appreciative audience i n Lihue

Commerce, and quite a number of
members from various parts of the

and friends were present.
Dr.Stu')bs, who was introduced
by Rev. J. M. Lydgate. talked for
more than a hour in an most inter
esting w a y, supplying a large
amount of information concerning !
India and the people of that land.
A great many anecdotes and witty
interpolations served to "ginger
up" the address. At the conclu
sion of the lecture the speaker was
given a round of hearty applause.

SEEMS III DOUBT
The prospect of getting a rail
road at an early date between the
homestead region above Kapaa and
Nawiliwili, as proposed by the
Kauai Chamber of Commerce,
seems to be a trifle slim just now.
It has already been stated that,
on account of eliminating certain
essential features, the Governor
had so shaped his counter proposal
! as to make it not a desirable under
taking for the Lihue Plantation
Company. The latter, however,
took the whole matter under con
sideration at Honolulu last week,
but it is understood that in place
ot taking uelinite action it was
referred to a special committee of
the directorate for investigation and
a report later on.
As remarked at the time the
proposition was first broached, it is
a large matter and, as is usual in
such cases, cannot hope for smooth
sailing. At the same time, the
outlook now is certainly quite
