Select School Property Turned
Over And Plans For Funds
, The public meeting at the Lihue
Library Friday evening to act tip
on certain details of arrangements
for starting the Kauai High And
Grammar School resolved itself al
so, by previous arrangement, into
meeting of the patrons of the Li
tuic Select School, who were pres
ent in force at.d were principally
interested in the business of the
evening. Rev. . M. Lvdgate,
chairman of the dormitory commit
The first discussion was on the
matter of the thin' 'or lower
grade) teacher for ine school, the
salary of whom is to be paid by the
E apartment of Education out of
fuyds supplied byil.-i treasurer of
the Kauai committee from tuition
collections. On m.Jon of W. H.
Rice Jr., it was voted that "fhe

vised that it is the sence of this
meeting of prospective patrons of
t4'e Kauai High And Grammar
School that the matter of the se
lection and appointment of a good,
experienced teacher for the lower
grades in the school be left entire
ly to it; and that patrons of the
school will pay whatever salary

' H. Rice, Jr., was unani-
i mously elected treasurer ol the
general standing committee, his
duty being to collect assessments
from patrons of the lower grade
in the school and turn the amounts
required for teachers' salaries orgr
to the Department. He will serve
for one year.
Next came the features in which
the patrons of the present Select
School were most directly concern
ed. It had to do with the furnish
ings, including desks, piano,
maps, library, etc., of the Select
School. After considerable discus
sion, it was voted unanimously to
turn all of this equipment over to
vihe n e w High And Grammai
School, with the understanding
that the authorities in charge of
the new Institution might purchase
the same after a year or so, if they
felt disposed. All of this equip
ment is new, modern and will un
doubtedly be of great assistance to
the High And Grammar School
during its first year.
It was also decided to turn over
in the same way all tii'e furniture
in the teacher's cottage belonging
to the Select School, which solved
any problem which the new prin
cipal of the High And Grammar
School might be threatened with
in this particular.
Going back again to committee
business, the question of the num
ber of pupils likely to come from
the outside districts was taken up,
but in the absence of Mr. Brodie,
of the outside pupils committee, a
detailed report was not available.
The committee was instructed to
take the matter up with parents
find complete definite boarding ar
rangements in Lihue, or adopt
such other plans as might be found
The meeting was one o f the
shortest on record, lasting scarcely
more than an hour, but a great
deal of business was definitely dis
posed of, as the above outline will

THE LIQUOR BOARD
The Kauai board of liquor li
cense commissioners held its annual
meeting in Lihue last Thursday
morning, and granted all the ap
plications for renewal brought be
fore it. Those present were: Pre
sident VV. H. Rice, Sr., Secretary
W. D. McBryde, B. D. Baldwin,
G. N. Wilcox and J. R. Myers, to
gether with the various applicants
for continuation of saloon
The onlv discussion of impor
tance was upon the old regulation
forbidding soliciting. Mr. Mc
Bryde took the stand that the re
gulation was a dead letter. Each
liquor dealer of the island was con
stantly accusing some other of so
liciting, when, as a matter of fact,
it seemed fairly certain that all
were breaking the regulation, more
or less. Statements to that effect
had been made before the board a
year ago. and the speaker was not
aware that any improvement had
been made since.
Blind pigs were flourishing, and
were made possible by the corrup
tion incident to illicit soliciting.
The speaker was the father of
the idea in the first place, but he
had become convinced that it was
a dead letter and he was opposed
to carrying it any farther.
The board, however, seemed dis
inclined to drop tke. regulation,
other members venturing the opin
ion that it was a check, and to that
extent was of some value. On a
show of hands Mr. McBryde alone
voted for striking out the regula
tion; Messrs. Baldwin, Wilcox
and Myers voted against, while the
chairman (his vote not being re
quired) remained silent.
Following were the licenses re
newed b y the board: Waimea
Wine Co., Waimea; S. Ozaki,
Waimea; J. I. Silva, Hanapepe;
C. W. Spitz, Nawiliwili; Souza &
Fernandez, Kapaia; Kapaa Wine

The day was ideal for the great,

to make it bracingly cool, but not
so heavy as to interfere with play

matched that neither of the con
tests was decided until it was play

been expected, the McBryde - Ka

The game between the McBrydes

grounds, for the championship of
the series was probably the hottest
of the year. Pitcher Aka, of the

times, allowing six passes and hit

Just after the baseball game at
Kapaa had ended Sunday after
noon, quite a little excitement was
created by a horse belonging to
Manuel Ornellas. The animal had
been tied to a telephone pole.
When the crowd started to break
up, he began to prance, pulled the
pole down and a great many things
happened at once. In falling the
pole and wires struck across the
back of the horse, which started to
run with it toward the crowd.
There was a lively scamper to
keep out of the way, and although
several people escaped narrowly no
one was hurt.
Two of the wires were broken
loose from the pole and the tele
phones on that side put out of
commission until the "trouble"
men reached the scene.
Although struck by the heavy
pule across the back and becoming
entangled in the wires, the horse
escaped anything like serious in
