It would be an excellent tiling
if arrangements could be made for
the establishment throughout the
Territory of night schools for the
lientfit of l.ys above the scVoo)
age who have to work during the
da . In the country communities,
more particularly, are numerous
such loys, who now fritter away
valuable evening hours and who
stand much in need of just such
training as the night school would
give. This is one object for which
an increase in the school tax would
probably not te objected to very
seriously, once the ned for it is
clearly understood bv the public.
The people around Homesteads

to raise money for a public ball.
At most other places of any size
on Kauai such halls have been
provided by the plantations or by
wealthy people. At the Homesteads
the "small farmers" musl battle
it out alone. They intend to try to
raise the necessary money b
means of a series of entertain
ments, and it is to be hoped that

It is reported that pineapple
men at Honolulu have for some
time been button-holing prospec

hinted at but not disclosed. Can

this unusual activity of Oahu pine
tp'ple men and the recent grand
stand playing of the land board at
Honolulu in regard to the Kapaa
cannerv site? The "smell" of the
two evils is remarkably similar!
The M atn a I-c-a, bearing the

card if Rev. J. M. Lydgate, or
someone else equally well inform
ed, could I detailed to accompany
our departing guests on that sec
tion of the excursion, in order
that unusual sights cn the north
and west sides of the island might

them. It is certain that our visitors
would ap-preciate this additional
courtesy very much.
The AeNNOTN cement that Ewa
plantation will continue paying
monthly dividends of one pier cent
this vear reauires some explana-
$40 a ton. The promise now is to
cut down the cost of j'roduction to
$33 to f 54 a ton. Of course few
other plantations in the gToup could

and most other sugar companies.
