.Says Essence Of Problem
To Get Factory Work
President Rohrig, of the Kauai
Chamber of Commerce, has decid
ed to give out for publication let
ters received from Governor Pink
ham and Mr. R. H. Trent, the
latter of the Land Board in order
that members of the Chamber and
the public may be able to follow
everv detail of developments in the
Kapaa cannery matter. The letters
both refer to the resolutions intro
duced by Mr. E. II. W. Broadbent,
at the Waimea meeting of the
Chamber, urging that not more than
ten acres of laud be deeded to the
company for cannery purposes at
SI per, acre, and that 15 acres
additional in the neighborhood be
cut up into house lots and sold (the
assumption being that they would
be acquired by laborers in the can
uery.) A clause in the resolutions
requested action by the govern
ment in the matter of securing a
railroad to a section of the home
stead lines, and is referred to by
the governor in his two concluding
paragraphs. The letter of the
Governor, dated March 16, is as

there is an abundance of land ad

MR. TRENT'S LETTER.
Under date of March 17, Mr.
Trent wrote as follows:
"I thank you for your favor of
March loth, enclosing a copy of
resolutions passed by your body
with reference to the matter of a
pineapple cannery site at Kapaa.
"So far as I know, there has
never been any opposition before
the Land Board to the granting of
a site not to exceed 10 acres in
C area. At any rate, the application
of the Hawaiian Canners Co. for
a tract of approximately 19 acres
has been approved bv the Land
Board, so that the object of your
resolution has already been ac
complished. "With my kind regards and best
.wishes, I am,
" Richard II . Trent."

AD CLUB DINNER
Representatives of several com
mittees on entertainment of the
Honolulu Ad Club held a meeting
with members of the General Com
mittee in the office of President
Rohrig, Lihue, at 9:30 yesterday
morning, and put the final touches
on a large number' of matters of
It. developed in the meeting that
most of the committeemen will go
to Waimea Friday evening, so as
to be on hand when the excursion
steamer arrives at 6:30 the next
The plan in regard to the place
cf having the "chowder," in Li
hue, Saturday night was changed
around again, and Lihue Social
Hall was finally selected for both
banquet and reception. It had been
previously agreed to have t h e
chowder in Hale Hooui, but after
looking through the theater the
coimnitee decided against that
plan. So both "chowder" and pub
lic reception will be pulled off in
the Social Hall.
RECEPTION AT WAIMEA
The committees desirethat there
be a big t urn-out to receive the
excursion party a t Waimea, at
6:30 Saturday morning. They feel
that "first impressions" is an im
portant factor, nnd that the re
ception at the landing should be a
large and enthusiastic affair. Many
Lihue people will motr across the
island Friday evening and carlr
Saturday morning to be present,
and others will go from Koloa,
McBryde, Eleele, etc. Much, how
ever, will depend upon the Wai
,jmjaNpeopJp themseV ana' the I
committees Tidpe that the whole
town, as well a s everybody in
neighboring places, will be there
to help swell the crowd and lend
eclat to the reception.
AS TO MUSIC
To assist the idea of a big wel
come at Waimea, Mr. T. Brandt
has consented to use his best ef
forts in securing the services of
the Waimea band. That will be a
great help. At Honolulu the Ad
Club will be accompanied to the
steamer and played off by the Ha
waiian band, and a stunt of the
same sore at Waimea with which
to icceive the partv will be exact
ly in keeping with the occasio.i.
For ihe luncheon at the McBryde
beach house, Mr.r. D. McBryde
has engaged the services of an ex
cellent stringed orchestra. -
At Lihue the music will also be
of the string variety, here and at
Lawai it being necessary to have
the music at too close range for

date of the members of the Honolulu Ad Club's party expected to land at Waimea next

find it impossible, at the last, to make the trip. The name of Mr. R. H. Trent does not ap
pear in the list, and one or two names of representatives from the island of Hawaii could not

ARE SENT TO JAIL
A gang of Filipinos who have
been engaged in the unusual occu
pation of stealing clothes from dry
ing lines in and around Makaweli
and Hanapepe for a week or two,
were nabbed by the Waimea police
on Friday. Annigned in the dis
trict court, two were sentenced to
imprisonment for one year each
for larceny; one to four months for
larceny; one to twelve months for
vagrancy, and the fifth man, on
account of lack of direct evidence,
was permitted to go free.
Complaints began to come in
fiist from Makaweli, and then shift
ed to Hanapepe. The climax was
reached when the conscienceless
miscreants stole the best Sunday
shirts of the devout pastor of tin'
native church of Hanapepe from
his perfectly good clothes line.
Some of thesentences were quite
heavy, but were in line with the
policy of Judge Hofgaard. who is
trying very hard to break up petty"
