ii m theater
Architect C. B.Ripley came over
from Honolulu Fridav morning to
nspect the work on the new resi
dence of George N. Wilcox and to
look over the ground opposite Li
hue store upon which it is purpos
ed to erect a new business block
a n d theater.- He completed the
details of his mission in time to
catch the steamer Saturday after
noon for home.
The plans for the new building
opposite Lihue store were changed
to the end that the new theater
will probably not be a separate
structure but will occupy a posi
tion extending back of the propos
ed business block, making that
block somewhat "T" shaped, with
the theater forming the stem.
The entrance to the theater will
be at the center of the block, and
will be wide and brilliantly illumi
nated -at night. Then there will be
long wide, lobby, with ticket
office, etc. The theater itself will
follow somewhat the lines already
reported, although the details have
been considerably "touched up"
and improved by the architect.
The final-plans., estimate of cost
etc, will be taken up by Mr. Rip
ley t once, and it should not be
long before actual work on the
new building may be possible.
Mr. Atkinson Here
A. L. C. Atkinson, representing
the government in the cases before
the Circuit Court, will probably be
on Kauai until Saturday spend
ing something over a week. He is
a guest of Hotel Lihue. Mr. At
kinson is a son of the late Alatau
T. Atkinson, for many years Sup

himself been Secretary of Hawaii
