THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1913,
AT Si FRANCISCO
NEW HEAD FOR THE
Honolulu A 1 b e r t P. Taylor,
secretary of the Hawaii Promotion
Committee, who returned last week
from the coast where he went to
check up on tourist business to the
islands, gave considerable promi
nence to the Garden Island in his
lectures, particularly emphasizing
Kauai as one of the most attrac
tive of all the islands in point of
canyons, mountains and verdure
The promotionist gave several
lectures on the Pacific Coast from
Portland to Los Angeles, his first
one being given before the Royal
Rosarians of Portland, as the Repa
rians plan to visit the islands dur
ing the coming carnival. Mr.
Tavlor's set of stereopticon slidrs
included a large number of views
o f Kauai. The Barking Sand
pictures and description thereof,
created considerable merriment and
after the lecture Mr. Tavlor was
asked if it reallv was true that the
sands made such a barking sound.
The same ouestion was asked a!
Los Angeles when he gave his
talk at the Polytechnic high school.
While traveling from Portland
to San Francisco on ihe Shasta
Limited, of the Southern Pacific
road, many of ihe passengers na
turally were commenting on the
grandeur of the scenery and tlie
great canyons through which the
trains passed. The island man had
his little say about the moun
tains, and amazed his fellow pas
sengers in the rear of the observa
tion car when he slated that there
were canyons on the island of
Kauai deeper than those through
which the train passed, or conti
guous thereto. This gave him an
opportunity t o speak a t some
length regarding the Waimea and
Olokele canyons and the remark
able soil coloring found in them.
The great height of the moun
tains of Mauna Kea and Mauna
Loa were also naturally included
in the discussion of mountains,
the result being that several of
the people stated they hoped to be
able to come to the islands and set
for themselves. Many have plan
ned for years to visit the islands,
Mr. Taylor says, at some time or
other, but the opportunity has
never actually come to them.
In San Francisco Mr. Taylor
came across several Kauaians, or
former Kauaians, among them
being young Mr. Rice, now on
Maui, and quite the tallest man
seen in the corridors of the St
Francis hotel, until Robert Horner
of Honolulu came along to meet
him. They towered fai and above
all other frequenters at the St.
Francis at that time, declared Tay
Mr. Tavlor says that the scenic
attractions of Kauai are to be ac
centuated in every way by the
Promotion Committee and that a
revision of the literature of the
committee is now under way and
more details will be presented re
garding the Garden Island. An
other evidence of the Promotion
Committee's activities in favor of
Kauai was the sending of Fred
Halton, who was recently selected
to represent the committee in San
Francisco, to Kauai for a week's
stay, to personally acquaint him
self with the island's attractions
That the new industrial schools
board, when it holds its i.iitial
meeting early i n January, will
oust" Hugh Tucker as principal
of the boys' industrial school at
VVaialee, Oahu, and proceed with

pal, is the report which is going
about Honolulu. The members of
the board are: A. F. Griffiths,
Circuit Judge Whitney, Dr. C. B.
Cooper, Bertha Ben Taylor, Fath
er Valentin, Mrs. A. L. Andrews
and Mrs. F. W. Macfarlane.

probation officer; Beitram G. Riv-
enburgh, former superintendent

ton, a member of the Honolulu
detective force. No definite policy
as to the management of the two
industrial schools has yet been de
cided upon, it is reported.
The territorial grand jury now
has under investigation the recent
"mutiny,' at the school at Waia
lee, which resulted in 'the escape
of 54 boys, all of whom were cap
tured shortiy after the getaway.
According to City Attorney Brown,
he will endeavor to have indicted
the 15 boys said to be the ring
leaders in the "mutiny,"

Mr. Spalding, head of the Spalding Construction Company, of Honolulu, arrived at Lihue Fri
day morning to figure on the new theater building to be erected by the Lihue Plantation Company
opposite Lihue Store, on the site of the present picture show house and adjoining stables. The above
picture is not a good one of the fine, new building as it will appear, as it is too distant to bring out
the attractive points of the structure. The theater entrance is the daik section at the center of the

For Frying-For Shortening
" For Cake Making
There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable.
The same Crisco can be used to fry fish, onions, dough
nuts, etc., merely by straining out the food particles
after each frying.
Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richnessat smaller cost, It brings cake
making back to popularity. Butter bills are reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.
