About 200 People To Arrive At
Nawiliwili February 12
The Trail And Mountain Club,
of Honolulu, which recently car
ried out a successful tour a n d
climb to the top of Haleakala, is
coming to Kauai, 20C strong.
They have chartered the big
steamer Kilauea and will arrive at
Nawiliwili on the morning o f
Saturday, February 12. From
Nawiliwili and Lihue they will
"spread out", as they may choose,
toward Waimea and Hanalei. If
the roads and weather are good,
many will doubtless choose to go
to the Haualei side; if not, all will!aml four children
probably take the Waimea route.

of the Mid-Pacific Magazine and

By the way, if we put this
through, I think it is up to us to
invite the members of your Cham

our guests. A lot of our people
will get off at Lihue, and there
will be plenty of room, and per
haps soni of your Kauai people
haven't seen the most beautiful
part of the island from the sea.
Now, we dont want any enter
taining or anything free. I don't
want my people trained that way.
Members of the Trail And Moun
tain Club must pav for what they
get. If you can lend us any good
guides - or hikers who want to go
hiking with us for the sport of it,
we want them. I shall take tents
and cooking utensils, etc., for

We will have plenty of expert
photographers along, and will of

I do wish I knew Kauai as well
as I do the other islands, and now
that I have my headquarters in the
Promotion Committee rooms here,
and an office force working, not
under me, but with me, I am going
to do all I can to get Kauai in the

the name of a benevolent society
founded herein Lihue soinethirteen
or fourteen vears ago by Mrs. Wm.
Hyde Rice, and most of the mem

name signifies, these women are
joined together for a service of
love-lor mutual encouragement, to
help each other to greater happi
ness and peace and kindness, and
to take the same tilings into the
lives of those around them, and
comfort and help to a n y who
might need it worthily. To-love,
to help, to serve, has been the
key-note o f the society, and it
must have been vital, to have lived

Vice President Carl Ilagens, of

Parke, secretary , and F F. Thomp
son, attorney, of Lihue Plantation
Company, returned to Honolulu
Saturday night aft e r looking
thoroughly over the situation in
regard to the proposed railway
from Nawiliwili to the Waipouli
homestead tract and neighborhood.
The result of the visit of these
officials, together with prior con
ferences, is that the Legislature,
at its coming session, will be ask
ed for temporary franchise road. It
will thereafter be necessary for
a permanent franchise to be pro
cured, which will have to be ap
proved by Congress. With a tem
porary franchise, secured, how
ever, the permanent right will be so
certain that operations will prob
ably begin at once.

Ah Tuck was engaged in drawing
his net in for the third time when
he fell overboard.
The small Hawaiian boy, aged
13, bravely plunged in after th
struggling man, caught hold ol
him and tried to drag him out, but
the Chinaman gripped the boy ir
such a way that both were in dan
ger of drowning. The man oc

away, which he succeeded in
doing, and just in time, too, for
he was almost exhausted when he
reached the landing again.
