Information arrived here Friday
morning (the dav after the meet
ing of the Kauai Chamber of Com
merce) that the appropriations for
both the Nawiliwili and Kahului
harbors had been left out of the
bill in Congress by the committee
on rivers and harbors: However,
the resolutions passed by th - local
Chamber will g o forward, and
every effort will be made to rein
state the item. The letter in regard
to Nawiliwili is from John R. Ee-
sha. secretary to Delegate Kuhio,
is dated February 28 and reads as
"I am taking this opportunity
to inform you that the Rivers and
Harbors Committee of the House
of Representatives has seen fit to
leave out Nawiliwili Harbor from
the bill which was reported the
other day. The Committee adopted
the policy of considering only old
matter at this session, and ignor
ing new projects'such as the Nawi
"However, we are hoping that
at the next session, the Nawiliwili
fj project will be considered. In the
meantime, I would urge that all
possible data which might be of
help be forwarded to this office."
The transportation committees,
which are anauging for transport
ing the Ad. Club party around
most of Kauai, have buckled down
t o hard work. Some of the
machines offered for use on the
Waimea side will also be kept
through to Haualei, while most of
the Lihue machines will be in the
run from the start at the Waimea
landing, through to the end. This
arrangement will greatly facilitate
matters. It is calculated that the
party of 72 will be swelled by the
local committees to 12, so that
at least fortv machines will be re
quired, in addition to which there
will be 'trouble" cars, commis
snrv nutos. butfunue auto bus, etc,
The committees ( 1. llrandt. ot

cess in enlisting midlines, but are
anxious for more volunteers.

NAB JAIL BREAKER
A Filipino prisoner named Ma
riano, who was serving a hold-over
period for jail-breaking and inci
dentally awaiting trail on another
charge, escaped from Lihue jail
last Thursday and succeeded in
making a complete get-away to
the other end of the island. He
was picked up yesterday near Wai
mea, and will be returned by De
puty Sheriff Crowell tomorrow to
Sherilf Rice, at Lihue.
It appears that two Filipino offi
cers sent over from Lihue got track
of the. man, and after considerable
searching found him in the cane
field near Camp 2.
Moriana is more or less of an old
jail-bird. He was serving a term
for larceny, and escaped, and is
now serving additional time for

search was made around Lihue foi
him, but no trace could be found.
Sheriff Rice instructed all of his
deputies to be on the look-o.it,
with the result above noted.
Bull Moosers Appear
The Progressive Party is out with
its proposed rules, and the scheme
outlined is unique in that it brings
the business of the party right
down to the precinct, almost all
the way through. The convention
plan is abolished absolutely, and
the territorial committee is named
by the precinct clubs in accordance
with an election scheme which is
outlined. The platform is to be
drawn by the territorial central
committee, but must be submitted
to be voted upon. Te territorial
crimmittee is given certain powers
in the, matter of amending rules, but
as a general proposition that body
seems to be a sort ot clerical board
run bv the precincts.
Coffee Shop Robbed
A burglar entered the Lihue
Coffee Shop, back of the Lihue
Store, sometime Thursday night
and took away a lot of canned
goods, some cigars and a few cents
from the cash register. The thief
entered through a back window.
The sheriff has no clue upon which
to work, but he has suspicions
which are being followed up.
The fre'ghter Hilonian, which
s.tileci ten ('njs'or so ago from Port
Allen for Honolulu and Hilo, ran
aground at f lie latter place and
w.'is probablv saved from serious
damage by three smaller steamers
which went to her rescue. The is
land craft pulled the big vessel off
the rocks after several hours of
tugging. It was claimed that a
buoy had been shifted sixty feet
in the harbor, and the captain ot
the Hilonian not notified, which
accounted for the accident.
