Kinney, the new Superintendant

he desired to learn the exact posi

"School question. So far as the es
tat,!,!b.ment of such a school was
concerned, that matter was settled
by the law itself, which was man
datory. The questions upon which
he desired information were: 0)
Number of pupils likely to attend
the school; (2) Ages and grades
of such pupils; (3) What grades
of pupils should be accepted into
the school, if any, below the high
school grades, etc.
Discussion was long and was
participated in by most of those
It developed definitely that what
was wanted was a high school,
which, it was admitted, would
probably have to start with very
few pupils; but no one seemed to
have an definite information as
to the Approximate number that
could b e enrolled therein esti
mates varying from six to thirty

seemL d to be stoutly insisted up
on) was that the school be so ar

was admitted that if this conces
sion were granted, the attendance
would be quite large. It was evi
,1piiMv the idea, however, to so
arrange the matter that the grades
" below the eighth in the regular
' schools would not be drawn upon
' so heavily as to be crippled in the
flf To get over the last point, a tui
t tion fee of $3.00 per mouth for
other than high school pupils was
.n proposed. This seemed to strike
"everyone present favorably, and
the Superintendent admitted that
such a plan would be practicable.
: A motion to that effect was adopt-
eti( giving this plan as the views

Ant poison is not generally re
garded as a soothing medicine.
In iact, according to doctors who
have attended persons In their dis
tress after a dose of it, the effect is
much the opposite. But, anyhow,
that is what Doi, a Japanese fann
er living near the Half-Way Bridge,
between Lihue and Koloa, tried
last Tuesday evening to calm the
storm which raged in his soul.
Doe had found it necessary to take
some people to Koloa in his wagon,
and, for some unexplained reason,
returned home very mad about it.
What seemed to be a fit of des
pondency followed. II e, then,
turned to his faithful bottle and
drank about a pint of whiskey.
That did not have the desired effect,
and he drank nearly a bottle of
After that poor, old Doi did a
whole lot of things at once, among
them being to howl lustily for a
doctor. Dr. J. Yoshizawa, of Ko
loa, responded promptly to the
call, and finding the case a des
perate one, sent to Lihue for Dr.
Putman. When the latter arrived
the man was dead.
A coroner's inquiry was held
and a verdict of suicide rendered.
Prior to his death, Doi made the
statement that he took the ant poi
son deliberately, with Ihcintention
of committing suicide.

Governor was of the opinion that

to be used longer if necessary, but

to surrender or exchange the site
in case a change of location should

date. This view was heartily con
curied in bv all present.
The meeting was harmonious,
very definite in its conclusion's and
highly satisfactory. The rather
small attendance was regretted,
but as it was exceptionally repre
sentative the expressions brought
out wereconceded to indicate the
wishes of the entire community.

Kauai for a week, will return to

WITH TWO GOO
The battle for baseball suprema
cy of this island in 1914 is-on, and
from the start made it is plain
that the contest will be a very hard
one. Two opening games were
played Sunday-one between the
Lihues and Kawaihaus -at Kapaa
and the other between the Koloas
and McBrydes at Eleele. The for
mer was close and exciting; the
latter was one-sided in its results,
but there was some excellent play
ing on both sides. In the McBryde
Koloa game the contest was won
in the first innings, when the for
mer team piled up three runs. In
the third innings the Koloas went
ballooning, letting the McBrydes
in for seven runs.
M'BRYDK VS KOLOA
A large crowd of enthusiastic,
fans witnessed the defeat of the
Koloa team on the Eleele field by
the McBryde"holv terrors" . Except
for a northerly breeze, baseballers
could not have asked- for a better
day. W. O. Crowell was the um
pire, and his decisions seemed to
give verv general satisfaction.
As above stated, the game be
longed to McBryde from the first
inning. Although striving desper
ately to regain lost ground, the
Koloas were unable t o advance
very much and laileu utterly to
hold down their lusty and enthu

Koloa team, was decidedly off,

with striking out four men, but
gave six bases o n balls, which
proved very costly. As against that

catcher for the Koloa team, was
accidenlly spiked in the hand, nes
cessitating his retirement for treat

Joe Aka, the twirler for the vic
tors, proved very strong in the
box. In fact he seemed to have the
Koloas pretty much at his mercy.
Pacheco played a fine game at sec

third. Ako, at first, played a steady
gam:, while the sliding of himself
and Joe Costa to bases were features
of the day.
I. Akana, at center, intercepted
a long fly and by a drive to third
assisted a very pretty double play.
The teams were as follows:

VIEWS OE KAUA
"l do not care to comment on the
excellence o f Kauai's roads,"
said Tciritorial Treasurer Conk-
ling prior to his departure for Ho
nolulu last Saturday; "because
everybody does that and it is
pretty generally known anyhow
that your bad roads are better than
6urbest. I did notice, however, that
tne lanorers WUKK o n your
roads.' Coming up from Koloa I
saw a number of them working,
and they were working-not idling,
as is so common. At another
place I saw a laborer working
alone early in the morning. About
three hours later, I passed that
way again and found that he had
done about as mucji actual work on
the road as the average Honolulu
road laborer does in two days. And,.
mind you, that man was working
alone, he did not have a $5 a day
