facts and incidents of interest to
the wl ole island :f Kauai. That
paper will be reproduced almost in
full in Tun GunnN Lsi.an'p, in
w eekly' instalments, beginning
with today, Mrs. Rice said:

It inav be explained that the ex

and other towns, does not indicate
that the good people over there
"broke loose" during December.
The fact is that the Kolou police
rounded up several large bunches
of offenders, the total of whose
fines ran into big money.
Sheriff Rice states that court
business during 191 1 was rather
heavier than for the preceding
year, and that collections from

A Filipino named Julio de la
Cruz is under arrest at Waimea on
a temporary charge of carrying a
deadly weapon. Before the case
comes to trial, however, it is like
ly that he will lie "charged with
'assault with a deadly weapon.
It is alleged that last Thursday,
at Camp 2. de la Cruz opened fire
with a pistol on another Filipino
named Anastacio Painpin. The
latter was not struck, but did some
lively dodging and got away to
make complaint against his assail
ant. A woman was at the bottom of
the shooting aifair.

1!L IN HURT IN
John Lovell, Ir., driver for the
Nawiliwili Garage, had a collision
with a train of cane cars makai of
the Hotel Lihue Saturday after
noon that partially wrecked his
mail truck and came near resulting
seriously to himself.
Lovell had left the postofficc
with his load of mail and was
speeding down the Nawiliwili road
to catch the Kinau at the lauding.
When the car track below the ho
tel was approached, a train of cane
cars suddenly backed in across the
road. Lovell tried to check his
machine, and partially succeeded;
but the crash was sufficient to
throw him off his seat and partial
ly wreck the vehicle.
The radiator of the autotruck was
broken and one wheel was smash
ed, besides which there were minor
injuries, which will call for re
pairs. Lovell was cut about the neck,
and was considerably bruised and
There has been some comment
of late regarding the speed made
by the mail car on its wav to steam
