The Transportation Committee
of the Chamber of Commerce does
not intend to let any grass grow
under its leet in the matter of ef
forts to secure a better overland
mail service o n Kauai. A few
hours after the meeting o f the
Chamber, at which the committee
was instructed to proceed, Chair
man Coney was busy on his plans.
The matter will be taken up with
the proper authorities right away,
and no stone will be left unturned
to secure the service.
At present mail is despatched

way, on both routes, daily. The

possible, however, to invite addi-

R. J. Baker, the photographer,
who came up last week to display
the slides of pictures recently taken
by him on this island, expects to
return to Honolulu by the Kinau,
sailing this afternoon. His visit
here was under the auspices of
the Chamber of Commerce, that
body guaranteeing his expenses.
Friday night the pictures were
exhibited in Eleele hall. Unfortu
nately for the Baker series, the Park
theater had announced, prior to
knowing of his prospective visit,
a heavy program for that evening,
so that the audience for the former
was not nearly so large as had
been hoped for
Saturday evening the pictures
were shown before a large and ap
preciative audience in Lihue hall.
Last night the program was re
peated in Waimea. It was a matter
of regret that the pictures could
not have been displayed in other
places, but lack of time made this

THE OU GLUR RAS
A JOLLY E
Although compelled by threaten
ing weather to change its original
plans from a moonlight picnic near
Nawiliwili, the Ou Club had a
most enjoyable time last Friday
evening in the quarters of the Kegel
Club. Quite a large partv of
'Ous" turned out, and the fun
was kept Up until near midnight.
The chaperons of the occasion
were Mr. and Mrs. H. Rohrig and
R. V. T. Purvis.
The change o f place for the
gathering made it possible to add
the pleasures of bowliug to the
program, and most members of the
merry party took a hand. No re
cords were broken, but all enjoyed
the diversion immensely. Dancing
was also made a feature, but in a
limited way o n account of the
meagerness of space in the bowling
The "picnic" planned for the
outing was turned into a spread
indoors, and refreshments were
served throughout the evening.
Among those present were: Mr.
and Mrs. Rohrig, R. W. T. Pur
vis, Misses Louise Day, Katherine
Mclntyre, D. Grote, E . Grote,
Lottie Tordan. Maud de Bretteville,
and Messrs. W. H. Grote, S. E.

Was Paid In Full
Before leaving for Honolulu,
Tom Gunn, the aviator, claimed
that he was underpaid $100.00 of
the money guaranteed by the Kauai
promoters. It has since developed
that the $100.00 which had been
previously held out by the promo
ters for cause, was turned over to
Gunn's manager, the aviator not
being aware of this fact at the time
he was making his parting "kick."

AD. CLUB MAN ON
Henry Giles, representative of
the Ad. Club in the matter of ar
rangements at this end for the ap
proaching tour ot fifty niembets of .
the organization, sailed for home
Saturday afternoon, completely
satisfied with the way matters are
shaping up. It w as his intention
to reoort to the Ad. Club at the
meeting at noon today, and he
probably did so.
"I do not know", said Mr.
Giles, "just when the excursion
can be pulled off; but am of the
opinion that nothing definite will
be done until the Carnival is out
of the way. The Ad. Club is in the
Carnival up to the neck, and will
have all it can handle in the next
couple of weeks. Before the end
of the month, however, Kauai will
know just what we can do as I
understand i t is now our. next
"With the Honolulu bunch, we
shall wish to bring along repre
sentative men in the movement
from Hawaii and Maui. Mr. L. A.
Thurston, for instance, I feel quite
sure, will be here as a representa
tive from Hilo, and Mr. John A.
Scott and perhaps one other may
come from that island. From Maui
there will be two or three of the
more prominent business men. With
these delegations, it will be pos
sible to have representation from
all the islands at the meeting it is
proposed to hold in Lihue, so that
Kauai will be able to hear of the
Ad. Club from several angles and
"I have been asked for an opi
nion as to the character of supper
that would likely be most enjoyed
at Lihue. Some of your committee
men have suggested a European
spread, while others seem to favor
a luau. My own opinion is that it
would be about a staii'u-off. Of late
years the luau has about passed
out of the list of features in Hono
lulu, and to manv (if not most)
of the visiters an event of this
sort would be a real novelty which
thev would enjov very much. Of
course, however, the European
spread is standard ar.d is always
enjoyable. I think, therefore, that
if the question were passed up to
the Ad. Club itself, there would
be a tie vote; so it occurs to me
that Kauai had bf-tter d o just
as she feels inclined in regard to
"I have been mveh pleased with
the spirit of friendly interest mani
fested at every hand in regard to
the excursion, and am going away
feeling certain that it will be a
great success and that much good
will come out of it."
Big Luau At Koloa
A grand reception and luau was
given Friday evening at the resi
dence of M. A. Mikaele, Koloa. in
honor of Madame Puahi and the
members o f Eddie Fernandez'
troupe. The parly was a very
large one, and besides the feast
some excellent music and dancing
were included i n the program.
The affair broke up about midnight.
