tlic Island is yours. Take what
ever you want; but leave us our
climate. You haven't any use for
it. and we have, Mr. President
the Island is yours!"
After this usual Ad Club style,
the speaker was interrupted at
frequent intervals with tumul
tous applause and nothing but
the ready wit and resonant voice
of the speaker kept him on deck.
In response the President, W.
R. Farrington, expressed the grate
ful appreciation of the Ad Club
for the freedom thus extended
them, large d r a u g h t s of which
they had already enjoyed. lie
then went on to outline some of
the aims and purposes of the Ad
Club. It wasn't by any means
all "beer and skittles." Behind
and beneath all the noise and fuss,
there was an earnest and difinite
purpose to improve the conditions
of life and prosperity in Hawaii.
The acordinal plant of the Ad
Club's platform is optimism. If
sugar goes to the wall we are not go
ing to hang our harps on the willow
tree, and sit down and weep, we
are going to look for some other
means of income and build up
some other paying industry. We
believe in ourselves, and in our
ability and well endeavor to do
whatever needs to be done for the
good of the community. We
stand ready to put our shoulders
to the wheel, wherever positive,
helpful work is needed, rather
than adverse criticism and knock
ing. No worthy cause, however
diverse, lies beyond the range of
our consideration, and our success
ful activities run from raising
$30,000 in one day to finance the
Mid -Pacific Carnival, down to
singing good Ad Club Carols at
Most important of all we pull
together. In all communities
there is more or less of the spirit
which found expression when a
certain well known Honolulu man
asked for 10 worth of dog-meat,
the butcher replied "Shall I
it ud. or will you eat it here?" in
dicating strained relations, and a
thinly veiled spirit of bitterness.
iNow, any such spirit is fatal to
community peace and community
We believe, also, in the higher
and better things of life.
Mr Farrington then called on the
governor, who dodge the showers
dodged the day when so many
other people got wet, he hoped it
was going to be prophetic of his
four years of official life
He recalled his former know
ledge of the Island, some dozon
years ago and congratulated Kauai

but if, as many fear we stand on
the threshold of a new condition
of things and must face a period
of depression which will call for
economy, and even sacrifice. I
have faith to believe that it will
do us good, and minister to our
ultimate prosperity. In this con
nection I would like to assure you
that it will be the policy of the
government to get along with what
we have, and will endeavor to
remember the needs and interests
o f your Island along with Ho
nolulu and the other islands.
When the applause subsided Mr.
Lydgate proposed three cheers" for
the governor of all Hawaii" which
were given with a will.
At this juncture t h e lights
suddenly went out for the introduc
tion of "the goat" which, after a
great deal of resonant kicking on
the veranda, and the assent by
proxy to a searching examination,
was finally accepted as a new
member of the Ad Club, in the
person of Sheriff Rice, who express
ed his relief at his easy wav out,
and his sympathy with the calves
that had lost there day's portion
for the benefit of the Ad Club.

On To Hanalei
At the "chowder" it was made
known that the overland route to
Hanalei had been abandoned, and
President Farrington extended the
pre-arranged invitation to Kauai
people to accompany the Ad Club
on the Mauna Loa around to the
next point of festivities.
In accordance therewith, the
excursion steamer sailed at 8:30
Sunday morning and upon arrival
at Hanalei the excursionists found
that a fine spread was already
laid out for them in the Hawaiian
church. The place was beauti
fully decorated with lilies, other
flowers, palms and ferns. Every
body was hungry, and a quick dive
was made for the estables, which
abounded. Music was supplied by
t h e Ilaaalei string band. The
committee which handled things so
admirably were Manager V. F.'
Sanborn, of Princeville Plantation:
l Supervisor Meuefoglio and Mrs.
'S II. lyeverill, proprietress of the
j Hamlet Hotel.
I Mr. Meuefoglio made the ad
dress of welcome, and was replied
to by President Farrington, of th
Ad Club. Practically all the prin
cipal people of Hanalei and Kil
uea were present.
Chas. R. Frazier and C. B. Cot.
trel, who had gone overland, hast
ily formed what they called a
"Hanalei Ad Club" and gave the
steamer party quite a rousing wel
come upon arrival.

J. H. Coney, W. H. Rice Jr.,
Chas. A. Rice, Philip L. Rice and

Katheriue Mclutyre, Miss Lottie

Around To Waimea
From Hanalei the steamer sailed

the island to Waimea, where the

well whistle and departed fqr Honolulu.
San Diego, Cal, Rear Admiral
Robert S. Griffin, chief of the
bureau of construction, Washing
ton, D. C, announces that the
navy department has changed its
proposals of establishing a chain
of wireless stations to complete
radio communication between the
national capital and Manila. Wire
less stations at Guam and Samoa
are to be eliminated and high
power stations will be erected at
San Diego, Panama, Honolulu and
Manila, the Union announces.
The station on the isthmus,
which will be located at Darien,
will be completed about Jan. 1,
1915, according to the present
plans. Recent experiments at the
Arlington radio station, opposite
Washington, showed that it was
able to pick up messages sent from
a Poulsen set o f radio instru
ments at Honolulu. The Poulsen
station on top of the U. S. Grant
hotel during the last seven months
has established daylight communi
cation with stations on the gulf of
As the radio operators at Point
Loma nightly converse with the
station at Arlington, the powerful
new station that will soon be built
at Chollos Heights should be able
to communicate direct with Manila,
sav naval experts. Thev point out
that when the San Diego and Ma
nila stations are completed a mes
sage can be dispatched from Wash
ingtbn and relayed via San Diego
to Manila within 30 seconds after
the local operator has acknowledg
ed the massage from the capital.
San Diego is also to be the dis
tributing point of all official mes
sages destined not only for the
Hawaiian and Philippine islands,
but also for all points in Alaska
and as far south a s Panama.
From Panama to Magellan straits
the Darien station will flash the
messages t o American warships
Commander Clelland Davis, who
has been ordered to San Diego to
superv' e the construction of the
power i dio plant, is expected
here soon from the east.

Honolulu tailor is here, soliciting

colors and flowers.
