Attorney C. H. Olsen. of Hono
lulu who came up on the W. G.
Hall Friday morning for the spe
al purpose at addressing the
Chamber of Commerce a n d its
guests at the banquet Saturday
evening, met with a most unfortu
nate accident Friday evening as a
result of which he was obliged to
return to the city by the Kinau,
v'thout accomplishing the purpose
of his mission.
Mr. Olsen, with W. II. Rice,
Jr., and others, were returning in
an automoble from a meeting held
at Kapaa, where the attorney had
made a speech. Between Lihue and
Nawiliwili they discovered that the
cane-field was afire, and, so far as
they could see from the road, no
one was around to fight the flames.
Mr. Rice's idea was to get to a tele
phone and send in an alarm. Mr.
Olsen, however, got out of the
machine and started to walk down
the railway track toward the fire,
to ascertain definitely if fire-fighters
Across the railway track a few
feet from the road is a wide cattle
guard, which could not be seen
in the darkness. Mr. Olsen evi
ctejjtly made a few steps over the
grlard on the ties of the track, and
then stepped between the ties.
The fall he sustained was a very
heavy one, being across tbe rail,
his head striking the loose rocks of
the stone wall which had been cut
away at the time the railway put
track was through.
i The attorney arose with diffi
culty, realiziug that he was hurt,
and hi9 companions rushed to his
It was found that Mr. Olsen was
suffering and bleeding from a long
cut across the upper part of the
neck beneath the chin, and pains
on legs and other parts of the body
indicated severe bruises.
Medical attention was obtained
quickly. It was found necessary
to put seven stitches in the cut
beneath the chin, and to make
other "repairs". The attorney's
gums and teeth were lacerated and
jarred, and rendered very painful,
so much so that talking in the or
dinary way, was made difficult.
Mr. Olsen's plans were to ad
dress the Chamber of Commerce
Saturday evening and then remain
"wlxr to Tuesday afternoon, when
Vie would have returned to the city
The accident, however, made all
that impossible, much to the dis
appointment of his friends and all
of the gentlemen who attended tne
At the meeting of the Chamber
of Commerce on June 11, Mr
Charles A. Rice requested the rriv
ilegc of addressing tne Doay
after the business of the Chamber
to be held on August 15. The re
quest was at I hat time granted by
a unanimous vote. It turned out,
however, that Mr. Rice could not
be nresent. having another urgent
call to the island ot Maui; and he
requested Mr. Olsen to appear and
address the Chamber in his stead
That is the business which brought
the latter to Kauai.
Mr. Olsen belongs to the law firm
of Holmes, Stanley & Olsen, and
is a young attorney of marked abi
titles and oratorical powers.

OF COMBE MEN
A BAD CORNER
THE BIG BANQUET
AT THE FAIRVIEW
Quite the largest and most en
thusiastic gathering in the history
of the Kauai Chamber of Commerce
assembled in the dining hall of the
Fairview Hotel Saturday evening
for the first annual banquet of the
organization. The table was in
the shape of a huge "f ", and was
tasteflly 'decorated with flowers.
Prof. Wniau's orchestra supplied
music in a very acceptable man
ner. The music started aft w
minutes after 7 and the program
came to a close about 10 o'clock.
Dr. F. L. Putnian, the newly
elected piesideiit of the Chamber,
efficiently officiated as toastniaster.
He began by stating the purpose
of the banquet, welcoming the
members and their guests and ex-,
plaining the absence of Mr. C. H.
Olsen, who was to have delivered
the principal address of the even
ing. The speeches wore many, but all
short, and some quite humerotis.
Senator Kuudsen opened up with
quite an interesting, short account
of his recent travels through the
present war zone in Europe. Mr.
Brodie took as his subject "Mv
opinion of the outlook for the pine
appla business on Kauai", inter
spersing his remarks with several
very fine anecdotes. Mr. W. C.
Avery, the new principal of the
High School, talked very interest
ingly for five-nit nutes of the plans
for the institution.
A feature of the evening was re
sponses for various towns of the
island, most of them of a lnunerous
character. Mr. S. E. Haunestad
responded for Lihue; Mr. James K.
Kula, for Koloa; Mr. W. D. Mc-Brvde-,
for. Homestead; Mr. R. L--Hughes,
for Eleele; Mr. H. H. Bro
die, for Hanapepe; Mr. Ranken,
for Makaweli; Judge C. B. Hof
g.iard, tor Waimea, Senator Kuud
sen, for Kekal.a, and Mr. Gaylord
Wilcox, for Kealia and Kapaa.
Judge L. A. Dickey responded for
the conns; Hon. j. H. Coney, for
the Legislature; Chairman II. D.
Wishard. tor the Board of Super
visors, and A. u. Kauuiuou lor
the Hawaiian people.
Mr. Broadbent explained the
proposed tour of the Juvenile Bos-
tonians. I his was followed by the
circulation of a subscription list by
Judge Hofgaard, as a result of
which the stock for the amount of
money required as a guarantee was
practwallv taken on the spot.
Dr. Derby and others not on the
regular program was called upon
and made quite interesting talks.
The banquet was a great success,
and the opinion seemed to be un
animous that much good had come
of getting the business men to
gether in that way.
The game of baseball Sunday
afternoon between the Makawelis
and Koloas resulted in victory for
the former by a score of 11 to 2,
The game was without special fea
tures, save for the constant and
effective hammering away of the
second series champions, The score
by innings was as follows:
Koloa 100000001 2
Makaweli 13202120 x 11
LIHUES BEAT KILAUEAS
The game between Kilauea and
Lihue took place on the grounds
of the former and was a hummer,
the Lihues winning by the close
score of 3 to 2. The big feature of
this game was a triple play by the
Kilaueas in tin; third inning. The
score by innings was as follows:
1 0 0
10 0 10 0
10 0 0 0 0
