GAMP AT KOLOA
A luati nml drink-fest in the
Japanese catnp at Koloa Sunday
resulted in one man, hvatnura by
name, going to the hospital with a
had cut across the forehead and
another Japanese named Komnki
being confined in jail to await de
velopments. f The fight ocenred on the veranda
of the festal rendesvotis and was
between Iwamura and Komrtki.
A third man named Fukushima
tiied to separate the "scrappers"
and received a heavy blow on the
y eve which put him out of commis
sion. It is alleged that Komaki then
threw Iwamura from the veranda,
the latter sustaining a cut about
four inches long across the forehead
which reached to the bone. The
injured man was taken to the hos
pital and Komaki was locked up.
Last Monday Mr. W. F. San
born and his little son, Jackie, met
with an accident that might have
been serious. Driving past Chir.g
Young's Store i n his buggy, a
large autotruck came along and
startled the horse, which began to
cut up and part of the harness
broke, further frightening it. Then
lac shafts broke and tbr. horse got
free from t h e' buggy, its final
. plunge giving the buggy enough
X of momentum to run it into the
ditch alongside the road. Fortu
nately neither Mi. Sanborn nor
his son were hurt. The horse, too,
escaped without any injury.

"In the last issue of the Garden
Island, I noticed an editorial re
ferring to the proposed excursion
from Honolulu to Kauai on Feb.
12th. You may be assured that
when our excursion reaches Kauai
we would naturallv expect to im
mediately meet with t h e well
known and old time hospitality
which Garden Islanders have al
ways given a stranger in their
midst. The Garden Islanders, as
hosts, have always made good with
any excursion, and the crowd sent
over by the Outdoor Promotion
Committee, I know, will find this

ONE B. B. SCHEIE
Superintendent Forbs left here
on Saturday with the determina
tion to definitely recommend one
of the two schemes ( not both) for
supplving railway facilities to the
Waipouli homesteaders. His rec
ommendation was to have gone to
the Governor yesterday, and prob
ably did; although information ot
the fact has not been received
Mr. Forbes declined to state,
while here, width of the two
propositions would hi recom
mended the one to connect Wai
pouli with Ahukini or the one to
connect the same district with
Kapaa; although lie did state that
one had been decided upon and
that the railroad would, almost
without doubt, be put lliroityh.
From information that has come
to it, however, Tim G.vnniiN Is.
land is willing to hazard a guess
that the Waipouli-Ahukini pro
ject, with provision foi eventually
extending to Nawiliwili, has been
recommended t o the Governor;
and that approval of the recom
mendation will likelv be given in
the next few days.
The situation at the time Mr.
Forbes left here on Saturday was
as follows: The superintendent.
Treasurer McCarthy, President
Isenberg, of Lihue Plantation Com
pany, with Manager Weber; and
Manager Gay lord Wilcox, of the
Makee Sugar Company were over
both of the proposed lines of rail
way on Friday The Honolulu
officials not only went over both
proposed lines, but also over the
entire homestead tract to be affect
ed a n d interviewed practica ly
everybody directly interested in
the matter. They spent the entire
day on it.
The result of the official investi
gation was that Superintendent
Forbes will urge the Governor to
take action at once and grant the
right of way for a railroad in order
that the work of track laving may
start without delay; the matter of
a permanent franchise to be dealt
with in due course. The reason for
this conclusion is that thev found
the business of the homesteaders
at a standstill end everybodj in
this promising homesteading sec
tion literally "marking time" un
til markctting facilities are pro
The suggestion has been made
that franchises be granted to both
railway projects, the argument in
favor of that being tha: additional
competition for cane contracts
would be provided. The conclu
sion seemed to be, howevir, that
the one railway would create suffi
cient competition between the sug
ar companies for the output of the
homesteads, and would provide
the avenue to shipping points so
Speaking of the matter in gener
al, Suparlntendent Forbes said:
"The Kapta landi offer the best
homesteading proipect in the Ter
ritory. It is a fine field there for
the industrious farmer, and if the
homesteaders get the railroad they
are after, their success is assured."

A friend of the paper and also
of the Lihue Tennis Club has pie
pared the following suggestions to
the latter, which appear to be
reasonable and tinielv:
The recent tennis tournament
on the Lihue courts has given
much pleasure, not only to the
players, but also to those who
looked on; but there were some
diaw backs. The frame work sup
porting the wire is so constructed
that it hinders a good view of the
plav. The players have difficul
ties, too, for the wire i; too close to
the courts, and should be moved
back at least six feet on the two
sides next to the athletic field, as
it interferes with a free use of the
racket when the ball is placed
close to the edge of the court.
We realize that the umpire has
a position requiring close attention;
but it makes the game very much
more interesting for the spectators
to be able to hear the score.
We also realize that the ladies
are greatly handicapped by their
long skirts, and think it would be
a great advantage to have the
skirt made short as mountain-climbers
do, and finish the costume
with leggins or golf stockings.
They would find the greater ease
and freedom at play very desirable.
