The first battalion, Fourth In
fantry, gave a delightful entertain
ment and dance in Lihue Social
hall Saturday evening. Owing to
bad .weather the attendane was not
large,' but what , was- lacking in
numbers was made up, perhaps, -in
the excellence of the entertainment.
The decorations were the prettiest
seen at Lihue Social hall in a long
time, being the handiwork of a com
mittee of iirst battalion olliccrs and
' willing assistance. Music was sup-'
plied by an Hawaiian orchestra.
The dance was preceded by a pic
ture show in thti hall, put on by
Wm. Fernandez. A number of ex
cellent, special features wore dis
played. After the show the hall
was cleared and dancing began,
lasting to a late .h'omv
, The receipts of the evening were
not large but probably covered all
expenses and left a small balance
for'thc baseball fund, for the bene
which the affair was given.

pers in -the case of a coroner's in
quiry into the death of one Domingo
Sallas, a PortolJican boy aged 12, on

his own carelessness.

Annie Lee, aged S or 'J, a part
Hawaiian and Korean school girl,
was struck by the Haimlei maii
auto, driven by Joseph I, near thr
residence of Dr. Putmah, Lihue,
early yesterday afternoon and, now
lies in a somewhat uncertain condi
tion in the Lihue hospital.
Investigation by the police secured
to show the facts to lnve been as
ollows: The car was proceeding
toward Lihue and the child going
toward Hanamaulu from the Lihue
school.' When very close the little
girl appeared to become confused
and ran almost in front of the auto,
which at that time was on the right
side of the road. Mr. I hastily
veered tho car to the left, but
the child continued on across in tho
same. direction and was caught by a
wheel, and cithe.r by accident or a
return of mental faculties, managed
to get under the car, thereby es
caping being run over and crushed.
Mr. I stopped the machino as
quickly as' possible, (licked up the
child and rushed her to the hospital
where she was given immediate at
tention. It was at first thoiight the
injuries were very slight, but later
in the evening faint evidences of
internal injuries appeared. It will,
therefore, probably be a day or two
before the fate of the little mite
will be definitely known.
Upon leaving the hospital Mr. I
went straight to Sheriff Rice and
reported the accident. No arrest
was made, tho sheriff deciding to
await developments and the results
of more complete investigation.
Mr. I is tho mail driver on the
Ilanalei route and is at present a

Richard L. Hughes, assistant
manager of the Kauai Railway, has
been extremely ill for a week, al
though yesterday there was a turn

in the Elee'lo hospital where he is
being attended by Dr. Waterhouse.
Mr. Hughes went to the hospital
Saturday, last week, suffering from
an attack of appendicitis. He was
operated on Monday and on Tues
day appeared to beuloing very well.
On Wednesday, however, symptoms
of pneumonia appeared ami the fol
lpwing day the temperature of the
patient had risen to a point which
gave much alarm. Dr. Putman was
called in as consulting physician.
The situation remained critical
until Sunday when there was a
slight change for the better. Rest
ful sleep that night brought further
slight improvement yesterday, and
last night Dr. YVaterhoure reported
that the patient was doing well al
though, of course, still not entirely
out of danger, for such cases are un
certain for "several days. Much re
liance is placed iii the splendid phy
sical trim of Sir. Hughes, which

he is suffering.
