ing. She will arrive on the steam
er of Friday morning and will re
turn to Honolulu Tuesday night.
Mine Foret will be introduced by
Mrs. Eric A. Kmulsen.
K Speaking of her singing, one of
the Honolulu newspapers had the
following, in a writeup of a recent
concert given there:
A performance, clever in acting,
dainty in artistic effect, intensely in
teresting and worthy of profession
als was that given at the Opera
House on Wednesday afternoon
and Thursday evening under the
auspices of the Free Kindergarten
Too much can not be said of the
charming personality of Madam
Foret and of her interpretation of
the rythmic ballads of her repetoire.
Her listeners were delighted, and so
pleased that they bad the opportuni
ty of hearing her again, for when
bo was here last year, her stay
was so short and so many people
were away at the Exposition.

militiary dance at Makaweli Satur
day evening, and sad was the effect
Most of the society folk from Kc
kaha to Lihuc, and, perhaps, Ihj
yond, had planned to attend the
dance and see all the brass buttons.
Regimental and battalion and com
pany officers, far and near, fully in
tended to Ik; there, and it was to
have leen a brilliant affair. But
the weather man was on his bad
behavior, -and it rained most nf the
late afternoon and until 10 o'clock
About thirty or so reached the
scene of festivities, however, and
proceeded to have a good time,
whether or no. The affair, al
though endingsmall, was very much
enjoyed by those fortunate enough
to reach the ball.
Company 8 Divided
Company B, o f the National
Guard, assembled at Lihue park
Sunday afternoon and was divided
into two companies, to conform to
the new regimental arrangement
the two companies becoming H and
C. Company B was a very large
aggregation, so that the change to
two companies was quite simple.
Captain Rice, who becomes major,
bade adieu to his men as their imme
diate commander and turned them
over to Captains Moragne and Car

Heavy rains have been the rule
all over Kauai for the past four or
five days. Lihue, which usually
shows alMiut the island average in
general rains, had G.57 inches in
the period between Thursday night
and Monday niorning.Suiulay night
there were high winds, S., S-W.,

New Japanese School
The contractors will begin work
in a very few days on the proposed
new Japanese (Christian) church,
school and parsonage to go on the
premises next to Hon. W. H. Rice's
residence, in Lihue. The buildings
will be modern and quite attractive.
It is said that the parsonage will lc
a model of convenience. Prominent
people of Lihue are supplying most
of the money for the improvement.
.Manager F. A. Alexander and
R. L. Hughes, of Eleele, were pas
sengers in the Kinau Saturday
night for the city.
The site has been picked out for
Lihue's big armory. The building
will go on the fenced lot hack of
the county building, but at the end
toward the baseball park, so that it
will be open to plain view from the
road. Moreover, it will be close to
the park, which will be used a great
ileal as a drill ground.
The front of the building (which
will be the long side) will be simi
lar in appearance to the general
characteristics of the county build
ing front, and will be quite strik
ing. The drill hall, which will
be the largest hall on the island,
will be used, bv permission of the
Fourth Regiment on occasions, for
conventions and large gatherings
of various sorts. Care will be ex
ercised, however, to see that it
does not interfere with the success
of the fine, new theater, to go on
the Hale Hooni site shortly .which
will also be a public institution of
importance and the greatest value.
Tentative plans of the armory
are being worked over again and

may be completed, fitted up and

in favor of military preparedness
President Wilson said he knew not
what a daj or an hour might bring
forth. If that be good reason for
immediate uiilitarv pieparation, it
is no less a reason for immediate
legislation for industrial prepara
tion. While it is true that on any
day the United States tiny be
thrown into the war, it is equally
true that on almost any day peace
may be declared in Europe, in
which event the abnormal demand
for American products woud tease
and there would be turned into
American markets a long delaved
flood of European products to be
sold in competition with American
products, with disastrous results
that no student of our industrial
history can doubt.
"If President Wilson and his
party are in need of facts, they
need not await the investigation
and report of a tariff commission.
The reports of the Department of
Commerce during the present ad

"During the 10 months the Un

statistics showing the increase in
imports of foreign products sold
in competition with the products
