SUBSCRIPTION RATES, $2.50 PER YEAR 5 CENTS PER COPY
The Rood ship Manna Kea was
sighted fully three hours ahead of
time last Thursday morning, hav
ing had such tine weather and
such smooth seas nil the way from
Hawaii that unusual speed had
been made. It came a trifle awk
ward for the local committee, how
ever, the members ot which were
still at business or putting the final
touches on the day's program.
But there was a lively ringing of
telephones throughout the com
munity, a scurrying of autos hith
eand thither, and before the first
bont arrived at the landing there
was such a crowd on hand that
one would not have suspected that
it was a "hurry-up" gathering.
The assignments to autos 'was
carried out in excellent style. As
there was so mucn time to spare
prior to the luncheon at Niumalu,
side trips to Wailua Falls and
other points ot interest near by
were hastily planned and carried
The Niumalu Luncheon
At Niumalu an immense pavi
lion, covered. with palms and ferns,
had been erected and it was there
that the visitors, members of the
Chamber of Comnieice and their
wives, members of the Mokihana
Club and others gathered for the
luncheon prepared and served by
the Mokihana ladies. Provision
had been made fully for a hundred
more ,than were present, so that
Vhere was no crowding. "
I The following ladies had most
to do with arranging the pretty
Lunch: Mrs. Isenberg, Mrs. A.
S. Wilcox, Mrs. Rohrig, Mrs.
Avery Mrs. Anderman, Mrs. R.
L. Wilcox, Miss M. I. Wilcox.
Decoration: Mrs. Stewart, Mrs.
Hogg, Mrs. C. II. Wilcox. Mrs.
Hay, Mrs. Coney, Mrs. Thurtell,
Mrs. C. A. Rice.
A Lihue orchestra supplied mu
sic at the mauka end of the pavi
lion while the orchestra brought
from Honolulu did the honors at
the side entrance.
During the luncheon, assign,
ments to homes and to automo
biles were adjusted.
After the luncheon, moving and
group pictures of the party were
takeii on the lawn of the premises,
and then Duke Kahanamoku
and young Oliver gave an exhibi
tion of speed swimming in' the
Huleia river. Oliver had a fifty
yards handicap and g a y e the
Uiainpion a close rub.
When this feature as over the
members of the visiting party were
taken in charge by their respec
tive hosts. Most ot them left in
autos at once for the lee side of
the island, visiting all points of
interest between Lihue and Ke
kaha. The section of the party to
slop over night in Lihue and Ko
loa returned in the late afternoon
for the Lihue reception, the others
remaining over for the reception in
T h e only accident connected
with the landing of the Congres
sional party on Kauai was a case
of mixing two pieces of baggage,
and that was straightened out, al
though not until some inconven
ience had been given a lady inem
I er of the party. Uaggage was
taken charge of bv the shore de

out that no Unas were drawn under
the figures "6" and "9" to dis
tinguish them sj that the usual
tiling happened --No "(" wert
where No. "9" should imv .'nne,'
and vice versa. As one of the des
tinations was in Uinie and the
other in Waimea. it took several
hours to exchange the baugnge.
01 IIIA SIDE
Harly Thursday nfternoon autos
began at riving in Waimea bearing
members of the Congressional par
ty. A Kauai man accompanied
each machine. The early arrivals
had passed the Spouting Horn,
Lawai Cannery, Kukuilono Park
and other things by. intending to
take them in on the way to Lihue
and Ilanalei. Some of the parties
arriving late, however, had taken
in many o f the sights enroute.
During the afternoon the distin
guished visitors scattered around
the country, . many going to the
canyons, some to t h e Barking
Sands (which were in excellent,
"barking" trim, by the way,)
while others, feeling weary from
the days and days of travel, con
tented themselves with a further
jaunt onlv as far as Kekaha.

Berlin--Although the government has not made public the text of
President Wilson's letter to Germany, the afternoon papers yesterday
published translations of the version carried from Washington to Paris
by French news bureaux. 4
One Berlin newspaper savs Germany will not delay answer. Most
probably the German reply will be devoted to the sacred duty the
government owes the nation. Such a note would make it clear to Pre
sident Wilson that Germany may conduct her war just as she is con
ducting it now.

"Uncle Joes" Vitality
The vitality of "Uncle Joe"
Cannon was further illustrated on
Kauai. He was up with the peep
o' day on Thurseay, and was on
the go all that day and until 1 o'
clock Friday morning, when he
retired to rest. At 6 o'clock or
five hours later, his Lihue host,
hearing a noise in the room of the
youth of 79. went to his door and
found "Uncle Joe" had already
had his bath, a shave and was
dressed and ready for breakfast.
The old gentleman seemed fully
refreshed and as happv as a lark.
A remarkable feature of the tour
of the Congressional party of this
island was that there w?re no ac
cidents of any kind. Even ordinary
auto trouble was not in much evi
dence One jitney occupied b y
Dr. Huddy, "Bilhe" Robinson and
E. Henriques had slight carbure
tor trouble, and a car occupied by
W. II. Rice, Jr., and guests had a
flat tire. That for two d.iys run
ning of a large number of machines
is probably a record.
Next Sunday's baseball games
will be as follows: J. A. C. vs
Lihue, at Lihue; Makaweli vs. Mc
Brvde at Eleele.
G RECEPTION II
THE LIHUE HULL
The reception at Lihue in th;
hall was of course one of the main
event5' of the visit from the point
of view of the visitors as well as
the local residents, and was a
thoroughly democratic affair, in
which all classes were represented.
The hall was beautifully deco
rated for the occasion with jhat
simple, yet effective, grace which
bespeaks the touch of the Lihue
The committee on decorations
consisted of the following: .
Mrs. Putnian, Mrs. Thielen,
Mrs. W. II. Rice. Jr., Mrs. Win

Everyone was having such a
good time in an informal wav that
it was with difficulty that people
could be rounded up for the for
mal presentation to the members
ofi the Congressional party, who
responded in o s t cordially and
courteously to what must alwavs
be a more or less trying ordeal.

A BAB E8G GETS
A YEAR II JAIL
Charles Kamai, a young Ha
waiian rufliaii of Waimea, was
sentenced in the court there yester
day to a year in prison for a case
of aggravated assault and battery.
It appears that he pounced upon
and struck another Hawaiian boy
a blow in the back of the head,
knocking him into a taro patch.
The victim of the assault was ren
dered unconscious, a n d would
doubtless have drowned in the
slime had he not been discovered a
few minutes later by a passer-by.
Kamai is considered a bad egg,
and the fact that he had been in
jail befoic for a similar offense had
a great deal to do with the severe
sentence imposed upon him yester
day. In the absence of Judge Ilof
gaard in San F'rancisco, second
Judge Ak.na is polishing up the
bad element in Waimea just now.
OF LIE EVENING
Mr. Abend, the new city editor
ol the Honolulu Star-Bulletin,

party, kindly prepared the follow

anchored in Nawiliwili harbor.
The water was not rough, at
least so the residents of Kauai as
sured the congressional visitors,
adding that the usual time of laud
ing was 2:30 A. M . Then and there,
it seems from subsequent speeches
made on Kauai bv senators and re
presentatives, the visitors decided
to work and vote for a breakwater
appropriation for the Garden Is
land. Thursday was voted delightful,
both as to weather and entertain
ment, A long line of automobiles
was waiting at the Nawiliwili dock,
and the visitors were taken for
drives in the interior before lunch,
most of the parties being taken
first to Wailua Falls. Luncheon
was served at Niumalu, the beach
lunne of Representative J. H. Co

erected on the beautiiul grounds,
and about 400 people were served,
