pyrotechnic display, which is set

Tomorrow,- however, passengers

At 2:30 .in the afternoon the
leading event of the Carnival (the
Floral Parade) .will take placie.
The, narade will pass in -review at
the "palace grounds, and-a grand
stand, with very large seating
capacity, has been erected there
for the convenience of the public
(at so much per. public, however,
01 course.) From the palace
grounds the parade will move out
to :.oiliili baseball grounds, where
the whole show will be reassembled
and will pass in review before the
grandstand. Saturday evening the
principal sight will be the Japanese
lantern parade, which will pass in
review at the Palace grounds, that
probably being the best place from
which to witness it.
Sunday morning everybody from
Kauai will go to church, of course,
where eulogies on Washington and
special music will be the features
practically all around. In the
afternoon the principal games in
MUTANT CHANGES IN
TIE TELEPHONE SYSTEM
Superintendent F. Morrow, of
the Kauai telephone system, will
leave this afternoon for Honolulu
on a mission of the greatest in
terest to users of telephones. He
has worked out a plan whereby he
beleives he can make the service
on this island equal to the best,
and the company has approved the
entire propositicn. It will be an
expensive matter, involving a n
outlay of about $5,000, but it is
felt by the company that the im
proved condition o f things will
fully justify the outlay in the long
One of the improvements is to
put all the wires now hanging on
the poles from the central office
around t o Lihue store, thence
down to the new county building,
and on the other side, off on the
kilauea road i n cables. There
will be more than a mile of this

telephone will carry two wires in
place of one, as at present. This

sound, so annoying at times,
which is caused by induction from
the electric light wires. In order
to'instal this part of the new sys
tem, all wires to houses and the
wiring inside of houses will have
to be changed. It will be well
worth the trouble, however, tor

Charles H. Rice is laid up with
injuries received as a result of a
fairfrom cane cars in the field last
Weduesdiy, he having narrowly
missed losing a leg, perhaps, at
thetime, or being otherwise badly
It appears that the cars were in
motion and Mr. Rice went aboard
to put on the brakes. In some
way he fell across one side of the
track, ahead of a moving car. A
helper happened to be near and
grabbing Mr. Rice quickly, literal
ly jerked him from his position.
As it was the car wheel struck
along the lower side of his shoe,
and two seconds earlier would pro
bably have ami utated his leg.

will be the grand military parade,
starting at 9:30 o'clock. The best
place to view this will be near or
in the Palace grounds, as the
troops will pass in review there.
Seats may be had in the grandstand
on the-grounds. In the afternoon
will occur the military tournament
and maneuvers at Kapiolani park,

them, if interested, will be amply
afforded by "programs" issued in
Honolulu. The theaters will be
running full blast, while the Com

Club, the Moose and other social
centers will keep practically open

Republican J ernrorial Convention
will take place, the hour being 10
o'clock. 'I his will undoubtedly

advantage if they held on to this

Another improvement at Inline
has to do with the switchbo.ard in
the office. A new one will be put
in. It will be of the same design
as the present one, but of an up-to-date
and improved model.
Out in the country, a new line,
will be put in toHanalei, toreleive

The country around Lawai will
be shifted from the Lihue lines
and put on the Waimea circuit,
and a copper wire will be put in
there in place of the old iron wire
which has been in use heretofore.
This will ensure the reliability of
the service and make it far more
Those are the principal changes
to be made, but the plan includes
a multiplicity of minor improve
ments, which the company feels
can be made within the estimate of
cost submitted by Mr. Morrow.
While as much haste as possible
will be made in making the im
provements, there will be delay in
getting the material on the ground.
On arriving a t Honolulu M r .

material will have to be ordered
from factories in the States, it will

and L- D. Tiniinons acting as sec
retary in place of P. L. Rice, ab

his early departure from the Is

would be shown at Lihue, Koloa

made a plea for one exhibition at
Eleele, and the suggestion received
immediate endorsement. It was
pointed out, however, that the
only time open would be Sunday

L. D. Tiniinons.
There was discission regarding
the time of the Ad. Club's visit,
and it was decided to leave that
entireh to the Ad. Club itself.
Mr. Bratult disliked v.erv much
the idea of "the Ad. Club being
permitted to, pay any part of the
expense of the excursion, and
several others em'orsed his sugges
tion that Kauai should pay all "ex
penses anddo the thing properly.
Others pointed out, however, that
the Ad. Club had already made its
iiriangeinent in this regard (which
were on the -lines, adopted for the
excursion to Hilo) and it might be
better to let them work out these
plans to their own liking the first,
time and Kauai could "do the
grand" laler'oii if it desired. There
the matter rested.
On the question of transporta
tion, the following offeredinachines
to the committee as a starter; E
E. Mahlum, John Fassoth, T .
Brandt. II. H; Brodie, J. I. Silva.
K. C. Hopper, H. D. Wishard,
Dr..G1aisyer, C. W. Spitz and B.
D Baldwin -, The committee re
garded this as' a fine beginning,
and expressed itself as confident of
having transportation- facilities to
spare very soon. The Waimea de
take care of the entire party and
their Lihne friends thrown in on
that side fif the island, delivering
them all safely iii. Lihue. This
will be taken under consideration
by the committee.
Mr. Brandt introduced the sub
ject o f the proposed new high
school, and it provoked a long dis
cussion, participated in by most of
those present. Representative J.
H. Coney, who had most to do in
piloting the item tor Lihue High
School through the Legislature,
was on h i s feet several times.
There was a difference of opinion
as to whether or not the county
could spare the money right now
for the high school, but the Cham
ber was unanimous on the point
that the start should be made by
acquiring the old court house pro
perty at once for that purpose. The
following resolution, introduced
by Mr. Brandt, was carried with
out a dissenting voice, and the sec
retary instructed t o submit the
same t o the proper authorities:
"Beit resolved: That it is tlie
sencc of this meeting of the Kauai
Chamber of Commerce that in view
of the probable establishment of a
high school at Lihue, that the pre
sent court house lot and buildings
thereon be turned over to the De
partment of Public Instruction for
this purpose; and, further, that
copies of this resolution be sent
to the Governor and Land Com
missioners." At 12-20 the meeting adjourned.
On account of the prospective
absence of so many baseball leaders
in Honolulu, the meetMig of Kauai
baseballers, originally set for
February 19, has been postponed
for two weeks.
Work of oragnzing the Lihue
players is getting along slowly, but
there is every prospect of a good
team before the season opens.
It is reported from Koloa that a
team from there will not likely en
ter the league this year. But con
ditions may change.
T h e engagement o f Captain
George B. Leavitt, superintendent
of the Kauai Railway Company,
and Miss Mabel Hastie, of the
Eleele "Highlands," has been an
nounced. The bride-to-be is a
teacher in the Hauapepe school,
and one of the most popular young
ladies of Kauai. Captain Leavitt
has been here only a few years,
but has become well known and is
a general favorite.

THE GERMANS 10
The Germans of Lihue, compos
ing the football arid other sporting
aggregations held a meeting in the
quarters of the Kegel Club' at 3
o'clock Sunday afternoon, at which
it was jlecidetl'sfo form a new,

combine the forces now interested

This part of tlie "business was
accomplished without difficulty,
and the new.naiiic selected for the
combination is "Deutsches Spbrt
ing Club," and its headquarters
will be in Lihue.
The matter of football came up
for discussion, and it was decided
to issue a challenge for three
games with a picked team from the
Mak"aweli and All American play
ers. The Germans felt that such
a team should be a strong one, and
that the community would take a
great deal of interest in a series of
the sort-indicated. The Makawe
lis and All Americans will be ex
pected to put up a cup to be play
ed for. '
' Tliesuggestion was made that
t h e Series begin next Sunday.
This is found to be hardly practi
cable, however, for the rcasoii that
many of the best players of both
the All American and Makaweli
teams will be .absent in the city.

great success, and will result in a
