TOURS SCHOOLS OF KAUAI
Henry Walsworth Kinney, the
new Superintendent of Education, ,
landed from the Kinau at Port
Allen last Wednesday morning
and in the period betweenlthen and
his departure from Nawiliwili Sa
turday afternoon v'sited every
school on the island and finished tip
great many routine matters per
to the work of his department.
The Superintendent was met at
Port Allen by II. II. Brodie, super
vising principal ot the Kauai
schools, and taken to the latter's
home in Hanppene for breakfast.
From there an early start was
made for the schools at Mana and
Kek;iha. both of which were
thoroughly inspected; and just be
fore the noon hour the Waimea
school was gone through, A short
call was made by the Superinten
dent at the neihhoring residence
of Principal and Mrs, Brown, after
which the visitors met Commission
er T. Brandt and adjourned to
that gentleman's residence for
Taking an early start in the af
ternoon, Messrs. Brodie and Kin
ney were joined by Territorial
Treasurer Conkling and made
thorough inspections of the big
schools at Makaweli and Eleele
tlie latter holding an hour later in
the afternoon for the convenience
of the officiais. Mr. Conkling was
taken to Mr. Farley's, at Koloa,
for the night, and Mesrs. Brodie
and Kinney returned to the resi
dence of the former in Hanapepe.
On the way back the Superinten
dent vas shown through the Lawai
cannery, Kukuilono park, Mc
Bryde mill' etc.
The first call next morning was
made at the model school of Miss
McClymont, Kalaheo, and from
there the party hurried along to
the big eight-grade school at Ko
loa. The next call was at the Hu
leia school, where, owing t o a
lack of sufficient teachers, two
sessions are held daily,
Arriving at Lihue, the Superin
tendent and Supervising Principal
made a thorough ins; ection of Li
hue school and found everything
in most excellent order. After
luncheon at the Fairview, a visit
was made to the Ilananiaulu
school, and, later, in company
with Chairman Wishard, of the i
Board of Supervisors, the site of
the proposed new high school was
inspected. At night the meeting
at the Fairview, elsewhere repor
ted, on the subject of the new
high school, was held.
Spending the night at the Fair-
view, the officials got anearlv start
Friday morning for the Hanalei
side, stopping first at the Wailua
school and then proceeding to the

Willet & Gray have the follow

European advices show no pros
pect of decreased beet crops to
help the market prices upward;
on the contrary, the sowings for
France show only a small decrease,
while Germany, Austria and other
Continental countries show small
decreases. Russia is exceptional in
a nine per cent increase. The av

five per cent. The weather is favor

supplies of sugar and low prices

world, all which will likely 1

Married In Honolulu
I Miss Elizabeth K. Kaeo and
j Samuel K. Ferrera were married
in Honolulu on the evening of
May 4, Rev. Akaiko Akana ofliciat
jing. The bride is a daughter of
County Attorney Kaeo, of Nawiliwili.
Kapaa. From there they proceeded
on, inspecting all of the schools to
Hanalei, where the night wasspent.
By previous arrangement, the Ilae
na school was in operation Saturday
morning, so that the superinten
dent had a chanceto see this, the
very last one on Kauai, in action.
A hurried trip was made to the
Hacna caves and Wainiha power
house, after which the officials
made a flying return to Lihue in
time to get Mr. Kinney abroad the
Kinau for Honolulu.
In general, Mr. Kinnev express
ed himself as highly pleased with
the school work as it is being
carried on Kauai. In fact, although
unfamiliar with the details of con
ditions in other localities, he seem
ed inclined to the opinion that in
common school work Kauai rather
leads the way. He was favorably
impressed with the open-air school
room idea used on this island, and
intends to seek its adoption for
use on the other islands.
Excellent weathtr favored the
Superintendent the first two clays
of his tour, but on the Hanalei
side showers interfered slightly
with the pleasure of the trip. As a
whole, however, he expressed
himself as having had a most en
joyable time, and feeling that the
tour had been prolific of infonna
tion which would be of great and
immediate value to his deoartnicnt
mid to this island, This was his
first visit to Kauai
Mr. Kinney, the new superin
tendent, was born on the island of
Maui, his father being American
and his mother Danish-both teach
ers. The superintendent himself
was educated at the University of
California and the University of
Copenhagen, and speaks Danish,
German and several other langu
ages. Being an experienced newspaper
man, Mr. Kinney took complete
notes o f everv school building,
grounds, teacher and collection of
pupils, unusual conditicn, etc., on
Kauai. These notes will be extend
ed in a book, upon his return to
Honolulu, which will become an
invaluable "ready-reference" on
the subject of Kauai school condi
tions for his future use. To his
fund of notes, Mr, Kinney will
add, as quickly as possible (and
include in his "ready reference")
pictures of every school building
(inside and out) and school
grounds on the island.
Kauai has had the benefit of the
first tour the superintendent has
made since assuming office, and
the tour has been quite opportune,
for the reason that it comes imme-
diately prior to the annual meet
ing of the Commissioners in Hono
lulu for the adjustment of school
matters for the next year.

Makaweli Higher Still
It is stateil that the credit in last
week's paper, indicating that Ma
kaweli's sugar output would be
2,500 tons above the estimate, was
below corrected figures to date. Ma
kaweli 's showing this year will be
something remarkable, due to un
usually favorable weather condi
tions. Some fields will run nearly
one-third over estimates.
Bonine Is Coming

grapher of Honolulu, will shortly

Mr. Lydgates Services
Rev. Mr. Lydgate preached in
Lihue Union church Sunday
morning, and Sunday afternoon
in company with Judge Dole,
went to Koloa where services were
held. It wss the intention to
have services Sunday night in
Eleele hall, but when the minister
arrived there it was to find that
the electric plant had an accident
so that there was no light.
Senator E. A. Knudsen writes
that his plan is to leave Berlin
May 11 for New York. He will
travel 'across the States by easy
stages, and arrive home a few
weeks later. I n Germany Mr.
Knudsen has done some valuable
work in the way of creating a de
mand for Hawaiian pineapples.
An Extra Mail
A mail for the south side of the
island was brought to Port Allen
by the Honolulan Sunday morning
Postmaster Silva, of Eleele, tele
phoned notice that the mail was
there, and Sheriff Rice, who was
in the neighborhood, thoughtfully
picked up t lie seven bags for Li
hue and brought them over.
Minatoya, a Japanese ronian
living at Kapaa, died last Tues
day evening as a result of drinking
ant poison. The case was one of
suicide, but the causes which led
up to it are not well understood.
The poison was taken on April
1, the woman apparently choosing
All Fool's Day for her stunt. She
lingered on between life and death,
and suffered a great deal. A Japa
nese doctor was at first called in,
but afterward the assistance of Dr.
Hoffman was enlisted-too late,
however, to save the woman's life.
The case was a peculiar one, in
that no definite cause for the rash
act was established.
It was at first suspected that this
case of nut-poison suicide inspired
the s cond, that of Doi, near Ko
loa, reported elsewhere in this is
sue, hut efforts to establish a con
necting link have failed.
Superintendent Kinney decided
while over here that another new,
open-air bungalow should be sup
plied to Koloa school, to relieve
the crowded conditions existing
The new cottage will likelv oc
cupy the space on the street side of
the present large building, near
the trees close to the court-house
. It is hardly likely, however,
that the building will be erected be
fore the summer vacation begins.
The Mid-Pacific Magazine for
the month of June has been issued,
and is an unusually attractive and
inttresting n u in b e r. "Raising
Sugar on Kauai" is the subject of
one of the leading articles. It is
by C. D. Wright, and is illustrat
ed. There are other Kauai views
in the number.
A. C. Wheeler, civil engineer of
the Department of Public Works,
was a visitor at the Waipouli and
Kalaheo homesteads during last
week. His visit was for the pur
pose of inspecting the water
system extensions which are le
ing (and will be) put in at both
places. He returned to the city
The Garden Spot
Writing from Pittsburg to the
editor of The Garden Island,
James J. Davis, Director-General
of the Loyal Order of Moose, says:
"In conclusion let me say that I
think the II?waiian Islands the
garden spot of the world".
