EXTRA JURORS ARE
GALLED 10 COURT
On account of so many of the
trial jurors having sat on one or
the other of the two cases to come

jurors will therefore appear tomor
row morning: Herman Busche,
Antone Fernandez (2), R. L.
Huhes, W. G. Pillar, W. C.

king, T. B. Buch, Karl Roendahl,

The jurors not excused, and
who will also appear tomorrow,
nre: M. V. Fernandez, Chas.
Hlackstad, Dick Roder, A. G.

It is a notable fact that there
are three preachers in the new list
above, as follows: Rev. J. M,
Lydgate, Rev. C. D. Milliken snd
Rev. J. K. Kaauwai. Surely this
is a good start for judicial virtue,
and all that is fair and right and
proper will be expected from the
The cases to come up are two
against Halalu, statutory charges
from Eleele; and a Chinaman
charged with perjury. It is sup
posed that court will adjourn after
these cases are over as they com
plete the term calendar.

The Ou Club's March entertain
ment took the form of a moon
light beach party, given at the
home of Albert Horner, Ir., last
Saturday evening. The swimming

and other games.
Refreshments were served after
which all wound up a very pleasant
evening in dancing.

I, MM TAKEN
F. E. McCall, a teacher in the
Kauai High and Grammar School,
is very ill in the Lihue hospital
with typhoid fever.
The case came o n suddenly
about last Thursday and developed
rapidlv, so that a very high tem
perature was reached in an un
usually short period, giving the
friends of Mr. McCall much an
xiety. Indications thus far are of a
serious case, although it is a little
earlv to tell with definiteness.
Mr. McCall came to the local
high school at the beginning of
the year in September last. Prior
to that he had been teaching in
the Lahainaluna School, on Maui.
Although a resident of Kauai for
a short time only, he has become
conspicuously identified with
sports and social activities, and is
a lieutenant in the National Guard.
Owing to the failure of the set
peaker to arrive, the principal
feature on the program of the
Waimea Literary Society for Sat
urday night did not materialize.
The members were treated, how
ever, to a splendid address bv

Prof. John S. Donaghho, of the
College of Hawaii, will be present

and will give a talk on the subject
of 'Tides." That meeting will be
held at the residence of Supervi

W. Fernandez has been making
a big success of the Blanche Sweet
films in the various theaters of the
island One closed last night at
Kealia and another will now be
put on. A splendid Mary Pick-
ford film is also coming. Announce
ment concerning coming program
appears elsewhere in this issue.

TO QUESTION US
According to the following,
published at Honolulu yesterday,
the Liovernor will shortly arrive
on Kauai for the purpose of hold
ing a mass meeting and finding
out the wishes of the people res
pecting the Kapaa homesteads:
Governor Pinkham within
short time will make a trip to Kau
ai for a personal investigation of
the Kapaa homestead situation.
He will call a public meeting of
the homesteaders there to discuss
the cane contracts and the pros
pects for future railroad facilities
tie will prohaUly take the new
laud commissioner, B. G. Riven-
burgh, and may take Superinten
dent of Public Works Forbes.
Announcement to this effect was
made by the governor this morn
nig. As published last week in
the Star-Bulletin, homesteaders are
coniplaiuingof delay in Retting their
contracts, many of them negotiat
ing unofficial contracts with Makee
Sugar Company in the absence o
a settlement of the terms with the
Lihue Plantation, the governor
not having approved these latter
"It has been a case of conflict
ing interests, of individuals who
were not themselves sure what
they wanted, and of the territory's
trying to protect the uublic niter
est," said the governor this morn
ing. "When this meeting is call
ed I shall ask the homesteaders
what they want."
The Kovernor says that the ter
ritorv isn't going to be forced into
hasty action by the views of indi
viduals which may not coincide
with public policy. He hopes that
a personal visit with the new land
commissioner will result in a clear
ing of the atmosphere.
