May Be Idiot
The Waimea district court is
puzzled over just what to do with
a Filipino held under arrest there
since last Saturday on the general
charge of insanity. It has develop
ed that the man may be in the
class designated as idiots, and
harmless, and if that is conclusive
ly shown he will probably be re
leased. Scenery For Tiptop
A contract has been closed with
Harry R.Marcelle. the scenic artist
who is now at Honolulu, to paint
the beautiful scenic designs for the
new Tiptop theater in Lihue. He
will begin work very shortly. The
scenery for the new theater will
be quite elaborate.
Republicans To Meet
Meetings of Republican voters
will be held in all of the precincts
at 7: 30 Thursday evening for the
purpose of nominating officers of
the clubs and delegates to the
Territorial convention. These
officers will be elected a week lat

A Filipino named Marian Chim

noon Sunday while bathing in the

near one of the sand beaches lo

Mr. Theilen and family were
enjoying a quiet picnic near the
shore when it was observed that
the Japanese in question seemed
to be in distress, apparently en
deavoring to fieht against a strong
undertow, although it was evi
dent that none could swim. A
wave caught up one of tha dis

against a rock, and causing him to
lose consciousness and go under.
Mr. Theilen threw out some lum
ber to the remaining struggling
fishermen, and together they suc
ceeded in dragging the limp form
of the unconscious partner ashore.
After working over the apparently
lifeless body for some time, suc

ers and the man was able to be
taken to Lihue where the wound
received on the head from impact

Two In One
The first battalion, Fourth In

maneuvers in Lihue and also
wanted a new backstop for the

in one structure.
