Rubber Tires Up
Another item to greatly advance
in prices as a result of the war is
rubber goods, and Islands agencies
o f rubber tires for automobiles
have already announced an advance
in prices of twenty per cent and
more. Crude rubber is not affected,
but the embarrassment has come
upon the manufacturer of rubber
goods, they being largely in Europe,
Geo. Fairchild Talks.
George Fairchild, formerly man
ager for the Spaldings in Hawaii,
brought back a whisper of politics
from the Philippines on the Mon
golia yesterday. He said:
"I saw the writing on the wall
and left Hawaii for the Philippines.
I must say that there is only one
salvation for the Hawaiian Islands.
They must put back the 1 cent
per pound sugar duty or give the
islands the same tariff that Java and
other sugar producing places haye.

cheap labor. Otherwise "Good

WORK 01 KAUA
The July report of the Anti
Tuberculosis Bureau has been re
ceived and approved bv the Board
of Health. In reference to the work
on the island of Kauai it says:
The figures for Kauai and the
Kauai register are being complete
ly revised through the efforts of
Miss Wilcox and as a result come
more nearly expresuing the actual
status of tuberculosis for that dis
trict than the figures of other dis
tricts do for theirs. This, of course,
is largely due to the fact that the
island i s "compact" and that
most districts are easily accessible
Miss Wilcox, the district nurse,
on the other hand, is doing excel
lent work which is largely respon
sible for the new figures.
At the end of the month fitty-
four per cent of all Kauai cases
were under supervision. Twentv-
six cases are under the artnnl
supervision of the district nurse
herself, all having been visited
during the month, and six are in
the various Kauai hospitals.
Of the ten cases reported by the'
nurse, two were from Lihue, four
from Koloa. one from Kawaihan
two from Waimea and one from

Bankers May Come
According to information which
has been received by H. P. Wood,
secretary of the Promotion Com
mittee, an exclusion to Hawaii of
members of the American Banker's
Association may be brought about
in 1915. The association has been
in correspondence with Mr. Wood
regarding Hawaii as a setting for
the 1915 annual convention, an in
vitation that the members visit
here hay ig been presented by J
R. Gait at the recent gathering in
Chicago. The invitation was de
clined, however, as the project
w:'S adjudged impracticable. It is
expected that the convention will
be held in Seattle, the feature of
the meeting being a side trip to

Rice On Maui
Charles A. Rice is just now en
gaged in a very strenous campaign
on the island of Maui. He began
Saturday, and his committee over
there have outlined a program
which means from one to three
speeches a day until the 23rd. Ku
hio and Carter have both toured
Maui, so it is presumed that Rice
is getting the "last say" there be
foie the primaries.
County Auditor C. Maser left
on Saturday for a visit to Honolu
lu. He will be away about ten days.

Three Games Sunday
Three games of baseball are
scheduled for next Sunday, and
everybody between Lihue and Ma
kaweli will have a game conveni
ently near.. Lihue will cross bats
with Koloa at Lihue, McBryde
will meet Kawaihau at Eleele and
the Makaweli champions will take
on the Kilaueas at Makaweli.
These should all be tight contests,
and if the weather is favorable
there will doubtless be large crowds
Isenbergs In War
Hon. D. T. R. Isenberg a i d
that he is very much worried over
the war situation and hardly able
to give time or attention to any
thing. "Four of the members of my im
mediate family are officers in the
German army," he said, "two
brothers and my brothers in-law.
My youngest brothel is a captain
in the famous 'Black Cavalry' iegi
ment of the 'Death's Head Guards.'
Three are in the cavalry and one
in the Forest Corps. I cannot .et
