H - J.
The second meeting of the Kau
ai Historical Society was held in
the Lihue Library Friday evening,
the attendance being quite large
aud enthusiasm much in evidence.
No set program had been planned,
it being understood that the meet
ing was' for the purpose of perfect
ing organization. As a matter of
fact, however, several interesting
features developed extemporane
ously. President . W. H. Rice Sr.. was
in the chair and Miss Wilcox offi
ciated as secretary . Quite a few
signed the roll a s new, charter
members, paying, at the same
time, theannual fee of $1.
At the last meeting it had been
voted that the character roll be
kept open only until May 22. It
developed, however, that quite a
number who had signified their
intention of ioining had not yet
signed the roll and we re unavoid
ahlv detained from the meeting
fin that account Mr. Chas. A. Rice
moved that the charter roll be
lipid onen until July 1. a motion
which carried by unanimous vote,
Rev. T. M. Lydgate, for the pro
gram committee, reported a long
list of subjects which the committee
recommended for the consideration
of the society. There were enough
Jtuihieets in the lot. per'iaps, to
'supply programs for a year. The
committee recommended that the
society take up first the subject of
the wreck of the Saginaw, on na
nalei. manv vears ago.
Attention was called to the fact
that several members of the soci

the Russians had abandoned it,
leaving many of their strange, old
weapons and uniforms behind.
Mrs. W. H. Rice, Sr. , also offer
ed, as a matter of general interest,
a letter written by a missionary in
the South Seas in 1828 to a friend
here, which was read by Miss Mc
Intyre and passed around for ex
amination. Mr. Lydgate read a letter from
George R. Carter in reference to

readings from the psalter, and a
short address by Rev J. M. Lyd

significance and importance o f
spiritual interests and commended
the wisdom of gathering about the
graves of our beloved dead, to re
mind ourselves of the nearness of

There were manv enthusiastic

local interest at latest accounts was
the appointment of H. H. Brodie
to succeed himself as supervising
principal on this island.
C. W. Ashford appeared before
the commissioners aud strenuously
objected to the re - appointment of
Edgar Wood as principal ot the
normal school. He made sensation-
charges of incompetency and
boorishness. T h e commissioners
took the matter under advisement.

Supcrintenclent Kinney read an
opiniqn by former Attorney-Gener
Alex. Linds'av, in which it was
stated in general that the plan of a
select school' attachment to the
high school, with a tuition fee for
extra expenses, was within the
law. Writing under date, of May
20, Superinteudant Kinney says
further of this matter:

I have decided to issue no more
Hawaiian birth certificates until
such time as I am able to make
arrangements with the immigra
tion officials whereby greater in

cates issued by this olhce.

that unscrupulous persons in the
different islands have been going
about the country making the
statement that they were authoriz

for birth certificates, and that the
certificates, when issued, would

A Coming Event
Owing to the fact that the funds
in the hands of The Department
of Public Instruction will not be
suffiqent to provide the necessary
working materials for the schools,
the Lihue teachers have under
taken a sale ot plain dresses,
under - clothing and fancy work
done by the pupils
There will also be various fancv
articles donated by the teachers
and friends in Lihue. Candy,
cake, ice cream, soda water and
flowers will be sold on the grounds.
One feature of the sale will be a
second hand clothing table, at
which bargains may be expected.
Fmtiier notices of the sale, with
date, will be given later.
Last Sunday being the day for
intenng the remains of the late
Empress Dowager, in Tokyo, ser
vices were held in all the Japanese
churches and schools of the island
in memory of the
of the country."
The Lihue Plantation Japanese
Sunday school, Japanese Christian
church and the Japanese Buddhist
mission, at kapaia, were the cen-
ters of big gatherings; but the at
tendance at tlie latter was much
the largest, the school grounds be
ing a surging mass of men, women
and children. Thev came from every
quarter of the neighboring planta-
Hons, and more than 600 crowded
into the school house adjoining
At the front of the interior of
the' school building was a large
framed picture of the late Empress
Dowager, beautifully decorated
with Hawaiian leis. Palms on either
side of the platform added much to
the beauty of the scene,
The ceremonv began with a
mournful chorus sung by school
girls, and proceeded with an air of
great solemnity. Rev. Miyasaki
read the paper of the day, and was
followed by Mr. lsunoda, of the
Y. M. B. A., who made a highly
interesting and appropriate address
that emphasized the three cardinal
virtues of female character filial
piety, constancy and loving kind
ness as exeiuplied in the life of
the late Empress Dowager.
A big "blow out" was given bv
gentlemen of Makaweli Friday
evening in honor of, and as a fare
well to, Dr. Carl Keller, who has
been acting physician at that place
for the past ten months in place of
Dr. West. A fine spread and all the
features that go to make up a
pleasant evening for mere man
were fully in evidence.
Among those present at the affair
were: Dr. Keller, Manager ii. u.

Win, Schultze, Franz Bayer, Guy,
Rankin, W. G. Cunningham, H.
Reichelt, George Bertram, G. H.

Dr. Keller left by the steamer
Kinau Saturday afternoon for Ho
nolulu, where he will be located,
at least. While on
Kauai he made many friends, by
virtue of his amiable disposition
and sterling qualities; and his de
parture is generally regretted.
