Dr. Sinclair And The Local
Tuberculosis Hospital Com
- Dr. A. N. .Sinclair, superinten
dent of Lcahi Home for Incurables,
Pathologist and superintendent of
the Tuberculosis Bureau of the
Territorial Hoard of Health, came
over in the Kinntt Wednesday
morning and returned to Hono
lulu in the W. G. Hall, sailing
The object of his mission was to
look, with the local committee,
over sites which have been sug
) gested for the Sam Mahelona Hos
pital for the Cure of Tuberculosis.
In that work he had quite a strenu
ous time of it, but left feeling that
he had gained quite a clear know
ledge of the local situation.
While here Dr. Sinclair was the
house guest of Dr. and Mrs. Put
man, of Lihue.
The local committee on the pro
posed hospital, it will ptobably be
remembered, consists of Chas. H.
Wilcox, Miss Mable Wilcox, E.
H. V. Broadbent. H. D. Wishard
and F. A. Alexander. On Wed
nesday i h a t committee accom
panied Di. Sinclair through the
Kapaa region and examined the
various sites which had been sug
gested. On Thin sday the entire
committee and the specialist went
to the Makaweli-Waimea side and
examined available sites there
and around Kekaha.
On Friday a return trip was
made to the plateau above Kapaa.
where the site which had originally
impressed Dr. Sinclair was gone
As a result of the investigations
it is probably safe to say that the
site above Kapaa will be recom
mended. Dr. Sinclair stated that he felt
reasonably certain of being able to
procure from the Legislature the
money needed for maintenance,
inasmuch as the subject of hospi
tals for the treatment of tuberculo
sis was just now very much in the
public mind; and, furthermore, on
account of the splendid donation
by Hon. and Mrs. Albert Wil
cox for buildings, the task was
rendered much easier en Kauai.
There are those on Kauai who
have felt that a site on the lee side
of the island, and very high on
the mountains should have been
chosen, and authorities agree that
the contention has real merit. The
specialist seemed to feel, however,
thnt.the Kapaa site, so called, pos
sessed suitable conditions, and had
the further advantage of accessibil
ity. The latter is an important
factor, it is claimed, when it is
considered that the afflicted cannot,
under the law, be compelled to en
ter any hospital.
The school children of Hauamau
lu, Lihue, the German School and
the Kauai High School were treat
ed to a matinee in Hale Hooni at
10 o'clock Saturday morning, when
the films "Neptune's Daughter"
and "Mary Pickford" were put
on. Something oyer 300 children
were entertained, and they had
one, royal, good time.
f Ou Card Parly
Invitations hne been sent out
for a card party to be given at the
Lihue Hoarding House next Satur
day evening under the auspices of
the Ou Club. '
The Primary Flection for the
selection of candidates to be ballot

will be hold in all the precinc's of
Kauai, during the regular election
hours, next Saturday.
The candidates for supervisors

Lewis Hanohano, Democrat.
Hanalei A Mcnefoglio
McBrydc, Wishard and Mene
foglio are running to succeed them
selves, and as they have no oppo
sition will probably be elected
handily in the primary. In order
to be so elected they will have to
have a majority of the votes then.
Sharp contests for supervisor
are looked for in the Waimea and
Kawaihau districts. In the former,
the majority of guesses seems to be
in favor of Mr. Brandt, although
the other two men are admittedly
very strong. The situation in Ka
waihau is even less easy to deter
mine, and it will probably not be
until the last vote is counted that
the high man will be known. Even
then, he will have to run against

A very keen fight will take place
between A. G. Kaulukouand Har

Both have strong friends, and the
race at this writing seems to be
"neck and neck."
This i s the first primary for
county officials on Kauai under
the new system o f holding the
county elections in May. Officials
elected at this time, or in May,
will take office the first diy of July
and will serve for two years.
"Bob" Shingle Calls
R. W Shingle, president of the
Waterhouse Trust Company, ac
companied by Mr. Diecken, a prom

paid a flying visit to Kauai on
Friday, coming up on the W. G.
Hall and returning by the same
vessel at evening, the Hall being

GET El BONUS
Officers of Lihue plantation,
drawing from $50 and upward per
month, were made especially hap
py last week by the conclusion of
the company to pay them a bonus
of eighteen per cent on their salar
ies for the past year.
The total to be paid out to each
man will amount to quite a little
sum, as will be readily fcen by
figuring. For instance, an officer
diawing $100 a month, or $1,200
a year, will receive $216 00 extra
in his "bonus stocking;" while a
man drawing only $50 a month
will get $108.00.
This bonus is figured and allow
ed upon a basis of the profits of
the company for the year. A bonus
is also paid to laborers and salaried
employees drawing 'less than $0 a
month, but that is figured upon a
basis of the price of sugar above
$70 a on, and is more or less uni
foini throughout the Territory.
It is needless to say that there
is "jov in the camp" of the larger
salaried employees of the planta
tion (of whom there are quite a
number) this week on account of
the unexpectedly large bonus.

A PLAN TO SAVE
An agitation has been started to
have the county act so amended
by the present Legislature as to
provide for the appointment of
attorneys of the Territorial Attorney-General's
office to handle the
business of (he counties of Hawaii.
Maui and Knu.ii. in place of those
counties electing their own attor
neys ns at present.
It is claime'd that the attorneys
of the counties outside of Hono
lulu have the veriest .sinecures;
that they really have work only a
few davs at a time three or four
tunes a year, and that the balance
of the time their services' are of no
value to the public at all.
The county attorneys draw from
SI. SCO to $2,400 a year apiece,
plus certain amounts for "expen
ses, a total cost to the three
counties of between $6,000 and
$8,000. It is figured that one of
the attaches of the Territorial Attorney-General's
attend to the whole business at a
cost of not over $1,000 a year per
county, and perhaps much lesi
than that figure.
The further point is made that
such an arrangement would take
the office and business of county
prosecutor out of politics, which
has come to be regarded as of
great importance, for many rea
sons. If the county act is so amended,
it is hoped by the proponents of
the idea that the amendment mav
go into effect the first of next luly,
so that the elections of county at
torneys in May next may not b:
