MONUMENT FOB THE
LATE JUDGE HARDY
A movement was started late
yesterday at the Waimea end of
the island to provide a splendid
monument for the grave of the late
Judge Jacob Hardy, the money
for the same to be raised bv popu
lar subscription over Kauai. The
Waimea people point out that ow
ing1 to the extraordinarily efficient
and faithful services of Judge Har
dv o'er a period of so many years,
such a testimonial from Kauai citi
zens would be most fitting.
Judge C. B. Hofgaard, of Wai
mea, is taking an active, personal
interest in furthering the object at
the Waimea side.
Following a telephonic discus
sion of the matter last night with
citizens of various towns it was de
cided that the siibject be brought
up, also, at the bannuet-seision of
tile Chamber of Commerce a week
from Thursday e cuing, with a
view to securing the endorsement
of the. leading business men ot the
Judge Henry E. Cooper, one of
the Honolulu speakers selected for
the annual banquet of the Kauai
Chamber of Commerce at Ildtel
Lihue a week from Thursday even
ing, finds that he will not, owing
to a change of plans, be able to at
tend. T h e subject assigned to
Judge Cooper was "The 1916 Car
nival," and it was expected that
he would have an interesting ad
dress on tap. His place on the
program will be taken by another
feature and' another speaker. The
secretary last night received the
following from Judge Cooper, the
letter coming via Port Allen:
"My first intention was to ac
cept your invitation to be present
on the evening of the 19th as it
seemed very opportune for me to
meet the members of your Cham
ber of Commerce. But my plans
have changed rapidly during the
past few days and I expect to
leave for San Francisco on the 12th
"I has been my effort from the
first to make the Carnival a Terri
torial affair and to interest the
people of all the counties in mak
ing it a success.
"After my return the details of
the carnival will be more in hand
and I will then be able to speak
more definitely in regard to my
desiie for the participation of your
good folks in the event.
"Yours very truly,

THE SUDOEN DEATH
OF DR. THOMPSON
Mrs. Dr. James Malcolm Thomp
son nee Miss Maud dc Brctteville ,
with her infant, arrived at the
home of her parents in Lihue last
Wednesday from California, ana
the following day Thursday re
ceiveda wireless bearing the unex
pected and sad news of the death
of her husband in San Francisco,
which had occurred that day.
, Upon instructions wirlcssed by
Mrs. Thompson and her parents,
the body has been cremated and
the ashes will be brought to Lihue
where the funeral will be heid
pfobably under Masonic auspices.
Mrs. Thompson, who had conu
for a visit with relations after an
absence of a little more than a
year, has thus had her plans shat
tered; and she will remain in Li
hue. It is a remarkable coincidence
that on the day of his death the
Territorial Board of Health had
appointed him to be government
physician at Hana, Maui, and un
der ordinary circumstances h e
would have closed up his business
at San Francisco and returned to
the Islands in a very lew weeks.
Dr. Thompson was born in
Glasgow, Scotland, and came to
the Islands some years ago when
quite young. He was a physician
at the Queen's hospital in Hono
lulu for awhile, and assisted Dr.
Putmau as relief in the Lihue hos
pital on two occasions, the last
tjmc being while Dr. and Mrs,
Putman were touring Europe.
He and Miss Maud de Brctte
ville were married in San Francis
co early in July, 1914. They lived
for a time in a town near the city,
but the doctor's health was not the
best there and he recently took up
the practice of medicine in the
Mission district at San Francisco.
At San Francisco the doctor
found it necessary to undergo a n
operation for a stomachic trouble.
Mrs. Thompson wanted to post
pone her departure for the Islands
until the operation was over, but
the doctor did not approve of this
and insisted upon her carrying out
Dr. Thompson was a young man
of attractive personality and ex
cellent habits and b.o r e everv
promise of becoming a leader in
his profession, His untimely de
mise will be much regretted by all
of of his acquaintances in the Is
lands. Hibiscus Display
Mrs. Chas. A. Rice had a most
beautiful display of hibiscus blooms
on the central show cases of Lihue
Store last Wednesday. There were
in the lot between fifteen and twen
ty varieties a most interesting
collection to the fancier of this
species of flower.
Baseball Called Off

Lihues mid J. A. C's and the Ma
kawelis and McBrydes were called
