the nineteen acres lie turned otr

"rother Trent saw a "nigger"
right away: and proceedeel to take
n fall out of the cannery company
and the appraisers on account of
it. Immediately the little land
wolves joined in the chorus, and
have kept ft up since.
In matters of this sort, it is well
to remember that there are two
sides to a question. The cannery
ooni pany has made no attempt to
hog an thing, and, as far as we
can see, have aked for no more
than is required by the h-gitiinatc
and proper demands of their can
nery business. This was evidently
the opinion of the appraisers, and
is the opinion of the land depart
ment at Honolulu, which has gone
inlo the matter very thoroughly.
1 lie '."oiniiany plans to put in a
very large plant one capable ot
taking care of all the fruit in that
neighborhood.. Ilesides, there will
l e an ofiice building, store houses,
homes for employes of the can
nery and a part of thu tract is to
be occupied by neat little cottages
for laborers who will work in the
cannery and the neighborhood, for
the company. When the whole
tiling is worked out, it will be
found that there is none of the
laud left for any other purpose,
and that every foot of it has been
taken up for Icgimate cannery
This paper is able to make the
above assertions, knowing exactly
is talking about. It is
tnrther able to say that the govern
ment is a great deal more familiar
with the situation than., the land
commission appears to he; and it
is fiuihei willing to venture that
I here may in a very few elavs be
another land commission in charge
of this and other such matters, and
that the present commission till
thereat ter be at liberty to do its
;nind-stand playing on the street
After the above was put into
type, a letter from two of the ap
praisers referred to (Mr. II. II.
Hrodie and Mr. C. Wolters) was
received, and is presented in a li
the, r column. The third appraiser.
;ne, is awav in
Honolulu, but had he been here
(we are informed) would probably
have also signed the communica
tion. Mr. Hrodie is interested in the
pineapple business in another part
I of the island, and had he followed
I a practice quite common near Ho-
noluiu would likely not h ive been
j-o favorable to an opposition busi
j ness and cannery, as tothegovein
Mneiit. Mr. Wo Iters is manager of
; Ilauamaulu end of the Lihue
Stigar Coui'.anv s business, and
.We have not ct heard, of sugar
j men of other islands putting tlicm-
selves out of the wav to assist the
pineapple business along. Mr.

has been. Five to ten dollars an

ordinarv purpose, and the Apprais

Thk suggestion in last week's
issue of this paper that an agricul
tural and mechanical fair be added
to the Carnival program next year
in order to "fill it out" found em
phasis in the experiences of the
past few days at Honolulu. The
program had been stretched out to
such an extent, in an effort to
cover the ten days of the "cele
bration," that it ran exceedingly
tlrn in places, and earlier visit
ors to the city were compelled to
spend most of their time window
shopping. There were two real car
nival days Saturday and yester
day; and the balance of Hie pro
gram could have been fitted handi
ly into those days in a pinch.
We have no objection to p. week
or ten days of carnival features.
it would be fine, and everybody
would enjoy it. But there is no fun
in standing around on one leg and
then ihe other, all day, waiting
for something to happen. There
should be something doing every
hour of each da yes, every mi
nute; and the country folk and
strangers should be informeel as
to just when, where and how to
find and see it.
An agricultural and mechanical
fair would itseit eteate other fea
tures, such as conventions, ban
quets, perhaps, etc. Then there
are other things that could easily
be: thought out. By starting early
(profitting, of course, by the ex
periences" of this year) a program
could be shr.ped out which would
be wqrth even-body's while to
Kauai got together on the High
school matter, and a big success
has already heen scoreel. Kauai is
now together on the matter of a
welcome lo the Honolulu Ad.
Club, and another triumph wiil
be realized. Now, why cannot Ka
uai get together on the harbor
question, ami, by united effort,
pull that over the line? This pro
position is at this time very much
alive at Washington. It has its
foes, as well as its friends. Its
friends need Kauai endorsement
and encouragement. The support
of outsiders is good, but is local
effort that will count. It would he
a splendid idea lo arrange a public,
mass meeting; thresh the question
out thoroughly a n d submit lo
Washington resolutions express
ing in plain terms the wishes of
the island in regard to the matter.
Something should be clone and
quickly; for the whole proposition
will soon be submitted by the com
mittee to Congress for action, one
way or the other. If this chance is
lost, it will be a long time before
Kauai gets another show foi the
T it K announcement elsewhere
in this issue regarding the high
school may be aceepteel as official.
The old court house will be the
place, a n d, barring unforeseen
circumstances, the school will be
opened September 1. Taking it all
in all, the recently organized "pull
together" for the school has work
ed beautifully It is now up to Ka-1
uai to make a success of it. Let
everybody think well of it, speak
well of it and encourage, in any
and every possible way, the en
rolling of pupils for it in Septem
ber. It is a big advance in the
right direction. Mid Kauai will ap
preciate more and more, as time
goes on. the value and importance
of the school.
A Kauai baseball team would
likely have been triinme-d upaliolit
as badly as were the Hiios and All
Mauis at Honolulu; but it would
have been a mighty fine thing
could Kauai have been in t h e
games just the same. We now
know exactly what a local team
would be ni) against next year,
and have plenty of time in which
to prepare for it. elet busy think
ing it over.
Kauai likes (lovernor I'inkham
as a man, and will give him a un
animous glad-hand o n his ap
proaching visit to the island. lie
may be assured in advance that
the welcome will be from the heart,
and for what he used to be as well
as for what he is todav.
Much (most, perhaps) of the
credit for the 'arrangement of Ka
uai's beautiful float in the Flora!
parade is due to Hon. J. II. Coney.
Others helped with their ideas,
their time and their monc ; but,
Mr. Coney simply "camped" with j
the float here uid at Honolulu un
til it was niadeill it was intended i
to be. i

fine showing for the Garden Isle,

IIoxoi.ui.u is again squabbling
over the site for the purposed new
Federal building. It is not likely,
however, that Congress will any
longer pay attention to argument
one way or the other, f'r it has
long ago been apparent that the
people themselves are hopelessly
divided on the sit" subject. It is in
teresting lo recall that the govern
ment itself has never deviated from
its original purpose to locate the
building on the Maliuka site, and
that idea will doubtless be carried
Oxe of these days two autos will
crash together on the horse -shoe
bend below the postoffice, around
by theLihue mill. A prominent man
or two and perhaps women and
children, will be killed or serious
ly injured. Then there will arise
a great outcry for a straight road,
or bridge, or both, across the neck
of the shoe, to connect the tho
roughfare in a straight line, as it
JosF.i'ii A. Sen z. leader of Ihe
Lihue band, who is untiring in his
efforts to give this end of the is
land good music, was in Honolulu
last week and heard numerous

new ideas, w hich w ill be of pub

bands is a fine thing, and the pub

support Mr. Souza's efl'orls to keep
it up to date.
