and investigate each,
thereby establishing a standard by
which to judge smaller siniil;ircon
cens in the endeavor to ascertain as
to whether or not the smaller con
cerns come up to the required
standard. The Mutual Telephone
Company at Honolulu will doubt
less be taken as the standard tor
concerns of its kind, and the inves
tigation of the Kauai Telephone
Company will be made shortly after
a standard is fixed.
Mr. Raymond Goes
Inspector Raymond, of the
Department of Education, sailed
by the Kinau for Honolulu, after
spending about three weeks on
Kauai, during which he visitud all
of the schools. From every side
the teachers report having gained
many useful pointers from Mr.
Raymond, and the inspector left
with a clearer and better impression
of Kauai school work than he had
lever had lefore. Ik-fore going he
! expressed himself as charmed with
I Kauai, and as appreciating very
. much the cordiality ol the recep
1 tiou he had been given everywhere.
"I do not know when I hnve
had to with a public contract which
has turned out so satisfactorily as
the one of the new Kauai county
building," said C. 13. Ripley, the
architect, prior to his departure
for Honolulu on Saturday.
"On account of the keen com
petition between contractors." he
continued," a great deal was saved
on the estimated cost of the building-sufficient,
I think, to pay for
some extra improvements which
were not included in the original
plans, and to completely furnish
the building in excellent style.
"I drew the plans with the idea
that the bids would likely run a
little over the appropriation, and
had already figured out how we
could get around that obstacle.
Fierce competition showed itself
in the bidding, however, with the
result that Kauai is to be a larger
gainer than had ever been expected.
"As I said before, I have never
had to do with trecting a public
building which gave me greater
satisfaction than this one. The con
tractors have done, and are doing
excellent work; and while I do not
figure how they can make any
money to speak of out of it, I sup
pose they know their own business
best. When the extra 'frills', which
we now propose, are put on, I
think Kauai will like the building
quite as well as I do".
Chicken Thief Killed.
"I shot and killed a chicken
thief", mused Sheriff Rice Friday
morning." Put three balls through
him, with a Colt's revolver".
"Filipino or a niongoose"?-asked
"Neither", replied the law's
chief minion;" it was a cat.".
It appears that V. II. Rice, Sr.,
had been missing his yonmi feu!
for sometime, as many ns fourteen
ducklings having lis.i"'ait '' my
steriously. Hesuspected moi..,oose,
and set a trap for the culprit or
culprits. The cat showed tip in the
trap, and Sheriff Rice, who happen
ed to be in th: house, was called
out to i n t e r v i e w the prisoner.
There was no direct evidence, it (
was true; but circumstantial evi-'
nence was so strong that the Sheriff '
drew bis revolver and proceeded
to satisfy the demands of the law.
The cat apparently died after the
third dose of lead; and if he reallv
has nine lives he will have to dig
his wav up out of three feet of dirt,
beneath which he has been planted,
to utilize the remaining iix,
