CARHIVAL 15 A
The Carnival at Honolulu is at
an end, the last of the program
having-been carried out yesterday.
The crowd of visitors from the
Coast wai fully up to expectations,
while more people from the
different islands attended and took
part in the Carnival than ever be
fore. Cn account of a considerable
increase in hotel and lodging house
room, there was not the overcrowd
ing that had been feared; although
it must be stated that the city was
taxed to its fullest capacity in this
The program, which had been
spread out over ten daws, was
rather thin in spots in the earlier
part of the Carnival; but on Satur
day and Mondav there wis much
to see and do. The Carnival plans
were in the hands of efficient com
mittees, and the various feature?
were brought off in a creditable
manner. The. city was probably
never more elaborately or prettily
decorated (or at any rate, since the
days around annexation, when
"patriotism" was running near
the boiling point,) and some of
the schemes were quite expensive.
A few of the electric light effects
were attractive, and were doubtless
gotten up at considerable expense.
Lack of space prevents any ex
tended write-up of the features to
day, but Tub Gakdisn Island
will endeavor to present some of
them in pictures henceforward.
The people of Kauai who were
fortunate enough to take in the
Carnival, were having a fine time
at last accounts, and many of them
will be home tomorrow
The Carnival was an expensive

THE HIGH SCHOOL
Between now and the time the
new county building is occupied,
Governor Piukham will issue an
executive order transferring the
present court house lot, and build
ings thereon, to the Department of
Education for the purposes of a
Superintendent T. H. Gibson,
proceeding upon his interpretation
of Act 106. of the last legislature,
addressed a letter to the Com
missioner of Public Lands, request
ing that this action be taken. Com
missioner J. D. Tucker forthwith
took the matter up with the Gover
nor, with the result above stated.
As the matter now stands, the
building for the high school is
safe, and the teaching force will
be provided by t' e Department of
Education; so it seems the only
thing left is for Kauai to furnish
the pupils. The school will be
opened at the beginning of the
term in September. In the mean
while the details as to instructors,
course of study, etc., will be
shaped out by the Department.
A great deal of the credit for
the present prompt and satisfactory
action on the matter is due Com
missioner T. Brandt and Supervi
sor Brodie, their work being as
sisted at the last by the resolution
of the Chamber of Commerce,
which was adopted at the last
There are those on Kauai who
fear that enough pupils cannot be
obtained to make the school a suc
cess rig.u at the start. The De
partment of Education, however,
has a different idea about it, and
seems to feel that with a special
adjustment'of J.he. course of study
"quite a satisfactory number o f
pupils may be recruited.
The Flower Show
One of the real treats of the
Carnival in Honolulu was the ex
hibition of hibiscus, ferns, palms,
etc., at the new armory on Thurs
day. It was by !ong odds the
most extensive display of the sort
ever attempted in these Islands,
and was viewed by 'a record-breaking
audience. Mrs. C. A. Rice
was the onlv large exhibitor of Ka
uai raised flowers, she h.ivingthirty
exceedingly pretty specimens.
Mrs T. f. King, with twenty-five
varieties; and Miss Soper, with
fifteen, occupied the same table.
This combined exhibit came in for
much attention and was greatly
A single flower sent bv Mrs. J.
M. Lvdgale was also much ad

The ywung ladies of the Eleele
Highlands will give a social dance
in Eleele hall on the evening of
February 28. Theaffair will not be
a large one, but will undoubtedly
be very pleasant.
Miss Ethel Clark has left the
Hanainaulu school for Honolulu.
The Department has been for
tunate, however, in securing the
services of Mrs. Ella Christian,
who has consented to teach there
until April and perhaps tor the re
mainder of the term.

The above is not a very, clear picture, but it gives some idea of Kauai's float, The
Spouting Horn, in the Floral Parade at Honolulu last Saturday. The scene of the
Spouting Horn is casilv recognized in the picture, and is good. By means of a tank'of
water, concealed beneath whete the Hawaiian on the left is sitting, and a pump, spray
was forced up into the air in a manner like the real Spouting Horn; while the mub
ling sound made by the original was also produced. As the float moved along the
natives caught fish from the water at the base ot the Spouting Horn-the fish being of
paper, and containing, on the inside, a write-up of the beauties of Kauai Of the float

Ktinui was well represented with n novel and artistic floatentitled the "Spouting Horn," designed

while a clever arrangement of pipe and blowers showered the t-peetatora along the line of innrcli from

den Island were distributed along the line of march. This lloat was one of the big features in the
float scction'of the parade and was greeted with cheers by the thousands who Raw it. 1
Reasons For Delaying Action
On Improvements In Stea
A representative of The Gakdkn
Island called on the Inter-Island
Steamship Company, at Honolulu,
Thursday, in regard to the local
desire that Kauai steamers arrive
at Nawiliwili and Honolulu, res
pectively, at daylight in place
2 a. in. and, also, the effort of the I tournament a proper start-off.
Chamber of Commerce to secure i Thus far not so mai-y have signi

mer for ports between. Nawiliwili 1 and the executive committee is
In respect to the latter, Pres'
dent James A. Kennedy state
that he had waited Until tlje lr
minute, before filing the prop,
papers for the new mail-carryii
contract to hear from Kauai. I
had understood that the Transp
tation Committee of the Ki;u..i
Chamber of Commerce would see
him in regard to the mailer, and
would have certain recommenda
tions and proposal? to make; but
that no one had yet appeared. He
felt ihat it was now too hue to tlo
anything, unless, indeed, the new
mail contract could be amended to
include an extra steamer, a n l
Kauai could give assurances that
there would be sufficient business
to protect his company from loss.
In regard t o the proposal to
have steamers arrive at Nawiliwih
and Honolulu a t daylight, Mr.
Kennedy gave the following as
three reasons why the wishes of
Kauai could not be granted:
First, the difficulties and danger
of getting passengers out to stea
mers at Nawiliwili at 8 o'clock p.
m. particularly on bad nights when
the sea is rough.
Second, the contracts with the
United States government which
require that mail be. delivered at
points between Nawiliwili a u d
Waimea early in the morning.
Third, that a delay of approxi
mately four hours in leaving Na
wiliwili (arriving,) would mean
the loss of a whole half day in the
work of discharging at Waimea.
M r .- Kennedy gave assurance
that his company wis ready and
willing to meet Kauai half way at
any time, but asked that due con
sideration be given to the above
points, which he regarded as con
stituting quite valid reasons for
hesitating to consider the proposals
