A RECEPTION 10
S, A. RICE
Charles A. Rice was given a
grand welcome home at the Nawi
liwili wharf upon the arrival of the
steamer Kiuau at 2-30 a. in. last
Wednesday. Headed by Dr. F. L.
Putman, president of the Chamber
of Commeice, quite a delegation of
prominent citizeusand a few ladies
were present, despite the unusual
hour. The Kapaia band, led by
Mr. Sotiza, was also much in evi
dence and filled the still hours of
the eirly morning with inspiring
The steamer reached her moor
ings on schedule. The band, which
-4. had been stationed near the end of
the wharf, began to play, and the
boats pulled off from the steamer
to the landing. A banner, carried
by one of the men, bore the legend:
"Welcome To Charlie."
Senator and Mrs. Rice weie in
one of the first boats reaching the
lauding, and were greatly surprised
and seemed much pleased with the
reception they were given. After a
short talk, the band played some
more and the early morning party
took to their autos and dispersed.
At - the Lihue Union Church
Sundav morning Mr. Lydgate
preached a sermon on the above
timely subject, which, on account
of its peculiar interest at the mo
ment, is published in full. lie said:
Since my departure six weeks a
go the most appalling tragedies ot
wai have been enacted-and an: still
enacted in Kurope. The time ni.-y
have been wh'n s'ich a war on the
other side of the world wouldn't
very much disturb us-that time is
None of ns can be indifferent to J
the great wm that is going on j
and some of us are imolved by I
ties of friendship and relationship
which run very close and cut very!
deep. Little as we may be able lo
realize the vivid horrors of war-it
is the one subject that is most
permanently uppermost i n our
nimds. and this fact must be my
i istification for what I have to sav
to you this morning. To come
with, any casual subject of every
da life would be to neglect viu.l
In the first place it is manifestly
inexpedient to apportion blame for
the precipitation of the war. Even
if wo could do so with acctin cv
and certainly . If we could pick
out some one, or more, of the great
powers, and declare with an assured
com icJon which the world a1. large
would recognize "They, a n d
they only are the ones to blame". It
would be inexpedient, here anyway,
to do it. And manifestly we cannot
do this. TIiq world is at variance
about who is to blame. Ultimately
perhaps in the calm of retrospect,
history, may be able accurately
and authoritatively to place the
responsibility. Assuredly we in the
midst of the din, and confusion, and
half knowledge, of actual war
we are not in a position to appor
tion that responsibility and to do '
Quite the largest meeting in its
history was held by the Kauai His
torical Society at the Li hue Union
church last Thursday evening,
President W. II. Rice in the chair.
The meeting was planned lor the
Library, but the attendance was so
large that the sliding doors of the
church had to be thrown wide to
accommodate the audience.
Three exceedingly interesting
papers were read. The first, by
Judge Hofgaard. was replete with
items of Kauai history and was in
terspersed with just enough humor
to make it "set" well.
The real subject of the evening
was "The Islands to the North
west", and a map of the numerous
islets was conspicuouslv displayed
on a blackboard. The first paper
on this subject was by Miss Elsie
of data selected lroin the "North
Pacific Pilot" and other authorities,
in addition to which were numer
ous explauatatory references of a

it is the ease of the blind and un
reasoning confusion that follow
the cry of fire in a crowded
theater, everyone makes a rush for
the door. Those in front are
knocked down and trampled upon
by those behind, who, in turn, an

the panic conditions. There may
be no fiveat all that makes no dif

terrible war is doubtless justified
in declaring that thev desired

the aggression to the other fellow"
Secondly. There is need for the
utmost discretion in the way of
comment or criticism of the .'war
and for the largest tneaiM. of re
spect for the feelings ' coii
victions of others. In a ..aiopo
litan community like this, -.'mre is
a great variety of outlook', sym
pathy, and afiiliation-and very de
cided convictions. We feel sure of
the righteousness of our cause
and would indignantly resent nd
verse criticism in regard to our
position or convictions. Now,
should we not extend to others the
same courtesy that we would like

the injunction: "Put yourself in
his place". How would vou like
someone else to de.il into you the
harsh or ungenerous things you
are tempted to deal out to them?
There may be some justification
for the impalatable deliverance that
is at once true and salutary, where
some good end may be served.
There can be no justification for
the impalatable deliverance that is
neither tr e nor salutary where no
good end can be served but only
strife and bitterness engendered.

Gamblers Fined Heavy
Judge Hofgaard handed out some
rather stiff fines to Filipino sam
plers in his Waimea court at the
week end. Two of them were old of
fenders, and the court thought
that $50 apiece would be a proper
check upon their gambling' pro
clivities. Five others were let off
with fines ranging from $10 down,
according to the degree of sinners
they had been proved to be.
The New Barber Shop
Mr. R. T. Snyder, proprietor of
the new Lihue barber shop, an
nounces that in addition to men's
hair cutting, shaving, shampooing,
massaging, etc., he makes a spe
cialty of cutting children's hair in
the latest styles, and gives all kinds
of facials, with hot water and
towels. All work in the most
modern style. Everything in and
about the shop sanitary in every
respect. Lihue people au 1 i ople
of other Kauai towns !iave
not yet tried the shop are .::vited
to call. Open during business
hours every day and evening.
Mrs. A. Meuefoglio and daugh

It was announced that the next

of the late Au Con dice, of Kapi.a.

the reason that it had hung fire in

1908, its career having beeu beset
by unusual complications.

A NEW BASEBALL
Lihue is to have another season
of baseball, the games starting
next Stindav afternoon on the lo
The teams to compete arc the
Germans Lihue, local Filipino
team, local Jajancse team, a team
from Nawiliwili and a fifth team
The Lihue jlantation has put up
a cup to be competed fot by the
The games will be played Sun
day afternoons for ten consecutive
weeks, the first being at 1 o'clock
and the second at 3 o'clock.
The idea of the series, aside
from the matter of sport, is to keep
the baseball spirit uji with a view to
having a first-class team to go in
with next season. It is figured
that by starting a five-team com
bination here, nine very fast base
ball men will be brought t light,
so that when playing is resumed
next year Lihue will be able to
take the lead from the jump.
It is ioiuted out in this connec
tion that Lihue has always fallen
down in the past as a result of un
prcj)aredness at the start, and it is
purposed to guard against failure
at that jjoint next time.
The Nawiliwili team will be
known as the Hawaiis. Charles
Kuhlmatin, manager of the League
for the season, has made up the
following schedule of games:
September 27, Japanese vs. Fili
jiiuos; Hawaiis vs. Huleias.
October 1, Germans vs. Japanese:
Filipinos vs. Huleias.
October 11, Germans, vs.
jiinos; Hawaii's vs. Japanese.
October 18, huleias vs.
mans; Hawaiis vs. Filipinos.
October 25, Hawaiis vs.
mans; Huleias vs. Jajiauese.
November 1. Jajiauese vs.
jiinos: Hawaiis vs. Huleias.
November S, Uertnaiii vs. Jajjan-
ese; Mliptuos vs. Huleias.
November 15, Germans vs. Fili
pinos; Hawaiis vs. Japanese.
Noveber 22, Huleias vs.
mans; Hawaiis vs. Filipinos.
November 29, hawaiis vs.
mans; Huleias vs. Japanese.
It will be noted that each team
will j)lay eight games.
After the advertisement on jiago
3 was in type, Eddie Fernandez
changed his plans slightly in re
gard to programs in Lihue, and
will appear here Saturday and
Monday evenings in place of Fri
dav and Saturday evenings.
Entertainments will be given at
Kcalia Thursday and Friday even
ings, arrangements for the same
having been completed this morn
ing. The new program is as follows:
Kealia, Thursday and Friday
evenings, of this week; Lihue,
Saturday and Monday evenings.
Patents of children attending,
or wishing to attend, the Grammar
School are requested to meet in the
Library at 7:30 Friday evening.
