A lYorse belonging to and ridden
by a Portuguese fell and broke his
kg on the belt road near the resi
dence of W. N. Stewart last Fri
day, at the same time affording
excitement for an auto party pass
ing that way at the time.
In the auto were Mr. and Mrs.
M. Rohrig and daughter and Paul
Iscnberg, returning trom Kolon to
Lihue. They first met the horse
and rider coming at full tilt from
toward Lihue. After having pass
ed for some little time, a noise
heard behind and a few pec
onds later the horse dashed by the
machine again, coming toward Li
hue. Soon after passing, the horse
fell upon the ground. Examina
tion showed that his left fore leg
had been broken.
The Portuguese staled that the
animal had gone wild and he had
found it impossible to control him.
The police shot the horse the fol

FOR COURT CLERK
ScENii: Front entrance to the
TiMii: Last Tuesday.
A little Hawaiian girl, aged
about 12, had been broui'ht from
Hanalei to be sent to the Girl's In
dustrial School, at Honolulu. She
was in the waiting aulo, and kind
ly Judge Dickey was talking to
her, while the court clerk went in
to the building to get certain pa
pers. Upou sight of the clerk
(Mr, Dean) returning, the mite of
humanity bounded from the ma
chine and started running lull
speed down the driveway toward
"What is she doing?" gasped
"From my viewpoint,' calm
ly observed the court, "I should
say that sh.. is exercising!"
"Exercising nothing!" blurted
out the now excited Dean. "That
girl is making her get-away."
Bv that time the girl had reach
ed the road and turned down to
ward the Fairview, increasing her
speed, if anything. Dean did not
wait for the court's answer, but
gave chase. There was some live
ly "exercising" down theroad un
til Dr. Derby's office was passed,
when the girl bounded over the
stone wall into the field ot voting
cane and began negotiating it with
the agility of a scared hare.
The chase led several hundred
yards across the field to a point
opposite the wireless office, when
the 'g:rl turned a n d "doubled
back" through the cane, When
she reached the road again oppo
site Thk Garden Island build
ing the almost breathless minion
of the law was close behind her.
On the road a machine, occupied
by a travelling salesman, wns iust
starting up. The girl gave one
bound and landed in the seat by
the "drummer," at the same time
pleading that he take her away.
"The villain still pursued her,"
however, and the girl, after being
talked to in a kindly way, con
sented to go to the home of Mr,
Dean's mother. What the latter
paid to her is not stated, but in a
short time she was quite will
ing to go to Honolulu, and left )n
the steamer that afternoon, accom
panied by Mr. Dean, who saw her
comfortably located in the Oahu
An impressive feature of this
particular case is that the girl is
by no means , way ward, but a cruel
fate has made of her a dependent,J

Despite the fact that the Kauai
Chamber of Comnn.ree( which rep
resents every interest on the is
land) has reached a definite con
clusion in regard to Kauai's first
harbor; the project has been en
dorsed by the authorities at Wash
ington and a bill for the harbor at
Nawiliwili introduced in Congress;
and, moreover, the owners of the
port known as Port Allen have
withdrawn in favor of Nawiliwili
there seems to be one "bird"
around ready to "foul its own
nest." It is ju.it possible that the
party is a resident of Honolulu, in
which case he has been RUilty of
some very dangerous meddling, If,
however.he is a Kauai citizen, steps
will doubtless be taken to locate
him and find out why he is trying
to obstruct public business, against
the expressed opinions and wishes
o f practically the entire island.
The following from the Honolulu
Star-Bulletin explains the matter:
Wade Warren Thayer, secretary
of the territory, received a surprise
this morning, when he received
tkro.ugh the mail an anonymous
pamphct advocating a harbor at
Port Allen, Kauai. The envelope
in which the pamphlet was con
tained bore only the postmark of
Honolulu as evidence of where it
"I have no idea who sent me
the missive," says the secretary,
but the big .surprise to me is that
someone is still advocating Port
Allen as a harbor. Kauai's Cham
ber of Commerce, which is sup
posed to represent completely the
whole island, has come out with
statements and maps proving that
thev want the government to spend
money at Nawiliwili and n o w
comes this pica for Port Allen."
The pamphlet is a revision of the
old pamphlet which was issued on
the subject in 1912. It bears a
brief legend at the top stating that
it "Holds good for 1915, as well
as for 1912." In the back of it a
few typewritten pages have been
fastened with glue, to briny the
argument up to date.
"I have written to the Chamber
of Commerce of Kauai." said Mr
Thayer when asked what he would
do with it, "and although I do
