(Continued from page 1.)
Geiftle men :
Tonight matks the end o( the
tXf'i vear of the Kauai Chamber
It is with a feeling of deep sor
row that we realize that death lias
taken on of our members, Mr.
Hansen, during the year.' As a
friend and co-worker and as chair
man of one cf our most important
committees, Mr. Hansen's death
leaves us with a deep sense of per
Like all new propositions, your
orgnization has been subjected to
various tiials and I am I believe
speaking conservatively .when I
state that it has steadily grown
stronger, more influential and more
useful to the community.
The by-laws adopted state that
the objects of this organization
shall be to foster and encourage
Commerce. Manufacture, Horticul
ture and Agreulture; to promote
the passage of beneficial laws, to
obtain the best possible transporta
tion facilities both passenger and
freight; to attract and interest vis
itors and to generally advertise
the '.tractions and promote the
welSire of Kauai,
We are properly judged by re
sults; and satisfactory results in
your organization must be based
upon the fairness and enthusiasm
with which the various -problems
arising are considered, and the re
sults of your, efforts speak for
themselves. However, a short re
sume of some of the past years
work may be of iirterest.
By working consistently a n d
constantly in the encouragement
of the homestead question with the
realization that the problems to be
solved on that line by all involved
are worthy of earnest considera
tions you have served a most useful
Realizing that amusement and
' relaxation are essential in the nor
mal life of all of us and further
realizing that the tone and charac
ter of the theatrical and other simi
'uctions on Kauai have in
tnc pa!: left much to be desired,
the Chamber has, by cash guran
tees and other practical appeals,
endeavored to secure the desired
improvement. While we have rea
son to hope that the future will
yield still greater results we have
reason to congratulate ourselves
on several desirable theatrical pro
ductions during the year, including
a number of first class photo plays
You have demanded and secured
the permanent location of a dentist
A most attractive series of Ka
uai scenery have been prepared
and distributed over the world.
You have supported and endors
ed and worked with our efficient
Board of Supervisors in their ef
forts to improve the already fam
ous roads of the Garden Island.
You have added materially to
the influence that was necessary to
secure the presence of the congres
sional inrty in Hawaii and have
secured the cooperation of the
whe Island with the result that
the distinguished visitors left Ka-
uai singing the praises of our peo
ple. You have secured for Kauai the
attendance o f the coming Civic
Convention a representative body
in the best sense of the word.
By endorsing the good work of
a good man Mr. Farley a n d
through the resolutions adopted
signifying the universal regard and
respect which we hold tor him you
have been a material factor in re
taining as our assessor a man in
valuable to Kauai.
You have cnoouraged the beauti-
fying of our island and have evi
denced your appreciation of .those
unselfish and devoted individuals
whom we all know have already
' done so much.
In coi unction with the Board
of Supervisors you have secured
the services on the Hawaiian Pro
motion Committee o f Mr. Paul
IseuberR a man prominently
qua! Veil to get results for Kauai.
' The question of a daily overhind
mail service has been taken up and
there is hope that the coming year
may see some definite progress in
At all times your work has been
for the greatest number and in the
many questions that have arisen in
addition to those mentioned you
have approached them realizing
that your present and future in
fluence in the community depends
on an unbiased action.
It lias been my privilege and
good fortune as President of the
past year to work in harmony and
active cooperation with von all
and I relinguish my office tonight
with a sincere and deep appreci
ation of the honor von have con
ferred upon me.
I desire also fo express mav ap
preciation of your encouragement
and forbearance in my efforts to ful-
fil'thc duties of the. office.
In particular I desire at this time
to acknowledge the efficiency and
enthusiastic service of Mr, Tim-
mons who, as Secretary, has done
far more than any other member
to make the Chamber an effective
body. The nominal salary you
have allowed the Secretary docs
not begin to represent the value
of his services and I sincerely hope
for the general good that you can
induce him to accept a re-election.
It is my earnest hope that each
member will work during the com
ing year to continue the good
work you have begun and that you
give the same cordial support to
my' successor that you have given

Hon. J. II. Coney paid a high
tribute to the work of the retiring
president, who had done so much
to build up the Chamber from a
small organization to an influential
body of 117 members, and moved
that a vote of thanks be given to
him. This motion carried unani
mously. Judge C. B. Hofgaard moved
the adoption of the Nominations
Committee's report, which carried
with it the election of the officers
named therein. Carried by unani
President Putman thereupon in
troduced the new president, Prof.
W. C. Averv, and retired.
President Avery made a wittv,
short speech of acceptance, his re
marks being frequently applauded.
Communications and reports of
committees were then read, fallow
ing which the subject of the Civic
Convention was taken up. This
matter, in its various details, was
discussed for more than an hour,
resulting finally in instructions to
the committees to keep busy and
adoption of the schedule of dele
gates to be invited, which is print
ed at the head of this article.
The Social Session
With the Civic Convention mat
ter out of the way, the social part
of the session began. First there
were responses from the various
owns of the island, each being short
speeches. Former Senator Knudsen
responded for Kekaha, Judge Hof
gaard for Waimea, G. F. Rankin
for Makawcl, J. I. Silva for Klo
ile, J. K. Farley for Koloa. II. I).

Kapaa and W. I' Sanborn for
The first set speech was by Judge
L. A. Dickey, who talked interest
ingly for ten minutes; and then
came the principal speaker of the
evening, Chas, R. Forbes, super
intendent of public works. Mr.
Forbr-s said, among other things,
that while at W ashington he was
assured that the Nawiliwili break
water item would go into the appro
priation bill at tlie coming session
of Congress. Col. Kelley, who has
the matter in charge, had promised
him that the first item would be
$200,000 and that there was hard
ly a doubt about its going through.
lie cautioned that before com
plaints against the telephone svs
tem of the island should be re
ferred to the Public Utilities Com
mission the matter be thoroughly
th-eshed out locally.
In regard to the railroad to the
Waipouli homesteads he said that
the location of the road had been
practically settled, but that the
hitch at present came trom a de
sire of 'one competitor wishing to
go across the lands of another
He read letters to show that the
delay in beginning work on the
new Waimea wharf was io! the
fault of his department, but was
due to the difficulties in the wnv
of getting settlements for the land
required. He believed, however,
that that matter would be soon
straightened out satisfactorily.
Land, he said, had been offered
by Mr. Wilcox for the new ware
house at Hanalei, and that work
would be completed without un
In conclusion, at the request of
Colonel Johnson, he laid before
the Chamber the matter of a mili
tary company for Kauai, which
the military department is very
anxious to .organize, '
After a notice of amendments to
the by laws, to be brought in at
the next meeting, thfc very suc
cessful session closed.
JUGD TELLS ABOUT
The following letter ol interest
to Kauai appeared in the last issue
of the Hawaiian Forester and
"Ironwood trees of the species
known a s Casuarina quadrivalois
were cut in April, 1915, on a plot
of land a little over half an arre in
area near the Lihue church, Lihue,
Kauai. These had been planted
in 1896 and up to the time of the
final cut the plot had been thinned
out several times. The cut from
this plot, of .6 acre was 226 trees
which yielded 39 cords of firewood.
At this rate the yield in wood for
this species in this locality should
be 65 cords per acre at the end of
19 years, which represents a growth
of 3.42 cords per acre per an
num. This is a better showing
than available records of the yield
in woodlots of blue gum, eucalyptus
globulus, in these islands.
"The wood of this ironwood is
excellent for feul and and it is us
ed extensively for this purpose in
Lihue, where it now sells for S8
per cord, delivered. The tops and
branches even down to one inch in
diameter, as well as the main trunk
are sold and used.
"C. S. Junn,
Superintendent of Forestry."
Runaway In Lihue
A horse, drawing a wagon, be
longing to a Chinaman dashed from
the lumber yard of Lihue store
Thursday afternoon, crossed the
street, passed between the pillars
in front of the Bank of Hawaii, up
the lane and came to a halt at the
auto shed at the rear cf the prem
ises. By what seems almost a mira
cle no one was hurt and no dam
age to speak of was dune.
