t,ocks of Christmas goods on
Kuai this year are fully as com
plete as ever, and perhaps more so.
Some of the newer novelties are
in evidence, while the displays of
old-line Christinas specialties are
exceedingly attractive. Some of
tne stores have not yet opened all
1 of their goods, but they have suffi
fent on view to show that thev
are making a strong bid for holi
day busin ss. Decorations in the
stores will come a little later.
The Lihue Store has a stock of
Christinas goods that would be n
credit to a great city establishment.
Besides an almost endless variety
of staples, thev 'have a most at
tractive assortment o f novelties.
One of their leading lines is a lot
of household articles made by the
Hilo Boarding school. Most of
these arc fashioned from koa, and
are pretty, substantial, appropriate
McBryde Store, at Eleele, is also
well equipped for the holidays,

personally by Mr. Roendahl. The
assortment is very complete. Ma

something in stock to meet the re

purchaser, and his display certain

The Nawiliwili Light
Editor Gakdi;n Island:
In your last issue of the Gar
den Island" there was a complaint
made that the light on the point
near Nawiliwili had at times not
been , lit until a late hour. In
justjtee to myself I wish to state
thaf the light in question is always
lit at the proper time, but some
times the lamp gets over-heated and
sNnokes and obscures the glassjcon
sequently those observing it take
it for granted that there is no light.

of the light w a s leported by
me to the department long ago.

Kinney Has Long Ride
On the i s 1 a n d of Niihau
Superintendent Kinney, of the De

fifteen miles oil horseback to reach

late A. T. Atkinson.

ENTY YEARS FOR
After listening to the evidence
and hearing argument for three days
last week, the jury in the murder
case of Kanda Ikumalsu brought
In a verdict on Friday of murder
in second degree.
Sunday evening, September 13,
there wa a drink-fest in the labor
er's camp at Wiikai, near Waimea.
Along about 10 o'clock an argu
ment arose, during which the man
Ikiunatsu gathered up a cane
knife and started in to do up his
companions. One Sakurai Takizo
was attacked and brutally slashed,
his stomach being cut open, breast
cut and deep wounds inflicted on
an arm and a leg. Another man
named Nada Kanibaro was also
badly cut about the face, but made
his escape. Takizo died a short
time after the cutting.
A. G. Kaulukou appeared for
the defendant and put up a very
strong fight. S. K. Kaeo for the
prosecution. Many witnesses were
The charge was murder in the
first degree, but was modified
to murder in the second degree.
The court sentenced defendant
to imprisonment for not more than
sixty nor less than twenty years.
Inasmuch as he is now about for
ty, he will be quite an old man
when he comes out again.
An unusual side feature develop
ed in this case. Attorney Kaulti-
ou excused all Germans from
serving on the jury on the ground
that as Germany and Japan were
at war, they might be slightly pre
judiced. Attorney Kaeo, follow
ing this suggestion, also excused
Japanese on the jury, the ground
presumably being the same.
