V ELEELE STIRRED
BY ASSAULT CASE
According to the police, a Chi
nese school girl named Ah Sin
Leong, aged slightly less than 14,
was criminally assaulted on the
side road a few hundred yards
Wahiawa of the manager's resi
dence, McBryde plantation, Inst
The assailant, it is alleged, was
' a young Hawaiian named Andrew
Halalu, aged 23, a resident of
Hanapepe. Early the following
morning, before the police had
learned of the crime, Halalu sailed
as a seaman in the- ship Kohala
from Port Allen for Everitt, Wash
ington. An effort was made to
overhaul the vessel at sea, by means,
of a steam jaurich, but without
The matter was forthwith hud
before the Attorney-General a t
Honolulu and it is quite probable
that either Sheriff Rice or Deputy
Sheriff Crowell will ledve here to
night lor the Sound to take charge
of the man upon his arrival there
and bring him back to Kauai for
The girl, Ah Sin Leong, to
gether with several other children,
had left the Eleele school to re
turn to their homes far up the can
yon. At the point above indi
cated, the party of youngsters
were accosted by the Hawaiian.
It is alleged that the latter fright
ened the other children away. The
Test may be imagined'.
The other children were very
'M much frightened and their cries
brought a Japanese to the scene
The victim of the affair shortly ap
peared, but the assailant had made
his escape through the cane field
The children went to their homes
in the valley several miles up.
That night the captain of the
Kohala made a request of the Ha
uapepe police officer to find him a
sailor, as he was .short handed
The officer located Halalau and
he was "shipped."
The following morning the pa
rents and friends of the little girl
came down and laid the matter of
the assault before the police au
thorities. When i t was learned
that the Hanapepe police officer
had shipped the man away, Sheriff
Rice promptly suspended him from
office. There has come about,
however, a very substantial doubt
that the officer knew anything of
the assault when he shipped the
voung fellow on the Kohala, and
:Uit that can be definitely proved,
the officer will probably be re
stored to duty.
It also seems probable that Ha
lalau had no thought of going
away when the assault was com
mitted. Certain it is that he had
not considered sailing in the Ko
hala, for the request to the police
officer for a sailor came quite a
while afterward, that evening.
The case created considerable of
a sensation around Eleele and Ha
napepe, and has jarred the whole
community. Such crimes have
been rared on Kauai in the past.
Autos At Kukuiolono
Complaint has been made that
last Sunday visitors to Kukuiolono
park ran their automobiles indis
criminately over the lawns, re
7gardless of damage done to the
flowers and plants. This same
thing has occurred before. Mr.
McMryde now states" that if this
practice is continued he will sim
ply have to close the park to vehi
cles. He does not see wny me
lawns should be run, over as roads
in plenty are provided throughout
A farewell dance was given by
Mr. and Mrs. Moragne last Satur
day at their home, Lihue, in honot
of their nephew, Robert Middle
ton, who leaves Tuesday next to
complete his college course at one
of the Southern universities.
The affair was a most enjoyable
one. Several bridge tables were
set for those who preferred that
form o f entertainment, various
other card games being also in
dulged in. Refreshments were
served at eleven o'clock.
Among those present were, Mes

HEAR REV. TRACY
Rev. Mr. Tracv. of Epiphany
Church, Kaimuki, conducted an
Episcopal service at Lihue church
In his sermon, taken from Joh
10:10, "I am come that they mieht
have life, and that they might
have i t more abundantly," it
was shown how the modern trend
toward greaser efficiency in every
walk creates a corresponding con
servation of man's precious life.
Civilization is the power of God
placed at man's disposal, and the
secret of all social reform, the ini
pulse of all philantrophv and the
power of the great world move
ment is but the lite of God pul
sating through the soul ot man.
A number of pointed illuslra
tions showed clearly that what the
social reformer needs is tnoie man
and less law. Man's strength is
but the strength of God in man
and is radiated abundantly, so why
